Anthony Barnes, of Boston, Massachusetts, is a left-handed leftist. "When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family. Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world." - Unknown Monk (1100 AD)

Portrait of the Donald as a Sick Man It is practically impossible, if not morally irresponsible, to understate the degree of peril America's democratic institutions and processes face in these months leading to November's mid-term elections stemming from the flagrant illegality of Trump's decision-making and behavior pattern leading up to the January 6 insurrection."-"-"-"-

CALAMITY IN CHIEF: Donald Trump's "Acid Reign" Does Nothing to Enhance the Notion of American Exceptionalism Call it short-sightedness, myopia, tunnel vision, stubborn obliviousness, or maybe just an uniquely America-specific case, the fact is, no matter where you look, the evidence is abundant. In America, history often repeats itself. Not by chance, but by design.

Tanks in Chocolate City Is it at all possible that the Abrams tanks in Washington D.C. during July could ultimately lead to election-year "Missiles of October" over Tehran?

Promise Land 2020 With the conclusion of the Mueller probe roughly coinciding with the start of the U.S. presidential campaign season now is as good a time as any to re-focus on some of trump's reprehensible behavior, reckless domestic and foreign policy decisions, empty claims and, for the purposes and his many broken promises.

Journey of the Hermit Kings Is it foolish to assume that faced with the prospect of a criminal indictment, that maybe running around scaring the holy bejeebers out of everyone by means of thermonuclear-themed political stunts, might be a misuse of a dwindling opportunity by donald trump to legislatively cover his ass.

A Pinocchio Theory It's a bizarre paradox: a puppet that wanted to grow up to be a boy, and a real boy who grew up to become a puppet.

Dead Presidency Donald Trump's presidency is rapidly moving toward life support status. And, at least right now, the same can be said for the American Presidency itself.

The Trump Curse on the GOP The GOP's failure to expunge Donald Trump from their party when they had the chance wasn't just a curse upon themselves; it was a curse upon us all.

The Art of the Impeachment Donald Trump's effort to stymie the investigation of possible collusion between his campaign and the Russians has been marked by one utterly foolish self-incriminating breach of common sense after another, many of which involve James Comey. Now it looks like he might have to pay for them.

A Tale of Two Shots Yes it was indeed quite telling. The force behind donald trump's sneering determination to step forward and aggressively flaunt his status as leader of the West's military alliance was in sharp contrast to the negligible sense of urgency he displayed when presented with the opportunity -- during a time of war -- to step forward to serve in his own country's military.

The Non Factor: A Talking Points Memo Bill O'Reilly finally ran out of both time and mistakes. His were the wrong kind of mistakes. Mistakes involving women. Made at the worst possible time. And so, it became time for the smug, uncontrollably self-righteous "King of Cable" to be banished from the cable kingdom he helped create. From Cable King to Village Idiot. All in one fell swoop.

TRAPPED IN THE CUCKOO'S NEST: Donald Trump's 'Deep State' of Denial It seems remarkable that America has somehow managed to make it through the first 100 days of donald trump's hair-raising "presidency." But now, all layers of speculation about trump's character have been removed. It's fairly well established that expedient mendacity -- lying out of convenience -- is the prevailing focus of any donald trump strategy for handling personal and personal and presidential responsibilities.

Two-and-a-Half Minutes to Midnight: Could J. Edgar Hoover Have Saved the World from Trump? James Comey's e-mail focus had much to do with the success Russian hackers enjoyed in influencing the outcome of the 2016 presidential contest. Comey also apparently had little or no knowledge of rumors that Russia has compromising material on trump. Would any of this have happened if J. Edgar Hoover still ran the FBI?

Donald Trump's Great American Bowel Movement It's been over 40 years since Gerald Ford declared the "long national nightmare" that was the Nixon presidency to be finally over. And now, this: A whole new nightmare. A demagogue has taken over a major political party and founded a profoundly odorous movement. This time, it will be worse than Watergate.

Kitty Porn: The Perils and Possibilities of Donald Trump's Deviant Republicanism A great, glistening fork made of purest silver on Planet Earth has been stuck in it. "It" being Donald Trump's run for the presidency. His allegedly "self-funded" campaign has been killed by a steady barrage of self-inflicted wounds, culminating in the release of taped conversation during which he was exposed as little more than an unregistered, serial sex offender. But let's not rejoice or bury Trump too soon.

Elephant's Graveyard: How Barack Hussein Obama Destroyed the Republican Party It's easy to assign blame to Donald Trump for leading the Republican Party on its death march to political oblivion. But that would be somewhat misleading in that laying the blame solely on Trump would be to overlook the far more significant role that Barack Obama played in bringing about the GOP's impending death.

Death of the Republican Party There is a degree of legitimacy to the angst many Americans feel about this country's "greatness." The concept of Donald Trump as the remedy however, has no basis at all. Just look at what he's doing to the Republican Party! The time has come. In order to save itself, the GOP must destroy itself by way of a forceful, swift, relentless -- and perhaps essentially suicidal -- execution of gutter politics

Trumptopia If the network media had made a more than cursory effort to drill down on Donald Trump's galaxy of character flaws, the running narrative on Trump would more likely reflect the story of a common businessman; a simple dyed-in-the-wool capitalist with a history of failed business ventures who is now marketing xenophobia from behind a veneer of synthetic patriotism for his own personal gain.

Brother Visions; Thelonious Monk; and the New Chaos Theory The doctor is out"... of his mind? Or so it seems sometimes anyway. Looks like the jig is just about up for Dr. Ben Carson. As a physician, Carson's magnificent; a masterpiece at his craft. But as a politician, he's a bit of a charlatan.
