When CNN’s  Suzanne Malveaux suggested to Jones last week that he might be a “leader” of the Occupy Movement, Jones demurred saying, “There ... continue reading

Lawrence O'Donnell of MSNBC Tells the Story of Wall Steet Police Abuse Perfectly

Labor Day Reflection: Time for Americans to participate in power

The Roman philosopher and statesman, Marcus Tullius Cicero said “Freedom is participation in power.”  By that standard Americans are not free.  We do not participate in power.

Symbolic protests no longer work.  Americans need to get organized and mobilized to demand what we want.

President Obama Makes a Fair Trial of Bradley Manning Impossible By Declaring Him Guilty

The credibility of the military justice system is being undermined by the prosecution of Bradley Manning.  His abusive punishment without trial violates his due process rights; his harsh treatment in solitary confinement-torture conditions violates the prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment; and now the commander-in-chief has announced his guilt before ... continue reading
