Socialist Party Taps Stewart Alexander for President (tags)
Alexander, who prides himself on his working-class background, maintains that the Socialist Party historically has been ?the true representative of the Left,? a point he hopes to drive home not only to disillusioned progressives, but to millions of working-class and poor Americans who have been mercilessly pummeled during the current economic crisis ? a near-catastrophic downturn caused almost entirely by the recklessness and avarice of those on Wall Street and their overt enablers in the nation?s capital, Democrats and Republicans alike.

U.S. Election 2012- Alexander: Obama?s war strategy is obvious, Election 2012 (tags)

President Barack Obama recently kicked off his 2012 re-election campaign; however, the sluggish economy and the president?s failure to create jobs could threaten his hopes for re-election. With all the bad news on the economy, the president still remains the favorite to win in 2012. President Obama is a formidable fundraiser and has the financial backing of Wall Street and could spend as much a $1 billion for re-election; and approaching November 2012, the Republican field of presidential hopefuls appears to be hopeless.

U.S. Concentration Camps: Operation Garden Plot (tags)
Operation Garden Plot is the Army's code name for military plans to put down civil disturbances. It was most recently activated during the 1992 riots in Los Angeles, the 1999 WTO meetings in Seattle, the 2000 Philadelphia Republican National Convention, and the 2000 Democratic National Convention in L.A. Well over 100 concentration camps have been designated and are maintained for use under Operation Garden Plot. With the sweeping new police powers ushered in since 9-11, and the possible more to repeal or amend the Posse Comitatus act, the Federal Government is now taking aim at dissent at home rather than terrorism abroad.
National Lawyers Guild Launches Exploratory Campaign--Impeach the Supreme Court (tags)
The National Lawyers Guild (NLG) is exploring the legal, economic and viable political grounds for launching a broad-based impeachment campaign against the five members of the Bush v. Gore majority on the Supreme Court. The NLG is asking for input, support and endorsements. A "very high ranking member" of the House Judiciary Committee has indicated he will introduce bills of impeachment if we can create the political support to back up serious campaign effort. This is NOT simply arguing against Bush v. Gore, but against the broader anti-democratic agenda of the conservative activist justices.
