Syphilis vs. Gonorrhea

Clinton vs. Trump: Syphilis vs. Gonorrhea. Donald Trump belches a line that emboldens a racist movement. But his policies — to the extent he has any — in reality would be less destructive than Hillary Clinton‘s, especially when it comes to U.S. foreign policy. As one writer — Ralph Lopez — commented, “Trump is like […]

THE SELLING OF NYC’S PUBLIC LIBRARIES

It started under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who put so much of New York City’s public space up for sale …. er, “development”. Whether it was community gardens, the City’s water supply under Rudy Giuliani, public hospitals, parks, housing, public radio, prisons, or public libraries, NYC’s 3-term billionaire Mayor prettified the theft of public resources by […]

STEALING THE NY PRIMARY FOR HILLARY – BERNIE, WATCH OUT!

BY MITCHEL COHEN “No one knows who Bernie Sanders is”, said U.S. Congressional representative Charles Rangel just 3 months ago, as Rangel once again endorsed Hillary Clinton. “I never consider Senator Bernie Sanders to be in the same professional standard for the president as I do Hillary Clinton, not by a long shot.” – U.S. […]

THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF BERTA CÁCERES

WHAT DO TERRORISTS EAT?

The following letter by Mitchel Cohen was published in the Linewaiters’ Gazette, the newspaper of the Park Slope Food Coop. Let me ask a question: What do terrorists eat? Halal? Kosher? Organic?

30 YEARS AGO: THE GREAT AMERICAN LYING MACHINE

Thirty years ago I wrote this essay. I solicit your feedback on how the same patterns used then — Secretary of State Alexander Haig‘s holding-up for the cameras of falsified photographs (which was itself a repeat of Sen. Joe McCarthy‘s use of cropped photos in the Army-McCarthy televised hearings in 1954, as shown in the […]

DAYS OF ATONEMENT

Some outrages are worse than others. Still, why should we set one injustice against the other, as though seeking greater exhibitions of revulsion at the one oppression or injustice than at the other. And yet we do. The murder of Eric Garner last year at the hands (literally) of one of New York’s “Finest” is […]

REMEMBERING ADAM PURPLE

WIDE ASLEEP IN AMERICA: SLAUGHTERING THE TRUTH & THE FALSE CHOICE OF WAR ON IRAN

Yes, support the “Iran Deal”. However, there has been so much propaganda around the “Iran Deal” that even peace organizations have been sucked into supporting it for the wrong reasons, repeating the “preventing a pathway to nuclear weapons” line and joining the “Stop Iran!” hysteria.
