Broken Campaign Promises; Obama's Tardy Iraqi Troop Withdrawal (tags)

Code Pink calls Obama's delayed troop withdrawal a broken promise, after claiming to have ALL troops out of Iraq by the end of 2009. Instead, we now have residual troops in Iraq until 2011, and the majority of troops not leaving Iraq until August 2010.

Why Bush Doesn’t Have to Suspend the Constitution! (tags)

President George W. Bush doesn’t have to mimic Pakistan's dictator, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, and suspend the Constitution, since he doesn’t have any opposition. The two major political parties are controlled by the same Wire Pullers. Meanwhile, an “Axis of Zionists,” Michael Mukasey at Justice, Michael Chertoff at Homeland Security and Joshua Bolten at the WH, now have a choke hold on key positions in our government. America is in deep doo-doo!

Mothers For Peace Arrested on Capitol Hill (tags)

The “SWARM on Congress” campaign got off to a rousing start on May 14, 2007, in the nation’s capital. Cindy Sheehan spoke to the crowd at Lafayette Park; along with Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) and activists Kevin Zeese, David Swanson, Debra Sweet, Ann Wright, the Rev. Lennox Yearwood, and others. After parading to Capitol Hill, 33 of the estimated 250 antiwar activists were arrested there for refusing a police order to disperse.

Rep. John Conyers: “Congress Can Fire Bush!” (tags)

A massive anti-Iraqi War rally was held, in D.C., on Sat., Jan. 27, 2007. The Chairman of the House’s Judiciary Committee, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), sent an unmistakable warning to President George W. Bush. Conyers said he wants the “war stopped.” He reminded Bush, that the U.S. Congress “can fire him.” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said Bush “tricked the American people” into the war. She said, to loud applause: “Bush isn’t the decider. He’s the liar!”

The Peoples’ Counter State of the Union Message (tags)

George W. Bush, the Liar-in-Chief, did his thing on Tuesday night, Jan. 23, 2007. He delivered another one of his so-called “State of the Union” messages to the Congress, on Capitol Hill. Outside the building, however, by the reflective pool, activists, like: Col. Ann Wright, Medea Benjamin, Jeffrey Milliard and Travis Morales, offered a true representation of the state of our nation. They demanded an end to the Iraqi War and bringing our troops home.

Close Guantánamo! (tags)

GUANTÁNAMO.— Luchadores civiles estadounidenses, entre quienes se cuentan relevantes figuras del movimiento contra la guerra en Iraq, familiares de prisioneros y ex prisioneros, llegarán este jueves hasta las inmediaciones de la Base Naval para exigir el cese de la ocupación y el desmantelamiento de la ilegal cárcel que mantiene EE.UU. en esa instalación en la bahía de Guantánamo, territorio usurpado a Cuba.

Aaron Burr and Dick Cheney: Two Treacherous VPs (tags)

V. P. Dick Cheney is a very powerful, but desperate individual. The idea that the Bush-Cheney Gang is planning to send 30,000 more troops into the Civil War in Iraq is insane. A planned war with Iran is also on Cheney’s agenda as a diversion to save himself and George W. Bush from impeachment. The Special Prosecutor will soon cross examine Cheney in the “Scooter” Libby case. Unless the U.S. Congress acts soon to impeach, say good-bye to the Republic!

The Marla Ruzicka Story -- The *Real* Story (tags)

No one who was a threat -- let alone any real threat -- to the U.S. imperialist war machine would ever be gushingly and pervasively celebrated by it, the Congress, the President and the military, no less, and the political establishment's corporate media. Marla Ruzicka -- even posing for pictures on top of tanks and in group hugs with gun-posing American soldiers, let alone using the war and exploiting the misery of the Iraqi people to parlay that into a hoped-for lucrative cushy position inside the Pentagon or State Department, feathering her nest and her new career with military-industrial complex money (yet still a pittance of that spent on the bombs of war) -- served as a willing PR front for that machine. Furthermore, she was willing to collect and *give* that information directly to the US *military*, providing it with, in effect, valuable intelligence on the Iraqi people (how many males and females of which ages, including possible fighting age, in each family, and what their resources and professional/community positions were, perhaps a community critic of the US war, maybe an intellectual, a journalist, a teacher, or a doctor/nurse who could patch up Iraqi wounded resistace fighters, and who in each family might have gotten shot -- perhaps a resistance member? -- by the US military) under the guise of humanitarian relief. Here is what progressive journalist Christian Parenti had to say about the darling of the U.S. imperialist military machine:

The Anti-War Movement Sourced the Democrats’ Victory! (tags)

The Democratic Party, read “The War Lite” Party, is basking in the glow of victory today. It has regained control of the House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate for the first time in 12-years. The two issues that it won on-The Iraqi War and the whacky persona of President George W. Bush-had little or nothing to do with the Democratic Party. Those two matters were actually sourced by activists in the Anti-Iraqi War Movement!

NANCY PELOSI VS. CYNTHIA MCKINNEY: Issues of War & Peace – Iraq, 9-11, Israel (tags)

McKinney, from Atlanta, Georgia, is an African-American warrior for justice and peace and an enemy of government hypocrisy. The other, Nancy Pelosi, is the white, privileged congresswoman from San Francisco, a consummate politician who, because of her prodigious fundraising abilities, was promoted by the party to run for the seat of the late Sala Burton in 1986 and is now the House Minority leader in Congress, thanks to her loyal service to the party and to the party line. ... Meanwhile, McKinney made her film debut this week in “American Blackout,” an independent film that premiered at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, and which explores the historic and disempowerment of the Black vote through her eyes and political career. [This article also reviews the role of the pro-Israel-First Lobby in McKinney's initial ouster – issues that staunch Zionist Jewish-American journalist Greg Palast PURPOSELY omitted in his 'expose' (indecorously entitled), "The Screwing of Cynthia McKinney", but nonetheless Greg Palast's damage control article excluding the inter/national invovlement of the Israel lobby.]

Green Party Window Dressing Undermines Working Class Power (tags)

Electoral politics for socialists has always been tricky. Eugene Debbs, the firebrand organizer and SP candidate for President fought a huge uphill battle based on his forward facing confrontation with capital, while always clearly identifying class lines. Of course, I expect nothing less from Todd Chretien, the Green Party US candidate for Senate.
