There was absolutely no doubt that even before the ink was dry on Alabama's Medieval era abortion law that the law would wind up in court. Planned Parenthood wasted no time in announcing a legal challenge to the law. It won't be the only challenge.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said no every imaginable way to the legions of Democrats who call for impeaching Trump. Pelosi said no first when a slew of progressive Democrats demanded it immediately after they took back the House. She said it again after the release of the hacked-up Mueller Report.

From the moment in June 2016 that Trump formally declared he was a candidate for President, the hue and cry went up from Democrats and others: Show us your taxes. Three years later and at the start of another presidential election cycle, Trump's taxes are still just as shrouded in secrecy as ever.

There are two schools of thought about possible presumptive Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden. One is that his 2020 presidential candidacy is DOA before he even formally declares. It supposedly is rendered still born by the daily cascade of finger-points at Joe as a serial groper, toucher, hugger,

Trump's never-ending rap of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his pending report as a "witch hunt" is nothing more than PR fluff. This isn't how Trump will gut, water down, or ground the report into the pavement.

Polls have consistently showed that an overwhelming majority of whites oppose reparations for blacks for slavery and the near century of Jim Crow racial suffering afterward. The same polls show that a majority of blacks back reparations. Oppose or support it,
Thursday, February 21, 2019 The Bernie Can't Get the Black Vote Nonsense Continues
It was repeatedly said as fact in 2016 and it's being said again. Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders has a big problem with black voters; namely that he can't get many of them. Like any other political non-truism that poses as a sacred political truism it was nonsense then and it is even more nonsensical now.

Not a day passes without speculation somewhere in the media about when Special Counsel Robert Mueller will releases his report and just what exactly it will say about Trump. T

A handful of House Democrats again will not attend Trump's State of the Union Address. They made it plain that they won't sit through a speech as one declared filled with "lies and deceptions."
This is not a case of fierce partisan politics at work. It's not about listening to Trump discourse on his real and imagined accomplishments in his second year in office. It's would be
(18 comments) Thursday, November 8, 2018 Time for Pelosi to Go
Two things happened within the space of 24 hours that tell much about why expectant House Speaker California Democrat Nancy Pelosi must go. The first were her words. Even before the final 2018 mid-term election results were in confirming the Democrat's retake of the House, Pelosi was offering soothing salve to the GOP. She promised a return to bi-partisan deals with the it.
Sunday, November 4, 2018 The Deadly Peril of White Privilege
Now how do you explain this? Scott Paul Beierle casually strolls into Hot Yoga Tallahassee in Tallahassee, Florida and just as causally blazes away inside and when the smoke clears, two innocents are dead and a score others are wounded. Beierle is not gunned down by police but just as casually murders himself.
Thursday, November 1, 2018 Trump's Willie Horton Moment
"Maybe he will put this Willie Horton on the ticket". Lee Atwater, George Bush Sr's 1988 presidential campaign manager, wasn't being totally facetious when he made this crack to a confidant. Horton was the black convict who escaped from a Massachusetts pen while on a work furlough. While on the lam, Horton raped a Maryland housewife.
Sunday, October 28, 2018 Bowers Demand that All Jews must Die Is No Aberration
Robert Bowers demand that all Jews must die is no aberration. There were plenty of warnings before Bowers murdered eleven persons at the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue that it was only a matter of time before a synagogue would be the target of a hate monster such as Bowers. The signs were ignored or downplayed for several troubling reasons.

Trump talked about peace, harmony and all sides coming together but did not once mention the two words that if ever applied to sending suspected mail bomb packages to leading Democrats. The words are "domestic terrorism." Trump didn't use those words and he was called on the carpet by a few for not using them.

The Clintons are far from dead and forgotten politically. They announced that they are hitting the road on a multi-city tour later this year and through 2019 that will take them through several states. The timing is no accident.

Barring another unforeseen twist or turn in the Kavanaugh saga, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will get his way and there will be some kind of vote on his confirmation. So, if that happens the almost as hotly debated question about Kavanaugh's sexual proclivities, drinking and lies, is what kind of SCOTUS judge he'd be.
