DID TODAY’S LIBERALS LOVE THE SECRETIVE, CORRUPT PROCESS THAT LED US TO WAR IN IRAQ?

(I didn’t think so.) So, why should we embrace the same process — initiated by a Bush administration holdover — when it’s led us to a new Cold War with Russia? (We shouldn’t.) In the early 2000′s, Dick “Dark Side” … Continue reading

HOW’S THIS FOR COMMITMENT TO OPEN, CIVIL DISCOURSE? (CENSORED AGAIN…)

Enact Universal Healthcare for California just NUKED ME for criticizing their group’s endorsement of Sen. Warren — which blatantly misrepresents her (ever-waffling) position on Medicare-for-All. Here’s the comment that got me censored and prevented from even “Liking” their posts: I … Continue reading

Bernie Sanders is apparently getting desperate…

With the rise of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders is apparently getting desperate to raise his profile. That he would stoop to recording a music video — a cover, no less — is actually a bit sad, but here it … Continue reading

HILLARY CLINTON “WARMONGER” IS HARDLY A “RUSSIAN SMEAR”

But that’s precisely the argument that was posited, recently, by a mainstream Democrat at a progressive news-hub I regularly visit. Although the commenter’s post includes the concession that Clinton is “far from a pacifist,” they nonetheless insisted that describing the … Continue reading

R.I.P., DAVID KOCH, MAJOR SHAREHOLDER IN AMERICA’S LEADING POLITICAL PARTIES AND OTHER INSTITUTIONS… INCLUDING THE “LIBERAL” MEDIA.

While Thom Hartmann has had some consistent problems blundering into the quicksand of “lesser evil” partisanship, causing him to be a frequent apologist for one-half of our pernicious duopoly, I still consider him a fairly decent progressive who has occasionally … Continue reading

FUCKERY

Demonstrating, yet again, that the Democratic Party has learned none of the lessons of 2016, the DNC appears hellbent on preventing Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a staunchly anti-war progressive, from taking her place on the debate stage. Rep. Gabbard has done … Continue reading

FOOL US *TWICE* WITH “WMD” FABRICATIONS? SHAME ON US…

In the early 2000’s, the corporate media, virtually in lockstep, told us that Saddam Hussein had “WMD” — systematically burying all evidence to the contrary. All skeptics and dissenters were purged, including the NYT’s Pulitzer-winning journalist, Chris Hedges. And, as … Continue reading

“THE ENVIRONMENTAL PRESIDENT”

Bush-Obama’s methane legacy — “Freedom Gas” choking the biosphere… From the article: “Between 2005 and 2015, fracking went from producing 31 billion cubic meters of shale gas per year to producing 435 billion cubic meters. “Nearly 90 percent of that … Continue reading

Russiagate defined.

Russiagate = supporting the neo-fascists behind the genocide of millions of predominantly Arab-Muslim civilians (under Trump’s three predecessors alone: 1+ million under Clinton, 1+ million under Bush, 500,000+ under Obama) in order to convey to one’s bourgeois peers one’s purely … Continue reading

Lies, damn lies, and… deliberately screwing with polling data to deceive your audience.

Katie Halper continues her great reporting on U.S. politics, noting how the corporate media systematically misreports polling data in order to cheat progressives and elevate establishmentarians like Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg. (Echoes of 2016, with the 1% … Continue reading
