Fresh off of advocating for war with Iran, Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer is teaming up with Republican Rob Portman to give a massive handout to multinational corporations.1
Multinational corporations owe nearly $770 billion in taxes on nearly $2.2 trillion that they have been hiding offshore. Senators Schumer and Portman have a proposal to let companies bring back that money at a much lower tax rate – and then, going even further by lowering the tax rate on all future income earned overseas.2
The Deputy Sheriff was at a filling station pumping gas when this huge black guy sneaks up behind him and shoots him multiple times then stands over the body and shoots him some more as the deputy lay on the ground.
The police are blaming the inflamatory comments from the Black Lives Matters movement, or others who have condemned the police for doing their duty against criminals, for this Racist Hate Crime! The police are calling this shooting an assassination. I'd call it an act of terrorism!!!
They have the black guy's photo from the gas station surveillance video posted online.

If you haven't heard the Thursday August 27th broadcast of ' Democracy Now ' you need too.

In the broadcast ,the Reagan government is continually named as knowingly aiding and abetting the slaughter of over a quarter of a million people, Reagan is named by the ex President of Guatemala himself, the ex President convicted by the Gautemalan people of mass murder and sentenced to 80 years in jail.

And yet, amidst all this destruction, Nestlé is still angling to bottle Oregon's fresh water and sell it for profit. Unbelievable.
