Like Trump’s toughness, pretending you’re using the Defense Production Act of 1950 and hoping for corporate volunteerism is not the same thing especially if you claim you’re in “wartime”. WWII was won with national production planning that overwhelmed the enemy. Trump’s enemy is as he
The Trump administration is sending out trial balloons (most recently in the form of human Hindenburg Larry Kudlow) to see if they can get the public on board with returning to business as usual (which will lead to, I don’t know, hundreds of thousands of unnecessary
This is my third diary on this topic. Each time I said I expected Bernie to stick it out through the debate and the March 17th primaries, and then he would leave the race. There were two reasons: First, he wanted to push Biden more
The Atlantic article by Sarada Peri assumes an event will occur that is endemic. Trump has destabilized facts and their media frames. If he’s going to cheat what was he doing before this moment, starting with when he lied about the wealth inherited from his father.
Former Ohio State wrestler Adam DiSabato made headlines this week when he claimed, during a public hearing, that Republican Rep. Jim Jordan asked him not to assert that sexual abuse allegations were well known within the university’s wrestling program and were ignored by Jordan and other coaches.

I believe we should push very hard for the testimony of John Bolton. But can we as Democrats be honest with ourselves about one very likely and important thing? John Bolton is not going to testify that President Trump committed an impeachable act. In fact,
The Washington Post ran an op-ed from James Comey today in which the former FBI director recounted the findings from the DOJ inspector general’s report on the Russia investigation while taking a melancholy victory lap of sorts. The IG report — which concluded that the investigation into Trump’s
Get it? Because all Jews hoard money! And they’re “brutal killers” who are “not nice people at all.” x TrumpÃ¢ÂÂs constant references to wealth and money whenever he talks to Jewish groups is abundantly unsubtle anti-Semitism.https://t.co/YWW5xXhC83— Jeff Yang (@originalspin) December 8, 2019 < p class=”is-empty-p”>
Economist Professor Richard Wolff gave a compelling reason for moving to the next economic system. His rhetorical question ‘Are we going to let a declining system take us down with it?’ is prescient. Economist Richard Wolff asked the right question Professor Economist Richard Wolff &
All of the reporting on Ukraine-gate deliberately discusses the held up military aid in terms of dollars, specifically $391 million – and reports the story in terms of holding up “funds” for Ukraine (or in one misleading example that I read: Ukraine was left “checking to
Congressional funds were deliberately held up for personal gain, as PABOTUS* shook down Ukraine. Everything else is disinformation, diversion and distraction, all in service of obstruction and corrupt intent. Virgil attempts to rob a bank, and he fails because the tellers have difficulty reading past
“At some point, I’m going to sit down, perhaps as a fireside chat on live television, and I will read the transcript of the call, because people have to hear it. When you read it, it’s a straight call.” Only it’s not the actual transcript, which we
How do you solve a problem like Sean Duffy? The former Republican congressman, who was hired by CNN to blindly defend Donald Trump while the impeachment process unfolds, is creating problems for the network by constantly fabricating facts and spreading reckless and dangerous conspiracy theories. And yes,
LOLGOP and I have a weekly podcast called “The Sit and Spin Room with LOLGOP & Eclectablog”. For next week’s episode, we are traveling to Flint, Michigan to do some reporting on the ongoing Flint Water Crisis. While we’re there, we’ll be interviewing activists Melissa Mays
I have decided to avoid the discussion of you know whom, about you know what, on DKos completely. I have also decided to avoid it all together on other diaries as the comments cannot be collapsed and I have seen things that should remain unseen,
