You probably heard the great news – after two years of progressive activism, FOX finally cancelled Glenn Beck’s show–but the Boycott Must Go On!!


Dear Kevin,
You probably heard the great news – after two years of progressive activism, FOX finally cancelled Glenn Beck’s show.
Beck was targeted after he slandered President Obama by saying, “This president has exposed himself as a guy, over and over and over again, who has a deep-seated hatred for white people, or the white culture, I don’t know what it is… This guy, I believe, is a racist.”
Activists at ColorOfChange, Media Matters, StopBeck, FoxNewsBoycott, and of course Democrats.com responded with a boycott of advertisers on Glenn Beck’s show. Ultimately over 300 advertisers pulled their ads from Beck, costing FOX over $40 million.
Advertiser boycotts work! And it’s time to boycott all FOX News advertisers:

http://www.democrats.com/boycott-proactiv

We’re starting our boycott of all FOX News with Proactiv, which sells acne medicine to teenagers and young adults. Why?
First, there are lots of other acne treatments. Second, young adults above all are hurt by FOX News, which promotes right-wing policies on race, education, healthcare, the environment, and war. Let’s get our future leaders to lead the fight against FOX News!
Sign the petition to Proactiv and enter the email address of every young adult over 18 you know:

http://www.democrats.com/boycott-proactiv

Beyond President Obama, FOX regularly slanders nearly everyone: Democrats, unionized workers, the unemployed (including veterans and 99ers), environmentalists, feminists, blacks, Hiics, Jews, Muslims, progressives, scientists, and any other group it disagrees with.
FOX News broadcasts rightwing extremist slander, incitement to violence, political propaganda, and outright lies to promote its rightwing political agenda. This is not “news,” but rather a never-ending “war on news” – and it’s all documented in our petition.
Why would any decent company want to fund it? Tell Proactiv to stop advertising on FOX News:

Thanks for all you do!

GLEN BECK ADMITTED in 2007, “I Am RACIST and Barack Obama is very White” THIS MAKES Boycotting FOX NEWS needed NOW

By Kevin Stoda

Dear, American supporters of the Fascist Oddball Xenophobic (FOX) news networks.

AMERICANS are getting less tolerant of your racism and stronghold on our major media.

For example, we have noted that in his 2007 TV program from FOX (See on You-Tube), Glen Beck admitted he himself was racist. Further, Beck then, in contrast to 2009, called Barrack Obama much more white than black. (Apparently, Beck now he has other nonsense to mush men’s minds.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0tgvWxC_6A

Using a major news platform to promote racism and to tell people to disrespect a whole presidential administration through mixed truths, outright lies, and xenophobia, is not to be tolerated any more.

On Democracy Now today, Amy Goodman asked Benjamin Jealous of the NAACP what he thought of Wal-Mart’s pull-out from advertising on the Glen Beck program on FOX.

NOTE: Goodman had simply asked , “The whole attack by Glenn Beck that drove this (resignation)? In your response from the NAACP to Van Jones, it says, ´The only thing more outrageous than Mr. Beck’s attack on Van Jones is the fact that there are sponsors that continue to pay him to provide this type of offensive commentary.` Do you support the continued boycott of companies like Wal-Mart of Beck’s show on Fox?”

http://www.democracynow.org/2009/9/8/white_house_environmental_adviser_van_jones

This is a particularly important point because Glen Beck´s HATE CAMPAIGN ON THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION led recently to a great American policy maker, Van Jones, quitting the government this week.

http://thinkprogress.org/2009/09/06/van-jones-resigns/

Mr. Jealous said, “We certainly support them (Walmart) choosing with their dollars who they’re going to support. I mean, it’s—Glenn Beck is somebody who’s told a seven-year-old girl, a seven-year-old black girl, that he would buy her a ticket back to Africa, that she needed to go back to Africa. And then he comes out, and he says that healthcare is the beginning of reparations. I mean, this guy plays the race card on a weekly basis. He does it very aggressive—you know, in a very hateful way.”

Recall, first, that Van Jones is one of the most important and thoughtful men in America—however, the FOX (Fascist Oddball Xenophobic) news network chose to support a man, like Glen Beck, rather than seeing that tens of millions of Americans need to get health care from promoters like Jones and that our America economy needs to move starting today to the kind of economy that its competitors worldwide are already doing.

http://www.alternet.org/environment/95963/what_will_the_green_economy_look_like/

Let’s quote the wisdom and influential words of Van Jones on the absolute necessity to green the American economy NOW!
“I think it’s really important to point out that we’re sort of at the end of an era of American capitalism, where we thought we could run the economy based on consumption rather than production, credit rather than creativity, borrowing rather than building, and also, most importantly, environmental destruction rather than environmental restoration.”
Jones continued, “We’re trying to make the case in this book that that era is over. We now have to move in a very different direction. And key to that will be basing the US economy not on credit cards, but based on clean energy and the clean energy revolution that would put literally millions of people to work, putting up solar panels all across the United States, weatherizing buildings so they don’t leak so much energy and put up so much carbon, building wind farms and wave farms, manufacturing wind turbines. We argue you could put Detroit back to work not making SUVs to destroy the world, but making wind turbines, 8,000 finely machine parts in each one, twenty tons of steel in each wind tower, making wind turbines to help save the world.”
Finally, Van Jones wisely noted, “So we think that you can fight pollution and poverty at the same time. We think that you can actually power our way through this recession by putting people to work, but we’re going to have to start building things here and re-powering, retrofitting, retooling America, and that that’s the way forward both for the economy, for the earth and for everyday people.”
Note: These statements came from a program on DN from October of last year:

http://www.democracynow.org/2008/10/28/van_jones_on_the_green_collar

Van Beck has written a book of the same title, The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems.

http://www.harpercollins.com/books/9780061650758/The_Green_Collar_Economy/index.aspx

America needs such voices as Van Jones in government leadership in America—not Fascist Oddball Xenophobic (FOX) types.

Clean up the American airwaves of all its fascism and racism, today.

http://www.pittsburghurbanmedia.com/a-petition-against-fox-conservative-host-glenn-beck.aspx

NOTE: One way to change the noise of Fascist Oddball Xenophobic (FOX) media moguls is to support alternative media organizations

http://aan.org/alternative/Aan/index

and alternative monitoring websites.

http://americas.mediamonitors.net/content/view/full/64380

Another way, is to demand that local radio and TV channels put better programming on, such as Democracy Now or news sources promoted by serious progressive journalists:

Mary’s Loyalty


 

Baby George – and Three Royal Realities About Every Child

New Blog from
Ron Hutchcraft

I guess you’d expect it. After all, his parents’ wedding was the most watched on the planet.

And now Prince William and Princess Kate have an adorable son. Baby George. The most watched baby on the planet.

Every time he’s out in public, the press is all over it. Most recently, as he traveled to New Zealand with his royal parents.

 

Join the Conversation

 

Growing up, my sons never lived anywhere but in the New York area. And, therefore, they developed some pretty intense loyalty to things New York. Take the baseball season for example. Yep, they’re still diehard Yankee fans. I mean, even when their Yankees weren’t giving them much to cheer about. My sons were so dedicated and they really still are to the Yankees, that after a particularly embarrassing loss my youngest son made it a point to wear his Yankee shirt to school.

I’m Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A Word With You today about “Wearing the Shirt After the Loss.”

Our word for today from the Word of God comes from John chapter 20; one of the most exciting chapters in all of scripture. Verse 1 says, “Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark…” Listen, that’s not only physically dark, it was just really dark among Jesus’ followers. “…while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.”

Later in this chapter it says, “Mary stood outside the tomb crying.” And then the story goes on. This is just so beautiful! “At this moment, she turned around and she saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus. ‘Woman,’ He said, ‘why are you crying? Who is it that you are looking for?’ Thinking He was the gardener, she said, ‘Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have put Him, and I will get Him.’ Jesus said to her, ‘Mary.’ She turned toward Him and cried out, ‘Rabboni!’ (which means Teacher).” Wow!

Now, Mary was at the moment of her ultimate loss. She had staked all her hopes and the rest of her life on this Jesus, only to see Him hanging on a cross; to see Him buried in a borrowed tomb. And you know what? It was a hard time for anybody to admit they belonged to Christ. It was a dangerous time for people to admit that. And here she was. She thought that she was on the winning team, and now this unexplainable, seemingly irreversible loss. It was a moment of total defeat it appeared. And most of Jesus’ followers? Where are they? They’re nowhere to be found.

Now, let’s talk about you. Maybe you’ve lost someone you really loved, somebody you cared about deeply. Or maybe you’ve gotten bad news from the doctor, or you’re out of work, you’re out of answers. Now is the time many people retreat. At least they become very silent about their relationship with the Lord, because they don’t understand. “God, what are you doing? Where are you?” Mary sure didn’t understand what was going on. But, see, now is the time to say like Mary did, “Jesus is still my Lord!”

The test of all you believe… Here you go. The test of all you believe is whether you are loyal when you’ve lost; loyal in a season of loss. You know, the first one that Jesus appears to, the first person to ever see Jesus resurrected and alive is Mary; the one who stuck with Him at the cross. The one who stuck with Him when He was buried. The one who went there after He was dead and it seemed like all hope was gone; who’s still at that tomb afterwards. The one who was loyal to Him; totally committed to Him even in the darkest hour.

What about you? If you stick with Jesus where there seems to be no reason to, you will meet Him in a way that most believers will never ever experience Him. You give your all to Jesus, and at that point you have won. And you experience Him in the dark time, for who did He show up to? Who did He introduce himself to? Who saw Him first? It was the one who had been loyal when there seemed to be no reason.

Is that You? See, if it is, then when the victory comes, you can celebrate as only the loyal can.

Every baby in this world is a special child. Because they’re royalty.



 
Every baby in this world is a special child. Because they’re royalty.
 
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc.
Baby George – and Three Royal Realities About Every Child Like Baby George - and Three Royal Realities About Every Child on Facebook share on Twitter Forward
I guess you’d expect it. After all, his parents’ wedding was the most watched on the planet.
And now Prince William and Princess Kate have an adorable son. Baby George. The most watched baby on the planet.
Every time he’s out in public, the press is all over it. Most recently, as he traveled to New Zealand with his royal parents.
The big news there? Baby George’s first “play day.” In a sea of toys. Where the eight-month-old managed to find and commandeer the biggest toy in the room.
Obviously, this is a special kid. Because he’s royalty.
He’s not alone.
Every baby in this world is a special child. Because they’re royalty.
Baby George is a royal child because his father is royalty.
But, then, every baby is from royal descent.
From the Great King. The Creator – and Ruler – of 100 billion galaxies.
I’ve had the very moving privilege of being there when most of my grandchildren were born. In that priceless moment when I held each newborn in my hands for the first time, I called them by name. And told them exactly what the Bible says about who they are.
“You are God’s workmanship.” Every baby is.
And they’re each an original. “Knit together in their mother’s womb…fearfully and wonderfully made,” as Scripture puts it. And I read there that God calls His children “My sons and daughters.”
Most “royal” children won’t be in the headlines. But each one is a treasure. A masterpiece.
I find that more than just some nice poetic thought. There are some pretty profound implications to seeing every child as incalculably valuable.
1. The circumstances of conception have nothing to do with the worth of the child.
Planned, unplanned. Wanted, unwanted. Single mom, married mom. Each life is divinely conceived. To be protected. Cherished.
2. No one on earth gave you your worth – and no one on earth can take it away.
If our worth comes from our Creator, then it’s intrinsic. A $50 bill – folded, crumpled, trampled – is still worth $50. No amount of mistreatment or rejection can diminish value that’s Creator-given.
3. The mission of a parent is to so raise their children that they know and feel how much they’re worth.
Join the ConversationConstant criticism, comparison or shaming makes a child feel like a paper plate. And paper plates get thrown away. But God only makes fine china. To be reserved for special purposes. As a dad, my great mission must be to be sure my children know they’re fine china.
So if every child’s a royal child, it’s pretty important how I treat them. How I value them.
The King is watching.

The Pentagon, Libya, and Tomorrow’s Blowback Today–Washington Fights Fire With Fire in Libya How Not to End Violence in a War-Torn Land


Nick Turse, The Pentagon, Libya, and Tomorrow’s Blowback Today

[Note for TomDispatch Readers: A small reminder that personalized, signed copies of Astra Taylor’s cutting-edge book, The People’s Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age, first offered to the TD crowd last Thursday, are still available for a limited period.  It’s a great way to get your hands on a truly smart book about the Internet world we’ve all plunged into and at the same time to support TomDispatch (which, unlike Google, Facebook, and the rest of the crew, always needs it)!  Check out the details at our donation page. Tom

Be careful what you wish for.  In 2011, a Libyan rebellion began against autocrat Muammar Gaddafi. It undoubtedly reflected the wish of many Libyans for a new world of their own without his heavy hand or that of his secret police and secret prisons.  Wishing to be rid of a ruler long seen as a nemesis, Washington, in tandem with its NATO allies, joined the fray at a moment when it looked like the rebels might otherwise be going down.  Without consulting Congress, and so of course without a declaration of war, President Obama brought in the planes, drones, and Tomahawk missiles.  Air power certainly helped turned the tide and then hasten the fall of the autocrat.  Only one problem: what came next. 

The aftermath proved to be a slowly devolving Libyan nightmare filled with militias of every sort, including jihadist ones.  The results have been grim, including of course the death of a U.S. ambassador. In the meantime, weaponry from Gaddafi’s looted arsenals, ranging from modern assault rifles to antitank weapons and even shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles, soon began spreading to Mali, elsewhere in North Africa, and later as far asEgypt and Syria, as well as into the hands of “extremists and criminals.”  The result has been a regional boost for exactly the jihadist forces the U.S. opposes most fervently, while for Libyans, it was the saddest story of all.  A recent poll indicates that, with a desperately weak central government and marauding militias, “more than one-third of Libyans report feeling unsafe going to the market, school, or work,” while 40% of women feel that way simply leaving their houses heading anywhere. In response, Libya has been transformed into a gun-toting society, with firearms in nearly 30% of Libyan homes (though, according to that same poll, most Libyans “would happily give up their arms in an environment of a well functioning military and police and with an improvement in general security”). 

Given the unsettling results of the 2011 intervention thus far, you might imagine that Washington and the Pentagon would think twice about what in the world to do next and perhaps adjust their approach.  As events of the twenty-first century have made all too clear, however, there is no genuine learning curve in Washington when it comes to such things. The only response is always, in some fashion, more of the similar, if not the same.  Today, Nick Turse explores a new Pentagon scheme to train up a force whose Libyan recruits will be drawn from already existing and often notorious militias as a supposed future bulwark for the weak central government. It’s one of those plans that may sound sensible in Pentagon briefings but has “cockamamie” written all over it. It practically comes with a bound-to-fail guarantee stamped on it and an assurance that it will increase the misery of Libyans. Writ small, it seems to go to the heart of the distinctly underreported U.S. pivot to Africa which, as Turse has so vividlyand repeatedly shown, is proving to be largely a machine fordestabilizing the continent, stoking extremism, and creating the conditions for blowback.  Of course, given the way Washington thinks, those results offer a guarantee of their own: a self-perpetuating employment program for the U.S. military into the distant future. Tom

Washington Fights Fire With Fire in Libya 
How Not to End Violence in a War-Torn Land 
By Nick Turse

Is the U.S. secretly training Libyan militiamen in the Canary Islands? And if not, are they planning to?

That’s what I asked a spokesman for U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM). “I am surprised by your mentioning the Canary Islands,” he responded by email. “I have not heard this before, and wonder where you heard this.”

As it happens, mention of this shadowy mission on the Spanish archipelago off the northwest coast of Africa was revealed in an official briefing prepared for AFRICOM chief General David Rodriguez in the fall of 2013. In the months since, the plan may have been permanently shelved in favor of a training mission carried out entirely in Bulgaria. The document nonetheless highlights the U.S. military’s penchant for simple solutions to complex problems — with a well-documented potential for blowback in Africa and beyond. It also raises serious questions about the recurring methods employed by the U.S. to stop the violence its actions helped spark in the first place.

Ever since the U.S. helped oust dictator Muammar Gaddafi, with air and missile strikes against regime targets and major logistical and surveillance support to coalition partners, Libya has been sliding into increasing chaos. Militias, some of them jihadist, have sprung up across the country, carving out fiefdoms while carrying out increasing numbers of assassinations and other types of attacks. The solution seized upon by the U.S. and its allies in response to the devolving situation there: introduce yet another armed group into a country already rife with them.

Tell your member of Congress: No corporate tax giveaways. Not today, and not any day. Just as soon as it gets back from its recess, Congress is going to take up the bill that contains these two loopholes, which are worth $80 billion every decade.


Americans for Tax FairnessKevin,

While you’re paying your fair share of taxes today, Congress is about to extend two huge tax loopholes that let big corporations and Wall Street banks shift billions of dollars of profits offshore.

Tell your member of Congress: No corporate tax giveaways. Not today, and not any day.

Just as soon as it gets back from its recess, Congress is going to take up the bill that contains these two loopholes, which are worth $80 billion every decade.

That’s great news if you’re General Electric — it got over $3 billion in tax refunds from 2008 to 2012, while making over $27 billion in profits. With these loopholes extended, it will get billions more.

It’s also great if you’re Wall Street. About a dozen large banks, including Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, have been lobbying for these loopholes to be renewed.

When they don’t pay their fair share of taxes, the rest of us have to make up the difference — or watch as services like education and health care get cut, and as our roads and bridges crumble.

But Congress hasn’t heard much yet from the folks they represent about these two loopholes — and if we make ourselves heard today, we can make a difference.

Tell Congress to end these two loopholes. Corporations should not get tax breaks to shift profits and jobs offshore.

These corporations have been lobbying hard, but we can win this if we show that we’re just as committed.

Thanks,

Domino’s pays many of its workers less than $9 an hour — but now it wants to give its CEO a pay raise to over $9 million!


Domino’s pizza wants to skyrocket pay to its CEO — and its shareholders are fighting back.

Some of the biggest mutual funds’ votes hang in the balance. They vote with the shares that people like you and I buy through them. 

If the mutual funds vote the way their customers demand, it’s game over. Tell them we’re watching.

Sign the Petition

Kevin,
 
Domino’s pays many of its workers less than $9 an hour — but now it wants to give its CEO a pay raise to over $9 million!
 
It’s so out of control that even shareholders are starting to kick up a storm.
 
But some of the biggest mutual funds that invest the money of regular folks like us — including Vanguard, Fidelity and iShares – are getting ready to support Domino’s in the vote, and kill any chance of holding the CEO to account.
 
Why? Because they’re used to going unnoticed. If we can show these mutual funds that we’re watching before the shareholder meeting, we can force them to vote in the interests of the regular folks that invest with them — not the CEOs who are their friends on Wall Street. 
 
 
Shareholders are voting right now, and when the votes are counted at the company’s annual meeting in three weeks, there’s a real chance they’ll vote to reject this oversized CEO pay package.
 
Just this week, one of the big, credible groups that advises shareholders how to vote came out with its recommendation: Stop the pay raise, and fire the board member responsible!
 
We’re in a rare moment. These groups, called “proxy advisory firms”, only recommend against raising CEO pay a few times a year. When these votes happen, we don’t need 50% to be successful: if even 30% of votes cast oppose the massive pay hike, it can cause major embarrassment for the company, or the replacement of the CEO. It’s happened before, and it can happen now.
 
We can win this fight. 96% of Domino’s shares are held by people like you and me — either directly or through their pension or mutual funds.
 

We can win this.

Thanks for all that you do,

Paul, Sahar and the rest of us

Kansas Shooting Suspect Has KKK Ties, Websites and History of Gun Charges


Since I have family from both where the shooting in Kansas took place and the region in Missouri where the shooter was living in, I did a search just now on the history of the KKK in Kansas  and Missouri.  Here are 2 of the main ones today.  However, I know that the histories of both states include anything from large Klan weddings to KKK activists in recent times.  Any suggestions on researching that history?–kas

The Southern Poverty Law Center identified the man arrested for murdering three people near Jewish community centers in Overland Park, Kan. yesterday as a white supremacist who has spent time in prison on weapons charges. From their press release:

Frazier Glenn Miller, 73, of Aurora, Mo., was arrested today for the murder of three people at two separate Jewish Community Centers in Overland Park, Kan. Miller, who was arrested using the alias Frazier Glenn Cross…is the former “grand dragon” of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which he founded and ran in the 1980s before being sued by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for operating an illegal paramilitary organization and using intimidation tactics against African Americans.

After subsequently forming another Klan group, the White Patriot Party, he was found in criminal contempt and sentenced to six months in prison for violating the court settlement. He went underground while his conviction was under appeal but was caught by the FBI with a weapons cache in Missouri. He served three years in federal prison after being indicted on weapons charges and for plotting robberies and the assassination of SPLC founder Morris Dees. As part of a plea bargain, Miller testified against other Klan leaders in a 1988 sedition trial.

Miller has a white-power-themed websiteand has been a frequent contributor to the anti-Semitic “Vanguard News Network.” In 2012 he spoke to a class studying religious extremism at Missouri State; BuzzFeed interviewed to the professor who taught the class yesterday night.

Online Activism Works Again


Moms Clean Air Force

Dear Kevin,

Today the DC circuit court denied and dismissed legal challenges to the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards.

All of you were key in fighting for these vital protections a few short years ago. They cut mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants; that pollution enters our air, then our water, our fish, and ourselves. Mercury, and all the other poisons coming from coal plants, are extremely dangerous to pregnant women, and have been proven to harm the developing brains of fetuses.

After 21 years of dirty politics, the standards passed. Even so, polluters turned around to sue for the right to keep polluting. This time they lost.

Moms Clean Air Force–all of you–made a big difference in getting those standards passed. You signed petitions, wrote letters, met with elected officials, and made phone calls. The new Mercury and Air Toxics Standards are now a beacon: our voices matter. We can accomplish impossible dreams.

Polluters don’t care about health–ours, or our children’s. But we do.

We’ll direct the same focus and passion to fighting the biggest problem of them all: The greenhouse gas pollution that is causing our climate to change. Powerful stuff. But then again, so are you.

All the best, with my gratitude to you for joining forces,

Dominique Browning
Co-Founder and Senior Director, Moms Clean Air Force

U.N. CLIMATE PANEL: WORLD HAS JUST 15 YEARS TO AVOID CLIMATE CATASTROPHE


The United Nations’ top environmental panel is warning the world has just 15 years to stave off devastating climate change. In a new report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says countries have taken so long to act that only immediate steps will prevent a climate catastrophe by century’s end. The IPCC says action by individual states has not been enough to tackle the problem, highlighting the need for a binding global treaty in the coming years. Emissions have increased at twice the rate in this century’s first decade than in the last decades of the 20th century. The report says the lowering costs of alternative energies have made transitioning on a mass scale practical and affordable.
