Officer Harry Dunn had the most prescient statement at the Jan 6 Select Committee Hearing where he said one should not have to be considered brave, to tell the truth. But his request to Congress could not be discounted.

The Select Committee Hearing on the January 6th terrorist insurrection on the Capitol, the attack on the United States was riveting. The Capitol police clearly demonstrated that the terrorists came to overthrow the ...

Pastor Greg Locke is a clear and present danger to America. He made it clear no one in his congregation should take COVID precautions else they'll be thrown out.

Many wonder how it is possible that so many Americans can be so resistant to save their own lives. After all, there is a life-saving vaccine. Tennessee Pastor Greg Locke is a clear reason.

These two reporters pushed back at both GOP narrative and misinformation as they defended Speaker Nancy Pelosi. REALLY!

My contention has always been that the media enhanced the viability that Donald Trump could be president back in 2015 and 2016. Both the mainstream media and the Fox News type media were complicit simply for ratings. Ultimately, allowing lies and misinformation to stay floating in the ethos created a trap door.

Jake Tapper did not disappoint in his interview with Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA). He called out Jim Jordan & Jim Banks as liars. He made clear that the insurrection was a Republican event.

Jake Tapper discussed the infrastructure deal with Pat Toomey. No breaking news here: Republicans still want the middle-class and poor to pay for the continued enrichment of the wealthy.

Tapper then moved on to the Select Committee to investiga...

Mehdi Hasan cuts to the chase. It really is not all that complicated. The committee is more credible without Jim Jordan and others.

Mehdi Hasan points out that, in fact, the Select Committee is bipartisan with the presence of Liz Cheney.

    Tiffany Cross took on Megyn Kelly's spat with Naomi Osaka from a direction inspected by few others, but that was necessary.

    When Megyn Kelly left Fox News, some may have believed she would try to attain some level of seriousness. After all, she could have been aided by the sympathy some felt after Trump attacked her for asking uncomfortable questions during a debate. Her rebirth was not to be.

    I knew I needed to pick up the call. And after the conversation, I was happy that I did. Afterward, this Right-Winger viewed Progressives in a different light. Please watch the entire video. It will make a difference.

    I got a call from a restricted caller. Usually, I do not take those. I took this one.

    "Is this Egberto?" the caller asked with a calm voice.

    "Yes," I responded. "This is Egberto"

    Too often media pundits have undue influence on politicians. They are often wrong. Ali Velshi pointed out that they were wrong on impeachment and with their Jan 6th caution.

    It seems Peter Doocy never gets enough. Once again, he proved his lack of critical thinking with his vaccine & mask question. Jen Psaki made him pay.

    Fox News' Peter Doocy once again thought he had a gotcha. Once again, he failed to do his homework. He failed to stay up to speed on the administration’s policies on COVID, vaccination and masking. And that made his question that more ignorant.

    Doocy pointed out that President...

    Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley is a perfect example of one who can spell out the Democratic & Progressive message for all to understand as he hits Republicans as well.

    I did a double-take as I listened to Ali Velshi interview Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley. You see, he was speaking in such a simple manner that grabbed one into a message that clearly touched every middle-class person interested in politics or agnostic to politics.

    Liz Cheney wanted to make it clear that she was not in support of traitors or insurrectionists but of the Speaker of the House. She supported the removal of Jim Jordan and Jim Banks from the Select Committee.

    I am not a fan of Liz Cheney. But we must admit that on this issue, she has shown herself to be a patriot. To come out in support of Republicans’ most hated personality is potentially a political career-ending move.

    An exasperated Rachel Maddow mapped out that Donald Trump, a criminal surrounded by criminals, is the Republican frontrunner for 2024.

    Rachel Maddow enumerated the list of Trump's officials that found themselves in jail or were indicted. She told what was a surprising truth.

    A reporter, apparently a Trump sycophant, asked Jen Psaki a silly question about the Biden administration appeasing Trump to get his folks vaccinated. Her answer was divine.

    As I listened to the White House press conference a couple of days ago, I felt sick listening to some of the questions. COVID-19 is starting to spread mostly to the irresponsibly unvaccinated people.

    In the press conference, we had reporters asking if it would ...

    Rep. Ro Khanna was on point about these billionaire astronauts being parasites to us all. And it is much deeper and exploitative.

    MSNBC Hallie Jackson got one dissenter from the gullible and programmed euphoria surrounding newly minted billionaire astronaut Jeff Bezos and his Blue Origin team successful 10-minute roundtrip to space. Democratic Congressman Ro Khanna hit the nail on the head.

    Congressman Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) did not pull any punches as he pointed out there are forces at work beyond a dumb Donald Trump. Heed his call.

    The attack on United States Capitol, the insurrection was clearly well organized by many. The New York Times' well-researched video on the actual event made it very clear. That kind of organization is well beyond Donald Trump's demonstrated intellect.

    Dana Bash challenged Senator Rob Portman to do something substantive. She told him, as a Republican, he should tell the Right-Wing media to stop lying about vaccines.

    This may have gone past most of those who listened. But believe it or not, like microaggressions are cumulative, assigning blame and responsibility through interviews can make an entire minute of word salad and spinning garbage moot. That is what happened with Dana Ba...

    Congresswoman Susan Delbene (D-WA) used the five winning words every Progressive and Democrat should use when the how-to-pay-for-it message comes.

    American families began getting deserved monthly checks based on the number of kids that they have. It was a part of the American Rescue Plan that Democrats passed. Not a single Republican voted for it.

    These White House reporters seem to live on a different earth. It is hard to believe this silly question to Jen Psaki did not embarrass her.

    One would think that the constancy of virtually slapping down the Fox News-like questions from Peter Doocy would be enough for any given press briefing. Evidently, that is not the case.

    Jen Psaki did not get a twofer today. She did not even receive a three-for. Instead, today was a several-for...

    Once again, Peter Doocy asked a silly question. This one, though, had danger and irresponsibility associated with it. Jen Psaki, in her way, slammed him.

    Peter Doocy continued an interchange with Jen Psaki with an inappropriate Fox News-like question. Then again, he represents Fox News. The Right-Wing is still taken aback about Jen Psaki calling out online vaccine misinformers and liars. It may have hit too close to home. Note he i...

    Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) points out that it is more likely that the Democratic reconciliation bill would be paid for and not the bipartisan bill. Here's why!

    Senator Tim Kaine appeared with Ayman Mohyeldin on MSNBC. As usual, the mainstream media, conservative and non-conservative alike, always ask those trying to do what is right socioeconomically for the poor and middle-class. How are you going to pay for it? The real questio...
