This is shaping up to be quite a week for President Trump. And the best, or at least the most hilarious parts, have nothing to do with President Trump’s twitter feed. Instead, the stars have seemingly aligned in Trump’s favor to deliver a multitude of gifts this week, and that was before Iow…

In politics, there are many rules. Rules of procedure, etiquette, campaigning - there are do’s and don’ts that cover even the unspoken rules. Of all the rules that have gone out the window in the Trump Era, the rule to never, ever disparage the voters seems to be the latest on the chopping block.

For all the brokered convention talk four years ago surrounding candidate Donald Trump and Republican chaos leading into the 2016 convention that never seemed to materialize, there have been more and more whispers about the chances of Democrats facing exactly that in the 2020 contest.

Congress is returning to D.C. after a not so quiet Christmas recess. With the prevalence of cable news and 24-hour news programming and Senate floor speeches from both majority and minority leaders on more than one issue of the day, there wasn’t a lack of content from our elected officials.

Birthdays kind of lose their appeal after a while, at least that with that getting older part. If I could keep the favorite foods and cake without the aging it would be incredible.

One good thing about the internet, and social media, is the ability to stay in touch with home, and I was reminded of that Thursday night when I was able to watch the memorial vigil for Cpl. Ronil Singh through the newspaper’s Facebook live post. I called my mom the next morning to let her k…

Christmas has arrived, bringing with it the renewal of long-standing traditions....some spanning generations and others which emerge as the families of our children carve out their own holiday routines.

The Articles of Impeachment, as of Tuesday heading to the House Rules Committee on their way to a vote on the floor of the House of Representatives, is not going anywhere in the Senate. How do I know... not because I trust the Republican Senate caucus to stand strong in times of adversity. I…

It’s fascinating to me, the utter disconnection among Democrats who continually make hay over the upsetting of norms and the constant threat to our democracy that President Trump’s administration brings. But over the last week I have read or watched Congressmen and women and multiple preside…

You know the old expression, “A rumor can fly around the world before the truth can put its shoes on.” The adage is as true today as it ever was....if not more so.

I have been one of the few people who have watched almost all of the impeachment hearings in Congress over the last week. I will admit to not reading all of the testimony. There are only so many times I can see the words “interagency consensus” before I lose my mind and my blood pressure rea…

Shampeachment gets going for real this week, with the continued release of testimony and announcement of witnesses for public testimony by Congressman Adam Schiff. Most curiously, the whistle blower didn’t make the list. It’s most obviously an oversight for Democrats, who have repeatedly cla…

Mass mailer week has arrived....and we are pleased to deliver to our readers the latest version of the expanded issue which is produced twice each year by the Mattos Newspapers staff.

Impeachment fever has overcome Washington, D.C. this week, with a partisan pro forma vote on the parameters of Congressman Adam Schiff’s inquiry and his Tuesday release of 500 pages of transcripts from Intelligence Committee interviews.

When you hear the term “rivalry week,” especially in football, that automatically means for the player to strap the pads on tight and make sure that helmet is well-secured because this is about to be an intense 48 minutes battling for the honor of your town and that special item both teams f…

Just be nice this week...that simple request from my mom, and on her birthday no less, can mean only one thing for me. And that means no writing about politics this week, even though there are quite a few who deserve a roasting.

Monday morning brought a phone call from my sister... asking for a favor. Of course the answer was... of course, even before I found out what she needed. Thankfully it was nothing that involves going to confession, she just needed to send some shoes she ordered to my house and she wanted me …

The announcement late Sunday night by President Trump on Twitter regarding removing military forces from Syria was met with a collective freak-out on the left and right, producing enough energy to power the United States for the rest of the year. The noise came from all corners of The Swamp,…
