Republicans across the country have responded to midterm defeats by trying to undo democracy. What can stop them? In the wake of the 2018 “blue wave,” we’re now seeing a “red tide” of anti-democratic power-grabs -- strategies, tactics and rationales designed to deny the will of the voters — not just in Wisconsin, but in Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, Maine and elsewhere.In mid-November, Salon’s Igor Derysh reported on GOP efforts to rush unpopular laws through three state legislatures: Rolling back minimum wage raises and paid sick leave protections in Michigan, a new new voter-ID requirement in North Carolina, and restricting Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers’ executive powers in Wisconsin. But the picture has darkened considerably since then, both within these three states and beyond. The power grab politics we’re seeing fall into three main categories:In Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, and North Carolina lame -uck legislatures are engaged in overriding will of...

‘They are deliberate efforts to undermine democracy and our faith in it. What Republican legislators just did in Wisconsin – passing bills to strip key powers from the governor-elect, Tony Evers, and other newly elected Democratic officials – is a total betrayal of the people of Wisconsin and our nation’s democratic ideals. Michigan is passing a similar set of bills and North Carolina Republicans are accused of paying someone to steal absentee ballots and commit election fraud for a US House candidate.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) made a mistake recently when he announced that he wouldn’t vote to confirm Tom Farr for a federal district court slot in North Carolina. This was after Scott voted in favor of cloture for Farr, which advanced his nomination to the floor for an actual vote, in a 50-50 tie that had to be broken by Vice President Mike Pence. The actual vote on the confirmation has not yet been scheduled, but Scott should reconsider his decision. It’s clear that Scott has been deceived by the slanderous, false charges being made against Farr by activist, left-wing lawyers who want to stop his confirmation. In a statement announcing his opposition, Scott said it was due to Farr’s involvement in a “controversial postcard campaign” by the 1990 Jesse Helms senate campaign, and an internal 1991 Department of Justice memorandum that described what happened and recommended a lawsuit against the Helms campaign for violating the Voting Rights Act. The facts, however, do not show that...

The myth is more entertaining in a way. It is hard to fly in the face of history. Even harder when you are dealing with historical icons. We like to believe in our historical myths and are loathe to rethink what we have believed most of our lives. Miss O’Learys cow probably did not really start the Chicago fire and Elliott Ness and the Untouchables were not the men who brought Al Capone to justice. And it wasn’t the Wright Brothers who cracked the code of human flight, but one brother, Wilbur Wright, who is the man primarily responsible for the fact we can get on a jetliner and fly into the heavens. When you read a biography of the Wright Brothers there is a standard format. First, they are adjoined as two brothers who act as one. They both became interested in a toy helicopter their father brought home when they were children. Then they both started a printing press, a bike shop, then they both became fascinated with solving the problem of human flight. They both went to K...

Trump and the Republicans believe they’re entitled to rule, democracy be damned. It’s a deeply dangerous moment You can tell a lot about a person by how they react to "A Few Good Men," the 1992 movie starring Jack Nicholson as a corrupt Marine and Tom Cruise as the noble young military lawyer who takes him down. The movie has a famous scene where Nicholson's character, Col. Nathan Jessup, explodes in rage after being exposed for his part in the killing of a young Marine and subsequent cover-up. "You can't handle the truth!" he barks, while raving about how hard his job is and how he feels this entitles him to do the awful things he did.The screenwriter, Aaron Sorkin, isn't known for his subtlety. I always thought that Jessup was clearly the villain, an imperious monster who is lashing out like a cornered rat. But no -- apparently there are a lot of people who read Jessup as a hero for standing up against those namby-pamby "rule of law" liberals and for the belief that...

Some right-wing craziness that occurred this week. Rep. Mia Love claims it was racist for Democrats to defeat her.With the election loss of Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) to Democratic Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams, the incoming House GOP caucus will now have exactly zero women of color.And in a new interview on "The View," Love, the daughter of Haitian-American immigrants, argued that this somehow proves Democrats are racist. Why? Because they ran a candidate against her and won."We're not going to let Democrats off the hook, because I was actually targeted by Democrats. They targeted me because I am a black female Republican. And they replaced me with a middle-aged white male in the state of Utah."OMG she is saying that the Democrats are the *real* racists because they tried to get rid of all the diversity in the Republican party by ousting her and Carlos Curbelo. pic.twitter.com/3tlYAOmEyM— Chris Evans (@notcapnamerica) December 7, 2018It should go without saying that targeting a...
