Mass. Sen. (and presidential hopeful) Elizabeth Warren has a bold plan to give workers more power and make "corporate persons" act… like good people. Can she find the sweet spot between capitalism and socialism?
The Quaker Earth Action Team forced PNC to stop funding mountaintop removal of coal and have a message for anti-Trump protesters. Pick small winnable targets, focus not on pols but on consumer brands, and be more creative.
The Saudi-dropped - and American-aided - bomb that struck a packed school bus in northern Yemen, killing dozens of innocent schoolkids, raises serious questions about the U.S. role in sparking one of the world's worst humanitarian crises.
Gerry Lenfest saved my job - but his man's generosity should also remind us that American society's in deep trouble when we depend on the lottery of trickle-down (or, thanks to GoFundMe, trickle-up) charity for the things a civilized nation is supposed to provide all citizens.
Despite pressure from a federal judge and global shame, the Trump administration has still not reunited 572 migrant children with their families. It's time to start locking up administration officials for contempt of court.
The president's press-hating, conspiracy-loving rally-goers may represent an extreme lunatic fringe, but they give Trump strength to defy his enemies and provide cover for more conventional GOPers to stay on board his sinking ship.
In 2016, Ady Barkan was an engaged but obscure liberal activist - a handsome runner and young dad - when two things happened to change his life. Donald Trump was elected president, and doctors told him he had ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, and might only have a couple of years to live. Now wheelchair-bound, Barkan brings his fight for economic justice to the Philadelphia region.
With wildfires tied to record heat waves killing dozens in Greece, terrorizing quaint Scandinavian villages, and now a tornado of flames tearing through a California town, this summer has made it clear that a) climate change is here and b) too many Americans don't care much.
Almost none of corporate America's $1 trillion windfall is going back to workers in the form of raises. Almost all of it went into programs like stock buybacks that primarily benefit wealthy Wall Street investors. Time for torches and pitchforks.
Last week's indictment of 12 Russian spies was a vindication for a young Georgia woman named Reality Winner, who'd warned the nation in 2017 that governmental denials about hacking of voting systems weren't true. Unfortunately, she got the news while serving a 63-month prison sentence.
Trump will never lose The 41 Percent because a) he looks like their idea of a president, regardless of what gibberish comes from his mouth and b) he achieves the one thing they really care about, which is not health care or a job but making the media that they hate so much foam at the mouth.
Buried in Friday's bombshell indictment of Russian spies are new, stunning clues on how Putin's meddling may have won it for Trump: By messing with state voter rolls and by stealing Democratic analytics to learn which states to target in the fall election.
Call it what it is: Ethnic cleansing. From naturalized citizens who've been in America for 20 years to soldiers who enlisted expecting citizenship to law-abiding immigrants plucked by ICE to the widely publicized mess at the southern border, Trump's government seems engaged in a slow-motion crusade to keep whites in the majority.
They were hungry, they were bruised, they missed their parents…and yet somehow they made it. That's true of those Thai soccer players whose rescue riveted the world, but it's also true of thousands of desperate teens fleeing violence in Central America. Why can't we show them the same love?
