Here’s a statistic from last week’s Quinnipiac poll (pdf here) about President Donald Trump’s mental stability that didn’t make the mainstream media landing pages: 70 percent of surveyed African American voters have a favorable opinion of 2016 presidential candidate and current U.S. Senator, Bernie Sanders. The poll also showed a flash hypothetical read for 2020: […]Read More Trump’s mental state, Bernie Sanders and the souls of Black folks
I’ve decided to riff on Time Magazine and name my own Person of the Year, plus four entries for the short list. Needless to say that my take will differ a bit. 1. Vladimir Putin The Russia President changed the decades-long Neoliberal regime change machine in addition to changing the West’s entire narrative. Do a word cloud […]Read More mentalunrest’s 2016 Person of the Year
Wikileaks’ Friday dump of nearly 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails — courtesy of non-Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0 — shows more than a shamelessly corrupt political organization who erected an unscalable partition to block Bernie Sanders’ nomination bid in favor of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The leak also shows how the DNC controls media content in a blatant lack of […]Read More WIKILEAKS SHOWS HOW DNC ISN’T ONE BIT DEMOCRATIC
As the presidential candidate who’s “willing to debate anytime and anywhere,” and is willing to speak with any investigator about her private email troubles, Hillary Clinton seems to be saying “No” a lot lately. Saying “No” to a Party of No Guts primary debate with opponent Bernie Sanders in California makes sense on the surface […]Read More CLINTON’S AMAZING WEEK OF ‘NO’
A fetor of anti-Bernie Sanders media bias surrounds this headline of yesterday’s Guam and Washington caucus results: “SANDERS NETS 31 DELEGATES IN WASHINGTON, BUT LOSES IN GUAM“ (Laughing) The creator of that headline isn’t counting on you to give any thought to it. But I suppose that’s a reason for why my blog exists … […]Read More MEDIA PLAYS DOWN ANOTHER BERNIE SANDERS WIN
A torn backside for the rest of America to see is the risk Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton takes when she constantly fence-hops to give the appearance of being a populist to primary voters while also acting as a member of the Oligarchs Booster Club. She also makes her opponent Bernie Sanders look like a […]Read More PANAMA PAPERS AND HILLARY CLINTON’S SLOW BURN
This week’s Sunday Smack explores presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s victory over Bernie Sanders in the South Carolina Democratic primary yesterday, but will focus on the enablers to that win: the Black vote. Exit polls say that African descendants, who represented more than 60% of all South Carolina Democratic primary voters, not only exceeded the 55% […]Read More SUNDAY SMACK: WHY DID CLINTON WIN SOUTH CAROLINA’S BLACK VOTE?
This week’s Sunday Smack explores the prospects for internecine warfare this year between America’s two major political parties. As Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump — to the “supposed” chagrin of so-called establishment party leaders — wins the South Carolina Presidential primary, some party insders make mention of a brokered convention which could block Trump’s nomination. […]Read More SUNDAY SMACK: PARTY CIVIL WAR?
Last night’s Presidential primary debate to help determine who will represent the Party of No Guts this November was packaged less like a debate and more like a survey of how yet another oddly-scheduled event will compete with Americans’ other pressing downtime priorities like enjoying the MLK holiday weekend or watching the Critics’ Choice Awards.
