Issues We Still Care About

SUPPORT SJ RES 19 - a Joint Senate Amendment that is expected to come up for a vote this year [2014] to undo the harm caused by Citizens United. Sign this petition now.

DEMAND OBAMA RELEASE THE EXECUTION MEMOS. Just as the public demanded the release of the Bush Administration's Torture Memos to expose the ludicrous rationale behind their secret torture program, we too must demand to know the legal rationale for a program that allows our president to unilaterally choose to deprive someone of life and liberty - without the victim even being charged with a crime. Sign FireDogLake's petition demanding the Obama administration produce the internal memos and legal justification for their targeted execution program.

SUPPORT THE StopWatching.Us CAMPAIGN. The StopWatching.Us campaign aims to turn grass-roots anger at secret surveillance into political action.

SUPPORT CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT THAT DOESN'T GIVE PERSONHOOD TO CORPORATIONS. We have got to send a constitutional amendment to the states that says simply and straightforwardly what everyone - except five members of the United States Supreme Court - understands: Corporations are not people with equal constitutional rights. Corporations are subject to regulation by the people. Corporations may not make campaign contributions -- the law of the land for the last century. And Congress and states have the power to regulate campaign finances. Sign Sen. Sander's petition.

SUPPORT PFAW'S GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN. People for the American War want to pass an amendment to the U.S. Constitution which would nullify the worst part of the USSC's decision by granting Congress the authority to limit corporate influence in elections. The Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. FEC threatens to tear apart the fabric of our democracy and grant powerful corporations unfettered influence in our political process. Tell congressional leaders to support and pass a constitutional amendment granting Congress the authority limit corporate influence in elections without delay. Sign PFAW's online petition now.

PROSECUTE BUSH CRIMES. Sign the petition at the Center for Constitutional Rights requesting various Bush officials be prosecuted for committing criminal acts. Also sign their letter to Sen. Leahy telling him that criminal prosecutions are necessary. Make sure you do both! Also download their factsheet to share with others [256k] and read the list that includes 182 people and organizations calling for prosecutions of top officals.

Robert Reich: America’s economy is a nightmare of our own making

Russia Impinges on Israeli ‘Right’ to Bomb Iran
By Ray McGovern
"American neocons are in a lather over Russia’s decision to go ahead with the sale of anti-aircraft missiles to Iran. The apparent outrage is that Iran thinks it has a right to protect its citizens from Israel’s right to launch airstrikes into Iran’s territory, as ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern explains."

The Killing of Osama bin Laden
Seymour M. Hersh
The actual text from the London Review of Books - for those who don't want the media to interpret this for them.

Democratic Gov. Jack Markell's odious screed against populism exposes the neoliberal POV Clinton must resist to win


Democrats Embrace Citizens United in Defense of Clinton

A Rare Moment of Grace in American Politics
By E.J. Dionne Jr.

Trade Wars in Congress
"Congress is considering a trade bill that is pitting President Obama against many members of his own party and some Republicans. Though the two sides have major differences, a compromise is still possible and would be good for the American economy."

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is dangerous: Why we must reject her hateful worldview
To endorse Hirsi Ali—as pundits everywhere from Fox News to network news have—insults and mocks a billion Muslims

"What I have seen, particularly after the 9/11 attacks, was a broad rejection, not only of the extremism of Al-Qaeda but also of the authoritarian violence of Western-backed secular dictators — who, by stripping Muslims of their constitutional rights, jailing and torturing them, accomplished only the mass radicalization of young Muslims."

Making It Explicit in Israel
"The government that will be formed this week is the most clearly articulated, narrowest, most right-wing, most religious and most nationalistic government ever assembled in Israel."

Jeb Bush’s Revisionist History of the Iraq War
"Jeb Bush doesn’t seem to have learned anything from his brother’s failures and he is blithely parroting the worst propaganda about the war in Iraq."

The era of (Bill) Clinton liberalism is over. What does that mean for Hillary and the Dems?
Clinton revived the Democrats partly by incorporating GOP critiques on crime, welfare and race. What comes next?


Noam Chomsky undresses Sam Harris: Stop “pretending to have a rational discussion”

America’s assassination industrial complex: How the drug wars of the ’90s became the drone wars of today
Covert warfare used to take place in the shadows. Now it's become a flagship of our foreign policy

"Methods of implementation, including drones, cruise missiles, and Special Operations forces hunter-killer teams, may vary, but the core notion that the path to success lies in directly attacking and taking out your enemy’s leadership has become deeply embedded."

A Nation of Snitches
By Chris Hedges
"A totalitarian state is only as strong as its informants. And the United States has a lot of them."

The terrorist attack that changed America — and it wasn’t 9/11: “The public reaction was even worse”
The Wall Street bombings weren't the only way the year 1920 was eerily reminiscent of 2015, Eric Burns tells Salon

By Elias Isquith

The ludicrous myth of Republican fiscal responsibility: A history lesson for the modern GOP
The GOP loves to insist that Democrats have caused a fiscal crisis. But the real story looks far different

"Over the past three decades, the Republican party has followed a familiar strategy — get elected to executive office by preaching fiscal responsibility, make a complete mess of things fiscally, and then, when a Democrat comes in to clean up the mess, blame them endlessly for not fixing it fast enough."

"I'm From that Hell Called Gaza"
By James Wall
"The injustice in Gaza and the West Bank is, indeed, a curse. It is a curse President Carter knows all too well."

The GOP’s paranoid right-wing renaissance: What Pam Geller’s anti-Islam fear mongering says about American politics
The right has long harbored fantasies about shadowy government conspiracies. Now that paranoia is bigger than ever

Perhaps it's our real divide: Letterman/Colbert's irony and subversion vs. Leno/Fallon's desperate need to be liked

By Brad

Enforcing the Ukraine "Group Think"
By Robert Parry
"It may be fitting that the U.S.-funded Radio Liberty would be the latest media outlet to join in the bashing of an American academic who dares to disagree with U.S. policies on Ukraine, which have included supporting a 2014 coup that ousted the elected president and installing a new regime in which neo-Nazis play a prominent role. After all, Radio Liberty has a history of cuddling up to Nazis."

Retired judge unloads on hypocritical Supreme Court: “They’re talking out of both sides of their mouth”
The Court is all over the map on campaign finance — and U.S. democracy is hurting for it, James Nelson tells Salon

By Elias Isquith

Why not free 4-year college?
By Robert Weiner

What Israel fears with the successes of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement
Amendments in the House and Senate target the BDS movement. It must be doing something right

"Recently, the House and the Senate passed similar amendments to the bill authorizing negotiations for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with Europe that in one stroke of the pen attempt to make legal the Israeli settlements that are recognized as illegal by both the U.N. and international law.  Conversely, the amendments punish companies for adhering to international laws intended to protect against colonization."

The government’s deceptive “transparency” lies: The truth about how it’s keeping its secrets
It's called "declassification review," and it's doublespeak at its most insidious


Obama's Petulant WWII Snub of Russia
By Ray McGovern
"President Barack Obama's decision to join other Western leaders in snubbing Russia's weekend celebration of the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe looks more like pouting than statesmanship, especially in the context of the U.S. mainstream media's recent anti-historical effort to downplay Russia's crucial role in defeating Nazism."

Illegitimate election
A key source for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. responds to criticism of his analysis of the 2004 election

Anatomy of a racist revolution: How the GOP was hijacked by small-state bigotry
In some ways, it's a tale as old as America: state vs. federal power. But 50 years ago, something sinister happened


Hillary Clinton Takes the Lead on Immigration
"With her speech on immigration in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Hillary Rodham Clinton took a large step forward, up front and to the left of President Obama. That is a good place to be for a presidential candidate who proposes to get the stalled debate moving again, and to bring hope to the millions living here outside the law."

The Middle East is America’s collateral damage: The brutal truth about America’s drone wars
Obama's apology for the death of an American aid worker lays bare his callous indifference toward Muslim life

" If you are an innocent American or Western civilian and a drone takes you out, you count.  If you are an innocent Pakistani, Afghan, or Yemeni, you don’t."

“The buck stops nowhere”: Meet the corrupt new elite running (and ruining) our economy
"Unaccountable" author Janine Wedel takes on Larry Summers, Citigroup and the sins of the Clinton administration


Jeb Bush’s terrifying W. strategy: How he’s sucking up to extremist billionaires—with the help of the worst president ever

70 years after the end of WWII, the West is unwilling to celebrate the holiday in Russia

The New York Times does its government’s bidding: Here’s what you’re not being told about U.S. troops in Ukraine

The Illegal Phone-Data Sweeps
"There is a lot to praise in the powerful ruling issued by a three-judge federal appeals panel in New York on Thursday, which held that the government’s vast, continuing and, until recently, secret sweep of Americans’ phone records is illegal."

America is about to make a horrible mistake all over again
In the '90s, NAFTA was full of grand promises that never came true. Now we're hearing those same promises again


Even W was smarter than these clowns: The surprising issue Bush got right, but today’s wingnuts can’t comprehend
Bush and the GOP business wing got the politics of a minimum wage hike right in 2007. It's not 2007 anymore


Hillary Clinton and the Super Trough
"Just weeks after her ringing call to 'get unaccountable money' out of politics, Hillary Rodham Clinton is reversing course and joining the 'super PAC' sweepstakes for unlimited donations from big check writers.

It’s Not a ‘Stream’ of Consciousness
"While there is no disputing the aptness of this metaphor in capturing our subjective experience of the world, recent research has shown that the 'stream' of consciousness is, in fact, an illusion. We actually perceive the world in rhythmic pulses rather than as a continuous flow."

Fringe Festival
By Timothy Egan
"Last election cycle, the Republican presidential field was a clown car, holding the thrice-married Newt Gingrich lecturing about values, the pizza magnate Herman Cain fending off sexual harassment claims, and Michele Bachmann confusing John Wayne with a serial killer. That was just the front seat. This time around it’s a clown bus, with as many as 17 Republicans expected to compete for the nomination."

Beyond the Iran Nuclear Deal
"President Obama’s meeting with Arab leaders this week is an opportunity to reassure the deeply skeptical Gulf states that America’s engagement and probable nuclear deal with Iran is not a threat but an opportunity for regional stability."

This is how the right wing dies: The GOP has rigged the game for the rich, again

Obama administration moves to bolster police in Baltimore
By Jerry White

The 23 Count Indictment of the TPP
By Joe Firestone, Ph.D
"Any one of these, would, by itself be sufficient for any representative of the people, Senator or Congressperson, to vote to kill it."

How Super PACs Can Run Campaigns

Make the Rich Panic
By Chris Hedges
"If you want change you can believe in, destroy the system. And changing the system does not mean collaborating with it as Bernie Sanders is doing by playing by the cooked rules of the Democratic Party. Profound social and political transformation is acknowledged in legislatures and courts but never initiated there. Radical change always comes from below.

The swaggering idiot returns: George W. Bush emerges from artistic exile to rehab his disastrous legacy
George W. Bush is back, and he's concerned that the foreign policy catastrophes he helped create aren't being fixed


Robert Reich: Americans are utterly powerless
The former secretary of labor examines how we let our biggest corporations get away with whatever they please
"The companies we work for, the businesses we buy from, and the political system we participate in all seem to have grown less accountable."

Junk Science at the F.B.I.
"Mr. Tribble’s case — along with the exoneration of two other men who served decades in prison based on faulty hair-sample analysis — spurred the F.B.I. to conduct a sweeping post-conviction review of 2,500 cases in which its hair-sample lab reported a match."

By Jamie Raskin

Trans Pacific Trickle-Down Economics
By Robert Reich
"By now we should know that when big corporations, Wall Street, and the wealthy get special goodies, the rest of us get shafted."

Roger Waters to Robbie Williams: “Your decision to play in Tel Aviv gives succor to Netanyahu and his regime, and endorses their deadly racist policies”

"To me, the bottom line is this: If we move on now without fully documenting what occurred, without acknowledging the betrayal of our values, and without determining whether or not any laws have been broken, we cannot help but validate all that has gone on before. If we look at the Bush record and conclude that the book should simply be closed, we will be tacitly approving both the documented abuses and the additional misdeeds we will have chosen to leave uncovered." --Rep.John Conyers Chair of House Judiciary Committe, D-MI, January 3 1, 2009, Huffingtonpost.com
