After the Election Disaster: Back to Basics

Norman Solomon: We need to build a grassroots progressive movement — wide, deep and strong enough to fight the right and challenge the corporate center of the Democratic Party.

Top “Tossup” House Race for Progressives: Raul Grijalva

Norman Solomon: Demagogues in the Republican Party, and their Democratic allies, will say this is about amnesty and open borders. No matter how many times they repeat it, it won’t be true.

Republicans Go to the Bench

Like Mega Bucks Meg Whitman, Damon Dunn has not participated in the electoral politics, having voted only one time in his life. Despite his lack of credentials, he is a darling of the Republican Party

Taking the Fight to Orange County

Clockwise upper left: Bill Hedrick, Beth Krom, Phy Nguyen, XXXX, Loretta Sanchez

Despite minimal support from the Democratic Party leadership, Orange County has great potential to fare well in the November elections. The Obama 2008 campaign did better in Orange County than any other Democratic presidential candidate in history, raising eyebrows among some party activists.

marcy winograd rally

Marcy Winograd: my JOBS, NOT WARS campaign against Jane Harman in today’ Democratic Party primary centers around connecting the dots between the trillions we spend on war and the money denied for sustainable job creation, affordable housing, strong public education, and quality health care for all.

Jim Dean Sorta Kinda Supports Marcy Winograd

Jim Dean

David Swanson: Marcy Winograd is a stand-out. She’s is campaigning against Congresswoman Jane Harman, a wealthy warmonger corporatist who has been caught conspiring against her nation with foreign agents, who suppressed the warranteless spying story until George W. Bush could get a second term in office, and who has referred to herself proudly as “the best Republican in the Democratic Party.” Marcy Winograd, on the other hand, has been a leader of Progressive Democrats of America and has perhaps the smartest and most progressive platform in the country. She also garnered 38% last time, with no help.

Marcy Winograd: Jobs Not Wars

Marcy Winograd

Marcy Winograd: Ultimately, we have to ask what the Democratic Party stands for? Who will it endorse? Someone who rushes us to war, covers up illegal wiretapping, and votes with Wall Street to make it easier for banks to foreclose? Or someone committed to global diplomacy, the Bill of Rights, and an end to run-away greed ?

Kucinich a Phony Liberal Leprechaun

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio)

Ed Rampell: Kucinich’s March 17 capitulation two days after flying with President Obama aboard Air Force One to his Ohio district reveals Kucinich’s true colors and shows he’s running true to form. Kucinich’s eyebrow-raising healthcare flip-flop, like his presidential campaigns, raises the question: How Left is Left?

Glenn Beck on Woolsey, Harman and Winograd

Glenn Beck weighs in on the congressional race in California against Marcy Winograd and Jane Harman

Single-Payers Crashing the Gates

Marcy Winograd and Seniors

One of the many frustrations for advocates of single-payer health care is the relentless drive to marginalize us, not only by conservatives but also by members of our own party. Case in point: the accounting arm of Congress, the Congressional Budget Office, has yet to perform a financial analysis of the cost of implementing single [...]

A Progressive Challenge to Jane Harman

Jane Harman and Marcy Winograd

There are many reasons why progressives will mobilize behind the campaign of Marcy Winograd, who announced on Monday that she’ll challenge incumbent Congresswoman Jane Harman in the 2010 Democratic primary. Some will speak of Harman’s pro-war record. Some will recall her support for warrantless wiretapping, followed by her irony-free indignation when it turned out that [...]

Denver: Your Protestors Should Be Greeted with Flowers!!

At the very core of patriotism is the desire to preserve and enhance democracy.

Yellow Doggin’ It in D’Town

Thunderheads roiled the Rockies surrounding D’Town. Surging through the 16th Street mall came the massed and masked desperadoes, demanding an end to the war and the empire. Closely watched and nervously corralled by every conceivable form of police and paramilitary squad on the alert for reported low tech weapons of mass destruction – round and [...]

Momentum Building For Bugliosi’s Case Against George W. Bush For Murder

Vincent Bugliosi

For Vincent Bugliosi, one of America ‘s foremost prosecutors and authors, George W. Bush’s purposeful crime of misleading America into war is a vile, despicable and prosecutable act. It angers Bugliosi deeply. So much so that he’s written a new book, The Prosecution Of George W. Bush For Murder. To be clear, this is not [...]

Have We Forgotten About Iraq?

Vietnam Battle Field

Now slogging through its sixth bloody year, America’s invasion and occupation of Iraq is much on my mind this Saturday afternoon. On the television in the next room, the Democratic Party’s Rules and Bylaws Committee ponders the Florida and Michigan delegations, just now reaching its compromise.

How I Intend to Spend My $600 Stimulus Package Allowance

Later this week, each taxpayer in this country will be receiving their portion of the economic stimulus package that was passed by what can only be described as the combined stupidity, irresponsibility, and corruption of our executive and legislative branches. Granted there were those who tried valiantly to craft a just and effective package but [...]

Marcy Winograd and Ron Kovic

One hundred and ten Progressive Democrats of America members and their guests filled the center section of the Nuart Theater in Los Angeles for the premiere of Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro’s new film, “Body of War.” It was a sold-out house and a very special evening for everyone lucky enough to have gotten their [...]
