The Mass Grave We Call Collateral Damage

By Robert C. Koehler, “Lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. Boy, you think our country’s so innocent? You think our country’s so innocent?” We have carnage and we have irony. The speaker is the president, of course. It’s Super Bowl Sunday and here he is, generating another eyeball-popping headline as he dares to compare American […]

Deliberately Irrational and Dangerously Ignorant

By John LaForge, Donald Trump said at CIA headquarters January 21: “Trust me, I’m like a smart person,” and “I love honesty.” If he is not “professionally unprepared, intellectually ill-informed, morally compromised, and temperamentally unfit” to be president, as columnist David Brooks said Jan. 20, his blathering incoherent puffery before the assembled CIA staff failed […]

Reclaiming Our Democracy

by Andrew Moss, On Saturday, January 21, I joined somewhere between 300,000 and 500,000 people in downtown Los Angeles as the city made its own unique contribution to the women’s marches galvanizing more than a million people across the US and around the world.  In LA, as elsewhere, activists fighting for a wide range of […]

Inaugurating the Majori-Tea Party

By Rob Okun,  “We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must pledge we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.” —Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We marched in all 50 states. Several of the largest demonstrations were in the hundreds of thousands. In total, millions of us here and abroad banded together […]

Should We Keep Wasting Money on Missile Defense―or Invest in Something Useful?

By Lawrence Wittner When Americans criticize wasteful government spending, they often fail to realize that the biggest sinkhole for public funds is what’s described as “national defense”―a program that, all too often, does little or nothing to defend them. Take national missile defense, a program begun with much fanfare during the mid-1980s, when President Ronald […]

Creating Enemies, Creating Hell

By Robert C. Koehler   “Numerous foreign-born individuals have been convicted or implicated in terrorism-related crimes since September 11, 2001.” As Donald Trump sets out to “protect America,” I dedicate the words of his explosively controversial proclamation banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, to one of his supporters: Alexandre Bissonnette, […]

Remembering Daniel Berrigan, with Gratitude

By Ken Butigan Daniel Berrigan has died, and so we have lost our great teacher who, flinty and generous and relentlessly persistent, taught us how to live in a culture of death and madness: “Find some people you can pray with and march with.” He pronounced this simple sentence at the end of a mesmerizing […]

Remembering Nonviolent History: Freedom Rides

by Rivera Sun By May 1961, federal law had already ruled that segregation on interstate, public buses was illegal. Southern states, however, maintained segregation in seating, and at bus station bathrooms, waiting rooms and drinking fountains. The Interstate Commerce Commission refused to take action to enforce federal law. To change this, the Civil Rights Movement […]

Changing the Conversation About the “Woman Card”

by Laura Finley The “woman card.” It’s so much nonsense. Donald Trump is merely the latest to accuse a woman of playing identity politics because she, well, actually discussed the fact that the U.S. still has much to improve in terms of gender equality. Trump alleges that Clinton is discussing women’s issues so she can […]
