FBI Director Comey Hiding in Plain Sight

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign officials blame FBI Director James Comey for her loss last November, citing his reckless letter sent 11 days before the election. He falsely implying Hillary was under FBI investigation, thereby tanking her poll numbers. It is widely acknowledged that after her performance in their three debate match ups, she was cruising to victory against Donald Trump. Then Comey pulled his stunt....

How Sexism Upended an Election and Why It Won’t Change

Five years ago, I published Dirty Words on Clean Skin, a book exposing the sexism, coming mainly from the left, that derailed Hillary Clinton’s 2008 razor-close bid for the Presidential nomination. I wrote it as a call to action and to share a truth, the publication of which was intended to overcome chauvinist bias going forward.  The 2016 presidential election was a painful reminder of...

The Value of Perez and Ellison Leading the DNC

Does the election of a new DNC Chair matter?  Yes.  If you can see it, you can be it. Presenting diverse roll models matter, whether that role model is a women or a person of color.  And no one can fault the broad and deep qualifications of a Hillary Clinton, Tom Perez or Keith Ellison.  As a longtime admirer of the work of Melissa McEwan,...

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...

Yet, She Persisted. And So Must We All.

Today, when Senator Elizabeth Warren stood on the Senate floor to quote civil rights activist Coretta Scott King’s 1986 letter exposing Senator Jeff Sessions’ racist past and unfitness for a Federal Judgeship, Warren was gaveled to silence by #SpecialSnowflake Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Warren relayed to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that she was “red-carded” – forbidden to speak any further in reference to the confirmation...

What Did the #WomensMarch Accomplish For You?

The latest count of protesters who joined the #WomensMarch yesterday stands at 4.5 million. Per Think Progress, far from this being a bunch of “coastal elites” protesting the Trump inauguration, there were “more than 500 protests in the U.S. and dozens more around the world,” and staggering numbers from “Real America”, that includes “crowds of 100,000 in Minneapolis/St. Paul, 12,000 in Omaha, Nebraska, 12,000 in...

The Women’s March Ought to Recognize Hillary, Too

This Saturday, in protest of a controversial, possibly compromised election and the inauguration of a man who made his way to the podium via demagoguery, thousands, perhaps millions, of women and supportive men will march on Washington, D.C., in cities around the country and even the world. They will march to peacefully remind of our values, diversity, equality, our civil rights and the rule of...

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,...

Put the Blame for Hillary’s Loss Where It Belongs

Since Hillary Clinton’s shocking loss Tuesday night, I’ve been frozen, alternately grieving or venting in the social media jungle. Statistics that 63% of white men and 53% of white women turned their backs on Hillary (even as people of color overwhelmingly supported her) were just as frustrating as self-serving media pronouncements that Hillary was a “weak, unpopular candidate,” and that we needed a “credible populist”...

Hillary Takes The High Road – Cynical Media and Republican Leadership Don’t Care

In the wake of Donald Trump’s scandal exposing his lewd 2005 “hot mic” comments condoning the sexual assault of women, some in Republican leadership have finally and, in the name of self-preservation, pulled their endorsements.  Unimpressed with such pearl-clutching, Media Matter’s Oliver Willis and HuffPo’s Jeffrey Young called out a click-bait driven press corps and the Republican Party’s feigned disgust since they were well aware...
