Opinion: Investigate religious schools for indoctrinating students, not universities

Biden leads Trump in Texas and Georgia

When Trump appointed anti-public school lobbyist Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary, he made it abundantly clear that he detests America’s public education system.

On Friday Trump ordered Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to review American universities’ tax-exempt status after he threatened to cutoff federal funding to any schools that refuse to reopen despite the virulent Trump plague ravaging the nation. read more

Opinion: Deploy the military to protect protestors and journalists from violent police

After hundreds of videos revealing that complaints about police violence are completely valid, there is finally acknowledgement from some public officials that police reform is desperately needed and long overdue. Unfortunately, the National Rifle Association, police unions, Donald Trump, and Republicans at all levels of government will never allow any police reform to take place – not without a nasty fight. read more

Opinion: Before Trump an anti-fascist was a patriot defending democracy

The greatest threat to America and its people remains fascism – particularly domestic fascism. Until a few years ago, being against fascism was regarded as being a patriotic American, and then a dyed-in-the-wool fascist took up residence in the White House. Not long after Trump’s poorly-attended inauguration, his white supremacist supporters began labeling opposition to Trump’s white supremacist tendencies as inherently wrong, un-American, and anti-fascist. read more

Opinion: Trump is celebrating the civil unrest plaguing America

The civil unrest plaguing America is all Trump’s handiwork and it appears he will not be satisfied until his goal of dominating the American people with deadly force reaches fruition.

Many Americans believe that Trump is dazed and confused over the devastation facing the nation, but they ignore the fact that sowing chaos and division, and encouraging violence against American citizens, is part and parcel of his grand scheme to install himself as dictator. read more

Opinion: For Trump, churches are only essential for votes and money

It is highly likely that most Americans understand that terrible Trump’s only regard for religion is pandering to his evangelical cult because they are dedicated to keeping him in the Oval Office.

When Trump made a big deal about opening up the country so the plague-infected faithful could celebrate a pagan holiday Christians changed to Easter, he was indulging his evangelical base and little else. In fact, it is almost certain that Trump was acting on the advice, and on behalf, of his evangelical sycophants posing as White House “faith” counselors. read more

Opinion: Trump acolyte DeVos steers more COVID-19 stimulus money to religion

Republicans found another means of enriching religion with taxpayer dollars meant to aid Americans suffering the horrid effects of Trump’s plague and economic devastation.

When filthy rich, and highly-unqualified, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos began her quest to shift all taxpayer dollars intended for public education to private, for-profit religious schools, evangelicals and Republicans were ecstatic. After all, money allocated to sustain small businesses ravaged by Trump’s plague and economic disaster was just recently handed over to churches and clergy even though those institutions pay no taxes because they claim they are not businesses. read more

Opinion: Trump is systematically ripping America to shreds

It is no small wonder that besides evangelical fundamentalists, Trump’s greatest electoral base is comprised of anti-government, racist conspiracy theorists dreaming of destroying America from within. Although that nasty segment of the population is a minority and seemingly powerless to dismantle the government on its own, and although Trump sits in a place he should be banned from occupying, he wields a significant amount of unwarranted power. In Trump’s case, his dictatorial power is granted by Republicans in Congress who allow Trump to do precisely what the GOP dreams about – assaulting every part of the government with the sole purpose of tearing it apart. read more

Opinion: Barr uses the Justice Department for an evangelical Crusade and Inquisition

Last week Trump’s yes-man running the DOJ issued instructions to federal attorneys detailing their new job entailed serving as Inquisitors for the religious right in their Crusade to rule America. In this case the Crusade officially begins by using the Federal government, in concert with fundamentalist Christian conservatives, to punish state officials who dare to hold churches and religious leaders accountable to rules meant to preserve American lives. read more

Opinion: Trump wiped out Obama’s jobs and economic gains in a few weeks

Trump blames Obama for his coronavirus response

After Trump publicly exposed himself as Earth’s preeminent moron regarding how science relates to combatting the novel coronavirus, the imbecile-in-chief claimed his new focus is America’s economy. If that is Trump’s intent, then it is worth looking at why America is facing an economic disaster after his predecessor, President Barack Obama, left him with a raging economic success. Most people understand that Trump inherited a thriving “Obama economy”  only to completely decimate it in a matter of weeks. read more
