Trump’s pitch to blacks is deluded 0

  Forsake a party that has welcomed us, given us voice and advanced our interests? For him? Dream on.  “Look at how much African-American communities have suffered under Democratic control. To those I say the following: what do you have to lose by trying something new like Trump?”— Donald Trump in Dimondale, Mich. Population 92.7% white, 0.7% African American as of […]

Melania admires Michelle? What Donald should learn from that 0

In taking responsibility for lifting much of two paragraphs from a speech by Michelle Obama, Trump campaign staff writer Meredith McIver did more than uncover her own part in the drama surrounding Melania Trump’s convention speech. She also inadvertently highlighted the unfair and frankly hateful way Donald Trump has treated the Obamas. It seems that […]

Hold on to Hope 0

My heart is full as I continue to grieve for Seth Rich, shot by an unknown assailant as he walked to his Washington, D.C., home in the early morning on the Lord’s Day. Seth was my colleague at the Democratic National Committee. He worked on one of democracy’s highest callings, registering citizens to vote and […]

Clinton Passes the Test 0

Hillary Clinton’s “damn emails” are a self-inflicted wound in a political cycle full of gotcha and you’re fired. And worse, for the fraying patience of the public, the injury is one her Republican opponents are blithe to spin and churn into a political fatality. I’m no spring chicken, nor a community elder.  I do have […]

Summoning Your Courage 0

We live in exciting—and dangerous—times. Within a week we saw a Trump-supported Brexit, a virtual act of political terrorism, where Britain recklessly voted to leave the European Market.  The United Kingdom plunged in the stock market, losing million in one day. The world market lost three trillion dollars in two days.  Millions of Americans lost […]

It’s Always Right To Do Right 0

Rep. John Lewis was 20 when he took his first stand.  On a May Tuesday, 1960, Lewis walked into a Woolworths and sat down at a lunch counter for whites only.  Police arrested him.  Lewis served jail time for attempting to order lunch.   A year to the day, Lewis took his second stand. This […]

Trump’s Smoke Screens 0

Donald Trump knows how to stir things up—mostly by churning embers until they produce a giant smoke screen.  I’ve noticed (as you have, likely) that when Trump gets into trouble, he lashes back with a series of accusations that obscure the activity that got him there.   Trump enveloped fraud charges by Trump University students […]

Smearing, Assailing and Denigrating His Way to the Nomination 0

Like most Americans watching the endless reality TV Presidential campaign of Donald Trump, I’ve discovered the secret to Donald Trump’s success on the campaign stump.  It has nothing to do at all with sterling qualifications, superior grasp of national security issues, or stunning displays of logic.  If he has those things, he’s chosen not to […]

Wiping Out America’s Morals 0

Donald Trump is on his way to being an authority figure.  Some feel he’s already there.  If (when) nominated, he will have the mantle of authority that comes from being the standard bearer of one of America’s two major political parties.   Ironically, Trump will have captured the Republican nomination by winning only twelve million […]

The Last Ballot, or the last Vote?” 0

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is defiant.  Although the Kentucky Democratic primary results were being counted, Sanders wasn’t there. He was in Carson, California addressing a huge rally.  “Let me be as clear as I can be…We are in ’til the last ballot is cast,” he said, getting a thunderous roar in return.   There was […]
