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.

It goes on and on…

Are people really surprised that rich people have managed to tilt the playing field? And yes, Trump really did grope a flag during his speech at CPAC. Or as Stephen Colbert joked, “First time a flag’s ever volunteered to be burned.”

It has finally come to this

Republicans are attempting to discredit Michael Cohen as a liar, even though he lied to Congress because Donald Trump told him to. Trump himself called Cohen a “bad lawyer and fraudster”, even though Cohen worked for Trump as his personal lawyer (and fixer) for more than a decade. For Trump, the buck never stops anywhere […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
