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.

Visit our Topplebush StorePlease visit our Bush Store to find political novelties and collectibles. Many of our products now sell with free shipping!


New articles added from the past week below discuss: Organizing an end to the U.S. empire, why there is no immigration "crisis", Sen. Leahy's Senate bill to curb NSA spying and data collection - much better but not perfect, how Obama and Democrats sold out their values and souls under the guise of "centrism", the murderous thugs called Israel and their US enablers in Congress and the media - Yes, they all fear Israel more than they fear losing their own souls, the rush to judgment on Russia and what this really says about our politics, why it might become easier to criticize Israel w/o losing your job or fearing for your life now that technology can expose Israel's war crimes and genocide for all to see and judge, Obama's big lie about Gaza, plus lots more in Sounding Off. You might also ienjoy our large selection of progressive political humor, our interactive projects plus our free music downloads. --RJ Crane, editor

“A much larger and more dangerous movement”: Right-wing militias thrive post-Bundy — and the media won’t talk about it
Cliven Bundy wasn't a one-off. New report shows far-right militias are growing, and more fear of home-grown terror

By PAUL ROSENBERG

How to survive an American century: From JFK to the apocalypse
Seventy years of lessons on the contradictions and dangers of global superpower-dom

By TOM ENGELHARDT

You won’t believe how many Americans accept medical conspiracy theories
A surprising number of Americans are buying into junk science

By CLIFF WEATHERS
"Almost half of adults in the U.S. believe in at least one medical conspiracy theory, according to a report by the University of Chicago."

Rise of the Christian left: Why the religious right’s moment may be ending
From Pope Francis to a generation with new priorities, the finest Christian traditions are being reinvigorated

By ELIZABETH STOKER BRUENIG

Why Opposing the Israel Lobby Is No Longer Political Suicide
Our movement isn’t strong enough yet to end US enabling of the carnage in Gaza—but the shift in public discourse is a crucial first step.

By Phyllis Bennis
"For those of us who’ve been working on changing US policy in the Middle East for decades, the bad news is in front of us every day: that policy hasn’t changed, and billions of dollars in aid money and uncritical political, diplomatic and military support for Israel remains constant."

An Ominous Health Care Ruling
By THE NYT EDITORIAL BOARD
"Millions of low- and moderate-income people who signed up for health insurance with the help of federal tax-credit subsidies could find themselves without coverage or facing big premium bills if a destructive decision handed down by a federal appeals court in Washington on Tuesday is not reversed."

GOP’s highway robbery: How self-styled patriots choke future growth, ensure American decline
Reagan knew the importance of highways and infrastructure. Why is today's GOP determined to destroy it?

By PAUL ROSENBERG
"America has been under-investing in its infrastructure for decades."

End Partisan Primaries, Save America
Charles Schumer: Adopt the Open Primary

By CHARLES E. SCHUMER
"Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s."

Milking the Money Machine
By Thomas B. Edsall
"No matter how used to all this we’ve all become, the numbers are striking. The amount of money flowing into federal campaigns — for Congress and the presidency — has been growing rapidly, doubling from $3.1 billion in 2000 to $6.3 billion in 2012."

Netanyahu’s Bankrupt Strategy
By demonizing the Palestinian leadership, the Israeli prime minister raised expectations for a decisive victory and opened the door for attacks from the right.

By Noam Sheizaf
"The denial of funds, along with the closing of the tunnels from Egypt to Gaza by the new regime in Cairo, which is overtly hostile to Hamas, has caused a political and economic crisis in the Strip, and thus left Hamas—whose main political currency is its image of “resistance”—with little reason to avoid escalation."

66 Percent of Americans Now Live in a Constitution-Free Zone
Thanks to the militarization and expansion of the “border” region, 197 million Americans now live within the jurisdiction of US Customs and Border Patrol.

By Todd Miller
"In these vast domains, Homeland Security authorities can institute roving patrols with broad, extra-constitutional powers backed by national security, immigration enforcement and drug interdiction mandates."

The NSA's New Partner in Spying: Saudi Arabia's Brutal State Police
By Glenn Greenwald
"The National Security Agency last year significantly expanded its cooperative relationship with the Saudi Ministry of Interior, one of the world's most repressive and abusive government agencies."

“The more the dead, the better”: Israel’s crumbling media war
As the world watches in horror at the massacre of Palestinians, Israel’s propaganda war is being challenged

By DEEPA KUMAR
"When innocent Palestinian children and women are killed, the first response should be to show empathy; the next is to reframe the issue stating that Israel is not to blame and that it is only defending itself and further that it only wants peace."

Bombing for Oil: Gaza, Israel and the Levant Basin
from Revolution-news.com's website
"This article will focus on the large natural gas discoveries made in the Levant Basin, off the coast of the Gaza Strip in recent years and the war surrounding who will reap the billions of dollars when those wells become a new major producer in the area."

Armed robbery in Gaza - Israel, US, UK carve up the spoils of Palestine's stolen gas
By Nafeez Ahmed
"Israel desperately covets Gaza's gas as a 'cheap stop-gap' yielding revenues of $6-7 billion a year, writes Nafeez Ahmed. The UK's BG and the US's Noble Energy are lined up to do the dirty work - but first Hamas must be 'uprooted' from Gaza, and Fatah bullied into cutting off its talks with Russia's Gazprom."

Blockading the Truth: Obama's Big Lie About Gaza
By Chris Floyd
"It is simply a lie that Israel's slaughter in Gaza is a response to an 'unprovoked attack' by Hamas. Not only is it a lie, it is a transparent, brazen lie, whose falsehood is glaringly apparent to anyone who had given even a cursory look at coverage of the Israeli government's response to the murder of three Israeli teenagers in June."

Samantha Power And The Age Of Genocide; Rwanda 1994 vs Gaza 2014
By Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

“Evil that is stalking us”: Fear-mongering and the real Middle East scandal
A new counterterrorism report warns of all kinds of global doom. But there's something particularly odd about that

By MARCY WHEELER
"Yet even though the government has instituted most recommendations the 9/11 Commission made 10 years ago, and even though the report finds the government’s performance “good,” the picture this report paints is bleak."

Ambulance Chaser in the House
Congress’s Next Big Idea? Sue Obama

By Timothy Egan
"John Boehner, has announced that Republicans in the House are likely to file suit against President Obama."

Henry A. Giroux | Killing Machines and the Madness of Militarism: From Gaza to Afghanistan
By Henry A. Giroux
"Militarism is like a lethal virus that takes as its first victim both historical memory and any sense of moral and social responsibility. In the United States and Israel, at the present moment, it is no longer one strain of ideology that permeates these societies; it is a general condition that gives meaning to almost all aspects of life."

The Rise of the American Taliban
By The Daily Take Team, The Thom Hartmann Program
"That's because we have our very own ISIS and very own Taliban right here in the United States. It's called the Christian hard-right, it's been in America for a very long time, and it's pushing beliefs that share a worldview and a face with those of ISIS and the Taliban."

The Christian right’s obscene, defining hypocrisy
Evangelicals urge children to "convert or go to hell" and still accuse *liberals* of indoctrinating America's youth

By Amanda Marcotte

Dead Is Dead: Drone-Killing the Fifth Amendment
By Peter Van Buren
"Due process is the only requirement of government that is stated twice in the Constitution, signaling its importance. The Fifth Amendment imposed the due process requirement on the federal government, while the Fourteenth Amendment did the same for the states."

“The Kill Team”: When U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan became trophy hunters
A wrenching documentary explores the Army's gruesome murders of Afghan civilians, and one soldier who spoke out

By Andrew O'Hehir
"In a week when a different conflict with a high civilian body count is dominating the headlines, 'The Kill Team' arrives as a terrifying example of how easily basic human decency and morality can melt away in the fog of war."

Why People Are Organizing to End U.S. Empire
The U.S. empire economy no longer serves us — as it fades, we must choose our path forward.

By Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers

Texas gun nuts’ scary ritual: How hatred of a president turned profane
The "open carry" crew is now spouting right-wing conspiracy theories and waving guns in the worst place imaginable

By Heather Digby Parton

Why the Border Crisis Is a Myth
By VERONICA ESCOBAR
"There’s no denying the impact of this latest immigration wave or the need for more resources. But there’s no crisis. Local communities like mine have done an amazing job of assisting these migrants."

NOT ALL JEWS SUPPORT ISRAEL
By Philip Kleinfeld
"For British Jews and other diaspora communities that oppose this, the added tragedy is that it is done in our name, in the expectation of our full, unflinching support."

My party has lost its soul: Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and the victory of Wall Street Democrats
A former Clinton aide on how Democrats lost their way chasing Wall Street cash, and new populism the party needs

By BILL CURRY
"Democrats today defend the triage liberalism of social service spending but limit their populism to hollow phrase mongering (fighting for working families, Main Street not Wall Street). The rank and file seem oblivious to the party’s long Wall Street tryst. Obama’s economic appointees are the most conservative of any Democratic president since Grover Cleveland but few Democrats seem to notice, or if they notice, to care."

The truth about our Wi-Fi society: What the quest for constant connection really means
NYC now plans to turn old pay phones into wireless hotspots, raising new questions about our hyper-connected lives

By ANDREW LEONARD

The World Is Doomed By Western Insouciance
By Paul Craig Roberts
"European governments and the Western media have put the world at risk by enabling Washington's propaganda and aggression against Russia...The reason that Washington demonizes a leader and a country is to permit the creation of circumstances that Washington can use to act with force against a leader and a country."

The “Ted Cruz is smart” trap: Why this garbage is false — and dangerous
The Texas senator convinces all of his enemies to praise his intellect. Here's why they're wrong -- and should stop

NATHAN ROBINSON
" It can’t really be that we think Cruz has a sophisticated mind, given that the only thoughts he produces are angry pants-on-fire platitudinous drivel."

Deconstructing the Zionist View of Gaza's Horror
By Lawrence Davidson

A Stronger Bill to Limit Surveillance
By THE NYT EDITORIAL BOARD
"The Senate is about to begin debate on a bill that could, at long last, put an end to the indiscriminate bulk collection of Americans’ telephone records and bring needed transparency to the abusive spying programs that have tarnished the nation’s reputation."

Debunking the myths about Gaza: The truth behind Israeli and Palestinian talking points
Why this fight now? Who started it? What happened with the kidnapped Israeli teens? Getting to the bottom of myths

By OMAR BADDAR

Blaming Russia as "Flat Fact"
By Robert Parry
"As nuclear-armed America hurtles into a completely avoidable crash with nuclear-armed Russia over Ukraine, you can now see the dangers of 'information warfare' when facts give way to propaganda and the press fails to act as an impartial arbiter."

Obama really let these clowns win? How right-wing obstruction always trumps sober centrism
The president longed to bridge the partisan divide. The right made the conciliator into a dictator -- and won

By THOMAS FRANK
"What’s tragic is that the succeeding years of GOP obstructionism were entirely predictable, as was the ultimate failure of Obama’s centrist strategy. But that failure has taught us nothing, as the failure of Clinton’s centrist strategy taught us nothing."

Robert Reich: “American” corporations are a farce
The former secretary of labor explains how U.S. multinationals are playing American taxpayers, and how to stop them

By ROBERT REICH

Congress Must Act to Help Children Crossing the Border
By THE NYT EDITORIAL BOARD

Spies Like Us
By Jochen Bittner
"Legally, the German intelligence services are not allowed to share information with the Americans that might be used for drone strikes, interrogations that might involve torture and wars without a United Nations mandate."

The Senate is giving more power to the NSA, in secret. Everyone should fight it
Politicians are still trying to hand over your data behind closed doors, under the guise of 'cybersecurity' reform. Have we learned nothing?

By Trevor Timm
"One of the most underrated benefits of Edward Snowden's leaks was how they forced the US Congress to shelve the dangerous, privacy-destroying legislation– then known as Cispa – that so many politicians had been so eager to pass under the guise of "cybersecurity". Now a version of the bill is back (called the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (Cisa)), and apparently its authors want to keep you in the dark about it for as long as possible."

How Politics and Lies Triggered an Unintended War in Gaza
Kidnap, Crackdown, Mutual Missteps and a Hail of Rockets

By J.J. Goldberg

A Defense of Reproductive Rights
By THE NYT EDITORIAL BOARD

The truth about the immigration “crisis”: Our drug policies and U.S.-backed tyrants created Central America’s culture of violence
If you want to really understand what's happening at the border, revisit the violence we visited upon the region

By PATRICK L. SMITH

Scalia’s major screw-up: How SCOTUS just gave liberals a huge gift
With an otherwise awful Hobby Lobby ruling, right-wing judges just said I don't have to pay for warfare! Here's why

By SARAH RUDEN
"I look forward with mirth to the Supreme Court’s deliberations on whether the portion of military spending funded by the taxes of religious pacifists represents a compelling public interest."

Highways Need a Higher Gas Tax
By THE NYT EDITORIAL BOARD
"About 10,000 motorists die each year because of inadequate road conditions, and millions of other Americans waste large portions of their lives stuck in traffic or stalled trains."

The Coming Democratic Schism
By Thomas B. Edsall
"The Pew survey points up the emergence of a cohort of younger voters who are loyal to the Democratic Party, but much less focused on economic redistribution than on issues of personal and sexual autonomy."

By NATHAN THRALL

The growing trend that’s got the religious right thoroughly rattled
The real reason conservatives are so determined to protect their religious freedoms? America's growing secularism

By AMANDA MARCOTTE

Faith-Based Fanatics
By Timothy Egan
"But this year, the ancient struggle of My God versus Your God is at the root of dozens of atrocities, giving pause to the optimists among us (myself included) who believe that while the arc of enlightenment is long, it still bends toward the better."

Collective punishment or human shields? Israel’s military has no “moral superiority,” time for media to cover Gaza fairly
The civilian death toll in Gaza is immoral and unacceptable -- and it's time to talk honestly about all of it

By OMAR BADDAR

The right’s border fiction: Byron York reveals its made-up immigration “facts”

By THOMAS FRANK

The future of warfare: Why we should all be very afraid
Imagine an army of robots with the power to decide whom and when to kill. Brace yourself, because it's happening

By RORY TOLAN
"Even as naïfs tout a lessening in the loss of life, even as they say that shattered machines would be better than soldiers brought home in boxes, death on the opposite side would swell to unprecedented proportions."

"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
