Who's Right About "freedom": Republicans or Americans?

Thom plus logo A spokesman for Donald Trump's campaign said, on CNN this morning, that they don't require people to wear masks at Trump rallies and events because "freedom."

Republicans have a bizarre notion of what that word means.

Will Democrats Turn Out Enough Votes this Fall to Overwhelm the Republican Anti-Democracy Machine?

Thom plus logo George W. Bush and Donald Trump both lost the popular vote, by a half-million and 3 million votes respectively, yet occupied the White House even though a majority of Americans didn't want them there.

Trump Rejects "Bringing Jobs Home" To Get Himself Reelected

Why Isn't PG&E Getting the Death Penalty?

Thom plus logo Pacific Gas and Electric, known as PG&E, just pled guilty to killing 84 American citizens.

How Should the Crime of Weaponizing a Virus for Political Purposes be Punished?

Will America Go Forward or Backward?

Thom plus logo On the same day Donald Trump announced that on Juneteenth he's going to go to Tulsa, Oklahoma, the home of one of America's most brutal and deadly riots where white people burned, looted and murdered African Americans in an iconic, historic and prosperous black community, to give a speech written by Stephen Miller, Trump supporters wearing Klan robes and hoods showed up in Nevada.

What Will It Take to Stop Republicans from Maintaining Structural Racism in Our Voting?

Fox, Tucker and Trump: Get Your Knees off Their Necks

Thom plus logo Following the lead of Donald Trump, it's increasingly appearing that the principal Republican electoral strategy this year is to try to frighten white people with threats of angry black people coming to get them. It's as if Roger stone is still advising Trump, the way he advised Nixon back in the day.
