Monday, August 29, 2022 (1 comments) SHARE More Sharing Steps Left for Electing Progressives and Defeating Republicans in the Midterms Almost all the primaries are behind us now, and the current outlook is still grim for the midterm elections this fall. The semi-fascist Republican Party is very well-positioned to win control of the House and has a decent chance of also gaining a majority in the Senate. But demagoguery is not destiny. Progressives can help steer the future in a better direction over the next two months.

Thursday, May 19, 2022 (2 comments) SHARE More Sharing Looks Like Another 'Bad Blue' Just Bit the Dust Three years ago, we helped write a report for targeting 15 corporate Democrats in Congress who deserved to be "primaried." We called the report "Bad Blues." A common reaction back then was that those establishment pols were too strong and entrenched to be defeated. On Tuesday, yet another "Bad Blue" apparently went down to defeat
Tuesday, March 1, 2022 SHARE More Sharing Major U.S. Media Oppose Military Aggression . . . Unless the United States Is Doing It as we rally to support Ukrainian civilians against great-power aggression from Russia, let's do so with the understanding that imperialism should always be opposed, that all civilian victims of wars and violent coups are worthy whether Iraqi or Honduran or Ukrainian -- and that all criminals who violate international law should be held accountable whether they're based in Moscow or Washington, D.C.

Tuesday, September 14, 2021 (3 comments) SHARE More Sharing To Avert Failure, Biden Should Listen to the "Radicals" - Not Corporate Media If President Biden fails to act boldly and quickly in improving the material lives of poor, working-class and struggling middle-class Americans of all colors, the right wing is likely to come storming back into power through the 2022 and 2024 elections. With Biden's popularity lagging, Will he side with the "radicals" or with the go-slow, yes/no, status-quo corporate media?

Monday, May 10, 2021 SHARE More Sharing Pramila Jayapal Misses Mark with "A" Grade for Biden It's the job of progressive advocates and activists to tell inconvenient truths, without sugarcoating or cheerleading. Progressives need to soberly assess everything -- good, bad and mixed.
Derek Chauvin guilty of murdering George Floyd The jury in the trial of Derek Chauvin convicted the former Minneapolis police officer of murder in the death of George Floyd., From YouTubeVideos
Wednesday, April 28, 2021 SHARE More Sharing Media Evasions on Racism and the Role of Derek Chauvin Chauvin has played a useful role for corporate media - a rare villain who could be identified and named, a symbol of deadly racism in news outlets that are structured to refrain from identifying the economic forces responsible for far more hardship and death in communities of color than Chauvin could ever inflict.

Sunday, April 4, 2021 (1 comments) SHARE More Sharing The Liberal Contempt for Martin Luther King's Final Year The standard liberal canon waxes fondly nostalgic about King's "I have a dream" speech in 1963 and his efforts against racial segregation. But in memory lane, the Dr. King who lived his last year is persona non grata.
Rahm Emanuel, Pointing, With Chicago Flag in Background, From CreativeCommonsPhoto
Thursday, March 11, 2021 (2 comments) SHARE More Sharing Rahm Emanuel Is in the Running for a Top Ambassador Post. The Prospect Is Appalling Rahm Emanuel has never been associated with the word "diplomatic," but news reports say that President Biden is seriously considering him for a top position as U.S. ambassador to Japan or China. Naming Emanuel to such a post would be an affront to many of the constituencies that got Biden elected. The saga of Emanuel's three decades in politics is an epic tale of methodical contempt for progressive values.

Wednesday, June 17, 2020 (4 comments) SHARE More Sharing Let Us Name the System: "Racial Capitalism" It's oddly disconcerting nowadays to hear regular mentions of the phrase "systemic racism" from mainstream journalists who adamantly refuse to criticize (or even name) the system that U.S. racism is entrenched in. That system is "CAPITALISM." Or as historian Khalil Gibran Muhammad calls it: "racial capitalism."
