    Mueller Time

    Way back in episode one of This Week in the Narrative, written three days after the 2016 election, some 124 weeks ago, I suggested that the crucial battle would be “directing the energy and anger now seen in so many streets across America away from the black hole of false narrative and towards the tangible.” […]

  • A 21st Century American Revolution

    “The revolution will not be televised”; it’s a statement that echoes in my head. What does it mean? Is it realistic to think that an entitled yet angered and complacent society can truly revolt against the system they are terrified of? Why do we speak of revolution so overtly? Does it need to be violent? […]

    Beto’s Choice

    Beto O’Rourke has officially announced his candidacy for President. I know what you’re thinking… Hey, it could happen, just look at Justin Trudeau in Canada. Just kidding; I suspect what you’re probably thinking is something like, ‘Are you f**king joking me?’ Leave aside for a moment the parts of Beto’s platform and policy history that […]

    2020 October Surprise – Trump’s War?

    It’s a sinking ship and, apparently, egoists can’t swim. Already, there’s a GOP primary challenger – William Weld, former governor of Massachusetts. Very likely there will be more, such as Mitt Romney or Jeff Flake. Right now, it doesn’t look like Trump will be reelected. Yet, if we’ve learned anything, it is not to underestimate […]

    The Right Side of History

    When most politicians are faced with negative elements from their past, they turn to one or more tried and true political strategies in order to deal with it. They may attempt to simply bury their past (see: Trump, Donald or Clinton, Hillary), or they may attempt to rebrand past negatives as actual positives, if you […]

    Nike’s Zion Metaphor

    Earlier last week, another edition of what has been called “the Greatest Rivalry in All of Sports” took place in Durham, North Carolina — a college basketball game between Duke University and the University of North Carolina, two schools separated by a mere 8 miles. The hype surrounding this year’s game was decidedly higher than […]

    Bye Bye Bezos

    Sometimes it’s hard to see the forest through the trees … particularly when the trees include a belligerent President declaring a national emergency over a fabricated political talking point, and Russian agents allegedly lurking around every corner, at every dinner table, and anywhere else people reject the mainstream media narrative. But if there ever was […]

    State of the Union

    “Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.” -Donald Trump, State of the Union Address Tuesday, February 9th, after much hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth, President Trump delivered his second State of the Union Address to Congress and the nation. It was a typically Trumpian cavalcade of disconnected thoughts, fake […]

    Ilhan Omar Did Nothing Wrong

    Ilhan Omar is a new member of the United States Congress, serving as a Representative in the House for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district. Omar made history in November for becoming the first Somali-American and the first Muslim woman (alongside Rashida Tlaib) to serve in the U.S. Congress. Right now, she has caught herself in a […]

    Coffee With Schultz

    At the end of January, billionaire ex-Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced that he was “seriously considering” a run for President in 2020. He joins other uber-rich tall foreheads like Mark Zuckerberg, Mark Cuban, and Michael Bloomberg in examining the prospect of wading into what seems will be the most untethered and out-of-control election in the […]
