SCOTUS: Petition to Void November Election Moves Forward

SCOTUS election nullify

There’s a glimmer of hope for those of us who believe November’s presidential election was stolen by way of Russian hacking and think the election results should be voided. It’s not much of a glimmer, and the odds are nearly hands down that it’ll be extinguished after March 17, but for the time being we’ve got that glimmer. […]

Don’t Hide News to Keep Trump and the Trumpets From Seeing It

Stockholm riots trump

To defeat Trump, we need to know the whole story. We also need to hold true to our values. Sadly, these days many people get all of their news from the Internet. Sadder still, many only read news stories after being directed to them by their Facebook friends. Because of this, I take great care when posting a news link on Facebook to make sure I’m linking to the best source I can find. I also take great care to make sure I’m not linking to stories with exaggerated importance — the type of story that makes a mountain out of something rather meaningless that Trump and his minions […]

Is Trump Ready to Call Out the Guard to Round Up Undocumented Aliens?

National Guarg

So far it’s little more than an “official rumor” being downplayed by the Trump White House, but I’d keep a wary eye on this. The Associated Press this afternoon reported that the Trump gang has considered calling out the National Guard to round up people suspected of being in the U.S. illegally for deportation. The good news is that the current occupiers of the White House, and more importantly Homeland Security, have both denied the claim. In other words, it probably won’t happen — but I’d keep a wary eye […]

More Reasons Not to Support Hillary’s Bid for the Nomination

If Hillary’s connections with Wall Street bankers and her vote to help Bush find the phantom “weapons of mass destruction” isn’t enough to dissuade you from supporting her in the primary race, then here are some more reasons buried in her history. We’ll start with her years as First Lady. During her husband’s run for the White House back in ’92, a central campaign issue was healthcare reform. Indeed, during his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention that year, he brought up healthcare reform at least three times: Less […]

The Day They Took the Gai Out of Paree

Peace For Paris

All I know for sure right now is that it’s not a good day to be a Parisian. As I write this, Paris is under siege. Currently, the confused reports from the media are putting the death toll at “over 100,” a figure that’s “sure to rise” in this organized campaign of bombings, shootings and hostage taking. That this is a terrorist attack is abundantly clear. What isn’t clear is who is behind it. The smart money says Al Qaeda, a group that we’ve been told, until today, has been […]

Madison Kimrey Tells NC Gov, ‘This Is Not Leadership”

Editor’s note: When Joshua Kricker sent us a link to this video this afternoon, we were astonished. At center stage in this video, shot on October 28th at a “Moral Monday” protest in Raleigh, North Carolina’s capital, is 12 year old Madison Kimrey from Burlington, NC. She’s been in the news a lot recently, both locally and nationally, for publicly opposing NC’s Republican governor Pat McCrory’s support of voter suppression laws with poise and grace, not to mention intelligence. Huffington Post says, “This 12-year-old will restore your faith in the […]

A Great Video on the NSA to Share on Facebook

We found this today on Facebook, so we’re sharing it here so you can share it with all of your Facebook friends. httpv://youtu.be/2YsZoqwRnKE

Moving Three Minute Short From Thailand

Editor’s note: Yesterday we came across this three minute short, which evidently ran as a television commercial in Thailand, and were so moved by it that we’re passing it on to you. If everyone lived their lives like the people in this film, we figure we wouldn’t need laws or politics. Yup, it’s a pipe dream, but one worthy of consideration, we think. If you’re at work don’t worry. Go ahead and watch; it’s subtitled. You can keep the volume down. If you’re on Facebook, be sure to share so […]

The Simple Complex

We’re being confounded by the issues. The press, run by giant corporations by the way, wants you to believe the problems facing the United States are complicated. From the mass media we hear that we are a nation divided by a complex range of issues which they then fire at us like bullets from an Uzi, in a constant stream. We buy into this and define our stand on an issue by issue by issue basis. All you need do is take a look at your Facebook “newsfeed” to see […]

Could Carlin Be Talking About Syria?

The Other Sunday Funnies Welcome to a new feature on If This Be Treason. The Other Sunday Funnies isn’t what comes buried in the advertising section of your Sunday newspaper. Nor is it intended to mimic the clip feature that some of you have come to expect at the end of ABC’s This Week every Sunday morning, which basically just offers up some stand-up one liners from late night TV, mostly of a populist and reactionary nature–anything for a yuk you know. In our feature here, we’re hoping to bring […]
