Donald Trump is Herbert Hoover By Dr. Harold A. Black blackh@knoxfocus.com haroldblackphd.com Donald Trump has this penchant for calling his opponents names. Although this is not presidential, there was scant little about Trump that is “presidential.” Democrats are ridiculed like Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas,” Hillary Clinton as “Crooked Hillary” or Joe Biden as “Sleepy Joe” He hasn’t spared Republicans either. There is Ron “DeSanctimonious” and now Nikki “Birdbrain” Haley. Trump, never the statesman, has called out Haley’s supporters telling them that they are not welcome to join his suppo ..read more

U.S. Senate Votes To Send More Billions Down Ukrainian Rathole By John J. Duncan Jr. duncanj@knoxfocus.com The U.S. Senate passed a major foreign aid bill recently by a vote of 70-29.

President’s Daze President Trump secured the border without a border deal. Senator Tim Scott By Dr. Jim Ferguson There’s not much to commend about February, except that it’s short. However, this is Leap Year, and we must endure an additional day of this drab month to balance the calendar. Because the earth takes 365¼ days to circle the sun, we have to add an additional day to the calendar every four years. February does have Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, and Presidents’ Day, but little else to commend it. We once had two other notable days in February because we “celebrated” George Washing ..read more

The Gift of Time By Ralphine Major There never seems to be enough of it. Time. I have often thought that time plays tricks on our minds. One minute it seems like there is a world of time before the start of something; the next minute it has all but disappeared! We are blessed with several hours in a day, several days in a week, several weeks in a month, and several months in a year. The years multiply into decades. Yet, they can seem to evaporate in a blink. There is time for work and jobs. There is time for worship. There is time for recreation and rest. There is time for family, fellowship ..read more
