Trump Supporters Are the Ones Living in a Bubble in Michigan

Trump Supporters Are the Ones Living in a Bubble in Michigan

After Donald Trump’s surprise victory last year, it became almost gospel with beltway pundits that liberals were living in a bubble. That’s been followed by a never-ending stream of profiles of Trump supporters (aka Real Americans) who — wouldn’t ya know it? — vowed to stick with him no matter what. Now given the fact that Trump’s win shocked most […]

Despite being maligned and disparaged by Trump, Mexico & a Canadian forest company are coming to Houston’s rescue

Despite being maligned and disparaged by Trump, Mexico & a Canadian forest company are coming to Houston’s rescue

The outpouring of support and help from around the country and around the globe to help the people living in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey is as astonishing as it is heartwarming. There are a couple that are worth noting because they are the least likely to want to do ANYTHING to help Donald Trump’s America. First, Mexico stands ready […]

Let’s talk about apologies and do-overs…

Let’s talk about apologies and do-overs…

In the last week or so, we’ve seen two incidents that have generated an apology, and the apology’s evil twin, the do-over.   The second, and far less troubling, was the “adorable” social media rant unleashed by Louise Linton, the wife of Sec. of the Treasury Stephen Mnuchin. For those who haven’t seen it, here’s a quick summary:   Linton […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

I’ve Been Covering Politics for 16 Years. I’ve Never Seen Anything Like Trumpcare’s Collapse Last Night.

I’ve Been Covering Politics for 16 Years. I’ve Never Seen Anything Like Trumpcare’s Collapse Last Night.

I’ve been covering politics for 16 years and obsessively tracking current events since my high school goth phase. And I’ve never seen anything like I did last night when the U.S. Senate’s version of Trumpcare spectacularly went down. You couldn’t script a more dramatic scenario, with U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who survived five years in the Hanoi Hilton only […]

Zombie #Trumpcare can still die – here’s how

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 […]

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. I took the screenshots at around 10 p.m. last night. Donald Trump had a VERY busy day yesterday: Trump’s lawyers explore pardoning powers and ways to undercut Russia investigation Jeff Sessions says he plans to stay in […]

The tea party’s silence on Trump shows their hypocrisy and true goal: the advancement of white people

The tea party’s silence on Trump shows their hypocrisy and true goal: the advancement of white people

The rise of the tea party was, according to their rhetoric, a response rising taxes and a government that had grown too big, too corrupt, and too bloated. Their very “freedom” was at stake, they claimed, because regulations, what the rest of us call “protections”, were strangling our collective American Dream. Donald Trump was never a tea party candidate. That […]
