Opinion: Inciting Hatred Ought to Be an Impeachable Offense

[Where indicated, this article includes opinion by Tobias J. Grant, legal analyst at PoliticusUSA]

If a president incites one group of Americans to hate another group of Americans, it ought to be an impeachable offense. No matter what your views on the size of government may be, surely we can agree that a President must be duty bound to protect all Americans – not just the ones he likes. read more

Opinion: Nothing About Our Race Problem is Left To the Imagination

Trump leaves nothing to the imagination, including our race problem .

Back in 2016, I suggested that Trump is capable of ethnic cleansing to make America “great again” and people laughed. No one is laughing now and my only regret is being right. read more

Opinion: Mueller’s Testimony Will Show Us The Ways To Say There Was Collusion and Obstruction

Democrats are hoping that Mueller’s testimony on Wednesday will show us all the ways you can say there was “collusion” and there was obstruction.

In reality, there was evidence to show that Donald Trump’s campaign conspired with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election. Since then, Donald Trump has done everything imaginable and beyond that to obstruct the facts. read more

Opinion: Patriotism Means Rejecting Trump’s Sh*t hole Vision for America

Trump citizenship question

The most patriotic thing an American can do is reject Donald Trump’s sh*t hole “vision” for America. It’s not because Donald Trump proposed it. It’s because his “vision” consistently brought war and political instability every time it was tried by ordinary countries in history who were trying to achieve the exceptionalism that America already has. Exceptionalism doesn’t mean perfection. read more

Opinion: Trump May Be Planning To Replace Human Rights With A Hierarchy of Privileges

Opinion: A Concentration Camp By Any Other Name Is Still a Concentration Camp

Donald Trump’s extra-judicial facilities at the southern border are concentration camps.  You can’t make them less ugly by changing their name.

A year ago, America learned Donald Trump’s ICE was separating children from parents – in our name.  The Trump administration put babies and children in cages.  The Secretary of Homeland Security tried to deny they were cages during congressional testimony.  But no matter how she tried to deny or change the name, everyone knew those children were put in cages. read more

Opinion: The Drumbeat For Impeachment Is Getting Louder And More Intense

A new poll shows that among Democrats, the drumbeat for impeachment proceedings is getting louder and more intense.

At 27%, overall support for impeachment is up 10% from last month. Another 24% of those polled support continuing the investigation.  The effect of these numbers, in isolation of any other consideration, is bad news for Donald Trump. read more

Opinion: SCOTUS Ruling All But Guarantees State Criminal Charges For Trump

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 (Justices Ginsburg and Gorsuch dissenting) to uphold the “dual sovereignty” doctrine. That means that state law is separate and independent from federal law in relation to “double jeopardy,” that is, being putting on trial twice for the same act. Which means in turn that Trump loyalists charged and convicted under state law can’t be pardoned by Trump. read more

Opinion: Trump is a Misfit Among Our D-Day Allies

During his stay in London, Donald Trump proved to be as much a misfit among British Royalty as he was with leaders of our other D-Day allies.

On this day, seventy-five years ago, Allied Troops invaded Normandy to eventually defeat the Nazis. Every year since then, the leaders of the free world gather to commemorate this day – to celebrate the fact that good and freedom won over evil and tyranny. We call it D-Day even though the D doesn’t really stand for anything. read more

Opinion: Resisting Trump’s Attack on America

My point then and today is we have to believe that we will prevail over Trump. Otherwise, we may as well start eating borscht and chanting “MAGA”.

All of this, I mean all of it, is about defeating our minds and our spirits. The moment we give up on America, we give in to Donald Trump.

Opinion: Trump Aims To Weaken The Courts By Pardoning War Criminals

Opinion: Kamala Harris Is A Profile in Courage and Breaking Barriers

Kamala Harris broke barriers at every stage of her career. Now she’s going for the one between women and the White House. Everything about Kamala Harris is so much more than merely not being Trump.
