2/21-23 News Roundup and Open Thread The Progressive Wing Posted on February 21, 2023 by jcityboneFebruary 23, 2023 Let’s start with a Bernie NPR interview about his new book.
I noticed with the commencement of the Iraq War that we could not afford to be complacent. With age, I’m more progressive than I was in college.
Clarence Thomas is dumber than a rock, and a traitor on top of it. SCOTUS is now a bench made in fascist heaven. So, what’s so surprising here? That Thomas claims the earth is flat? The moon is made out of green cheese? This is nothing compared to the idiot state I live in!
Behind Barfo Bezos’ paywall.
When is this nauseating and blatant stupidity going to end? 💩🤮
I doubt we live to see it Orl
I’m afraid you’re right wi64. You might, but I won’t.😥
Hopefully Lee and Porter don’t split the progressive vote, allowing Schiff and a Republican to be the top two in the primary.
I’ve always liked Barbara Lee, but I’m telling you all, her age is going hurt her. Katie Porter has one sure fact going for her. She knows how to court conservatives. And I don’t mean the BS DNC Pelousy/Schiff ones.
I would be surprised if Lee were in the top 2.
One of the vice-chairs of the CPC. I think he was stymied from rising in the House leadership. His district is the more progressive of RI’s two districts so hopefully someone good can replace him. Down the road, he could run for Senate when one of RI’s two moderate Dem senators retires. (Reed -73 and Whitehouse-67)
Yo can bet RI’s governor will ask his advice on his successor. It will be interesting to see who he backs. I hope he/she continues Cicilline’s work in going after the hi-tech monopolies.
Except for Evers, this is the potential slate of the 2028 DNC primaries. I’d add JB Pritzker and Andy Beshear.
How about 2024? A lot of Democratic and Indie voters plus the young crowd don’t want to vote for semi-senile Byedone. They’ll sit before they vote for a Repuke.
Unless Dark Brandon is very ill (cancer, stroke, etc) he’s already laying the groundwork for another run. So, no, I think Biden will run again, even if the polls aren’t in his corner at the moment. As we all know, the DNC has decided to ensure that SC will be the first primary state to give Biden an early win.
I’m not saying Biden is a shoo-in, except with the moderate and conservative Dems. It will depend if the GQP’s nominee can sway indies to vote for him/her.
I found the video of him toddering around in Ukraine like an infant learning to walk frightening! What are they using to keep him propped up? OMG!
Thank you, Senator! 🙂
T and R x 2, jcb!! 🙂 I found this Jimmy Carter tribute read by Thom Hartmann in my email this am. It’s actually quite good. Carter was the first POTUS I voted for. While more conservative than me, he wasn’t nauseating nor a liar. Compared to all the GOPuke and DNC/Turd Way crap ‘offered’ to us in the last 43 years, he’s akin to a saint. https://hartmannreport.com/p/jimmy-carter-reflects-the-best-of
Same here Orl, had just turned 18 in June of that election year -its one of those things you dont forget
No surprise. 💩
The suprise would of been that they decided to hear it
I’m glad to see Bernie appear on MSNBC with interviews from anchors besides Chris Hayes and Ali Velshi (although Velshi is very good and easy for Bernie to talk to). She’s a corporatist, although once in awhile, Wagner will throw a slight curve ball like Jake Tapper to challenge Dems. Bernie stays in his own lane.
Saw the Bernster today on Stephen Colbert’s late night show. Hubster watches it the next day. Audience was chanting his name, cheering, and listening. I thought where are the young politicos to follow in his shoes? I got a bit wistful.
What could of been SIGH!!!!!, To see an alternate time line where Bernie is President would be something to see!!!!!
No money for immigrants, but taxpayers have to foot the bill for his gross incompetence?
I have a better and cheaper solution: stick Paxton in jail.
McClellan projected to become first Black woman to represent Va. in Congress
I don’t believe she will be part of the Squad.
Why are nurses quitting? Ask the nurse no hospital will hire.
