  • 'Do not ignore what’s right in front of us. A wave is building'
    There's nothing like dreaming about a giant blue wave during a holiday. Fortunately, it's not just a dream, it's something political prognosticators like Amy Walter at Cook Political Report are starting to ponder. Walter writes: First, there were the impressive results from [Virginia's] elections. This week, we’ve seen two polls — one by Quinnipiac and […]
  • While Trump golfs, White House insists he is 'NOT' having a 'low-key' day
    Only a White House as juvenile as Donald Trump would engage in a cover-up over its fearless leader’s very busy golf schedule. That's exactly what happened Wednesday after an unsuspecting Washington Post reporter delivered the morning’s first pool report from West Palm Beach stating that spokesperson Lindsay Walters anticipated Trump having a "low-key day." She also said that the president plans […]
  • Second judge blocks Trump's 'capricious, arbitrary, and unqualified' transgender military ban
    Donald Trump's policy-on-the-fly tweet in July announcing a ban on transgender servicemembers was thoroughly obliterated Tuesday by a second federal judge.   U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis of Maryland, a George H.W. Bush appointee, suspended implementation of the entire ban on both trans recruitment and retention along with its prohibition on medical treatment for […]
  • Sexual assaulter Trump privately doubted the accusers of sexual predator Moore
    Campaign Action What happens when a narcissistic sociopath with an established history of sexual assault confronts the notion that a candidate made in his mold has been credibly accused of sexually preying on teenagers as an adult man in his 30s? The narcissistic sociopath, still miffed at being revealed as a total creeper, endorses the sexual predator […]
  • Republicans can either pass a DACA fix and avoid a government shutdown, or not
    As "Congress speeds toward [a] shutdown over Dreamers,” according to Politico, it's Republicans who hold the keys. Though they can't control the votes of all their members, they do control which bills make it to the floor. That gives them a choice between finding a fix for a program Donald Trump is killing that protects […]
  • Trump endorses Roy Moore: A pedophile is better than 'a liberal Democrat'
    Forget about letting Alabama voters decide their Senate race, Donald Trump threw all that crap out the window Tuesday when he told reporters at the White House, "We don’t need a liberal Democrat in that seat.” Here's Trump’s response to being asked, “What is your message to women, sir, at this pivotal moment in our country where we are […]
  • The GOP tax heist: Looting 50 percent of Americans to line the pockets of the top 1 percent
    The more daylight the GOP’s tax plan sees, the more it stinks to high heaven. The takeaway from the latest analysis of the Senate bill shows that it will actually raise taxes on about one-half of Americans when all is said and done. The Washington Post writes: Here is the key takeaway from the new […]
  • New Democratic ad turns the words of Roy Moore's own party against him
    A new ad from Democratic Alabama Senate candidate Doug Jones uses the statements of sexual predator Roy Moore’s own party against him to make the point that the Republican candidate is just too morally bankrupt to be elected. Perhaps most notably, the ad features the words of the former occupier of that Senate seat, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is one of […]
  • Moore's sex scandal metastasizes into GOP candidacies nationwide
    Alabama Republicans have placed GOP candidates across the country in a disastrous political situation by refusing to oust pedophile Roy Moore as their Senate candidate. Already, Republicans are being forced to choose between the Mitch McConnell and Steve Bannon wings of the GOP, but with no surefire way of avoiding becoming collateral damage themselves. Choosing the Bannon […]
  • Moore accuser on his denials of knowing her: 'I wonder how many me's he doesn't know'
    One of the original four accusers of Roy Moore gave nothing short of an incredibly poised interview Monday morning on NBC, saying that "a weight's been lifted" since she came forward about Moore's sexual molestation of her when she was just 14. "I've had huge support," Leigh Corfman told Today’s Savannah Guthrie, adding that a […]
