Posted by GregB on June 26, 2016 at 9:21 PM

The modern day phenomenon of Vermont senator Bernie Sanders is becoming legendary in the history of politics. With resistance from the political elite of both parties, the world of commerce, and the mainstream media, Sanders continues to stick to his guns and remains a viable candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination and President of the United States.

Debates are raging as to why Sanders won't stay down, his following continues to grow as both primary contenders, billionaire Donald Trump and former First Lady and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton continue to try to dismiss is presence and power, to much avail.

Has The World Gone 'Marvel Comics' Crazy?

Posted by GregB on June 26, 2016 at 9:20 PM

For over 70 years, Marvel Comics in one incarnation or another, has presented a variety of over-the-top villains and superheroes as well as stories that has now leaped to global domination of the box office. With battles of magnitude where the world's future is in the balance, it's not too far fetched to see how the news of the day mirrors these movies and more.

Marvel Comics is the home of such superheroes as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers, Spider-Man, and more. The most popular of American comic book companies and now a monster of a juggernaut in the motion picture industry, toy market and web based entertainment, it got its start just prior to WWII, Marvel ushered in a series of sci-fi based heroes whose villains were like something from the primordial subconscious of mankind.

Corpocracy vs Trump'ism

Posted by Roy Ellis on June 25, 2016 at 4:36 PM

Politics has taken an interesting turn over the last six months and all for the better, IMO. We've seen Trump pretty much go it alone in standing up to Corpocracy (Reganites and company and Clinton's and company). And, now we've seen the Brit's stand up to Corpocracy in that part of the UK. Other EU countries are making waves as well.

The Brexit Effect

Posted by GregB on June 24, 2016 at 4:30 PM

Now that Great Britain has voted to leave the European Union, markets and world power have just gone chaotic.

Officials from around the world are reeling at the vote and there's no telling how the commodities markets will react. Turmoil erupted almost immediately but only time will tell the true Brexit Effect.

Mudslinging To The Max!

Posted by GregB on June 22, 2016 at 7:10 PM

Now that the numbers point to both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton having gained their respective political party's nominations for President of the United States, the mudslinging has begun and in all the previous campaigns since elections were first held.

In recent memory there hasn't been a vitriolic candidate for the Oval Office like that of Donald Trump. He speaks his mind, no matter how offensive and idiotic he sounds. He's using the ploy of basically mirroring what millions of Americans want to say but are too afraid to. This has caused great ire among the Republican hierarchy and they're abandoning him like rats leaving a sinking ship. Trump doesn't care because he still has the numbers and momentum to give Hillary Clinton a good run for her money and possibly beat her in a landslide. This is due in great part to Clinton's ties with Wall Street and the Democratic hierarchy that's no better than their counterparts in the Republican hierarchy. People now see Clinton as old skool politics that won't get anything done that doesn't benefit big business first.

Orlando: Obama Has It Backwards

Posted by AllardK on June 14, 2016 at 8:43 PM

Sorry Jesse Byrnes. Obama arguing his version of semantics like a grouchy linguistics professor trying to browbeat an audience is not "scathing". Scathing is the anger at the terrorist attack in Orlando. Islamic terrorism are words that convey the very real war that America and much of the community of Western nations find themselves engaged in with radical terrorist jihadist islamists. Whether they have the clarity and the conviction to both realize it and state it. Or not.

It Ain't Over Until The Fat Lady Says It's Over

Last week was the long awaited California Democratic vote. Both sides of the top contenders, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders felt they would take the state by a good margin. What finally turned out was that Clinton's preliminary vote theoretically gives her the Democratic nomination for president.. On the other hand, debate is still raging regarding votes that were classed as 'provisional' by mostly independents who changed to Democrat in order to vote for Sanders.

Bernie Has to Do a Little Dance

Posted by AllardK on June 8, 2016 at 6:38 PM

A delicate minuet? The WaPo has declared that a subtle dance to bring together Sanders' supporters and co-opt them into Hillary's identity-politics machine has begun. Harry Reid - a very delicate dancer himself especially at home doing his workout routine - is leaning, delicately, on Sanders of course.

On Tuesday, June 7, 2015 the biggest most populous state in the union will hold its democratic primary and the balance of the presidency itself is on the table. Which of course will have people all next week asking the question: "Who won the Democratic California Primary, 2016?"..

Who Was Obama Talking to in Colorado?

Posted by AllardK on June 3, 2016 at 2:53 PM

And as Hillary went "nuclear" on Trump as the headline in Politico gleefully proclaimed, Obama gravely warned America not to become isolationist. The BC tag team has finally swaggered into the ring and are flexing their lathered-up rhetoric before El Donaldo has even paraded down the aisle and stepped up onto the canvas.

We're weeks away from the conventions, Sanders is convincing a few superdelegates to come into his corner, California hasn't even voted yet, and La Great Lucha Libre is already ringing the bells.

Hillary Just Can't Shake Those Emails

Posted by GregB on June 2, 2016 at 7:26 PM

The three big issues that have dogged Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, her husband Bill, Benghazi, email server, just won't seem to go away no matter how hard the media and her team try. Once more the controversy regarding her emails has arisen and this time it's a harder hit.

Obama Does Vietnam

Posted by GregB on May 30, 2016 at 8:24 AM

President Obama visited Vietnam this month and of course his journey brought both praise and condemnation. It's been a 'damned if you do, damned if you don't' situation and only time will tell if any good comes from it.

What Couric and Soechtig Didn't Want You to See

Posted by AllardK on May 28, 2016 at 6:22 PM

It's all narrative, right? It's all a construction, according to the progressive view. The news, our views of right and wrong, gender, and as well, a documentary dealing with gun ownership. So there's absolutely no need for Katie Couric, literally the narrator, and Stephanie Soechtig, the director (maybe she should be called the site manager), to apologize for a brazen manipulation of an interview they did with the Virginia Citizens Defense League. Especially the question on background checks for gun owners.

How Long Before President Trump Gets Impeached?

Posted by GregB on May 27, 2016 at 6:09 PM

Should Donald Trump become the next President of the United States, people are asking how long will it be before his big mouth and outrageous personality will get him impeached.

Trump is going to have to pick a running mate. Possibly one of the hardliners in the GOP in order to satisfy that party that is afraid of him. It might be present Speaker of the House Paul Ryan or some other hardline Republican. That would only turn things into another nightmare because Trump is just advertising that he won't make a full term as President.
