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.

The Real Story Behind the Fort Dix Five Terror Plot
By Murtaza Hussain and Razan Ghalayini
"Beyond the sensational headlines is the story of paid FBI informants with long criminal histories who spent a year working to befriend the brothers and enlist them as terrorists."

The right’s tortured Obamacare arguments get a Supreme Court smackdown: Inside the demise of the “Moops” doctrine
The Supreme Court ruled convincingly in favor of Obamacare's subsidies, and Republicans should be grateful

By Simon Maloy

The Supreme Court Saves Obamacare, Again
"Its core claim — that an ambiguous four-word phrase buried deep in the 900-page law eliminates health insurance for millions of lower-income Americans — was preposterous."

The Roberts Court’s Reality Check
By Linda Greenhouse

Why Republicans are determined to ignore the threat of right-wing extremism
The GOP is more than happy to rave about Islamic extremism — but refuse to acknowledge the homegrown variety

By Heather Digby Parton

A Refuge for Racists
By Timothy Egan
"For the many Republicans who believe in free markets, less government and the racial legacy of Lincoln, the question has to be asked: What do some of society’s worst elements see in their party?"

The Supreme Court Keeps the Fair Housing Law Effective
"Housing discrimination doesn’t have to be intentional to be illegal."

Go away, Mike Huckabee: The culture wars are over — and hate and the GOP lost
Republicans will continue to toss meat at the culture warriors hijacking their party -- and they'll keep losing

By Sean Illing

Scalia, Thomas & Alito have totally lost it: The complete and utter incoherence of the conservative Supreme Court justices

A dramatic re-enactment of Scalia’s absurd marriage equality dissent — now with more “mystical aphorisms of the fortune cookie!”

We restarted the Cold War: The real story about the NATO buildup that the New York Times won’t tell you
"As of this week, leaders who know nothing about leading, thinkers who do not think and opinion-shaping poseurs such as Tom Friedman are confident enough in their case to sally forth with it: The Cold War returns, "

5 Iraq strategies that are guaranteed to fail
"In one form or another, the U.S. has been at war with Iraq since 1990, including a sort-of invasion in 1991 and a full-scale one in 2003. During that quarter-century,"

Donald Trump is even more of a monster than you think: Why his golf courses are environmental disasters

A Profound Ruling Delivers Justice on Gay Marriage

America’s health care system is still broken: Why single-payer is the only thing that will ever fix it

These clowns will never give it up: Post-SCOTUS, GOP vows to get super serious about repealing Obamacare

President Obama on the Viability of Politics to Make Change
By Nancy LeTourneau

“The question is just when”: Max Blumenthal on war in the Gaza Strip’s past — and its future
"But these wars are inevitable as long as Israel remains a Jewish state. As long as it remains a Jewish state, it has to maintain its artificial demographic majority through violent means; by warehousing people, by occupying and controlling them, or by excluding them as refugees."

Killer robots are coming next: The next military-industrial complex will involve real-life Terminators
War's scary future will be led by machines, but require a moral framework. Do we have the foresight or standing?

By Wendell Wallach
"What remains undecided is whether robotic war machines will become fully autonomous. Will they pick their own targets and pull the trigger without the approval of a human?"

God is not on our side: The religious right’s big lie about the founding of America
"Assertions of the nation’s religious origins and of divine providence behind the crafting of the governing instruments are especially popular among politicians. In fact, religious declarations by elected officials are so common today that they have become routine, if not banal."

Preventing a Space War
"Of all the places where conflict could erupt, space might seem the least likely, except in movies. But increasingly, it is becoming a contested environment posing new dangers."

Big business declares war on science: The secret story of the Chamber of Commerce’s battle against the environment, global warming action
Driven by a fervor for profit and an anti-government frenzy, the Chamber is a fighting force for the 1 percent

By Alyssa Katz

Schizophrenia may be the price of our humanity
"But at least one mental malady, while common in humans, seems to have spared other animals: schizophrenia, which affects an estimated 0.4 to 1 percent of adults."

Dark Money’s Deepening Power
"President Obama is reported to be considering an important brake on the torrent of “dark money” already flooding the 2016 presidential campaign — an executive order requiring federal contractors to disclose their donations to political candidates."

GOP declares war on the Supreme Court: What’s really behind the reactionary plot against the judiciary
There's some serious conservative rage to be leveraged right now, and Ted Cruz is leading the pandering contest

By Jim Newell

They’ll never stop fighting the culture wars: Why the GOP won’t seize its “opportunity” to give up extremism

Donald Trump’s glorious comeuppance: America’s biggest buffoon is finally getting what he deserves
The billionaire was shown the door by NBC. Now his biggest platform is a nightmare reality show: The GOP primary

By Bob Cesca
"Trump is such a vile operator that any time the slightest misfortune crashes down upon his ridiculous clown wig, it’s perfectly acceptable and in fact constitutionally mandatory to bask in the warm glow of schadenfreude."

“Boycotts and divestments are not anti-Semitic”: Organized religion takes up the BDS fight
The BDS debate can no longer be dismissed as just a campus movement. Even the Vatican has recognized Palestine

By David Palumbo-Liu

The Confederate flag isn’t just a symbol: Why America’s emblems of hate matter — and their disappearance should be celebrated

At the Supreme Court, a Win for Direct Democracy
"So to uphold direct democracy as a constitutionally permissible tool for regulating elections, the court had to conclude that, when the Constitution uses the term 'legislature,' it does not (in its original formulation) permit the popular election of senators but does permit popular regulation of the election process. There is no easy answer, and that conundrum is what produced a legitimate 5-to-4 divide."

America is addicted to war: Terror, drugs and the existential threats that define us

Gov. Chris Christie’s Phony Truth-Telling

Crew Of Aid Ship Headed For Gaza Kidnapped By Israeli Navy
"It's an act of kidnapping to take international citizens from international waters to a country not of their choice against their will."

By Sarah Lazare for Common Dreams

Victory for Democracy as Court Sides with Voters over 'Self-Dealing Legislators'
SCOTUS upholds 'the right of We the People to take redistricting out of secret backrooms run by politicians and into the public light of citizen-driven commissions.'

B yDeirdre Fulton, staff writer

It’s worse than gerrymandering: This is the reform we need to restore democracy, competitive elections
"The real culprit is the exclusive use of winner-take-all elections on today’s climate of fierce political polarization. Dividing a state into geographic districts can never be both fair and competitive."

The next Cold War is here: China, Russia and the ghosts of Dwight Eisenhower

'While the Flotilla Didn't Make it to Gaza, Israel Didn't Win'
By Medea Benjamin

Israeli Navy Intercepts Ship in Flotilla Sailing Toward Gaza Strip

Seattle on the Mediterranean
By Timothy Egan
"Seattle is farther north than Maine and Montreal, and yet, over the last month or so, it’s been hotter here than Athens, Rome or Los Angeles on many a day."

A Sensible Question for Gun Owners
"California has some of the nation’s strongest gun safety laws, but one that requires citizens to supply a “good cause” for why they should be granted a license to carry concealed weapons in public is under challenge."

Jim Webb jumps in: Confederate flag supporter announces bid for the Democratic nomination

The Euro Intercepts
By Wiki Leaks

Trade in Services Agreement Wikileaks release
By Julian Assange

Why I Am On Gaza Freedom Flotilla 3
By Ann Wright

Neoliberals’ pity party: Why an emboldened liberalism has corporate Dems running scared

The Nitwits Are in Charge
By Robert Parry

Green Jill Stein Is Fighting for Open Debates and Real Democracy
By John Nichols
"Dr. Jill Stein has some great ideas about how to create 'deep system change, moving from the greed and exploitation of corporate capitalism to a human-centered economy that puts people, planet and peace over profit.'"

The GOP’s staggering Charleston cowardice: Why are so many Republicans so scared of admitting the truth?
"And yet the mere possibility that someone inspired by ISIS might do exactly what Americans motivated by political grievance, social isolation, racist hatred, mental illness or some mixture of all of them do — with some frequency — strikes people as a fundamental threat to all we hold dear."

Pope Francis’s Unreserved Embrace of Animal Protection
By Wayne Pacelle, HSUS

White America is complicit: Charleston, Dylann Roof and the country’s real race war
"We are a country where mass shootings are weekly news, where gun violence is a fact of daily life, where there is a legacy of terror against black people and communities, where white racists have long targeted black churches, where African-American life is so devalued it can be taken with impunity."

UN report details massive Israeli war crimes in Gaza in 2014
By Abdus-Sattar Ghazali

Law and Symbolism at the Supreme Court
By Linda Greenhouse
"Who would have supposed that within days, the whole world would seem to be rallying around the cause of removing the Confederate flag from the grounds of the South Carolina capitol, a movement now spreading to Mississippi and to other Southern states that have clung too long to an image freshly soaked in blood."

NYT's Orwellian View of Ukraine
By Robert Parry
"Like the leaders of Orwell's Oceania, the Times has become increasingly heavy-handed in its propaganda."

Let that hateful flag fly: From George W. Bush to Lindsey Graham, a history of Republican support for the Confederate flag
"According to a 2011 Pew Research poll, just nine percent of Americans had a positive reaction to the Confederate flag. But while the ranks of stars-and-bars fans may be thin nationally, much of the modern Republican Party, defined as it is by white Southern support, cannot bring itself to condemn the symbol of racial apartheid."

Climate Change and Moral Responsibility
"The greenhouse gas emissions that are warming our planet come from industrial activity that pollutes our air and water, and the temperature changes may lead to drought that brings malnutrition."

Apologize for Slavery
By Timothy Egan
"The Confederate flag that still flies on the grounds of the Statehouse in South Carolina, cradle of the Civil War, is a reminder that the hatred behind the proclaimed right to own another human being has never left our shores."

Justice Kennedy on Solitary Confinement
"While he agreed with the majority on the result, Mr. Kennedy wrote separately to address what has become one of his most pressing concerns: America’s broken criminal justice system in general, and prolonged solitary confinement in particular."

How Not to Respond to the Murders in Charleston

The racist disease we never discuss: Dylann Roof, over-policing and the real story about safety in America
People of comfort get freedom and security. People of color and the poor get neither

By Corey Robin
"So long as the discussion is framed as one of protection, of safety and security, we won’t get beyond the society that produced Dylann Roof."

The Cost of Letting Young People Drift
"The crisis, in a nutshell, is the isolation of millions of young black and Latino men, who are disengaged from school, work and mainstream institutions generally."

Lift the Cuba Travel Ban
"The ban — the only travel prohibition American citizens are currently subjected to — never made sense, and it’s particularly misguided in an era of broadening engagement between the United States and Cuba."

White Supremacists Without Borders
"Americans tend to view attacks like the mass murder in Charleston as isolated hate crimes, the work of a deranged racist or group of zealots lashing out in anger, unconnected to a broader movement. This view we can no longer afford to indulge."

Take Down the Confederate Flag, Symbol of Hatred
"Only in later decades was the flag introduced — and steadily elevated in importance — to bolster the idea of white supremacy at moments when South Carolina’s Jim Crow-era government came under federal pressure to allow black citizens even nominal civil rights."

War Crimes and the Gaza War
"Both sides were faulted, but much of the criticism was placed on Israel."

Skyrocketing Extinctions Put Humans at Risk
"Under their most conservative estimates, mammal species have gone extinct at 28 times the baseline rate since 1900, and amphibian species have gone extinct at 22 times the baseline."

My hatred of Authority, Along With My Loathing for the Pretensions, Heartlessness, and Sense of Entitlement of the Rich
By Chris Hedges
"The cocoon of wealth and privilege permits the rich to turn those around them into compliant and expendable workers, hangers-on, servants, and sycophants."

Who’s Speaking Up for the American Worker?

Fox News’ denial is pathological: Race, guns and the lies the network tells itself
In the wake of the Charleston massacre, the network is laboring to offer a coherent explanation for the shootings

By Eric Boehlert, Media Matters

America's Slave Empire
By Chris Hedges
"By refusing to work -- a tactic that would force prison authorities to hire compensated labor or to induce the prisoners to return to their jobs by paying a fair wage -- the neoslavery that defines the prison system can be broken."

Pam Geller’s Islamification
animation 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
