The Foxes Taking Over the Hen House

Donald Trump’s ally David Bossie has just won a four year seat on the Republican National Committee. Even though Trump is not yet the official nominee, his status as the presumptive nominee already gives him sway in the Republican party. So even if he loses the general election, he will influence our politics. Why is […]

It is all about Money

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Some of us were hoping that once Donald Trump became the presumed GOP nominee, that the media would stop talking about him incessantly. But apparently, the media is as addicted to talking about Trump as ever. After being criticized for basically bankrolling Trump’s campaign by […]

Betrayal of Trust

Dennis Hastert was the longest serving Republican Speaker of the House ever. He was second in line, after the Vice President, to assume the presidency in an emergency. But before he became a politician, he was a high school wrestling coach. And during that time, he sexually abused at least four of his students, all […]

Cutting out the Middlemen

Donald Trump’s popularity is largely based on one simple premise, that he is so rich he can’t be bought, so he will not be beholden to special interests and the lobbyists who run Washington. Trump has repeatedly claimed that he hates lobbyists and that they can’t influence him. So why would anyone be surprised that […]

Who’s Gaming the System?

© Gary Varvel After gaming the political “game” any way he could for the last year, Donald Trump is complaining that the game is being rigged against him. Is he nuts? The GOP delegate rules haven’t changed recently, and Trump was just too lazy or stupid to pay any attention to them. But an article […]

Benghazi Won’t Die!

Last Thursday marked the 700th day since the Select Committee on Benghazi was authorized. To put “700 days” into perspective, the 9/11 commission only took 604 days to investigate the worst terrorist attack in our country’s history, including writing a report that was endorsed by all members of the commission (of both parties). The Select […]

Double Standard

© Matt Bors After winning Iowa, Hillary Clinton was criticized for shouting too much. Even Bob Woodward, of Watergate fame, said “She shouts. There is something unrelaxed about the way she is communicating.” Are you kidding me?

Thanks Obama!

You knew it was going to happen. Marco Rubio has explicitly blamed Obama for the hatred and violence coming out of the Republican party. That seems to be a huge stretch, even for a party that wants to blame the foreign, Muslim, socialist, fascist black person for everything. UPDATE: And now Rubio has suspended his […]

Walking in their shoes

Important story about how a community organizer who has been protesting police killings of unarmed people (especially blacks), participated in a police training exercise to get a better understanding of the situation: We have a bad tendency in this country that when a few people of a specific group do something really bad, that we […]

The Empathy Gap

I’m not a big fan of Bill Maher, but this is pretty darn funny: How did we go from the land of immigrants (well, except for the natives, whom we killed and put on reservations) to a land that hates immigrants and wants them to build a wall to keep themselves out.

Supreme Arguments

It is easy to get caught up in the politics of the Supreme Court, especially with the unexpected death of Antonin Scalia and the fight over his replacement. But meanwhile, the court is still hearing important cases. This week saw oral arguments about a Texas law that requires stringent new standards on abortion clinics that […]

Republicans Commit Fraud for Bernie

Republicans were caught urging their fellow Republicans to show up for the Nevada Democratic caucus yesterday, to vote for Bernie Sanders. This is possible because while the Democratic caucus in Nevada was Saturday, the Republican caucus is Tuesday. Furthermore, while the Democrats allow same day registration, the Republicans already closed their voter rolls. So if […]

Dead Air

© Tom Tomorrow The Republicans have already announced that they are going to refuse to confirm (or even have a hearing to consider) anyone nominated by Obama to replace Antonin Scalia. Even before they hear who Obama is going to nominate. The Party of NO is nothing if not consistent. The GOP claims that it […]

Did he keep us safe?

Sometimes, I really appreciate Donald Trump’s big mouth. During Saturday’s Republican debate, Trump brought up the GOP elephant in the room – that despite Republicans constantly screaming that the Democrats are weak on security, both 9/11 and the Iraq war (which led to IS) happened on their watch. Trump attacked Jeb Bush, saying that he […]

Can you see the difference?

© Matt Bors How hypocritical is it that many of the same people who take up arms against the government are also screaming to kick out the Mexicans, deport the Muslims, and want the right to kill anyone who threatens them. To me, it is an old story — people want laws, police, prisons, and […]
