The Right to be Offended?

I fully expect I’m going to get a bunch of pushback on this one. I welcome discussion about this. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is being pressured into resigning because of a photo from his 1984 yearbook, showing two people, one in blackface and one wearing a KKK costume, both holding beers. Don’t get me wrong, […]

Out-Foxed

In July 2017, Donald Trump announced that Taiwanese manufacturer “Foxconn will build a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for the production of LCD panel products in Wisconsin”. The 20-million square foot campus was supposed to cost $10 billion and employ 13,000 workers. Trump bragged that this was proof of his ability to revive American manufacturing. Former Wisconsin […]

We Should Hope Trump is a Russian Agent

An article in Wired magazine points out that, while the idea that Donald Trump has been compromised by the Russian government and is purposely acting as their agent is horrible enough, the alternative is even worse. The pattern of his pro-Putin, pro-Russia, anti-FBI, anti-intelligence community actions are so one-sided, and the lies and obfuscation surrounding every […]

It’s 1984 Now!

It looks like 1984 is happening, but just 35 years late. Because the slogans from the novel — War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, and Ignorance is Strength — have become the slogans of Donald Trump’s Republican party. Trump tells us that in order to have peace, we — a nation created by immigrants — […]

Security Theater

This comic makes a big point. Donald Trump made stopping illegal immigration the cornerstone of his presidential campaign. But he has been caught employing illegal aliens over and over again, as recently as a month ago. If people like Trump would stop hiring illegal aliens, that would be far more effective at stopping them than […]

Former Presidents?

Donald Trump claimed that “all” the former presidents knew that they should have built a border wall, and that “Some of them have told me that we should have done it.” But all the living ex-presidents have denied even talking to Trump about the wall. So which presidents is Trump talking about? Here’s a good […]

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 […]

More than a Laughing Matter?

It sure looks like Donald Trump fell into a trap set by Robert Mueller. But that won’t stop Trump from continuing to lie over and over, digging his legal grave even deeper. I love how Don Lemon can’t stop laughing about the situation. It is pretty funny that the thing that will probably bring Trump […]

Double Edged Sword?

Conservative media are unfailing boosters of Donald Trump and his administration, but this can also pose a significant (and surprising) risk. The problem is that Trump and his close advisors have become so comfortable with conservative media, that they are starting to say things that are extremely damaging. We had another example of it this […]

Trouble keeping his lies straight?

“I can tell you Matt Whitaker’s a great guy. I mean, I know Matt Whitaker.” – Donald Trump last month. “I don’t know Matt Whitaker.” – Donald Trump yesterday, trying to distance himself from the new Attorney General he just put in charge of the Justice Department. I think you can tell how bad a […]

Fired Up

The Camp Fire in northern California is now the most destructive fire in California history. With nine people already found burned to death, Donald Trump wasted no time rubbing salt in the wounds by threatening to cut off Federal aid to fight the fires: There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest […]

The Fabulous Falsehoods!

From electoral-vote.com, talking about how Donald Trump seems to be going for a all-time world record in lying: For the first year of his presidency, he was averaging about five lies a day, and in the second year that slowly crept up to about 7.5 a day. In October, though, his average jumped to a […]

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 […]
