The World Knows; The U.S. Has Been ‘America First’ for a Long Time

This is not going to be some well-earned shot against Trump and the role he’s played in devaluing the United States around the world. That is taken as a given, it could take a generation, best case scenario, for “the world” to trust the United States like they did the day before Trump was elected. […]

The Nation Is Teetering on the Edge, You Know that, Right?

I am not sure if you heard, but some Republicans actually filed impeachment charges yesterday. Yes, they did their patriotic duty in filing articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. It is a known tactic, well-studied, that fascist governments overwhelm the populace with outrageous new behaviors and false news stories, all with the focused intent upon dulling […]

The End of the United States as YOU Know It.

Sometime between today and tomorrow evening, Trump will decide upon whom he will nominate to the critical swing seat on the Supreme Court. Each person Trump considered (there are said to be four candidates left) has been vetted and approved of by the Federalist Society, a far-right think tank which espouses to be “originalist” in […]

Trump Admin. Discharging Immigrant US Service Troops!

I will warn you ahead of time, this story angers me more than any I have written here. “Immigrant U.S. Army reservists and recruits who enlisted in the military with a promised path to citizenship are being abruptly discharged, the Associated Press has learned.” The AP could not find a precise number of service men […]

Fox Distilled to Essence: “Cohen Not Credible if Against Trump”

So, Cohen spoke to George Stephanopalous on Sunday, sort of. He did it off camera, and revealed that he placed his family and country first, leaving out “my ass above all else;” a fact so obvious it need not even be said. Interesting that given the interview was off-camera, Trump can never know all that was said, […]

Alex Jones: Democrats are Launching a Civil War on July 4th!!

Alex Jones, right-wing nut-job conspiracy theorist and fake news spreader, claims that a Civil War, a product of Democratic planning, is at the ready with a “launch” planned for July 4th. BREAKING: Democrats Plan To Launch Civil War On July 4th — Alex Jones (@RealAlexJones) July 1, 2018 This isn’t the first time Jones […]

Shocking! Link Between Kennedy and Trump: Pressure to Retire?

Talk about learning of something a little too late, and much too little (soon to be remedied). Apparently, our “President” and retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy have some special ties, specifically ties that run through Justice Kennedy’s son, Justin. The younger Mr. Kennedy, that being “Justin” and not “Justice” – spent more than a decade at Deutsche […]

Poor Brown Babies Get Cages, Rich Russian Babies? Citizenship

I’m really not sure where I was this last January when stories again hit the real papers (the first ones appeared in September of 2017) about the “birth tourism” wave hitting Miami (in particular) among Russian families of means. This story ran in “This Week” via NBC news in mid January of 2018: A growing […]

Republicans Care About Their Kids: How to Rightly Shame

Here’s one of the stories that started with a light-hearted tone, then a mild dose of “but it teaches us a lesson,” and then deeper, as I grew more concerned. Much of the light-heartedness is now trashed, because the story deserves …well, let’s just talk about … We introduce Congresswoman Jackie Toledo (R-FL), who told Politico her children […]

Trump Team “Ready for War” Against Mueller: Fate of a Nation at Stake.

Newt Gingrich tells the Washington Post that the White House and its allies are “preparing for war” with Mueller, as the anticipated report on obstruction of justice draws nearer by the day. Would one expect any other analogy from a team as self-important as that made up by Trump, Gingrich, Giuliani, Nunes …I could go […]
