Is Rudy Giuliani Losing It?

On Monday during a Trump campaign rally in Ohio, former NY Mayor Rudi Giuliani introduced VP candidate Mike Pence by saying “You know better than I do what a great governor he is of your state.” There’s just one problem — Pence is the governor of neighboring Indiana. Even worse, while introducing Donald Trump, Giuliani […]

The Other Shoe Drops

Criminal prosecutors in the Ukraine investigating corruption have found the name of Paul Manafort, the man running Trump’s campaign, 22 times (for a total of $12.7 million) on a secret ledger of people who were given large amounts of cash as bribes and paybacks. This blog has mentioned previously that Manafort worked for Viktor Yanukovych, […]

Having Your Back

You know those people who get to stand behind the candidate at political rallies? So they can be seen while the candidate speaks? Last week seems to have been a big ironic example of the fact that the campaigns themselves don’t have much control over who gets to stand there. First, a local TV station […]

Trump the Terrorist Founded ISIS!

© Scott Bateman Trump continues to claim that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton co-founded ISIS. Even conservative foreign policy experts admit “What Trump is saying is not a legitimate criticism. What he is saying is just plain nuts.” And “If anybody else would be saying this, you’d be saying, ‘Oh my goodness. How on earth […]

If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em

[Helen Philpot from Margaret and Helen has a good rant about Donald Trump.] Margaret, which voters have their heads farther up their asses, Trump supporters or Brexit voters? Wait a minute. Is it farther or further? I don’t know, but either way the asshats they are now wearing aren’t making anyone great again. I know […]

Racial Profiling

Sunday, Donald Trump doubled down on racism, saying that the US will have to consider the use of racial profiling: Well I think profiling is something that we’re going to have to start thinking about as a country. Other countries do it, you look at Israel and you look at others, they do it and […]

The Only Way to Defeat Terrorism

A former covert CIA agent learned some hard truths about terrorism, and how to defeat it. Are we capable of listening? Can we ever learn this lesson? If this doesn’t make you think differently about terrorism, then nothing will.

Loophole

Less than two weeks before the Orlando massacre — the worst mass shooting in US history — Barack Obama warned about a dangerous loophole in US gun laws. On a PBS Town Hall event, Obama said: I just came from a meeting today in the Situation Room in which I’ve got people who we know […]

Trump and Terrorism

Every year, The Economist magazine produces a list of the biggest potential global threats. Some of these threats are what you might expect. For example, number one is “China’s economy collapses”. Indeed, considering how intertwined our economy is with China’s, and how we are dependent on them for manufacturing, well, almost everything, their economy collapsing […]

Did he keep us safe?

Sometimes, I really appreciate Donald Trump’s big mouth. During Saturday’s Republican debate, Trump brought up the GOP elephant in the room – that despite Republicans constantly screaming that the Democrats are weak on security, both 9/11 and the Iraq war (which led to IS) happened on their watch. Trump attacked Jeb Bush, saying that he […]

Is Their Sand Glowing Yet?

While the Republican presidential candidates have been talking up a storm about how they would bomb the Islamic State (IS/ISIS/ISIL) back to the stone age and that Obama is too weak, Obama has been quietly, effectively doing something about the Islamic State. He’s been cutting off their sources of income. First we blew up their […]

The Toddler Menace?

© Ruben Bolling Another sendup of one of my favorite ironic things – how Americans are scared shitless by relatively minor risks, while ignoring other risks that kill orders of magnitudes more people all the time. We are willing to spend trillions of dollars fighting this thing called “terrorism” (despite the fact that we aren’t […]

Coded Messages

© Matt Bors When I first heard about protestors with signs saying “All Lives Matter” I thought they were protesting abortions. Of course, the same people want us to indiscriminately bomb some countries until the “sand glows in the dark“. And Donald Trump doubled down on his proposal to kill the family members of ISIS […]
