How Kamala Harris could become Trump’s vice president

Here’s how it could happen in theory. The Hill thinks Florida Sen. Marco Rubio may be Trump’s VP pick (story here). Let’s say Florida’s electoral votes decide a close election. The 12th Amendment would allow its electors to vote for only one person from their state. So if they vote for[...]

Should a crazy person be president?

Think I’m being rhetorical, eh? Listen, don’t take my word for anything. This is from the horse’s mouth: “If you’re an adviser to him, your job is to help him at the margins,” said one Trump confidante. “To talk him out of doing crazy things.” (For context, go here, a P[...]

Biden’s real speeches, Trump’s fake crowds (video)

Who’s really ahead. In the last real poll, Biden was by 7 million votes. The next poll that actually counts is November 5, 2024. In the runup, Biden is going around acting presidential (e.g., paying tribute to veterans in D-Day speeches), while Trump fakes crowd sizes and talks about sharks an[...]

Trump told a Las Vegas rally crowd on Sunday, June 9, 2024, that if he’s on a sinking electric boat he’d rather be electrocuted than eaten by sharks. This video isn’t doctored; he really said this. I checked, and you can, too: Newsmax has the entire speech here; this segment begins[...]

Voting fraud found in 2024 election!

GOP lawyers and operatives have found voting fraud in Georgia’s 2024 presidential election months before the election. Of course, like all other GOP voting fraud claims, it’s fabricated. Rolling Stone says, “Lawyers close to Trump are already preparing … to claim fraud in Ge[...]

White House or Big House?

I recall there were predictions that if Trump lost the 2020 election, he would “spend the rest of his life in court.” This could explain his desperation to overturn that election, and also why he’s running again in 2024. After all, Trump isn’t known for being motivated by ide[...]

Tomorrow marks D-Day, and we’ve learned nothing

June 6, 2024, marks the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings. We’re now four generations removed from that fateful day, and only a handful of its veterans are still alive to remind us of the lessons America should learn from that war. Before World War 2, America was isolationist, and caught [...]

Tulsi Gabbard is running for vice president

Wikipedia says (here) that “Greg Gutfeld, the host of Gutfeld! on Fox News, predicted that Gabbard would be chosen as Trump’s running mate.” Asked about it, Gabbard said she “would be honored to serve,” and in March 2024, “Gabbard was cited by Trump as one of h[...]

All these chickens are under arrest!

The Libertarians held their 2024 nominating convention in Washington D.C. on Saturday, May 26, 2024. They invited Biden, Trump, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., but only Trump and Kennedy showed up.

Biden or Trump, some choice

The 2024 polls show most Americans prefer [x] neither of the above. But presidents don’t need to be popular, and usually aren’t. JFK’s popularity was a big thing in its time because popular presidents are rare. There are three important considerations in choosing a president and po[...]
