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.

Help Us Remove Condi Rice from the College Football Playoff Committee: We would appreciate your help in our effort to get Condoleeza Rice removed from the College Football Playoff Committee. You can read the email we sent them explaining why this should be done immediately and you will find all the contact information with links you will need using our reference page.

Elizabeth Warren: One Way to Rebuild Our Institutions

Ted Cruz has a very real birther problem: The law is not settled — but the history is
"It is a historical fact (and a fact of law) that mothers did not possess the same right fathers did to grant their children American citizenship when the child was born outside of the United States. This is important."

Vindication for Planned Parenthood
"One after the other, investigations of Planned Parenthood prompted by hidden-camera videos released last summer have found no evidence of wrongdoing. On Monday, a grand jury in Harris County, Tex., went a step further. Though it was convened to investigate Planned Parenthood, it indicted two members of the group that made the videos instead."

Sarah Palin’s feel-bad politics: The dark allure of right-wing nihilism, self-pity and curdled nostalgia for a once-“great” America

The truth about Flint: Kids drank poisoned water because of the GOP’s radical, anti-democratic “reforms”

Wait. Which Party Is Imploding?
The Conversation


Egypt, five years later: A human-rights catastrophe of America’s making
"The U.S. tends to posture about democratic values, but its role in Egypt has always belied this position. Not only was Mubarak, Egypt’s dictator for 30 years, backed by the U.S., but under his rule Egypt was a key destination for prisoners transferred by U.S. authorities for torture and interrogation."

The Fading Two-State Solution
"Israel is moving quickly to establish facts on the ground that preclude a Palestinian state, leaving Palestinians increasingly marginalized and despairing. 'It is starting to look like a de facto annexation,' one American official said."

The religious right exposed: Donald Trump’s speech at Liberty University proves just how gullible evangelical voters are
"Trump doesn’t care about Christianity, and his only religion is self-promotion. The specactcle of Trump pawning himself off as a believer was something to behold,"

American Democracy Down for the Count
Or What Is It the Scandinavians Have That We Don't?

By Ann Jones

Giving Noam Chomsky the platform he deserves: Media only pays attention when he’s uncontroversial, not when he talks about what really matters

Why Donald Trump Keeps Lying About Unemployment
"The facts would not stoke the raw emotions that power Mr. Trump’s candidacy, so he uses lies. What he loses in credibility among detractors he gains in popularity among supporters."

Hillary has nothing to brag about: Her foreign policy record is a disaster
"In the case of Clinton there hasn’t been a major foreign policy decision in the Middle East she pushed for that didn’t end up being a disaster both at home and the countries she advocated meddling in."

The GOP’s vile Planned Parenthood lies have completely fallen apart

Leonard Pitts Jr.: Palin blames Obama for son’s domestic violence incident
By Leonard Pitts, Jr.
"Palin’s willingness to use her own son in that cause is repellent. One reads little actual concern for him — or his girlfriend — in her remarks. And that is sad. What kind of mother looks at her son’s domestic-violence arrest and thinks, political opportunity?"

Israel continues to sow the seeds of discontent
By Jonathan Cook
"Israel's image laundering is directed at western countries that have propped up the occupation -- economically and diplomatically -- for decades. As ever, Israel hopes to persuade outsiders that the occupation is benevolent."

6 national security questions we should be asking our presidential candidates

GOP’s deal with the devil: The donor class will forever regret allying with Trump
"One of the most prominent of Republican elites in the country, who has even been touted as President Obama’s “favorite pundit” (we’re not making this up!), is calling on the donor class to rescue the party from the rabble. Game’s over, voters: The oligarchs will decide this election."

The U.S. Intervention in Libya Was Such a Smashing Success That a Sequel Is Coming
By Glenn Greenwald

Oregon militiamen fell right into the feds’ trap: Sorry, liberals, the government was right to wait before taking them out

The Supreme Court Rules for Common Sense in Electricity Case
"The Supreme Court earlier this week upheld a federal regulation that encourages factories, shopping malls and other users of electricity to reduce their consumption during periods of high demand, like hot summer afternoons. The well-reasoned decision will save consumers money and improve the reliability of the electricity grid."

I have had it with naive Bernie Sanders idealists

The atrocities will continue: No matter who wins the presidency, the Middle East loses

Why Dems pray for a Trump or Cruz win
By Brent Budowsky
"Numerous polls suggest Trump's politics of perpetual insults have created negative ratings so high among general election voters that both Clinton and Sanders could defeat him by epic landslide margins."

‘How Stupid Is Iowa?’
Timothy Egan
"The problem is not that the people of Iowa are stupid. They are not, by most measurements. It’s that Iowa looks nothing like the rest of America. As a result, the winners, more often than not, are nationally unelectable extremists."

The Bernie Sanders revolution is probably doomed from the start

Donald Trump Divides God’s Voters

Everything you need to know about last night’s excruciating GOP debate

A Crazy Establishment Demands "Sanity"
By Robert Parry
"If anything, the neocons and liberal hawks consolidated their power after the Iraq War. By contrast, the foreign policy "realists" and anti-war progressives who warned against the invasion were the ones cast out of any positions of influence. How crazy is that!"

Endless war will destroy us all: The U.S. military is the imperial hammer that sees every problem as a nail

Donald Trump and the ‘Rivers of Blood’
"Thanks, however, to his incendiary comments about immigrants and Muslims, Mr. Trump has moved from being a buffoonish figure on the margins of British consciousness to the center of political debate."

They’re all just this deluded and deranged: Anti-intellectual religious wing-nuts run the GOP

The Bundy fallacy liberals must reject: Why reforming our broken criminal justice system means less violence, not more

They’re still lying about Ronald Reagan: What Trump, Cruz and the GOP field won’t tell you about Reaganomics
"The economic agenda the Republicans are pushing today creates growth that no democratic society would want for its people: highly unstable and channeled into the hands of the wealthy few."

The Obama Theory of Trump
"Open-seat presidential elections are shaped by perceptions of the style and personality of the outgoing incumbent. Voters rarely seek the replica of what they have. They almost always seek the remedy, the candidate who has the personal qualities the public finds lacking in the departing executive."

They really are a bunch of a fascists: The one thing all Trump supporters seem to have in common
"In a fascinating recent poll, a single characteristic emerged as the clearest sign that a voter is a Trump supporter. Contrary to what some might expect, it’s not race, gender, income, age or education level. It’s authoritarianism, clear and simple."

“They see themselves as heroes. Instead people are saying they’re manipulating American politics”: Jane Mayer on the method behind the Koch brothers’ brilliant madness

What’s Our Duty to the People Globalization Leaves Behind?
By Steven Rattner
"Last year, according to the recent figures, our nation added 2.65 million new jobs. Just 30,000 of them were in manufacturing. So much for the widely trumpeted renaissance of Made in America."

The Iraq War’s tragic epilogue: Why America will never truly be able to leave
"History suggests that time is no panacea when Washington attempts to prop up, advise, or build armies."

When ‘Made In Israel’ Is a Human Rights Abuse
"As documented in a new report by Human Rights Watch, Israel’s occupation has grown into a lucrative business, exploited by companies as part of a system that is unlawful and abusive."

Sarah Palin’s American lobotomy: The Republicans keep making us dumber, and not even Stephen Colbert can save us

What Voters Want
By Emma Roller
"Often, seemingly superficial characteristics and split-second judgments can affect voters’ decisions. Another study found that most American presidents are taller than average, and that voters tend to choose taller candidates."

Rush Limbaugh’s pathetic Trump freakout tells you everything you need to know about modern conservatism
"The party of personal responsibility continues to blame everyone except itself for the ascendancy of Donald Trump. This comes as no surprise, given how the GOP collectively lacks the self-awareness to grasp that its years-long strategy of blurting superficial, often racially-tainted patriotic memes, while encouraging pervasive anti-Obama hatemongering over serious policy initiatives."

Bracing for a billionaire bloodbath: Why Bloomberg could make things difficult for Trump — and for America

Former aide faults Sarah Palin for the rise of Donald Trump: “We all should have seen this coming”

What John Kerry won’t ever acknowledge: The U.S. relationship with Saudi Arabia is self-destructive — and even crazy
"While the justification for the U.S.’s relationship with a theocratic, feudal authoritarian absolute monarchy that subjugates women and minorities and executes peaceful dissidents rests on particular discourses of stability and pragmatism, Washington is fully aware the actions of Saudi Arabia and other Gulf regimes actively defy its purported noble goals."

President Obama’s Call to America’s Better Nature
"In his final State of the Union speech, President Obama endeavored on Tuesday to lift Americans above the miasma of a brutally negative presidential campaign to reflect on what the nation has endured and achieved since he took office in the midst of a dire recession."

When the State of the Union Is Strong, but Doesn’t Feel Like It Is

Dear Gov. Snyder: You Have to Go to Jail
"I'm asking everyone who agrees with me to sign on to this petition and call for your arrest."

By Michael Moore

TransCanada Sues the US for Rejecting Keystone XL; Will This Be the New Normal Under TPP?

A Better Standard for the Use of Deadly Force

Religious delusions are destroying us: “Nothing more than man-made contrivances of domination and submission”

Losing my religion for equality
By Jimmy Carter

Crackpots in Cowboy Hats, and in Congress
By Timothy Egan
" The locked-and-loaded crazies in the Oregon high desert are using the same language as Republican legislators who want to take away an American birthright."

Twilight of the imperial age: America and China may not have a planet left to rule

What Hillary Knew about Libya
By Robert Parry

The Pentagon’s Insubordination on Guantánamo
"The stalling at the Defense Department, where officials have used every bureaucratic trick in the book to slow down the release of inmates, is startling, though, and basically amounts to insubordination."

The Dirty Truth About ‘Clean Diesel’
"The nitrogen oxides produced by diesel engines, which are far more popular in Europe than in the United States, are a potent irritant for asthma sufferers. Health officials in Italy also noted increased reports of cardiovascular disease this week."

The Great Forgetting
By Chris Hedges
"America's refusal to fund and sustain its intellectual and cultural heritage means it has lost touch with its past, obliterated its understanding of the present, crushed its capacity to transform itself through self-reflection and self-criticism, and descended into a deadening provincialism. Ignorance and illiteracy come with a cost."

A Redaction Re-Visited: NSA Targeted "The Two Leading" Encryption Chips
By Glenn Greenwald

Oil drives our Israel policy: New government documents reveal a very different history of America and the Middle East
"A knowledge of the foundation of U.S. policy in the Middle East in the postwar years is indispensable to an understanding of current U.S. policies in the Middle East in which oil, Palestine, and Israel play such significant roles."

"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
