Open Letter: Dear Nancy Pelosi, it’s time to impeach the President.

Dear House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Ever since the Barr-corrupted release of the Mueller Report, I’ve been hoping and praying you would do the right thing and initiate an impeachment inquiry. But, you did not. Ever since that time, I have placed my trust in your political intuition and experience, but I can no longer do so, for the following reasons: 1)  Trump’s conviction and removal from office by the Senate is NOT the point. Doing the right thing is the point. Trump’s obstruction of justice is flagrant and Mueller’s documentation is clear and convincing. Therefore, impeachment is a Constitutional imperative. 2)  The [...]

Twitter ridicules Eric Trump after Obama tweet.

Eric Trump posted a ( since deleted ) tweet yesterday in an attempt to slam Obama. It didn't work out so well for him.

Open Letter: To my Trump-supporting family.

To my Trump-supporting family, On the morning of November 9, 2016, the America I knew and loved died.  Or rather, I woke that day to discover that it never really existed in the first place.  Let me explain.  I grew up in the Deep South.  I was a flag-waving, gun-shooting, red-blooded American boy.  I said the Pledge of Allegiance every morning in school, got tingles when I heard the national anthem, and fervently accepted that no other country on the planet could ever come close to the grandeur, freedom, and inspiration that the United States of America offered.  We were [...]

Eric Trump spat on by cocktail bar employee in Chicago.

Eric Trump says he was spat on by an employee at the Aviary, an upscale cocktail bar in Chicago, on Tuesday night. The employee was taken into Secret Service custody but was later released.  “It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems,” Trump told Breitbart News. “For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility. When somebody is sick enough to resort to spitting on someone, it just emphasizes a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning.” Breitbart reported that the female employee had approached Eric as he [...]
