The Leadership Institute -- Training Operation for Right-Wingers We're familiar with Fox, the TV propaganda arm of the Trump administration, remaining a far right-wing outlet under Rupert Murdoch. And we're becoming aware of other radical-right efforts to indoctrinate people.

Donald Trump Has Been the Worst President in the History of the United States Donald Trump has been the worst president in the history of the United States.

Asking for Nuclear Disaster -- NRC Considers Extending Nuclear Power Plant Operating Licenses to 100 Years Nuclear power plants when they began being constructed were not seen as running for more than 40 years because of radioactivity embrittling metal parts and otherwise causing safety problems.

Robocall Scourge We are being subject to a scourge of robocalls. Robocall Index reports 58 robocalls were made in the U.S. in 2019, up from 48.7 billion in 2018. In New York, a bill -- which passed its State Senate last year -- is pending in the State Assembly.
