Biden’s Florida Latino problem is real. Here are 7 reasons why

A slew of polling in the last week has indicated Joe Biden has a real problem with Latino voters in Florida. These polls came as a shock to many political observers but as my Twitter feed indicates (if you go back a bit), I had detected the softness of Biden’s support among Latino’s before any […]

Any false equivalency between Biden and Trump is beyond bonkers- it’s dangerous and threatens western democracy.

Authors note: Portions of this piece have run previously on the site. The content is updated to reflect circumstances in August 2020. The recently completed Democratic National Convention highlighted the Joe Biden I remember – compassionate, caring, feisty and magnanimous. Below I’ll detail Biden’s generally progressive legislative history. However first, as MAGA Republicans have sought […]

Debt, lies and economic destruction

In a recent interview Peter Navarro observed that President Trump was the was the “greatest jobs President in history.”  Navarro is a top economic and trade assistant to President Trump.  According the data from the Federal Reserve, the current unemployment rate at 11%, is higher than any time since World War II.  This is true […]

COVID-19 fallout: Why this progressive thinks neoconservatives are needed to help solve the Democrats unprincipled, anti-intellectual and non-ideological drift toward oblivion

I’ve been critical in the past of how easily Trump-era Democrats and its media allies have welcomed Bush-era neoconservatives into the camp with open arms. But the handling of COVID-19 and how messaging has developed in this period has changed my perspectives pretty dramatically. Neoconservative critiques of Trump continue to be spot-on and go directly […]

The template is below (FILL IN THE BLANK ) NOTES: MAKE SURE TO IMPUGN ALL CONSERVATIVES, CALL TRUMP SUPPORTERS DEPLORABLE RACISTS, PROGRESSIVES AND SANDERS SUPPORTERS AS CRAZY PRO-CASTRO ANTI-AMERICANS. MAKE SURE WE CONVEY THAT WE KNOW BETTER THAN YOU AND LET US LEAD. EVERYONE BETTER GET […]

The case for Biden picking a GOP running mate – a “unity ticket”

Democratic voters and the Democratic establishment w/ their media allies have decided the party cannot afford to embrace an overly progressive agenda for the 2020 Election. Defeating Donald Trump and holding the US House are the priorities we are reminded on a daily basis. With this in mind I have a suggestion, though I concede […]

Millennials need to vote Democratic in November

By Robert Buccellato  The Democratic party is a large and fractured institution. To believe these divisions can be quickly mended by a balloon drop at a National Convention is profoundly naive. We are approaching an era when the parents vote for party establishment and the kids vote independently. The 2016 election was a revelation in […]

Castro and Maduro obsession while avoidance of similar right-wing abuses among Florida Dems cheapens party’s brand

This past five days we have been subjected to some of the most disingenuous moral outrage by Florida Democrats imaginable. Seemingly in reaction to Bernie Sanders comments about Fidel Castro on 60 Minutes, Florida Democrats much like last year’s race to look more anti-Maduro than the GOP piled on. Interestingly they did not take such […]

How MSNBC and CNN are helping spread Russian disinformation

Des Moines Precinct 14. This precinct has become synonymous with the problems that occurred in Iowa a couple of weeks ago. Elizabeth Warren, receiving 19 votes less than Bernie Sanders, wins one more state delegate in the precinct. And yes, the Iowa Democratic Party have called the results official, and these errors have helped determined […]
