The Supreme Court of The United States says:
“In our judicial system, “the public has a right to every man’s evidence.”Since the earliest days of the Republic, “every man” has included the President of the United States. Beginning with Jefferson and carrying on through Clinton, Presidents have uniformly testified or produced documents in criminal proceedings when called upon by federal courts. This case involves—so far as we and the parties can tell—the first state criminal subpoena directed to a President. The President contends that the subpoena is unenforceable. We granted certiorari to decide whether Article II and the Supremacy Clause categorically preclude, or require a heightened standard for, the issuance of a state criminal subpoena to a sitting President.” Read more from onePoliticsBlog

Back to school? What do parents and teachers say about children returning to school? What about the risk of infection, particularly if the virus is spread through the air?
Confederate statues and monuments are coming down. Some think they are a part of preserving history, whether it is good or bad.

From The Atlantic published on May 8, 2020: "Five Republican governors proudly declared victory over the coronavirus this week and offered up their response as a model for other states to follow. States can have it all, their message seemed to be: both a healthy populace and a thriving economy."
The "victory" is short lived. We, as voters and citizens, should voice our displeasure in November 2020. The political response to the Coronavirus is a practical and political failure of monumental proportions. Read more from onePoliticsBlog

If you want to try some exotic new flavors on the grill this summer, you will enjoy this recipe. The secret is in the sauce. At risk of sounding like a food writer for the Ladies Home Journal in the 1950’s, the sauce can best be described as zingy and zesty, packed with intense Asian flavors. It’s got a nice little burn going on from the gochujang sauce, but it’s an easy recipe that starts with prepared barbeque sauce as a base. My husband loved this recipe, and since he’s the grill master at our house, nothing goes on the fire that doesn’t meet with his approval. Read more about this wonderful recipe at recipeBlog.

(Stuart James) There are those people who rise to greatness and express greatness in their words. There are others who are elected to high office and show us just how low a person can go...distorting truth and patriotism to serve their personal needs, not the needs of our great nation.

Donald Trump: "We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation's children, end this radical assault and preserve our beloved American way of life,' Trump said. He mysteriously described those who would tear down statues of racist leaders from the past as 'a new far left fascism that demands absolute allegiance."
Trump is intentionally stoking divisions in our country. His goal is to divide Americans, to incite hate, to distort the truth. His comments at Mount Rushmore prove these points.
