Trump and the FBI: Both Sides Need to Cease and Desist

On Saturday, former FBI counter-terrorism analyst, Phil Mudd, went on CNN to say that the FBI is “ticked” and that “we’re going to win.” Mudd was referring to the release of what has become known as the Nunes Memo which was released over the objections of the FBI and the Justice Department. The memo reported that the FBI obtained a warrant for former-Trump aid Carter Page and that the warrant would not have been possible without the infamous Steele Dossier.  The Steele Dossier was put together by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele at the behest of Fusion GPS, which was conducting...

The Grammys Show How Little the Entertainment Industry Has Changed

Not even a month ago, Hollywood made it clear that at the Golden Globes that the time for sexual misconduct within the film industry was over. Hollywood cared so much about women that they wore all black and honored Tonya Harding to prove it. This past Sunday saw another round of hypocritical, self-congratulatory celebrity back-patting, this time at the Grammys in New York. As with the Golden Globes, the Grammys revealed just how hypocritical the entertainment industry still is. Reading Between The [Head]Lines As part of their campaign to show their anti-Trump credentials, various celebrities took turns reading excerpts from Michael Wolff’s Fire and...

Tired of Government Shutdowns? Fix the Budgetary Process

The federal government shutdown at midnight last Saturday and reopened Monday after Senate Democrats capitulated by allowing the Continuing Resolution to pass without any concessions from Republicans on DACA.  Sure, it was not anything like the nearly 600 days of horse trading that went on in Belgium from June 2010-December 2011, but most people find government shutdowns due to continual brinkmanship, to be exhausting. There are plenty of problems with the way Congress legislates in this day in age. One such problem is the inane Congressional practice of passing a continuing resolution, also known as a CR.  The way...

Immigration: The Problem of the Nation of Origin

President Trump’s use of the word “sh*thole” to describe Haiti and certain African nations has produced many emotions. For some, to describe a country as a “sh*thole” is racist.  Disparaging a country is equivalent to disparaging the people of that country.  Demeaning Haiti is said to be the same as demeaning Haitians.  Trump’s comments that he would prefer immigrants from Norway only serve as evidence that he is a racist as Norwegians are mostly white. For others, they concede that the United States is a far better place to live than Haiti or various African countries, but argue that...

Abusing the 25th Amendment

Donald Trump’s greatest political skill is his ability to cause his opponents to be even crazier than he is. The best example of this can be seen through those who have seriously considered invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. “Unable” to Serve The 25th Amendment dictates rules for succession should a president die or become unable to serve. The belief that this is even a valid suggestion has spread surprisingly far. Just last week, a Yale psychiatrist briefed Democratic members of Congress on Trump’s mental health. Even conservative mainstay Bill Kristol has piled on. People who identify as members of the “loyal opposition” seem to honestly...
