Mass Politeness

A tweet from Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly points out that gun advocates claim that the solution to mass shootings is to arm everyone. They claim that “an armed society is a polite society”. But if more guns make us safer, then Texas should be one of the safest and most polite places in the […]

What does the GOP stand for?

The Tuesday edition of Electoral-Vote.com examines the fact that Trump’s Republican party has abandoned almost all of the things they used to believe in and champion. Instead their core principle has become “support whatever Donald Trump says or does”. For example: How the GOP attitude toward and treatment of immigrants (both illegal and legal) has […]

Not Exculpated!

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler asked Robert Mueller today to explain what he meant when Mueller said in his report: “If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so. Charging the President with a crime, therefore, was not an option we could consider.” Mueller confirmed that the […]

Trump kills the Tea Party

Donald Trump’s new budget “puts the final nail in the tea-party coffin“. At first, you may think you should thank Donald Trump for finally getting rid of those pesky tea party politicians. However, there was nothing wrong with the stated goals of the tea party, the problem was that they were actually absolute hypocrites. The […]

Hypocrisy: Lies and Obstruction

You don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if the Senate determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role… because impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and […]

Hypocrisy: Lies and Obstruction

He encouraged people to lie for him. He lied. I think he obstructed justice. I think there’s a compelling case that he has, in fact, engaged in conduct that would be better for him to leave office than to stay in office. — Rep. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), on C-SPAN in 1999, on President Bill Clinton.

Mueller Time

If you are looking for a straightforward article that sums up Robert Mueller’s report and William Barr’s somewhat disingenuous interpretations of it, you can hardly do better than this article in Politico. I find it very sad that the office of Attorney General of the US has become completely politicized. The Attorney General is supposed […]

More Trump Doublespeak

On June 13, 2018, as Donald Trump arrived home after his first summit meeting with Kim Jong Un, he tweeted: Just landed – a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was […]

Election Fraud is Real!

Ok, I admit it. Republicans have been warning us that massive election fraud is real for years. In last year’s Florida election, Donald Trump warned us that the vote count was “massively infected” with “large numbers of new ballots” showing up “out of nowhere” while other ballots were “missing or forged.” And he claimed election […]

A Nation of Immigrants!

Not to mention that these same (white) folks have committed more terrorism than any minority group. Law and order starts at home, especially if your home is espousing hatred, racism, and misogyny.

The Right to be Offended?

I fully expect I’m going to get a bunch of pushback on this one. I welcome discussion about this. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is being pressured into resigning because of a photo from his 1984 yearbook, showing two people, one in blackface and one wearing a KKK costume, both holding beers. Don’t get me wrong, […]

The End of The Wall

I doubt if anyone knows how it will end. Including Donald Trump. Previously, he didn’t seem to care if they called it a wall or even something silly like “peaches“. Now he is back to insisting that everyone call it a wall again and “stop playing political games”, even though it is obvious that the […]

Out-Foxed

In July 2017, Donald Trump announced that Taiwanese manufacturer “Foxconn will build a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for the production of LCD panel products in Wisconsin”. The 20-million square foot campus was supposed to cost $10 billion and employ 13,000 workers. Trump bragged that this was proof of his ability to revive American manufacturing. Former Wisconsin […]

Running Government like a Business

Politicians who come from the business world like to claim that they are going to “run the government like a business”. There are two problems with this: The first is that running a business is nothing like running a government. If you doubt this, just do a search for “why government should not be run […]

Trump Chickens Out

Today, on the 35th day of the shutdown, Donald Trump announced a temporary reopening of the government for three weeks. And no, he didn’t get any funding for the wall. He totally caved. Why? Could it be because he already lost a handful of Republican Senators, who yesterday voted against Trump as a warning shot […]
