Joe Biden Opts to “Go Big”- Will It Work?

Washington – The battle cry ”Go Big, Joe! Go Big!” echoed among Democrats after their underdog candidates scored stunning upset victories in Georgia, picking up two vital senate seats earlier this month. And with his $1.9 trillion corona relief plan, Joe Biden has indeed decided to “Go Big.” But  “Going Big” is a gamble. It […]

Neil Sheehan: What Makes Great Reporting?

(Author’s Note: Neil Sheehan and I worked together during the Vietnam War – in Saigon, Washington and on The New York Times Pentagon Papers series, the TOP SECRET internal Pentagon history of the war. Neil Sheehan died Jan. 7 at age 84. This is my memorial tribute to Neil, as a friend, colleague, and a […]

Rebuilding the Guard Rails of Our Republic

Washington – Just when you think we are out of the woods and that, for all his histrionics, Donald Trump will surrender the White House on time,  he’s conjured some new backroom cabal to subvert our democracy with truculent QAnon conspirators, armed vigilantes or unprincipled Senators. You may dismiss it  as political theater or narcissistic […]

People Power Scores Win vs Inequality

Washington – Unless you tuned out Donald Trump on his final frenetic campaign blitz, you remember seeing him barnstorming across Florida, stoking the fears of Latino voters with his nightmare threat that Joe Biden & Company would “turn America into Communist Cuba or Socialist Venezuela.” Fearmongering pure and simple, but it worked with a big […]

Pandemic: New Gold Rush for Billionaires

Washington – While you and I have focused on the economic havoc of job losses, pay cuts and business failures caused by the corona pandemic, we missed noticing that the tiny sliver of super-super-rich at the apex of our economy was simultaneously fattening their already phenomenal fortunes, thanks to the pandemic. A surprise perhaps because […]

Washington – The flood tide is still rising, but already the Mega-Money tsunami of Election 2020 is going into the record books as the most expensive election in American history with the biggest flow of dark money ever funneled anonymously to candidates – $750 million, up from a minuscule $5 million a decade ago. With […]

Alaska OKs Reforms to Break Partisan Gridlock

Washington – Given the drumbeat of grim news about the coronavirus  and the interminable imbroglio over Donald Trump’s inability to accept defeat, how about some good news for a change? Good news about a grassroots citizen coalition winning a stunning victory to reform elections in Alaska. Yes, while the lower 48 states are mired in […]

Georgia: Battle Royal to Control the Senate

Washington – Joe Biden’s tradition-shattering, razor-thin, 11,799-vote victory in the Deep South state of Georgia in November is the political explosion that fires Democratic dreams of winning two fiercely fought U.S. Senate runoff elections in Georgia in early January and thereby gaining control of the U.S. Senate. Right now, Republicans have locked in a 50-48 […]

Have We Just Crippled Washington?

Washington – Normally, elections clear the air, bring new faces to power, offer the dawn of a new day,  a fresh beginning, and an opportunity for political healing. Not this year. The electorate has rendered a split and potentially crippling decision. The scarring schism that polarizes America into two warring camps, Red vs Blue, with […]

3 Ways to Fight Extremism, Bolster the Middle

Washington – With the election just days away, are you getting tired of the scaremongering and mud-slinging in the presidential campaign?   How about some good news for a change? Good news about political reforms to make American elections fairer, more transparent, and more inclusive, and to help rebuild the political middle, so desperately missing in […]
