Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse HRC has decided corporatist Virginia Senator Tim Kaine should be added too her short list of Veep picks. Her pick is widely viewed in Washington as a sign of her governing intentions. The former SoS has spent weeks attempting to woo progressive Bernie Sanders supporters. Choosing from one of the handful of names on her short list: Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) or Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) would signal that her camp is taking progressive concerns seriously. True Progressives are watching with a skeptical eye, concerned what the signal will be. … Continue reading →
I love this movement, the people, Bernie and his positive politics. For the first time in my life, I feel uninhibited, positive, highly motivated, and find my resolve strong and true. I love that so many of us are forever changing this year too. There is no going back on any of this! Despite all that has happened, there is Bernie doing what it takes to press onward. And here we are, changed, growing more potent, getting smarter, firm in our resolve, lucid and eager for more! We are FOR things rooted in genuine human need. Human need created by … Continue reading →
For those who’ve not seen this, a petition from Dr. Jill Stein: Google – stop censoring Jill Stein! On google, searching on ‘presidential candidates’ doesn’t include Jill or the Green Party, only Trump, Clinton, and Johnson. … Continue reading →
From an article he published in The Guardian, entitled “Obama Has Failed Victims of Racism and Police Brutality.” This paragraph is in the middle of the article: This November, we need change. Yet we are tied in a choice between Trump, who would be a neo-fascist catastrophe, and Clinton, a neo-liberal disaster. That’s why I am supporting Jill Stein. I am with her – the only progressive woman in the race – because we’ve got to get beyond this lock-jaw situation. I have a deep love for my brother Bernie Sanders, but I disagree with him on Hillary Clinton. I … Continue reading →
The Clinton-Sanders Unity Summit Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will formally declare an end to their political rivalry Tuesday, a moment that couldn’t come quickly enough for the former secretary of state trying to unite Democrats against Donald Trump. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, hopes to rev up voters on the left with help from Sanders. The 74-year-old self-described democratic socialist excited the liberal base and won young voters by large margins. The joint rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is a start in putting to rest Democratic fears of a political nightmare scenario: that Sanders might sit on his hands … Continue reading →
I imagine many of you are on this mailing list already, but incase you are not: Nina Turner is one of the most powerful voices in the progressive movement. A former Ohio State Senator, in 2014 she ran for Secretary of State with DFA’s strong support to reverse the attack on Ohio’s voting rights. Recently, she’s become a prominent spokesperson for Bernie Sanders. Nina is also a national leader in the fight to build a more reflective democracy based in economic and racial justice. Read on to see Nina draw attention to two very important campaigns involving voting rights and … Continue reading →

Say what you want about the political stripes of John Kass, Chicago Tribune columnist, I don’t care, but read his column. He says, and I think rightly so, and I suspect the majority of my fellow birdies here agree, that Hillary has disqualified herself for the presidency. Rather than lick our wounds because Comey declined to prosecute, it is time for honest progressives to say what we think needs to be done, in the near future, and beyond. Kass is particularly brutal, but brutally honest: The Republicans didn’t do this to her. The mad barbarian Donald Drumpf, ranting and shouting … Continue reading →
I am posting this for discussions sake (I borrowed @nomandates flame-retardant suit) and think the likelihood of such a scenario are about as slim as can possibly get but like I’ve said time and time again, I love a good discussion and hearing all your points of view. Plus I see a good deal of benefit to ‘Progressives’ in having the Green Party reach the thresholds for federal funding and debate participation. Green party’s Jill Stein invites Bernie Sanders to take over ticket Bernie Sanders has been invited to continue his underdog bid for the White House by the Green party’s probable … Continue reading →
Feeling the Bern, R.I. progressives forcing primaries Energized by Bernie Sanders’ decisive victory in Rhode Island, about a dozen progressives are challenging more conservative Democratic state legislators in September primaries . In Pawtucket and Providence, Warwick and West Warwick, progressives are lining up to challenge Democratic incumbents, bolstering the strongest field of “real Democrats” in years, said Samuel W. Bell, state coordinator of the Rhode Island Progressive Democrats. Wednesday marked the end of a three-day window for Rhode Islanders to declare their candidacies, and some of the challengers helped catapult Sanders to victory in the state’s April 26 primary. While … Continue reading →
Sanders: Democrats Need To Wake Up Surprise, surprise. Workers in Britain, many of whom have seen a decline in their standard of living while the very rich in their country have become much richer, have turned their backs on the European Union and a globalized economy that is failing them and their children. And it’s not just the British who are suffering. That increasingly globalized economy, established and maintained by the world’s economic elite, is failing people everywhere. Incredibly, the wealthiest 62 people on this planet own as much wealth as the bottom half of the world’s population — around … Continue reading →
