GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS

The good news is that Trump is down to a record low in job approval for a President six months into his first term…36%. The bad news is that 36% is too high to get rid of him via impeachment in the House and removal in the Senate. Trump is losing the smattering of democrats

TIME TO STEP UP

In sports, when a star player gets injured the coach invariably says “somebody has to step up”. In other words, some player who had a lesser role has an opportunity to show he can do more. Right now, in the USA, we don’t have a star player. The most charitable thing we can say about

TRUMP: WHERE ARE WE AT?

Here’s where I think we are In The Matter of Donald J. Trump. One. Impeachment is not possible…now. Trump’s job approval rating, as of this writing, is 39%. That is historically LOW for a President at this stage of his presidency but it’s too HIGH for impeachment. When Richard Nixon resigned in August of 1974,

BANNON!

Steve Bannon has a problem. He’s in a tribal fight against the toughest, most effective political tribe in the country, the American Jewish Community, and Bannon’s tribe, Irish Catholics, disbanded 40 years ago. They don’t wear their brass knuckles anymore and they only meet on St. Patrick’s Day. We’re not cohesive and we don’t support

IMPEACHMENT

As of today, Donald Trump has been our President for 68 days. If he makes it through an entire four year term, we’ve got him for 1,393 more days. How does that make you feel? Does that put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step? Does that give you the feeling

TRUMP: STILL GETTING AWAY WITH IT

Getting away with what? The over-the-top lie to divert attention from a prior over-the-top lie and screw up that is exposing him for what he is … a real and present danger to the USA and the World. Compare Trump with his predecessor, Barack Obama. OBAMA has said in various interviews that he viewed his

MEMO TO TRUMP: CALL JIM BAKER NOW!

You have no “Administration”. You have a cluster of belligerent, incompetent liars (Conway, Spicer, Stephen Miller) going on TV contradicting each other and embarrassing the country. You are presiding over the worst roll out of a new administration in American history. It’s a farce. More importantly, it’s dangerous. At the rate you’re going, you’ll be

WHAT’S PAST IS PROLOGUE

If you’re trying to get a fix on where you are, take a look at where you’ve been. As the sign says at the National Archives in Washington DC, “What’s Past is Prologue.” So, to get some perspective, I took a look at our Presidents in the post World War II Era and tried to

HANG IN THERE STEVE BANNON

I’m starting to really like Steve Bannon, Trump’s pick to be Chief Strategist on the White House Staff. Sort of like what Karl Rove was for GWB. It’s not like it’s a man crush or anything. I’m still loyal to John Stockton, former point guard for the Utah Jazz, Patriots Coach Bill Belichik, and my

TRUMP … PLUS LONG KNIVES OUT FOR BANNON

I guess I should say something about the election. Everyone else has. So, in no particular order: Trump spoke FOR his people. Hillary spoke TO hers. If you read a transcript of the three debates, Hillary won them all. Watching them, Trump survived. He lived to fight another day. He let his people know he
