The war in Gaza is a tragedy. Are American right-wingers somehow involved? There is some evidence it's true, as MOMocrat Karoli reports at Crooks and Liars.com. She and Donna Schwartz Mills examine what could be a pattern of collusion with conservative supporters of Israel, including a fabricated transcript of a purported discussion between President Obama and Netanyahu that is, as Karoli puts it, "right out of Karl Rove's strategy guide." Political discussion from the progressive point of view by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group.
Yesterday's ruling on Obamacare subsidies by a three-judge panel on the DC Court of Appeals was just a hiccup. That ruling was followed by a contradictory one, from the 4th Circuit Court that upholds subsidizing Federal exchange premiums. All of this judicial wrangling is illustrative of what happens when the Right can't get their way through legislative means -- but it also shows just how politicized our courts have become. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss politics from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
The news cycle has been dominated by the story the humanitarian crisis of immigrant children caught at our border, and public reaction has been something of a Rohrshach test: Do we rally to turn them away as the Mayor of Murrietta, CA did a couple of weeks ago? Or do we first offer shelter and aid to young people who are essentially refugees of gang violence? Also: The secret past of IRS official Lois Lerner and the initiative to break California into six separate states. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
RH Reality Check's legal expert Jessica Pieklo joins the MOMocrats to parse the Hobby Lobby decision and the rest of this year's session of the Supreme Court. Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills host this weekly political discussion from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
Last night's Republican runoff election between Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran and Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel has kept the political pundits busy -- and surprised, as Cochran squeezed out a victory, thanks to appeals to African-American Democrats and a well-run Get Out the Vote effort from Republican leaders like Haley Barbour. Too bad Cochran is such a sore loser. Other topics include this week's White House Summit on Working Families and what's been handed down by the Supreme Court.MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss politics from the progressive POV.

From February 2014: As surprising as it may seem, Rand Paul is actually getting some traction with the left, mostly by bootstrapping onto the NSA surveillance stories and advocating for restoration of felons’ voting rights. But don’t be fooled — those are just cynical ploys to attract people uninformed about who Rand Paul is and how close he is in ideology to his father, John Birch Society devotee Ron Paul.
We’re pleased to welcome back Claire Conner for the full hour. Claire is the author of Wrapped in the Flag, has an intimate understanding of what the right wing is doing in today’s political landscape, and has agreed to come back to the show to discuss Rand Paul, the Radical Right, and why liberals need to stop pretending they don’t matter.

In a week that saw more outbreaks of domestic terrorism, school shootings, continued faux outrage at the Bergdahl release -- a ray of political good cheer: Eric Cantor lost his primary bid for re-election. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills are no fans of David Brat, the Tea Party free-market economics professor who defeated Cantor... but they can't help enjoying a small moment of schadenfreude over this development in this week's political discussion from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
All around the country, in low-voter turnout elections everywhere, people are deciding who'll advance to mid-term elections in November. So did nice sane Democrats show up, or did we miss the boat again? And did Republicans show up with robotic regularity? We look at some local races from around the country and see what results were in California. Cynematic of K12NN, Karoli of Crooks and Liars, and Donna Schwartz Mills of SoCalMom break down the races.
National current events at the top of the hour and for the first 25 minutes, then primary races.

How many times can we say "never again" before it's true? And how do we end the cycle of violence when it is wrapped so tightly around misogyny and race? How do we keep guns out of killers hands? And how do we address this country's inadequacy of mental health care? MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli, Anoosh Jorjorian and Donna Schwartz Mills talk about the Isla Vista tragedy in this political discussion from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
Tip O'Neill famously said, "All politics is local." And the great man was right - because that school board member you elect today can be the Senator representing you tomorrow. Unfortunately, Democrats have a bad habit of focusing just on the big, national races and skipping their local elections. The result is lopsided representation that favors conservatives. Is it because older, retired citizens have more time to engage in civic duties? Or is it a result of today's test-heavy education practices that de-emphasize subjects like civics? At any rate, more Democrats need to become more involved at the local level because that is our only recourse against the onslaught of billionaire influence in the era of Citizens United. Guest Erin Kotecki Vest talks about her efforts to persuade her local school board to comply with California's FAIR Act (enacted two years ago and so far ignored by her school district). And Cynematic updates on primary races with an emphasis on education (and Common Core).

Yesterday's stunning NBA sanction against LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling occurred in record time after the recording of his racist rant went viral, once again proving the power of social media and the Internet. That was the impetus behind another meme that made the news this week, courtesy of the Heartland Institute. The problem is, they twisted the quote from revered comedian George Carlin so that it appeared he was endorsing their nihilistic anti-government point of view. And then the fun started. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills talk politics discussion from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
Yesterday, "Wise Latina" Sonia Sotomayor showed the Supreme Court and the nation why diversity matters. How long will it take for the Supremes to actually reflect the demographics of the United States? MOMocrats Karoli, Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills also talk about the progress of progressive women candidates this year, the stand-off on that ranch in Nevada -- and take on the sexist conspiracy theories over Chelsea Clinton's pregnancy. Political discussion from the progressive point of view by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group.
