Top Articles of the Week…

  • Austerity Hawks press for 1920’s inequality that triggered depression. There’s two stories. One is about a battle between or within elites, which is important in the 1930s. But there’s a more serious battle, which is between the elites together and the middle class and the working people in the United States. And it’s all relevant to this whole idea about the battles over austerity and the deficit.

  • Are You Better Off Now than 4 Years Ago? For anyone with a short memory, here are some headlines from 2008 that bring it all back into focus how 8 years of Republican Robber Barrons endangered the nation…

  • How Big Business Is Buying the Election. Link to Move to Amend to undo “corporations are people” ruling: We the People, Not We the Corporations.

  • What Bill Clinton Said at DNC — Read it Here. And you’ll never lose another argument with Republicans…

  • Clinton: ‘There Is Not A Single Solitary Example’ Of A Country That Has Succeeded With A Tea Party Philosophy. Former President Bill Clinton blasted the “non-fact-based political debate” surrounding the Republican primary race and Tea Party economic policies which advocate for limited government services and low taxation.

    The Republlican Art of Shameless Hypocrisy…

  • Republicans and the Debt. They built it. They own it. They want to make it worse. Don’t be fooled by the two giant U.S. National Debt clocks at the Republican convention. The clocks were as disingenuous as the crazed Right-wings attack dogs…

  • Paul Ryan Quietly Requested Obamacare Cash. In public, Ryan has cultivated a profile as one of health reform’s most outspoken critics. He savages the Affordable Care Act as an example of “Washington’s reckless spending spree,” as “irresponsible,” and has warned repeatedly that it would place the “federal government squarely in the middle of health-care decisions.” On December 10, 2010, Ryan penned a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services to recommend a grant application for the Kenosha Community Health Center, Inc to develop a new facility in Racine, Wisconsin, an area within Ryan’s district…

  • 11 Things The GOP Doesn’t Want You To Know About The Deficit. More debunking, of biiiig a Republican lie…

    The Evils of Republican Social Darwinism, Racism, and Creationschism…

  • Reasons We Need to Protect America from Texas Politicians. It looks like the influence of Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the right-wing nutcase-creation machine might have tipped Texas Republicans over the edge and into dangerous territory. Their politicians are flying right off the rails. Is it time to think about setting up border checkpoints around Texas to protect ourselves? Even better, maybe we should just build a big fence around the state to keep their elected officials in.

  • The GOP’s Disgusting New Southern Strategy: Take the Vote Away from Blacks, Roll Back the Civil Rights Movement. The GOP’s war on voting rights isn’t new. It harks back to past efforts to alter the political process.

  • Going Undercover at the GOP’s Voter Vigilante Project to Disrupt the November Election. The Republican True the Vote project is a well-funded scheme with training sessions for activists across the country. True the Vote is a voting vigilante group that never should have grown past its Texas cowboy-meets-Tea Party justice roots. Its top leaders have a jaunty, string ‘em up, guilty-until-proven-innocent mindset. They represent the most extreme views on the Right when it comes to voting

    Lies, Lies, Lies: Repubs LUVS Lies…

  • Five Things You Should Know About Solyndra During The 2012 Campaign. If you’ve been paying attention to the issue over the last year, you’ve likely heard the name “Solyndra” so many times it makes you nauseous. If you’re wondering what the GOP claims on Solyndra are all about, here are some facts to put the issue in context.

  • Mainstream News is Censored Propaganda. Important article from the NY Times demonstrating how real journalism covering the criminal political elite in America is basically dead. Even better, is Glenn Greenwald’s article at Salon slamming the complete joke that is the mainstream media. If it isn’t outright lies, it’s smokescreens, downplaying, or deceptions by omission…

  • Bernie Sanders slays GOP ”debt” monster with 5 minutes of pure common sense. Debunking just one of a mountain of Republican lies…

    The Failure of Republican Policies for the 99%…

  • A visual on how employment plummeted under Bush and recovered under Obama.

  • The American Jobs Act that Republicans killed last year. Independent analysis projected the American Jobs Act, which was fully paid for, could create as many as 2 million jobs in 2012. But it didn’t because the desire of obstructionist Republicans was to keep the economy in recession to make Obama look bad… NO JOBS FOR YOU!

  • Some conservatives doing about-face on financial deregulation. Republicans repeatedly claim government regulation is to blame for our economic problems. But one Republican with solid conservative credentials says GOP policies are wrong. “I was an advocate of the deregulation movement and I made … a fundamental mistake, which is that deregulation works fine in industries which do not pervade the economy in their consequences. The financial industry undergirds the entire economy and if it is made riskier by deregulation and collapses and causes widespread bankruptcies the entire economy freezes,”

  • Hoarding: The Economic Policy of #lyinRyan conservatives. Paul Ryan is a devout follower of two things: The Catholic faith, and Supply-Side economics. His belief in that economic theory puts him at odds with his own religion when it comes to taking care of the poor and indigent, but regardless of that self-contradiction, Ryan’s stated economic goals fall right in line with other fellow Supply-Siders…. But what thirty or more years of this economic theory has wrought is anything but prosperity from the top-down.

  • GOP plans for health care would hurt the elderly, poor. The Republican Party’s economic plan purports to save Medicare and Medicaid, create millions of jobs through tax cuts and deregulation and remove loopholes in the tax code. Unfortunately, not one of these claims is valid.

  • Biggest Loser: Eric Cantor. Bob Woodward’s new book, The Price of Politics, is one of the first history books about last summer’s debt crisis and how close the world came to being sent into financial chaos. One person has to to come out looking worse for wear, and it seems to be Eric Cantor.

    Skeletons lurking quietly in the Republican closet…

  • Way To Go, GOP! Keep Those Teen Pregnancies Coming. In other words, Republicans want to ensure that our students don’t learn about safe sex practices, because if they learn that stuff, they will take it as a go-ahead to have sex morning, noon and night. No, no, no. The only thing kids need to know about sex is that they shouldn’t have it.

  • GOP Platform Declares Medicaid Unconstitutional. Republican politicians seized upon a distorted vision of the Constitution’s Tenth Amendment that would leave America nearly incapable of governing itself…top Republicans have claimed that everything from Social Security to Medicare to federal disaster relief to national child labor laws all violate the Constitution. A similarly erroneous vision of the Constitution has now infected the GOP’s party platform.

    The War on Women by Repugnant Republicans…

  • Way To Go, GOP! Keep Those Teen Pregnancies Coming. Republicans want to ensure that our students don’t learn about safe sex practices, because if they learn that stuff, they will take it as a go-ahead to have sex morning, noon and night. No, no, no. The only thing kids need to know about sex is that they shouldn’t have it. And how is that working out for us?

  • What a Republican Future Would Mean for Women’s Health. Last week at the 2012 Republican National Convention, the party made its official stance on women’s health perfectly clear: Outlawing abortion is much more important than protecting a woman’s fundamental right to quality, affordable health care, her ability to have a safe pregnancy, and her access to family planning.

    Republican Global Ruining…

  • The Romney-Ryan Ticket: TRASHING The Clean Energy Future. Despite pledging to protect American employment, Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney opposes critical clean energy policies that will encourage investment and create jobs on American soil.

  • Stealth Deregulation: The Untold Story. Whenever possible, Republican presidents have pursued a policy of widespread deregulation. They have used a variety of stealth tactics to undermine important financial, environmental, consumer and workplace regulations.

  • RandPaul2016 and his radical “New Israel” concept. Rand Paul is running for president in 2016 and is said to have radical plans such as the “New Israel” concept. His idea is to give up on the expensive middle east conflict and relocate all Israeli citizens to the American west giving them public lands as their own separate independent domain as a Commonwealth of the United States. Not a bad idea actually, but unlikely Israeli’s would go along with it, although it is said that Rand Paul would give them no option and would end all U.S. support of Israel in the middle east by 2020…

  • Claiming The Clean Energy Future: A Seven-Point Action Plan For Repowering America. Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention last week ought to serve as an urgent wake-up call to anyone that cares about America’s energy, environmental, and economic future. At the podium, Romney chided President Obama on global warming, and his hoped-for GOP administration is advancing an “energy independence” plan built much more on the polluting industries of the past than the innovative clean technologies of the present and future.

  • In America, when reality is distasteful we ignore it. We Distract Ourselves With Petty Spectacles While the World Goes to Hell…
