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.

New articles added from the past week that discuss: Now that long overdue diplomatic relations with Cuba have been reestablised, will Obama finally close Gitmo?, why Donald Trump is the byproduct of a decayed Republican Party, why the GOP aka 'the party that loves war' is recklessly opposing the Iran deal, why it would be foolish to give something to Israel in order to get them to back off their criticism of the Iran deal, while the Iran deal may not be perfect nothing its GOP critics in Congress have ever voted for has been, 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

The Morning After the Iran Deal

It’s worse than Jerry Seinfeld says: PC is undermining free speech, expression, liberties
The "shut it down" crowd that would sanitize humor just doesn't get it: Radical comedians should be allies

By Mick Hume

Jeb’s stepped in it, now: He would not recklessly destroy U.S. foreign policy within hours of taking office
"The idea of withdrawing from the agreement mere minutes or hours after taking the oath of office, without any diplomatic infrastructure in place from the new administration, just for the sake of it, is obviously an insane thing to consider doing. But Marco Rubio and Scott Walker — two serious contenders! — have nevertheless pledged to do exactly that."

Who is to blame when a robot kills a human?

The Spirit of Judy Miller is Alive and Well at the NYT, and It Does Great Damage
By Glenn Greenwald
"Granting anonymity to government officials and then uncritically printing what these anonymous officials claim, treating it all as Truth, is not an aberration for the New York Times."

No "Compensation" to Israel for Iran Deal
By Sheldon Richman
"But even if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were right about Iran's intentions, he should be rejoicing at the agreement, under which Iran will get rid of nearly all of its enriched uranium and two-thirds of its centrifuges."

“A fourth operation in the Gaza Strip is inevitable”: Another war threatens Gaza before it’s even been rebuilt
"Three years ago, the United Nations issued a report predicting that the Gaza Strip would be uninhabitable by 2020. Thanks to Israel’s recent attack, this warning appears to have arrived sooner than expected."

What scientific consensus?: A complete guide to climate denial and the 2016 GOP candidates
"The GOP field, in comparison to that — and in comparison to any rational world in which people refrain from quibbling with the scientific consensus on issues they don’t understand — is a hot pile of climate-denying garbage."

A Good Deal for Israel
"So, yes, we could have gotten a better deal. Israel wanted something different (as did the United States), but this is the agreement that was reached — and despite its faults, it is not a bad one. Crucially, it will contribute to Israel’s security."

What war-hungry conservatives completely ignore about Iran
"To be clear, Iran’s domestic human rights record leaves much to be desired. On the international front, however, we see a subtly different picture. Iran has not invaded another country in centuries. This, despite the United States overthrowing Iran’s democratically elected government in 1953, aiding Iraq in invading Iran with the use of chemical weapons on Iranian soldiers in 1980, and maintaining economic sanctions for over a decade."

A Day of Reckoning is Coming
By Dave Lefcourt

Racism and xenophobia are exactly why Republicans love Donald Trump, polls show

The Only Realistic Way to Fix Campaign Finance
"Real reform will require changing the way campaigns are funded — moving from large-dollar private funding to small-dollar public funding."

Israel's endless misery for Gaza is no policy at all
By Jonathan Cook
[Actually it is a policy: One of deliberate and gradual genocide.]

Obama Acts For America's Interests
By Eric Margolis
"Barack Obama is the first American president to stand up to the Israel lobby since Dwight Eisenhower ordered Israel to withdraw from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula in 1956-57."

Getting Down to Business in Cuba
By Medea Benjamin
"In case you missed it, the United States and Cuba now have diplomatic relations for the first time in 54 years. Unfortunately, the outdated economic embargo is smothering the tremendous potential this opening offers."

Formal Restoration of Diplomatic Ties With Cuba Is Just a Beginning
"For more than five decades, the enmity between the United States and Cuba has dominated the island’s politics, served as a pretext for government repression and shaped the lives of all Cubans in painful ways."

Really, it’s time to shut down the GOP: A deeply unserious party, hijacked by lunatics and Fox News, is driving us all into a ditch
"News" without truth. A base that celebrates a clown. Tear the party down and start over -- for the country's sake

By Sean Illing
"The GOP, in many respects, is no longer a legitimate governing party. They’ve become a self-perpetuating hype machine, a jobs program for conservative political entrepreneurs."

“Fox News is like a lying dynasty!”: Sixteen years of Jon Stewart’s best Fox News takedowns in 90 seconds

From now on, Democracy is like Disposable Diaper

Netanyahu’s self-serving scare tactics: Why his Iran fear-mongering is riddled with contradictions
"The globe’s loudest critic of the Iran deal, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is looking to go nuclear himself in his hard sell to Washington to kill the historic agreement."

Conspiracy theorists have hijacked the GOP: What happens when Trump, Cruz & Carson start following Alex Jones’ lead?
"The modern GOP, inch-by-inch and day-by-day, continues to embrace the very fringes of the political discourse by sounding eerily similar to paleoconservative conspiracy theorists like radio host and talking throat polyp Alex Jones."

Obama gives Iran hawks the smackdown they so richly deserve: They bungled Iraq, and they’ve learned nothing
[Unfortunately the smackdown they deserved should have been criminal charges for war crimes and torture but that didn't happen.]

The Campaign of Deception Against Planned Parenthood
"A hidden-camera video released last week purported to show that Planned Parenthood illegally sells tissue from aborted fetuses. It shows nothing of the sort."

Sorry, Rick Perry: Donald Trump isn’t a “cancer” on conservatism — he embodies conservatism

Obama could be on the verge of another big victory: White House finalizing plan to close Guantanamo Bay

Unraveling the axis of stupid: How Iran deal sends neocons, exceptionalists and Fox News xenophobes to dustbin of history
"A dispute a dozen years old is brought peaceably to resolution, and a 36-year breach between Washington and Tehran can begin to mend. The world can now welcome the Islamic Republic back into the community of nations. Into the bin, at last, with that contemptible 'axis of evil' rubbish Bush II forced the Western alliance to pretend to take seriously."

How the media missed the Donald Trump surge
"But is Trump’s run really that surprising? It shouldn’t be if you’ve been paying attention to the radical, obstructionist turn both Republican politics and the right-wing media have taken over the last six-plus years."

A Religion Case Too Far for the Supreme Court?
By Linda Greenhouse

Testing the U.S.-Israel Bond
By Shmuel Rosner

Dylann Roof should be tried as a terrorist: America’s disturbing double-standard on political violence (and why it matters)

The Anti-Immigrant Binge in Congress
"Congress is in danger of taking that most cursed of American political disagreements, the debate over illegal immigration, and dragging it farther toward insanity."

Trump Is the Poison His Party Concocted
By Timothy Egan
"Yes, how did we get to a point where up to one-fourth of the party of Lincoln, Eisenhower and Reagan now aligns itself with Donald Trump?"

Donald Trump is an actual fascist: What his surging popularity says about the GOP base
"Much like Mussolini and Hitler, Trump is a demagogue dedicated to riling up the people (particularly conservatives) with race baiting, traditionalism and strongman tough talk — and, according to polls, it’s working — for now."

Will any major Democrats stand up against the GOP’s rampant Islamophobia?
{It may be smarter politics to keep giving the GOP more rope to hang itself.]

Why Donald Trump is Literally the Best Possible Presidential Candidate… Ever
By John Vibes

While Israel would like to be seen as a defender of religious freedom in the Middle East, the reality is one of oppression and discrimination for Arab Christians since the occupation began.
By MintPress News Desk

The First Woman President: Jill Stein?

The Treaty
By Uri Avnery
"Netanyahu's nightmare of an Iranian nuclear attack on Israel is just that -- a nightmare (or daymare) of an ignorant dilettante."

Beyond White / Man’s Country

Biting the Hand That Feeds You
Bibi Netanyahu should temper his apocalyptic criticism of the Iran nuclear deal.

By Susan Milligan
"There are reasons why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu might understandably oppose the hard-fought nuclear weapons containment deal the U.S. and other nations negotiated with Iran. And there are more than three billion reasons why he might want to be a little less strident in his criticism."

Iran’s Jewish Community Leader: Netanyahu Is “Narcissistic” and “Delusional”
Former Israeli Foreign Minister Shlomo Ben-Ami: "Netanyahu is an ideologue of Jewish catastrophe."

By Jonas E. Alexis

Philippines' Terror-Inducing "War on Terror"
By Marjorie Cohn

Psychologists Who Greenlighted Torture
"A new report by a former federal prosecutor, first disclosed by James Risen in The Times, contains astonishing, disturbing details. It found that top members of the American Psychological Association, the largest professional organization of psychologists, colluded with officials at the Pentagon and the C.I.A. to keep the group’s ethics policies in line with tactics that interrogators working for the agency and the military were employing."

The Chattanooga Shootings: Can Attacking Military Sites of a Nation at War be "Terrorism"?
By Glenn Greenwald
" If you ask them to distinguish why they regard civilian-killing U.S. violence as legitimate and justified but regard the violence aimed at the U.S. as the opposite ('terrorism'), they'll likely claim that the U.S. only kills civilians by accident, not on purpose. Whether one is targeting civilian versus military sites is a central aspect to how we talk about the justifiability of violence and what is and is not 'terrorism.'"

It's not terrorism if it's retaliation: Chattanooga Shooting, If Linked to ISIS, is a Legitimate Act of War
By Dave Lindorff
"If it turns out that Abdulazeez was in any way linked to ISIS, then his action in attacking US military personnel in the US and killing them has to be seen not as terrorism but as a legitimate retributive act of war."

The Bernie Sanders Moment
"In Mr. Sanders’s run — and in the absence of a White House bid from Senator Elizabeth Warren — progressives have found a candidate they can support wholeheartedly."

Let’s make the South stop lying: The right’s war on our history — and truth — must be defeated now

America’s drone program is a travesty — and a mystery even to its executors
"In reality, there’s nothing 'lone' about drone warfare. Think of the structure for carrying out Washington’s drone killing program as a multidimensional pyramid populated with hundreds of personnel and so complex that just about no one involved really grasps the full picture."

We Are All Greeks Now
By Chris Hedges
"The Greeks and the U.S. working poor endure the same deprivations because they are being assaulted by the same system -- corporate capitalism."

The Eurozone’s Damaging Deal for Greece
"In the end, after trying every possible tactic, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of Greece threw in the towel and accepted the toughest demands yet made by creditors to extend life support for Greece and keep it in the eurozone."

It’s time to rewrite the Constitution: Why our governments ability to decide war & peace is totally broken
When we go to war with ISIS, Congress does not declare it. When we try to make peace with Iran, Congress refuses

By Marcy Wheeler

How Obama Should Sell the Iran Deal
"The administration should now seek to justify the deal exclusively on narrow national security grounds."

An Iran Nuclear Deal That Reduces the Chance of War

The GOP is the party of warmongers: What its insane overreaction to Obama’s Iran deal really shows

It’s Not Just the NSA—the IRS Is Reading Your Emails Too
By Thor Benson

Call out the neocons: The Iran deal gives Democrats an opportunity — but they may be too timid to seize it

A grand theory of anti-blackness: The unflinching and profound terror in Ta-Nehisi Coates’ “Between The World and Me”

MH-17 Mystery: A New Tonkin Gulf Case?
By Robert Parry
"Like the Tonkin Gulf case, the evidence on the MH-17 case was shaky and contradictory from the start. But, in both cases, U.S. officials confidently pointed fingers at the 'enemy.' President Lyndon Johnson blamed North Vietnam in 1964 and Secretary of State John Kerry implicated ethnic Russian rebels and their backers in Moscow in 2014."

How a weaker Iran got the hegemon to lift sanctions
By Gareth Porter
"That media lens misses the real significance of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which is that Iran succeeded in negotiating an agreement with the United States that upheld its national right to a nuclear program despite the obvious vast disparity in power between the two states."

Here's Why the Huffington Post Is Wrong About Donald Trump
His bid isn't a joke; it's a return on the GOP's investment in extreme politics.

By David Corn
"It's not that Trump is truly a statesman who ought to be regarded as such. But he is a political phenomenon that tell us much about a significant slice of the American public: Republican voters."

35 soul-crushing facts about American income inequality

Hillary Clinton's Glass-Steagall
By Robert Reich

If the GOP tries to sink the Iran deal, it won’t be the first time
In 1980 Carter had a deal with Iran to free the hostages -- his presidential opponent Reagan made a deal of his own

By Thom Hartmann, Alternet
"Republican attempts to sabotage a Democratic president’s deal with Iran are nothing new, however. Just ask Jimmy Carter."

Wipe the Confederacy out now: Southern haters have a sick new lie designed to hold onto Confederate flags, memorials
It's actually the opposite of whitewashing history to finally be honest about slavery, the South and the Civil War

By Musa al-Gharbi

With Washington’s Complicity, Egypt Cracks Down on Critics
"While Egyptians are understandably unnerved by the growing violence, the new power sought by President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi should be subject to greater scrutiny."

The Path Ahead for Palestine
By Dennis Bernstein

US/Israeli/Saudi "Behavior" Problems
By Robert Parry
"In this American land of make-believe, Iran is assailed as the chief instigator of instability in the Middle East. Yet, any sane and informed person would dispute that assessment, noting the far greater contributions made by Israel, Saudi Arabia and, indeed, the United States."

AIPAC: Anti-Iranian Propaganda at Congress
By David Swanson

Snuff Ads: Multimillion Dollar Campaign Tries to Kill Iran Nuke Deal
By Medea Benjamin

Germany’s Destructive Anger
"We’ve heard a lot about how the Greeks feel humiliated. But we’ve heard less about German anger, and we know they are angry."

Austerity will wreck Europe: Greece and the scary new European ultra-nationalism

President Obama Takes On the Prison Crisis
"On Thursday, for the first time in American history, a president walked into a federal prison. President Obama was there to see for himself a small piece of the damage that the nation’s decades-long binge of mass incarceration has wrought."

The South China Sea, in Court
"A courtroom in The Hague has become an important new battleground in the multinational struggle over the resource-rich South China Sea."

Here’s a Way to Control Guns
"For the government to keep buying guns from these companies — purchases meant to ensure public safety — without making demands for change is to squander its leverage."

No, Mr. Netanyahu, Iran Isn’t Trying to Take Over the World and It Isn’t ISIS

"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
