Donald Trump Jr. Just Admitted He Committed a Crime

Donald Trump Jr. told Congress he, Manafort, and Kushner met with Russians hoping to obtain illegal intel on Hillary Clinton, but failed. Sorry, Don: taking a meeting to obtain illegal intel - even if you fail - still counts as conspiracy.

Why ‘Russian Adoptions’ Really Means ‘Russia Sanctions’

Let's be clear here. Whenever Trump, his family, administration and campaign, or Putin and Kremlin envoys, bring up “Russian adoptions,” they're really talking about removing U.S. sanctions on Russia. Here's why, and why this matters.

After Bannon, Do Hawks Rule the Roost?

For all the harm Steve Bannon has done, he was right to point out that there’s no military solution to North Korea. After Bannon, one has to wonder who will dare suggest anything other than military solutions to Trump.

Kris Kobach: Trump’s Darth Vader of Voter Suppression

Voter suppression is a major threat to American democracy. Even if progressives massively organize for 2018 and 2020, Republicans can still win if they succeed in suppressing the votes of minorities and young people nationwide.

Repeal John McCain’s Government-Sponsored Health Care

In an act of startling hypocrisy, Sen. John McCain returned from his sickbed to cast the deciding vote to proceed with debate to repeal health care, even as he receives the government-financed care members of Congress take for granted.

Kris Kobach Can Irreparably Harm Our Democracy

By purging minorities from voting rolls, Kris Kobach, Co-Chair of Trump's "Election Integrity" Commission, may have done more to steal the election for Republicans than Comey and Putin combined. Now he's getting ready to do it again.

In France, Neoliberalism Defeats Neofascism… For Now

Neoliberal Emmanuel Macron has defeated neofascist Marine Le Pen to become France's next president. That's good news, but neoliberalism is part of what has fueled Le Pen's rise, so it's too early to break out the Beaujolais.

Make Every Democratic Senator Filibuster Gorsuch

It's time to use every tactic in the book - mass demonstrations, petitions, calls, and emails - to make clear that every Democrat who doesn't filibuster Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court nomination will face a primary challenge.

Blocking Gorsuch Matters Now More Than Ever

We must force wavering Democratic senators to filibuster Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court, by showing up at their offices to let them know they will face primary challenges if they let him pass.

We Must Filibuster Gorsuch’s Federalist Society Agenda

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch shows every sign he supports the Federalist Society's pro-corporate, far-right agenda. Democratic senators must filibuster his nomination, or face primary challenges in their home states.

The Resistance and the Democratic Party

Resistance to Donald Trump needs an outside/inside strategy. Its strength comes from the streets. But it must also work to transform the Democratic Party into a people’s party, and not one beholden to the corporate donor class.

What Did Trump Know About Flynn and When Did He Know It?

If Michael T. Flynn informed Trump about his multiple conversations with the Russian ambassador about rolling back Obama’s sanctions to punish Russia for interfering in the U.S. presidential election, it’s an impeachable offense. For Trump.

Three Reasons John Lewis is Right That Trump Is Illegitimate

Donald Trump is not only morally an illegitimate President, but actually an illegitimate President who would not have won, but for (1) voter suppression, (2) Comey’s letter, and (3) Russian intervention aimed at helping Trump.

Resisting the Trumpublican Shock Doctrine Blitzkrieg

Trumpublicans are intent on manipulating the shock of Donald Trump's victory to roll back much of the New Deal and Great Society. It’s incumbent upon everyone who cares about democracy and the common good to fight back.

Don’t Underestimate The Damage Stephen Bannon Can Do

Steve Bannon is racist, misogynist and whip smart. With the authority of the Federal government, Bannon will be able to carry out witch hunts against perceived political enemies and to empower the most hateful elements in society.

Resist! Reorganize! Revitalize!

Donald Trump is the legally elected president-elect. But he needs to be resisted from day one with all the tools of an aroused democratic citizenry. He is not entitled to a honeymoon.

Time for Hillary to Pivot to Full Metal Progressive Policy

Clinton can win ugly by playing Pre-Vent defense and relying on Trump’s self-destruction. Or she can use the remaining three weeks of the campaign to go full metal progressive policy and lay out a positive populist governing agenda.

Republicans Leaders Who Don’t Unendorse Trump Face Disgrace

After Trump's litany of irresponsible statements, including questioning the legitimacy of the election and considering using nuclear weapons, if Republican leaders don't unendorse Trump, their names will go down in infamy.

A Clinton Campaign In Big Trouble Must Make An Audacious Choice

Democrats who chose Hillary Clinton because she was more electable may have picked the least electable Democrat and placed the country in danger of a proto-fascist President Trump. To recover, Clinton needs audaciousness, not caution.
