Over-worked and Underwhelmed: Fall Fundraiser for Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox

Dear Friends, I have been completely underwhelmed by the response to the Fall Fundraiser (but, a HUGE thank you to those few of you who have donated!) and I have been wondering if The Soapbox podcast is something that is even necessary at this time. I have been reflecting on the past nine years of amazing shows (I am working on a searchable archive of hundreds of shows right now) and I knew if I had to put The Soapbox aside, I have a deep well of wonderful guests/topics/history to offer. It is quite an important body of work, if I do say so myself. However, I went to speak at an event on Friday in San Francisco and the young woman sitting next to me was very excited about my talk, so I told her she should sign up for the newsletters. She said, "I listen to your podcast every week." With the addition of Dakotah's perspective and the energy I drew from the young woman in San Francisco, I cannot stop with Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox and I am excited that w

George W. Bush and Barack Obama: Kings of Pain by Cindy Sheehan

Giggling Mass-Murderers The facts don't lie. Under the regimes of George W. Bush and Barack Obama, millions of civilians in places such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and Yemen have been slaughtered, wounded, displaced and made desperately ill with the effects of toxins such as depleted uranium: the "gift" that never ends, literally---it has a half-life of 4.5 billion years. Now, "because Trump," the image of George W. Bush has been rehabilitated and (if one can believe polls) now enjoys a 59% approval rating. He left office with ratings in the mid-20's, which I thought were far too generous, at the time. Since the imperial agenda of W. Bush murdered my son in Iraq on April 04, 2004, my personal grief has expanded to become global in nature and I can't stomach any of this Bush-lite just because he has been critical of someone with whom his family has personal issues. Remember when Trump humiliated Jeb? Jeb, whom I believe was the

Canada Hands off Venezuela guest blog by Alison Bodine

  Canada Hands Off Venezuela! By Alison Bodine Today, Venezuela is facing increasing threats, sanctions and foreign intervention. The United States has been the leader of these attacks against Venezuela’s sovereignty, especially through illegal sanctions, threats of military intervention, and the funding of violent right-wing counter-revolutionary groups and political parties. Venezuela was even included in the latest version of U.S. President Trump’s shameful and inhuman travel ban. The U.S.-led campaign for “regime change” in Venezuela works hand-in-hand with Venezuela’s violent right-wing opposition. These counter-revolutionaries have attempted to overthrow the democratically elected government of President Nicolas Maduro through an economic war of hoarding, price gouging and other sabotage. They have also waged a violent campaign on the streets of Venezuela that resulted in the deaths of over 100 people in the four months between April and July, s

Burned Again: The Vietnam War Whitewash by Anthony Freda

   Image by Anthony Freda     We now know that The Gulf of Tonkin Incident ( the claim that two U.S. destroyers were attacked by North Vietnamese PT boats) was a lie.   This falsehood provided the moral pretext to launch a massive escalation of the Vietnam War. Johnson’s deceitful speech of Aug. 4, 1964, won accolades from editorial writers. The president proclaimed the New York Times, “went to the American people last night with the somber facts.” The Los Angeles Times urged Americans to “face the fact that the Communists, by their attack on American vessels in international waters, have themselves escalated the hostilities.” Without the benefit of real, independent journalism, the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution — a pseudo-declaration of war against North Vietnam — was approved by Congress on Aug. 7 . (Two brave senators, Wayne Morse of Oregon and Ernest Gruening of Alaska, provided the only “no” votes.) The resolution auth
