Provisional ballots: It's All About Vote Suppression Republican attacks on the counting of provisional and absentee ballots are just an attack on the right to vote.

Thinking long-term about the election: Not a Blue Wave, but Perhaps a Foreshock of the Big Blue One that's Coming The Dems got the House, but the Big Blue Wave is yet to come.

Election Special: Many Rural Citizens Vote Against Their Own Medicaid in Federal and State Elections Here's a paradox, writes TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff in Tarbell.org: voters in the same rural communities that are uniquely reliant upon Medicaid for their health care consistently vote for Republican state and national candidates who want to slash Medicaid (and Medicare and Social Security).

Scare-Mongering is the Only Thing Trump and Republicans Have Got The right-wing media and Donald Trump are making a crazy scare story out of a sad bunch of desperate Honduran refugees, pretending a bunch of poor young men and women and their little kids are about to "invade" America bringing rapists, killers and dangerous disease to our shores, writes TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff. We should be offering them help, not armed troops.

Media circulation/ratings obsession drives computer voting: Why Do We Even Have Voting Machines? Why are we using machines to vote when they're costly, hackable, break down and don't have a paper trail? Because the media love them since they give instant results, writes TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff. That's as lousy a reason as turning in a story before it's done to beat the competion. We need paper ballots for honest elections.

Not all bad as 'boofing' Brett sullies SOTUS: Kavanaugh on the High Court will be a Source of Ridicule If we're going to have 5 Trogs on SOTUS, at least it's good to have another, along with Thomas, who is an object of ridicule, Boofing Bart fills that role well and will help degrade the conservative court and its rulings, writes TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff, so start wailing on him.

Battle of the ages: Priciest US Weapon, the F-35, Just Attacked One of World's Most Primitive Fighters, the Taliban Why did the Pentagon send its most advanced fighter, the F35B, on a ground attack mission in Afghanistan against America's most primitive enemy, the Taliban?

A confirmation hearing is a job interview, not a trial: Candidates for Judgeships Have No 'Presumption of Innocence' The right argues Kavanaugh deserves a 'presumption of innocence' but his hearing is not a trial, it's a job interview and as any US worker knows, you get no such presumption when you apply for a job, or even a right to confront references who trash you, writes TCBH! journalist Dave LIndorff

The US Need Not Inevitably Descend into Violent Chaos If and When Disaster Strikes Both the survivalist right and liberal politicians pushing back on environmentalists who want strong action on cutting carbon emissions warn of violent chaos in case of economic collapse or rules banning oil/gas wells or gas guzzling vehicles.

The Kavanaugh Hearing is about Political Posturing, Not Keeping a Political Hack Off the High Court Cory Booker and his Democratic colleagues in the Kavanaugh hearings are a pale imitation of a real 'profile in courage', former Sen. Mike Gravel, who ignored a national security classification to read the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record when a federal court was banning publication by US newspapers. Where's that kind of courage today? asks TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff

The NY Times' remarkable opinion article: Is it Treason or Defense of the Constitution? If the anonymous NY Times opinion writer from inside the Trump White House is acting to defend the Constitution, he/she's doing the right thing. If it's to push an agenda different from Trump's we're looking at a silent coup, and that's not good, writes TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff

Mainstream media hypocrisy on display: Press Freedom for me Censorship for You Hundreds of US newspapers large and small ran editorials Thursday defending Press Freedom and condemning Trump's attacks on the media, but the defense they put up is limited to them.
