Are Bush Republicans unduly influencing the Trump-obsessive Democrats?

Donald Trump is a bad President and an even worse person. His assault on common decency and our institutions of governance need to be reversed. His history as a sexual predator should have disqualified him from holding the top job – but in spite of this he got elected, legitimately unlike the last Republican President […]

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 […]

Bloomberg doesn’t expand the electorate for Democrats. He shrinks it.

How can (insert candidate’s name here) expand the electorate? Over the last four years, this simple question has been overlooked. Yes, many political pundits and consultants pontificate as to which candidate for president is “electable”, but they rarely ask this question within that context.

Writers note: This piece isn’t an endorsement of Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders, nor intended as a negative hit on any other Democratic candidate for President. It is a piece of historical analysis and perspective I feel needs to be written. It does not reflect the views of any other writer who has published on […]

Do not be fooled: Attacks on Iowa and New Hampshire are an establishment elite play to control nominating process

In recent months, I have been fairly critical of Bernie Sanders supporters despite agreeing with Senator Sanders ideology.  I have been put off by those who intolerantly claim anyone not backing their candidate is somehow the handmaiden of the establishment or corporate America.  However, I once again find the Sanders and Elizabeth Warren supporting left […]

Has the left betrayed MLK’s legacy?

Dr. Martin Luther King was a polarizing figure who brought out the best and worst in America. Eventually, the better angels of our nature prevailed and monumental legal progress was made through historic legislation. Socially, we are a far more integrated society than we were in the 1960s. Racism remains across the racial spectrum, but […]

The view from 30,000 feet: Democratic Presidential field underwhelming

With less than a week to the Iowa Caucus and while we sit through a Senate trial of an impeached President, it’s time to take stock of the Democrats running for President. For the record I believe each of the potential nominees would deserve the support of the American people in the General Election. But […]
