There continue to be several fissures in the Democratic party as competing factions jockey for party positions and the future direction of the party. One of those fissures opened in dramatic fashion at the California Democratic party’s convention last weekend. We had a really good diary recounting a view from on the ground at the convention, where Los Angeles County chair Eric Bauman was elected to the state party chairmanship with a slender margin of 62 votes, out of over 3,000 cast. The saga continues because Bauman’s opponent, Kimberly Ellis has not conceded the election and there is a review underway:“I will not …Continue reading →

Grab one or more of 6 new TPW and C99 starter support images (or make your own) and start sharing them on the other places you hang out on the internet. Ask people that want to change America to join or at least donate. Personally ask people you know who understand the progressive revolution to join, share and promote. (note: remember to put links to this site in your text – and links are usually not allowed with images). Just be direct – that usually works. Personal appeals are best. Spend 5 minutes a day on this and you will be …Continue reading →
This was emailed to persons on the email list yesterday afternoon: Political pundits and the billionaire class are watching very closely to see what Bernie supporters do next. Some of them might be tempted to believe our political revolution is toast. They want our extraordinary phone banking, door knocking, and grassroots organizing efforts to stop. They want us to get discouraged. They want to vanquish our movement once and for all. We aren’t going to let that happen. That’s why, on the evening of August 24, we will kick off a new organization called Our Revolution with a major live …Continue reading →
Here is where we stand: Almost nothing has changed! Today marks the start of the next step in our revolution! I will flat out say it: a corrupt and fraud laden process beat us, but not by much! Bernie wants that roll call vote to remind people our ideas win! They win big! Remember that. This campaign made history! Nobody can take that from us. Corruption and an establishment willing to do anything to preserve it’s grip on our democracy is why Bernie is not running for POTUS. We didn’t lose fair and we did not lose square either. Remember …Continue reading →

In a car but just saw Bernie’ s latest email. The phrase “successor organizations” is music to my ears. We have so much more to accomplish together. Bernie Sanders for President I am writing you today to express my deep pride in the movement – the political revolution – you and I have created together over the last 15 months. When we began this historic campaign, we were considered fringe players by the political, economic and media establishment. Well, we proved them wrong.We showed that the American people support a bold, progressive agenda that takes on the billionaire class, …Continue reading →
Thomas Paine is one of my long time political heroes (literally since i was like 8 years old…) and I ran across this video earlier and figured I’d share. Take in mind it is from 2014, but it is is still quite relevant, if not more so now than even then.
When someone hijacks your car, it’s not car suppression. When someone hijacks your vote, it’s thievery. And voter “suppression” and news suppression have to go together — because if you’re stealing votes, you gotta keep it quiet! Acclaimed actor and filmmaker Tim Robbins, actress and activist Rosario Dawson, and investigative reporter Greg Palast joined forces at UCLA on Tuesday, May 10 to discuss the vote theft and media silence rampant in the 2016 election. The problem is it isn’t just this election — we can’t make change in this country unless we get our votes back!!!

Calling all Birdies! Regardless of who you are planning on voting for in November, we must unite to stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)! When presidential candidates across party lines are on record as being against a piece of legislation–you know it shouldn’t pass (see positions Clinton (D), Sanders (D), Trump(R) and Stein (G)). Nevertheless, on Friday June 24th, a majority of members of the Democratic National Convention drafting committee rejected a statement of opposition citing a desire not to be at odds with President Obama. While Sanders renewed pressure on the Democratic Party to oppose the TPP in its platform …Continue reading →
