Hillary Clinton’s Must Watch Speech on Race and Gun Violence

Hillary Clinton’s speech at 2015’s Conference of Mayors is the best I have heard her give. Addressing difficult truths on race and gun violence in today’s America, the former Secretary of State was forceful, insightful, tender and on point. Those who pretend she was politicizing the massacre of nine African American women and men at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston might have agendas of their...

Do Politics Even Matter?

Do Politics Even Matter?

I was grateful to be back on the radio Monday with my friend, Epic Times founder Jerry Doyle, who just survived a brutal mugging while on vacation in Germany. His brush with death was a stark reminder that we are never out of harm’s way. Yet too often, we are hamsters racing around a wheel, distracted by external benchmarks instead of focusing on fulfillment in...

Hillary Talks Issues While Republicans and Media Talk Smack

Despite bizarre memes on Hillary Clinton’s alleged “narrow electoral strategy” emanating, predictably, from The New York Times, it is not a stretch to claim that she is alone at the moment in her willingness to engage on bread and butter issues, taking bold positions on immigration, education, expanded voting rights and criminal justice reform. As a counterpoint, political strategist Shawna Vercher says she struggles to tout the...

Hillary Clinton Dares Republicans on Voting Rights

Hillary Clinton’s call for expanded voting rights has Republicans on the attack. Per CNN, Ohio Gov. Kasich accused her of trying to “divide” Americans. NJ Gov. Christie suggested she just “wanted opportunities to commit voter fraud.” Yet they present no hard evidence that validate their ongoing efforts to make voting more difficult. Author and commentator Anita Finlay says “Clinton is smartly backing Republicans in a...

What’s The New York Times’ Gripe with Hillary Clinton?

Talking with Ed Berliner on Newsmax’s The Hard Line, I suggested one might want to learn the identity of The New York Times’ major shareholder. “There is definitely an agenda when it comes to Hillary,” I said.  I cannot tell you what is in the hearts and minds of the owners or editorial staff, but as my recent article, The New York Times’ Vendetta Against...

The New York Times’ Vendetta Against Hillary Clinton

Just out of college, I got a job at The New York Times. The electricity of the place was undeniable and I was proud to enter the building’s double doors and pass beneath the paper’s glorious masthead. I never imagined that 30 years later, I’d be singling out the “paper of record” for what appears to be a vendetta against Hillary Clinton. Beyond reporting the news,...

Will Candidates Start to Run from Religion?

“A Presidential candidate bringing up their faith on the campaign trail has been a long-standing part of the Election season, often with at least one exchange where the competitors try to prove that they are more devout than the others. But with new data indicating that less and less Americans are identifying themselves with a particular religion, will we see people running for office backing...

The Forgotten Hillary

Amidst the media frenzy swirling around all things Hillary, an obsession with sound bites she gives, or doesn’t give the press, her “Scooby Van” and trips to Chipotle, more vital information about Secretary Clinton’s accomplishments are lost. Scott Conroy’s refreshing article, In Arkansas, Hillary Clinton’s Legacy Remains Potent, reports on the groundbreaking work Hillary Clinton did as a young attorney for the Children’s Defense Fund,...

Republicans in Search of a Platform?

The Republican field gets more crowded by the day, with the potential for nearly two dozen candidates jockeying for position on the debate stage. But how will they distinguish themselves from the pack? It’s early in the race, but they each need to find their focus on big issues and get beyond posturing. As author and political strategist Shawna Vercher notes, if the candidates do...

Hillary Clinton Just Did Something Unheard Of On Criminal Justice Reform

Have Baltimore’s protests owing to the death of Freddie Gray in police custody signaled a tipping point? Does the will exist to put muscle behind criminal justice reform or is this another tragedy destined to be buried by our relentless news cycle? Slate’s Jamelle Bouie makes the case that by Hillary Clinton vowing to put criminal justice reform front and center in her presidential campaign,...
