We are the “greatest country in the world” but we can’t provide healthcare or jobs to our citizens? We have the ability to clothe, house and feed every human but we don’t? Why not?

Voices of the California Progressive Alliance

“Support for Bernie Sanders is definitely one of the threads uniting most of those here today. The California Progressive Alliance voted to endorse him, and there’s tremendous support for him here in California.” – Whitney Leigh, California Progressive Alliance Steering Committee

John Kerry helped George Bush steal the 2004 election, not the...

Kerry knew that George Bush and the Republican Party stole the 2004 election from him in Ohio after his voters reported that their votes appeared as Bush votes even though they pulled the lever for Kerry, and after people in majority Democratic districts stood in long lines in thunderstorms and torrential rain waiting to vote (or went home) while majority district Republicans voted easily.

Pachamama and the Pope

Should UN peacekeepers leave the Democratic Republic of Congo?

Donald in the Donbass, Biden in the crossfire

“Zelensky is desperate to end the war. His electoral landslide was the result of this promise, and his anti-corruption theme, which is related. His presidency – even his life – depends on it,” says Princeton and NYU Professor Emeritus Stephen F. Cohen. So why did Zelensky want another $400 million worth of military aid that could only escalate the war?

Rwanda: Victoire Ingabire endures relentless interrogation

The powerful and wealthy nations who send foreign aid to Rwanda need to understand that they are supporting an unstable, unsustainable government because there is no space for people to speak freely and peacefully and engage in real democratic process in Rwanda. Shutting down political space risks the return of mass violence to Rwanda sooner or later. I have devoted my life to preventing its return.

Hillary busts Tulsiasha Gabbardskaya and Jillia Steinakanova: What could go wrong?

Those sympathetic to the allegation that Trump is a stooge of the Kremlin claim that the Russians sought to use social media to alienate voters against Hillary Clinton. But with $1 billion at his disposal, why couldn’t Clinton’s campaign advisor figure out how to use Clinton’s social media to win votes for her.

Foreign aid for Rwanda, suffering for Rwandans and Congolese

Asked how Kagame fits all the money gained by plundering Congo’s immense resources into his budget, David Himbara, a former member of Kagame’s cabinet, replied, “DR Congo money does not go into the Rwandan economy. The loot goes into offshore accounts of Crystal Ventures Ltd and its owner, Kagame.”

Rwanda’s Victoire Ingabire: I will not live in fear of prison...

I want the government to show us who killed all these members of the opposition in Rwanda and what happened to those who have disappeared.

Russiagate fanatic Michael Isikoff’s curious project

The Democratic National Press (DNP) had to find someone to blame besides the Democrats and their own thieving national committee, so we were subjected to the two-year, $30 million Russiagate investigation that finally ended with the grudging conclusion that there’s no evidence to indict Trump.

Pentagon manhunt for Julian Assange preceded Swedish rape allegations

The fact that the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security were launching this manhunt for Julian Assange six weeks prior to the Swedish incidents completely reframes the context of the situation that Julian was in in 2010. And the idea that he was only wanted for any issue relating to Sweden is a complete fallacy. They were after him six weeks prior to the Swedish incidents.
