Remember those heady days of Trump impeachments past, when Maine Senator Susan Collins voted to acquit the president, stating he’d “learned a lesson”?   Good times.   Maybe somebody should get Senator Collins on record – STAT! It would appear Trump needs a refresher course.   To recap, Donald Trump was impeached on December 18, 2019 for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. He becomes one of only three presidents in our nation’s history to enjoy that ignoble distinction,... Read more

Who are the enemies within? The most technical definition, as laid out in 18 U.S. Code § 2385, walks us through any attempts to overthrow our government. Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of... Read more

“In time, you will know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right. Yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.” – Thanos, from the Marvel movie, “Avengers: Infinity War” Given the political quagmire our nation finds herself embroiled in, at this time, that particular quote seems fitting. The Trump campaign has fought a losing battle, in their efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Over 50 lawsuits... Read more

So the election is done, but it looks like it is far from over. Actually, I’ve been having a bit of schadenfreude fun with the Trump-faithful. The “I WANT A RECOUNT! Why? So you can re-lose?” meme has become an instant favorite. None of that means I’m thrilled with the looming reality of a Biden/Harris administration. I didn’t vote for that ticket. I voted for Jo Jorgensen, in hopes of strengthening the prospects of a third party in 2024. For... Read more

The time of reckoning is upon us. It is Election Day eve. After tomorrow, we’ll see one of two scenarios: Republicans will suddenly go back to caring about the Constitution, or Democrats will suddenly go back to not caring about the Constitution. Did I step on some toes, there? I’m sure I did. I’ve been trampling on the closely held sensibilities of a lot of varying factions for the past five years, and if God be willing, I’ll continue on... Read more

For the past five years I have attempted to make the case against Donald Trump, to both the secular world, and in outreach to the evangelical community that seems to revere him. I saw from the beginning that he was incompetent and excessively corrupt. In fact, his entire 2016 candidacy, as I’ve pointed out before, was more akin to a Saturday Night Live skit than anything real. My biggest concern, however, was not just his corruption and political puerility, but... Read more

I have sounded this alarm before, and it is time to sound it again: The American church is fast proving to be the lukewarm church, and without major revival and a change of heart, I fear many will find themselves destitute and castaways, in the soon coming days of heavy trial. The central truth American Christians need to remember, as they carry their Sunday morning worship into the Monday through Saturday grind, is that our God is not a God... Read more

And the hits just keep on coming. The Trump presidency may very well produce more scathing tell-all books than any other administration in history. How many of them are accurate may never be fully known. That being said, if even a fraction of truth exists in them, then this noble experiment of self-governance has failed. It has buckled and succumbed under the weight of ignorance and through the moral erosion that has slowly eaten away at our foundation for decades.... Read more

At what point do they stop covering for him? How far are they willing to go, and how many of their previously held “values” are they willing to reverse course on, in order to defend their god-president? Of course, I’m talking about the People’s Temple of Trump, and the Republican Party, in general, as they fall all over themselves in denial over the latest Trump controversy. On Thursday, The Atlantic released a damning article by Jeffrey Goldberg. In the article,... Read more

This seems like an appropriate time to remind everyone that Everything Trump Touches Dies. To be fair, however, I don’t think this is so much a case of Trump corrupting, but rather, revealing. It takes a certain lack of morality, faith, and/or character to become a full-throated Trump acolyte, to begin with. Sometimes we miss the signs, but given the proper conditions – in this case, the introduction of Trumpism into the national bloodstream – the dreck breaks free and... Read more
