G.O.P. Campaigns Grow More Dependent on ‘Super PAC’ Aid

The spending reports revealed the breadth and power of super PACs as the campaign hits a critical and perhaps decisive period, with outside groups poised to pick up a growing share of political spending during the costly primary battle that lies ahead.


Maxine Waters is Fired UP!

These are legislator­s (House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.)) who are destroying this country rather than bringing us together, creating jobs, making sure we have a good tax policy, bringing our jobs from back offshore, incentiviz­ing those who keep their jobs here. They are bringing down this country, destroying this country, because they can." Maxine Waters 2012


If your house is in foreclosure do not move out. Very important!

If your house is up for foreclosure make the people who say that you owe them money, prove legally with the right paperwork in order, that you actually legally owe them money. Do not move out until you have a lawyer examine the paperwork for signatures and correct dates etc. More than likely you do not owe these people money since they do not own the loan they say they own. In other words they are fraudulently making a claim to your property. Do not move out!

Audit Uncovers Extensive Flaws in Foreclosures


Anecdotal evidence indicating foreclosure abuse has been plentiful since the mortgage boom turned to bust in 2008. But the detailed and comprehensive nature of the San Francisco findings suggest how pervasive foreclosure irregularities may be across the nation.

Citizens United Part II: Montana Supreme Court Collides With U.S. Supreme Court

The fate of Montana's century-old ban on corporate political spending is now in the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court, setting up a possible sequel to the hotly contested Citizens United decision handed down two years ago.


Most Super PAC Money went to the Republicans

Most of the money disclosed this week went to independent groups supporting Republicans, giving them an enormous money advantage over similar Democratic groups in the first phase of the 2012 election cycle. Such donations were made possible by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision in 2010 and subsequent court rulings, which opened the door to unlimited corporate and union contributions to political committees and made it possible to pool that money with unlimited contributions from wealthy individuals.


The Democratic Party and its allies better find a way to keep up with this Republican Tidal Wave about to sweep over them. The Super PACs offer the best way to smear a politician without a candidate getting his own hands dirty. Look at Mitt Romney's 2012 primary wins in Iowa and Florida for an example.
