The Pentagon's 20-Year Killing Spree Has Always Treated Civilians as Expendable Top U.S. officials want us to believe that the Pentagon carefully spares civilian lives while making war overseas. Such pretenses should be grimly laughable to anyone who has read high-quality journalism

Abortion Bounty Hunters in Texas Are Not 'Whistleblowers' -- They're Cruel Vigilantes As a journalist and activist, I've worked with a range of genuine whistleblowers during the last several decades. Coming from diverse backgrounds, they ended up tangling with institutions ranging from the Pentagon and CIA to the National Security Agency and the Veterans Administration. Their personalities and outlooks varied greatly, but none of them were bullies. None of them wanted to threaten or harm powerless people

Joe Biden's Relapse into Hallucinations About GOP Leaders For a while, President Biden seemed to be recovering from chronic fantasies about Republicans in Congress. But last week he had a relapse -- harming prospects for key progressive legislation and reducing the already slim hopes that the GOP can be prevented from winning control of the House and Senate in midterm elections 15 months from now. Biden's reflex has been to gladhand his way across the aisle.

The Presidential Election: "A 200-Pound Sack of Concrete" vs. "The Orange Menace" At a time when long-winded polemics and punditry about the upcoming presidential election are all over the place, a longtime progressive populist author and agitator has just summarized it all in less than a minute.

Elizabeth Warren: Which Side Are You On? with corporate Democrat Joe Biden enjoying sudden momentum and mega-billionaire Mike Bloomberg joining forces with him, an urgent question hovers over Warren. It's a time-honored union inquiry: "Which side are you on?" How Warren answers that question might determine the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. In the process, she will profoundly etch into history the reality of her political character.

The Primary Contradiction: Corporate Power vs. Progressive Populism For plutocrats, this summer has gotten a bit scary. Two feared candidates are rising. Trusted candidates are underperforming. The 2020 presidential election could turn out to be a real-life horror movie: A Nightmare on Wall Street.

Pelosi and McConnell: Cranking Up Bipartisan Madness for NATO When NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg gives his speech to the assembled members of Congress next Wednesday, you can count on the House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader to be right behind him.

Being Better Than Republicans Is Not Good Enough Winning elective power can and must be part of social movements that are engaged in wresting power away from dominant authorities in an array of walks of life while nurturing alternative institutions. Progressive power of enduring value grows from deep roots in communities, with huge potential to weaken the undemocratic power of the current oligarchy.

Joe Biden on the relaunch pad: He's worse than you thought Biden makes clear his distaste for the current progressive populist wave. "I know some want to single out big corporations for all the blame," he wrote in a blog post. "It is true that the balance has shifted too much in favor of corporations and against workers. But consumers, workers, and leaders have the power to hold every corporation to a higher standard.

The Backstory on the Pelosi Leadership Flap Pelosi is a longtime wizard at generating and funneling hundreds of millions of election-cycle dollars, and as speaker she'll wield enormous power over committee assignments. But she must keep Democratic House members minimally satisfied -- and along the way that should mean yielding more power to the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

The Ghost of Hubert Humphrey Hubert Humphrey wanted to pretend that war abroad could be compatible with a great society at home. Today, at the top of the Democratic Party, the pretense is similar, as if continual U.S. warfare overseas can coexist with some kind of decent social policy at home. The mix of delusion and deception continues to cause vast human suffering.

Where the Money Goes Here's a fact worth pondering: If the money that taxpayers in California have already provided for the Iraq war - $83.1 billion - could somehow be magically rerouted to the state government's coffers, the lawmakers in Sacramento would now be faced with the problem of what to do with a massive surplus.
