Trump Rejects Facts When Intelligence Report Contradicts His Arguments For Travel Ban

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 21:21:39 +0000

Donald Trump’s travel bans aimed at Muslims are clear efforts to pander to the bigotry of his base and to encourage fear. He has tried to justify his actions based upon national security but the facts do not support him. The Wall Street Journal, hardly a left-wing publication, reports that intelligence reports contradict his claims: […]



Trump Losing Fights With Media, But Far Too Many Believe Him

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 20:53:20 +0000

Public Policy Polling reports, Trump Badly Losing His Fights With Media, but their findings do show that the news media, and reality, are doing far less well than they should. From their findings: PPP’s newest national poll finds that Donald Trump is losing all of his fights with the media- and voters really think he needs […]



Quote of the Day: James Corden On The U.K. Banning Donald Trump

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 01:42:40 +0000

The British parliament is debating whether or not Donald Trump should be allow to make a state visit to the United Kingdom after a petition to keep him out garnered 1.8 million signatures. Hey, Donald, how’s that travel ban feel when it’s on the other foot?–James Corden



All We Hear About Is Trump, But The Resistance Is Winning (So Far)

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 20:15:05 +0000

If you feel that all we hear about these days is Donald Trump, you are right. Due to a combination of factors including his breaks with conventional norms and his own use of social media, Donald Trump is dominating the news more than is usual for a newly-elected president. His impact on the media extends beyond […]



Donald Trump’s Lying Streak Since Taking Office

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 00:55:35 +0000

The 2016 election was a contest between two of the most dishonest politicians in America, with Donald Trump probably taking the lead in this category. Donald Trump has continued to behave the same since taking office with The Washington Post’s Fact Checker keeping score. He counted 132 false or misleading claims in his first 33 days in […]



Trump Continues To Receive Criticism For His Attacks On The News Media

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 19:46:22 +0000

Donald Trump’s attack on the media as an enemy of the American people has received widespread criticism. Carl Bernstein has called Trump’s attacks on the media worse than those which came from Richard Nixon: “Trump’s attacks on the American press as ‘enemies of the American people’ are more treacherous than Richard Nixon’s attacks on the […]



SciFi Weekend: Timeless; Legion And Other Wednesday Genre Shows; Doctor Who; Renewal And Returning Show News; A Sci-Fi Explanation For Donald Trump; Oscar First Thoughts

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 21:42:37 +0000

Timeless started out the season as an entertaining time travel series, even if not the most significant genre show on at present. As it approaches its season (and possibly series) finale, the show has gotten even better as the Rittenhouse backstory progressed, and the series moved on from its initial formula. Screenrant looked at Why […]



Donald Trump Versus Freedom Of The Press

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 21:40:06 +0000

Donald Trump got off to what might be the worst first month of a presidency since William Henry Harrison (who died after his first month in office). While  the apparently impotent White House chief of staff Reince Priebus denies it is a reset, The Washington Post reports that Trump attempts a reset with a rally, new staff […]



Late Night Comics On The Trump Press Conference

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 16:47:29 +0000

After yesterday’s bizarre press conference from Donald Trump, which has me now wondering if Trump has gotten to the talking to pictures on the White House walls stage yet, it was inevitable that the late night comics would concentrate on it. It would have been comedic malpractice if they had not. Here are the highlights: […]



Quote of the Day: Donald Trump Ranting And Raving At Today’s Press Conference

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 01:56:16 +0000

“I’m not ranting and raving.”  –Donald Trump at today’s news conference in which he was ranting and raving As I only half jokingly Tweeted: If we were living in the real world, and not a crazy reality TV show, the 25th Amendment would have been triggered by now. Here is a longer excerpt for full context […]



Two Down In Trump Administration

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 23:25:29 +0000

Two days ago I wrote about how James Flynn was on thin ice, and that Andrew Puzder’s confirmation as Labor secretary were in jeopardy. Later that day Flynn was forced to resign, and today Puzder has withdrawn his nomination. Both the choices of Flynn and Puzder were examples of poor management from Donald Trump and […]



Quote of the Day: Seth Meyers On Betsy DeVos

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 23:03:24 +0000

A snowstorm in the Northeast today caused many schools in the area to close. Said Betsy DeVos, “What? The school closures weren’t supposed to start yet.”  –Seth Meyers



Chaos In The Trump White House

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 03:22:30 +0000

The chaos continues in the Trump White House. Michael Flynn is reportedly “on thin ice” after it came out that he spoke with the Russian ambassador about sanctions before Trump took office, and then liked to Mike Pence about having done so. Getting rid of Flynn would be a huge plus. Reince Priebus’ job also isn’t […]



SciFi Weekend: Legion Premier; The Magicians; First Look At Klingons On Star Trek Discovery; Stranger Things; Travelers Renewed & Other Renewals; Supergirl/Flash Cross Over; Missy Returning To Doctor Who

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 00:06:58 +0000

The major genre event of the week was the much anticipated premier of Legion. After watching the pilot, I would say it is worthy of the hype. If it can maintain this quality, it would rank with Jessica Jones, and possibly surpass it as the best superhero show ever. Created by Noah Hawley of Fargo, […]



A Way Too Early Look At The 2020 Election, Including A Pundit’s Prediction That Clinton Will Run Again

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 20:58:18 +0000

Yesterday I looked at very early discussions from pundits and pollsters regarding the 2018 Congressional elections. It is far too early to say what will happen, but at least there is old data correlating presidential approval ratings and changes in seat in the midterm elections. There are also pundits with way too early predictions as […]
