It’s Time to Cry Foul!

  Why is everything so quiet? Why aren’t alarms going off, police sirens wailing and crowds thronging the streets? Am I the only one who heard Bill Nelson say our voting machinery has been compromised? Now that Russian invaders have broken into Florida’s voting records, the state’s midterm election results might as well be tossed […]

Shades of Al Capone?

  As I follow the intricate web of evidence emerging in the Mueller probe, echoes of the case that finally put Al Capone (photo) behind bars reverberate in my mind. No, I don’t really think Trump is a latter-day Scarface. He isn’t that deadly. But I feel in my bones that the president of the […]

The Question Before Us

  So Trump has left no doubt about his loyalty to Putin and his disloyalty to America. Some are calling it treason. And Americans are left facing the most vital question of our time: What do we do now? What should we do? What can we do? What must we do? We must do something. […]

The Case for Impeachment

    Some readers of this blog argue that my accusations against Trump are without factual support. They demand details. First, the case for  his impeachment: Obstruction of justice Violations of the Foreign Emoluments Clause and Domestic Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution; Conspiring with others to:commit crimes against the United States and attempting to […]

Trump’s White Tide

  Sandra and I watched part of Trump’s rambling, self-aggrandizing rant on CNN Saturday night, and I was disheartened by the sea of white faces behind him. These people didn’t care what he said, they believed it. They loved it. They loved him. They  would vote for him again in a heartbeat. Is this America […]

Making up the “News”

Trump and his minions constantly complain about “fake news” produced by left-leaning media. And the mainstream media are not completely blamesless. Political reporting has always been suspect. This type of journalism seems to rely on more lenient standards than “hard news” reporting. The practice of using unnamed sources, for example, is prevalent in political reports. […]

Keeping us in Suspense

  Drop by tiny drop the “leaks” keep coming but why aren’t we hearing some official news from all of those investigations into Russia’s hacking? I would think the facts are easy to uncover. It’s common knowledge that Putin’s hackers stole information from the Democratic Party’s computers and released the damaging stuff they found. And everyone […]

Making up the News

One of the far right’s favorite ploys is accusing political opponents of dirty deeds they have done or are planning to do. The “fake news” meme is an example. I’m sure you agree that there’s fake news in circulation. But you also have to agree it’s coming overwhelmingly  from the right. And it’s not just the crazy web […]

Are You a Racial Profiler?

  I confess, when I read that some guy named Anthony Scaramucci was suspected of shady business with the Russians, I thought the worst. Yes, I am a racial profiler. I wonder whether the same instinct might have betrayed those three journalists who had to resign from CNN after producing a flawed story about the Trump transition advisor (with […]

Trump’s Diversionary Attack

My guess is that Trump bombed that Syrian airbase to divert attention from the growing evidence that he is Putin’s pawn. I wouldn’t be surprised if Putin knew about the attack beforehand. Syria is not a priority as far as Putin is concerned. So he probably gave his old pal Trump permission to bomb the Syrian […]
