Most recently published stories in The Swamp.
There are times when we just know when something is wrong. Donald Trump is the epitome of wrong. In everything he does, he is wrong. Sadly, in his own mind, he is always right. Nothing can persuade him he is making America look stupid and petty in the eyes of the world.
Big Structures, Small Politicians
How many times have heard politicians say?...."We would love to have more....(fill in your own subject) but we just don't have the finances to spend at the moment!"
Voter ID Laws Are Disenfranchisement Politics As Usual
Three to five million illegal votes and Jeff Sessions our new attorney general, the voter fraud issue is going on full alert in the Trump Administration. But the concern amounts to nothing more than the Republicans taking out their playbook and putting disenfranchising politics in full gear. Their constituency eager to engage and vilify, historical facts demonstrate that political parties do not steal elections by getting random people to vote twice.
Infamous Presidential Sex Scandals
Presidential sex scandals are something of an American past time. These affairs have been going on as far back as Thomas Jefferson's presidency, though with the advent of paparazzi and the digital age, the leaders of the free world have found it increasingly more difficult to hide their scandals.

The Other Side of the Pond
It’s not the hair which worries me. It’s rather beautiful in a way - a candy floss creation of sweeping whirls and razor edges, re-created every day. It must take hours. It’s not the complexion either - that brilliant tangerine so loud it makes you want to reach for a pair of shades. No - I can cope with all that. And I’m not worried by the cupid’s bow mouth, or that curiously phallic thing he does with a pointed finger.
The Neo-Nazi Propaganda Machine
We are allowing too much freedom of pushing his boundaries to this president. Point blank. Between his executive orders and the most important thing to me to express in this article, his Neo-Nazi Propaganda Machine. Little Twitler has become a lying and verbally demeaning sensation as well as one of the best jokes on the internet.
Tantrums and Trump
When a person takes up a position of power and responsibilities, one expects a certain manner. A way of putting people at ease and making them feel as if they are safe and cared about.
The Evictionist Position on Abortion
Around 2 years ago I was pro-life. I believed simply that the fetus was an individual with human DNA independent of the mother, and that it is immoral for us as humans to judge when someone counts as a human being along their development. The gray area of whether the fetus is a human being or not must fall on the side in favor of the fetus, because if we are wrong we are committing murder. I still believe all of that.
Eugene Jarecki and the American Way of War
With Americans dreaming that change begins and ends on Pennsylvania Avenue, Filmmaker Eugene Jarecki provides the real home address of its implementation and gives definition to what the word should mean to Americans thinking about living there. With the release of his new book, "The American Way of War," he said politicians need an "unrelenting mandate" from us to face down the threat President Eisenhower prophesied in his farewell address on the Military Industrial Complex.
Close to the Edge
All the signs are pointing toward a major confrontation between two forces of evil, locked in mortal combat for supremacy over the whole world.
