The GOP Is Now Bragging About Voter Suppression

(Photo: Beanbag Amerika; Edited: LW / TO) Voting, Thomas Paine once said, “is the beating heart of democracy.” It’s what makes our democracy possible. Without it, Paine said, “man would be reduced to slavery.” It’s for this very reason, of course, that conservatives have worked since the founding of our republic to make it harder or downright impossible for people who are not part of the political and economic elite to vote. This conservative war on voting has taken on a number of different forms, Jim Crow being just the most obvious example, but it has always been based on one simple idea: conservatives lose elections when more people vote, and win elections when fewer people vote. As American Legislative Exchange Council founder and Reagan advisor Paul Weyrich put it back in 1980, “our leverage in the elections… goes up as the voting populace goes down.” This has been […] Read More

Big money — if not the GOP establishment — has been with Ted Cruz from the start

Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is the first choice of three of this cycle’s top five contributors to outside groups so far. (AP Photo/Morry Gash) This piece was cross-posted with Moyers & Company.  Sen. Ted Cruz, effectively anointed by Jeb Bush this week as the Republican party’s last best hope to stop Donald Trump from becoming its presidential nominee, was emphatically not the standard bearer the GOP establishment had in mind at the beginning of this campaign. The brash Texas senator’s anti-Washington rhetoric – often aimed at leaders of his own party – made him a tea party favorite and has won him an impressive network of small donors. Contributors of $200 or less made up nearly 42 percent of the $66.2 million in individual contributions that Cruz has raised so far for his presidential campaign committee. These grassroots donors are the kind who have the committment to […] Read More

How the Voting System is Used to Enslave You to a Private Corporation

In the USA, many Americans are watching the 2016 Presidential Debate, so they can make an “informed” decision to vote for the candidate that they believe is the best to lead their country. What most Americans do not realize is that all presidential candidates are “actors” applying for a job of a corporation called the United States. After being hired, they are trained to be professional actors and liars, so that they can fool the American people to support the United States, Inc., and help spread its franchise throughout the world. The word franchise means “the right or license granted by a company to an individual or group to market its products or services in a specific territory”. But did you know that the wordfranchise can also mean “the right to vote”? Like any corporate employee, when a presidential candidate wins an election and is sworn into office, he […] Read More

Computer Programmer Testifies He Helped Rig Voting Machines

“It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.” – Joseph Stalin (allegedly) One thing in US history is consistent throughout every single election cycle — allegations of voter fraud. These allegations, however, are not the ramblings of a kook with tinfoil wrapped around his head, they are substantiated and reach as high as the Supreme Court. Don’t believe it? Ask Al Gore and George W. Bush. By Matt Agorist | The Free Thought Project | March 7, 2016 If you think that the ruling class would leave it up to the voters to decide who gets elected, you should think again. Every single candidate who actually challenges the status quo becomes a target. This year is one of the worst years ever for voter fraud, as it’s been captured on […] Read More

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 tax-payer expenses – was himself using drugs. “It’s really interesting it came on the heels of Republicans voting on everyone who had access to food stamps get drug tested,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said to BuzzFeed. “It’s like, what?” The House approved an amendment by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.), back in the summer of 2013, that allowed states to decide whether or not to test people on food stamps. The […] Read More

Should Your Political Beliefs Be Protected by College Discrimination Policies?

The inclusions of political and intellectual diversity are both tactics straight from the playbook of conservative polemicist David Horowitz. With another college semester well underway, college students across the country have already forgotten about the syllabi handed out the first week of class. Most include a nondiscrimination clause, letting the students know the protected classes and aspects of their identity. The list is familiar, and often includes race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, and veteran’s status. But at the University of Colorado, there is a peculiar addition: political affiliation and philosophy. This raises a lot of questions. The ones I want to try to answer here are: How did it get there? Who is it meant to protect? Will it do more harm than good? Short answers first. It’s the result of conservative efforts to insert themselves and anti-science views that align with their ideology […] Read More

Hawaii Moves One Step Closer to Declaring Sovereignty from U.S. Government

Honolulu, HI — This week, Native Hawaiians initiated an historical election that may grant them sovereignty from the United States and the state of Hawaii, itself, after well over a century of colonial rule. More than 95,000 indigenous people will elect delegates to a constitutional convention, scheduled for this winter, when they will work to create a government that serves and represents Native Hawaiians — the only group of indigenous people in the United States currently restricted from forming their own government. In the 19th century, European and American missionaries and traders began settling in Hawaii. They quickly formed a political movement and succeeded in transferring power from the king to his cabinet and the legislature. Though they drafted a new constitution limiting the king’s control, they also limited the voting rights of Asians and Native Hawaiians while granting that right to wealthy non-citizens. When the king died and his […] Read More

Resurgence of the Far Right and the Absence of the Consequential Left

Incumbent politicians and parties, both Center-left and Right, have suffered serious defeats in recent elections. The principal beneficiary has been the extreme Right. Nowhere did the ‘consequential Left’ register a victory, although in a few instances it marginally increased its vote. The one major exception has been Turkey, where the incumbent Erdogan regime scored a ‘victory’ on November 1, 2015 by resorting to widespread violence during the general election campaign to intimidate and silence his opposition after having suffered a sharp (and surprise) defeat five months earlier in June 2015 when secular civil groups, leftists and Kurdish linked parties upset Erdogan’S parliamentary majority. During the recent campaign, Erdogan resumed bombing of Kurdish regions, both inside Turkey and across the border in Syria and Iraq. He shut down opposition newspapers and TV stations, and imprisoned hundreds of secular, leftist activists. Scores of opposition party regional offices were firebombed and wrecked. […] Read More

How Coincidence Theorists (Non-Conspiracy) Are Playing Key Role In Destruction Of America

Given that America for very long time was the symbol of freedom to the world, it is important to point out one particular phenomenon that is destroying America and all of humanity from the inside out is a sickness we see all around us every day and it’s the ‘coincidence theorists’ that scorn at the idea of government conspiracies and claim they are fantasy and fiction. These people are the polar opposite of the so called conspiracy theorists. I thus refer to these brainwashed coincidence theorists, also as the ‘non-conspiracy theorists’ amongst us. These mass media conditioned and inbred coincidence theorists uphold the following belief system: Coincidence theorists believe that all political events from one day to another are simply random unplanned events. They believe that politicians, government bodies, agencies, and committees accept the end results of daily political events as all due to happenstance. They believe chaos and spoof coincidence […] Read More

Mike Huckabee Argues Poor People Should Be Sold Into Slavery If Caught Stealing

Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has some big ideas for the United States criminal justice system. According to Think Progress, the presidential hopeful contends that the government should sell poor people into slavery, if they have been convicted of more or less any crimes – including even stealing food to eat. Yesterday, during an appearance on Mickelson in the Morning, a popular Iowa radio program, the Fox News host told interviewer Jan Mickelson his ideas when Mickelson began by lamenting that the “criminal justice system has been taken over by progressives.” The discussion took a turn to slavery, when Mickelson noted that the Biblical book of Exodus “says, if a person steals, they have to pay it back two-fold, four-fold. If they don’t have anything, we’re supposed to take them down and sell them.” Mickelson argued that slavery is the real way that crime should be deterred. “We indenture […] Read More
