(Use buttons below to advance or go back)
The Koch Brothers' 'Samson Option' - The fiscal crisis in Washington is not simply a threat to economic and government stability, as serious as that is. It is a premeditated scheme to carve out a new constitutional structure that gives the Koch Brothers and other right-wing billionaires the power to void the democratic process. A Federal Budget Crisis Months in the Planning - Shortly after President Obama started his second term, a loose-knit coalition of conservative activists led by former Attorney General Edwin Meese III gathered in the capital to plot strategy. Their push to repeal Mr. Obama’s health care law was going nowhere, and they desperately needed a new plan. Republican Extremism and the Lessons of History - This crisis is about nothing other than the Republican Party - its radicalization, its stunning lack of leadership and its disregard for the Constitution. Inside the Republican Suicide Machine - It's open warfare within the GOP - and all of America is caught in the crossfire. Looting the Pension Funds - All across America, Wall Street is grabbing money meant for public workers. Taxpayers are expected to make up the losses. 5 Years Later, Wall Street Still Sucking Life Out of America Like Vampires at a Blood Drive - Only massive reform and no-holds-barred prosecutorial assault will drive a stake into the heart of this monster. But regulators refuse to take any kind of action. Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever - The Illuminati were amateurs. The second huge financial scandal of the year reveals the real international conspiracy: There's no price the big banks can't fix. Racism and the American Right - From the start of the Republic to today's Republican ranting against Barack Obama, racism has been a central element of the American Right. But this ugly feature of U.S. history has often come concealed behind words praising traditions, liberty and states' rights. Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever - The Illuminati were amateurs. The second huge financial scandal of the year reveals the real international conspiracy: There's no price the big banks can't fix. How the GOP Became the Party of the Rich - The inside story of how the Republicans abandoned the poor and the middle class to pursue their relentless agenda of tax cuts for the wealthiest one percent. The GOP's Real Agenda - Since last fall, Republicans have pretended to be more moderate - but their politics are harsher and more destructive than ever Gangster Bankers: Too Big to Jail - How HSBC hooked up with drug traffickers and terrorists.

And the worst may be yet to come. The GOP’s 1 Trillion Dollar Lie - How a right-wing whopper about the cost of welfare was born. Insight: How Republicans engineered a blow to Michigan's powerful unions - Republicans executed a plan - the timing, the language of the bills, the media strategy, and perhaps most importantly, the behind-the-scenes lobbying of top Republicans including Snyder. Quelle Surprise! The Geithner Doctrine Not Only Puts Banks Above the Law, It Also Serves to Excuse Their Bad Behavior - Our Treasury Secretary, also known as the Bailouter in Chief and "Foamy," has a default explanation for why ordinary citizens must bend over every time banking interests are threatened. The more formal statement of this policy is the Geithner Doctrine, which is "nothing must be done that will destablize the banking system." However, Geithner also subscribes to the Humpty Dumpty School of Language, in which words mean what he chooses them to mean, nothing more or less. So "destabilize" means "hurts the profits or reputation of" and "banking system" means "any bank that is pretty big and/or well connected". Why It is Essential That Criminal Bankers are Prosecuted - I have never understood why 'white collar' criminals should be treated any differently from any other criminals, but the fact remains that they are treated differently, and it has been so for many years. Famous 5-4 Decisions by the One Percent Court Where the Money Lives - Nicholas Shaxson delves into the murky world of offshore finance, revealing loopholes that allow the very wealthy to skirt tax laws, and investigating just how much of Romney’s fortune (with $30 million in Bain Capital funds in the Cayman Islands alone?) looks pretty strange for a presidential candidate. The Scam Wall Street Learned From the Mafia - How America's biggest banks took part in a nationwide bid-rigging conspiracy - until they were caught on tape. Letting Us Die: Republican Governors Are The New "Death Panel" Democrats Crush Republicans as Capitalists in the White House The financial system was systemically corrupt Guilty as Charged: How the GOP Killed Washington How Wall Street Killed Financial Reform - It's bad enough that the banks strangled the Dodd-Frank law. Even worse is the way they did it - with a big assist from Congress and the White House.

Voter Suppression 101: How Conservatives Are Conspiring to Disenfranchise Millions of Americans Bank of America: Too Crooked to Fail - The bank has defrauded everyone from investors and insurers to homeowners and the unemployed. So why does the government keep bailing it out? How the Right’s Smear Machine Started - Americans sometimes wonder how the nation’s political process got so unspeakably nasty with vitriol pouring forth especially from right-wing voices like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Michael Savage, to name just a few.
