Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

The GOP suicide cult

The GOP suicide cult

Sometimes bad news can be good news. Soon Senate Republicans will reject impeachment witnesses and acquit Traitor Trump. When that happens, their white-supremacist and evangelical Christian cult will celebrate without realizing that the acquittal will backfire bigly. That’s because the rest of America will know that the GOP sold out their country to protect the […]

Fence-sitters: pay attention!

Fence-sitters: pay attention!

Marty’s photo of the day #3141: I’ve been watching the impeachment hearings—not with anticipation that the Republicans will suddenly discover ethics, but with the hope that Americans who normally don’t participate in politics will finally realize that the GOP is blocking witnesses and documents because they care about one thing, and one thing only: power. […]

Trump’s impeachment: we all know how this will turn out

Trump’s impeachment: we all know how this will turn out

I feel like I should write something about the impeachment of Donald Trump, but we’ve all known how this is going to turn out for months: Impeachment will pass the House on party lines (give or take a few people) and go to the GOP-controlled Senate, where they will fail to convict on similar party […]

GOP chairman confuses Republican vales with Montana values

GOP chairman confuses Republican vales with Montana values

Don “K” Kaltschmidt, the chairman of the Montana Republican Party, has a blistering guest column in Montana newspapers this week. In that column, he accuses Gov. Steve Bullock and other Democratic state leaders of not reflecting the state’s “values” by supporting the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump. While it’s laughable that any Republican would speak […]

Mitt Romney knows something

Mitt Romney knows something

Have you noticed how Mitt Romney has been stepping up his criticism of Donald “The Bedbug” Trump? While pundits speculate a variety of motives from being a patriot to just not liking Trump, I have a different theory: Romney knows something. In fact, he’s reasonably sure that neither the Bedbug nor Mike “The Soulless One” […]

Trump’s strategy on impeachment

Trump’s strategy on impeachment

As near as I can tell, this is the Trump Administration’s strategy in a nutshell: 1) Block testimony and refuse to cooperate in any way with the House impeachment inquiry, forcing the Democrats to impeach based solely on obstruction. 2) When the Senate hearings start, Trump lawyers will then say, “The House Democrats were politically […]

Hey GOP! Karma is a bitch!

Hey GOP! Karma is a bitch!

When the shocking news arrived on Election Night 2016 that Donald Trump won the Electoral College, my wife and I struggled to find something positive about the tragedy. In the end, we both agreed that what happened might be better for the Democrats and Planet Earth in the long-run. Had Hillary Clinton become president, the […]

Arguing a woman’s right to choose.

Arguing a woman’s right to choose.

A few days ago, I wrote a commentary on the GOP, “God’s Own Party,” forcing their archaic abortion beliefs on women. I was shocked when multiple women posted comments, arguing that the United States should regress 46 years to the days of the coat hanger. I was even more shocked when one of them even […]

Evil in Alabama: GOP Christians to force raped women to carry fetuses to term

Evil in Alabama: GOP Christians to force raped women to carry fetuses to term

Alabama’s new total abortion ban will require women who get pregnant as a result of rape to carry that fetus to term. Any doctor helping that woman end her pregnancy can be sentenced to 99 years in jail. Now before you blame this solely on men, keep in mind that the Republican sponsor of the […]

Traitors to their own.

Traitors to their own.

An article in today’s Missoulian features the president of the Lewis & Clark Republican Women’s club all giddy because the Matt Kavanaugh hearing invigorated her cult. Yes, the club’s membership of creepy white women has actually grown. How sad that Christine Blasey Ford—terrified but brave, forced out of her house because of death threats, and […]

GOP thoughts and prayers

GOP thoughts and prayers

Marty’s photo of the day #2608: So far this year, 8,284 people have died via gun shots in the United States, and not a single person has risen from the dead after Republican thoughts and prayers. Frustrated by the lack of results, the Republican Party has added Herbie the Agile Wallaby to their post-shooting thoughts […]

Democrats and Republicans are not the same!

Democrats and Republicans are not the same!

Anyone who thinks there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans is simply not paying attention. It was that kind of thinking that got both Donald Trump and George W. Bush elected—the two worst presidents in American history. If it wasn’t for Ralph Nader siphoning off votes, Bush would have lost to Al Gore. If […]

Metaphorically circling the GOP

Metaphorically circling the GOP

Marty’s photo of the day #2386: Readers of my by second book, “Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico,” will recognize this black vulture photo. Just think, eleven months from now millions of these will be metaphorically circling the Republican Party.
