Putin and the Social Media Threat To Our Democracy

The indictment handed down by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller of 13 individuals and 3 organizations is the first physical evidence we’ve seen that validates what every intelligence agency has been saying for over a year: that Vladimir Putin meddled in the 2016 election. The indictment reads in pertinent part: Defendant ORGANIZATION had a strategic goal

The Civil War In the Democratic Party

“Welcome back, my friends, to the primary that never ends.” – Michael Tomasky “Just when you thought it was safe to focus on 2018…”  – Peter Fegan By now the bombshell revelation by former DNC Chair Donna Brazile that the Clinton campaign was in cahoots with the DNC and ostensibly ran it has sent shockwaves throughout the

Bruce Bartlett Is Right

Never let it be said that Bruce Bartlett leaves anything in the bullpen. When it comes to speaking his mind, the word ambiguity is NOT in his vocabulary. Monday afternoon, Bartlett posted the following on Facebook: “There is no longer any doubt–ALL (100%) of Trump supporters are racists. If you don’t like it, fuck you.”

It’s Time for Bob Mueller To Subpoena Trump’s Tax Returns

Thanks to the revelation that Mini Me – AKA Donald Trump Jr. – met with a Russian official for the expressed purpose of collecting damaging information on Hillary Clinton in order to help his father win the 2016 election, we now have clear evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. This isn’t a

Dems Need To Bury The Past and Embrace The Future
