A Hillary victory in November does not solve the problem, but only gives a four-year delay to the next time that America plays Russian Roulette while pointing the gun on its immigrants, Muslim citizens, and non-white communities.
Mr. President, I hope you are right . I will lean on your words and hope that the America you know will prevail in one of its biggest challenges to come in November.
Unless you're old enough to join AARP, you probably don't know that the Cleveland Browns used to be a great football franchise, just as the GOP used to be a dominant political party.
The GOP's new big dog blew the whistle Thursday night for nearly an hour and a half and it was loud and shrill enough to reach the ears of every angry, resentful, disaffected white American. The tone was divisive, dark, dystopian and grim.
Donald Trump's message seems to be that Americans are a bunch of losers and that our country is in the toilet. He is quick to add that it's n...
News of the military coup in Turkey was dribbling in on Saturday afternoon when I was having lunch with a group of six friends in West Virginia. Sud...
Cruz, the Tea Party darling who rose to Conservative Republican prominence circa 2012, faced a brutal political journey to be sure, but a bright one as a leading Conservative senator and possible future President. That's all gone now.
The Trump Convention has been a strange mash-up of three previous moments in Republican history -- each of which ended tragically. First, most seminally, is Joe McCarthy's rise and fall, and the witch-hunt he unleashed.
When so much darkness seems to be surrounding our world, Donald Trump and Mike Pence would not only be the wrong equation for America, but more importantly, they would fail to add up to the dreams and hopes that our founders envisioned for our country.
It is no overstatement to note that with each passing day America is more the "Land of the Hypocrites and Barbarians" and less a land of morals and values than ever before. All this, while the world sits back and laughs.
The question I find interesting, in the wake of Ted Cruz's headline-making refusal to endorse Trump as a major speaker at "Trump's Convention," is jus...
Republican Presidential Nominee Donald J. Trump told reporters at a bowling alley Tuesday night that he will "get Obama outta" the White House if he's elected.
I can identify five strands of the American political experience which Trump drew from, magnified, made his own, and has now imposed on the American body politic. The first is the American fondness for conspiracy theories.
If 2016 has been a year for anything, it has been a year of turmoil. it has been a year in which the relations between national and international inst...
Trump's VP pick, Mike Pence, has a wife named Karen. Mrs. Pence developed a product called "THAT'S MY TOWEL!" I was first alerted to this by a piece published in Jezebel--a number of my readers sent me the link--about how Mrs. Pence decided the world problem she needed to fix was the fact that people might mix up towels.
