Yes, There Is a Difference.

Trump’s defenders, and some media organizations, are claiming that there is little difference between Obama and Trump on the matter of issuing executive orders and presidential memoranda, based solely on the number that each president issued.

That’s a straw-man argument. There are three commanding reasons why Trump and Republicans are acting like power-grabbing hypocrites.   See more

The Trump Chronicles: Week One

Starting now, I am documenting, week by week, all of the highlights of the Trump presidency. Today is for Trump’s first week only, and from my experience wallowing in this bizarre depth of insanity, I can say that this job is a filthy one indeed. I feel like I need a shower.

Trump may simply be hurrying its pace somewhat, making the mythical frog in boiling water a little more aware of what’s happening. But the point that many are missing is that Trump is not the threat; he’s trying to ride the threat, but the real danger is the ongoing conservative redefinition of our country.   See more

Slamming Shut the Golden Door

It has long been the policy of this nation to open its doors to those in the world who have needed it most. This has been one of our highest principles, one of our greatest strengths, one of our noblest qualities.

I exist because of this policy.   See more

Trump’s Executive Order on “Foreign Terrorist Entry”

Trump recently issued an executive order titled, “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States.” Conservatives love it; it plays to all of their fears and prejudices. This is their red meat. They claim it will keep us safe.

They’re wrong.   See more
