President Trump is running the Republican mid-term campaign, and he has turned it into a campaign of hate and fear.  In his desire to hold onto both houses of Congress for the Republicans, he has whistled every racist dog whistle known.  He’s run ads describing illegal immigrants as murderers, he’s announced that American troops will fire on un-armed civilians at our border and he’s even come out with the racist cant that he wants to “protect” American women from the… Read more

No news today. I have doctor visits. This is Psalm 53 sung for Pope Francis in Aramaic, which was Jesus’ native tongue. It is haunting, beautiful. The fools says in his heart “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no one who does good. 2 God looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. 3 Everyone has turned away, all have become… Read more

I may not write specifically about the latest mass shooting. I’ve been dealing with the tragic death of a close family friend, a young person who should have had their life ahead of them, and that makes this terrible tragedy too painful.  I am so sorry for the lives that were taken Saturday. It echoes the shooting in a black church a few months ago. Like them, these people were gathered in their house of worship, and they were shot… Read more

The sure-fire way to win an election is to stop people who want to vote against you from voting.  Kick them off the voter rolls. Throw their ballots in the trash. Change the voting rules just before the election. You can change the vote totals by thousands of votes with these tactics.  The tactic of “voter suppression,” which is the fine art of making it as difficult as possible for the “wrong” people, which is to say people who might vote… Read more

The FBI came through, and it didn’t take them long to do it. They have arrested a suspect in connection with the mail bombs that were sent to President Trump’s critics in the past week. The suspect has been identified as Cesar Sayoc, a 56-year-old Florida resident. President Trump followed the arrest with a presidential-sounding statement, calling for national unity and applauding our quick-acting law enforcement. Earlier in the day, he had been referring to the “bomb stuff” as a… Read more
