Self-Proclaimed Protectors of America Hold Everything it Stands for in Contempt.

Share

One of the great ironies in this nation is that the people who claim to love it the most are the same people with the most contempt for it.

Puerto Rico Crisis the Result of Years of Conservatism. Coming soon to a state near you.

Share

Conservative policies of the last 40+ years has utterly devastated Puerto Rico. So then, for Donald Trump to then attack them for their poverty in the middle of a humanitarian crisis only highlights the destructive incompetence of Republican policies.

With Arpaio Pardon, Trump drops pretense he’s not a racist

Share

Trump is no longer making any pretense of not being a racist. With nothing left to lose except his racist base, Trump has now embraced the label with his pardoning of the most racist sheriff in America, Joe Arpaio.

#TeleprompterTrump vs #UnscriptedTrump

Share

It occurred to me yesterday listening to both Trump defenders and Trump critics that there are in fact two Donald Trump’s: #TeleprompterTrump & #UnscriptedTrump. Trump’s friends/defenders… like Jerry Falwell Jr on “Meet the Press” yesterday… only see “#TeleprompterTrump”… the Trump that has his comments carefully written out for him by a professional speech-writer that tends to say the […]

The Subtle “Implied Racism” of Trump’s Presidency

Share

Donald Trump’s entire rise to the presidency has been bore on the backs of racism. His remarks following the Charlottesville murders is but the latest example of a history of reluctance to condemn racism.

Tell me how More Guns would have prevented crossfire shooting death of Wade’s cousin?

Share

Over the weekend, Donald Trump was rightly excoriated for politicizing the death of Nykea Aldridge, cousin of Chicago Bulls superstar Dwyane Wade, after tweeting (natch) that such incidents would win him the African-American vote. Now, Trump rightly deserves condemnation for politicizing Aldridge’s death (and no, I’m not doing the same. I’m attributing no benefit/harm from this […]

Dallas and The Slippery Slope of Allowing Police to Play Executioner

Share

Last week was another tragic week following the deaths of two black men at the hands of police under dubious circumstances and five police officers in Dallas by a disturbed black man using a #BlackLivesMatter protest as cover. But just as disturbing was the method used to “stop” the Dallas shooter… not “capture”, “arrest” or “subdue”, […]

GOP’s Slide Toward Fascism Has Become Impossible To Ignore

Share

When Donald Trump’s call to bar Muslim’s entry into the U.S. received widespread condemnation, his GOP competitors whom have failed to gain any traction against him jumped on the Condemnation Bandwagon. But everyone seems to forget what spurred Trump’s first foray into politics: questioning the birthplace of the nation’s first African American president and suggesting he was a “secret Muslim”.

Home of the Brave? Govs & Congress Terrified of Refugees. GOP Front-runners Channel… you know who.

Share

Following the Paris attacks, if anyone had just cause to fear strangers from a war zone entering their country, it was the French. Instead, they said to the world, “We will not be intimidated!” and recommitted themselves to accepting 30 Thousand additional Syrian Refugees (which, as I pointed out last week, is a very smart move.)
