Political Nation USA

If It's Political News, it's Politcal Nation



I'm passionately for truth and fairness. I dream of an America that cares enough about helping people that it eliminates waste and corruption, pork barrel spending and win-at-all-costs political wrangling. I am passionately against double standards, greed, hypocrisy, propaganda, and exclusion. It is my goal to point this out where I find it. I write for

Fire and fury such as the world has never seen

Trump should suffer permanent loss of credibility for these actions. The only thing that is worse than the loss of US credibility for failure to act is the catastrophe that would result from acting.


A Response to the Religious Right, the American Taliban

Our government was built to allow people of all faiths and inclinations to live together. It was specifically to avoid the persecution from other Christian faiths. The United States can, of course, through the political process change any facet of our government. But it should be clearly understood that the attempts to put religion above our civil government are contrary to the basis of our Constitution and the spirit of our country.

Do the investigations matter – part 2: Pardons and discrediting the DOJ.

Now it is clear that we also have to worry about the presidential pardon as a way out. He wants to know if he can pardon all the people of interest in the Russia-gate affair. He wants to pardon Flynn, Manafort, everyone in his family, and more amazingly, himself.

Russian election interference and Republican reactions

If you track administration or republican rhetoric on Russia gate, it goes like this: No one in the campaign ever talked with a Russian. Oops, at least one campaign staff member actually worked for the Russians, but he left quickly, and he was a minor player anyway. Campaign manager  is a minor role. Nothing there.

More on Wealth-care, GOP tax cuts and trickle-down economics – Robbing from the poor to give to the rich.

This whole tax cuts for the rich thing is transparently wrong as a means to stimulate the economy. If it were about tax cuts to business, that would at least be an argument worth having. But tax cuts to rich individuals? That's ridiculous.

The AHCA bait and switch. Why the ACA was better, and how it is different.

The AHCA eliminates government expense by leaving people on their own, hoping things will work out, and giving money back to billionaires. Let's be clear: the only thing republican leadership cares about is paying back their backers.

The White House and the Department of Justice: conclusion – Money Laundering

Hopefully you noticed that the scale of this problem is in the billions of dollars each year. Many, many lawyers, bankers, and real estate moguls are involved in this. Even when they are paid only small percentages in these transactions, their profit is in the hundreds of millions. Why was Jared Kushner talking to Russians during the campaign?

The White House and the Department of Justice: Part 2 – Obstruction of Justice

There is a fitting irony that Trump's tweets are both part of the offense with which he is charged and what is destroying his own legal defense. All Americans should look at this behavior and ask themselves: "If he can't control himself under these circumstances, and isn't smart enough to ask for help, then how can he possibly be an effective leader?"
