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). […]

Bad Boys, Whatcha Gonna Do?

© Ruben Bolling Remember, it isn’t a crime when the president does it, or someone does it for him. I have a theory about this, I call it the “good/bad syndrome”. It is the idea that there are two types of people: good guys and bad guys. It doesn’t matter what anyone does. If they […]

Sessions Perjured Himself, Twice

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is supposed to be our country’s top law enforcer, but evidence appeared on Friday that Sessions perjured himself twice. The first time we already knew about. It was when Sessions was being confirmed, when under questioning Sessions said “I did not have communications with the Russians.” After confirmation, we found out […]

Not Made In America

Donald Trump decided to celebrate this week as “Made in America” week, saying “Remember the old days, you used to have ‘Made in the USA’. We’re going to put that brand on our products because it means it’s the best.” Then he held an event at the White House where he highlighted products made in […]

Suspension of Disbelief

© Tom Tomorrow Why do Donald Trump supporters believe anything he says? How can they believe such a flimsy story about meeting with the Russians? Even Trump jokes about his constant habit of lying. On Monday at an event at the White House, Trump said: We’ve signed more bills — and I’m talking about through […]

Whataboutism!

© Clay Bennett Team Trump spent this weekend engaging in a propaganda technique called “Whataboutism” that is similar to a technique often used by young children. Whataboutism is used to deflect attention from bad behavior by claiming that other people are at fault, like “All the other kids do it!” or “It wasn’t my fault!”. […]

Better Health Care?

© Tom Tomorrow The Republicans keep claiming that the Obamacare exchanges are collapsing. I guess they think that if they repeat it often enough, it will be true. There are just TWO problems with this. As I and many others have pointed out, if the health insurance exchanges are failing, then the Republicans should fix […]

Smoking Guns and Treason

Trump and his campaign originally (repeatedly) denied that the Russians interfered in our presidential election, but under mounting evidence of Russian hacking, they eventually admitted that the Russians did interfere, but that there was no collusion between the Russians and Trump or his campaign. Well, that was a lie too. It turns out that last […]
