Trump’s Tweet About ‘Tapes’ May Be What Takes Him Down

IMAGE CREDIT: NEWSPLEX Ironically, Donald Trump’s odd tweet 42 days ago suggesting he may have ‘tapes’ of fired FBI Director James Comey may very well end up being the single most damaging tweet he has published. That’s because it was that tweet that caused Comey to release his notes to a friend who leaked it to the press. That memo is what put in motion the events that eventually led to the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Trump’s involvement with the Russian Government. In other words, had Trump not published that tweet, there may not have been...

Rich Insurance Companies Have a Bigger Voice in Congress Than You Do

Let’s face it, you and I mean nothing to Members of Congress. Congress really only cares about the rich lobbyists who work for the rich insurance companies. That is why your health care will be taken away or will be more expensive, if you need it, than you could ever imagine. Trump is spreading his ‘cancer’ to all of us and he doesn’t give a s@it if we never get a cure for...

The Incredibly Gullible 36% Who Support Trump Are Making the Rest of Our Lives Miserable

We all know the expression, which is also just a fact of physics: ‘A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.’ At this point, it can’t be argued that Donald Trump has even a whisper of a care about the plight of the average American. And worse, that ‘average American’ makes up the bulk of Trump’s supporters. It is hard to understand why they don’t see that the man they support is actually trying to make their lives even worse, but either way, the rest of us must deal with the disaster that is the Trump presidency....

Trump’s Ego Made Him Think the Government Is a Business and That Is His Fatal Flaw

KING LEAR STATUE It couldn’t be clearer that Donald Trump had no idea what the job of President of the United States is, really. He thought he could bluster his way into the White House the way he has bullied women and employees all his life. Guess what Trump, you just stepped into a pile of you know what, because you didn’t think for a moment what your were doing, you just let your out-of-control ego guide you and now you are going to fall faster than a concrete statue of King Lear being dumped off a...

Trump Admits Through His Actions He is Not a U.S. President, He Is a U.S. Traitor

Donald Trump has sided with one of the arch enemies of the U.S., Russia, over the fact that Russia has been proven to have committed an act of war by interfering in our democracy by attempting to influence our presidential election. Mother Jones put it best: “The Trump-Russia scandal is the subject of multiple investigations that may or may not unearth new revelations, but this much is already certain: Donald Trump is guilty. We don’t need additional information about the Russian covert scheme to undermine the 2016 campaign, or about the curious interactions between Team Trump and Russia, or...

Mitch McConnell Pulls His Head into His ‘Turtle Shell’ as He Hides Trumpcare Bill from Americans

There is no mystery why the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, is trying to push the Trumpcare bill through quickly. The legislation would repeal major provisions of the Affordable Care Act. Opening it to scrutiny before a vote would be the congressional equivalent of exposing a vampire to sunlight. That is one mistake Mr. McConnell, a master of the Senate’s chicanery, is not about to make. As one Republican aide put it to Axios on Monday, “We aren’t stupid.” Better to pass a terrible bill in the cover of darkness just as the House did with its version, the...

Donald Trump Must Move Out of His ‘Glass House’ to Survive

Oh, remember the days, when Donald Trump, presidential candidate, blamed everything that went wrong on President Obama? He even said this about President Obama: “I think he’s the worst president, maybe, in the history of our country.” Come to think of it, Trump is even blaming Obama for things that have happened under Trump’s watch. Now, while we were all surprised that Trump actually became the next president, including Trump himself, he should have thought through what would happen if, in fact, he did win. He has called President Obama the worst president, yet Trump’s current approval rating is...

President Trump’s Supporters Are Really Just Incredibly Jealous of Him

Just 152 days into his presidency, Americans no longer expect President Donald Trump to keep the promises that got him elected. He walked back his promises on China, delivered nothing on his pledge to create infrastructure jobs, and—instead of “draining the swamp”—filled his cabinet with billionaires tied to corporate interests. The policies he has supported would do real harm to some of his staunchest supporters—white men without a college degree. The recent House vote on the American Health Care Act, also known as Trumpcare, will kick millions off their insurance. And he has proposed the elimination of half of...
