SORT BY Relevancy
As the MOMocrats prepared for this week's podcast, news was still unfolding in Paris, which was under lockdown again after a raid looking for the mastermind of Friday's horrific terrorist attack. It's been reported that two people have died, including a woman wearing a suicide vest. Needless to say, US political discourse in the wake of ISIS has turned to the topics of foreign policy, terrorism, and immigration - areas that are in the bailiwick of the Democratic front-runner, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills talk with Joanne Bamberger, author of "Love Her, Love Her Not: The Hillary Paradox."
Republicans were a lot happier with last night's Fox Business Channel debate than they were with the session they had at CNBC. That's largely because the moderators never tried to challenge the candidates on the outrageous lies they told. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills have a few things to say about that on this Veterans Day edition of MOMocrats MOMochat, looking at the day's political news from the progressive point of view.

The Progressive Agenda didn't fare well in yesterday's off-year elections, but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the candidates Democrats ran or the policies they pursue. Election 2015 followed the typical pattern of the last few cycles, where conservatives angered by the progressive victories of the last year were motivated to show up to the polls ... and the people who typically vote for Democrats did not. This is why Republican Matt Bevin won the Kentucky governorship, despite polling that suggested the election would go to his Democratic opponent, Attorney General Jack Conway.
And once again, MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills ask: How do we instill in Democrats the idea that no election is meaningless and that they need to show up and cast votes in them all?
Political discussion from a Progressive Point of View by the MOMocrats.
Another week, another GOP debate tonight in Colorado - and the Republicans have a new front-runner: Dr. Ben Carson, whose mild-mannered demeanor distracts listeners from all the whack-a-doo theories and policy positions he seems to believe in. Or maybe that's what they like about him. At any rate, pundits are predicting that this debate could make or break Jeb Bush, who still leads the field with PAC money but is apparently struggling to pay his campaign staff. Pass the popcorn.
In the meantime on the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is still enjoying a very excellent October, Bernie Sanders is still in the game, and Martin O'Malley is hoping to reap the benefits of Jim Webb and Lincoln Chaffee dropping out of the race.
In other news: John Boehner is getting out of Dodge while Paul Ryan is poised to become the next Speaker of the House. We predict very little changes there, except the so-called Freedom Caucus will likely make getting things done even tougher. MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss politics from a progressive point of view.
President Obama continues to be the most effective "lame duck" elected official in history: It looks like the deal his administration negotiated with Iran and the other world powers will go into effect without Congressional disapproval. Also on the MOMocrats' agenda today: Kim Davis, the Syrian refugee crisis - and continuing coverage of the 2016 race. Political discussion from the progressive point of view, by MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills. An Engender Media Group production.
Next week, Congress gets back to work and their first order of business is to vote on the President's Iran deal. But right now, we're finishing up with one of the silliest political silly seasons in memory. Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills talk about a hodgepodge of topics this week: The President's trip to Alaska, the Sarah Palin interview of Donald Trump on a rinky-dink right-wing website, Carly Fiorina's probable graduation from the GOP Kids' table...and the drip-drip-drip of Hillary Clinton's emails.
How radical is Donald Trump's immigration plan? It would gut the 14th Amendment. And other GOP candidates are jumping on his bandwagon. To be fair, only Scott Walker has echoed Trump's sentiment on this so far, and other, more "grown-up" candidates like Jeb Bush and Lindsay Graham have pushed back on this idea. But the GOP likely voters responding to polls are eating Trump's antics up, so we ask: how long will it be before this becomes an official part of the Republican platform? MOMocrats Karoli, Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss the electoral landscape from a progressive point of view.
Ten candidates will duke it out Thursday night in Cleveland for the first GOP debate, and it promises to be a doozy! Especially since Fox News has relegated at least six other serious Republican contenders to an overflow event that starts earlier in the day, which critics have dubbed "the kids' table." MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills preview the event and talk about the chances of a bloodbath between front runner Donald Trump and equally bombastic contenders like Chris Christie. Pass the popcorn. It's early enough in the race that we can be entertained instead of frightened.
Two weeks ago, a shadowy group the Center for Medical Progress released a deceptively edited "sting" video against Planned Parenthood, which has become the opening salvo in yet another battle to defund the non-profit provider of reproductive health services. This week, the GOP in the Senate unveiled a bill that they hope will "ACORN" the group once and for all. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli, and Donna Schwartz Mills weigh in.

In a normal week, the MOMocrats would be anxiously awaiting the Supreme Court decisions on lethal injection, redistricting, EPA regulations, same sex marriage, Obamacare subsidies. But while the SCOTUS decisions will have long-term impact on the nation, this is not a normal week and MOMocrats Karoli, Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills will be discussing a myriad of other topics like: TPP, the Confederate flag, Bernie Sanders' amazing campaign rallies and Hillary Clinton's bold speech on race -- and President Obama's appearance on Marc Maron's podcast ("The best I've ever heard him do," says Karoli). Produced by Engender Media Group.
MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills had planned to use the official entrance of Donald Trump into the 2016 Presidential race to talk about the Clown Car that is the GOP field of candidates... but that was before a 21-year-old white thug shot a Bible study group at the Emanual AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina -- killing nine people, including the pastor, Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who was also a South Carolina state senator.
