I find it interesting how they headline this article. “Trump officials to visit Stanford” When Hillary was Secretary of State, do you think they would have worded it “Obama official to visit Stanford”. Not on your life. They would have afforded her the respect that comes with that position in government and said, “Secretary of State Clinton to visit Stanford”. Just chew on that a little bit. It’s almost like this paper is reminding the disciples of Maxine Waters that the Secretary of State is part of the Presidential administration and they should turn out in droves for their mainstream media photo opportunity. Someday the left will realize that they are their own worst enemy.

Interesting, having just returned from Australia, it's clear that the Australians do not think much of Trump, and don't forget that infamous phone call with the Australian PM; such an embarrassment. Web Link

Oh there will definitely be protests. Pompeo is a disgusting racist and a homophobe.
And he has never paid the price for lying about the Benghazi investigation.

There will be no peace until the Republicans start behaving like Americans again.

Can we be civil and not always express polarized opinions and incitement to protest? This is for the full width of the political spectrum.

@liketowatch Unfortunately 'being civil' is no longer valued in our society, and we can thank POTUS for that, he has normalized bad behavior. It truly is pathetic, a sad state of affairs.

Stop worrying about Australians, they have their own government.
Libs worry about everyone else except our own citizens.

I love how people throw out blanket accusations like racist and homophobe with absolutely no proof whatsoever. Evidently, all that is required to be a racist or a homophobe is that one disagrees with the left on any issue at all.

I also love how people blame the President for incivility. The incivility existed long before Mr. Trump was elected. I remember trying to go to peaceful events sponsored by conservatives in 2010 and how people on the left showed up shouting insults and trying to start fights.

Also, if you're waiting for conservatives and Republicans to start 'acting like Americans again' and your definition is putting on black clothing and attacking everyone you disagree with, spitting on people, harassing people, and engaging in lawless and immature behavior; just know that will never happen.

Regarding the Australians, why should the President be particularly enamored with them when the Australians and the British also interfered in our elections? ( Web Link )

@Greg - I agree with you wholeheartedly on this one. I'm very disappointed that the Voice appears to have moved from being a news publication to an opinion paper; except that some online opinions the Voice disagrees with seem to mysteriously vanish with no explanation. Oh well, I guess if the publication is PC enough, that's OK.
