Progressive Sweeping LIII

It seems like I’m using this format a lot lately. It actually takes a bit more time to post than my regular format. The big reason is because so much of the political news oxygen is being sucked up by the Israel war, and to a much smaller degree by the House fiasco, that many other things are simply not being covered. This is my inadequate attempt at atonement. Continue reading Progressive Sweeping LIII

Just Some Of What’s Going On

American politics is still in such a state that five articles a week are insufficient to cover everything that deserves coverage. Therefore, today will be another of the catch up variety. Continue reading Just Some Of What’s Going On

It will appear in their March 12th edition under the slightly different title, The Man Behind the Dossier. Typical of a New Yorker article it is long and I cannot do justice to it in a few paragraphs; but if you want to save the better part of 2 hours reading time I invite you to explore.     Continue reading Fortunately Credible; Unfortunately Incredible

Maybe It’s Capo Trump

I have compared the Trump administration to an organized criminal enterprise on many occasions. I have gone as far as to call the President “Don Trump”. (That was not used as the familiar form of his first name.) Perhaps I gave him too high of a rank. Let’s explore. Continue reading Maybe It’s Capo Trump
