I love politics. Unlike many who read into it through an emotional lens, I have dug myself out of that hole, and so should you.

Developing countries have for years been dealing with what is going on now in the land said to be flowing with ‘milk and honey’ — emotional politics.

Never has there been a time in recent memory like this one. The republicans are almost an extension of Trump’s…

McCarthy wasted no time at all and in true McCarthy fashion of turning critical work into a circus, he went ahead and nominated five among which three are active and ardent pushers of the big-lie. The GOP contingent of five was to be led by Indiana Rep. Jim Banks.

The nominees were as follows; Illinois Rep. Rodney Davis, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. Kelly…

After Donald Trump told us all about what he likes to do when popularity polls don’t favor him, CPAC organizers decided to stroke his ego a little bit and conduct one right in the Republican Party backyard by conducting a straw poll at CPAC. The result was nothing short of astounding — I mean expected… 98% of respondents gave Donald Trump a positive approval rating while 70% said they would pick this guy if the 2024 Republican presidential primaries were held today.

Even more disturbing is that 26% said they would choose Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) — A Donald Trump…

So I opened my Medium and started typing.

The Emancipation proclamation came in the form of an executive order issued by President Lincoln, on Jan 1, 1863.

It read;

I found it strange for this right-wing conspiracy theorist to appear to allude that she had little or no knowledge about the Holocaust and as such, greatly benefited from a crash course visit to the Holocaust Museum. …

Literally, anything that is coming out of any Republican quarters these days seems to be a regurgitation of what Donald Trump has said in the past, sometimes verbatim — I’m all for that streamlined party messaging since the outsing of Liz Chaney.
