While Trump lays down multiple smoke screens to shield them, it’s business as usual for anti-environment, anti-worker, corporatist Republicans

The Great Orange Smoke Screen The front pages of any major news outlet, online or otherwise, are full of news of Donald Trump and the corrupt, inept-yet-frighteningly-effective cabal of criminals that make up his administration and circle of advisors. Nearly 40 people tied to him, his administration, his inauguration, and his campaign have been indicted and more are sure to […]

How Trump’s Nazi-like smearing of immigrants gets normalized

How Trump’s Nazi-like smearing of immigrants gets normalized

If an airline treated one dog the way this administration treated thousands of kids, it would be wiped off the face of the earth. A member of the Trump Administration has now admitted under oath to Congress that when this president ordered children to be taken from their parents at the border, there was no system set up to track […]

If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Lie: The Trump/DeVos Doctrine of Redefinition

Trump and his Republican enablers, like Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, are beginning to realize that they have approximately zero chance of ever winning another election–if held and run fairly–on the issues, so they are scrambling frantically to redefine these issues in a clumsy and desperate effort to confuse and distract voters. Here are just 2 examples; one from national […]

The State of the Union is a racist criminal delivered the State of the Union

The State of the Union is a racist criminal delivered the State of the Union

We underestimate the danger of acting as if these are normal times. The undocumented immigrants Donald Trump uses as a convenient distraction as he cuts his kids’ taxes and sells out America to the wealthiest polluter often see their lives ruined. Their children may be stolen from them. They live in constant fear of being sent back to certain death, […]

Let the Gaslighting Commence: Covington Catholic High School Edition

Aaaaand, the gaslighting around the Covington Catholic High School controversy has begun. “He wasn’t smirking…he was nervous.” “He was frightened…that man was right in his face!” “There were black Muslims saying awful things to those boys!” “The press is distorting the narrative because of their hatred for Trump!” “Just because those boys were wearing MAGA hats doesn’t mean they were […]

The Face of Trump’s America

The Face of Trump’s America

If he was just a high school kid who had come face-to-face with an elderly man chanting and banging on a drum, maybe I see confusion, nervousness, and teen awkwardness. As a member of an all-male, overwhelmingly-white group of teenaged boys on a school-sanctioned field trip to protest women’s right to choose, I start seeing a mix of testosterone, adolescent […]

SECURE THE BORDER! BUILD A WALL! AND BOB WILL PAY FOR IT!

SECURE THE BORDER! BUILD A WALL! AND BOB WILL PAY FOR IT!

So, I may not have thought this out… I promised my wife that I’d build a wall around our vegetable garden. She didn’t seem as happy as I thought she’d be. “We don’t need a wall,” she said. “A wall won’t keep the critters out–they’ll just tunnel underneath and still eat my lettuce! And the birds will still swoop down […]

Trump is a loser and the emergency is that he will never accept this

This is racist crisis that we always expected and Trump needs Before James Comey decided to make Donald Trump president, the GOP nominee’s refusal to say he would concede if defeated occupied much of our political conversation in the closing month of the 2016 election. Since his party suffered its biggest House losses since Watergate, this fear has proven correct. […]

We Told You…

We Told You…

I’m not here for the impending barrage of heartfelt stories about Trump voters who have now “seen the light,” and suddenly realize that his tax cuts, and tariffs, and gutting of regulations, and pulling out of trade deals around the globe, and manipulation of the SEC and stock market, and threats against judges, and attacks on the press, and government […]

When You Give a Teacher a Gun…

When You Give a Teacher a Gun…

Here are just a few of the most troubling excerpts from a very disturbing recent article on arming teachers, presented without comment: “When she started her career, Pam’s salary was $23,000. (“If I ever see $55,000, I’ll be 105 years old,” she says, laughing.) The district is covering her hotel and ammunition for training, but she paid for her new […]

A little “locker room talk” from a Democrat has Republicans’ ladies undergarments all in a twist

A little “locker room talk” from a Democrat has Republicans’ ladies undergarments all in a twist

Rashida Tlaib had the audacity to invoke what Dan Savage has been saying for two years with his hashtag #ITMFA (“Impeach the motherfucker already”) when she made comments to a group of MoveOn activists yesterday and, to hear the Republicans’ response to it, you’d think she had said it during the half-time show at the Superbowl. “People love you.
