Down With Tyranny - 2019-07-21 - Original post - cached version

Earlier this morning we saw Albert Lee make a pretty compelling case for himself as a candidate for the Portland, Oregon congressional seat, admitting the incumbent, Earl Blumenauer, isn't the worst Democrat and a couple of weeks ago Frances Motiwalla here in L.A. made a similar kind of case...

He’s not the worst Democrat. Why are you running against Earl? I get that question a lot. Yes, he is not the worst, but why settle for mediocrity? Also, I am not running against Earl, I am running to represent the People of the Third District of Oregon to the United States Congress.

News from Bernie or from Elizabeth Warren almost always involves policy initiatives. News from the two top-ranked conservatives almost never does. It's either some rote attack on Trump or something about money. Yesterday, CNN ran a typical piece about how Biden gets most of the super-...

If Wednesday night's batshit insane "Send Her Back" chanting at Trump's North Carolina rally (as he nodded along and stifled a smile) showed us one thing, it's that republicans are now in a (to them) glorious full racist meltdown. They hardly even pretend to hide their...

There are only 5 freshmen with perfect voting records-- here are 3 of them

In March we decided to take a first look at how the new House members were getting started in the voting department. At the time, 24 freshmen still had 100% perfect scores-- and only 23 had "F" ratings. Today...

Fascism Comes To America by Nancy Ohanian

So, did Trump throw his neo-Nazi cheerleaders in North Carolina under the bus or not? Well... he definitely did-- and then he tried to take it back. He had Republicans all mixed up for the past 3 days. As Annie Karni explained to NY Times...

After crackpot neo-liberal Congressman John Delaney (New Dem-MD) sold his seat to multimillionaire New Dem David Trone, he declared he was running for president, packed his bags and "moved" to Iowa. He also gave his campaign a personal loan of between $11 and $16 million, which...

German Nazis in black and white; North Carolina Nazis in color

If you've been watching the news this past week, you might have had the same reaction as I did, ie. didn't everyone with a functioning brain already realize that Trump is a flat out racist? I mean, hell, that's a big part of the appeal to those who voted for him. The...

There wasn't a policy of his I ever agreed with when Sanford was a congressman the first time, nor while he was governor, nor when he rejoined Congress. And I still don't. When he hits on a truth-- example: Trump is a shit head who is wrecking our country-- his analysis is never correct. Same...
