I posted this to Facebook and am sharing it here. I have a few ideas about how to turn back authoritarianism, but first–here’s what makes me think it’s even possible.

Here’s some crap that came from that clickbait aggregator site “Raw Story”: Trump says privately that a terror attack could save him and GOP from 2018 election bloodbath: report. Yeah, that’s kind of a reach. I’m not the person who says don’t share things from Rawstory because it’s fake news. I’m the person who says […]
A friend shared this essay recently on Facebook, highlighted by “The #MeToo moment has now morphed into a moral panic that poses as much danger to women as it does to men.” Wow. What a mess. This author is jumping all over the place with a thesis that changes every few paragraphs. It’s hard to […]
The proposed policy on bias-free policing is an insult to the Court. It’s an insult to the Bias-Free Policing Work Group that committed four months to research and produce a thorough and comprehensive set of recommendations.

WTAM 1100 ran an interesting story just now: Kelley tells Newsradio WTAM 1100, opposition group Greater Cleveland Congregations were organized and funded by groups from Washington DC and Columbus. He says the public should know where and how the organization received its money.
This article recently ran on cleveland.com: “Death of 17-year-old boy in Akron police custody ruled suicide, medical examiner says.” The writer here has a masters degree from the Columbia University School of Journalism. A good reporter would have done more than transcribing the police press release. To wit: “Leeser declined to discuss the department’s polices […]
