Latest Politics

Asshole of the Month: Elon Musk

Those who earn great success and wealth, not from being born with a silver spoon in their mouths but by pulling up on their own bootstraps, are rightly honored in this country, perhaps more so than in any other. Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Carnegie and Thomas Edison sit high in our pantheon of the American Dream;...

Worst (Best?) “Red Wave” Ever

Democracy fights to live another day. Call it Roevember. Even Joevember. What you can’t call it is a “red wave,” much less a “red tsunami,” as hyped by Republicans and their easily hoaxed lackeys in the cowardly corporate media during the run-up to the 2022 midterm elections. “I can’t say for sure where rumors of...

Truth Has Been Politicized

The former President and America’s right wing benefit more than ever from our corporate media pulling punches. In early August 2022, federal law enforcement officials executed a search warrant at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. A federal judge, based on a sworn affidavit from the FBI, found “probable cause” to believe that the former President violated...

Asshole of the Month: Kanye West (Ye)

One thing history teaches us is that some of the greatest creative geniuses can also be flaming Assholes. The pioneering scientist Sir Isaac Newton was notorious for petty, vicious feuds with rivals, and even professed faith in alchemy. Picasso was a womanizer who used most of the women in his life like cheap doormats. Frank...

Democrats Just Changed Everything

With no help from congressional Republicans. And most Americans have yet to notice. It was not normal. In late summer the U.S. West was slammed by a relentless, record heat wave. For two unforgiving weeks, temperatures topped 110 degrees Fahrenheit in scores of cities. California’s capital, Sacramento, hit a mercury-shattering 116 degrees as more than...

Asshole of the Month: Vladimir Putin

British historian Lord Acton wisely observed that “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” In modern times, there is no better example of this than Russia’s longtime leader Vladimir Putin, who now threatens to launch a nuclear holocaust with his invasion and annexation of eastern Ukraine. Putin started his career in that notorious...

Democracy Is on Your Ballot

This year you get an extra vote for the 2024 Presidential election. Please vote wisely. I am not a member of the Democratic Party, but I will vote like one this year. The Republican Party has left me (and, I would argue, you) no other option. It has clasped hands, like Thelma and Louise, with...

Asshole of the Month: Dr. Mehmet Oz

If it’s true that prostitution is the world’s oldest profession, what would be the second oldest? There are many possible candidates, but a good wager would be snake oil salesman. Humanity has always been afflicted with a terrifying array of diseases and maladies; before modern medicine, dealing with them was the province of witch doctors,...

Supreme Court Now Just Making Shit Up

The Republican radicals in robes go rogue, and this is how democracy dies. Literally. As I’ve long warned here, Republicans have now trashed hundreds of years of constitutional norms and Senate traditions to pack the U.S. Supreme Court with radical, extremist right-wingers. The nation and planet will pay the price for generations. In the past...

Asshole of the Month: John Eastman

It was a long, hot summer, with parched farmlands and cities across the U.S. breaking all-time heat records. The hottest city of all was the nation’s capital, blistering from the heat of the House Select Committee’s January 6 hearings. Now, with enough evidence presented to support criminal indictments, Trump is playing his usual tune when...

This Way Madness Lies

As your rights and freedoms are struck down, the corrupt Supreme Court majority is now anything but “conservative.” The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent extremist rulings were tragically predictable. We know this because at the end of its 2021 term a frequent guest on my syndicated radio program, The BradCast, forecast precisely what has now happened....

Asshole of the Month: Clarence Thomas

It’s often said that people get more conservative as they grow older. People who were party animals in their teens and 20s eventually get married, have children, pay a mortgage and worry about their children’s future as much as their own. But it doesn’t necessarily translate into political conservatism. Then there are the assholes who...

Unconventional Times

Historians and TV pundits are betting on a GOP sweep in November’s midterm elections. Don’t take the bet! In early May, when a Yahoo News/YouGov poll asked voters who they planned to vote for in this year’s midterm elections—a generic Republican candidate or a Democrat—they selected the Dem by a 5-percentage-point gap, 44% to 39%....

Asshole of the Month: Marco Rubio

During his failed Presidential campaign in 2016, U.S. Senator Rubio was nicknamed “Little Marco” by Trump. Trump loved dishing out folksy monikers to belittle opponents, mostly dumb schoolyard bully taunts, but he may have really hit the mark with Rubio. Not because Marco stands only 5-9, but because he seems to possess a genuine Napoleonic...

Asshole of The Month: Samuel Alito

Since the dawn of civilization, human progress has often been slow: two steps forward, one step back…repeat. And it’s always the old guard—the tight-assed priests or rich, Ivy league frat boys—who turn the clock back, usually because their privileges are threatened or they think all contemporary problems can be solved by returning to the romanticized...

The Corruption of Clarence Continues

The U.S. Supreme Court Justice and his wife have undermined the law of the land for decades… but we let them. With his Publisher’s Statements, Larry Flynt established a nearly 50-year tradition of punching well above his political weight. His commentaries often cut straight to the bone of the day’s politics, even as the American...

Asshole of the Month: Kevin Stitt

Oklahoma is the latest state reverting to the Dark Ages, when women had to use a coat hanger or seek a back-alley quack to get an abortion, thanks largely to Governor Kevin Stitt, another Bible-thumping Republican troglodyte. He signed off on the new bill that will charge any medical professional terminating a pregnancy at any...

Heat Pumps for Peace & Freedom!

It may not be sexy, but new electrified tech can help defeat a Russian tyrant and save the planet with the stroke of Joe Biden’s pen. Authoritarianism will not defeat itself. Years-long efforts—militarily, economically, morally—were required during World War II to end it in Germany, Italy, Japan and elsewhere. Decades of such efforts by democratic...

Chain of Fools

The pandemic exposed the U.S. supply chain debacle, but Wall Street greed and American stupidity perfected it. Finally! A story about “both sides” collectively fucking up. And lawmakers from both political parties will be needed to fix it, if that’s even possible. Corporate media doesn’t like to focus on it, but after a year of...

Asshole of the Month: Victoria Nuland

When Biden appointed Victoria Nuland to the third most powerful position in the State Department in January 2021, Medea Benjamin, the cofounder of CODEPINK and our premier antiwar activist, warned, “Most Americans have no idea that President-elect Biden’s pick for deputy secretary of state for political affairs is stuck in the quicksand of 1950s U.S.-Russia...
