Adam Schiff, the top ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee is optimistic. He thinks the GOP in time will come to see it the Democrats way on Trump-Russia. “Will Republicans Break With Trump Over Russia?” “So says Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, who predicts his GOP colleagues will come […]
Trump came in believing his own hype-that he’s a businessman who will cut through all the bull. What he didn’t get is running a complex government bureaucracy is very different than running the Trump Organization. He’s still shocked to realize that there are coequal branches-the judiciary, the Congress where Dems have managed to slow down […]
This was his telling line in his answer to Chuck Todd on how confident is he of a full and comprehensive investigation of Russia-Trump in the GOP Congress. He said ‘I hope and trust they will. More hope than trust.’ He had a wry smile after adding that second sentence. It didn’t take long for […]

Let alone those of us of ‘dubious whiteness.’ “Leaked Trump tape: ‘You are the special people’ “Exclusive audio shows how Trump lets loose at his clubs — inviting guests to join […]
There is an interesting inverse relationship between how well you do and your attitude towards Donald Trump. In all kinds of endeavors. For instance, Saturday Night Live is doing its best in 20 years-because its been skewering Donald Trump. Same with late night comics. The more they skewer Trump, the better the audience likes it. […]
In this, I agree with Roger Stone. I want the same. I’ve recently revealed that I’m exploring the possibility of challenging GOP NY Congressman Peter King-an Islamophobe who’s in lockstep with Donald Trump and Paul Ryan in taking away Americans’ health insurance.
