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...

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...

Republicans Thirsty for Hillary’s Blood Hand Her Another Win

  After Hillary Clinton was hounded Javert-like by Republicans and their beltway press stenographers for the past 18 months about her use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State, FBI Director Comey concluded his office’s investigation stating nothing she did rose to the level of a crime, nor could he find any intent to commit one. Since he couldn’t prosecute...

Hillary Woos Republican Business Leaders Away From Trump’s Train Wreck

Fortune Magazine reports that “more than 50 business executives, many of whom have longstanding GOP ties, are reportedly set to endorse Hillary Clinton.  The Wall St. Journal states she has support “from well-heeled members of a Republican party that has grown increasingly divided over its presumptive presidential candidate, the firebrand billionaire and former reality TV star Donald Trump.” AT&T senior EVP James Cicconi, said “this...

Trump’s Big Mistake With Hillary

Trump’s Big Mistake With Hillary

Donald Trump is making the same mistake with Hillary Clinton his misogynist brethren have made.  Trump assumes that the sexist cabal whom he currently leads is representative of the American electorate.  Trump, Cruz, Jeb, Gowdy, Reince, their insecure white maleness on display for all to see, are scared to death of her. They therefore revert to 12 year olds insulting Hillary’s womanhood, thinking that will...

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...

Hillary Clinton’s Must-Watch Speech on Keeping America Safe

Hillary Clinton’s Must-Watch Speech on Keeping America Safe

In the wake of the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Hillary Clinton’s comprehensive speech on counter-terrorism was a sober alternative to the bellicose posturing heard at tonight’s Republican debate. Listening to her remarks, it is impossible not to contrast her gravitas, knowledge and resolve with the ignorant braggadocio offered up by Trump, Cruz and other Republican presidential candidates. Fred Kaplan’s Slate article, America’s New Know-Nothings,...

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...

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...

What the Politics of Fear Cost Us

There are heated opinions on whether America should be welcoming Syrian refugees to our shores after the terrorist attacks in Paris and Beirut last week. Yet, much as we might dread the unknown, part of what it means to be an American is that we rise above the fearful rhetoric and xenophobia now taking hold with a vast number of Republican presidential candidates, and in...
