    The oligarchs are meeting this weekend to plot how they’re going to buy the elections this year.  First, Mitt Romney will be hosting a three-day retreat in Utah over the weekend with about 600 hundreds of his biggest fundraisers.  Romney is coming off a good fundraising month in May where his camp outraised the Obama camp $78 million to $60 million.  But the real plans to buy the election are being made in California –

  • Big Oil is buying the United States House of Representatives

    On Thursday – House Republicans, with a few Democrats, passed the Domestic Energy Production Act to increase oil drilling, scrap environmental regulations, and mandate drilling on public lands.  The vote tally was 248 to 163.  And according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics – Big Oil paid a lot of money for all those yes votes.

  • Kick the Oil Barons out of our Government!

    A new report by the Department of Energy claims the United States has enough existing renewable energy to supply 80% of the nation’s electricity use by 2050.  This is the largest study to date regarding our nation’s renewable energy capacity.  But it’s reminiscent of a 1978 White House report during the Carter Administration that suggested the United States could become a “solar society” by the year 2020.  Unfortunatel

  • JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon's kabuki theater was back on Capitol Hill Tuesday

    JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon starred in another dog and pony show on Capitol Hill Tuesday – this time appearing before the House Financial Services Committee.
