Dear Donald Trump: Yes, the Main Reason You Won is Because of Russia’s Help

Whether you’re someone who believes Donald Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election is irrelevant. The fact remains that Russia launched a sophisticated and multifaceted cyber attack against the United States with the ultimate goals of dividing this country and keeping Hillary Clinton from becoming president. Without Russia’s help, whether it was coordinated with […]

Donald Trump Should Be Embarrassed After Farcical ‘Fake News Awards’ Spectacularly Backfire

Ultimately, eleven “fake news awards” were handed out by our ridiculous so-called “president” this week. Of course, the majority of these “awards” had little to do with inaccurate reporting, let alone “fake news.” If anything, these “awards” highlighted how ethical most of these networks and news organizations are when it comes to correcting mistakes and […]

On Thursday, Walmart Once Again Proved What an Unethical, Full of B.S. Company It Is

Once upon a time, I worked for Sam’s Club, which is owned by Walmart. When Forward Progressives first launched, I still had a lot of ties to my days working there, which meant I got quite a few “inside stories” as to how the company was operating internally. Such as an article I wrote exposing […]

10 Things Republicans Believe About Democrats That Aren’t Actually True

In the past I’ve written a couple of articles concerning propaganda, myths, and conspiracies Republicans believe are true, yet actually aren’t. When you really sit back and look at what millions of Republican voters all over the country believe versus what reality actually tells us, it’s stunning how there are so many people in this […]

There’s a Huge Aspect to the Russia Facebook Ads Story that Needs to Be Discussed

It’s no secret that Russia was heavily involved in trying to influence last year’s election. While we’ve known about the cyber attacks launched against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign, it wasn’t until fairly recently that we learned Russia operatives had spent at least $100k buying ads on Facebook targeting certain people, demographics, groups, and […]

GOP’s Twitter Account Tries Attacking Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-All Plan, Fails Miserably

It’s no secret that most Republicans oppose any mention of a single-payer/Medicare-for-All health care plan. Despite the fact that nearly every other major country on Earth has some form of universal health care system in place for its citizens, the vast majority of the GOP is staunchly against ending the for-profit model we have here […]

5 Cowardly Ways Republicans Con People Into Voting Against Their Own Interests

When it comes to Republican voters, one thing that baffles many people on the left is why millions of Americans vote for a party that clearly doesn’t represent and/or fight for their own best interests. Election after election, poor and middle class Republican voters from all over the country proudly cast their votes for GOP […]

“So I Ran for Congress”: Sneak Preview Redux

In 2016, Arik Bjorn ran for Congress against Joe “You Lie!” Wilson as the Democratic Party / Green Party fusion candidate in South Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District. Arik has been a regular contributor to Forward Progressives since 2013. Below is an interview excerpt from Arik’s new book, So I Ran for Congress, which is available in paperback or on Kindle via […]

Addressing the Idiocy of One of the Most Absurd Conservative Memes I’ve Seen

It’s not often I write an article addressing some random Internet meme that I’ve seen on social media (though it has happened). With that said, if there’s an exceptionally egregious one that I see being passed around much more than usual, that’s when I feel it needs to be addressed. For instance, this meme which […]

Dear Trump Supporters: Fox News & the Conservative Media are Lying to You (Video)

It’s not a coincidence that political discourse in this country has rapidly deteriorated over the last 20 or so years, which is the same amount of time America’s most-watched conservative entertainment network, Fox News, has existed. The network that once used the slogan “Fair and Balanced” has been anything but, often serving as nothing more […]
