A leader who shows up to a problem with a blowtorch instead of water … I live in a New York City neighborhood that’s quiet to the point where I can hear different species of birds — not unless they’re drowned out by the occasional foghorn. Far from being the anarchist jurisdiction that President Donald […]Read More Anarchist in Chief Trump threatens to to hold funds from unequal cities he calls ‘anarchist’
Investing in Wall Street and ignoring Main Street can lead to bad voter consequences — and here we are … I mentioned that I had more to say about the transitioning of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, so I’ll start by sharing the collective Liberal freakout that the combination of her vacancy, President […]Read More With Justice Ginsberg gone, Democrats may have realized how badly they played themselves
I hope every media outlet is paying attention to this … Earth is traveling through 2020 with smaller mountain ice caps, warmer oceans, a torrid letter run on hurricane names, an American coastline’s slow and inevitable submersion into the Atlantic Ocean, forest infernos that can’t be subdued by dwindling rains, and President Donald Trump picks […]Read More Scientific American — a magazine that endorses no one — endorsed Joe Biden for President
who thought conquering White supremacy would be easy? National election polls show Vice President Joe Biden holds a 10-point lead over President Donald Trump and CNN calls Biden’s position the steadiest on record — but I don’t yet see a landslide. I quickly crunched polling data in nine battleground states where I compared the 2016 […]Read More Attention: the Trump-Biden election will be tight
Waiting for Trump’s reaction … Four years, three months, and 26 days ago, three pieces of interesting news arrived with a Military Times survey of active American military personnel. First, the soldiers preferred — by a 2-to-1 margin — Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton to be the next US President. Second, 20 percent of the […]Read More Military Times survey: US soldiers want a new President
If your chances of winning are slim, cause chaos to even the odds — my guess. I can only see two reasons for President Donald Trump suggesting that people mail in their votes and then vote in person. I’ll get to those later. While I’m not fully confident in polls, they show that Trump will […]Read More Why did President Trump tell Americans to vote by mail, and in person?
Fake-Christian death cults tend to do this sort of thing — for the good of the people, of course. Remember when I rapped about the Republican Party’s transformation to a fake-Christian death cult? Meet the party’s triple-down commitment on that bet: There will be no GOP platform this year. Instead, and with no hint of […]Read More To avoid a ‘small group’ writing the GOP platform, a small group decided no platform is needed
Too much Hollywood on their minds — and at the worst time. The New York Times’ editorial judgement sometimes confuses me. And then I remind myself that the newspaper loves to publish Upper-West-Side-White-Liberal-feel-good stories on current events as if each are overhyped movie-of-the-year candidates that focus on people’s personal triumphs, and can be screened only […]Read More On Obama’s convention speech last night: what the hell is up with the New York Times?
and Donald Trump is its current leader. Government policies enable citizens to either live better, or die sooner — a reality that is hidden by the mist of feverish political debates on television and social media. Your response to this reality shows the world what your moral wiring looks like. Poverty in America means people […]Read More The Republican Party has become a fake-Christian death cult
We’re a few minutes away from the financial markets opening this morning, so I want to quickly document my thoughts about this weekend’s shitshow about the coronavirus fake-stimulus talks implosion and Trump’s so-called executive orders (here, here, here, and here) to break the logjam. Consider my remarks additions to this and this. Trump Economic Advisor […]Read More The financial markets will tell Trump what it thinks about so-called coronavirus stimulus talks and Trump’s weekend executive orders
