Trump Skips Meeting With Nobel Recipients

By Michael Jay Tucker So last week we learned that Donald Trump is refusing to meet with the American scholars, scientists, and researchers who won this year’s Nobel Prize. It had been a long-standing tradition that the President would invite such individuals for a quiet little get-together to celebrate their achievements (and advertise American intellectual…

Après Trump, le déluge

By Michael Jay Tucker Just  a short time ago (November 7, to be exact) Think Progress ran an extremely troubling article. In White House admits Trump climate policies will destroy all U.S. coastal property, Joe Romm noted that the Administration’s own recently released climate-change report openly confessed that global warming is real, and that, perhaps…

Aid And Comfort To The Enemy

By Michael Jay Tucker Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason … What we have learned…oh!

First, I’ve been thinking about Trump’s vituperative attacks on the football players who knelt rather than stood during the national anthem at various games. The second thing I’ve been considering is how the same Trump has more…

Insane

By Michael Jay Tucker This will begin as a lament. It will end as a letter. I will address the world first. And then, afterwards, the N.R.A. The lament: as I write this on Monday morning, 2 October 2017, the world has learned of yet another massacre. For reasons wholly inexplicable, a man opened fire…

Shame, Football…A Ridiculous Man
