Four years after it began requiring TV stations to upload their records of political ad sales to a central government website, the Federal Communications Commission maintains a recordkeeping system that makes finding out who an ad's sponsor is feel like a treasure hunt.
Imagine that, for an attractive fee, you have been engaged as a consultant to the rich. They have a problem, or at least had a problem starting with President FDR. Our society celebrates formal equality and democracy (at least to the extent of holding regular elections), but the society is, in fact, grossly unequal in terms of wealth, and is becoming more so. How to protect and grow that wealth in a system where the mass of less affluent people vote (or at least could)? What are your recommendations?
Hillary Clinton Secretary Of State,
Thank you so much, for hearing my request, during this most important debate!
In them I see America's promise and I would never abandon them or the fight for their future in the land of the free and the home of the brave. I truly hope that America will make the right decision and elect Hillary Clinton our next president but if America falls prey to Trump's fear mongering and racist hatred, then I will stand as I always have and my voice will only grow stronger.
Because Donald Trump has continually accused the Clintons of turning the Clinton Foundation into a crime organization, I decided to investigate his charge. What I discovered was that Bill Clinton has built one of the most extraordinary non-governmental organizations in the world.
Universal Basic Income,
One of the biggest ironies about Donald Trump's Presidential campaign is his pledge to bring back jobs that have been outsourced to other countries--the major driver behind his support from blue-collar workers.
Are guys really so afraid of people with vaginas that they'd rather elect Donald Trump than an intelligent woman? I know it comes down to more than that.
Last Friday, a couple of friends and I saw something unusual: A police officer pulled over a car in downtown Washington, D.C. as it turned a busy corner. I've been in this city for many years, and the only time I can recall seeing a car pulled over for a traffic violation was when someone was talking on a cell phone and a police officer ordered him to hang up with a megaphone; when that failed, she pulled him over and wrote a ticket.
Join me in giving a big warm thanks to all the parents borrowing $58,440 a year to send their kid to Hofstra University, where an anticipated 100 million viewers will tune in Monday night for the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Lycoming County Coroner Charles Kiessling has begun listing overdose deaths as homicides, rather than accidental. While perhaps the difference may seem inconsequential -- a death by any other name is still a death -- ruling these deaths as homicides expands the likelihood that dealers will be arrested and charges will be filed.
Exclaimed President Juan Manuel Santos to the General Assembly in New York this week. A peace accord was signed on August 26, 2016 in Havana, Cuba, between the leaders of Colombia and the FARC, Colombia's foremost opposition group, and faces a referendum on October 2nd.
With the United States' voter registration rate among the lowest in the developed world, there's no doubt we need a National Voter Registration Day. But, if our country wants to work towards a goal of getting more Americans to vote, we also need a Voting Restoration Day.
The first presidential debate on September 26 proved the need for that control as moderator Lester Holt was unable to keep Donald Trump from talking over his opponent and Hillary Clinton from occasionally using extra time.
As usual, Donald Trump stretched, distorted and outright denied the truth in the debate Monday night. Some of his biggest whoppers were about taxes: both his own and his plans for everyone else's.
The final countdown has begun to the 2016 presidential election, and you can expect to be treated to an earful of carefully crafted sound bites and political spin.
This election is so much more than just Trump and Hillary. If you are registered to vote, you can become a "citizen lobbyist" on behalf of an issue you deeply care about and substantially change this country on November 8!
Air Force One,
Amid a tumultuous U.S. election season brimming with insults, xenophobia and conspiracy theories, the Washington establishment must somehow consider the bigger picture.
Gays, blacks, Hispanics, women, immigrants, Muslims, Jews, and everyone else who is not a white, natural-born American protestant have much to fear from this agenda and worldview. It is time everyone wakes up and realizes it.
Monday night was a good one for Hillary Clinton. She played a sort of low risk, preventative defense in her first bout with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. With a few exceptions, she never went for Trump’s jugular with what political pundits call “zingers.” Instead, she...
Twitter has been used by Donald Trump for years. He has long been known to make crazy rants using the social media platform.
