Issues We Still Care About

SUPPORT SJ RES 19 - a Joint Senate Amendment 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.

Trumpfeld - a show about nothing

What's new for the 2016 election: Our newly expanding collection of humorous anti-Trump images starting with photo1053 and our interactive page of Trump jokes - all in our Humor section. We also added a page called GOP political whores so you can keep track of Republicans and their enablers who formally trashed Trump but are now endorsing and/or supporting him. We will continue to update this collection. And we invite you to help us do that.

Help Us Remove Condi Rice from the College Football Playoff Committee: We would appreciate your help in our singular 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.

We update topplebush.com weekly with new Humor and commentary (newest listed at the top) that will appeal to our veiwers. You might also enjoy our large selection of progressive political humor, our interactive projects plus our free music downloads. --RJ Crane, editor

It’s time for Democrats to unify: Why even the most idealistic Sanders voter should support Clinton
"In short, anyone who shares the ideals professed by Sanders during this campaign (including Sanders himself) is morally compelled to see that while Clinton may profess a watered down version of those values, Trump embodies their direct antithesis."

The UN’s damning report on Israel and torture: The desperate case of Palestinian youth in the occupied territory

20 Congress members send Obama letter requesting protection of Palestinian children from Israeli abuses

Letting Trump and the GOP self-destruct: Hillary and Democrats have the right strategy by laying low
"Democrats still shouldn’t take anything for granted, but I no longer believe there’s any reason to compete with Trump for airtime. If we’ve learned anything in the last couple of weeks, it’s that Trump will never morph into a sane, pragmatic candidate."

The False Lure of Military Intervention in Syria

Donald Trump’s Fear Factor
By Emma Roller

How Low Can the G.O.P. Go?
By Thomas B. Edsall

How Zika Became a Global Threat

The World’s Disappearing Sand
"Sand is the essential ingredient that makes modern life possible. And we are starting to run out."

Noam Chomsky: America is only a democracy for the 1 percent

Donald Trump’s war with Islam: A campaign rooted in pernicious religious discrimination
"But Trump’s focus is on Muslims exclusively – not radicalized Muslims, but every Muslim person outside the U.S."

8 reasons the Republican Party must dump Trump before it’s too late

Measuring the Trump Effect
By Thomas B. Edsall
"My interviews this week with Pottstown voters in working and middle class white neighborhoods showed almost no support for Trump among women, but steady support among men."

What Does Bernie Sanders Want?
By Elizabeth Williamson

Noam Chomsky: “The Republican Party is becoming a danger to decent human survival”
"The threat of global warming is not instantaneous, though it is dire in the longer term and might escalate suddenly. That we have the capacity to deal with it is not entirely clear, but there can be no doubt that the longer the delay, the more extreme the calamity."

Overcompensation Nation: It’s time to admit that toxic masculinity drives gun violence

The system is failing: Donald Trump’s rise and the erosion of the rule of law
"Just as the media and the elite failed to see Trump and his throng coming, they fail to grasp that his rise to power is a sign of the erosion of the rule of law and our collective faith in all our systems, including the justice system."

The N.R.A.’s Complicity in Terrorism
"Few places on earth make it easier than the United States for a terrorist to buy assault weapons to mow down scores of people in a matter of minutes."

Heading Off the Next Extremist

Decoding Donald Trump
By Andrew Rosenthal
"After all, it matters a great deal what people who want to be president say and do not say, especially at moments like this, after the murder of scores of innocents."

Has Political Fear-Mongering Lost Its Appeal?
"Contrary to what I’d argue has been the single most firmly held conviction about this campaign by observers left and right, a terrorist attack did not help the Republican candidate in the race for president. Indeed, it seems to have weakened him."

Obama Needs to Protect the Iran Deal
"Nevertheless, European banks remain uncomfortable relying on mere words. And there is no vigorous action from the American administration to better facilitate Iran’s access to the global financial system."

The do-nothing-about-guns party: The GOP’s loyalty to the NRA rises above keeping weapons from suspected terrorists

A Nuclear Weapon That America Doesn’t Need
"The Air Force is set next year to accelerate the development of this new nuclear cruise missile. It would carry an upgraded W-80 nuclear warhead and be able to penetrate the world’s most advanced air-defense systems."

Beyond Trump’s threat: The GOP, with help from the left, has been destroying democracy for decades

Mr. Ryan’s Plan to Revert, Regress and Deregulate

The narrative falls apart: Evidence that Omar Mateen was in the closet undermines GOP framing of the Orlando shooting

Is the Sanders Agenda Out of Date?
"But the biggest reason that Mr. Sanders won’t shape the next progressive agenda stems from a little-noticed aspect of his campaign: His policy proposals were consistently out of step with the ideas that have been emerging from progressive think tanks like Demos or the Center for American Progress or championed by his own congressional colleagues."

The Broken Promise of Closing Guantánamo
"The failure to close Guantánamo, where 80 detainees remain, is a shameful stain on Congress, which has hindered efforts to release prisoners and barred the Pentagon from moving those remaining to prisons in the United States."

The Presidency Isn’t a Real-Estate Deal
The skills required to flourish as a property mogul aren’t what you need in the Oval Office.


How could this be legal? A look at the AR-15 assault rifle, the weapon used in the Orlando masscre

Why Do Terrorists Commit Terrorism?
"I found that the perpetrators were generally motivated by a mix of factors, including militant Islamist ideology; dislike of American foreign policy in the Muslim world; a need to attach themselves to an ideology or organization that gave them a sense of purpose; and a “cognitive opening” to militant Islam that often was precipitated by personal disappointment, like the death of a parent."

Thanks for Your Service, but Don't Tell the Kids About It (We Need Them to Enlist)
By Emily Yates, Truthout

A Week for All Time
By Timothy Egan
"In this week of trial and tragedy, Trump showed us how he would govern — by fear, by intimidation, by lies, by turning American against American, by exhibiting all the empathy of a sociopath. Seal this week. Put it in a time capsule. Teach it. History will remember. But come November, will we?"

Donald Trump isn’t fooling women: They see right through him, even if the media can’t

Home Should Not Be a War Zone
"In 2014, 33,599 Americans died from a gunshot wound. From 2001 to 2010, 119,246 Americans were murdered with guns, 18 times all American combat deaths in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan."

Bowing down to Trump: Is there even an iota of courage in the GOP hierarchy?

CIA’s new torture documents: Fresh details of the horrors of “enhanced interrogation techniques”
"But there are a few fresh details contained in the document dump, and they help strengthen the broadly accepted case that the Bush administration’s torture regime was both brutal, slipshod, and ineffective."

The Violence of Forgetting
By Brad Evans and Henry A. Giroux
"Unfortunately, we live at a moment in which ignorance appears to be one of the defining features of American political and cultural life."

Can You Insult Your Way to the White House?
By Emma Roller
"But Mr. Trump’s style of playground humor is appealing to people (specifically, white men) who are feeling that they aren’t in on the joke."

Will Reporters Pay for Donald Trump’s Scotland Trip?
"He wants campaign reporters to pay for a charter to Scotland to open a Trump hotel property. Cost to reporters: $10,000 round trip, plus hotel and restaurant bills, which will probably be racked up at the two Trump-themed venues they’ll be visiting — if anyone signs up."

A crisis we can solve: Denying health care to undocumented immigrants is immoral, unjust and un-American

Congress vs. the States on Guns

Bob Kerrey and the ‘American Tragedy’ of Vietnam

Trump says U.S. should adopt Israel’s racial profiling model, after Huckabee applauds Israel’s anti-Muslim policies

The press has not done its job: 3 ways the media has failed our democracy in covering the election

Bush and Cheney belong in jail: America must answer for its illegal war on terror

The Many Scandals of Donald Trump: A Cheat Sheet
By David A. Graham
"The breadth of Trump’s controversies is truly yuge, ranging from allegations of mafia ties to unscrupulous business dealings, and from racial discrimination to alleged marital rape."

What Donald Trump Gets Wrong About Orlando

Andrew Cuomo’s Anti-Free Speech Move on B.D.S.

We Must Understand Corporate Power to Fight It
By Chris Hedges
"The reach and effectiveness of corporate propaganda dwarfs even the huge effort undertaken by Adolf Hitler and Stalin. The layers of deception are sophisticated and effective. News is state propaganda. Elaborate spectacles and forms of entertainment, all of which ignore reality or pretend the fiction of liberty and progress is real, distract the masses."

Down and Out and Voteless in Ohio
"The attempts by Republican lawmakers to suppress the turnout of Democratic-leaning voters in the 2016 election have reached shameless levels in Ohio — a swing state where it turns out that even homeless citizens have been blocked from exercising their right to vote."

Orlando and the History of Anti-Gay Violence
"SUNDAY’s mass murder in Orlando, Fla., was, among other grim superlatives, the worst instance of anti-gay violence in American history. But it was also far from the first. In fact, mass violence and the history of gay liberation go hand in hand."

Nobody needs an AR-15: The Orlando massacre teaches us (again) that we must ban semi-automatic human killing machines

Big Money Rearranges Its Election Bets

In the Heartland, Trouble for Mr. Trump, and Opportunity for Mrs. Clinton

Donald Trump’s Mormon Problem
"IN the fight to fend off Donald J. Trump’s conquest of the Republican Party, there has been no fiercer faction this year than the Mormons."

The real masters of the universe: The astounding influence lawyers have on U.S. government and policy

The GOP screwed themselves: The brilliant gerrymander that gave Republicans the Congress — and created Donald Trump
"Obama had it backward: it’s the Republican mapmakers who gerrymandered our democracy so effectively after the GOP’s historic 2010 victory who have made it hard for the voters to affect elections."

The Senate’s Confirmation Shutdown
"The Senate Republicans, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, refuse to act because they want to deny Mr. Obama another seat on the court, regardless of the nominee’s qualifications."

Fascism is rising in the U.S. and Europe — and Donald Trump is the face of this disturbing new reality

No, He’s Not Hitler. And Yet ...
By Justin E.H. Smith
"History seems to be a pointless parade of insignificant events until we shape it into something that has significance for us, until we build myths out of it, until we begin using it to make up stories."

Donald Trump uses Alex Jones as an actual news source

Anti-P.C. warriors have no idea what they’re talking about, and now there’s data to prove it
"The data suggests that like so much in our changing society, your perspective depends on where you sit. And one key source of this divide is perceptions of continued discrimination in our society."

Noam Chomksy: There’s nothing free about free trade agreements
"Chomsky points out that “the so-called free-trade agreements are not free-trade agreements. To a larger extent they’re not even trade agreements. These are investor rights agreements.”

Why Republicans Won’t Renounce Trump
By Andrew Rosenthal
"Far too many Republicans share this kind of racism and have for a long time. Trump has just dispensed with dog whistles and revels in his bigotry instead."

Muhammad Ali: Never the White Man’s Negro
"The heart of the champion is this: One never repudiates one’s deepest values, one never gives in."

Donald Trump is a chicken-hawk and a hypocrite: The real story about Vietnam and the draft
"Each draft board was given a number it had to meet from those in the 1-A category. That meant each deferment shifted the burden onto a smaller group of potential draftees."

Trump University was a “scam from beginning to end”: The most damning allegations against the “school”
"For years, allegations of fraud and deception have dogged Trump University, the now-defunct seminar program founded by Donald Trump that is the subject of several ongoing lawsuits, including a $40 million civil suit brought by Schneiderman in New York and a federal lawsuit filed in California by disgruntled former students."

The GOP owns Trump University’s sleaze: Republicans have been tolerant of con artists for decades
"The governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, and the state’s current attorney general, Ken Paxton, are now under fire for taking measures to protect Trump from paying legal or political penalties for perpetuating this fake university grift."

"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
