Father’s Day or Not, It’s Always a Man’s World

How is it, that 50 women, yes 50, can come forward with stunningly similar stories about how Bill Cosby drugged and raped them? It is not just the number of women, or the similarities in their stories, or even the span of years over which the stories are reported to have taken place. No, the worst thing about his reported actions is the network of enablers who helped Cosby get away with his crimes against these women. And it looks like, with today’s announcement, that Cosby won’t be going away anytime soon, that he just may have gotten away...

A Man Who Can’t Keep His Fingers off His ‘Twitter’ Certainly Shouldn’t Have Them on the ‘Nuclear Button’

America, we are at a turning point. We must make a very important, and potentially long-lasting decision about who we want to lead us during a time of uncertainty. I, for one, must say that the idea of a man, Donald Trump, who has so little control of his own actions that he would ‘tweet’ statements that could jeopardize even his own ability to survive, should be the President of the United States is just insane. The president has the ability to launch some of the most destructive nuclear weapons imaginable, if he so chooses. Think about it, Donald...

A President with No Vision for America, Just An Eye For His Own Gold

You know the saying: ‘Sometimes you have to take the good with the bad.’ In other words, everything good also has a ‘bad’ side to it, and everything is relative and you can’t understand what is good until you compare it to what is bad. President Trump seems to have turned that universal principle on its head. Why? Because Trump, with his huge number of faults, least of all the fact that he is under investigation by the FBI after just 148 days of being sworn in as president, seems to offer no redeeming features. This would all be...

President Trump Is the Modern-Day ‘King Lear’

As you likely know, King Lear is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare. It depicts the gradual descent into madness of the title character, after he disposes of his kingdom giving bequests to two of his three daughters based on their flattery of him, bringing tragic consequences for all. Derived from the legend of Leir of Britain, a mythological pre-Roman Celtic king, the play has been widely adapted for the stage and motion pictures, with the title role coveted by many of the world’s most accomplished actors. The popularity of the story is likely owed to the fact that...

Trump Says That ‘The World Is Laughing at Us’–No, Sir, They Are Laughing At You

Speaking from the White House recently, Trump said he was open to renegotiating aspects of the Paris climate agreement, which was inked under his predecessor and which all nations except two have signed onto. But he was withering in his criticism of the pact, which he cast as a humiliating defeat for American workers that unfairly advantaged foreign countries. “At what point does America get demeaned? At what point do they start laughing at us as a country?” Trump inquired during an afternoon event held in the Rose Garden. “We want fair treatment,” Trump said. “We don’t want other...

President Trump Is in so Much Trouble, His Lawyer Just Hired a Lawyer

IMAGE CREDIT: POLITICUS USA Michael Cohen, who for years has served as President Trump’s personal attorney, has hired a lawyer of his own to help him navigate the expanding Russia investigation. Cohen confirmed Friday to The Washington Post that he has retained Stephen M. Ryan, a Washington-based lawyer from the law firm McDermott, Will & Emery who has experience prosecuting criminal cases as an assistant U.S. attorney. It wouldn’t be a stretch to think that Trump’s early-morning tweet Friday, in which he confirmed he is under investigation, and appears to be pointing the finger at Deputy Attorney General Rod...

President Trump Is Officially in ‘Meltdown’ Mode

In the latest stunning tweet, President Trump confirmed Friday morning he is under investigation, and appears to be pointing the finger at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein: There is so much that is wrong with this behavior. To begin with, Trump originally said when he fired FBI Director James Comey that he was doing so on recommendation of his Deputy AG Rosenstein, then said he had already decided to fire Comey when he asked Rosenstein to write up his thoughts on Comey. So, right there Trump is completely contradicting himself on the reason for his firing of Comey. That...

Have Trump and Son-in-Law, Jared Kushner, Been Laundering Dirty Russian Money?

You would have to live under a rock to wonder just what it is that Russia has over Donald Trump. Let’s face it, team Trump made changes to the Republican platform–remember that all Republicans ‘own’ that–before the Republican National Convention. But the only changes they made were changes that personally helped Vladimir Putin. Isn’t this curious? What exactly could it be that Putin has on Trump that would make Trump bend over backwards for him? At first it appeared that perhaps Trump had borrowed large sums of money to fund his US building projects, and that does appear to...
