Establishment Democrats Join Donald Trump, Sean Hannity, And The Far Right In Spreading The Myth Of The Alt-Left

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 18:13:12 +0000

Yesterday I pointed out how Donald Trump has falsely tried to blame “both sides” including the “alt-left” for the violence in Charlottesville, when in reality there is no equivalency between these white supremacists groups and those who came out to stand up to them. The alt-left is a concept created by the far right in […]

Trump Backtracks And Blames Both Sides, Including Alt-Left, For Charlottesville Violence

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 23:16:41 +0000

You are more likely to be attacked by Donald Trump if you say his inauguration crowd was not the largest ever than if you are a homicidal neo-Nazi who drove a car into a crowd. It should have been a no-brainer to come out speak out against white supremacist groups such as neo-Nazis and the […]

Kid Rock Might Not Be Allowed To Run For Michigan Senate Under Stage Name

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 18:42:42 +0000

Robert Ritchie, better known as Kid Rock, has been talking about running against incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow for Senate in 2018. After the election of Donald Trump, more celebrities might think they might have a chance, but there is certainly no guarantee that they can win. I wouldn’t be surprised if there wasn’t a backlash […]

The series finale of Orphan Black aired last night and had two different halves. Initially they concluded the story from the previous week to save Helena as she was having twins.

Donald Trump Fails The Country In Refusing To Stand Up To White Supremacists

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 17:08:37 +0000

The hatred and violence seen in Charlottesville this weekend raises the question of whether Donald Trump will ever stand up to his white supremacist base. His statement about the violence has been criticized by many for failing to call out the white supremacists and identify the evil behind the event. The Dallas Morning News stated in an […]

Report That Trump Suspects Steve Bannon Being Leaker, Placing His Job In Jeopardy

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 23:24:57 +0000

As the picture for yesterday’s post includes a picture of someone protesting against Steve Bannon (along with calling for the impeachment of Trump and Pence), today’s news from Axios is of interest. Jonathan Swan reports that Trump suspects Bannon of leaking, putting job in jeopardy. From the start of his post: Trump has told associates he’s […]

Late Night Comics Speculate On An Early End For The Trump Presidency

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 22:56:07 +0000

I’m picturing Mike Pence sitting in his office trying to decide when Trump has acted just crazy enough that he can invoke the 25th Amendment and be seen as a hero. There are certainly plenty of psychiatrists who would argue Trump is unfit to fulfill the duties of the presidency. I’m not sure what the […]

Republican attempts to abolish Obamacare have been unsuccessful, but a newly released study from the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that Donald Trump’s actions are resulting in double digit increases in premiums […]

Donald Trump Further Inflames Situation In North Korea

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 21:23:55 +0000

The conventional wisdom regarding North Korea has been that Kim Jong Un is crazy. While that very well may be the case, we are now in a strange situation where it is not clear which nation has the crazier leader. Trump made this threat: “He has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as […]

The Danger Of Hillary Clinton’s Theocratic Views

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 18:51:30 +0000

The Atlantic has a story about Hillary Clinton’s religious views entitled, Hillary Wants to Preach. They miss the real issue with regards to Hillary Clinton and religion as her religious views have affected her views on policy. Clinton has always been oblivious to First Amendment rights, seeing no problems when her political policies violate First Amendment […]

Howard Dean Attacks Democratic Left, Forgetting What He Said About Restoring Principle To The Party In 2003; Hillary Clinton And The Resistance

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 07:39:43 +0000

After Howard Dean turned into a lobbyist for the pharmaceutical industry, it was no longer necessary to point out what a hypocrite he is.  While unnecessary, I can’t resist pointing this out. While I quickly found that he couldn’t be trusted back in the 2004 campaign, it is worth remembering that he claimed to represent the […]

Democrats Risk Blowback On Russia Narrative

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 20:18:29 +0000

In follow up of my post yesterday on the McCarthyism we are seeing from many in the Democratic establishment in their attacks on the left, it is worth mentioning some signs of sanity from some Democrats. While it only applies to some, Politico has written that Democrats fear Russia probe blowback: Democrats are increasingly conflicted about […]
