MOMocrats: Episodes

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?

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 ...
We knew the odds were against Democrats in yesterday's midterm election, and even if we hadn't known, the breathless horserace reporting of the mainstream media made sure of it. It pains us to acknowledge that the pollsters' "likely voters" predictions came true -- we allowed the Republicans to win by ...
California's "top two" primary system has left many voters with a Hobson's Choice between two candidates of the same party.

The official date for the 2014 election is less than two weeks away, but early voting in several states has already begun. That hasn't stopped the now-typical wrangling over voting rules in states governed by Republicans. Saturday morning we got a little October surprise from the Supreme Court, which ...
We all agree: Ebola is scary, and the news that two healthcare workers in Dallas have contracted the disease is very disturbing.

But the media coverage is not helping the situation. Fear sells papers and gets people to watch the news -- but reporting every rumor as if it is an inevitable disaster is ...
The MOMocrats' first podcast of October coincides with the opening of the 2014 term of the Supreme Court, which lately has been the source of horror stories like Citizens United and the gutting of the Voting Rights Act. RH Reality Check legal analyst Jessica Pieklo joins Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz ...
Disturbing revelations about the Secret Service, after last week's incident with a White House intruder: The right wing is quick to blame the President himself for the agency's disarray - but really, how much of the problem can be traced to understaffing and underfunding the people charged with keeping ...
Cynematic of K-12 News Network and Karoli of Crooks and Liars discuss current events.

In recognition of Banned Book Week and student walkouts over attempts to "conservatize" AP American History curriculum, community outrage over a Christian Biblical slant to Texas schoolbooks, and parental pushback ...
