Donald Trump’s 70-minute acceptance speech at the close of the Republican National […]

Postal Service slowdown is a voter suppression effort by Trump and Republicans 0

It appears from his recent actions that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is dead set on preventing our votes from being counted. Appointed in June by President Trump, DeJoy has provided yet another platform for the president to win in November at any and all costs.

Biden would benefit by picking a Black woman for VP — and so would America. 0

Donna Brazile: Pass the Voting Rights Act and rename the Pettus Bridge to honor John Lewis 0

In Washington, there are two sentences that are said as if they were one sentence, said in one breath: “So and so died? Who’s replacing him?” No one will ask that about Rep. John Lewis of Georgia. He is irreplaceable. I first met John Lewis when I was only 23 years old and serving as […]

Trump spews anger, hatred and false claims to divide Americans when he should be uniting us. 0

There were moments in President Trump’s Fourth of July speech that were eloquent, expressing patriotic sentiments that that could have been uttered by any previous president. But sadly, the speech also contained some of the harshest and most divisive partisan rhetoric delivered by any president in American history.
