TAKE ACTION: Michigan needs science-driven standards for PFAS in drinking water

TAKE ACTION: Michigan needs science-driven standards for PFAS in drinking water

The following post is cross-posted from our good friends at Michigan Clear Water Action. In mid-June, after months of pressure from Clean Water Action members and public health advocates, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) finally released their study on the health effects of PFAS contamination. Emails between Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials, the White House, and […]

Gonna Get Her ELECTED! with special guest Lily Herman

Gonna Get Her ELECTED! with special guest Lily Herman

Donald Trump isn’t just a misogynist. Donald Trump is a misogynist who cheats on his pregnant wife without a condom. Donald Trump is a misogynist who argued that a woman who accused him of sexual harassment was not hot enough to assault. And Donald Trump is the misogynist who is about to gut Roe v. Wade. Unsurprisingly, women have noticed. […]

The race that could decide control of the House is now a toss up

The race that could decide control of the House is now a toss up

Michigan Republicans have been protected by maps gerrymandered for their pleasure, but that could change in 2018 Mike Bishop won his last election by 17 percent, more than double Donald Trump’s 7-point edge in the Michigan’s 8th congressional district. Less than two years later, he has about 50/50 chance of being reelected, according to The Cook Political Report. Explaining the […]

Why are *you* angry? Are you Red or Blue?

Why are *you* angry? Are you Red or Blue?

Everyone is angry. I get it. Our country is as divided as I can remember it being in my lifetime. Friends are divided. Institutions are divided. Families are divided. People that never seemed to be “political” are suddenly, and surprisingly, strident defenders of a particular belief or position–or equally vocal about being against that position. Everywhere you go these days […]

The Democratic Blue Wave, brought to you by activists like YOU!

The Democratic Blue Wave, brought to you by activists like YOU!

There is a lot of talk about the inevitable, impending Democratic Blue Wave coming to America this November. I have news for you, it’s not going to happen. It’s not going to happen, that is, unless everyone — not just long-time Democratic Party volunteers and not just political newcomers like Indivisible groups and other members of the #Resistance — links […]

Do you have $10 help Eclectablog keep going another 10 years?

Do you have $10 help Eclectablog keep going another 10 years?

If you can, please give $10 to help us keep exposing the poison of big money special interests for another decade When Chris Savage started blogging as Eclectablog a decade ago, Donald Trump hadn’t even filed his fourth bankruptcy yet. Chris wasn’t even sure he just wanted to blog about politics exclusively, hence “Eclectablog.” Fate had other plans. Sorry, you […]

Values matter and now is not the time to give in to the corporatists & kleptocrats who want to rule our country.

Values matter and now is not the time to give in to the corporatists & kleptocrats who want to rule our country.

I’m going to keep this short and sweet today. Eclectablog is not about all of us getting wealthy from our work here. We do it because we KNOW it’s important and we KNOW it’s making a difference; sometimes small, sometimes not so small. But, if we’re going to be true to our values as progressives, we believe that all of […]

United we stand. Divided we’re screwed.

United we stand. Divided we’re screwed.

I don’t need to tell YOU that the United States of America is in big trouble right now. Our country is now “led” by a kleptocratic authoritarian who is rapidly consolidating his power to benefit himself, his kids, and his business cronies. What was happening in slow motion only a few months ago has now turned into a rapid-fire string […]

Free speech for the not-so-free

Free speech for the not-so-free

There’s been heated debate as to whether the Constitution should protect what people call “hate speech”. The Supreme Court currently holds that the right to free speech is not to be limited in any way. The argument is that once the government begins banning certain forms of speech, it could find any justification to curtail this basic American freedom. The end of […]

“Do EVERYTHING You Can” – with special guest Sarah Kendzior

Sarah Kendzior must be getting tired of waiting for us to catch up to her. No commentator has more reliably predicted the future, which increasingly resembles the worst of our past, but with much better television. More than two years ago, Sarah told us Donald Trump could win. Then she connected Trump’s allegiance to Russia from 1987 to the present. […]
