I’ve remained silent on the controversy surrounding Supreme Court Justice nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, thus far. Rather than a cut-and-dried confirmation process, Kavanaugh finds himself the subject of weaponized, #MeToo-styled accusations. For those who haven’t been keeping up, Brett Kavanaugh was on his way to an easy confirmation process, when Senator Dianne Feinstein decided to make a grandstand play, revealing a letter she’d allegedly been sitting on since July. The letter was from a California college professor by the name of… Read more

I don’t know if I’m supposed to feel bad for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, or not. I mean, let’s be honest about this thing: He jumped on the Trump train early, even after seeing Trump’s abusive, petty behavior towards his fellow candidates for the GOP nomination, and a host of laughably bad debate performances. And no, if you went to a Drudge or Breitbart online poll and voted multiple times for Trump, even before the debate was finished, that doesn’t… Read more

So we talked about President Trump and his terrible tariff plan to weaken our economy. For those that missed it, President Best Brain is lobbing a fresh shot across the bow of China, with over $200 billion in new tariffs. China is retaliating. It will not go well for American businesses or consumers. Smarter people have attempted to explain to Trump the destructive nature of his protectionist policies, regarding trade. None of them have been able to penetrate the MAGA… Read more

The weekend news, as well as the beginning of the week’s news cycle has been inundated with coverage of the damage in the Carolinas, caused by Hurricane Florence. Believe me, I understand the impact, all too well. My weekend pursuits were stunted by the storm. As she moved into North Carolina, she shut power down for the majority of my city. Now, after three hot, sticky days, and with the hurricane snack stash depleted, I emerge from the dark days… Read more

One by one, the guilty pleas are coming. One by one, former associates or Trump campaign team members are rolling over in some fashion, willing to make a deal, in order to save their own skin. Overall, it appears that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has been moving along successfully. There have been no major leaks and no matter how President Trump rages and threatens, he’s not shaking Mueller. Today’s news concerns former Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. Manafort has… Read more

I am a defender of the press, believing that as imperfect and yes – even biased as the media can be, we do not label them “the enemy,” in order to protect some would-be despot, and we don’t put a gag on them. That being said, what The New York Times has attempted to do to United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley is inexcusable. For some reason – and this got past the editors of the news organization – they ran… Read more

Fox News personality, Tucker Carlson, has been on a fast track to complete and total joke for some time, now. Carlson’s sole purpose now seems to be wrapped up in his transmogrification into a dumber, more annoying version of Sean Hannity. It shouldn’t be a competition, ladies, but… WOW. I thought last week’s Tucker Carlson segment, asking what was so great about diversity was peak for him. And you know, there are few things I find as annoying as labeling… Read more

Are you rich? Might I suggest that when you’re wealthy or a celebrity, you shouldn’t use that as a golden ticket to commit sexual assault, but rather, you should find more altruistic pursuits? With that in mind, I’m going to express my admiration for Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, once more. And yes, I know he’s a pretty liberal guy, in general. What if I told you that one’s political leanings do not negate their worth as a person, or the… Read more

He is a petulant, self-absorbed, awful human being. The stain of Trumpism will not wash off of those who have enabled him. It will not be easily forgotten. Today’s fresh Trump outrage is particularly notable, as I, and other east coast Americans brace for Hurricane Florence to inflict her fury upon us. I am sitting in the North Carolina “red zone” of the projected path of Florence. I have taken precautions, stockpiling ice, water, nonperishable food, and other necessities, in… Read more

Donald Trump – profaner, adulterer, abuser, con artist, potential tax cheat – and celebrated champion of the American evangelicals. I’ve watched with heartbreak, as respected members of the American church body have laid their offerings of praise at this man’s feet. I’ve lamented a church that puts politics over their faith because, as I’ve been told so many times, they felt they had no other options. In other words, adhering to their faith was not an option. They were forced… Read more
