Spies Like Donald Jr.

7-11-17Donald Trump’s son Junior met with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have dirt on Hillary Clinton in June 2016. But why bother to dig up dirt on Hillary when her own record was the dirtiest possible?

The U.S. Is Shocked Shocked Shocked! That Russia May Have Meddled With Our Election

Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 7.34.38 PM

Democrats and the media have made much of FBI allegations that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election (though evidence has been in short supply). Whether or not it’s true, you kind of have to laugh at the outrage considering the fact that the country that interferes the most in the internal affairs of other nations, including coups and invasions, is none other than the United States of America.

Can’t We All Just Overbook? BY TED RALL

Phone video captured a United Airlines passenger being dragged off an airplane for refusing to be bumped after he had boarded. The airline said the flight was overbooked (lie) but it highlighted the practice of selling the same seat twice. Why can't the rest of us do the same thing?

DEMOCRATS: BORN TO LOSE — BY TED RALL

Democrats aren't used to fighting so they're understandably nervous about taking on Trump Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch with a filibuster. The good news for them is, it won't work.Democrats aren’t used to fighting so they’re understandably nervous about taking on Trump Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch with a filibuster.

What Do We Do Now? By Ted Rall

Not for me: I always said Donald Trump had a strong chance to win the presidency in a country where tens of millions of people are economically insecure, racist and/or sexist. The far right impulse has always been strong in American politics. But Trump has shocked the media and political establishment by pulling a come-from-behind victory over the deeply flawed right-wing Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Now we, and the world, must brace for the arrival of protofascism in the Oval Office, enabled by Republican rule over both houses of Congress.

THE BEST SYSTEM IN THE WORLD BY TED RALL

They tell us we live in a country that serves as a shining beacon on a hill, a model for democracies around the world. If that's true, how the hell did we end up with two candidates who are the #1 and #2 most unpopular candidates in the history of polling, either one of which could lead to disaster?

AT HOME WITH THE WHITES BY TED RALL

Another police shooting of a civilian with shifting narratives, another popular uprising, this time in Charlotte, North Carolina. Once again, white Americans are tsk-tsking that African-American rioters are making themselves look bad. The thing is, peaceful protests don't attract national attention.Another police shooting of a civilian with shifting narratives, another popular uprising, this time in Charlotte, North Carolina.
