It’s not surprising that Floyd Ray Roseberry is the latest angry white man to inflict his pain on the American public. We’re currently witnessing a surge in Trump-inspired Terrorism in the United States (TITUS.) Roseberry briefly brought Washington DC to a halt when he threatened to blow up what he…

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that FOX News’ no. 1 neo-Nazi Tucker Carlson recently broadcast a show from Hungary. After all, Hungary is leaning toward fascism under the rule of strongman Viktor Orban.

Like a bad case of herpes, former President Donald Trump refuses to go away. Over the weekend, he held one of his meaningless rallies in Iowa. Because if there are rubes to juice, Trump will be there. …

I always thought there was not something quite right about Andrew Yang. The tech CEO burst onto the political scene in 2020 when he somehow appeared in the Democratic primary.

I like the ideas that he talked about, such as the danger of technology destroying jobs and his concept about…

I admit that I’ve become somewhat of a political book junkie during the Trump era. If there’s a political book out, I’ll probably read it. I recently read back-to-back books about the Trump administration and, after that, I had to read a sports biography to cleanse my mental palate. …
