In 1690 Benjamin Harris published the first American newspaper. Four days later his paper was shut down by the government. Granted this was during a time when America wasn’t America but a colony of then motherland England. Before the age of “FAKE NEWS!” we had the following, "I thank God, there are no free schools … Continue reading Someone Change The King’s Diaper
I went to the Starbucks near my office today to buy a copy of the “failing” New York Times –as President Trump would call it. “Pleading Guilty, Cohen Implicates President” reads the front page of the 166 year old newspaper. If this leading headline is jarring on its own then Trump’s personal lawyer saying in … Continue reading Cohen Has A Gun And It’s Pointed At Trump
I’ve always hated reality television -just ask my wife. Never in a million years would I have thought that a reality TV star would be the president of the United States. Obviously it’s not just something left to the imagination, it’s now reality. What I loathe most of all is that it’s not just the … Continue reading Omarosa: Trump is a Racist, World: Duh.
It Can’t Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis predicted a Donald Trump before Donald Trump was even born. In 1935 Lewis explored the rise of fascism in America. The book he wrote dripped with satire and mocked events that, well, captured what Trumpism was, before Trumpism was even and ism. Berzelius “Buzz” Windrip comes to power … Continue reading The Forgotten American, Still Forgotten
America is losing the trade war, and President Trump is the reason for it -he dragged us into this mess. No matter how much perfume you put on this, it stinks. I’ll make it easy for you. China bought 60% of our soybeans last year -we sold them $12.3 billion worth. Trump implemented a 25% … Continue reading Trump Is Losing The War, Farmers Are The Casualty
On July 16th President Trump met with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki Finland, said he didn’t see how Russians would have interfered in our presidential election, the next day attempted to correct it by saying he misspoke, and then tripped again by saying that Russians aren’t targeting our midterm elections. Oh one more thing, Putin is … Continue reading When America Sends It’s People, They’re Not Sending Their Best… SO VOTE!
President Trump doesn’t know how to win -or at least walk away with a W. Back in March of this year Bloomberg reported that NATO had increased spending and you can argue that it’s because Trump has pushed for this from the get go -even though it happened on President Obama’s watch. It wasn’t enough … Continue reading Reminder: Russia Is Not Our Friend, The FBI Is Not Our Enemy
Watching Donald Trump Jr. open for his dad the day after Independence Day in Montana made me realize that being a grifter must be genetic. The shtick of giving nicknames to the opposition, calling the media fake news, complimenting members of congress attending the rally who shouldn’t be in congress, and culminating with giving sycophantic … Continue reading Another Shitty Donald Trump Concert
A friend of mine asked me what I thought about the calls for civility in our modern day politics. And while I’d say that I should be swayed by “the better angels of our nature”, I’m not stupid nor do I have a short memory. Maxine Waters is being asked to apologize for her critical … Continue reading Civility? You First Trump.
In 1939 the German transatlantic liner St. Louis carried 937 passengers who were fleeing the Nazi machine. They left because they feared an almost certain death at the hands of Hitler and sought out a more peaceful and tolerant place –The United States. Their ship made it to Cuba. When they got there they only … Continue reading Our Immorality Is Showing
