The war on Bernie Sanders carried out by the Washington Post is unfair, dishonest, and never-ending. As long as Sanders stands with workers in opposition to the bosses and billionaires who own the media, he can expect more of the same treatment.
Pushed by leftist activists and legislators like Rashida Tlaib, the Democratic Party is finally having it over Israel. It's a long-overdue step toward shifting US foreign policy and challenging Israel's occupation.
Elizabeth Warren’s stance on health care reform has been murky throughout her campaign, so her health care plank announced last week was welcome. Unfortunately, that plank still doesn’t answer some fundamental questions about where exactly she stands on Medicare for All.
Despite a team of moderators who didn’t think viewers needed to hear much from him or about climate change, Bernie Sanders roared back with a strong debate performance.
Facing pressure from the Left, Democratic presidential candidates are foregoing corporate PAC money. But in private, they’re still cozying up to capitalist supervillains.
This presidential campaign, the Center for American Progress has been put in the comical position of having to promote policies that they just a few months ago claimed were insane and politically suicidal. But one constant remains — they can’t stand Bernie Sanders.
Today, thousands of private families control the wages and conditions of domestic workers in the United States. But work like childcare, eldercare, and home health care should be provided by the state, and by union workers.
Last night's Democratic debate was disastrous for Joe Biden. The problem is, the rivals who criticized his long record of right-wing policies have supported plenty of reactionary policies of their own.
The Democratic presidential candidates’ debate last night was overcrowded, light on substance, and somehow both hyperpartisan and boring as hell. Is this what we have to keep suffering through for the rest of the primary?
The polls are all over the place, but Bernie Sanders has a trick up his sleeve: no other candidate in the Democratic primary boasts such a deeply devoted support base. Come the general election, that deep enthusiasm for Sanders will be crucial for beating Donald Trump.

Democrats are endorsing striking teachers. That doesn’t mean the party’s abandoning its education agenda, but it does mean that the working class is making itself harder to ignore.
Taking stock of the Democratic field on US empire.
Bernie Sanders would be the only 2020 presidential candidate who’s taken on health care profiteers in the name of the working class and worked to pass Medicare for All through social movement pressure, not compromise.
Rep. Karen Bass is no socialist, but she's hung around a few of us in the past. Because of this, as her name was floated for Biden's vice presidency, she's been subjected to McCarthyist-style smears. We on the Left have to clearly and loudly stand against these attacks — they’re designed to make socialism politically beyond the pale.
Krystal Ball was once an MSNBC star. Now she’s one of the few mainstream media figures who gets why Bernie Sanders matters and why liberal professionals shouldn’t be allowed to dominate progressive politics.

Bernie Sanders introduced a new Medicare for All Act today in the Senate that would guarantee universal health benefits with no means-testing or exclusions. It’s the kind of bill Sanders would fight for as president.
