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.

Ignorance, racism and rage: The GOP’s transformation to the party of stupid started long before Donald Trump

Europe: A Better Plan for Refugees
By George Soros
"Most of the building blocks for an effective asylum system are available; they only need to be assembled into a comprehensive and coherent policy. Critically, refugees and the countries that contain them in the Middle East must receive enough financial support to make their lives there viable, allowing them to work and to send their children to school."

Republicans really fall for this nonsense: The GOP is the party of stupid, but its voters are the deluded ones

Republicans Hijack an Election Agency
"These laws, like voter identification laws, have been pushed by Republican lawmakers trying to reduce turnout among the poor, minorities, the young and the elderly, who tend to lean Democratic. And, like voter ID laws, they’re based on a fiction."

Rush Limbaugh’s primary from hell: Even conservatives are finally turning on the famous blowhard
"Torn between the allure of what’s popular (Trump) and abandoning everything Limbaugh’s said about how he defines conservatism over the last 30 years, Limbaugh now often finds himself in no-man’s land."

Unlocking the Truth About the Clinton Crime Bill
"If we are going to move forward thoughtfully — keeping our neighborhoods safe without consigning huge segments of the population to life behind bars — we must understand how we got here."

Israel’s Unsung Protector: Obama
"Over seven years, Mr. Obama has not permitted passage of any Security Council resolution specifically critical of Israel."

Don’t Blame Panama. Tax Evasion Is a Global Problem.

Sam Brownback declares war on Kansas: This is how extremists gut a state — and democracy

“Media can be the greatest force for peace on earth”: Amy Goodman reflects on the 20th anniversary of “Democracy Now!”

They’ll always despise her: The media has its Hillary narrative, and they’re sticking to it
"As the media have fired their blunderbusses at Donald Trump, trying to take down his candidacy — even as they benefit from the attention he brings them — you may have missed the whacks they’ve been taking at Clinton. She has been the media’s national piñata for so long, and the criticisms of her are so familiar by now, they are embedded in our consciousness as presumptions of guilt."

Let’s audit the Pentagon: The U.S. military is lighting our tax dollars on fire

By Opposing Obama, the Republicans Created Trump
By Steven Rattner
"Most important, you created the anger that lifted his candidacy by years of systematically and effectively preventing passage of legislation that might have ameliorated the tough economic state of Mr. Trump’s core voters."

We let the idiots take the wheel: Donald Trump, Fox News and how we let our democracy rot
"In the current circus posing as a political campaign, commentators and candidates waste much of their time and energy frothing about insignificant issues and phony crises."

Brutal, ugly & illegal: 9 things you need to know about the Israeli occupation of Palestine
"All the candidates admonished the Palestinians for fostering a “culture of hatred and death,” but not one mentioned the occupation of the West Bank, or the unremitting humanitarian crisis that is Gaza. It was Jewish pandering by numbers, and it won them all uproarious applause and standing ovations."

Why Mrs. Clinton Needs to Say More About the Crime Bill

Rush Limbaugh hit where it hurts: World’s greatest troll faces steep pay cut
"This year, his contract is up and the timing couldn’t be worse. The talker is facing ratings hurdles, aging demographics, and an advertising community that increasingly views him as toxic, thanks in part to his days-long sexist meltdown over Sandra Fluke in 2012."

The GOP vs. the pursuit of knowledge: Inside the Republican crusade against science

No Paul Ryan Means Still More Anger
By Thomas B. Edsall
"If Paul Ryan really meant what he said, the Republican Party has lost its best chance to take the White House and maintain control of the Senate."

The progressive movement is in the shadows: It’s time to rally, protest and get in politicians’ faces to become a force they can’t ignore

The Sins of the Chicago Police Laid Bare
"No one who is even passingly familiar with the history of the Chicago Police Department can claim to be surprised by a new report showing that the department is plagued by systemic racism and operates with utter disregard for the lives of the black citizens whom it batters, maims and kills."

They won’t stop until they get what they want: The GOP’s Supreme Court blockade will go on for months — at any cost

The South’s new re-segregation plan: The Koch brothers, ALEC and the sneaky scheme to undo Brown v Board of Education

On Zika, Congress Is Failing to Do Its Job

How the $15 Minimum Wage Went From Laughable to Viable

Donald Trump is the pinnacle of American stupidity: Why his campaign consummates decades of rising anti-intellectualism

A Renewable Energy Boom
"Last year, for the first time, renewables accounted for a majority of new electricity-generating capacity added around the world, according to a recent United Nations report."

This is the Kochs’ right-wing coup: Deny voting rights, flood politics with dark money, capture the courts
"Most recently, we’ve seen an attack on the functioning of an entire branch of our democratic system as GOP senators flat-out refuse to fulfill their constitutional duties by considering President Obama’s eminently qualified nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy, Judge Merrick Garland."

The Lie of Patriotism
By Chris Hedges
"Nationalists do not venerate veterans. They venerate veterans who read from the approved patriotic script. America is the greatest and most powerful country on earth. Those we fight are depraved barbarians. Our enemies deserve death. God is on our side. Victory is assured. Our soldiers and Marines are heroes. "

Why Trump’s Antiwar Message Resonates with White America
"Mr. Trump is unfit for our nation’s highest office. But to those humiliated by defeat, he promises we’ll win again."

Put the blame where it belongs: Bush, Reagan, Kissinger and the real history of the rise of ISIS

Unlocking the Truth About the Clinton Crime Bill
"It is undeniable that two decades of mass incarceration have inflicted grievous harm on African-American men and their families. And yet Mr. Clinton was right to defend his policies (and, by extension, Hillary Clinton’s support for those policies at the time)."

Republicans and Voter Suppression
"It’s become an accepted truth of modern politics that Republican electoral prospects go up as the number of voters goes down."

We are all sanctimonious whores: Ted Cruz, adultery rumors, and our embarrassing, sensationalist media

Inside the Panama Papers: Massive leak shows just how extensive corruption is worldwide, implicating politicians, human traffickers and drug dealers

Donald Trump sets his campaign on fire: A self-destructive madman has decided he wants to lose
"Here’s today’s explanation:Trump never really wanted to be president, the frontrunner seat is getting way too hot, and now he wants out. Being spoiled and impulsive, with only ego to lose, his Icarus-like fall could be far quicker than his rise.  A glimmer of dignity for the profoundly insecure is better than none."

His most terrifying interview yet: Why Trump’s sit down with Bob Woodward should have America petrified

Donald Trump and the Nice People of Wisconsin
By Emma Roller

The Panama Papers’ Sprawling Web of Corruption
"But the questions remain: How did all these politicians, dictators, criminals, billionaires and celebrities amass vast wealth and then benefit from elaborate webs of shell companies to disguise their identities and their assets? "

We are torturers and murderers: America’s first casualty of war is the Constitution

We can’t escape his puckered face: The staggering numbers behind the media’s obsession with Donald Trump

Free Pfizer! Why Inversions Are Good for the U.S.
"DONALD J. TRUMP wants to build a bricks-and-mortar wall to keep immigrants out of the United States. President Obama wants to build a virtual wall to keep companies from leaving. Neither is likely to work."

The bad religion of Republican plutocrats: We can’t afford to overlook the danger of their ideas

This is the problem with Bernie’s revolution: How one down-ticket election in Wisconsin shows the flaw in his political movement

A Mason-Dixon Line of Progress
By Timothy Egan
"We saw a retreat to bigotry in states dooming themselves to decline. And in other states, we saw a way for people to get around a do-nothing Congress controlled by Know-Nothing throwbacks."

For Ann Coulter, it’s OK when Republicans cheat on their wives: Right-wing bigmouth’s justifications for Trump’s adultery shines light on the sexual double standard

What I Learned From Tickling Apes
"By explaining the smartness of animals either as a product of instinct or simple learning, we have kept human cognition on its pedestal under the guise of being scientific."

Evangelicals put to shame: Atheists tend to be more religiously tolerant than Christians
"Tolerance is a hallmark of Western democracies. A core tenet of democratic societies is the freedom of religious and political expression, and even the most obnoxious and ridiculous views must be tolerated. Bad ideas are best conquered with good ideas rather than with repression."

Republicans really fall for this nonsense: The GOP is the party of stupid, but its voters are the deluded ones

The mystery of Republican women backing sexist Trump: They’re female misogynists who’ve grown to accept oppression

The Awful Transformation of Bernie Sanders
By Earl Ofari Hutchinson
"Sanders has gone from a charming, engaging, provoking, and supremely principled Democratic presidential candidate to a scheming, conniving, devious, supremely unprincipled Democratic presidential contender."

The Racism at the Heart of Flint’s Crisis
"An important new report makes clear the principal cause of the water crisis in Flint, Mich.: the state government’s blatant disregard for the lives and health of poor and black residents of a distressed city."

Trump’s Terror Dependency
By Timothy Egan

Hillary Clinton and Other Candidates on Counterterrorism

Donald Trump’s entire campaign is based on a single outrageous lie
"You can be guaranteed that neither of these men has spent a serious moment considering what it might really mean to deport those 11 million actual human beings."

12-step groups of hate: A psychotherapist’s take on Donald Trump’s wild rallies
"Trump speaks and tweets in pure primary process: short, childish, repetitive sentences conjuring simple images and feelings to make his points rather than using logic, facts or argument. "

Abortion and Punishment
"Abortion opponents know full well that the public would not abide putting women in prison en masse."

Life under brutal, illegal military occupation: The much-needed context surrounding the slaying of Palestinian attackers by Israeli soldiers
"What is often left out of media reports on this violence, however, is the fact that the vast majority of Palestinian attacks take place in the illegally occupied territories, and are frequently directed at Israeli occupation soldiers, not civilians."

Another reason for Republicans to feel terrible: Obama’s popularity is spiking — further destroying the GOP’s chances of saving its sinking ship

Why Should ‘Never Trump’ Mean Ted Cruz?

Voting With Our Feet
By Chris Hedges
"Trump is not creating phenomena. He is responding to them. It is up to us to halt the array of forces, including the Trump campaign, that are preparing a species of American fascism and orchestrating a global ecocide."

Time to Rethink U.S. Relationship With Egypt
"Outraged by the escalating repression, leading American Middle East experts — including two who served in the Obama administration — this week urged President Obama to confront President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi."

Donald Trump would be scarier than George W. Bush: His unserious, incendiary approach would damage America for decades — and we should be terrified

We’re not taking Islamophobia seriously: This cancerous racism is on the rise — and it’s even more dangerous than you think

Obama: The Anti-Anti-Nuke President
"It is the Republican-controlled Congress that is pushing the most ambitious arms control project in recent memory. Inexplicably, President Obama is the one resisting."

We brought this on ourselves, and we are the terrorists, too
"The violence, disorder and anxiety that threaten to envelop us is not 'terrorism' only when visited on Western societies and arriving by primitive rather than high-technology means—exploding bags of nails as against expensive bombs. Among the victims and perpetrators of terror, it naturally follows, no part of the world is populated by the one but never the other."

Naked Lady Politics
"In this strangest of primary seasons, women exist primarily in terms of their relationships to the men they marry or question or critique."

The State Assault on Planned Parenthood

Lin-Manuel Miranda: Give Puerto Rico Its Chance to Thrive
"But since it is a territory of the United States, there is no system in place to handle the financial and humanitarian crisis that is happening right now."

We Are All Islamic State
By Chris Hedges
"The tit-for-tat game of killing will not end until exhaustion, until the culture of death breaks us emotionally and physically. We use our drones, warplanes, missiles and artillery to rip apart walls and ceilings, blow out windows and kill or wound those inside."

The U.S. has terrorized Cuba for over 50 years — Fidel Castro is right to be wary of Obama’s claims

Mr. Trump’s Dangerous Babble on Foreign Policy
" In a recent spate of interviews, including with The Times, he was unable or unwilling to clarify his disturbing views on this and other critical national security issues, which sometimes shift from one minute to the next."

"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
