Farmers. The Romans coined the phrase referring to country folk, those that worked with the natural cycles of the Earth. Later became associated with Earth based religions like the Celts and most tribal societies all over the planet. It is how the Romans dehumanized the tribal peoples of Europe, saying they were heathen savages, to justify warring with them and conquering them, a trick most war mongering nations do right up until today. Does this sound familiar at all?

McCain Chased Off Reservation By Pissed-Off Navajo Activists



In a stunning action that was long overdue, a group of native Navajo Americans chased Senator John McCain out of the Navajo Nation capital of Window Rock — making it perfectly clear he was unwelcome in the first place.

McCain was visiting the Nation in commemoration of Navajo Code Talker’s day, and perhaps for a moment thought he would get by listening to polite pleas from Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye and Vice-President Jonathan Nez to back a Congressional appropriation to fund the construction of a Navajo Code Talkers Museum. According to a report from Native News Online.Net, however, the Nation’s leaders chose the moment to focus on the EPA tragedy unfolding via the Gold King Mine spill into the Animas and San Juan Rivers. ...

John Kasich, the Republican governor of Ohio – who is generally considered less extreme than Texas Senator Ted Cruz, less dynastic than former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and less crazy than professional troll Donald Trump – recently said : “If I were, not president, if I were king in America, I would abolish all teachers’ lounges where they sit together and worry about ‘woe is us’.”


Kasich addressed a New Hampshire “education summit” sponsored by the 74 Million , an education “news site” which Huffington Post points out is run by failed CNN host Campbell Brown “despite having little to no training in education, and never having taught students herself.” Many other Republican presidential hopefuls, including Governors Bush, Scott Walker of Wisconsin, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Chris Christie of New Jersey, addressed the gathering.


Republicans love to hate teachers and imply that all the ills of US society are the result of their laziness. If only schools could be turned over to market forces and not held back by greedy teacher unions, conservative logic goes, everything would be fine – even though charter schools perform no better than traditional schools. Trying to bust unions in general (and those of teachers in particular) turns conservatives on as much as trying to deny climate change , defend the NRA , defund Planned Parenthood or battle for a check from the Koch brothers.


But trying to deny teachers a place to rest for a few minutes between classes, as Kasich is fantasizing about, is ludicrous. What’s wrong with having a place to eat a snack between classes or talk to other teachers about lesson plans and their common students without 30 children within ear shot?


According to Politico’s analysis of Kasich’s 45 minute conversation with Brown, the Republican hopeful wants to remove teachers’ lounges to keep educators from complaining to one another and, presumably, to keep them from colluding in greed to protect their benefits and working conditions. Imagine the possibilities. Without a place to meet, teachers – who already work alone in most classrooms – could be even more isolated. Sure, they’d be unable to exchange teaching techniques or ideas for improvement, but they’d also be working with more alienation.


Politico notes that Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers (which has already endorsed Hillary Clinton ), asked Kasich on Twitter : “after u get rid of places teachers eat lunch, what’s next -getting rid of teachers’ chairs so they stand all day?”


But this has already happened long ago at least at one non-unionized charter school I know. Years ago, I reported about the Imagine Me Leadership Charter School in Brooklyn – a publicly funded, privately managed school housed in a church complex in Brooklyn – where teachers were not allowed to have desks in their rooms.


As the principal told me in 2011: “We believe teachers need to be on their feet, working with the kids.” Every minute of every day. So forget the lounges: sitting has become stigmatized for teachers, even at a desk. The idea that a teacher might need to sit – say, to grade a paper, write down attendance or give their feet a moment’s rest during a long day – was recast as a potential cause for poor student performance.

but your post does bring to mind this: while the right wing continues to attack Obama, and while media focus is on the forthcoming elections, there is far too little scrutiny on Congress - why do you suppose they have managed to keep themselves free of criticism despite their obvious ineptitude?

Pic Of The Moment: Amid Stiff Competition, The Award For Biggest Lie Of The GOP Debate Goes To...



Fiorina defends citing nonexistent abortion video

Fact-Checking Carly Fiorina’s Debate Statements on Planned Parenthood

The POLITICO Wrongometer

FactChecking the CNN Republican Debate


RUNNERS UP, from FactCheck.org:

• Donald Trump told a story linking vaccination to autism, but there's no evidence that recommended vaccines cause autism.

• Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said that Hillary Clinton was "under investigation by the FBI" because she "destroyed government records." Not true. She had the authority to delete personal emails.

• Trump said that "illegal immigration" cost "more than $200 billion a year." We couldn't find any support for that. Actually, it could cost taxpayers $137 billion or more to deport the 11 million immigrants in the country illegally, as Trump proposes.

• Trump again wrongly said that Mexico doesn't have a birthright citizenship policy like the United States. It does.

As CEO of HP, Fiorina Violated U.S. – Iran Sanctions: Selling Millions of Computers to Them


As CEO of HP, Fiorina Violated U.S. - Iran Sanctions: Selling Millions of Computers to Them


GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina likes to portray herself as a hard-liner on Iran. However, during Fiornia’s six-year tenure at Hewlett-Packard between 1999 and 2005, the company sold more than $100 million worth of computers and other high-tech equipment to Iranian customers, despite US export sanctions at the time. It’s a small detail she has neglected to mention while on the campaign trail.

How did HP do it? The usual corporate schemes: the products were channeled through one of HP’s European subsidiaries, and sold through an IT distributor in Dubai, known as Reddington Gulf. The sales continued long after HP sacked Fiorina. By 2007, more than 40% of printers sold in Iran bore the HP trademark.

HP had started skirting Iran sanctions in 1997, two years before Fiorina came on board. By that time, sanctions imposed by the Clinton Administration had been in place for two years. However, there was a loophole in the law that allowed HP to do business in Iran “legally,” albeit indirectly. Under the rules in place at the time, foreign subsidiaries of American companies were considered outside of US jurisdiction. Nonetheless, the issue came to the attention of the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2009 because of concerns that the equipment might be used for military or terrorism-related purposes. HP’s legal department claimed that, because the subsidiaries were not “United States [corporate] person(s),” they were not subject to US sales restrictions.

Fiorina continued the HP scheme to get computers to Iran after she took over as CEO. Her compliance in violating US sanctions against Iran was highlighted in the Boston Globe in 2008 when Fiorina was attempting to unseat California Senator Barbara Boxer. The issue torpedoed her campaign then – and it could very well sink Fiorina again. Senator Boxer thought so when she told MSNBC: “So she’s got so many problems. I say if the Republicans choose her, we’ll walk into the presidency.”

During the first GOP debate, Fiorina declared that on her first day in office she would call Iranian leader Ali Khameni with the following message: “Until you open every nuclear and every military facility to full, open, anytime/anywhere inspections, we are going to make it as difficult as possible for you to move money around.” As CEO of Hewlett-Packard, however, Fiorina had no problem with Iran moving money into her own company’s coffers.

It reminds us of another American businessman-turned Republican politician who got wealthy doing business with a government hostile toward the US. His name was Prescott Bush – and the country in which he was doing business was Nazi Germany.

Some things never change…

Latinos are fighting Republican racism by registering voters



Latinos are fighting Republican racism by registering voters




Republican presidential candidates have been making racist remarks about Latinos in the U.S., and they aren't falling on deaf ears. Those same candidates choosing to skip July's National Council of La Raza conference in Kansas City—which was attended by Democrats Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O'Malley—didn't go unnoticed. Acting as if Latinos don't matter in U.S. elections is not only bad politics, it is the height of political stupidity. Latinos listen.
Latinos are answering the blatant racism and xenophobia with calls for action, and one primary action will be getting people registered to vote and to the ballot box.

The Latino Victory Project has released an ad in both English and Spanish with actors speaking the words that have dripped like venom from the mouths of Republican candidates who aspire to the nation's highest office, ostensibly to represent all Americans.

Here's the English version:




Keep reading below for more on the Latino electorate, the history of Latino voter registration, and how you can get involved.

It's currently in National Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15 to October 15. It's often surprising how little most people in the U.S. know about that history. For those of us who are active Democrats and engaged in organizing for change, it is even more important that we pay much more attention to learning the history of the multiple communities that make up the demographic category called Hispanic or Latino, and about contemporary organizations and organizers who work within those communities.

Recently, when I asked students here in New York to name key civil rights figures from the Latino community, most were stumped. A few could name Cesar Chavez from the United Farm Workers (UFW). None knew the story of one of the most important Latino figures who mobilized and organized Latino voting power—Willie Velásquez.

Willie was known for his battlecry, "Su voto es su voz" (your vote is your voice) and it is fitting that his biography carries that refrain in the title.

The Life and Times of Willie Velasquez: Su Voto Es Su Voz was written by Rhodes scholar Juan Sepulveda.

Book cover: The Life and Times of Willie Velasquez: Su Voto Es Su Voz, by Juan Sepulveda
William C. "Willie" Velásquez, Jr. founded the Southwest Voter Registration and Education Project (SVREP) and was an influential participant in other leading Latino rights and justice groups, including the Mexican American Youth Organization (MAYO) and the Mexican American Unity Council (MAUC). From the late 1960s until his untimely death in 1988, Velásquez helped Mexican Americans and other Hispanics become active participants in American political life. Though still insufficiently appreciated, Velásquez holds a unique status in the pantheon of modern American civil rights figures.
Velásquez’s work on voter rights and registration triggered an unprecedented mobilization of Latino voters in pivotal electoral states across the U.S., including California, Illinois, and Texas. Today, as Latinos emerge to constitute America’s new minority of record, with growing reach into other major states, such as New York, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, and North Carolina, Hispanc American political influence, drawing on Velásquez’s legacy-can only become more significant in the years to come.

Former Rhodes Scholar and Velásquez protégé Juan A. Sepúlveda, Jr.’s biography provides a first, definitive glimpse into Velásquez’s life and times. Based on Sepúlveda’s close personal relationship and exchanges with Velásquez during the SVREP founder’s final years, and over a dozen years of research and writing, the book chronicles Velásquez’s influences, his landmark contributions to American civic culture, and his enduring legacy.

From the foreword by Henry G. Cisneros:
The night that Willie Velásquez was taken from us by cancer, his brother George stood by his bedside. George later told me that as Willie’s last moments neared, he whispered, “Qué bonito mundo nuevo.” His words translate roughly as, “What a beautiful new world it is!”
It is impossible to know precisely what Willie meant. Those of us who believe in the hereafter may surmise that Willie saw a glimpse of the spiritual world toward which he was moving that night. But he may also have been reflecting on the new world he had already helped create on earth and anticipating its beautiful progression. We now know that Willie’s work—profoundly American, fair-minded, and full of love for the marginalized and striving—has created a better world of inclusion, of possibilities, and of dreams fulfilled.

Few Americans have had as much influence over American electoral participation and representation in the modern era as Willie Velásquez. Willie’s efforts as a political organizer and builder of community-based institutions helped elevate American Latino voter participation to levels commensurate with our growing population numbers, following more than a century of institutionalized exclusion. Today, largely based on work Willie began, Latino voters and elected officials play an increasingly significant role in enhancing the nation’s quality of life through the election of our public leaders and through interventions that shape policies.

This video, titled Remembering Willie, has interviews with people who worked with him, or were affected by his work.




In 1995, Willie was posthumously awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton. In 1996, his name was attached to the US Senate version of the Voting Rights Reauthorization and Amendments Act of 1996. In 2013, the Texas legislature passed a bill to make May 9th the Willie Velásquez Day of Recognition.
Born on May 9, 1944, in the west side of San Antonio, Texas, Willie founded SVREP (SVREP - Su Voto Es Su Voz) in 1974, to focus on empowering the Latino community through its political participation in the American democratic process. During SVREP’s first fourteen years, Willie organized a massive Latino Vote Campaign to increase the voting power of the Latino community across the southwest. He focused on nonpartisan voter registration efforts and winning voting rights lawsuits. In 1985, Willie launched Southwest Voter Research Institute (renamed William C. Velásquez Institute in 1997, The William C. Velasquez Institute (WCVI) ) to develop research and policy for the growing cohort of Latino elected officials. In 1988 with Willie’s untimely death, hundreds of opinion and community leader and elected officials, from all walks of life – Latino, White, black, offered their respects to a man who worked to empower the Latino vote.

With a folding chair and table, a phone book and rotary phone, Willie began his legacy. He called potential voters, one at a time, then registered them. Willie also understood that expanding the Latino vote would not fix the structural barriers that prohibited Latinos and other ethnic communities from equal representation and having a voice. So Willie sued cities, counties and school boards – transforming the political landscape in the southwest. When Willie opened SVREP doors, 2.1 million Latinos were registered to vote. Today, over 14.3 million Latinos are registered to vote. SVREP has registered 2.6 million Latino voters, won 85 voting rights lawsuits and trained over 150,000 Latino leaders.
Willie coined the phrase, used widely and nationally, “Su Voto Es Su Voz”.

Sadly, Velásquez died at age 44, but his legacy continues in the work of organizations across the U.S. which are continuing to mobilize.
The organization he founded, SVREP, has expanded its efforts to many parts of the country.

Today, SVREP conducts voter activities in some 14 states including:
Southwest

Arizona
California
Colorado
Nevada
New Mexico
Texas
Utah

Southeast

Florida
North Carolina
Georgia
Virginia

Pacific Northwest

Washington
Oregon
Idaho

It is estimated that SVREP has registered 2.5 million voters since 1974.

Next on my list is Mi Familia Vota






The story of Mi Familia Vota Education Fund (MFV ED) begins in California, where generations of Latinos have worked and struggled to make their voices heard; their contributions recognized; and their issues incorporated as an integral part of the American agenda. In the 1950’s, organizations such as the Community Service Organization, (CSO) pioneered citizenship and voter registration activities that expanded the Latino electorate and resulted in the election of office-holders throughout the state.
...
MFV ED focused its Get Out The Vote (GOTV) efforts in Arizona, Texas, Colorado and Nevada, while continuing its partnership with the community organizations and the media. The outcome was a turnout of 9.7 million Latinos, an increase of 2.2 million over the 2004 election. In 2009, the YA ES HORA-HÁGASE CONTAR (Now is the time: make yourself count) campaign focused on encouraging participation in the 2010 Census. MFV ED once again played an important role, along with its partners, in providing information and advocating for full participation. After the census, the campaign, now named YA ES HORA-VE Y VOTA (Now is the time: go and vote), encouraged the community to turn out and vote in the election. As a result, the Latino vote is widely credited with being the decisive vote in the outcome of the 2010 congressional and senatorial races in California, Colorado, and Nevada. As a result, the Latino vote has now become a sought after commodity during the 2012 election. MFV is proud of the role it has played throughout its history in making this possible. In 2012, MFV ED has expanded its operations, in addition to Colorado, Nevada, Arizona and Texas, to Florida and once again California.
MFV ED has become one of the premier civic engagement organizations in the country, with a trained and skilled cadre of professionals dedicated to the empowerment and civic participation of the Latino community. Its goal is, and will continue to be, to fuel non-partisan, grass roots civic engagement that will advance and promote social and economic justice for the Latino community.

Organizations like iAmerica provide services to Latinos, both citizens and those sin papeles.
iAmerica is a national campaign driven by diverse organizations, created to offer informational tools and interactive opportunities for immigrants and their families to become full participants in our nation’s democracy.
...
The iAmerica website is a centralized platform with accessible and credible essential services and information for immigrant families.
From applying for administrative relief to finding trusted legal resources in your neighborhood to assisting eligible citizens to register to vote, iAmerica.org houses the solution you need to inform, inspire and impact your future and America’s legacy.

Here's a link to their voter registration page.
Back in 2004, a major voter registration effort was launched by Rosario Dawson, and Maria Teresa Kumar.

In 2012 they ran ads like this one:




About Voto Latino:

United by the belief that Latino issues are American issues and American issues are Latino issues, Voto Latino is dedicated to bringing new and diverse voices to develop leaders by engaging youth, media, technology and celebrities to promote positive change.
The use of social media and the call for new ways to reach out to specific Latino communities has sparked innovative new approaches.






Book Cover: Latinos and the 2012 Election: The New Face of the American Voter, by Gabriel R. Sanchez For those of you who are interested in examining data and analyses of Latino voting and voting patterns, a good book to start with is Latinos and the 2012 Election: The New Face of the American Voter, edited by Gabriel R. Sanchez.
In giving President Obama a record level of support (75 percent) and reaching a watershed 10 percent of the voting population, Latinos proved to be decisive in the 2012 election outcome—an unprecedented mark of influence for this segment of the wider electorate. This shift also signaled a radical reenvisioning of mobilization strategies by both parties and created a sea change in the way political organizations conduct outreach and engagement efforts. In this groundbreaking volume, experts in Latino politics ask: What is the scope of Latino voter influence, where does this electorate have the greatest impact, and what issues matter to them most? They examine a key national discussion—immigration reform—as it relates to voter behavior, and also explore the influence of Latinos within key states, including California, Colorado, New Mexico, Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, Nevada, and Florida. While some of these states have traditionally had strong Latino voting blocs, in others Latinos are just emerging as major players electorally. The book also discusses the extent to which Latinos were mobilized during the 2012 campaign and analyzes election outcomes using new tools created by Latino Decisions. A blend of rigorous data analysis and organizational commentary, the book offers a variety of perspectives on the past, present, and future of the Latino electorate.
The Pew Research Center continues to provide important research on the Latino electorate:
Share of counties where whites are a minority has doubled since 1980

Diverse Origins: The Nation’s 14 Largest Hispanic-Origin Groups

Democratic edge in Hispanic voter registration grows in Florida

Other important voting research includes Cross-racial mobilization played an important role in explaining the Latino turnout for Barack Obama in the 2012 election. This was based on a paper in Political Research Quarterly called Revisiting Latino Voting: Cross-Racial Mobilization in the 2012 Election, by Loren Collingwood, Matt A. Barreto and Sergio I. Garcia-Rios:

One of the main storylines that came out of the 2012 presidential election was the role the Latino vote played in Obama’s victory. Among Latino voters, Barack Obama outpaced Mitt Romney by a margin of seventy-five to twenty-three—the highest rate of support for any Democratic candidate among Latinos. While turnout declined nationally from 2008 to 2012 by 2 percent, among Latinos there was a 28 percent increase in votes cast in 2012 (from 9.7 to 12.5 million) and Obama further increased his vote share among Latinos in 2012 compared to 2008. However, this was not a foregone conclusion, and many theories circulated since 2009 suggested the Latino vote might be underwhelming in 2012. Indeed, as late as September 2012, a common headline in the popular press was “Latinos’ enthusiasm gap worries Dems” and that the Latino “seemed to be fading” .
Post-election media accounts of the 2012 Latino vote have suggested that Obama performed so well among Latino voters precisely because of their unique demographic characteristics: Latino voters are younger than average voters (younger voters tend to vote Democratic), have lower income (historically, poorer voters side with Democrats), and, perhaps as a result, tend to identify as Democrats. Still, others have suggested that Obama did so well among Latinos because he supported the Dream Act and initiated an executive order—“deferred action”—for undocumented Latino youth.

Contrary to popular opinion, most of the terrorist activity in the U.S. in recent years has not come from Muslims, but from radical Christians, white supremacists, and far-right militia groups. Our friends at Alternet prepared an astonishing list of the 10 worst US terror attacks by Christian Fundamentalists which included:
  • Wisconsin Sikh Temple massacre, Aug 2012. white supremacist Wade Michael Page used a semiautomatic weapon to murder six people during an attack on a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.
  • The Dr. George Tiller Murder, May 2009. In 1986, his clinic was firebombed. In ’93, he was shot five times by female Christian Right terrorist Shelly Shannon (now serving time in a federal prison) but survived – but in May 2009 Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed by anti-abortion terrorist Scott Roeder on May 31, 2009. He was a victim of Christian Right terrorism, not al-Qaeda.
  • Knoxville Unitarian Universalist Church shooting, July 2008. On July 27, 2008, Christian Right sympathizer Jim David Adkisson walked into the Knoxville Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee during a children’s play and began shooting people at random. Two were killed, while seven others were injured but survived. Adkisson said he was motivated by a hatred of liberals, Democrats and gays.
  • The Centennial Olympic Park bombing, July 1996. Eric Rudolph is is best known for carrying out the Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta during the 1996 Summer Olympics—a blast that killed spectator Alice Hawthorne and wounded 111 others. His long list of terrorist attacks committed in the name of Christianity includes his bombing of an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama in 1998 caused the death of Robert Sanderson (a Birmingham police officer and part-time security guard) and caused nurse Emily Lyons to lose an eye.
