While Trump lays down multiple smoke screens to shield them, it’s business as usual for anti-environment, anti-worker, corporatist Republicans

The Great Orange Smoke Screen The front pages of any major news outlet, online or otherwise, are full of news of Donald Trump and the corrupt, inept-yet-frighteningly-effective cabal of criminals that make up his administration and circle of advisors. Nearly 40 people tied to him, his administration, his inauguration, and his campaign have been indicted and more are sure to […]

How Trump’s Nazi-like smearing of immigrants gets normalized

If an airline treated one dog the way this administration treated thousands of kids, it would be wiped off the face of the earth.

Trump and his Republican enablers, like Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, are beginning to realize that they have approximately zero chance of ever winning another election–if held and run fairly–on the issues, so they are scrambling frantically to redefine these issues in a clumsy and desperate effort to confuse and distract voters. Here are just 2 examples; one from national […]

The nation mourns the passing of John Dingell, a political giant with a heart the size of the Great Lakes

The nation mourns the passing of John Dingell, a political giant with a heart the size of the Great Lakes

I am indescribably sad this morning. Although those of us who interacted with John Dingell on a somewhat regular basis knew this day would come, his passing has still taken my breath away. It goes without saying that John Dingell, the longest-serving member of the United States House of Representatives in American history, was a political giant. He played a […]

The State of the Union is a racist criminal delivered the State of the Union

The State of the Union is a racist criminal delivered the State of the Union

We underestimate the danger of acting as if these are normal times. The undocumented immigrants Donald Trump uses as a convenient distraction as he cuts his kids’ taxes and sells out America to the wealthiest polluter often see their lives ruined.

Mr. Booker has been running for president seemingly forever. He’s been planning for this moment since he was a kid, and everything he’s ever done has been designed for just this moment. […]

The new women leaders of Michigan are showing Democrats EVERYWHERE how to get down to the business of governing

In 2018, over half of the Democratic candidates for the state legislature and Congress who won their primary and went on to the general election in Michigan were women.
