Sanders Rips Bolton and Other Washington Hawks Who Push ‘War and Militarism’ as ‘Answer to Everything’

“This is a man who was a key adviser to President Bush, George W. Bush, in urging him to…invade Iraq because supposedly Iraq had weapons of mass destruction,” Sanders said of Bolton, who Trump selected to be his top foreign policy adviser in March. “As I think most Americans now know, that effort in Iraq was the worst foreign policy disaster in the modern history of this country.” (Plus, the death and devastation it caused in Iraq).

Because ‘Corporate Media Ignores Rise of Oligarchy,’ Sanders Says Rest of Us Must Fill the Void

“We need to ask the hard questions that the corporate media fails to ask: who owns America, and who has the political power? Why, in the richest country in the history of the world are so many Americans living in poverty? What are the forces that have caused the American middle class, once the envy of the world, to decline precipitously?” Sanders writes. “We need to hear from struggling Americans whose stories are rarely told in newspapers or television.”

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.”

All the while, conspiracy theories of every stripe and variety festoon the footnotes of history.

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.”

Bernie Sanders: Trump ‘Is a Fraud’ Sending Nation in ‘Authoritarian Direction’

“It is hard not to laugh,” Sanders said, “to see President Trump sitting alongside these Wall Street guys. This guy ran for the President of the United States saying, ‘I’m Donald Trump and I’m gonna take on Wall Street—these guys are getting away with murder…’ But suddenly he appoints all these billionaires; his major financial adviser comes from Goldman Sachs; and now he’s gonna dismantle legislation that protects consumers.”

Bernard Kerik: What’s More Dangerous — DNC Hack or Criminality It Exposed?

Bernard Kerik: What’s More Dangerous — DNC Hack or Criminality It Exposed?

As it stands right now, no one knows for sure who hacked into the DNC, or who gave those emails to WikiLeaks. No one knows for sure if it was Russia, or what its true intent was if Russia was the culprit. However, if during this next briefing, the FBI, CIA, or any other three-letter federal agency authenticates and validates the emails that were leaked by WikiLeaks that exposed all of this criminal conduct, I’m curious if these same members of Congress will do their job and refer the matter to the FBI for criminal investigation.

Fate of Vermont’s Historic GMO-Labeling Law in US Senate’s Hands (Who Are Voting on a Pathetic “Compromise” Bill)

“The Senate bill would allow manufacturers to post ‘call for more information’ phone numbers or even smart phone ‘QR codes’ if they so desire—meaning that if you have a phone with the right app installed, a steady hand and a solid data connection you’ll be able to access a website that will tell you what’s in the food you’re buying. That’s not a label—that’s a hassle.” – Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch.
