For starters, I am not the Henry Porter who writes for the Observer in Britain. I'm a native New Yorker living in Maryland. I used to believe knowledge was power. Now I know knowledge translated into action is power.
SHARE Thursday, November 11, 2010 Bush Book Tour is Great News... For Kissinger!
It is impossible to imagine a more striking example of a sociopath dropping his "Mask of Sanity" than this book tour and that interview. Who in their right mind brags about committing war crimes -- when no one is asking you about them?

Daniel Ellsberg appeared at the Wikileaks press conference to give his support. He also issued a dire warning that most of the media has ignored. Ellsberg may not be "The Most Dangerous Man in America" anymore, but that's only because there are people working overtime in Washington to claim that title.

The Wikileaks documents confirm the claims of death squad activities made in 2005. Those claims prompted Tom Fox and others to go to Iraq and investigate.

Teabaggers say the damndest things. They also think repeating them makes them true. I love it when they make the argument from ignorance. It is invariably as easy to crush as a grape. Enjoy.

Ricky Martin's decision to leave behind la vida mentirosa was more than an act of personal courage. It was a gift to millions of kids struggling to find the courage they need to step out into the light.

For decades, Israel could count on the US to veto any Security Council resolution aimed at Israeli policy. That may come to an end in a very public and humiliating way for Israel when the US steps back and effectively tells Israel, "You're On Your Own" when it comes to illegal settlements.
SHARE Wednesday, February 24, 2010 Questions people prefer not to ask
Why, in a country swimming with opium, are suicidal women setting themselves on fire? You're kidding yourself if you think we don't own a piece of that.
(2 comments) SHARE Friday, January 22, 2010 I never expected a pony, but this is ridiculous.
When the Senate Majority Leader can boldly claim "I don't work for the president" a week before the guy even takes office, don't point at progressives and say we're undercutting Obama's agenda.
