“We Will Vote” – A Lincoln Project response to Trump

and his idiotic tweet about postponing the election it provides tons of relevant video, and makes clear that nothing Trump does will keep those opposed to him from voting here is is: x YouTube Video in the first half hour since it was posted on Youtube it had over 33,000 views there.

Sound The Horn. Saddle Up. Ride Into Battle.

I seldom do this. Politizoom, and our sister site Daily Sound And Fury give me a nice little megaphone, and as most of you have noticed, I seldom run out of things to say. But something has come up, and this time I need your help. A few days ago, I wrote an article in…

It's Sunday. Need a laugh? I found my flag request amusing.

I think we all need a little uplift.  Here lately, we are making our own uplifting.  LOL. I wrote this incident to my BFF and we got a kick out of it so maybe ya’ll will as well.   I get so tired of the Trumpsters in this area pushing and pushing and pushing their agenda. …

Amy just endorsed Biden and suspended campaign.

This will have an impact as well as I think Pete is not far behind on his endorsement.    The endorsements will be coming fast and furious I predict.    The ground game is about to change with these past candidates coming in to endorse.    I am all for redecorating.  This is what moderates…

Uh, Bernie Bros and the OK Bloomers?

Chest thumpers and embarrassing belligerents are how the followers of Bernie Sanders are being described.  The Michael Bloomberg crowd who I suppose are Bloomers, who find themselves in the unenviable position of defending a billionaire and racist policies, instead of his politics, face off in a debate tonight. Predictably, the candidates playing catch-up: Biden, Buttigieg, Klobuchar,…

An Announcement is Worth a Thousand Smears

Facts and figures are second to innuendo and hollow announcements in the current political climate.  Three years past the Clinton/Trump presidential race the press is still biting and snarling while circling the floor and chasing its’ tail.  The former head of the FBI, James Comey, announced in the weeks prior to election day that former…

A Bolton out of the Blue

President Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton said he is ready to throw himself at the mercy of the Senate Impeachment court, but color me skeptical.  The truth from anyone associated with the Trump administration, even for a short time, strains the fabric of credibility.  Mr. Bolton has teased us for months with his…

I Grieve

Indicative of the current climate of coddled-hate gripping the country, it is not surprising that two houses, one literal, of worship were attacked over the weekend. Rockland County, New York, and White Settlement, Texas were the scenes of horrific violence this past weekend. Respectively, one at a Rabbi’s home and the other a Christian congregation…

The “Everything Terrible Trump Has Done So Far” Omnibus (Week 153)

As part of the ongoing project to catalog every awful thing the Trump Administration has done as a reference for future political arguments and whatever few posterity survives to see 2020, here’s everything awful the Trump Administration has done this week. Trump advisers were caught discussing pursuing more aggressive voter suppression tactics in the 2020…

Follow(ing) the Leader or Leadership

The Impeachment of Donald John Trump, 45th President of the United States has made me ponder the difference between leaders and leadership.  I have come to the conclusion that Republicans require leaders and Democrats want leadership. Following a leader means you have no trust in your ability to discern facts or make a decision, so…

An open question for even undergraduate level economists

I’m not an economist, and didn’t even major in it in college.   So I have an honest question for those with some more expertise than me. Background:  I just read a very typical article that said that economists conclude that the employer side of the Social Security tax is simply “passed on“ to their employees…

Distraction versus Consequence

When Donald Trump does or says something as disgusting as the attack he made on the late Rep. John David Dingell Jr. Wednesday night, suggesting, to his wife Debbie among others, he may have gone to hell, Democrats immediately recoiled in disgust.  He spewed this vile vitriol on the same day Texas federal court Judge…

Thanks, Mr. Mason

“Shall the man who has practised corruption, and by that means procured his appointment in the first instance, be suffered to escape punishment by repeating his guilt?”– George Mason According to the current United States Senate Majority leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY.), the most ‘deliberative body’ in the world is going to speed date.  With…

My Son? What a Bunch of Malarkey!

Without a scintilla of evidence, the impression from the White House, Congressional Republicans, and Fox News devotees is that Joe Biden is a schemer.  According to President Donald Trump, his henchman Rudy Giuliani, a cadre of House Republicans, and the Department of Justice's leader William Barr, something is rotten besides their own morality.  Rumors of…

The Okie Doke

If you look up the slang term Okie Doke, the definition reads in part, “to buy something you aren't selling.”  In the longer than necessary marathon markup hearing for the articles of impeachment accusing President Donald Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, Chair of the committee, Jerrold Nadler, after 14 hours, called a…

Yes, I said it…

Attorney General William Barr is either incompetent, stupid or lying, take your pick. Yesterday in an interview, following the release of the Inspector General’s report absolving the FBI of working in concert to keep Donald Trump from the presidency, Barr responded with the words, “I don’t know about the Ukrainians” when asked if Ukraine interfered…

The Monster is in the White House, with a Phone

Six-year-old Juan de León Gutiérrez; 8-year-old Felipe Gómez Alonzo; 6-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin; two additional children a 10-year-old and a 2-year-old, both from Guatemala, have died in the past two years as a result of the Trump administration’s Border Policy. Add to that this week, the confirmation of the May death of 16-year-old Carlos Gregorio…
