Lessons for Democratic 2020 presidential primary voters from your pals in Michigan

Strong women, practical promises, voting rights and weed.

Michael Bennet had “a moment” at last night’s debate–that’s not good news for public education

Michael Bennet, US Senator from Colorado and presidential candidate, had what the pundits this morning are calling “a moment” at last night’s Democratic Debate on CNN. Let’s hope that moment ends immediately. Ironically enough, Bennet’s big moment came as he waxed poetic about “America’s public schools”, a topic that has received a depressingly minuscule amount of attention. Because while Bennet […]

We have no idea how badly Donald Trump is ripping us off

We have no idea how badly Donald Trump is ripping us off

Now that impeachment is sort of being considered, the biggest mistake would be limiting to crimes investigated by the Mueller Think about what we don’t know about Donald Trump. We have no idea where he got the $66 million he put into his 2016 campaign, of the $25 million fraud settlement he paid before entering office, or the hundreds of […]

William Barr is the pardon Donald Trump gave himself

A lawyer who has dreamed of unchecked GOP power now has a client unafraid to abuse it If you had any doubt who William Barr is, your worst fears were confirmed this week.

How Donald Trump can win with 43% of the popular vote

By not impeaching, Democrats are inviting Trump up to destroy the Democratic nominee Yes, presidential national polls more than a year out are meaningless. To be fair, they’re probably about as meaningless as presidential national polls a few weeks before an election that could be decided by the barest margins in the electoral college.

How to tell if you’re suffering from impeachmentphobia

Call your Member of Congress to ask if becoming catatonic in the face of massive corruption, collusion, and crimes is right for your country. At the Constitutional Convention, James Madison imagined impeachment as a relief from a chief executive who “might lose his capacity after his appointment. He might pervert his administration into a scheme of peculation or oppression. He might betray his […]

A Democratic Presidency isn’t going to solve the Mitch McConnell problem

The first democratic presidential primary debates took place this past week in Miami, Florida over the course of two nights. Twenty out of twenty three candidates qualified to stand on the debate stage, and ten candidates stood each night (we seriously have to work on pushing some people out of this race).

We know what Mueller will say on July 24. The question is if the people will demand justice on July 25.

If voters do not rise up to demand impeachment on July 25, the collusion may never end July 25, 2019 could go down in history as the day democracy failed.

The inexcusable danger of needing to believe Donald Trump is an assclown

The inexcusable danger of needing to believe Donald Trump is an assclown

Trump is good at getting away with rape, racism and justifying atrocities, and your disdain is his secret weapon. There are few words that infuriate the people who despise Donald Trump more than “He’s actually good at this.” Call him a fool, a clown, any ableist term you can mutter to suggest that he’s deranged, diminished or flailing and people […]
