I have rolled a question around in my head for months; why are Republicans so mean? I have concluded that it is not meanness, it is fear. The fear of betraying the religion of Trump and fear of being called stupid. Having a point and blind devotion to a point...

“He's crazy. You know he's crazy,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  “He's crazy and what he did yesterday [Jan. 6] is further evidence of his craziness,” Her words were reportedly transcribed from a phone call between her and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs (JC) of Staff General Mark Milley....

If there are epitaphs for the US involvement in Afghanistan, it will resemble the problem of a modern military against a historically unconquerable country built on tribal differences. The winner will be Pakistan and the loser the people of Afghanistan. In a remarkable and previously unreported incident in early December, top...

Disgraced former president Trump is well-known for his intense dislike — and fear — of powerful women, from Speaker Pelosi to the Squad to any woman journalist who questions him. So it comes as no surprise to see this story in today’s New York Times: Promotions for Female Generals Were...

It’s common courtesy, not to mention common sense, to ask someone’s permission before using them in an advertisement. The Trump campaign has no interest in courtesy, sense, or for that matter the law. They put out an ad which took Dr. Fauci totally out of context to make it appear...

So many hoaxes, so much evidence. Money transfers, middle-men. The issue is less about the bounty since it likely is SOP, but more that Trump has denied it. One expects that reciprocity will happen, but even SecDef Esper admitting knowing the existence of the reports is troubling, despite the (usual) Trumpian...
