March 26th, 2017

First up this morning, Trevor Timm on Everyone loves Bernie Sanders. Except, it seems, the Democratic party.

March 11th, 2017

I wrote too late, but in the immortal words of Senator Jame Blutarsky, Nothing is over until we decide it is, so I’ll forgive the editors at The Guardian and welcome them to the resistance.

From Bernie Sanders, the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus and Our Revolution: These are tough times. The future of our country and planet are at stake. Our job: Fight Back.

OUR REVOLUTION IS NOT A DEFENSIVE FIGHT…

February 6th, 2017

Jonathan Freedland’s First on the White House agenda—the collapse of the global order. Next, war? for The Guardian was recommended to me by someone whose opinions I esteem. Freedland’s litany of existential threats rising from the presidency of Donald John Trump—and Trump’s Gríma Wormtongue Steve Bannon in particular—are real. …Steve Bannon, the man rapidly emerging […]

CCPC: A HEAVY POLITICAL AGENDA STARTING 2017…

December 31st, 2016

The lineup of social action/political events for progressives in Cuyahoga County over the next two months is nothing short of jaw-dropping amazing. One of my 2015 predictions (and, frankly hopes) for the years to follow the election of Donald Trump as President of The United States of America, was that President Trump would energize progressives […]

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER 20 JANUARY 2017…

December 27th, 2016

As I predicted months ago, the inauguration of Donald John Trump as president of The United States Of America will galvanize Americans behind Our Revolution.

WHY WE NEED BERNIE SANDERS MORE THAN EVER…

December 15th, 2016

Bernie didn’t go away. Bernie voters didn’t go away (I’m working on a longer piece on that topic right now).

THE POLITICAL BETRAYAL OF THE 99% CONTINUES…

September 21st, 2016

I wrote earlier that party platforms are not worth the paper they’re written on and once again Hillary Clinton demonstrates that you can’t trust her any further than you can toss a wonk. Karl Mathiesen, writing in Hillary Clinton ‘dropped climate change from speeches after Bernie Sanders endorsement’ for The Guardian, tells us: Hillary Clinton […]

SORRY BERNIE, NONE OF THAT WILL HAPPEN…

September 19th, 2016

I respect Bernie Sanders. I think that Bernie is the closest we’ve come in a very long time to what I think a progressive politician should be. I do not doubt that Bernie is focused on stopping the election of Donald Trump by supporting the deeply flawed candidacy of Hillary Clinton. I am confident that […]

OUR JEFF WEAVER’S REVOLUTION…?

August 27th, 2016

I attended a watch party Wednesday evening and I was underwhelmed. Already people were comparing notes and asking question whether or not Our Revolution would live up the name.
