 @Dave Weigel  @Jess Newman  @Jacobin Or next issue has a 10,000 word oral history of the Bernie campaign, comprised of interviews with people like  @Briahna Joy Gray,  @David Sirota, Weaver, and  @Ari Rabin-Havt.

NEW EPISODE of  #INETPodcast:  @David Sirota,  @Jacobin editor-at-large and former speechwriter for  @Bernie Sanders, talks to  @Rob Johnson about the future of democratic socialism in America after the Sanders campaign. https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-t2uy7-e24aaf#.XwNwQOI56fg.twitter

This is a good piece that, as it happens, explains why Sanders couldn’t be allowed to win the Democratic nomination—because these people’s jobs, access, and consulting contracts would have been in question. As of now, with Biden, they’re safe. https://prospect.org/world/how-biden-foreign-policy-team-got-rich/

Keep returning to this  @David Sirota piece: "A lobbying group for hospital systems, including some that own nursing homes – said it 'drafted and aggressively advocated for' the immunity provision." https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/may/26/andrew-cuomo-nursing-home-execs-immunity

Neocons who led us into the Iraq War will not fix our national security policy. Politicos who let a reality TV star win a national election will not fix politics. Billionaires who created this dystopia will not fix the economy. The arsonists will not put out the fire.

"taking dumps on the Dems" The George Bush team stole the 2000 election from Democrats, steamrolled the Democratic Party as it rammed the entire GOP agenda through Congress & then beat the Dems in 2004 by questioning their patriotism

 @David Sirota When you spend the greater part of the last few years taking dumps on the Dems and then wonder why they don’t welcome you with open arms...? At least the ex Bush team understands coalition politics. Personally I don’t want to cancel anyone but Trump. Get on board w that!

Why is a public pension fund allowing itself to be used in an industry advertisement?  @CalPERS

Me: Regulator alligators are among the scariest animals I can imagine -- they can rampage on land and in water and I'm almost shocked they haven't taken over the world. Alligators: wait till you see us on a stimulant. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/tennessee-police-warn-locals-not-flush-drugs-fear-meth-gators-n...

The story here is that the EPA did very explicit disaster capitalism, citing a pandemic to let corporate polluters just openly destroy the planet https://news.bloomberglaw.com/environment-and-energy/epas-pandemic-related-enforcement-relaxation-to...

They wanna charge $3,000 for a drug they could make a profit off of at $10 -- and they want to do that with a medicine that the American public paid tens of millions of dollars to develop. https://buff.ly/3ga2Qho

“The well-funded, obstructionist environmental lobby has successfully killed the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.”

It's the year 2020. How can Democrats somehow not be aware by now that they should never ever work with a Cheney on war policy? https://buff.ly/2AwilRI

I think it’s telling that Beltway Democratic staffers, operatives and think tankers want to cancel Bernie Sanders staffers, and want to embrace former George Bush officials who helped lie America into a war and who let an American city drown in a hurricane.

If you think John Roberts is a moderate, you've been played. https://buff.ly/3ivEMHZ

I don’t know who needs to hear this but voting garbage politicians out of office because they are corrupt is not “cancel culture”

Trump quietly issued a directive that could let health insurance corporations offload the cost of Covid tests onto workers, even when employers order workers to take the tests as a condition of coming back to work. https://buff.ly/2VxM0kO

The American public paid tens of millions of dollars to develop a Covid drug. The pharmaceutical company Gilead could make a healthy profit off the drug by charging $10 for it. Gilead is planning to charge Americans $3,000 for the drug. https://buff.ly/3ga2Qho

Rule 1: Never work with a Cheney on war policy. Rule 2: If you somehow don't understand Rule 1, go back and re-read it and never forget it, for the love of god. https://buff.ly/2AwilRI

At some point, an anthropomorphic bag of corporate cash is going to win a Democratic primary promising Democratic voters it will get itself out of politics

If you don't know the history of John Roberts, you really should. It's been flushed completely down the memory hole -- but it explains everything that he's been doing to radically reshape the entire American economy. https://buff.ly/3ivEMHZ
