In the Constitutional Constellations, a condolence letter sent by a 21st Century Progressive, informed our two foremost Founding Fathers, 1st President Washington and 3rd President Jefferson, regarding the passing of their noble experiment, the U.S. Constitution and the formation of our country.
I have concluded that Republicans are, by their very nature, cowards. Let us look at the evidence. First, instead of fighting a war that we really should have been fighting (like addressing real issues about who we are in the world community), we went to a trumped up war based upon lies and innuendo in [...]
When we left the conversation between former presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, they were commenting on a condolence letter regarding the demise of the United States of America, as written by today’s American Insurgents, (like our founding fathers) today known as Progressive Americans. The two great men have returned to the subject of the [...]
Dear Founding Fathers: We extend our deepest condolences, on the passing of our young and formerly healthy democratic nation, the United States of America. You fought so hard to construct a failsafe and immune Constitution, one that could not only stand the test of time, but could also survive a short-term virulent attack of an [...]
by Linda Milazzo — Some men sacrificed their sons for their nation. George Herbert Walker Bush sacrificed his nation for his son.
Yesterday on CNN’s Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, Democratic Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, responded to a viewer who asked why she took the impeachment of George W. Bush off the table. Pelosi’s response (below in video and text), is categoric proof of her incompetence, dereliction of duty, disdain for the Constitution, and disregard [...]
For the last several months, I have received phone calls and a zillion emails about the Hillary issue. I supported the move to get the Democratic Party Florida delegation seated before any other Democratic National Committee (DNC) member outside of Florida signed on. I argued that the DNC Rules Committee did not have the authority [...]
by Steven Conn — As he refines his economic message on the campaign trail this summer, Republican John McCain has made it clear that, previous positions notwithstanding, he has now embraced the Republican economic orthodoxy: eliminate regulation, cut taxes on corporations and the wealthy, and the free and unfettered market will take care of everything.
The Fourth of July is a date that historically brings about much confliction in the African American community. Never one to miss a great party, black people spend considerable money on bar-b-ques and fireworks. And you see as many American flags hanging on the porches of black homes as any other. Why? Because as Langston [...]
By Herb Engstrom — The main reason that I have supported Barack Obama since the declaration of his candidacy is that I feel he was the candidate that could improve the world’s image of America most rapidly. Here I have translated a relevant article that appeared last Friday in France’s “newspaper of record,” Le Monde.”
I guess this is proof, after a fashion, that the war has indeed followed us home. Some of our leading veterans-turned-political-warriors, from John McCain to Wesley Clark and Jim Webb, and even a fresh-outta-mothballs Swiftboater seem to have decided that – never mind “fighting ‘em over there” – the order of the day really is [...]
I’ve heard of rooting for the bad guys, but this is ridiculous. John McCain’s elite advisor Charlie Black opined to Fortune magazine that if there were another terrorist strike against our country in time for the general election, it ‘certainly would be a big advantage‘ for McCain’s campaign. Wow. Nice. Which American city would you [...]
Bush and Company lives for and thrives on lies and disaster. They have proven their fiction is a stranger to the truth. The greater the disaster, the greater the potential for Republican profit, greed, and corruption. Herr Rove learned from Joe Goebbels, that by using fiction to become GOP truth, he could find ways to [...]
Powell said that every word of what he called his ‘infamous’ presentation about WMD (in Iraq) had been vetted by the intelligence community — ‘and I had no reason to disbelieve it.’ The former secretary of state has previously described his prewar UN speech as a ‘blot’ on his record. read more | digg story
When anti-war activists on the California Democratic Party Executive Board gather near San Francisco this weekend their swing block votes, representing roughly a third of the board, could elect strong progressives to the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Up for grabs are 19 seats for the California Delegation in 2012, when the next Presidential nominee will [...]
I would never have thought there’d be any greater crimes than those of George W. Bush, nor any villain greater. I’m wrong. And no, it’s not Dick Cheney, either, or anything he’s perpetrated. Nor any of their colleagues. It’s Nancy Pelosi, and her colleagues, and what they seem quite literally hell-bent on doing. Why at [...]
Presidential elections don’t create change. Grassroots social movements, putting pressure on politicians, does. However, who’s in the Oval Office creates the context we have to work within. If anyone doubts that, Bush-Cheney should be hard evidence. For the first time in 40 years, there’s a huge wave of “mainstream” progressive energy—much of it fueled by [...]
I’m not saying Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s historic presidential run is toast. Finished. Down the drain. Caput. Washed up. History. A memory. In the archives. Defunct. Extinct. Artifacto. Took a hike. Sleeping with the fishes. Part of the vast past tense. Joined the choir invisible. Totally obliterated. Entering Sidekick City. Sheer finito. Thoroughly through. Down [...]
The irony of George W. Bush going before the Knesset and mocking the late Sen. William Borah (pictured here) for expressing surprise at Adolf Hitler’s 1939 invasion of Poland is that Bush’s own family played a much bigger role assisting the Nazis. If Borah, an isolationist Republican from Idaho, sounded naïve saying “Lord, if only [...]
Texas best-selling author and radio commentator Jim Hightower swung through Southern California this past week to ruffle a few feathers—“kick a little ass,” is what he actually said—and spread a little sunlight as the long night of the “theocratic, plutocratic, kleptocratic” Bush Administration comes to an end. Speaking to a mostly white-haired audience at Pasadena’s [...]
War, trade policy, immigration, and the need to show voters that government has a role to play and solutions that work were much on Congressman Xavier Becerra’s mind on a recent cab ride to the airport from Capitol Hill. In response to survey results asking for more contact with officeholders representing Northeast Los Angeles, we [...]
