Many of you saw your long-term wishes granted: the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in London. Payback for Assange’s 2016 slow-motion DNC and Hillary hit, some of you will say. (Oh, and read this, and this. I can’t blame you for the vitriol, sort of. Most accounts describe Assange as unlikable — the kind […]

Before I dig into the latest indictments Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has filed against a dozen Russian military officers for hacking into then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails, I’ll attach my typical caveats whenever writing about The Resistance versus President Donald Trump: I don’t believe Trump has the intellectual curiosity nor emotional stability to serve as President […]

After looking at journalists pound the tweet button for more than a week as if it were a defibrillator — and perhaps it was — in mortal defense of the Democratic National Committee against disgraced ex-interim Chair Donna Brazile’s allegations of primary elections-rigging, I think it’s time for me to share some thoughts about simple […]

Quote and video are below. Number one, we’ve been tricked into fighting among ourselves over the wrong […]

Hillary Clinton blaming the calendar for why she’s not your President today elucidates my earlier points about the Democratic Party running from salvation — as if they’ve discovered a shortcut to redemption. The calendar fails to adequately explain one of several reasons why traditionally-Democratic voters either switched parties or stayed home last November: the economic […]

Some of you ⸺ well, fewer of you, assuming the latest polling news is accurate ⸺ will groan as I resurface an earlier point I made about how redemption shall remain a fleeting fantasy for the Democratic National Committee until they first pursue salvation. While the DNC has spent much of its post-November implosion state spitting “Agent […]

In a related but trending story that dovetails to my insistence that the Democratic Party seeks redemption without salvation, disgraced former CNN analyst and DNC interim head Donna Brazile admits to leaking primary debate questions to partner-in-shadiness Hillary Clinton and calls the act “a mistake I will forever regret.” (Laughing) But not so fast, Madame Brazile. She must’ve […]

The latest news about the Clinton Global Initiative formally filing its intent with New York State to shut down and lay-off 22 employees reminds me of what I said in my last piece — the Party of No Guts will have to exorcise the demons of its past to regain relevance among voters. CGI would have a problem staying […]

The US Office of National Intelligence ’s report of Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections [pdf] published three sentences that will serve as this week’s Sunday Smack.
