For the first time in history, a Black woman is sitting on the bench as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Ketanji Brown Jackson making her debut today, asking more questions than Clarence Thomas did in the entire decade leading up to Antonin Scalia's death.

Nicole is out today, so in the wake of all the attention on Breitbart so-called news, we're replaying her "debate" with Andrew Breitbart from Oct 7, 2008 on Marc Germain's TalkRadioOne.com
Today is our last full day living in a semi-sane nation. Tomorrow at 12 noon, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, and I'm sick to my stomach. I know most of my listeners will not be watching the spectacle tomorrow. I will so you don't have to. Wish me luck. Howie Klein joined me on today's show, as he does each Thursday, and told us that the number of Democratic members of Congress boycotting tomorrow's swearing in is up to 72! The Blue America PAC set up an Act Blue page for [...]

Today, Donald Trump (D'ump, as I like to abbreviate it), held his first quasi-press conference since July. I say "quasi" because he only took a handful of questions, peppered it with statements from his incoming press secretary, his sidekick Mike Pence, and his attorney Sherri Dillon who [...]
That's what I spent the last four days looking at, which truly helped me unplug for a while. The picture below is the view of the house if you turn around. It's my sister's house on Lake Weir in Oklawaha, FL, just outside of Ocala. My favorite part of the house is right there... just to the left of the tree. See the wooden gate? That's an outdoor shower! As you shower, you look out at the lake (top picture). Not too bad, huh? And we did some hiking! And went to Silver Springs, and an actual Drive-In, [...]
916 million USD prime dollars. Of IRS deductions that could last until his Trump Squad of lawyers cannot run out the election clock any further. The New York Times' Susanne Craig was gifted with much of this info by snail mail … three whole juicy pages on Trump's 1995 taxes… Bouyah! An old school reporter's request (and some to-be-determined hands of 'fate') brought her the Get of the season. She aptly titled the revelatory article published on Sunday, "The Time I Found Donald Trump’s Tax Records in My Mailbox" A manila envelope led to old-style investigative journalism involving a [...]
