Donald Trump scorecard: He gets it right on Cuba.

…when he tweeted: If Cuba is unwilling to make a better deal for the Cuban people, the Cuban/American people and the U.S. as a whole, I will terminate deal. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 28, 2016 What did the Cuban ruling elite  get out of the deal? Money. Jobs. Recognition. What did America get out of... Read more »

Why is this not being called a "hate crime?"

A white guy gets beaten by black men. Imagine if this had happened in Mount Greenwood, and it was one black guy who was beaten by a mob of white guys it would be proof of white racism. Although the victim says he wasn’t beaten because he voted for trump (the assailants could not have... Read more »

No "safe spaces" for Trump supporters on campus or elsewhere

For those of you who missed the craziness of the 1960s, come with me as we virtually travel back in time by viewing the nastiness, foul-mouthed and sometimes violent proclivities of the mobs. But these are not the ’60s; today these are Hillary Clinton’s supporters and Trump haters who do not believe that anyone who disagrees... Read more »

Chicago aldermen shed light on Bill and Hillary Clinton's sense of entitlement

Sometimes it’s hard to believe that Bill and Hillary Clinton could be as corrupt as their critics say. How can anyone believe that their “public service” could entitlement for such a startling flow of personal enrichment? Could they really be leveraging their positions of pubic trust to reap hundreds of millions–yes, hundreds of millions–of dollars... Read more »

This is not about the Chicago Cubs or the presidential election

Like the Seinfeld show, this post is about nothing. It’s just a break for you from the throbbing, never-ending coverage of the Chicago Cubs World Series championship and the most abysmal ever presidential election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. You may remain on this page for as long as you want. Read why Americans need to learn... Read more »

Nobody loves a conspiracy more than Hillary Clinton

Well maybe not, but she does love a conspiracy. A fact conveniently bypassed by Richard C. Longworth in his Chicago Tribune op-ed, “Nobody loves a conspiracy more than Donald Trump.” No argument from here that Donald Trump, a sociopath, sees a stiletto-armed bogeyman behind every curtain, waiting to rob him of his supposedly rightful claim on the presidency....

It's Trump's right not to accept a Hillary Clinton election victory

UPDATE: Trump said he would accept “a clear election result” but was reserving his right to “contest or file a legal challenge” if he loses.  Donald Trump’s refusal in the Oct. 19 debate to commit to “accepting” the outcome if Hillary Clinton is elected president has all kinds of critics speeding off the rails. “It’s horrifying,” Clinton...

Checking Obama's or any other candidate's presidential qualifications is not racist

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen...

The GOP's last presidential hope: Trump resigns, Pence replaces him on ticket

UPDATES: Trump says he’ll never abandon his quest for the presidency. GOP leadership jumping ship. Of the two presidential major party presidential candidates–Republican Donald Trump or Democrat Hillary Clinton–who has the least chance of winning, I’d guess (wildly and don’t hold me to it) that Trump will be retiring after the election to his old...

Chicago Tribune endorses libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson

In a well-reasoned and calming editorial, the Chicago Tribune has rejected both Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton as unsuited to become America’s president and instead endorsed libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson. The Tribune rejects the threadbare idea that supporting a third-party candidate amounts to throwing away your vote. If enough voters choose someone... Read more »
