Get out. From “cancel culture” to “can sell culture”, many skirmishes and pitched battles are yet ahead in conflict that seem to have less to do with territorial control and are more about subjugating people or at least keeping the streets safe. Even so, the bigger thing will likely be...

Reports in various places of locks placed on mailboxes.  Leaving mailboxes but they’re sealing & locking the openings! Darn semantics, leave the boxes, take the cannoli and the constitutional democracy. The labor slowdown may doom the entire effort despite any funding correction because IMPOTUS* continues the disinformation campaign about mail-in...

Trump got himself elected in large part by playing on this country’s racism, exploiting resentment over Barack Obama for not only being the nation’s first Black president, but for being mostly successful at it. He made his opening political gambit with his “birther” claim that Obama was really born in...

I continue to be more impressed with Stephanie Ruhle like I am with Ali Velshi as they generally attempt to push the limits of journalistic integrity the best they can within the constraints of the corporate media. Here she almost hit a home run. Then again it’s important to note that Ruhle...

More Trump bafflegab this morning as Individual-1 spins another false narrative of disinformation to distract from his incompetence. Trump is never to blame, don't cha know! x ….

This anticipated move of Meadows to replace Mulvaney could distract from the current Trump messaging. Mulvaney gets to work on his golf game for the remainder of the Trump term. He can still be subpoenaed, but he’s at least out of the WH. A four-term lawmaker, Meadows announced in December that...

Don’t worry, folks! The coronavirus outbreak may be looking worse and worse — and the markets are sagging like Donald Trump’s jowls at that weird-as-F presser yesterday — but it’s going to be just fine. I’m 100 percent confident Trump is diligently working on a way to blame this whole...

If you're asking when climate change is going to “happen,” you're really asking when's it going to happen to “me,” because it's already happened to many other people. Eric Roston Swarms of Desert Locusts (Schistocerca gregaria) have haunted parts of Russia, Spain, Africa, the Middle East, South Asia and, SW...

They both start with the letter “E” and they’re both in Africa. That’s close enough, eggheads! What, you expect the actual president of the United States to know the difference? Go jerk off to a world atlas, nerds! So at his skinhead rally* on Thursday night, Donald Trump took credit...

The horrors of climate change are unfolding around the world with smothering heatwaves, agricultural losses from flooding, and drought — higher storm surge along with powerful and deadly cyclonic windstorms armed with heavy rainfall and wildfire. The United States and other developed nations experience every single impact listed, we do....

Oh, hey, Rudy Giuliani is about to break the wackadoodle Ukraine conspiracy story wide open! This intel comes from none other than Donald Trump — the guy who thinks exercise is bad for you, vaccines cause autism, climate change is a Chinese hoax, Ted Cruz’s dad may have been involved in...

It’s no secret that Pete Buttigieg has a white privilege problem. But, to paraphrase a certain former FBI director, Lordy, there is now a tape: x So Buttigieg made the racist birther joke more than once – as flagged by @ZerlinaMaxwell – “you can tell if I fill a pothole or...

In June of 2008, Barack Obama used a rhetorical flourish that belies his character; “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” said the future President. At the time, the then-candidate was on a fundraising junket that I attended (full disclosure) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The phrase...

The world champion U.S. women’s soccer team is fast becoming the Dixie Chicks of 2019 — and I love them for it. But not everyone is so inspired. Take Fox News, for example. To paraphrase the Chicks’ Natalie Maines, I’m ashamed that the president of the United States is from...

For 17 months during the campaign, then candidate, and party clown for hire, Donald Trump assured all and sundry that he only hired the best. And nowhere was that more evident than in hiw high powered legal representation during the Robert Mueller investigation.  There were Ty Cobb and John Dowd,...

So there’s a silly conspiracy theory making the rounds that’s worthy of Alex Jones at a neighborhood bath salts-tasting party. According to this theory, Melania Trump isn’t really Melania Trump in several recent high-profile photos. She’s #FakeMelania. A body double. Okay, then. Hey, we know it has to be nearly impossible...

I have to apologize. Yesterday I wrote a diary about Trump’s latest flabby argument for building his southern border wall: namely that the Obamas have a wall around their home, so there should also be a wall blocking a small portion of our giant border because, you know, those walls are so...

You know the Resistance and progressives are making political headway when conservatives and their allies start to scream “SOCIALISM!”  It’s the 2nd best bogeyman for the GOP to use agasint Democrats next to such other conservative hits as communism, Muslims, Kenya, Black Lives Matter, ACORN, and …etc, etc, etc.  Oh,...

Hating Hillary can get weird. Way weird. It's rooted in hate-the-bxtch whining. A concentrated analog of Limbaugh's blame-the-Libruls whining schtick. Far as I can tell, this is not because of her husband. Unlike Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, Bill Clinton utterly, totally failed to lie us into...

As the nation marks the end of the four-year term of Barack Obama’s ascendance to the presidency, (or the beginning of a new term), we will once again be subjected to endless discussion about the significance of the nation’s first non-white president. For many African-Americans, this may be a time...
