Progressives led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other newly elected representatives are on the offensive for a Green New Deal. Writing in The Atlantic, Robinson Meyer calls the Green New Deal “one of the most interesting—and strategic—left-wing policy interventions from the Democratic Party in years.” This past Monday, AOC joined by Bernie Sanders, Bill McKibben, Van Jones, and others for a Facebook Town Hall, “Solving the Climate Crisis,” to turn up the heat for climate action. And, yes America, we can pay for it, but it will change everything. H/T Naomi Klein and the LEAP.

Then as if to underscore the need for bold, courageous action, scientists announced on Wednesday that instead of declining, carbon emissions are reaching the highest levels in history.

Someone let Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez take over the communications department for the House Dems? This week she burned Mike Huckabee by telling him on Twitter to leave the bullshit to Sarah Huckabee Sanders because she’s much better at it. AOC also takes on living wages for Congressional staffers and the system of unpaid internships in DC.

Robert Mueller and Leakin’ Lyin James Comey will be front and center today at the Mueller is expected to show his cards with what he’s got from Manafort and Cohen. Gonna get craaaaazyyyy!

Former President George H.W. Bush passed away. Trump receives accolades for not being an asshat during the funeral.

Milo Yiannopoulos now more than $2 million in debt. Apparently the troll stepped into the sunlight.

The Republican Party ups the ante when it comes to breaking all political norms to maintain power. State GOP lawmakers are using the lame-duck session to strip newly elected Democrats from being able to exercise power.

Lindsey Williams’ story is starting to get some national traction with coverage from The Intercept.  Philadelphia becomes the second biggest city in the country to pass Fair Workweek Legislation.  The ordinance forces fast food, retail and hotel employers to set predictable work schedules for their employees.

Pentagon “scrambling” to reorganize and make way for the Space Force. On Dec. 7, 1972, NASA launched the last crew to land on the moon with the Apollo 17 mission.
