“We have to beat Trump”

Earlier this fall, I had a convo that’s kept me up nearly every night since: A supporter told me that while they loved @runforsomething , they simply couldn’t make us a priority going into 2020. “We have to beat Trump,” they said. “Everything else is on hold.” Let’s be clear: That mentality — that winning […]

As of today, I’m an Independent

I’ve always called myself Republican. I keep my Twitter feed generally apolitical & will continue to do so. Generally. But as of today, I’m switching parties. Over impeachment. The Republican positions aren’t consonant with intellectual honesty. As of today, I’m an Independent.

This is what the world needs

This is what the world needs. Today in Rome upwards of 100,000 people took to the streets to protest fascism and far-right politician Matteo Salvini. America, our turn begins on Tuesday.

Trump-Giuliani Ukraine; “It’s just not credible to me,”

Only then, would the aid be released.” Nunes kicks off the second part of today’s proceedings by calling it ”act two of […]

Ukrainians considered Giuliani “an important conduit” to Trump.

“I’ve never seen anything like this, someone calling the President from a mobile phone at a restaurant, and then having a conversation of this level of candor, colorful language. There’s just so much about the call that was so remarkable,” Holmes said “I think the Ukrainians gradually came to understand that they were being […]

Stop and frisk is a complex issue and, by and large, a lot of police reform happened when Bloomberg took over from Rudy.

But another thing that I could see being a campaign issue is the NYPDs violent suppression of Occupy Wall Street and other protests in the Bloomberg years I’ve thought of Occupy a […]

What will Republicans run on in 2020?

Serious question: what will Republicans run on in 2020? We have a trillion dollar deficit. Trump is ending affordable care w/no replacement. Our world standing has fallen. The tax scam hurt most Americans. Kentucky and Louisiana are just the beginning. The Trump brand is toxic! The only “accomplishment” legislatively was the tax scam. Trump and […]
