Brett Kavanaugh farce is proof that justice is dead in America How is it possible that the impeachment of a Supreme Court justice is unthinkable, but a 40-year-run for a man who may have lied under oath to get there, and to hide his past mistreatment of women, is thought to be no big deal?

The Constitution's 3 Ways to Stop a Demagogue Like Trump Haven't Worked. Now What? The question of how to handle an unfit president has taken on a powerful new urgency, as President Trump has unraveled right in front of us. The public meltdowns are getting worse and worse by that day. And that's only what we see.

Can Democrats grow a spine before American democracy collapses in a limp, lifeless heap? Bullied by McConnell, the Trumpists, and their allies to pass a harsh Senate bill before the July 4 break or be called a bunch of bad names, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her moderate clique of House Democratic leaders caved faster than the epicenter of a Southern California earthquake.

Mitch McConnell's democracy-crushing smirk is why just getting rid of Trump isn't enough Mitch McConnell's amoral political cynicism has been barely concealed (if at all) ever since the dawn of the Obama presidency, when he declared the goal of what was once known, years ago, as "the world's greatest deliberative body" was no longer to pass laws but to deny Obama a second term.

Climate denier Trump can't handle the truth about why Central Americans flock to U.S. President Trump doesn't understand a lot of things, even as he enters his 28th month in charge of the massive bureaucratic battleship that is the U.S. government. But no issue has flummoxed our rage-prone 45th president more than the rise in unauthorized crossings at the U.S.-Mexico border -- even after promising his xenophobic base that his harsh immigration crackdown would make America great again.

Stop blaming millennials for not voting. Blame America's screwed-up system -- and fix it! yell at Demos, and then yell 100 times louder at the Republican apparatchiks like Georgia's Brian Kemp or Kansas' Kris Kobach who've tried to build their careers by standing in front of the polling place door. But don't yell at millennials, who are tomorrow's enthusiastic voters. Unless we grown-ups keep screwing things up.

With lie-filled "nationalist" war on caravan, transgender people, Trump moves U.S. toward tyranny To hold his right-wing base together and drive them to the polls, Trump's weaponry includes such diverse elements as ... fear. Actually, that's pretty much the only element he's got -- fear -- and so he is turning up the volume to deafening levels.

She Warned America That Russia Hacked Our Voting Rolls. Why Is She In Jail? If America wants to emerge from the current quagmire, we need a system that will encourage responsible truth-tellers, not deprive them of their liberty. Those things aren't going to happen with a president who's at war with the First Amendment or a Congress brainwashed to do his bidding.

It's time for a general strike, because Trump treason demands a brave response The American people are going to have to kick things up a notch, in a hurry. It's time to begin the planning for a general strike -- perhaps right after Labor Day, when school is back in session and vacation season is over -- that would show our ability to shut down the American economy while this unfit and arguably treasonous president insists on clinging to power.

"Did Climate Change Kill ... People in Ellicott City?" Halting fracking in Pennsylvania is seen as a radical idea, and politically impossible. This despite that fact that the states immediately to our north and south -- New York and Maryland -- have managed to do exactly that. Maybe it's time for Pennsylvania to stop focusing so much on whether we can afford to stop drilling, and start asking how many more events like Ellicott City will it take to begin understanding reality.

How the chaos of 1968 set the stage for a President Donald Trump The so-called coded "dog whistles" on welfare fraud or crime that Republicans had used to make racial appeals in the 1980s became a bullhorn in the tiny hands of The Donald, who screamed about Mexican rapists and "The Wall" and won primary after primary.

How the Trump family sold U.S. foreign policy to the highest bidder Trump's dealings with the Saudis and UAE is the puzzle piece that finally brings the big picture into focus. What is beginning to take shape is the outlines of a scandal that threatens to be worse than Watergate on a massive scale, that would make Richard Nixon's crimes truly seem like "a third-rate burglary" in comparison.

Michael Cohen and Donald Trump take American graft to the Bada Bing club Pay-to-pay politics is nothing new in America, and in fact our lawmakers and judges have worked hard to ensure that much of it is legal. Still, there's something especially crass and unseemly about the way Team Trump does it. Big cash payments to an unskilled and sometimes thuggish "fixer" so close to the president himself. Welcome to the Bada Bing's new location on K Street.

Mitch McConnell gets his own chapter in the story of America's dying democracy. And it's devastating The fire alarms for democracy are clanging all across America. The notion that a president can arbitrarily fire the prosecutor looking at possible criminality in that president's campaign is the power reserved for a dictator, not the leader of a democratic republic.

What's a guy gotta do to get impeached in Trump's out-of-control America? The Emoluments Clause of the Constitution spelled out in plain old English that presidents are barred from profiting in their dealings with foreign powers. Trump's refusal to divest his global business interests while making life-or-death foreign policy decisions is a clear-cut case of the short-fingered vulgarian in the White House once again flipping the bird to constitutional law and democratic principles.

America pays steep price for ignoring crimes of George W. Bush era It was the 20th century philosopher George Santayana who said that "those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it," but even Santayana would likely be stunned at both the speed and the relish with which a 21st century United States is doing exactly that. At least this is one way in which America truly is exceptional.

Vulture hedge-fund capitalism still devouring U.S. jobs. Will we ever do something? The real reason that Toys R Us has failed is (wait for it) vulture capitalism, as the chain's Wall Street owners (including Mitt Romney's former employer, Bain Capital) borrowed way too much money to make its 2004 purchase happen, leaving the retailer in a lurch when sales stagnated.

Trump and his teleprompter assure America that the State of the Union is strong. No, really. In the hours before the speech, CNN and other news outlets were reporting that Trump may refuse to give Mueller an interview about alleged campaign collusion with Russia and obstruction of justice, that he might actually fire Mueller, and that the president is about to release a slanted, classified memo aimed at tarnishing the FBI and taking down Mueller's probe.

The one half-true thing Trump said in Times interview was scarier than his two dozen lies This past week -- the totally-devoid-of-actual-news dead zone between Christmas and New Year's -- that the president suddenly, without warning, made himself available for a half hour, without any aides present and with minimal interruption, to New York Times reporter Michael S. Schmidt for a rambling interview that completely dominated the cycle for the next 48 hours. In these crazy times, that seemed like an eternity.
