Digital Campaigning and the Rise of Populism in the 2016 Primary

candidate

Populism is amongst the most significant factors of the 2016 election cycle. Even Carly Fiorina credited competitor Donald Trump’s frontrunner status to his vehement anti-establishment rhetoric. Office seekers tout their populist credential; pundits often weigh the credentials of a candidate against it. But what does “populism” really mean, and how is it being utilized in voter outreach? The simple answer ...

Colorado’s Governor Hickenlooper Dislikes Profit-Making Companies

Eagle- America Deserves Better

Following the recent EPA-caused orange waste spill near Durango, Colorado, the governor of the state was trying to excuse the EPA of any culpability for the spill by saying ”..they aren’t trying to make a profit..” and then stopped his leftist remarks before he got into trouble. Companies making profits are on the hit list of all liberal/Democrat/progressives and it’s ...

Government Is Nearly Always The Problem

obama-speech-e1342050505906

When considering where to place the blame for an impoverished society one should recall the classic examples of East and West Germany and North and South Korea.  In both instances the free, capitalist side was prosperous and the government-controlled, enslaved side lived terrible, frightened, hungry and cold existences.  In each example both sides of the national boundries were populated by ...

The Problem with Democracy; America Can Vote Itself to Death

We are voting ourselves to death. The Democrats and too many complaisant Republicans are taking advantage of their “useful idiot” constituencies to enact policies that will destroy our way of life. That is the problem with Democracy. It has been pointed out that, “Democracy is like two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner.” That pretty much sums ...

GOP Candidates Who I Don’t Think Will Make It

I am sure everyone has watched the GOP debates, we all have our own opinions on how they all did. Some stood out, others did not, and others should never have gotten in the race in the first place. I have a list of people who I think should bow out and let the cream rise to the top. I ...

Trump-ettes, You Can’t Have It Both Ways

Donald Trump

A funny thing happened on the way to the “Forum,” the “guy who doesn’t back down,” the “fighter,” got his nose bloodied and his sycophants didn’t care for it one bit. If that sounds harsh, then let me borrow from the “fighter’s” own words. I don’t have time for political correctness. I also don’t have time for so-called Republicans and ...

Republicans Hump The Stump To Dump Trump

Trump struggles with unfavorable numbers

While being at the same time both the bad boy and the presumed savior for our nation’s future constitutional existence, Donald Trump has been a fascinating combination of attraction and rejection for America, and his ascendance to the leader of the pack of Republican candidates for president has been truly astounding. The establishment Republicans are tying themselves in knots to ...

Meet Mom & Dad the Libido Extinguishers

Dad asks, "Who's your new friend, Sonny?"

Displaying that tone of pretentious concern that its made famous, the New York Times writes that as of 2014 the US birthrate has declined for the sixth consecutive year. One would think the Times, of all papers, would be overjoyed by this development since the decline means a reduction in number of little carbon producers in the future. Although it’s ...

The Legacy of Legacy-Oriented Bureaucrats

Credit: cliff1066™ (CC)

Modern American political statesmen, much like their positional forebears- those decadent and oft inept kings of old- appear increasingly concerned with legacy. Hoary kings had to ceaselessly fight squabbling barons and civil unrest from the rabble they exploited. President Obama and John Kerry have to contend with a Senate that dares question their rightness and an American public, uneducated and ...

You’re Probably A Liberal/Democrat/Progressive If…

malignant-narcissism-narcissist-obama

You think Hillary is capable of telling the truth. You think immigration problems were greater before Obama disregarded the law and illegally opened our borders. You think Obama’s unelected and unconfirmed-by-Congress hidden cabinet, is good for America and represents transparency in government. You think that the immigration system is “broken”, and not that immigration laws are not being enforced. You ...

Why political endorsements should be obsolete

Already, as in every election cycle, heavyweight politicians and insipid celebrities are drawn, like moths to a flame, to campaign trail and commercial appearances for endorsement spots. This culture, which promotes the puerility of groupthink, and depresses the meritocracy that should underlie popular elections, is one of soft despotism. It holds colloquy- the battlefield of ideas at the heart of ...

I Had Enough Of This Anti-Discrimination Crap

You can call me a racist, a bigot, or anything else you can think of, but when I go into a Chinese restaurant I want to see Chinese people working there. I don’t want to see black people working there or Italian people working there or Mexican people working there, I want Chinese people working there, it makes the atmosphere ...

A Stupid President Is Preferable To An Evil President, And Here Comes Biden

Il Duce Obama

Author Edward Banfield once wrote that criminals are people who can’t foresee the logical results of their bad actions.  They are unable to predict that prison will result from their acts of stealing or killing.  They are doomed to keep making mistakes that hurt people and will keep paying the price for their actions.  Likewise, liberals/Democrats/progressives can’t foresee the bad ...
