DNC Email Scandal: Let the Punishment Fit the Crime

Considering the injustice done to Bernie Sanders and his supporters by the DNC, it is not sufficient for Wasserman Schultz to resign. Everyone knows she was working for Hillary Clinton. And if Clinton replaces her with Castro we’ll have exactly the same problem and Clinton won’t have given up anything. And in my opinion it…

Bernie Sanders and Jonah

I realize now the false claim that Senator Sanders is an atheist has contributed to a major blind spot regarding the meaning of his campaign—at least for me. In fact, it could be argued that the Sanders campaign has been making a religious statement about the nature of our times—a statement that has not been…

Bernie’s Supporters Could Throw Everything Away

The YouTubers are still plying their trade, dwelling on sob-stories, ominous polls, and adding to the general rudeness and confusion any way they can.

Knowing the background, you could interpret Comey’s press conference several ways, most of them having to do with bowing to the demands of his superiors….

Did James Comey Put the Election Back on Track?

The FBI Assassinates Justice

The director of the FBI, ole what’s-his-name, recommended no charges for Hillary Clinton. I wonder if his behind is still sore from the reaming the Clintons gave it. Of course there’s always the possibility that after he heals up he’ll decide he liked it, and as luck would have it he’ll know where to go…
