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...

Governor Pence’s RFRA Disaster Reveals Republican Dilemma in 2016

In one of the more dubious political moves in recent history, Governor Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act “in private,” flanked by several anti-gay lobbyists. Optics tell the story. That the outrage and backlash from Tech CEOs, business owners, sports personalities and grassroots protesters “shocked” Pence serves as a cautionary tale for Republicans running in 2016, some of whom seem to be living in...

Republicans’ Hillary Bashing is a Mistake

The latest Hillary-bashing from Republicans hungry to win the White House in 2016 is the “Hillary’s Hiding” campaign, anchored by RNC billboards charging that Secretary Clinton is afraid to weigh in on economic and foreign policy issues. Republicans who complain incessantly that Hillary sucks up all the air in the room only to do an about face when she, still a private citizen, shuns the...

Governor Jerry Brown Beyond Left and Right Hype

Depending upon whom you ask, California Governor Jerry Brown has either saved the Golden State from sure ruin or deserves an “F” rating as a “tax and spend” liberal who has chased away businesses, raised taxes egregiously and masked massive unfunded pension liability behind a new budget surplus in the billions.  Who is right? Having lived in the state for 25 years, my evidence is...

“Hillary is the Meryl Streep of Politics”: Anita Finlay on Newsmax TV

On her book tour for Hard Choices, Hillary Clinton has been getting a fair amount of lambasting from a pundit class that looks to be lying in wait in the tall grass.  As usual, Secretary Clinton is graded  by a different metric than other potential candidates, or private citizens (she is one right now) would receive. How good would ever be good enough in her case? I answer those...

Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle Debate Hillary, Leadership and Media Manipulation 6/10/2014

On June 1oth, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched her book, “Hard Choices.”  Her blitz interview tour, starting with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, was cause for Jerry to grill me on her every talking point: the “dead broke” gaffe, her IWR vote from 2002 (yes, it is still an issue to some), and much more.  Jerry and I debate the value of experience vs. the...
