Robert Cleveland

I am the IT Director for a nationwide document management solutions company, and a devoted husband and father. I am also a news junkie, always trying to stay up on the goings-on in politics in the United States and across the world.

I have an utterly useless BA in Liberal Studies from Cal State Bakersfield, and a Master's Degree in Information Systems from the University of Phoenix.

I'm always focused on my true loves: politics, my wife, technology, and my daughters (not in that order).

In my free time (what little of it I have), I love to write about politics - you can find my writings here on my blog, at, and at

I am also featured every Thursday afternoon at 1:00 PM on the Jaz McKay show on KNZR Radio

Streep’s Shrieks

Why on Earth should anyone care what some liberal actress said in a speech at an awards show?  Hollywood actors have been saying stupid things during awards show speeches for decades, and Meryl Streep’s screed was no different. She began the speech with this: I’ve lost my voice in screaming and […]

Fake News and Russia

Trump vs The 1st

Even though he isn’t officially the president until January, it seems that President-Elect Donald Trump can’t do much of anything without stirring up some controversy.  In the weeks since the election, the media has devoted ridiculous amounts of time and energy to micro-analyzing every name drop or rumor related to […]

Change We Can Believe In

Before the election: Conservatives abandoning their principles Republicans bullying everyone to vote for Trump Democrats bullying everyone to vote for Clinton Everyone pushing the narrative that the world will end if the other guy gets elected This is how it felt, as someone who disliked all of the candidates, writing […]

What 2016 Says About Us

Reprinted from original, found on AND Magazine. Who do we really want to be? While I’ve written quite a bit about the 2016 election, with only days to go, I feel like I haven’t been completely honest about how I truly feel about what this, the most contentious election in my […]

Double-Standard Democrats

My latest column is up at AND Magazine! Here is an excerpt: How to describe Democrats and double-standards? They’re like white on rice. Like peas and carrots. Like pigs in…well, you get the idea. The Democrat Party is full of contradictions, such as President Obama, the head of one of […]

Trumpkins Attack!

I find it amusing how Trump’s followers continue to jump all over Megyn Kelly, in a grudge that started over a year ago with a less-than-fawning question at the first GOP Primary Debate. I’m not a fan of Donald Trump or FOX News (I don’t watch cable news, except for […]

Religion Becoming Irrelevant

My latest column is up at AND Society! Here is an excerpt: On April 8, 1966, the cover of Time Magazine asked, “Is God Dead?” In the intervening 50 years since then, Western society seems intent on making the answer a resounding “YES!” A 2015 survey by the Pew Research […]
