Amy Klobuchar, Minneapolis Police and Her Running Mate Quest During the first years of this century, with a bright political future ahead of her, Klobuchar refused to hold police officers accountable. And her failure to prosecute police who killed black men was matched by racially slanted eagerness to prosecute black men on the basis of highly dubious evidence.

Class War -- Not the Media Hokey Pokey -- Is What It's All About While negative coverage of Donald Trump has been common due to his handling of the pandemic, media outrage has been muted in relation to the magnitude of the dying in our midst at a time when most of the dying could have been prevented.

The Sanders Campaign Was About "Us" -- Not Bernie -- Remember? There are scant indications that the remnants of the Bernie 2020 campaign are doing anything to win "as many delegates as possible" in the 20 state primaries set for the next two months. That fact has left it up to individuals as well as independent groups and coalitions to do what they can to gain more Bernie delegates for the Democratic National Convention.

Some Progressives Are in Denial About Trump's Fascist Momentum Trumpism has started to feel normal. Trump stands a good chance of winning re-election in November. And his odds have improved because the Democratic Party nominated an abysmal candidate.

Bernie's Pivot for Biden Might Not Be Pleasant, But Trump Must Be Defeated Bernie Sanders is saying that progressives have a profound responsibility to fight against -- and oust -- the extreme right-wing forces that have gained control of the U.S. government's executive branch and, increasingly, the federal judiciary.

Bernie's Decision: Retreat Should Not Be Confused with Surrender We don't have a choice of whether or not we're in a class war. It's going on perpetually -- waged with enormous financial, political and media firepower. The firepower of class warfare against Bernie Sanders has been ferocious and unrelenting.

The Pandemic Makes the Bernie 2020 Campaign More Vital Than Ever It's possible that Sanders can gain enough delegates to become the Democratic nominee. But the Bernie 2020 campaign has never been only about winning. It has always also been about strengthening vital progressive movements while widening public discourse and political space.

Power in a Time of Coronavirus Rather than being a respite from political power struggles, the coronavirus emergency is greatly intensifying them. More aid for those immersed in greed will mean less for those in desperate need. The quest by corporate profiteers to mercilessly exploit dire situations has never flagged.

What the Coronavirus Emergency Has to Do with Biden vs. Sanders Sanders was correct when he said last week that "poll after poll, including exit polls, show that a strong majority of the American people support our progressive agenda." Days ago, the Bernie 2020 campaign sent out a mass email declaring that "our campaign has won the battle of ideas."

In a Dark Time, the Eye Begins to See': The Bernie 2020 Campaign Represents a Fight That Must Continue No matter who wins the Democratic presidential nomination, many millions of people will refuse to unsee what has become all too clear: ** A gloating Democratic Party establishment, glad to rally around Potemkin candidate Joe Biden and extol his carefully crafted facade. ** Overall, interlocking systems based on greed and corporate power instead of shared resources and genuine democracy.

The Sanders Coalition Is Set to Shock the World on Super Tuesday For many years, corporate media outlets said it couldn't be done. Now, they say it must not be. To the nation's punditocracy tacitly or overtly aligned with the nation's oligarchy nominating Bernie Sanders as the Democratic presidential candidate would be catastrophic.

The Escalating Class War Against Bernie Sanders More than ever, Bernie Sanders is public enemy number one for power elites that thrive on economic injustice. The Bernie 2020 campaign is a direct threat to the undemocratic leverage that extremely wealthy individuals and huge corporations constantly exert on the political process.

Why the Buttigieg Campaign Tried to Have Me Arrested for Handing Out These Medicare for All Fliers "Buttigieg is claiming that Medicare for All would dump people off of health coverage and deprive them of 'choice,'" our flier pointed out. "Those are insurance-industry talking points. He is deliberately confusing the current 'choice' of predatory for-profit insurance plans with the genuine full choice of healthcare providers that enhanced Medicare for everyone would offer."

Bernie Sanders Can Silence His Critics in New Hampshire Whether they agree with Bernie or not, people widely understand that he absolutely means what he says. And that helps to explain why, during the next seven days, in national media and across New Hampshire, corporate forces will be in overdrive to prevent a Bernie Sanders victory in the New Hampshire primary.

The Creation Myth of the Buttigieg Campaign Buttigieg's rise was propelled by the rocket fuel of funding from -- and bonding with -- wealthy corporate operators, who bundled big checks from other donors and provided an establishment seal of approval that resonated with mainstream media.

The Energizer Bernie and the Power Behind Him The Bernie Sanders campaign is so profoundly compelling at the grassroots. It is oriented to meshing electoral work with social movements -- however difficult that might be at times -- to generate political power from the ground up. And that's where genuine progressive change really comes from.
