The Three Choices When it Comes to Trump This coming November 6, 34 senate seats, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, and 36 governorships will be up for election or re-election. Support primary candidates who will resist Trump. Mobilize to get out the vote. Organize so that November 6 becomes a total repudiation of Donald Trump and all he stands for.

The Real Meaning of America We are not a race. We are not a creed. We are a conviction -- that all people are created equal, that people should be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin, and that government should be of the people, by the people, and for the people. Yet the common good seems to have disappeared. The phrase is rarely uttered today, not even by commencement speakers and politicians.

Trump's Big Buyback Bamboozle Buybacks used to be illegal. The Securities and Exchange considered them unlawful means of manipulating stock prices, in violation of the Securities Acts of 1933 and 1934. But under Ronald Reagan, who rhapsodized about the "magic of the market," the SEC legalized buybacks. After that, buybacks took off.

Trump's Divide-and-Conquer Strategy Trump has forced all of us to take sides, and to despise those on the other. There's no middle ground. The Republican Party used to stand for fiscal responsibility, state's rights, free trade, and a hard line against Russian aggression. Now it just stands for Trump.

20 broken promises of Donald Trump Trump said he'd use his business experience to whip the White House into shape.

The Next Big Fight Fresh off passing massive tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy, Trump and congressional Republicans want to use the deficit they've created to justify huge cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Medicaid is also a vital lifeline for America's elderly and the poor. Yet the Trump administration has already started whittling it away by encouraging states to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients.

Straight Talk About the Shithole President Normal presidents may exaggerate; some occasionally lie. But Trump has taken lying to an entirely new level. He lies like other people breath. Almost nothing that comes out of his mouth can assumed to be true. For Trump, lying is part of his overall strategy, his MO, and his pathology. Not to call them lies, or to deem him a liar, is itself misleading.

He conned 62,979,879 Americans to vote for him in November 2016 by getting them to believe his lies about Mexicans, Muslims, African-Americans, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and all the "wonderful," "beautiful" things he'd do for the people who'd support him.

The Triumph of the Oligarchs By passing the tax plan, Republican donors will save billions -- paying a lower top tax rate, doubling the amount their heirs can receive tax-free, and treating themselves as "pass-through" businesses able to deduct 20 percent of their income (effectively allowing Trump to cut his tax rate in half, if and when he pays taxes).

Why Making American Corporations More Competitive Doesn't Help Most Americans Most American corporations -- especially big ones that would get most of the planned corporate tax cuts -- have no particular allegiance to America. Their only allegiance is to their shareholders. So restoring their "competitive edge" has little or nothing to do with helping American workers.

Fools or Knaves? There are two kinds of liars -- fools and knaves. Fools lie because they don't know the truth. Knaves lie because they intend to mislead. Trump is both, because he doesn't even care enough about the truth to find out what it is. He'll say whatever he thinks will get people to believe what he wants them to believe.

Patriotism, Taxes, and Trump A slew of analyses show that the GOP plan will raise taxes on many middle-class families. It will also require cuts in government programs that middle and lower-income Americans depend on, such as Medicare and Medicaid. And the plan will almost certainly explode the national debt, eventually causing many middle class and poor families to pay higher interest.

A Year Without a President A president who's governing doesn't leave the top departments and agencies empty for almost a year. He doesn't publicly tell his Secretary of State he's wasting time trying to open relations with North Korea. Any president with the slightest interest in governing would already know and approve of what his Secretary of State was doing. He doesn't fire half his key White House staff in the first nine months, creating chaos.

Trump's obvious aim was to deflect attention from special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of his campaign, and of the indictments issued against his campaign aides.

Trump's Trojan Horse Tax Cut The goal of Trump and the Republican leaders is to pull off a giant redistribution of over $1 trillion from the middle-class, working-class, and poor to the rich, who are already richer than ever. Republicans have just passed a budget that would cut nearly $1.5 trillion from Medicare and Medicaid to pay for these tax cuts.

If corporate taxes are cut, you will have to pay even more in taxes in order to make up the difference. A corporate tax cut is the wrong solution to the wrong problem. We need higher corporate taxes, not lower.

All they've come up with so far is a bunch of platitudes about how nice it would be to cut taxes, simplify the tax code, and spur economic growth.

The reason it's a problem is it's growing faster than the economy is growing, so it's on the way to becoming larger and larger in proportion. This is what we ought to be focusing on. Fighting over whether or not to raise the debt ceiling is a meaningless and dangerous distraction. So abolish it.
