Analysis: Obama the Avenger and His Vendetta Against Trump and the GOP

The First Family is exacting revenge on the candidate who led the Birther movement and the party that tormented them for the past eight years.

– Chemi Shalev – Haaretz

commentaryBarack Obama is fired up and ready to go.

The Lie We Live

UPDATE: Published on Oct 28, 2016

The Lie We Live (2015) is a short film written & created by myself, Spencer Cathcart, which I originally published in January 2015.

I also licensed new music to avoid any issues in the future.
