Donald Trump’s Immigrant Grandfather Once Begged Not to be Deported

In 1905, Friedrich Trump pleaded to remain in the country he felt was his home: “Why should we be deported? This is very, very hard for a family. What will our fellow citizens think if honest subjects are faced with such a decree — not to mention the great material losses it would incur. I would like to become a Bavarian citizen again.”

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.

How A Real War On Terrorism Would Look And Why The US Isn’t Fighting One

Since 2001, when then US President George Bush announced his “War on Terror,” presidents and politicians both in the United States and among America’s allies, have repeated this phrase and have done their utmost to convince the public that indeed, the West was fighting a “War on Terror.” Yet there is something disturbingly ambiguous about what exactly the “War on Terror” consists of, who it’s being waged against and how it could ever possibly be brought to a successful conclusion.

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.”

Ron Paul: Trump’s Wall Won’t Fix Illegal Immigration, Ending The Drug War Will

Instead of the financial drain of building a wall, federal government should end the drug war – which obviously does not reduce demand or supply – and allow the economy to thrive from a free market. Colorado is demonstrating how legalizing cannabis can bring a massive economic boost. The legal market also brings reputable providers to the table who deliver safe, quality products. And, contrary to drug war propagandists, teen cannabis use is actually declining.

Congresswoman Who Says U.S. Funds ISIS Just Got Back from Syria: Here’s What She Found

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard: “My visit to Syria has made it abundantly clear: Our counterproductive regime change war does not serve America’s interest, and it certainly isn’t in the interest of the Syrian people. As I visited with people from across the country, and heard heartbreaking stories of how this war has devastated their lives, I was asked, ‘Why is the United States and its allies helping al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups try to take over Syria? Syria did not attack the United States. Al-Qaeda did.’ I had no answer.”
