The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Bruce Rauner made frightening threats against a female CEO at one of his companies.
Rauner fired the CEO of an outsourcing company owned by his firm -- because she wasn't laying off enough workers.
She later testified in a sworn deposition that when she challenged the firing, Rauner made threats against her, saying “If you go legal on us, we’ll hurt you and your family.”
According to the complaint, Rauner also bragged to a board member that “She will never get another job anywhere, ever. I will bankrupt her with legal fees.”
This story is still unfolding, but it's a chilling portrait of an out-of-touch billionaire bullying people to get his way.
Bruce Rauner says he wants to run Illinois like a business, but if this is what it was like at his businesses when things went wrong, that's unacceptable.
We have to stop him, plain and simple. And we have 24 days to do it.

Alicia Keys - We Are Here

War and violence is wrong. Lies about why our Nation goes to War is wrong. Murdering innocents in the name of Religious beliefs is wrong. (Christianity, Islam etc...) Violence in any Nation is wrong. In short violence in any name is WRONG!

The day I wrote this song, I was sitting in a circle of people of all ages and we were asked, “Why are you here.” Why am I here?? This really hit me on a deep level. I realized no one had ever asked me that question before.
As I prepare give birth to a new child, I can't help and think about the world I'm bringing my baby into. No matter where we come from, when we see the state of the world today, we can all feel the growing frustration and desire to make a difference. And we all have a voice - we just need to know how to make it heard.
I have a vision that I believe is more than a dream, that I know can be our reality.
I believe in an empowered world community built on the true meaning of equality – where we are all considered one people, regardless of race, religion, gender, zip code, belief system or sexual orientation.
I believe all of our voices should be heard, so that our representation reflects our population. We need our leadership to reflect an equal balance of the gifts that both men and women have to offer.
I believe in a world where every child born receives a quality education – where their unique gifts are nurtured so that they may be a beneficial presence in this world.
I believe in mutual respect and cooperation among all peoples and all nations. It is time to end all forms of racial injustice for our black brothers and sisters and all people of color.
I believe in an end to the prison industrial complex in America and a renewed justice system that is based on fairness and truth.
I believe in universal global health care based on Integrative Medicine, so that our bodies are acknowledged and treated as one system, and we can help control the spread of diseases like AIDS, Malaria, TB and Ebola.
I believe we have an ability to end poverty, oppression, and hopelessness that often breeds despair, terror, and violence.
I believe in common sense gun laws that serve to protect children and families and society from unnecessary violence.
I believe in Peace & Love & Unity.
I believe that this vision can be a reality.
And, it’s not about me. It’s about WE.
Together we can give birth to a kinder and more peaceful world for ALL children.
Our souls were brought together so that we can love each other sister, brother. We Are Here. We are here for all of us. That's why #WeAreHere.
Sent with Light,
Alicia Keys

Pakistani Education Activist Malala Yousafzai Becomes Youngest Winner of...


 Tea Party Congressman Steve Pearce has taken the attacks to a whole new level, making false allegations about Rocky's background. It's a page right out of Karl Rove's playbook.

He might not want to talk about the issues, but we will. When we elect Rock in November, you can count on her to balance the budget, protect Social Security and Medicare, and pass comprehensive immigration reform.
