As Trump travels to Puerto Rico, the White House leaks their strategy

Puerto Rico may have had enough “spin” to last many lifetimes, but as Donald Trump limbers up his hoagie hand, the White House planned out their approach to the day will play out well before Melania sinks her stilettos into San Juan. The storm...

We need every advantage in November, so let’s not forego low hanging fruit.

I’ve said it repeatedly before, and the media has also proclaimed if from the mount. The biggest problem with the Trump administration, and Trump himself, is that they throw so much shit up against...

Another Day, Another Lie. Trump Not In Oval Office Despite His Boasting

The Big Ball falls at midnight, representing the beginning of 2019. Just think if it was filled with Trump’s lies. If they were the size of a gumball, they would weigh the flimsy ball down. If they were the size of a softball, they wouldn’t fit, there are so many thousands of them.  The Washington Post has a Fact Checker’s database which keeps a catalog of all Trump’s lies. For example, in the seven weeks leading up the midterm elections, the current occupant made 1,419 false or misleading claims — an average of 30 a day. That’s pretty good. Assuming he was awake 16 hours, that’s one every thirty minutes. Here’s a lie from this morning. The inference is clear. He wants the base to know that their *resident is working hard for them, not even taking off New Year’s Eve. No, Sir, he’s on the job. Except that he’s not. Maybe the Marines are screwing up and that’s why the guard isn’t at his post. Or, maybe Mick Mulvaney has decided to change security protocols. Or, maybe Trump is just telling a bald-faced self serving lie. Again. Think of how life in Washington would change dramatically if Trump had only one New Year’s resolution, not to lie anymore. But I don’t think he even knows he’s lying. Fabricating reality comes so easily to him, like breathing to the rest of us. It’s now becoming an old saw around Washington, first there was Washington who could not tell a lie, then there was Nixon who could not tell the truth, now there is Trump, who cannot tell the difference. This much is certain — Trump spends an awful lot of time thinking about his wall. Or, his metaphor, if you want to use Lindsey Graham’s formulation. 2019 is the Year of the Pig in the Chinese calendar, but in Trump’s lexicon, it is the Year of the Wall. And a fascinating year it’s going to be. To receive articles of mine not published elsewhere become a patron on Patreon. Please follow me on Twitter @ursulafaw56

A glimmer of hope for separated immigrant families. Help is on the way.

This has been a week of immeasurable heartbreak, angst, and outrage. Make no mistake, the Trump family separation policy was working exactly as intended, and was only braked when outrage nationally as well as in congress at the intended outcome became too intense. Late in the week came a feel good story of charity and hope, […]
