NEWS:

NYT's Expose on the Lies About Burning Aid Trucks in Venezuela Shows How U.S. Government and Media Spread Pro-War Propaganda. The New York Times published a detailed video and accompanying article proving that this entire story was a lie. The humanitarian trucks were not set on fire by Maduro's forces. They were set on fire by anti-Maduro protesters who threw a molotov cocktail that hit one of the trucks. And the NYT's video traces how the lie spread: from U.S. officials who baselessly announced that Maduro burned them to media outlets that mindlessly repeated the lie. At nytimes.coml.

Ilhan Omar throws shade at Obama: 'We don't want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished'. "We can't be only upset with Trump. His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was". Omar noted the "caging of kids" at the U.S.-Mexico border and the "droning of countries around the world", for which Trump has been criticized, happened on Obama's watch too. At yahoo.com.

Joe Biden's Biggest 2020 Problem Is Joe Biden. Despite cultivating a populist image, the former vice president has spent his career championing policies favored by Republicans and the corporate elite. Full article here.

If Trump was gone tomorrow it wouldn't change systemic injustices. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at the Sundance Film Festival said "This is not just about the president of the United States. He could be gone tomorrow and that will not change the systemic injustices that led to his election, so it's important that we continue to be all hands on deck for our democracy in this fight." More here. AOC is right. If Trump were gone tomorrow we would still have: a dysfunctional health system, crumbling infrastructure, unaffordable education, massive inequality, a predatory banking system and endless war.

In "Beautiful Country Burn Again" Ben Fountain writes about our political climate and the 2016 election. "The people want change. We've been sucking wind for 35 years while the One Percent rides higher and higher, a trend that began with the "Reagan Revolution", a sea change in American politics that the Democratic establishment accepted all too readily. Trump's campaign spoke to our economic fear and anger with a rawness that Clinton's didn't even try to match."

Ralph Nader: Democrats may be surrendering the rule of law. One would think that Senate Democrats would be appalled at Barr's long time unyielding conduct and writings asserting that the President can start any wars he wants even if Congress votes against it! There is much Barr's secretive, corporatist, anti-consumer, labor, and environmental record to get the Senate Democrats dander up and throw down the gauntlet. But, no, they prefer to be polite and in so doing let the American people down. More here

Bipartisan Group of Senators Pushes Bill to Punish Boycotts of Israel Amid Shutdown. The legislation would give states and localities more legal authority to punish companies that participate in the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The bill is co-sponsored by Gary Peters (Mich.)and Debbie Stabenow (Mich.). At commondreams.org.

Share Thoughts and Opinions on FEEDBACK:

Most of these Democratic challengers for the 2020 presidential nomination are using the "Obama" playbook. Which is: you are smart, personable, articulate, a "fresh" face (i.e. you don't have a long track record people can nail you on), you are chummy with big donors, and you are able to fool voters into thinking you will make a meaningful change in their lives.

Like most of you, I hope that Howard Schultz does not run for President. We have had enough of billionaire businessmen running for President. Being President of the US is a different animal than being Chairperson or President of a business. We have also had enough of Presidential candidates having no political experience. Politics is far different from business. Except for health care, Howard Schultz had not said anything about his plans. So, if he was to win the election, we have no idea of his plans for governing. Howard Lederman
