The Most Frightening Thing This Election is that One Of Them Will Win

Share

Happy Halloween. And with the latest round of “scandals” ping-ponging between the candidates each week (Trump’s sexual misconduct, now Hillary’s emails), the more I dread what’s in store for us over the next four years (notice I did NOT say “four to eight” years.) Last February, despite being an enthusiastic Bernie supporter, I conceded that if the choice […]

Could 1990 Texas Governors Race Foretell a Surprise Win for Hillary There?

Share

The 1990 race for governor of Texas bears an eerie similarity to the Clinton/Trump race as the two are now statistically tied to win the Lone Star State, possibly foretelling a surprise Clinton upset.

BREAKING: Major Party Candidates are Duplicitous Frauds. Oh, and we’re all screwed

Share

There’s an old saying that “character” is who you are in private when no one is looking. Last week, WikiLeaks released thousands of emails belonging to Clinton campaign advisor John Podesta revealing (among other things) that what Clinton was telling cheering fans at her rallies or denying in those contentious televised debates was not what she […]

Mugsy’s Pre-Debate Analysis: Four Candidates. Zero Winners.

Share

Four candidates are left in the presidential race and all four have serious judgement issues that renders them ill-equipped to lead the most powerful nation on Earth.

Trump is the Living Embodiment of Plato’s ‘Republic’

Share

Someone at the DNC needs to go to jail. If the Clinton campaign wants Sanders voters, they must.

Share

Wikileaks revealed that the DNC actively undermined the Sanders campaign and likely disenfranchised *millions* of voters, yet all the Media… led by the Clinton campaign… is focused on is “who did the leaking” with no concern for the revelations themselves. That misbehavior DEMANDS prosecution to ensure the integrity of future elections.

The Media is acting “shocked” by Friday’s WikiLeaks revelation that the DNC actively took steps to assist the Clinton campaign over those of her rivals, but this was news to NO ONE, going back nearly a full year.

Why Sanders Endorsement of Hillary is Smart, maybe even brilliant

Share

Last week, Senator Bernie Sanders “finally” endorsed Hillary Clinton, much to the dismay of millions of Sanders supporters, but it was the smart… possibly even brilliant… thing to do, and my advice to him (as a Sanders supporter) is to do more of it. If I were Bernie, I’d be out there every day in support of […]

If Hillary Wants My Vote, here is what she must do.

Share

How many times have Hillary supporters (and Hillary herself) tried to guilt Bernie supporters into voting for her simply to “Stop Trump”? Following up on last weeks’ unanswered question of how Bernie supporters could possibly be expected to vote for Hillary without rewarding the questionable tactics of the DNC to suppress support for Senator Sanders… be it […]
