Trump’s uncanny knack for hiring only the very best worst people

They were the best of people, they were the worst of people. Trump promised us excellence. “I’m going to surround myself with only the best and most serious people,” he said in a 2016 interview with The Washington Post. “We want top of the line professionals.” Yet, time and time again, we have seen the […]

With Roy Moore’s defeat, we are witnessing the end of the party of family values

The party that said that gay marriage would lead to the normalization of pedophilia is normalizing pedophilia. The party that asked “How can you keep someone like Anthony Weiner in your orbit?” is urging Americans to keep someone like Anthony Weiner in their orbit. The party that routinely accuses Mohammed of being a pedophile is […]

Wikileaks, Alt-Right’s ‘Spirit Cooking’ attack is bogus, last-ditch Clinton witch hunt

As if this election weren’t already strange enough, Hillary Clinton may be spending the last days before the election refuting claims that she is involved in a satanic cult. On Thursday, Wikileaks highlighted an email to John Podesta from his brother, Tony Podesta, in which John Podesta is asked if he is planning to attend a dinner […]

Do we really want Trump to set the tone for the next four years?

Over the past few days, the DNC has largely been about love, unity, and inclusion, whereas the RNC served to stoke fear, anger, and divisiveness. Our children are watching this election. Regardless of what you may think about […]

When your child’s introduction to American politics is Donald Trump

“Dad, who do you think would make a better president: Kanye or Drake?” These words came out of my child’s mouth. Granted, I believe it was somewhat facetious, but this was the moment when I realized that Trump is the turd in America’s presidential punchbowl. It’s ruined. Soiled. There is no going back. My children are […]

Islamophobia: Playing Right Into The Hands Of ISIS

In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, anti-Islamic sentiment is at a fever pitch in America. Since the Paris attacks, there have been more than 37 suspected anti-Islamic hate crimes in the US (compared with an average of 12.6 a month over the past five years). Eleven of those hate crimes […]
