There has always been a truth to the idiom 'where there is smoke there is fire' and Donald Trump's statements and actions seem to be fanning a huge blaze. His entire campaign, as evidenced by the Republican convention, is geared to incite the worst in the American people and to scare them into voting for him.
The Republican candidate for the presidency has recommended torturing terrorist suspects. While former Vice President Dick Cheney was known to advocat...
As long as the Iraqi Sunnis do not know what the future has in store for them, they have no reason to put their lives on the line to fight against ISIS and make all the sacrifices only to benefit the Shiite government in Baghdad, which they reject and despise even more so than ISIS.
The Islamic State, both when it was operating solely in Iraq and now in both Iraq and Syria, killed priests and bishops with wanton gusto.
Comer's statements imply that the DNC could neither guarantee any specific position nor ensure that a person suggested would receive an appointment at all from the Obama administration.
Instead of preying on the fear of the nation, Obama focused her speech around two people. No, not Clinton and Trump, but Sasha and Malia Obama.

If you fail to show up for Hillary in November, and Trump wins, then your revolution will prove to be nothing more than a faddish exercise in futility by privileged white millennials who shamefully cut off their noses to spite their faces, while destroying everything that Sanders worked to achieve for you.

But maybe that puts me in a unique position to contribute some thoughts about why I'm voting for Clinton/Kaine.
Like the eye of the storm, she brought peace to a crowd divided. Her speech, elegant but sharp, channeled her hope for the Clinton presidency to the tune of "I believe the children are the future."
Day One of the Democratic National Convention is now over, and tonight seemed designed to allow Bernie Sanders supporters to vent their frustrations, given the lineup of speakers.
For my money, Breaking Bad is the greatest TV show of all time. The acting, writing, cinematography, music, and message of the show are simply astonis...
Now that the "Conveneracy of Donces" is over, I am officially in full recovery mode from the four-day psychotic break that I've had to endure. It's all Good Night Moon now.
