Down With Tyranny - 2020-01-18 - Original post - cached version

Today Ann Kuster appeared at a Mayo Pete rally in Concord, New Hampshire, having just endorsed him the day before. Kuster herself has been an especially bitter disappointment for progressives since she first took her seat in Congress in 2013, quickly joining the Wall Street-owned and...

Writing for Bloomberg News yesterday, Jonathan Bernstein noted that Republican senators don’t even know what they’re covering up for, or at least what they would be covering up for if they follow the White House’s preference to rush through the Senate...

You would think that passing Bobby Scott's Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act (H.R. 1230) would be easy as pie. And it kind of was. It passed the House Monday 261-155, every single Democrat voting yes-- even the worst of the Blue Dogs and New Dems and 34 Republicans...

All during this Trump impeachment era, the Republicans in the $enate have been searching for every possible way to express their solidarity with their Grand Dear Clown Leader. Now, it seems they have found a way that is acceptable to all of them. I'm guessing their...

Don't pass out, but Trump was lying in the 30 second clip above. He didn't get 46% of Hispanic voters; he got 28%. And he didn't win among the highly educated. Only 36% of college graduates voted for him. However, he was telling the truth about the poorly educated. A full third of his vote...

When I was beginning my teenage years, I had a girlfriend whose family lived on Avenue Z in Brooklyn, not far from the Trump family housing project, Beach Haven, that Woody Guthrie lived in and wrote a song about. I used to visit her a lot and often saw the Trumps (though, alas, never...

If I were Status Quo Joe, I'd be embarrassed to admit I was endorsed by California New Dem Ami Bera, a member of Congress so toxic that the California Democratic Party decided to not back him for reelection. After all, caught in an illegal campaign finance scheme, he let his elderly father...

The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) to the U.S. Constitution passed another milestone yesterday. Virginia became the 38th state-- and that's how many you need to make it the 28th amendment. But the Trump regime has already moved forcefully to prevent that. Let me explain. First the text...

Last week I was asking members of Congress who they thought the impeachment managers would be. No one wanted to say, especially not the potential members of the team. But one senior Democrat who may or may not have been drinking, blurted out, "Oh you know Nancy... two men, two women,...

I think of Rick Wilson as one of the MSNBC resident #NeverTrumpers who wants to push the Democratic Party far right enough-- it's almost there-- to be the pre-Trump Republican Party. He and Jim Messina could start a transpartisan status quo firm. Messia, who worked for anti-healthcare...

Last week-- on Fox News, no less-- Kentucky Senator Rand Paul (R) said Trump should never have pulled out of the Iran nuclear agreement and that the assassination of Qassem Soleimani was a mistake, the two blunders together making the U.S. "less safe." A poll by Ipsos since then shows...
