One Saturday Night In Two Washingtons

Last Saturday night the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner was held in Washington, D.C. Last Saturday night President Donald Trump held a rally in Washington, Michigan. Aside from the cute play on names this juxtaposition tells us a lot. Let’s explore. Continue reading One Saturday Night In Two Washingtons

A Continuing Conversation

Too many articles of late consist of a list of negative observations and complaints about the Trump administration in a futile effort to catch up. It’s like having a continuous conversation with my readers. Today is no different. Let’s explore. Continue reading A Continuing Conversation

“Handout Hannity” The Hypocrite

One of the many political parlor games of late is speculating on why Sean Hannity would have used the legal services of Michael Cohen. Cohen is far from one of New York City’s let alone the nation’s top legal minds. In fact the conventional wisdom is that you only retain Cohen if you want to make a mistress problems disappear. That does not fit Hannity’s reputation. He is not known to cheat on his wife nor are there any credible rumors of sexual harassment in his past.

Being selective in which facts you utilize to reinforce your points is part of the art of political speaking. Selecting your own “facts” is just plain lying. I was among the first to label this administration as an organized criminal enterprise. Now we are starting to hear rumblings that perhaps it should be pursued using RICO laws. Miraculous as it is, one of the main reasons Trump has gotten away with his actions this long is the army of enablers he has either turning a blind eye and deaf ear to his lies or actually coming out attempting to justify them. I’d like to explore some of those actions with you today. Continue reading Lies, Plots And Reinforcers
