Pruden: A hearty last laugh for The Donald

By Wesley Pruden | Donald Trump’s greatest contribution to America will be his stripping the media, particularly the overpaid and undereducated television media, of its last pretense to fairness and objectivity. Most of these correspondents of the “legacy” media no longer even want to be called objective. They’ve heard a higher calling, to commune as […]

Pruden: Terrorism made easy when nobody’s looking

By Wesley Pruden | President Obama is on his way out, and not a minute too soon. The legacy he obsesses over continues to expand in revealing ways.
