Failed Action On The Climate Crisis Makes Resistance Imperative Last week, prominent scientists issued a warning that significant changes related to the climate crisis are already happening and could create a cascading effect that locks in catastrophic levels of temperature and sea-level rise. They view the pledges made by countries to take climate action as insufficient and leading to a three degrees Celsius temperature rise by the end of the century.

The World Is Uniting For International Law, Against US Empire "We oppose the extraterritorial application of unilateral measures." That is not Cuba, Nicaragua, Iran, Russia, or China talking about the most recent unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States against Venezuela, i.e. economic sanctions that have become an economic blockade, but the European Union. Even allies who have embarrassed themselves by recognizing the phony "interim president" Juan Guaido are saying

No To NATO: Time To End Aggressive Militarism US foreign policy is not the fabled "good cop" bringing peace to the world, but rather a policy of domination using military, economic and political power to accomplish aims for US transnational corporations and US empire.

Venezuela: What activists need to know about the US-led coup Two things stand out about the U.S. coup in Venezuela. First, it is unusually open. Typically, the U.S. tries to hide its coups. Second, the coup is built on a series of obvious falsehoods, yet the bi-partisans in Washington, with a few exceptions, keep repeating them.

We Can End The US War On Syria The US war against Syria was one that people almost stopped. President Obama was unable to get Congress to authorize the war in 2013, but the Pentagon and foreign policy establishment, who have long wanted to control Syria, pushed forward with war anyway. It has been a disaster.

Of Course, Medicare For All Would Increase Federal Spending... A single payer healthcare system would decrease administrative costs and prices of goods, such as pharmaceuticals, and services dramatically. Rather than having hundreds of different healthcare plans, each with different rules, there is one comprehensive plan with one set of rules. It would relieve families, employers, health professionals and hospitals of the burden of navigating the current complex system.

Earth Day: Conflict Over the Future of the Planet Despite the government continuing to invest in dirty energy, clean energy is growing. Wind farming is creating jobs in red states like Texas. The Solar Foundation mapped solar jobs by congressional district as solar is the fastest growing source of new energy. Research has been developed on a state-by-state basis to make the United States 100% renewable by 2050, with a national mobilization it could happen more quickly.

A Proposal Designed to Confuse Public and Prevent "Medicare for All" The fact that CAP is using Medicare for All language is both a blessing and a curse. It means Medicare for All is so popular that they feel a need to co-opt it, and it means that they are trying to co-opt it, which will give Democrats an opportunity to use it to confuse people.

The Path to National Improved Medicare for All What happens when the public is told they are working for state-based single payer and then they find out that they have been misled because the goal is not possible? It may be that public trust is lost or that people experience a deep disappointment because they worked hard for something that will never be realized.

Anti-Progressive Trump Agenda May Fuel Progressive Transformation The Trump Administration continues to put policies in place that go against national consensus on critical issues and is conducting a foreign policy that isolates the United States from the rest of the world. The Trump administration refuses to learn from mistakes; therefore, we are likely doomed to repeat them.

National Improved Medicare for All Making Progress We have the framework for a national system and we have the institutions to provide care. Just as we did in 1965 when Medicare and Medicaid were created from scratch, and without the benefit of the Internet, we can create National Improved Medicare for All, a universal system, all at once. Everybody in and nobody out.

100 Years of White Empire Propaganda Wars are waged in order to dominate regions for their resources so that a few may profit, they are also rooted in white supremacist and racist ideology that believes only certain people deserve to control their destinies. By linking hands with our brothers and sisters around the planet and working for peace, we can bring about a multi-polar world in which all people have peace, self-determination and live in dignity.

Dismantling White Supremacy We need to move past allowing white supremacist ideas and theories to have a legitimate place in public debates. They have no place in our society except in textbooks so that future generations understand how destructive they were once upon a time.

Response to Nation Article on Single Payer: Improved Medicare for All is the Solution As the movement for improved Medicare for all gains momentum, liberal Democrats are providing cover for corporate Democrats failure to support single payer. One such false commentary was published by the Nation and authored by Joshua Holland. Margaret Flowers responds to Holland and shows the fault-filled nature of his arguments.

Yes, We Can Fix the ACA The US has the highest administrative costs, a third of our health care dollar goes to administration, and the US pays the highest prices for health care services and pharmaceuticals because we don't have an overall system that negotiates the prices. There is no rationale for the costs of care; it is based on what the market will bear.

Voters are Fired Up for Single Payer Creating Dilemma for Democrats -- Health Over Profit Polls have consistently shown that super-majorities of Democratic Party voters want single payer, but Democratic Party candidates keep telling them that they can't have it. The Democratic Party has refused to add Medicare for All to its healthcare platform despite resolutions introduced by single payer advocates. Even the Congressional Progressive Caucus refuses to include single payer health care in their "People's Budget."

]The People's Plan For Transformation In the face of multiple crises and kleptocratic governments that refuse to take appropriate actions, movements are rising in the United States and around the world. This is reminiscent of the uprising in the 1960s and 1970s when social movements were active on a number of fronts of struggle from civil rights to women's rights to war to the environment, poverty and more.
