Supreme Court Orders Disclosure For Dark Money, As New Report Unveils Some Donors

quote [ The court set aside an order issued by Chief Justice John Roberts on Saturday. The social welfare group Crossroads GPS, a defendant in the lawsuit, had fought to stall disclosure while it prepares to appeal. It failed in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and then appealed to the Supreme Court.

Groups such as the NRA and Chamber of Commerce must disclose who paid for campaign ads they run this fall. A new report says such groups pumped about $600 million into elections between 2010 and 2016. ]

Some rare good news coming from the SCOTUS. Thumb-boy is Roberts; hopefully that smug grin has temporarily disappeared.

What A Surprise. Eleven Old White Guys Will Be Christine Blasey Ford's Interrogators.

quote [ Ford will face questions from the 11 Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, all of them men, with an average age of 62. (The chairman, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the second-oldest sitting senator, is 85.) In the committee?s 202-year history, it has not had a single Republican woman. Four of the 10 Democrats are women, including ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, who is a few months older than Grassley. The committee has never been chaired by a woman. ]

And of course they are refusing to allow other witnesses. They want to turn it into a he said/she said, where they can pretend that they listened to a woman before just believing the man and pencil whipping it through anyhow.

And another lie disproven...again.

quote [ Minimum wage hikes in six cities: big impact on pay, none on jobs ]

Let me repeat...Raising the Minimum Wage has never been bad for business, never been bad for the government and has never caused job mater what lies you have been told.

It has pulled people out of poverty, raised tax income for cities states and the federal government and increased local business where ever it has been done
