Contrary to What Biden Said, U.S. Warfare in Afghanistan Is Set to Continue There's no good reason to assume the air war in Afghanistan will be over when -- according to President Biden's announcement on Wednesday -- all U.S. forces will be withdrawn from that country. What Biden didn't say was as significant as what he did say. Biden did not say that the United States will stop bombing Afghanistan.

GOP Hypocrisy Is No Reason to Support Neera Tanden There are very important reasons to prevent Tanden from becoming the Office of Management and Budget director. They have nothing to do with her nasty tweets and everything to do with her political orientation.

Cuomo and Newsom Symbolize the Rot of Corporate Democrats -- and the Dire Need for Progressive Populism The governors of New York and California -- the most populous states led by Democrats -- now symbolize how slick liberal images are no substitute for genuinely progressive priorities.

What About the "Unimpeachable" Offenses? By narrowly defining which offenses are impeachable, political elites are implicitly telling us which offenses aren't.

Progressives Can Make Truly Great Changes Happen During the Biden Presidency If President Biden is pushed hard and far and persistently enough, some truly great changes are possible.

Don't Let President Biden "Make Us the Dupes of Our Hopes" More than being a time of hope or fatalism the inauguration of President Joe Biden should be a time of skeptical realism and determination.

Denouncing Republican Evils Can't Do Much for the Biden Presidency Without Demanding Progressive Policies The Republican plunge into Trumpism has made the party especially unhinged and dangerous, but its basic ideology has long been a shameless assault on minimal standards of human decency.

In 2021, the Best Way to Fight Neofascist Republicans Is to Fight Neoliberal Democrats Republicans who've made clear their utter contempt for democracy will retain powerful leverage over the U.S. government. And they're securely entrenched because Trumpism continues to thrive in much of the country.

Neera Tanden and Antony Blinken Personify the 'Moderate' Rot at the Top of the Democratic Party Sometimes a couple of nominations convey an incoming president's basic mindset and worldview. That's how it seems with Joe Biden's choices to run the Office of Management and Budget and the State Department.

Bernie Sanders and Progressives in Our Winter of Discontent At this point, Sanders and avid supporters of the Bernie 2020 campaign have ample reasons to feel frustrated, even "enormously" insulted. It's small comfort that Biden's picks so far are purportedly "not as bad as Obama's" were 12 years ago. That's a low bar, especially to those who understand that Barack Obama heavily corporatized his presidency from the outset.

Michèle Flournoy's Hopes Collapse Just a few weeks ago, super hawk Michèle Flournoy was being touted as a virtual shoo-in to become Joe Biden's nominee for Secretary of Defense.

Some Liberals and Arms-Control Experts Are Cheering for War Profiteers to Be in Biden's Cabinet Antony Blinken and Michèle Flournoy shamelessly teamed up to cash in while rotating through high positions at the State Department and Pentagon. At the same time, Blinken (the Biden nominee to be Secretary of State) and Flournoy (in the running for Secretary of Defense) have backed nonstop U.S. warfare.

Hey Joe, Where You Going With That Pentagon in Your Hands? The frontrunner to be Joe Biden's pick for Secretary of Defense is Michèle Flournoy. It's a prospect that should do more than set off alarm bells -- it should be understood as a scenario for the president-elect to stick his middle fingers in the eyes of Americans who are fed up with endless war and ongoing militarism.

Progressive Message to Joe Biden: Don't You Dare "Cooperate" With Mitch McConnell If Biden chooses to "cooperate" with Mitch McConnell, that choice is likely to set off a political war between the new administration and the Democratic Party's progressive base.

Progressives Made Trump's Defeat Possible. Now It's Time to Challenge Biden and Other Corporate Democrats. With enormous grassroots outreach that only they could credibly accomplish, progressive activists were a crucial part of the de facto united front to defeat Trump. Now it's time to get on with grassroots organizing to challenge corporate Democrats.

Why a Former Green Party Candidate Is on a Very Long Fast -- Urging Progressives to Vote for Biden to Defeat Trump I asked Glick about the role of today's Green Party, which is actively seeking votes for its presidential candidate Howie Hawkins -- even in some of the most tightly contested battleground states... Glick replied. "But their electoral strategy of always running someone for president has alienated large numbers of people who agree with their principles and program."
