Inevitable Robert Mueller Clash Only Current Compelling Trump Storyline

Inevitable Robert Mueller Clash Only Current Compelling Trump Storyline
Unless it involves a new, big breaking news bombshell in the Robert Mueller investigation, I'm tired of any news relating to Donald Trump. I'm more tired than Prince Valium in Spaceballs. I have Trump, especially Trump Twitter fatigue. I'm more fatigued than an obese man trying to run a half-marathon. We are headed to an inevitable showdown between Trump and Robert Mueller, and until we get there, we're all trapped in a vicious cycle constructed by an astounding confluence of factors...

Tomi Lahren and Seven Other Real Life Troll Bots

Tomi Lahren and Seven Other Real Life Troll Bots

One of the leading models of sex robots looks a lot like Tomi Lahren, a Twitter user once joked to me. It’s not just her looks that resemble a bot, so does the worthless tripe she spews on a daily basis.

Lahren, like a few other “sociopolitical commentators” out there today, and so many before her, does the same exact work as thousands of Russian troll bots every time she speaks in public.

The Russians knew exactly how to further drive wedges between us in this country, because we have had our very own popular/polarizing media figures showing them the way for many years already. Friday brought a bombshell revelation in the Robert Mueller investigation into Russian election meddling and potential collusion with the Trump campaign.

Sick of Gun Violence? Throw the NRA Puppets Out of Office, Here's How

Sick of Gun Violence? Throw the NRA Puppets Out of Office, Here's How

The Congressional approach to gun control mirrors the parenting method of Ned Flanders’ beatnik mother:

“we tried nothing, and we’re all out of ideas.”

Of course, it’s nothing by design because so many of our most powerful leaders in Washington are beholden to the National Rifle Association, from whom they receive much of their campaign funding. In fact, the NRA donated $5.8 million to Republican candidates, and just $100,000 to Democrats. Right now, in the wake of the tragedy in Parkland, Florida which took 17 lives, it’s time to both think about how to change the status quo, and take action to help make it happen. 

This mass shooting feels different than all the previous senseless disasters. This time, it feels like the enthusiasm gap between the NRA agenda and the rest of us who believe in common sense gun regulation is finally closing.

Arthur Jones is the Next Roy Moore, and He's Right Here in Chicago

Arthur Jones is the Next Roy Moore, and He's Right Here in Chicago

The election of candidates like Donald Trump opened the door for candidates like Roy Moore to win primaries and run in the general election on a national stage. Roy Moore has opened the door for Arthur Jones, a bonafide, full-blown Holocaust denying former member of the American neo-Nazi party who wants to be Congressman of Illinois' third district.

It's a district that encompasses parts of the city of Chicago, as well as several southwestern suburbs. The 70-year-old Jones will run unopposed in the Republican primary March 20th, and will likely then face off against the favorite on the Democratic side, incumbent Dan Lipinski in the November general election. Lipinski, in power since 2005, is a member of the Blue Dog Coalition, the more conservative wing of the Democratic Party.

Winter Olympics Verify Mike Pence Hypocrisy on NFL National Anthem Protests

Winter Olympics Verify Mike Pence Hypocrisy on NFL National Anthem Protests

Vice President Mike Pence regarding NFL players kneeling for the Star-Spangled Banner this past NFL season:

"I don't think it's too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem."

This is also Mike Pence: a man who refused to stand for the host country as they entered the 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies.

The NRA: A bigger threat than terrorism?

The NRA: A bigger threat than terrorism?

Today, many on the left and in the center believe the NRA, the National Rifle Association, to be a terrorist organization. That would make Chairman Wayne La Pierre a terrorist leader, a label that the left has not been shy about affixing to him. 

What happened in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay was a terrorist act. Ditto for the church in Sutherland Springs (Texas), The Pulse night club in Orlando, Newton, Columbine, the school in Kentucky last week and everywhere else. What those deplorable, irredeemable monsters of human beings did was the very definition of terrorism.

Maybe Sharks Could Be Donald Trump's Kryptonite?

Maybe Sharks Could Be Donald Trump's Kryptonite?

They say that Donald Trump is the "Telfon Don," as nothing can stop him. Given the long list (which just keeps getting longer by the day) of scandals, character flaws, missteps, gaffes and bad decisions (which we have chronicled in detail at this link) that would have ended anyone's political career but his, it's easy to understand why the moniker has stuck.

However, even Superman had a Kryptonite, and with Trump it could be sharks. Yes, sharks, the seagoing predators that reside at the top of the ocean food chain. We're joking of course, except for the fact that we're not.

Bitcoin, Bubbles and More: Chicago Booth Faculty Tackle Big Issues

Bitcoin, Bubbles and More: Chicago Booth Faculty Tackle Big Issues

Chicago Booth Economic Outlook #BoothEO provided a thoroughly informative session that covered many of the most important and pressing financial and economic issues of the day. A multitude of topics were covered, including the recent tax cut bill, what effect a Donald Trump impeachment would have on the stock market, the bitcoin/cryptocurrency craze and much much more.

It was moderated by CNBC anchor/reporter Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, who is certainly no moderate when it comes to her political and economic views. She's unabashed about her devotion to the so-called "free market," as she mentioned during the session that her book is dedicated to to Milton Friedman.

The Deep State: Just What is it, Exactly?

The Deep State: Just What is it, Exactly?

The so-called "Deep State" is one of many extremist sociopolitical phenomena that have recently risen in popularity so significantly that now even moderates and liberals must take notice.

If your views are center, or left of it, you probably weren't even aware that things like Tomi Lahren, TheBlaze (it's one word for some reason), Daily Stormer, Richard Spencer, Milo Yiannopoulos, Clay Travis etc. even existed until mid 2016.

The fact that substantially more of us non-wing nuts are aware of who they are is obviously not necessarily a good thing, but at the same time we all must consistently exit our ideological silos.
