Seventh Republican Debate: Analyzing statements made by other candidates but Donald Trump!

Keywords or Terms: Donald Trump; Lone-wolf Organized Event; Republican Party Seventh Debate; Jeb Bush; Chris Christie; Family Political Legacy; Ted Cruz; Marco Rubio; Iota of Electricity; Maniac, Stupid, fat and Ugly; Racial Profiling; Abortion; Politics of Annihilation and Narcissism; Megyn Kelly; FOX News Moderator; Exercise of Gamble: Unnecessary Emotional Outburst; Vulnerability of Establishment Politics; Strategy of demonizing rivals; and, Campaign Trail.
If Candidate Donald Trump was expecting to divert attention from other rivals in the Republican Party with his lone-wolf organized event, probably he truly accomplished that yesterday; however, no one can say with certainty that the nomination process will be the same henceforth. By organizing a competing event within the same city against the seventh Republican Party debate, Donald Trump appears to have said he is the candidate to beat and any other impostor at this time in the Republican Party makes less of a difference. He is …

FIFTH AND LAST 2016 DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES DEBATE: Is the preferred choice of party flag bearer determined?

Keywords or Terms: Iowa State caucuses; New Hampshire Primary; CNN; Des Moines, Iowa; Income Inequality; Bipartisanship; Social Security; Democratic Socialism; Capitalistic oligarchy; Foreign Policy; Qualification for the Office of the Presidency; Free Public College Tuition; Fixing America’s Tax loopholes; and rebuilding Crumbling Infrastructures and public policy
Two weeks and a day to the first New Hampshire State Presidential primary and one week exactly to the Iowa State Caucuses, the Democrats had their concluding debate or town-hall styled chit-chat for party nominee. From the look of things, except another unforeseen event arises before the November 8, 2016 general election, one for now  can repudiate President Harding’s campaign manager’s assessment of the 1920 republican nomination process in the context of the 2016 Democratic Party nomination: “the convention will be deadlocked, after other candidates have gone their limit, some twelve or fifteen men, worn out and bleary-eye…

Democratic Candidates Fourth Debate in Charleston, South Carolina: How far is far enough?

Keywords or Terms: Democratic Party Debate; OBAMACARE; Dodd-Frank Financial Regulatory Reform Law; Governor O'Malley; Senator Clinton; Senator Sanders; South Carolinian Democratic Party; NBC-NEWS; YouTube; Congressional Black Caucus Institute; Public Policy; Health care; Gun Control and lobby; Systemic Racism; and, Campaign Contributions
The dilemma facing the Democratic Party and its constituent members is the fact that, they have two front-runner candidates, one that appears enthusiastic, authentic and passionate with public policy advancements, the other, very much attuned to upholding present democratic administration’s legacy, with a probable commitment to preserving the signature health care reform law, aptly referred to as OBAMACARE. Senator Clinton was full of accolade for the current democratic administration angling out, the administration’s signed Dodd-Frank Financial Regulatory Reform Law and positioning of the nation towards universal health care in not so distance fut…

Readily Predictable Politics of Division at the Sixth Republican Presidential Aspirants’ Debate?

Keywords or Terms: Divisive Strategy; White House oval office; New Yorkers; South Carolinian; Canadian-Born Ted Cruz; American-born Donald Trump; New York Post Editorial; Advocated Trump’s tariffs against China; US Navy; Iranian water; Marco Rubio; Ben Carson; Jeb Bush; Chris Christie; John Kasich
For close to a century, the politics of race baiting, to differentiate American Political Landscape, has been exploited by both political parties; however, the Republican Party has benefited most especially in this realm, as its leaders had fanned aura of hate, divisions and or divisive variables that appear to have heralded their ticket to the White House Oval Office on a number of occasions. As the nature of this strategy appears to have worked rather well for Republican Presidential Aspirants in the past, one of the current front-runner for the 2016 Republican Party nomination, Senator Ted Cruz, attempted the strategy at the Sixth Republican Party debate holding at North Charleston, South …

President Obama Final State of the Union Speech

Keyword or Terms: President Obama State of the Union Speech; The White House Press Releases; Going out in Style
This is probably one of the best statements President Barack Obama ever offered in the State of the Union Speeches. It is so compelling, I had no option but to represent it verbatim:

"America has been through big changes before – wars and depression, the influx of immigrants, workers fighting for a fair deal, and movements to expand civil rights. Each time, there have been those who told us to fear the future; who claimed we could slam the brakes on change, promising to restore past glory if we just got some group or idea that was threatening America under control. And each time, we overcame those fears. We did not, in the words of Lincoln, adhere to the “dogmas of the quiet past.” Instead we thought anew, and acted anew. We made change work for us, always extending America’s promise outward, to the next frontier, to more and more people. And because we did – because we s…

Opioids, Addiction and Public Health collide in the race for 2016 White House

Keywords or Terms: Opioids Epidemic; Addictions; New Hampshire; South New Hampshire University; Criminalizing Addition; Appalachian States; Governor Jeb Bush; Governor Kasich; Governor Chris Christie; Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina; Expanding Affordable Care Act; Medicare; Oxycodone Addiction; Kroger Pharmacy; Cutting State Treatment and Addiction Budget; Political expediency; and, Pragmatic Solutions
We can all agree that a healthy citizenry is critical to a thriving Democracy; if not, the spate of 2016 White House aspirants reflecting on personal, family and public experiences in the past week, on the question of epidemic of drug addiction in majority of American cities, especially in the Appalachian States, where opioid addiction has reached a pandemic level, would have been inconsequential. Listen to Republican Governor Jeb Bush: “As a father, I have felt the heartbreak of drug abuse ... I never expected to see my precious daughter in jail. It wasn’t easy, and it became v…
