Poverty in the U.S. Is Both a Political and a Moral Choice Made By the Powerful

International law affirms that everyone has the right to an adequate standard of living, including health care, food, work, and social protection in times of need. While these rights are often trampled upon by more repressive regimes, among the economically developed democracies the U.S. is virtually alone in callously disregarding them.

Due to cutbacks in basic services, poverty has become a trap—a trap into which anyone can fall, and from which it is extremely hard to escape.

The Tax Bill Is the Grinchiest Christmas Gift Yet

A smash-and-grab mob is running the government. If they continue the way they are, every agency, every social program, every benefit and every one of us not-rich-people will take it in the wallet as they rapaciously loot the system.

Donald J. Trump: The ‘Least Popular First-Year President on Record’

With more than two-thirds of all Americans now disapproving of the job performance of President Donald Trump, a new poll out Saturday shows that he is now the most unpopular U.S. president during his first year in office since surveys of this kind have been taken. The poll shows that a majority of Americans now hold “a broadly pessimistic view of Trump’s presidency, the nation’s politics and the overall direction of the country.”

Facts That Our War-Happy Leaders Would Like To Keep Hushed Up

Simple-minded but deadly thinking by our war-happy leaders derives from influential groups and individuals who think we have to KILL to keep the rest of the world in line. The compliant mainstream media scares us into accepting wars and drone killings overseas, military-style defenses on our own streets, surveillance of our private lives.

Double Standards? Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty, But Obama’s Men Were Not Held to the Same Standard

Double Standards? Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty, But Obama’s Men Were Not Held to the Same Standard

Michael Flynn has pled guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversation with the Russian Ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak. The conversation occurred AFTER Trump won the 2016 election and before he was inaugurated. The conversation involved US sanctions against Russia and a UN resolution concerning Israel.
Why did Flynn lie? There was nothing wrong with him speaking to the Ambassador during the presidential transition phase. Claims that he was undermining Obama’s policy toward Russia are nonsense. It’s common practice for an incoming president’s staff to speak with foreign officials, in order to set up future goals and policies.
