Flynn pleads guilty

It was almost two years ago that Donald Trump’s future national security adviser Michael Flynn and future 2016 Green party candidate for president Jill Stein joined Vladimir Putin in Moscow to celebrate the Russian propaganda outlet RT. Trump reportedly considered choosing Flynn as his 2016 running mate and Flynn led chants of “Lock her [i.e., […]

Santa Rosa after the Tubbs Fire

Cross-posted from Ordinary Times As coffee brewed in the kitchen, I took to my shower with the enthusiasm only a commuter at 4 AM can muster, mentally coaching myself for the week ahead. It was a rather warm week, so I was stunned that neighbors appeared to be running their fireplaces; the unmistakable smell of […]

More Anti-Semitism at Bay Area Schools

I noted the growing issues with anti-Semitism at public schools in the infamously left-wing California Bay Area a few months back and recent examples continue to bubble to the surface. According to Algemeiner, the Alameda School District has routinely ignored anti-Semitic language directed at Jewish students. In Alameda, California, middle and elementary schools have been […]

Cracks in the Trump Electoral Strategy

Tuesday was a good night for Democrats and a bad one for Trump. Jonathan Martin writes: Voters delivered their first forceful rebuke of President Trump and his party on Tuesday night, with Democrats exploiting Mr. Trump’s deep unpopularity to capture the governorships in Virginia and New Jersey and make significant inroads into suburban communities that […]

“Fake news” gets real

“Russia is our friend”

Less than two months after the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, Virginia, by a white supremacist, a few dozen neo-Nazis gathered in the city for another tiki torch-lit demonstration, with (again) the ostensible purpose of protecting Confederate monuments. The crowd chanted “You will not replace us.” No word if anyone replaced “You” with “Jews,” […]

Now Las Vegas

Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, Orlando, now this. It’s still not clear what was behind the madness of the shooter who killed at least 50 people and wounded hundreds more, or (among other questions) how he managed to transport 10 rifles to his hotel room without anyone noticing or calling the police, or if he had […]

And so…

While millions of Americans face months of utter misery and health crises without electric power or reliable supplies of fresh water, President Trump focuses his (and the media’s) attention on what’s really important: African-American professional athletes who kneel in protest during the National Anthem. Speaking Friday at a rally for a candidate for US Senate […]

And now, Irma

Best wishes to everyone in the path of yet another “unprecedented” storm barreling toward the US– Hurricane Irma, which is on course to strike the Gulf Coast of Florida Sunday morning. In one of the biggest evacuations ever ordered in the U.S., about 6.3 million people in Florida — more than one-quarter of the state’s […]
