Gay Republicans locked out of conservative conference because of "diametrically opposed beliefs" the Log Cabin Republicans have never asked to be a part of the conference before, so the Institute hasn't had to worry about being totally grossed out by them before. Also, the GOP's string-pullers are old and they cannot help but grip onto their archaic social views--even in the face of the changing views within their own party's youth.

Video released showing Alabama police paralyzing elderly Indian grandfather; officer arrested The video was just released of an elderly grandfather being slammed to the ground so hard by an Alabama police officer that it severed his vertebra and paralyzed the man. As you will see in the video, the police then attempt to force the man to walk and believe he's resisting arrest when his legs won't work -- not knowing that they broke his neck.

McConnell gets a taste of his own medicine, reports "I'm perplexed" Democrats are doing a fraction of what Republicans have habitually done -- full Republican tactics here would involve Democrats taking an additional, unrelated policy hostage in exchange for their support -- and Republicans are acting befuddled and outraged.

Republicans Move To Gut Social Security Benefits on Their First Day in Power The "demonization" of those receiving Disability payments is part of the broader overall GOP strategy of shifting money out of Social Security to pay for the Republicans' main priority -- tax cuts for corporations and multi-millionaires. Republicans are declaring war on middle class Americans, to pay for tax cuts for the wealthiest.

Michele Bachmann warns of "illiterate foreign nationals" voting in 2016 Rep. Michele Bachmann is going a little off the Republican Party's desired message on President Obama's planned action on immigration. The official Republican message is that their anger is about executive overreach, not about scary brown people. Bachmann, though, is definitely focused on the scary brown people.

Republican Gov. Mike Pence says not giving food to the unemployed will "ennoble" them I'm not sure lower-income Americans are going to be able to survive all the "ennobling" things Republicans are doing for them. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker already explained how preventing Americans from obtaining life-saving health insurance will help them "live the American Dream"; now fellow Republican governor and do-gooder Mike Pence wants to further "ennoble" state residents by cutting off their food stamps.

About last night ... So what's ahead? Well, we have a great cycle ahead of us, with boatload of Senate pickup opportunities, with Dem presidential-year turnout on tap. The GOP has a two-year Senate rental. The presidential math still looks brutal for the GOP. Demographic changes continue unabated. But we've got to look beyond this boom-bust electoral cycle.

Koch brothers freak out in response to Rolling Stone expose Tim Dickinson's fantastic expose of the Koch brothers in the latest issue of Rolling Stone has gotten plenty of attention. For very good reason: it's a well-sourced, deep dive into the very toxic--literally toxic--business that earned the Kochs enough money to buy up an entire political party.

Republican senators seek to block funds to combat Ebola On one hand we've got an existential threat that has conservative pundits in a frothing tizzy over how Obama isn't leading and how the government isn't responding and we're all going to die, and on the other hand those conservatives vow to block the government from spending money on responding to it.

And unless they can find some way to keep us peasants from resorting to the pitchforks, their wet dream of a democratic market economy as the end point of human history is in danger.

Fighting racism " one keystroke at a time How many times have you clicked on a news article or a blog piece, or watched a YouTube, only to find that the comments section attached to it is a slime pit of some of the most vile racist comments imaginable? Too often, your response may be like mine has been at times--you shrug and decide, "I don't read comments." You click away, and move on to the next story, web page or video.

Former McConnell campaign manager subpoenaed in bribery probe one month before resignation The key questions about Kesari appear to be whether he orchestrated the payments to the Iowa legislator who pleaded guilty through a shell company pretending to be a video production outfit. If that proves to be the case, then it would be only fair to to ask whether the same thing happened with the money he was paid by McConnell.

Dumbest Police Chief in America I am scratching my head over how it is humanly possible to be as clueless as the St. Louis County and Ferguson police departments. To make one mistake is understandable but to have EVERYTHING you do be a complete f*ck up is astounding.

The End of Order is a Feature Not a Bug The events in Missouri this week demand explanation and redress. The parents of Michael Brown, who raised a son to be everything society claims to ask of young men, deserve to know why his life was stolen... But I believe they also beg a larger question of us all: Why are our police no longer our police? Why do our governments serve only a tiny few of us, while demanding obedience and their very paychecks from all.

And now this woman who was clearly fighting like hell to take care of her daughter the best she could has been arrested, has lost her job, and is under investigation by the Department of Social Services.

Supreme Court rules women can be discriminated against in health decisions The U.S. Supreme Court has given corporations even more personhood by deciding that they can have religious beliefs in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores. They ruled that closely held companies are exempt from the contraceptive coverage mandate for their employees' health insurance, and are exempt from that provision of the Affordable Care Act. The decision only applies to women.

And all of them represent biases that are a long-standing part of what can be called the Fox News Creed: Racism, Guns, Anti-Government, and Tea Party.

Former Christie aide says lane closures were political payback there was a conscious effort by Christie's political team to run up the score and both Fort Lee and its mayor were targets of that effort. And just before Christie's deputy chief of staff ordered the lane closures, she wanted to know whether Sokolich had changed his mind about endorsing Christie. What now seems clear beyond a shadow of doubt is that the actions were taken to advance Christie's political ambition.

He also faces a changed country: its a lot browner, and his potential supporters have gotten a lot more racist and crazier. But suddenly, he is now the GOP front-runner.

But the issue isn't so much whether Perry has the power to veto legislation he opposes, it's whether it is legal for him to use the veto to achieve unrelated political goals.

John Boehner's ready to pop an orange aneurysm over states "cheating" to preserve food stamps It's a fascinating world we live in, where following the letter of the law is now considered "cheating" and "fraud" by Republicans (as long as you're helping the disadvantaged, of course). And note that it's not just Democrats who've increased heating assistance -- Pennsylvania's Republican governor has signed on as well.

Keystone Isn't Any Normal Pipeline We can estimate how much carbon-driven climate change will cost society in years to come by adding up its effects on things like agriculture, human health, and property damage from floods. They call this the social cost of carbon. And when you run the numbers on Keystone, you see that tar sands oil could cause up to $128 billion in extra damage from climate change over the pipeline's lifetime.

Actual photo of the moment Democrats lost the white working class vote It is taken as virtual gospel among progressives that Democrats once had a lock on white working class voters, but that position quickly eroded in the 1990s and later as party leaders pursued cuts to social programs, Wall Street deregulation, and anti-union trade agreements. But what if the Democratic position among the white working class hasn't eroded at all outside the south?

Ending the criminal insanity of the concept of corporations as people if corporations are going to be viewed as people in the rights department, then let them be people elsewise, too. No special protections, for example, from the death penalty. When their crimes warrant such punishment the way an actual individual's would, end their existence by tearing up their charter and turning them into non-entities.

Retirees could face pension cuts under plan being considered by Congress Continuing to attack pensions and thereby promoting these vastly inadequate personal accounts that are speeding the U.S. toward a generation of elders living in dire poverty, is a disaster waiting to happen. Unfortunately, if Congress weakens pensions, the disaster may not have to wait that long.
