Not to put too fine a point on it, but ‘America First’ was Trump’s campaign slogan and he still uses it now. In this sense, the most charitable interpretation is that he simply doesn’t know the history of these shameful words. If Trump doesn’t know this history, his National Security Council aide, Michael Anton sure […]

There is an old African-American saying: only the truth hurts. This is why Trump is as usual in all kinds of pain. Of course, he’s attacking the messenger: “President Donald Trump attacked the military record of Sen. Richard Blumenthal Thursday morning, suggesting that the Connecticut lawmaker misrepresented his conversation with Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch […]
For starters there is already a website committed to just this. https://impeachdonaldtrumpnow.org/ An interesting article in the Washington Post compares Trump to Andrew Johnson. But at the end Charles Lane argues that Trump’s position is much stronger than Johnson’s. “But this is where the Trump analogy starts to break down. The Republicans of the 1860s […]
There’s been an attempt by the GOP or some in the media to suggest that somehow strong opposition to Trump is not just futile but harmful. Republicans predict the gambit will backfire and say that Democrats have misread their electorate by drawing more attention to fights they can’t win. “They’re going to create a national […]
President Obama’s former campaign manager pointed this out today. If you are really upset about the Besty DeVos confirmation consider running for your local school board. It's the best way to fight back. — Dan Pfeiffer (@danpfeiffer) February 7, 2017 Matt Yglesias wrote a very important post on Monday that pointed out how much the […]
Clearly he needs to read it. Here's Mitch McConnell's contact info. Start faxing Coretta Scott King's letter to him! Or send him a copy via mail! pic.twitter.com/aZMdDWDGXf — ALT DOJ (@ALT_DOJ) February 8, 2017 With all the concern about Trump’s propensity for authoritarianism, McConnell took a page out of Trump’s book last night in literally […]
Actually taking on Trump is good for just about anyone who does it. It’s vaunted Senator Kirsten Gilibrand to the top of the 2020 Dem Presidential field. http://lastmenandovermen.com/2017/02/07/early-returns-2020-kirsten-gilibrand-everything-right/ But opposing Trump is so much fun you have the British Parliament getting into the act. http://www.vox.com/2017/2/7/14525106/british-parliament-trump-visit Which makes sense: there have been huge anti Trump protests […]
A new weird correlation that Trump is drawing is between Russia and Iran. Allegedly Obama had a ‘double standard’ where he was harder on Iran than on Russia. I don’t know why our relationship with Iran needs to be run up against our relationship to Russia but this is what Trump is now doing. “President […]
Until very recently, I tended to dismiss talk of 2020. As Joe Biden says, it’s’ impossible to know who it will be this early as it all depends on what the mood and desires of the Democratic base and voters are in 2019-2020. A very good friend of mine had been talking up Kirsten Gilibrand […]
That just floors me. So much of what Trump has done has been-oblique-particularly with his Muslim ban that how can you even know that? Doesn’t it depend on what we learn about the events surrounding both the crafting of this shameful ban and the reaction of the Administration to an order by a federal judge? […]
I'm Mike Sax and I'm a first time Congressional candidate for the NY 2nd Congressional District. Like many Americans after the November 8, 2016-a day that truly will live in infamy-I have decided to put my hat into the ring for the first time.
