What really happened in Niger?

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 21:22:01 +0000

Today’s White House press briefing was unusually illuminating. Spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked a lot of questions about the growing scandal over Donald Trump’s mishandling of the failed Niger mission that killed four American service members. Specifically, Trump has been hammered over why he failed to offer his condolences to the families of the […]



Anderson Cooper blasts Trump for using Gen. Kelly’s dead son as political fodder

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 17:56:25 +0000

Yesterday, Donald Trump used the dead son of his chief of staff, General John Kelly, as political fodder. Trump was fighting back against a growing chorus of condemnation over his failure to reach out to the family of four US service members who died two weeks ago in Niger. When asked the other day about […]



Sean Hannity, useful idiot.

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 16:04:59 +0000

In national security circles, a “useful idiot” is an American citizen who unwittingly works for a foreign intelligence agency, and is so dumb that he doesn’t even realize that he’s selling out his own country. In Sean Hannity’s case, the term useful idiot might be too generous. Hannity, and Fox News overall, have found Julian-Assange-Jesus, […]



The Case for Impeachment

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 18:29:35 +0000

The news from Puerto Rico grows more dire. Donald Trump revs up his efforts to incite war with North Korea and Iran. Trump last week took new steps to undercut the Affordable Care Act, a move that will premiums by 20% around the country. And just today, Trump yet again took Russia’s side against our […]



World War III

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 13:09:00 +0000

GOP senator Bob Corker warns of World War III under Donald Trump (I think he meant both North Korea and Iran), and Steve Bannon declares war on the Republican party. I’m looking forward to the latter, more than the former. Having said that, even Bannon’s effort to take on a number of GOP incumbents in […]



Neither Weinstein nor Trump

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 14:49:50 +0000

Republicans are trying to hang accused sexual harasser, and big Democratic donor, Harvey Weinstein around the Democrats’ neck, but they forget one thing: We didn’t make our sexual predator president; they did. In this premium episode of our podcast, John and Cliff talk in depth about the Weinstein scandal, the GOP’s double standard on sex […]



I did Nazi that coming

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 00:37:36 +0000

A Black Lives Matter chapter in Virginia recently shut down an ACLU training about protecting protesters’ freedom of speech because, the BLM activists argue, the ACLU supports Hitler. They’re talking about the ACLU having defended the freedom of speech rights of white supremacists before the violent march in Charlottesville (the city didn’t want to give […]



“Radical Islamic deer” and the violence in Vegas

Wed, 04 Oct 2017 00:23:05 +0000

At least 59 are dead in Las Vegas and over 500 injured after a gunman went on a rampage that’s become an all-too-familiar sight. In our latest podcast, Cliff Schecter and I do a deep dive into the politics of guns, and what if anything can be done to stop the growing violence. In essence, […]



GOP to let felons skip background checks for silencers

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 16:19:40 +0000

In the wake of yet another mass-shooting, this time in Las Vegas, the Republican Congress is planning to vote this week on legislation permitting felons, and everyone else, to buy silencers without a background check. Under current law, everyone must get a background before buying a silencer, and then they have to register it. Under […]



It’s time for a somber national discussion about [insert latest mass shooting here]

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 14:00:00 +0000

Another mass-murder in America by gunfire. It's time for candlelight vigils & other meaningless gestures.



Stop playing golf and do your damn job

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 14:31:14 +0000

Most of us didn’t vote for Donald Trump. And we know his campaign colluded with the Russians when he wasn’t busy bragging about groping women, ogling teenage beauty queens, and denigrating Muslims, Latinos, African-Americans, immigrants, women, veterans, the media, the intelligence community, our armed forces, and people with disabilities. Admittedly, none of us are racists. […]
