What the Bernie Sanders 2020 Campaign Means for Progressives In the obvious contrasts with Harris and in the less obvious yet significant contrasts with Warren on matters of economic justice as well as on foreign policy, Bernie Sanders represents a different approach to the root causes of -- and possible solutions to -- extreme economic inequality, systemic injustice and a dire shortage of democracy. Harris's tweak and Warren's regulate options are not enough to end corporate rule

How Corporate Democrats Aim to Stifle Criticism Well-informed public discussion is a major hazard for Democratic Party elites now eager to prevent Bernie Sanders from winning the 2020 presidential nomination. A clear focus on key issues can bring to light the big political differences between Sanders and the party's corporate-friendly candidates. One way to muddy the waters is to condemn people for pointing out facts that make those candidates look bad.

Beto, We Hardly Knew Ye Progressives are apt to be enthusiastic about O'Rourke -- if they don't know much about his record.

What It Means That Hillary Clinton Might Run for President in 2020 Whether or not Hillary Clinton runs for president again, Clintonism is a political blight with huge staying power. It can be overcome only if and when people at the grassroots effectively insist on moving the Democratic Party in a genuinely progressive direction.

The "Pelosi Problem" Runs Deep Nancy Pelosi will probably be the next House speaker, a prospect that fills most alert progressives with disquiet, if not dread. But instead of fixating on her as a villain, progressives should recognize the long-standing House Democratic leader as a symptom of a calcified party hierarchy that has worn out its grassroots welcome and is beginning to lose its grip.

Tangled in the Garden of Good and Evil A French television program tackles the tough questions of compliance and resistance. The most widely acclaimed TV series ever about the Nazi occupation of France is a relentless epic with little use for the familiar images of craven collaborators and selfless resisters.

Victory in Superdelegates Fight Means: Grassroots Can Win Officials rarely decide to reduce their own power. And the Democratic Party has not made such a historic reform to its presidential nominating process in decades. So, how did it happen?

GOP and Corporate Dems Gain When Democrats Run Against Putin Hammering on Russia is a losing strategy for progressives as most Americans care about economic issues and it is the Republicans and corporate Democrats who stand to gain, argues Norman Solomon.

Climb Down From the Summit of Hostile Propaganda Public reactions to an open letter from academics, journalists and politicians asking for co-existence with Russia show many Americans don't buy the media's bellicose spin, as Norman Solomon explains.

Democratic Elite Scrambles to Respond to Ocasio-Cortez Stunned by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's victory, the Democratic Party establishment is trying to contain the rebellion challenging its class interests and may try to stem the tide with a compromise on super-delegates, as Norman Solomon reports.

Polls Show Being Anti-Trump Isn't Enough to Beat GOP Instead of addressing demands for social progress, such as single-payer insurance, Democratic leaders find it much easier and more comfortable to denounce Trump. But it's not working, as Norman Solomon explains.

It's the End of the World, and I Feel Terrible All the talk about climate change and hardly a word about the ultimate climate disaster -- nuclear winter -- in which case, forget about agriculture. Or human life on earth. All it would take is a nuclear war with Russia. The frenzy of hostility toward Russia made negotiations less and less likely.

As Midterms Near, New Polls Show Democrats Stalling The Democratic Party is still dominated by elected officials and power brokers who appear to be deeply worried that a future progressive upsurge of political engagement could loosen -- or even end -- their corporate-funded grip on the party. Methodical grassroots organizing will be necessary -- to bring down the GOP's deranged leadership.

New Polls Show Anti-Trump Isn't Enough to Beat GOP With six months to go before the midterm election, new national polls are showing that the Democratic Party's much-touted momentum to gain control of the House has stalled out. The latest numbers tell us a lot about the limits of denouncing Donald Trump without offering much more than a return to the old status quo.

The Ghosts of "New Democrats" Are Haunting Us Both Clinton and Obama were youthful and articulate, breaths of fresh air after repugnant Republican predecessors in the White House. Yet our two most recent Democratic presidents were down with corporate power -- not as far down as the GOP, but nevertheless in the thrall of Wall Street and the big banks.

Why the DNC Is Fighting WikiLeaks and Not Wall Street Rather than take stock of why they lost in 2016 and address demands of ordinary Americans, the Democratic Party continues to scapegoat Russia and WikiLeaks in a misguided lawsuit, says Norman Solomon in this commentary.

Missile Attack on Syria Is a Salute to "Russiagate" Enthusiasts -- Whether They Like It or Not U.S. media spent most of the last week clamoring for Trump to order air strikes on Syria. Powerful news organizations have led the way in goading Trump to prove that he's not a Putin lackey after all. One of the clearest ways that Trump can offer such proof is to recklessly show he's willing to risk a catastrophic military confrontation with Russia.

Is MSNBC Now the Most Dangerous Warmonger Network? MSNBC's incessant "Russiagate" coverage has put the network at the media forefront of overheated hyperbole about the Kremlin. And continually piling up the dry tinder of hostility toward Russia boosts the odds of a cataclysmic blowup between the world's two nuclear superpowers.

Robert Parry Was One of the Good Guys What made Bob Parry a trailblazer for independent journalism also made him a bridge burner with the media establishment. He refused to take on faith the official story, whether from governments or news outlets. Robert Parry carried the lantern high. Now others will need to carry it on.
