I’m excited to announce that once a week I’ll be interviewing a person for Salon.com’s Salon TV. My first interview was of award winning filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi whose new documentary “Outside the Bubble” will premier on HBO on October 29. Here’s the link to check out the interview.
Rudy Giuliani has transformed from America’s mayor to America’s punchline. It started in 2016 campaign when Rudy desperately defended Trump on every issue including the Access Hollywood tape. But after last week the transformation is complete: Rudy is a joke. Hope u check out my new article for NBC.com
How Many Bombs Does a Non-Muslim Need to Set Off Before Being Called a Terrorist? I wanted to share my new article for about the glaring double standard by both Trump and the media over not calling the Austin bomber a terrorist. This is a man who waged a two week campaign of terror that left two dead and injured five. And listeners to my SiriusXM radio show from Austin shared how they had been terrorized by this bomber for two weeks. If the bomber had been Muslim, there’s zero doubt this would be called a terrorist and Trump would’ve have tried to use it to further his political agenda. But this isn’t just about double standards- it’s about keeping Americans safe. Hope you find the article of interest. Thanks
We learned on Tuesday that the gunman who killed 17 people on Feb 14 had etched swastikas into his gun magazines. And last week the media reported the gunman had spewed anti-black, anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant and anti-Semitic comments online and in person. Add to that 5 of the people he killed were Jewish and he shot and killed two students in a Holocaust studies class. But still politicians and many in the media only talk about his mental issues. Why are they so hesitant to talk terrorism given the facts? This makes us less safe as a nation especially given documented spike in white supremacist terrorism in 2017.
The NRA has just become the enemy of a generation of young Americans -I wanted to share my new article about how younger people fully get that the NRA values access to guns over their lives. We saw a stunning example of that last night at the CNN Town Hall on gun violence in Florida. Hope you check out my new article.
I wanted to share my appearance on CNN about my Palestinian father’s immigration story and how it’s truly the American story. Trump wants to end what he calls “chain migration” which is simply the idea that when an immigrant moves to America, they later bring their family to America to also share in the American Dream. In the segment CNN aired photos of my Palestinian family including one of my late father holding me as a baby. Trump simply doesn’t believe in the American story – he instead is motivated by keeping America white. Hope u check out the clip HERE.
I wanted to share the story of my Palestinian immigrant father who came to America in 1957. He was the first in his family to visit the U.S., let alone live here. And like countless immigrants before and after him, after he got settled in his new world he brought over relatives. Now 60 years later there are Obeidallahs in various states who are lawyers, pharmacists, doctors, small business owners and the like all contributing to America. I hope you will check out my Daily Beast article about my late father’s journey to America and it undermines Trump’s claim that family unification of immigrants must be stopped.
When things are going this badly for Trump he typically files for bankruptcy. But this time Trump can’t run away from his problems. He is stuck with them and he and the GOP are going to pay a price this November for Trump’s failures. My new CNN article that I hope you will check it out. Thanks!
Trump owes each and every American $$$ for dragging us into his horrible reality show. And worst of all we are barely one year into this reality show.Hope you check out My new CNN article on why Trump should be paying us for the crap he has put us through with his reality show antics. Thanks
Moammar Gadhafi had his gold gun. Saddam Hussein boasted a gold toilet-paper dispenser. Now Trump has designed his very own gold presidential coin. Trump’s name appears on the coin more than the words United States of America. And as opposed to past Presidents, Trump removed the Seal of the United States from his presidential coin and instead it says “Make American Great Again.” Trump is truly a 3rd world dictator. Hope u check out my new CNN article
