U.S. Rep. Green Qualifies for Impeachment

U. S. Representative Al Green (D-TX) filed impeachment charges against President Trump and his political stunt was soundly defeated by the House of Representatives. Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution provides for the removal of the President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Representative Green’s ridiculous claims didn’t allege “obstruction of justice” or reference the ongoing investigation into the 2016 presidential campaign’s connection with Russia. Now, if Congressman Green’s flawed and politicized standard for removal were to be applied to his own conduct then he is, as a civil officer of the United States, himself subject to removal from office.

Guilt by Accusation is the New Norm

Prior to the presidential election last year, candidate Hillary Clinton declared that all women who claim to have been sexually assaulted “have the right to be believed.” This year, a #MeToo movement of sexual harassment victims has swept the nation, and a tsunami of such accusations has swept the halls of power from Washington D.C. to Hollywood – with no sign of it abating. In its wake are disgraced men from Matt Lauer to Harvey Weinstein to Al Franken, their careers all justly destroyed by women who finally found the courage to speak out. But is the search for justice becoming a witch – or rather, warlock – hunt? Is the line between sexual assault and simple flirtation becoming dangerously blurred, ruining the lives of innocent victims? [more...]

What Roy Moore’s Candidacy Teaches Us

Following Roy Moore’s defeat in the Alabama Senatorial race, the political Nostradami of both parties are furiously predicting either doom or salvation for the other party. Dems think Doug Jones’s win means the South is up for grabs, and flipping the Senate and maybe even the House is possible. Donks predict that with the toxic Moore off the table, Jones’s win will no more flip the Senate than Scott Brown’s win did for the Republicans in 2010. More interesting is what Moore’s rise and fall tells us about our dysfunctional political culture. [more...]

'Trump - The Art of the Insult'
Directed by Joel Gilbert

In the new film, Trump: The Art of the Insult, Donald Trump dominated the 2016 Presidential face with a master plan of political incorrectness, using The Art of the Insult to brand political opponents and bash the media all the way to the White House. In the film, Donald Trump emerges as a marketing genius and performance artist who, despite being a Manhattan billionaire, captured the hearts of middle America. Critics are calling The Art of the Insult “the most entertaining political documentary ever!” [more...] Order in time for Christmas at www.artoftheinsult.com

The Truth About the GOP Tax Bill

There have been many changes to the tax bill since it was first drafted. In essence, the bill will give everyone a tax break in the near future, and then rates are expected to rebound in 2027. The bill will change the tax brackets, lowering personal taxes for unmarried individual filers and married joints filers anywhere between 1 to 3 percent. But the tax bill won’t just affect individuals, it will also affect businesses across every industry. However, the effect may not be proportional across every industry. For example, the tax bill will greatly reduce the tax cuts available to financial firms and real estate companies, but not as much for manufacturing and mining. [more...]
