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.

“A turning point for Obama”: How the president learned to love the national security state

Hey progressives, Hillary isn’t the enemy: I’m a Sanders supporter, but I’m sick of Bernie Bros’ Clinton Derangement Syndrome
"The inevitable has finally happened: Bernie Sanders supporters are beginning to openly proclaim that, if Hillary Clinton defeats their champion in the upcoming Democratic presidential primaries, they will not support her in the subsequent election."

We’ve been lied to our whole lives: 9 Thanksgiving myths you were taught — and the actual history

Pray With Your Feet
By Chris Hedges
"Carrying out sustained acts of civil disobedience is the only option left to defy the corporate state, says Packard, who over the years has been arrested at an Occupy Wall Street protest and other demonstrations."

After Paris Attacks, Vilifying Refugees
"Predictably, the harrowing scenes of carnage in Paris on Friday are fueling calls to shut down borders and halt the resettlement of Syrian refugees in Western nations."

Rush Limbaugh’s “True Story of Thanksgiving” is a lie-filled load of stuffing that turns villains into victims

The renewable energy source that’s more dangerous than coal
"Wood is a fuel, meaning it must be burned to produce electricity, which releases pollution."

Stop smiling at this liar: Benjamin Netanyahu will not get away with this much longer
"Netanyahu is, after all, a man who has dedicated his political career to destroying the two-state solution."

Vindication for Steven Salaita: A victory for academic freedom in a textbook case of “the Israel exception”

America is still paying for its wars: The enduring catastrophes of Iraq and Afghanistan

Are Muslims more intolerant then Jews, Hindus, and Christians?
By Michael Nguyen

Both sides of the knife: When we speak about Palestinian violence, we ought to do so in the context of “the ongoing and daily oppression faced by some 4 million people”
"Without hope for a better tomorrow, the violence is likely to continue. And with each new Israeli reprisal, the violence is likely to get worse and become more widespread."

America, the Not So Promised Land
"ONE of the great myths Americans have about their country is that everyone wants to come here. Advocates and enemies of immigration share this assumption, which dates at least as far back as the turn of the 20th century."

We brought this on ourselves: After Paris, it is time to square our “values” with our history

How Paris could actually tear us apart: Inside the dangerous collision of politics & fear
"It would be a relief to quietly mourn the dead, but that train has sadly left the station, thanks to all the people who decided that the attacks were a perfect opportunity to exploit people’s grief and fear."

Let’s not get it wrong this time: The terrorists won after 9/11 because we chose to invade Iraq, shred our Constitution
"Terrorism is a tactic in which the primary objective is to produce fear, rather than direct harm. Terrorist attacks are, first and foremost, psychological operations designed to alter behavior amongst the terrorized in a way that the actors believe will serve them."

We created Islamic extremism: Those blaming Islam for ISIS would have supported Osama bin Laden in the ’80s

Here come the Paris truthers: Paranoia, the American right, and the missing complexity from our terrorism debate
"France was a colonial power in the Middle East and Africa for a century; it has boots on the ground in West Africa and its war planes have been bombing ISIS strongholds in Iraq and Syria. As shocking and terrible as Friday’s attacks were, there really is no mystery as to why they happened; they did not come out of the blue."

How Doctors Helped Drive the Addiction Crisis
By Richard A. Friedman
"So what is killing middle-aged white Americans? Much of the excess death is attributable to suicide and drug and alcohol poisonings. Opioid painkillers like OxyContin prescribed by physicians contribute significantly to these drug overdoses."

By Jeremy Malcolm

Ben Carson’s hilarious, ridiculous, completely broken history: A rare window into the extreme right’s fact-challenged worldview

Ben Carson is about to crack: He thinks his biography is the Bible — immune to fact-checking

The Risks of Assisting Evolution
"If researchers can figure out the right combination of genes, they’ll manufacture a mosquito resistant to malaria, which could save hundreds of thousands of lives every year. But geneticists, bioethicists and others who understand the implications of this new technology are apprehensive."

It’s time to withdraw from the Middle East: Military intervention is only making terrorism worse. It’s time for a radical pivot

This is what ISIS wants: How the right’s bloodlust plays right into the terrorists’ hands

After Paris, right-wing media launches new war on reason, reality

The Misuse of Interpol’s Database
"Fugitive alerts issued by Interpol, the international law enforcement clearinghouse, can make it hard for fugitives to slip across borders. But the group’s “red notice” database, which can be reviewed by authorities across the world to identify people facing prosecution, is frequently used by authoritarian governments to control and persecute dissidents, human rights activists and journalists."

The GOP is living in a fantasy world: Every single Republican’s economic plan is made of wishes and fairy dust

Socialism is suddenly hot! The unions show signs of life! Is “class consciousness” coming to America at last?

Ben Carson’s hilarious, ridiculous, completely broken history: A rare window into the extreme right’s fact-challenged worldview

60 Minutes Stands With Secret Keepers Against Those Who Expose Them
By Jim Naureckas
"Unfortunately, elite journalists all too often have a tendency to identify not with those who expose official secrets but with those who persecute those who expose them—epitomized by Time‘s Michael Grunwald writing that he 'can’t wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out Julian Assange' of WikiLeaks."

Hold the Keystone XL bubbly: Our fossil fuel addiction is as strong as ever
"For one thing, a Keystone pipeline is already up and running. The proposal that Obama nixed would merely have added an extension to it. And TransCanada, the pipeline owner, is looking for other ways to get tar-sands oil to market. Oil remains a smart investment, if you strip away the true cost of burning it."

"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
