Things are very, very bad for Donald Trump

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to call his son, Don Jr., now surely the Fredo Trumpleone of America's ruling clan, a "great person who loves his country."

What will it take for Republicans to say enough is enough?

Kudos to Reed Galen - a lifelong Republican, veteran of three presidential campaigns, son of former Republican operative Rich Galen - for articulating the obvious truths that his cowardly party breathren loath to admit.

GOP’s new healthcare slogan: retreat and regret

Given the ongoing inability of Congressional Republicans to agree on a new national health care program, their seven-year long battle cry of "repeal and replace" Obamacare has been largely silenced and amended to "retreat and regret."

Pick a state, any state

So, I am getting ready to walk out of the house Sunday morning for a leisurely bike ride. My wife is sitting in the kitchen, dog in her lap and a cup of coffee in her hand.

Trump loves executive orders even more than Obama

Donald J. Trump has many tools at his disposal. Both houses of Congress. The support of rural America. Friends in high places. His family. A supermodel. Twitter. Fox News. The Russian Federation. A signature scent. And...executive orders. Along with executive determinations, memorandums, proclamations, suggestions, aspersions, insinuations, innuendos and doodles.

Democrats will be tested as Menendez finally stands trial

On April 1, 2015, U.S. Senator Robert Menendez and codefendant Salomon Melgen were indicted on 22 felony counts of fraud, bribery, and related offenses. Now, finally, after over two years of Menendez serving as a member in good standing of the Senate Democratic Caucus while under indictment, the trial is set to begin. A last-ditch attempt for yet another delay was rejected by Judge William Walls and the trial date is Sept. 6, 2017.

World Population Day only growing numbers ahead

Included in the signoff for my emails is reference to the 58 percent decimation of wildlife in just the last four decades, driven largely by loss of habitat due to increasing human demands as world population continues its upward trajectory.

An estate sale and reflecting on a life well lived

By any measure, Mike Niedens – the auctioneer – has faced his share of life challenges. I suppose somewhere near the top would be the 12 months he spent on the frontline in a place called Vietnam. He arrived there as a twenty year old in March, 1968 two weeks after the Tet Offensive, which historians describe as the turning point in the war.

Trump’s media flunky thought ‘He Walked on Water’

With Trump on foreign soil attacking the free and independent press (CNN "has been faking news for a long time," while NBC "is equally bad"), I'm recommending that you read The New Yorker's richly-detailed article about The National Enquirer. It's a cautionary primer on how Trump thinks the press should cover him, and how press lords should behave toward him.

Republicans and Democrats pushing back against Trump

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf hit the nail on the head last week when he refused to play along with the Trump administration's invasive and unwarranted request for unfettered access to his state's voter rolls.
