German Spies’ Sex for Secrets Replaced by Free Love

The location of a former training camp where Stasi operatives were taught to retrieve secrets through sex now houses a free-love commune; filibuster reform was blocked and now, for the first time in history, a secretary of defense nomination has been filibustered; meanwhile, Al-Jazeera has been accused of developing a political agenda since the Arab Spring. These discoveries and more after the jump.

Senate Republicans Take a Stand Against the Public Interest

It is bizarre that Chuck Hagel, a war hero with a long record of sensible views on the deployment of military power, gets blocked as the president’s nominee to run the Pentagon, while Jack Lew, steeped in Wall Street greed, sails through as Treasury secretary.

Nurse Your Medicare—Obama’s Coming for It

The only reason President Obama is interested in health care reform is to please big business; Aaron Swartz memorials have become the setting of discussions about transforming the U.S. justice system; meanwhile, Obama’s pick for secretary of the Treasury, Jack Lew, is no stranger to the Cayman Islands. These discoveries and more after the jump.

‘Left, Right & Center’: Drones and the Saturday Mail Shocker

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss the war over drones that has erupted during confirmation hearings for John Brennan as CIA director.

Republicans: Rebranding vs. Rethinking

Rebranding is trendy in the Republican Party. Rep. Eric Cantor gave a major speech Tuesday to advance the effort. Gov. Bobby Jindal wants the GOP to stop being the “stupid party.” Karl Rove is setting up a PAC (it’s what he does these days) to defeat right-wing crazies who cost the party Senate seats.

GOP’s Foreign Policy Unfit for a World Power

Chuck Hagel’s confirmation hearings to become secretary of defense have raised questions about the Republican Party’s ability to conduct U.S. foreign policy worthy of a major international player; Hillary Clinton may be responsible for the decline in the use of “Hillary” as a baby name; meanwhile, although President Obama is quite adept at Internet use, his tendency toward waging a “cyber war” is a deficient approach to online security. These discoveries and more after the jump.

Drama Over Including Gays in Immigration Reform

Though President Obama is trying to find a place for gay binational couples in his immigration reform plan, Republicans such as Sen. Lindsey Graham just won’t have it; as a tribute to the late Aaron Swartz, MIT should make academic articles free to the public; meanwhile, new studies show that urbanites have developed neural responses that keep them constantly on the lookout for danger. These discoveries and more after the jump.

GOP Governors Would Help the Rich Pick Your Pockets

A slew of Republican governors are taking advantage of an “improving economy and a gradual rebound in revenues” to aggressively push for cuts to personal and corporate income taxes, and propose to make up the difference by raising sales taxes.
