A Name To Remember

Unless I’m totally misreading the political tea leaves the House of Representatives will impeach Donald Trump in the relatively near future. How or even if he will be removed from office is a much murkier picture at this point. (If I had to bet I’d still bet resignation ala Nixon, but that is far from a sure thing.) There are simply too many players entering and leaving the “stage” for even political junkies, let alone average Americans, to keep track of. If I published five times a day instead of five times a week I still couldn’t cover it all. Today I’d like to discuss a name you need to remember. To date he has been a minor fringe player that has hardly received mention. That will not be the case when the final chapter is written. The name is Brain Benczkowski.

As he entered the room a spontaneous cheer of “BFD, BFD” erupted from the crowd. Just as quickly an “ah, shucks” grin broke out on Biden’s face. Meeting the Vice President was a privilege and today I have the privilege of enshrining him in tellthetruthonthem.com’s   Progressive Hall of Fame. Continue reading The Enshrinement Of Joe Biden

The Enshrinement Of Ted Kennedy

The Progressive Hall of Fame was inspired by the Baseball Hall of Fame. Much like some of its most worthy inductees today’s Progressive Hall of Fame inductee is honored not for his total self, but for his work “on the field”. In his case the field was the floor of the United States Senate. Continue reading The Enshrinement Of Ted Kennedy
