Love this idea from Mckibben. We need Amtrack Joe.


But taking advantage of that—saving America—requires two things

A clear and uncompromising stance on the filibuster. He needs to tell Americans in no uncertain terms that they should only vote for candidates who would ditch this archaic rule so that a Democratic congress could actually codify Roe, could actually enact sensible gun control (and not just the minimalist package of last week), could actually start rolling out (immensely popular) solar panels. Biden needs to say “I have served in the Senate most of my life. But the Senate is broken; it can’t defend what America wants from a berserk and out-of-control Supreme Court. We need control of the House, we need a real Senate majority that doesn’t depend on Joe Manchin, and we need that majority to matter.” You have to give people a reason to care; with the filibuster it’s business as usual.

A train. Biden needs to announce that in the 134 days between now and the November election he will not darken the door of the White House. Instead he and his advisors will board a train and criss cross America making the case for this republic. Biden famously loves trains. Americans love trains. And a train trip creates drama—suddenly he’s not a feeble politician mired with some of the lowest approval ratings in history. Suddenly he’s Harry Truman, waging an against-the-odds campaign in 1948. You know the last president to pull the presidential train car out of mothballs? A reasonably good politician named Ronald Reagan, in 1984. Amtrak Joe needs to go all-in.

This article is worth a read. It actually gave me hope and energy. If only Biden would do this!

Bipartisan bill aims to assert Congress's power over arms sales, emergencies and military operations


The trio behind the measure, Sens. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), have been longtime proponents of giving Congress a more proactive role in such matters. In recent years, they joined forces to invoke Congress’s war powers and bring an end to U.S. participation in Yemen’s civil war — an effort that secured majority support, but not enough to overcome then-President Donald Trump’s veto.

The new legislation on offer, however, goes much further — and as such, is likely to inspire heated debate..

Former Alumni of Warren for President endorsing Sanders


Click on link in tweet to read full statement.
We, the undersigned former employees and fellows of Warren for President, are ready to get back in the fight for a just and progressive future. We know that we need a bold, ambitious policy agenda for working families, marginalized communities, and our planet. We know that we won’t beat Donald Trump by simply talking about a return to business as usual. We hold these values close to our hearts because we’ve spent months talking about them with community members and volunteers in the field on behalf of Elizabeth Warren.
That’s why the best option for Warren Democrats right now is to support Bernie Sanders for President, in addition to fighting for Democratic victories across the board in Senate, House, and local races.

I Love This Article - if the Nation Was My Patient, Sanders Would Be My Prescription


Wealthy countries that prioritize relative financial equality have less depression, lower infant mortality, and fewer people suffering from drug addiction. They have greater social cohesion, more civic trust, and their children score higher on standardized academic tests. Great extremes in wealth and income, like we now have in our country, leads to a generalized societal dysfunction. We are not all in the same boat and we are painfully aware of that. The present-day extremes of income and wealth inequality in the United States even exceed those seen during the days of the robber barons.
I support Bernie Sanders because he has the most comprehensive plan to reverse the great wealth and income gap. Only by doing so will the health of our nation improve.
