Jim Hightower lists this sequence of recent right-wing domination of U.S. Supreme Court decisions

May 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

This came from www.hightowerlowdown.org in relation to the leak of the U.S. Supreme Court’s upcoming decision overturning the past half century of women’s right to choose abortion:   With the leak of a draft Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, the right-wing takeover of the Court has now smacked us in the face. Meanwhile, Hightower has for many years preached about the particularly un-democratic nature of the Court – an unelected body of nine sitting in judgment for 340 million — and we thought we’d share some of our “greatest hits” on how we got here. Brush up on your […]

Republicans like to SAY they are “the party of Lincoln,” but they DO THEY OPPOSITE!

May 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Republicans like to SAY they are “the party of Lincoln, but actually they DO THE OPPOSITE!   Lincoln freed the slaves and fought the Civil War to end slavery, BUT: Republicans allow their party members to bring Confederate flags to Republican Party events. Republicans pass laws to prevent teaching school children about racial discrimination in U.S. history. Republicans have prevented immigrants from African nations. Republicans vigorously oppose efforts to reduce gun violence, even though Lincoln himself was murdered by a gun.   If Republicans REALLY were “the party of Lincoln, they would STRONGLY SUPPORT: Black Pride Black Lives Matter Teaching […]

Understand why people believe conspiracy theories

April 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

In recent years more and more people have been believing in conspiracy theories.  These have perverted public discussions of issues, and these have perverted all levels of government in wacky and dangerous ways.  These articles can help us understand this trend and why people believe conspiracy theories.   Political scientist explains why so many people were susceptible to QAnon myths:   https://www.alternet.org/2021/10/conspiracy-theory/?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=8074&recip_id=22838&list_id=2   The Fox News subscription service is pushing preposterous neo-Nazi conspiracies into the minds of American conservatives.  This article reports that Fox Nation host Lara Logan says evolution is a hoax funded by the Jews: Fox Nation host Lara […]

Progressives must “lean into” the “culture wars,” not run away from them

April 9, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

What should progressives be doing about our nation’s polarization about “culture wars”? This article was posted to an online source on November 5, 2021, and it is still relevant now and in months (and years) to come.   AMANDA MARCOTTE Democrats Can Win the Culture Wars — But They Have to Take On the Fight Early and Often Liberals are already winning the culture wars, which is why the right is so mad. Why won’t Democrats lean into it? Tuesday’s election, which was shockingly bad for Democrats even in an off-year, was a pandemic election. Sure, at first glance, it […]

Watch video recording of “Holding Israel Accountable: Remembering Rachel Corrie”

April 7, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

You can watch the March 16, 2022, event mentioned below at this link here on YouTube! On March 16, 2003, an Israeli military bulldozer ran over my friend Rachel Corrie, a young woman from Olympia, with whom I had worked on several peace-and-justice issues.  She was in Rafah, Gaza, nonviolently protecting a Palestinian family’s home from being bulldozed down in order to ethnically cleanse the area in order to make room for Israeli settlers to expand their occupation of Palestinian lands. Her family and friends created the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice (www.rachelcorriefoundation.org), and this Olympia-based organization has […]

“Economic Justice and a Strong Social Safety Net”

March 31, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

In case I did not post this TV interview before, here it is now:   “Economic Justice and a Strong Social Safety Net” The August 2020 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps us understand some of the realities of people who experience poverty.  Three guests with first-hand experience explore problems and solutions. We provide insights about poverty and welfare from the 1930s to today.  We replace the myths and misunderstandings with valid information and smart insights.  We discuss larger economic and political contexts and nitty-gritty realities in local welfare offices.  We affirm the need for “welfare rights” and […]

Trump needs to be President again in order to provide legal protection from accountability

March 31, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

I don’t think I ever posted this to my blog until now.  I wrote this blog post while Trump was President and people were pushing to impeach him and drive him out of office, so the headline I had prepared for this blog post was this: If Trump were to leave office, he’d face many prosecutions and prison sentences. EXPECT HIS COUP & CHAOS to escalate! Now much of this blog post is still relevant a few years after I had written it:   For years now, many psychologists and psychologists have exposed Trump’s extreme mental disabilities, including his narcissism […]

World Citizenship — See fascinating information here

March 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The April 2022 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” provides fresh insights and a creative alternative that can get the whole world unstuck from nationalistic antagonisms and endless wars. Wars have raged for thousands of years of wars, but they have never produced lasting peace.  The promoters of World War I promised that it would be “the war to end all wars.”  Have we had a century of peace since 1918? When we are chronically stuck in a dysfunctional system, we need to challenge the long-standing assumptions.  We need to think creatively – “think outside the box” – and choose positive […]

Now it’s CONFIRMED: Trump SIGNIFICANTLY DID UNDERCOUNT MINORITIES in the 2020 census.

March 12, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

In the past few years I have posted several news reports of Trump’s DELIBERATE, RACIST, PARTISAN abuse of the 2020 census in order to undercount minorities and unfairly help the Republican Party.  I have copied a few of them below — after THESE NEW CONFIRMED REPORTS that TRUMP DID INDEED SIGNIFICANTLY UNDERCOUNT MINORITIES.   NEW INFORMATION in March 2020:   A reliable source reported this on March 10, 2022:  The 2020 Census missed 18.8 million Americans – the biggest net undercount in three decades. The Census Bureau said that while the overall population total of 323 million was accurate, it […]

The Poor People’s Campaign is excellent at the national level and our statewide level.

February 24, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

More and more non-profit organizations that work on important issues (peace, climate, human rights, economic justice, etc.) are aligning themselves with the Poor People’s Campaign.  Some organizations are formally deciding to become “Mobilizing Partners.”  Our Olympia Coalition to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, our statewide anti-nuclear coalition, 350 Seattle, several parts of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, and many, many other organizations are doing this. This is a good way to work for economic justice, racial justice, and a range of issues.  It is a good way for single-issue groups to make alliances with other organizations across issues and with diverse constituencies.   […]
