Fear and Loathing this Election Cycle!

By Alberto Pupo

Last night’s Presidential debate, was an exercise in futility. This is the culmination of almost two decades now of a country which has been soaking up Reality tv, combined with a never-ending war of error. Now after last night it is clear that this election cycle is an 14264908_1219415344798946_1590424831154924402_nunmitigated disaster and we the people have let it get to this point.

Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton is a gift handed to us by the 1% that runs this Nation. Because it is a long running joke among the “elite” that Americans only want to engage in their viewing of the Bachelorette, Dances With Stars, Survivor, etc. That the game of politics is something that they have no time for. Going on Continue reading

Simply the Truth

By Alana Dougall

Screw this nonsense of “Bernie is not a democrat.” Bullshit. Yes, he’s been an independent most of his political career, but he’s voted the majority of the time the exact same as democrats in Congress, and no one complained about him being an independent then. The math has nothing to do with not acknowledging the DNC rules. I’ve been registered democrat since I was old enough to to vote, and voted for Obama the first time. 5064313I know what the rules are. This isn’t about the rules, this is about blatant cheating with the allusion of choice. Math doesn’t lie.

Secondly, Clinton changes her opinion on everything when ever it is politically expedient for her to do so. She’s been on the wrong side of history more times than she’s been on the right one whether that’s our involvement in Iraq, Iran, Libya, she supported her husband’s decision to repeal Glass-Steagall (which directly contributed to the 2008 housing crisis), she voted for the Panama Pact that allowed for offshore tax havens for American companies to avoid paying taxes, she was in favor of NAFTA which caused the Continue reading

Enter the New Monarchs!

By Alberto Pupo

All Hail the new monarchs! History has a strange way of repeating itself, and as the 2016 Presidential Primaries are coming to a close, it seems like we have arrived full circle at such a moment. Already Donald Trump has been the new monarch, with all his ego and bluster, it is obvious he wants to rule the United States as King. However… every king needs his queen? Last night marked the final round of Democratic Primaries. A night trumpClintonwhich has been declared “historic” by a slavish Corporate Media that is practically wetting itself with the prospects. It has been a long time. We come full circle, a Country that was founded on a Revolution to depose a monarch. Now finds itself choosing between two.

These primaries have been a Continue reading

Bernie or Bust: The only Rational Choice

By Alberto Pupo

Yes, it is almost over…. But not quite, a Primary season yanked directly out from Game of Thrones. We have deception, intrigue, drama, scheming (we are looking at you Wasserman Schultz). But now the time has come to declare a winner. The queen is 4tessierWEB-blog480already reaching for the crown in a unilateral coronation. But the only chance we have to save America comes in the guise of Senator Bernie Sanders. After all the madness we are caught between Clinton and Trump… our only option is to go Bernie or Bust.

The primary contest between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders has been close… (and full of fraud in some instances).Despite the rigging, despite most primaries shutting out independent voters Senator Sanders finds himself within striking distance and we are heading into what will be Continue reading

The People Demand Progress!

By Alberto Pupo

This is the end of the status quo. In what has been a strange and vicious primary fight, several things have become evident. The people are tired of politics as usual and have a desire to embrace a more Progressive America. This is not a spontaneous overnight reaction. This all started with Occupy Wall St., while the occupations were violently brought to an end (via the corrupt use of the Patriot Act), Americans everywhere awoke to dna-progressive-societythe realization that our economic system was corrupt and rigged for 1% of the Nation. Now we have a candidate who supported and endorsed the movement when everyone else decided to engage in political cowardice and support their Corporate Donors. Now in 2016 there is a golden moment the Republican Party is in shambles with no clear leader and there is a candidate in Bernie Sanders who can usher in Continue reading

The reason for Trump

By Alberto Pupo

Anger, hatred, and bullying behavior. Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has been one “lovefest” away from causing a full-blown civil war. Things are so out of control even CNN 23-reality-trump.w529.h352is starting to take note of the recent madness in Chicago. Naturally Mr. Trump blames everyone else but himself for this mess, but is he responsible for all of this? Is there another Party that shares the responsibility for this spectacle? Unfortunately, the answer is in the mirror.

Do Americans have a fetish for notorious celebrities? The more inane the capers, the more Americans coo over their desire to share in their fantasy world. Almost two decades ago now “reality tv” first hit the United States courtesy of MTV. It was supposed to show what happens “when people stop being polite and get real” This craze went on to spin various “reality scenarios” that have captivated Americans. As viewership increased so did disdain for other literary pastimes like reading and Continue reading

Domestic Terrorism = White Privilege

By Alberto Pupo

Want to overthrow the government? Take the law into your own hands waltz into a Federal facility with no resistance? You can do this, if you are a true red blooded white male. The Oregon siege is currently a very quiet and natural embarrassment as a group of anti-government insurgents have simply taken over a federal facility. Meanwhile the Federal Government sits back because after all “they are just good ole boys never meaning no tumblr_njxngu2HAJ1trs6fyo1_500harm”. By contrast any group of non-white individuals would have been captured branded terrorists and sent to Guantanamo or to make matters easier simply shot on site.  Does white privilege now allow for an individual to commit acts of domestic terrorism without legal consequence? We may have just hit a new low.

Since the beginning of 2016 the Bundy and company have been Continue reading

Do Not Give in to the Fear in 2016…

By Alberto Pupo

The new year has arrived. After a long drawn out orgy of polls and Trump madness, this year an ultimate decision will be made as the Obama era comes to a close and we begin anew with a blank slate. The choices this year are interesting because for the first time in forever? (Don’t sue me Disney), the Progressives of America finally have a legitimate 12230914_1651822955086556_1989907803_ncandidate who wants to serve the people for a change. However all is not rosy as there are still pockets resistant to change and a “safe candidate” standing in the way of true positive change coming to America.

Bernie Sanders must prevail. Some way somehow the United States cannot afford to allow the golden opportunity to slip away.   If things go well at the ballot box we have the possibility to have a Middle Class resurgence in America. With a resurgent Middle Class (while this will not herald the end of inequality), it will be a shift in the right direction after Continue reading

ISIS, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!

The Muslims are coming quick hide behind the Donald’s wall!   It started in Paris and really picked up steam in Cali, What was once just  a varsity league Al Queda” has now become a bonafide threat… the Country is in Defcon 6 and the Neo Crusaders are chomping at the bit to invade the Holy Land for more crude. Meanwhile the Media is engaging in what they U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks at a rally in Sarasota, Floridado best fear mongering and polls about how we have been fear mongered? Is this the new normal in America? To see a Caliphate underneath every bed? Meanwhile America crumbles and Corporations continue to their own brand of domestic terrorism.

Nothing creates a Fascist like a Continue reading
