We Hold This Truth to Be Self-Evident: It's Happening Before Our Very Eyes This president is no friend of democracy. He has declared himself above the law, preached insurrection by encouraging armed supporters to "liberate" states from the governance of duly elected officials, and told police not to be "too nice" while doing their job.

Trump's FCC Wants to Kill a Free and Open Internet Ending net neutrality will squelch competition, innovation and small internet startups, and limit freedom of expression, independent voices and diverse viewpoints. More than ever, Big Business, like Big Brother, will control what you read, see and hear and limit your own ability to speak up and share your opinions, your creativity, your life.

The Right Returns to the Religion Well Over the centuries, religion has cloaked hypocrisy -- and it's getting a test again as President Trump and Senate candidate Roy Moore hide behind the Religious Right's self-interested sanctimony, write Bill Moyers and Michael Winship.

The Trump-Russia Story Is Coming Together. Here's How to Make Sense of It The news is coming so fast and furious, from so many sources and in so many fragments, that it takes more than a scorecard to keep up with the Trump-Russia connection. It takes a timeline -- a "map," if you will, of where events and names and dates and deeds converge into a story that makes sense of the incredible scandal of the 2016 election and now of the Trump Administration.

Can a War of Words Become a World of War? The foreign policy discussion these days is just so impoverished, so repetitive, so trapped in a vocabulary -- "the indispensable nation, global leadership" -- that is at odds with our reality. And sadly, we've got a president who I think is completely out of touch. Sadly, this guy Trump just doesn't seem to have the right temperament or inclination to be educated.

The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: Robert Jay Lifton and Bill Moyers on "A Duty to Warn" Donald Trump lies repeatedly. We may come to see a president as liar as normal. He also makes bombastic statements about nuclear weapons, for instance, which can then be seen as somehow normal. In other words, his behavior as president, with all those who defend his behavior in the administration, becomes a norm. We have to contest it, because it is malignant normality.

LBJ Launches Medicare: "You Can't Treat Grandma This Way" Whether health care is a right may be debatable, but it assuredly fulfills a basic human need -- and without it, human beings without means will live and die suffering unduly. The only way for democracy to succeed is for enough people to take up the cause where and when they can, as so many did for Medicare and are doing now for our eroding social covenant.

NRA issues call for white supremacy and armed insurrection This is the vitriol that has been spewed like garbage since the days of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, blasted from lynch mobs and demagogues and fascistic factions of political parties that turn racial and religious minorities into grotesque caricatures, the better to demean and diminish and dominate.

Trump and the GOP in Sickness and Ill Health Who knows that Friday's debacle wasn't what Trump wanted all along? The man thrives on chaos, cruelty and circus, and the hated Obamacare lives on, namesake of his predecessor, the Kenyan interloper who rose to the presidency without even a passport. How better to satisfy Trump's insatiable need for spectacle than for him to fiddle as Obamacare crashes and burns, bringing pain and suffering to millions?

Republicans, Where's the Backbone? When survivors look back on a time of acute crisis, those who are remembered are not the spineless and opportunistic who hoped to snag a piece of the action. It is the men and women who rose in defiance and said this betrayal of what my country is supposed to be will not stand. Republicans, there is a name for those who take the moral high ground and fight back: heroes. When all is said and done, how will you be remembered?

We Cannot Wait for History to Judge. We Need the Truth About Trump and Russia Now. Why did the FBI seem to favor pursuing Hillary Clinton's emails over tracking down whatever could be learned about Russia's involvement in our election? why did FBI Director Comey fail to take action when he had in his hands the dossier ex-MI6 intelligence operative Christopher Steele had assembled on rumors that Russia possessed incriminating evidence on Trump's business dealings and private life?

There's No Debate The giant media conglomerates have turned the campaign and the upcoming debates into profit centers that reap a huge return from political trivia and titillation. A game show, if you will -- a farcical theater of make-believe rigged by the two parties and the networks to maintain their cartel of money and power.

Trump's Midnight in America The legacy of Hillary Clinton, Trump said, is "death, destruction and weakness." She proposes "mass amnesty, mass immigration, and mass lawlessness." As for Barack Obama, "The irresponsible rhetoric of our president, who has used the pulpit of the presidency to divide us by race and color, has made America a more dangerous environment for everyone."
