President Trump is not a saint but neither were his Democratic predecessors. I am not saying two wrongs make a right but am simply pointing out the double standard liberals use to judge us conservatives.
Despite a ban on fracking within Maryland, Dominion Energy's new Cove Point liquefied natural gas export facility in Calvert County has made the state a player in the global LNG market — with U.S. shale gas leaving through Maryland and arriving in countries all across the globe.

Between President Trump's unsecure iPhone, Ivanka's emails, millions spent on barbed wire at the border, skipping Arlington Cemetery on Veterans Day, criticism of the Admiral that killed bin Laden, raking leaves to prevent forest fires and putting Saud Arabia first, is America Great Again yet?
Less than a week after outgoing Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a memo dramatically scaling-back the ability of federal law enforcement officials to use consent decrees to enforce police reforms, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights will call for a re-commitment to such efforts.
