NEWS:

Brenda Lawrence Supports Impeachment. The Trump Administration is challenging the power of a separate, yet equal branch of government, a precedent established by our Founding Fathers centuries ago. The House of Representatives has been hard at work in the 116th Congress passing landmark legislation, but President Trump continues to stand in the way of conducting meaningful oversight of his administration. I believe that we must launch an impeachment inquiry to fulfill our constitutional duties. No one is above the law, not even the President. More from Congresswoman Lawrence here.

With antisemitism on the rise, criticism of Israel fuels political charges of hate. There is also a separate fight over antisemitism, one that is largely political. It equates rhetoric that some deem as insensitive with antisemitism and questions, along partisan lines, whether criticism of Israel's treatment of Palestinians under its control is fair. And it sees Republicans smearing Democrats with claims of antisemitism, even in cases where there is little or no evidence to back it up. At freep.com.

The False Debate Over Socialism in the US. During my business career I learned how misleading the labels "socialism" and "capitalism" are. All modern economies are a mix of both, and the U.S. is about as socialist as everybody else. When we argue socialism vs. capitalism in the context of the U.S. we're pretty much arguing whether to turn the thermostat up or down, not whether we should rip out the furnace. My observation is Western countries tend to have as much socialism as they can afford. When the bill gets too high, they dial it back. The real issue is what our tax money is spent on. See the full article in Newsweek.

Nancy Pelosi Has Chosen Her War, and It's With Her Own Party's Future. It is time for liberals and leftists who lambast Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to admit to themselves that the hippie-punching Pelosi has become a Trump enabler too. Full article here.

Donald Trump hates democratic socialism because it benefits working people, but he loves corporate socialism that enriches billionaires. See Bernie Sanders video here.

From the Bill Maher show: The Republicans have a spine and no principles, the Democrats have principles but no spine.

Key American Allies in the Middle East Are the Real Tyrants. You need only look to the Middle East to see a genuine all-American troika of tyranny. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the military junta in Egypt, and the colonizing state of Israel -- all countries that eschew real democracy and are working together to rain chaos on an already unstable region.

BIDEN KNOWS that after spending billions of tax dollars to establish the foundation of the ACA (Obamacare), that even with Trump's (and the Republican Congress) efforts to destroy the ACA healthcare for 20 million Americans, it still LIVES, because Americans want it. He also knows that for this existing culture of healthcare in America, the SPH (Single Payer Healthcare) is not anywhere as popular as ACA for many reasons. More from Jerry at wbldems.blogspot.

I urge everyone to read this whether you or Jewish or not. You will see a striking similarity between our countries. One glaring example is how both Trump and Netanyahu want to circumvent their Supreme Court. Linda. See: Who Is a Bigger Threat to His Democracy: Bibi or Trump?.

To sum up the week for House Democrats: no oversight of the rape allegation against the president, no protections for abused immigrant children, a hearing on tax cuts for millionaires and a request that Trump officials deregulate big banks. Democrats did pass a bill trying to guard voting systems from foreign intrusion. But at the moment, it appears the most serious threat to the party's electoral future is coming from inside the House. Tanya

See the Legacy of the Trump Presidency at wbldems.blogspot. And the repugnant republicans in Congress still back him. This list should be sent to each one of them. Jan
