Frank Fear: How many of these ‘aging superstars’ are unwilling to step out of the spotlight?
Wouldn’t Trump out of office much less Sanders or Warren in office not only benefit all humanity and a good part of the biosphere to boot, but also the Green Party?
Norman Solomon: Much of the energy behind the Sanders campaign is generated by what corporate media outlets often criticize or mock—Bernie’s consistency as he keeps denouncing massive income inequality and corporate power.
Buddy Bell: Republican state officials around the country are maneuvering to enact policies that would likely depress the vote of poor people, students, and people of color
Kathleen Wallace: Now she has reinvented herself as a populist, but won’t even talk out against Biden, the man from Creditcardlandia. She’s a promiscuous virgin, a carnivorous vegan.
Progressives cannot afford to give any more aid and comfort to the forces behind corporate contenders Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg, or the plutocratic $54 billion man Michael Bloomberg waiting in the wings.
WJ Astore: He has the best chance of defeating Trump, but his dedication to people over corporations and profits makes him an anathema to establishment Democrats.
Steve Hochstadt: It’s been confusing, but delightful to see so many serious and skilled people with the most diverse identities making a serious run at the Presidency.
CK Sanders: The take down strategy? “Operation: Mock, Reject & Omit.” This was a master hit job — cruel, relentless and paid for until victorious.
Reynard Loki: In his new solo performance piece “The Truth Has Changed,” the “Gasland” director Josh Fox raises an alarm: The Democrats are ill-prepared for Trump’s oncoming misinformation campaign.
Norman Solomon: Eager to hedge their bets, Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg have offered merely tactical critiques of President Trump’s decision to kill Qassim Suleimani.
William J. Astore: Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who truly gets how rigged our system is — how it’s become an oligarchy, even a kleptocracy, that favors the richest and most powerful among us.
Norman Solomon: They’re incapable of giving a coherent and truthful account of power in the United States because they’re beholden to corporate-aligned donors.
