Poor “Conservatives”

William B. Turner Sarah Hickabee Sanders allegedly stated today that Democrats have to decide if they love the U.S. more than they hate Trump. Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas reportedly accused Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee of “shameful political behavior.” Life is hard for “conservatives” in the United States. Anyone who chooses…

Who Cares if Cohen Flips?

William B. Turner Since the FBI raided the office, home, and hotel room of Michael Cohen, the Donald’s personal lawyer, recently, everyone has been aflutter over whether he will flip on the president. That is, will he cooperate with the prosecution in hopes of getting a more lenient sentence for whatever crimes he has committed?…

All Things are Possible Through Jesus

William B. Turner The Christians are absolutely right. Christianity exercises nothing like the hold on U.S. culture it used to, even as recently as the end of World War II. Praise Jesus. We can discern this development easily from the puzzlement so many people are expressing at the consistent support among Christians for the Donald.…

Of Course Christians Support Trump. He’s Theirs.

William B. Turner Oh, lawd, another of these tedious stories about how puzzling it is that “evangelicals” still support the Donald. Um, looked at the history of Christianity lately?

At least we can hope. We saw some evidence…

Turner Multiple reports lately about how the Trump administration is moving funds away from addressing teen pregnancy in effective ways into “abstinence only” “sex education,” which multiple studies have shown is entirely ineffective at best, harmful at worst. This is the epitome of the Trump administration. It perfectly exemplifies the point that Trump…

Capitalism 102

William B. Turner Many people are busy discussing the absurd claim from the Republicans that their gigantic tax cut would result in increased wages for workers. Of course not. What a stupid claim. It’s really pretty amazing how little officials from the so called Party of business understand about how businesses actually work. For profit…

Donald Trump, Model Christian

William B. Turner “Megachurch Pastor Says Trump Has God’s Approval to Start Nuclear War.” Huh. That’s interesting.  So says the article here, among many. We know that lots of good liberal and progressive Christians are loath to look too closely at the history of Christianity and see that it either caused or completely failed to…

Hannity? Ethics? Please

William B. Turner Suddenly lots of people are clutching their pearls at the revelation that Sean Hannity was the unindicted, er, unidentified third client that the federal judge overseeing the raid on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s office forced the name of out of Cohen’s lawyers – when your lawyer needs a lawyer, you know you’re…

How Stupid Do You Have to Be?

William B. Turner It had been a while, but the air strikes on Syria produced the most recent example of a highly amusing phenomenon: the person who was stupid enough to go all in on the Donald, only to suffer bitter disappointment when The Mercurial One changed direction abruptly and did exactly what the worshiper…
