“Roganing” is America’s Latest COVID Conspiracy Craze

It was altogether fitting that CNN Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta appeared on the show of Joe Rogan. The former MMA star and entertainer turned $100 million man on Spotify, Rogan also happens to be one of America’s foremost Coronavirus disinformation megaphones. And as it turns out, Joe Rogan himself popularized the latest GOP pandemic propaganda […]

REMINDER: President Trump Would Have to Raise the Debt Ceiling, Too

To my Republican friends willing to trigger a global economic catastrophe by refusing to raise the federal government’s debt ceiling, let’s engage in a little thought exercise. Imagine for the moment that Donald Trump actually won reelection in November 2020. (That shouldn’t be hard, given polling that shows that 66% of Republicans already wrongly believe […]

America's Afghanistan Withdrawal in Context

Sometimes a little historical context can put current events in perspective. Two weeks after the fall of Kabul, the United States successfully extracted over 120,000 Americans and Afghans from the capital. But thirteen American servicemen and women were killed in a terrorist attack during the high-risk mission to protect the ongoing airlift. Two weeks after […]

Trump Put 5,000 Taliban Fighters Back in Battle and Tied Biden’s Hands in Afghanistan

It’s amazing how America’s national security landscape changed in just four years. With the Islamic State on the ropes after the fall of Mosul, in February 2017 defense expert Andrew Exum proclaimed, “Donald Trump will defeat ISIS and it will mostly be due to the work of his predecessor.” But with Trump’s successor just weeks […]

“It’s Not True, and You Know It’s Not True”

History will record that on January 6, 2021, the President of the United States, 140 Republican House members and a dozen GOP Senators sought to overturn the results of the free and fair vote of the American people.

As the twin run-off elections in Georgia reach their climax on Tuesday, one can’t help but feel that history is being made. Again.

America and Americans Are Losing the COVID War

COVID-19 deaths in the United States reached 2,879 on Thursday. To put that American body count in perspective, the figure is more than the number of U.S. military personnel killed at the Battle of Shiloh in 1862 or Pearl Harbor in 1941 or even D-Day in 1944. Tomorrow and probably every day for the rest […]

A Brief History of the 2020 Presidential Election

DEMOCRATS: Coronavirus is coming to the USA. We have to prepare the country for the pandemic and massively mobilize national resources for hospitalizations, testing, tracing and isolation. REPUBLICANS: The Wuhan flu? Like a miracle it will disappear. Besides, you can’t infringe on my liberties. DEMOCRATS: But hundreds of thousands of Americans will die— REPUBLICANS: You […]

Donald Trump’s Presidency in Three Pictures

As President, Donald Trump broke a long list of promises he made to the American people. He didn’t build a big, beautiful wall, and certainly did not get Mexico to pay for it. Far from being on track to eliminate the entire national debt “over a period of eight years,” Trump only added to the […]
