Trump’s Kremlin Crew

A guest post by Frank Zindler. A MADMAN COMES TO POWER PART 4: TRUMP’S KREMLIN CREW  Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence.Three times is enemy action.—Ian Fleming In Part 3 of this series of blog postings I presented strong evidence implicating not only Donald Trump’s participation in a pro-Putin conspiracy, but also the high likelihood that his National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn was involved as well. According to Ian Fleming, this could just be a coincid … [Read more...]

A Madman Comes to Power (Part 3)

A guest post by Frank Zindler.During the Republican primaries and the general election campaign of 2016, Donald Trump’s outré behavior and comments caused many careful observers and analysts to notice that there was something particularly unusual in his public statements concerning Russia and its strongman Vladimir Putin. Trump never had anything but praise for Putin, and Putin was reciprocating in a very flattering way. Then it became apparent that Trump’s bucket list of “things to do” was i … [Read more...]

A Madman Comes to Power (Part 2)

A guest post by Frank Zindler.   As always, this blog's posters are speaking only for themselves and not for any organization for which they may be affiliated. I have asserted that president-elect Donald J. Trump is certifiably insane. More specifically, I have argued that he suffers from a mental illness known as “Narcissistic Personality Disorder,” and that this not only makes him unfit to be president of the United States of America, it makes him a threat to the very existence of our const … [Read more...]

A Madman Comes to Power

A Madman Comes to Power:  A guest post by Frank Zindler.It is the greatest Constitutional crisis our nation has faced since the Civil War. A madman is soon to enter the Oval Office. His mission is not to assassinate a sitting president; it is much more serious than that. His mission is that of the madman who burnt the Reichstag and swept away the trappings of democracy — paving the way for a frighteningly different type of government to come to power. Although our new government will have th … [Read more...]

The King of America and the Killing of Hope

I, like half our country, am terrified of what happens next. I’m already grieving for the troops that will be dying overseas a couple of years from now and for the millions of people we are going to kill and displace. I’m grieving for our citizens who will die within our borders, both because our “enemies” have the ability and the motivation to bring the fighting to our soil and because so many millions will lose their medical insurance. I’m grieving for the environment, the climate, and the econ … [Read more...]

Trump’s Presidential Fantasies

Author’s Note: As always, I am speaking for myself and not for American Atheists or any other organization of which I am a present or past member.Somehow, I ended up on a mailing list from the Trump campaign. Either they bought my email address from some data aggregator or someone signed me up as a prank but either way, these emails have been both illuminating and distressing.The latest one I received outlines what Trump says he will do in the early weeks of his presidency: “Here’s what … [Read more...]

The Wonders of a Woman Card

According to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton apparently possesses a superpower called "the woman card" that gives her access to political advantages allegedly denied to the male presidential candidates. It is his contention that without this superpower, she would not otherwise be a viable presidential candidate.I can only assume deployment of the "women card" is a superpower available to all women, but what exactly is the nature of this superpower?  Does it keep women from being sexually … [Read more...]

Wisconsin or Bust(ed)

Tentative Conclusions (as of April) on the 2016 US Presidential RaceBy Ed BucknerMy take (and only mine: I emphatically disown any notion that I can or do speak here for any organization, any other atheists, any other Democrats, any other Georgians, any other extremely good-looking guys, etc.) on the 2016 presidential election, as of 5 April 2016 (but before the Wisconsin primary results were known):I think Bernie Sanders is slightly imperfect as a potential Democratic candidate or … [Read more...]

Trump’s Twitter account goes fully misogynistic (to the surprise of no one).

If you aren’t appalled by the misogynistic Twitter war between Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, you either aren’t paying attention or you agree with Trump’s apparent position that a woman’s value is exclusively in her looks. He’s pretty much said it throughout his freak show campaign and now he has visually endorsed it.I will not link to the Trump retweet that sparked this missive but the gist of it is that someone posted an unflattering picture of Cruz’s wife Hei … [Read more...]
