Why Do Americans Idolize People like Conor Mcgregor Who Says He Is ‘Half-Black, from the Belly Button Down?’

Conor McGregor told a crowd of fans at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday that he is “half black from the bellybutton down” in response to criticism for racist-driven comments he made earlier in the week. The New York City event was the third of four stops on a world tour designed to bring attention to the Irishman’s boxing rules fight with Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas next month. Americans will lavish millions of dollars on the fighter for the fight. Yes, this is in fact a clear definition of where America’s values have gone. We have become...

The Trump/Kushner Mafia Clan Is About To Go To Jail

It has become crystal clear that the Trump/Kushner family will do, say and act in any way they can to get what they want. Just as Jared Kushner’s dad, who tried, unsuccessfully, to avoid jail by threatening his own sister. Crooks, creeps, you name it. Hardly people who should be ‘infecting’ the people’s house, the White...

Chris Christie’s ‘Beachgate’ and ‘Bridgegate’ Show He Serves Only Himself

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s week started with Beachgate — viral photos showing him lounging on a public beach closed by the state budget shutdown. Next week, Bridgegate will revisit. It doesn’t promise the same kind of international response, but the term-limited Republican will be in the headlines again when the former aide prosecutors say masterminded the 2013 George Washington Bridge lane closure scheme is sentenced, and when the attorney who represented him during the scandal gets a hearing on Capitol Hill to be the next FBI director. David Wildstein is set to be sentenced Wednesday, and the GOP...

Trump’s ‘Lyin’ Ted’ and ‘Little Marco’ Are Feeling The Heat In The Trumpcare ‘Kitchen’

Karma is such a great thing, isn’t it? Eventually, the ‘jerks’ in the world get their comeuppance. Trump goes around insulting everyone, even having called two of his presidential primary opponents ‘Lyin’ Ted’ and ‘Little Marco.’ There were names for others, as well, but let’s try and keep the negativity to a minimum. So now, Trump is the president (excuse me while I barf), and he is trying to jam a healthcare bill through Congress that has just two objectives: 1) Get back at Obama for having made fun of him at the National Correspondents’ Dinner by repealing his...

The Trump Administration Is Sinking Faster Than The Titanic

This thing is sinking, and it is sinking fast. We can pretend that the water isn’t filling the lower chambers of the White House, but it would be a fool’s errand to do so. It isn’t just that Donald Trump can’t get things done, or that he is focusing on twitter more than doing his job, or that he is just plain disgusting. He is also under investigation by the FBI for possibly working with our enemy, Russia, for having swayed the election in his favor. Wow! This is incredible that a U.S. President could be failing so spectacularly...

No More Excuses, Donald Trump

At some point, the continued investigations into Donald Trump’s White House become an excuse to avoid dealing with what Congress and the American public already know. After former FBI director James Comey’s testimony, that day may have arrived. Investigations have their place — but so does action. President Trump tried to thwart the FBI’s probe into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, as Comey’s sworn testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee made painfully clear. There’s still a lot for Congress and special counsel Robert Mueller to learn about the broader problem of Russian interference with the election and potential...
