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.

A Major Breakthrough on Climate Change

America’s dark imperial legacy: It goes much deeper than George W. Bush
While our 43rd president rightly takes blame for his disastrous failed wars, there's much more blame to go around

By Robert W. McChesney

IRS regularly seizes “suspicious” bank accounts without a criminal charge

Cancel the Midterms
"Ninety million sounds like a lot, but that means that less than 40 percent of the electorate will bother to vote, even though candidates, advocacy groups and shadowy 'super PACs' will have spent more than $1 billion to air more than two million ads to influence the election.

Will the Right's Fake History Prevail?
By Robert Parry, Consortium News
"If most polls are correct and voters elect a Republican-controlled Congress on Tuesday, a principal reason is that many Americans have been sold on a false recounting of the nation’s Founding Narrative. They have bought the Right’s made-up storyline about the Constitution’s Framers detesting a strong federal government and favoring states’ rights."

Here we go again: The media starts pushing the “moderate GOP” myth
The Times thinks the GOP civil war is over and the establishment has won. Here's why that's total nonsense

By Elias Isquith
"Simply put, the establishment and McConnell didn’t bother themselves with the question of moderates versus radicals. They just tried to make sure no GOPer would pull a Todd Akin, and that all the party’s candidates would at least look and sound like they knew what they were doing."

“Ride this popular charisma!”: Luke Russert & co.’s bizarre coverage of Joni Ernst
There was a huge political story about GOP extremists taking over the party this cycle. Instead, we were told this

Ed note: Ernst didn't just castrate young pigs on the family farm. She also shoveled their crap down enough Iowan throats to win the election. Now Iowans will be emabarrassed by their own Michelle Bachman."

The Big Sleep
By Timothy Egan

By Matt Taibbi

EXCLUSIVE: Jon Stewart’s Salon interview: Humanizing torturers, our dysfunctional politics, and why we view our political enemies as X-Men

We are what we drink
cartoon by Matt Wuerker


"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
