Sat, 21 Jan 2017 23:51:51 UTCScience tells us one story and religion another. Neither is complete. Neither offers absolutes. Together they offer profound new questions. In union, they can give us a depth of understanding that leads to a new level of comfort and assurance.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 23:50:51 UTCThe black bloc, a group of anarchists who infiltrate protests and wreak havoc, might be paid by financiers close to Trump, some say. Their violence of property would provide a convenient excuse for Trump to, say, outlaw all public demonstrations in D.C.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 21:48:53 UTCAround the United States, massive demonstrations have protested the inauguration of Donald Trump, but there is a danger that the anti-Trump forces could block the positive elements of his message, writes Robert Parry
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 21:23:52 UTCThe night before Donald Trump was sworn in as president, the New York Times dropped a bombshell: intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been examining intercepted communications and financial transactions in an investigation of possible contacts between Trump associates and Russian officials.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 20:44:06 UTCAny conception that once he actually assumed office a "presidential" Trump would emerge was quickly dispelled by the tenor of his remarks. He glared, he ranted. He had only one tone of voice: an angry shout. The speech gave a jolt, signaling to the world that the new American president is an out-of-control megalomaniac.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 19:41:17 UTCThe problem starts at the top. The president-elect has thrown out decades of precedent by refusing to release his tax returns or disentangle himself from his business connections. Now his Republican allies in Congress seem content to permit Cabinet nominees to do the same.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 18:25:01 UTCThe ongoing contest between the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders wings of the Democratic Party continues to divide Democrats. It's urgent Democrats stop squabbling. The future is bleak unless the Party radically reforms itself. If Republicans do well in the 2018 midterms, they'll control Congress and the Supreme Court for years. If they continue to hold most statehouses, they could entrench themselves for a generation.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 17:54:17 UTCThe Age of Trump is an unsettling time for undocumented farmworkers whose labor has helped make California's "wine country" rich but are now facing threats of draconian arrests and deportations, reports Dennis J Bernstein.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 14:00:51 UTCThere are sister marches all over the world. Share your observations, thoughts, photos, whether you are there or not.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 13:56:00 UTC"We can speculate that some of these progressive elements view Trump with disdain for all the same reasons those outside the Deep State disdain him, but their decision tree is simple: if you want to rid America's Deep State of toxic neocon-neo liberalism before it destroys the nation, you hold your nose and go with Trump because he's the only hope we have".
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 13:53:58 UTCA protest against womens rights activists who callously disregard the victims of Obama and Hillary's human rights atrocities throughout the world.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 13:52:00 UTCIn a recent interview with Charlie Rose, on at least two separate occasions, Sen. Bernie Sanders called Donald Trump "A very strange man." I don't believe that he was saying this in the sense that many on the left would assume, i.e. that Trump is simply a narcissistic, self-promoting con man and buffoon.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 13:50:07 UTCOne person's epitaph for democracy who was raised in an America better than this and where government was respected and continuously improved not targeted for destruction from the inside.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 13:45:29 UTCAn American president has become a cartoon hero or villain. Like Obama, Trump is an inconsequential yet lurid target for worshippers and detractors to unload emotions. As we rejoice or rage at this figurehead, the Military Banking Complex will continue to serve the elites at our expense.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 05:28:12 UTCEven harder times are coming. Trump's administration is planning deep government cuts that will hurt millions of Americans. You may be excited about his victory now, but you're facing some big disappointments in the coming months and years.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 04:19:59 UTCOn the eve of the Trump Inauguration, a peace veteran reflects on the militarism of the outgoing Obama Administration, and its acceptance by partisan apologists while the peace movement was being marginalized for eight years.
Sat, 21 Jan 2017 02:07:58 UTCRussia has always wanted peace. But they are not going to play a game with the Masters of the Universe that has Trump as the good guy and the Congress, CIA, etc., as the bad guy as a negotiating ploy. That is how they see it. They do not regard this circus as real.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 23:27:13 UTCThe entire political edifice in the US has insulated itself from the will, desires, and needs of the people. Now Trump says the politicians will be accountable to the people. This, of course, would mean a big drop in their security in office and in their income and wealth.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 22:39:55 UTCTrump will be the entertainer-president. The question is: do we really want the most powerful man in the world to be an entertainer? Or an overblown egomaniac? Or a totally self-absorbed narcissist? A man who knows nothing and believes that he can solve everything? This is a dangerous world. From today on, it will be a lot more dangerous.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 22:08:53 UTCCost cutting would mean reducing the incomes of drug companies, doctors, and insurance companies -- the big winners under the current system. It seems unlikely the Republicans will go this route. They are more likely to restore a version of the pre-ACA situation, in which many more people are uninsured and most workers know that their insurance is only as secure as their job.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 21:32:06 UTCIt should be obvious that the Logan Act is antithetical to free speech and other vital liberties. The law provides for up to three years in prison for "any citizen of the United States" who -- without authorization from the U.S. government -- "directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government."
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 20:43:02 UTCTrump and his surrogates constantly claim a "landslide" victory that never happened and tear into critics who note that this emperor has no clothes. There is an ugly, authoritarian tenor to Trump's obsession with mandates and legitimacy. His overreactions are unsettling, even frightening.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 20:16:02 UTCOur country is about to leave on a new voyage. It is wartime and the destination is secret.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 20:10:01 UTCThere is just one big problem with Trump's plan to make America great again: Big government, which is what brings countries down rather than lift them up. Big government oppresses and suppresses people. It's a gigantic tic sucking the lifeblood out of the private sector. Big government equals little people.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 17:52:31 UTCWith subpoena-wielding investigators on this beat, here's a suggestion: The gumshoes ought to talk to an American from Belarus named Sergei Millian, who has boasted of close ties to Trump and who has worked with an outfit the FBI suspected of being a Russian intelligence front.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 16:53:55 UTCOops. Did President Barack Obama acknowledge that the extraordinary propaganda campaign to blame Russia for helping President-elect Donald Trump become president has more holes in it than a sieve?
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 16:21:23 UTCThe news is full of mis and disinformation regarding the inauguration of D. J. Trump. A report circulating in the Kremlin today says President Putin has just received an emergency personal message from President-elect Donald Trump that, in part, says "I may not live through week," but adds, "If I do, I'll get even with these bastards and everyone will win!"
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 16:20:30 UTCWho should rule the country? Smart men? The Constitution says a person who is natural citizen, age 35, with 14 years of residency can be president. Being a businessman is no more qualifying than being a community organizer. Businesspersons are motivated by profit, but government is about maximizing the general welfare. And being a businessman does not guarantee success in government.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 16:19:29 UTCThe greatest adventure is having a friend. Everything on this Earth has this potential, there are no exceptions. Our senses are wonderfully tuned so we may find another to enhance our lives. Unmistakably there is no better use for your nose, our touch, eyesight, and ears. It takes just one look at this picture and poem.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 16:10:41 UTCGreg Palast proves election 2016 was stolen via CrossCheck. Documentary is must-see for the nation. Our election system is fundamentally broken.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 15:24:35 UTCToday's the day. I can't help but think of this as a combination of idiocracy, incompetencocracy, clownocracy, buffoonocracy-- let alone to think about the frightening fascist, 1930's Germany echoing patterns.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 14:52:49 UTCAnalysis of the Politics of Hope in the Age of Donald Trump The United States stands at the endpoint of a long series of attacks on democracy, and the choices faced by the American public today point to the divide between those who are committed to democracy and those who are not
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 13:59:56 UTC33 years ago, Ronald Reagan was elected President in large part because of his TV ad, "It's morning in America." "It's morning again in America, and under the leadership of President Reagan, our country is prouder and stronger and better." For many Americans, the inauguration of Donald Trump foretells a period of darkness, "It's midnight in America."
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 03:11:53 UTCPharma marketed opioids for every possible affliction from headaches and lower back pain to non-pain conditions like depression, divorce and boredom, reported Bloomberg. IMMPACT, a Pharma-funded lobbying group even privately met with federal regulators to facilitate new opioid approvals.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 02:07:43 UTCThe huge corporate tax cuts and military buildup Trump is pushing will give congressional Republicans a rationale to cut Medicare and Social Security, in order to avoid bigger budget deficits. All told, Trump's tweet tantrum reveals a great deal about the man who's soon to be president of the United States. None of it inspires confidence.

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 23:45:01 UTCThe Jan 10 attack in the Afghan city of Kandahar on UAE diplomats has put once again the focus on terror financing and money transfers from the Gulf to the Pak-based militant groups.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 23:31:40 UTCThousands of Palestinians were killed in the Gaza Strip alone, mostly in the Israeli wars of 2008-9, 2012 and 2014. Although thousands of children and civilians were killed and wounded in Gaza and the rest of the Occupied Territories and, despite international outcries against Israel's violations of international law, there is yet to be a single conviction in Israeli courts.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 22:48:39 UTCWashington's plan for Russia is no different than its plan for Syria. Both countries will be chopped up into smaller bite-size enclaves eliminating the possibility of a strong nationalist government rising up and resisting Washington's relentless exploitation and repression. It's divide and conquer writ large.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 22:15:34 UTCResearchers into the causes of President Kennedy's assassination and the 9/11 attacks hold an advantage over most others in deciphering news about national security intrigues that rely on dubious evidence
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 21:54:35 UTCBy failing to tell the hard truth about Establishment wrongdoing, The New York Times -- along with other mainstream U.S. media outlets -- has destabilized American democracy, reports Robert Parry.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 21:08:14 UTCAccording to "The Saker" the mission of the Russian armed forces is to defend Russia & "The specific political objective given to the Russian military is quite simple: to deter or repel any attack against Russia". What exactly is the American military's mission? In Iraq the American soldier was told Saddam Hussein had WMD's, the primary reason given for the invasion. None were found. Thus the US military mission was bogus.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 20:35:30 UTCIt is disappointing to see the left-of-center crowd performing as if on cue as faithful servants of the ruling elite. If a country ever needed a real left-wing, the US surely does. The easiest way for a president to "lead" is to accommodate the agendas of the powerful interest groups. Is this what the left wants Trump to do?
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 20:33:31 UTCSeventy years ago president Harry Truman signed the National Security Act into law, a decision even he came to regret. We could say the rest is history, except that it is decidedly not. With a new White House occupant in place, Aussie writer Greg Maybury explores herein why this isn't the case.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 20:32:54 UTCThe bulk of the American public wallows in the myth of "exceptionalism" as the world looks on.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 20:31:09 UTCAs changemakers, the maxim we operate from is: how can we generate the most amount of good with the resources we have? And by good we normally mean things like ending suffering, and helping others have better lives. To do this we are looking for tipping points. Variables that we can influence, that will have further positive effects. But in doing this, we risk changing the very nature of that culture.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 19:27:33 UTCImagine if Sanders had taken up Green presidential candidate Jill Stein's offer to step aside and let him run for president on the Green ticket. He'd have won handily and today would be an entirely different scene, writes TCBH! journalist Dave Lindorff in this little fantasy from an alternate universe somewhere.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 18:35:00 UTCAs long as the Israeli and the Palestinian publics are led by leaders who do not promote the peace process along these lines and have different political agendas not necessarily consistent with a two-state solution, the public will remain in the dark and to a great extent become complacent.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 16:10:13 UTCMore than 100 Democratic and Republican former attorneys general and officials condemned the prosecution of Siegelman as politically-inspired prosecutorial misconduct. Yet Obama did nothing. By doing nothing for Siegelman, Obama demonstrated to every Democrat that they were on their own if they won elections in Republican political strongholds.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 16:05:11 UTCMany Americans find themselves caught up in a troubled state of mind, possessing a great degree of uncertainty as to what is going to happen when this next administration and its leaders takes charge of this government; and how their lives are going to be affected.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 15:52:30 UTCIndia is still reeling from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's sudden, arbitrary removal of 86% of all cash in circulation on Nov. 8, 2016. While this "demonetization" scheme has disrupted lives and businesses across all classes, the rural and semirural population has been hardest hit. Reports of developing famine have emerged. India's opposition parties are weak, corrupt, and impotent to stop this colossal man-made disaster.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 15:43:14 UTCDonald Trump was right. The election was rigged. What Trump got wrong (and, boy, does he get things wrong) is that the rigging worked in his favor.

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 15:41:09 UTCObama's 'Justice' Dept. last night rejected Leonard Peltier's clemency petition. All justice-minded people should petition Obama to act on this last possible day to reverse that decision and do the right thing, freeing this Native American activist, whose own prosecutor is calling for his release. ACT NOW!

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 13:43:59 UTCThese lawsuits are about PCB's "Just the name Monsanto inspires terrifying images of organically mutated super vegetables with a potential for causing sickness and death. It has been a hotbed of debate for the past decade, despite federal government support from various agencies. The giant seemed unstoppable" up til now. This isn't about GMO farming but the legal foundation for accountability could come out of these lawsuits
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 06:19:49 UTCTrump's entire career as a luxury property developer and brand-name marketer of himself has been built on broken promises to workers, routine scamming of suppliers and partners, blatant self-dealing, crony capitalism and lies.

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 02:59:01 UTCThe movie 'Snowden' by Oliver Stone masterfully exposes the NSA's comprehensive gathering of electronic communications all over the world, and in the US. While 'Snowden' is to be commended for the forceful advocacy of civil liberties, & unaccountable national security state encroachments upon these liberties, the movie fails to take into account the deeper layers of the global-control system the NSA is monitoring.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 02:37:42 UTCIn its publicly announced regime change war against Syria, Canada is a strong supporter of externally supported and orchestrated terrorism and destabilization on the non-belligerent, pluralist country led by President al Assad's secular, democratically elected government.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 01:51:57 UTCBarely a day goes by without Trump attacking, threatening or seeking to delegitimize or intimidate someone in the press. Even the best journalist can get a story wrong but the sheer magnitude and intensity of Trump's attacks against the press are extraordinary and dangerous to democracy.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 01:14:05 UTCThe language of the commutation appears to rule out any future legal proceeding against Manning in either civilian or military courts, since it covers all 20 charges for which she was convicted and sentenced. Neither incoming President Donald Trump nor the Republican-controlled Congress has the legal power to overturn the commutation.

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 23:37:29 UTCThe commutation of Chelsea Manning's sentence cannot be looked at in a vacuum. President Obama, while commendably showing her mercy, also oversaw a justice department that prosecuted more whistleblowers than all other administrations combined, while casting an unmistakable chill over investigative reporting and press freedom.
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 22:27:46 UTCRepublicans vow to repeal Obamacare, but President-elect Trump has injected confusion by claiming that the replacement will provide health insurance for all. But many health experts fear what comes next, reports Dennis J Bernstein.
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 20:19:56 UTCWhy did the FBI seem to favor pursuing Hillary Clinton's emails over tracking down whatever could be learned about Russia's involvement in our election? why did FBI Director Comey fail to take action when he had in his hands the dossier ex-MI6 intelligence operative Christopher Steele had assembled on rumors that Russia possessed incriminating evidence on Trump's business dealings and private life?
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 18:08:44 UTCExtending health care insurance to 20 million people was a really big deal and an important driver for the ACA. Arguably an even bigger deal was providing security to people who already had insurance. But providing security to the nation's workers is obviously not the Trump-Ryan agenda.
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 17:07:41 UTCThe CIA serves no American purpose, only the private purposes of the ruling elites, who are the real deplorables who have used corrupt Western governments to solidify all income and wealth in a few greedy hands.
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 16:41:20 UTCNow something completely different, less political, more spiritual, although everything is connected, also politic and spirituality should be more connected with each other.

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 15:49:28 UTCIn a wide-ranging speech that went from global angst to China's new normal, Chinese President Xi Jinping sounded all the right notes that global capital needed to hear; protectionism is like "locking oneself in a dark room," and "no one is a winner in a trade war." He delved into the necessity of peace in Syria, and the perverse effects of the absence of financial regulation.

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 02:09:51 UTCCompare Chelsea Manning's treatment with General Petreaus, who leaked top secret information so his mistress could write his biography. Petreaus didn't spend a second behind bars. Manning was a whistle-blower who acted to inform the public about the dirty underbelly of US diplomacy and suspect military actions.
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 00:38:26 UTCMuch like the fabricated universe in Peter Weir's 1998 film The Truman Show, in which a man's life is the basis for an elaborately staged television show aimed at selling products and procuring ratings, the political scene in the United States has devolved over the years into a carefully calibrated exercise in how to manipulate, polarize, propagandize and control a population.

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 23:59:38 UTCI find few encouraging signs among the generations now in ascendance -- but I do see a fire and an openness to genuine change in some of the younger generations, including my children. If we can hold on until it's their time, if we can shore up enough fragments against the ruins until they can shape the world, there might be hope. We owe them that.
Tue, 17 Jan 2017 22:30:12 UTCWhen a majority of CIA officers are sitting fat and happy in Langley, Virginia, there's a problem. They are doing the American taxpayer a disservice.

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 22:04:03 UTCPresident Obama has commuted Chelsea Manning's sentence, so she will be released May 17, after serving about seven years in jail. I found out from an email announcement and instantly, tears welled in my eyes.

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 19:45:39 UTCIt appears that WTO rules directly conflict with expansion of any public services not carved out from their rules in writing, especially single payer healthcare, raising questions as to whether there is a cover up going on by politicians and the insurance and drug industries, creating a false impression that the changes taking place are reversible by voting. Soon they wont be.

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 01:17:30 UTCThe obsession with Trump is a cover for many of those calling themselves "left/liberal," as if to claim political decency. They are not "left," neither are they especially "liberal." when will a genuine movement of opposition arise? Angry, eloquent, all-for-one-and-one-for all. Until real politics return to people's lives, the enemy is not Trump, it is ourselves.
Mon, 16 Jan 2017 23:03:04 UTCThe incoming Trump administration is considering evicting the White House press corps from the press room inside the White House and moving them -- and news conferences -- to a conference center or to the Old Executive Office Building. The Trump administration is intent on neutering the White House press corps. If it happens it will be another step toward neutering our democracy.
