The World “Sucks” Because of Trump: the War on Transgender Military Personnel

Wait. Close your eyes. Is it just me or do you feel it too? Ask yourself, what is the source of this horrendous weight? The evisceration of environmental safeguards? The withdrawal from the Paris Accord? The only answer is—the world literally”sucks” because of Donald Trump.

Opinion | Donald Trump’s World War Zed: the Imagined Crisis at the Southern Border

It may have been the caffeine that kept me tossing in bed, heart pounding between the sheets. Then the sudden horror—the vision of hordes of illegals climbing walls, pillaging, murdering! Sadly, it wasn’t the caffeine, but rather the incarnation of Trump’s border “crisis” coupled with the immutable fact that Donald J. Trump continues to lie. Continue reading “Opinion | Donald Trump’s World War Zed: the Imagined Crisis at the Southern Border”

OPINION | Why Trump’s Alternate Reality is about to Vanish

Pick any half decent science fiction film. They always muck with the timeline—Back to the Future, Star Trek, Terminator. The premise is always the same—something catastrophic occurs in the distant past, the hero must return to fix it, and when the pivotal moment arrives, the hero must choose a different path in order to repair the timeline. Trump has proven that he does not watch science fiction, as he habitually repeats the same feckless loop resulting in a presidential timeline that can never be repaired.

Opinion | Heather Heyer and the price of justice

In Trump’s long tunnel of madness, Charlottesville is but a speck in the rearview mirror. But many will recall the incident—the pain, the anger, the sudden sense of helplessness and loss that will not soon be forgotten. Still, some may argue that as Canadian living thousands of miles away, I’m on the fringe. No, I didn’t know Heather Heyer, but both our nations appreciate the stand she took, and the ultimate price that she paid. Continue reading “Opinion | Heather Heyer and the price of justice”

MINI OP-ED| Where Have the Children Gone?

The Trump administration has pulled one of its most successful vanishing acts to date—they have disappeared the migrant children from their parents. To date, the children remain missing. Trump may argue that family separation is the price of flaunting rules at the border, but he is not one to speak as he continues to obfuscate the tenets of natural justice in his struggle to avoid the Russia investigation, and to preserve his presidency.  I’m quite sure his alleged affair with Stormy Daniels broke at least a moral rule, if not campaign finance laws.   Continue reading “MINI OP-ED| Where Have the Children Gone?”
