Peter B. LaMontagne

The OPM hack put them even further ahead by identifying 21 million American adults that have applied to work for the Federal government. No doubt espionage for China will remain the primary use for this data, but just as we update our view of identity in the 21st century so too might the PRC update its plans the use of such data.

Hillary Clinton Should Exude Feminine Power

Kathleen Schafer | Posted 09.10.2015 | Politics
Kathleen Schafer

What Ms. Clinton did in asking to be respected rather than cherished, is to dismiss feminine power. She not only rejected a key source of her power, she dismissed a whole set of qualities that are needed to address the issues facing our society.

Today we launched a campaign will make it possible for all of America to be great. Not just Silicon Valley or Hollywood. Not just Nashville or Broadway. Not just the heartland or the White Mountains. But even Washington, D.C. too. Today we have launched a campaign to give us a government we can be proud of again.

Donald Trump Has a Point on Raising Taxes

James Resnick | Posted 09.09.2015 | Entertainment
James Resnick

Donald Trump is bombastic, yet for all his faults, he manages to reject the Republican Party's religious proclivity for tax cuts. He is wildly irrational, though his tax-increasing stance does appear to show a glimmer of prudence.

Mike Weisser

They have two things in common. Each state contains at least one city with a murder rate at least four times the national average -- Oakland, Detroit, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Newark; and each state is home to a Republican Presidential candidate: Fiorina, Carson, Kasich, Walker, Christie.

Trump Pleads "No Mas" to Spanish Speakers

David Rivera | Posted 09.04.2015 | Latino Voices
David Rivera

Trump has no more right to be President then to tell me and my fellow countrymen to stop speaking Spanish or for that matter any other language. So to Trump I say "No Mas." And as our late and great Civil Rights leader Cesar Chavis once proclaimed - "HUELGA."

Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have legitimate shots at becoming the 45th president of the United States, unlike my ex Donna, who probably won't ever be president of anything, let alone the free world. Here's a comparison of the three.

Dear Pundits, Wake Up -- Donald Trump Could Very Well Win The GOP Primary

Buck Wargo

Donald Trump isn't going to be the next President. Heck, I've even said that he absolutely needs to drop out of this election. But he's definitely here to stay for the GOP primary. Get used to it.

The Unlock Congress Candidate

Michael Golden | Posted 09.03.2015 | Politics
Michael Golden

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have bemoaned the corrosive power of money in our political system, albeit through varying campaign styles and word choices. But that statement came from someone else. Someone most Americans have never heard of.

The Paradox of Donald Trump

Jeff Wald | Posted 09.03.2015 | Entertainment
Jeff Wald

The sad irony is that Trump is the exact opposite of what America wants/needs him to be. He is not a straight talker; he is telling us simple things that some want to be true. He is not an anti-establishment outsider; he panders more than any politician.

There has been a great deal of speculation about Joe Biden's intentions as the leaves begin to turn. Will he run for the White House a third time or will he ride out on a high note, perhaps to be the next Secretary of State should a Democrat win in 2016?

Why America Should Thank Donald Trump

Nora Turriago | Posted 08.31.2015 | Entertainment
Nora Turriago

Trump has learned how to channel this so-called passion to appeal to a specific demographic that has, in turn, propelled him to the front lines of the Republic Party. Unfortunately, that passion is fueled by the dangerous concoction of hate, anger, and ignorance

Why Bernie Sanders Is Best on Women's Issues

Heather Gautney | Posted 08.29.2015 | Politics
Heather Gautney

Many people believe that electing a woman president will help. I'm not so sure. Does breaking glass ceilings constitute a real political strategy -- that's capable of improving women's lives? And does voting one's gender really translate to voting one's interest?

Jorge Ramos, who became and American citizen in 2008, takes his role as a journalist seriously. He left his job as a reporter in Mexico because he didn't want to be told what to say. He has succeeded beyond his dreams in reporting on the issues and concerns of his audience.

Donald Trump's Endgame

Stu Kreisman

FOX and the Republican elites have been playing the long game in the shadows. They thought they had their men in Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. What they didn't foresee was a celebrity billionaire with nothing to lose. Trump was also playing the long-game except right out in the open for all to see. And he is the one who might very well succeed.
