Will The Real Hillary Please Stand Up, Part III (Early Adult Years )

from Gronda Morin

Gronda Morin

This is a repeat of an earlier work. Hillary Clinton is attempting to reemerge back into the fray. I want to challenge the right’s “fake news” campaign against her for over 30 years.

1999/ Marian Wright Edelman / Mrs. Clinton (Reuters)

Prior to 1996,  the year when the NY Times conservative columnist William Safire coined the phrase of Hillary Clinton as a congenital liar, there was still a lot of antipathy against her by republicans which started as early as 1974 during the time frame of her second job as a staffer on the House Judiciary Committee investigating Watergate, and this is before she became Mrs. Clinton. Years later in 2008, when she was running for elected office, conservative republicans contrived a story alleging that her boss, Jerry Ziefman had fired her for misconduct without a letter of recommendation. This tale was totally debunked by numerous credible news outlets but it still has legs. I…

The Republicans Have Started Their Bait And Switch Cons

You need to know this stuff.

Gronda Morin

Image result for photo of recent republican meetingsThe republican President-elect Donald Trump has frequently stated two all-encompassing promises to his followers, that he would always act to make America safer and that he would not do anything to harm the American average worker and family.

Many republicans in the US congress see this as a green light to enact their policy wish list by taking steps to reduce and eliminate business regulations which were enacted to prevent harm to the American average worker and family.

Reducing regulations that are counter productive, not effective and unnecessarily frustrating to small businesses in particular, in order to increase jobs, sounds like a laudable goal. But that is not what US House representatives were recently planning to do. Republicans along with a handful of Democrats were attempting to pass three laws which benefit their corporate donors at the expense of American people’s safety. This is not counting their efforts to close down the US house ethics…

Ruminations on a vile election

She says it beautifully

Views and Mews by Coffee Kat

This election has been painful. It’s taken a while to process. This is not a political blog and I’ve avoided the topic but this is part of my therapy. Normal writing will resume shortly.

It’s not about Republicans or Democrats. I have liberal leanings but have survived and admired some conservative presidents. I vote for the best candidate regardless of the party. Why exactly was I so troubled?

There were a lot of ironies and contradictions. Most notable is that the person with the most votes did not win…again. Another was that the person who laughed while another said bad things about women got fired but the person who actually said them was elected. Does that mean that our entertainment industry has higher standards than our government? I could go on but that’s not the point of this post.

I’ve lived long enough to remember (and had participated) in the…

Those Who Would Oppose the Crimson King

The the protests begin…

The Church of the Ass Bleeding Morons

Saturday would be a perfect day for protest; a bit of chill in the air, but no rain forecast. The event was to take place late Saturday afternoon and run on into the night. This allowed plenty of time to shake off my evening’s activities from the night before. Reports had been streaming across the wire showing noticeable protesting going on in various U.S. cities since it was announced Donald Trump had won the Presidential election. This protest would be Indy’s initial contribution to the politically progressive backlash against Donald Trump. I remembered a time I followed protestors camped out on Broadway and Colfax in Denver, Colorado, which had been a perfect study of modern day rebellion. I may have been handed another live example of society in revolt; time will tell. This may be only the beginning, or this thing might die out quick…that’s up to the citizens protesting.
