Trump’s Military Madness Parade Actually Makes Sense (But Must Be Stopped!)

Shouldn’t we taxpayers get to see the missiles, warheads, tanks, drones, guns and other warfare hardware that over half of federal discretionary spending goes toward every year? Our tax dollars at work! But then, to have equal time, there should be a parade of homeless veterans, illiterate children getting poor education in our schools, people without health care, and would-be workers who can’t get jobs to help build the green economy, in order to represent the urgent domestic and environmental investments crowded out by our obsession with shoveling money into making things that go boom.

US Global Standing Plummets as Trump Threatens Human Rights at Home and Abroad

Trump “displays a disturbing fondness for rights-trampling strongmen,” wrote Kenneth Roth, executive director of HRW. The report also denounced the president’s threats to human rights within the U.S., noting that “Trump has targeted refugees and immigrants, calling them criminals and security threats; emboldened racist politics by equivocating on white nationalism; and consistently championed anti-Muslim ideas and policies,” and cataloging his administration’s threats to women’s rights and Americans’ right to healthcare as well.

Donald J. Trump: The ‘Least Popular First-Year President on Record’

With more than two-thirds of all Americans now disapproving of the job performance of President Donald Trump, a new poll out Saturday shows that he is now the most unpopular U.S. president during his first year in office since surveys of this kind have been taken.

Double Standards? Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty, But Obama’s Men Were Not Held to the Same Standard

Double Standards? Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty, But Obama’s Men Were Not Held to the Same Standard

Michael Flynn has pled guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversation with the Russian Ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak. The conversation occurred AFTER Trump won the 2016 election and before he was inaugurated. The conversation involved US sanctions against Russia and a UN resolution concerning Israel.
Why did Flynn lie? There was nothing wrong with him speaking to the Ambassador during the presidential transition phase. Claims that he was undermining Obama’s policy toward Russia are nonsense. It’s common practice for an incoming president’s staff to speak with foreign officials, in order to set up future goals and policies.

How We Can Prevent Nuclear War With North Korea

The obedience of Republicans in Congress is almost always politically motivated, since they fear that moving outside of party lines will cost them their jobs. But if they think that their obedience will actually lose them the next election they will be less likely to follow in Eichmann’s footsteps. That’s why large-scale public pressure is the key to preventing nuclear war.

A Sitting Senator Just Committed Political Suicide by Telling the Truth About US Politics

Senator Jeff Flake: “Mr. President, I rise today to address a matter that has been much on my mind, at a moment when it seems that our democracy is more defined by our discord and our dysfunction than it is by our values and our principles… It must also be said that I rise today with no small measure of regret. Regret, because of the state of our disunion, regret because of the disrepair and destructiveness of our politics, regret because of the indecency of our discourse, regret because of the coarseness of our leadership, regret for the compromise of our moral authority, and by our — all of our — complicity in this alarming and dangerous state of affairs. It is time for our complicity and our accommodation of the unacceptable to end…”
