Dave Lindorff, This Can't Be Happening: 'The ongoing case of Raymond Davis, the CIA contractor facing murder charges in Lahore for the execution-style slaying of two apparent agents of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, is apparently leading to a roll-back of America's espionage and Special Operations activities in Pakistan.'

The Kochs and the Guv Stir Up a Hornets' Nest

Jim Hightower, Truthout: 'Thank you, Scott Walker! And you, too, Charles and David Koch! Thanks for being so ham-handed in pushing your self-serving, virulently anti-union agenda on the schoolteachers, health care workers, park rangers and other public employees of Wisconsin. The Birchite billionaire Koch brothers and Walker, their gubernatorial hatchet man in the Badger State, have unwittingly done a tremendous favor for our country's progressive movement. Thanks to them, America's workaday majority has been awakened.'

How Koch Industries Makes Billions Corrupting Government and Polluting for Free

Part 2

Lee Fang, ThinkProgress: 'In an opinion piece published today responding to his critics, Koch Industries CEO Charles Koch promised to continue to finance anti-government, right-wing front groups. Charles writes that the 'purpose of business is to efficiently convert resources into products and services that make people's lives better. But when it comes to Koch's carcinogenic pollution and carbon emissions, the purpose of Koch's political giving is to avoid any financial responsibility - no matter who gets hurt.'

Michael Moore: People Still Have the Power


Laura Flanders, GRITtv: 'This is a movement that is not going to stop,' says filmmaker Michael Moore of the uprising in Madison, Wisconsin (and across the country - all 50 states held solidarity rallies this weekend). 'I knew sooner or later people would say they've had enough.' Michael joins Laura in studio for part one of a two-part conversation about the war on working people in America. He notes that it started in 1981 with Reagan's attack on the air traffic controllers, and it's mostly targeted the poor, as with Clinton's welfare reform. But the attacks on middle class families have finally reached a point where people aren't going to take it anymore.'

America Waking Up to Value of Unions

Dave Johnson, Campaign for America's Future: 'As Abraham Lincoln famously said, 'you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.' When you put enough dots in front of people sooner or later they will connect the dots. And Americans are connecting the dots.'

One Million Recall Signatures Versus One Partisan Judge

Ernest A. Canning, The Brad Blog: ''With polls showing 58% of respondents in WI favor Recall, delay and endless litigation provide the immensely unpopular, Koch-supported governor with a means to cling to power beyond the time envisioned by existing statutes, and in violation of the rights of Badger State voters.''

How the Rich Soaked the Rest of Us

Richard D. Wolff, Truthout: 'Over the last half-century, the richest Americans have shifted the burden of the federal individual income tax off themselves and onto everybody else. The three convenient and accurate Wikipedia graphs below show the details. The first graph compares the official tax rates paid by the top and bottom income earners. Note especially that from the end of the Second World War into the early 1960s, the highest income earners paid a tax rate over 90 percent for many years. Today, the top earners pay a rate of only 35 percent. Note, also, how the gap between the rates paid by the richest and the poorest has narrowed. If we take into account the many loopholes the rich can and do use far more than the poor, the gap narrows even more.'

by Ronald Bailey


The history of the last 60 years is not just an unending series of coups and cyclical repression.
