Election 2016

Don’t Be Distracted By Bannon’s Firing

The news that Steve Bannon has been fired by Donald Trump is being heralded by pundits and the media as a major turning point for a White House that has been in a constant state of chaos since January 20. Bannon’s alt-right influence, we’re told, was a cancer on the presidency and was undermining what

It’s Time for Bob Mueller To Subpoena Trump’s Tax Returns

Thanks to the revelation that Mini Me – AKA Donald Trump Jr. – met with a Russian official for the expressed purpose of collecting damaging information on Hillary Clinton in order to help his father win the 2016 election, we now have clear evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. This isn’t a

Orange Privileges, Immunities & Atrocities

Poised as we are just before a hallowed holiday weekend, and in further honor of the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars as well as our nation’s foremost motor-car race, reporting on the Trump-fueled daily disasters is just “coming in too fast.” The clown-car demolition derby leading up to his first ill-fated big-boy trip, the emblematic

Worse, it doesn’t seem to have a plan with how to deal with the incoming administration. This denial isn’t just limited to Democrats.

Hey Dems, The Pity Party Ends Now

My dentist has this plaque on his wall that reads, “Ignore Your Teeth And They’ll Go Away.” It’s funny, but true. As a salesman, I’ve often employed that very simple logic to my own profession. I know very well, as every salesperson knows, that if I’m not calling my customers, my competition is. Politics isn’t

Why Usurping the Electoral College Results is Dangerous

Look, anyone with half a brain knows that Donald Trump is an embarrassment to this country, and his upcoming administration poses a grave threat to American democracy. Know what else poses a grave threat to American democracy? Two hair-brained schemes: one being concocted by a couple of Republican electors; the other involving a petition being
