  • For Trump, Generals Are Everywhere Cross-posted with TomDispatch.com   If you’re going to surround yourself with generals in the Oval Office, as Donald Trump has done, that means one thing in these years: you’re going to appoint men whose careers were made (or unmade) by what was once known as the Global War on Terror.  They will be deeply associated with Washington’s ...
  • How Movies Teach Us About Purpose PwC’s famous Oscars® “Ballot Briefcase” is making a whirlwind, eleven-city tour across the U.S. en route to the Academy Awards in Hollywood, California on Sunday, February 26.  Moviegoers this year had the opportunity to travel—vicariously—even farther than that. Thanks to the magic of filmmaking, we visited nearly every continent. We felt the water and tasted ...
  • The Republican Tax Sham Watch your wallets. Republicans are pushing a new corporate tax plan that will end up costing most of you a bundle. Here’s what you should know about the so-called “border adjustment tax.”  The U.S. imports about $2.7 trillion worth of goods a year. Many imports are cheap because labor costs are much lower in places like ...
  • Republicans Want Retirement Plans That Keep Wall Street Rich We all know how hard it is to be rich. After all, it takes a lot of money to keep up multiple homes, pay for first class air travel, expensive cars and the like. For this reason, most people would naturally support a Republican plan to make workers pay higher fees on their retirement accounts ...
  • It’s Time For World Leaders To Put Trump’s America ‘On Notice’ HONG KONG ― The list of countries and international institutions the new U.S. president and his cabinet have affronted in just three weeks ― China, Germany, Mexico, Australia, France, Iran, the United Nations, the European Union and others ― should indicate how far this administration is willing to go in talking tough with the rest of the world. ...
  • Extinguishing Donald Trump’s Swedish Immigration ‘Fire’ As a former intelligence officer, I am a major advocate of the maxim, “facts matter.”  As such, I often find myself cringing when listening to President Trump wax philosophically – and creatively – on any number of issues.  The most recent example of this are the president’s comments about Sweden, made during a rally before ...
  • Take It From An Actual Dom: ‘Fifty Shades’ Is Pathetic At first glance, BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadism, and masochism) may seem like an abusive practice carried out only between heartless, psychologically disturbed sadists and victims with low self-worth. Appearances, however, are often misleading, and with BDSM, this misunderstanding is especially profound, as is obvious in the new movie release, “Fifty Shades Darker,” an erotic romance ...

  • How Living With IBD Helped Me Discover My Superpowers If you had x-ray vision, what would you do with it? Look through walls and spy on your co-workers? Find your dog’s lost ball under the couch, or lazily peek through your fridge to see if you’re almost out of your favorite Greek yogurt? Or maybe, like a traditional superhero, you would wander your town ...
  • When Trump Attacks The Press, He Is Attacking American Democracy The first month of Donald Trump’s presidency has effectively functioned as an infomercial for why he is an unmitigated disaster for the United States. Trying to figure out one strand of this administration’s insanity to examine is kind of like trying to isolate the carrot pieces in a bowl of vegetable soup. Everything else keeps ...
  • Rocky Starts In Presidential History Since it is Presidents’ Day (or whatever else you call today, apostrophized or not), I thought I’d take it easy on our current president, and take a break from the regular ridicule I’ve been heaping upon him since he was sworn in. Today’s supposed to be a noble holiday, after all, so I thought I’d ...
  • Not Even He Can Mess This Up Donald Trump just had the worst week of the most disastrous start to a presidency since William Henry Harrison came down with a fever and expired 30 days, 12 hours, and 30 minutes after taking the oath of office. After a week of revelations, resignations, and investigations, President Trump must be desperate for something positive. ...
  • Trump’s First Month “I don’t think there’s ever been a president elected who in this short period of time has done what we’ve done,” declared President Donald Trump in his news conference last week. That statement would be true if he was referring to the unprecedented confusion that has plagued the Trump administration during its first month.   So ...
  • Beyoncé Spotlight – #BlackHistoryMonth Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, better known as Beyoncé, is perhaps the most famous American singer and songwriter in modern pop music. The superstar rose to fame as the centerpiece of the female supergroup Destiny’s Child in the 1990’s.

  • Milo Yiannopoulos On Pedophilia And ‘This Arbitrary And Oppressive Idea Of Consent’ Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos says sex between adult men and 13 year-old boys is OK as long as the boy’s sexual organs are “mature.” He would also like to thank a certain Catholic priest for teaching him to “give such good head” when Yiannopoulos was a child. All documented on a new video from the ...
  • Michael Flynn’s Sacking Alters The Course Of Trump’s NATO Policy The Trump administration seems to be reassuring European countries that a more rational attitude by the U.S. toward NATO is on the horizon after Trump himself described the trans-Atlantic alliance as obsolete. Europeans are also reassured by developments that have shone a more scrutinizing and politically realistic light on US-Russian relations. The two issues are linked ...
  • We Are Not Fake News; We Are Not The Enemy When I see or hear the phrase, “Fake News,” written or uttered by President Trump or his Fakers who seek to undermine the nation’s confidence in the news media and the men and women of the press, my anger rises to levels I’d really rather not have to deal with… and yet, it rises. From ...
  • News Roundup for February 20, 2017 Hopefully you’re used to this by now as it doesn’t look like today will be any better than last week. 1. During a rally in Florida on Saturday night, President Trump cited a fake terrorist attack in Sweden. Once he was caught spreading falsehoods he blamed it on the television. What in the fuck is going ...
  • Help! I Think My Dog Is Supporting The Alt-Right I’m saddened, but I can’t say I’m surprised. It was only a matter of time before someone in my own network found comfort in this despicable movement. I just didn’t think it would happen under my own roof. Or should I say “ruff”? That’s right, in case you missed that incredible joke, I’m referring to my ...
  • Trump’s Allegiance To Russia Begins With The Oil Industry This article was co-written with Kert Davies Any analysis of Russiagate, and the fateful phone calls between Michael Flynn and Russia’s ambassador to the United States, must address the critical fact that U.S. sanctions on Russia are severely damaging Vladimir Putin’s economic power.
