With Justice Ginsberg gone, Democrats may have realized how badly they played themselves

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 […]

Scientific American — a magazine that endorses no one — endorsed Joe Biden for President

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 […]

The financial markets will tell Trump what it thinks about so-called coronavirus stimulus talks and Trump’s weekend executive orders

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 […]

Turning from bad to worse: Trump wants US hospitals to send coronavirus cases and testing data directly to the White House, bypassing the CDC

Placing data in the hands of an erratic administration means more than politicizing science — it’s downright dangerous. Pardon the fucked-up language I’m using, but Team Trump’s demand for hospitals to send coronavirus data directly to the White House — while bypassing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a data collection point — […]
