The United States Oligarchy

United States Oligarchy

Sharon Kyle: The bottom line is that the American people don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of having their interests represented when their interests collide with big business or a small cadre of elites.

Obama’s Sin, Clinton’s Choice

Madame President Hillary Clinton

Brent Budowsky: The tide today is enlightened populism. If Clinton makes the hard choice to seize this tide, the fortune could be a lasting political realignment and the first great Madame President to lift the nation and light the world.

Time for a Disruptive Marianne Williamson in Congress

Marianne Williamson Running for 33 CD

Dick Price: A lifelong Democrat, Williamson is running as an independent, underscoring her status as a fresh and disruptive force, while leveraging her fame as a best-selling author and lecturer, with a large following among people who aren’t typically drawn to politics.

Could Hillary Win 45 States?

Could Hillary Win

Brent Budowsky: The GOP addresses its partisan and extreme right-wing base with a venom toward others that mocks the legacies of Abe Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. Clinton addresses the nation as a whole in tones reminiscent of Pope Francis.

Brent Budowsky: One moment Paul says he might support a military attack against Iran. Then he implies he might accept a nuclear-armed Iran and follow a policy of containment. Then he says he won’t tell us what policy he prefers, comparing himself to Ronald Reagan.

Mitch’s Tough Out

grimes-rifle-600

Berry Craig: The other day, Grimes swatted another one into the cheap seats after McConnell got the expected NRA endorsement. She promptly tweeted a renewal of her months-old challenge to the senate minority leader to meet her on a gun range.
