Glenn Greenwald on Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff's Impeachment 29.8.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Embattled Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff is slated to testify today at her impeachment trial -- a trial that many are calling a coup by her right-wing political rivals. Rousseff has denounced the proceedings and called for early elections to unite the country. Rousseff's impeachment stems from accusations she tampered with government accounts to hide a budget deficit. She was suspended earlier this year and has maintained her innocence, accusing her political opponents of spearheading the proceedings to shield themselves from prosecution and undo years of progressive policies. The Brazilian group Transparency Brazil says 60 percent of Brazilian lawmakers are currently under criminal investigation or have already been convicted of crimes ranging from corruption to election fraud. Rousseff's opponents now need 54 votes, or two-thirds of the 81-seat Senate, to convict her of violating budget laws. Her impeachment would end 13 years of left-wing Workers' Party rule in Brazil and bring to power interim ...

The Methodist Church May Split Over LGBT Issues. Meet the Lesbian Bishop Caught in the Middle. 29.8.2016 Mother Jones
When the Reverend Karen Oliveto was asked if she would consider becoming a bishop in the Methodist Church, she wasn't sure what her response would be. "I don't want who I am—because I am so out—to harm the church," Oliveto said before pausing. "And I don't want to be harmed." But despite all the hostility within segments of the broader church community toward homosexuality, there was strong support from leaders in her district for elevating San Francisco's 58-year-old, openly gay pastor to the role of bishop with leadership over Methodist churches in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and two Idaho churches. Oliveto prayed on it and asked her wife, Robin Ridenour, a church deaconess, for advice. On a Saturday night, during one of their many conversations on the subject, Robin sighed and turned to Karen. "You know what? Perfect love casts out all fear," she said, quoting 1 John 4:18 in the Bible. "Maybe this is the time," Oliveto thought before she fell asleep. She had to give church leadership an answer ...

Anti-Abortion Groups Sue for Right to "Counsel" Patients Entering Clinics 28.8.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Anti-abortion groups are reasserting their claim that the First Amendment allows them to "counsel" patients entering clinics as well as set up religious "crisis pregnancy centers" adjacent to full-spectrum reproductive health care facilities. Opponents of abortion protest in front of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, March 2, 2016. (Photo: Gabriella Demczuk / The New York Times) Two anti-abortion organizations -- the Pro-Life Action League and the Live Pro-Life Group -- filed suit against the City of Chicago this week, claiming that the " Bubble Zone Ordinance " enacted on October 7, 2009 violates their constitutional right to "counsel" patients approaching reproductive health care facilities. In their suit filed on August 23, 2016, the plaintiffs cite both the US and Illinois Constitutions, claiming they "have suffered and are suffering irreparable injury to their constitutional rights" because they cannot approach patients inside an eight-foot "bubble" within 50 feet of an abortion clinic ...

Ohio Residents Clash With State and County Government in Fight to Ban Fracking Via the Ballot 28.8.2016 Truthout - All Articles
A 2012 anti-fracking protest in Ohio. (Photo: Josh Lopez / ) For years, local Ohioans have been told by courts and elected officials that they have no control over fracking -- "it is a matter of state law." However, groups of determined residents are refusing to accept this argument, taking steps to establish local democratic control over what they see as vital societal questions of health, safety, and planetary survival. But not without resistance from their own governments. In recent years, Ohio has seen  fracking-induced earthquakes , contaminated waterways, and new proposals for natural gas pipelines and compressor stations, all amidst the accelerating march of climate change. Together, these events have brought the fight against fracking to a fever pitch for the Buckeye State.   Fed up, residents have taken to the local ballot initiative process -- by which citizens write, petition for, and vote on legislation -- to propose "Community Bill of Rights" ordinances to ban fracking, injection ...

Disrupting the Myth of Franklin D. Roosevelt in the Age of Trump, Sanders and Clinton 28.8.2016
The 2016 presidential election cycle and its three prominent candidates are being held up as representing polarizing interests that are emblematic of the political, economic and cultural tensions of our time. Yet, a look back at the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt reveals some familiar tones and policy positions that capture those of Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. As president, Roosevelt is widely celebrated by American "progressives" for fathering the New Deal, which encompassed financial regulations, union rights and a number of social programs. While FDR's extramarital affairs are well known, what is less known is his racist and anti-Semitic worldview and white supremacist loyalties, which contributed to the suffering and death of millions of the most vulnerable people. Many understand the New Deal as a program to save US capitalism based on Keynesian interventions meant to soften its blow via social programs and collective bargaining rights, while simultaneously regulating the ...
