Stephan: This is yet another report on attempted corruption by corporations controlled by UBer-rich individuals. What can you do about this? Simple. Don't shop at Home Depot. Change your phone from AT&T, and don't fly on Delta. And, of course, don't do business with anything touched by Koch Industries.

Some of the best-known corporations in the US, including AT&T, Boeing, Delta Air Lines and the Home Depot, collectively poured more than $8m into supporting election deniers running for US House and Senate seats in this month’s midterm elections.

A study by the non-partisan government watchdog organization Accountable.US, based on the latest filings to the Federal Election Commission, reveals the extent to which big corporations were prepared to back Republican nominees despite their open peddling of false claims undermining confidence in democracy. Though many were ultimately unsuccessful in their election bids, the candidates included several prominent advocates of Donald Trump’s lie that the 2020 presidential election had been stolen from him.

At the top of the list of 20 corporations backing election deniers through their political action committees (Pacs) is a familiar name in the world of rightwing agitating – Koch Industries. According to the Accountable.US review, [...]

Biden Voices Support For Assault Weapons Ban During Lame-Duck Congress

Sara Boboltz,  Staff Writer  -  HuffPost

Stephan: This is good news. I doubt it will be successful immediately because few if any Republicans in either house of Congress, and not all Democrats will vote for such a weapons ban. But it starts the conversation and will, hopefully, stimulate a response from millions of American voters, and that wave of collective intention will scare Congress members into action fearing they might lose their seats

President Joe Biden said Thursday that he was open to a last-ditch effort to ban assault-style weapons as the 117th Congress winds down and Republicans prepare to take over control of the House in January.

With Democrats controlling both chambers of Congress for just a few more weeks, Biden said he would “start counting votes� to see how much support there might be for such legislation.

“I’m going to try to get rid of assault weapons,� he told reporters during a Thanksgiving Day visit to Nantucket Island off the coast of Massachusetts.

So much mass death: The insurgency we refuse to see

John Stoehr,  Staff Writer  -  AlterNet

Stephan: I think this essay raises very relevant reports about what is going on with all these mass shootings. It is time to end the American obsessive gun psychosis and the politics it has produced.

There was another mass shooting last night, this one in a Chesapeake Bay-area Walmart. Using a pistol, the gunman shot dead six people, wounded five more, then killed himself. Police say the suspect was an employee at the store. They say the shooting began in a break room.

We don’t know the shooter’s identity yet, but we do know last night marked the seventh mass shooting in seven days, according to the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit group that tracks and makes available information on gun-related violence. Investigators are still determining a motive for the violence. Honestly, it doesn’t matter.

The gunman’s motive doesn’t matter because whatever it is in detail, the urge to murder expressed itself from inside a political context that’s already highly tolerant of spectacular rates of political violence. The Gun Violence Archive reports an estimated 600 gun-related incidents of mass death so far this year. That’s nearly two daily.

Whether, over 20 years, the bodies piled skyward came from criminals shattering [...]


Joe Gorga Reveals What He Really Thinks of Daughter Antonia’s Boyfriend

Saturday, 26 November 2022 05:32

Joe Gorga opened up about how he feels about his teen daughter’s boyfriend.

The husband of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Melissa Gorga is known to be a protective dad, so it’s no wonder that his only daughter’s first beau had to earn his approval.

The Gorgas share three children together: daughter Antonia, and sons Gino and Joey, according to Us Weekly. Antonia is 17 years old, a cheerleader, and a high school senior.

While on his wife’s “On Display” podcast earlier this year, Gorga talked about how his little girl was growing up. “She’s beautiful, she’s stunning, I love her more and more as she gets older,” he said in August 2022. “She’s different, maturing. She glows now, she’s different.”


Joe Gorga Revealed What He Thinks of Antonia’s Boyfriend

In June 2022, Antonia attended her junior prom. In photos posted by BravoTV.com, the teen was escorted by a tall young man. While it’s unclear if her junior prom date was her boyfriend or just a friend, Antonia does have a boyfriend now.

In a November 2022 interview with the “Chicks in the Office” podcast, Joe Gorga opened up about what he thinks about his 17-year-old daughter’s boyfriend. And surprisingly, the protective dad likes him.

“He’s very nice,” Gorga said of Antonia’s guy. “He’s actually a tall kid, like 6’4″ or something, plays football, nice kid.”

“For me, as a dad, you look at [him] in the eyes like, ‘You son of a b***. What are you thinking?’” Gorga said of his first sit-down with Antonia’s suitor. “I’m sitting there looking at him like and he’s trying to say, ‘Mr. Gorga, how are you?’ Anyway, I’m good, you know. It takes a minute because you know. you’re like, ‘Are you touching my daughter?’”

“People [ask if I’m] old school,” he added. “Now I’m starting to say, ‘OK, you want him to come over, he can come over.’”

Gorga said he does not let his daughter’s boyfriend spend the night at their house.

“If we go to the shore house and he wants to sleep over, he can sleep on the couch,” Gorga said. “They do go in a basement together…I got cameras down there, I have cameras not because of this but to protect.”

“Honestly I don’t look, okay?” he said of the cameras.


Melissa Gorga Previously Said Her Husband Doesn’t ‘Get’ Their Daughter’s Dating

Gorga has come a long way since first broaching the dating subject with his daughter. When Antonia was a sophomore in high school and began dating, her father didn’t know what to make of it.

“He just doesn’t get it,” Melissa told Us Weekly at the time. “He just looks at us all cross-eyed, like, every time we talk about anything with Antonia and a boy. The fact that she’s a sophomore. Hello? This is when it happens and the sex talk happens. It’s just a real-life thing. He gasped for air, he can’t even say the word. It’s so ridiculous.”

The RHONJ star said she told her husband that she doesn’t “know what generation or world” he is living in but that he needs to “bring it together here.”

Pharma Companies Abuse the Patent System, and Patients Pay the Price

Saturday, 26 November 2022 05:32

Emily Hutto,  Associate Video Producer  -  MedPage Today

Stephan: Big Pharma is one of the most corrupt parts of the illness profit system that passes for healthcare in the United States. You and I fund the development of drugs, then pay obscene overcharges to get access to them. This interview presents an excellent explanation of the current situation, and why it must change.

In this video, Jeremy Faust, MD, editor-in-chief of MedPage Today, discusses the U.S. patent system with Priti Krishtel, JD. Krishtel is the co-founder of I-MAK, a non-profit focused on building a more just and equitable medicines system in the U.S.

Krishtel reveals how the patent system rewards pharmaceutical companies that try to prevent competition and keep prescription drug prices artificially high.

The following is a transcript of their remarks:

Faust: Hello, this is Jeremy Faust, medical editor-in-chief of MedPage Today. Thank you for joining us.

DWTS Champ ‘Unrecognizable’ 12 Years After Mirrorball Win: PHOTOS
Publisher:  Heavy.com
Saturday, 26 November 2022 05:29

A “Dancing with the Stars” champion sparked a big reaction when she posted photos of her new look.

In 2010, Jennifer Grey made history as the oldest female celebrity to win the “Dancing With the Stars” competition. She was 50 years old at the time and suffering from a ruptured disc in her lower back as she danced her final routine with partner Derek Hough for the mirrorball trophy, per ABC News.

Fast forward a dozen years, and Grey looks very different.

Here’s what you need to know:


Jennifer Grey Stunned Fans in Photos Posted in November 2022

Longtime fans remember Jennifer Grey from the movie “Dirty Dancing,” where she had curly, shoulder-length hair and a unique nose. By the time she joined DWTS, she’d had multiple nose jobs, so she did look different than fans remembered her.

But in photos posted on Instagram in November 2022, any trace of the OG Grey was gone. In the pics shared to her social media page, the actress donned heavily teased, bleached blonde hair and heavy eye makeup – for a movie role.

Grey captioned the pic to tell fans to call her “Gwen.” The 62-year-old actress shared another photo from the movie shoot and told fans, “Up to no good in Montreal.”

Fans reacted to Grey’s wild look in the comment section.

“Incredible transformation. Wow,” wrote pro dancer Benji Schwimmer.

“Unrecognizable,” another follower added. “That cant be you,” another wrote to Grey. “Holy transformation I didn’t even recognize you,” another chimed in.

According to Deadline, Grey was made up to play cult leader Gwen Shamblin in an upcoming Lifetime movie titled “Gwen Shamblin: Starving for Salvation.”

Shamblin was the founder of the controversial Remnant Fellowship Church, which promoted a Christian-based Weigh Down Workshop diet program, per The Daily Beast. She died in 2021.

In her photos,  Grey nailed the look of the controversial cult leader, although her hair could have been even “crazier,” some commenters noted.


This Is Not the First Time Jennifer Grey Was Unrecognizable

Grey knows a thing or two about being unrecognizable. In the 1990s, she underwent two rhinoplasty surgeries that changed her face so much fans didn’t know who she was.

In an interview with The New York Times, Grey revealed that the change was so drastic that it impacted her ability to get acting jobs.  “Overnight I lose my identity and my career,” she said.

In 1999, she decided to poke fun at her “unrecognizable” persona on the sitcom “It’s Like….You Know.”  Grey played herself on the comedy series, but the running joke was that no one recognized her from her “Dirty Dancing” heyday.

“I decided to make fun of this, to make my fiasco become my reality,” she told The Washington Post at the time. “After all, it’s not cancer, and it’s absurd that just a nose job could wreak such havoc.”

Grey also lost her signature hair look.  In 2022, she told E! News that she experienced hair thinning during the COVID pandemic. ‘I always had the greatest hair,” she said of her curls. “And I actually took it for granted because I thought, ‘At least I got this hair for the rest of my life.’ I assumed it wouldn’t change.”
