Pool the Popularity

I listened to yesterday's Thom Hartman radio show in which there was voiced great fear and concern about Donald Trump winning the presidential election. The concern is legitimate in that the Trump campaign is well organized and well tuned. In the republican primaries on Tuesday April 26, 2016, Trump had an incredible landslide victory. He won every single delegate available and all but a few by double digit margins.

Bill Clinton "The First Black President" and Kentucky Fried Chicken

No sooner than I get over my days long bout with nausea, due to Hillary Clinton’s revelation that she “carries hot sauce in her bag”, here comes Bill Clinton with the proverbial “icing on the cake”. Clinton made the revelation subsequent to a visit to a predominately Black area of Los Angeles while on a radio talk show that caters to a mainly Black audience.

It's ok to dream, or every nightmare has a silver lining

Here’s an interesting thought, that I just had while riding in the car to the DMV office in Ellsworth, Wisconsin yesterday afternoon.

Suppose this. Trump picks Kasich as VP. Kasich, for unknown reasons agrees. Trump wins the race on the backs of Ohio and Florida. The republicans lose the Senate, and lose ground in the House.

No Occasion to Gloat, I'll Just Chortle: Hail To The Chief, President Trump

Almost a year ago, I predicted Donald Trump would quite possibly be the next U.S. President; and I was duly chastised and excoriated for saying so (by Thom and many readers, though Thom, as usual, was gentle). I took my lumps, like a big fella. Three months ago (February 1, 2016), I doubled down on my analysis and posted the following op-ed.


'Sworn statements from Virginia Roberts — the woman who claims she was a teen sex slave forced to have sex with Prince Andrew — also includes the allegation that 'she saw the former president (Clinton) on Epstein’s 'orgy island.'


The Hartmann Report asks the question, 'is war with Russia possible? '

US led NATO continues to increase its land, sea, and air military build-up on or near Russia’s borders, tightening the noose.

Russia is the main stumbling block to wests domination of the world and there are people in high places looking for ways to destroy Russia. Russia is the biggest hinderance of the endless war neo con plans for world domination, which is why the removal of Putin and replacing him with a western puppet is the neo cons overriding objective.

Ted Cruz. Crazy like a fox.

Here's a topic I'd love to hear Thom explore. I originally asked this on Google Plus but I'd love some feedback from the community as to whether I might be on to something here. Question: Why did Ted Cruz pick Fiorina just days before dropping out?

Larry "My Nigga" Wilmore Admits To "Losing The Room"

Well, looks like "My Nigga" has begun to realize how disgusting, and damaging, his conduct at the recent White House Correspondents Dinner was. When asked, at the conclusion of a recent interview if he thought he would ever attend another WHCD, or "Nerd Prom", My Nigga responded: " I don't think you get invited to something like this (again) after what I did".

He didn't "lose the room", he lost his godamned mind.


Congress members should have to respond anyone! Even if they aren't in their state constituency

I recently contacted Feinsteins office on an issue and several days later Sherrod Browns office. Both would not respond to my questions.

They are Federal officials and should have to answer to any citizen as they are making decisions on the behalf of all Americans. So why don't they have to respond outside of their state constituency?

Attention: Thom Hartmann, Bernie Sanders and America:

Do Commentators, Analyst, Pro-Politician, and Elites Understand this Election?

Probably not and here’s why.

Politics is a strange process, largely requiring politicians to “craft” responses and positions that cause voters to select from an platform of broad general issues. The issues and solutions are couched in terms and explained out of the back drop of the legislative process; a rarified arena of lawyers, a few doctors, or business people angered by some event.

But what’s wrong with this summary of the political process? Its 100% bullshit.

OBAMA disappointment and SHAME

Obama's Presidency was supposed to be the Presidency of the sane .

What a sad tragedy the Obama presidency has turned out to be, from hiring old Reagan/Bush neocons to populate his office, to his first term inner circle being dominated by the thug Rahm Emanuel, his father a know Jewish terrorist.

Time to get real.

Over the last few months it has amazed me at the naivety of the Democratic and Republican pundits. It appears that many of them have their finger in their ears in an effort ignore their listeners and callers. All but a very few have predicted with 100% inaccuracy the outcome on the Republican side, while on the Democratic side they are trying with all hope to sway voters by walking the fine line by hiding the stark differences among those who are still in the Democratic race. Disgusting!

Did the Fossil Fuel Industry Bring Us to the Point of No Return?

As runaway climate change continues to wreak havoc on the planet, it’s getting harder and harder to disagree with the idea that we’re in the middle of a potentially massive extinction event. It’s also getting harder and harder to ignore the potentially criminal liability of at least some fossil fuel companies for causing this mess.
