"Democratic Socialism" -- Bring it on Corporate Socialists! Crooked Donald Trump, the erstwhile failed gambling czar and corporate welfare king, is assailing Bernie Sanders for his "radical socialism." How ludicrous given Trump's three-year giveaway of taxpayer assets and authorities to giant corporations a perfect portrait of crony capitalism.

Misleading Categories and Trump's Swamps Trump has continued the endless, illegal, brutal wars in several countries - wars that he pledged to end. He defies all Congressional subpoenas for witnesses and documents from committees that are investigating corruption, including his administration's regulatory responsibilities to America. His actions are harmful to all Americans.
For Trump every day is a reality show in which he must dominate the news cycle with his destructive personal politics of distraction, From InText

Only Civic Driven Voter Turnout Can Defeat Tweeter Trump Well-funded, vigorous voter turnout drives in ten states that are driven exclusively by the civic community. Freed of the shackles of the serial loser DNC, this independent civic drive can easily turn the tide in these key electoral swing states.

Let's Start a Kavanaugh Watch to Check All Five Corporate Judges A new Kavanaugh Watch group -- lean and sharp -- needs to be created to publicize the Five Corporatist Judges. Their unjust decisions, hiding behind stylized plausibility and casuistry, need to be unmasked and regularly relayed to the American people. Their speeches to the Federalist Society and other plutocratic audiences need to be publicized and critiqued. Importantly their refusal to recuse themselves must be reported

Trump: Making America Dread Again Trump's marauders are raging through one agency after another, revoking, freezing, or suspending lifesaving health/safety protections. Weaker job safety, auto safety, air and water pollution standards, and pesticide protections spell death, sickness, and illnesses with their attendant family anguish and costs, including to taxpayers.

Can the Politicians Heed the Lessons of Hurricane Harvey? While Trump tweets and hopefully reconsiders his earlier cruel budget cuts for FEMA and other life-saving federal agencies -- such as the Centers for Disease Control and the EPA -- the people are swinging into action on the ground. May they swing into wise and just action in the next elections -- both as new candidates and, high horizon, informed voters. For there is a much better America to be had.

A Clarion Call for our Country's Pillars to Demand Justice Given the retrograde pits inhabited by our ruling politicians and the avaricious over-reach of myopic big-business bosses, the self-described pillars of our society must step up to reverse the decline of our country. Stand tall in support of justice in these trying times.

Trump's Hundred Days of Rage and Rapacity The Lawless-loving corporatists have worked overtime to besmirch the word "regulation" (or law and order for corporations) and edify the word "deregulation," to help bring about their dream state of dismantled or weakened regulation.

Why the Democrats Keep Losing the Congress Why isn't the Democratic Party landsliding the worst and cruelest Republican Party in the past 162 years? Just take a glance at their record votes and you'll wonder why the Republican representatives don't just incorporate themselves and be done with any pretense that they are real people.

Harvard Lawless School and You If you cannot use the law to pursue your rights -- say health coverage -- under fine-print contracts or gain adequate compensation for your wrongful injuries, you are being strapped by lawlessness through the design of the power elites.

The Long-Distance Rebound of Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders is facing the verdict of closed primaries in many states which bar independent voters from voting for any of the Democratic or Republican candidates. Pointedly, Senator Sanders won only one of the five states with primaries on April 26, 2016: Rhode Island. Why? Because that state has an open primary allowing independent voters, heavily pro-Sanders, to carry him to victory.

Why US brain drain harms developing countries Nobody is forcing skilled workers from less developed countries to come to the US other than dictators, but if the US wants peace, stability and better livelihoods to have a chance, it has to tell its giant corporations to pull back on their gluttonous appetite to recruit the "cream of the crop" from these countries and invest in American skills.

Bush The Bush/Cheney sociocide of Iraq, together with the loss of tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers' lives, countless injuries and illnesses, registers, with the passage of time, no recognition by you that you did anything wrong nor have you accepted responsibility for the illegality of your military actions without a Congressional declaration of war.

In addition these "mad dogs" are in a feeding frenzy and cannot see any reality beyond their pack.
