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...

Hillary Faces Down the Devil and Wins — Again

Reviews are in and Hillary Clinton was declared the clear winner in her first Presidential debate against Donald Trump. A lot was riding on her performance last night. No one has yet been able to stop the rise of unpredictable demagogue Trump, a man so comfortable lying that it’s hard to keep track of each falsehood. But Hillary is best under pressure, when her back...

Taking on Corporate Media’s Well Paid Hillary-Bashers

I am regularly asked why Andrea Mitchell still has a job at NBC. The complaint is: “She’s so biased against Hillary Clinton, she may as well be campaigning against her.  It’s all sneer, smear and innuendo.” True. But the medium is the message. TV networks pay many millions of dollars per year to pundits, dressing them in tony outfits to sit behind imposing desks in...

Beltway Press, You Own Matt Lauer: Trashing Him Doesn’t Absolve You

Beltway press reviews are in on Matt Lauer’s abysmal performance at NBC News’ Commander-in-Chief Forum last night: Lauer was out of his depth, ill-prepared and sexist, lobbing open ended softballs at a lying, flailing, Donald Trump, never correcting him while performing a hit job on Hillary Clinton. At a forum dedicated to foreign policy, Lauer spent most of his time on – God help me...
