Living on a Quagmire Planet: This Could Get a Lot Uglier
Tom Engelhardt | counterpunch.org | 2019-01-09
Sixty-six million years ago, so the scientists tell us, an asteroid slammed into this planet. Landing on what's now Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula, it gouged out a crater 150 kilometers wide and put so much soot and sulfur into the atmosphere that it created what was essentially a prolonged "nuclear winter." During that time, among so…

Donald Trump Is the Damn Emergency
Shared by Cherise | truthout.org | 2019-01-09
Donald Trump still has vast power at his immediate disposal. He can hire the worst people to fill vital posts. He can sign Executive Orders that allow the dumping of toxic chemicals into aquifers. He can continue to rip families apart at the southern border. He can ruin longstanding international relationships and cuddle up with despots and dictators. He can ignore the climate even as it comes crashing down around him. He can order an airstrike against any point on the map. He can peel the crust off the Earth with nuclear weapons if he so chooses. | That is an emergency. | Trump's Oval Office address last nigh…

Paul Manafort's Accidental Reveal: He Shared Trump Campaign Data With Russia
Shared by Cherise | truthout.org | 2019-01-09
President Trump gave his first prime-time Oval Office address on Tuesday evening, and it was as wooden and predictable as expected. He's not a good teleprompter reader and his speechwriters rarely offer up any lines worth remembering. This speech was especially vapid since it basically just reiterated what he's been saying in rallies and press avails for three years now — unauthorized immigrants and refugees are flooding into our country, bringing violent crime and disease with them, and we have to build a great big wall to stop them. These charges are either outrageously misleading or outright false, wh…

Freedom now for PFLP leader Ahmad Sa'adat
Fight Back | fightbacknews.org | 2019-01-08
It's time to step up the struggle to free Ahmad Sa'adat, a noted Palestinian political prisoner and General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). Sa'adat, who has been imprisoned for nearly 20 years, first by the corrupt and occupation-complicit Palestinian Authority, and now by the Israelis, has come to symbolize the resistance of the Palestinian people. He is a brilliant Marxist and advocate for socialism, who stands for liberation of every inch of Palestine. Sa'adat's courage in the face of the Israel's brutality shines as an example to everyone who yearns for a just world.
