Imagine a Democratic President Who Fought As Hard for the Left As Trump Does For the Right

Donald Trump is keeping his campaign promise to build a border wall between the US and Mexico, even shutting down the government. Imagine if the Democrats were as aggressive.

On “Likability”

Weird, you seem to have the same objections about every woman politician!

Cartoon: 'Unlikable'

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 08/01/2019 - 11:50pm in

There was a debate last week over the suggestion that Elizabeth Warren may face the same "likability" issues as Hillary Clinton. I would argue that the idea of "likability" for a female candidate is problematic, as it fails to address the very real social context in which female authority figures are seen as less likable than their male peers. This piece on NBC does a pretty good job of explaining the issue.

Regarding Warren, I'd suggest that the fair question to ask is not "Is she likable?" but rather, "Can America overcome its sexism and anti-intellectualism enough to vote for her?" I wish I could confidently say yes, but I'm not so sure, despite the success of female candidates in the midterms. The authoritarian wave sweeping the world is very much a reassertion of traditional ideas about masculinity. I say all of this as a big fan of Elizabeth Warren, who has always felt like an alter ego if I’d gone to law school. I even dressed up as her for Halloween once.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Picture credit to: The Daily Beast.   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a young Democrat MP who has recently included basic income in a Resolution about climate change (coined the “Green New Deal”), has also mentioned it at a Netroots Nation event in August 2018. The mention is very brief and grouped with “universal college, education, trade school [and a] Federal

United States: Democrats add basic income to a climate change addressing plan

It started on Tuesday, 13th of November 2018, with a 200 large committee of environmental activists (Sunrise Movement) crowding Nancy Pelosi’s office premises at the Capitol Building. The activists called upon Pelosi, the Democrats House speaker, to push for a real, ambitious and wide-reaching plan to curb climate change. That alone would probably amount to little as far as media

Cartoon: Things you don't hear after a Democratic wave

While I've seen some news stories about women voters, there's been nowhere near the same adulation and obsessive fawning as there was over male Trump voters in 2016. The very notion of "authenticity" is gendered male, and Dem-voting women are not seen as "real" Americans by many in the media.

Green Zone Amerika – The Phony Electoral Scam

Phillip Farruggio After our nation illegally/immorally invaded and destroyed much of Iraq, we set up a mega city for our new embassy. The Bush gang named it ‘The Green Zone’, a fortified city in itself. The invaders/occupiers were able to keep most of the angry insurgents away from it, as our corporate predators made a meal out of the reconstruction of a once vibrant and economically solvent sovereign nation. Forget about the fact that we got rid of Saddam Hussein, as he was just another one in the long line of gangster thugs that our empire placed in power years earlier. Well, this Two Party/One Party empire has succeeded in their plans for my beloved country. They created, over the span of decades, a Feudal Green Zone for their plunder and pillage. Yes, Lincoln may have freed the slaves, but he or no other leader we have had was willing or able to free the serfs. Our embedded politicians from both parties, with the aid of the embedded mainstream media, have made sure of that. …
