MEET KATRINA PIERSON, TRUMP’S LIAR-IN-CHIEF…

August 5th, 2016

Could attacking the family of fallen veteran, Army Captain Humayun Saqib Muazzam Khan, who gave his life in the defense of his country on 8 June 2005, be the bridge too far for Donald Trump? Maybe. What other story about the garbage spewing from Trump’s mouth has had this kind of traction. (Well, maybe this.) […]

BERNIE JILL OR BUST…

August 5th, 2016

All systems are rigged to favor those who write the rules or, as Johnny Hart reminded us: Always remember the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules. The only way to win when faced with a non-win situation is, like cadet James Tiberius Kirk, to break the rules. Victor Tiffany, Co-Founder, Revolt […]

SORRY BERNIE, JILL’S GETTING MY DOLLARS NOW…

August 4th, 2016

Bernie emails: Jeff, Election days come and go, but the struggle for economic, social, racial and environmental justice continues. Together, we built something special and unprecedented through our presidential campaign. Now, we are going to take the next steps for our political revolution. We are building a new organization called Our Revolution. Our goal will […]

LESSER EVIL, NO… VOTE GREATER GOOD, YES…!

August 3rd, 2016

There is a 90 percent chance that I will vote for Jill Stein in November. As for the other 10 percent, I may still choose to write in Bernie, but that looks less likely every day. I did vote for Jill Stein in 2012 (just like I voted for Ralph Nader in 1996) so I […]

SACRIFICE AND SUCCESS DO BOTH BEGIN WITH “S”…

CAN WE JUST ARREST HILLARY AND DONALD…?

July 31st, 2016

I’m not JD impaired, but I think there is a case to be made for We The People v. Clinton-Trump. Clinton for violation of campaign finance laws (Victory Fund) and Trump for violation of cyber security laws (encouraging Russian hacking). There’s probably a lot more there, but I’d start with those two and charge, arrest, […]

HILLARY NEVER MET A DOLLAR SHE DIDN’T LOVE…

July 30th, 2016

Who's paying at the DNC? from The Intercept on Vimeo. So, Bernie ran his campaign on an average of $27 and turned his back on gray/dark money and the contributions of lobbyists. In 2008, President Barack Hussein Obama banned lobbyists from funding the Democratic National Convention. Presidential wanna-be Hillary Clinton flipped that decision. If this […]

THE DNC OWNS NOVEMBER’S ELECTION RESULTS…

July 28th, 2016

In 2000, Democrats, panicked and desperate to shift the blame for electing George W. Bush to the presidency and setting in motion the longest wars of our nation’s history—we were on track to invade Iraq from the moment Bush took the oath of office, 11 September was just an unplanned boost to the invasion—pointed fingers […]

SEEING CONVENTIONS THROUGH INTERCEPT EYES…

July 27th, 2016

I’m finding that the reporting coming from Mattathias Schwartz, Alice Speri, Rania Khalek, Zaid Jilani and the rest of the team at The Intercept to be the best of this year’s conventions. The comedians like Samantha Bee and Larry Wilmore (above and below) are doing excellent jobs as well, but the serious journalism is happening […]

PLATFORMS ARE WORTHLESS WADS OF PAPER…

July 26th, 2016

So, I’ve listened to the speech with the three minutes of applause and multiple instances of booing and Bernie’s assurances regarding by far, the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party and while I’m emotionally moved—I really, really want to trust Bernie—I’m unconvinced. I think the mention of the platform pulled me […]

BERNIE ADDRESSES THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION…

PLAYING THE GODLESS CARD AT THE DNC…

July 23rd, 2016

FROM: MARSHALL@dnc.org TO: MirandaL@dnc.org, PaustenbachM@dnc.org, DaceyA@dnc.org DATE: 2016-05-05 03:31 SUBJECT: No shit It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This […]

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT…

July 22nd, 2016

There has been a political conspiracy meme running this election year(s) that Donald Trump is actually in cahoots with the Clintons, more effectively than anyone could have imagined, to destroy the traditional Republican candidates and then self-destruct so that Hillary can dance into the White House. Or, maybe the run is all a prank gone […]

WHERE WILL BERNIE VOTERS, AND I, GO NOW…?

July 13th, 2016

THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS IS STILL EVIL…

July 9th, 2016

In my book evil is like dark or cold, the absence of their opposites good, light and heat. So, for me, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both represent the absence of good and voting for either is a negative vote for my country; a country and a constitution I gave 11 years of my life […]

HOW BERNIE VOTERS ARE BEING TRANSFORMED…

July 7th, 2016

One of the political questions of the moment is: how will Bernie voters be transformed post-convention when their candidate returns to being the only independent senator in Congress? An email this week from Northeast Ohio For Bernie Sanders provides a view: The United States Senate is voting on legislation as early as this week engineered […]

WHERE WE GO FROM HERE…

June 24th, 2016

Bernie walked Stephen Colbert through the speech in advance.

THE FIGHT IS ABOUT TRANSFORMING AMERICA…

June 16th, 2016

So, this phase of the fight is over and the next phase has begun. I need to watch this again, and again, but the part that has stuck with me for now comes at time mark 1434 where, in talking about the Democratic Party Convention in July Bernie demands: That the Democratic Party passes the […]

OVER…? DID YOU SAY OVER…? NOTHING IS OVER… *

June 8th, 2016

Dan Roberts, reporting in Bernie Sanders’ new slogan looks beyond nomination: ‘The struggle continues’ for The Guardian, writes: From the dying embers of his presidential campaign, Bernie Sanders has forged a new slogan that gives a clue to what the defiant leftwinger will do next after losing the Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton. “The struggle […]
