But For FBI Director James Comey, Hillary Clinton would be The Next US President

from Gronda Morin

cartoon-dt-kissing-comey-imrsI am convinced that the FBI’s letter, instigated by its Director James Comey was the proximate cause (the final straw) that caused the democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton to lose to the republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump. If the vote were held on October 27, 2016, the day before the controversial FBI “October Surprise” letter was made public, Hillary Clinton would have prevailed.

According to Nate Silver, as of October 27, she had an 81% chance of winning, but after the letter was released, her chances went down to 65%. This is true despite all the obstacles Mrs. Clinton had to overcome, starting with her husband Bill Clinton’s foolish interference by his importune meeting with the DOJ chief, Loretta Lynch at an airport where he spoke to her for about 20 minutes. This placed Loretta Lynch in a position where she felt obliged to recuse herself from taking any part in the…

On Being Unable to Reach the Fifth Stage of Grief

Excellent thoughts and reaction to the election from an American ex-patriot

Buffalo Schnitzel

I felt this election in my bones.

I’ll be honest–this is the first political race that I’ve ever lost sleep over, that affected my mood, that made me feel uncontrollably combative towards the ‘other side’ even when I tried very, very hard not to. I know I’m far from alone in this.

I desperately wanted to be an activist–if we were in the States, I can guarantee I would have donned my very own coordinated pantsuit and gone door-to-door, making quite the impassioned case.

Even though I once promised myself to avoid all political talk on Facebook and stick to family pictures or light updates on the state of my being, for the past month or so I just couldn’t help myself. I poured a glass of wine as soon as I got home from work and thought, no, no, stay away, stay awayno one’s mind has…

The aftermath of the storm. A hurricane story

Have a listen! 🙂

Allie Potts Writes

Hurricane Matthew (2016) Hurricane Matthew on October 4th, 2016. Image courtesy of Wikimedia commons There is a storm coming, and for once I’m not being metaphorical. It’s an actual blow you down and knock you around kind of storm. The kind of storm that gets named as if humanizing it will somehow make it any less dangerous.

This isn’t my first hurricane. That dubious honor goes to a storm known as Hugo. I was just a kid at the time and barely paid attention to the fuss made about the storm on the news. Why should I? It formed far away and was impacting people I’d never met. Going to school and playing with my friends were much more important.

The hurricane weakened as it came in contact with land. I was even less concerned. I went to bed that night thinking that while there might be a few gusts and a little…

Let Me Remind You Fuckers Who I Am

This is great!

I am not really into the US politics. They concern me as much as an episode of “House of Cards” would. But, I found this parody interesting enough to share.

I’m Hillary goddamn Clinton. I’m a political prodigy, have been since I was 16. I have an insane network of powerful friends. I’m willing to spend the next eight years catching shit on all sides, all so I can fix this fucking country for you. And all you little bitches need to do is get off your asses one goddamn day in November.
