THE AGE OF TRUMP--Ask not for whom the transgender bell tolls: it tolls for thee. A hideous evil has befallen America -- it is Nazism.

The reprieve was issued hours before the scheduled pumping of caustic chemicals by state officials into Williams’s body.

Our foundational document, the Declaration of Independence, states that all men have certain inalienable rights including Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
