Trump Attacks John Kasich On Twitter, Adding To The Possibility Of A 2020 Primary Challenge

Posted in Politics

As a general rule, I try to avoid making political predictions. I can’t always resist the urge to do so, and my track record along those lines is about average, especially now that we’ve slipped into an alternate universe in which a tabloid clown, complete with garish clown hair and makeup, is president. Anyway, I’m definitely not predicting that Donald Trump will face one or more primary challengers in...

More Trump Damage And The Rise Of The Unserious Celebrity Candidate

Posted in Politics

“We’ve got serious problems, and we need serious people. And if you want to talk about character, Bob, you’d better come at me with more than a burning flag and a membership card. If you want to talk about character and American values, fine. Just tell me where and when, and I’ll show up. This a time for serious people, Bob, and your fifteen minutes are up.” The American...

MEMBERS ONLY: Staying Home Or Voting Third Party Is Not An Option. Not Now.

Posted in Members Only, Politics

There’s no law or rule preventing third party candidates from running for office. Any office. Indeed, under normal circumstances, third party candidates can force honesty into a race, or they can bring an issue to the forefront, prompting candidates from the two major parties to weigh-in or even adopt the third party position on such an issue. Let me be perfectly clear before third party supporters catapult into the...

Trump Knows Nothing: California Fires Edition

Posted in Politics

I think I know what Donald Trump was babbling about on Sunday regarding the California fires. Before we dig into the tweet, it’s important to highlight that the president doesn’t consider California to be part of his nation. California didn’t cough up a victory for him, partly because (he thinks) California allowed three million undocumented immigrants to vote against him, costing him the state and its 55 electoral votes....

The Axis Of Abnormals: Trump, Infowars And QAnon Will Get More Reporters Killed

Posted in Politics

One of the worst things Donald Trump has done — one of the worst things he’s done as both a candidate and especially as president, has been to demonize the press as “fake news.” Granted, there’s never been a presidential administration of any party that’s enjoyed a love affair with the White House press corps. Trump, however, has co-opted a real thing, the existence of fake news sites, and...

MEMBERS ONLY: Why Trump-Republicans Don’t Want You Or Anyone Else To Vote

Posted in Members Only, Politics

Just about everyone in the Resistance is talking about one thing right now, and it’s not just the latest damage inflicted upon the nation by the clown dictator in the White House. We’re all desperately spreading the word online and elsewhere that voting in the forthcoming election will decide whether democracy-as-we-know-it continues to exist here. Indeed, the get out the vote effort has been underway since 11/9/16, and it’s...

Rudy Giuliani Stupidly Confirms Another June 2016 Trump Tower Meeting About Russia

Posted in Politics

It might be Donald Trump’s new counter-argument against the Mueller investigation or it might not be. With Rudy Giuliani running Trump’s defense on television, who the hell knows. Rudy might just be making this up as he goes, but it looks like Trump and his legal team are saying that collusion is perfectly legal because collusion isn’t a crime. More gaslighting from the Stupid Watergate conspirators. Naturally, those of...

The Trumps Can’t Stop Lying About Economic Growth

Posted in Politics

They say Donald Trump was born on third base while insisting he hit a triple. And so it goes with the economy. Frankly, Biff should be praising Barack Obama every damn day because it’s the strength of the Obama economy that’s propping up Trump’s approval numbers to an artificial 40-ish percent despite his monstrous behavior, his incompetence, his treason and his childish obnoxiousness. Without the Obama economy, Trump would’ve...

MEMBERS ONLY: The Social Media Outrage Machine Claims Another ‘Evildoer’

Posted in Members Only, Politics

Throughout the last 20 years of working on the internet, I’ve accumulated quite an archive of work. Mainly, we’re talking about blog entries, podcasts and a metric ton of cartoons. From 1999 to 2009, I ran an animation studio called “Camp Chaos,” specializing in online “Flash” cartoons including several shorts that gratefully enjoyed viral success. As you can imagine, however, many of those cartoons might be considered obnoxious, distasteful...

Trump Threatens Nuclear War Against Iran, But Still Won’t Threaten Putin (Who’s Attacking Us)

Posted in Politics

Lost in the fire hose of daily Trump news is the basic notion that the president is anything but presidential. Donald Trump continues to behave more like an incontinent mid-level radio or Fox News screecher, abandoning all links to the decorum or decency for which most previous presidents have exemplified. Whether we agreed with those past presidents is one thing, but generally speaking even the most nefarious presidents still...
