DNC...will Anyone Mention War?

Despite a lack of coverage on the mainstream media - the war in Afghanistan is still volatile - and far from over - as people continue to die every day. Can the US Government find a clean exit strategy for Afghanistan - or are we in store for more violence in the years to come?

How Many Times Will We Hear The Medicare Lie from the GOP?

Brian Darling. Heritage Foundation, joins Thom Hartmann. Paul Ryan told a lot of lies in his speech at the RNC last week - but his lies about Medicare were the most blatantly false. Are Americans really prepared to let Romney and Ryan lie their way right into the White House?

Is America better off than 30 yrs ago when the Reaganomics experiment started?

The Democratic National Convention kicks off this week in Charlotte, North Carolina. And already, we're seeing pretty stark differences between this week's DNC and last week's RNC. One week after Republicans unveiled the most radical major party platform in American modern history - Democrats have put forward their own political platform. Some of the planks include: a full embrace of marriage equality and a woman's right to choose, comprehensive immigration reform, the right for unions to collectively bargain, support for Obamacare, protection of Medicare as we know it, increased funding for the arts, and cutting off tax breaks or job outsourcers like Bain Capital. You might remember the Republican platform included things like a ban on pornography - a ban on marriage equality - and a ban on gays openly serving in the military. While there are too few differences between Republican and Democrats when it comes to the big issues facing the nation like war, free trade, and the corporate takeover of our democracy, there are still huge differences between the two parties as reflected in each platform. Differences that will affect millions of Americans. While Democrats want to keep moving the nation forward - extending civil rights and economic opportunity to more and more Americans - Republicans want to drag us all backward to the era of the Robber Barons.

Greenspan's Body Count

The story of Mitt Romney is a story of two Americans - one that got bailed out and can aspire to the highest levels of power - and the other that got sold out and forced into bankruptcy, desperation, and suicide. Since he can't talk about his job as Governor of Massachusetts passing his own version of Obamacare - Mitt Romney has to talk about his private sector experience at Bain Capital. In fact - he devoted a portion of his speech at the RNC to Bain: But what Romney is leaving out - is a tumultuous time in the last 1980's and early 1990's when Romney's company nearly went bankrupt - and in fact would have - had it not been bailed out by the government. In other words, he didn't built it. As Tim Dickinson at Rolling Stone uncovered - Bain Capital's parent company - Bain and Company - ran into serious financial problems in the late 1980's - and Mitt Romney was tapped to try to save the company. The company owed more than $30 million bucks to a bank that had been taken over by the FDIC. After failing again and again to get the company back on track - Romney decided to play hardball with Bain's creditors - basically forcing them to write down Bain's debt. Romney gave everyone a take it or leave it deal: take 30-cents on every dollar Bain owes - or else he will loot the company, divert whatever remaining assets there were toward paying executive big bonuses - declare bankruptcy - and then Bain's creditors - including the FDIC - would get nothing. The hardball worked - the ...

How the GOP Can Accomplish 98% of their Corporatist Agenda

Let's assume right now that all the Republican lies work. And let's assume that the billions of dollars spent by the likes of the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, and Karl Rove work. And let's assume that the statewide voter ID suppression laws, and restrictions on early voting, and hurdles to voter registration all work. Assuming all those things work - then come January 2013, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will be in the White House. And Speaker of the House John Boehner will be presiding over a Republican majority in the House of Representatives. And Mitch McConnell will be leading a Republican majority in the Senate. We'll have one-party Republican rule in America again. And unlike when Democrats held majorities in Congress and the White House for the first two years of President Obama's presidency - Republicans will see to it that their agenda under Mitt Romney is not derailed by the Democratic minority - like President Obama's was by the Republican minority's filibuster. Republicans are already planning how they can silence the voice of the minority should they sweep the elections in November - and this plan was laid out this week in the pages of the Financial Times. And guess who's spilling the beans - none other than one of the most powerful voices in the Republican Party - multi-millionaire K street lobbyist - Grover Norquist.

The Good, The Bad, and the very, very Rebarbatively ugly...

The Good! Code Pink. Today all the pundits are talking about the rousing foreign policy speech Condoleeza Rice gave at the RNC Wednesday night - in which she called for endless war in the Middle East. But no one is talking about her associations with known war criminals in the Bush Administration who dragged our nation into two illegal wars and who threw American values out the window when they decided to use torture. Well, Code Pink is talking about it. Protestors stormed the RNC on Wednesday, staging a die in on the sidewalk to signify all the bloodshed from Bush and Condi's war of aggression - and they also called for the arrest of Condoleeza Rice under war crimes charges. The Bad! Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted. Husted is working tirelessly in Ohio to cut short the number of hours voters in his state can cast their vote during early voting. In other words, he's doing his part to rig the election for Mitt Romney since a large chunk of early voters in Ohio are minority voters who tend to vote for Democrats. And the very, very ugly... Gina Rinehart - the richest woman in the world. Rinehart, who was born into a wealthy Australian family of mining tycoons worth roughly $30 billion, wrote a column in an industry magazine blasting the poor who are "jealous" of her. In the column, Rinehard writes: "If you're jealous of those with more money, don't just sit there and complain. Do something to make more money yourself - spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising ...
