The 24/7 Sneeze Factor

  by Walter Brasch Hillary Clinton is recovering from a mild case of pneumonia. However, shortly after she collapsed at Ground Zero while part of the 15th annual memorial of 9/11, her campaign staff said she was just exhausted and suffered heat exhaustion. It took a couple of days for her to reveal the extent of her medical issue. Donald Trump, who had many times this past year questioned Clinton’s health and suggested she should leave politics, now tweeted he was hoping his Democratic opponent would have a quick recovery. However, the Renegade Republicans, fueled by scandal-makers of the conservative media, think Clinton is a piñata, and are hitting her hard—she has Parkinson’s disease; she suffered from a concussion; the … Continue reading

The Fix Is In


in the horrifically evolving combination of an incompetent and unprofessional press and an increasingly imperious candidate class, the old “people’s right to know” is summarily tossed on the trash heap and access is granted only for the most self-serving of means. Donald Trump has yet to answer a single substantive question about his candidacy Continue reading

How To Mainstream Conspiracy Theories 101

The Psy-Ops serpents of the GOP have, once again, placed a completely bogus story smack into the middle of mainstream reporting, and all it took was the merest scintilla of the slightest whiff of a “medical crisis” for these mindless, ravening and rabid hyenas to form into a pack and go charging straight up BS Mountain. Continue reading

occam's razor HW

But that’s falling into the trap. We could just as easily end up with the flypaper of “Clinton is up in Texas!” which comes from another, equally reputable poll. And it’s been brought up a smidge. The fall campaign now kicks off in earnest, without the slightest indication that it is going to be anything other than an ugly feces-flinging extravaganza in the Grand tradition of the Oil Party.

Race Issues Dominate White House Race

  by Walter Brasch (part 1 of 2)   Donald Trump, who is commanding all of 1 percent of Black voters, according to an impartial Quinnipiac poll, says he could get as much as 95 percent of the Black vote in a second term. In June 2011, he had said, “I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks.” It’s nothing less than political hyperbole in a campaign for a first term, and meant to get a few thousand more votes in key states. However, Trump’s past actions don’t mitigate whatever future plans he has. In 1973, the Department of Justice sued Trump Management for civil rights violations for refusing to rent apartments to Blacks and Latinos who wished to … Continue reading

Taking the Wind out of Trump’s Energy Policy

  by Walter Brasch   Black letters against a yellow background. Black letters against white. White letters against black. On yard signs. On T-shirts. On baseball caps. All with the same message: “Trump Digs Coal.” Donald Trump says there are “ridiculous regulations [on coal] that put you out of business and make it impossible to compete.” He says if he is president, he would reduce those regulations. Those regulations that Trump doesn’t like are enforced by the Environmental Protection Agency to protect miners and the public. In speech after speech in the coal-producing states, he has said, “We’re going to get those miners back to work . . .  the miners of West Virginia and Pennsylvania . . .  [In] … Continue reading
