One can only live in fear if one listens to Republicans and watches their campaign ads. Republicans consistently decouple gun control from crime. Criminality is a real problem, but Willie Horton is not waiting around every corner. I have lived in Philadelphia for over 16 years and have not been...

As a black American, I can understand the tumult over First Lady Jill Biden associating Latin culture with “bogades”(sic) and ‘breakfast tacos.” Talking in part before the UnidosUS annual conference, she said “ —as distinct as the bogades [bodegas] of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and...

Have you ever asked yourself, why are so many GOP political theories race and gender-based? The latest is that voter ballots in Arizona were smuggled in from China. The GOP has decided the best way to expose this absurd idea is to exploit a silly stereotype and check the ballots...

Somehow Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler got hold of my bile duct and squeezed out all my personal feelings about Donald Trump like it was a very unfunny whoopee cushion.

In less than 90 years, we’ve gone from “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself” to “the only thing we have is fear itself.” FDR’s first inaugural address, in 1933 at the depth of the Great Depression, contained one of the all-time great lines in American history....

Trump’s revanchism now manifests itself in the second attempt by Trump to recycle old grievances, mainly from ”Obamagate” first proposed in 2017. Because Trump’s history has always been all about trying to seize land for his domain or at least dominionists, he’s incapable of understanding historical consequences. For Trump, he has yet...

I had an argument a few weeks ago over Nazis. Not the ones that marched for Trump in Portland: I’m talking the original version from the 1930s. The argument—which I couldn’t believe I was having, but I guess is a thing now in certain circles—was whether all Nazis back then were evil. ...

Trump’s decision to slap new tariffs on Mexico until Mexico stops airdropping Mexicans onto American strawberry fields and dairy farms will have serious unintended consequences, according to several Wall Street analysts. That is, it’s made the entire world aware of something bankers, building contractors, and Trump University graduates have known for...
