Umpquaby Geraldo Rivera | Oct 01, 2015
The mass murder at Umpqua again reveals we are a gun sick nation. All the 2d Amendment bullshit aside, the gun lobby controls the country, and allows armed maniacal lunatics to roam free and kill.
That said, isn't it malpractice per se for any educational institution not to have at least one armed guard on campus trained and ready to fight gunfire with gunfire?
Cops are great, but unless someone is right there, armed and ready, locke...
Armed Guardby Geraldo Rivera | Oct 01, 2015
The president's anguish over this latest campus massacre is no doubt genuine. We share his grief. He says grief is not enough, that we have to do something.
Why not tell us what to do Mr President? What bill do you offer, what legislative scheme? Will you rally the governors you cited? Tell us how to stop this in the real world, with implementable steps that do not require some vast left wing conspiracy.
You blame the gun lobby? Why n...

Perhaps that is the kind of scandal the Rep...

But enough about me, I'm not running.
Hillary is, and I think, she may have her critics on the ropes for the first time in a long time. She is in the process of turning a corner and rec...
Trump Was Rightby Geraldo Rivera | Oct 07, 2015
Donald Trump is right about President George W. Bush and the devastating consequences of W's ill-conceived Iraq War. It was a waste of lives and treasure. In political terms, as significantly, the eccentric billionaire businessman now leading the GOP pack in the race for the White House had the courage to do what Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and I, did not.
He opposed the 2003 invasion.
I didn't. Like Clinton and Kerry, I suspended d...
