Mitch Has Got to Go

•July 18, 2014 • 3 Comments

Mitch McConnell is on the ropes and has dropped in the polls against challenger, Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky. I called him as “toast” last year and I hold to that. He is done, imo. But as always, it’s up to We, The People to show up!

Mrs. Grimes out-raised the corporate-owned McConnell this past Wednesday by a million dollars and if Mitch stays true to form (and we know he will), he’ll help to do himself in come election day

Vote!

Ted Cruz Launches Senate Fight to Auction Off America’s Public Lands

•July 11, 2014 • 2 Comments

Today’s Republican Party won’t rest until we’re living in a Mad Max world. In spite of their best efforts, I feel they’re fighting a losing battle. But we have to be committed in order to stop them and show up at the polls come November.

dystopia

After a busy few months trying to impeach Attorney General Eric Holder, increase carbon pollution, and wipe out limits on campaign contributions, Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is now working to sell off America’s national forests, parks, and other public lands.

On Tuesday, Cruz filed an amendment to the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2014 (S. 2363) to force the federal government to sell off a significant portion of the country’s most prized lands in the West. The amendment would prohibit the federal government from owning more than 50 percent of any land within one state, and requires the government to transfer the excess land to the states or sell it to the highest bidder.

The Week

Even if Republicans seize the Senate

Everyone assumes that Republicans will easily hold the House in November. The dominant storyline among the chattering classes centers instead on the possibility that Republicans could seize control of the Senate from Democrats. But the rapidly escalating immigration face-off between President Barack Obama and House Republicans raises the possibility that Democrats could win back the House — even if Republicans do take the Senate

How is that possible? It’s simple: There are more competitive House races than Senate races in areas with significant Latino populations.

Last year, David Damore, a polling analyst for the firm Latino Decisions, found that there are 44 congressional districts with Republican incumbents that could be ousted if their Latino constituents flex their electoral muscle. “This includes districts where the Latino voting-age population exceeds the 2012 margin of…

Democrats Introduce Bill that Could Lead to Impeachment for Justices Thomas and Scalia

•July 6, 2014 • 5 Comments

Ethics would seem to be an obvious standard for the highest court in the land. But the SCOTUS’s 5-4 ruling favoring corporations over people last week proved otherwise. 

If this move by Democrats succeeds, it will halt the precarious direction the Robert’s court is trying to take the nation. And, maybe, start a new trend where federal officials are held accountable for their misdeeds.

Selling out to the corporations may come with a price, after all.

On Thursday, a group of Democratic lawmakers proposed a law to establish a Code of Conduct for the Supreme Court.

It’s surely to have Supreme Court Justices Thomas and Scalia quaking in their Tea Party boots because it would mean they would actually have to be independent of political and other influences. They would also have to have the appearance of independence. They would have to stay away from political activity. That part would be really hard.

As it stands, this law would help guarantee that Supreme Court Justices are held to the same ethical standards we expect of other judges.

Democratic Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, joined by Senators Chris Murphy, Richard Blumenthal and Sheldon Whitehouse, introduced the bill. It would make ethics mandatory
