Donald Trump Jr. claimed that Ocasio-Cortez’ policies would lead to Americans eating dogs. Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is still half a month away from taking over Rep. Joe Crowley’s (D-NY) seat in the House of Representatives, but the far right is obsessed with her every move—and anyone who watches Fox News or reads right-wing websites on a regular basis can see how hysterical and over-the-top much of the criticism has been. Like her mentor, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez describes herself as a “democratic socialist” but is essentially a New Deal/Great Society liberal; her political heritage is President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, President Lyndon B. Johnson and the modern governments of countries like Sweden and Denmark—not Che Guevara or Fidel Castro. But the far right is terrified of her, and as 2019 draws closer, the attacks on Ocasio-Cortez are becoming increasingly hysterical. Here are six of the most outrageous...

The press room at the White House, according to Saunders, only seats 49 reporters. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Saunders claims she is working on "standard practices" for reports in an interview on Fox News on Friday."We'll work with our team on that and certainly moving into Thanksgiving holiday we'll see how long that process takes, but I think there are some just standard practices," said Saunders while being interviewed by her father Mike Huckabee. Huckabee was filling in for Sean Hannity.The interview also included a clip of Chris Wallace's interview with the President that aired today. In it, the president re-iterated what Saunders said, stating that the White House has "to create rules and regulations for conduct, etc., etc." for reporters, and that should Acosta or presumably other reports violate those rules, "we'll throw him out or we'll stop the news conference."Jim Acosta of CNN has been regularly criticized by the administration, which led to a heated confrontation...

To take effect, the measure needs 60 percent approval. The lives of thousands of dogs suffering now — and in the future — lie in the balance. Greyhounds are the oldest purebred dog, revered as gods by the ancient Egyptians. Sadly, that elevated status has been lost through the horrific practice of racing them for human entertainment. But Florida voters have an opportunity to end the cruel practice in the Sunshine State — the epicenter of dog racing in the US — when they go to the polls for the November elections.If passed, Amendment 13 would “[phase] out commercial dog racing in connection with wagering by 2020.” The ban, which would amend the state’s constitution, needs at least 60 percent approval at the ballot box to become law.Christine Dorchak, president and co-founder of GREY2K USA Worldwide, a greyhound advocacy group that has successfully ended dog racing in nine states, as well as the only legal dog track in China, is one of the drafters of Florida’s Amen...

Government officials are not allowed to use their platforms for campaigning. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel, alleging that Sarah Huckabee Sanders—White House press secretary under the Trump Administration and daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee—violated the Hatch Act of 1939 by tweeting a photo of herself with rapper Kanye West.Passed when Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president, the Hatch Act of 1939 was named after Sen. Carl Hatch of New Mexico and forbids most employees of the executive branch of the federal government from certain overtly partisan activities or communications (exceptions include the president and the vice-president). And CREW is alleging that Sanders’ tweet violated the Hatch Act because West was wearing a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat in the photo.Of course, Twitter didn’t exist back in 1939. But it was amended in 2012 and now applies to mo...

It would be a bold move — but it's no longer unthinkable. With Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the far right now has a majority on the U.S. Supreme Court—which means that everything from abortion rights and gay rights and to health care reform could be on the chopping block. The High Court already leaned conservative, but while the retired Justice Anthony Kennedy (appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1987) was a right-winger with libertarian leanings at times, Kavanaugh is much more of a social conservative in the Clarence Thomas/Antonin Scalia vein. And this new edition of the Court could not only further the theocratic agenda of the Christian Right, but also, overturn the Affordable Care Act of 2010, criminalize affirmative action or attack voting rights—all of which makes an argument in favor of something President Franklin Delano Roosevelt attempted in the 1930s: Court packing.Presently, the Supreme Court has nine seats, but were the Court to be pac...

The highest court in the land is in desperate need of some changes. Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh has turned out to be the most controversial, divisive and unpopular Supreme Court nominee since Judge Robert Bork in 1987. According to recent polls, the number of Americans who support his confirmation ranges from 34% (NBC News/Wall Street Journal) to 39% (Gallup). But despite Kavanaugh’s unpopularity—and despite the fact that at least three women have accused him of sexual abuse—President Donald Trump isn’t about to withdraw the nomination. Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are determined to see Kavanaugh’s confirmation rammed through as quickly as possible. And the fact that Kavanaugh, now 53, could still be sitting on the Supreme Court 30 or 35 years from now begs the question: should Supreme Court justices be subject to term limits?The U.S. government, for the most part, has excellent checks and balances at the federal, state and local levels. Presidents are...
