Brother Larry Pinkney's first appearance on the Soapbox was right after Obama was inaugurated and the Soapbox has been honored to be graced with his trenchant analysis of The First Black President™ every January since then.

1/20/17: End of an Error and the Beginning of Another by Cindy Sheehan

Elitist rogues out on the town. Please, take a ride with me on Mr. Peabody's Wayback Machine to election night 2008: I was rather busy that night, because for the prior 18 months, I had set up "camp" in San Francisco on Mission St. in a campaign to defeat then Speaker of the House and treacherous Democrat, Nancy Pelosi. The first returns were bleak, I was getting single digit results, but we ended up with almost 17% and a second place finish--but, even though I think we did really respectably, this is not the focus of this recollection. That night, I received a phone call on my private cell-phone, I still Was it, really? have no idea who it was, because I couldn't understand his name, but he was literally screaming, "we did it Cindy! We did it! We got rid of Bush and elected Obama!"  First of all, "we" didn't do anything. I didn't support Obama in 2008 because I actually listened to what he said about promising more war a

Russian Scum!!! by Anthony Freda

Four prominent activists and truth-tellers are debunking the Russian Hack conspiracy theory.   WIlliam Binney, Glenn Greenwald, Julian Assange and Ray McGovern All say that the story being told by the discredited, state/corporate fake news syndicate that Russia hacked US elections is not true.    These brave experts and whistleblowers say there is no evidence to back up the official narrative.   Why is this hysterical Russophobic and NeoMcarthyistic narrative being promoted by Obama, Hillary and their minions in the corrupt mainstream media? Well, according to Assange, the reason is obvious.  "They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate president."  The same media and establishment that warns us of the dangers of alternative news is disseminating a fake news story that could provoke a nuclear conflict with Russia. Binney was a

Nuclear Waste by Anthony Freda

Image by Anthony Freda Nuclear power may be the most reckless and shortsighted technological misadventure in human history. "It's a helluva a way to boil water" Albert Einstein Nuclear power was sold as a cheap and safe alternative to oil, but when you factor in the cost of storing and protecting the radioactive waste for thousands of years, the cost is absurdly prohibitive. When you compute the risk/reward ratio, it is an utterly insane idea. From building nuclear plants on fault lines as in Fukushima or in populated areas like Indian Point, the hubris of the technocratic planners is unfathomable. The world's very first nuclear power station was erected in at Sellafield in the United Kingdom on the Cumbrian coast. This facility pumped unknown quantities of high-level radioactive waste into the Irish Sea for decades without concern for the consequences to life on Earth. By the 1980's Sellafield had ex

She married Patrick Sheehan and the couple had four children--Casey, Carly, Andy, and Janey. Casey was the oldest. The whole family was active in the church; Cindy was once a Youth Minister. They were a tightly knit family that, in Cindy´s words, “did everything together.” Cindy’s world changed forever when, on an April 4, 2004 missio in Sadr City, Iraq, Army Specialist Casey Sheehan was killed. Cindy and other military families met with President George W. Bush in June of 2004. By October, Cindy´s grief had led her to action. She wrote, “I was ashamed that I hadn’t tried to stop the war before Casey died…Well, I now felt that if

The World-Historic Achievements and Historical Significance of the Great October Socialist Revolution by RAY LIGHT

Excerpt: "Almost 50 years ago, I wrote: “Marxist-Leninists commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Great October Revolution because millions of Russian people were liberated from Tsarist exploitation and from French, German and British imperialist oppression. We commemorate this anniversary also because the people of the Ukraine, Finland, Georgia, and the other nations oppressed by tsarist Russian imperialism were liberated. “But the primary reason that we commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the October Revolution is the world-shaking importance of the dictatorship of the proletariat in the Soviet Union for mankind, in bringing mighty deathblows against the world capitalist system, in leading the struggle of the world’s peoples a long way down the path of eliminating the system of exploitation of man by man from the face of the earth.” (The Role of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat in the International Marxist-Leninist Movement: The October Revolution Vs.

Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox: New Era, New Energy by Cindy Sheehan

Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox has survived 8 years of the Obama regime and we are entering a new era and are filled with anticipation and excitement to continue the podcast, which (I believe) has provided some much needed left-wing, non-partisan perspective. For the past eight-years, many "progressive" talk shows, blogs, and media outlets have been nothing but cheerleaders for the wars and other oppression of the Obama administration. I predict that these, let's call them what they are: hypocrites, will find a renewed sense of radicalism as they rail against Trump with newfound outrage.   The Soapbox has never ceased to be a voice against Empire and for the end of the ravages of unbridled Capitalism. NEW LOOK The above graphic has been the banner for The Soapbox for  these eight years, and I think with a new era, we need a new look. My sister Dede Miller was the one in our collaboration that had the computer skills to make graphics, but the
