The Hammer & Nail

Trump is rapidly purging his administration of key State and Justice department employees. Not born from a desire to improve the skill and overall efficiency of the departments.

The Real Hoax

President Trump, speaking before an enthusiastic crowd in South Carolina, called the Democrat's response to the Coronavirus the "new hoax." First, that there are still "enthusiastic" supporters for a man who has uttered over 16,000 lies in three and a half years is depressing, to say the least. I'm not ... Read More

Quarantining Hate

The Coronavirus poses a threat to a significant number of Americans. That said, the vast majority of us will be fine; it's not the apocalypse. The real danger isn't the virus, it's the ideological calculus of Republicans. Trump and his ever-shrinking circle of sycophants and carpetbaggers are laying their hopes ... Read More

Trump & Women (cont)

In Trump's world, there's nothing worse than a woman with an opinion. To that point, Trump has called on Justices Ginsberg and Sotomayor to recuse themselves from any case that might involve the recently impeached President.

James Carville is but one of many politicos predicting disaster should Bernie Sanders receive the Democratic nomination. There are no real numbers yet to back up that up, but the feeling is that your average voter sees Bernie, a self described socialist, as way too left. But the truth is, ... Read More

The Democratic Electoral College

Trump scoffed at the assessment of U.S. intelligence officials that Russia is back at work, attempting to influence our election. He called it a “misinformation campaign” by Democrats. He's wrong for two reasons. One, there is a preponderance of evidence; IP addresses, sources, and frankly, the Russians don't care if ... Read More

Barr: Some Things Never Change

Attorney General Bill Barr isn't going anywhere. The recent spate of protests regarding Trump's tweets, directed at DOJ prosecutors, brought forth a series of whimpers and whines, supposedly from Barr, threatening to resign should Trump continue being Trump. It's all a lie. Barr's ploy might be to assert a speckle ... Read More

A Human Stain

Aubrey Huff is a former major-leaguer who could hit a baseball. Unfortunately, his talent ended there. A World Series veteran for the San Francisco Giants, Huff took to Twitter like a turd to a bowl. He has consistently tweeted homophobic, misogynistic, and even violent threats to Americans on the back ... Read More

A Bucket Of Water

Michael Bloomberg has qualified for the debates. That's good for the Democrats. Even Bernie. Sanders needs to reign in his bros and bras and remember what got him here. Two weeks before Super Tuesday, where more than two thirds of the delegates necessary to win the nomination will be up ... Read More
