Lydia Saad – U.S. Conservatives Outnumber Liberals by Narrowing Margin

PRINCETON, N.J. — Many more Americans have considered themselves politically conservative than liberal since the early 1990s. That remained the case in 2016, when an average of 36% of U.S. adults throughout the year identified themselves as conservative and 25% as liberal. Yet that 11-percentage-point margin is half of what it was at its peak in 1996 and is down …

Lawrence Davidson – The Rise of White Racial Nationalism

There is little doubt that white racism played a role in the U.S. presidential election of 2016. As Zach Beauchamp demonstrates in a Nov. 10 article at Vox.com, enthusiastic support for Donald Trump – 10 on a scale of 10 – among white voters in mostly white geographic areas was about 25 percent. However, in areas of growing ethnic and …

Alternative Visions – US Incomes And Pre-Election Hype About Economic Recovery – 09.16.16

Jack takes on recent reports from private and government sources this past week that US incomes and the economy are finally recovering. Taking issue with Paul Krugman’s column today, ‘Trickle Up Economics’, hyping the reports, Jack cites and explains contrary data that show the reports and Krugman punditry are questionable. Alternative sources, like the Gallup Poll, show 87% of US population surveyed consider the economy poor or getting worse. Other sources show the doubling of death rates from drugs, suicide, and alcohol for the 25-64 age group—Trump’s target voters in key swing states. Jack discusses data showing Trump now leads in key swing states, Ohio and Florida, where incomes remain down as much as 10%, as well as in other swing states. Why Clinton’s campaign is trying to reorient to the 25-64 group and millennials—too little too late. The show concludes with Jack repeating his prediction of US recession in 2017-18, and predicting post-election policies of more business tax cuts, infrastructure spending, TPP, and Fed interest rate hikes are coming.

PATRICIA COHEN – Over 50, Female and Jobless Even as Others Return to Work

But the better job market is not good enough to land Chettie McAfee a job. Laid off at the start of the recession from the diagnostic testing firm in Seattle where she …

Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 11.05.15

SHUTTING NUKES & STEALING OHIO’S CORPORATE POT REFERENDUM are what’s happening in today’s Solartopia Show.

TIM JUDSON and JESSICA AZULAY first join us to celebrate the announcement that the FitzGerald nuke in upstate New York will be closed. Entergy has said it will shut the ancient, dangerous reactor in October of 2016. Governor Andrew Cuomo has objected. But Cuomo is working to shut the reactors at INDIAN POINT near New York City so we’re not sure what to make of it. But Jessica give us the critical detail.

We then hear from my long-time co-conspirator BOB FITRAKIS about the CORPORATE MARIJUANA REFERENDUM allegedly defeated in Ohio. After watching elections being stolen here at least since 2004, we notice the usual symptoms of a rigged vote count. The Secretary of State, who allegedly administers a fair vote count, was a vehement opponent of the legalization of pot, and even accused its backers of fraud. There were breakdowns in Cincinnati in the polling apparatus. And obvious irregularities in Dayton and elsewhere. Polls showed Ohioans favoring the referendum by a significant margin but then defeating it in the balloting by 2:1, which makes no sense. Unless you’re really really stoned, which Ohio will again have to wait a while to do, at least legally.

Matt Taibbi – In the Age of Trump, Will Democrats Sell Out More, or Less?

ver the weekend, polls showed that that the Trump-fueled collapse of the Republican Party is reaching historic depths. According to CNN, the GOP’s approval rating is now down to 32 percent, the lowest level in over two decades. It probably won’t be trending up anytime soon, either, now that the Trump campaign is turning “you can’t rape your spouse” into …
