Sanders was the only candidate who attracted millions of inactive American youngsters into electoral politics.
If Democrats could have controlled themselves and had stopped from stabbing Sanders in back (as all the documents indicates), if Democrats hadn't alienated millions of young first time voters from the process, then it would have been a different story.
What regime lobbyists have in common with Clinton (and Republicans) is an attachment to Neoliberlaism and all that comes with Neoliberalism.
Since November the Democratic party has also lost four major local elections. Any sane person should comprehend by now that the problem stems from Democrats attachment to mainstream corporate, big-money, big-business politics: NEOLIBERALISM.
Which side are you on? With the people, or with establishment, that is the question.

Civil war has broken out inside the Democratic party. Does the future belong to the populist left or the centrists?

Well, it seems like the so called left's role in American elections is to turn off voters to vote for Democrats. Trump didn't have much trouble by using Bernie Sanders criticism of Clinton and democrats to demonize Clinton.
The question addressed to this crowd is:
How do you like it now?

One of the 'founding fathers' actually mentions Muslims (Jefferson, or...? I forget which one, memory is getting old), he calls them "Muhammadion," as a faith to be recognized and accepted.
Just imagine how 200 years ago there was such an open minded approach and a democratic mindset about all this; If not mistaken Juan Cole had an article about this, or he mentioned in passing, or both..
Looks like Islamic State in Iran is not the only one regressing in history and going back.
Trump seems to be having a competition with mullahs in lying, producing unadulterated horse manure and pushing back our times to Medieval Ages.

‘Our Brand Is Worse Than Trump’ : is how some Democrats are describing themselves.

www.nytimes.com/2017/06/21/us/pelosi-georgia-ossoff-democrats.html

Just because Trump is repulsive doesn't seem to automatically and mechanically benefit Democrats.
The two party system is broken and until an independent progressive third party emerges this sad saga will continue.

At least it was close. A big block of those Republican voters were well educated and affluent -- that's a damn good combo for flipping longtime Republicans and moderate Independents. A huge number had to flip to make this such a close race. Not to mention, they outspent Republicans by a whopping 5 to 1. My bookie says that at 8 to 1 the Democrats would of won ;)

It's actually a wake up call for the Republican party bosses and their followers now that they are in complete control of the government.
The question is: Are there going to be more events such as that.

Berkeley is not the same as the Republican club hosting Coulter. Coulter was not invited by the University. She was invited by a devious club, trying to stir up controversy in order to pack their event with paying attendees.

My point in all of this is using the false cry of freedom of speech is not fair when you are merely trying to manipulate that right, in order to sell books or tickets to boost your club budget on a campus that is WELL KNOWN for liberal non-right-wing traditions.

Coulter was trying to sell books and hoped for a riot to do that. The Right wing political club, wanted to sell out the event in order to make money for their club.

Each has a right to do that. My argument is that they cannot do that under the banner of Freedom of Speech, and MORE importantly, they cannot do it For FREE.

Democratic party is the grave of progressive social movements in America.
If there's any hope it would be with Independent Political Action (independent from both parties and the big business, big money, corporate interests they represent).
Historically speaking all positive social changes in the US has occurred only and only when independent social forces have pushed the establishment to break with the status quo and enact, institutionalize and put into law positive changes (Populist movement of 1890's, unemployed and newly unionized workers in 1930's, civil rights activists of 1960's, Environmental activists,...).

Trump's climate accord renegation killing Capitalism?
Highly unlikely.
If anything for the immediate future Trump's stupidity has energized environmental concerns on local, national and international levels; with various US cities bucking Trump's policies and continuing with their environmental policies in their cities (NYC,...) and various national and international announcements on how Paris accord will be upheld.
Per an end to Capitalism, if anything the current global environmental crisis (as disruptive as it has been) is also creating needs and new markets for new technologies, architectural designs and more opportunities for Capital accumulation.
To make a long story short, as long as the process of Capital accumulation continues unhindered there is no real, substantial, significant threats to Capitalism as a mode of production.
Only two phenomenons could effectively put an end to Capitalism on Earth:
- An asteroid hitting the planet, putting an end to Capitalism (and everything else on Earth)!
- A mighty global Anti-Capitalist movement united around a coherent social, political program with massive popular basis in every continent and country.
Neither of these two scenarios seems to be in the cards.
Capitalism continuing in the from of a "Techno-Feudalism" seems more plausible than ever.

Every story has a beginning, a middle and an end.
The disintegration of American political system is pointing to its slow fall.
Corporations and the one percenters are in complete control blaring their propaganda through their privately owned media and their so called 'Research' organizations.
Nothing to celebrate, if it's hopeless then there's nothing to worry about.
