Niger = Benghazi?

One of the few things we know about what happened in Niger a few weeks ago is that four American soldiers died. We don’t know why those soldiers were there, what mistakes were made that led to their deaths, why one body was left behind (requiring it to be retrieved). We also don’t know why […]

Morality

© Steve Kelly How much bad news can we take? Either caused by man or nature? Meanwhile, I had hope that we had heard the last from Michele Bachmann when she lost her seat in Congress, but then Donald Trump decided to become the first sitting president in history to talk at the Values Voter […]

Counter-Earth!

© Ruben Bolling This comic is brilliant. I just hope he does more like it. For example, how Republicans are repeatedly and desperately looking for election fraud for which there is absolutely no evidence of existence in order to make it much harder for poor people and students to vote. At the same time ignoring […]

Material

© Tom Tomorrow According to the Fact Checker at the Washington Post, Donald Trump has made 1,318 false or misleading claims over 263 days. How’s that for material? I don’t think I could lie that much even if I tried. Really hard.

More Problems!

© Jen Sorensen Trump supporters say they hate immigrants, but they only hate immigrant workers. They seem to be blind to immigrant companies, such as multinational corporations. Even US companies (including those owned by our president) are outsourcing jobs by the truckload, not to mention entire industries. But while the right wants to deport immigrant […]

No Problemo!

Republicans claim to be the party of self reliance and personal responsibility. But they don’t hesitate to blame any problems on someone else. They even blame their problems on children.

Fake Weather?

There is an interesting article in the Chicago Tribune about the right-wing media. You know how the right (including Donald Trump) have been claiming that climate change is “fake news”. Now that the US is being battered by severe storms, fed by increased ocean temperatures, they might have some ‘splaining” to do, but they are […]

The Two Faces of Donald Trump

Donald Trump fired his longtime aide George Gigicos, who has planned almost all of Trump’s rallies since the start of the presidential campaign. Why? Because there weren’t enough people at Trump’s rally in Phoenix. Of course, that didn’t stop Trump from bragging about the size of the rally, calling it a “packed house” and saying […]

Total Flop

This has to be the flip-flop of the year. Is Donald Trump really going to hold the federal budget hostage just because he is a terrible negotiator?

Whistling Dixie

© Brian McFadden Every since Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” Republicans have been courting racists and bigots in the name of states rights, voter fraud laws, harsh and excessive drug laws aimed primarily at minorities, attacks on immigrants, “three strikes”, “stand your ground” and other racist laws. The one thing they can’t stand is someone actually, you […]

When is Terrorism not Terrorism?

When it is committed by someone from a group of people who voted for Donald Trump. You know, like white supremacists. Even The Economist, normally not overly concerned with civil rights, condemned Trump: DEEP down, it is always about him. What the world thinks of him. The applause that is his due. The glory that […]

Voting Machine Village

This weekend, attendees at a large cybersecurity conference were invited to try their hands at hacking 30 voting machines. The conference had acquired the machines and set up a “voting machine village“. Every single machine was hacked. The first ones in less than 90 minutes. Some were hacked with no physical contact. And remember that […]

Congressional Sexism?

Some people have started to notice something interesting. All attention was focused on John McCain as he made a dramatic return to the Senate after being diagnosed with cancer, giving a speech that received a standing ovation, and then voting against the Obamacare repeal. Ironically, there was another senator who was also recently diagnosed with […]

Shiny Object

© Barry Deutsch Why did Donald Trump lash out against transgendered soldiers on Twitter? After all, during the presidential campaign he made it clear that he didn’t care one way or another about transgendered issues. And Trump’s tweets came out of nowhere, as he never even bothered to talk to the military before he tweeted […]

Tired?

© Scott Stantis Donald Trump keeps attacking his own Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, complaining that Sessions should not have recused himself from investigating Russia and that Sessions should be spending more time prosecuting Hilary Clinton. I guess Trump is admitting that he somehow didn’t appoint the best people (except that nothing is ever Trump’s fault). […]
