On the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act
Fifty years ago today, after a protracted civil-rights struggle that was both conciliatory and militant, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Voting Rights Act of 1965 prohibiting all states from impeding or denying African Americans the right to vote. The legislation also strengthened existing antidiscrimination laws and gave new authority to the U.S. Attorney General to prosecute offending states.
Reflecting on the half-century since the passage of the VRA, Leid Stories observes the many ways in which both the letter and intent of the act have been violated. Moreover, the question central to the VRA and several related legal cases remains unanswered: Are African Americans citizens of the United States?
Today on “This Can’t Be Happening!” journalist Alfredo Lopez talks with colleague and host Dave Lindorff about two stories that intimately concern him. The first is a fierce attack by anti-abortion forces, most likely by hired experts located in Russia or China, on a progressive web-hosting service Lopez helped found, MayFirst.org. Lopez then talks about the debt crisis in Puerto Rico, arguably as bad or worse than the crisis in Greece, but far harder to combat because of the island’s colonial status under US domination.

Childhood illness has changed so much since the early 20th century. Mortality rates are down markedly, and that’s a good thing. But we seem to have traded infectious disease for chronic illness.
Some of most common afflictions affecting so many children are allergies — food, environmental, and idiopathic in origin. Parents and clinicians alike are bewildered. Why are kids so darn red and itchy, bumpy and rashy anyway? Debating the causes doesn’t get us far. We’re more concerned about relief.
What happens if you don’t treat allergies?
What are the most effective allergy treatments?
What’s the relationship between allergy symptoms and chronic illness?
What’s possible for children when allergy treatment is effective?
Lawrence Caprio, ND recognized early in his career the importance of allergy treatment as an effective adjunct to the management of the majority of chronic degenerative diseases seen in medical practice today. Subsequently, he was among the first to pioneer the Interro System of computerized testing developed in Provo, Utah and the science of ‘phenolic food compounds’ researched by Dr. Robert Gardiner at Brigham Young University. Dr. Caprio successfully integrated these modalities and developed a uniquely effective system of non-invasive allergy testing and sublingual immunotherapy which he currently uses. This system of computerized non-invasive electrodermal testing and optimal dose sub-lingual immunotherapy allows for the safe, rapid desensitization of acute allergy symptoms, as well as the effective long term management of chronic allergic problems. Dr Caprio attended the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon, where he obtained his degree in 1979. Since that time, he has built a successful 35+ year practice of Naturopathic and Preventive Medicine in Westport, CT. He treats patients worldwide.
In year since searing death, Ferguson sees uneven change. Yes, there has been change, but how substantial has it been? Did it take the death of Michael Brown to bring about that change?
Another exoneration in Brooklyn brings total since last year to 14. DA Ken Thompson deserves the credit for this, but it also begs the question, what was the Das office doing before he got there?
In Congress, Obama begins campaign for Iran nuclear deal. His efforts are both public and private. However, when people talk about a better deal, just how do they think they’ll get it? Back out of this one, do they really think the Iranians will come back to the table?
The Voting Rights Act at 50. Back in the day, when people would warn against the erosion of the Act, I was one of those who thought they were overreacting. I was wrong. The attacks on the Voting Rights Act teaches us we must remain vigilant, lest someone try and take what was won at a terrible price.
John Kasich is in, Rick Perry is out in first Republican debate. The whole concept of upper and lower tiers is anti democratic on its face. And to use polling??? Nothing more than a means to generate money.
A belated look at New York’s cooling towers, prime suspect in Legionnaires outbreak. No matter what the suspect, the City should have been quicker to act and inspect the towers, if that’s where they suspect it comes from.
Synthetic marijuana gives people abnormal strength, makes them dangerous: NYPD. Leaving aside the similarities to the reefer scare of the early 20th century, this K2 looks like a problem. The place to stop it is at the point of sale, pure and simple.
Bar owner eliminated tips, raised prices and started paying everyone $15 dollars an hour. This was in Portland, Oregon where the cost of living is very high. Do you think it’s a good idea? He did it immediately, not in increments like politicians do.
The restrictions journalists agreed to in order to attend the Koch brothers’ conference. You don’t really want to ask why they agreed, do you?
Jeb!: “I’m not sure we need a half billion dollars for women’s health issues. He’s moonwalking backward, but this one’s going to hurt him.
Horrific bad factory farmers can’t put you in jail for exposing them no more. No more AG-Gag? Time to celebrate!
Is the financial deprivation of entire nations engendering a new level of frustration and political unrest? Are the unlikely top-ranked US presidential candidates a sign that the Europeans aren’t the only ones who want to “throw the bums out?” Ellen engages these emerging political themes in her conversation with renown author, advisor and Economics professor Michael Hudson, just back from his consultations with Greece’s Syriza party. But also revolting is the blatant theft of national assets and impoverishment of the citizens of nations whose governments got caught up in the shady dealings of global bankers and their political cronies. To relieve the pressure, Swami Beyondananda offers a simple soliloquy on the money world and we borrow a bit of consumer financial planning advice from author Nomi Prins.
My guest Gregory A. Smith, MD talks about his new film, American Addict II, examines the corruption of American society by drug dealers (legal and illegal), and describes his informed therapeutic approach to withdrawal from psychiatric drugs and opiates. Full of good facts and inspiring.

Trumped and OutFoxed: The Republicans’ Undemocratic Debate
And a bloviating billionaire shall lead them … into debate.
Welcome to the new world of political discourse, a national “debate” among presidential contenders that really should be called “Presidential Celebrity Apprentice: A Donald Trump-Fox News Production.”
In prime time tomorrow evening, Trump and nine other Republican presidential hopefuls who made the first “cut” based on their showings in five recent national polls, square off against each other for two hours. An undercard slate of seven who didn’t poll will have to make do with an hour of air time in a separate, non-prime-time debate earlier.
Leid Stories says the much-vaunted debate is indeed historic–though not for reasons most would think.
