Trump Baby Must Fly, Because Friends Don’t Let Friends Play Host to Lying Whoremongering Authoritarians
With his upcoming state visit to the U.K. to mark D-Day and our "steadfast and special relationship," Brits are preparing a fitting welcome to our Buffoon-In Chief. Over a million Londoners plan to protest "the orange hole," Baby Trump and a Trump robot tweeting on the toilet will appear, and over 50 lawmakers will boycott the visit of a “deluded, dishonest, xenophobic, narcissistic (serial) liar and cheat” to say, "Fuck off." But wait. Tell us how you really feel.

I Am More Than A Vessel: The Dystopia of Alabama
If you're not yet filled with murderous rage at the hubris of the 25 white men in Alabama who with a covert swipe of their ignorant entitled hands voted to effectively ban abortion because "every life is precious," how's this: Once born, those precious littles will live in a state that ranks 1st in infant mortality, 5th in childhood poverty and hunger, 2nd in gun deaths and 50th in public education. These are our bodies and our lives. Rage, vote and act. Yes, there are things you can do.

The Planet Is On Fucking Fire
With the planet now beset by the highest levels of atmospheric carbon in human history, no more Mister Nice Science Guy Bill Nye put in a memorably fiery appearance on Last Week Tonight to help John Oliver explain the grim facts of climate change and " drive the urgency home." He did so by dropping multiple F bombs, torching a globe, laying out what we can do, and snarling, " Nothing’s free, you idiots. Grow the fuck up...You’re adults now, and this is an actual crisis, got it?"

Palestinians Dare To Dream: Rejecting the "Prettier Face" of Apartheid
Arguing "no one wants to party with apartheid," activists are urging a boycott of glitzy, kitschy, Eurovision Song Contest 2019, to be held this week in Tel Aviv. The diversity-themed event is part of Israel's brazen effort to "art-wash" its crimes against Palestinians, on the date of the Nakba yet. Besieged Gazans who know better have planned their own Gazavision show. Even as Israel bombs, kills, imprisons them and "does everything to silence our voices," they vow "we will continue to sing."

A Cruel Disaster
As we celebrate our own close-to-home blessings this fraught Mother's Day, we honor thousands of mothers ripped from their kids by a barbarous regime impervious to the grief, terror, lifelong trauma they've inflicted. Of over 2,800 families, hundreds remain separated because inept thugs "lost" them. They must be reunited, a court says, never mind the thugs whining it's so hard: "The hallmark of a civilized society is measured by how it treats its people and those within its borders."

Ha Ha Good One: Trump's Vile Words and Viler Insinuations on Murdering Innocent Brown People
At a deranged rally in Florida, Trump jubilantly riled up his "psychopathic baying hogs" about the "invasion" of migrants until, when he asked, "How do you stop these people?" one fan gleefully yelled, "Shoot them!" Because in this unholy time and place you can utter abominations out loud without censure, Trump chortled, and the crowd roared. The Pied Piper had done his evil work. "I have not come into this world to make men better, but to make use of their weaknesses." - Adolf Hitler

On Kids In Cages (Still)
One year after the Billion Dollar Loser began his barbaric policy of kidnapping migrant children from their parents at the border, lawmakers awoke to an art installation on the Capitol Hill lawn featuring a caged child and an anguished mother reaching out to him. Advocates says its goal is to remind people of the illegally ongoing "reign of terror," assure suffering families "we haven't forgotten them," and warn Trump they won't "until every single one of them is reunited."

Liberty Is Crumbling
Talk about the sands of time. The winner of Texas Sandfest 2019 created this astounding image of Abraham Lincoln lamenting the state of the republic under the exquisitely apt rubric, "Liberty Is Crumbling." Argues British Columbia sculptor Damon Langlois, "We should realize that, and fight for it." Abe would likely agree: “America will never be destroyed from the outside," he wrote. "If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
