Friday was quite a day for Steve Bannon. From being fired in the morning from his job as Chief Strategist at the Trump White House to convening an Editorial Meeting at his old home, Breitbart News, in the afternoon. When the news crossed the wires that Trump had let Bannon go, cheers broke out on the floor of
STEVE BANNON: GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
WE’D BE BETTER OFF IF HE WAS A DRUNK.
Yeah, I’m talking about Trump, our president. At least if he was a drunk, there could be an intervention. He could get help. Get in a program. AA. Something. Unfortunately, he’s stone cold sober. We’re seeing Trump at the top of his game. This is who he is. We’re on notice. How much more do
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?

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,
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
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
