Trump’s Defense: “Cohen has been lying for me for years, so you can’t trust him.”

Russian collusion investigation headline: “‘Kettle is black,’ Pot claims.” Reality TV president Donald Trump, faced with the awkward revelation, or allegation depending on your point of view, that he was fully informed at the time (2016) that high-ranking members of his campaign (including his son) were meeting with a woman they all believed was an operative of Vladimir Putin’s government, for the express...

Poor, Misunderstood Vladimir: Just a Religious Crusader Who Can’t Catch a Break

And the fascinating e-mails just keep on coming. Jamie Glazov, a relentless alternative media propagandist for Donald Trump, passes along a link to a wonderful article at American Greatness. (Hmm, that name reminds me of something…a campaign slogan, perhaps….) The article is by Michael Finch, who happens to have the very legitimate-sounding title, “president of the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles.”...

Bailouts! Gee, Who Could Have Seen This Coming?

The next time anyone, friend or foe, tells me to lighten up on Trump and his cultists, accusing me of “Trump Derangement Syndrome” or of being a “NeverTrumper” — go ahead, I dare you to define either of those terms in real English without making a fool of yourself — I now know the simple, one-word reply with which I will gleefully spare...

Carter Page and Donald Trump: Too Dumb to Collude?

I have tried to stay clear of the whole “Russian collusion” investigation, or whatever it is that Robert Mueller is engaged in, not because I believe it is “fake news” or “a witch hunt” — Trump’s election campaign really did have the material support of Vladimir Putin’s government, whether it was solicited or not, so the exposure of the nature and potential illegality...

Back in Limbo: How Low Can America Go?

I apologize to regular visitors for my uncharacteristically long absence from Limbo. I have just returned from a visit to the Democratic People’s Republic of Canada — but more on that later. For now, I will merely offer a few observations about the week’s big TV event, namely the latest and greatest episode of Trump’s Sellout Summit Series with Global Killers, Season One....

Happy Fourth of July! (But while I have your attention…)

  To all my American readers and friends — and that would be the majority in both categories — Happy Fourth of July from here in Limbo! This is a less than stellar moment for your nation, to put it mildly, but there is no reason not to take a day to appreciate all that is and has been great about modernity’s most...

Honorable, Smart, Funny Kim Jong-un; and a Tweet from George Washington

Kim Jong-un, whom Donald Trump recently praised more effusively and unqualifiedly than he has ever praised any American president, has, apparently as part of his enthusiastic surrender to Trump’s giant hands and amazing chess mastery, spent the past couple of weeks upgrading his nuclear weapons program and executing an army officer who ordered extra food for his starving troops. Had Barack Obama chosen...

Should Harley Get a Restraining Order Against Donnie?

From Right Scoop, we learn that Donald Trump’s tyrannical tirades and threats against private companies who don’t play his game his way are getting downright personal, and in the most embarrassing way possible: Harley-Davidson should stay 100% in America, with the people that got you your success. I’ve done so much for you, and then this. Other companies are coming back where they...

Random Rants

Trump is at it again, congratulating Turkish Islamist thug, opposition persecutor, and press censor Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on his recent election victory as de facto ruler for life, just as he congratulated Russian KGB thug, opposition persecutor, and press censor Vladimir Putin on his recent election victory as de facto ruler for life, and just as he congratulated Chinese Communist Party thug, opposition...

America, This Is Your President

Donald Trump, as many have pointed out, is a megalomaniac and a narcissist. To deny this evaluation at this point is merely to reject the labels of modern psychology, which is fine with me. But to reject the modern labeling is not to deny the underlying facts: Trump is a man intellectually crippled by self-importance and morally distorted by vanity. Here is a...
