Trump Free

After more than a hundred days of the Biden presidency, Donald Trump seems like a faded memory. Or perhaps a nightmare we have all woken up from. It is amazing how quiet he has been since his banning back in January by the social media platforms he was using. Maybe traditional media is finding things […]

Inauguration Day Reflections

Some random thoughts as Joe Biden is sworn in today as President of the United States. I’ve been thinking about the day, and the challenges the new president faces. Each paragraph is a stand-alone today – read as many or as few as you like. Joe Biden assumes office as President of the United States […]

Why Trump Lost

Yes, they are still counting the votes, but even Donald Trump knows in his heart he lost the 2020 US presidential election. Not because it was fraudulent but for one reason: COVID-19. There are three reasons COVID-19 was fatal to the Trump presidency. He might have managed re-election despite one or two of them, but […]

The Next President

The election results tell us Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States. Are you sure about that? And I’m not talking about the ongoing legal challenges the Trump team has mounted to try and overturn the results. I don’t see much hope for success there. Which may mean that Joe Biden […]

While The World Waits…

I spent most of Wednesday with CNN playing in the background as I worked. I wanted to know who was the winner in the US presidential election. I still want to know who won, but I am not listening anymore. I’ll find out when an announcement is made. Maybe Friday. At first I thought Donald […]

When It Is All Over…

I’m writing this shortly after midnight in the eastern US, and there is no winner yet in the American presidential election. There may not be by the time you read this. I have great respect for the Republican party’s ability, as the minority party, to get their supporters to the polls. That is how Donald […]

Voting Day – Again

Americans go to the polls today to choose a president. I don’t have a vote, which is just as well since I’m not impressed with the choices. Are you? Four years ago, when Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, I posted this plea on election day. I was going to write something new today, nothing has […]

The Last Debate

I won’t be watching tonight – it’s a time zone thing. I’ll catch the highlights in the morning. Maybe. Tonight’s second, and last US presidential debate is crucial.  The rules have changed. It will be tougher for Donald Trump to talk over Joe Biden like he did in the first debate. And, given social distancing […]

Gotcha!?

Several years ago a friend introduced me to the satirical Babylon Bee website. Unfortunately, Donald Trump’s friends didn’t tell him about it. Maybe that is due to a lack of friends with a sense of humor. Or of friends who would frequent a Christian site such as the Bee. Whatever the reason, last week Trump […]

Highly Debatable?

It’s an event everyone usually ignores. Except for tonight. Once every four years the candidates running for vice -president of the United States square off against each other in a televised debate. Other than political junkies, no-one watches. Being vice-president is a thankless task in America. You have no real job description; you just have […]
