Bill of Rights Day: What left of them?

The Daily Caller
by Nat Hentoff


John Jay, the co-writer of the Federalist Papers and the first chief justice of the United States (1789-95), wrote in a 1786 letter to Thomas Jefferson that he was worried that under our evolving founding document that became the Constitution, Congress would have exorbitant power. ... The separation of powers was indeed embodied in the Constitution, but especially in the Bush and Obama administrations, the executive branch has been so disproportionately and unilaterally strengthened that I urge the Cato Institute to actively redistribute, with a short epilogue, its 2008 book by Gene Healy, The Cult of the Presidency: America s Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power. It can make for more crucially discerning voters in 2012...

A proud, angry poor

The Nation
by Frances Fox Piven


Occupy Wall Street has thrust the issue of extreme inequality into the spotlight. The movement has spread so quickly and alarmed politicians not because of its rather small encampments but because its message resonates. Most people know, or at least half-know, that our problem is growing inequality, and they also know that government is complicit in the financially driven capitalism that is in the driver s seat. ... Still, the movement has to respond to the police sweeps of its encampments by becoming broader and more hard-hitting...

The making of the 99%

The Nation
by Barbara Ehrenreich & John Ehrenreich


They have been around for a long time in one form or another, but they began to emerge as a distinct and visible group, informally called the 'superrich,' only in recent years. Extravagant levels of consumption helped draw attention to them.... But as long as the middle class could still muster the credit for college tuition and occasional home improvements, it seemed churlish to complain. Then came the financial crash of 2007-08, followed by the Great Recession, and the 1 percent - to whom we had entrusted our pensions, our economy and our political system - stood revealed as a band of feckless, greedy narcissists, and possibly sociopaths...

The inevitable war with Iran
by Philip Giraldi


The overly ambitious and ethically challenged wannabes who pass as statesmen in today s United States fail to appreciate that the feckless promises made in their lust for high office could produce a catastrophic result. War is serious stuff, as the past 10 years have surely taught us, and Iran, which has had seven years to prepare for an attack, is a much larger and tougher nut than Iraq and Afghanistan combined...

The now notorious war crime, which left 24 Iraqis dead, became one of the defining atrocities of the war, and the taste remains all the more bitter for survivors, some of whom are children who lost parents in the attack, with the knowledge that not a single US marine has been brought to justice.
