In the Trump era, time runs faster. That can be a good or bad thing. The sooner Trump’s four years are over will be a massive relief to most Americans and people around the world. However, as days and weeks speed by, many events that would haunt a politician to his grave are too quickly forgotten.

Oligarchs despise peace and shared prosperity. They know that they can only monopolize power if the majority is divided and busy at each other’s throats. The viciousness of partisanship in America as the oligarchy seized power is not a coincidence, it’s a key part of the plan.

“Of course this isn’t approving of slavery! It simply allows those who have to pay the expenses of slavery to deduct those costs, it doesn’t mean we’re giving them a gold star to encourage them to continue, we’re just giving them a great deal of money,” Graham explained as he looked at his shoes.

Is it just coincidence that Russia’s strategy to undermine democracy during the election was in sync with Trump’s?

In a way, much of America seems to be just stunned, standing in the middle of a house where an orange-faced arsonist is pouring gasoline everywhere and threatening to drop the (Nazi) torch he’s carrying if he gets mad enough.

Anti-Trump Film Festival

In the pursuit of an antidote and counter-programming to the daily ugliness from Trump, we introduce The Anti-Trump Film Festival, presenting clips from a variety of films that confront the Trumpesque themes of racism, oppression, corruption, etc. and affirm the traits that are best in human beings.

Confederate Monuments Protest

Trump’s begrudging statement today about the horrifying events in Charlottesville was delivered stiffly like a disinterested 5th grader reading out loud to his class, with none of the emotion and vehemence of his attacks on the press, Nordstrom and Kathy Griffin.

Trump Rally

Trump’s success has been based on the cult of personality and while he’s been right that cultists can’t be convinced by reason out of believing in their cult leader, they can grow discouraged when The Promised Land that cult leader promised only he could deliver (and only for them, “the believers”), doesn’t come.

Republicans have so far ignored what Americans want, time will tell if they’ve grown so desperate, they may consider representing the wishes of their constituents.

trump wall off

Obliviously, in his pursuit to keep conning his supporters to stay behind him, Trump has been building a “big beautiful” wall between himself and the majority of Americans since he was inaugurated and it’s only getting taller.

An attempted crime is still an effort to commit a crime…which is a crime. If bank robbers failed in a heist, if terrorists failed in an attack, if a rapist failed in a rape attempt…are they all innocent because they didn’t succeed at the intended crime?

Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn

The House’s and Senate’s so-called “health care” bills are transparent tools of class warfare, they are defined by the Congressional Budget Office as ripping away healthcare from 22 million to 24 million Americans to deliver hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans.

Trump witch

“I’m not a witch! There are reasons why I can’t float or be seen in a mirror, believe me! I just don’t want to, If I wanted to, I could. But I want to tell all those witch hunters at the FBI something, you like not being a toad? Ask yourselves that, that’s all I’m gonna say,” Trump smirked before transforming into a weasel then becoming irritated because no one noticed.

A new MSM motto may be adapted from an old cliche (that G.W. Bush is famous for messing up), “Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, works for me if our ratings go up!”

Trump Impeach

All of the clumsy machinations Trump has brought with him as his only skills have already, in less than four months, led to his committing acts that are leading even Republicans to accept the possibility of his eventual impeachment.
