How secession could work

GOP firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene says, “We need a national divorce,” and while her idea of splitting up red and blue states won’t work, it’s not worth another civil war to keep Republicans in the Union. The divorce part is easy; we’re already divorced. Republicans a[...]

If elected, Trump will clean up the mess in Washington D.C.

The city is a mess, he says. So big a mess it’s worthy of presidential time and effort, so he plans to wrest city administration from city officials and run the place himself (read story here). Here are his complaints: “I’m driving into a federal courthouse, and the graffiti all over the p[...]

Why Trump won’t go to jail over the hush money

Biden’s dog receives death threat

“Say hello to Cricket.” It reads like a bloodstained note from a serial killer. Cricket is in doggy heaven, blown to bits with a shotgun in a gravel pit. His killer’s message implies a similar fate for the recipient. After killing her own dog 20 years ago, Kristi Noem is going arou[...]

Is Trump teleporting drugs into people’s bodies?

Ryan Garcia, a professional fighter (bio here), in April 2024 tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs (see story here). Garcia promptly tweeted on Elon Musk’s soapbox, X,  that he was set up. “I’m seen with Trump and now I’m positive for steroids,” Garcia wrote. “[...]
