Torchlight Media: Trump’s Empty Chair on Climate Change

On Monday, Donald Trump literally made the United States an empty chair when it comes to climate change.  He and his aides offered up lame excuses.

…They Should Declare the Causes Which Impel Them to the Separation

On this Fourth of July, I know a lot of people who have celebration plans.  I know others who can’t bring themselves to celebrate, in light of certain humanitarian crises created by our own government with no remorse and no intention of mitigating anything any time soon. And I know of some who are all gung ho for a display of military might in Washington, DC because why shouldn’t there be?

Torchlight Media: The Darkness of Trump’s Immigration Policy

When it comes to the immigration practices at the southern border, like many people, I find myself heart-heavy and mind overflowing with too many thoughts, all fighting to come out. In such circumstances, I can’t always find the words.  Yet, I feel compelled to try. Here are the ones I managed.

Where some Americans sees proof positive of a witch hunt, and other Americans see a cover up of gross criminality, the truth probably lies somewhere in between those two poles.
