Russell Halley

Posted By The Editors On Saturday, July 30th, 2011 With 2 Comments

Russell Halley is a lifelong political voyeur. Halley started writing for weekly newspapers in the early 70’s, advanced to a successful career as a freelancer, and was published in several national magazines.  Eventually, however, the call of commerce lured him away and he switched to circulation, working with many of the world’s largest publishers to increase readership.

As an avocation, Russell has always followed and participated in the minutia of the political world, and migrated from a hard left wing point of view to conservatism.

He was flattered when the San Jose Mercury News once described his style as “Republican Punk”, and prides himself on a certain expertise and insight on all things political, with a perspective that he hopes sheds light on the issues of the day.

    Halley’s critique of Allen Lichtman’s 13 Keys seems a bit flawed now, does it not, just as most of his analyses have been

      Halley responds:

      “Hi. I have to say that I am out of the prediction business for now. The November elections took everything I think I knew about politics and basically threw it out the window, as it did for millions of others who follow politics. Of course, now that we see how Obama perverted the IRS and got the main stream media to cover on Benghazi, it’s all a bit clearer: they stole the election.”

        Sorry. there was no larceny here. Nobody engaged in arm-twisting. The President was democratically elected,and all his alleged mistakes relative to the IRS and Bengazi happened after the fact. His election alone was an achievement. The people who voted for him understood that his resume might have been lacking. Truth can be stranger than fiction. Anyway, I am in complete concurrence with the San Jose Mercury’s depiction of you.
