The Nation
by John Nichols


Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich, a two-time presidential candidate who for the past decade has been the most consistent critic of war and militarism in the US House of Representatives, was defeated Tuesday in a Democratic primary that pitted him against fellow progressive Marcy Kaptur. Kucinich was the first electoral victim of the current round of redistricting, which saw congressional districts redrawn in states across the country after the 2010 Census.

David Swanson, War Is a Crime: ''If Congressman Dennis Kucinich becomes simply Dennis Kucinich sans the 'Congressman' his value to the peace movement need not diminish. I admit it s been nice having someone in Congress who would say and do what he would. There have been and remain other relatively strong voices for peace, but none as strong as Kucinich s. His resolutions have forced the debates. His bills have changed the conversation. His questioning of witnesses has afflicted the comfortable while seeking to comfort the afflicted. Perhaps Congressman Norman Solomon will pick up the baton. Time will tell."

Greek austerity measures could violate human rights, UN expert says

Greece on the breadline: HIV and malaria make a comeback

Following savage cuts to the national health service budget, including heavy job losses and a 40% reduction in funding for hospitals, Greek social services were ''under very severe strain, if not in a state of breakdown. What we are seeing are very clear indicators of a system that cannot cope.''

Now even the eurozone admits it has condemned Greece to never-ending austerity

There s a general view out there that with private creditors having agreed their 50pc haircut, the ''Greek problem'' has been solved, at least for now. Unfortunately, it has not.

US 'Offered Israel New Arms To Delay Iran Attack'

Time s Iran Nuke Assumptions

The most important issue to understand is that there is no evidence that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapon. Since this is the basis for the current ''crisis'' narrative, it's important for journalism to try to clearly differentiate what is known and what is speculation.

Economic Recovery for Whom?

Richard D. Wolff, Truthout: ''The truth about 'economic recovery' is that, for the mass of people, it is untrue. For the top 10 percent and especially the top 1 percent, those who brought global capitalism into crisis in 2007, recovery has been real.... 'Recovery' is the go-to word when business and government impose conditions to make the US more profitable especially for big business. 'Recovery,' in this capitalist economy, refers to profits, not to people.''

The Bipartisan Force Behind the For-Profit College Scam: Big Money

Zaid Jilani, Republic Report: ''As we head into an election year, we are going to increasingly hear that Democrats and Republicans fight like cats and dogs, that there is a civil war in Washington.

A Brief History of the Education Culture Wars: On Santorum s Legacy, the GOP and School Reform

Dana Goldstein, The Nation: ''A significant segment of the Republican electorate understands public education not as a crucial civic institution ... Instead, this coalition of religious conservatives and extreme tax-cutters prefers to vilify public schools and actually, pretty much any traditional educational institution, including liberal arts colleges as potential corruptors of the nation s youth; as unwanted interlocutors in that most sacred relationship: the one between a child and her parent.''

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: ''The power of the pen, a single op-ed, cost these brutes more than $2 billion in a single day. That, right there, is capitalism. Real capitalism. An institution which decrees that those who can t compete, and those who cheat, die. Hm. Sounds pretty good to me. 'Too Big To Fail' is someone else s catch-phrase. Nothing on the skin of this Earth is too big to fail.''
