  • Robert B. Reich: How Democrats can stop Trump (and prevent future Trumps)

    The Baltimore Sun ^ | May 2, 2018 | by Robert B. Reich
    Why did working-class voters choose a selfish, thin-skinned, petulant, lying, narcissistic, boastful megalomaniac for president? With the 2018 midterms around the corner, and prospective Democratic candidates already eyeing the 2020 presidential race, the answer is important because it will influence how Democrats campaign. One explanation focuses on economic hardship. The working class fell for Mr. Trump's economic populism. A competing explanation -- which got a boost this week from a study published by the National Academy of Sciences -- dismisses economic hardship and blames it on whites' fear of losing status to blacks and immigrants. They were attracted to Mr....
  • Clinton’s Labor Secretary Pleads For Wall Street Control Of The White House (Robert Reich, Resist)

    The One Percent on Wall Street must save the nation by taking political control from President Donald Trump, says former President Bill Clinton’s far-left labor secretary. “If the leaders of American business remain silent about what Trump is doing to American democracy, they will be complicit in its demise,” Robert Reich begged Wall Street CEOs in the April 26 San Francisco Chronicle. Reich, who was a progressive Secretary of Labor from 1993 to 1997, justifies calls for a virtual occupation by Wall Street of the White House, saying: As the Republican Party moves toward Trump’s looniness — his xenophobia, isolationism,...

    New York, June 24 – The American economy could face significant and widespread disruptions from climate change unless U.S. businesses and policymakers take immediate action to reduce climate risk, according to a new report released today. The report, “Risky Business: The Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States,” summarizes findings of an independent assessment of the impact of climate change at the county, state, and regional level, and shows that communities, industries, and properties across the U.S. face profound risks from climate change. The findings also show that the most severe risks can still be avoided through early...

Mediate’s Alex Griswold highlights this bizarre exchange between former Clinton Cabinet member Robert Reich and CNN’s Don Lemon, in which Reich explains away the riots in Berkeley that prevented Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech at the university as a false flag by … Breitbart? “I was there for part of last night, and I know what I saw and those people were not Berkeley students,” Reich said. “Those people were outside agitators. I have never seen them before.”“There’s rumors...

    Robert Reich, who served as Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, is urging his fellow progressives to block President-elect Donald Trump from carrying out his policy plans for his first 100 days in office, including a suggestion to “boycott all Trump products, real estate, hotels, resorts, everything.” Reich’s “First 100 Day Resistance Agenda” also urges Democrats in Congress to draw out the hearings of Trump’s Cabinet nominees while progressive journalists “dig into their backgrounds”. “Our version of ‘Drill, baby, drill’ is ‘Sue, baby, sue’,” he continued. “Throw sand in the gears. Lawyers, get organized.” He also recommended “coordinated fund-raising”...

    The Huffington Post Politics ^ | December 12, 2016 | Matt Ferner, national reporter
    Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich says that a “dark cloud of illegitimacy” hangs over the pending presidency of Donald Trump, and that the only remedy is for Trump to release his tax returns and for the CIA to release its findings about alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election to help Trump win. This information must be released, Reich said, before the Electoral College casts its ballots next week. “The CIA has found credible evidence that Russia intervened in the election in order to help Trump become president,” Reich wrote in a Facebook post over the weekend ― referring...

    Bill Clinton and Barack Obama helped shift power away from the people towards corporations. It was this that created an opening for Donald Trump. What has happened in America should not be seen as a victory for hatefulness over decency. It is more accurately understood as a repudiation of the American power structure. At the core of that structure are the political leaders of both parties, their political operatives, and fundraisers; the major media, centered in New York and Washington DC; the country’s biggest corporations, their top executives, and Washington lobbyists and trade associations; the biggest Wall Street banks, their...

    Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton Administration, has created a video in which he warns Democrats why Ted Cruz is far more "dangerous" than Donald Trump. In other words, Reich, who serves as Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, all but endorsed Cruz as the candidate of choice for conservatives. As he spoke, he drew pictures of Cruz and Trump on a flip-chart and jotted down what he considers to be Cruz's "dangerous" positions:

    Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich has blamed a Jewish “axis” of power for “polarizing” the debate around the Iran deal. In a Facebook post on Sunday, Reich said that the “Nentanyahu-AIPAC-Adelson-Republican axis” posed “a serious danger to America, Israel, and American Jews.” He slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for “interfering in American politics as no foreign leader has ever done before,” and blamed him for turning Democrats against Israel. He did not mention Obama’s charge that Republicans are making “common cause” with Iranian hard-liners. Reich also claimed: “Polls suggest a solid majority of American Jews support Obama and...

    1. The “job creators” are CEOs, corporations, and the rich, whose taxes must be low in order to induce them to create more jobs. Rubbish. The real job creators are the vast middle class and the poor, whose spending induces businesses to create jobs. Which is why raising the minimum wage, extending overtime protection, enlarging the Earned Income Tax Credit, and reducing middle-class taxes are all necessary. 2. The critical choice is between the “free market” or “government.” Baloney. The free market doesn’t exist in nature. It’s created and enforced by government. And all the ongoing decisions about how it’s...

    Democrats and the media have accuses Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) of "McCarthyism" merely for posing tough questions to and about Chuck Hagel during the latter's confirmation as Secretary of Defense. Yet a recent column by former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich reveals who the real McCarthyites are in U.S. politics today, as Reich likens the Tea Party to a conspiracy "to undermine the government of the United States." Reich, who has steadfastly supported President Barack Obama's big-government, tax-and-spend agenda, wrote that the Tea Party had "infiltrated" the government at every level, and had used the budget cuts...

    And it continues to get sillier and sillier: The richest 1 percent of Americans save about half their incomes, while most of the rest of us save between 6 and 10 percent. Being rich means you already have most of what you want and need. Each additional acquisition yields a sharply declining level of satisfaction: That second yacht isn’t nearly as exciting as the first.So when the top 1 percent rakes in more than 20 percent of total income – twice the share it had 30 years ago – there’s insufficient demand for all the goods and services the economy...

    The economy has stalled. Friday’s jobs report for April was even more disappointing than March. Employers added only 115,000 new jobs, down from March’s number (the Bureau of Labor Statistics revised the March number upward to 154,000, but that’s still abysmal relative to what’s needed). We need well over 250,000 new jobs per month in order to begin to whittle down the vast number of jobs lost in the Great Recession. At least 125,000 new jobs are necessary each month just to keep up with an expanding population of working-age people. With only 115,000 jobs in April, the hole is...
