The Mickey Huff and Nolan Higdon’s book, “United States of Distraction: Media Manipulation in Post-Truth America (And What We Can Do About It)”, begins in 2016, when Donald Trump was slaughtering all reason with his racist and nativist appeals to those left behind by the globalist deindustrialization of America.
“In this moment of crisis, more and more people understand that we need fundamental changes to our economy, and we need fundamental changes to our healthcare system.” – Sen. Bernie Sanders
“The OAS must send an emergency election monitoring team to the United States to ensure independent scrutiny of a presidential primary that has been marred by clear irregularities and the systematic and highly discriminatory obstruction of citizens’ right to vote,” says Grayzone editor Max Blumenthal.
The time is now to support the strongest candidate to beat Trump. The time is now to build power and dignity for Black, Brown and working people. Please join me in voting March 3rd and helping to elect President Bernie Sanders.
“I feel sad for the poor culinary workers in Nevada who are being betrayed by their union leaders who are not supporting Medicare for All. Remember, M4A is not about health care; it is about health care financing. The culinary workers are not giving up anything; they are replacing what they have with something far better. They keep their doctors and nurses and hospitals, they get long term care, and they lose their co-pays and deductibles. Yes, they have fought hard for what they have, but M4A means their fighting is at an end.”
Our best chance at a bright future is Bernie Sanders. We need the courage to vote for the best world possible, for the biggest dreams, for the biggest potential shift in government and politics.
‘Political revolution in action’: National pro-Bernie coalition launches unified voter mobilization...
A diverse coalition of progressive advocacy groups has launched what it is billing as “the largest independent mobilizing commitment for any candidate” in order to turn out an additional 1.4 million voters in a slate of key primary states on behalf of Sen. Bernie Sanders and the working class movement his campaign has built.
In early December 2019, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, said, “There’s no chance the president’s going to be removed from office.”
“Support for Bernie Sanders is definitely one of the threads uniting most of those here today. The California Progressive Alliance voted to endorse him, and there’s tremendous support for him here in California.” – Whitney Leigh, California Progressive Alliance Steering Committee
What would MLK think about our fractured and divisive country and world of today? He would be shocked by so many unhoused, hungry, suffering people, mass incarceration, children in cages, extreme poverty, the climate crisis, and trillions spent on the Pentagon, ongoing wars and now, nukes in space (Space Force), a new war for oil looming, and extreme income inequality. He would be upset by the lying fascists running and ruining our country.
The 54-page Green New Deal for Public Housing Act, which Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez introduced at a press conference, was co-sponsored in the Senate by Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., and endorsed by more than 50 climate and affordable housing organizations.
Among the Democratic candidates for president, there is one person who speaks for the vast, long-suffering working class, the beating heart of America: Bernie Sanders.
The San Francisco Bay View newspaper so thoroughly and heartily agrees with the choices and the reasoning for making them laid out here by Jeremiah Jeffries that we present them in place of the Bay View Voters Guide.
From all indications, Bernie will soon be back on the campaign trail. As he has been the first to say, it’s not about him, it’s about us. How much compassion and commitment can we find in our hearts?
Clinton won 65 percent, Bernie Sanders 35 percent in states with strictly electronic voting machines. In states with paper ballots, Clinton won 49 percent, Sanders 51 percent.
“How I Lost by Hillary Clinton” is a collection of the DNC and Podesta emails published by Wikileaks in 2016, introduced and annotated by Consortium News Editor Joe Lauria, with a foreword by political prisoner Julian Assange. I had a hard time putting “How I Lost By Hillary Clinton” down until I was done. Like most Wikileaks releases, it drew me into the minds of those who decide who will live, who will die, who will be impoverished and who enriched.
Online progressive activists with The Digital Left are announcing a campaign to draft and elect Representative Barbara Lee to be the next speaker of the House. Within 48 hours of polls closing in the midterm elections, the group, alongside The Humanist Report, has gathered more than 5,000 signatures on an online petition calling on Democratic members of the 117th Congress to elect Rep. Lee as speaker of the House.
Nov. 6 is election day. If you haven’t done it already, register to vote. Encourage others to register and vote. Most of your ballots will be filled with local or state issues and candidates. Voters in the United States need more choices than Democrats and Republicans. If you see the name of a Green Party candidate, I hope you will check them out. Greens believe that people and the health of the planet should be more important than corporate profit.
In California’s top-two primary system, only the top two vote getters advance to the general election, meaning that only two names will be on the ballot for each race in November. Since California is a very blue state, that often means that two Democrats advance. However, three Green Party candidates for the U.S. Congress advanced in California races this year. Among them is Laura Wells, whose name will appear alongside that of incumbent Barbara Lee in the East Bay’s District 13 race.
The answers to the problems are all wrapped together in the beautiful writing of Coates, a man whose politics are still forming, but on such a large scale that these criticisms must come with an urgency, as West delivered them. I respect West magnificently for his actual work in activism, both historically and currently. If Coates is to continue being called the voice of my people, he has to move from being a traditional intellectual who walks the line of academic and objective writer into the space of organic intellectual that he likely sees himself as, who is activistic in nature.
