No room for sense of entitlement among veterans and military families

Dave Duffy, My wife and I own a couple of smoothie/food shops. As small-business entrepreneurs, we take a lot of pride in providing 55 jobs while making payroll every week, all self-financed as saved- and scrimped-for investment capital.

This might potentially be constitutional, because visitors outside the U.S. don’t necessarily have privacy protection. But

Intelligence official who ‘unmasked’ Trump associates is ‘very high up’

Malia Zimmerman, Adam Housley, The U.S. intelligence official who “unmasked,” or exposed, the names of multiple private citizens affiliated with the Trump team is someone “very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world,” a source told Fox News on Friday.  Intelligence and House sources with direct knowledge of the disclosure of
