Mayday PAC Leadership: Not Alone but in Overlap with Other Political Corporations

The Mayday Super PAC, which has asked for big money donations in the name of stopping big money donations (“embrace the irony”), has marketed itself as something new and innovative, right down to the use of hipster indie millenial movement phrases like “kickstart” and “leap” and “change the story.” Given the vocabulary of Mayday PAC’s [...]

Americans Elect CEO Kahlil Byrd Leads Two Groups Recruiting Candidates… Conflict?

Fact One: Former Americans Elect CEO Kahlil Byrd is listed as a leader of Run for America:

“Run for America is a post-partisan initiative designed to fix our dysfunctional politics by strategically supporting a new generation of highly talented leaders, innovators, social change agents, entrepreneurs, and outside the box thinkers for public office. These leaders [...]

Meritocracy Loses In 2016 Presidential Poll

A new poll out by NBC and Marist shows, among voters in New Hampshire and Iowa, Hillary Clinton in the lead for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination and Jeb Bush in the lead for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton was shown to be far, far ahead of her nearest [...]

Myth of A Successful Iraq War Continues

I was struck when I passed by a new stand this morning and saw what was on the front cover of the Detroit Free Press. The headline read: Heartbroken U.S. Vets Watch In Dismay As Sacrifices In Iraq Unravel.

The implication was clear: American soldier The Iraq War in order to provide the [...]

This report, which we will update several times during the primary campaign and general election, will summarize what actions the different declared and likely presidential candidates are taking to incorporate surveillance software into their own political web sites. [...]

Voting To Confirm Judge David Barron, Bernie Sanders Lost My Support In The 2016 Presidential Election

The vote by Bernard Sanders to confirm David Barron today supports such a fundamental violation of our civil liberties that it cannot be reasonably excused. Sanders helped put a man who has no respect for our constitutional rights into a high judicial position. If he did it as a Senator today, he would do it as President in 2017. [...]

Bernie Sanders / Bank Of America 2016 Big Data Running Mates For The White House

Bernard Sanders is a frequent critic of Bank of America. So, the senator’s own Twitter feed, as well as Twitter feeds of his supporters, often include the phrase “Bank of America”. Twitter’s predictive system is too stupid, however, to notice that Sanders and his fans are describing Bank of America as heartless, corrupt, abusive, and vile. [...]

Sanders Challenges Americans To Drop Their Political Apathy

“Given the enormous problems facing our country, the fact that we are moving toward an oligarchic society and the fact that we are not addressing the planetary crisis of climate change, it is unacceptable for anybody to throw their hands up in despair and turn away from the political process. Historically in this country, people [...]

The Presidential Power of Hair Dye

K. of Washington State writes in to Irregular Times with a request:

Could you possibly offer a Robert Reich in 2016 bumper sticker?

(It’s one way of encouraging him to run. We need a good candidate with a major party affiliation. Independents like Bernard Sanders do not get elected, and he’s too old.)

Fact check: [...]

Bernie Sanders Versus Hillary Clinton On NSA Spying

If you care about the Fourth Amendment’s promise of protection from unreasonable search and seizure, the choice between Hillary Clinton and Bernard Sanders is crystal clear. [...]

Rand Paul Versus Bernard Sanders On CIA Spying Against The US Senate

Here we are, a full day since the news that the CIA has been conducting illegal spy operations against the United States Senate. In reaction to the revelations yesterday, our writer J. Clifford speculated that the issue could enter the 2016 presidential election, with libertarian Republican Rand Paul and independent Bernard Sanders taking special interest [...]
