Chicago Honors Terrorist After Dishonoring Trump

 

Chicago aldermen honored FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation) terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera by naming a section of roadway after him. If only Leopold and Loeb, Al Capone, and John Wayne Gacy cloaked their crimes in a cause, then they, too, might now enjoy Second City street-sign salutes. “He was a suspect of FALN bombings starting […]

‘Donald Trump Rants and Raves at the Press’

 

Donald Trump, a promoter of the historic Mike Tyson-Michael Spinks heavyweight title unification bout in 1988, picked up some tricks from the favorite trade of the Marquess of Queensberry. The president counterpunches, and he purposefully does so to his antagonist’s weakest spot. The media claimed the scalp of Labor Secretary nominee Andy Puzder this week. […]

The Donald v. The Judges

 

Judges dislike people who judge… them. The fauxtrage over President Trump’s continued criticism of the black-robed, white-wigged set works as Exhibit A illustrating the point. Judge James Robart slapped down a Trump executive order. The president slapped back on social media. Trump labeled Robart a “so-called judge” and called his decision overturning his restriction on […]

GOP Hits Home Run Finally Playing Hardball on Court

 

The recent history of conservatives and the Supreme Court looks a lot like Charlie Brown kicking at the football, the Washington Generals hypnotized by Meadowlark Lemon spinning a basketball, or George McFly wearing a kick-me sign on his back in the halls of Hill Valley High School.

The Dow’s Donny Downers

 

The Dow eclipsed 20,000 this week. That’s bad news for people who hate good news. “If the question is when markets will recover,” Paul Krugman wrote in the New York Times on election night, “a first-pass answer is never.” A few days before Donald Trump’s election, the Dow stood at under 18,000. Months later, it […]

Hope & Change Comes Eight Years Into the Obama Presidency

 

Barack Obama finally delivers on his message of hope and change on this, the last day of his presidency. Don’t accuse the man of not fulfilling this ubiquitous, and amorphous, campaign pledge.

The Blacklist Returns

 

A group called Grab Your Wallet seeks a boycott of L.L. Bean because one of the Maine clothing company’s 50 family owners donated to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. OpenSecrets.com shows that contributions emanating from employees of the Maine company favored Democrats over Republicans this election cycle. The disparity appears especially pronounced at the presidential level. […]

Some Hate Crimes Are More Equal Than Others

 

Not all hate crimes are created equal. This pertains even to those hate crimes created out of whole cloth, which receive a privileged status when furthering the perceived aims of the underprivileged. The ideological commitment to the idea of systemic inequality nudges popular media to popularize hate crimes, no matter how specious, that propel this […]

2016, the Year That Time Remembered

 

The obligatory annum-ending column that traffics in fresh nostalgia (the stalest kind) gets a double-dose of it in 2016, the year that time remembered. The calendar nearly past borrowed heavily from the past. One must travel down the box-office bestsellers list to #19 to find an original, live-action film (Central Intelligence) that does not fall […]

’Tis the Season to Make America Hate Again

 

“Resistance means repetition,” Keith Olbermann says of the looming Donald Trump presidency. “Humiliate him, humiliate him every day, and those who support him.” People intent on humiliating others end up humiliating themselves. Police arrested a Greenville, Mississippi, parishioner of the Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church for burning down the structure and spray painting “Vote Trump” on […]
