Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard caught fire from fellow Democrats for her cautious view of Trump's missile strike on Syria. But she is right to exercise prudence, and other Dems should follow her example.
Sean Spicer’s Holocaust comments are important, not just for their shock value – for their sheer, breathtaking, WTF-ness – but for what they tell us about the architecture of the modern Republican mind.
A democracy regulates corporations to protect people from concentrated power. If we let concentrated power make decisions for us, we end up getting dragged off of airplanes.
Trump just donated his pay to the Park Service. Well, that’s good. Great, really. But it’s not enough; an act of goodness directed at one child cannot feed an entire starving family.
Republican leaders in Congress are still gunning for our health care; their radical plans for our economy leave them no choice. During Resistance Recess, we'll let lawmakers know we'll keep fighting so everyone gets the care the need.
There's a story many tribal communities know: companies come in and promise jobs. Once the resource is consumed, the company disappears, leaving toxic waste. Once there were at least jobs cleaning up the mess. Now even these jobs are gone.
The deepest of our deep pockets are now pumping millions into immortality research. Should we be amused — or alarmed?
At any other time and under any other circumstances, a standing president turning a profit on a missile strike would be the scandal of the decade. With Donald Trump in the Oval Office, we call it Monday.
When it comes to the economy, Trump does not offer real job-creating policy, only propaganda of the moment, to be reversed as soon as it becomes convenient. What he has has actually done will undercut job and wage growth.

Jeb Bush dubbed Donald Trump the "chaos candidate," and this is the one claim he's lived up to. As president, Trump is swiftly shedding his most popular populist economic promises with the ease of a confidence man.

Arizona Sheriff Paul Penzone has finally started listening to his Latino constituents and announced he will close the "Tent City" open-air jail within six months. This is a victory for grassroots organizers and all who believe in justice.
Republicans have done violence to Senate traditions for years. The nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court is the fruit of their disrespect for tradition. It's time for all Democrats to say no.
Billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch agressively fund "dark-money" campaigns for far-right causes through sham grassroots organizations, and contribute to eighty percent of the far-right "Freedom Caucus" members in Congress.
New York is one of only two states that charges sixteen and seventeen year olds as adults in criminal courts. This puts tens of thousands of teenagers in adult prisons. Our governor and legislature must act now to end this archaic practice.
NAFTA has become a one-word symbol for all of our country's trade problems, especially in places like Michigan, which saw auto and auto-parts manufacturing jobs move to Mexico.
A new White House executive order lets corporate execs violate worker-protection laws on wages, hours, and safety and still qualify for federal contracts. No strings attached.
Equal Pay Day is here. That's the date when women working full-time, year-round catch up to men’s earnings from the previous year. If you're a working woman, or a man who cares about the women in your life, this matters to you.
Martin Luther King's call for a radical revolution of values rings as true today as it did fifty years ago at Riverside Church, when he challenged us to confront racism, materialism and militarism.

Republicans don't want to prevent bank crimes. Instead, they want to dismantle the agency that plays a critical role in bringing these crimes to light. Now, some Democrats may be willing to help them.
Neil Gorsuch's court opinions reveal a pattern of antipathy toward students with disabilities. We must oppose his approval to the Supreme Court, as it would cement neglect for the vulnerable in legal precedent for generations to come.
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.
Say anything - literally anything - to sway working-class voters. Get elected, then loot the country. Hey, it worked for this guy.
A great old Calvin & Hobbes comic strip tells us a lot about the current budget debate: it's the mattress fire of budget proposals. It’s not going anywhere, and it wasn’t designed to. So, what’s next?

Michael Piwowar, acting chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission, wants to roll back SEC enforcement of rules on transparency at public companies. Now Senate Banking Committee members say he may have gone too far.
Words fail to give full measure to Roger Wilkins, who left us just after his 85th birthday. A great champion of social justice, proud father and good friend, he will be missed.
President Trump's sweeping executive order reverses years of efforts to promote clean air, water and energy. His claim? Environmental protections are bad for jobs. His solution? Windfalls to industry that threaten vulnerable communities.
The fact that Judge Gorsuch, born and bred a one-percenter, decided the "frozen trucker" case and others for moneyed interests without a thought for people injured on the job, disqualifies him for a seat on the nation’s highest court.
“Fair pay and safe workplaces” sums it up. The rule, which Trump and the Republicans saw fit to repeal, stated that our government should contract with companies that have “a satisfactory record of integrity and business ethics.”
The anger public school advocates have for Trump's proposed education budget cuts is well-deserved. But the target for their anger should not be just the extent of the cuts but also how the cuts are being pitched to the public.

Trump has been filling his administration with swamp creatures, and Wall Street bailout lawyer Jay Clayton, Trump's pick to head the SEC, appears to be one more alligator.
Neil Gorsuch is not the first in his family to seek high office. As a teen he watched his mother, former EPA chief Anne Gorsuch, as she oversaw the mishandling of funds and withheld evidence from Congress. He later condoned these actions.
Candidate Trump swore fixing roads and bridges would be at the top of his list of spending priorities. Unfortunately, in his "America First" budget blueprint, the rubber doesn't meet the road.
Fending off the health care repeal is a huge win that will save lives. The battle brought out seasoned and new activists, who can see the fruit of their persistence, and are now energized in a new way for the fight ahead.
