The Nunes Memo And The Regressive Progressive Rhetoric It Spawned

Greg Palast 

By Greg Palast with Dennis J. Bernstein

When the FBI applied to the rubber-stamp FISA court for a warrant to surveil Trump associate Carter Page they were more than a little economical with the truth. Basing their warrant request, in part, on information contained in the now-infamous Fusion GPS dossier, they omitted to mention that …more

… we aren’t running out of oil, we’re running out of HEROISM.  Ted Rall’s biography in cartoon form is a how-to book on how to make a hero—the creation of courage.

Now he’s back, with a front-runner status conferred by the name-recognition care of the exposure of his jockey shorts.

New York’s school system, with one million students, is desperately screwed up. What is Weiner’s position on privatizing the schools through the “charter” system? The Times won’t tell us.
