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

Hacking of Minds

The Russian hacking of our Presidential election is no longer in doubt. However, there are some misunderstandings about it. Some on social media clearly think it was our ballot boxes that were hacked. It wasn’t our ballot boxes that were hacked; it was the minds of the electorate. Why were we so gullible? James Clapper

Trump Is Playing Chicken With the Wrong Psychopath

It’s one thing to bomb Syria. The only consequence, apart from spending $59 million to launch 50 Tomahawk missiles, is pissing off Putin. And if you’re a skeptic like me, you probably aren’t buying the “Russian / U.S. tensions are at their highest level in years” bullshit to begin with. If you’ve ever watched the

Dems Should Tell Mike Flynn To Take A Hike

So the man who said that anybody seeking immunity has probably committed a crime is now asking for immunity to testify before Congress. Now that’s what I call irony. Kudos to the Senate Intelligence Committee for rejecting the offer. It’s obvious that Mike Flynn knows his goose is cooked. Why on Earth would he be

America on the Precipice

“Yesterday I felt truly embarrassed. The ‘leader of the free world’ just sat there, awkwardly, waiting for Trump to shake her hand.” – George Takei George wasn’t the only one embarrassed. To tell you the truth, I was flabbergasted. I’ve never seen anything like this in my lifetime, not even from Nixon. And believe you

Rolling-Orange-Privilege

OPERATION ROLLING ORANGE PRIVILEGE: DOWNHILL, BACKWARDS, ON SKATES Picking up plus-or-minus where we left Orange Privilege a fort-night ago, the Trump administration continues with all the focus and purpose of a beach ball at a Phish concert. Excepting that such a beach ball would be inflated with good will and kept aloft by nice people.

What Are Your Non-Negotiables?

I was wrong. I thought we were in agreement on the Big Things, and the fights and debates were about details, the how-do-you-get-there stuff. I thought we were on the same page about what America IS and what America is FOR. I was wrong. I was wrong—and I think that’s why this election has been

Just Last Week in Orange Privilege: Bull, Bullies, and Beat-downs

Winding up their third hapless week, the Trump Administration did not disappoint onlookers, crashing and careening through statecraft, free enterprise and the constitution before skidding to a steaming rest in front of Nordstrom’s. Trump’s greatest gift to make us all great again is to repeatedly demonstrate that no amount of reckless speed and utter bullshit

This Isn’t Funny Anymore

Did you get a chance to watch Melissa McCarthy’s brilliant takedown of Sean Spicer on SNL? I missed it, but I watched it on You Tube. And did you also get the chance to watch Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump making insulting phone calls in the Oval Office to various heads of state while a

What is Paul Manafort?

I’m not a conspiracy theorist but some things are too hard to ignore as mere coincidence. We know Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, worked for Pro-Russian, former Ukrainian President Yanukovych from 2007-2014 until Yanukovych was overthrown by the Ukrainian people. However, Manafort kept an office in Kiev to advise Yanukovych’s party about how to get
