The Rest of the 2021 Elections (Pink Tsunami)

So Nina Turner lost, and most of us are pretty fucking depressed about it. There has been an air of hopelessness regarding the future of the left, and there is no doubt that the Democratic establishment is aiming to perpetuate it. Much like with the 2020 Presidential Election, the media narrative is proving to be …

Let’s Send Nina Turner to Congress! – Ohio Special Election (Pink Tsunami)

Well, it was a nice break from political writing, but It wouldn’t be right for me to stay silent on Nina Turner’s election. Despite the fact that Trump has been out of office for over half a year, it doesn’t feel like much has changed. The fact that Biden hasn’t been following through on his …

The Progressive Update (8/27/2020): Massachusetts Primaries & the Alex Morse Smear Job

The Florida Primary was a bit of a standstill for progressives. The biggest disappointment was that Debbie Wasserman Schultz won re-election with a 44 point lead against progressive candidate Jen Perelman, despite the fact that the former was in trouble for physically assaulting a minor just a few days before the primary. On the plus …

The Weekly Bern (7/4/2020): Kentucky & Colorado Senate Defeats, Let’s Hope New Jersey is Different.

Welp, today (as in the June 30th 2020 when this was being written) was a fucking mess. We wake up to see that Charles Booker lost by a slim margin to Amy McGrath, and later on we see that Frackenlooper has a 20 point lead over Andrew Romanoff in Colorado’s Senate race. This is a …

The Weekly Bern (6/26/2020): Bowman & Jones Win Primary, Booker Leading McGrath, Can Romanoff Win too?

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Weekly Bern and NO MORE ELIOT ENGEL, FUCK YEAH MOTHERFUCKERS!!!! So yeah, you’ve probably heard by now about the enormous victories in the New York Primary. Not only did Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez win re-election in a landslide against her Wall Street pandering opponent, which will undoubtedly lead to a …

The Weekly Bern (6/14/2020): Paula Jean Swearengin Wins Primary, Charles Booker & Jamaal Bowman Surging.

As predicted, we did in fact see some more progressive victories in the June 9th primaries, and most of them were in West Virginia. While Stephen Smith did not manage the nomination, several West Virginia Can’t Wait candidates still have, including Senate candidate Paula Jean Swearengin. While Paula Jean’s nomination is a pretty big victory …

The Weekly Bern (6/5/2020): June 9th Elections

The June 6th Primaries went significantly better than I expected. I’m not going to say that they were excellent or anything given that, as with the past few primaries, a lot of progressive challengers got squashed. Kimberly Graham and Mckayla Wilkes both performed way below expectations, and the only major winners in congressional races, with …

The Weekly Bern (5/29/2020): Bernie Berns Out, Kara Eastman Primary Victory, June 2nd Primaries.

Just to preemptively shut down any “this weekly series hasn’t had an update in over a month” comments, read the Pink Tsunami pieces I posted since then. Those are you updates. Those pieces take a lot of work and I have my limitations. Hell I was suffering some pretty heavy burnout from those alone and …
