FBI Director Comey Hiding in Plain Sight

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign officials blame FBI Director James Comey for her loss last November, citing his reckless letter sent 11 days before the election. He falsely implying Hillary was under FBI investigation, thereby tanking her poll numbers. It is widely acknowledged that after her performance in their three debate match ups, she was cruising to victory against Donald Trump. Then Comey pulled his stunt....

The Value of Perez and Ellison Leading the DNC

Does the election of a new DNC Chair matter?  Yes.  If you can see it, you can be it. Presenting diverse roll models matter, whether that role model is a women or a person of color.  And no one can fault the broad and deep qualifications of a Hillary Clinton, Tom Perez or Keith Ellison.  As a longtime admirer of the work of Melissa McEwan,...

Does Flynn’s Resignation Herald More Danger or the Rescue of Our Republic?

Despite GOP leadership’s refusal to investigate Michael Flynn’s discussion of US sanctions with Russia before Trump took office, his resignation after only 23 days as National Security Advisor tells us that despite GOP denials, intelligence professionals take this threat seriously enough to leak it to us like a sieve, even as they are allegedly withholding intelligence from Trump for fear of “Russian ears” in the...

Maybe I Should Just Share Pictures of My Cats

Hard to know what some people wouldn’t find threatening. Write positively about the most qualified, accomplished woman in a generation – some people don’t like that. Write about why she lost an election that everyone thought she was going to win – some don’t like that either, even though, for all intents and purposes, Hillary’s political career is over. You’d think they’d be happy. Not...

Hillary Takes The High Road – Cynical Media and Republican Leadership Don’t Care

In the wake of Donald Trump’s scandal exposing his lewd 2005 “hot mic” comments condoning the sexual assault of women, some in Republican leadership have finally and, in the name of self-preservation, pulled their endorsements.  Unimpressed with such pearl-clutching, Media Matter’s Oliver Willis and HuffPo’s Jeffrey Young called out a click-bait driven press corps and the Republican Party’s feigned disgust since they were well aware...

Hillary Faces Down the Devil and Wins — Again

Reviews are in and Hillary Clinton was declared the clear winner in her first Presidential debate against Donald Trump. A lot was riding on her performance last night. No one has yet been able to stop the rise of unpredictable demagogue Trump, a man so comfortable lying that it’s hard to keep track of each falsehood. But Hillary is best under pressure, when her back...

Taking on Corporate Media’s Well Paid Hillary-Bashers

I am regularly asked why Andrea Mitchell still has a job at NBC. The complaint is: “She’s so biased against Hillary Clinton, she may as well be campaigning against her.  It’s all sneer, smear and innuendo.” True. But the medium is the message. TV networks pay many millions of dollars per year to pundits, dressing them in tony outfits to sit behind imposing desks in...

Republicans Created the Trump Train Wreck

Republicans Created the Trump Train Wreck

  The phenomenon of Donald Trump’s oncoming train wreck was precipitated by a cynical, click-bait driven corporate media and Republican fear-mongering that offered fertile ground for Trump’s rise. What a slap in the face to Republican politicians that 16 of them were defeated for the Presidential nomination by an erratic, narcissistic businessman who wouldn’t know effective policy, a truthful statement or civil behavior if it...

Hillary Did Us Proud Tonight

As a longtime Hillary Clinton supporter, I’ve struggled for months to share just what it is about her that makes me most proud, that makes me believe in her. I now understand I look upon her as a loyal friend who shows up day in and year out.  My support for her was never based on fandom or cult worship, but was earned, slowly.  They...

Why Hillary Spanking Trump Should Comfort the American People

Hillary Clinton’s much lauded foreign policy speech last Thursday was notable for her fierce, resolute delivery, for turning the page on the long primary battle and for taking the demagogue Trump to school so hard, he dripped flop sweat and could only sputter weak personal attacks in response. She even rendered the Republican Party attack machine silent.  Clinton once again demonstrated her command of issues...
