Donald Trump’s elaborate plot to overthrow the democratically elected president was neither impulsive nor uncoordinated, but straight out of the playbook of another American coup attempt – the 1933 “Wall Street putsch” against newly elected Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Read the rest of the piece here.

Tepid Media, Yes – Liberal, Certainly Not

The media are but the piano player in a brothel. – unknown

“…of the 257 news/talk stations owned by the top five commercial station owners reveals that 91 percent of the total weekday talk radio programming is conservative, and 9 percent is progressive.” -The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio.

More dialogue on liberal messaging can be found here; conservative radio targets Latino communities too. Rush Limbaugh is no longer with us but the industry he created is alive and well, sadly..

Anyone know of any billionaire Liberals who might buy up some radio & TV networks for us to use?? It just might help to make activist folks’ job quite a bit easier.

Who Will Protect Social Security & Medicare?

Was there ever any doubt?

Unfortunately, MAGA Republicans have majority in the House. Their first order of business is to protect the interests of wealthy tax cheats.

So, onward we go.. The federal government is projected to hit the debt ceiling in the coming days. At that point, Congress must raise the debt limit, or else the United States will default on the debt, likely triggering a global recession.

With control of the House of Representatives, Republicans plan to create a fiscal crisis by holding the debt ceiling hostage unless President Biden and Senate Democrats agree to deep cuts in Social Security.

It’s important we keep the heat on our Representatives in Kings County – that means the new Speaker McCarthy (?) 202-225-2915 and Rep. Valadao, 202-225-4695. More to come..

Who’s On Your School Board?

How could this even be a discussion?

Daily Kos has an article which explains well the xenophobic tendencies of some in our society. “Unless we are consistent with efforts before there’s an incident to have the kind of measured conversations about race and racism, we’re never going to get out of this kind of cycle,” said Elaine Gross, with the group Erase Racism.
