300 Families Gave Half of Election Money

GOP candidatesThey are overwhelmingly white, rich, older and male, in a nation that is being remade by the young, by women, and by black and brown voters. Across a sprawling country, they reside in an archipelago of wealth, exclusive neighborhoods dotting a handful of cities and towns. And in an economy that has minted billionaires in a dizzying array of industries, most made their fortunes in just two: finance and energy.

Now they are deploying their vast wealth in the political arena, providing almost half of all the seed money raised to support Democratic and Republican presidential candidates. Just 158 families, along with companies they own or control, contributed $176 million in the first phase of the campaign, according to a New York Times investigation. Not since before Watergate have so few people and businesses provided so much early money in a campaign, most of it through channels legalized by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision five years ago.


Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richards blasts GOP 'total lack of civility'

Cecile RichardCecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, says she was "stunned by the total lack of civility and use of raw power" by Republican members of Congress during last week's House Oversight and Government Reform hearing on her organization's federal funding,

Richards fired back at Congress and Republicans in general in a Guardian article published Thursday, warning that the Supreme Court's 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade is "on the ballot" for next year's presidential election.


Clinton opposes Pacific trade deal in major break with Obama

ClintonHillary Rodham Clinton declared her opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade accord on Wednesday, marking her most significant break with President Barack Obama and the policies she once promoted as his chief diplomat.

"I think there are still a lot of unanswered questions," she said of the sweeping trade deal in an interview with PBS' "Newshour." "As of today, I am not in favor of what I have learned about it."


Video boosted by Carly Fiorina looks like miscarriage not abortion – experts

Carly Fiorina video lieThe Guardian is not publishing the videos in question, or any direct links to them, but it did ask multiple medical experts to review the footage over the course of the past week because Fiorina’s claims about the video have continued to circulate in the media.

They said they believe there are definitive signs that show the event is a miscarriage that occurred in a hospital, not an abortion clinic.

“It’s a premature delivery, a miscarriage,” Jennifer Gunter, an obstetrician-gynecologist based in San Francisco, told the Guardian.


Carly Fiorina’s Mystery Foundation

Carly FiorinaThe Fiorina Foundation is run by an organization that has distributed funds to Planned Parenthood. Oh, and the Fiorina Foundation doesn’t appear to exist.

Carly Fiorina is so opposed to Planned Parenthood, which she believes is “pushing women into late-term abortions so they can more successfully harvest body parts,” that she would shut the government down in order to prevent it from receiving any federal funding. But she doesn’t oppose Planned Parenthood enough, it seems, to care if the organization that controls the Fiorina Foundation, her mysterious charity outfit, also distributes funds to the group—nearly half a million dollars since 2011.
