Foreign interference the new norm?

Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton has recently eliminated the cybersecurity coordinator position within the National Security Council. This was one of the top positions within the organization and Bolton’s reasoning was that the lower level officials would be more than capable of handling cybersecurity issues. In fact, “Mr. Bolton has talked about ‘streamlining’ the N.S.C., and so far that appears […]

Trump holds a “Pledge to Workers” event with no workers and LOTS of anti-labor shills and corporate lobbyists

In 2016, Donald Trump got around 37% of the vote from members of labor unions. He actually out-performed Mitt Romney in this regard suggesting that his faux pro-worker rhetoric hit its mark. Since then, he’s continued his attempts to appease union workers and convince them — despite a preponderance of evidence to the contrary — that he is on THEIR […]

Corporations want you to work even when you’re sick. They’re so desperate that they’re starting to panic.

Corporations want you to work even when you’re sick. They’re so desperate that they’re starting to panic.

In Michigan, you have no right to paid time off if you or a loved one is sick. The result is that many of us go to work sick because we simply can’t afford NOT to. The impacts of this, which we highlighted in a four-part series HERE, are devastating to workers and their families. Not only that, it all […]

Making it personal: Dems in Michigan’s 9th Congressional District running effective ads tying their fight to healthcare

Making it personal: Dems in Michigan’s 9th Congressional District running effective ads tying their fight to healthcare

There are three primary issues that Democrats should be beating Republicans over the head with this election season: the lack of action by Republicans on Trump’s corruption and kleptocracy, Republicans giving a massive tax break to the super wealthy at the expense of pretty much all the rest of us, and Republican efforts to deny poor Americans access to affordable […]

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.

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!

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 […]
