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...

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...

Will Gowdy Tiptoe Around Hillary Now That Benghazi Committee Revealed as Farce?

When Hillary once again testifies before the “Special” Benghazi Committee on October 22nd, she will have the wind at her back. Chief investigator Rep. Trey Gowdy is now running scared. He has just given back donations he received from Stop Hillary PAC (the group that aired an anti-Hillary ad so grotesque, even two moms of Benghazi victims were appalled). Gowdy was forced to admit he...

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...

Hillary Surges in the Polls, Shining Past Media Bias and Politicized Attacks

In the days since House Speaker hopeful Kevin McCarthy bragged to FOX’s Sean Hannity the real reason for the Republican driven Benghazi investigative committee – to drive down Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers – McCarthy has unsuccessfully attempted to walk back his “inartful” statements. His irrational Hillary-hate coupled with Republicans’ abject terror of running against the accomplished Clinton compelled his boast in the first...

Will John Boehner Stepping Down Expose the GOP Crazy?

House Speaker John Boehner shocked Capitol Hill and big media alike when he announced that he will relinquish his gavel at the end of October. Now, as members of Congress scramble to see who will take over as one of the most influential voices in the country, media strategist Shawna Vercher says “the GOP is in danger of exposing all of its dysfunction.” The trend...

The Truth of Hillary’s Email Non-Scandal

Hillary Clinton is running an intelligent presidential campaign focused on voters’ pressing concerns. Her plans for reining in Wall Street, reducing cost of college education and child care, criminal justice and immigration reform, gun control, and equal pay for women deserve close examination. Yet we are distracted from the issues Clinton and other candidates raise by a corporate owned media that, just as in 2008,...

Republicans Fake Feminist Outrage to Bash Trump – Hilarity Ensues

After Republican frontrunner Donald Trump retaliated against tough debate questioning by FOX News’ Megyn Kelly, saying “she had blood coming out of her wherever,” the menstruation slur had Republicans in an uproar. Candidates like Carly Fiorina pretended offense, yet simultaneously swore that the equal rights Hillary Clinton champions for women are pandering and not needed. Fiorina also denied the need for paid maternity leave. Senator Marco Rubio, frustrated by...

Fighting Planned Parenthood May Backfire on Congress

Planned Parenthood is once again the center of national debate, and this time, Congress is threatening to use the issue of abortion as a reason to shut down the Federal government. While the notion of slashing Planned Parenthood funding may be a vehicle to rally social Conservatives, if Republicans leverage this controversial issue to once again pull a shutdown, it will likely backfire. One in...

Why Is Governor Scott Walker Averse to Transparency?

When Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker takes the stage this Thursday at the first Republican presidential debate, he should be asked how he feels about the need for campaign finance reform, given that the Conservative dominated Wisconsin high court just voted along party lines to quash an investigation into Scott Walker’s campaign finance behavior in 2012, setting up a test case where dark money can go...
