This has been a week of immeasurable heartbreak, angst, and outrage. Make no mistake, the Trump family separation policy was working exactly as intended, and was only braked when outrage nationally as well as in congress at the intended outcome became too intense. Late in the week came a feel good story of charity and hope, […]
Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte is not having the best day. His extra-harsh immigration bill has been the center of confusion and dissent on the House floor. And now it appears he may have screwed Republican plans to spice up their Friday by...
The question is not rhetorical. I am not a lawyer, and I’d really appreciate anybody with legal expertise who can answer the question I’m going to lay out in the comments. Rachel Maddow broke the news last night that Jeff Sessions’ DOJ had petitioned the Defense Department to provide 21 Judge Advocate Generals, or JAG’s, military […]
“I alone can fix this!” Trump is right, he alone can fix something nobody else in the GOP was interested in tinkering with because it wasn’t broken in the first place.

What was every liberal, and progressive, and pretty much anybody with an IQ higher than the temperature reading in their freezer bitching about? Trump of course. Specifically the almost loving fetish that the media had with every breath […]
Up until now, Howard Hughes has been the most famous isolated, paranoid germophobe in history, but it looks like Donald Trump may be giving him a run for the title. Trump is afraid of a lot of things, but for some reason “the Bushies” fill Trump with trepidation. He’s been known to say that “being […]
House Speaker Paul Ryan spent his morning tweeting about the great economic gains since the GOP tax scam was passed. This while news was breaking that Donald Trump is creating concentration camps for babies. Never mind that job growth has been...
The first poll results on Trump’s aggressive child separation policy is in, and it’s bad news for Republicans, especially heading into the November elections.
