Claiming a 'national emergency' to justify building a $5-billion wall: At Last! A Workable Reason to Impeach the MF Trying to impeach Trump for doing what he said he would do will not work, but in the case of walling off Mexico, it's all based on a racist lie, and if he tries to bypass Congress to fund it at $5 billion, it's a Constitutional crime that even conservatives should rise up against, writes TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff.

Reagan, Clinton and Tip O'Neill were retirement thieves: Demand an End to the Taxation of Social Security Benefits Social Security has been badly cut for many elderly and disabled by the 'reform' for taxing benefits introduced first in '83 by Reagan and Congressional Democrats and then by President Clinton. It's time to fix that by ending taxation of benefits, the way FDR set the program up. Basta! writes ThisCantBeHappening! journalist Dave Lindorff

Scare-Mongering is the Only Thing Trump and Republicans Have Got The right-wing media and Donald Trump are making a crazy scare story out of a sad bunch of desperate Honduran refugees, pretending a bunch of poor young men and women and their little kids are about to "invade" America bringing rapists, killers and dangerous disease to our shores, writes TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff. We should be offering them help, not armed troops.

Why are we using machines to vote when they're costly, hackable, break down and don't have a paper trail? Because the media love them since they give instant results, writes TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff. That's as lousy a reason as turning in a story before it's done to beat the competion. We need paper ballots for honest elections.

Not all bad as 'boofing' Brett sullies SOTUS: Kavanaugh on the High Court will be a Source of Ridicule If we're going to have 5 Trogs on SOTUS, at least it's good to have another, along with Thomas, who is an object of ridicule, Boofing Bart fills that role well and will help degrade the conservative court and its rulings, writes TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff, so start wailing on him.
