ERASING PEOPLE OF COLOR IS THE CORPORATE MEDIA’S SPECIALTY…

You wouldn’t know it from watching CNN, but Bernie Sanders’ highest approval rating has consistently come from African-Americans. Coming in at a close second are Hispanics, followed by Asian-Americans. (Review the data, if you dare.) 73% of African-Americans have a … Continue reading

CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY MONTH (with a historical corrective, hoping that African-Americans will finally be allowed to speak for themselves… particularly in the voting booth)

Here we go again, with the white-male dominated corporate media telling African-Americans who their favorite politician is: Wall Street favorite and “New Jim Crow” prosecutor, Kamala Harris. In 2016, the MSM had a similar narrative to peddle, ignoring considerable evidence … Continue reading

“Batman: Arkham Jihad”

I’ve been enjoying revisiting my original “Batman” story from 2004, rereading my old dialogue, reworking old scenes, adding new touches. Here’s a taste: BATMAN:  Arkham Jihad CONCEPT:  “Arkham Jihad” was born of two emotions, Love and Disappointment: Love, for the … Continue reading

NO FRIEND TO THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY… BUT CHUMMY WITH WALL STREET!

Kamala Harris is “tough on crime” when supporting the New Jim Crow, prison labor, police/prosecutorial misconduct, the War on Drugs, and the death penalty. And she’s an innovator, when it comes to jailing parents of truant children, disproportionately poor POC. … Continue reading

My strategy for defeating DJT is about putting pressure on the Democratic Party to shift to the left and offer policies demanded by considerable majorities of Americans — POPULISM (minus the racist demagoguery of Trump and the GOP): Medicare-for-All, a … Continue reading

Planned Parenthood vs. the Far-right…

Who remembers the reprehensible “selling baby parts” smear by the sham group, The Center for Medical Progress? It was obviously hacked up (dishonestly edited) video intended to make Planned Parenthood look like monsters. And the group presenting the video, the … Continue reading

MY DREAM TICKET COULD COME TRUE: GABBARD/SANDERS 2020 (or, more realistically, SANDERS/GABBARD 2020 — either way, I’m stoked)!

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, one of the only DC politicians left who opposes war and fights political corruption, just made a public statement that she is beginning to explore a run for president. Hooray! That’s about the best news I’ve heard … Continue reading

Is there a stronger candidate than Chris Hedges for the most astute American political analyst working today?

In his latest writing about the brewing 2020 election circus, Pulitzer-winning journalist, lecturer, teacher, and author Chris Hedges continues to demonstrate the remarkable political acumen we’ve come to expect from him: “The corporate media ignores issues and policies, since there … Continue reading

Yes, metaphorically speaking, Donald Trump is a Nazi…

I have lost track of how many zillion times I’ve encountered this metaphor since Trump blundered into the world of U.S. politics (with the assistance of the 2016 Clinton campaign and the Bernie-disappearing media it controlled). And although I think … Continue reading

SOME PRAISEWORTHY WORDS (a semi-respectable op-ed) FROM A NONETHELESS SLIPPERY POLITICIAN: RO KHANNA CRITICIZES THE NEOCON AGENDA WHILE VOICING HIS SUPPORT FOR ITS CONTINUATION.

It’s rare that Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) impresses me favorably, but I’m grateful (overall) for his recently published op-ed. With regard to several points he makes, I couldn’t agree more. For instance: “President Trump is receiving an onslaught of criticism … Continue reading
