The parties are not the same

The parties are not the same

Do American liberals ever pay attention to the corruption in the Democratic Party at all? If so, why do they insist that the Republican Party is worse? Quora Question: Answered by: Randy Weir: Author, journalist, minister Lifelong conservative and former Republican here. Let’s run through this. Reagan should have been impeached over Iran-Contra, but Oliver North perjured himself to protect him, and became a Republican hero for doing so. Bill Clinton lied about an affair and was impeached. ... Full Story

The GOP is Jonestown

The GOP is Jonestown

COVID-19 has killed over 950,000 of us here in the U. S. where we have vaccines, Because there is a loud, moronic minority called the GOP, the evil Republican Party. Those rich, racist, White Supremacist pigs lie about vaccines while they smoke cigars. The GOP is anti-vax, but pro-tobacco? Orange Jim Jones hides out in Mar-a-Lago, hiding from cameras because he’s a lardo. Kool-Aid drinking is the new Olympic sport Republicans will win, unlike when in court. At least the dominoes are lined ... Full Story

How bad would it have to get in Ukraine for Trump to

How bad would it have to get in Ukraine for Trump to abandon Putin?

By Mike Littwin   Once again, democracy is under attack. And while I could be talking about Russia’s still-shocking, full-scale invasion of Ukraine and its fledgling democracy, I’m actually talking about the ugly rantings of Vladimir Putin’s poodle, Donald Trump. In the wake of the Russian attack, as I’m sure you know, Trump celebrated Putin’s “genius,” his “savvy” and added a few other words of praise that the Former Guy usually reserves for himself. In his speech to ... Full Story

Trump Election Probe Advances

Trump Election Probe Advances

    By Janell Ross Fani Willis, the District Attorney of Fulton County, Ga., began investigating the possibility of criminal interference in Georgia’s November 2020 election in early February last year, several weeks after a recorded phone call during which former President Trump asked Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” over 11,000 votes. (Repeated tallies, recounts and audits have shown that now President Joe Biden beat Trump by about 12,000 votes in ... Full Story

The Failure that is Donald J Trump

The Failure that is Donald J Trump

    Dear Editor, We live in unprecedented times. Between a global pandemic and an unprecedented un-presidenting, the US is in the world spotlight. While we lead the world in infections and deaths, we also lead the world in presidential self-denial.  Trump has refused to concede the election to President-elect Biden. I hope I’m not the only one that sees the irony of the Electoral College votes being the same as 2016, in reverse. Pop quiz: When is a landslide not a landslide? When ... Full Story

Trump botched all this

Trump botched all this

by Tom H. Hastings OK, I have seen, in my life, Eisenhower and Kennedy and Johnson and Nixon botch Vietnam. I have seen Reagan botch the Euromissile crisis alongside the AIDS outbreak. I watched George Bush the Younger and Dick Cheney utterly botch Iraq. But in my lifetime I have never witnessed any US president botch anything so disastrous as Trump has botched the response to covid 19. I didn’t know so many mistakes were even possible and he just won’t stop. His coronavirus denial was ... Full Story

Putin forever!

Putin forever!

by Mel Gurtov One trait dictators have in common: They believe in ruling for life. And since they’re dictators, they can count on supporters to echo their ambition and push for laws to ensure eternal control. We’re seeing this scenario play out in Hungary under Viktor Orban, China under Xi Jinping, Turkey under Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and Russia under Vladimir Putin. (Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu is a wannabe lifer; his case is pending.)  All these men have seized on COVID-19 as an ... Full Story

Serve With Honor, Honor Those Who Serve; Or Support

Serve With Honor, Honor Those Who Serve; Or Support Trump?

by Wim Laven Starting as Armistice Day, celebrated for the first time November 11, 1919--the first anniversary of the end of World War I in 1918—what we now call Veterans Day is the observance of thanks to those who have served military duty. It acknowledges the living and the dead for honorably representing the country during peacetime and war. This year it is imperative that people understand that honor and the name Donald Trump cannot fit in the same sentence. His dishonor to the ... Full Story

At Risk—the Idea of America

At Risk—the Idea of America

by Mel Gurtov Perhaps the most damaging legacy of the Trump years is the disservice he and his associates are doing to Americans’ sense of self and nation. In ordinary times there would not be much debate about what it means to be an American or what are American values. Every school child learns these things: It’s Civics 1. Race, class, and gender identity have always been important, but generally they have been subsumed under a larger identification with the nation. “We’re ... Full Story

Some Dare Call It Treason

  by Mel Gurtov Is Donald Trump not merely gullible, uninformed, and indifferent but actually treasonous when it comes to Russia? More and more high-profile people are saying so. He’s acting like “a Russian mole,” in the words of conservative columnist Max Boot. “America is under attack and its president absolutely refuses to defend it. Simply put, Trump is a traitor and may well be treasonous,” argues New York Times op-ed writer Charles M. Blow. The former CIA ... Full Story
