You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews

The Pen is a real person, and the founder of The People's Email Network, a resource founded in 2004 with the mission of making sending policy advocacy messages as facile and easy as possible. With this goal in mind we pioneered one click action pages in the political realm, now imitated by virtually all other action sites on the internet.

The premise behind the resource has always been twofold. If people are speaking out to their members of Congress in sufficient numbers one of two things MUST happen. 1) Either our representatives will heed the voices of their constituents and we will have the policy change we want, or 2) People will personally experience being ignored by their members of Congress, and then we have a base of people motivated to seek their replacement.

Last year we also added to its resource options fax sending capability, so that messages can be sent by fax to recipients who might not be reachable by web input form or regular email.

Besides our own action alerts and pages, many other activist groups have been set up with their own action page creators, including building this capability into the writer article submission interface for OpEdNews.com itself, to empower them in their own policy missions. And all of these services are provided for absolutely no charge to anyone, supported only by whatever kind donations individuals choose to make from time to time.

We have also been involved in video and audio production of activist works of theater, including a stage production in San Francisco of a play on the impeachment of "George Bush and Richard Cheney", released on DVD in 2008, and a radio play for peace entitled, "It's Up To Us Alone", which debuted on two 100,000 watt stations (KPFK, Los Angeles and KKFI, Kansas City) last October, and is also in preparation for release as a short animated film.

The latest project is full length feature film, "The Last War Crime", about indicting Cheney for torture . . . and isn't that something billions of people want to see? We ask the question, "What if there was only one chance for justice?" Featuring 100 cast members with speaking parts, the film is remarkable for its extensive use of cutting edge green compositing to put the characters in actual historical environments and photo-realistic recreations of others.

Though not in official release quite yet, the "The Last War Crime" has experienced major censorship hurdles, including the banning of its preview waterboard scene from YouTube (reversed after massive popular outcry), and the refusal of MTV (Viacom Inc.) to accept a paid ad for the movie, and a parallel rejection by WMAL, the premier political news/talk radio station in Washington, DC, now the subject of a major ongoing federal lawsuit for "political speech discrimination".

The Dangerous Folly Of Campaign Finance Reform Legislation Now We've gotten multiple mail solicitations in the last couple days for some petition calling for "comprehensive" campaign finance reform OR constitutional amendment to "reverse" McCutcheon, with the emphasis on the former. The problem is that the Supreme Court has made itself perfectly clear. Any attempt to undo what they are doing, and they will strike DOWN your comprehensive campaign finance reform just as comprehensively.

Who Will Save The Democrats From Themselves? Last week Nate Silver gave his assessment that the Democrats had a 60% chance of losing the Senate in the next election. Considering the fact that Democratic leaders were bragging last time about how Silver always got it right, this is an ominous sign. The one and only hope the Democrats have is to put everything behind a constitutional amendment to reverse the Citizens United corporate personhood decision.

Chump Change: Our New Corporate Health Care System While the health care bill's strongest defenders are bragging that they can save a hundred dollars or whatever, America continues to pay . . . continues to pay . . . CONTINUES to pay more than twice as much as any developed first world country in the world for their health care. These are chump corporate discounts, folks, for anyone with the integrity to admit it.

The Dead Bodies They Won't Show Us Pictures Of In a last gasp attempt to try to inflame the American people and its Congress into our own irrational act of international murder in Syria, the administration has flooded our media with pictures of dead bodies. Do they really think all they have to do is show us some bodies lined up in burial shrouds and like Pavlov's mad dogs we will all start foaming at the mouth for war?

Action Page: Absolutely NO Syria Attack Without International Consensus In the new authorization for military force measure proposed by the White House much lip service is given to previous UN resolutions, international norms, and the like.

The Red Line For Impeachment In Syria Kerry contends that Assad was warned that use of chemical weapons was a red line not to be crossed. but he did so anyway. We warn President Obama that rogue executive action to launch an attack is an equally clear red line, and he dare not cross it, and we WILL call for accountability and shame on us if we don't.

Unblocking The Pipe (Stop The Filibuster, Part 5) The most important thing to recognize is that the only thing that has ever forced any movement on filibuster reform has been the threat to change it unilaterally. There have been many attempts to reform the filibuster, but only when the Senate was completely fed up and ready to invoke the so-called "constitutional option" has anything ever actually happened.

Robert's Rules Of Disorder (Stop The Filibuster, Part 4) Some may think that because Robert's so-called Rules of Order include a procedure that resembles an attempted cloture vote (to cut off a filibuster) that this was some time honored tradition from the same era as our Constitution. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Pirates Of The Constitution (Stop The Filibuster, Part 3) It was not until at least 50 years after the Constitutional Convention that some perverse senators had the evil idea of exploiting an inadvertent defect in the rules to hijack the process . . . pirates of the Constitution.

But Now that the Democrats are talking like they will actually move to reform filibuster abuse, the Republicans are threatening to completely shut down the Senate in vengeful retaliation. Isn't that the status quo? Isn't that why the filibuster must be abolished in the first place? Isn't that why we must all speak out now?

Where Do We Go Forward To From Here, Post Election?? Unless we get cracking right now, and advocate for policy change in voices that WILL NOT be ignored, in another two years we will again be faced with a choice between candidates hard to defend and even greater evils. This is our three part plan on how to proceed going forward.

MTV (Viacom Inc.)

Dead Political Party Walking The Democratic party as a viable political power force is finished for at least the next election cycle. Stick a fork in it, it's done. We see no scenario of possible recovery from this. It's over. The only reason they did not lose back the Senate in round one is because only a third of the seats were in play. The rest they will lose the next time for sure.

But since Kagan's name is again being tossed about as a replacement for retiring Justice Stevens, we have no choice.

More than sixty of them declared in no uncertain terms last fall that NO bill would pass without a strong "public option". Instead, they did the opposite, working en masse to drag anybody who would hold out back into their slime pit of cowardice.

Delightful New "Medicare For All" Video And Fax Action Page, "I'm A Democrat, And I'm A Republican" A couple weeks ago the Democratic Senate Committee put out a video called "I'm A Democrat, And I'm A Republican", begging us for more campaign contributions based on the premise that even 60 votes in their caucus is not enough to pass a decent bill. So we decided to produce a series of our own issue advocacy satire videos, to propagate the truth that NEITHER the Democrats NOR the Republicans want real health care reform.

The Senate LAUGHS About How Many Police It Takes To Silence The American People On Single Payer Health Care How many police does it take to silence the voice of the people? That's a question a despot might ask in a totalitarian police state. But this week the Senate Finance Committee thought it was a hilarious joke as they ejected one brave activist after another, for protesting that not even one spokesperson for single payer health care was being allowed to sit at the hearing table.

Waiting . . . because if they did it now the two of them would be tarred and feathered on the way out the door.
