On the first debate night, moderators Chuck Todd […]

ACTION: Tell Harvard’s Kennedy School to rescind Rick Snyder’s fellowship

Don’t honor Snyder for poisoning one of America’s great cities UPDATE: Rick Snyder has decided that he will not poison Harvard, certainly because there are too many white people there. On Wednesday, he informed the Kennedy School that he’s “turning down” the fellowship he’d been offered. Finally, an appointment that’s more toxic than putting Betsy DeVos in charge of the […]

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

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. Or it could be a new independence day, against our own mad wannabe king. If you trust Robert Mueller, we pretty much already know what he’s going to say when […]

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 […]

Nineteen of those candidates visited Iowa recently in an effort to coax voters into jumping on their bandwagon, highlighting some of their most popular policy stances and sharing their personal stories.
