Paul Ryan Is Finished, And 2018 Is Looking Good For Progressives



With the Republicans failing to even bring their disastrous Obamacare replacement legislation to a vote, Paul Ryan was effectively silenced on one of the only issues he’s discussed for the last seven years.  This is bad news for Ryan’s future, and even worse news for average Republicans.  But Progressives are already looking to be in great shape headed into the 2018 midterms, and they can capitalize on the GOP’s failures. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

SNL Gets Under Trumps Skin More Than Actual Global Issues

Charles Koch Compares Trumps Muslim Ban To Nazi Germany

Trump Withdraws From TPP, Then Freezes The EPAs Budget



Donald Trump on Monday officially pulled the United States out of the disastrous TPP deal, a move that deserves some praise. But what most people didn’t realize was that, while Trump threw us a bone, his administration also put a freeze on all EPA grants and contracts, effectively stopping all water quality testing, hazardous waste disposal, and other vital programs for the time being. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Hackers Back Up US Climate Data So Trump Cant Delete It



While Donald Trump was being sworn in, hackers managed to get their hands on US climate data and backed it up onto servers housed in Europe. They did this because they feared that Trump would get rid of all this data, and judging from how his transition team deleted all mentions of “climate change” from the White House website, they were absolutely correct. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Nearly 1 Out Of Every 100 Americans Marched On Saturday For Equality



On Saturday, concerned citizens across the country took to the streets to demonstrate against the sexism that had been a hallmark of the Donald Trump campaign. Led by women, these protests marked the single largest day of protest in United States history, and they should serve as a warning to Trump that his anti-female attitude will not be tolerated. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Lawsuit Says Trump Already In Violation Of Constitution, Days After Inauguration



Legal scholars are preparing a lawsuit against Donald Trump over foreign payments that he’s received from his businesses, a direct violation of the US Constitution. Additionally, Trump still hasn’t divested from his businesses, creating an enormous, and illegal, conflict of interest for the man who hasn’t even been president for a full week yet. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Orwell Was Right Kellyanne Conway and Alternative Facts



During an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd this weekend, Trump spokesperson Kellyanne Conway said that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer offered up “alternative facts” about the size of Trump’s inauguration crowds. This is going to be the new normal during the Trump administration, and it highlights a dangerous parallel between America today and George Orwell’s classic Nineteen Eighty Four.
