DeSantis and Pence vouch for Confederate traitor

Braxton Bragg (photo, left) got a free college education at West Point, at the expense of taxpayers of the United States, then waged war against his benefactors. Although Bragg committed treason (per Const. Art. III, §3), he arguably deserved a medal for incompetence, thereby contributing to the Co[...]

Biden crimes vs. Trump crimes

If I tell an FBI agent somebody told me a “source” has audio recordings of Joe Biden taking a $5 million bribe, the agent will write it down on a form called an FD-1023. Now substitute an unnamed whistleblower who can’t be located for “I” and you’ve got the grand [...]

Nikki Haley says she’ll pardon Trump

Nikki Haley, who’s running for president, says if she’s elected she’ll pardon Trump for his classified documents crimes (see story here). “When you look at a pardon, the issue is less about guilt, and more about what’s good for the country,” Haley said. Right. From that persp[...]

Republicans are outraged Trump is indicted for breaking the law

Trump’s MAGA movement caught many Americans by surprise. They’ve never seen anything like it before. This is the first time anyone has tried to overthrow our democracy. To outsiders, Trump looks like a pied piper leading a crowd of zombies into a never-never land of lies, fantasies, and [...]

Mike Pence’s campaign lies

Mike Pence launched his quixotic campaign for the presidency on Wednesday, June 7, 2023, with a pack of lies. I say “quixotic” because Pence isn’t going to be president. He has no constituency; he’s too rightwing to appeal to Democrats, and Trump Republicans won’t touch[...]

Nikki Haley wants to “save America”

From what? Union wages? Women controlling their own bodies? Queer people? In a townhall on Sunday, June 4, 2023 (read story here), she wouldn’t get specific about abortion. Women voters are entitled to assume she would sign a nationwide ban, because that’s what Republicans are enacting [...]

Biden and the sandbag

Republicans want you to believe Biden is too old for another term. That’s doubtful, but even if true, isn’t a good enough reason to elect any Republican presently in the field. Amusingly, Republicans who question Biden’s mental faculties are complaining he outsmarted them in debt c[...]

Nikki Haley, Confederate sympathizer

Do you want someone steeped in Confederate culture to be president? Now that she’s running for the top job, she’s singing a different tune; but when she was South Carolina’s governor, Nikki Haley didn’t hesitate to pander to “Southern tradition.” I’ll explai[...]

An obscure presidential candidate you should know more about

Larry Elder is running for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. I had to look him up. Wikipedia says (here) he’s a “right-wing political commentator and conservative talk radio host” in Los Angeles. He was on the ballot in California’s 2021 recall election against Gov. Gavin[...]

Twitter crash derails DeSantis’s campaign launch

“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign announcement plans were derailed Wednesday evening by massive technical glitches on Twitter that kept him from declaring his candidacy,” CNBC reported on Wednesday, May 24, 2023 (read story here). “’Servers are straining somewha[...]
