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...

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...

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...

Hillary’s Grit Under Pressure Wins New Supporters

Hillary Clinton’s patience, fortitude and grace under the 11-hour gang grilling she received at the hands of Chief Investigator Trey Gowdy and his questionable Benghazi committee was nothing short of astonishing. Gowdy and his Republican brethren were as disrespectful to Clinton as they were clueless of statecraft. Considering they were rabid to once again have Secretary Clinton under the hot lights, they seemed ill prepared...

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...

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...

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...

Donald Trump: Candidate or Clown?

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump feigned shock this weekend over the outrage his incendiary remarks about Mexican immigrants have generated. He stated: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” “And some, I imagine, are good people.” The result: NBC,...

Equality and the Destiny of Dissenters

The joy many felt at the SCOTUS’ marriage equality ruling – and the beauty of more than a dozen landmarks that turned rainbow last night – was marred only by bizarre, diminishing comments from Justices Roberts, Scalia, Thomas and Alito. Their sour dissents were mirrored by some of the Republican Party powerful. Yet when even conservative CNN commentator S.E. Cupp makes an emotional plea for...

Hillary Talks Issues While Republicans and Media Talk Smack

Despite bizarre memes on Hillary Clinton’s alleged “narrow electoral strategy” emanating, predictably, from The New York Times, it is not a stretch to claim that she is alone at the moment in her willingness to engage on bread and butter issues, taking bold positions on immigration, education, expanded voting rights and criminal justice reform. As a counterpoint, political strategist Shawna Vercher says she struggles to tout the...
