Russell Halley

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.
