“Banshee” Finale Review, and Ranking the Seasons

It was the end of times, and—as is so often the case with TV finales–it was the worst of times. Cinemax’s “Banshee” was one of the most consistently underrated shows on television, and in fact many readers of this article may not have even heard of the series, let alone watched it. I want to […]

Episode 22–Are Social Conservatives Over?

In the first part of our “conservative trilogy” (looking at social, military, and fiscal), we wonder if social conservatives are over or merely in a lull? How does Trump—a twice-divorced “New York Values” foul mouth who can’t quote Bible passages—change social conservativism? Is it a good sign that in only 8 years the social battles […]

Episode 21–Is Bernie the New Ron Paul, Perot, Nader, Buchanan, or a Political Poet?

It’s our first “Bernie only” episode and we wonder if he’ll be the next Ron Paul, Ralph Nader, Ross Perot, etc. (lots of R-named ego-independents) and if there’s a link between mortality-fears and running for president. [Original title of episode “Save Us From Old Men Promising Revolution.”] Also discussed is if Bernie is a “political […]

Interview with Nigerian Activist Omolola Adele-Oso

 
Today’s audio interview is Nigerian Activist Omolola Adele-Oso as she talks about the under-mentioned Boko Haram’s deadly tactics, Nigerian corruption, the new President’s attempts to turn things around, the “Resource Curse,” and so much more. Some solid topics are brought up, as well as Lola’s work for Act4Accountability her group working to raise awareness to […]

Episode 20–What Are the Strategies for the General?

As we like to do with every 5th episode, this one prognosticates the future as we look at Trump and Hillary’s strategies for the general election. [Hint: We think HRC’s campaign manager may have an easier time than Trump’s, unless he pulls more “brilliant” moves like his infamous Taco Bowl picture.] And we also take […]

Sunday’s Sermons: Ted Cruz and Roy Moore Gone in the Same Week, is Social Conservatism in Trouble?

I just can’t seem to wipe the smile off my face these days. It’s not every week that sees Ted Cruz drop out of The White House race amid much controversy and embarrassing moments that might compromise him down the road (although he’s not full-blown finished like Jeb and Rubio). And it’s an even rarer […]

Bubba’s Triumphiant Return for “Alabama Valentine’s Day” (Mother’s Day) and MILF Countdown

That failed communist known as Alabama Liberal hasn’t let me post anything in more than two years, but I finally found a way to hack into his site. It turns out, his password is password, and even though it took me three hard years of trying (mostly by looking for a library so I’d have […]

An Audio Interview with Roger Hobbs, Author of the Terrific “Ghostman” Series

Longtime readers know I’ve been a fan of Roger Hobbs for years, and both of his novels have easily made Alabama Liberal’s Top Ten Books of the Year list. He was nice enough to have a wide-ranging conversation where we discuss his mysterious central character, influences (from other authors to Michael Mann), where to visit in Asia, […]

Episode 19–Should Red States and Blue States Swap Positions?

In one of our best and most personal podcast episodes yet, we cover a wide range of topics: in the beginning, we dance on Ted Cruz’s (campaign) grave, diss North Carolina’s ridiculous transgender laws, and then move into an examination of red state vs. blue state positions and wonder if they should think about swapping […]

Larger Editorial: Conservative Never Trump is Dead, Long Live Liberal Never Trump

 
The conservative version of The Never Trump Movement is dead. But that does not mean the Never Trump Movement itself is dead.
The sad truth of the Never Trump movement is that it came paradoxically too late and too early. It arrived at the exact time it was too late to beat Trump in the Republican primaries. [Why […]
