“The Progressive Professor” Commenting On Election Results Wednesday 1 AM EST On Jon Grayson Overnight AM 1120 KMOX St. Louis!

I am pleased to announce that I will be on the Jon Grayson Overnight show on AM 1120 KMOX St Louis on Wednesday morning at 1 AM to comment on the election results for the Presidency and for the US Senate.

I have been on Jon Grayson’s show three times, and those interviews are on the right side of the blog.

If you have time, and can stay up late, as millions of Americans will, to celebrate victory for Hillary Clinton, be sure to tune in!

The Moment Has Arrived: The Election Of The First Woman President Is Coming In 24 Hours!

The time has finally arrived!

One day from this writing, America will have its first woman President, way behind many other nations, including Great Britain, Germany, Israel, India, Pakistan, and others.

America will have broken the glass ceiling permanently!

America will have demonstrated that it is a true democracy, successively electing an African American President, and a woman President!

Hillary Clinton will be an outstanding President, who will further fulfill the progressive agenda of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama.

But also the progressive tradition of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt as well!

The greatness of America is evident, and it will continue to be the nation that the world admires and respects!

Donald Trump Reaction On Tuesday Night, November 8, Crucial For Civil Order And Stability: What Will He Say And Do?

Tuesday night, the Donald Trump reaction to his impending defeat will be crucial for civil order and stability.

The question is what he will say and do, as it will make a dramatic difference on the future.

Will he be statesmanlike and concede defeat in a dignified way, as all previous Presidential election losers have done?

Or will he stir animosity and encourage civil disorder, chaos, anarchy, and violence?

If he does the latter, there is only one answer, to hold him accountable, as he is not above the law!

If he “shouts fire in a crowded theater when there is no fire”, he must be summarily charged with inciting revolution and disorder, and be arrested, charged, and convicted, and pay the price!

Trump has escaped prosecution for his many violations of the law, but now it is time to pay up for his crimes, if he causes disruption of the body politic!

Hopefully, he will recognize that his historical reputation, already in tatters, can be rehabilitated somewhat if he acts like a gentleman and a good loser.

But do NOT hold your breath expecting that, as you are likely to be disappointed!

Early Voting In 37 States, But Should Be In All States In Future!

37 states have allowed early voting, while 13 have not, and that is wrong, and must change in the future.

The states that do not have early voting include:

New Hampshire
Rhode Island

Six others allow absentee voting only on an early basis

New York
South Carolina

At the same time, three states have all mail voting–Colorado, Oregon, Washington.

It is time for ALL states to allow early voting, and there should be encouragement for all mail voting, as the most efficient system of all.

Requiring everyone to show up on Election Day is outdated, and difficult for many, with limited hours, long lines at the end of a day at work,and possible bad weather conditions, as well as difficulties for those with disabilities.

Time to modernize our voting system to encourage everyone to vote, and make it easy to vote!

Demonization and Polarization Gone Amuck: The Attacks On Hillary Clinton

The demonization and polarization that has developed around Hillary Clinton has gone amuck!

No public figure has been put through so much character assassination and disrespect as the dignified, courageous next President of the United States.

She has been accused of corruption, malfeasance, and every crime that any sick, demented person can conjure up.

She has faced the most dangerous and mentally unstable opponent in all of American history, but has refused to get down into the gutter with Donald Trump.

She faces the likelihood of possible investigation and impeachment by vengeful, despicable Republicans, but she will emerge with her grace and reputation unsullied, except by the lowest scum imaginable in the extremist right wing party that the Republicans have become.

She will fight tooth and nail for the American people, and will continue the great work of the 44th President, Barack Obama, who has campaigned for her like no previous President has done for his designated successor of his party.

A great moment is coming on Tuesday night, probably by 11 pm, and the decent people in America will rejoice in the election of the first woman President of the United States, and the 45th President!

Donald Trump Delusional: North Carolina, Florida, Nevada, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Colorado, Michigan, Wisconsin, Virginia All Gone

Donald Trump is totally delusional, running all over the nation, claiming he is winning, when it is assured he will lose big time in tomorrow’s election!

Trump seems to think he will win North Carolina, Florida, Nevada, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Colorado, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Virginia, but they are all gone!

Trump will have trouble keeping “Red” states, including Arizona, Utah, and even Texas, and is assured to lose North Carolina, which went for Barack Obama in 2008 but for Mitt Romney in 2012.

Trump will have to keep all “Red” states, and win all “Swing” states too, or take a “Blue” state, and anyone who is betting on all that is a fool!

The surging Latino vote and women’s vote insures that Trump will lose Florida, and that will be, effectively, the end of the election before November 8 ends!

Grand Rapids: Donald Trump Is NOT Gerald Ford, And Michigan Will NOT Go To Republican Party, And Hillary Clinton Visit Insures That!

Donald Trump visited Grand Rapids, Michigan a few days ago, in a desperate attempt to win that state’s electoral votes, the state of Gerald Ford, our 38th President.

Hillary Clinton will visit it today, Monday, in her last full day of Presidential campaigning.

There is no debate that Gerald Ford, a decent man, a moderate conservative Republican, a principled President who is too often underrated, would NOT endorse Donald Trump, were he alive, any more than a whole slew of Republicans, alive and dead–including George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, Colin Powell, Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham and innumerable others who are living, and such past Republicans as Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, along with Ford.

Donald Trump could not walk in the shoes of Gerald Ford, and one can be sure his wife Betty would be leading the denunciation of misogynist, sexist, sexual abuser Donald Trump!

Donald Trump is a total disaster for the Republican Party and its heritage, and one can be sure that Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower are sobbing right now at what has happened to their party!
