I'm referring to Congress collectively. There are some good legislators who are honest and knowledgeable but they are nowhere near as assertive and networked as they need to be given the super serious urgencies of our country and the tormented world around it.

As the size and severity of the corporate crime wave surges, Congress is asleep at the switch. The mostly captive Capitol Hill Gang has sat on an antiquated federal criminal code, starved the budget of regulatory health, safety, and consumer/labor protection agencies, and let corporate crooks routinely get away with their crimes.

It's your Congress People! Reclaim it from the corporatists. It's in your hands. Lives, healthcare, livelihoods, your descendants and the planet will be so much better off if you spend a fraction of the time you spend on your hobbies holding your two senators and representatives accountable to the people first.

The Fed entrenches the power of the banks without accountability inside Washington. Trump has been pounding the Fed and threatening to take away Chairman Powell's Chair for months. He is demanding sharp reductions in interest rates.
Presidents almost never do this publicly to the Fed.
SHARE Wednesday, March 27, 2019 Look How the Real Trump is Endangering America
Special Counsel Robert Mueller spent almost two years to produce a $25 million report that is a flat tire. Still unreleased in full to the American people.
What a farce and distraction this whole exercise turned out to be! Mueller's assigned subject was Trump. So, does this prosecutor demand to interview Trump, to subpoena Trump? No. Does this special investigator conclude with any legal recommendations at all? No.

If you do all the above, the Republicans will continue to enjoy their control of the federal branches of our captured government and many state legislatures. It is time for Democrats to stop singing from the corporate state's songbook, and really stand "with liberty and justice for all."

The USA is still bogged down in Afghanistan (the 16 year-old occupation is the longest in American history) and in Iraq (since the unconstitutional, illegal invasion of the country 14 years ago).
