Trump Is Over If You Want It
Hey peeps, good news! The tinpot tyrant resigned on a napkin! He caved to a women-led, multi-racial grassroots resistance - sippy-cup sit-ins! a floof blockade! - and fled to Yalta, leaving Pence to a “clipped-duck” term as progressives celebrated 64 groundbreaking bills, from Green New Deal to Medicare for All. Sigh. In fact, the news comes from a fake Washington Post, aka The Yes Men, complete with action guide and “blueprint to help us reclaim our democracy.” Let it be, please.

As With Any Animal That Is Rabid: Bobby Rush Is Really Not Down With Steve King Or White Supremacy
We're glad that after Steve King's nine terms of racist vitriol, his GOP colleagues finally noticed he's scum and stripped him of power. Still, their disingenuous claim of having "no tolerance for such positions" is put to shame by fire-and-brimstone former Black Panther and Illinois Rep. Bobby Rush, whose language on King's "despicable comments" is as radical as you can get within Congress' genteel confines: "As with any animal that is rabid, Steve King should be set aside and isolated.”

Trash In Aisle 1600
Make it stop. When the NCAA championship Clemson Tigers came to be "honored" at the White House, they were met with tables of cold Big Macs and congealed french fries "catered" by the tacky POS in residence, who bragged it was "good stuff." "Nothing says full-circle-Americana like a white supremacist in a house built by enslaved Africans (hosting) predominantly black Clemson athletes exploited by the NCAA industrial complex (being) fed fast food." Word.

I Wrote My Way Out: A Jubilant Hamilton Comes to Puerto Rico
Marking the 264th birthday of the "ten-dollar Founding Father without a father," Lin-Manuel Miranda brought his extraordinary "Hamilton" to a still-ravaged Puerto Rico in a fundraising initiative to "help bring the artistic pulse of the community back to life.” A fierce, Puerto-Rican descended Trump critic, Miranda has long wanted to do the show there to complete the "poetic circle" of the Caribbean-born Hamilton's life. "Our stories are important," he says. "Arts are what help us feel whole."

Whoah. In Time Travel Marvel, Slimy Grifter Walter Trump Tried To Scare People Into Building Bogus Wall 60 Years Before Slimy Grifter Donald Trump Did
Because it isn't weird enough the racist buffoon is throwing a hostage-taking fit to build a wall most Americans and all the evidence say isn't needed, surreal life is imitating improbable art. A 1958 TV episode of CBS' "Trackdown" featured a traveling con man who tells a town they'll all die from a meteor explosion unless he saves them - with a wall. “I am the only one!" cries Walter Trump. "I can build a wall (that) nothing will penetrate." Its ending is great: He's arrested, then shot.

50 Million Of Us
There were potent responses aplenty to last night's "stream of lies" and "racist pablum" oozing from a once-sacrosanct Oval Office - Ocasio-Cortez: "What we are seeing right now is death" - but we'll add one roof-raising amen from Jenifer Lewis, Brandy and Roz Ryan. Their fiery version of "In These Streets," first released as Trump took office and started babbling about his wall, calls for resistance and echoes Nina Simone: "An artist's duty is to reflect the times."

Angela Davis Standing With Angela: Because Freedom Is A Constant Struggle
The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute has come under righteous fire after caving to Zionist pressure and rescinding a decision to give its highest award to activist, academic, black icon, native daughter and BDS supporter Angela Davis, who's spent decades fighting for the civil rights they supposedly represent. Supporters of Davis, who sparked the ire of the pro-Israel lobby, had one message for suddenly craven institute members: Palestinian rights are human rights.

This Girl Is On Fire
Talk about your welcome sea change. After suffering through eight years of a racist, dimwitted, bellicose mini-Trump, Mainers celebrated the swearing-in of our new governor Janet Mills, a smart, competent Democrat who promises to expand health coverage and fight climate change. The icing on her inaugural cake: The two immigrant girls who brought down the house singing "Girl On Fire." Mills was right on: It is in fact a "brand new day," and about time.

Say What?
If you were hoping our lunatic village idiot grew a brain or soul for the new year: Sorry. After weeks of sulking around the White House, he just held a deeply wacko Cabinet meeting. He made up numbers, imagined being king of Europe, loved him some walls/wheels, rewrote the history of Afghanistan and described an Iran meeting with handsome generals "like from a movie." Also Game of Thrones! Best summary: "Trump's hingedness level was not high today."

Dear Sisters, We Fought Together
One year ago, 300 high-profile actresses partnered with activists to launch Time's Up, a movement to fight systemic sexual harassment in every workplace with the tagline, "No more silence. No more waiting. No more tolerance..." It has now raised over $22 million for its legal defense fund and helped almost 4,000 people fight sexual discrimination. For New Year's, they released a powerful, celebratory video. 2018, they declare, "was just the beginning."
