‘Morally Bankrupt’: After Tax Cuts for Richest, House GOP Unveils $5.4 Trillion Attack on Nation’s Safety Net

With the nation’s attention rightly fixated on President Donald Trump’s horrific treatment of immigrant children, House Republicans on Tuesday quietly unveiled their 2019 budget proposal that calls for $537 billion in cuts to Medicare, $1.5 trillion in cuts to Medicaid, and four billion in cuts to Social Security over the next decade in an effort to pay for their deficit-exploding tax cuts for the wealthy.

New Video and Audio Captures ‘Horrifying’ Reality of Children Taken From Parents as GOP Pressed to ‘Find Their Conscience’

As newly published images, videos, and audio provided brief and “horrifying” glimpses inside America’s child detention facilities in the midst of President Donald Trump’s massive attack on immigrant families, all 49 members of the Senate Democratic Caucus on Monday united behind a bill that would end the White House’s family separation policy immediately—putting pressure on Republicans who claim to oppose the cruel practice to act on their words.

“The images and stories coming from the detention centers near the border are both heartbreaking and infuriating,” CREDO campaign manager Nicole Regalado said in a statement on Monday. “Republicans in Congress have the power to put a stop to Trump’s cruel family separation policy today. Democrats have coalesced around legislation that would immediately halt this barbaric practice. All we need now is for a handful of Republicans to find their conscience and stand up to the Trump regime.”

UN Report on US: 40 Million Live In Poverty, 18.5 Million In Extreme Poverty & Government Is Deliberately Making Things Worse

UN Report on US: 40 million live in poverty, 18.5 million in extreme poverty and 5.3 million live in Third World conditions of absolute poverty. The report is a terrible indictment of the U.S. and of the Trump Administration. Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel prize winning economist told The Guardian “This administration inherited a bad situation with inequality in the U.S. and is now fanning the flames and worsening the situation. What is so disturbing is that Trump, rather than taking measures to ameliorate the problem, is taking measures to aggravate it.”

‘What Do You Call a Country That Institutionalizes Child Abuse?’: Democrats Hold Sit-In Demanding End to Trump Family Separation Policy

As the heart-wrenching story of a Honduran mother having her baby daughter ripped from her arms by federal authorities as she was breastfeeding provided yet another example of the immense cruelty of President Donald Trump’s family separation policy, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) on Wednesday led a sit-in outside the offices of Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) demanding that asylum-seekers be released from government detention and reunited with their loved ones immediately.

Paulette Jordan May Become the First Native American Governor In US History: Here’s Her Story

Paulette Jordan is hoping to achieve an extraordinary electoral feat in a deeply conservative state that would make her a string of firsts: She would be the first Native American governor in the history of the US, the first woman governor of Idaho, and the first Democrat to be elected to lead the state in a generation. But for all of those potential distinctions should she be elected come November, Ms Jordan doesn’t seem to be all that interested in them. They’re nice, sure, but she says she has her sights set on bigger fish — like reaching out to voters across the Gem State with her message, and gaining their trust at a time of urgency for progressive causes nationwide.

Elizabeth Warren: Democrats Will Keep Losing Until the Entire Party Is ‘Willing to Take on the Billionaire Class’

In a recent interview, Elizabeth Warren said she agrees with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) that too many Democrats lack the “guts” to take on Wall Street and argued that her party will keep suffering electoral losses until all of its members are “willing to take on the billionaire class… Until we have all of the Democrats who are willing to fight for the American people and not for a handful of billionaires and giant corporations, then it’s going to stay an uphill fight.”

California Turning Off the Water: Residents Must Wash Clothes & Shower on Alternating Days

California Turning Off the Water: Residents Must Wash Clothes & Shower on Alternating Days

The California water shortage is greatly exaggerated for political purposes, which is the justification for more government control.  It is a jarring fact that only 11% of available water is allocated for urban use, 41% goes to agriculture, and 48% is allocated to protect the environment. The federal government has control over that portion and requires most of it to flow into the Pacific Ocean! As we have seen in California’s Central Valley, which used to be the breadbasket of America, supplying over 50% of the nation’s vegetables, fruits and nuts, government control over water has become control over the food supply. No water, no food.

The Former Busboy Who Held a Dying Robert F. Kennedy Reflects on the Senator’s Final Moments

Juan Romero continues to struggle with what happened that day 50 years ago, which saw him go from desperately hoping RFK would shake his hand to cradling the mortally-injured politician’s head on the floor of the hotel’s kitchen. “I remember extending my hand as far as I could, and then I remember him shaking my hand,” the California man, who worked at the hotel at the time, told StoryCorps which aired on NPR’s Morning Edition. “And as he let go, somebody shot him.”

As Deadline Fast Approaches, House Members Warned to Defend Net Neutrality or “Face Internet’s Wrath”

With less than a week before the FCC’s “resoundingly unpopular” repeal of net neutrality rules go into effect on June 11th, defenders of the open internet and online consumers are warning members of the U.S. House of Representatives to either immediately back a resolution petition that would nullify the rules or “face the internet’s wrath.” According to Candace Clement, campaign director for the Free Press Action, “This will be one of the biggest showdowns of the summer in the House. For constituents everywhere Net Neutrality is non-negotiable. Our elected representatives can either side with the people and support the CRA or with the cable and phone lobby.” As part of their campaign, the coalition has organized a day of actions for TODAY (Thursday, June 7), so that citizens nationwide can visit or contact their House member in order to demand support for the CRA.

‘Very, Very Disturbing’: Trump Asserts ‘Absolute Right’ to Pardon Himself

Echoing the tyrannical claim of his lawyer Rudy Giuliani in a Twitter outburst on Monday, President Donald Trump asserted that he has the “absolute right” to pardon himself—a statement legal experts said is both factually inaccurate and dangerous. Responding to the president’s tweet, former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote, “You don’t need to be a lawyer to understand why courts would never uphold a president’s power to commit crimes and then pardon himself for them.”
