Dumb as a Rock

Who hires people like this? © Nick Anderson We did! We hired Donald Trump. And he hired a bunch of crooks and liars, just like himself. If you really want to see someone as dumb as a rock, consider that Trump decided to hold a negotiating session on live TV with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck […]

Safety and Liberty

In 1775, Benjamin Franklin famously wrote, “They who can give up essential Liberty to obtain a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” We should all remember that when we consider the actions and words of Donald Trump this Thanksgiving weekend, when he attacked the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals because they would not […]

The only thing we have to fear…

© Rob Rogers Could this election get any sillier? Is the dominant topic really a small, ragtag bunch of refugees fleeing Honduras in Central America? They have just only crossed the border into the most southern part of Mexico, and their numbers are already decreasing. Apparently they are going to walk north across mountainous country […]

A nation of immigrants

Stephen Colbert is on a roll. And Donald Trump is out of control.

Happy Halloween!

The scariest things this Halloween are Fox News and Donald Trump. Even though they are trying to scare everyone by claiming that the US is being invaded by immigrants. You know, immigrants, like the ancestors of almost everyone in the US. Indeed, the immigrants already invaded, long ago. © Keef Knight

Birthright Citizenship

Yesterday, Donald Trump said he was going to end birthright citizenship, which is the right of people born on US soil to become US citizens. Trump claims he can do this with an executive order. Most of the response to this concentrated on pointing out that you can’t just overrule the 14th amendment to the […]

Immigration Hypocrisy

Everyone has been focused on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, so of course the Republicans have taken this distraction as an opportunity to sneak in some things they wanted. Probably the most hypocritical example is a proposed new regulation that affects legal immigrants. The new regulation will deny “green cards” (residency) to legal immigrants if […]

Another disaster

Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the eastern coast of the US. According to the National Weather Service, “This will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast, and that’s saying a lot given the impacts we’ve seen from Hurricanes Diana, Hugo, Fran, Bonnie, Floyd, and Matthew. I can’t emphasize […]

More Problems!

© Jen Sorensen Trump supporters say they hate immigrants, but they only hate immigrant workers. They seem to be blind to immigrant companies, such as multinational corporations. Even US companies (including those owned by our president) are outsourcing jobs by the truckload, not to mention entire industries. But while the right wants to deport immigrant […]

No Problemo!

Republicans claim to be the party of self reliance and personal responsibility. But they don’t hesitate to blame any problems on someone else. They even blame their problems on children.

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?

Trump Attacks Constitution?

Donald Trump is getting easier to predict. When everyone pointed out the hypocrisy of Trump calling his executive order against Muslims entering the US a “Travel Ban” even as his administration was claiming that it wasn’t a travel ban at all, Trump doubled down. And you know he is serious, because he used ALL CAPS, […]

Aliens!

The White House announced a new hotline to help victims or witnesses report crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. You know, because 911 wasn’t enough. Well, unless if your goal was to foster racism and xenophobia. After all, studies have shown that illegal immigrants are far less likely to commit crimes than native-born Americans (other than […]

As Real as Trump

© David Horsey Hey, why not just claim victory and move on? After all, most people didn’t believe Donald Trump when he (over and over and over again) claimed that he would build a wall and Mexico would pay for it. And if someone was stupid enough to believe that, then they would probably believe […]

What’s the Big Deal?

First Trump can’t make a deal with even Republican congressmen over repealing Obamacare. Now, Trump has now asked Congress for a billion dollars to build his wall. I guess he couldn’t get Mexico to pay for it. So much for his claimed deal-making abilities. But wait, it is worse than that. A billion dollars will […]
