7/23/2015 8:41:49 PM  Allahpundit

Video: Trump press conference at Mexican border features little news, awesome hat
7/23/2015 4:41:02 PM  Allahpundit

7/23/2015 4:01:35 PM  Allahpundit
Via the Examiner, there’s an uncharitable answer to that question but I’ll stick with the more charitable one. Namely, these people have always been willing to take Iran’s professions of peaceful intent seriously. After all, why would
