Cohen describes Trump's profound racism before Congress 28.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
US Politics Many dared hope, after the 2008 election of Barack Obama, that the United States could someday enter a "post-racial" era. The election eight years later of Donald Trump to the same office demonstrated, sadly, that the scourge of racism is alive and well in America. Trump's profound racism was described by his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, when he testified before Congress Wednesday. Any attempt to heal the deep wounds of racism that scar this country must include a direct challenge to Donald Trump. "I know what Mr. Trump is. He is a racist. He is a con man. He is a cheat," Michael Cohen said early in his statement to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform. He elaborated: "The country has seen Mr. Trump court white supremacists and bigots. You have heard him call poorer countries 's***holes.' In private, he is even worse. He once asked me if I could name a country run by a Black person that wasn't a 's***hole.' This was when Barack Obama was president of the United ...

It's taboo to talk about Canada's real corporate scandal 22.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada While the SNC-Lavalin scandal has torn another strip off the "sunny ways" prime minister, there's another corporate scandal that makes the financial figures in that case -- mere hundreds of millions of dollars in fraud and bribes -- seem like pocket change. But no major political party will touch it, which speaks to the manner in which an all-party commitment to bedrock Canadian militarism squelches democratic discourse and strangles any opportunity for real economic justice. The corporate scandal you won't hear about on the campaign trail is the largest procurement project in Canadian history, one that will result in forking over at least $105 billion in corporate welfare to war manufacturers for a completely unnecessary fleet of Canadian warships. With every political campaign comes the costing question: how will modest investments in daycare, housing and pharmacare be paid for when Canada struggles with debt and deficits? But the question that will not be asked is whether voters ...

'Bombs not homes' defines Trudeau's feminist foreign policy 28.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada As Canada's three main political parties prepare for the 2019 election, there is one issue on which they will all agree: there will be no challenge to Canada's bloated war economy. While right-wing parties will rail against government waste and improper spending (an attack they usually aim at social programs that on the whole function well and would perform even better if properly funded), the federal War Department receives no such criticism, even when its fiscal mismanagement is well documented . So infused is the myth of Canadian benevolence on the world stage that no one from the NDP, Liberals or Conservatives will raise a scintilla of dissent regarding the already enormous $20-billion annual investment in an organization that regularly produces questionable financial audits, continues to cover up its role in war crimes such as the torture of Afghan detainees, and treats its veterans with a degree of disrespect that is beyond reprehensible. To date, no one sitting in Parliament has ...

Trudeau gaslights Canadian women and ignores their safety 26.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada Two weeks ago, a new study by the Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability confirmed the state of domestic terrorism against women in this land. A woman is murdered by a man every other day in Canada, with at least 78 known acts of femicide up to July 1 (the numbers are likely higher given that it is based largely on media reports). A disproportionate number of those murdered were Indigenous women. That very same day, there was audible silence from the self-proclaimed "feminist" Trudeau government. Instead of declaring that the time had come to finally launch a National Action Plan to End Violence Against Women and Girls (NAP), Trudeau was in Latvia, trying to match the toxic masculinity of Donald Trump by whipping out hundreds of millions of dollars to continue funding Canadian troops to engage in endless war games through the year 2023 against a non-existent threat to the people of this land. Indeed, instead of showing solidarity with Canadian women, Trudeau chose ...

The fight to stop digital oligarchs and save net neutrality 19.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
US Politics Imagine if Comcast or Verizon or AT&T, or any other "internet service providers" (ISPs), had the authority to decide what websites you could visit, or what video chat program you must use to call friends or family. Imagine if they manipulated the speed that websites load, giving preference to content providers that paid extra to be in an internet "fast lane." Imagine if they prevented you from watching videos on any site except YouTube, or barred you from using Skype. These ISPs provide the connection to the internet, but they shouldn't be able to control how you use the internet. This core quality of the internet, that it is open, is called "net neutrality." Current internet regulations just put in place by the Trump administration do away with net neutrality. One of President Donald Trump's key policy objectives, as stated by former White House adviser Stephen Bannon, is to "deconstruct the administrative state." At the Federal Communications Commission, Chairman Ajit Pai has been busily ...

Medicaid Work Requirements: Trump's War on the Poor Expands, One State at a Time 25.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Donald and Melania Trump walk out to the North Portico to greet French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron as the Trumps host a state dinner at the White House on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, in Washington, DC. (Photo: Jabin Botsford / The Washington Post via Getty Images) Unlike the highly publicized battle over Trumpcare, the Republican attack on Medicaid is happening one state at a time, with minimal scrutiny. Last week two state legislative bodies passed bills that would make Medicaid available only to people who meet stringent work requirements, bringing the total number of states pursuing work requirements to 12. Now, activists across the country are challenging "welfare 2.0," which threatens to leave people who are already struggling without health insurance.
