The Nixonization Of Donald Trump
Huffington Post - 9 months
The comparisons are multiplying. There was Trump’s appeal to the “silent majority” during the presidential election, his later adoption of the “mad man” theory in his foreign policy, his possible taping of conversations, his arm-twisting of top officials, and his all-around involvement in the scandals enveloping his administration. In a late night monologue last week, Jimmy Kimmel delivered a particularly apt zinger: “When we said Trump should act more presidential, we probably should have specified — we didn’t mean Nixon.” But it’s worse than that. I knew Richard Nixon (well, not directly), and Donald Trump is no Richard Nixon. For all of his manifest flaws, Nixon at least had an idea of what he was doing in the White House. Despite being a pro-business racist who detested environmentalists, Nixon supported new environmental laws, championed economic policies that would have placed him on the left side of the Democratic Party, and even expanded affirmative action. But it w...

I Am An Enemy Of The People
Huffington Post - 11 months
Even before the election of Donald Trump — and his extraordinary declaration that the media are the “enemies of the people” — U.S. journalism was in trouble. According to Gallup polling, American trust in mass media plummeted from an already low 40 percent in 2015 to a historic low of 32 percent in September 2016. The drop in the trust that Republicans have in the media was staggering: from 32 percent to a mere 14 percent. This last number applies as well to Trump supporters regardless of party affiliation. If I were a Trump supporter, I’d probably look askance at the mainstream media as well. First of all, newspapers overwhelmingly backed Hillary Clinton for president: 240 editorial boards supported Clinton while only 19 favored Trump. It wasn’t so much that editorial boards are generally liberal. In 2012, after all, Mitt Romney received 105 endorsements, while Barack Obama got only 99. Rather, regardless of political leanings, editorial boards consistently distrusted Dona...

A Fish Called Bannon
Huffington Post - 12 months
Whenever I read or hear something White House chief strategist Steve Bannon says or thinks, I’m reminded of Otto, the character Kevin Kline plays in A Fish Called Wanda. You know, the self-proclaimed ex-CIA hit man who believes he’s super-intelligent but really, really isn’t? It finally takes Jamie Lee Curtis’ character, Wanda, to put Otto in his place. “Let me correct you on a couple of things, okay?” she tells him. “Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not ‘Every man for himself.’ And the London Underground is not a political movement. Those are all mistakes, Otto. I looked them up.” Am I the only one who hears Otto when Steve Bannon speaks? Apparently not, because here’s the redoubtable editor and essayist Andrew Sullivan hitting said same nail on said same head. A couple of weeks ago, commenting in New York magazine on some of the mediocrities Trump has ushered into the White House, Sullivan wrote about Bannon’s now-infamous Skype address to a conf...

Wall Street Journal Editor Says His Newspaper Won't Call Donald Trump's Lies 'Lies'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
WASHINGTON ― Wall Street Journal Editor-in-Chief Gerard Baker said his newspaper would not refer to false statements from the Trump administration as “lies,” because doing so would ascribe a “moral intent” to the statements. Baker appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday, where he described some of President-elect Donald Trump’s falsehoods as “questionable” and “challengeable.” But, he said, “I’d be careful about using the word ‘lie.’ ‘Lie’ implies much more than just saying something that’s false. It implies a deliberate intent to mislead.” He said reporters should state the facts, but leave classifying them to readers, citing the example of Trump’s claim that thousands of Muslims in New Jersey were celebrating on 9/11 (which is false). “I think it’s then up to the reader to make up their own mind to say, ‘This is what Donald Trump says. This is what a reliable, trustworthy news organization reports. And you know what? I don’t think that’s true.’” The New York Times ed...

The Swinging Dick Election Of 2016
Huffington Post - over 1 year
It all began with Donald Trump sizing up his own swinging dick through the assessment of his most beautiful, yet tiny, hands. That's when Swinging Dicks took control of this election cycle, which has become a full-scale assault on women everywhere. So you'll have to excuse me if what I'm writing seems... dirty. America is choking on swinging dicks. Trump was exposed on an "Access Hollywood" tape admitting that "grabbing them by the pussy" is his preferred handshake for women. That was topped when Trump claimed to have never done anything to women because he respects them so much. The Lie That Would Not Stand has caused Trump's chances of being president to vanish and it's because conservative women don't want this swinging dick in the White House. The latest accusations of Trump's out of control swinging dick has Donald once again caught on tape sexually harassing a woman. Then there is Anthony Weiner, a proud member of The Swinging Dick Club who has sullied the st...

Lou Dobbs' Rant About 'Mormon Mafia' Becomes Twitter's Best New Hashtag

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs recently fired off an angry tweet about Evan McMullin, the third-party conservative running neck-and-neck with GOP nominee Donald Trump in Utah.  McMullin’s strong showing is threatening to hand the state to Democrat Hillary Clinton, or he could win the state’s six electoral votes himself ― a notion that has Trump supporters such as Dobbs steamed enough to blame a “Mormon Mafia.” Look Deeper, He's nothing but a Globalist, Romney and Mormon Mafia Tool #MAGA #AmericaFirst #TrumpPence16 #TrumpTrain #Dobbs https://t.co/WfjYzck2jt — Lou Dobbs (@LouDobbs) October 23, 2016 Although the tweet was published over the weekend, it was widely retweeted late Wednesday and led to the birth of a new hashtag: #MormonMafia.  Here’s a sampling:  Not only is there a #MormonMafia, they have biker gangs running the streets pic.twitter.com/oaTTO7uQpa — Philip Moon (@Philip_R_Moon) October 27, 2016 "Funny like a clown?

Does Facebook Make You Narrow-Minded?
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
That's the thrust of Frank Bruni's thoughtful column in the New York Times where he references social psychologists to assert that we're turning into "culturally and ideologically inflexible tribes." By bookmarking given blogs and personalizing social-media feeds, we customize the news we consume and the political beliefs we're exposed to as never before. And this colors our days, or rather bleeds them of color, reducing them to a single hue. We construct precisely contoured echo chambers of affirmation that turn conviction into zeal, passion into fury, disagreements with the other side into the demonization of it. Yes, we've all seen that kind of Facebook free-for-all, most recently between the Sanders and Clinton camps--though it can be about anything and happen within minutes. But before Facebook was so popular, how many people who use it ever bothered to read editorials expressing political opinions opposite of their own? How many Fox News watchers, for instance, sp...

Republicans Do Not Want to "Fix Our Politics"
Huffington Post - about 2 years
After facing many years of stringent obstructionism and historically unprecedented levels of disrespect from congressional Republicans, President Obama was relatively charitable in his final State of the Union address while discussing the hyper-partisan politics that long ago took over Washington. The president called on his audience to "fix our politics" by restoring "basic bonds of trust between... citizens" -- something that was seemingly lost when right-wingers began accusing the President of being a closet-Muslim who was born in Kenya. He continued: "[Democracy] doesn't work if we think the people who disagree with us are all motivated by malice, or that our political opponents are unpatriotic. Democracy grinds to a halt without a willingness to compromise; or when even basic facts are contested, and we listen only to those who agree with us... It's one of the few regrets of my presidency - that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better......

Richard (RJ) Eskow: Obamacare and the Right-Wing Fight for Indentured Servitude
The Huffington Post - about 4 years
As Media Matters and other outlets noted last week, right-wing commentators drastically misrepresented a CBO report's findings about the Affordable Care Act. Fox News, Washington Post conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin, and many other conservative pundits misstated the report's optimistic conclusion -- that the equivalent of up to 2.5 million workers would eventually leave the workforce -- as instead claiming that 2.5 million jobs would be lost as a result of the law But if these conservatives "misread" the report, as the Media Matters headline puts it, it was a telling error. While the ACA is flawed in some respects, the CBO report pointed to one of its strongest features: by at least partially uncoupling health care coverage from employment, it is unfettering workers from jobs they would prefer to leave. (The 2.5 million figure was also misinterpreted; the CBO discussed full-time equivalent workers, since some people will stay in the workforce but work fewer hours.) ...

Hillary and Her Critics -- Here We Go Again
Huffington Post - about 4 years
It seems the pundits and polls in our town and on cable TV looking to fill the time can't get over the apparently irresistible temptation to blame Hillary Clinton for ... well, just about everything. Recent press reports quoted anonymous Democrats expressing concerns that Clinton is making the "same mistakes" as she allegedly did in her 2008 presidential campaign. Imagine she is the -- dare I use the expression? -- "the front-runner" in all the polls, among Democrats for the nomination, among all voters for the general election. How could she? Why dare she? It's all her fault! Why ... sputter... why doesn't she just order the pollsters to stop taking polls? Or her supporters to stop answering? I mean, it's just 33 months from Election Day 2016! Where is her platform? Her new ideas? Her vision for America? Why is she silent? For months, critics of the former first lady have blamed her for remaining silent while President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have attempte...

ENDA, Language and Rachel Maddow
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Last week the United States Senate passed ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, by a vote of 64-32, with 10 Republicans voting "aye." With the first part of the lobbying campaign now over and the more challenging House effort upon us, one of the more important consequences of the effort has already come to fruition. One benefit of working on such legislation is the educational impact on the country. The media covered various aspects of the effort, ramping up last week when the bill appeared on the floor for multiple votes. Passing laws has many purposes, but a major one with civil rights laws is the national megaphone provided to the civil rights community. We have been able to introduce ourselves to many, and while that holds for the entire LGBT community, it is particularly true for the trans population. Far more Americans know a gay person than know a trans one, and this bill was a wonderful vehicle for an educational effort. The hope was that our work would be amplified by...
