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.

The Government Is Still the Enemy of Freedom

The Government Is Still the Enemy of Freedom

All that we own, all that we earn, all that we say and do—our very lives—depends on the benevolence of government agents and corporate shareholders for whom profit and power will always trump principle. And now the government is litigating and legislating its way into a new framework where the dictates of petty bureaucrats carry greater weight than the inalienable rights of the citizenry. We are coming to a crossroads. Either we gather together now and attempt to restore freedom or all will be lost. As King cautioned, “everywhere, ‘time is winding up,’ in the words of one of our spirituals, corruption in the land, people take your stand; time is winding up.”

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.

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

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
