Declaring Trump Illegitimate Part of a Coup Plot

January 16th, 2017 (0)

Does Trump Now Accept the Phony Russian Hacking Claim?

January 10th, 2017 (0)

Will Trump Defy Expectations and Be a Peace President?

January 9th, 2017 (0)

Campaign to Impeach Trump

January 4th, 2017 (0)
A personal note. My comments below reflect a commitment to rule of law principles, not support or rejection of Trump as America’s 45th president. Judge him based on how he serves once in office, no other way. Deplorable treatment ...

The “Russia Attacks Vermont” Fake News Story

January 2nd, 2017 (0)
Sound absurd? It is, part of intense Russia bashing, a political and economic assault via fake news, risking something more serious. On New Year’s eve, the neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post published an updated version of its previous fake news story. ...
