Bidenomics Continues to Hit the Poor Hardest

Yesterday, the Federal Reserve announced another increase in interest rates because of ongoing high inflation. This is the third straight increase, matching rate increases not seen for decades.

He Can Make Things Happen With Just His Mind!

Donald Trump, when asked last night by the Fox News host about classified documents seized at his residence:

“There isn’t a process…If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying ‘It’s declassified.’ Even by thinking about it.” (Emphasis added)

There is a man who really needs to consider making more use of his mental health benefits.

Trump Goes Full QAnon Cult

Am I the only one who looks at this picture and thinks “Hunger Games”?

The picture (courtesy of Getty images) is from a rally in Ohio on Saturday where Donald Trump was campaigning for candidates on the ballot in November. After an 8 minute speech, talking mostly about the 2020 election, music began to play in the background and a portion of the crowd raised their hands with one finger raised. The music and song have been identified as “WWG1WGA” after the QAnon slogan, “Where we go one, we go all”.  

There Is No Border Problem For Liberals…Until Illegals Show Up In Their City, Then It Is A Crisis

Muriel Bowser, the Mayor of Washington, D. C. said in response to illegal immigrants being shipped to her city “We are not a border town.”

Bowser was complaining about illegal immigrants showing up unannounced in her city (after being captured and then transported there from the border). You see, Bowser is fine with the immigration situation as long as it does not affect her or her city. The hundreds of thousands of people crossing the border illegally EACH MONTH is only a problem for people at the border.

Trump’s War On Law Enforcement and the Justice Department

In an interview on Thursday, Donald Trump warned that if criminal charges are brought against him that there would be “problems in this country the likes of which perhaps we’ve never seen before.” 

Much like the TV mobster who shakes down people for protection money with “You know this is a dangerous neighborhood. I wouldn’t want anything to happen to your family”, Trump threatens that his blind loyalists will take to the streets if he is charged with a crime, no matter what the outcome of the trial is. Of course, that implies that there are people who will follow him, no matter what and no matter what any evidence shows. And, that they will do so even if they would be appalled and outraged if ‘the other guy’ had kept highly classified nuclear secrets at their house and outside of the required national security procedures and safeguards for handling such information.

How do people just give up thinking and blindly follow someone, no matter what they say or do? How do you wrap our mind around that?

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, senior FBI and DHS officials briefed members of the Senate Judiciary and Homeland Security committees Thursday on the uptick in threats against federal law enforcement in the aftermath of the search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and the seizure of classified information, including ‘special handling’ information and information on nuclear capabilities. 

Oberlin College Must Pay $35.6 M to ‘Racists’

In Nov. 2016, a local Ohio bakery called police on a 17 year old who tried to use a fake ID to buy wine. Two others were arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault after they argued with, and physically assaulted, employees at the bakery.

The three teenagers arrested-Jonathan Aladin, Cecelia Whettston, and Endia J. Lawrence-happened to be Black. Students and professors at nearby Oberlin College began protesting outside the bakery, saying that the owners were racists.

Trump and the GOP (Part 2 of a series)

The Presidency of Donald Trump has transformed the landscape of the Republican Party over the last six years. That is really quite remarkable for a person who just changed his party affiliation in 2009 and was a large donor to as prominent of a Democrat as Hillary Clinton’s US Senate campaign in 2000.

Electric Vehicles And California Dreaming

Last week, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a law that required all new cars to run on electricity or hydrogen by 2035.

Today, California Gov. Gavin Newsom asked all Californians not to charge any electric car because the summer hear was putting a strain on the state’s electrical grid and there would be anticipated outages.
