Posted in Politics

In the wake of the Trump administration’s truly horrific policy of separating immigrant children from their parents, Fox News’s ethno-nationalist in chief Tucker Carlson found a way to attack his favorite target: elitist liberals who are the real culprits in this appalling scandal.

MEMBERS ONLY: The Importance Of Remaining Positive

Posted in Members Only

The realities of the Trump administration’s vicious war on the American public, the environment, and our sense of reality sets in and I can’t help but feel completely hopeless. With the Democrats out of power and the Republican Party controlling every branch of government, it seems there is little that can be done...

Outlasting Trump’s Mental Illness And The Art Of Effective Resistance

Posted in Politics

Andrew Sullivan has perfectly put into words the terrifying predicament the clearly mentally unwell president has put much of the country in: The president believes what he wants to believe, creates a reality that fits his delusions, and then insists, with extraordinary energy and stamina, that his delusions are the truth.

Posted in Politics

A popular meme amongst centrists, libertarians, and moderate conservatives is that there is some sort of real equivalency between the far left and the far right. But as we’re seeing in America and now in parts of Europe, this could not be further from the truth. The political center in numerous Western countries is now shifting dangerously towards the right, making fascism acceptable as an ideology and a force...

No, It Isn’t Liberal Hypocrisy To Ridicule Trump’s North Korea Summit

Posted in Foreign Policy, Politics

The right wing media is in a state of frenzy over criticism leveled at president Trump over the North Korean summit by, well, pretty much everyone. By almost all reasonable accounts, Trump got played by North Korea yesterday after his first face to fact meeting with Kim Jong Un. In conservative cuckoo land however, this is being heralded as the biggest diplomatic victory since Nixon went to China and a...
