The U.S. economy is picking up steam but most Americans aren’t feeling it. Does the responsibility fall on corporations to solve this problem?
Shared agendas may forge new alliances between liberals and conservatives against crony corporatism.
“The [truth-finding] software works by tapping into the Knowledge Vault, the vast store of facts that Google has pulled off the internet. Facts the web unanimously agrees on are considered a reasonable proxy for truth. Web pages that contain contradictory information are bumped down the rankings.” […] The new Google program is going to double down. It’s going to set up its own Ministry of Truth. It’s going to standardize algorithms that unerringly bring about officially favored lies.
A WhiteHouse.gov petition calling for the prohibition of laws requiring mandatory vaccines has been throttled by the White House, buried from public view and finally frozen for over 36 hours to prevent the petition from achieving 100,000 signatures, Natural News can now reveal.
Charter schools have been heralded as the antidote to “failed” public schools, especially in poor urban communities of African-American and Latino/a students. However, as Salon, AlterNet, and other independent media outlets have reported, charter schools have come under fire for not fulfilling the roles or achieving the results that their proponents have claimed. Instead of providing positive teaching and preparing children for the future, recent news reports have indicated that charter schools are subjecting students to padded cells, public shaming and embarrassment, poor instruction, and the negative consequences of financial corruption.
A new poll shows that more than half of Americans — including 80 percent of Democrats and a quarter of Republicans — support expanding health reform to “Medicare for All.” While Obamacare has been a step in the right direction, more and more people across the country understand that a single-payer healthcare system is the only way to guarantee quality care and at the same time reduce medical costs.

Robert Reich gives one of the best descriptions of the nature & dangers of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in a less than 3 minute video. The effort to have this secretive, nontransparent proposal put on a “fast track”, smacks of Tammany Hall-style politics that benefits no one but fat cats. And, after years of the public hoping for bipartisanship in Congress, isn’t it ironic that this is the issue where Republicans are supporting the president in large & growing numbers?
The senators highlight three parts of the TPP that could undermine current and future efforts to regulate Wall Street and prevent another financial crisis: (1) Investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS), which allows foreign companies or investors to sue governments for losses in expected profits; (2) “Market access” provisions that could prohibit restrictions on predatory financial products, like risky forms of derivatives; and (3) Limitations on governments’ ability to impose capital controls, which could stymie efforts to prevent future financial crises as well as efforts to pass a financial transaction tax.
Human experimentation was a core feature of the CIA’s torture program. The experimental nature of the interrogation and detention techniques is clearly evident in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s executive summary of its investigative report, despite redactions (insisted upon by the CIA) to obfuscate the locations of these laboratories of cruel science and the identities of perpetrators…because the concept of torture has been so muddled and disputed, [the author] suggest(s) that accountability would be more publicly palatable if we reframed the CIA’s program as one of human experimentation.
