FCC Will Not Take Action Against Stephen Colbert For Anti-Trump Monologue

Wed, 24 May 2017 18:14:25 +0000

Conservatives love to censor free speech, and late night talk show hosts who make fun of Republicans are a common target. This includes the attacks on David Letterman in 2009 when conservatives falsely accused him of making a joke about Willow Palin while she was a minor. Conservatives probably like his successor, Stephen Colbert, even less. Colbert […]



Democratic Party Stronger Without The Clintons

Wed, 24 May 2017 01:43:04 +0000

The 2016 election was unique in which, while their partisans might not realize it, each party would be better off if their candidate lost the presidential election. Both parties had horrible candidates, and each party would pay a price if their candidate was president. The damage to the Republican brand since Trump has been elected […]



Sinkhole Forms In Front Of Mar-a-Lago

Mon, 22 May 2017 18:56:15 +0000

A sinkhole has formed in front of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate on Palm Beach. It is widely believed to be there because the planet earth has become humiliated by the presence of Donald Trump and is seeking to swallow him up. During the presidential  campaign there was considerable support for a giant meteor destroying the […]



SciFi Weekend: Doctor Who, Extremis; Agents of SHIELD Season Finale; Legends of Tomorrow; The Flash; Arrow; Star Trek Discovery; Seth MacFarlane’s Spoof, The Orville; Gotham; The Magicians; Twin Peaks

Sun, 21 May 2017 22:06:05 +0000

Extremis was the best episode of Doctor Who so far this season, and it is just the first part of a three part story. There was a lot of misdirection in the episode, which is part of what made it so interesting. The episode appeared to have two different story lines, but the conclusion revealed […]



Donald Trump Mocked For Claiming He Is Subject Of Greatest Witch Hunt In American History

Sat, 20 May 2017 21:33:23 +0000

Donald Trump, objecting to the appointment of a special counsel to investigate his administration, tweeted: “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!” The claim came after Robert Mueller was appointed to be special counsel after Trump fired James Comey. Comey is also saying that Trump was trying to influence his judgment about […]



Democrats Risk Continued Failure In Denying Reasons For Clinton’s Loss

Fri, 19 May 2017 18:38:22 +0000

Aaron Blake shows how Democrats are burying their heads in the sand with their denial as to how terrible a candidate Hillary Clinton was, even when Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders have pointed this out: “I never thought she was a great candidate,” Biden said, according to reports. “I thought I was a great candidate.” […]



Democratic Party Establishment Excludes Bernie Sanders From “Ideas Conference”

Thu, 18 May 2017 18:51:40 +0000

The Center for American Progress held an Ideas Conference but The Nation reports that Bernie Sanders was not welcome: But there was an awkward absence: Senator Bernie Sanders. He was not invited to the “Ideas Conference,” and his exclusion makes clear that, while Democrats are converging around a general set of ideological principles, the party still […]



A Very Bad Ten Days For Donald Trump

Thu, 18 May 2017 01:08:34 +0000

Donald Trump’s presidency appeared to be on a path towards disaster from the beginning, considering his lack of respect for democratic norms and a lack of understanding of the position. What is remarkable is how much has gone wrong in just over a week, and how much of the damage was self-inflicted. If Richard Nixon had used […]



Poll Shows More Voters Supporting Impeaching Trump; Health Care Puts House In Play

Wed, 17 May 2017 02:27:51 +0000

Public Policy Polling’s latest survey shows that only 40 percent of voters approve of the job Donald Trump is doing, which is better than the 36 percent approval in the latest Quinnipiac poll. For the first time PPP shows more voters (48 percent) in favor of impeaching Trump than are opposed (41 percent). There is […]



Quote of the Day: Jimmy Kimmel On Trump’s Low Approval Rating

Tue, 16 May 2017 00:44:38 +0000

President Trump’s approval rating has sunk to near-historic lows. According to a new Quinnipiac poll, his approval rating is down to 36 percent. If it gets down to the 20s he might start dating it.–Jimmy Kimmel



SciFi Weekend: Doctor Who, Oxygen; Timeless; Sense8; The Handmaid’s Tale; More Renewals and Cancellations; The Last Man On Earth Season Finale; Artistic Opposition To Donald Trump

Mon, 15 May 2017 01:48:53 +0000

Doctor Who began Oxygen with an apparent homage to Star Trek, speaking of the final frontier. Except it led into this week’s episode by saying, “Final because it wants to kill us.” Final frontier might also tie into the return of the Master by referring to the 1973 episode Frontier In Space which was final […]



Dutch Documentary Looks At Donald Trump’s Ties To The Russian Mafia

Sat, 13 May 2017 22:25:46 +0000

While we need the results of a full investigation to be certain, I have suspected that investigating Trump and Russia from the perspective of influencing the election results is a simplistic explanation. It is also simplistic to blame Russia for Clinton’s loss and ignore both how weak a candidate she was and how poorly the […]



A Failed Administration: Both President And Attorney General May Have Committed Impeachable Offenses

Fri, 12 May 2017 20:24:04 +0000

With Donald Trump facing considerable criticism for the firing of James Comey (along with multiple other faults), we must also keep in mind that there are other terrible people in  his administration. Among them is Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Hill reports that Democrats are questioning his role in the firing of Comey: The top […]



Clinton’s Firing Of FBI Director Was Not Comparable To Trump Firing Comey

Fri, 12 May 2017 19:49:28 +0000

I have criticized much in Bill Clinton’s conservative record, and certainly am not defending Clinton out of any partisan loyalty, but the Republican defense of Trump’s firing of James Comey because Bill Clinton fired an FBI director does not hold up. Clinton acted in a bipartisan manner, basing his actions on an investigation which started […]



Donald Trump’s Ominous Parallels To The Rise Of Authoritarianism

Fri, 12 May 2017 01:17:45 +0000

The firing of James Comey by Donald Trump is yet another example of Donald Trump varying from Democratic norms. It is a disturbing case of a president working to destroy our system of checks and balances, demanding a pledge of loyalty from someone in a position designed to be independent of such political pressure.  I […]
