The Power of the People is the Force of Life

The Power of the People is the Force of Life by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-LA/People Against Racist Terror (ARA-LA/PART) I was sent the following link to a piece worth reading by Henry Giroux: A searing and penetrating essay by Henry Giroux: https://truthout.org/articles/racist-violence-cant-be-separated-from-the-violence-of-neoliberal-capitalism/ Giroux is a powerful critic of fascist trends based on white supremacy and capitalism. But I don't know exactly why he often has a failure of nerve, or of something, when he draws towards solutions. For example in this piece, after the searing indictment, he [...]

IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST

Donald Trump Minimizing and Sugarcoating Coronavirus Perils! By Ralph Nader Donald Trump can’t fake his way through the coronavirus. It’s spreading and doesn’t respond to his delusions. Donald is flailing, failing, fibbing, stumbling, and scapegoating. With the stock market collapsing and the economy shaking, Donald fears defeat in November. Trump is a daily clear and present danger and he is the worst person to handle the COVID-19 crisis. Last weekend, Trump and Mike Pence met with Brazilian officials at Mar-a-Lago, after which Brazilian President Bolsonaro’s press secretary [...]

Letter to the Editor: Bernie, Stop Attacking Venezuela

Dear friends and Bernie Sanders Supporters, What follows is my response to the Bernie campaign asking for financial support...which I have been giving...but will discontinue until he changes his rhetoric ( and hopefully his position) attacking Venezuela.  We cannot afford another war mongering president ready to support destructive US policies and invasions.  Repeating corporate media lies supporting the destabilization of another sovereign country is a very very disturbing thing for any candidate.  Maybe it just goes with the Democrat label...the other war party of two war parties [...]

Bernie Sanders Seeking US Presidency Again in 2020

Bernie Sanders Again Seeking the US Presidency, in 2020 by Bella De Soto But wait, how Socialist is Bernie Sanders, again fully pledged to the Democratic Party! He’s now promoting bringing in all the young folks that have been hard at work like in the DSA-Democratic Socialists of America, inspired by his earlier run in 2016. However, this was a result of the collective frustration and led down when he annexed himself to the Democratic Party! This synopsis is rather short for now, but lets just wait [...]

Viking Economics: A Review

Viking Economics:  How the Scandinavians Got It Right—and How We Can, Too by George Lakey Reviewed by Jeffrey Hirsch In a brief look at America currently, we might ask, “Why do we have a president as incompetent, vicious and unqualified as Donald Trump?” But to look at Donald Trump in isolation is a big mistake. CBS gave him almost two billion dollars  in free air time running up to the 2016 election because Donald Trump’s histrionics increased viewership, and thus advertising profits, enormously. We are getting close [...]

Running Green in Congressional District 13

Running Green in D13: Tax the rich and stop the wars by Ann Garrison, June 26, 2018 In California’s top-two primary system, only the top two vote getters advance to the general election, meaning that only two names will be on the ballot for each race in November. Since California is a very blue state, that often means that two Democrats advance, as in the Senate race between incumbent Dianne Feinstein, the anti-Trump candidate, and former State Senate President Kevin de León, the more-anti-Trump-than-Feinstein candidate. However, three [...]

Letter to the Editor: Enough! with “Ultra-Leftism”

Dear Editor: I’ve been tempted to write more than once before, but your “Editorial Commentary” graphic in the January issue moves me finally to say Enough! with what I would call ultra-leftism in the current epoch. If at this late date, a year into President Trump, the editors of Change-Links do not see that there is indeed some “difference between Democrats and Republicans,” then you and I are truly inhabiting different planets. The Democrats are not perfect. They are collectively far from perfect. But we would be [...]

Stolen Election – FRAUD!

Election Stolen Again by David Troy Stolen before, yes. Skull and bones Papa B. Brazen George, backed by his father's CIA and the US military, strongmanned over anyone with oil under them. Enter from stage rear trap door – Another stolen election. With another strong man. But this strong man wants more than oil. He may tread on many in the US-the wrong color, religion, or who knows, because he changes his mind a lot. He was installed by his own and other corporate and .01% money. [...]
