In the last days of campaigning, Republicans are narrowing their election focus to the so-called independent voter and conservative Democrats. Pennsylvania GOP Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz told his supporters their job is to talk to independent and conservative Democrat(sic) friends. They are to emphasize only three issues, economy, crime,...

For over a year, teachers and school boards have fought the myth of Critical Race Theory (CRT) being a bludgeon to batter white kids’ delicate psyche(s).

Democrats have an opportunity to simplify the treacherous and near treasonous behavior of Donald Trump. Plain talk is required. I attended a neighborhood improvement meeting, and the local councilman started his address by saying he was there as the “validation marketer.” After a few quizzical looks, he finally said, ‘I...

We haven’t yet reached that point where the losses to the Russians are sustainable. Replacements may be on their way to the front.

Right-wing provocateur and author Ann Coulter, in 2017, told the world, “In 20 years, Russia will be the only country that is recognizably European.” Coulter was not trying to be vague or cute; she pointedly said that white culture, however you define it, is worth accepting authoritarianism, murder, and fascism,...

An “operative lull” seems now ready to end. Bombardment resumes and the messaging about “foreign fighters” increases with the slowing of the Russian advance to take major cities. Smaller cities that have been captured are being repressed by Russians and some proxies with brutal efficiency. The war continues to be...

Three members of the Congressional Putin Caucus (fka the GOP) have somehow seen fit to vote against a resolution supporting Ukraine in the wake of Russia’s elective war of aggression.

States’ rights, America first, Make America Great Again, and Freedom.

It depresses me to acknowledge this, but the Republicans’ commitment to blatant and serial lying, and Orwellian “make believe” governing, pose a real threat by overwhelming the public debate and individual’s efforts to stay grounded.  While a bit well-worn (and of uncertain provenance), this quote is fundamentally true: “A lie can travel halfway around...
