GOP Night 4: get ready for another Trump rock ‘em sock ‘em speech

There’s no NBA on tonight, and therefore no excuse not to see what President Donald Trump is up to at the final night of the Republican National Convention. Let’s see what shenanigans he gets up to tonight, as he prepares to rip apart “Sleepy Joe” Biden and the Democrats. Needless to say, it’s a sad…

Night two of the GOP: Melania Trump to speak

Tonight is night two of the Republican National Convention. The big attraction tonight is the speech from Melania Trump, and the question is whether or not it’s going to be any better than the one she gave four years ago, which got blasted by the Twitterati for ripping off Michelle Obama. Secretary of State Mike…

Day one for the Trump GOP actually feels like a real convention today

Today is day one of the Republican National Comvention. And by “day” I truly mean “day”, because a lot of the activity actually happened in Charlotte earlier. They actually did the roll call to unanimously re-nominate Donald Trump for president. And Trump even put in an appearance and made a speech!! Just as I had…

Biden speaks tonight, finally

It’s Night 4 for the Democrats. Good, this lackluster “virtual” convention will soon be over. Based on what we saw on TV this week, you’ll never know Milwaukee was even involved. So far, it looks like “Loser’s Night” at the convention, where all the big losers from the primary season are getting their last chance…

Yes, indeed, America, this man Donald Trump is still your President

After an epic State of the Union address last night — one in which cancer-stricken Rush Limbaugh was awarded the Medal of Freedom, and in which House speaker Nancy Pelosi tore up copies of the SOTU speech after it was delivered — today President Donald Trump gets his revenge. He gets to tear up both…

News from Nowhere gets ready for trial! Trump, Weinstein, etc.

Welcome to what I hope will be a short News from Nowhere as I am still busy watching NFL playoff games. The big news is about a couple of trials about to happen down in the ‘States. The first is the big IMPEACHMENT trial of Pres. Donald Trump, due to begin in the U.S. Senate….

Assassination in the Middle East!! What now?

So much for the “new Roaring 20s” being better than this last miserable decade we just experienced. Instead, are you all ready for “World War 3”? That’s the term that trended on Twitter yesterday, along with the name “Franz Ferdinand“, after the killing by the Americans of Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani in an airstrike. The…

Impeached!

Donald Trump becomes the third US president in history to be impeached and now faces trial in Senate https://t.co/LzoX7IsqRi — BBC Breaking News (@BBCBreaking) December 19, 2019 Democrats approve the second article of impeachment against @realDonaldTrump on "obstruction of Congress". — John Roberts (@johnrobertsFox) December 19, 2019 In the spring, @SpeakerPelosi said impeachment would have…

This is it: impeachment happening today in the House

The House of Representatives is debating the two articles of impeachment against Pres. Donald Trump right now. The vote is later on today, likely around the same time Trump stages a rally in Battle Creek. For updates from CNN click here. For updates from the Washington Post see here. For Fox News click here. “It…

In advance of impeachment, Trump pens an angry letter to the Democrats

Well, folks, this is it. Tomorrow is the big impeachment vote on Pres. Donald Trump. In advance of that, Trump sent a letter to the Democrats’ leader Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which CNN and everyone else is describing as “unhinged”. Meanwhile, I notice a lot of Republicans out there are saying they actually agree with Trump….

Big week ahead in impeachment of Trump, with House set to vote

Now that last week’s excitement out of the UK is out of the way we can now fully focus on the fate of Pres. Donald Trump. The big House vote on impeachment will likely happen this week, possibly Wednesday but maybe even Thursday. Should the articles pass, it then heads to the Senate for the…

All heck has broken loose in D.C. over this latest Trump nonsense

President Donald Trump met the media today in another one of his infamous news conferences, denying any wrongdoing. From what little I saw of it, it seemed more subdued and shorter than usual, for obvious reasons. It sounds like he is in deep political trouble over his Ukraine-Biden nonsense, with the accusations Trump was trying…

Wall Street takes the plunge: down upwards of 850 points on China trade war fears

What a debacle on Wall Street so far today. The Dow was down 850 points as the stock market freaks out over “Tariffman” Donald Trump threatening new 10-percent tariffs on China imports, followed swiftly by Chinese retaliation measures to lower its currency and suspend U.S. agricultural imports! Trump is now accusing China of currency manipulation….

The full Mueller report is finally out for all to see

Yes, the Mueller report is finally made public, at long last. Not as much “winning” here for the current President today. Needless to say, everyone is making the report sound really bad, pointing to the stuff about clashes between Trump and his White House staff. If this is all these prosecutors have on Pres. Donald…

Good grief, folks. Trump is now looking to close the Mexican border.

This, my friends, is what you get whenever Pres. Donald Trump is “winning”. Fresh off the heels of his Mueller report “victory”, which debunked the Russia collusion claims and which humiliated all his political opponents and the mainstream media in the process, now Trump wants to close the border with Mexico. (!) (?) Yes, we…

The wall comes crumbling down on top of Trump

Yesterday was a very bad day to be the President of the USA. First, the FBI takes down Trump loyalist Roger Stone and arrests him in a takedown shown exclusively on CNN (gee, how did they manage that?). After he is released on $250,000 bail, Stone then emerged from a Ft. Lauderdale court with his…

Media takes a hit after latest anti-Trump piece gets slammed by Mueller

Folks in the news media, next time you accuse Pres. Donald Trump of something in print, would you please get it right?! For a change? On Friday, BuzzFeed ran this story citing law enforcement people, claiming Pres. Donald Trump had ordered Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the Trump Tower project in Russia. This…

Oh, brother. One day after the election, Trump eats the press!

What a display today, folks. Just one day after the GOP lost the House to the Democrats in the midterms, a diminished-looking Pres. Donald Trump, supposedly the leader of the free world, once again acted like some third-rate hick town politician by giving a dressing down to CNN’s Jim Acosta at a wild news conference…
