2012 Presidential Election & Cal Props Results (tags)
All elections confirm the class struggle that has preceded them and the 2012 presidential general election confirms the fact that there has not been much class struggle in this country. There has been some effort to bring this backward country into the fold of civilization with the placing of a repeal of the California death penalty, Prop 34, on the ballot by the voters, but as of 5 a.m., 11/7/12, it has 47% of the vote. The presidential election, with the re-election of the latest fascist war criminal in the White House with a bare 50.3% of the vote is no mandate and this termed out president is now a lame duck president. The 2016 presidential election begins today.
Obama's Disposition Matrix (tags)
Attorney Lynne Stewart Punished by Prison System (tags)
Political prisoner attorney Lynne Stewart, framed on false charges by Republican Bush who terrorized a jury to a false conviction, which charges were not dropped by Democrat Obama which continues to defend the frame-up, is since 8/3/12 for 45 days unable to receive visits, phone calls or commissary. Her appeal of her vicious, unconstitutional 10 year sentence needs your help.
The Left, Labor and Occupy (tags)
Barely half a year after it burst on the scene, the Occupy Wall Street movement is splintering left and right. This was inevitable in a movement that was united only in what it opposed and could never put forward a positive program, whether of reformist "demands" on the capitalist state or of revolutionary action against it. Liberals, who latched onto Occupy hoping it could pressure the Democratic Party in a more populist direction, want to expel "black bloc" anarchists. Reformist social democrats rail against "ultraleftists" in Occupy and cozy up to the labor tops. On the other side, many (but not all) anarchists oppose unions. Some are simply arrogant petty-bourgeois labor haters. Others are grappling with real problems, but with skewed analysis and dead wrong conclusions. Discussion of recent workers' struggles, from Wisconsin to West Coast longshore, underlines that the key question is leadership, but not just replacing one set of bureaucrats with another. Unions have always faced vicious anti-labor laws, but we have the power to defeat them. It is necessary to drive out the pro-capitalist bureaucracy, the labor lieutenants of capital, in order to turn the unions into instruments of revolutionary class struggle.
Of Korea, the Rosenbergs, Berenson, Anti-Semitism & US imperialism (tags)
On Dec 20, 2011, the first day of Chanukah, the Jewish festival of lights that commemorates liberation, Lori Berenson, a victim of anti-Semitism common in Catholic countries like Peru, finally came home. Coincidentally, the latest leader of Stalinist North Korea, Kim Jong Il, died Dec 17, 2011, so the US saber rattling under the guise of "human rights" was renewed on all airwaves. Ignored everywhere, including KPFA, was the anti-Semitic frame-up of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, by Democratic president Harry Truman in 1950 to make Jew, Communist and traitor synonymous to justify the war of anti-communism in Korea, in the US first stage attempt to destroy the 1949 Chinese revolution, leaving 3 million dead Koreans, and a devastated country.
Obama Defends US Slaughter of Vietnamese & Korean People (tags)
Democrat Obama's exact words in support of the slaughter of the Vietnamese & Korean people were: "From the bombing of Darwin to the liberation of Pacific islands, from the rice paddies of Southeast Asia to a cold Korean peninsula, generations of Americans have served here, and died here. So democracies could take root. So economic miracles could lift hundreds of millions to prosperity."
Obama Tortures Bradley Manning; Where are CCR & ACLU lawsuits? (tags)
Democrat Obama is now torturing whistleblower Bradley Manning by keeping him in solitary confinement 23 hours per day, with no news contacts and no pillow or sheets allowed so he is now on anti-depressants. Where are the CCR (Center for Constitutional Rights) & ACLU lawsuits?
341-48 for Obama's $725 Billion War Bill Without Debate (tags)
On 12/17/10, the day after supporting Democrat Obama's destruction of Social Security and continuation of tax cuts for the rich, the US Congress again joined Democrat Obama in attacking the workingclass by voting 341-48 for Obama's $725 Billion war bill without debate, all to make the rich richer.
Obama Destroys Social Security (tags)
Democrat Obama, with the support of 138 Republicans and 139 Democrats in the House, for a vote of 277 to 148 on HR 4853, Roll Call 647, and a vote of 87 to 19 in the Senate, Roll Call vote 276, won passage of his tax cuts for the rich bill, destroying Social Security by cutting the payroll tax for Social Security by 2%, which will not be restored in 2012, an election year, when the cut is due to expire.
US Senate 1st Vote to Destroy Social Security 83-15 (tags)
Democrat Obama's tax cut deal with the Republicans to destroy Social Security and make the rich richer had its first vote in the US Senate, supporting his program, 83-15 with 2 abstentions, on 12/13/10, Vote No. 272, related to HR 4853.
Obama Cutting Social Security Funds in Deal to Extend Tax Cuts (tags)
To provide political cover for this giveaway to the rich, the plan includes an extension of federal long-term unemployment benefits for 13 months and a one-year reduction in the Social Security payroll tax from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent. While this would temporarily increase paychecks for tens of millions, it would also deprive Social Security of $120 billion in funding. The White House said this shortfall would be made up through general revenue sources, but these have not been specified. [And probably do not exist.]
Obama's Press Secretary v "Professional Left" (tags)
Democrat Obama's Press Secretary's anti-communist smear of the non-existent "professional left" accompanied by his attacks on those who correctly support Canadian style healthcare and abolition of the military is a clear signal that we are now dealing with an administration that is now openly reactionary.
Obama v Wikileaks + Nixon v Pentagon Papers = War Criminals (tags)
In 1971, with the publication of the Pentagon Papers, Republican Nixon and his predecessor, Democrat Johnson, were exposed as war criminals in their massacre of 5 million Vietnamese, and eventually 1 million Cambodians and 58,000 Americans, and thousands of other people, for their war of anti-communism in Vietnam. The outrage was so great by 1968 that Johnson did not run for a second term. Now we have Wikileaks, exposing the war crimes of Democrat Obama and Republican Bush in Afghanistan, one of the poorest, most illiterate countries in the world, where the people are subject to US remote controlled drone attacks and daily killings on the ground to get the Caspian Sea oil, minerals and be poised to attack the biggest mineral prize, Russia. Meanwhile the US Congress, Democrats and Republicans, just voted overwhelmingly for more money to kill Afghans and anyone else disliked by US imperialism.
Democrat Boxer Opposes Prop 19; P&F Feinland Supports Prop 19 (tags)
Democrats Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, Attorney General and candidate for Governor Jerry Brown and Democrat Obama's drug czar Gil Kerlikowski oppose Proposition 19 while all Peace & Freedom Party and its candidate for US Senate Marsha Feinland and Green Party candidates support Prop 19 which ends the prohibition on marijuana, thus ending the police state and its prison-concentration camp system. Are you still registered Democrat?
War Criminal Alex Haig Praised by Obama (tags)
People are known by the company they keep and Democrat Obama's praise for the late war criminal Republican General Alexander Haig is the latest sign that we are dealing with yet another fascist president, EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE LAST FASCIST PRESIDENT, GEORGE BUSH. The biography of war criminal Haig (1924-2010) is below.
Obama Praises Repub Bob Gates & Signs More War & Fascism Spending Bills (tags)
Honesty is always the best policy and Democrat Obama told the truth as to who he is on 10/28/09 when he praised Bush's War Sec, Republican Bob Gates as he signed the National Defense Authorization Act and on 10/29/09, a bill for the Gestapo, the "Homeland" Security Dept, giving $724 billion for war and fascism while we have poverty, no schools, no healthcare, no jobs. Democrat Obama ALWAYS WAS AND STILL IS a millionaire, warmonger, death penalty promoter. This is what you voted for when you voted either Democrat or Republican in November 2008.
Obama and the illusion of a post-racial America (tags)
His candidacy is seen as an indication that racial barriers no longer exist. Many see progress in the fact that a black man can run a campaign in which race is incidental. Yet it’s taken Obama’s embrace of post-racialism to lend viability to his campaign. Some activists see him as the culmination of a trend of black leaders moving away from the communities they’ve traditionally served and closer to the political and corporate power that dominates the Democratic Party.
Bell Case:Courts, Police, Democrat Obama v Workingclass (tags)
The outrage at the Sean Bell verdict must be NATIONWIDE. This is an escalation of the police state terror against the workingclass and Democrat Barack Obama, the millionaire, warmonger, pro-death penalty candidate for president, announces that he supports the fascist verdict.
