NEWS:

Chomsky: By Focusing on Russia, Democrats Handed Trump a "Huge Gift" & Possibly the 2020 Election. The Democrats invested everything in this issue. Well, turned out there was nothing much there. They gave Trump a huge gift. In fact, they may have handed him the next election. That's just a matter of being so unwilling to deal with fundamental issues, that they're looking for something on the side that will somehow give political success. At democracynow.org.

Congress Is Sabotaging Your Post Office . The Postal Service was once one of the world's most impressive institutions. Here's how to make it thrive again. At washingtonmonthly.com.

'I Felt Americans Needed to Know': Insurance Industry Whistleblower Gives Glimpse of Effort to Crush Medicare for All. "The business model of for-profit health insurance depends on denying care to people who need it. These corporations can't be reasoned with, only defeated." More here.

Joe Biden Is Hillary Clinton 2.0 - Democrats Would Be Mad to Nominate Him. The bigger issue, however, is that there is no question for the Democrats in 2020 to which Biden is the answer. Have they really learned no lessons from three years ago? More here

Progressives Refuse to Back Down as DCCC Moves to Kneecap Primary Challengers. Progressives made clear they have no intention of backing down to the party establishment after the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Friday threatened to cut off funds to firms and strategists that support primary challengers against incumbents. More here. Ocasio-Cortez Tells Small Donors to Cut Off DCCC Donations, Give Directly to Candidates Instead: "The DCCC's new rule to blacklist + boycott anyone who does business with primary challengers is extremely divisive and harmful to the party."

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.

Very disappointing to see such a poor grasp of a complex situation from a guy who is pitched as really smart. It's another significant indication of an authoritarian worldview. Liano Sharon. See article about Pete Buttigieg and Israel here

I know the word "socialism" has come up in several discussions with members of this group. As the article says, most of those opposing socialism are of my generation who grew up during the Cold War. This article has an interesting take on it. Tanya. Article here
