Senate Republicans finally admit he did it (but it still doesn’t matter)

It feels like we’ve been divided for so long. But earlier this week I was heartened to learn that there is something that 73% of Americans agree on. Can you believe it? I decided to make a list: What can you get 73% of Americans to agree on these days? Hating the Patriots Whitney Houston’sContinue reading “Senate Republicans finally admit he did it (but it still doesn’t matter)”

The President’s spiritual advisor is a perfect fit

Paula White, prosperity gospel televangelist, millionaire, and former megachurch pastor, is perhaps Donald Trump’s closest and most trusted spiritual advisor. She’s also an official member of the administration, serving as Advisor to the Faith & Opportunity Initiative, an office that coordinates outreach to religious communities. I’d never heard of her before she emerged as partContinue reading “The President’s spiritual advisor is a perfect fit”

The first sitting President attended the March For Life today. I wish that were a good thing.

It’s hard to blame pro-lifers for being excited: today, for the first time in its 45-year history, a sitting President attended the March For Life in person. Other Republican Presidents have addressed the March via video, but none have actually shown up until now. This is not an insignificant moment for a movement that hasContinue reading “The first sitting President attended the March For Life today. I wish that were a good thing.”

Newly released documents devastate Trump’s defense. (Not that it will matter.)

Tuesday, January 14th, the House Intelligence Committee released new documents received from Lev Parnas. Parnas is a Ukrainian-born American citizen and an associate of Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani. Parnas was arrested in October while trying to leave the country, and indicted on federal charges. (So weird how Trump associates keep getting arrested and indicted,Continue reading “Newly released documents devastate Trump’s defense. (Not that it will matter.)”

I’m on my knees, begging you to stop watching Fox News

The hubby and I always like to have a show to watch together in the evenings after the kids go to bed. Currently, it’s The Americans. (We’re late; we know.) It’s a great show, set in the 80s, about a couple of Soviet spies living disguised as ordinary Americans. You know it’s a great show,Continue reading “I’m on my knees, begging you to stop watching Fox News”

The Trump GOP is Embracing Socialism

The defense I hear most often from Republicans who aren’t necessarily big Trump fans but believe he’s better than the alternative is this: “It’s Trump or socialism.” Unfortunately, they’re wrong. Trump is already introducing socialism to the US. It started with his trade war. The President promised to correct our “unfair” trade relationship with ChinaContinue reading “The Trump GOP is Embracing Socialism”

Republican Rebuttals

I’ve heard from a few readers about yesterday’s post, asking why I didn’t include the parts of Ambassador Sondland’s testimony that help the Republican case, rather than only the damaging parts. The two main reasons were: 1. Space and time constraints, and 2. I don’t believe any of his testimony actually helped the Republican case.Continue reading “Republican Rebuttals”

House Republicans Just Ran out of Cliff

At this point, Republicans who are still defending the President are basically Wile E. Coyote barreling full speed ahead through thin air, not yet realizing they’ve run out of cliff. Gordon Sondland, Ambassador to the European Union, who was appointed to his plum assignment by Trump after donating $1 million to Trump’s inaugural committee, andContinue reading “House Republicans Just Ran out of Cliff”

Don’t Vote for People who Think You’re Stupid

Can you BELIEVE it? Shifty Schiff is ABUSING his chairmanship and REFUSING to allow DULY ELECTED Members of Congress to ask questions, all because they are REPUBLICANS! Aren’t you OUTRAGED?! (Again with the “duly elected.” Lord, give me patience.) Watch the clip if you’d like to see a textbook example of a publicity stunt. IfContinue reading “Don’t Vote for People who Think You’re Stupid”

If You Can’t Defend It, Confuse Them

If you’re listening only to Republicans’ takes on the first public impeachment hearing yesterday, you’ve been left with the impression that Democrats limped home last night, battered and ashamed, having learned nothing of value and having their star witness exposed as worthless. In fact, if you’ve listened only to Republicans’ takes on this process fromContinue reading “If You Can’t Defend It, Confuse Them”
