The Tweet That Is Shaking the War Party

Most of the Donald’s tweets amount to street brawling with his political enemies, but occasionally one of them slices through Imperial Washington’s sanctimonious cant. Indeed, Monday evening’s 140 characters of solid cut right to the bone: The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting … Continue reading “The Tweet That Is Shaking the War Party”

Home Alone – Trump Is the Kevin McCallister of American Politics

It’s as if on election night the shocked and exasperated rulers of the Imperial City ordered Donald Trump to sleep in the White House attic. Unlike Kevin McCallister’s family in the movie, however, the establishment never stopped obsessing about his bratty insolence and never intended for him to rejoin the family the next morning – … Continue reading “Home Alone – Trump Is the Kevin McCallister of American Politics”

Brennan, Rice, Power – Lock Them Up!

We frequently hear people say they have nothing to hide – so surrendering privacy and constitutional rights to the Surveillance State may not be such a big deal if it helps catch a terrorist or two. But with each passing day in the RussiaGate drama we are learning that this superficial exoneration is dangerously beside … Continue reading “Brennan, Rice, Power – Lock Them Up!”

Why Imperial Washington Should Cool It On North Korea

The threat of nuclear war has again sharply escalated owing to North Korea’s apparent successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), albeit one that traveled only 600 miles, not the 6,000 miles needed to reach California. Likewise, it was only a two-stage ICBM not the three-stages needed for extended range delivery. And there was … Continue reading “Why Imperial Washington Should Cool It On North Korea”

The Little Putsch That Could… Beget a Great Big Coup

Bull’s eye! "They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice … You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people!" The Donald has never spoken … Continue reading “The Little Putsch That Could… Beget a Great Big Coup”

Derangement and Danger on the Potomac

The horrific shooting spree on the practice field of the GOP’s congressional baseball team happened early in the morning, but it was hardly the end of Wednesday’s madness on the Potomac. As it happened, the former was apparently another random eruption by of one of America’s sicko lone wolves – a wretch in the same … Continue reading “Derangement and Danger on the Potomac”

The Donald’s Risible Rendezvous in Riyadh

If the Donald had thrown a dart at the world map blindfolded, he could not have picked a worse stop than Riyadh for his maiden foreign journey. That’s because there isn’t one anywhere on the planet. The Saudi capital is the very heart of darkness – the seat of an absolutist tyranny that has nothing … Continue reading “The Donald’s Risible Rendezvous in Riyadh”

Bravo! The Donald Finally Fired a Swamp Creature

We were beginning to think the Donald’s days as the Great Disrupter were over before he even got started. So bringing the hammer down on one of the most self-righteous prigs and self-aggrandizing swamp creatures to ever inhabit the Imperial City came just in the nick of time. After all, just in the last week … Continue reading “Bravo! The Donald Finally Fired a Swamp Creature”

Why The Donald Should Cool It On North Korea – The Fat Boy Can’t Even Deliver His ‘Little Boy’

The realized truth of modern history is crystal clear. Washington had no business intervening in a quarrel between two no-count wanna be dictators (Syngman Rhee and Kim il Sung) on the Korean peninsula in June 1950, and surely has no business still stationing 29,000 American soldiers there 67 years latter. Yet owing to the institutionalized … Continue reading “Why The Donald Should Cool It On North Korea – The Fat Boy Can’t Even Deliver His ‘Little Boy’”
