Many Americans View The Presidential Transition As Ominous

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 01:35:11 +0000

A large number of Americans are looking at the inauguration of Donald Trump with dread. Beyond ideological differences, there are concerns that Donald Trump does not respect the norms which have maintained our democracy.  E.J. Dionne calls this “the most ominous Inauguration Day in modern history.” He wrote, “Trump’s disdain for the democratic disposition we […]

Data Shows Earth Continues To Get Warmer As Incoming Trump Administration Denies The Science

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 00:14:08 +0000

Climate change deniers have been making fallacious claims of a hiatus in the warming of the planet, based upon cherry picking data. The actual data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and from NASA shows that 2016 was the warmest year on record, with this record having been broken for three consecutive years. The […]

Polls: Approval For Trump Falls; Rises For Obama & Obamacare

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 22:43:27 +0000

A new CNN poll shows the same finding as a recent Gallup poll which found that Donald Trump has record low approval for modern presidents: Donald Trump will become president Friday with an approval rating of just 40%, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll, the lowest of any recent president and 44 points below that […]

Both Parties Tainted By Corruption

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 01:07:38 +0000

There are reasons to fear that the Trump administration might set new records for corruption in government, but before Democrats can claim the high moral ground they must recognize the corruption they have both tolerated and ignored from Bill and Hillary Clinton. Two stories today highlight these points. First CNN, following attacks for spreading fake […]

SciFi Weekend: Sherlock; The Expanse; Deadpool; Stranger Things; Wayward Pines; Twin Peaks; iBoy; Humans; Victoria; John le Carré; Celebrities On Surviving Trump

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 21:58:42 +0000

I am not going to give any spoilers on the season finale of Sherlock which airs tonight but leaked out early, waiting to watch until this is posted, but there remains a lot to say about last week’s episode. Steven Moffat and Mark Gattis spoke about the big twist in The Lying Detective. (Major spoilers […]

Senate To Investigate Alleged Ties Between Trump And Putin

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 19:54:15 +0000

The Hill  and Politco report that the Senate Intelligence Committee is going to probe the alleged connections between Donald Trump and Russia. As long as it is a real investigation, and not a coverup or witch hunt depending upon party affiliation, I’m all for investigating. I’ll go with whatever the facts show. I could be […]

Russian Journalist Warns Of Dangers To The Free Press Under Trump

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 00:23:53 +0000

Donald Trump’s confrontation with the press on Wednesday has reinforced the view among civil libertarians that Donald Trump’s election is a threat to the free press. In November, the Freedom of the Press Foundation pointed out that– he has threatened to sue newspapers or journalists over a dozen times and said he will attempt to […]

NSA Surveillance Data To Become Available To More Agencies

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 19:39:30 +0000

While civil liberties advocates worry about the incoming Trump administration, with some urging the Obama administration to curtail surveillance prior to Trump’s inauguration, The New York Times report that instead the NSA is being given increased latitude to share intercepted communications: In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National […]

Donald Trump Hides Behind Claims Of Fake News To Attack News Media

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 01:05:43 +0000

Fake news has become a greatly overused expression. A few days ago Margaret Sullivan wrote that it is time to retire the term: Faster than you could say “Pizzagate,” the label has been co-opted to mean any number of completely different things: Liberal claptrap. Or opinion from left-of-center. Or simply anything in the realm of […]

Republican Attempts To End Obamacare May Have Died

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 20:47:30 +0000

As I’ve discussed previously, Republican plans to repeal Obamacare are not going well for them. Donald Trump is still talking about immediate repeal, while having no idea what is actually going on. Repeal might not be possible as more Senators, in addition to those mentioned in the previous post, are jumping ship.  Jonathan Chait writes […]

Meryl Streep And Others Criticized Donald Trump’s Bigotry At Golden Globe Awards

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 19:37:52 +0000

Donald Trump’s expressions of bigotry received almost as much attention as La La Land at the Golden Globe Awards last night. Meryl Streep had the most publicized criticism in her acceptance speech (video above) but there were several other references to Trump including: Hugh Laurie accepted his trophy “on behalf of psychopathic billionaires everywhere,” noting […]

CNN Hosting Town Hall With Bernie Sanders Tonight

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 17:44:45 +0000

It is great that CNN is putting Bernie on for a Town Hall format show tonight, but why do it during the national championship game? That sounds like DNC debate scheduling.

SciFi Weekend: Sherlock; The Man In The High Castle; CW Network News; Doctor Who News; The Crown

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 21:56:15 +0000

Sherlock began the season in The Six Thatchers with a plot twist which was in some ways both shocking and predictable. Major spoilers ahead for those who have not seen the episode yet. Steven Moffat explained the decision to kill of a major character in an interview with Entertainment Weekly: ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Just so fans don’t […]

New York City needs Hillary Clinton to run for mayor | New York Post

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 02:37:31 +0000

It seems unlikely — but the idea’s been floating around for several days now, and so far she’s not rejecting it. For what it’s worth, Secretary Clinton, we’d love to see you run for mayor. Source: New York City needs Hillary Clinton to run for mayor | New York Post I am skeptical that Hillary […]

Evaluating Russian Actions Based Upon Facts And Not Political Biases

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 21:43:30 +0000

With the intelligence reports released yesterday being somewhat underwhelming but raising serious questions, I fear that many people will continue to look at the Russian hacking through partisan lenses as opposed to taking a fact-based approach. Clinton supporters many partisan Democrats see a conspiracy between Trump and Russia which stole the election from who they […]
