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. Queen of Spain Blog's Erin Kotecki Vest joins MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills to talk about the dilemma of choosing between a conservative Republican and an extremely ...
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 ...
Cynematic of K12 News Network hosts a "Back to School" K12NN/MOMocrats Book Club interview with author Jose Luis Vilson.

Jose Luis Vilson has written a powerful and moving memoir of his own childhood spent in NYC schools and how he became a teacher. He's taught middle school math for the past ten years. ...
Twitter lit up this week with dual hashtags, #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft, after the release of that Ray Rice video began a national conversation on domestic violence. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills weigh in on the discussion. Also: the NY primary, ISIS, the "new" Meet the Press, and ...
For the first 15 minutes, political discussion and current events from the progressive point of view by the MOMocrats.

Claire Conner returns to MOMochat in this repeat from earlier this summer to talk about the alarming inroads the radical right has made into the Republican party, Congress and statehouses around the country. Claire is the author of Wrapped in the Flag, a memoir of growing up in a family of John Birch ...
There have been a rash of images that have gone viral in the wake of Ferguson, but the one that struck home to the MOMocrats depicted Florida student Frances Francois holding up a sign reading: "I Can't Believe I STILL Have to Protest This S**T!!"  Fifty years after Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil ...
California's ballot proposition process was meant to give the people more of a say in legislation, but the process has become entirely corrupted by money and special interests. Proposition language makes the proposals sound like good ideas, but like the legendary Trojan Horse, buried within the legalese ...
Claire Conner returns to MOMochat to talk about the alarming inroads the radical right has made into the Republican party, Congress and statehouses around the country. Claire is the author of Wrapped in the Flag, a memoir of growing up in a family of John Birch Society leaders.

The war in Gaza is a tragedy. Are American right-wingers somehow involved? There is some evidence it's true, as MOMocrat Karoli reports at Crooks and Liars.com. She and Donna Schwartz Mills examine what could be a pattern of collusion with conservative supporters of Israel, including a fabricated transcript ...
