Stop the “Kavanaugh Coup” By Any Means Necessary

The reason Republicans want to rush Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation through, despite credible charges of sexual harassment and perjury, is that his confirmation would complete a slow-moving coup by their oligarchic donor class to turn American law back a hundred years.

It’s Time for a Mass Movement to Impeach Trump

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and […]

Treasonous! Impeach! Time’s Up!

As former CIA Director John Brennan just stated, “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short […]

Yes, Collusion

A large proportion of Donald Trump’s tweets and speeches vehemently claim there was “no collusion” between Trump and/or his campaign and agents of the Russian government. (The Washington Post counts […]

Will Trump ‘Wag The Dog’ to Gain Support?

It’s starting to look like a credible scenario that an increasingly unhinged Donald Trump might start a war, fire special counsel Mueller, and then argue, along with his Republican allies, […]

Gun Control Legislation Is Constitutional

It’s time to stop letting the NRA scare the burgeoning  gun safety movement led by courageous student survivors  into accepting small-bore reforms out of a mistaken belief that stronger gun safety laws would be unconstitutional.

Kim Jung Un’s Sister Crushes Pence for Gold in Korea Peace Olympics

If peace  diplomacy were an Olympic sport, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s sister, Kim Yo-jong, won the Gold Medal hands down, while Vice President Mike Pence crashed and burned. That's a good thing for the possibility of world peace.

Norway to Trump: Keep Your Gold-Plated Sh*t Hole

I do wish more Norwegians would emigrate to America, because they could teach us a thing or two about how to run a decent society, the happiest and most prosperous in the world. How do they pay for all this happiness? With higher taxes.

Bending the Arc of History Towards Justice in Alabama

In his victory speech, Doug Jones recalled Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous words: “The arc of history is long, but it bends towards justice.” And today in Alabama it did, thanks to the voters who came together to reject hate.

Can Democrats Do More to Stop the GOP Tax Cuts?

Congressional Democrats' resistance to the tax bill has been tepid, compared to their full-court press against repeal of the ACA. Have Democratic leaders been sending smoke signals to the donor class that they can have their tax cuts?

Carter’s Bold Bid to Make Peace Between Trump and North Korea

Former President Jimmy Carter  has stepped up to point a direction out of the looming crisis with North Korea. Trump should take Carter up on his offer to start negotiations of a permanent peace. It just might work; here's how.

Trump Drowns the ‘Forgotten Men and Women’ in Swamp Water

Hurricane victims in Puerto Rico are getting sick from drinking polluted water. And Trump’s lone-wolf attack on health insurance markets will now make care unaffordable to millions of the working-class men and women he promised to protect.

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.

If Republicans Repeal Obamacare, Will Medicare For All Come Sooner?

Lindsey Graham and other GOP leaders say a repeal of Obamacare will kill Medicare for All forever. Yet others believe this last-ditch bid to tear apart our health system, even if it passes, may bring Medicare For All closer to reality.

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.

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.
