2018 midterms

Trumpcare by EO

President Donald Trump plans to end a key set of Obamacare subsidies that helped lower-income enrollees pay for health care, the White House said Thursday, a dramatic move that raises questions about the law’s future. – CNN LOOK: This is an act of purest spite. Nothing more. Be clear on this: This emphatically racist waste of

The Art of the Steal

It’s a good thing Donald Trump doesn’t play poker or he would’ve had five bankruptcies instead of four. Or is that seven bankruptcies instead of six? I lose track sometimes. At any rate, that hideous tower in midtown Manhattan that bares his name would would have Chuck Schumer’s name on it instead. That’s because Chuck

Chuck Schumer Finally Gets the Memo

“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.” – Chuck Schumer I’ll be honest, I’ve given Schumer a lot

Why Democrats Lose Elections

Retired University of California at Berkeley professor George Lakoff has a theory about why Democrats lose elections and it comes down to messaging. Actually, it’s more than just a theory; turns out Lakoff was one of the few people who predicted Donald Trump would win the 2016 election. Note, he didn’t just say Trump could win, he

Enough Already!

Trumpcare Isn’t Dead Just Yet

Being the skeptic that I am, though, I’m not convinced that this thing is

Call It A Night, Hillary

There’s this scene from the seminal movie A Night To Remember where Kenneth More’s character, Second Officer Charles Lightoller, is having a discussion with a passenger in one of the Titanic’s lifeboats as the rescue ship Carpathia arrives on the scene to pick up the survivors, and it goes like this: Passenger: “Would that be

Now It’s Mueller’s Investigation

The announcement by Rod Rosenstein that he has appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to take over the Russia investigation is encouraging, and for two reasons: First, it’s a ray of hope for millions of Americans who were rightly concerned that the wheels were coming off this democracy. Two, it’s a thorough rebuke to this

What Schumer and the Dems Need To Do Regarding Comey’s Replacement

It’s nice that Chuck Schumer is drawing his own red line by demanding that any new FBI director not be a “partisan politician” from “either party,” and that voting on James Comey’s replacement might be contingent upon the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Donald Trump and his administration. Unfortunately for Schumer, Democrats only
