Trump Has Now Been Revealed As The ‘Emperor With No Clothes’

This couldn’t be more embarrassing for Donald Trump: He has been revealed as the weakest president in American history and even Republican senators are admitting it. The president is the leader of his party, yet Trump has struggled to get Republican lawmakers moving in lockstep on health care and other major issues, leaving no signature legislation in his first five months in office. The confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch is his most-cited achievement to date. “This president is the first president in our history who has neither political nor military experience, and thus it has been a...

Why Are We Even Thinking About Taking Healthcare Away From 22 Million Americans?

SENATE LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL, WHO ‘HATES’ YOUR HEALTHCARE I don’t know about you, but if I get cancer or have a heart attack, it would be really great to know that I wouldn’t have to spend my last dime to make sure I am still living. You know, it’s kind of the idea that if we have a brush with death, it is almost not worth surviving it if we can’t afford to eat and pay our bills. Oh, but I forgot, the richest among us, those making millions a year, want more money and they don’t care if...

Republican Representative Chaffetz Thinks Poor People Shouldn’t Buy An iPhone If They Want Healthcare

Representative Jason Chaffetz recently said poor people need to ‘choose’ between having a phone and dying from lack of healthcare: “And so maybe rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest that in their own healthcare,” Chaffetz said. That is the most insulting comment I have heard from a Member of Congress, probably ever. And that is saying something. But that is where we are today, with the people who supposedly represent us. And as an aside, I don’t those who run...

Trump Will Happily Throw Son-in-Law Jared Kushner Under The Bus To Avoid Russian Money Laundering Charges

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...

Chris Wallace of Fox News Has the Nerve to Say Democrats Are Mad at the Obamas for Taking Vacations? Seriously?

Wow, put this one in the ‘crazy’ file. Chris Wallace of FOX News just wrote that the ‘left’ is angry because the Obama family is taking too many vacations right now. Um, Chris, you know that Barack Obama is no longer president, right? And if, in fact, you do know this, then you would also know that the Obama family can do whatever they want. Neither Barack or Michelle has a day-to-day job right now. So I am not sure why this would be a problem, for anyone. In fact, President trump has played golf at least 16 of...

Trump Said Russia Didn’t Hack Our Election, but Now Says They Did and It’s Obama’s Fault

President Trump appeared to concede Monday that Russia tried to help him win the 2016 election, and he blamed former President Barack Obama for not only failing to stop the foreign meddling but for obstructing an investigation into the hacking. In a series of tweets, Mr. Trump sought to turn the tables on Democrats by accusing President Obama of having “colluded” with Moscow or having “obstructed” the U.S. investigation into Russian interference by failing to retaliate against the Kremlin until after the election. Democrats have been leveling similar charges of collusion and obstruction against Mr. Trump for months. “The...

MSNBC Needs to Start Hiring Quality Conservative Commentators, Not Just Fox Rejects

First Greta Van Susteren, then Megyn Kelly, now it is Hugh Hewitt. Well, I will give left-leaning MSNBC credit for attempting to get both sides of the story, but I think you would do better to hire some real talent from the conservative side, not just people who had to run away from Roger Ailes for fear of being abused. Keep...

How Come ‘Religious Freedom’ Proponents Don’t Think People Shouldn’t Also Be Free Not To Be Religious?

The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday it will hear the case of a suburban Denver baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple on religious grounds. Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, had refused to sell a customized cake for a gay couple’s union, claiming a faith-based exemption to the state’s anti-discrimination law. State courts had ruled against the businessman. The high court will now decide whether applying Colorado’s public accommodations law to compel a suburban Denver baker to create “expression”– a wedding cake — violates his constitutionally protected Christian beliefs about marriage. First, I...
