MOMocrats: Episodes

The MOMocrats' weekly podcast looking at the day's political news from the progressive point of view. Check back here an hour from airtime for a list of the topics. Chances are, there will be some discussion of what's happening in Congress and a reaction to the latest  from lawmakers and candidates. ...
The MOMocrats talk about Bibi Netanyahu's big win and the resurrection of the US neocons, Aaron Shock's departure from Congress (who's going to get that Downton Abbey styled office?), more lies about Hillary... and the possibly hilarious news that Donald Trump may be running again for President in this week's podcast ...
Since the day he took office, President Obama has endured unprecedented disrespect from the right wing Republican party, which can no longer be characterized as "the loyal opposition" - they crossed that line a long time ago. But until this week, Republican intransigence mainly only affected our country's ...
Hillary Clinton used a private email account for her correspondence while she was Secretary of State -- a practice that violates the Federal Records Act of 2014. But didn't she leave office in 2012? And why isn't Colin Powell being criticized for the same practice? At any rate, Hillary gave a rousing ...
President Obama vetoed Keystone XL - but there are still plenty of dangers from other, smaller pipelines and oil trains that pass through our communities. What we lack is a comprehensive energy policy that would take us off oil, says MOMocrat Karoli -- although we've started to make some progress over ...
The media is excited about the 2016 election: A day doesn't go by without a breathless report about the possible candidacies of Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and other Republicans. But what about the Democrats? Hillary Clinton is all but coronated as the nominee, with many progressives trying to draft ...
Special K12 News Network discussion with United Opt Out's co-leaders, Peggy Robertson and Morna McDermott. Why is the impulse to opt chidlren out of standardized tests sweeping the nation at the moment? Because it's spring testing season. Some states have been burdened with giving the old standardized ...

"Is there a shot that will inoculate you against the stupid things politicians say?" wonder the MOMocrats, as Republicans like Chris Christie and Rand Paul raise hackles in their support of families who choose not to vaccinate -- eyebrow raising in the wake of a measles outbreak that has now infected ...
President Obama's approval ratings are higher than they've been in a couple of years -- and still rising, a trend MOMocrat Karoli credits to an unconstrained President who doesn't have to run any more campaigns (because he won both of them)... and an economy that has finally turned around to the point ...
Last night, President Obama appeared to have a new sense of ease as he delivered his sixth State of the Union address. After all, as he noted, he's run his last campaign... and he won both of them. MOMocrats Karoli, Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss the speech from the progressive POV: the ...
The terrorist attack in Paris last week was a horrific reminder of how vulnerable we all are to atrocities committed by small bands of determined criminals. It's a shame that our lawmakers and pundits seize upon these events to create political atrocities of their own. MOMocats Cynematic, Karoli and ...
If you can't banish people outright, then you can try to erase them from students' minds. That's exactly what happened in Tucson Unified School District in Arizona, when conservatives ipassed an anti-immigrant racial profiling law, SB1070 that in effect targeted Latinos. At the same time, right-wing ...
The 114th Congress was sworn in yesterday, with John Boehner surviving yet another Tea Party rebellion and Mitch McConnell taking over as new Senate Majority Leader. Since the abysmal Democratic showing in the 2014 midterms, President Obama has been acting like a man with nothing to lose; exercising ...
Year-end shows are too easy - MOMocrats Karoli, Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills would rather look ahead: What should progressives focus on in 2015? Especially given the difficulties of a new legislative landscape dominated by the GOP in both the House and Senate? Golden opportunity for progressives ...

The grand jury decision in Ferguson was released on Monday night and it was a depressing end to a depressing month for political progressives. MOMocrats Karoli, Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills talk about Ferguson and what it says about the continuation of insitutional racism in America. Also: President ...
Well, that was a drubbing wasn’t it? Last week’s bad election news – the voter suppression, the apathy, the disenchantment with Democratic messaging and a disconnect with actual achievements – has another and truly awful dimension. What will Congress be like now that some dangerously fringe right-wing ...
A lame duck Congress went back to work today, which makes us wonder: Can it be any lamer than it's been the last four years? MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills are not encouraged by reports that Harry Reid will not pursue confirmation of Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch, leaving ...
