Bernie Sanders Declares It’s ‘Not Acceptable’ To Jail Marijuana Users And Let Big Bank CEOs Walk

Bernie Sanders has been making a lot of waves lately speaking out against police brutality and corruption, but recently the Democratic presidential hopeful came out against the Department of Justice’s weak pledge to supposedly “get serious” about white-collar crime. A lot of this sort of white collar criminal activity on Wall Street is what fueled the 2008 financial crisis. But while the Department of Justice said Thursday that it pledges to crack down on corrupt bankers and investors, Sanders isn’t impressed.

Polls: Americans Are Sick of the War On Terror, War On Drugs … And All of the Other Failed U.S. Wars

Americans Turn Anti-War The American people are now overwhelmingly opposed to more war in Ukraine, Syria, Iran and elsewhere. A new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll shows: Americans in large numbers want the U.S. to reduce its role in world affairs even as a showdown with Russia over Ukraine preoccupies Washington …. In a marked change from past decades, nearly half of those surveyed want the U.S. to be less active on the global stage, with fewer than one-fifth calling for more active engagement—an anti-interventionist current that sweeps across party lines. A Pew poll from December found a majority of Americans – more than ever before in Pew’s 50-year history of polling… Read More
