Barack Obama’s USDA is poised to turn regulation of meat and poultry processors over to the industry itself. Sacrificing public and worker safety on the altar of corporate profits, the president demonstrates the real meaning of America’s exceptional morality.
Climate change denial may ultimately be the most evil form of propaganda ever deployed. Exploiting the ignorance of the ill-informed, it encourages the human race to destroy itself and the rest of nature. And all this for a few dollars more.
In response to Israel’s growing concerns about a diplomatic solution for Syria’s chemical weapons, their faithful propagandist Cal Thomas has had to contradict almost everything he just told us.
Forget Syria. America’s religious fundamentalists and the Israelis who exploit them want a war with Iran. And just as with Iraq, Cal Thomas is the man to sell it.
Instead of paying tribute to Dr. King’s dream, President Obama has defiled it with his hypocritical war-mongering. And his Secretary of State needs to explain to the world what consequences America will suffer for its own use of chemical weapons.
Critics of Monsanto are frequently demonized as environmental extremists. But the company’s track record and future goals make it clear that its apologists’ propaganda is not just hypocritical but extremely dangerous.
Fracking propaganda is being drilled into the minds of Americans by syndicated columnists and the president himself. Why are we so eager to make this deal with the devil?
The editors of the Daily Commercial presented an article by Dale McFeatters as one of their own. Don’t hold your breath waiting for an apology.
The Walton Family is worth $116 billion. The average Wal-Mart associate makes $8.81/hour. For corporate shill Star Parker, this inequality is a cause for celebration.
The Republican Party has degenerated into an American Taliban. It claims to value life, yet exhibits callous indifference to the victims of America’s imperial wars and the suffering of billions of animals in industrialized agriculture.
The Supreme Court’s two gay-marriage decisions, the Windsor and Perry cases, are little more than token gestures toward equality. The conservative essence of these decisions should not be obscured by the right’s hysterical reaction.
Repeal of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by the Roberts Court represents a shocking abuse of the Supreme Court’s power. But the decision provides a perfect opportunity to ask just how much the right to vote really means in the plutocratic United States.
The real IRS scandal we should be talking about is not the victimization of tea party groups by the IRS, but the corruption of a political system that grants special rights to the plutocracy.
As the United States officially degenerates into a police state, sacrificing the Fourth Amendment on the altar of security, the Second Amendment remains curiously sacrosanct. It’s too bad that gun owners are too scared to actually use their rights in the manner they claim was intended.
America’s war on the wolf, perhaps the ultimate icon of wilderness and a keystone species in ecology, has exposed the ugly lengths to which ruling interests will go to get their way. Our environmental heritage and our democracy are both being steadily destroyed.
Cal Thomas’s latest exercise in fear-mongering seeks to exploit the murder of a British soldier in London for the purpose of demonizing Islam. Conveniently overlooked, as always, is the massive pool of blood spilled by America and its supposedly civilized Western allies.
The conviction of Kermit Gosnell has been a god-send for the right-to-life movement, of which Star Parker considers herself a leading light. Sadly, her understanding of reality is warped beyond belief by her hypocritical misogyny and plutocratic pandering.
The Republican Party’s exploitation of the Benghazi scandal has been a breathtaking example of hypocrisy. Far from enlightening the American people, they have added to the many layers of deception that typify American imperialism.
In the wake of the Boston bombing, America’s imperial war hawks have been gorging themselves on belligerence. A noxious tag-team of Clifford May and Cal Thomas unintentionally helps us understand the connection between war and plutocracy.
