Private Republican campaign fund-raising groups are concealing their donors from the public because the GOP does not trust American voters to handle the information. Republican operatives want to shield voters from knowing who is actually paying for GOP attack ads. The GOP fears the consequences if Americans know the truth – exactly which giant corporations and Wall Street banksters are funding vicious screeds against Democrats because those covert donors believe Republicans will deliver for big business.

It’s been a bad week for Pope Benedict. From Italy to Belgium to Washington DC, courts everywhere seem to be taking a hard look at some of the activities of the Catholic church, and they’re not liking what they’re seeing. Worst of all, from Benedict’s point of view, is that the events of the last eight days are but a foretaste of the weeks to come.

Until this week, CEOs, union-busters, and conservative Republicans have actively opposed the Employee Free Choice Act, mainly because of a provision they call “card check.” But card check provides exactly what they’ve been saying they want since the National Mediation Board (NMB) decided Monday to permit airline and railroad workers to obtain collective bargaining rights through majority-rule elections. The anti-worker-rights groups contend election rights enjoyed by everyone else in a democracy should be denied workers. Instead, they want collective bargaining determinations made by the majority of all of those qualified to participate – a supermajority. So, clearly, since they’re so upset by the NMB decision to stop requiring supermajority for airline and railroad workers, they’d be happy if Congress now intervened and instituted it for all workers by passing the Employee Free Choice Act.

Decisions by the court that concern our rights as individuals will remain subject to any interpretation the court chooses, no matter how completely unjust it is, until the court can be returned to balance. The prospect of that happening soon is bleak, and there are big troubles ahead for our system of justice.

This week in federal court, a legal odd couple will join forces to overturn California’s Proposition 8 because it violates the U.S. Constitution. Cue the right-wing media’s hysteria and homophobia.
