The 2020 Election – Time Mag Story and the Quest for Power


Like many, I read the Time Magazine story, ” The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election.” by Molly Ball, and was astonished.  The story unfolds a couple of years before the 2020 election.   A key person in the orchestration of the “shadow campaign”, Mike Podhorzer, known as “the wizard”, began to essentially “war game” the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.  Mr. Podhorzer is the Political Director of the AFL-CIO, the largest federation of unions in the United States, nominated and installed by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumpka.

Here are some of the highlights of the story:

On this episode of “The Federalist Radio Hour,” RealClearInvestigations and RealClearPolitics writer Mark Hemingway joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss Time Magazine’s article “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election” and how it demonstrates the corporate media’s bias in approaching the 2020 presidential election.

Is There an Unreasonable Fear of Black Men?


When viral videos of conflicts between blacks and law enforcement officers, blacks being harassed by white women comedically known as “Karens,” or blacks being criminally profiled by overzealous white males are released, I make it a point to say as little as possible – especially on social media.

Generally, it’s very difficult to know what ensued and render judgment on what happened – and what should happen to achieve “justice” with minimal information provided in a 15-, 20-, or 25-second video clip. The Rodney King debacle should’ve taught us as much (but didn’t). Additional evidence is needed to help contextualize the incident for a better understanding of what exactly occurred and then, what should or shouldn’t happen to the relevant actors going forward. Ideally, prudence would dictate patience until supplementary evidence is made available before people dispense their verdicts and punishments.

That brings me to the recent case of Ahmaud Arbery.

Juanita Broaddrick: The Original #MeToo


Juanita BroaddrickJuanita Broaddrick joins Dave at Whiskey Politics for an in-depth, transparent and honest discussion about her experience in 1978 that many had discounted for decades, but now with the #MeToo movement, even the liberal media are coming around including the New York Times which recently stated “We should look clearly at the credible evidence that Juanita Broaddrick told the truth when she accused Clinton of raping her.”

One of the core principles of the cultural left is dissatisfaction.  Perhaps “destructiveness” would be a more apt term. It would be easy to characterize this dissatisfaction/destructiveness as merely objecting to the principles that made the United States a great nation.  And, of course, there is much of that in left-leaning ideology.  As I discussed […]
