Trump Republican of the Day: Their Money is My Money

Paul Ryan must have a really big headache by now. New Hampshire Republican Rep. Frank Guinta seem to have a difficult time deciding which money belongs to his parents and which belongs to him because he keeps trying to break FEC rules. See, back in 2015, he admitted to having accepted contributions

Alt-Right, My Ass

I wasn’t sure how I felt about the suddenly-popular term “alt-right” at first, but now I flat-out reject it. Given that the Republican Party made a conscious decision to recruit racists and bigots into their fold way back in 1964 because they were tired of losing, how “alt” can the

Guest Post – Mary Lyon: My Beloved AP’s Epic Fail

by Mary Lyon, award-winning reporter and writer Listening to Donald Trump’s latest blathering in Manchester, New Hampshire sent a brand new set of chills racing down my spine. His riffing off a recent Associated Press story about purported malfeasance between Hillary Clinton’s service as Secretary of State and the Clinton

Trump Republican of the Day: Former Cop Steals Yard Signs

You can’t make this shit up. In Tennessee, a Republican state lawmaker, Rep. Curry Todd of Collierville, has been charged with stealing an opponent’s yard signs a month before the primary election that was held back on August 4. He lost his primary, anyway and, instead of running as an

Swiftboating Hillary.

Everyone who is trashing the shit out of Hillary Clinton because of the Clinton Foundation should be ashamed of themselves. Seriously ashamed. However, the progressives who are implying that the Clinton Foundation is little more than a honey pot for the Clintons are demonstrating way too much ignorance. This is

Trump Republican of the Day: Governor Scott Walker

I see Scott Walker Tweeting all sorts of negative anti-Hillary BS for public consumption, but it seems that many of Walker’s public appearances are, well, a lot less than “public.” Last month, Rep. Dana Wachs, who is considering a run for governor in 2018, Tweeted the following: Walker holding listening sessions:

Neocon revival

What Do Modern Republicans Stand For? Heh.

We talk a lot of about Republicans and the right wing, but why? How many progressives truly understand what their ideology is about? I don’t mean reflexively being against them because you’re supposed to be. I’m talking about what the base of the Republican Party actually stands for. This is

No Room for Progressive Complacency

We really can’t afford to be complacent. I mean that more literally than I have ever meant it. Yes, I know – every election in the last 20 years has been “the most important in our lifetime.” You’re tired of hearing it. That’s just too damn bad, to be honest.

Voter Suppression Can Only Work if…

Anyone who thinks the Republican “message” is why they keep beating us in elections is remarkably gullible. There I said it. Phew. Republicans win because of a two-pronged approach that we could counter easily, if PUBs and the professional left were just a bit smarter. Sorry guys, but this is

Founders of ISIL 2

The Real Founders of ISIL

Donald Trump seems to be confused, but he’s not. When it comes to talking about ISIL/Daesh, Trump is doing what he’s done all along; his people are listening to and reading the professional right wing and he’s mimicking whatever they hear. This is because that is the only way he

About Cartoon Hillary…

If there is one thing that makes this election different than past elections, it is in the sheer volume of bullshit being flung about. There are times when I feel like I’m in the monkey cage at the zoo. Of course, I will get to Trump; he’s practically a steaming

The GOP’s Vision of an Economic Hellscape is BS

If you watched the Republican Convention a couple weeks ago, you saw a major political party tell you the United States is pretty much an economic hellscape. If you listened to their rhetoric and took seriously, you had to walk away convinced that The Grapes of Wrath was real and

Trump: Dead Man Walking? We Can’t Afford to Think So

I have been saying all along that Donald Trump is not running for president because he wants to be president. All of us thought he would have a snowball’s chance in hell because we figured the GOP and the RNC had the means to stop him. I am convinced that

We’re Not Electing a Homecoming King/Queen

Once again, if you’re a “political junkie” who depends on what you laughingly refer to as “the mainstream media” for all of your information about the election, you are literally screwing yourself. That is not an exaggeration at all. Oh, sure, you can find the information you need if you look

Document Dumpers are Not “Heroes”

Just before the convention last week, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) had to deal with the release of thousands of emails through Julian Assange and Wikileaks. According to most sources investigating this matter, it is likely the hack that led to the email release was conducted by Russian intelligence, which
