Issues We Still Care About

SUPPORT SJ RES 19 - a Joint Senate Amendment 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.

Trumpfeld - a show about nothing

What's new for the 2016 election: Our newly expanding collection of humorous anti-Trump images starting with photo1053 and our interactive page of Trump jokes - all in our Humor section. We also added a page called GOP political whores so you can keep track of Republicans and their enablers who formally trashed Trump but are now endorsing and/or supporting him. We will continue to update this collection. And we invite you to help us do that.

We update topplebush.com weekly with new Humor and commentary (newest listed at the top) that will appeal to our veiwers. You might also enjoy our large selection of progressive political humor, our interactive projects plus our free music downloads. --RJ Crane, editor

The Most Extreme Republican Platform in Memory
"It is as though, rather than trying to reconcile Mr. Trump’s heretical views with conservative orthodoxy, the writers of the platform simply opted to go with the most extreme version of every position."

What the plagiarism controversy tells us about Trump's campaign
By Maeve Reston, CNN
"Still, the lack of vetting of Melania Trump's speech was yet another example of the remarkable unevenness of the Trump campaign operation at this critical juncture."

Rudy Giuliani’s Racial Myths

The Promise of Regrexit
By George Soros
"The post-referendum turmoil has highlighted for people in Britain just what they stand to lose by leaving the EU. If this sentiment spreads to the rest of Europe, what seemed like the inevitable disintegration of the EU could be instead creating positive momentum for a stronger and better Europe."

Sorry conservatives, new research from Harvard shows a profound amount of racism by police…not less of it

A Slain Officer’s Example for Us All

140 Silicon Valley leaders pen open letter protesting Donald Trump nomination

Fears of Trump muddling the electoral map are overblown: His Rustbelt weakness reveals a fundamental vulnerability

The sad incurious case of Mike Pence: Why he’s a perfect fit for Donald Trump

Veterans for Trump: The military supports Trump for the same reasons civilians support him
Since no president has made much progress in ending the wars so far, voters have turned to outsider candidates

By Michael T. McPhearson, BillMoyers.com

Donald Trump and Mike Pence: The Political Reality Show
"The suspicions that Mr. Trump stirs among evangelicals made Mr. Pence, who was one of the most socially conservative members of the House in his six terms there, the most strategic pick among the uninspiring politicians on Mr. Trump’s shortlist."

The Iraq lies still matter: Bush’s deceit and the seething distrust Americans have in their leaders

Privatizing extradition: Behind the investigation into the criminal justice system’s underbelly

Mr. Obama’s Dubious Detention Centers
"But these privately run, unlicensed lockups are no place for children. Or mothers."

There will be another Trump: His views alienate some, but the ideas behind them represent every American’s worst fears

Israeli military’s new chief rabbi implied soldiers can rape in war, as government lurches to far-right

“A Trump speech is just a story starring Trump”: Science proves The Donald is a textbook narcissist
"Symptoms include an excessive need for admiration, disregard for others’ feelings, an inability to handle criticism, and a sense of entitlement."

Trump Is Getting Even Trumpier!
By David Brooks
"Does anybody else have the sense that Donald Trump is slipping off the rails?"

Marketer-in-chief: Is Donald Trump only running for president to exploit the business opportunities?
"Again and again, we see Trump standing before the global media cameras knowing full well that he would receive wall-to-wall coverage, and instead of talking about policy, he shamelessly hawks his own Trump products."

Let’s Grow Up, Liberals
"I sympathize with those who believe that Hillary Clinton represents a tired, compromised, laggingly conservative wing of the Democratic Party leadership. They have a point. But she is the nominee and, as Mr. Sanders now concurs, the only alternative to an unspeakable alternative."

America is a wasteland: The U.S. produces a shocking amount of garbage

An enemy of progress: Donald Trump’s world view is stuck in the ’70s
Trump's "law and order" speech was a sign that he's grossly out of touch and has zero compassion for minorities

By Heather Digby Parton

A Lesson for Newt Gingrich: What Shariah Is (and Isn’t)
"Put simply, for believing Muslims, Shariah is the ideal realization of divine justice — a higher law reflecting God’s will...In effect, Mr. Gingrich was proposing to deport all Muslims who consider themselves religious believers."

With Obama, the Personal Is Presidential
By Timothy Egan
"No matter what you think of Obama the executive branch, it’s hard to argue that Obama the human being has been anything less than a model of class and dignity."

U.S.-backed Syrian rebels committing war crimes, torture, abductions; imposing harsh Sharia law: Report
Amnesty International report: Syrian rebel groups "committed serious violations of international humanitarian law"

By Ben Norton

Our Best Defense Against Terrorists
"But whoever struck the blow, whatever its malevolent purpose or toll, the response cannot be to abandon the respect for human rights, equality, reason and tolerance that is the aspiration of all democratic cultures."

Press, politics and popularity: Report shows how the media — yet again — botched the election

Shedding New Light on the Gun Debate
By Lawrence Downes

The West escalates with Russia: Make no mistake, a second Cold War is now official NATO policy
"One, while talk of Cold War II has been common for several years, as of last week it is official policy in Washington and at NATO headquarters in Brussels. This is a grave, reckless step."

“No justice for war crimes victims” 2 years after Gaza war, Amnesty International says
"Israel killed more than 2,250 Palestinians in the war. According to the U.N., two-thirds of the Palestinians killed were civilians — 1,462 people, including more than 550 children."

Iraq War Lies, 13 Years Later
"The report should not be read as an indictment only of Mr. Blair’s foolish decision. Though the United States was not the subject of the inquiry, it was the Bush administration that falsely sold and launched the invasion."

Donald Trump’s Appeal to Rust Belt Workers
"Mr. Trump’s “Make America Great Again” message resonates with many of this region’s workers, whose wages — and hopes — have been tugged downward by the abandoned steel mills and coal mines."

The Big News About What We Already Knew
By Andrew Rosenthal
"The longest-running investigation was conducted by John Chilcot, a retired British civil servant, who took 2.6 million words to report that Prime Minister Tony Blair helped President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney mislead their countries into a war with Iraq in 2003 that was one of the most damaging blunders in history."

‘Star Wars’ and the Fantasy of American Violence
"Whom we’re fighting against or why doesn’t matter as much as the violence itself, our stoic willingness to shed blood, the promise that it might renew the body politic."

Can Old-Style Politics Beat Donald Trump?

Civil liberties be damned: Donald Trump — an enemy of the Constitution
"But it’s a mistake to think that Trump’s authoritarian tendencies are in reaction to current events. They are his nature."

The Purge of Ohio’s Infrequent Voters
"Should voting sporadically in past elections be grounds to remove a voter from the election rolls?"

Republicans can’t stand the guy: More than half of GOP voters wish Trump wasn’t their candidate

We’re Better Than That
By Timothy Egan
"But on this upcoming Independence Day, at a time when Trump’s response to our better angels is to go small, mean and tribal, an American ideal is in peril."

“A uniquely American tragedy“: The staggering myths about gun control
"Across all those high-income nations, the United States accounts for more than 90 percent of the gun deaths of children under fifteen years of age."

U.S. claims drones only killed 116 civilians; experts say it’s way more
"For years, the U.N., Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have criticized the U.S. government’s secrecy in its drone assassination program, and have even implied that the Obama administration may be guilty of war crimes."

The web poisoned our politics: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and America’s digital divide
"It’s impossible to say whether the media introduced a new political predicate or reflected and intensified what was already brewing — probably a little of both."

Did a Fear of Slave Revolts Drive American Independence?
"FOR more than two centuries, we have been reading the Declaration of Independence wrong. Or rather, we’ve been celebrating the Declaration as people in the 19th and 20th centuries have told us we should, but not the Declaration as Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams wrote it."

The Theology of Donald Trump
By Peter Wehner
"This fulsome embrace of Mr. Trump is rather problematic, since he embodies a worldview that is incompatible with Christianity. If you trace that worldview to its source, Christ would not be anywhere in the vicinity."

Don’t Let Iran’s Progress on the Nuclear Deal Go to Waste
"One year later, the nuclear deal between Iran and the major powers is working."

“We have a right to engage in non-violent action”: Christian leaders refuse to be silenced in struggle for Palestinian rights
As Gov. Andrew Cuomo continues his controversial crusade against BDS, church voices defend the movement

By David Palumbo-Liu

Republicans want a do-over: The GOP finds itself trapped in the date from hell

America has had a tyrant like Trump before: We fought a revolution to get rid of him

When Will the Killing Stop?
"Videos of two fatal shootings of African-American men have again documented what appear to be almost casual killing by the police."

It’s “political sleight-of-hand”: For their next trick, Republican magicians will make your federal land disappear

Can Obama Pardon Millions of Immigrants?
"However, President Obama can still act to bring humanity and justice to an immigration system notoriously lacking in both. He can do so by using the power the Constitution grants him — and only him — to pardon individuals for 'offenses against the United States.'”

Don’t be fooled: Trump’s populist economic rhetoric is a fraud
Trump's "populist" economic policies would be downright harmful to the people whose interests he claims to defend

By Conor Lynch

“I don’t even think J. Edgar Hoover ever did this”: DOJ veterans weigh in on FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Clinton email probe
Former DOJ officials disagree on whether James Comey overstepped the bounds of his office with his statement

By Michael Garofalo and Brendan Gauthier

By Linda Greenhouse

Trump’s profitable bigotry: The takeaway from his anti-Semitic tweet — his run is more a grift than a real campaign
Is Trump trying to win? Or is his racist dog-whistling about building an audience for his next endeavor?

By Amanda Marcotte

Death in Black and White
By Michael Eric Dyson
"We, black America, are a nation of nearly 40 million souls inside a nation of more than 320 million people. And I fear now that it is clearer than ever that you, white America, will always struggle to understand us."

THE MATH OF DEMOCRACYanimation by Mark Fiore


"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
