Trumping the WTO for Fair Trade

Stop Trump’s Privatization Agenda

Key public services may end up in private hands under President Trump. Privatizers claim this transfer of public wealth "saves money." But it impoverishes and hurts people, which costs taxpayers more than it saves.

Don’t Be Fooled by Trump’s Latest Reality Show

Trump can play a president on television, but that's about it. He promises the moon with a straight face, while peddling the same old conservative snake oil in new bottles.

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.

Trading Rules for Workers

Automation, regulation, illegal immigration and lack of education didn't kill U.S. manufacturing jobs. Globalization did. A series of bad trade deals cost millions of jobs, and must be replaced with worker-centered, fair trade pacts.

Trump’s Attack on Trans Kids Is an Attack on Everyone

Policing America’s Plutocracy

The White House wants to see local cops get tough with poor people who break federal laws on immigration. Why not crack down on the rich who scoff at federal tax laws?

CPAC and the DNC: A Party Is Not a Movement

Perez isn't the problem; power is. The Democratic Party won't change until it's confronted with a movement determined to change it, and starts to tell a story that reflects the lives of ordinary people.

Trump and DeVos Hatch a Deceptive Scheme to Push School Vouchers

A school voucher program is on President Trump's’s agenda — but it’s not being called that. There are reasons for this deception, and it’s important for progressives to understand Trump's scheme before the public debate starts.

Trump Tax Con: Tax Cuts Steal Democracy

The Trump administration, as have all Republican administrations, is promoting tax cuts for the rich, saying they will “create growth.” Tax cuts actually force cuts in the things our government does to make our lives better.

Wall Street Sodbusters

Big-money speculators are buying up farms, charging tenants to farm it and boxing young, real farmers out of the market. Of course, the Wall Street plowboys don’t soil their own soft hands by actually farming.

A New Rationalization for Riches

Right-wingers are celebrating a depressing new history of those rare moments when wealth became better distributed as activists are exploring encouraging pathways to a New Economy that sustains our planet and fosters equality.

We Need a Sea Change to See Change

This is nothing more than a basket of gleeful, surgical giveaways to big-dollar Republican donors. We need to expose, at every opportunity, that we’re watching. We need to make it clear that we will remember this in 2018 and 2020.

The People Fired Puzder

It’s no accident that Puzder bowed out just two days after National Security Adviser Gen. Mike T. Flynn’s resignation. The Trump administration’s confidence is shaken. GOP unanimity is broken.

Resisting Trump Is Not Enough

Trump is in the White House in large part because of the establishment’s failures over the past decades. Progressives need to advance a concrete agenda, and that means taking on Democrats-in-Name-Only.
