    Surviving one of the toughest re-election fights of his career, Representative Charles B. Rangel fended off four challengers on Tuesday to win the Democratic nomination for a 22nd term in Congress. “I’m just glad that my community has faith and confidence in me,” Mr. Rangel told reporters shortly before declaring victory at Sylvia’s, the famed Harlem restaurant. Mr. Rangel’s victory capped a gripping campaign for a Congressional seat that for decades has been at the center of black political power — and preserved a career in Washington that had been threatened by ethics troubles and changing demographics. Mr. Rangel was...

    One of the main groups organizing the Wisconsin union protests is a spinoff from an activist academy modeled after Marxist community organizer Saul Alinsky and described as teaching tactics of direct action, confrontation and intimidation. President Obama once funded that academy - the radical Midwest Academy. He has been closely tied to the group's founder, socialist activist Heather Booth. Obama also is closely tied to scores of other radicals behind the Wisconsin opposition protesting Gov. Scott Walker's proposal for most state workers to pay 12 percent of their health care premiums and 5.8 percent of their salary toward their own...

    Across the country Thousands in streets defend same-sex rights Right-wing churches bankrolled Prop. 8 in Calif. By Imani Henry Published Nov 12, 2008 2:26 PM The election victory of Barack Obama will go down in history as a triumphant step forward in the struggle against racism and national oppression in the U.S. Unfortunately, it was also an election where more than 10 million voters in Florida, Arizona and California supported right-wing ballot initiatives to deny marriage rights to lesbian, gay, bi and trans people. Thirty states now have constitutional bans on same-sex marriage. A proposal in Arkansas was also passed...

This time we are taking the unusual step of endorsing the candidacy of Cynthia McKinney because these are unique times and this is a unique candidate.

    Norfolk-based sailor uses Web to channel opposition to war By LOUIS HANSEN, The Virginian-Pilot © November 5, 2006 NORFOLK - Jonathan Hutto graduated from Howard University with a degree in political science and a résumé of social activism. He worked for the American Civil Liberties Union and Amnesty International after college. He whipped up grass-roots protests against police departments and college administrators. One day in 2003, broke and seeking direction, Hutto enlisted in the Navy. The Navy couldn't have known it then, but they know it now: They had signed up a sailor strongly opposed to the Iraq war. Seaman...

    Worker's World ^ | December 5, 2005 | Angelo Vescio
    Recent comments made by John Murtha have encouraged many people to stand up, and take notice. They are saying that John Murtha is their voice. The only unfortunate part of this is that they also happen to be the socialist voices in America. The self-proclaimed socialist propaganda site, "Worker's World" has thrown their support behind Democratic Congressman, John Murtha. The following is an excerpt from one of their (Worker's World) web postings by Fred Goldstein : START OF EXCERPT "The double talking of the Democratic Party leadership on the war flows from the fact that they are completely tied to...

    Organization hands out fliers, graffitis to get message out - There are only 16 days until the beginning of the end of the Bush regime, according to the World Can't Wait, a new political organization. The Austin chapter plans to be on campus and around town handing out fliers and actively advertising their cause. "This administration does not represent us ... even though they say they do," said Sonya Morales, head of the Austin chapter. Today marks the fifth day of encampment outside the White House counting down to Nov. 2, the day WCW has organized protest marches in 40...

    In its e-mail endorsing the antiwar rally held in Washington, D.C. over the weekend, Moveon.org took the unusual step of notifying its 3.5 million members that though it wanted people to attend the event, it had “disagreements on a range of issues” with the organizers. What the e-mail left curiously unanswered was what exactly constitutes the “range of issues” with which they disagree. Could it be spearheading the cause of Nazi war criminals? Or playing defense for the likes of other war criminals, including Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein? Or serving as defense attorney for one of bin Laden’s top...

    Dana Milbank and Alan Cooperman do a pretty good job of making John J. Tierney look like an alarmist nut based on their report of his presentation at the Heritage Foundation yesterday. His upcoming book apparently researches the funding and momentum behind the burgeoning anti-war protest industry and finds a lot of evidence that it primarily consists of unreconstructed communists. The Washington Post report of the event has Tierney painting a pretty broad brush on this score, however, and starts out by using what it believes to be a killer emotional rebuttal: Cindy Sheehan: anti-American communist? That was the accusation...

    Clinton Judge Emasculates Law Enforcement Agencies as Communist and Anarchist groups Plan Disruptions of Inaugural; Colombian Terrorists Target Bush for Death By Special Reports | January 18, 2005 Rulings by a Clinton-appointed federal judge, Gladys Kessler, have given unprecedented access to protesters to the inaugural parade route so that their "civil rights" may be protected. While the Washington Post and other Bush-bashing media are focusing on the cost of the January 20 Inauguration, a much more serious issue has emerged. Communist and anarchist groups may be planning to disrupt the inaugural and possibly commit violence. One organization sympathetic to a...

    Tony Murphy, Workers’ World Party 15-05-2002 Sisters and Brothers: In any political forum anywhere in the world, the question more and more is: What about the United States? What is the economic and political trend? After September 11, the question weighs heavily, with so much war and destruction againt the world's people, emanating from the Pentagon and Wall Street: What is going on in the United States? Are the people really supporting the war? Are they going to finally act against their government's wars? Many statistics abound on the state of the U.S. economy, on numbers of unemployed, the cost...
