“We are looking at a totally new political world,” he said. “If we play by the old rules, we will lose and they will win. Our job is not to play by the old rules.”

quote [ The issue, he argued, was not that Trump won the election “so much as the Democratic Party lost the election” by not answering the call of those workers. ]

Here, he explains ecnomic populism much better than I do.

Bernie Sanders just proposed a law to save millennials' retirements

quote [ The bill would lift the payroll tax cap on highest earners and extend the life of the program through 2078. Currently, Social Security is funded through a 6.2% payroll tax that only applies to the first $127,200 a person earns in a year. The Sanders ... would lift the cap on all income above $250,000. ]

Common sense, and deader than a door nail.

The Future Of The Democratic Party, According To The Bernie Sanders Wing

quote [ This is perhaps an uncomfortable question for a lot of Democrats, but do you think the Democratic Party was too top-heavy on cultural issues and was not paying enough attention to core economic messaging? And tied into that — how does the party balance civil rights issues, gay rights issues while also trying to put the pedal to the metal on appealing to the working class that in some places, black or white, doesn’t share certain progressive cultural values? ]

It is all about the money!!

Still not sure how this all ends up.

Well looks like this is either a story about another Whitehouse leak or shock that this would even cross their minds.

quote [ Trump Administration May Mobilize National Guard To Round Up Unauthorized Immigrants

White House press secretary Sean Spicer called the report “100% false.” ]

The headline is clickbate, but it does look like this was talked about as an actual strategy. Doesn't shock me as I think this is part of their strategy all along.

Andrew Puzder nomination for labor secretary withdrawn.

quote [ The former Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s chief executive is the first casualty among the president’s controversial Cabinet picks. ]

This is what I needed to hear about the entire Russian /Trump mess.

quote [ Senate Intelligence Committee Will Investigate Michael Flynn

Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) joins us to discuss the scope of a Senate investigation into Michael Flynn’s conversations with the Russian Ambassador to the United States. ]

This is the promise I wanted somebody to make today.
