Impeach – Then Indict

  The game’s up. Trump has been implicated in two felonies. There’s a clear case for impeachment. Everybody knows – or should know- that Trump is a money launderer with a murky past. So impeachment should just be the first step. Once out of office, he should be indicted. Yes, he is innocent until proven […]

Buying a Bigger Club

  As Russia infiltrates our online infrastructure and as China quietly buys up the Third World, America seeks to achieve invulnerability by creating a massive military force. That’s like a cave man shaping a bigger club to protect himself from nerve gas. These are complicated times, and a military budget nearing a trillion dollars won’t […]

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 […]

Who is the Real Enemy?

    When White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refuses to walk back Trump’s rant that the press is “the enemy of the people,” warning bells should be ringing across the land. Thomas Jefferson observed that: When the speech condemns a free press, you are hearing the words of a a tyrant. Attacking the independent media […]

Fascism Next Door

  The hate filled attack on “the media” by my Tampa Bay neighbors yesterday leaves me stunned and dismayed. I cringed as I watched a video of the pro-Trump crowd heckling CNN’s Jim Acosta. Faces I might encounter in Publix, as we exchange polite smiles and “excuse me’s,” are contorted in rage. Folks who might […]

A Day in the Age of Trump

    No interruption so far in access to the blog site, so I’ll keep blogging until I hear something more from Xavier… It’s another day in Trumpistan… The Trump faithful may be taking comfort from Rudy Giuliani’s  rambling interview on TV yesterday, but the rest of us are left wondering what that was all […]

Strong Man Never Wrong?

  Growing up in Jamaica, I often heard the saying, “Strong man never wrong.” It was a reflection of the society of the times. Jamaica was a colony in which white colonists and British civil servants called the shots. The black majority had no say. They were expected to do as they were told, treat […]

Oh, Those Scary Labels!

  Democratic Party bigwigs are reportedly cowering in fear because the base is turning to “Democratic Socialism.” I wish those old fossils would (as one of my readers might put it) get a grip. Yes, the Socialist label has been demonized in America. And. yes, some brands of Socialism have failed spectacularly all over the […]

Serving the Afflicted

  If those kidnapped refugee children are ever reunited with their parents, it won’t be because of Ice Queen Kirstjen Nielsen (photo) or heartless apparatchik Alex Azar . It will be groups like Catholic Charities we have to thank. These privately funded groups – and an army of volunteers – are working day and night behind […]
