America’s dangerous gullibility
Over the years Donald Trump has created the appearance that he is a successful business man. While he always seemed to have sufficient funds to afford an expensive standard of living, a recent report by the New York Times caused the collapse of that grandiose image.

Impeachment — an involved process
The ultimate device to remove a flawed president is the next election, but four years between elections can be a long time to wait. The Founding Fathers anticipated earlier removal, but impeachment is wisely not so simple that it can become a normal strategy for reversing an unfortunate election result.

Here’s how Trump beat Mueller
Trump did not tweet, rant, shout or finger point Special Counsel Robert Mueller the instant he delivered his report to Attorney General William Barr. Trump, in fact, said nothing. He didn’t have to. He won. He won with his three-year relentless and ruthless ramming into the public and media lexicon the words and the notion, “no collusion,” “witch hunt” and “hoax,” about the Mueller investigation.

Opinion
Trump will likely serve out his term
Trump will have a united, nasty, manipulative, pit bull attack, GOP behind him, a king’s ransom campaign war chest, and the continued slavish infatuation of the mass media with any and every silly, insipid, inflammatory tweet and crack from and by him.

Cohen’s claim that Trump is a racist is hardly the revelation of the ages
Trump’s aim is to reassure his angry white base that he’ll continue to be their solid firewall in the Oval Office against entitlement-happy Democrats, and supposed government hand out-leeching minorities.

The debt we owe Haitians
It is up to right-thinking Americans to stand up to Trump and the cynical, cowardly senators and congressional representatives who cater to his attempts at despotism. It is time to stand up and say “No!” to the deportation of Haitians and others living in the U.S. with Temporary Protected Status.

Making a case against ‘Individual-1’ stick
Federal prosecutors in New York brand Trump “Individual-1.” They say he made illegal hush money payments and had illegal dealings with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential campaign through his indicted attorney, Michael Cohen. In a client-attorney contract and relationship, attorneys are strictly prohibited from taking any action on their client’s behalf without their permission, agreement and direction. Yet, Trump’s legal mouthpiece so far is the one who has taken the fall for Trump’s crimes.

Warren: Democrats can take power in Nov.
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren told an audience of local Democratic activists Saturday that the party has an opportunity to retake control of the House and Senate in the 2018 midterm elections.

Opinion
Warren is the only Democrat who can beat Trump
The Democrat that goes head to head with Trump will have to do something that no other Democratic presidential candidate has ever really had to do in a presidential race. That’s be willing to swap every dig, putdown, and insult that Trump will hurl at his opponent back at him, expose his lies, phoniness and shallowness and steal some of his media thunder.
