On Monday, Donald Trump literally made the United States an empty chair when it comes to climate change. He and his aides offered up lame excuses. Then rump voiced an even lamer view of what should matter in the wake of this global environmental crisis. I talk about it in my most recent article for Torchlight Media.
Torchlight Media: Trump’s Empty Chair on Climate Change
Ken Cuccinelli recently mutilated of meaning behind the Statue of Liberty and “The New Colossus” to justify his racist policies. White nationalists right now sit in the highest seats of power in the land, pushing their horrid agendas and vandalizing our history to give them a sense of legitimacy. I broke down what’s going on. Check it out at Torchlight Media.

I wrote this on my Facebook wall, inspired by media and punditry’s continued silence on where we are now:
WARNING: POTENTIALLY UPSETTING DISCUSSION
Violated. Yesterday I felt broken. Today, I realize that a big part of that is I feel violated. I have had so many emotions and thoughts churning inside me regarding the most recent mass shootings, but this one had to come out.
When it comes to the immigration practices at the southern border, like many people, I find myself heart-heavy and mind overflowing with too many thoughts, all fighting to come out. In such circumstances, I can’t always find the words. Yet, I feel compelled to try. Here are the ones I managed. If they move you, if you feel they are useful, or if you feel they are effective in any way, please share and spread the word.

In the final installment of my series for Torchlight Media about Trump as a narcissistic bully, I talk about what such behavior from the top means for our society and ways we can address it.
“The national edifice is on fire. Every man who can carry a bucket of water, or remove a brick, is wanted.”
-Frederick Douglass, 1861
Some thoughts on Trump’s recent declaration of national emergency to build his border wall.
Calling President Trump a narcissistic bully means little if we don’t understand how to apply the terms to our analysis of Trump’s behavior. The media keeps falling down in this area, although it may in part be because they are also the bully’s victims here. Hence, part 2 of my series talking about Trump as a narcissistic bully at Torchlight Media:
Please take a look. In understanding how the media is not properly applying the narcissistic bully analytical model to Trump’s behavior, we better understand the model ourselves.
Narcissism and bullying, and stupidity fueled ignorance; that’s was Donald Trump is made of.
Let me tell you a little story.
