Sat, 22 Oct 2016 19:10:40 +0000

Here’s what she said about her tax plans: “We are going to go where the money is.” And she knows where the money is. It’s where she gives her speeches. –Stephen Colbert Bonus Quote: At one point, Hillary Clinton even brought up how Trump said the Emmys were rigged because “Celebrity Apprentice” never won one. […]

Hillary Clinton Finally Finds A Job She Can Handle At Al Smith Dinner

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 00:57:08 +0000

Hillary Clinton botched health care reform terribly as First Lady, setting us back a generation. She was an atrocious Senator, taking the wrong position on the big issues of the day, including the Iraq war and the Patriot Act, while spending her time introducing legislation such as a bill to make flag burning a felony […]

Final Presidential Debate Shows Neither Candidate Is Acceptable

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 02:46:03 +0000

The final presidential debate (transcript here, with fact checking) provided further confirmation that neither major party candidate is fit to be president, but Hillary Clinton is a far better debater than Donald Trump. Even when Trump had a valid point against Clinton, he lacked the ability to stay on target, drifting into irrelevances and lacking […]

Re Wikileaks and Clinton: If There Was Ever Any Doubt That Thomas Friedman Is Still A Wanker…

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 20:03:00 +0000

Thomas Friedman has long been considered a wanker by many of his left for his centrist views and support for the status quo, including his support for the Iraq war. In 1992 Duncan Black called him the “one true wanker of the decade.” Alternet followed up with a look at ten of his dumbest “big […]

Presidential Campaign Gets Even Sleazier

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 00:49:39 +0000

It is bad enough that the election campaign has become dominated by stories of Donald Trump sexually assaulting women. Now the National Enquirer is preparing to run a story on Hillary Clinton: Hillary Clinton is a secret sex freak who paid fixers to set up illicit romps with both men AND women! That’s the blockbuster […]

Further Revelations Worsen Email Scandal And Demonstrate Clinton Dishonesty & Corruption

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 00:13:23 +0000

The evidence continues to increase that, regardless of how the presidential election comes out, we will have a dishonest and crooked president in the White House. It is much more likely that it will be Hillary Clinton considering the death spiral which Trump’s campaign has gone into. Clinton continues to lead the race despite a […]

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 23:58:20 +0000

All four shows in the Berlantiverse have premiered on the CW Network for this season. (Spoilers ahead for those who are not up to date). The Flash returned with the long-anticipated Flashpoint story, and couldn’t keep up with the hype. Unfortunately it was all predictable that after saving his mother, some reason would come up […]

News Media’s Unbalanced Look At Trump Vs. Clinton Revelations

Sat, 15 Oct 2016 21:58:53 +0000

The news over the past week has been virtually non-stop coverage of Donald Trump. There is no question that the revelations which first confirmed everything suspected about Donald Trump’s view of women and then led to multiple reports of Trump sexually assaulting women deserves major coverage. However, there have also been revelations from the email […]

Americans Support Legal Abortion & Marijuana

Sat, 15 Oct 2016 01:34:06 +0000

Recent polls have shown that voters want the government out of their personal business, including support for keeping abortion legal and for legalized marijuana. The Hill reports on a poll on abortion rights: Political candidates, consultants and the media generally misunderstand the politics of abortion rights. They tend to believe either that most voters oppose […]

Record Number Doing Google Searches For Write-In Voting

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 23:20:20 +0000

With both major political parties nominating candidates who are unacceptable for the presidency, I’ve noted before that more people than usual are looking at third party candidates this year. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are both ethically unfit to be president, and neither are likely to address major issues such as the expansion the warfare […]

More Revelations On Clinton From Wikileaks

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 20:12:33 +0000

The latest round of email released by Wikileaks does not have the rumored bombshell which might end Clinton’s campaign (especially in light of Donald Trump’s recent problems), but does show her to be a typical dishonest politician who will say anything to get elected, with no real interest in progressive goals. Following is a summary […]

Quote of the Day: Jimmy Fallon On The Second Presidential Debate

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 01:23:25 +0000

Last night was the presidential town hall debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, and the audience was made up of undecided voters — or as they’re also known, the worst people to be in line behind at Baskin-Robbins. A man in the audience asked Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to say one positive thing […]

Trump Goes Nuclear And Clinton Channels Pence In Second Presidential Debate

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 01:29:56 +0000

No, the above picture does not show Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton singing a duet of Don’t Go Breaking My Heart or I Got You Babe. The second presidential debate (transcript here) was a perfect display of how absurd this year’s election is. It was inevitable that Donald Trump would come out the loser once […]

SciFi Weekend: Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Westworld, 12 Monkeys, Doctor Who

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 23:14:29 +0000

Entertainment Weekly interviewed Andrew Kreisberg about the second season of Supergirl, which returns this week on CW along with DC’S Legends of Tomorrow. He revealed that Supergirl will travel from her dimension to “our” dimension where The Flash, Arrow, and Legends live, but the universes are not combined. More excerpts from the interview: What’s going […]

Debate To Open With Trump Tape–What About Wikileaks Release On Clinton?

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 17:23:06 +0000

It looks like the fix is in. CNN reports that the first question will go to Hillary Clinton and be on the Trump videotape. They certainly should ask about the Trump tape, as what he said is inexcusable, but don’t leave out the Winkleaks Clinton email which further shows that what the left has been […]
