I really knew nothing about the Koch Brothers or Koch industries until Rachel Maddow came on the scene and began talking about who was really financing the Tea Party and the so-called 'grass roots' movement. So much has changed since they took the House in 2010. While Rachel and others on MSNBC have been exposing the Koch Brothers and others on the right, it was only recently that the politicians have began criticizing the big miney duo. I even recall Speaker Boehner commenting on the power of outside groups such as the Heritage Foundation, now run by Koch stooge Jim Demint (Tea Party darling and backer of Ted Cruz). Now comes this latest SCOTUS ruling allowing those who wish to, to donate up to $5,200 to as many candidates as they wish. I did not like the ruling but do not consider it to be nearly as bad as the Citizens United ruling that pretty much allows super PACS unlimited funds. Perhaps now by exposing the dark money, Harry Reid, Bernie Sanders, and other bold politicians, can shine a spotlight on ...

Bernie Sanders: "In order to win support from the American Middle Class, it is absolutely imperative that the president provide a strong agenda that speaks to their needs, and that makes clear he will fight to win those proposals against the right-wing extremists who now control the Republican Party.

Social Security has not added one penny to the deficit because it is funded by the payroll tax. Social Security has a $2.7 trillion surplus and can pay out every benefit owed to every eligible American for the next 21 years. 2) Obama must tell the American people that he is not going to balance the budget on the backs of the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor. The deficit was largely caused by Bush's two unpaid-for wars, tax breaks for the rich and the Wall Street-caused recession. The president must reduce the deficit by asking the wealthiest people in ...

Franklin D. Roosevelt, who stood up to the banksters unlike any of today's leaders excepting Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, battled daily with the would be plutocrats of his day and beat them back with a constant salvo of verbiage buffered with pro-people legislation. He held them at bay. He knew that given the chance, powerful businessmen would take control of our government. He called it fascism. And that is where we are today.

America needs a new FDR to stand steadfast with the people or fascism is just around the corner.
