Russiagate Shows the Democrats’ True Corporate, Warmongering Colors

GLEN FORD—So, when The Week shouts that Bernie Sanders has “conquered” the Democrats, because a number of his potential competitors, including abject corporate servants like Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, have endorsed the idea of Medicare-for-all and the party is now thinking “big” — think again. Wall Street will force a split in the Democratic Party rather than allow its supplicants to press for a true single payer health care bill or a federal job guarantee. And a split is exactly what is needed.

Democrats Prepare to Pimp The Left Again in 2018 and 2020

BRUCE DIXON—Tens of thousands of grassroots activists stumped for Barack Obama in 2007 and 2008 hoping they’d see single payer health care enacted.

The New Yorker’s Days as Something to Look Up to Are Over

P. GREANVILLE—By running imperial shill Joshua Yaffa’s insidious screed, Russia’s “Madman” Routine in Syria May Have Averted Direct Confrontation with the U.S., For Now, and similar pieces, at a moment when humanity stands on the edge of the abyss of nuclear war, or at least an unthinkably devastating Word War 3, not to mention endorse the further sociopathic mutilation of a nation brutally  attacked and already devastated by a conglomeration of powerful bullies, the New Yorker editors relinquished their enviable place in journalism’s high brow precincts and toppled their own publication off of the pedestal it sat, virtually unchallenged, for many years.
