Donald Trump will definitely lose the popular vote by millions — and he could still definitely be ‘elected’ president

Donald Trump will definitely lose the popular vote by millions — and he could still definitely be ‘elected’ president

And the only thing you should be overwhelmed by is how much you can do to stop him This is your brain on polls. Just hours before Democrats swept into voting booths to gain full control of recent swing-state Virginia and the Kentucky governorship, polls from The New York Times Upshot and Siena College, which were quite accurate in 2018, […]

More on GOP Senate candidate John James’ ties Ukrainian criminal Lev Parnas — there was a meeting

More on GOP Senate candidate John James’ ties Ukrainian criminal Lev Parnas — there was a meeting

Late last month, the Michigan Democratic Party revealed photos of Michigan Republican Senate candidate John James with indicted Ukrainian criminal Lev Parnas, who was doing what amounted to a whistlestop tour around the country with human-Gollum Rudy Giuliani. It was odd to see Parnas with various candidates around the country and it began to raise questions about how much involvement […]

Betsy DeVos owes taxpayers at least $100,000. And we owe her our contempt.

Betsy DeVos owes taxpayers at least $100,000. And we owe her our contempt.

Even a Judge and a Republican cannot help be disgusted by DeVos’ passion for loading up Americans with unpayable debt Last Thursday should be remembered as the day the news caught up with the remorseless wretchedness of Betsy DeVos. We can now say with certainty that Donald Trump’s Secretary of Education is illegally ripping off Americans who’ve already been illegally […]

The Trump Administration has no plan for the 21 million they hope to uninsure — but they do have a plan to gut Medicare

The Trump Administration has no plan for the 21 million they hope to uninsure — but they do have a plan to gut Medicare

Massive payoffs for the wealthy. Massive risks for everyone else. Hell for the most vulnerable. That’s the plan. Given the unrelenting string of horrors and high crimes coming out of the White House, you can be excused for missing two of the biggest stories of the year, with life-or-death consequences that could last the rest of our lives. As you […]

Democrats shouldn’t help the press pretend they care about ‘paying’ for things

Figure out who paid for the wall and who pays for tax cuts for the rich and then get back to us The press — and a few of her opponents — think they have Elizabeth Warren cornered. She refuses to buy into their urge to get a soundbite that plays into a right-wing narrative that reducing people’s health care […]

What’s keeping Trump’s base in place? Strategic Racism

What’s keeping Trump’s base in place? Strategic Racism

The biggest mistake we can make is forgetting what Trump is good at Despite his relentless efforts to screw anyone who isn’t a billionaire and betray the nation in general, Donald Trump’s appeal to his shrinking party remains durable and inexplicable to many rational minds. Still, you can’t help but wonder where it comes from and how to undermine it […]

Call Trump’s attacks on Biden, and any Democratic candidate, what they are — birtherism

Call Trump’s attacks on Biden, and any Democratic candidate, what they are — birtherism

Trump knows propaganda works, which is why sticking together is our only hope Donald Trump’s attacks are all the same attack. His political career was born out of the baseless, racist assertion that Barack Obama couldn’t possibly be a citizen. And Democrats will only defuse his conspiratorial smear-mongering if they stand together and call out all his attacks for what […]

We can’t let Facebook help elect Trump again

We can’t let Facebook help elect Trump again

Democrats need to recognize Trump isn’t the only corrosive threat to democracy they face. Demand Mark Zuckerberg’s resignation today. This week audio leaked to The Verge revealed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckergberg’s fears of an Elizabeth Warren presidency: “You have someone like Elizabeth Warren who thinks that the right answer is to break up the companies … if she gets elected […]

Rep. Elissa Slotkin gets GOP MI-08 challenger who “would probably move” into the district if she’s elected. Probably.

Rep. Elissa Slotkin gets GOP MI-08 challenger who “would probably move” into the district if she’s elected. Probably.

Elissa Slotkin’s victory in 2018 to become the member of Congress of Michigan’s 8th District was probably the poster child for the ascendancy of Democratic voters after the election of Donald Trump. She defeated the Chief Pocket Lint Wrangler for billionaire Matty Moroun, Republican Mike Bishop, in a quite red district Bishop should easily have won. It took time, but […]
