Pope Francis vs. USA imperialism

I think everyone knows or suspected that the CIA ran the assassination of Archbishop Oscar Romero, so this is a very interesting canonization: Pope Francis is soon to beatify the late Monseñor Óscar Romero, the archbishop of El Salvador who was assassinated in 1980 by a right-wing, pro-capitalist death squad. Unlike others whom Francis has […]

Let’s see if we can’t hold the votes together for the next round. But yes, it was sweet: A seemingly unstoppable coalition of the powerful assembled to advance the Trans Pacific Partnership trade bill: A Democratic president aligned with the Republican majority in both chambers of Congress and the full lobbying might of Corporate America.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Yeah, because look how well Mitt Romney did: NEW YORK — Wall Street has a message for bank-bashing U.S. populist politicians: Put down the pitchforks or you could wind up like Ed Miliband.

The cost of rising up

Great Radley Balko column. You can easily skip the first half about Hillary Clinton and the columns written about her criminal justice platform, it’s mostly inside baseball. Start in the middle, where he writes: And this is why I want Richard Cohen and Lloyd Green to meet Antonio Morgan. Really good article about how the […]

It’s about time someone brought this up: The H-1B visa issue rarely surfaces during presidential races, and that’s one thing that makes the entrance of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) into the 2016 presidential race interesting. As a senator, Sanders does not have a lot of political clout. He’s an independent socialist whose major campaign contributors […]

Sam Brownback might be one of the worst Republican governors in the nation — and he’s up against some stiff competition: At least eight Kansas school districts are starting summer break early in response to the state’s midyear education funding cut.
