Obama 'Deeply Disappointed' In Senate Republicans For Blocking Judicial Nominees

Obama 'Deeply Disappointed' In Senate Republicans For Blocking Judicial Nominees | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
President Barack Obama said Monday that he is "deeply disappointed" in Senate Republicans for blocking three of his nominees to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

 

"Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) made a similar statement on the Senate floor last Wednesday.

"The powerful interests that work to rig the Supreme Court also want to rig the lower courts," Warren said. "In the next five years, the D.C. Circuit will decide some of the most important cases of our time, including cases that will decide whether Wall Street reform will have real bite or whether it will just be toothless."

Latest Google scandal exposes hypocrisy of liberal AGs

Latest Google scandal exposes hypocrisy of liberal AGs | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Google, the tech behemoth that did so much to elect and re-elect President Obama and subsequently prop up Hilary Clinton’s disastrous campaign for the White House, has recently found itself at the center of yet another scandal.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Ok FOX and your Red State Opinion article.... let's talk Hypocrites! Let's talk about ALEC (the American Legislative Exchange Council) the real owners of the Red States of the USA and donor promoters of the GOP election wins. Let's talk GOP libertarian leaning Cato Institute think tank where The founder of FOX news, the fast tracked immigrant Murdoch, once set on the board of directors. Fox still host commenters regularly from these groups that have a selfish interest in promoting small government and regulations to enable their members to avoid serious consequences of dangerous corporate behaviors that go wrong and hurt people. Oh yes let's talk frankly about the Heritage Foundation as well when we talk hypocrites. The left is entering into the corruption game way too late... The democrats just need to sit back and shine the light on all these industries and wealthy donors in these conniving groups to show people the real corruptors that had the money to buy a GOP party and they think they bought or got a nation. Nearly all the wealth these people and industries use to corrupt policy in their favor is generated from all of us doing business with them and that can change!

EU to find ways to make Google, Facebook and Amazon pay more tax | Jennifer Rankin | The Guardian

EU to find ways to make Google, Facebook and Amazon pay more tax | Jennifer Rankin | The Guardian | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it

The EU is pushing ahead with plans to rewrite tax rules for technology companies, aimed at increasing governments’ take from the likes of Google, Facebook and Amazon.

The European commission is looking at ways to capture tax from companies that may have no offices, shops or other physical presence in a country, but are accruing profits through large numbers of online users or customers.

A report published by the commission on Thursday said technology companies paid less than half the tax of bricks-and-mortar businesses.

A digital business with international operations typically pays a 10.1% tax rate in the EU, compared with a 23.2% rate levied on traditional companies, said the report.

What did Jesus say about natural disasters? | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Several years ago in my hometown, a man was driving down the highway with his wife when a tree fell down across the highway, landed right on the cab of their pickup truck, and killed them both.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Fox News was founded by one that is heavy into libertarian morality and its individualistic values system rather than collective goals that unit people to put others interest equal or above personal short term interest. Libertarian morality is Me not We and is definitely only based on the anti-altruism of Ayn Rand which cannot coexist with any deity other than self praise and worship at its core. Jesus functioned as the ultimate altruistic being. His followers are not his followers if they put me ahead of we. FOX is libertarian which is the opposite of Christian and the creation of libertarian values is based on the philosophy of Ayn Rand not Christ and she did not write the Bible she wrote "The Virtues of Selfishness". In the Bible Selfishness is not a virtue. Ayn Rand was not a Christian! You can listen to her speak on you tube for your self ... she states flat out her desire to destroy the Christian and any other structure based on deities and she felt the worship of any God because of the altruism any deity demands/creates is evil. America first is not God's will first! It is what it says "Me" first! "America" first! Fox has lots to do with Ayn's morality and nothing to do with Christ. Heaven is choosing being with God. Hell is choosing being without God... it doesn't matter if you are still alive on this planet or not... ask Lucifer. Each moment you choose only yourself or you choose God as a companion each moment. God always comes up as a fear topic in hardship... be his .... or God will punish you like God did them. I have a feeling if in heaven Angels are allowed choices and free we might not be home free just by making it to heaven. So a moment by moment relationship with God at the center might be a good habit to form while we are alive on this planet and hold fast to that relationship as God is the only entity that you can hope to be with in that last second on this planet and your next adventure after that. Eternity is a long time... and that "me first and only" morality can creep back perhaps....ask Lucifer? You tell your friend or child to hold your hand to be safe, you hold out your hand and that person refuses and falls over a Clift. Did you punish that person by making them fall? We have some ability to understand the science and interconnection of life and behaviors on this planet. If we choose to ignore and fail to improve life choices that negatively impact the earth did God send bad weather or destroy the coral reefs? ?
