Why Trump Needs To Hang Out w/Justin Trudeau More

Vien Truong, Green for All/Dream Corps & Bryan Pruitt, RedState. It's time for Donald Trump to start hanging out more with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - and no, not just because he needs some hair-styling tips. Everybody knew healthcare was complicated, which is why they warned Trump not to repeal Obamacare. But it doesn't have to be this way. There actually is a way to streamline this whole process - and make the American healthcare as simple as pie. It’s called single-payer healthcare - and all Trump would need to do to make it a reality here in the US as it is in developed nations like Canada - would be take that Medicare program he likes so much and drop its eligibility age down to zero. So what's he waiting for?

Will The Corporate Media Stand Against Trumps Attacks?

Richard Eskow, The Zero Hour/Campaign for America's Future. Until today, the anti-media rhetoric coming out of the Trump administration has been just that - rhetoric. But this afternoon - it turned into action. Earlier this afternoon - White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer blocked reporters from a number of news outlets from attending a briefing at his office. As the New York Times reports, "Reporters from The Times, BuzzFeed News, CNN, The Los Angeles Times and Politico were not allowed to enter the West Wing office of the press secretary, Sean M. Spicer... Aides to Mr. Spicer only allowed in reporters from a handpicked group of news organizations." It's not that difficult to see what's going on here. This was revenge - pure and simple. All of the news outlets blocked from attending today's briefing have been accused by Donald Trump and his administration of putting out "fake news" - AKA any news that calls into question the administration's extreme right-wing agenda. So - are we watching a crackdown on the press - American-style?

Has Big Oil Staged A Coup Of Our Government?

Farron Cousins, Ring of Fire Radio/DeSmog Blog/Trial Lawyer Magazine. When Scott Pruitt gave his first official speech as EPA administrator earlier this week - he didn't even mention global warming once. Apparently - the fate of the planet isn't something the nation's top environmental regulator thinks he should be worrying about. Instead, he's spent a good portion of his career SUING the agency he's now leading - and to put it bluntly - is a basically glorified lackey for the fossil fuel industry. That has now been made abundantly clear thanks to the Center for Media Democracy - which this week secured the release of around 7,500 previously withheld emails from Scott Pruitt's time as Oklahoma Attorney General.
