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

Reality Is Hate

My latest column is up at AND Magazine. Here is an excerpt: The United States of America is such a horrible place to live. It’s a wonder that anyone lives in this nation voluntarily, we’re such a motley collection of racists, bigots, homophobes, trans-phobes, and haters. It is virtually unimaginable […]

Just Give It Up, Bill

The news was all over the blogosphere yesterday: OMG! Bill Kristol might have a pick for POTUS! To quote our current incompetent-in-chief: Let me be clear. I don’t care who Bill Kristol picks for his thus-far theoretical third-party run for President.  Kristol’s efforts were doomed to fail before they ever […]

The Conservative Option

Let’s face it: this election season has been insane.  If you’re anything like me, you’re tired of it all.  Every time I hear Clinton or Trump, I have an overwhelming desire to live in a sensory deprivation chamber for the next several months, so I can skip all of the BS and […]

Hillary’s Logic

My latest column is up at AND Magazine! Here is an excerpt: Last week, for the first time in this election cycle, I tuned in to the Democrat primary debate. It was an interesting experience, listening to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders basically agreeing that the U.S. economy should be […]

Thank You, Mr. Trump

This has certainly been the most interesting election cycle of my lifetime – more so even than the debacle that was the “hanging chads” of the 2000 general election.  And perhaps the most interesting aspect of this primary process is what it says about the character of our nation. And […]

Recognizing Evil

My latest column is up at AND Magazine! Here is an excerpt: It’s been a long time coming. In the face of mounting pressure by Congress, Secretary of State John Kerry has finally acknowledged the genocide of Christians and other ethnic minorities by ISIS in the Middle East, which has […]

Primary Meme!

Okay, folks…It’s Monday. I don’t know about you, but I’m about as tired of this election process as I can possibly be…and that doesn’t bode well if we’re going to make it all the way to November. It’s time to lighten things up a bit. So here’s the deal: I’m […]

Calm The Hell Down

My latest column is up at AND Magazine. Here is an excerpt: The story behind the GOP primary is anger. The polls, the pundits, and the voters seem to be in agreement: people are angry, and that anger is translating into votes. Donald Trump is intent on riding that wave […]

Donald Trump: Serial Liar

Out on the campaign trail, Donald Trump has been hitting Ted Cruz for saying that Trump loves Obamacare. Here’s what Cruz actually said (starts at 4:13): “A vote for Marco Rubio is a vote for amnesty; and a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for Obamacare.  If you look […]
