Why won’t the mainstream media tell the truth about racist ghoul Stephen Miller?

Stephen Miller -- like other Trump advisers such as Michael Anton, Sebastian Gorka and Steve Bannon -- is a white supremacist. Like other members of the so-called  alt-right (a collection of far-right extremists that includes neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan and other racists) Miller hides behind Trumpian slogans about making America great again and neutral-sounding terms such as "nationalism" and "populism" to advance a policy agenda where nonwhites are treated as second-class citizens and white people are empowered above all other groups.

People are starting to realize the GOP tax bill was a massive scam

President Donald Trump and the Republicans sold their slapdash effort at tax reform as a boon to the middle class. As the law goes into effect,  however, new polling suggests that most Americans are struggling to see any benefit at all in their paychecks.

Harvard psychiatrist Lance Dodes: Donald Trump is a “sociopath” and “a very sick individual”

In the age of television and now the internet, there are hundreds of thousands of hours of video and audio footage of every president widely  available. There are also rumors and leaks from within the White House  and other branches of government that can help paint a picture of a given president's moods, desires, thoughts and other behavior. What is to be done if this evidence collectively suggests that the president of the United States is mentally ill?

Donald Trump’s deep connections to dirty Russian money: The trail leads back more than 30 years

As Craig Unger's new investigative report makes clear, Russian mob money financed Trump's business for years. Unger makes clear that he can find no evidence that Trump was ever involved in criminal activity, or knew exactly where the money pouring into his buildings was coming from. He didn’t need to know or want to; if nothing else Trump has finely honed survival instincts. But Unger also documents that criminals and oligarchs lived in and ran illegal activities out of Trump properties, including Trump Tower in Manhattan, for more than 30 years.

How the Hillary Clinton campaign deliberately “elevated” Donald Trump with its “pied piper” strategy

An email recently released by the whistleblowing organization WikiLeaks shows how the Clinton campaign and Democratic Party bear direct responsibility for propelling the bigoted billionaire to the White House. In its self-described “pied piper” strategy, the Clinton campaign proposed intentionally cultivating extreme right-wing presidential candidates, hoping to turn them into the new “mainstream of  the Republican Party” in order to try to increase Clinton’s chances of winning.

Why Sanders supporters cannot back Gary Johnson: His libertarianism is antithetical to the senator’s Democratic socialism

Yes, there are similarities between Sanders and Johnson — but their political philosophies are miles apart. For example Gar Johnson doesn't think government should enforce income equality, but he is for equal opportunity. But these ideas are diametrically opposed!

Maybe Donald Trump has really lost his mind: What if the GOP frontrunner isn’t crazy, but simply not well? – Salon.com

We have become so accustomed to these sorts of ramblings that we don’t really register them as anything more than standard nonsensical Trump-speak—a pattern of speech we have seen crop up across the GOP in recent years, most notably in Palin’s gibberish.  But I urge you to re-read the exchange above and register the range of nonsense—the lack of basic grammar, the odd syntax, the abrupt shift in topic, the disconnect from reality, the paranoia, and the seeming inability to even grasp the question.
