The Rigging of American Politics

Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court by an unpopular president who won 3 million fewer votes than the runner-up.

Trump’s State Department Tweets About #InternationalWomensDay (While Wrecking Women’s Health Care)

In several tweets on Wednesday afternoon, the State Department celebrated International Women’s Day on Thursday, March 8, saying that it was committed to helping and “empowering” women around the world. But the tweets come after several decisions in the past year that would undermine women’s health care globally, and that disconnect was not lost on HuffPost’s senior political reporter Laura Bassett.

Women’s March Inc., which organized the event in Washington, has encouraged more protests. But a new group is focused on winning elections, especially in red states.

Amber Selman-Lynn wanted to help plan a women’s march in Mobile, Ala., this month to mark the first anniversary of last year’s huge protests across the country. The day had been significant for her.

With no experience in political activism, she had helped organize a bus full of women to go from Mobile to Washington. After they came back from the euphoric trip, they formed a group called Mobile Marchers that met monthly. They spoke up for the Affordable Care Act at town-hall-style meetings, and knocked on doors for the Alabama Senate candidate Doug Jones, the Democrat who beat Roy S. Moore in a stunning victory last month.
