Vote theft in 2016 Primary(update)

From my friend Elliot Crown, who has been protesting about Hillary Clinton for several months. This chart, vetted by folks in the activist group NY Primary Problems, shows discrepancies between exit polls in primary states and the actual counts of votes. As Elliot’s post reminds everyone visiting the NY Primary Problems page, there have been unique […]

Another reason to vote against HRC

This meme has gotten a real workout over the past few weeks as a Hillary talking point. The implication is that if the Senate won’t confirm Obama’s pick for SCOTUS as a replacement for Antonin Scalia, we should all vote for HRC because she’ll put Obama in the position. *sigh* One of the problems I […]

A Pox on the NY Democratic Party

  New York’s Democratic Party (and the New York GOP) are both living in the past. This is NOT sour grapes (okay, it’s slightly overripe grapes). I’m stating this in response to yesterday’s Presidential primary in NY State, which saw Hillary Clinton snag 58% of the vote over Bernie Sanders. But that number, though indicative […]

It’s Bernie or… Trump??(updated)

The GOP takes back the White House

Prepare to say Hello to President Willard Romney (?!) This is a scenario under which we have a three-candidate race for the White House come November. Some caveats: First, this is NOT my original thought going here. It was posted on Huffington Post a few hours ago, and if I find the link, I’ll repost it. […]

VOTE FOR TRUMP NOW!!!

If you’ve been reading this blog, you know I’ve posted multiple pro-Bernie Sanders items over the past few months. I’m not a fan of Hillary and I’m not a fan of The Donald (or any of his GOP rivals). I need to explain that I’m posting pro-Bernie information out of a sense of fair play. The piece […]
