Trump's Legacy: Lies, Death and a Catastrophic Failure Just as Trump got elected on a false narrative that he was a successful businessman, he is seeking reelection on a false claim to having created the greatest economy in history. Instead, he inherited what would become the longest economic expansion and history and has now lost more jobs than any President in history because of his mishandling of the COVID crisis.

The 2019 Unicorn Debates: How Moderators Ignored the Political Realities of 2021 The 2019 Democratic debates have overlooked two overriding issues that will present serious challenges for any incoming Democratic President - the makeup of the Senate and a record $1.034 trillion budget deficit.

The Elephant in the Room that Debate Moderators Ignored: America's $2 Trillion Infrastructure Gap Democratic Presidential debate moderators not only overlooked the record budget deficit but the fact that a new President will face a $2 trillion-dollar infrastructure funding gap. While it may not be as sexy as some of the other issues raised during the debates, how the new President will navigate the budget deficit, the infrastructure deficit and address their agenda is something which Democratic voters need to hear.

Donald Trump - President Zero Sending a misspelled tweet ("covfefe") is excusable. Doing nothing when leadership and action are required is not. For that, Donald J. Trump should forever be known as #PresidentZero.

Raif Badawi and the Myth of Saudi Liberalization While recent Saudi actions such as lifting the ban on women driving suggest liberalization is afoot, the refusal to release jailed blogger Raif Badawi and other actions demonstrates that is not the case.

From the Clinton Wars to the New Shut Down Confederates The 2013 shut down of the government by Tea Party Republicans is not an event that just spontaneously sprung up this year, but rather is the result of over twenty years of actions each building on the next that made this conflict predictable if not inevitable.

Wash Post Columnist's Myopic Call to Repeal the Internet Washington Post columnist Robert Samuelson's call to repeal the Internet is a myopic embrace of Cyber Amishness.

Tragedy in Tucson: A Somber Anniversary's Call to Repudiate Right-Wing Extremism Republicans are trying to have it both ways when it comes to its extremist fringe, expressing displeasure over their most outrageous conduct but stoking the mania that fuels it. The anniversary of the shooting of Gabby Giffords and the alarming rise of Ron Paul, give the party an opportunity for a "Sister Souljah moment" that would allow it to break free from a fringe that is hurting it politically.

Rumble in Little Rhody: Patrick Kennedy Takes On The Bishop And The Church's Moral Myopia What message does it send when the Church will deny communion to a pro-choice official like Patrick Kennedy whose voting record is otherwise consistent with church teaching, but not pro-life officials guided by the gospel of greed or intolerance or even mobsters such as the legendary crime boss Raymond Patriarca who was given a Catholic funeral?

McCain's Reckless Choice Coming after his calls for a gas tax holiday and off-shore drilling and shameless invocation of his POW status to deflect any and all criticism, it is evident that Senator McCain views this campaign not as a debate about the greater direction of the country but as a series of stunts designed to distract voters from the real issues.
