Seventy percent of all Americans support the creation of a government-sponsored health care system. Last October, a team of progressive researchers did what the Democratic Party itself was unwilling and unable to do: they published “Autopsy: The Democratic Party in Crisis,” a critical dissection of what lead to the disastrous 2016 election defeat, which everyone, including Donald Trump, had assumed was going to be a solid Democratic win.“Doing an autopsy is a way of epitomizing or bringing forth the idea that we can't wait for leadership that's recalcitrant to do the right thing,” co-author Norman Solomon told Salon at the time. Now the team is back with a followup report, “Democratic Autopsy: One Year Later,” a narrative report card on how well the aarty has done in making the sorts of change the original autopsy proposed. It comes just a weeks ahead of the midterm elections, which most pundits will try to evaluate as a report card on how Democrats are doing in resp...

Most American voters generally don’t like billionaires and corporations running politics, so the GOP is simply not letting them vote. The Republican Party is currently hoping to win nationwide using two simple elements: explicit and overt racism, and voter suppression.No “ideas”; no pitch for tax cuts; no discussion of their “replacement” for the Affordable Care Act; no push for better schools, hospitals, airports, roads or bridges; no promise for more and better jobs—none of these staples of the 2016 presidential campaign can be found in pretty much any Republican advertising today.Instead, the public Republican message is all about race or the subset of race, religion (“Muslim” stands in for “brown Arab” in GOP-speak) and “immigration” (aka brown people from south of our border). Republicans across the country are even recruiting white supremacist and neo-Nazi gangs to threaten or assault Democrats and their supporters, while Trump praises the criminal a...

A new round of tensions between Russia and the United States has affected the treaty on medium and short-range missiles commonly known as the INF Treaty. US President Trump said that the United States would pull out from the agreement because it was Russia that did not abide by its obligations under the contract. Trump noted in his statement that Russia and the USA could still discuss the issue. In his speech, Trump also mentioned China, which is not part of the bilateral treaty. The INF Treaty was signed in 1987 by Reagan and Gorbachev in the wake of the "detente" policy. The signing of the treaty looked natural against the backdrop of NATO's promises of no expansion to the east. Therefore, it was short and medium range missiles that the USSR could use to strike Europe in case of a global war. For the US, such missiles were like spare tyres. As we know, NATO began expanding, and the USSR ceased to exist as a state.Russia started presenting its complaints to the USA in connection with...

CCTV footage has been released which appears to show one of the 15 so-called Saudi Arabian “hit squad” posing as a body double for murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The images, which were published by CNN on Monday, show the decoy leaving the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by the back door, wearing Mr Khashoggi's clothes, a fake beard, and glasses, in the hours after he was killed. The man has been identified as Mustafa al-Madani - an official who was reportedly brought from Riyadh to Turkey to act as Khashoggi’s body double. Four hours earlier Mr Madani, 57, who is of similar height, age and build to Khashoggi, entered the building by the front door, without a beard, wearing a blue and white checked shirt and dark blue trousers. "Khashoggi's clothes were probably still warm when Madani put them on," a senior Turkish official told CNN. Mr Khashoggi entered the consulate on October 2.

The business elite are preparing for doomsday. Many of the world’s richest seem to earnestly believe that some kind of apocalyptic “event” is coming, and have prepared accordingly. You might have read about this before — such as in the New Yorker’s deep dive back in January 2017 — but billionaire doomsday preppers are back in the news again thanks to a new viral article penned by professor and media theorist Douglas Rushkoff.

Guantanamo set the stage for the Kavanaugh hearings. Amid the emotional hubbub over the predictable confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, there has been a largely overlooked casualty: the American judiciary. It’s not the end result alone — his addition to the highest bench in the land where he will sit for life — that promises to damage the country, but the unprofessional, procedurally irresponsible way his circus-like hearings were held that dealt a blow to the possibilities for justice in America, a blow from which it may prove hard to recover.Senator Susan Collins acknowledged the damage the hearings wrought, even if she misunderstood the cause. Delivering her massively disappointing decision to vote yes on Kavanaugh, Collins reflected on what she saw as the passion that overrode the presumption of innocence and expressed “worry” that such behavior would lead to “a lack of public faith in the judiciary.” Though wrong in blaming the Democrats for those passions, her...
