How Bernie Sanders trounced Fox on Medicare for All, and why a Carbon Tax could help Pay for It It looks as though Trump is going to run, and try to get the Republicans in the Senate to run, on abolishing Obamacare without having anything ready to take its place except some Trumpian hot air, and the current evidence is that this strategy is a one-way ticket for politicians to the unemployment line.

How Classic Anti-Semitic Tropes are being Marshaled against Ilhan Omar and Muslim-Americans The attacks on Ilhan Omar are frightening for many reasons, but most of all because they repeat classic anti-Semitic charges made by the Nazis in Germany against Jews. Racism is not that complicated, and is always simple-minded and stupid, and so it is not a surprise that contemporary racists can't come up with new tropes for demeaning minorities.

Republicans & Rupert Murdoch Created al-Qaeda when Ilhan Omar's Somalia upheld Scientific Socialism The dishonest smearing of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) by the Rupert Murdoch press, including the New York Post and Fox Cable News, on which the despicable Trump piled on, contains more ironies than her defenders for the most part realize. When a white nationalist terrorist shoots down innocent people, we don't blame all white people or demand that white people apologize on behalf of their disreputable cousins.

Netanyahu's Reelection Further Dooms Millions of Palestinians to Decades of Statelessness, Denial of Basic Rights The Palestinians don't have a state. The Palestine Authority is not a state. It does not control land, air or water. It is so little a state that aliens can waltz into its territory and with impunity, steal the property of the people over which it is supposed to have authority.

Would-be Assassin brands Rep. Ilhan Omar as "Muslim Brotherhood," aping Milstein of Canary Mission The Trumps, Pirros, and Milsteins are creating a hate-filled atmosphere in the United States toward Muslim-Americans and toward a supporters of basic human rights for all, including Palestinians. Trump made fun of Ilhan Omar in front of an audience of Jewish Republicans, saying that she does not like Israel.

Dear Trump: Top 7 Signs Puerto Ricans might be Americans Trump caused a brouhaha by tweeting that Puerto Rican officials "only take from USA," as though they weren't part of the USA! Then his White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley called Puerto Rico "that country" during an interview on MSNBC Live with Hallie Jackson. Puerto Rico has introduced a bill to become a state by 2021. We don't usually let foreign countries become states.

Senators Grill Rick Perry on Transfer of Nuclear Info to Saudi Arabia Despite "Troubling Actions" Secretary of Energy Rick Perry apparently handed out seven authorizations but did not, as he was supposed to according to the Atomic Energy Act, inform the independent Nuclear Regulatory Commission, members of which were grilled by Congress this week, as well. They greeted questions about whether they had been informed of the Part 810 authorizations with silence, stunning Congress.

Did the Same Saudi Hackers who Trapped Khashoggi Target Amazon's Bezos for Nude Photos? The Saudi hackers went after Bezos, obtaining photos of him naked, and broke up his marriage, costing him half his fortune, because of the Washington Post's criticism of Trump and possibly because it wouldn't let Khashoggi's murder go. The Washington Post connection links Bezos and Khashoggi. The Saudi connection links Qatar and Kushner, though it cannot be assumed that he was involved in the Bezos gambit.

Israeli Snipers Kill 4, wound 207 as 40,000 Palestinians March Peacefully in Gaza for Right to Return Despite occasional UN condemnation of the Israeli blockade on Palestinian civilians (which is illegal in international law, especially given that Israel is still the Occupying Power in Gaza), the world has turned a blind eye to this ongoing Israeli atrocity. That the world would remain silent about these criminal tactics is unimaginable.

How Trump Just Gave Alabama to Iraq by Giving Syrian Golan to Israel The Trump administration's illegal and unilateral recognition of Israeli annexation of the Syrian is an unfortunate return to the international jungle of the 1930s and 1940s, when Hitler annexed the Sudetenland and Mussolini annexed Nice from France.

We did Trump to Ourselves and Should Own up to It; Mueller and Putin can't Save US Trump probably did not hatch a plot with Putin. Trump may not be a systematic enough thinker actually to hatch a plot. He seems to have the attention span of a magpie. This is not to say that Putin did not try to put Trump in. He did. as George W. Bush said, fool me twice -- can't get fooled again. That is Bushpeak for "fool me twice, shame on me."

How Trump's Recognition of Israeli Usurpation of Syrian Golan Strengthens Iran, Russia in ME Trump's call for recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, a part of Syria, is intended to help his and his donors' ally Binyamin Netanyahu win the Israeli elections. It is another example of his uncanny ability to sabotage his own policies. Not to mention to sabotage any semblance of international legality.

How Bush's War on Iraq Produced Trumpism, Instability, Refugees and Climate Catastrophe George W. Bush as the second worst president in American history is burnished by the absolute worst. Trump is, notoriously, a pathological liar who has told thousands of whoppers. So far, at least, Bush's lies were more consequential. Trump lies about having been a good student or about being a billionaire. Bush lied the country into a war for oil.

Rupert Murdoch's Fox postpones Pirro, as his Sky Channel is Pulled from NZ Airwaves for airing Shooter's Video World-straddling press lord Rupert Murdoch's media is under pressure in the wake of the massacre of 50 worshipers by a white supremacist terrorist at a Christchurch mosque. Murdoch's Fox News is known for pushing white nationalist themes and for demonizing Muslims, and his Sky News Australia is not very different.

In Historic Rebuke to Trump, Senate invokes War Powers to Halt US aid to Saudi War on Yemen As Sanders implied, Wednesday's vote is historic in representing an attempt by the legislature to recover its historic and constitutional authority over war from an increasingly out of control presidency. The House of Representatives is thought likely to pass the resolution, as well.'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''

Millionaire "Justice": 5 Petty Shoplifting Charges sentenced more harshly than Manafort's Hiding Millions Paul Manafort, was given 47 months in prison for his crimes on Thursday, in a jaw-dropping ruling that treated him as a good family man without priors. He only didn't have priors because white collar criminals are so coddled in an American firmly under the thumb of the big business classes.

As News of Khashoggi "Kebab" at Saudi Consulate Emerges,GOP Senators Condemn Trump Admin Briefing as Substanceless An investigation by Aljazeera provided further grisly details of the murder and cover-up. Turkish forensics experts found Khashoggi's blood on the wall of the office of the Saudi consul at the Istanbul consulate. It is alleged that a Saudi medical examiner with a bone saw was among those flown in for the assassination and clean-up.

Netanyahu to be Indicted on Bribery, Fraud, Press Tampering: Israeli AG Some Israel watchers are convinced that the indictment will make no difference. Netanyahu's right wing coalition may well win the 61 seats in parliament needed for a majority, and his far right wing Likud Party will likely be the largest party in the coalition. Netanyahu may well be reelected prime minister despite the charges.

Top Six Pieces of Dirt Cohen Dished on Trump in his Opening Statement Trump really enjoyed screwing over his subcontractors by underpaying them or even stiffing them entirely. As I remember, Hillary Clinton said this during one of their debates. Trump replied that he didn't pay people who did poor work. Cohen's testimony suggests it was part greed and part sadism.

Not Trump's America: On How the Oscars looked Like the Real America this Year Trump's America is a thin, diminished slice of the country, the barracuda business classes of Queens in the 1940s before the Dominicans and other minorities came. His is the German and Scottish America of "white" grifters who put down African-Americans and immigrants because they had no other source of self-esteem but the denigration of others.
