Isn’t It A Shame Trump Can’t Escape The Truth This Time: Woodward Instills ‘Fear’

Well, it looks like there’s no chance in hell that Trump can discredit Bob Woodward and his new book given the accuracy of his past reporting and his famous “fly on the wall” technique… Rick Wilson, a Republican political strategist, had this to say: When I was a young aide in the DOD, Bob Woodward was […]

Trump Signs Pro-Putin, Pro-Russian, Signing Statement on McCain Defense Bill

As Charlie Pierce asks, what does this man have to do to prove to the world he’s a Russian agent, puppet, asset, – put on a fur hat and dance the chechotka on the Truman Balconey? It appears that Donald Trump cannot even put America ahead of Russia when signing an American national defense budget. Six hours after all […]

Ingraham, Carlson, Trump, Nunes, Combine to Announce, Fascism Is Here, Now.

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden summed up what you and I have always believed about what it means to immigrate and become a citizen, beautifully: “It’s pretty simple, You read the document, you understand the document, you pledge allegiance to the document, and we shake your hand, and you are every bit as much of […]

Facebook Poses Clear Danger to Democratic Western Ideals, Must Be Regulated Like Utility

The Guardian published a story on the British Government’s investigation into the role Facebook played in the Brexit vote, one that is hauntingly familiar in its overlap to that Facebook played in the election of Donald Trump, such that one could almost consider the Brexit vote a “dry run.” In “A Withering Verdict: MPs Report […]

On Rubles, Enemies of the People, Tweets, Power and Fake News

We don’t auto-publish every Trump tweet each morning. One cannot give a platform to the dribbles of an unhealthy mind. It can spread diseased thinking throughout the body politic. But, we don’t ignore tweets that function as proclamations from the President of the United States, especially ones that chip away at the basic agreement we’ve […]

The Nation Is Teetering on the Edge, You Know that, Right?

I am not sure if you heard, but some Republicans actually filed impeachment charges yesterday. Yes, they did their patriotic duty in filing articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. It is a known tactic, well-studied, that fascist governments overwhelm the populace with outrageous new behaviors and false news stories, all with the focused intent upon dulling […]

Trump Admin. Discharging Immigrant US Service Troops!

I will warn you ahead of time, this story angers me more than any I have written here. “Immigrant U.S. Army reservists and recruits who enlisted in the military with a promised path to citizenship are being abruptly discharged, the Associated Press has learned.” The AP could not find a precise number of service men […]

Fox Distilled to Essence: “Cohen Not Credible if Against Trump”

So, Cohen spoke to George Stephanopalous on Sunday, sort of. He did it off camera, and revealed that he placed his family and country first, leaving out “my ass above all else;” a fact so obvious it need not even be said. Interesting that given the interview was off-camera, Trump can never know all that was said, […]

Shocking! Link Between Kennedy and Trump: Pressure to Retire?

Talk about learning of something a little too late, and much too little (soon to be remedied). Apparently, our “President” and retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy have some special ties, specifically ties that run through Justice Kennedy’s son, Justin. The younger Mr. Kennedy, that being “Justin” and not “Justice” – spent more than a decade at Deutsche […]

Poor Brown Babies Get Cages, Rich Russian Babies? Citizenship

I’m really not sure where I was this last January when stories again hit the real papers (the first ones appeared in September of 2017) about the “birth tourism” wave hitting Miami (in particular) among Russian families of means. This story ran in “This Week” via NBC news in mid January of 2018: A growing […]
