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 […]

Michigan’s Republican leaders are legitimizing President Trump’s voter suppression commission

Michigan’s Republican leaders are legitimizing President Trump’s voter suppression commission

It is a sad irony that as we celebrate our ancestors’ independence from taxation without representation, our state and national leaders are working to impose the very same tyranny on us, the current citizens of the United States of America. President Trump has convened the Orwellian-named “Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity,” ostensibly to investigate voter fraud, which every legitimate […]

There’s No Way Ruth Johnson Should Turn over Private Voter Information to Trump Commission

There’s No Way Ruth Johnson Should Turn over Private Voter Information to Trump Commission

Voting is a sacred act and for many people, it remains a private one. That will change under President Trump’s Election Integrity Commission. The commission chaired by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Vice President Mike Pence is charged with investigating voter fraud. The problem is that this is not a widespread problem, no matter what Trump tweets. The Washington Post […]

Trump’s Golden Goose Egg –> Killing the fastest growing energy sector: renewable energy

In it, the release describes how Trump has done this: Withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord Rescinding the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan Fast-tracking approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline Ending the Obama Administration’s coal leasing moratorium on Federal land Rescinding the […]
