Today's Headline for Every Major Media Outlet Should Have Been Senator Tim Kaine Tried to Reopen...

the government by bringing a funding bill up for a vote and Mitch McConnell objected, and shut him down. "I really don't care do u" appears to be the slogan for more than just Melania

I Wish Al Franken Had Been in the Senate Today to Question William Barr

I think Franken would have held Barr’s feet to the fire in his unique way.

Could the Bombshell NYT Article be Connected to the Upcoming Hearing of "Pardon Everyone" Bob Barr?

Barr was AG during the Iran Contra scandal and encouraged president Bush to pardon everyone who was connected with those crimes. Now Barr is looking at being confirmed as AG, again. He will likely give Trump similar advice—pardon everyone. Given his history and bold lobbying directly to Trump for the AG position, would Barr sabotage the Mueller investigation? The answer seems clear.

This goes far beyond the Electoral College

Granted, the Elector College needs to be addressed as it was designed for anti-democratic purposes and has given us two recent presidents who lost the popular vote. In the meantime, there is a more immediate problem that needs to be dealt with—what to do about all of the illegitimate appointments and rules that pervade our government.

Trump is an Illegitimate President Due to a Conspiracy with a Hostile Foreign Power

As the evidence continues to be revealed, we need to keep in mind this makes all of Trump’s appointments and all of his nominations for appointments illegitimate. It also makes all of their collective decisions and rules illegitimate. This goes far beyond a Constitutional crisis. What are the solutions that I believe go far beyond impeachment of Trump? Robert Reich has suggested an annulment. What would that look like? We are in uncharted territory and new solutions are called for. Otherwise, I believe America is over and done.

All of the Broadcast Networks Gave Trump Free Air Time to Raise Money for His Re-election Campaign

They were all suckered.

Paul Krugman: The G.O.P. Goes Full Authoritarian

In a recent op-ed posting, Paul Krugman succinctly states how the GOP has undermined voting rights, co-opted the mainstream media and rigged elections to ensure they don't lose and retain a supermajority even when they do. It's shocking to see how the party of Lincoln has morphed into the party of authoritarianism. They have become an enormous threat to the future of our democracy.

Whether or Not He Helped Mueller, Mike Flynn is a Traitor Who Deserves to Be Vilified for Life

Especially, given his military service and the oaths he took to defend our country, Flynn's betrayal of our country for a buck is all the more treacherous. He deserves to live under a rock, in disgrace, for the rest of his days.

Has Anyone Noticed How the GOP Appears to Exhibit Many Symptoms of NPD?

It's not just Trump who is a malignant narcissist. The entire GOP appears to lack empathy, takes advantage of others to get what they want, has a grandiose sense of entitlement, and on down the list of NPD symptoms. Their toxicity and scorched earth tactics have contaminated our entire political process and along with it, our country. Thankfully, we made enormous progress this past November with the Big Blue Wave. Voting them entirely out of office looks like the only recourse for our country's survival.

While Trump is Melting Down on Twitter Where is Pence Hiding?

He apparently has no concern for the good of the country when he is MIA at a time like this.
