Congressman Who Voted For Drug Testing Food Stamp Recipients Busted For Cocaine

Representative Trey Radel was a major proponent of Republican legislation to make food stamp recipients submit to drug tests before receiving assistance. The proposal for those on food stamps to urinate in cups to prove they’re not on drugs received widespread praise from Republicans. But only a month after he backed the proposal, police busted the Florida Republican on a charge of cocaine possession. That’s right, the Republican politician who wanted to drug test poor people – those tests incurring huge […] Read More

Grayson, Toomey lead in small-donor funding in competitive Senate races

The 2016 presidential candidates are well ensconced in the money race, but they are not the only ones infected with donation fever. Candidates in competitive Senate races are trying to raise as much money as they possibly can, while also seeking to boast that they receive more small-dollar donations, a sign that they are more in touch with voters and the grassroots. Thus far, it looks like Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) and Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) have the most […] Read More

TPP Death Pool: more Pharmaceutical Destruction is Coming

Jon Rappoport http://www.activistpost.com June 2, 2015 (To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.) “After any agreement is achieved between high-level criminals, there are two basic phases. First, conflicts arise, and the settlements are crude and sometimes painful. Second, the criminal parties realize, like the ‘gentlemen’ they are, that the jackpot they are sharing is big enough for everyone. So they unify their stance. They focus in on their real target: the public.” —The Underground, Jon […] Read More

While you wern’t looking Congress endorsed Global ID cards

This week the US House passed the “Girls Count Act “(S. 802), legislation that already passed the Senate and so was sent  directly to the President for his signature. This legislation passed the House last November, but was not  taken up by the Senate at that time. So why should supporters of individual liberty and limited goverment care about a bill designed to promote the rights of girls in developing countries? Well,as I wrote last year: Congress has no […] Read More

Why the Right-Wing Is as Obsessed with Brainwashing Your Kid as With Looting Social Security

We must teach our children US history accurately and inform the world about the essentials of human rights. Sure, the war on education helps Republican lawmakers destroy unions and slash government spending, but it’s our history of progressive change that makes Conservatives hate accurate depictions of our past. Just think about Social Security, The New Deal, freeing the slaves, or child labor laws… all represent great turning points in our nation that progressives made possible. The fact is, our […] Read More

Two Bills Just Introduced To Congress Will Federally Legalize Cannabis In The US

 Friday, February 20th marked an interesting moment in the case for cannabis legalization – U.S. Representatives Jared Polis (D-CO) and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) introduced two separate bills in Congress to legalize adult-use marijuana at the federal level. The first bill, ‘The Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act‘, was submitted by Polis, and would act as a safety net for any state wishing to legalize cannabis, meaning they would no longer have to worry about intervention at the Federal level. The second bill with […] Read More

Senator With DUI Says 1891 Rule Should Make Him ‘Privileged From Arrest’

He was busted drinking and driving, but a Kentucky state senator says that he should have his charges dismissed. Why? Because of a rule that originated from before there were even cars on the road. Senator Brandon Smith cites an 1891 rule that says state lawmakers are “privileged from arrest” during legislative sessions. Smith’s request was formally filed as a motion by his attorney. It is based on Section 43 in the Kentucky state constitution. That section was added […] Read More

The GOP’s Coming Horror Show: Why the New Congress May Be Worse than You Think

>My advice: Get the popcorn ready! If there is one thing on which I wish I’d laid a bet over the past few years it’s that despite their successful strategy to make the economic recovery as weak as possible, the minute it started to substantially improve, the conservatives would be standing at the head of the line taking credit for it. It was as predictable as the sun coming up tomorrow that they would claim their obstructive tactics resulted in Morning […] Read More

2014: Hightower: It’s the Immigration Fearmongers We Should Be Worried About, Not Their Ebola Hype

Trying to spread panic about immigrants and their risks is highly damaging to society. One thing you can say about Rick Perry is that he sticks to his guns. If one of his policy proposals turns out to be dumb, by gollies, he will double-down on dumb. For example, in his current re-run for the GOP presidential nomination, the “Oops” governor has repositioned himself as an expert on border security. As such, he milked a lot of political PR […] Read More

Six States Where GOP Voter Suppression Tactics Could Sway The Outcome

As another federal election cycle heads to a close, Jim Crow’s ghost rises. Anyone who pays attention to American election knows that the Republican Party’s favorite tactic to try on win on Election Day is to change the rules of who can vote and which ballots get counted. This is what happened in presidential elections in Florida in 2000, in Ohio in 2004, and it is behind 2014’s ongoing courtroom fights over allowing same-day voter registration, imposing tougher voter […] Read More
