Testing Republican Values The values at the core of administration proposals must be effectively and deftly highlighted by those opposed to regressing decades in the critical areas of health care, the environment, taxation, and climate.

Where Is Father's Little Helper and Why is Acid Cool? The Sunday "New York Times" article "Mother's Little Helper" describes acid use by a Mom to save her marriage and her mental health. But what do we expect of women? And do we risk normalizing drug use even as we experience about as many deaths from opioids as guns or car crashes? The stories we tell ourselves about who we are are critical. Injustices and challenges can prompt societal change rather than escapism.

Dems: Let's Read Important, Self-Critical Articles on the Election Our post-election environment often lacks inward and insightful analysis. Yet it is critical to refocus on the failures exposed in the institutions of democracy and the rifts within our nation. A number of individuals have published important articles which are linked to and quoted from here.

Critical Foreign Policy Questions For an Overdue Reset The intense hypermasculinity and violence we see in our society and in Trump's rise is mirrored in our global postures of aggression and dominance. It has been presented by a recipe for so-called security, even while demonstrating in almost every situation its failure to meet its goals and to secure human rights.

Dear Hillary Supporters: Stop Saying These Seven Things to Sanders' Voters Many of the things said to Sanders' supporters by Hillary's supporters do not represent a real attempt at communication or a commitment to progress based on solidarity. Let's change that.

The New York Times' False Foreign Policy Narratives The New York Times reporting on foreign affairs has promoted false narratives. It is critical to look at the twinned economic and political violence that the US has participated in the region to adopt models promoting peace, justice and sustainability.

Critical National and Global Challenges: Dems in Philly Fail to Confront Corporate Power The Democratic National Convention rightly pushed back on the xenophobia and misogyny of the Republican Convention, yet if failed to aggressively assert the public interest (which opposes that of corporations) on key national and global issues of war, trade, bees, agriculture, and climate, ultimately abdicating its responsibility to the American people. Those issues must be central to any progressive fight or movement.

Twenty-One Questions for Would-Be Presidents Friday brought news of two events -- the release of 29 pages from the Congressional Inquiry on links between the Saudi government and 9-11 and the attempted Turkish coup -- that highlight vital questions on our foreign policy, all the more so because the Iraq invasion has been the cause of major global chaos.

Clinton's Heist of Democracy and the Voter-Driven Superdelegate and Platform Solution California was just the culmination of Clinton's heist of democracy -- as elections, media, DNC, and superdelegates worked for a supersecret, ill-begot Clinton "victory" that would silence Sanders like never before in the primary. As voters, we still can choose to pressure superdelegates to do what we want in this nomination and in Congress. Accountability is the cornerstone of democracy.

Hillary's Exploitation of Democratic Institutions (Including Superdelegates) Exposed Hillary's campaign has manipulated and negated the proper role of Democratic and democratic institutions like the media, superdelegates, Democratic National Committee. Despite numerous unfair advantages, her weak campaign continues to struggle so she and her supporters are imposing the full weight of the these renegade institutions on Sanders in a bid to end his popular, progressive presidential campaign. It's shameful.

Why Superdelegates Who Will Choose the Nominee Should Vote Bernie The Democratic nomination will most almost certainly be decided by the superdelegates who must support Sanders, a far stronger candidate, and one who is widely lauded as representing the future of the Democratic party.

Clinton's Troublesome Record On Climate Climate change action should be one of our, if not our top priority. What is Clinton's record writ large? Her leadership has involved strong ties to corporations deeply vested in climate inaction, and the apparent execution of their climate agenda which do not seem to portend the overdue action that is needed.

Hillary: Gender, Power, and "It's Not Me, It's You" Hillary Clinton and her high profile supporters have a new strategy in which women who don't favor Clinton are told, "It's Not Me [Hillary], It's You." That coupled with their lecture on gender, feminism, and power is sure to win her more supporters. Not.

The High Cost of Ignoring Bernie Sanders' Policies: Racial Divisiveness and Worse The media has given Bernie Sanders a fraction of the time they've devoted to Donald Trump, during months of hate-filled speech by the latter. They've contributed to an environment where the political climate is focused on targeting minorities vs. the restoring justice and peace as powerfully advocated by Bernie Sanders.

The Media and the Right on the Planned Parenthood Attack: White Terrorism Falsehoods? It's bleak out there for the right The media and right have swung into White Terrorism Falsehoods (puzzlement and sadness response)-- WTF (posr) for short -- with the killing of three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic. They've spent days saying how his motive could not be determined and well ... just being sad ... because this is, after all, a right wing terrorist. It's time for some serious discussion on the use of terrorism and how we solve it at home.

Reframing and Preventing American Gun Violence It's time to reframe our discussion of American gun violence to reimagine solutions. As Chiraq points out, gun violence -- including horrific mass shootings -- is mostly committed by men. Culture and community remains key as well.

Hillary Clinton's Duplicity and Media Complicity Hillary Clinton's used well-rehearsed (often misleading) debate answers to aid her performance. Americans saw through it: numerous focus groups and polls declared Bernie Sanders the strong winner. But the charade allowed the mainstream media, agents in Noam Chomsky's propaganda model, to give her glowing reviews.

The Best Candidate for Minorities and Women (Not Hillary, Not Now) Should minorities and women support Hillary Clinton? Bernie Sanders comes under criticism for being from a primarily white state and not for campaigning on racial issues. Green candidate Jill Stein receives little media attention. Yet they both promote platforms that are much better for the security and opportunity of these groups.
