While we were discussing the degree to which Hitler showed “restraint,” the intelligence community kept moving forward against Page, Manafort and Trump, setting the groundwork for impeachment

While we were all occupied over the past 24 hours, discussing White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s absolutely indefensible comment about how Hitler showed “restraint” by never using chemical weapons agains his fellow human beings, when we know for a fact that the Nazis, at the height of the Holocaust, were murdering over 6,000 Jews […]

Today in Treason… Representative Adam Schiff lays out the evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians, and FBI Director Comey confirms that an active investigation is underway

I wouldn’t say there were any real bombshells today, as FBI Director James Comey and NSA head Michael Rogers testified before the members of the House Intelligence Committee about Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election, but it was nice to hear both men say definitively that Trump essentially lied when he said that his […]

Trump says he’ll ferret out those in the intelligence community responsible for the leaks tying his administration to Russia. In response, the intelligence community says that he’ll die behind bars.

Stephan Miller goes full authoritarian, declares that Trump’s national security directives “will not be questioned”

How is it that I didn’t really know about Stephen Miller until today? I feel so cheated. It’s like that day, back in high school, when I heard the Ramones for the first time and thought, “The last sixteen years of my life has been a fucking waste.” Seriously, I can’t believe I’ve been wasting […]
