Nuclear Waste is the Achille's Heel...

You need to know this. As the death toll soars from last Friday’s 9.0 earthquake and tsunami – 50 Japanese nuclear plant workers are putting their lives on the line to prevent another catastrophe in Japan – nuclear meltdown. All 6 GE Mark I reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant are dangerously close to melting down – but that’s not even the worst of it. Sitting on top of each reactors are pools of nuclear waste that contain larger

Hour One: "Rally On!" Other states follow Wisconsin's lead! John Nichols, The Nation Magazine

Will we have a tone-deaf response to the nuclear catastrophe in Japan?

Officials in Japan are desperately working to prevent a meltdown at their Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in the city of Sendai – a city that was wiped off the map as a result of Friday’s 9.0 earthquake and tsunami. The New York Times is reporting that there have been setbacks today in trying to cool the reactors – and the situation is “veering toward catastrophe.” According to the International Nuclear, Radiological Event Scale that measure

Hour One: Will a recall in Wisconsin work? John Nichols, The Nation Magazine

Hooper’s wife gladly signed the recall petition against her husband

As many as 100,000 - 150,000 people showed up outside the state capital in Madison, Wisconsin to protest Koch Brothers lapdog Scott Walker’s antics last week in illegally passing legislation that strips public workers of their rights. The crowd – far bigger than any Tea Party rally ever – vowed not to give up their efforts despite many who are now calling this political battle over. In an office building near the capital – volunteers are ra

It's a FAKE threat while there is a REAL threat to America...

Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee Peter King’s hearing into American Muslim communities was a circus yesterday – with some of the most sensational and baseless accusations being hurled at Muslims. Republicans on the Committee and Muslim-haters who were called to testify tried to say that the hearings were no different than the numerous investigations into Nazi war crimes…huh?!

Hour One: "Brunch With Bernie" - Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) takes your calls

18 State Senators undid fifty years of civil rights in Wisconsin

Late last night – Governor Scott Walker and Republicans in Wisconsin proved to the world what we all suspected - that their union-stripping agenda has absolutely NOTHING to do with the budget. With Democrats still AWOL and public opinion turning against him – Walker used the nuclear option. Senate Republicans convened a special session last night – and stripped the budget bill of all the stuff related to an actual budget so that they

Have Republicans made a Faustian bargain with the rich and don't know how to get out of it?

Who’s screwed? America's children. There are 16 million children living in poverty right now – and if trends continue – a quarter of all the kids in our nation will be living poverty. There haven’t been numbers this troubling since the Great Depression. And what do Republicans want to do??

The GOP war on workers has killed again...

It’s time to stop the conservative's war on working people in America.

Since the birth of our nation, conservatives have always been wary of average working-class Americans having too much political or economic power.
