Welcome to the New Era of The Liberal Patriot
Expanded coverage of American politics and global affairs. An evening news digest. New contributors. A survey research program. Policy roundtables.
Starting today, The Liberal Patriot (TLP) is pleased to announce its expansion from a part-time newsletter into a full-time online publication and non-profit organization. In addition to a new logo and branding, TLP will now feature twice the amount of coverage of American politics, public policy, and international affairs.
From its inception in early 2021, TLP’s mission has been consistent: Provide honest analysis and original commentary to renew liberal values and advance American interests. In a time of rising extremist views across the country, The Liberal Patriot remains grounded in basic American values of equal dignity and rights for all people, pluralism, and the common good.
Importantly, the newsletter will remain free for all subscribers—and readers from all backgrounds and ideological perspectives are welcome at The Liberal Patriot.
Above all, TLP is dedicated to developing a contemporary vision of liberalism consistent with Franklin Roosevelt’s famous Four Freedoms: freedom of speech and worship; freedom from want and fear.
This newsletter will remain TLP’s primary outlet for analysis and opinion pieces, with additional features launching over the next few months including:
An afternoon news roundup Monday-Friday, called TL(PM) Digest, providing analysis of domestic politics and foreign affairs from TLP’s “pro-worker, pro-family, pro-America” editorial perspective.
Expanded newsletter posts on current events and ideological debates in three categories: TLP Global, TLP Ideas, and TLP Politics.
A new roster of regular and occasional TLP guest contributors writing on topics from economics and social policy to American politics and elections to national security and global affairs.
A regular column from former Ohio congressman and U.S. Senate candidate, Tim Ryan, entitled, “Dispatches from the Heartland.”
A new TLP survey research program, conducted with YouGov, that will provide 5 waves of original data throughout the year leading up to the presidential primaries in 2024.
TLP policy research and roundtable discussions focused in key areas affecting American national interests including China and government reform.
New TLP contributors will include: Elaine Kamarck and Bill Galston, both at the Brookings Institution; Timothy Bartik, senior economist at the Upjohn Institute; Danielle Pletka and Katherine Zimmerman, both at the American Enterprise Institute; Sheri Berman at Barnard College; author and journalist John Judis; Richard Kahlenberg at Georgetown University; Musa al-Gharbi at Columbia University; Andrew Levison of The Democratic Strategist; author and journalist Hisham Melhem; Michael Baharaeen, director of research at Blue Compass Strategies; and Seth Moskowitz, an editor of Persuasion. More contributors will be announced throughout the year.
We’re thrilled to bring these and other new voices to TLP readers and provide a range of viewpoints and analyses of domestic politics and international affairs.
We’d love it if you would help spread the word about TLP, either by sharing our posts with others or encouraging them to sign up for the free newsletter.

We greatly appreciate all our readers sticking with us over the past two years. We hope you like the new phase of our work!
