    If At First You Don't Succeed in Congress, Sign an Executive Order

    in Politics Progressive

    Trump promised to get rid of Obamacare on Day One - and soon discovered what the rest of us who pay attention already knew: Healthcare is complicated. And it isn't easy to erase a law that has helped millions of Americans obtain health insurance for the first time, even when you've gerrymandered the rules so you can do it with a simple majority. So he's taken to destroying the law by shortening the enrollment period, eliminating budget, taking the enrollment website down for maintenance on weekends when people are most likely to use it... and now, refusing to pay the subsidies that help people pay for the higher premiums that have resulted from all the previous measures. MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills have a few things to say about that, as well as reports that this president's mental state is increasingly erratic... and how those whispers about invoking the 25th admendment are getting louder -- from actual Republicans. Also an extensive conversation on the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein revelations. Politics from the progressive point of view, produced by Engender Media Group.

    The Bitching Post: So Are You Scared Yet?

    in Politics Progressive

    Dozens of doctors in the mental health field have come forward and stated Donald Cheeto Trump is not fit to be in the office he currently inhabits (visit www.adutytowarn.org to watch the documentary, titled Duty To Warn: The Movie).
    Are the American people going to listen?
    Or will we continue to delude ourselves as our country continues on the road to hell?
    Meanwhile, the NFL players are getting their message across when they #TakeAKnee! Woo hoo! And also, the Governor of New York gave the speech that DJT SHOULD have given regarding Puerto Rico, and the disastrous circumstances STILL present therein!

    Politics Done Right on KPFT - He says he can solve inner city public schools

    in Politics Progressive

    I met George Batten when working on the 2008 Obama campaign. After the campaign we lostcontact for some time. A few years later I saw him at the gym. At first I did not remember how we met. Eventually George Batten remembered that we met at the Obama 2008 campaign.
    In 2012 a few Kingwood Area activist got together and created Occupy Kingwood in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement. We rallied at the corner of Kingwood Drive and West Lake Houston Boulevard every Saturday morning for 52 consecutive weeks rain or shine, heat or cold. I invited George Batten to be a part of it. He did not hesitate. He was there almost every week.
    As one can imagine I had a lot of time to speak with George Batten about just about every issue. He however had a passion. He told me he knew how to cure the discipline problem in the inner city schools. He was passionate about it. He said it isn’t conjecture. George Batten said he did it at his school. He has written much about it.
    Before we start the discussion with George Batten, I want to talk a little bit about Net Neutrality. If you do not know what that is about, you should.

    #JustSayin' with Mandy Kinney Episode 15

    in Politics Progressive

    Hey there!  I keep hearing on the news that Russia hacked our political servers, they swayed our election, and they are our mortal enemy.  But why?  I decided a couple MONTHS ago that I would do a show on this, but I wanted to make sure I knew all I could before speaking, so I delayed it.  I wanted to know if Vladimir Putin is really the spawn of Satan.  Our media certainly paints a picture of him that makes me think so!  Listen Tuesday, February 14, for the answer to these questions and more!
    Please call (215) 383-5796 if you’d like to chat with me live!  If you can't catch the live broadcast be sure to check out the podcast on iTunes, TuneIn, Stitcher, Player FM, Spreaker, and Pocket Casts.  You can also always listen to any previous episode at  http://www.mandykinney.com/p/justsayin-shows-page-listen-here.html.

    The IDECLAIR Show...

    in Politics Progressive

    @IDECLAIRMEDIA Tonight 9PM ET Live:  W/ Larry The Political Analyst
    #45s Petulant Obama Policy Sabotage Tantrums COSTS EVERYDAY AMERICANS & AMERICAS MOST VULNERABLE Quality of Life. 
    Whether it's the Affordable Care Act, The Iran Deal (refusing to recertify the agreement), EPA policy, EDU policy, various federal regulations, etc... It appears the presidency of #45 is a disastrous exercise in "unbalanced, unstable," political tantrum revenge.
    This is extremely dangerous, and a horrendous national embarrassment. 
    Core policies of former President Obama are deliberately being undone by #45. Disagreeing politically is nothing new, & that's what democracies do. But, what is being done by #45, & his cabinet is very different. There's an undeniable (& well reported) emotionally irrational, race biased grossness to this admin., the horrific response, & threat to pull out of Puerto Rico, is a blazing example.
    The politically pitiful & petulant pattern of #45 has been revealed to be very clear. Continued deconstruction of quality of life policies by the Obama Admin. will cause the lives of everyday Americans & Americas most vulnerable to be made tougher, rougher, harder, & more challenging.
    Sadly, the presidency of #45 is an exercise of insecure, 'nasty,' thin skinned, seething, race biased white male uber priviledged, revenge. IDECLAIR IT.
    Join us 9P ET Live.
