Dolores Huerta vs. Norman Solomon: A Debate on Best Path Forward for Democratic Party 8.6.2016 Truthout - All Articles
With Bernie Sanders vowing to continue fighting until the Democratic National Convention, we speak to Hillary Clinton supporter Dolores Huerta and Sanders delegate Norman Solomon on where the race goes from here. TRANSCRIPT: AMY GOODMAN: During last night's victory rally, Hillary Clinton addressed Bernie Sanders' supporters. HILLARY CLINTON: Now, I know it never feels good to put your heart into a cause or a candidate you believe in and to come up short. I know that feeling well. But as we look ahead -- as we look ahead to the battle that awaits, let's remember all that unites us. We all want an economy with more opportunity and less inequality, where Wall Street can never wreck Main Street again. We all want a government that listens to the people, not the power brokers, which means getting unaccountable money out of politics. And we all want a society that is tolerant, inclusive and fair. AMY GOODMAN: So, Norman Solomon, you're a Bernie Sanders delegate. Clearly, Hillary Clinton offering the olive ...

"Historic Moment for Women": Dolores Huerta on Hillary Clinton Declaring Victory in Democratic Race 8.6.2016 Democracy Now!
Hillary Clinton has claimed the Democratic presidential nomination on Tuesday night, pulling off victories in California, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota. Clinton is set to become the first woman to win a major party's presidential nomination. With only one primary to go in the District of Columbia, Clinton has an insurmountable lead in pledged delegates over her challenger, Bernie Sanders. But Clinton's pledged delegate count falls short of the 2,383 needed, meaning she will need to rely on the support of unelected superdelegates to officially secure the nomination at next month's convention in Philadelphia. We hear excerpts of Clinton and Sanders, and speak to longtime civil rights activist Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America with Cesar Chavez.

Hillary Clinton's Memoir Deletions, in Detail 31.5.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Hillary Clinton campaigns at a high school in Dunmore, Pennsylvania, April 22, 2016. Omissions from the paperback release of Clinton's memoir released shortly after she had launched her presidential campaign include references to Latin America, the TPP and the Arab Spring. (Photo: Eric Thayer / The New York Times) As was reported following the assassination of prominent Honduran environmental activist Berta Cáceres in March, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton erased all references to the 2009 coup in Honduras in the paperback edition of her memoir, Hard Choices. Her three-page account of the coup in the original hardcover edition, where she admitted to having sanctioned it , was one of several lengthy sections cut from the paperback, published in April 2015 shortly after she had launched her presidential campaign. A short, inconspicuous statement on the copyright page is the only indication that "a limited number of sections" -- amounting to roughly 96 pages -- had been cut "to accommodate a ...

Colorado GOP Officials Claim Hacker Posted Racist Obama Meme On Chair's Facebook Page 31.5.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Republican Party officials in Colorado claim a racist meme depicting President Barack Obama as a chimpanzee that was posted on a local chairwoman's Facebook page was the work of a hacker.  The image had been posted on the Facebook page of Linda Sorenson, chair of the Delta County Republican Central Committee . Initially, she told the Big Media website it was a joke.  " I really don’t care if people are offended by it ," Linda Sorenson, chair of the Delta County Republican Central Committee , told the Big Media website. "Un-friend me. Stop looking at me on Facebook." The image has since been removed, and local party officials now say a hacker did it to make them look bad. "This whole thing is a hoax. Someone got into the Facebook somehow ,” Vic Ullrey, vice chairman of the committee, told the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel. "It was hacked and somebody got into it, definitely." Another local official accused a progressive website of planting the image.  "We believe it has something to do with Media Matters. ...

Forged Federal Document Complicates A Growing Fight Over National Monument Designation In Utah 25.5.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Advocates of a contentious national monument designation for Utah's Bears Ears area are concerned that local residents will be misled about the designation dispute after forged federal documents and deceptive flyers addressing it were distributed in public spaces nearby. Cynthia Wilson, community outreach coordinator for Native American pro-monument group  Utah Diné Bikéyah , found the misleading documents  at a U.S. post office in Bluff and multiple gas stations in San Juan County in the past week. They include a falsified letter purporting to be from Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell that claims President Barack Obama is preparing to reduce the Navajo Nation by 4.15 million acres. The letter claims the Navajo no longer need their land in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, and thus it will be opened up for grazing and commercial purposes. "This was not sent out from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs or from the U.S. Department of Interior," a Department of Interior spokesperson said ...

I Am Not a Paid Hillary Troll 25.5.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
The internet is a bizarre, highly-curated universe. Deception abounds -- from false OKCupid profiles, to the Instagram accounts of fake-buttocked, dead-eyed "models" who desperately shill detox teas. Trolling is a sport. Misinformation and lies are a universal truth. Anyone trying to participate online should accept this. When writer and activist Shaun King announced that his Facebook page had been infiltrated by "1,000 paid Hillary Clinton staffers," I was skeptical. It's not that I don't believe him. I want to believe him. I follow his work, and have a great deal of respect for his social justice activism. But that is an incredibly specific claim to fling out into the universe without any supporting evidence. I posted a benign comment, asking how I might be able to spot such a troll, or if King had any examples of their activity on his page. Really? Checking my profile? You'll find some Mark Ruffalo pictures and super cute selfies. I is not a paid troll, I promise! It's been reported that the ...

Most Older Americans Now Say They Support Same-Sex Marriage 21.5.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Nearly a year after the Supreme Court's historical ruling on marriage equality, support for same-sex marriage among Americans age 65 and older is at all-time high.  A 2016 Gallup poll found that 53 percent of Americans 65 and older say they believe same-sex marriages should be recognized, with the same legal rights as traditional marriages. Although it's a 30-percent support drop from 18- to 29-year-olds, it's the first time since Gallup first polled on the issue in 1996 that the majority of older Americans said they think same-sex marriage should be fully legal. Forty-two percent of the same demographic said they supported same-sex marriage in 2014, up from 14 percent in January 1996.  The rise in support among older Americans is consistent with the statistics across the board. The poll, which was based on telephone interviews conducted earlier this month with 1,025 adults, found that 61 percent of Americans said they supported same-sex marriages, a slight increase from 60 percent last year.  Gallup ...

"Water Is Our Life": How a Mining Disaster Affected the Navajo Nation 16.5.2016 Truthout.com
Nearly a year ago, Environmental Protection Agency contractors accidentally released 3 million gallons of acid drainage from a Colorado mine, contaminating local rivers with hazardous metals and turning the waterways yellow. Just downstream, residents of the Navajo Nation continue to face threats to their health and livelihood. Wastewater from the Gold King Mine drains into retention ponds to eliminate contamination before it flows into the Animas River near Silverton, Colorado, August 15, 2015. (Photo: Mark Holm / The New York Times) In the midst of the ongoing water crisis in Flint, Michigan, it is not surprising that the World Health Organization recently released a report documenting that the environment is responsible for almost a quarter of deaths and disease in the world. But this is not news to the Diné (Navajo) people, who believe that all parts of nature -- the water, fish, trees and stars -- are equal members of society and are so intricately connected that an imbalance in one member may ...

Friday Talking Points -- Our 'Dopey Donald' Contest 14.5.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Today, let's just start with some silliness. It just seems appropriate, somehow. Maybe because it's Friday the 13th? For whatever reason, silliness seems like the place to begin (and end) this week. Because, after this silly start, we're going to end this column with a contest to come up with the best playground taunt to call Donald Trump -- and you can't get much sillier than that! There was both some sad news and some amusing news from the internet recently, so let's get the sad news out of the way first. There will be no "RSS Boaty McBoatface." The British government announced that after it had held an online contest to name its new polar research vessel, the will of the online voters would be ignored. "Boaty McBoatface" won in a landslide, but the vessel will not be christened the RSS Boaty after all. Instead, in a massively disappointing downgrade, one of the robot probe ships on board the research vessel will get the name instead. Our favorite tidbit from this story: one of the other ...

Calling Out McCrory's Munchausen by Proxy 13.5.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Pat McCrory has been cynically typing away on his Facebook page tonight: Pat McCrory rushed to sign HB 2 creating the danger of losing massive federal funding and on his Facebook page now claims to be a hero because the President sensibly doesn't pull funding while the DOJ defeats him in court, while unlike McCrory the President doesn't throw the people of North Carolina under the bus. Like the people of McCrory's home state of Ohio, most North Carolinians once fully informed are too intelligent to fall for that kind of nonsense. McCrory is swirling and it's hard to see how Republican party leaders haven't just abandoned him to finish the job of flushing himself (pun intended). Shame on him. McCrory should claim responsibility for his mess and fix it. This includes fixing the employment protections for hardworking North Carolinians that he stripped with HB 2. Since some still don't believe he did that and since much of the media incredibly continues to ignore this, I'm once more posting the link to HB ...
