Don’t let glib baloney assumptions fool us.

April 14, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

The public discourse — and politicians and media — are full of glib baloney and bogus assumptions. Do not let them fool is. THREE EXAMPLES:  The recurring rhetoric about “sustainable growth” is convenient baloney for those who profit from hurting the environment.  But the baloney rhetoric of “sustainable growth” is so pervasive that we must explicitly debunk it.  Nuclear weapons do NOT protect us.  Actually they endanger us because if anything goes wrong, we’d all be dead and the USA would become a radioactive ash heap. The private sector is lying when they say they can manage itself just fine […]

Prosecutor withheld evidence of her innocence, convicted her, and sentenced her to die

April 14, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

I have been studying the death penalty extensively since 1987.  Over and over again, we see that PROSECUTING ATTORNEYS are NOT seeking truth or justice.  THEY JUST WANT TO WIN, so they commit cruel acts, such as suppressing evidence that the defendant is INNOCENT. Here is yet another case of this.  It came from www.deathpenaltyaction.org   April 25, 2024 will be two years since the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals stayed Melissa Lucio’s execution date and ordered an evidentiary hearing. Why has the evidentiary hearing not been held? We know why. There was never a murder, so they have no […]

Republicans are deliberately breaking democracy so they can install a dictator

April 14, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

This is part of their methodology:  Posted Feb 1, 2024: Officeholders Under Siege In recent years, elected officials in local and state governments across the country have faced a barrage of intimidation. A troubling new Brennan Center report compiles national surveys of state legislators and local officeholders, and the results are stark. These threats and attacks have made officials wary of freely interacting with constituents, taking controversial positions, and even continuing in public service at all. Unaddressed, the problem stands to endanger not just individual politicians but the functioning of representative democracy itself.     Posted Feb 8, 2024: Thom […]

Our two political parties are ENEMIES OF HONEST DEMOCRACY

April 14, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

Political parties should derive their energy and support from the grassroots – and promote candidates that most voters want. But now we have two big, stupid corrupt political parties that are hell-bent to nominate for president two candidates who are OPPOSED BY MOST VOTERS, according to the opinion polls. But the parties don’t care about what the voters want.  They are dominated by political elites and economic elites.  They cram unpopular candidates down our throats. Indeed, both George W. Bush and Donald Trump LOST THE POPULAR VOTE, but the Supreme Court and the Electoral College (respectively) installed them as president.  […]

Biden appoints fossil fuel SUPPORTERS to powerful federal energy commission

April 14, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

Do you remember the 2020 presidential campaign when Joe Biden PROMISED to protect the climate? After taking office, some of his actions have HURT the climate!   He has approved horrible fossil fuel projects and refused to take many necessary actions.  Just recently he appointed THREE STRONG SUPPORTERS OF FOSSIL FUELS to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which for many years has rubber-stamped approvals for fossil fuel projects.  BIDEN IS CONTINUING THE STATUS QUO!!!  BIDEN IS HURTING THE CLIMATE!!! A credible non-profit organization posted this on March 25, 2024: We took a ton of actions last week to UnFrack FERC […]

The U.S. is planning for simultaneous wars against Russia and China!!! That’s “a strategic nightmare”!!!

April 5, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

President Biden has — for decades — been an EXTREME WAR HAWK — a fierce COLD WARRIOR.  He is continuing that now that he is President.  He has filled his administration with officials who strongly want wars against both Russia and China. Congress keeps appropriating more and more and more money for the Pentagon — and for provoking and escalating a new nuclear arms race.   This was posted on October 14, 2023.   Biden keeps escalating the crisis:  https://popularresistance.org/a-strategic-nightmare-sneaks-into-washingtons-political-agenda/

U.S. nuclear weapons polices have been RECKLESS, DANGEROUS, CRAZY for decades

April 5, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

This long article has fascinating – and frightening – information. Almost no Americans know how horribly reckless, dangerous, crazy the U.S. policies for nuclear weapons have been for many decades. This article was posted March 27, 2024: America’s Nuclear War Plan in the 1960s Was Utter Madness. It Still Is. We rarely consider the dangers these days, but our existence depends on it. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2024/03/nuclear-war-scenario-book-siop-weapons-annie-jacobsen/

Military “solutions” do NOT work anywhere — including NOT in Israel-Palestine

April 3, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

Military “solutions” do not work! They only make problems worse. Each side’s violence against the other side provides an excuse for retaliation. We must stop the cycle of violence. We must understand the root causes and use honest diplomacy (not bullying and threats) to solve the underlying problems.   During the Cold War – and again now – each side’s fear of the other has led to an escalation of nuclear weapons that are more technologically sophisticated – and DESIGNED to make it easier to start a nuclear war.  I have written about practical steps toward reversing that.   We […]

Organizing with 100% nonviolence works better than using even small amounts of violence

April 3, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

Many people assume there is a spectrum of organizing methods ranging from 100% nonviolence (nice, but not strong enough) to violence (powerful and effective.)  ACTUALLY, THAT ASSUMPTION IS FALSE!!! Actually, RESEARCH HAS PROVEN that adding any violence to an effort REDUCES the likelihood of winning.   I highly recommend the easy-to-read book by Erica Chenoweth and Maria J. Stephan – Why Civil Resistance Works – in which they researched a century of major campaigns for change.  They found that those that were scrupulously 100% nonviolent were much more likely to win than those that included some violence.  I mention this […]

Who Could Have Predicted the U.S. War in Somalia Would Fail? The Pentagon.

This article was posted on March 7, 2024:   Who Could Have Predicted the U.S. War in Somalia Would Fail? The Pentagon. A 2007 Defense Department study found glaring problems with America’s Horn of Africa campaign plan. The U.S. military plunged ahead anyway. https://theintercept.com/2024/03/07/pentagon-somalia-africa-terrorism-failure/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=The%20Intercept%20Newsletter

2 ways Trump’s courtroom behaviors PROVE he is GUILTY

April 3, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

Trump is in many kinds of legal trouble.  He reacts in TWO basic ways.  EACH of his behaviors PROVES that he is GUILTY! An innocent person would want a SPEEDY TRIAL in order to clear his good name.  But Trump keeps delaying, delaying, delaying, delaying.  This PROVES Trump knows he is GUILTY.  He wants to avoid accountability for his crimes.  That’s altogether different from an innocent person wanting a speedy trial to clear the defendant’s good name. An innocent person would want the judicial process to proceed fairly and honestly without unjust pressures and threats of violence.  But Trump keeps […]
