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...

Jeb Bush Still Wants to Publicly Shame Single Moms

Presidential candidate Jeb Bush believes that “restoring the art of public humiliation” could help prevent pregnancies “out of wedlock.” In a recent interview, Jeb Bush doubled down on opinions expressed in his 1995 book. His chapter, “The Restoration of Shame,” makes the case that ‘public shaming would be an effective way to regulate the “irresponsible behavior” of unwed mothers, misbehaving teenagers and welfare recipients.’ Per...

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...

Paul states: “They have consistently been wrong on foreign policy for the past 20 years.” How will this maverick streak work for him going forward and is he biting the hands that feed him? Is he telegraphing...

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.

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.

Can Jeb Bush Buy The Presidency?

Hillary Clinton Good for Gender Equality

With the news that Hillary Clinton is entering the Presidential race this Sunday, big media continues its faux hand-wringing that her campaign will feature a singular focus on the woman-ness of her candidacy as a means to woo women to the polls.
