WHERE WE NEED TO BE SATURDAY IN CLEVELAND…

February 22nd, 2017

From Bernie Sanders and Our Revolution: These are tough times. The future of our country and planet are at stake. Our job: Fight Back. Donald Trump and his Republican friends thought it was going to be easy. They would get to Washington and ram through their agenda, taking health care away from 30 million Americans, […]

February 10th, 2017

Fast forward to 7:24 to get right to the debate. From Our Revolution: On Tuesday night, Senators Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz debated on CNN about Obamacare and the future of health care. Ted Cruz had a difficult time answering the questions posed to him on what Republicans would do if they repealed the Affordable […]

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 […]

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. Ralph Nader, writing in Tripwires for the Trumpsters, offers a taste of what he thinks is coming: The Trumpsters are coming to town—led by a failed gambling czar, corporate welfare […]

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. Seems we were not alone. Adam Gabbatt, reporting in Is Bernie Sanders’ Our Revolution over before it even began? for The Guardian writes: The next phase […]

BERNIE LAUNCHES OUR REVOLUTION TONIGHT…

August 24th, 2016

So, last evening I attended an informational meeting for the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus and, unlike a similar meeting I attended for MoveOn several election cycles ago, I was impressed. The crowd was small, about 32 or so, but the energy was good and people were articulately intelligent and informed. I walked away from MoveOn, […]
