The Socialist Truck Driver Running For Congress On A Green New Deal. Joshua Collins, 25, is making a long-shot bid to unseat Rep.

Fearful Democrats and the False Allure of Policy Centrism. The current front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, Joe Biden, is basing his candidacy on the proposition that he will be able to win over significant numbers of Republican voters, once they see that he's more moderate than other Democrats and realize what a repellent human being Donald Trump is. The only problem with that theory is that there is no reason to believe it's true. Full story here.

Share Thoughts and Opinions on FEEDBACK:

From the day tRUMP got elected we all asked whether there is even one Republican in Congress who would call out this despicable man. There are 53 Republican senators and about 195 Republican congressmen. Finally there is one. Justin Amash from Grand Rapids marches to his own drummer. More from Richard at wbldems.blogspot.com.

Our government continues to bully nations around the world with devastating consequences to their populations and creates more enemies while Congress and the media continue to ignore reality. As Ilhan Omar said earlier when questioning Eliot Abrams, why do we believe you when you have already been convicted of lying to Congress! Tanya. See link democracynow.org.

To impeach or not to impeach, that is the question. More from Richard here.

Biden entering the race tells us at least four things: (1) No one supporting him has a problem with septugenarian candidates. (2) The establishment and the donor class want a nominee dependent on their money, connections, and infrastructure. (3) The Party establishment and the donor class aren't confident anyone already in can beat Sanders. (4) Establishment Democrats don't have a strategy to defeat Trump, they're just going to re-run the 2016 Clinton campaign. Knowing it's a losing strategy. Liano Sharon

The magistrate is likely a Republican appointee. We're in for decades of similar rulings because of the 100's of bench appointments approved in the two years Republicans controlled the WH & H & S. That's why I cannot forgive Bernie Sanders for the campaign he ran against Hillary. Sanders is hugely responsible for Trump's election. Jeanne. See story here
