MEMBERS ONLY: Trump and Pelosi’s Re-Enactment Of Richard III

Posted in Members Only, Politics

In his latest book, Tyrant: Shakespeare on Politics, Pulitzer-Prize winning historian Stephen Greenblatt analyzes the Bard’s most power-hungry characters. The book never mentions Donald Trump by name, but it is easy to see the parallels between our president and the characters Greenblatt writes about, especially Richard III. “He is pathologically narcissistic and supremely arrogant,” writes Greenblatt. “He has a grotesque sense of entitlement, never doubting that he can do...

MEMBERS ONLY: Tucker Carlson Is Spreading Grotesque Lies To Cover Trump’s Crimes

Posted in Members Only, Politics

Perhaps feeling the backlash from his little outburst against president Trump, Tucker Carlson is back to doing what he does best: shilling for the president and protecting him from the liberal “Deep State”.   In a truly ludicrous segment on his show last night, Carlson claimed that despite Federal prosecutors explicitly stating that the president has committed a crime, Trump is in fact the victim of extortion and a liberal plot...

MEMBERS ONLY: The Skeptic’s Guide To ‘Never Trump’ Republicans

Posted in Members Only, Politics

There’s an ongoing debate among the left concerning the Never Trumpers. You know who they are, Republicans who woke up one day and realized that the Republican Party was filled with, well, Republicans! Can we trust them? Or will they stab liberals the back the second Trump is gone? It’s impossible to make such a grand, sweeping judgment on the entire group as every person and their motivations is different. For instance, David Frum...

My American Horror Story

Posted in Members Only, Society

When I first moved to America in the late 90’s (and then again in 2004) I remember listening to people’s horror stories about insane medical care costs. It was routine for people to face bankruptcy due to medical bills, despite having insurance. And then there were those without insurance who simply didn’t get treated and often died as a result. This was utterly alien to me. Coming from a...

MEMBERS ONLY: Teaming Up With ‘Never Trumpers’ Is Unpopular But Mandatory

Posted in Members Only, Politics

It’s never easy taking an unpopular position. It’s especially difficult when the unpopularity of the position comes from your own side of the political debate. I’ve somehow managed to be in this tight spot on more than one occasion. It was this way during certain stages of the Obama years — certainly during the Summer of Snowden back in 2013 when most of the left was lined up in support of...

MEMBERS ONLY: Cable News Is Already Trying To Handcuff And Ball-Gag The House Dems

Posted in Members Only, Politics

(image via Reuters) You might be surprised to learn that I’ve always kinda’ liked former RNC chairman and current MSNBC analyst Michael Steele. He’s a Never-Trumper and a seemingly reasonable guy regardless of his former political affiliations. Despite running the RNC, Steele was the first national Republican to confess to and apologize for the Republican “Southern Strategy” — collectively defining the party’s race-baiting tactics since the passage of the...
