The Decline and Fall of the U.S. Empire

by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J. S. Davies In 2004, journalist Ron Susskind quoted a Bush White House advisor, reportedly Karl Rove, as boasting, “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality.” He dismissed Susskind’s assumption that public policy must be rooted in “the reality-based community.” “We’re history’s actors,” the advisor told him, “…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” Sixteen years later, the U.S. wars and war crimes launched by the Bush administration have [...]

COVID, Climate & Capital Crisis: Fascism is Built from Above and Below

by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-Los Angeles https://antiracist.org/fascism-is-built-from-above-and-below/ Those inclined to heave a sigh of relief and let down our guard about the threat of fascism because of Trump's failed Beer-Hall-Putsch of a coup attempt on January 6, or the "peaceful transition of power" on January 20, or by the eventual tracking and arrests of many of those who broke into the Capitol, or by the prospect that having been impeached a second time, Trump himself may be convicted and prevented from holding further public office, need to [...]

Inside America’s Doll’s House

Everybody Knows the Fight Was Fixed © by Ed Curtin (and Leonard Cohen) [Excerpt] http://edwardcurtin.com/everybody-knows-the-fight-was-fixed/ At the end of Henrik Ibsen’s classic play, A Doll’s House, Nora, the aggrieved wife, leaves her husband’s house and all the illusions that sustained its marriage of lies. She chooses freedom over fantasy.  She will no longer be played with like a doll but will try to become a free woman – a singular one.  “There is another task I must undertake first. I must try and educate myself,” she tells [...]

Will the Biden Team Be Warmongers or Peacemakers?

by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J S Davies Congratulations to Joe Biden on his election as the next president of the US!

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, [...]

If Trump steals the election, the USA will become more of a tragedy than it already has been under his corrupt horrible misrule.

Letter to the Editor

Letter to the Editor from Ray Jones Still alive and well??? ...  “Trump still does not comprehend the seriousness or the urgency of the health and economic crises facing working families,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Saturday evening in a joint statement. “We’re disappointed that instead of putting in the work to solve Americans’ problems, the President instead recently chose to stay on his luxury golf course to announce unworkable, weak and narrow policy announcements to slash the unemployment benefits that [...]

Mumia Abu-Jamal: Children of the Corn

CHILDREN OF THE CORN {col.writ.7/13/20} © 2020 by Mumia Abu-Jamal   When we think of politicians, we too often see them as great, even mighty figures, seemingly larger than life. That’s because of how the media projects them - and far too often, protects them. But in times like these, times of plague, crises, massive failures of institutions, and yes, of death, we begin to see them differently. For some, the spell is broken. We see them as they are, flawed beings, driven by ambition and hunger [...]
