Don’t think the GOP can lose the popular vote by 10% and keep the House? That’s what happened in Virginia.

Don’t think the GOP can lose the popular vote by 10% and keep the House? That’s what happened in Virginia.

5 reasons it’s going to be much harder to win the House than you can imagine How would you act if you knew this could be the free last election you could ever vote in?

BREAKING: Diverticulitis almost takes down Eclectablog

If you can’t imagine progressive politics without Chris Savage and Eclectablog, we need your support It was the worst Twitter direct message I’ve ever gotten — even worse than the one that convinced me Trump had won Florida. “I have been sick for a few days and this morning I went to the dr with severe abdominal pain,” @Eclectablog AKA […]

When you’re fighting to make the world a better place, it’s good to know you’re not alone

When I woke up Saturday morning, it was Day Six of our 4th Quarter fundraiser here at Eclectablog and we hadn’t received a single donation. It was pretty demoralizing. We’ve had slow weeks in the past but nothing quite this slow. I generally hope to get enough in donations each quarter to pay for at least two months. Our annual […]

Trump is failing, but we aren’t winning yet

Trump is failing, but we aren’t winning yet

Magnify your resistance by supporting grassroots resistance like Eclectablog We all wake up the same way, dreading Trump’s morning ego ablutions on Twitter. Then as the coffee, sunlight or some other controlled substance kicks in we begin to wonder what he’s distracting us from today. Is it his rank looting of taxpayers through the tax code? His abandonment of millions […]

Important update about the 2017 Eclectablog fundraiser & live podcast recording wsg Debbie & John Dingell

It’s been a bit of a rough go with the fundraiser this year. As of last night we were down $5,000 in sponsorships from last year. And I was hoping to be significantly UP from last year so that we could upgrade our podcast equipment. But, as I told one of our sponsors, our opponents are legion and highly effective. […]

An Easter PHOTOdiary: Peeps & global warming

An Easter PHOTOdiary: Peeps & global warming

It’s Easter Sunday and that can mean only one thing: it’s time for the annual repost of our Peeps® post. However, before we get into that, today is the last day of our first quarter fundraiser. It’s been an rather quiet week on the fundraiser front, something that is a little dismaying. Our costs here at Eclectablog increase each year […]

Hope is cute, words are nice, action is required: The many facets of resistance and getting in the way

Hope is cute, words are nice, action is required: The many facets of resistance and getting in the way

I’ll be blunt: we live in a time where the moral imperative is that we resist the decline of our country toward fascism with everything we have. It’s no longer enough to talk about politics over beers or coffee with our pals. It’s no longer enough to post fun memes on Facebook. The time is at hand for actual action. […]

The cost of independent journalism vs. the costs of living WITHOUT independent journalism

During a time when commentators around the country were justifying and excusing the anti-democratic power grab known as […]
