Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action Los Angeles https://antiracist.org/between-the-devil-and-the-deep-blue-sea/ This piece was written after midnight on last Thursday. As I wrote, the election of a president had still not as yet been accomplished, even though a clear and insurmountable majority of all the votes cast for the office has been won by one of the two major candidates. The election was finally called for Biden on Saturday by the media, but Trump has refused to concede, declared himself the winner, is bringing suit over his allegations of fraud, [...]

Vote like your life depends on it

by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-L.A. If you haven't voted yet by mail or in early in-person voting, it's not too late! The on-line registration deadline to vote in November in CA has passed, but California does allow voter registration and casting a provisional ballot at polling places right up to Election Day, Tuesday Nov. 3.  In California, where Biden-Harris are a foregone conclusion, the presidential ballot is the only place where you will see third-party candidates on the general election ballot because CA's "open-primary" for the top [...]

Mumia Abu-Jamal: Disaster at the Heart of Empire

Disaster at the Heart of Empire © 2020 by Mumia Abu-Jamal, 10/14/20   As Americans slink toward the elections, a sense of disquiet haunts the land.   It's a feeling of heightened caution, the shadow of fear radiating from a proto-fascist government, one riddled with disease, the fruit not just of the coronavirus, but of unease, unwellness, a mind burdened by weight.   This must be what fascism feels like: Deep, gnawing distrust of government institutions, the scent of corruption, born of crony capitalism, where everything and [...]

Trump, GOP Stack the Supreme Court, Federal Judiciary

As we went to press, the Republican-controlled Senate ratified Trump’s third nomination to the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett, a hard right religious reactionary who has opposed the Affordable Care Act, Roe v. Wade abortion rights, ruled repeatedly in favor of cops and prison guards in abuse cases, and testified that global warming is a controversial political issue. She was one of the lawyers who worked on Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court decision that ended the Florida vote count and allowed Bush to steal the 2000 [...]
