SORT BY Relevancy
While attending the 2014 Netroots Nation conference, Gaius Publius — contributing writer at AmericaBlog and member of the Virtually Speaking Sunday media panel — conducted three interviews under the heading "Five Questions."
This year he spoke with House Democrat Keith Ellison, co-leader of the Congressional Progressive Caucus; economist Dr. Stephanie Kelton of the MMT school of economics; and Democratic strategist and activist Robert Cruickshank.
In this podcast, Gaius talks with Rep. Ellison about —
• Ellisons's view of the so-called "budget for burnable carbon" and the looming climate crisis
• How progressives can "win" if Clinton is the nominee in 2016
• What his Muslim faith means to Ellison, a former Catholic
Gauis first published this series of conversations at AmericaBlog.
Meet Chris Fields, the Republican endorsed challenger to incumbant Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison.

What would Fields do differently?

DID YOU KNOW that you do NOT have a constitutional right to vote? The national debate over voter ID’s rages on. Some claim we need to require some sort of photo ID in order to vote. This will reduce voter fraud. Others argue that there are no significant instances of voter fraud that justify the thousands of citizens legitimately entitled to vote, who would be excluded from this important democratic process.

Avant is a name that has been used in the context of being original or innovative but the singer/songwriter from Cleveland has transformed the word into a powerhouse brand. Since breaking out on the music scene with his first platinum hit singles, “Separated” and “My First Love”—he has been on a non-stop journey having released seven albums in the last 15 years.
Avant has toured with some of the biggest names in the R&B world from Joe, Jagged Edge and Keith Sweat. He is preparing for the new album release, The VIII in September 2015. This spring he released the debut single from the album, “Special” which is romantic song that breathes new life into love and commitment.
Luke Christopher isn’t about to wait around for anybody. Instead of relying on singers or producers, the Los Angeles rapper can belt out a hook with the best of them, and he remains an accomplished producer and beat maker in his own right. On his two new EPs YSTRDY and TMRW for ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records, his singular vision only starts to unfold, encompassing airtight rhymes, cinematic storytelling, keen wit, and a little bit of wisdom.
Growing up in the San Fernando Valley, music surrounded Luke. At a young age, his father turned him on to the likes of Elton John, U2, Michael Jackson, and Stevie Wonder. However, hip-hop found him one Christmas when 2Pac’s All Eyez On Me sat under the tree. In high school, he converted the bottom bed of his bunk beds into a makeshift studio. There, he taught himself how to rap, sing, and compose beats. By his seventeenth birthday, he was ready to be properly heard, and major labels clamored for this strangely soulful and emotionally expansive style.
