House GOP Passes Budget That ‘Should Not Be Allowed in a Humane Society’

By a vote of 219 to 206, the House on Friday approved a GOP-crafted budget resolution that proposes more than five trillion dollars in cuts to key safety net programs like Medicare and Medicaid to pave the way for massive tax cuts for the wealthy and massive corporations. Frank Clemente, executive director of Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF), denounced the GOP budget resolution in a statement following Thursday’s vote, arguing it is “the first step toward an immoral tax scheme that will hand trillions of dollars to millionaires and corporations at the expense of America’s working families, many of whom will actually see a tax increase.”

‘Genocidal’ Trump Blasted for Threatening to ‘Totally Destroy North Korea’

President Donald Trump was lampooned by critics as he delivered his first ever speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City on Tuesday morning, as he threatened to “totally destroy North Korea.” For many critics, Trump’s war-mongering is enormously counter-productive in terms of reducing global threats and geopolitical tensions.

RFID Chips and Some Reasons Why We Should Be Worried About Them

RFID Chips and Some Reasons Why We Should Be Worried About Them

This is unknown technology and we are not privy to testing that is done for them. Is there a government agency(ies) that tests these things, or not. Even if there is, and judging by how all of the reasons whistleblowers have shown us that we should meet the government’s representations with precaution, if not actual skepticism, can we trust that we can trust the results of such testing. Remember also that there is a so-called Black Budget in the government. Is it possible this technology falls under that and, if so, what assurance do we have that this will not be used for ill purpose.

A Video That Reveals The Complete Charade That Is Politics

A Video That Reveals The Complete Charade That Is Politics

By now we must know, even if we might not like to admit it, that if anything could be changed through our current political establishment, it would have already, otherwise voting itself would likely be made illegal. Why? Because there is an established group out there that works and acts above government and makes the important choices in our world. Often called the Deep State, the Cabal, or the Illuminati, it’s out there, and the time of denying this basic fact has come to an end.
I felt inspired to shared this video because I believe we are in a time of great reflection in our world. Are we in a revolution? No. An evolution, perhaps, but this will not be something where we overthrow one system and replace it with another.

Is the Media Using the Charlottesville Riots to Incite Civil War?

Is the Media Using the Charlottesville Riots to Incite Civil War?

We have seen the mainstream media characterize various stories about riots and Black-White police interactions in a very polarizing fashion. Because of these stories, it seems that many people believe that 1/2 of the country are virulent racists and the other half are not.

What can we learn about this story, and how can we move forward to racial healing instead of race war?

‘Total Garbage’: Senate GOP’s New Trumpcare Bill Even Worse Than Original

The newly released plan leaves massive and widely condemned Medicaid cuts intact while adding a new amendment—put forth by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas)—that would allow insurers to offer cheap “bare-bones” plans which would wipe out a range of protections for all patients and specifically harm those with preexisting conditions. “The new Trumpcare bill is awful by design. The tool we have to fight it is simple: public pressure on senators.” —Ezra Levin, Indivisible

Bernie Sanders Denounces Trumpcare as ‘The Most Anti-Working Class Legislation Ever’

Sanders said that “we’re in a pivotal moment of American history… The trend toward having a handful of billionaire families with unlimited resources controlling our political process will only get worse. The trend toward a handful of conglomerates owning and controlling our economy will only get worse. And what our job is, is to create a vibrant democracy where one person, one vote is what dominates the political system, not billionaires buying the election.”
