BIG TRUMP SCIENCE: AMERICANS ARE WORLD'S ONLY HUMANS


According to top anthropologists at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, only United States citizens – unique among any other people on planet Earth – possess qualities identifying them as true Homo sapiens.

"IF YOU MEET THE PRESIDENT ON THE ROAD, KILL HIM": THE MAD ACTIVIST GOES ALL BUDDHIST


DEAR TRUMP DIARY,

7:34 a.m., Tuesday. I just signed another online petition. One of the 250 social-change outfits I connect with shot me an urgent text 45 seconds ago, so away I clicked.... How often must I do this, before I die of despair?

Be Vewy, Vewy Quiet, Good Old Boys Are Hunting


In a recent New York Times column titled "White Male Victimization Anxiety," Charles Blow described how President Trump publicly apologized to Justice Brett Kavanaugh for "the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure" at the hands of Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed that Kavanaugh had tried to rape her. Blow also cited Senator Lindsey Graham's own plucky #MeToo moment during the Kavanaugh hearings, when Graham proclaimed, “I’m a single white male from South Carolina, and I’m told I should shut up."

For Brett Kavanaugh: Beer and Sympathy


Dear Brett,

Now that you’re a confirmed Supreme Court justice, it must be a huge relief to realize that whatever you did or did not do to Christine Blasey Ford never really mattered.

TRUMP, LYNCH, AND WHO WE CALL ANIMALS: A SAFETY ALERT


Did you hear Trump call undocumented immigrants animals? It's stirring up – rightly – a lot of concern. Among humans, "animal" is the essential, go-to word to deprive people of their humanity. It's the permission some people give themselves to ridicule, enslave, and commit genocide against other people. "Animal" is a term we read as a danger signal, even in a society such as ours, which was built on ridicule, enslavement, and genocide. And "animal" is often used by law enforcement to describe anyone accused of assaulting a police officer. Interesting, how we've let this one go.

HERMAN BELL AND THE FUTURE OF NEW YORK PAROLE


Only a couple of years ago, the New York State Parole Board was a draconian gimmick to keep people in prison – regardless of how they had grown and changed over their years inside – until they died of systemic abuse or neglect or, if they lived long enough, old age.

HERMAN BELL GAINS PAROLE: CUOMO AND DE BLASIO LOSE ETHICS


Dear Bill De Blasio and Andrew Cuomo,

     You, as governor and mayor – New York State's most powerful liberals – have argued constantly. I, along with millions of NY civilians, have endured years of your snark-attacks and antler-locks. Recently, it got really bad, when you, Governor Cuomo, insinuated that you, Mayor De Blasio, might be in league with Vladimir Putin to persuade Cynthia Nixon to run for governor.

DISRUPT J20 AND THE REAL COST OF VIOLENCE


Donald Trump's presidential inauguration on January 20 in Washington, DC last year is something that most of us who read rags like this try to forget. The arrest of over 230 protesters at "Disrupt J20" that same day in DC, and the charging of 194 of them with felony rioting – allegedly for their part in setting fires, hurling rocks, and creating $100,000 in property damage – is something we need to remember...
