What America Means

My Dad was a holocaust survivor who lost his entire family in World War II. My mom, though a Catholic and not imprisoned in concentration camps, was almost killed twice herself during the war. When my parents met and married years after the liberation and came to America by ship, it was not with the promise of gold-paved streets, because indeed they never became wealthy...

Trump Kompromat Gets Benefit of the Doubt? Hillary Wouldn’t

Just when you thought the cesspool likely planting itself at the White House couldn’t get more unseemly or terrifying, Vox shared “CNN’s …bombshell of a story —  the heads of America’s top intelligence agencies showed President-elect Donald Trump evidence that the Russian government may have “compromising personal and financial” information on him and that his campaign spoke directly with Kremlin intermediaries.” Further: “The allegations came,...

New York Times and the Beltway Press Shamed Into Doing Their Jobs

God bless Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman for consistently having the stones to take on his own newspaper. The New York Times’ political desk has engaged in a decades long campaign to ruin the Clintons, Hillary in particular, offering all manner of disrespectful crud about her that has been repeatedly disproved, though it still remains part of the Conservative and beltway press’ political porn fantasy lexicon....

Trump’s Bluster Is So Incompetent, It’s Terrifying

Setting aside the mess that was the first night of the Republican Convention: the misogynist hate fest of calling Hillary Clinton every filthy name in the book, the fear-mongering rants of the speakers and  presumptive Republican nominee Trump’s wife, Melania, cribbing part of her speech from First Lady Michelle Obama, none of this compares to the jaw dropping 60 Minutes interview Donald Trump did with...

Sanders Missed His Moment By Not Endorsing Hillary Last Week

On June 7th, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made history, becoming the first woman to be named presumptive nominee of a major political Party. Clinton won her Democratic primary battle against Bernie Sanders resoundingly, besting him by 387 pledged delegated and almost 4 million votes.

Was Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Road” to the Nomination Her Fault?

Hillary Clinton was just profiled in New York Magazine by the gifted Rebecca Traister, who wonders if Hillary’s road to the nomination needed to be as hard as it was. In her piece, Hillary Clinton vs. Herself, Traister posits Hillary made her path more difficult owing to her “pathological” need for privacy and purported hatred of the beltway press.  While she fairly reports Clinton’s gift...

Republican Hate Mongering, Planned Parenthood and Hillary Clinton

Most 2016 Republican presidential candidates daily bellow inflammatory rhetoric to stir the passions of their political base, no matter how many falsehoods are spread by such hate mongering. Consider this: Carly Fiorina’s lies about Planned Parenthood “selling baby parts” likely helped load the gun that Robert Lewis Dear used to murder three innocent people, including a police officer, and wound nine others, when he stormed...

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,...

Is Governor Pence’s RFRA Making the Republican Party Unelectable?

Why is Indiana’s Governor Pence doubling down on regressive social policy with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, when it makes the Republican Party look like “right wing whackos” out of touch with the mainstream? So asks radio host and EPIC TIMES founder Jerry Doyle. Jerry and I agree that a strong two party system is necessary for effective governance. But since President Obama’s last state...
