 The Campaign To Arrest Supreme Court Protesters

Republican lawmakers, conservative operatives, and Beltway editorialists want the Biden administration to arrest people who have been peacefully protesting outside Supreme Court justices’ homes as the court gets ready to overturn Roe v. Wade and invalidate federal abortion protections for tens of millions of Americans. The justification? A McCarthy-era law designed to crack down on alleged communists.

 The Judicial Puppet Master Behind The Roe Disaster

With the Supreme Court preparing to abolish people’s constitutional right to an abortion by striking down Roe vs. Wade, our new video exposes one of the individuals most responsible: Leonard Leo, the anti-abortion zealot and Trump judicial adviser who has spent years moving the court towards this decision using tens of millions in dark, untraceable money.

How did Leo pull it off? Watch our new video to find out — and then share it on social media and forward this email to friends and family. Also, to keep in the loop on our newest videos, please click here to subscribe to our free YouTube channel.

 Defense Contractors’ Secret Ties To Ukraine Pundits

To make sense of the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, corporate media has made a habit of turning to former defense officials. These hawkish talking heads have tended to push for bolder U.S. military action against Russia — with little acknowledgement of how these moves could escalate tensions between the two nuclear-armed superpowers.

As our new video demonstrates, these pundits are also neglecting to mention something else: Many of them are getting paid by defense contractors that stand to profit from increased or prolonged conflict in the region, the threat of World War III be damned.

Who are the biggest talking heads failing to disclose their defense industry ties? Watch our new video to find out — and then share it on social media and forward this email to friends and family.

“Our Techno-Feudal Hellscape” – On the Real News Network, with Jason Myles & Pascal Robert

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 02/05/2022 - 3:39pm in

From the push to turn more of the workforce into precarious “gig workers” to the ways profit-seeking digital platforms condition how we act and think while extracting free data from us, we can see and feel everyday the creeping evidence that we are living in a new reality. As world-renowned Greek economist, author, and politician Yanis Varoufakis argues, “This is how capitalism ends: not with a revolutionary bang, but with an evolutionary whimper. Just as it displaced feudalism gradually, surreptitiously, until one day the bulk of human relations were market-based and feudalism was swept away, so capitalism today is being toppled by a new economic mode: techno-feudalism.”
In their latest interview for TRNN, co-hosts of THIS IS REVOLUTION Jason Myles and Pascal Robert speak with Varoufakis about how this “techno-feudalist” system emerged, what sets it apart from the global capitalist system that preceded it, and what it will mean for humanity if we don’t stop it. Yanis Varoufakis formerly served as the finance minister of Greece and is currently the secretary general of MeRA25, a left-wing political party in Greece that he founded in 2018. He is a professor of economics at the University of Athens and the author of numerous books, including The Global Minotaur: America, Europe and the Future of the Global Economy and Another Now: Dispatches from an Alternative Present.

The Real Reason Congress Gets Nothing DoneWhy doesn’t Congress...

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 28/04/2022 - 2:47pm in

The Real Reason Congress Gets Nothing Done

Why doesn’t Congress get anything done? Well, one chamber actually does. Hundreds of bills have been passed by the House of Representatives, but have been blocked from even getting a vote in the Senate. Bills like –

The Freedom to Vote Act,

The John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,

The Equality Act,

Background checks for gun sales,

Reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act,

The Protecting the Right to Organize Act.

The Build Back Better Act.

The list goes on…

So why aren’t these crucial bills getting a vote in the Senate? Because the filibuster makes it impossible.

******

Btw, if you’d like my daily analyses, commentary, and drawings, please subscribe to my free newsletter: robertreich.substack.com

******

All told, the House passed over 200 bills since the start of 2021 that have not been taken up in the Senate. Everything from investing in rural education to preventing discrimination against pregnant workers to protecting seniors from scams – bills that have real, tangible benefits for the public; bills that have widespread public support.

So don’t believe the media narrative that Congress is trapped in hopeless gridlock and

both sides

are to blame. One chamber of Congress, led by Democrats, is passing important legislation and delivering for the people. But Republicans in the Senate, and a handful of corporate Democrats, are hell-bent on grinding the gears of government to a halt.Why are Senate Republicans doing this? Because their midterm strategy depends on it. Republicans are blocking crucial legislation so they can point to Democrats’ supposed inability to get anything done, and claim they’ll be able to deliver if you give them majorities. Don’t fall for it.

Climate change is already here, and we are on a path towards catastrophic global warming. Governments have failed to curb carbon emissions, and fossil fuel production continues to increase. This is not merely a political failure; it is also a failure of economic analysis.
