The Resistance Pleads the Twenty Fifth

Posted by AllardK on February 21, 2017 at 12:34 PM

As an approximate equivalent of Godwin's Law (the longer any online chat, the more likely an analogy/accusation involving Hitler will come up), political conspiracy theory could provide, say, a Dealey Plaza Maxim:

The longer you attack your opponent, whether as fascist or not, the more likely he/she will somehow be linked to JFK's assassination.

Flynn Got Too Close to the Iran Deal, not to Russia

Posted by AllardK on February 15, 2017 at 4:19 PM

What is Ben Rhodes up to? Obama's former deputy National Security Adviser is still hard at work, according to a very troubling story in the Washington Free Beacon. Mr. Echo Chamber himself has not yet unplugged his evil genius machine and seems to have been one of the organizing forces behind the intel community's character assassination of Mike Flynn. And if you believe some commentators, Flynn was just the appetizer. They're trying to bring down far bigger game.

Flynn Was Wrong to Deny - but Who Leaked?

Posted by AllardK on February 14, 2017 at 5:20 PM

The cover up is usually worse than the original offense. That's the old adage they're slapping on Mike Flynn's apparent sending out of Vice President Pence to cover for him. Based on Flynn's denials over a phone call with the Russian ambassador a short while after Obama slapped sanctions on Russia. And yes, if Flynn is gone by the time you read this, it will be because of what he did to the Vice President. Not because of the phone call itself.

President Trump's Moral Relativism on Putin Is Wrong

Posted by AllardK on February 8, 2017 at 5:45 PM

There is an enormous amount of conventional wisdom, dear to the elites in Washington and in major urban centers on both coasts, that President Trump is, and will be, battling against. Good for him.

Putin's lack of character and integrity is not, and should not be, one of those things.

Senators Collins and Murkowski Betray Betsy DeVos

Posted by AllardK on February 3, 2017 at 4:25 PM

This Friday, before the dawn's early light, the Senate voted to end debate and move to a final vote, scheduled for next week, on Betsy DeVos, the nominee for Secretary of Education. She is far from clear, however, on the path to obtaining a well deserved Cabinet position.

President Trump Vs. the Gang on the Hill

Posted by AllardK on January 27, 2017 at 7:31 PM

Now that President Trump has come barreling out of the gate, and has profoundly dismayed and shocked the Washington elite and the media, by actually doing what he said he would do, who are his most dangerous opponents? How about proceeding by elimination.

Pipelines and Jobs Are So 80's

Posted by AllardK on January 25, 2017 at 4:24 PM

If you're Tiernan Sittenfeld - the chief lobbyist at the League of Conservation Voters - then you're really mad at President Trump this Tuesday for signing two executive orders that put the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipeline projects back on track to be approved. For Tiernan, pipelines are dirty and dangerous and the stuff they move should, of course, be left in the ground.

Weaponizing Special Needs Kids Against Betsy DeVos

Posted by AllardK on January 19, 2017 at 7:17 PM

It's not just that Betsy DeVos has not been a card-carrying member of the teacher's union, nor a long-entrenched education bureaucrat. It's not just that, yes, she is wealthy - and a philanthropist for causes the left oppose. It's not just that she does not hide her faith under a bushel.

Can Civil Rights Icons Suffer From TDS?

Posted by AllardK on January 17, 2017 at 11:02 PM

Who carries the legacy of Martin Luther King? His own wife and son? Or John Lewis? As this year's MLK Day comes and goes, the question is not just topical. It's not just about the peaceful transition of power, but whether Donald Trump will be accepted as the freely elected President of the United States of America, by those on the left who still cannot come to terms with his victory last November.

The Real Reasons Senator Sessions Is Being Attacked

Posted by AllardK on January 11, 2017 at 11:51 AM

Senator Ted Cruz was brisk and biting in his rhetoric at the confirmation hearings for nominee for Attorney General Senator Jeff Sessions. But the point of his swipes at Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee was that they had remained silent while the Obama administration, over the past 8 years, had tried to do countless end runs around the law. And that administration included the Department of Justice under AG's Holder and then the now-outgoing AG Lynch.

The Smorgasbord Inauguration

Posted by GregB on January 9, 2017 at 3:49 PM

Get ready for the inauguration of the century.

When Donald J. Trump takes the oath to the oval office, it will be a gala that America won't soon forget. The amount of catering and partying prepared for the event will be nationwide. Trump's victory means the Right Wing can now get back to business of starting wars and allowing sociopaths to run roughshod all over American rights. It's all about making big money the caveman way. They're too intellectually challenged to succeed any other way.

Trump Doesn't Trust Intelligence

Posted by GregB on January 5, 2017 at 9:43 PM

Well, that's something many people would agree with giving his public antics, but Donald Trump is once again bucking the system by not agreeing with the intelligence communities regarding the hacking that's been going on.
