SCOTUS Wraps Up: 5 Takeaways From the Supreme Court's Current Term
Bill Blum: 1. John Roberts is no David Souter, much less Earl Warren.... 2. Justice Anthony Kennedy remains the court's swing vote, but he is at best a moderate.... 3. Has the court actually moved to the left, or have conservatives overreached? ... 4. In the current term's biggest cases on Obamacare and same-sex marriage, Justices Scalia, Thomas and Alito were the biggest losers.... 5. The court remains in play for the coming presidential elections... Visit Website ]

Ikea Deserves Only Tepid Praise
David Macaray: Starting January 1, Ikea's minimum wage will be raised to $11. 87 per hour. Let's consider that. While $11.87 is $4.62 higher than the federal minimum (which, to be honest, is part fantasy, part cruel joke), it's almost certainly not enough for a person to actually "live" on...

The Confederate Flag, the Washington Football Team, and the Owners Who Love Them
Dave Zirin: If the Confederate flag is too toxic to sell, then how can Amazon and Walmart continue to peddle the merchandise of a Washington football team that bears the name of a racial slur? How can they stock the blood-red profile of a Native American chieftain's head adorned with feathers and a brand—no matter what revisionists argue—that celebrates their violent death?...

Stagnation Is Not an Option
Martin LeFevre: In astrophysics, as in life, there are generally three views of where things are headed. Let's call them evolution, entropy or enervation. In other words, better, worse or the same... The majority of astronomers now believe (and it is little more than a belief) that the universe will continue to expand because of an unobserved force they call dark energy...

Why We Must Fight Economic Apartheid in America
Robert Reich Almost lost by the wave of responses to the Supreme Court's decisions last week upholding the Affordable Care Act and allowing gays and lesbians to marry was the significance of the Court's third decision – on housing discrimination... The decision is important in the fight against economic apartheid in America – racial segregation on a much larger geographic scale than ever before...

History Will Weep
Martin LeFevre: Human history has moved beyond the nation-state framework of Lincoln and FDR. The advancement, indeed survival of humanity can no longer occur within nations, and then be spread to other nations. A revolution in thinking is occurring beyond national boundaries, and sweeping through them, to the great dismay of those who serve the status quo...

Some Good News from Palestine
Stephen Lendman: Over the past year, investors reacted with their pocket books. The UN Conference on Trade and Development's (UNCTAD) World Investment Report indicated foreign investment in Israel plunged nearly 50% in 2014... Naked aggression on Gaza along with BDS effectiveness are key reasons why...

Detoxifying Consciousness
Martin LeFevre: On a warm, hazy afternoon, people cross the iron footbridge on bikes, foot or horseback. I sit about 75 meters upstream from the bridge. And though I'm in the open, few passersby see me either from the bridge, or the narrow park road across and above the stream... Doing nothing-simply intensely and undividedly observing everything that is happening outwardly and inwardly-is the highest action...

U.S. Pushes Russia Towards War
Margaret Kimberley: The lies that the U.S. corporate media tell can get us all killed. The United States is pushing Russia, which remains a nuclear superpower, to the brink and beyond – yet Americans are wholly ignorant of the facts and the issues at play... the American military are positioning weapons and holding training exercises in Ukraine, Poland, Romania and the Baltic states that border Russia...

Slicing and Dicing Greece to Pay Bankers
Stephen Lendman: Western societies are banker occupied territory. Financialization let monied interests scam ordinary people of incomes, savings, jobs, homes, overall welfare and futures... Profits alone matter. Paying bankers first is standard practice. Eurozone straightjacket membership mandates rules no just societies would tolerate...

The Pentagon Slush Fund
All the whining in Congress and the Pentagon about how the US defense posture is undermined by sequestration and compels a leaner military is just so much theatrics-not just because the US military is bloated both in money and weapons... but also because in Washington (including in the White House) the tricks are well known for giving the military everything it wants and then some. The fundamental problem isn't budgetary, it's US globalism... Visit Website ]

Top 5 Reasons Confederate Flag should stop Flying at SC Statehouse
Juan Cole: 5. The flag has been adopted as a symbol by many members of the white supremacist and KKK movements. Putting it in the statehouse just makes it look as though the state condones that sort of thing...

When a People Perish
Martin LeFevre: There are so many intertwined issues involved in the planned, vicious slaughter of nine examples of America's finest citizens: The still suppurating wound of racism; the rampant alienation in the United States today; the national gun fetish; and the soul deadness and undercurrent of evil that finds easy conductivity through so-called zombies...
