Naomi Klein – It was the Democrats’ embrace of neoliberalism that won it for Trump

They will blame James Comey and the FBI. They will blame voter suppression and racism. They will blame Bernie or bust and misogyny. They will blame third parties and independent candidates.

Leid Stories—Clinton Foundation Election Eve Special—11.07.16

On the eve of one of the most contentious presidential elections in U.S. history, the nation finds itself being coaxed into barreling through a bitter contest, bringing it to a close, and moving on under a new administration. But few believe Election 2016 to be a fair fight; even fewer believe it to be an insult to the democratic process. In effect, Election 2016 has been a never-ending saga of political twists and turns, and the “star” of the show hasn’t been substantive issues the candidates differ on, but their various levels and categories of wrongdoing, including major crimes. In Election 2016, voters are actually jurors, weighing the guilt or innocence of the contestants. There’s much on their plates to consider.

MATT STOLLER – How Democrats Killed Their Populist Soul

It was January 1975, and the Watergate Babies had arrived in Washington looking for blood. The Watergate Babies—as the recently elected Democratic congressmen were known—were young, idealistic liberals who had been swept into office on a promise to clean up government, end the war in Vietnam, and rid the nation’s capital of the kind of corruption and dirty politics the …
