Republicans Block President Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee

Mitch-Supreme-Court-web

petition

Barely an hour after the news broke of the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) made it clear that he has no intention of letting President Barack Obama replace the conservative icon.  McConnell stated, “The American people‎ should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice”.

McConnell stating that “The American people‎ should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice” is an outrageous statement.  The American people have already spoken… they elected Barack Obama as President and he has nominated a new Supreme Court Justice as required by the United States Constitution.

mcconnell-court

Refusing to consider a Supreme Court Nominee during the last year of this Presidents term is unprecedented. Ronald Reagan nominated a Supreme Court Justice during his last year in office and Mitch McConnell confirmed his Nominee.

Mitch McConnell and Republicans has made blocking President Obama their top priority above serving the American people.

On January 20, 2009, the day of President Obama’s Inauguration, Republican leaders in Congress plotted to obstruct everything President Obama proposed to make his presidency a failure with no regard to how it would negatively affect the American people, so they could win the White House back in 2012.

Those present who attended the meeting included Republicans Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Pete Sessions, Pete Hoekstra, Tom Coburn, Bob Corker and Newt Gingrich who plotted to sabotage, undermine and destroy America’s Economy by among other things “Just Say No” to everything President Obama proposed.

.

On Oct. 29, 2010 Sen. Mitch McConnell stated in an interview with the National Journal, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

Now Mitch McConnell and Republicans plan to block President Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee, Merrick Garland.

In a letter to Mitch McConnell signed by Republicans on the Judiciary Committee which included Chuck Grassley, John Cornyn, Mike Lee, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, Orrin Hatch, Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake stated “to protect the will of the people, this committee will not hold hearings on any Supreme Court nominee until our next president is sworn in”

Here’s a copy of the document signed by Republican traitors who has decided to put Politics above doing their job and serving the American people.

Please call each of them and tell them what you think about their  treasonous conduct.

Republicans Responsible for Lead Poisoning in Flint Michigan

Flint, MI Contaminated Water

Republican Governor Rick Snyder OK’d switching the water supply from the Detroit system which gets it’s water from Lake Huron (the Great Lakes) to the Flint River in April 2014 to save money. The Flint River water being more corrosive, caused high levels of lead in the drinking water. As a result, children who drank this contaminated water will likely suffer life long brain damage from lead poisoning.

.

.

UPDATE: As of 1-5-2016, The US Department of Justice in Michigan has indicated that they will be launching an investigation into the Flint Water issue.

The reason why Republicans are responsible for this is because Michigan Republicans created a law which allows Gov Rick Snyder to appoint Emergency Managers who he can install in any city he wants. These Emergency Managers can bypass and circumvent the power of elected officials and do practically anything they want.

Since Republican Gov Rick Snyder installed a Emergency Manager in Flint MI and over-rode the elected officials ability to make any decisions, it was ultimately Republican Gov Rick Snyder’s decision to switch the water supply from the Detroit system which gets it water from Lake Huron (the Great Lakes) to the Flint River in April 2014 to save money. Therefore he and his Republican majority is responsible for this outrage.

If you want to tell Gov. Rick Snyder what you think, here’s his phone number; 517-373-3400

This is what you get when you elect Republicans to office. They have proven time and time again that they don’t care about Democracy or the American people.

Most Americans have no idea that anything like this is going on in the United States of American.

Stop Prescription Drug Price Gouging

stop prescription drug price gouging

Martin Shkreli, 32, the founder and chief executive of Turing Pharmaceuticals, recently purchased the rights to Daraprim and immediately increased the cost from $13.50 to $750 per pill.

Daraprim, known generically as pyrimethamine, is used mainly to treat toxoplasmosis, a parasite infection that can cause serious or even life-threatening problems for babies born to women who become infected during pregnancy, and also for people with compromised immune systems, like AIDS patients and certain cancer patients.

If you haven’t seen news reports about this issue, click here to view this news article.

Having access to this drug could mean the difference between life or death. $750 a pill would make the drug unaffordable and inaccessible to people who don’t have insurance.

This is just one example of Prescription Drug Price Gouging which American citizens are being subjected to.

Click here to sign petition: https://www.change.org/p/stop-drug-price-gouging

The signers of this petition demand that legislation be passed as soon as possible to stop Prescription Drug Price Gouging and to make it illegal to raise prices on a prescription drug by more than 50% after the rights has been purchased by another entity.

Drug prices in general are higher in the United States than any other country in the world and that is WRONG.  Republicans are to blame for this.

We demand international open market access to Prescription Drugs so Americans can buy Prescription Drugs from any country in the world.

10 Ideas to Save the Economy

We need to expand Social Security to prevent the looming retirement crisis, and we can do it simply by asking billionaires to pay their fair share.

In the Big Picture, two-thirds of seniors derive over half of their income from Social Security, and one-third of seniors rely on it for at least 90% of their income. Without it, the poverty rate of our seniors would be 45%, instead of just 10%. Social Security was created in the wake of the Great Depression as a bulwark against economic insecurity, and it is now more important than ever. We must:

  • Increase Social Security benefits to more accurately reflect the modern cost of living and the lack of income of current retirees.
  • Scrap the cap and ask millionaires and billionaires to pay Social Security taxes on 100% of their income, just as their employees do.

Campaign Finance Reform

Capitol Hill gyrocopter pilot protesting campaign finance

Florida postal worker Doug Hughes flew a one-man helicopter on to the lawn of the Capitol to protest the influx of millions of dollars in dark, secret money into U.S. elections.

His message was lost with the mainstream media.  They focused on security issues rather than Mr. Hughes message about Campaign Finance Reform.

.

 

The Republican dominated Supreme Court gave Millionaires and Billionaires the power to buy elections through the “Citizens United” decision. This is why democrats want to pass legislation to correct this problem.

Since the Republican party is the party of the rich and they get billions of dollars in donations from billionaires, Republican do not want Campaign Finance Reform.

As a cover story, they claim that Campaign Finance Reform violates “free speech”. They are OK with billionaires being able to buy elections since it benefits Republicans.

The fact is, billionaires buying elections is destroying democracy.

Republicans Rigging Elections by Gerrymandering Districts

Republicans are rigging elections and destroying Democracy by Gerrymandering Districts.

As you can see from the graph above, a disproportionate number of Republicans were elected in relation to votes cast.

This is something you would expect in a Banana Dictator Republic, not the United States of America.

Former Pro-GMO Biotech Scientist Admits GMOs Aren’t Safe

Former Pro-GMO Biotech Scientist Admits GMOs Aren’t Safe, Refutes Claims by Monsanto

 

Dr. Thierry Vrain, a former GMO biotechnologist who has come out with a lot of information that should open people’s eyes about the real dangers of genetically modified foods and crops.

Vrain will be the first to admit that Monsanto has conducted a lot of studies showing that GMOs are safe, but he changed his own tune about ten years ago when he started reading scientific journals from other countries.

Vrain thinks the public is being swindled. He believes we should all demand that government agencies replicate tests showing that GMOs are safe rather than rely on studies paid for by the biotech companies. He continues:

“The Bt corn and soya plants that are now everywhere in our environment are registered as insecticides. But are these insecticidal plants regulated and have their proteins been tested for safety? Not by the federal departments in charge of food safety, not in Canada and not in the U.S.

There are no long-term feeding studies performed in these countries to demonstrate the claims that engineered corn and soya are safe. All we have are scientific studies out of Europe and Russia, showing that rats fed engineered food die prematurely.

These studies show that proteins produced by engineered plants are different than what they should be. Inserting a gene in a genome using this technology can and does result in damaged proteins. The scientific literature is full of studies showing that engineered corn and soya contain toxic or allergenic proteins.”
