Why Trump Unconstitutionally Started a War with Iran To Serve Israel Why has Trump taken the US into a war with Iran on behalf of Israel? Because it is what two parties want-- the right wingers in Israel, led by Netanyahu, the only leader of a nation to support Trump's act, and right wing Zionist supporters in the US-- a relatively small group, and the 70-80 million Rapture-rabid Evangelicals who are drooling and salivating to see a full out conflagration of war in the Middle East.

Go to Israel It's looking more and more like Israel has its own brand of intolerant, fundamentalist "Taliban" extremists, bullying the majority of the Israeli people and now, re-defining what it is to be a Jew, so most American Jews are not Jews and most American rabbis are not rabbis. It is even illegal for women to carry a torah at the wailing wall. We know that taking away rights starts small and creeps to bigger and bigger things.

Did Police Pepper Spraying of Occupy Wall Streeters Cost Billions On Black Friday? Did police use of pepper spray on OWS protesters "prime" the woman who pepper sprayed Walmart shoppers this morning. If so, and people avoid shopping the box store melees, those police actions could have led to losses of hundreds of millions if not billions in Black Friday sales.

Don Siegelman and Cyril Wecht, and these Bush-appointees are still on the job, doing damage to the US, to justice and innocent victims.

This is not going to work. They may feel good, making Republicans look bad, but the main strategy that this tactic is based upon is a loser.

It should never have allowed their formation and it should actively work to prevent them from developing. It is time to fight back with word engineering that reframes the tax breaks to wealthy inheritors as welfare for the rich and the tax on estates as a "dynasty tax"

Obama's Betrayal Moves Forward-- Eleven Nations Agree on TPP The TPP Trans Pacific Partnership is a betrayal of voters and the 99% throughout the world, not just the USA. Big business supporting neoliberals are cheering Obama, saying this cements his legacy. I agree, but it is a shameful legacy that condemns Obama to the garbage dump of history. The next step is fast track approval of this despicable deal in congress. Will legislators attempt to sell this ugly gift ?

Wake Up Time for the "Stupid White Man" the strongest supporters of the right wing are white males. They need to be reconsidered as voters who can wake up and vote on the left. The fact is, they have long been victims of right wing policy. The Dems would be smart to figure out how to reach them.

Did Congress Pass Legislation Allowing Bush to Violate The Law Against Illegal Spying? Will they continue to allow him to keep doing it now that he's confessed? If WE THE PEOPLE don't act on this, and demand an end to it and serious, legal repercussions, the USA is lost.

Failure to Embrace Power; Obama's, Democrats' Betrayal Americans gave Obama and Congress incredible power. So far they have miserably failed to exercise it. That is a treacherous, sad betrayal that will hand the Whitehouse and Congress to the Republicans by 2012.

That leadership must come from within the Democratic Party-- from within the Congress, from within the Obama White House.
