It's becoming very clear to anyone with a mind that Donald Trump and his campaign worked directly with the Kremlin to get the upper hand in this election. I sincerely hope the Senate continues investigating this, because Trump deserves to rot in a prison for the rest of his life for treason.

The New York Times is out with a story tonight which is little short of astonishing on the eve of a presidential inauguration. From the Times article ... "American law enforcement and intelligence agencies are examining intercepted communications and financial transactions as part of a broad investigation into possible links between Russian officials and associates of President-elect Donald J. Trump, including his former campaign chairman Paul...

If you read one article today, read this one. Central Phoenix has a major homeless issue (along with the rest of the city). It's time for our government officials and citizens to stop with the harmful assumptions that it's simple to "pick yourself up by the bootstraps" and get off the street - the services that folks assume are provided are actually extremely depleted and at times, impossible for some to take advantage of. How can you get a job when you have to be at the homeless shelter by 4:00 PM just to get a bed for the night? Or, if you miraculously get a job, how can you maintain it when you work clothes are stolen from you while you're asleep, that is, if you can find a place to sleep at all? Not to mention if you're a homeless person with a felony record, which automatically disqualifies you from over 50% of jobs and most low-cost housing in the Valley?

We need to have a discussion about funding immediately available housing for those on the street that want to take advantage of that. Homeless individuals are a huge drain on American taxpayers because of their increased likelihood of incarceration, among other factors. From personal experience, being homeless is one of the most soul crushing, terrifying situations that one can experience. I could never get used to it. Just walking the street at night, endlessly, hoping that where you lay down isn't a place that someone will call the police, or worse, a place where some psycho might rape or kill you. The next time you see someone homeless when you are out, have some compassion and empathy for that person - because the situation they are in is something far more dangerous, difficult, and soul-crushing that you can ever imagine.

Vladmir Putin's interest in our election seems clearer now: he knows Hillary Clinton is not a pushover and will not be intimated by pathetic glamour shots and peacock feather fluffing propaganda when it comes to keeping American interests first worldwide.

Trump's fanboyish obsession with Putin already called into question his ability to do so. But be real. How could you ever trust #KremlinDon to do the same?

#ComradeTrump #NeverTrump #TrumpPutin
Behind the allegations of a Russian hack of the DNC is the Kremlin leader's fury at Clinton for challenging the fairness of Russian elections.

It's a shame (and kind of pathetic) that more media outlets are not taking the same stand for the sake of the future of our nation. The MSM played the biggest role in getting fascism this close the White House with the non stop coverage they gave nearly every childish insult or insane policy statement this grifter made - not to mention the tacit consent and general acceptance of the pathogical lying and bigoted dog whistles that are a daily hallmark of Leader Trump's dark carnival. Neutrality is morally reprehensible when this fact is so clear: Donald Trump is a xenophobic nativist, an extreme danger to the freedoms and institutions our nation was founded on - he will have no concern with governing with the consent of the people - America's first despot and dictator.

The Washington Post pulls no punches.
He is unfit for the presidency and cannot be endorsed.

Using words like "oblivious" and "indifferent" give far too much of the benefit of the doubt to a proven nativist and racist who is far too comfortable with anti-Semitic dog whistles to be considered anything but an out and out fascist. Call a spade a spade - and call out Chump for who he really is.

A really good take by Josh Marshall regarding the challenges we face as a country - and as liberals - over the next four years. In a nutshell:

"I think many of us look back at critical momentous moments in our history, the Civil War, World War II, the Civil Rights Movement and other comparable passages in the country's history and think, what would I have done? Where would I have been? Well, now's your moment to find out. We are living in interesting times. We should embrace it rather than feel afraid or powerless. We have a fabric of 240 years of republican government behind us. We have the tools we need."

----
It was a good read because this Trump administration is the first time in our country's history that there is a chance that our essential system of government - our republic and our say in how this country works - may be threatened and taken away permanently. The American people aren't used to this type of thing - they're lazy. Too lazy to even acknowledge this possibility yet. But if Trump turns into a despot - and there's every sign he will - then you will have to make a choice. Do you stand by and watch the end of the real United States - or do you stand and fight, no matter what it takes, to prevent a corrupt megalomaniac from destroying the thing that this country prides itself in most: our freedom. I am never pro-war - but this is the deal: if we are about to lose our rights, freedoms and ability to affect change in government, then I will be the first one on the battle lines in a second American revolution. I love this country far too much to see it ruined by some dipshit with orange skin and a toupee.

#StandAgainstTrump #NeverMyPresident
Let me share a few thoughts on this moment and what it portends in the days and years ahead. Optimism is not primarily a prediction but an ethic, a philosophy, a way of confronting the world. I know many people are not simply disappointed about today's events but gripped by a deep apprehension and worry. This is natural, logical. What we are seeing transpire, because of the person and character of the man who is about to become President, is unli...

Comrade Trump is right. Booker doesn't measure up to the RNC's lineup, which was headlined by the Trump family and Rudy Guliani's reanimated political corpse. Why didn't he have Putin speak?

"If Cory Booker is the future of the Democratic Party, they have no future!" Trump tweeted after the senator's speech.

The GOP made history at their convention this year - from Pam Bondi to Sheriff Joe, the Trump family and pyramid scheme hustlers, this was no doubt the griftiest convention in American history - and the first ever nationwide political hustle to be broadcast live on TV.

It's all fun to joke about what a buffoon this guy is. He's also got a roughly 1 out of 3 chance of becoming the leader of the free world - and at that point, unapologetically and casually tossing around fascist/anti-Semitic be symbolism in a way not seen since Germany in the late 1920's - stops being funny and should start being downright terrifying. I sincerely hope we realize how serious this is before it becomes too late.

I've been saying this from the beginning. For whatever reason, I think in large part that there will be a segment of the human population who will believe in such illogic madness. It's so easy to blame people who look or have different customers than our. ots hard to imagine that the true problem is the politicians themselves!
