Trump Gagged


Analysts concerned Trump may spontaneously combust into ash The New York attorney general wants to bar Trump from doing business in the state. Last week, the judge overseeing his Trump Organization fraud case ruled that Trump and his co-defendants committed “persistent and repeated” fraud. It was the first of seven claims the attorney general is trying to prove, collectively for which Trump and...

Playtime’s Over…


Trump arraigned on election charges Mr. Trump was booked and fingerprinted before entering the courtroom this week and offering a soft-spoken “not guilty” to each of the four counts lodged against him on Tuesday by the special counsel. In addition to the election case, he faces federal charges of mishandling classified documents and accusations in New York related to hush money payments to a porn...

It’s Official: Trump Grabbed ‘er by the Pussy


The results are in & Trump is a rapist Donald has been claiming that because a jury in May found him guilty of sexual abuse, it meant he was not found guilty of rape. His legal team is drawing a distinction between the two as though they belong to separate categories and committing one precludes the other. In actuality, rape is but one subset of the broader term “sexual abuse.”...

New York Puts The Heavy on Trump


Hit with a new lawsuit like a ton of bricks My story also on Medium New York attorney general Lititia James has filed charges against Donald Trump and 3 of his children accusing them of fraud. In addition to $250 million in damages, New York seeks to bar the Trumps from ever again serving as executives on any company registered or licensed in New York. [Washington Post] The 222-page civil...

Skeletons in Golden Closets


Trump’s residence and office at Mar-a-Lago was raided by the F.B.I. today in an audacious move by a Justice Department which has taken criticism in the past for pulling punches. The search focused on material that Mr. Trump had brought with him to Mar-a-Lago when he left the White House, which allegedly contained many classified documents. They also cracked open one of Trump’s...

Ghosts of Insurrection Past


The United States is finally reigning in the masterminds behind the January 6th terrorist attack on The Capitol. I always make sure to use that language because we shouldn’t forget to call it what it was. Had they had things their way, a full-on, fascistly enforced coup would have taken place and the orderly transfer of power would have been interrupted and, in fact, end entirely with...



Two decades and countless lives lost to a war which went no where. The United States evacuation of Afghanistan ended with a whimper instead of a roar. Like Iraq, Viet Nam, and arguably Korea, we continue to thrust ourselves across different parts of the world stage only to demonstrate how misguided, ineffective and impotent our original vision really was.

“The Art of (Breaking) The Deal”

Instead of putting deals together, Trump finds it much easier to break them apart One thing has certainly become clear since Donald J. Trump assumed the office of the presidency: the man’s word means nothing. He’s already broken many of his own, personal campaign promises and in-office commitments, but it’s other peoples deals he enjoys blowing up the most. I mean, let’s be honest: if all you...

State Run Propaganda


Trump suggests U.S. launch it’s own TV network Gee, I wonder whether the White House would have a compelling amount of control over the new network he suggests creating. Perhaps he finally sees he may not win reelection in 2020 between his low popularity, the loss of the House and over 400 State legislature seats, and the unfavorable trajectory of the Mueller investigation. Perhaps he’s getting...

“Truth isn’t truth”


“1984″ is alive and well in 2018 In an unprecedented new era of falsehoods, hypocracy, and downright propaganda, it really requires something shocking to stand out amongst the noise and knock one back a step. Yesterday was one of those moments. Wow. Let’s back up a second, though, and look at a few of the other data points along the way that have led us to where we’re at today...
