Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:39:44 -0500Until 1824, there were no popular votes in U.S. Presidential elections to determine the vote of the Electoral College for the President of the United States. During, and after 1824, unscrupulous Presidential candidates, such as Presidential Candidate and Secretary of State John Q. Adams, used the Electoral College to manipulate their successful selection as President through the U.S. House of Representatives. This was how Andrew Jackson lost the Election of 1824, when he won the popular vote and the Electoral vote. It looks like Hillary's long-arm can probably extend into the 2016 Presidential Election to arrange for California's 55 Electoral votes to go to her, even if Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump wins the California popular vote. Would this be a violation of the will of the California electorate? Read on for a cogent examination of these issues...
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 07:36:45 -0500Did you know that a great heart shines though its owner's personality? Think about it. Are you not drawn to be near people who smile, who are generous, happy, trustworthy, genuine, and true, as if they were a light and you were a moth? The light in them shines even brighter when the heart of a good person is in the body of a philosopher.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 13:37:26 -0500Allowing an outsider to run for President of the United States is believed to be the biggest mistake the Republican Party has made to date. Outside of electing President Nixon and having to impeach him; the Republican Party has struggled to gain diversity in their party for more than half-a-century. The leadership of the Republican Party refuses to change the projection of their party. The Republican Party continues to listen to old Party favorites from the 1940s and 1950's.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 13:37:24 -0500My opinion probably won't make a difference in the 2016 election, but it will allow us to see another side of the process. President Barack Obama is from my city. There are over four decades of popular candidates that reside in Chicago and President Obama happens to be one of them. The other ones are Jesse Jackson Jr., Sandy Jackson (Jesse Jr.'s wife), Danny Davis, Bobby Rush, and Luis Gutierrez is the Congressman. In the case of Jesse Jr., who he is a former Congressman and his wife a former Chicago Alderman--who no longer serves. Another prominent leader and Mayor of Chicago was the first black mayor Harold Washington. He died suddenly during work and never regained consciousness. So, Chicago has offered up many political leaders; including former Senator Carol Moseley-Braun, who is the first and only black woman to win a Senate seat. Moseley-Bran, did not win her second election back in 1996 due to election funding irregularities.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 07:04:22 -0500During the third and final 2016 Presidential Debate between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Donald J. Trump, Mr. Trump was asked if he'd honor the election if he lost. He said he wasn't sure, we shall see, and then when asked again by the moderator to qualify that statement he doubled-down and is now taking heat for it. Some, including Hillary Clinton said she thought that was "Horrifying" which I guess is a nice term only a week after Halloween when voting takes place.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 14:14:45 -0500Wondering where the Republican Party started to go wrong. If you look at history you will have your answer. The world has watched as the Republican Party of a span of 40 years has gone downhill, based on its own accord. A total re-establishing of what they represent is in order. If there is a push to create an alt-right party then say it. Nothing is more corrupt than sneaking around and not telling the American people that you expect to become an alt-right party. It is apparent that the GOP has some explaining to do when it is all said and done this fall.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 14:09:34 -0500While looking at the candidates that we normally allow to run for President of the United States; there is no vetting for this job. The Constitution allows for us to be 35-years-old, a naturalized citizen, and lived in the United States for14 years. That is the lowest requirements for any job I've ever seen. We claim the job of President is the highest and most important job in the land--and we don't ask for a drug test, an application, a credit report, no taxes, no background test of any kind. It's the only job in the nation; that I am aware that you do not need more scrutiny than what the Constitution allows for the President.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 14:09:04 -0500No one would have believed it had it not been for Police Officer Frank Serpico in New York, who testified against officers in the ranks, who were seemingly more and more corrupt, and participating in criminal activity. It only took one person to come forward. In the Rodney King beating four police officers in Los Angeles decided to change their posture and go against The Blue Code of Silence in that case. Can the same thing happen in other police departments all over the country and can change become a thing of the future and effectively change the notorious cultures within our police departments--those are the questions.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 08:34:09 -0500If you exhibit national pride in 2016, you're labeled a jingoistic hoodlum or a xenophobic barbarian. You're regarded as an unsophisticated, uneducated, artless fool clinging to a dusty print of Norman Rockwell's America. You are inwardly pitied and outwardly mocked for being so very backward, provincial and unrefined. How on earth did we get here?
Mon, 17 Oct 2016 08:50:03 -0500Doing laundry is probably the most mundane chore that man is regulated to by their wives. Every week it is my dutiful obligation to keep the sanctity of marriage that I obediently comply in venturing off to the laundromat. In keeping with those never ending honey do lists there is no respite from "when you finish could you do this.
Mon, 17 Oct 2016 07:04:27 -0500Wow, isn't this 2016 Presidential Election Campaign crazy? Hillary Clinton is running around like a man-hating feminist and her campaign is attacking Donald Trump on issues that are rather hilarious. I mean come on already, Donald Trump is the ultimate Alpha Male Billionaire boys club member - what does America want a weak pansy-ass man who has coward down to be walked over by the feminist movement? That certainly wouldn't be a leader I'd want to lead the United States of America in the age of Nuclear Terrorism. BTW - nuclear terrorism era only exists because of mistakes made by the Obama Administration, UN, IAEA, US State Department and this notion of "win their hearts and minds" by rolling over and giving them whatever they want in the Iran Nuke Deal negotiations.
Fri, 14 Oct 2016 14:06:03 -0500There is no provision in the United States Constitution that would permit the people of the United States from refusing to elect a President. Essentially, if a single vote is cast, the one who receives that one vote would become President. No one has conceived and codified into law what to do if not a single vote is cast.
Thu, 13 Oct 2016 09:51:23 -0500The articles that I read are trying to dismiss what feminism means and disparage the women who have been considered fighting for women's rights. This season of political nonsense and for the first time having a strong woman running for President of the United States is coming under attack--and I want to assess why it's happening.
Wed, 12 Oct 2016 15:24:17 -0500There are times when the media has a number of things that they focus on, and then there are others when this is not going to be the case. Instead, they can have one area that will take centre stage, so to speak.

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 10:43:27 -0500As of lately the media has portrayed much chaos, all at an immensely alarming rate, and not just local predicaments, but major events taking place globally. Everyday you hear news of "Shootings" "Riots" "Attacks" etc. Simply put, its violence affecting vast amounts of people.
Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:51:07 -0500There are a great many intelligent American Voters who know the difference between what is right, and what is wrong; between what is moral and what is immoral; between what is deceitfully criminal and what is not. I also believe that there are a great many voters in 2016 who are ambivalent about what their choice will be between two candidates for the U.S. Presidency on November 9th. I believe that there is only one viable choice that can be made to ensure that the American doesn't go down the sewage drain any further than it has during the last eight years. It is really a basic different as clearly denoted as between daylight and pitch darkness, as between the blackness of mortal sin and the clean whiteness of the driven snow. All human beings have that precious gift from God to discern this basic difference. Read on for a further understanding of this difference.
Fri, 07 Oct 2016 07:43:09 -0500These are trying times. There is a lot of hatred and bitterness around. Don't let hate infect your heart, nor allow bitterness to ruin relationships. We are witnessing hatred on a massive scale, caused by various incidents. "We cannot let hatred spread" was a headline in a recent newspaper. A racist is a person who hates the person of another race, and can be a bigot, a bully, making insensitive jokes and jibes about others, seeking to belittle them. Jesus Christ calls disciples to be peacemakers, or reconcilers. Who says you are better than others? We hear people say, "I am proud of being a Scot" - but did we have any choice? If I hate because of culture, colour, or accent, it is because I am ignorant and in the darkness, and I am blind and cannot see.

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 10:27:11 -0500Yes, There Are Dozens - I'm Stopping At 10 I know this article is going to cause most Never-Trumpers to roll their eyes and start mumbling about principles and temperament, but someone has to take the initiative to state the obvious. I hope my message gets past the initial reaction of "not another one".
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:08:03 -0500Well, like 50% of the 81 million Americans who watched the first face-to-face presidential debate of the 2016 Election, I turned it off after about 25-30 minutes. Why you ask? Well, it was just nonsense, political theater in my view. One thing I can say is that Hillary Clinton described something so similar to what Obama promised he'd do to create jobs during the 2008 election. He implemented much of his promised economic plan, but to no avail.
Tue, 27 Sep 2016 07:33:42 -0500When American History is taught there is an oversight. An oversight that has universal consequences of how our government has morphed into this self serving bureaucracy that we have today. What is being purposely omitted in every history class pertains to the original 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:32:48 -0500The presidential debates have always represented the game-changing moments requiring a change of tactics by the candidate trailing in the polls. And this is why underdog Donald Trump will most likely do the so-called unthinkable and transform himself into a genuine statesman to charm and endear himself to the millions of undecided voters that he needs to win on Election Day.
Tue, 20 Sep 2016 08:10:27 -0500Governing a group of people or nation is a heinous task for any individual in the community occupying a leadership position. However, it is also an honor that few in the community can have. Thus, the office is properly referred to as an 'honourable office'. The sole aim of leadership is to bring relief to the subjects while solving the challenges that they face in their everyday life. The holder of such key office is supposed to equitably use the resources in the nation or society for the advancement of the socio-economic development of the people.

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 08:32:12 -0500In these days of big news media and politics if a political party does not have its, "Owned Media" they will struggle to get their message out past the political parties that do own their political organization news media outlets. The news media outlets of today can without a doubt be seen as political organizations owned by politicians that have risen up to be apart of large groups and control the political party. Many of these politically owned national media outlets donate huge amounts of cash to the political party they are owned by
Thu, 15 Sep 2016 22:49:13 -0500Socialism in Indonesia is unique and different than any other type of Socialism in the world. In this article we are going to examine the difference between Indonesian Socialism, Democratic Socialism and Central Planning Socialism or Communism.
Tue, 13 Sep 2016 08:22:23 -0500This 2016 presidential race demonstrates just how awful our so called democracy has become. It is proof positive that Americans have help create and sustain a delusional democracy. If Americans want to reform and fix their political system, then they should boycott this presidential election and show the world their rejection of a corrupt, dysfunctional system that now serves the rich and powerful.
Mon, 12 Sep 2016 08:17:00 -0500Election Day is near. Now springs to life, more so than normally, an exaggerated sense of importance expressed by the liberal media of African-American voting in a presidential election. This baseless and erroneous agreement among these pontificators of race and politics in this country that winning the "black vote" by overwhelming numbers is paramount to any person seeking to be elected President of the United States, and especially so in 2016. Who, except for the left wing, liberal press corps gives a damned really about how many black votes Trump will or will not get? It simply is so far down the list of priorities that it barely weighs in on any discussion of election statistics if objectively considered. That election statistic is a long-time out-of-date, over-inflated assessment of the importance placed on who convinces blacks to vote for them. Primarily, the reason for this is that blacks are only a small minority of our population-a tad over 12 % (As Jerry Seinfeld would say, "Not that there's anything wrong with that!"), largely concentrated in the urban areas of Cleveland, Detroit, New York City, etc.,... it makes as much difference as a fat rat's patooty who blacks ultimately vote for.

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:20:48 -0500Recently, a commentator stated that Donald Trump's Immigration Policy doesn't speak for Americans, and his vengeance against Mexicans is wrong. Wow, when I heard that I thought, this individual is completely missing the boat and obviously a hard-core left-leaning college brain-washed Hillary Clintonite who only listens to Cable TV news like CNN - or the Clinton News Network.
Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:19:52 -0500Whereas, it is true we need to deport illegal aliens who've come to the US and committed crimes, as Donald Trump notes, we also need to get an idea of how many total illegal aliens are here, where they are, and who the heck they are - we do not know that. When President Obama took control of the Census and quickly hired it out to ACORN we got back impossible statistics proving the US Census was just a mess of bureaucracy - they were unable to count the number of illegal aliens, and ended up with other statistics that were so far out of whack with the Tiger Files (tend lines of population growth) that the data was unusable.
Thu, 08 Sep 2016 08:45:13 -0500Hillary Clinton is going to be the next U.S. president. It gives me no joy to say that. What does that mean for you and your assets/investments? That's the only thing that matters at this point
Fri, 02 Sep 2016 13:26:38 -0500Is this an hour to pause and consider and think? Why? Well, I have never seen our world in such dire straits with warfare and suffering and bloodshed and pain abounding globally. Do we need a fresh prophetic voice today to lead and direct and guide the peoples? By prophetic voice I mean a word from a man who has taken time to hear from Almighty God and who has the courage to deliver that word. If such a voice was raised up and spoke, would the peoples give heed and listen and pay attention? Or, would they tell the prophet to be quiet and go away as they did in the days of Amos? God never does anything without first revealing His plan to His servants the prophets. The prophet is a key to what God is doing.
Fri, 02 Sep 2016 07:17:48 -0500UK Independence Party leader, Nigel Farage stated on BBC, after the result was clear, that Brexit was an uprising against the big corporations and power brokers control. Thus, the victory was a 'victory for ordinary, hard-working people.' I think a great many ordinary, hard-working people voted to remain in the EU, so I believe there is less impact on this absolute part of Farage's statement. However, as we notice in the U.S. 2016 election cycle one of the main issues is corporate control and the 1% ultra wealthy have more influence on all issues, because they have money to bring the biggest clout vis-?-vis lobbyists and financial influence.
Thu, 01 Sep 2016 10:46:57 -0500There are several types of Socialism in the world, such as Centralized Socialism and Democratic Socialism which I have discussed in my previous articles. These socialistic ideas are mainly based on the aspect of humanity. In the first part of this article, I would like to discuss about Socialism in Indonesia, which is based more on a theological basis. I would call it Pancasila Socialism. What is Pancasila? Let us start with a little background about Indonesia and Pancasila.

Yet, no one has come forth asking the right questions let alone offer answers to what the hell is going on in the world today. If this past years Presidential primary season was any indication where questions should still be asked has proven the United States is...
Mon, 29 Aug 2016 10:47:41 -0500When people don't like you, they look for your dark side undermining positive things about you. So much attention on Trump more than on his opponent, which implies he is the man to beat.
Mon, 29 Aug 2016 06:57:09 -0500Speaking to a nearly all-black audience, Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton's Vice Presidential Candidate, said that Donald Trump is pushing KKK values. Wow, I cannot believe this aggressive BS, the Democrats really love to call their competitors "Racists". Now then, do we really want a President who goes around calling everyone a racist that does not politically agree with him or her? I sure don't, especially since we already have that now, and it has set race relations back generations due to President Barack Obama's political rhetoric. Let's talk.
Wed, 24 Aug 2016 11:48:03 -0500I will never understand the deep-seeded hatred that it must take to brutalize another human being; particularly when it occurs without just cause and is driven by racial injustice. I realize this is a very touchy subject no matter which side of the debate you are on. But, at the very minimum, anyone who cares anything about humanity must take a stance and make a commitment to stop the violence.
Wed, 24 Aug 2016 09:02:45 -0500In my previous articles about Socialism we've discussed about Democratic Socialism in Scandinavia; its definition, its funding and its impact to the people well-being. In this article we are going to examine some of the challenges and how would it affect its sustainability in the future.
Wed, 24 Aug 2016 06:42:17 -0500The Federal Bureau of Investigation or notorious inept FBI tells us that they cannot prove intent when it comes to the Clinton email scandal (having home servers used for official State Department business, and often top secret communication). The DOJ (Department of Justice) will not hire an independent investigation of Hillary's "pay-to-play" scandal for which there is now a ton of evidence with the recent 15,000 additional emails and Hillary Clinton's schedule for meeting with donors to the Clinton Foundation while she was Secretary of State.
Wed, 24 Aug 2016 06:40:57 -0500Every time Hillary Clinton is asked about her corrupt activities, she blames it on Right-Wing Conspiracy Theorists, but this attempt to divert attention is ridiculous. Who knows maybe she fell down and hit her head or something, as often those with damaged noggins start wearing aluminum hats and think everyone is out to get them - paranoia is a real problem in our society. Of course; "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you," which was a famous quote from Joseph Heller.
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 09:15:08 -0500In my previous article, "Is Socialism the Road to Communism?", I have mentioned Bernie Sanders who has single-handedly brought the term "democratic socialism" into contemporary American political lexicon and shaken its landscape by citing the "success" of several Scandinavian countries as the model of Socialism, which is also called the Nordic system.
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 07:43:14 -0500Socialism has become the new buzzword in recent American political lexicon. What is socialism, how many types are there in our world and how does it impact the condition of a country thus the well being of its people. Does it work or how should it work? This is the first out of my three articles about Socialism namely, "Is Socialism the road to Communism or Totalitarianism?", "Democratic Socialism" and "Pancasila Socialism" that I have written.
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 06:48:58 -0500Many people voted for Barack Obama because they believed it was proof that we in the US have conquered race-relations - unfortunately, once elected and after 8-years we see that race-relations are worse than they were in the late 70s and early 80s, basically we lost nearly 4-decades of improvement in race-relations. Now then, what might hiring Hillary Clinton as president do for male-female relations or gender relations? Personally, I like women and wouldn't want to live in a world without them, and the last thing I'd want is to have a war of the planets,...
Mon, 22 Aug 2016 10:49:30 -0500Trump. People at the other end of the spectrum are happy to hear someone express the rage they feel because their lives are not the way they would like to see them. Most of these people don't dare to share their anger or lash out at anyone who could possibly be responsible for their lives being a mess but suffer in resignation.
Mon, 22 Aug 2016 06:42:36 -0500With less than 80 days left until the 2016 Presidential Election CNN and the rest of the left-wing media is purporting high polling numbers for Hillary Clinton and stacking their commentators and interviewees with hardened pro-Clinton bias. Unfortunately, the viewers of these networks are tuning out. At first the networks assumed it was due to the 2016 RIO Olympics, but now they see it wasn't only the Olympics infringing on their previously solid viewership ratings - it's also due to the fact that their fake polls and attempts at leftist brain-washing. Lesson to the leftist networks; "you cannot fool most of the people most of the time" for long.
Fri, 19 Aug 2016 15:46:47 -0500There are some great lessons in the Presidential campaign of Donald Trump. This is a man whose brand was known in the marketplace, but more as a sideshow. He was known as financially successful, but not in a traditional way.
Fri, 19 Aug 2016 06:38:53 -0500Not long ago, I was speaking to a 'Hillary Clinton for President Supporter' with a bumper sticker on his electric car. When I questioned him and asked him about integrity when it came to the Clintons he explained to me that the conspiracy theorists on the right were making it all up about Hillary's email scandal, and Clinton Foundation - simply because the Republicans don't have any other way to beat her. Well, I just had to laugh because the Clinton's lack-of-ethics is somewhat legendary in America. Let's dig up some older issues to prove my point.
Thu, 18 Aug 2016 06:29:29 -0500Democrats won't seem to come to the realization that Hillary Clinton's mental health condition is quickly deteriorating - and one shouldn't be surprised with her campaign schedule, she isn't getting much sleep. With her previous slips and falls, mini-seizures and occasional periods of apparent disorientation - can she keep up the facade? Bill Clinton isn't in much better shape either and mind you Hillary Clinton told supporters in one of her epic speeches that Bill was going to run her economic agenda, the same man who fell asleep during Hillary's acceptance speech at the DNC. I guess being asleep on the job is better than sleeping with interns on the job?
Wed, 17 Aug 2016 08:07:36 -0500Article 370 is a temporary provision that grants special autonomous status to J&K. All the laws and provisions of the constitution of India which are applicable to other states are not applicable to Jammu and Kashmir. According to Article 370, except for defense, finance, foreign affairs, and communications, The Parliament of India needs the concurrence of state government for applying all other laws.
Tue, 16 Aug 2016 13:06:16 -0500Never before in the history of this nation has there been such a sense that something is drastically wrong in America today. Now we have a Presidential candidate that with all his faults has hit a nerve with the American public today. A nerve that resonates the growing tempest that has seeped into every fabric of American society.
Mon, 15 Aug 2016 14:14:49 -0500Voter-shaming and the overzealousness by way of enforcing of fear upon the "undecided" voter by getting us to concede to the "lesser of two evils" doesn't work. It's didn't in 2004 and it won't now. This approach stinks. It's time people sought out a better alternative approach or leave us be.
Mon, 15 Aug 2016 10:19:54 -0500Group anger can quickly ignite during emotionally-charged settings like political rallies. Why is this so and what are the root causes? Does it lead to anything productive?
Mon, 15 Aug 2016 07:04:02 -0500My friends, who are Catholic, have five daughters who have chosen very different life styles. My son-in-law is half African/American and half Italian. Today, many American families are composites of different ethnic and religious backgrounds. Yet, Donald Trump's followers rail against immigration and these modern American values. Under this assault, can America retain its values?
Mon, 15 Aug 2016 06:45:25 -0500With Hillary's medical conditions it is possible, highly possible, that if Clinton is elected president she will not be able to serve out her first-term as president, thus it would be Tim Kaine who would become Commander in Chief. Unfortunately, we don't know much about Tim Kaine, oh sure, those living in Virginia, especially Richmond VA know of him, as he was a city councilman, mayor and later governor of the state, but the rest of the country certainly hasn't heard much about him. Without Hillary Clinton's medical records being open to the public, how can the voters be sure she will even be able to serve as President of the United States.
Fri, 12 Aug 2016 11:16:48 -0500While fear rises among the great conservative base about your ability to contain words of thought, a few lessons from presidential campaign history may serve well to help advance your campaign as the 2016 Republican Nominee. This article will attempt to provide several helpful and relevant examples.

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 06:43:30 -0500Everyone seems to believe that Democracy is awesome and that a Democratic Society is best and they point to the United States as their example - yes, we are a great nation, with lots of freedoms and liberties and we have about the best deal going so far in human history when it comes to those attributes - only one problem, we are not an actual democracy, we are a Republic and we are a Republic for a reason. Don't get me wrong "majority rule" has its place but it is a slippery slope as well.
Fri, 05 Aug 2016 07:05:28 -0500In this the year of political turmoil where distention, corruption, and a whole assortment of improbable events has forever tarnished the American democratic process, many of us are questioning where is the national outcry in the aftermath of one of the most corrupt democratic primaries in our nations history? The American people should be demanding a complete disqualification of not only their chosen candidate but a total recall of every democratic primary through-out the United States.
Thu, 04 Aug 2016 06:55:16 -0500If it's OK for a black comedian to make a joke about White People's Day on a major U.S. holiday like the 4th of July, Independence Day, then it should be equally OK for a white comedian to make a joke about Black People's Day on a major U.S. holiday like Martin Luther King Jr. Day, right? Don't get mad at me, I'm both white and black (mixed race), and I'm not a comedian. I'm just an inquisitor. Surely, you've heard about comedian Chris Rock's Tweet to his followers in which he said, "Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren't free but I'm sure they enjoyed fireworks".
Thu, 04 Aug 2016 06:50:40 -0500Well, as we enter the home stretch of the 2016 Presidential Elections we see that Hillary Clinton with the help of the DNC rigged the primary election (Cite: DNC Email Scandal FBI report). Mr. "Feel the Bern" Bernie Sanders may not have been the right choice for an American President, but he was the wisdom of the crowd choice for the Democrats, and without making any statements of what that means when assessing the left's rank and file or the troubling reality in all that - Bernie and his supporters got burned, more like torched actually.
Wed, 03 Aug 2016 07:56:49 -0500The rich got richer and the poor got poorer, and the Middle Class virtually disappeared. Trade, the import export industry, were doing well and the Banks flourished. The merchant class was powerful. It was a consumer society. The standard of living went up. The status symbol was a second home in the hills. It was referred to as a summer house. It was a covetous, materialistic, affluent society, where real estate flourished. There were many takeovers. There was superficial prosperity, serious social abuses, severe oppression of the poor, lawless judges, and dishonest merchants. Now, Almighty God raised up prophets who proclaimed a challenging word and pointed out what would happen if they did not change. They did not change and it all happened. Pause and consider and think. Look at what is happening globally in these times.
Wed, 03 Aug 2016 07:37:23 -0500We have election laws in this country, and for good reason. We need fair elections as that is one of the true underpinnings of our foundation in the US. But what happens with the election process is circumvented and favors one candidate over another or over all others? What happens when we have voting irregularities, special one-time rules at polling places, or even major parties claiming to be non-bias, but secretly conspiring to put a specific candidate ahead of the rest while lying to the American People? Let's talk.
Tue, 02 Aug 2016 10:28:35 -0500Black Lives Matter has been in the news recently. But is their message about blacks or something else? This article answers that question
Mon, 01 Aug 2016 14:49:30 -0500White men do not seem well disposed toward Hillary Clinton. Why are they so down on this well qualified, smart, experienced and distinguished woman? Is it due to unrelenting distortions by the other side, by Fox News and a vast Right Wing conspiracy? Whatever the cause, I was recently called upon to bring my fellow white guys to their sense - by my wife. Here's my attempt to do so. I can add to it, so feel free to send in your suggestions of additional reasons to support a splendid person who incidentally will then become our first woman president.
Mon, 01 Aug 2016 14:48:15 -0500Recently the term "politically correct" has come to the fore in presidential campaign haggling. The term generally means speaking in ways which do not offend any individual or group. Certain politicians take pride in flouting convention by saying whatever comes into their minds without concern for who is offended. Instead, they say whatever occurs to them and it is up to others who might feel offended to just grow up.
Mon, 01 Aug 2016 07:45:07 -0500The GOP convention is as good as over with the acceptance of Donald as the Republican candidate to face Hillary Clinton.It was not a smooth convention as there was a lot of acrimonies. Many, particularly from the old guard led by Mitt Romney are miffed at the success of Donald Trump.
Mon, 01 Aug 2016 06:59:50 -0500We were told by The Hillary Clinton, The Bill Clinton and The Bernie Sanders 2016 DNC speeches that the Bernie-Hillary relationship was strong and they were united in a common cause. Wow, you could have fooled me with that political Kumbaya rhetoric, especially judging by the fact that the Bernie supporters boo'ed Clinton and just about everyone who endorsed her the first night of the convention, later they protested in the streets of Philly - hardly a rock-solid relationship more like a lack-there-of if you ask the non-partisan observer. Let me discuss some more evidence of a huge Democrat Party Divide and just how serious this is for Hillary Clinton's campaign winning the 2016 Presidential Election.
Mon, 01 Aug 2016 06:56:58 -0500If you are a Bernie Sanders' supporter, and I am not, then you got royally screwed by the DNC, and yet, if you listen to Bernie Sanders' speech on YouTube, about 32 minutes long; "Full Speech Bernie Sanders at DNC. July 25, 2016 - Democratic National Convention 2016. Philadelphia," you will see that Bernie himself didn't even condemn the actions of the DNC, rather lauds Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Warren and others - including Hillary Clinton. He's right when he calls it a "political revolution" and he noted that Hillary and Himself had worked out a new Democrat Platform in trade for his support and promise to try to bring over his supporters to the Clinton-Kaine ticket.
Mon, 01 Aug 2016 06:53:56 -0500Perhaps you as well were a bit taken aback by the 2016 DNC speeches. I sure was. In fact, Congressman Keith Ellison, who happens to be a Muslim and actually was sworn into office using a Koran to show he is a solid American and we believe in freedom of and freedom from religion had this to say about Donald Trump during the 2016 DNC meeting in Philadelphia; "Donald Trump wants voter ID laws to prevent Blacks and Hispanics from voting," and I ask you, what the heck is he talking about.
Thu, 28 Jul 2016 06:54:52 -0500There are serious questions that need to be asked in light of this years Democratic primary season. And, some we may never know the answers to. We can look back in history for it was on November 22, 1963 that JFK was assassinated by who many think was the lone shooter Lee Harvey Oswald.
Thu, 28 Jul 2016 06:39:11 -0500For a political party that wants to unite our country, there sure is a lot of divisive talk at the 2016 DNC. But exactly who were these speakers talking so negative about Donald Trump? Well, they were Democrat Politicians, no surprise there. They were union leaders whose lobbyists steer Democrat Politicians to serve their will over all of ours. They were people getting free-stuff from the government, who'd like that windfall to continue their way. They were presidents of non-profits, every social cause known to mankind receiving government assistance. They were so-called minority groups claiming victimhood -demanding a greater voice, even when they were represented by politicians in some of the highest government offices there speaking for them.
Thu, 28 Jul 2016 06:37:56 -0500The 2016 RNC meeting in Cleveland went off without a hitch, no violence, no problems - but that is not the case at the 2016 DNC meeting in Philly. Residents are sick and tired and just want everyone to leave to return their city back to normal. The mainstream leftwing media is not talking about the chaos in Philadelphia much, as they are trying to help the Democrat Party portray a sense of "Unity" even while Bernie Sanders' supporters are called "ridiculous" for not changing their votes to Hillary Clinton.
Thu, 28 Jul 2016 06:37:27 -0500It seems Donald Trump in one single comment, made in jest (sarcasm) has negated the entire premise of the Democrat National Convention (DNC) when he said; "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press." What he is saying here is; Hillary's illegal use of her email server is so serious to our national security, that it could change the outcome of our national elections. He's right, isn't he? Think about it.
Thu, 28 Jul 2016 06:35:24 -0500My only question is what will they win - the award for spewing the most baloney onto the American People - the prize for political hypocrisy - a certificate for political correctness - or perhaps, a self-commendation for best-bullies of the year, where everyone gets the certificate merely for breathing air and going along with the 1000s of "Strawman" debating points? Is this really the party we want to continue running our nation? ObamaCare is about to implode, College Tuition is growing 10-times as fast as inflation, and our economic recovery is mired in over-regulation, bad trade deals, and anti-business sentiment.
Wed, 27 Jul 2016 14:10:10 -0500Who votes for Trump and why? Do they have a certain profile?
Tue, 26 Jul 2016 06:31:19 -0500I've always believed socialism to be evil and totally against the individual and everything this great nation stands for, so how fitting that Hillary Clinton would choose Kaine as her running mate. If you will recall your Bible Studies you'll know that Able was a good guy and his brother, not so much. Tim Kaine might be a moderate looking middle of the road candidate, but he is a big-government believer and a socialist-thinker at heart. This shouldn't surprise us as he is a Catholic Gentleman and the Catholic Church has supported socialists throughout the church's history.
Mon, 25 Jul 2016 07:09:56 -0500Some believe that Tim Kaine is just the type of moderate that Hillary Clinton needs to secure the 2016 Presidential Election, I on the other hand disagree. First, Tim Kaine would make a better president than Hillary Clinton, but then again just about anyone would. Tim Kaine with his self-righteous, Harvard Law personality displacement appears to be a great 'attack dog' to go after Donald Trump so that Hillary doesn't have to play in the tit-4-tat political rhetoric muddy pit of negative comments and gotcha soundbite jabs - after all, it's not ladylike and the so-called feminist doesn't want to look like or be called a 'bitch' as that would turn-off voters - especially male voters.
Fri, 22 Jul 2016 06:39:03 -0500The Freedom of Information, (FOI) Act is universal in nature. It empowers people to use it in obtaining information from any government agency, ministry or parastatal. In Nigeria, the Act was eventually signed into law on May 28, 2011, by former president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan.
Thu, 21 Jul 2016 06:51:17 -0500We saw it in Australia as well when out first female Prime Minister copped it from the men and especially those on the other side of parliament. The problem with women leaders is they are vulnerable to these horrid attacks by hateful men who can't bear to see a woman succeed. Is it the result of jealousy, fear, shock, anger, or something else?
Wed, 20 Jul 2016 06:31:34 -0500As I watched the Republican National Convention on CSPAN and they had a non-political commentator asking questions of Delegates, Politicians, and phone calls from Republicans, Democrats and Independents, a few of each, equally distributed based on their call-in lines, it was quite telling each time someone called in to ask a question from the Democrat Line. The phone calls asked questions in the form of statements, the statement being some 2-3 minutes and the question forgotten until the commentator stopped them and asked; "specifically what is your question?"
Tue, 19 Jul 2016 06:22:30 -0500While people concern themselves with the upcoming elections and the candidates on offer it is the Spirit of the Universe that is in control. It directs and guides everyone so that the one who is finally elected will have the hand of God upon her or him. We are in the last days and the scenario we see before us is one that demonstrates the world-wide unrest and wars that are inevitable.
Wed, 13 Jul 2016 15:00:50 -0500U.S. voters have been led to believe that the only choices we have in government are Republican or Democrat. And yet, neither represents that view of America today. It's time for something different.
Mon, 11 Jul 2016 09:45:51 -0500'Et tu Brute', the last words of the Roman Dictator Julius Caesar to his friend Marcus Brutus at the moment of his assassination feels horribly current right now. Without naming names, one hardly has to, the shocking truth is that our politicians in the UK over the last week are capable of killing off their close political friends in a savage, ruthless way. Compare this to the Battle of the Somme, which we are currently commemorating, in which the noblest fought to take on a recognised enemy with enormous self-sacrifice...
Fri, 08 Jul 2016 09:29:56 -0500George Washington said, "Government is a dangerous servant, and a fearful master. It is fire!" He understood that politicians must be competent and moral. We who elect them must communicate with them in order to ensure that our government will produce the goodness and safety that we all should want.
Thu, 07 Jul 2016 10:12:04 -0500In politics, we typically think fiscally conservative and tax cuts for Republicans and wasteful spending and tax hikes for Democrats. But are our assumptions true?
Thu, 07 Jul 2016 09:30:24 -0500The Equal Protection Clause in the U.S. Constitution guarantees equal protection under the law and applies to any inequalities. There is a portion of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that prohibits discrimination by state governments. The clause grants all people "equal protection under the laws," which means that the states must apply the law equally and cannot give preference to one citizen or class of citizens over another. One class of citizens of a state should not be taxed to pay for a pension that they have no access to and that is superior to the one that they have. This is the precise definition of pension inequality and is unaccceptable.
Thu, 07 Jul 2016 06:41:45 -0500Not long ago, I had the opportunity at a 50th birthday party of speaking with a guest who was a California Democrat Delegate who had pledged for Bernie Sanders. She told me of her travels in Europe and bragged about the wonderful healthcare in Ireland and Italy where she was able to get care for free after having been in the country visiting for over 90-days. Well, that's just great - those two countries are on the verge of bankruptcy and are dragging down the entire EU, like Greece, Spain and Portugal - basically she had no clue how flawed her argument actually was.
Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:44:18 -0500It appears that a female Muslim may have been elected to the Federal Parliament in Australia. Anne Aly has been active in counter-terrorism and is a professor at Edith Cowan university where she achieved her doctorate in 2008. She is the founder of 'people against violent extremism' and has been inducted into the Western Australia's Women's Hall of Fame.
Wed, 06 Jul 2016 12:40:08 -0500The immediate and lasting effect of the Comey Clinton decision. When the elite class has a different set of laws than the working class, we now have a monarchy, rather than a republic. That's what we face in America.
Tue, 05 Jul 2016 12:36:15 -0500Can't decide who should be the next President? Most Americans are approaching this year's election feeling they have been given Sophie's choice, or worse, Hobson's choice. Answering these questions may help voters decide.
Tue, 05 Jul 2016 07:09:02 -0500The Australian elections have demonstrated that people here are fed up with political lies. The problem is the politicians appear to have an ego that gives them a right to say whatever they want in order to get elected. The effect is that the voter sees through them as they are not as naive as they once may have been.
Fri, 01 Jul 2016 15:33:55 -0500As the UK wakes up to the fact 51% of the population voted to leave the E.U. everyone is in agreement with one fact. The UK is going to change and the effects will be felt in every area of live from the little E.U. symbol on their number plates to how financial markets view the country and trade deals that need to be struck.
Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:20:17 -0500Britain broke itself from the European Union after being part of its initial stages from the year 1973, the BREXIT or Britain-Exit is seen as a shocker for a lot of countries and people of Britain as well, PM David Cameron has stepped down after the vote. What's Going On, our correspondent Marvin Gaye asks (Sorry for that) What is EU? Year is 1945-46; practically much of Europe has been destroyed, industries disappeared, cities practically turned to rubble, leaving the entire continent weak and vulnerable.
