Hillary’s Clean Sweep and the State of the Race

Hillary made history again last Tuesday, taking the primary contests of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina by huge margins, and unexpectedly scoring narrow wins in Illinois and Missouri.  Instead of celebrating her clean sweep, beltway media by and large pretended it wasn’t happening, focusing on “how well” Bernie did, or — in the case of major pundits/reporters Joe Scarborough, Brit Hume, Glenn Thrush and Howard...

Are Republicans Self- Immolating Over Obama’s SCOTUS Pick?

Are Republicans Self- Immolating Over Obama’s SCOTUS Pick?

Almost at the moment of the unexpected death of Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia last weekend, Republicans exploded in full spin mode, flailing their arms wildly, not unlike the Alien famously jettisoned by Ripley into hyperspace.  Their cause: selling the American people on the hype that President Obama, with nearly a year left in office, has no business appointing a new Justice to fill...

The New York Times Endorses Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Nomination

In its enthusiastic endorsement of Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, The New York Times’ editorial board stated “voters have the chance to choose one of the most broadly and deeply qualified presidential candidates in modern history.” Their assessment is both forthright and thoughtful, leading many to wonder how their political desk could be consistently trashy to Secretary Clinton, pursuing stories of questionable origin in...

Clinton On Message, Sanders Under Pressure

As a longtime Hillary supporter who came to that choice after much research, I’ve had occasion to marvel at Secretary Clinton’s grace under pressure. The best example being her recent 11-hour grilling at the hands of the Benghazi “investigative” committee led by Rep. Trey Gowdy. He and his Republican cohorts were spitting mad and well…just spitting rude accusations that more reasoned persons in Gowdy’s own...

Who Is More Dangerous: Trump or the Media?

Acknowledging that unlikely Republican front-runner Donald Trump has hit a nerve with a notable segment of his Party, there is little doubt that his xenophobic comments are, among other things, a cynical headline grab that gets him tons of free air time. But who is the bad guy here? The man making these statements or a corporate owned media, so starved for ratings, it will...

Media Complicity in Donald Trump, Demagogue-in-Chief

Media Complicity in Donald Trump, Demagogue-in-Chief

Mainstream media helped create, feed, and cynically fed on, the creature that is Donald Trump, but have now decided he has gone too far with his latest xenophobic statement that there be a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” Their complaints are as cynical as his candidacy. Leaving aside that his comment is a likely ISIS recruiting tool, Donald Trump is...

If You Want to Call the Election, Trust Vegas

“While there is no shortage of people making predictions about who will become the next Commander in Chief, almost every source of information has its own reason for bias. The media tends to report on the more outrageous candidates even when they’re not performing well in the polls. Pundits focus on their favorites or those that they have ready access to.  Many polls have no...

Playing False with Planned Parenthood is Damaging Republicans

Republicans have chosen to double down on defunding Planned Parenthood, even by shutting down government, if necessary. But is their crusade yielding the desired result? Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina just found out the hard way that, as media strategist Shawna Vercher put it, “Lying matters more to people than anyone thought.” Author and commentator Anita Finlay agreed, stating that “Fiorina has been caught lying about...

Corporate Owned Media Slanting Election Coverage on Purpose

Corporate Owned Media Slanting Election Coverage on Purpose

The corporate owned media is desperate to retain control of our electoral process, crafting meme after meme to influence voter thinking so they can once again pick our President. Despite their efforts, Hillary Clinton still leads nationally by an average (and in some case, by a minimum) of at least 20 points. You’d never know it if you got your news via click-bait headlines. In...

Sham Benghazi Committee Telegraphs GOP’s 2016 Electoral Problems – Updated

Rising Republican “young gun” Kevin McCarthy was a shoo-in to replace John Boehner as Speaker of the House until his boast on FOX News that Republicans’ creation of this “special Benghazi committee” was dragging down Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers. McCarthy all but confessed the committee’s true purpose on national television. Now, NY Republican Rep. Richard Hanna, in a fit of conscience, just admitted the same:...
