Holder's Plans As Clear As Gonzales' Memory

Tag: Prosecution

"I don't recall" is now "that would depend." While then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, when testifying before Congress, was oddly unable to remember anything prior to that morning's breakfast, now Attorney General Eric Holder is oddly unable to forecast what, if anything, he will do to hold government officials accountable to the rule of law.

Healthcare Has a Chance on the House Side of the Hill, Peace Maybe Too

Tag: Health Care, Peace and War

By David Swanson

I left a hearing this morning at which senators debated the merits of torturing people (Lindsay Graham took the pro-torture side). I went to a rally for single-payer healthcare in Upper Senate Park. No senators were there. Yesterday Senator Baucus had more doctors and nurses arrested for asking to speak in a hearing. But House members, including John Conyers and Jim McGovern crossed the hill to be at the rally.

Baucus Arrests Five More Doctors, Nurses, Activists

Tag: Health Care

By David Swanson

Dr. Margaret Flowers, who was arrested along with seven others at the first Senate Finance Committee hearing on healthcare, just phoned me from the second one. As Chairman Max Baucus called the hearing to order, about 20 members of the California Nurses Association (CNA) stood and turned their backs on the committee. Pasted on their backs were signs reading: "Nurses Say: Patients First," "Stop AHIP," (referring to health insurance lobbyists), "Pass Single Payer."

Marcy Winograd Will Be the Best Member of Congress We Have in 2011

Tag: Elections

Here's what Norman Solomon says about Marcy, about Jane "cover up Bush's spying" Harman, and about challenging incumbents. Every incumbent should be challenged from the left in this country every time. Waiting for a candidate as awful as Harman is pretty low standards. If we're going to bomb people around the world in the name of democracy, the least we could do would be to have one!

National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance May 11, 2009

Attorney General Eric Holder United States Department of Justice 950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, D.C. 20530

Dear Sir:

We are writing on behalf of the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance. We are concerned citizens who tried to prevent the illegal invasion of Iraq. While we were unsuccessful, we have been devoting much time and energy to convince Congress to end the occupation. Over time we discovered that the Bush-Cheney administration has engaged in illegal behavior leading up to the war and afterwards.
