Trump’s attack on the free press is perfect practice for the 2018 midterms

Trump’s attack on the free press is perfect practice for the 2018 midterms

Let’s practice minimizing the Trump infection First, here’s what you need to do: That’s the word from brain scientist George Lakoff. Here’s why I’m joining in and I hope you will, too. Did you know the president is about to step up his attack the free press using all the authority the American people have invested in his office? If […]

Donnie wants to shut down the government and make America pay for it

Donnie wants to shut down the government and make America pay for it

This is how Democrats make it clear what we stand for Tammy Baldwin has every reason to be cautious. Republicans have already spent $3.1 million to unseat the first openly gay member of the U.S. Senate, “which is more than what all the other Democratic Senate incumbents on the ballot this year have faced combined,” according to the Huffington Post’s […]

The Call to Co-Liberate: Our Obligatory Opportunity

The Call to Co-Liberate: Our Obligatory Opportunity

We have an incredible opportunity in 2018 and beyond to do things differently, more humane.  My consistent call to all anti-racist organizers to pull away from the privilege narrative and to shift the language from ally to co-liberator is not merely a matter of semantics. It is an actual call to shift the culture of anti-racism organizing. It’s a call […]

Don’t believe the GOP tax scam is a crime against workers? Ask some Republicans!

Don’t believe the GOP tax scam is a crime against workers? Ask some Republicans!

The reviews are in! The GOP went too far to help corporations in its new tax bill, says Marco Rubio, who voted for the bill after “winning” concessions that deliver $0.00 to $6.25 a month to some of America’s poorest families. “If I were king for a day, this tax bill would have looked different. I thought we probably went […]

There’s no good way to sell a tax cut that gives 3,223 times more to the richest than the poorest

There’s no good way to sell a tax cut that gives 3,223 times more to the richest than the poorest

5 reasons Trump’s tax scam won’t improve the GOP’s prospects Twas the night before the night before Christmas when Donald Trump did what villains in action movies are supposed to do. He interrupted the story to explain his evil plan. “You all just got a lot richer,” the president told the crowd at Mar-A-Lago, his for-profit club where he sells […]

Wall Street may decide if Trump will get away with firing Mueller

Wall Street may decide if Trump will get away with firing Mueller

And those are the saddest words I’ve ever written I’ll say this until my face is as blue as California, or we’re in the middle of another Great Depression: There has never been a better argument for strict regulation of the financial sector than the way Wall Street has gone all in on Donald Trump. Of course, the endless streak […]

The GOP has to vote on Trump’s tax scam at least one more time. Here’s what you can do next.

The GOP has to vote on Trump’s tax scam at least one more time. Here’s what you can do next.

Call 202-224-3121 and backlash like you’ve never backlashed This isn’t over. You could say it hasn’t even started yet. Like you, I’ve been a bit dizzy with fury since Republicans passed the largest tax increase for workers in American history without reading it just a few hours after Trump’s first National Security Advisory and secret foreign agent pleaded guilty to […]

Trump’s tax scam is a massive bailout for his rich adult sons paid for by you and your kids

Trump’s tax scam is a massive bailout for his rich adult sons paid for by you and your kids

Trump wants you to be so mad at minorities that you’ll give him and his kids your retirement. One thing most Americans agree on besides “pie is also good for breakfast” is that things are “rigged.” Elizabeth Warren used the metaphor to explain how we got into the financial crisis that cost America 8 million jobs and trillions in wealth.

Why it’s dangerous to expect a Democratic wave

Why it’s dangerous to expect a Democratic wave

The most unpopular new president in the history of polling is about to pass the most unpopular piece of legislation in generations. But who knows what happens next? Is there a better revenge story than Virginia? A George W. Bush Republican runs a Donald Trump campaign and get crushed like a guy who picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. […]

This pod could be your America

This pod could be your America

Could podcasts play a similar role in a 2018 wave election that AM radio did in 1994? There is an almost inappropriate roar of a crowd. It could be welcoming an aging boy band or an Avengers Comic Con panel. Instead, four former White House staffers and the one former Bernie Sanders flack take the stage of The National theater […]

With a Key U.P. Victory, 2018 Looks Brighter for Michigan Democrats

With a Key U.P. Victory, 2018 Looks Brighter for Michigan Democrats

 If you’re looking for a window into 2018 in Michigan, the most important race took place last night in the western Upper Peninsula. On first blush, it looks like a pretty routine result in the special election for the 109th state House District: Democrat Sara Cambensy held a seat that’s been blue for more than a half-century. The district has a […]
