Why the Fed Hasn’t Been Audited Even Though Most Americans Want it to Happen – Ron Paul

Audit the Fed recently took a step closer to becoming law, when it was favorably reported by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Fed defenders did launch hysterical attacks on the bill during the debate as well as at a hearing on the bill. One representative claimed that auditing the Fed would result in rising interest rates, a stock market crash, a decline in the dollar’s value, and a complete loss of confidence in the US economy. Those who understand economics know that all of this is actually what awaits America unless we change our monetary policy.

Trump’s Pick to Head the FDA Is a Big Pharma Mega-Lobbyist

Perhaps the most frightening part of Gottlieb’s resume is his seeming allegiance to opioid companies. These groups are notoriously heavy-handed in their lobbying and lax in their commitment to customers. A set of newly released financial disclosures paints the Trump pick to head the FDA as a man who doesn’t mind filling his pockets with money drawn from opioids.

Here Are the 50 GOP Senators Who Just Sacrificed Your #BroadbandPrivacy to Corporate Profits

Privacy and consumer advocates—and a seemingly endless chorus of Internet users—were expressing outrage on Thursday after the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate passed a bill that will allow powerful media corporations to collect personal data of internet users without their consent and sell that information to the “highest bidder” for profit.

Secret Presidential Memorandum issued to Declassify Anti-aging & Free Energy Technologies

Whistleblower Goode was told about Trump issuing a Presidential Memorandum to declassify over 1000 patents, most of which deal with anti-aging and health technologies. Yet some deal with material science and biochemistry and a few involve free energy inventions. These technologies are widely used in a number of secret space programs, and the patents dealing with these have been repressed under national security orders.

Is Trump “Making America Great” at Americans’ Expense?

Trump, the self-touted “voice of the people,” has placed in the highest government positions the “voices” of Wall Street billionaires. Next door to his Oval Office is Gary Cohn, former Goldman Sachs boss. In addition, Wall Street and the mega-wealthy now run the Treasury Department, the State Department, and the Department of Education while corporatists and militarists run other major departments and agencies. Where are the people’s voices in that plutocratic park?

Trump’s War on the Truth Tellers

Last week, White House press secretary Sean Spicer warned that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office couldn’t be trusted to come up with accurate numbers about the costs and coverage of the Republicans’ replacement for the Affordable Care Act. Bear in mind the director of the CBO is a Republican economist who was chosen for his position by the Republican Congress in 2015. No matter. The White House is worried about what the CBO will say about Trumpcare, so it throws the CBO under the bus before the bus arrives.

The American Health Care Act Is a Wealth Grab, Not a Health Plan

The American Health Care Act Is a Wealth Grab, Not a Health Plan

The AHCA is not a “health” plan. It’s a wealth grab for the already wealthy and will increase wealth inequality. Its benefits will go, first and foremost, to billionaires who make more money from investments than from work. The 400 highest-earning households in the country will get an average tax break of $7 million per year under the Republican plan.

GOP Plan Targets Poor, Sick, Elderly While Providing Tax Cuts for Wealthy

The Affordable Healthcare Act (AHCA), unveiled by House Republicans Monday night, dismantles major provisions of the ACA, or Obamacare, and puts in place a system of age-based tax credits for individuals to buy insurance. It includes tax breaks for wealthy insurance CEOs; and is generally “a nastier, more consumer-unfriendly proposal than even close followers could have expected.” Under this bill, the average American will be more likely to be uninsured, or insured with higher co-pays and deductibles, or “covered” with a plan worth as much as the plastic insurance card it’s issued on.

Obama Awarded JFK Medal of Courage After 8 Years of Drone Bombings

Obama’s ended up being the first president in U.S. history to be at war for the entire duration of his presidency, averaging a whopping 72 bombs a day dropped on foreign countries, most of which were majority Muslim nations. “Every Tuesday — reported the New York Times — he personally selected those who would be murdered by mostly hellfire missiles fired from drones. Weddings, funerals, shepherds were attacked, along with those attempting to collect the body parts festooning the “terrorist target”. A leading Republican senator, Lindsey Graham, estimated, approvingly, that Obama’s drones killed 4,700 people. “Sometimes you hit innocent people and I hate that,” he said, but we’ve taken out some very senior members of Al Qaeda.”” ~John Pilger

Defenders of Social Security Mobilize Against GOP Attack on Retirees

“Voters will be looking to see if Trump breaks one of his top campaign promises by allowing Mulvaney to push his radical plan to cut Medicare and Social Security—and force millions of American seniors into poverty,” said Kait Sweeney, press secretary for the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. “Any senator—Republican or Democrat—who sides with Mulvaney and Trump’s radical agenda that benefits bankers and billionaires at the expense of working families should expect fierce opposition in 2018 from Trump’s own voters.”
