Not only did I create a Youtube video on the subject.
But other people are getting into the act as well. Rhea over on Medium has a great article about the issue as well. Please check it out. I don’t know Rhea from Adam, but this is about getting the truth out.
Google is claimed to have a Hillary Bias. #JumpTheSharkActivism raises its head again. And a look at the 2016 Democratic primary and where we go from here. On a special Thursday edition of Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.

Liberal Dan Radio airs one hour later at 9pm central this week for a discussion of the remaining Democratic primary races. Bernie Sanders makes his final push to convince the superdelegates to change their votes to him. Hillary Clinton looks to secure enough delegates to be the presumptive nominee after New Jersey polls close. And voters on both sides are going crazy tearing each other apart in order to life their candidate to the peak.
Meanwhile Donald Trump gets a bump, but will it last? How will he run a successful campaign while pissing off the media the entire time?
The Libertarian Party already has its nominee, and to nobody’s surprise it was Gary Johnson. Does he have a chance this year? Or will he be a spoiler.
Those topics and more this week on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
The Bernie Sanders campaign want the Superdelegates to switch their votes to Hillary Clinton because they are concerned about Donald Trump and his recent poll numbers rising since he became the presumptive nominee. Is the sky falling? Is disenfranchising the majority of voters in the Democratic primary the only way to avoid getting Trump in the oval office?
Did you know that when John McCain clinched the GOP nomination that he had a bump in the polls.
Did you know that when Mitt Romney clinched the GOP nomination that he had a bump in the polls.
And now Trump gets a bump in the polls after he clinched the GOP nomination.
How am I to interpret that?
Well, considering that President Obama also had a bump in the polls when he won the nomination I would interpret the data as saying winning your party nomination gives you a bump in the polls.
#mansplaining? #whitesplaining? #JEWSPLAING? These are terms that can be found on the internet, especially Twitter, They describe a real phenomena where people are condescending towards others. But in doing so they make a negative out of the noun where none should exist. While there is nothing wrong with pointing out bad behavior in general, doing it while using bad behavior yourself is bad.
This is one of many examples of #JumpTheSharkActivism that I will be discussing tonight on my podcast.
I will be discussing other topics as well, so feel free to call in and discuss the issues with me at 8pm central on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
Donald Trump said many things during the campaign that he is now walking back (or as we say down here in Louisiana, he is crawfishing). How many times do you think that will happen? I will review some of them.
Nevada was crazy over the weekend, with the 3rd tier in the 3 tier caucus process finishing up over the weekend. Bernie Sanders supporters are mad. But should they be? Or is it just missteps in a campaign that has been pretty well run for the most part? I know I discussed the south and why that is one of the reasons Bernie lost. I will go over a few others as well.
Those issues and more tonight on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
Oklahoma is a red state. Oklahoma is what happens when the GOP runs the place. People who support idea of Bernie or Bust in “states that matter”* risk putting this nation in the same predicament. We end up with Conservative judges who make ridiculous rulings about consent and non consent OR who draft laws that do not adequately protect women. You also wind up with women losing body autonomy.
Oklahoma is the future #BernieOrBust risks. Just think about it.
The Democratic Party nomination process is over. While not technically eliminated, Hillary’s wins were so large yesterday that her pledged delegate lead is, for all intents and purposes, insurmountable. Last night his campaign shifted the discussion from that of winning the nomination to that of trying to get as many delegates to push the party platform leftward. And today, the Sanders campaign started laying off staff.
I will be discussing where the campaign went wrong, the benefits of their continuing to amass delegates, and some of the ridiculousness coming from the Bernie or Busters.
I will also discuss the GOP campaign. Cruz has named a running mate despite being mathematically eliminated from the first ballot. Trump steamrolled over the rest of the field making a 2nd ballot much less likely. And Trump also got a very fitting endorsement.
Those issues and more at 8pm central on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
The day is 4/20 and it is the traditional day of weed smokers everywhere. I will give some commentary on what I feel about the prohibition of marijuana and what our country should do about it.
But for most of the show I will be discussing the several issues pertaining to the 2016 primary elections, specifically why I believe Bernie Sanders will be unable to win the superdelegates that he would need to obtain the nomination of the Democratic Party.
Those issues, headlines, tweet of the week, and more at 8pm Central on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
