America’s indifference to death is nothing new — but it’s made this crisis much worse 16.5.2020 Raw Story
American culture has always demonstrated a callous indifference to death. At our nation’s inception, its triumphant rhetoric of equality and democratic revolution excluded any acknowledgment of slavery, or the genocide conducted against its Native population. Over the past two centuries, America’s history of uninterrupted war, conquest and exploitation bred into the public too much comfort with the […]

Mike Pence’s “Special Envoy” in foreign aid office sparked an ethics complaint just weeks after he started job 13.5.2020 Raw Story
In early 2018, an incoming Trump political appointee and ally of Vice President Mike Pence made an unusual suggestion to a United Nations agency whose funding hinged on support from a skeptical Trump administration: He pitched them to do business with one of his private-sector clients. “Might merit your team’s consideration,” Max Primorac wrote in […]

Workers face the risk of being replaced by robots amid the coronavirus pandemic 7.5.2020 Raw Story
The federal coronavirus bailout contains no restrictions on corporate investment in automation. That may be the most serious long term consequence of the pandemic. It is widely reported how weak the federal guidelines are for use of coronavirus bailout funds. Most of the restrictions that require businesses to use taxpayer provided bailout dollars to retain their workforces […]

Trump’s hollow and angsty threat to Iran showed he must be really out of his mind 2.5.2020 Raw Story
A tweet by the U.S. President Donald Trump on April 22 said, “I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.” Trump seems to be talking the language of war while indulging in politics by other means. Like his ban on immigration, […]

Did this virus come from a lab? Maybe not — but it exposes the threat of a biowarfare arms race 24.4.2020 Raw Story
There is no scientific evidence that the novel coronavirus was bioengineered, but its origins are not entirely clear. Deadly pathogens discovered in the wild can be studied in secret in biowarfare labs — and sometimes made more dangerous. That possibility, and other plausible scenarios, have been incorrectly dismissed in remarks by some scientists and  government officials, and […]

This stunningly detailed timeline of Trump’s failures shows America’s coronavirus crisis was a man-made disaster 17.4.2020 Raw Story
Crises have a way of sorting the good presidents from the bad. Historians consistently rank Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt among the top three presidents for their handling of the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II. By contrast, the string of catastrophes that trailed George W. Bush, from Iraq to Hurricane Katrina to his obliviousness to warning signs in the […]

Acosta: Trump Is ‘Baghdad Bob’ on Coronavirus, Attacking China, WHO Is ‘Distraction’ 15.4.2020 NewsBusters
CNN was up to no good early Tuesday night, dipping in and out of the White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing to peddle of liberal punditry and Trump hate, even though some CNNers painfully conceded that President Trump was right about the World Health Organization’s China fetish. That didn’t apply to chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who called Trump “Baghdad Bob” on the virus and sided with communist China and the WHO because talking about them was “a ...
A Shockingly Long List of Corrupt Officials and Political Allies Pardoned by Trump 13.4.2020 Mother Jones
As the 2020 race heats up, Donald Trump has placed his use of his pardon powers at the center of his reelection bid. One widely discussed campaign ad, aired during the Super Bowl, featured Alice Johnson—a black woman who served 21 years in prison for a nonviolent drug offense before Trump commuted her sentence in […]

Will Trump and His Enablers Ever Face Accountability for the Coronavirus Massacre? 8.4.2020 Mother Jones
They misrepresented the threat. They disregarded experts. They did not prepare adequately. And thousands of Americans died.  And they got away with it. The implementers, cheerleaders, and enablers of the catastrophic Iraq War were never punished for their actions. It’s not too early to wonder if Donald Trump and those who joined him in discounting […]

America’s global military presence skyrockets under Trump: US commandos now deployed to 141 nations 1.4.2020 Raw Story
Last October, a group of eight Apache attack and CH-47 Chinook helicopters carrying U.S. commandos roared out of an airfield in Iraq. They raced through Turkish airspace and across the Syrian border, coming in low as they approached a village just north of Idlib Province where Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, his bodyguards, and some of […]

CNN's 'New Day' Gives Paul Krugman Free Time to Bash GOP on Coronavirus, Tax Cuts 3.3.2020 NewsBusters
On Monday's New Day show, CNN gave an unchallenged forum to liberal economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman to trash the Trump administration and other Republicans over issues like tax cuts and the Coronavirus issue, the latter of which he likened to President George W. Bush's handling of the WMD issue before the Iraq War. He also asserted that climate change skeptics and supporters of tax cuts are being dishonest, and continue to push "zombie" ideas because of entities like Fox News and the funding of ...
