The CDC blinked as Biden declares 'A great day!'

A Maskless US Heads Down a Dark Road as the Covid Pandemic Rages On

  In the clash between sound science and political pressure from anti-science crackpots in the United States, the Biden administration and the Center for Disease Control have blinked, announcing prematurely that people who are vaccinated can basically give up masking except when traveling on public transit or visiting health facilities. The idiocy and mendacity  of …

Children of color appear to be fair game for too many cops:

No More Police Killings of Kids!

  The latest police murder — and that’s what it was whatever the circumstances — of 16-old foster child Ma’Khia Bryant by a Columbus, Ohio cop, is sickening to watch. No way did that officer,  Nicholas Reardon, have to kill that young teenage girl. Maybe she had a knife, and maybe she was even planning …

The world's been going to s**t for too long

Enough with the Brinkmanship! Let’s Give Peace a F**king Chance

  President Joe Biden and his military and state department at a minimum had to have known that Israel’s Mossad was going to sabotage Iran’s Natanz nuclear processing site on April 11. If they hadn’t been warned in advance of that attack, and at least tacitly approved it, they would have publicly protested it.  Clearly …

OPINION:

Krasner’s stance on Mumia won’t cost him re-election, but it will stain his reputation as a reformer

By Linn Washington, Jr. and Dave Lindorff Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner deserves credit for ending the wrongful incarcerations of nearly 20 people. Krasner did what many of his predecessors did not: fulfill the legal and ethical duty of a district attorney to seek justice. Those wrongful convictions, which resulted largely from misconduct by police and …

Killers on the loose!

Biden’s and America’s Mental Illness is on Full Display

  It was just three weeks ago that our new “transformative” President Joe Biden joined that long almost unbroken list of war criminal presidents stretching back to #!, George Washington. Biden joined this disgraceful list by ordering a bloody aerial bombardment by US warplanes in eastern Syria. The US bombs, which were reportedly dropped on …

The biggest threat to US security is here at home:

Let’s Stop Pretending Russia and China are Military Threats

  Someone needs to say this, and it looks like it’s gotta be me: China and Russia are not our enemies. Somehow, the opinion-makers in the media, the bloated military brass with all their ribbons and stars and with little to do but worry about how to keep their massively overbuilt operation afloat with ever …

Once there was Rural Electrification, now we need rural Postal Service banks

Democrats Have a Huge Opportunity to Expand their Base and They’re Ignoring It

  Check out the map of so-called Red and Blue states, and also note how in the Red states, most Blue voters are jammed into more densely populated urban centers while the rural counties are almost  uniformly Red, ie: Republican. Now consider how important the Postal Service is in all that vast stretch of right-wing …

Joe Biden goes to war:

It Didn’t Take Long for This New President to Play Commander in Chief

  Well, here we are just over a month into the new Joe Biden presidential administration and he’s already launched a bombing attack in Syria. That seems to be a required action for presidents these days, certainly dating back at least to the Barack Obama administration. Biden personally ordered the bombing of a border crossing …
