Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) called Sunday “yet another disastrous Republican proposal to throw millions of people off health insurance.”

Jimmy Carter Speaks Out Against US ‘Oligarchy’ and Trump’s Diplomatic Failures

Former President Carter also offered a rebuttal to the approach to North Korea taken by not only President Donald Trump but by former President Barack Obama. Carter said that “the first thing I would do is treat the North Koreans with respect. I would be talking to them. We have refused to talk to them since George W. Bush was in office.

Immigrant Groups Mobilize To Combat Trump’s ‘Cruel’ and ‘Heartless’ Plan to End DACA

DACA allows undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as minors to apply for work permits and shields them from deportation. After Politico reported on Sunday evening that the president would announce a six-month delay before he terminates DACA protections for nearly 800,000 people, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was among many Trump critics who expressed outrage at the president’s plan.

14 Times Trump Warned Against Doing What He Just Did in Afghanistan

On the same day millions of Americans were thrilled to witness — and equally distracted by — a total solar eclipse, Donald Trump decided it was time to announce a “dramatically different” foreign policy plan for the U.S. military in Afghanistan. Just how “different” is Trump’s new plan? In reality, the ‘new’ plan is simply more of the same failed policy of the past, one Trump promised to put an end to numerous times over the years prior to moving into the White House.

Trump Kills Study on Health Impacts of Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining

Bill Price, senior Appalachia organizing representative for Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign, called it “infuriating that Trump would halt this study on the health effects of mountaintop removal coal mining, research that people in Appalachia have been demanding for years. Trump has once again shown the people of Appalachia that we mean nothing to him. From his proposed budget cuts to the Appalachian Regional Commission, to pushing to take away healthcare from thousands of Appalachian people, to now stripping doctors and scientists of the ability to warn us about the health effects of mountaintop coal removal, Trump’s showing that he’s only been pretending to care about our communities.”

Dear America: The World’s Not Quite as F*cked as the Mainstream Media Makes it Out to Be

No matter what you turn, it seems the world is burning and chaos reigns supreme. War, threats of war, racism, violence, hatred, and division populate the news cycle and leave us few options but to hang our heads in hopelessness, despair, and increasingly, rage. However, things are not as bad as the mainstream media makes it out to be. Here are both some recent and long-term developments to remind you there is still hope for the human race.

The Overlooked Trumpcare Threat: It’s a Medicare Time Bomb

The Overlooked Trumpcare Threat: It’s a Medicare Time Bomb

The broken promise on Medicare is in danger of slipping by beneath the radar. Only days after the election, Speaker Paul Ryan announced that he saw an opportunity to realize his decades-long dream of destroying Medicare. He said that he planned to enact legislation as soon as possible that would end Medicare’s guaranteed benefit and replace it with voucher coupons. Ryan justified this horrible plan — destined to leave the nation’s seniors without medical care after a lifetime of work — by claiming “because of Obamacare, Medicare is going broke.” Nothing could be further from the truth. The Affordable Care Act improved Medicare’s long-term finances, by requiring the wealthiest Americans to pay somewhat more. Trumpcare repeals that increased funding.

What You’re Not Being Told About the Paris Climate Agreement

To hear people talk, apparently, the human race can only progress into the future and create new industries and technologies if we are flogged into it begrudgingly by our ‘wise’ government and corporate leaders.

Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems

Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems

The truth is that the real problem lies in our hearts, and the corrupt politicians that currently represent us are simply a reflection of who we have become as a nation. The generations of people that founded this nation and established it as the greatest republic that the world had ever seen had far different values than most Americans do today. So until there is a dramatic shift in how most of us see the world, it is quite likely that not much in Washington will change.

Trump Administration Considering ‘Back-Door Way’ to Cut Social Security

The Social Security Works president says latest proposal is “a Trojan horse: It appears to be a gift, in the form of middle class tax relief, but would, if enacted, lead to the destruction of working Americans’ fundamental economic security.”

Does the Science of Lying Explain Trump’s Support?

“Trump tells more untruths than any previous president,” says George Edwards, a Texas A&M political scientist who edits the Presidential Studies Quarterly. “There is no one that is a close second.” But Trump’s political path presents a paradox. Far from slowing his momentum, his deceit seemed only to strengthen his support through the primary and national election. How can he tell so many lies and still win support from millions of Americans?
