(And a plea…) I genuinely and sincerely celebrate with you the imminent departure of Donald Trump from the White House — even though he deported fewer immigrants and caged fewer children than his immediate predecessor… even though the holocaust of Middle Eastern Muslims largely stalled under his administration… even though he was the first president to begin rolling back The… Read More »CONGRATULATIONS, BIDEN VOTERS!

This debate between Aaron Mate and the New York Times Magazine’s Mattathias Schwartz is truly entertaining. Schwartz is genial enough and a shrewd debater, and he often does a good job of representing the establishment’s main Russiagate arguments. (He’s got them down pat.) The problem is that, compared to Aaron Mate, Mr. Schwartz is out of his depth, even when… Read More »A SPIFFINGLY GOOD RUSSIAGATE DEBATE!
[The following rant was written in response to Tom Gallaher’s piece, “Joe Biden, Don’t Let Trump Run as the Anti-War Candidate!”] It has apparently escaped sheepherder Gallagher’s attention that Donald Trump has “walked the (anti-war) walk” a hell of a lot more consistently than Barack Obama did — which, of course, isn’t saying much, considering how Obama needlessly resuscitated the… Read More »ASSUAGING WHITE LIBERAL GUILT BY ERASING MILLIONS OF BROWN PEOPLE…
According to the California state prosecutors investigating OneWest Bank in 2015 — and its then-CEO, Steve Mnuchin — the evidence was overwhelming that OneWest and Mnuchin had committed thousands of felonies. Thousands! Those felonies chiefly consisted of falsifying thousands of documents and lying to notaries, making it possible for OneWest to illegally foreclose on several thousand homeowners (disproportionately African-American homeowners… Read More »“Case NOT filed despite strong recommendation”
21 Aug “Once we get Biden in the White House, we can hold his feet to the fire…” Scorch them tootsies! I like my Biden feet well-done! Is it possible? Can we do to those metaphorical “feet” what Biden’s Democratic Party, clumsily assisted by the GOP, has been doing to the planet over the last few decades? Can we slow-roast… Read More »“Once we get Biden in the White House, we can hold his feet to the fire…”
Don’t “purists” suck? Why can’t we bully them into voting for Trump’s moral and political doppelganger — the white-supremacist, genocidal neocon hectoring him from the right?
BNMW (Blue No Matter Who) #1 writes: “All you progressives with your nose in the air, oh I won’t vote for Biden, Bernie should be the nominee. Blah, blah, blah, same as 2016 when you said, I won’t vote for Hillary, Bernie should be the nominee. “You self-righteous people, and I would like to use a different word than people… Read More »Don’t “purists” suck?

As the Republican Party prepares to disenfranchise millions of people of color, students, and poor people, this November, it would be healthy to remind ourselves that the GOP’s Democratic partners do precisely the same in their primaries, preventing anyone remotely liberal from winning national elections… ultimately leading to “President Trump.” Here’s voter suppression expert, the BBC’s Greg Palast (excerpted from… Read More »“THE IMMEDIATE ISSUE HERE IS A MILLION BLACK AND BROWN AND ASIAN-AMERICANS LOSING THEIR VOTES…”
U.S.-trained, duopoly-recognized “President” Guiado continues to put his faith in thuggish violence and U.S. mercenaries as a means to overthrow Venezuela’s elected government (recognized by over 75% of the world’s nations). But Venezuela keeps defending its duly elected government, even in the face of Washington’s coup attempts and U.S. sanctions that the U.N. Rapporteur on Human Rights has likened to… Read More »BAY OF PIGS 2020
Republicans and Democrats just gave trillions to corporations that haven’t even begun to feel the pain of this pandemic. They threw crumbs (a one-time payment of $1,200 and modestly increased unemployment payments) to the 99% and guaranteed a far greater economic Depression than the last one. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs and their employer-provided health insurance. Millions more… Read More »PARTISANSHIP IS KING.
IF THE U.S. POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT GETS ITS WAY, THIS MAY BE AS CLOSE AS WE EVER GET TO MEDICARE-FOR-ALL…
Shame on Bernie Sanders and the Democrats for letting Donald Trump outflank them from the left (again!) during this pandemic — in an election year, no less! But kudos to Trump for doing something vaguely responsible after badly bungling the initial response to the crisis (along with everyone else, including the primary-focused, CDC-defying Dems). Shockingly, Donald Trump has made it… Read More »IF THE U.S. POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT GETS ITS WAY, THIS MAY BE AS CLOSE AS WE EVER GET TO MEDICARE-FOR-ALL…
