Posted in Politics

Last night, Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont, and Wisconsin held primaries for the 2018 midterms. The results reflect this year’s trend of nominating possibly the most diverse slate of candidates there has ever been, with many of them being women. Today we break down the results into three parts: the good, the bad, and the ugly. THE GOOD RANDY BRYCE (D-WI) Randy “Iron Stache,” Bryce, whose campaign announcement ad caused a...

Meet Randy Credico, The Latest Lunatic Targeted by Robert Mueller

Posted in Politics

For people who’ve followed Russigate from the beginning, Randy Credico is one of the oddest and most fascinating characters in the whole saga. This New York-based comedian and radio show host seems to be, on the surface at least, the unlikeliest of persons to be involved with Donald Trump’s advisors. But with last night’s announcement that Robert Mueller will subpoena him, and that he will testify on September 7th, his role...

MEMBERS ONLY: Kamala Harris Lays Down the Law

Posted in Members Only, Politics

This past weekend, junior California Senator Kamala Harris certified her role in our country’s future with her powerful speech at Netroots, a progressive conference, denouncing the notion that standing for civil rights is playing “identity politics.” Harris, who is half-Indian and half-black, is the tenth African-American Senator since Reconstruction and the second black woman to do so.

Jim Acosta Hammers Huckabee Sanders Over ‘Enemy Of The People’ Remark

The Kennedy Center’s Decision to Honor Hamilton Is a Rebuke of Donald Trump

Posted in Culture, Politics

Last year, I wrote about the Kennedy Center’s decision to honor artists like Gloria Estefan and LL Cool J in its annual ceremony as embracing a big tent mentality towards the arts, rather than spurning classical forms like opera and ballet in a ploy for ratings, since many of the artists honored at the first ceremony in 1978 did not necessarily represent “fine arts” either. Three of them – dancers...

MEMBERS ONLY: The Myth Of The Hillary Clinton War Mongering Centrists

Posted in Foreign Policy, Members Only

One of the reasons many on the far left decided that Hillary Clinton should never become president was her supposed penchant for getting the US involved in wars abroad. The far left and far right now converge on this issue, with the Alt Right lauding president Trump’s bravery in submitting to Vladimir Putin and “stopping World War III”. Hillary Clinton, they argue, is a globalist who wanted nothing more...

DNC Voting to Swap Caucuses For Primaries, And That’s A Good Thing

Posted in Politics

The Democratic National Committee is considering a long-awaited reform that would reduce the number of caucuses in the 2020 election, moving to state-run primaries instead, and will vote on it next month at a meeting in Chicago. This is a huge victory for voting rights and should be celebrated by all who care about a more open and transparent electoral process in this country. The debate over caucuses vs. primaries has...
