Trump doesn’t care about Confederate statues any more than he cared about Obama’s birth certificate

But you knew that Like voter ID laws, the preservation of Confederate statues polls quite well. This could be an odd correlation, but I think you get what both of these wedge issues are about preserving. Trump has a preternatural sense of stoking and capitalizing upon white grievance. It’s a pattern that he developed well before he met Steve Bannon. […]

Too little, too late, Mr. Trump…

Too little, too late, Mr. Trump…

At this point, 3 days after Nazis marched through an American city, killing one woman and terrorizing thousands of peaceful citizens, there is nothing that Trump could say that would do him any good. It’s simply not enough to come to the American people 72 hours after white supremacists have rioted and killed an innocent human being, clearly having been […]

They aren’t angry about statues

They aren’t angry about statues

Someone is going to have to explain to me the “grievances” these idiots in Charlottesville are protesting about, with their Tiki torches and baseball bats. I’m white, and try as hard as I can, I just can’t come up with anything. A statue being removed? Really? When black men are being murdered for a broken tail light? When schools in inner […]

The time to hold Republicans accountable for their votes to gut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security is now

You can’t laugh away your votes against the promises our nation has made to Michiganders anymore, Rep. Walberg I’m worried about Rep. Tim Walberg’s wife. At a recent “Coffee Hour” in Dexter conveniently held during conventional business hours when most people were at work, the following exchange happened as the representative of Michigan’s 7th Congressional District had an aide ask […]

Pick a Side: There Is No Neutrality When it Comes to Nazis

Pick a Side: There Is No Neutrality When it Comes to Nazis

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides. It has been going on for a long time in our country — not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America.” — President Donald Trump […]

The Ministry of Truth has arrived: Trump administration erasing “climate change” from its lexicon

In George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, documents that contradicted Big Brother’s enforced worldview were burned by sending them down the Memory Hole by the Ministry of Truth. It’s a frightening concept really, that the government could control our thoughts and memories by eradicating any it doesn’t like. That is no longer a concept, it’s being put into practice by the […]

REMINDER: Republicans got within one vote of gutting Medicaid — and they’re not giving up

The horrors of what the GOP almost pulled off reveal both the historic effectiveness of the Resistance and how tenuous the victory over Trumpcare may be What else is Mike Pence going to say? Can he admit that “the dawn of a new unified Republican government” has led to no significant legislative achievements in six months, highlighted by a complete […]

There’s a lot to criticize about Donald Trump–why play the gender card?

There’s a lot to criticize about Donald Trump–why play the gender card?

Peggy Noonan is out with a new opinion piece in the Wall St. Journal (“Trump is Woody Allen Without the Humor”) on the daily circus that is the Trump administration, and it’s getting a lot of attention. While I rarely agree with Noonan’s “takes” on the world of politics, the thing that I found the most troubling in this essay was not […]

Zombie #Trumpcare can still die – here’s how

It took bringing a man with a fresh diagnosis of brain cancer (for which he receives government-paid healthcare to fight) back to Washington, DC from 2,300 miles away in Arizona to do it but Mitch McConnell managed to open debate on Trumpcare this afternoon. It’s a bill that’s got only 12% support in counties that Trump himself won in 2016 […]

BE WARNED: If Trumpcare passes, it could save Trump’s presidency

Millions of lives are on the line and so is Trump’s “Get Out of Mueller Free card” We’ve lived through this before — and it doesn’t end well. Trumpcare dies. The left gloats. It can’t pass! But in secret, “moderate” Republicans plot with the White House to find any excuse to get to “Yes,” even if — especially if! — […]

Some want to watch the world burn, Donald Trump is lighting the match – headlines from July 20, 2017

This is nothing short of incredible: Those are six front page headlines from one of the country’s leading national newspapers, the Washington Post.
