The Divided States of America

Contrary to Rep. Lauren Boebart’s tweet on the morning of January 6, 2021, it is not 1776, the year of our Declaration of Independence during the American Revolutionary War. Rebels are not fighting for freedom from an oppressive foreign regime. It is not even 1861, the year that the American Civil War started. Soldiers are…

Terrorists, Not Protestors

Words shape public opinion and even define our perception of reality, so the language we choose to represent people and events matters.  The terrifying assault on our Capitol on January 6, 2021, has been described as protests that turned into riots, an insurrection, an armed standoff, and an attempted coup. Good choice of words. That’s…

“You’ll Submit”

Sending some silliness your way! I rewrote the lyrics to Hamilton’s “You’ll Be Back” and made a video mocking Trump’s refusal to concede.

Scary Voter Intimidation

Today on The Daily Rose, we look at the scary voter intimidation tactics the GOP are pulling, especially the motorcade in Texas, and how both Trump and Trump Jr. are encouraging them.

Election Fraud

Today’s episode of The Daily Rose outlines the ways the GOP are trying to undermine this extremely important election.

ICE Deportations

Starting on October 16th, ICE will be able to deport people immediately if they can’t prove—right there and then—they’ve been in the USA at least two years legally. Plus, some election updates on today’s episode of The Daily Rose.

Poetic Justice

Trump tests positive for COVID and undergoes experimental treatment, and America gets to see a humbled, grateful side of a man who’s terrified to die. While some wish him well, others say he brought it on himself. Lies from all sides, and the timeline just doesn’t add up.

2020 Debate Debacle

What an utter and complete nightmare last night’s debate was. A shitshow.. That word kept coming to mind during the debates last night, which I could barely stomach. Ever since, I’ve been angry, depressed, and feeling like I want to curl up in a dark corner and sleep until it’s all over.  That wasn’t a…

Illegal Search & Seizure

Portland police, now some of which are Federal Deputies, didn’t even wait for the protest to begin last night before accosting BLM protesters. Without cause or warrant, they searched citizens and seized their property. This after a weekend where police protected and safely escorted an armed paramilitary group called the Proud Boys. SIDE STORYI know…

Proud Boys Back in PDX

This weekend will be interesting to say the least. Terrifying and terrible, but interesting. The Proud Boys are coming back to Portland tomorrow.  Enrique Tarrio, the current leader of the “Western Chauvinist” group better known as the Proud Boys, has made many threatening remarks on social media about their planned event in Portland tomorrow, September…
