Price Gouging

It’s enough to take your breath away. Five years ago as part of its efforts to prepare for a global pandemic (such as the one we are facing now), the Obama administration signed a $13.8 million contract with a Pennsylvania manufacturer owned by Dutch multinational corporation Philips to design and produce “a low-cost, portable, easy-to-use […]

Three Things

Three things happened in the last three days that have made me so angry that I couldn’t write this post until I calmed down a bit. It is now many hours later, so here they are: First, two days ago was this headline: “White House abruptly transfers DHS official amid loyalty purge“. This is a […]

Death Panels

Back when President Obama was trying to enact health care reform in 2009, Sarah Palin created and popularized the term “death panels”. She claimed that the ACA would create panels of bureaucrats who would decide who was “worthy of medical care”. Even though this was a complete fabrication on the part of Palin, it managed […]

Rewriting History

If you ever wanted to see the rewriting of history going so fast that it might give you whiplash, the Washington Post has put together this video showing Fox News hosts contradicting themselves over the course of a week. Do they really think their viewers are so stupid that they won’t notice? Could they be […]

Never Forget

Donald Trump is trying to rewrite recent history, but he may not realize that the internet never forgets. Here’s a post from Political Wire: As President Trump attempts to blame President Barack Obama for his own handling of the coronavirus outbreak, it’s important to document Trump’s comments during this public health crisis. These are not utterances from […]

Fighting the coronavirus?

On Monday, Donald Trump announced his “timely and effective response to the coronavirus”. It is “a possible tax relief measure”. That’s it. Seriously. He’s going to talk to Republicans in Congress and ask them to cut taxes. Again. He cares only about goosing the economy, not about the people who are actually sick or dying. […]

Who are you going to believe? Me, or your lying ears?

Again. During a town hall broadcast by Fox News on Thursday night there was a discussion about the national debt, which has soared during the Trump administration. This, despite the fact that Donald Trump promised to not just eliminate the deficit (which was last accomplished by Bill Clinton), but also the entire national debt. Of […]

Sick Propaganda

It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump. I’m dead right on this. The coronavirus is the common cold, folks. — Rush Limbaugh, claiming that the coronavirus is fake news and accusing the media of exaggerating its severity. Yes, this is the same Rush Limbaugh who was […]

Acquittal

The Republicans have learned to throw everything, no matter how ridiculous, up against the wall to see what will stick. Because 40% of the country will believe it, and the rest of us will typically tune it out and ignore it. Heaven help us.

A Gift

This is a gift for us. Our internal polling shows that Donald Trump’s support has gone up thanks to the impeachment inquiry. Since Nancy Pelosi called for this we have seen the numbers go up… We can let them keep going with this because the American people are not distracted by this. — Lara Trump […]

Hypocrisy, thy name is Donald Trump Jr.

I wish my name was Hunter Biden. I could go abroad, make millions off my father’s presidency. I’d be a really rich guy. — Donald Trump Jr. speaking (naturally) on Fox News For a bit of added irony (and stupidity), note that junior said “presidency”, not “vice presidency”. Is Don-ette talking about the past or […]

This Week in GOP Politics

The bad news is that the right-wing noise machine is still spouting propaganda for their “perfect” leader. In fact, Donald Trump himself has averaged almost 22 lies a day in the last two months. The result? A stunning 84% of Republicans approve of the job Trump is doing.

Traitor Trump

When Donald Trump feels threatened, he attacks. And if he doesn’t have anything real to attack about, he just makes shit up. Last Thursday, Trump compared the whistleblower and anyone in the White House who might have given information to that person to spies and that what they had done was treason, and suggested that […]

The Crime and the Coverup

Direct quotes from the whistleblower memo: I have received information from multiple U.S. Government officials that the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election. The interference includes, among other things, pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of […]

The Cookie Crumbles

This comic is spot on. As detailed in this article published by NPR, Donald Trump first claimed that the reason he blocked critical aid to Ukraine was because of concerns over corruption in that country. However, the Department of Defense back in May (before Trump blocked the aid in July) “certified that the Government of […]
