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

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. Additionally, when asked this questions, many pundits and consultants stay within their silos, and only look at possible upward mobility, […]

The narratives about both Biden and Sanders are biased. “Fresh faces” not getting the scrutiny of Septuagenarian male candidates.

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 […]

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.

Since election night 2016 many have opined about Trump’s ‘crisis of legitimacy,’ but the Kavanaugh confirmation has for the first time exposed a credible legitimacy battle that the Trump Administration will […]

Coded Antisemitism growing within the Democratic Party

While the Democratic Party has wrapped itself around identity politics for the purposes of building a coalition in elections and perhaps out of a desire to avoid meaningful dialogue on larger issues that actually impact minority communities, a dangerous drift toward coded antisemitism appears to be underway.  Take for example a recent Orlando Weekly cover […]

Brazile: fundraising agreements sold out DNC to Clinton campaign

If we’ve learned anything from the Donna Brazile revelations, it’s that we can rely on Donna Brazile to do the right thing—after she’s tried everything else. We also learned from Brazile’s exposé that my hypothesis laid out in Part 2 of the DNC Fraud Lawsuit series was right on the money. Now we have specifics. […]
