President Biden is doing great. Would you like to help him and other Dem leaders to learn what they need to know, to keep going in this direction — of aggressively standing up to Republicans trying to destroy democracy? If so, please join me in contacting President Biden and other Dem leaders.

Please also ask your friends and neighbors to write also. We don’t have much time before the midterm elections. Democratic leaders need to keep pushing forward in this constructive direction as effectively as possible, to give Dems the best chance of getting the most Dems possible, elected to the House & Senate.

The contact form is here:

You are welcome to cut and paste all or part of my letter to President Biden. Here it is below. I will also write to Vice President Harris about this same issue, revising the letter a bit to apply to her, and will write to other Dem leaders as well. Please join me in that. Contact form for the VP is the same as for the president, above.

Democratic National Committee:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer

Here’s my letter to the POTUS below.

Dear President Biden

Your approval rating has climbed 10 points in last few weeks.

You’re doing great. I’m writing to help you keep going in this direction.

Very aggressively standing up to GOPers trying to destroy democracy is a somewhat new approach for you. But some people have been doing it or writing about it for years. Please take full advantage of their expertise.

One of these is political scientist & Dem consultant Rachel Bitecofer. Please consider hiring her as an advisor.

Another person your staff should be aware of, is writer Brian Beutler. He’s Editor-in-Chief at Crooked Media, whose podcast has more listeners than MSNBC. Your staff should read his Big Tent newsletter daily.

Also, you need to be aware: Mainstream media have a Right Wing bias — That is, they often try to “cover both political sides” as if they were equally extreme, equally truthful etc. But they’re not.

MSMedia are highly influential, so many people believe a lot of “both sides” disinformation that MSMedia spread constantly. MANY people believe it. That may include you, Dem consultants & your staff.

You need to be aware of this. You are Democrat. That’s who we — your voters — voted for. You do know Dems are not equally as extreme as MAGAs. Yet there are all kinds of other “both sides” talking points that you & your staff are in danger of believing because MSMedia spread them constantly.

The two best writers to keep you from being fooled by Right Wing disinfo in MSMedia, are Jay Rosen, journalism professor at NYU, whose site is at

& journalist Dan Froomkin who used to work for WaPo & now has a site at

Driftglass is another writer who’s written well about this subject for years. His blog:

Let me know if I can help.

Thanks, everyone who’s willing to write, for your contributions to the village it takes to save democracy. I’ll see you good folks late.
