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 […]

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 […]
