    Inspired by the climate activism of a Swedish teenager, Jane Fonda says she’s returning to civil disobedience nearly a half-century after she was last arrested at a protest. Fonda, known for her opposition to the Vietnam War, was one of 17 climate protesters arrested Friday at the U.S. Capitol on charges of unlawful demonstration by what she called “extremely nice and professional” police. Fellow actor Sam Waterston was also in the group, which included many older demonstrators. Now 81, Fonda said she plans to get arrested every Friday to advocate for urgent reduction in the use of fossil fuels. She...

    Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders introduced a plan on Monday that would reverse President Donald Trump’s tax cuts for businesses and return the corporate tax rate to 35% from its current 21%. The Corporate Accountability and Democracy Plan would also eliminate many of the tax breaks and loopholes in the tax code and do away with off-shore tax havens. Other highlights: “Democratize Corporate Boards. Under this plan, 45% of the board of directors in any large corporation with at least $100 million in annual revenue, corporations with at least $100 million in balance sheet total, and all publicly traded companies will...

Fonda told the newspaper she plans to spend about four months in Washington for a series of sit-ins and rallies – after getting an OK from Netflix to take time off from her series “Grace and Frankie” with Lily Tomlin.

    Bernie Sanders plans to hit the ground running, claiming in the first interview since his heart attack that he 'misspoke' when he was 'fatigued' from so many campaign rallies. The 78-year-old candidate told NBC News on Wednesday that he will continue to run a 'vigorous campaign.' 'I misspoke the other day. I said a word I should not have said and media drives me a little bit nuts to make a big deal about it,' Sanders said during his interview where he was joined by his wife, Jane Sanders. 'We're going to get back into the groove of a very...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is promoting a new package of left-wing economic policies, including national rent control and expanding welfare to illegal immigrants across the country, as part of a massive new proposal aiming to achieve a “just society.” The freshman lawmaker, who champions the multi-trillion-dollar Green New Deal proposal to combat economic inequality and climate change, has now proposed a package of bills aimed at solving perceived economic injustice. “A just society provides a living wage, safe working conditions, and healthcare. A just society acknowledges the value of immigrants to our communities. A just society guarantees safe, comfortable, and...

    Mayor continues to draw small crowds New York City mayor Bill de Blasio drew a small crowd in Iowa this weekend while pitching his presidential campaign: just 15 people, according to the New York Post. De Blasio was one of nearly two dozen candidates who visited Iowa this weekend to attend the Iowa State Fair. At an event hosted by Iowa state senator Rob Hogg (D.), de Blasio pitched himself with the slogan, "working people first." "Here's the bottom line: We have a country that's favored the 1 percent now for literally 40 years," he said. "The rich have gotten...

    Insurgent Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg acknowledged at the Fox News town hall in Claremont, New Hampshire Sunday evening that he needs to do more to appeal to "black and brown" voters, even as he confidently parried a series of policy questions -- and, on several occasions, went directly after President Trump. Buttigieg argued that minority voters are "skeptical of people who seem to come out of nowhere," after moderator Chris Wallace noted that he was polling at one-percent support among nonwhite primary voters according to a recent Fox News poll. On fiscal policy, Buttigieg pushed for four distinct tax...

    For several years now, polls by organisations like the Lowy Institute have been telling us that Australians aren’t particularly impressed by our democracy. This seems a startling revelation. But it shouldn’t be. With five prime ministers in five years, Australia’s democracy hasn’t exactly been stable or functional of late. Yet there’s more to Australians’ dissatisfaction with their democratic system than Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott. In a 2014 Australian parliamentary lecture, Lowy polling director Alex Oliver advanced other theories said to explain Australians’ ambivalence about democratic politics. Most had to do with the state of our democracy or society. But...

    .............The broad outlines of Bernie’s long-running infatuation with all things Soviet Russian are available to diligent researchers. We know Bernie went to Moscow for his honeymoon. This is sort of passed over and laughed off by his supporters, but it should not be. It that era it was considered a signature event in the life of a dedicated American communist. Something many American communists looked forward to as a culmination of their connections with the movement. This was frequently accompanies by other highly symbolic gestures, like getting married in a Red Dress, or having the wedding ceremony itself in the...

    Mayor de Blasio took his presidential ambitions to Iowa on Saturday night, where he’s deploying a head-scratcher campaign strategy: trash talking Hillary Clinton and praising President Trump - and all the while still not declaring his candidacy. Only 25 Sioux City residents braved a blizzard to hear Hizzoner insist he’d do a better job than Clinton at leading Democrats. Clinton spent too much time trashing her Republican opponent in 2016, the mayor complained. “We’re not going to win by talking about Donald Trump,” the mayor said inside a cavernous bar.local bar as a blizzard raged outside. “I have deep respect...
