A Michigan conservative Republican makes the case for Donald Trump’s impeachment

The simple case for impeachment (that doesn’t include Emolument Clause violations, conflicts of interest, illegal family separations, and various other high crimes and misdemeanors). Some have pointed out that the case for impeachment has not be clearly made. These people are probably busy following Democrats in Congress and not Republican Rep. Justin Amash. It saddens me that some conservatives are […]

When you wake up one day and realize you’ve been getting your ass kicked for 40 years

When you wake up one day and realize you’ve been getting your ass kicked for 40 years

Abortion is being criminalized in state after state, punishing poor people and people of color. We have no attorney general. Prosecutions of Trump’s political opponents seem inevitable. War crimes are […]

Trump knows he needs social media Nazi-friendly in order to win in 2020

If you can ban Nazis, you can ban Republicans If you want to know what the gravestone of American democracy might say, consider this recent Vice headline: Why Won’t Twitter Treat White Supremacy Like ISIS? Because It Would Mean Banning Some Republican Politicians Too. Possibly in response to this embarrassing admission and the obvious failure to successfully delouse one of […]

The people defending Trump defending neo-Nazis are also defending neo-Nazis

The people defending Trump defending neo-Nazis are also defending neo-Nazis

Trump did his best to wink at neo-Nazis let him know he values their support. And his defenders are doing the same.

This is how Democrats could win the future — pretty cheaply

This is how Democrats could win the future — pretty cheaply

Michigan can be the model for turning purple and then red states back into functioning democracies. Your support of Eclectablog can help. Rep. Fred Upton is on the run. In 2017, he single-handedly kept Obamacare repeal alive with the “Upton Amendment” that made House Republicans more comfortable with gutting protections for Americans with pre-exisiting conditions. In 2019, he’s playing up […]

Polls and shame aren’t enough. You have to make the case that Medicare for All is better than employer insurance.

Polls and shame aren’t enough. You have to make the case that Medicare for All is better than employer insurance.

Most Americans are happy with their current insurance, but they may have no idea what it is costing them Let me start with some truisms. America cannot go on being the only rich country on earth that lets tens of millions of its citizens go without insurance or enough health insurance. We cannot go on spending more on health care […]

Why Trump/Russia skeptics want Trump to get away with it

“Russiagate” skeptics have been proven wrong, but nothing will quench their need to blame Democrats for what Republicans do The most dangerous psychosis in American politics is the one that allows Republicans to justify anything that helps Republicans win. And this political nihilism doesn’t just belong to Mitch McConnell. It allows hacks like Steven Moore and Paul Ryan justify doing […]

Mitch McConnell is terrified of the Michigan plan for rebuilding democracy

By prioritizing the “For the People Act,” Democrats show they get that voting rights are even more popular than legal weed. Mitch McConnell knows how he got away with it.

This week we learned that for the second time America was spared from a massive attack by a Trump-enthralled wannabe domestic terrorist. Trump, who tweets responses to even rumors of terror attacks in London in minutes, waited two full days […]
