The GOP wants to steal the November election — and they’ll restart the COVID-19 pandemic to do it

And here’s the plan Democrats must embrace to stop them Even if no one dies from the GOP unnecessarily sending Wisconsinites to the polls on Tuesday, it was still a crime against humanity.

This may be the worst thing Trump has said since the COVID-19 outbreak began

It’s not just that he’s doing everything wrong; it’s that he knows he is.

There was this president’s constant campaign to downplay the effect of the virus: 19 times Trump downplayed the coronavirushttps://t.co/fswjvFlRoS pic.twitter.com/ucwyEvoVCg — The […]

Money still dominates our politics — even if it didn’t buy Bloomberg the presidency

Blowing enough to buy 20 swing state houses in 90 days shows how cheap it is for billionaires to buy power Whoever convinced Michael Bloomberg to show up at the Democratic debates owes the former mayor a half a billion dollars — and America owes that person a huge debt of gratitude. The campaign is dead and the “rot of […]

Trump spent three years weakening our immune system, then came the coronavirus

Pandemics don’t care about Trump’s feelings Many people have noted that Donald Trump’s luckiest break as president was not succeeding in repealing the Affordable Care Act. Barack Obama suffered the political consequences of expanding insurance coverage to 20 million Americans. Taking it away from a comparable number would almost certainly mean political consequences even worse than the biggest House midterm […]

Everybody seems to be remarkably cool with the end of the rule of law in America

Everybody seems to be remarkably cool with the end of the rule of law in America

What’s the hurry? What if any pretense of rule of law in America were rapidly eroding and everyone was cool with it? That’s seems to what’s going on.

WARNING: Bloomberg may have the primary gamed out better than anyone

WARNING: Bloomberg may have the primary gamed out better than anyone

But I have to note one guess I may have gotten right. “Beto isn’t your problem, Bloomberg is” — was my late 2018 case that fans of Bernie Sanders fixated on the candidacy of a former member of […]

What Gretchen Whitmer has in common with Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders

And what they can all learn from each other There’s a pretty obvious reason why our governor Gretchen Whitmer has been chosen to deliver the response to the 2020 State of Union address that will occur if something goes terribly wrong and the Senate doesn’t remove Donald Trump from office: Whitmer was elected Governor of Michigan by 406,659 votes or […]

Trump gave the big banks a bailout that may cost us more the financial crisis bank bailout

As JPMorgan Chase, the country’s largest bank, reported record profits You may not remember this, but bailing out the biggest banks in America used to be controversial.
