John Bolton and Liberals' Irrational Hatred of Trump Bolton's bombshells probably won't affect world history much. But failure should not be an unfamiliar experience to Bolton, a blundering war planner who is as incompetent as he is immoral.

Big Bank CEOs Want to "Listen" to Black Communities. They Should Return Their Stolen Wealth Instead. Bank CEOs have been espousing a limited form of anti-racism lately, while studiously ignoring their own institutions' record of exploiting African Americans.

The Killers Inside Us: White Fury and the Thin Blue Line What do we do with a nation that keeps killing? Why do we tolerate the killing? Perhaps it's because, in white American culture, we've been programmed for it.

It's Not a "Chinese Virus." The Correct Name Is "The Capitalism Virus" COVID-19 reached New York primarily from Europe, not China. Italy was a center of the infection in Europe, and the deep business ties between Italy and China -- including the manufacture of designer bags and cheap clothing in Tuscany -- contributed to its devastating spread there.

Seven Rules for the Boeing Bailout As we change the way we live our lives, corporations like Boeing should change the way they are run. Corporate mismanagement made this crisis worse and, if it doesn't change, will make the recovery more difficult.

No, I Will Not Die for This Damned Economy Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick received a lot of attention Monday night when, according to many progressives, he seemed to tell Tucker Carlson that he was willing to die in order to preserve the American economy.

COVID in the Web Of Generations: A Faint Hello From the "Only" Ones The coronavirus has exposed the vulnerabilities in our world order, just as medical tests reveal vulnerabilities in our bodies. COVID-19 has bombarded this system with a kind of radiation. This system is dying, infected with a contagion as old as humanity: greed.

Of Course Bloomberg's an Oligarch -- and He's Coming For Your Social Security Given his virtually unlimited resources, Bloomberg could theoretically win both the nomination and the presidency. Bloomberg could pay the same "unit price" he paid to make himself mayor of New York -- $88 per voter -- and make himself president for $12 billion. He'd even have $50 billion set aside for a rainy day.

After Iowa, The Democratic Party Faces a Crisis of Legitimacy The Democratic Party's Iowa caucuses wasn't a failure of technology. It was a failure of values. This failure casts a shadow on the party's ability to carry out its basic responsibilities. Worse, it suggests that its leaders care more about helping their friends than serving the public interest.

"Balfouristans" for Bibi: "Apartheid" Isn't an Insult, It's a Blueprint The Palestinians don't need any more advice. If they ever do, they can always look to the South African freedom struggle. It will remind them of the path forward, a path for justice they have long known lies before them, the only path that will lead to a decent future for the generations to come: no compromise on basic rights, no colonialism, and full nationhood for the Palestinian people.

The Progressive's Guide to Corporate Democrat Speak Certain words and phrases are routinely used by "centrist" political candidates. By design, these terms are imprecise, emotionally charged, and often self-contradicting.

Can Bloomberg Buy the Election for $12 Billion? If So, He Can Write the Check Today If anybody can buy this election with personal funds, "Mike" can. He is one of the richest people in the world. According to Forbes, a source that is hardly hostile to the wealthy, Bloomberg currently has a net worth of $52.3 billion. He may have certain restrictions on his investments and assets, but borrowing against them would be easy.

The Fatal Flaw in Kamala Harris' Health Plan In the end, we're likely to find ourselves exactly where we are today: with a Democratic plan that has been damaged before it can be fully rolled out. Kamala Harris' plan is too fragile, too complex, and most of all too trusting of the predatory private sector to succeed.

Ilhan Omar and Bernie Got It Right: Full Student Debt Cancellation Is the Best Approach Sen. Bernie Sanders, together with Representatives Ilhan Omar and Pramila Jayapal, has introduced a dramatic reform package on college affordability. It goes far beyond anything proposed so far, both in its scope and in its potential to reshape the way Americans think about their society and government.

Medicare For All: Accept No Substitutes It's misleading to argue that Medicare for All would "eliminate" the current Medicare system. It would keep and enhance its positive features, while eliminating the out-of-pocket costs and administrative challenges that bedevil so many of its current recipients. Worse, the word "eliminate" is likely to sow unfounded panic among fearful elders.

Wall Street is leading the attack on Pelosi -- Steny Hoyer is the real barrier to the progressive agenda It's impossible to understand the Democratic rebellion against Nancy Pelosi without understanding the way power works in the House of Representatives. To understand the self-serving men behind this rebellion, heed the words of the late screenwriter William Goldman: Follow the money.

Pandering to Deficit Hawks Is a Losing Strategy Calls for Democratic unity are premature. Democrats are debating important ideas, including the importance of deficit reduction and the "pay as you go" principle. If the left loses that debate, the party is likely to lose later -- either this year, or in years to come. It shouldn't be silenced.

An Economy in the Fast Lane -- With No Brakes Trump has been bragging about the economy a lot lately. He says the United States is now the "economic envy" of the world. Unfortunately, Trump is once again trying to reshape reality to fit his own delusions. Reality is refusing to cooperate. Is the world likely to "envy" the tens of millions of Americans living in poverty, including the estimated 5.3 million Americans living in deep poverty?

Was Goldman's CEO "Inspiring" or Good for the Economy? Nope, and Nope There was the financial crisis, which was primarily the product of Wall Street firms. The recovery from that crisis has been lopsided, with only upper-income households seeing an increase in their median wealth. Middle- and lower-income families are worse off, and the wealth gap between upper-income families and everyone else is now rarely recorded.
