Okay, It’s Time for Donny to Go

There has been a lot of talk about the 25th Amendment and the fact that Lord Donny Trump is batshit crazy enough that it should have been invoked by now. The problem is, we are directing our ire at Trump himself, when we should be directing it at the Republican

The Open Corruption of Donald J. Trump

One of the most underreported stories of the Trump era has to be Lord Donny’s complete abolition of any sort of decorum when it comes to the federal government. It’s not just the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution; there are violations of that, but there is a whole lot more.

Fixing the Problem With the Press

For some reason, I found myself awake earlier than usual this morning. Perhaps I was eager to begin the new year or something; who knows. Whatever the reason, I started perusing my Twitter feed. There, I once again came across the biggest problem with journalism today. It started with a

What Do We Want to Be? Part III – The Importance of Hope

It is hard to believe this is a controversial statement, but given the amount of shit I receive every time I say it, it sure seems to be. Yet, I’m going to keep saying it, because it’s absolutely true: The vast majority of voters are motivated by hope. I know,

Lord Donny on Iran: What a Joke

It is once again clear that Lord Donny of Trump has no concept of his job, even after nearly a year. Worse, his lack of knowledge doesn’t stop him from saying ignorant things to people in other countries. Last night, he Tweeted the following about Iran: Many reports of peaceful

What Do We Want to Be? Part II – Fiscal Responsibility

There is no bigger joke in the body politic of the United States than when a Republican touts “fiscal responsibility.” They have no concept of what it means to be fiscally responsible and they treat tax dollars as both the product of massive thievery as well as their own personal

What Do We Want to Be? Part I

As a lifelong progressive who really, truly wants to live in the greatest country in the world, I find both the progressive movement and the country at a crossroads. There are two fundamental questions that we as a movement must ask and answer if we are to finally be successful.

Even Republicans Are Getting Tired of This…

There is a tendency on the part of most “political junkies” to lump everyone in a political party or a political subgroup together, as if all tens of millions of people who register that way are largely the same. We suggest they are all of singular mind, as if they

When They Go Low…

Among many on the left, a theme has once again reared its ugly head over the last few days, and it’s a potentially destructive one. You see, they think Al Franken has been victimized by the general “wimpiness” of the Democratic Party.  They claim Democrats don’t “fight,” which means Democrats don’t hit back

We Can Still Kill the GOP Tax Scam: Here’s What’s In It

The first thing you have to keep in mind is, the GOP Tax Scam is still alive and is not law. It has not passed as yet. Not that you would understand that based on the pall that has come over the professional left. The level of defeatism is especially

Trump Admits to Obstruction of Justice

Earlier today, Lord Donny made what could be a major error on his Twitter feed when he Tweeted the following: I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions

What’s Trump’s Deal? It’s Simple, Really

A lot of people seem confused as to what Donald Trump is doing with all his public proclamations, Tweets and everything else. Really, it is actually quite easy to figure out. He has been doing this since the first day he rode down the escalator to his first speech. Of
