Is it treason yet?

Our sister paper, The Failing New York Times, reported late yesterday that President Donald Trump was briefed back in February that Russian President Vladimir Putin had placed a cash bounty on as many American service members as Taliban forces in Afghanistan could kill. Smart money says that three United States Marines were killed as part […]

‘Russian’ Republicans Endorse Putin’s (and thus Trump’s) Vision for America

It’s this simple: Republicans who endorse Donald J. Trump’s actions as the current Oval Office occupant support Russia’s takeover of the United States. When they sing along with congressional Republicans that the impeachment inquiry is a “witch hunt,” just another attempt to oust the criminally inclined, wannbe dictator of our country, they are supporting Russia […]

Trump’s shameful move in Syria is a chance to blame it on ‘Code Pink’

For more than a week, news feeds have been filling up with rip-n-read stories of betrayal and inconsistency, manic highs, depressive lows, unanticipated reversals, upheavals and humiliating concessions. Donald Trump, Syria, the Kurds, war, ethnic cleansing, well-intentioned lying, benign extortion, moral failure, deeply considered impetuosity, malignant stupidity, and morbid idiocy are all good metadata words […]

The Dump Trump Dump: Report from the Dictators’ Ball

President (for Life) Trump’s annual Dictators’ Ball at his Mar-A-Lago estate was, by all permitted accounts, a rollicking success. The event was a sellout, though the 500 highly coveted $1 million dollar tickets were restricted to “current and former dictators, their spouses, mistresses, cronies, money-launderers and weapons-suppliers, and Fox News hosts and executives.” As always, […]

The Trump Dump: Who Killed Jamal Khashoggi?

It’s a mystery to rival “Who’s Buried in Grant’s Tomb?” Is the de facto Saudi ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (known as MBS to Vlad Putin and his many party pals) responsible for the recent death in Turkey of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi? President Trump is unconvinced. As always, Trump’s word is good enough […]

McCain’s statement a fitting rebuke to our nation’s treasonous president

Statement by U.S. Sen. John McCain, currently fighting brain cancer but still able to stitch together words that most in his Republican Party will not: “Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy […]

None dare call it treason
