Egberto Willies is a political activist, author, political blogger, radio show host, business owner, software developer, web designer, and mechanical engineer in Kingwood, TX. Egberto is an ardent Liberal that believes tolerance is essential. His favorite phrase is "political involvement should be a requirement for citizenship". He believes that we must get away from the current policies that reward those who simply move money/capital and produce nothing tangible for our society. If a change in policy does not occur, America will be no different than many oligarchic societies where a few are able to accumulate wealth while the rest are left out because it is mathematically impossible to catch up.
20 Big Broken promises Trump voters must be reminded of now!
Donald Trump made a lot of promises to his supporters. It is crucial that we continue to point out these 20 broken promises to Trump voters, whether they like it or not. As their realities start to misalign with his failed promises, some will turn against what is mostly a fraud.
What happens when Trump supporters realize they've been had?
There is a reckoning that will occur. And it may be closer than most think. And when it happens it won't be pretty. There are some crazy Trump supporters out there. And the 'sane' ones will not likely have the sway to mitigate the carnage.
Right-Wing anti-abortion man called my show and it went mostly well (VIDEO)
My Politics Done Right show targeted Evangelicals on Wednesday for their hypocrisy and outright evil. Misinformation weaponized them into a clear and present danger to the well-being of America. A Right-Wing anti-abortion guy called into the show and I think by the end, there was some common ground. What do you think?
The tale of three Cubans. Don't buy into the hypocritical political crap
I spent two days in Havana Cuba. I learned a lot speaking to three Cubans from a political perspective with points of views that were different but that intersected. It illustrates that the political discourse about Cuba by politicians and wealthy ex-patriots is hypocritical, shallow, and at best lacking. These Cubans should make you think.
Steve Bannon fesses up: Trump Tower meeting "treasonous" & "unpatriotic"
The wheels may be coming off the cart. And it does not look good for Donald Trump Jr. Steve Bannon did not mince his words of contempt for the President's son in Michael Wolff's new book. Could this be the reason Bannon believes Trump only stands a 30% chance of finishing his first term? Bannon had much to say.
This Republican deserves respect for this but scorn for something else
It is easy to have courage when one no longer has to answer to a sect within one's party that has lost all sense of morality and decency. Republican Jeff Flake's symbolic act required little coverage but may convince a few Republicans to stop for a second to see if their moral compass will reset and not vote a pedophile into office.
O'Donnell turns Trump stunt into GOP excoriation & Democratic narrative win (VIDEO)
Donald Trump screwed up again with a failed stunt, and Lawrence O'Donnell made him pay for it. O'Donnell turned the table on the empty chairs stunt in Trump's attempt to disparage Minority Leaders Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer. O'Donnell's analysis flipped the narrative. He showed what analytical journalism looks like in one well-designed segment.
This analysis of GOP tax cut scam should terrify every American
We still have time to stop the latest insanity in Washington. This crop of Republicans has taken the madness to the next level. This one could destroy the future of an entire generation. It is time for us to stop fighting among each other and keep our eyes on those that are pilfering us with a smile. But you can stop it.

A message to Bernie supporters, a 2018 win is in your hands
For the most part, I've stopped following the machinations of the DNC. It is true that they purged Bernie supporters from senior leadership positions. If one remembers that a party is but a conduit to deliver a payload, that should not matter as long as we have a large percentage of the grassroots.

Betsy DeVos greeted by protesters as she visits Houston Area High School (VIDEO)
Phones calls, tweets, texts, and Facebook messages started flying between Houston area activists as they got wind that President Trump's Education Secretary Nancy DeVos was coming to town. She did not visit any of the Harvey Hurricane damaged schools in Houston proper. She went to the flooded upscale Kingwood High School in the Houston suburbs for a photo-op showing her painting the walls.
Trump Effect: Minnesota mayoral candidate shocking racial rant (VIDEO)
Nothing shocks me these days with the level of racism still prevalent in America that is a part of the Trump effect. But this one sent chills down my spine with the matter-of-fact nature with which this politician said what he said about trains and 'the coloreds' that should embarrass the country.
Progressives: Russia must not cloud the suffering of working class America (VIDEO)
The Trump/Russian story is very important. But my fear is that Progressives massive concentration on Russia, a delightful topic for the Liberal Intelligensia is leaving our working class and poor brothers and sisters no better off for yet another election cycle. It is time to win them over, and Russia isn't it. This is what we should be doing.
Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) did not expect a town hall like this (VIDEO)
Congressman John Culberson (R-TX) conducted his town hall at the Spring Branch Middle School auditorium Houston Texas. Given the results, he may not recognize his district much longer. It is likely a far cry from the Country Club meeting with his benefactors he had a few weeks ago which drew a large protest at the entrance of the country club.
