Trump can mean the very end of the future of this country as we know it -- the end of the rule of law. No, I am not "for her". I am for my family, my friends and my country -- and that means I will be voting for Hillary with a prayer as well as a ballot.
Philadelphia. "The City of Brotherly Love" is under siege by protestors fed up with broken dreams and broken promises by career-politicians who shamel...
I'm terrified of Trump getting his stubby little paws on the launch button. And Putin? He's had his finger on that button for over fifteen years (well, technically, for a few years, it was Medvedev's finger on the button, but Putin had his finger on Medvedev). He hasn't launched a nuke yet.
Are you a real Christian who lives by what your bible preaches or are you a fake one who pretends to be virtuous while spewing unsullied animosity towards anyone who does not agree with you while you actively prevent the struggling lower class of America from enjoying the same kind of life that you feel that you are entitled to?
I've been researching Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and the issues pertaining to their students for over 20 years. I have a new book out - Edu...
Progressive big hitters were out on the field Monday and they successfully swung for the fences. If only -- and it's a big if -- if only the party could liberate itself from the stranglehold of Big Money. For off camera, out of sight and (for the moment) out of mind, one could sense the corrupting presence of the lobbyists of corporate America.
There has always been a truth to the idiom 'where there is smoke there is fire' and Donald Trump's statements and actions seem to be fanning a huge blaze. His entire campaign, as evidenced by the Republican convention, is geared to incite the worst in the American people and to scare them into voting for him.
Assuming Trump's impossibility is the surest path to his inevitability. And if this concern is for nothing, we can have a hearty laugh about it on November 9th. I'll buy the drinks. Until then, there is no joke worth the cost.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has five challenges she faces in her acceptance speech. Not one of them has to do with her GOP rival Trump. The first is personal, very personal. She has to make people want to vote for her not just because she's the most savvy, experienced, prepared and knowledgeable about foreign and domestic policy issues, which she is. But because they like her.
I humbly suggest that my "Bernie or Bust/Never Hillary" friends (of which I have several) try the same thought experiment: Are you ready? Close your eyes and imagine you wake up the day after the elections to discover that Donald Trump will be the next president.
Greatness, above all else, requires that we have the wisdom, patience and humility to realize that in order to succeed and progress we need to incorporate the efforts of all -- not just those we've deemed worthy to be members of our tribe.
I am an idealist and I fight for what I believe in, but I am also a realist. Either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton will be elected president.
Donald Trump is a monster, a buffoon, an ignorant orange clown, a sociopath and a narcissist. He is racist and misogynist. He has so little impulse co...
To see what the Trump/Clinton matchup really means, it's helpful to look not just at this week's Democratic convention but to another convention. Earlier in July, speaking to an energized crowd at the annual LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) gathering in Washington, D.C.
Research, including new work from our Human Cooperation Laboratory at Yale, suggests Trump may be successful precisely because of his hotheadedness and lack of carefully thought-out proposals. Being seen as uncalculating can make people trust you.
Even obsessive Star Wars fans have trouble describing Darth Vader's role within the evil Empire. He's not running the show. Emperor Palpatine is the one in charge. And at board meetings, Vader is simply one of several military high-ranking officials... although unlike the generals and lieutenants, Darth Vader doesn't really have an official title.
