  • NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll: Pushing Impeachment Would Backfire On Democrats In 2018

    Pledging to impeach President Trump would backfire on Democrats hoping to take back the House of Representatives this fall, according to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll. The survey finds that 47 percent of registered voters would definitely vote against a candidate who wanted to remove Trump from office, while 42 percent would definitely vote for a candidate who would make such a promise. Forty-seven percent of independent voters - whose opinions could be decisive - also say they would vote against candidates favoring impeachment. Unsurprisingly, impeachment is a non-starter with 84 percent of GOP voters. And Lee Miringoff, the director...

    People stood on chairs with their phones outstretched and fell into a familiar, excited chant. “Bernie! Bernie!” they said together as Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vt.-I, came into the room. Unlike the memorable, mega-events from his presidential campaign, with throngs of mostly young voters, a year and half later this room was made up of 450 fresh-faced, Democratic candidates seeking public office themselves, many for the first time. The training offered targeted lessons from seasoned campaign managers and consultants about the nuts and bolts of managing a campaign. Screenwriters and Hollywood producers in a nearby room gave the candidates suggestions for...

    Progressive socialists have taken a once glorious state, full of opportunity, new ideas, and weather that most in this nation would fight for.I arrived in California during my Navy career and stayed because I thought the shiny sparkling California I saw at the time would remain the beacon for the rest of the country. California has always been called the tip of the spear of changes in this country. The spear of change has been turned on the people of this state, of which, unfortunately, I am still one. A wave of progressive social policies has been forced upon those...
  • Macron sparks uproar in France with church remarks

    Remarks by French President Emmanuel Macron that he wanted to repair church-state ties caused uproar Tuesday, sparking charges he was tampering with France’s longstanding secular tradition. The Church and the state were for centuries virtually indistinguishable in France, but the 1789 Revolution marked the first step by republicans to exclude religion from government affairs, codified in a 1905 law separating the two. But tensions have persisted, with conservative politicians often accusing officials of denying France’s cultural heritage — as seen in efforts to install nativity scenes at town halls during Christmas. Macron, who prides himself on tackling difficult issues head-on,...

  • How the Denver DSA Convinced the Local Democratic Party to Endorse Socialism in Its Platform

    The Intercept ^ | 29 Mar, 2018 | Zaid Jilani
    display of grassroots power, the Denver chapter of Democratic Socialists of America, or DSA, successfully convinced the Denver Democratic Party to endorse a key tenet of democratic socialism in their party platform. The party’s official platform now includes the following plank: We believe the economy should be democratically owned and controlled in order to serve the needs of the many, not to make profits for the few. The construction used here is similar to “for the many not the few,” the slogan used by the U.K.’s Labour Party. That party is currently run by Jeremy Corbyn, a committed socialist, who...

    In 1968, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was a novice in the Society of Jesus. And now that he is pope he is making no mystery of what he thinks about the “social upheaval,” his own words, of that year which has become legendary. Some of it is already known to the ambassadors accredited to the Holy See, who in the discourse that Francis addressed to them at the beginning of this year had thrown back into their faces precisely what the pope maintains to be the perverse effects of ’68. It was the first time that Bergoglio had his say over...

    Do they really hate ordinary people that much? Yes, they do. For liberals, the distinction between the "dumb masses" and their enlightened selves renders life meaningful. Disdain for ordinary folks is not just an ancillary trait of liberalism. It is fundamental to the its nature. At its heart, liberalism is a gnostic religion, and the essence of that religion is the believer's faith that he possesses the means of changing the world for the better. The belief that the world must be changed requires there to be a mass of individuals whose lives are in need of change. Following this...

    I like to wait for the dust to clear before opining on events.  Not everyone does. The bodies of the victims of the Parkland shooting weren't cold before democrats clawed their way to the front of TV cameras. A nice touch. Of course, obama had to be heard.

    The leaders of the Jewish communities of four Nordic countries said that a bill proposing to ban nonmedical circumcision in Iceland “will guarantee” that no Jewish community is established there. The presidents of the umbrella groups of Jewish communities in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland issued the unusual warning Tuesday in an open letter to all Icelandic lawmakers in reaction to the submission last month of a bill proposing to ban all nonmedical circumcision of boys younger than 18 in Iceland, a Scandinavian island nation of some 300,000 people with a few hundred Jews and Muslims. Lawmakers from four parties...

    DALLAS - If you can’t win big, go small. That’s the strategy gaining momentum among criminal justice reformers in the age of Trump, as the federal government hardens its approach to law enforcement. Instead of pouring money and energy into squeezing change out of Washington, national civil rights organizations are teaming with local groups to push their agendas in county-level district attorney races, where a few thousand votes can determine who asserts the most influence over the local justice system. Picking their targets carefully, and crunching election data to influence pivotal voter blocs - and benefiting from the largesse of...

    Neo-fascists, shouting what was described as a "Nazi slogan," attacked a group of Antifa protesters outside of a venue where conservative activist Charles Kirk had just concluded a lecture. The fascists, believed to be connected to the Traditionalist Worker Party, charged a group of anti-fascist protesters as they were dispersing. Police in riot gear moved in to restore order. Protesters were drawn to campus because of a speech by conservative activist Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA, which says on its website is devoted to the promotion of the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets and limited government.

    Washington Post ^ | December 21, 2017 | By Paul Kane
    To fill their top spot on the House Judiciary Committee, Democrats had a choice between experts in two critical policy arenas: a constitutional law ace with firsthand experience battling President Trump, and an architect of sweeping immigration legislation. By a wide margin, they chose the constitutional law expert. Why? To ready themselves for a battle with Trump that could end with impeachment proceedings. The selection of Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) as the ranking member on Judiciary was the clearest sign yet of how seriously House Democrats consider the possibility of a full-blown constitutional showdown with Trump. Democrats are careful to...

    March On, a new organization founded by leaders of the massive women's protests the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration, is taking to the airwaves with a holiday-themed push for his impeachment. While the group's message — including offering for sale red Christmas sweaters embroidered with the word "Impeach" — strikes a different tone from liberal activist Tom Steyer’s deadly serious $10 million ad campaign on removing Trump, the effort is another sign that the Democratic Party's progressive base is getting ahead of its leaders on impeachment. "This holiday season, a new wish tops letters to Santa across the land:...

    NBC "News" ^ | November 16, 2017 | by Rebecca Seligman
    A year after the election, many of us are still trying to explain how Trump got elected, while also searching for explanations of his often erratic, dangerous and un-presidential behavior. Many have diagnosed Trump from afar with various mental disorders, including antisocial personality, paranoia, sadism, hypomania and especially narcissistic personality disorder. But as a psychological anthropologist, I know that explaining Trump requires that we look beyond the vagaries of his brain chemistry or socialization, to the social and political structures around him. And though we systematically ignore structural causes for people's behavior in favor of personal ones, I would argue...
  • Jerry Brown blasts climate change ‘denialists in the room’ at European Parliament

    BRUSSELS Gov. Jerry Brown, arriving in Brussels after collegial events in Germany, sparred publicly with British politicians when confronted over his climate change record at the European Parliament on Wednesday. Steven Woolfe, a British politician on the parliament, was first to pierce the pleasantries, accusing Brown of supporting state intervention “at a huge scale” and spending and increasing taxes “like it’s going out of fashion.” Brown’s climate change policy, he argued isolates the state from much of the U.S. Woolfe dismissed California’s cap-and-trade carbon market a “tax-and-spend” policy. And he teased the governor as potentially being interested in joining the...

    The Nation ^ | November 7, 2017 | By Katrina vanden Heuvel
    In the run-up to the 2016 election, Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) dismissed the possibility that Donald Trump’s popularity with rural and working-class voters spelled trouble for the Democratic ticket. “For every blue-collar Democrat we lose in western Pennsylvania, we will pick up two moderate Republicans in the suburbs in Philadelphia,” he proclaimed, reflecting the prevailing attitude within the party establishment. “And you can repeat that in Ohio and Illinois and Wisconsin.” One year after the election, it’s not clear that Democrats have learned their lesson. Many have deluded themselves into believing that Russian interference, and not the party’s abysmal...

    If there was a fancy Malibu rehab center for Trump Derangement Syndrome it would be jam packed with celebrities right now. Ten months into Trump’s first term Hollywood actors, directors, comedians and singers are STILL having trouble coping with life under President Trump. Comedian Rosie O’Donnell confessed her sick obsession: “I spend like pretty much 90 percent of my waking hours tweeting hatred” towards Trump. And for some celebs Trump became a literal nightmare they can’t wake up from. Actor Rob Reiner whined: “I’m in a nightmare that doesn’t ever stop,” and hippie-singer David Crosby wailed about the “orange nightmare...
