Capitalism Produced Trump: Another Reason to Move Beyond It

 

Richard D. Wolff, Truthout: Capitalism’s problems and difficulties have produced the contorted politics of the Trump period, and in the coming months we can expect more of the instability, inequality and injustice that’s endemic to the system. But exchanging the Trump-Bannon regime for a "normal" capitalism will return us precisely to the system that produced Trump and Bannon in the first place. …..Read the Article

The Human Body Has Become a Political Battleground, Again

 

Nicholas Powers, The Indypendent: Many of us live in a state of fear. One hard illness, and we could be rolled on a gurney to a hospital; we’ll be saved, but at a cost we can’t afford. Obamacare only protects some of us. If we don’t have it, then hospital bills come like weights that pull us into poverty.  ..Read the Article

Mitch McConnell, holding a lit fuse and a match, says Democrats are making him blow up the Senate

 

By Joan McCarter  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to play his favorite game—Democrats made me do it—on the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. He’s already decided he’s going to end the use of the filibuster on nominees to the high court, and the Democrats will make him do it.

The Hill  Don’t look now: Hillary’s back

 

But March represented a turning point as Clinton ratcheted up her opposition to Trump on Twitter and made three public speeches.

With her new rallying cry of “Resist, persist, insist, enlist,” Clinton is keeping up her fight against Trump while giving Democrats space to find a new person to carry the torch in 2020.

“She’s always been someone who gets out there and fights for what she thinks is right,” one former Clinton campaign staffer told The Hill.

“She’s striking an appropriate balance. She still has an appreciation that she’s not the face of the Democratic Party and people don’t want her to be … but having worked for her and having seen how hard she fights, I’d be disappointed if she spent the rest of her career in the woods.”

Why shouldn’t federal contracts be posted online?

POSTED AT 10:41 AM ON APRIL 3, 2017 BY JAZZ SHAW

Back in the boring world of federal regulations there is a proposal currently on the board to have all the contracts for all bids awarded by the federal government put online in a searchable database. Given that we’re talking about taxpayer dollars being spent on projects approved by your legislators, this strikes me as a fairly simple and easy to approve idea, no? Some of our regular readers should brace themselves, because it’s a bill proposed and sponsored by two Democrats, but I’d ask you not to reject it out of hand simply on that basis. In terms of regulatory maneuvers, this is about as benign as they come. But as Government Executive reveals this week, an organization representing many of the largest contractors is pushing back against it.
