America Nodding and Nightmaring Towards War: Bedding Down and Mad-Maxing With Trump
January 9, 2020
It is an irony of history and a tragedy for the world that before we can finish making resolutions for a new and promising future, let alone begin building one, pathologies and problems of the past continue to pursue us, impose themselves on the present and threaten our very existence. And so, now we are confronted with the real possibility of a war in West Asia (the Middle East) which will no doubt, not only engulf the region, but also extend around the world. To speak of the pathologies and problems of the past is to speak of not only Trump’s thuggish act of war of assassinating Gen. Qassim Suleimani, commander of the Quds Force of the Iranian Army and perhaps the second highest ranking government member, but also of the continuing legacy and brutal practice of empire, imperialism, raw and unrepentant. ... read more »
The Danger Of The “Ethno-Nationalist” State
January 9, 2020
Ethnic regimes were largely ignored in the mainstream media of the global North until the early 1990s, even when troubling events, such as genocide in Burundi, were unfolding. It was only with the disintegration of the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s and the Rwanda genocide (1994) that it became more than apparent that another wave of ethnic cleansing and ethno-nationalist regimes were unfolding. ... read more »

Rep. Waters Statement on the Appeals Court Ruling that a Provision of Obamacare is Unconstitutional
January 3, 2020
“I am deeply disappointed by the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit to support the Republicans in their relentless campaign to repeal Obamacare and strip away its protections for people with pre-existing conditions.  This case is further evidence that Republicans will stop at nothing to strike down Obamacare and take away health coverage from millions of Americans. ... read more »

Rep. Waters on Roger Stone Guilty Verdict: Dirty Tricks and Lies Will Get You Nothing but Jail Time
November 15, 2019
“The strong fist of justice could not have befallen a more reprehensible, disgusting, and deserving human being than Roger Stone. Roger Stone has made a career off of lies, deception, and all manner of dirty tricks to win elections. He’s engaged in the kind of underhanded tricks that I witnessed and experienced firsthand. He is the living embodiment of everything we teach our children not to be. Roger Stone’s guilty verdict on seven federal charges – including obstructing official proceedings, making false statements to Congress, and witness tampering – are more proof that dirty tricks and lies will get you nothing but jail time in our democracy. ... read more »
