The REAL Bosox Curse Was Racism, NOT the Bambino Just after World War II, the Red Sox shunned not one but TWO players as great as Babe Ruth. And it happened not just from stupidity, but also from explicitly stated racism. The two passed-over African Americans both went to New York, one to the Dodgers, the other to the Giants. Their names are hard for a Sox fan to say, but here they are: Jackie Robinson and Willie Mays.

Puerto Rico Goes Back Door to Solartopia and the Corporate Media Blacks It Out Puerto Rico has made history by becoming -- briefly -- the largest US territory or state to be powered almost entirely by renewable energy. The corporate media has done all it can to black the story out.

Trumputin's "Policies" on Guns, Drugs, Puerto Rico, Golf, Mueller and Russian Election Theft Are All About Mob Money Of course, the US itself has flipped scores of national elections around the world since the 1890s. That would include Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union, when the CIA illegally installed the drunken Mafioso idiot Boris Yeltsin. Trumputin is our imperial vulture come home to roost.

It's Time to Deal With Trumputin's Second Amendment Idiocy Trumputin and those like him are criminally insane when it comes to (among so many other things) guns. That the slumlord-in-chief has issued a statement blaming the victims, and without mentioning gun control, is par for his course.

Will We Get Trumputin's Tax Returns Along With the Nunes Memo? Stopping Trumputin will require the full force of the social democratic movement ignited by Bernie Sanders, riding the popular wave of BlackLivesMatter, Occupy, etc. Only a massive grassroots uprising can stop the fascist coup now taking place. It's time for the social democrat, true democracy grassroots to rise up to protect our common humanity and our Mother Earth.

Trump's Assault on Solar Masks an Epic Crisis in the Nuclear Industry A major crisis in the nuclear power industry is threatening to shut four high-profile reactors, with more shutdowns to come. These closures could pave the way for thousands of new jobs in wind and solar, offsetting at least some of the losses from Trump's attack.

Like those elections, these are conflicts we cannot afford to lose.

The bill is co-sponsored by Democratic Senators Ed Markey, Richard Blumenthal and Democratic Representatives Nadia Velazquez and Darren Soto along with Democrat Stacey Plaskett, the Virgin Islands' non-voting Representative.

Trump's Budget Assault on the Environment Packs a Wallop The administration's budget cuts $2.4 billion from the EPA's operating funds -- roughly 31 percent -- taking the agency's annual budget from $8.1 billion to $5.7 billion, the smallest since it was formed in 1970. These cuts will cripple regulation of air and water quality, strip oversight of a wide range of land management programs, and loosen restrictions on chemical emissions from industrial facilities.

If Trump or any of his staff or associates conspired with the Russians to thus win the US Presidency, it would clearly be an impeachable offense. The legal ramifications would ignite a Constitutional crisis even before Trump could take office.

Since the Diablo license is soon up for renewal, and its operations depend on federal subsidies (most importantly for liability insurance), a Sanders victory in Tuesday's California primary might mark a step toward shutting Diablo. But far more important is that Sanders' supporters stick with the issue. To make a real difference, Sanders voters in California and elsewhere must escalate their activism after they vote.

Transmission lines have been blown up. Power to at least two major nuclear power stations has been "dangerously" cut. Without emergency backup, those nukes could lose coolant to their radioactive cores and spent fuel pools. They could then melt or explode, as at Fukushima.
