It's not just One Civil Rights Nominee Squashed
It shocked civil rights supporters and progressives in general when Debo Adegbile was rejected by the Senate after wild stories about him supposedly having been at Mumia supporting events, such as the naming of a street for Mumia in Paris flooded the internet. For progressive sites the disaster supposedly ended with Debo Adegibile being rejected by the Senate. However right-wing millionaires and the FOP have their political guns pointed at the Democratic senators who voted for him. Only Cory Booker of NJ is considered too entrenched to try to defeat. In dire danger of being successfully smeared as a supporter of cop killers are Mark Begich (AK), Jeanne Sheehan (NH), Mary Landrieu (LA) and Key Hagan (NC.,
There is something about Mumia abu-Jamal that is more upsetting to his opponents then racism. The fact that unlike other prisoners he doesn't have any public complaints about prison conditions and sometimes brutal guards and policies such as being put in the hole. He had however according to his ...
A building collapsed into an open store despite several complaints to the city and the site that something was wrong, such as no hardhats and a wall still standing over an open store.

He was a self-employed licensed city contractor with his wife as the bookkeeper. She was also the bookkeeper for Griffin Cambell Construction, the demolition firm that finagled getting Sean listed as a city contractor. Sean was overjoyed that he was finally overcoming his handicap of being an ex-con with a marijuana background because of his stingy boss's unexpected gift.
On the job he was paid cash at the end of the day like the other employees and had no assurance that he would be hired the next day, except that his wife might have quit in response and with her computer skill and other background found another job quite easily. By being called a contractor he didn't ...
Today people are blaming Hilary for Benghazi attack
No one wants to blame a dead Ambassador, Chris Stevens, for being persistently careless.
Speaking fluent Arabic and having many Arab friends gave him and independence not seen since J Edgar Hoover dominated the FBI. Ambassador Stevens was responsible for blaming the hate Muslim porn flick for the attack at least until he died.

No catch, unless AOL sponsorship is a catch
Circumstance has changed things.
Much of the hard US Right is pro-peace. Russia is now more pro-peace than the US. Much of the formerly independence seeking Kurds in Iraq now dutifully try to patch up differences between Iraqi Shiites and Sunnis to prevent Turkey from seizing and independent Kurdistan.
One thing that tends to be the same is that many who long for peace still do so. However is the road for peace for the peace movement to continue being reluctant to criticize al Qaeda? A major source of the new anti war interest with ordinary Americans is the claim the US is siding with ...
