Literally and Figuratively Spinning our Wheels for Peace by Cindy Sheehan

There are millions of mothers mourning the deaths of children today (and every day) ten years after Shocking and Awful.  Some of the mothers on the American "side" take false comfort in the lie that the war was justified and view their sons or daughters as “heroes” who died “keeping America safe” or some crap like that. However, there are a few of us who know the facts: the war was “justified” by lies and fought for profit and control of resources and our kids are lying in permanent graves for temporary and temporal gain. So, what’s happening now? Obama is president, the wars are over, our troops are home, Iraq is rebuilt and peaceful, and the oceans have stopped rising, George and Dick have been held accountable? Actually, none of these things are true, yet we see few people out protesting anymore. There has been some good energy around the case of Pvt. Bradley Manning and his persecution by the Obama regime. Of course, Manning in being persecuted for e

Let Them Eat GMOs (Soapbox Podcast 3/31/13)

Today, on this lovely Spring Sunday, Cindy Sheehan interviews activist , Anita Stewart, about an article that Anita read about comments ma de by Florida Congre ss Rep and DN C Chair, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. DSW was lamenting over th e fact that her highly paid staffers were "going hungry" bec ause of the Republicans. Here is the article that got Anita's ire up. With the fact that Congress passed, and Obama signed the bill that inclu ded Bio-Tech protection for compani es, p rimarily Monsanto, that are pois oning our food supply with GMOs, bovi ne growth hormone (BGH) and other harmful genetic engineering. Obama is Monsanto's Best lobbyist. Our government and the corporations have declared war on the  American people and it's time WE FIGHT BACK! The so-call ed Monsanto Protection Act expires in six months , we must force Monsanto (agent oran ge, dioxin, pcbs, Roundup) out of our food sup

Latest Endorsements For The Tour de Peace - 3/28/2013

"I am so in awe of Cindy Sheehan’s perseverance and constant creativeness in devising actions and efforts to raise the public’s consciousness of the costs and horrors of war, war crimes, and war profits—along with the public and private corruption on every level that always accompanies the pursuit of imperialist EMPIRE (or rather as we now call it: “full spectrum dominance”) and which is rotting the U.S. from the inside. Blowback! I have always loved bicycling and even have competed in triathlons since my 40’s. So, even though the “Tour” doesn’t come through Minnesota, I will try to figure out a way to join some portion of it down south. At the very least, I will participate in spirit. If nothing else, I can order and wear the “Tour de Peace” t-shirt in the various Minnesota triathlons this summer and maybe lead a bike ride in solidarity! So go ahead and add Minnesota to the list of states that the “Tour de Peace” is coming through!" - Coleen Rowley, Former FBI Agent, 2002 Ti

Latest Endorsements For The Tour de Peace - 3/26/2013

"As a 9/11 First Responder, I am all too familiar with the 9/11 atrocities and how they have been used and abused. Right now, the 9/11 First Responders are fighting to make sure the sequester doesn't affect monies from the James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act, an Act we spent years fighting for. I wholeheartedly support Tour de Peace, and I want these wars to end." - Reggie Cervantes, 9/11 WTC Survivor Rescue Worker "Let us join together as a coherent force for peace. Let us tap the great yearning for peace in the hearts of people in this country and throughout the world . None of the wars perpetrated or covertly supported by U.S. leaders is really 'humanitarian' in intent or impact. Instead of inciting fear among the American populace, let us cry out strong and clear for peace. Let us remind our compatriots that there is strength and security in peace, and unending threat and destruction in military aggrandizement. With peace our friends and al

Syrian Crisis

John, a friend from Facebook, submitted this to Cindy to post. - (Jon) John Mesler 3/24/2013 I began my research on the current crisis in Syria wanting to know two basic things. I wanted to know if Bashar Al-Assad was really responsible for the deaths of over 70,000 Syrian civilians (as we in the West have been led to believe) and I wanted to know how most Syrians viewed their President. If they had an opportunity to hold a fair election, would he be voted in by the majority of Syrians? After nearly 10 months of interviewing nearly 100 Syrians (mostly citizens still living there but also some x-patriots living abroad) I have come to as close a conclusion that can be achieved from 6,000 miles away without actually going to Syria. Let me begin by explaining how this current uprising started.

Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox The US Empire's War ON Iraq has lasted for a decade now. I am sure, I don't have to convince supporters and fans of Cindy Sheehan 's Soapbox that the US E mpire's Illegal and Immoral War on the people of Iraq was/is wr ong. The War Crime of Iraq was/is just one more notch in the bloody belt of Em pire, and we must tell the stories and never give up the fight for peace: no retreat, no surrender. On this week's Soapbox, Cindy c hats with the  father of LaVena J ohnson , Dr. John Johnson. LaVena was murdered in Iraq on July 19, 2005. The Johnson s were told th at their daughter committed suicide and her character was assassinated, also. Through years of relent less quest for truth, the apparent story is that LaVen a was ( by fellow troops) brutally se xually  assaulted, beate n , and her body was burned to hide the eviden ce--while  key parts of her an
