Bye-bye, Fake Liberals: The Warren Democrats Are Winning!The backlash against an inane op-ed bashing Elizabeth Warren shows that “economic populism” is the way forward.December 5, 2013  |   

 

I am very late to the Third Way-trashing party, but that’s a story in itself. I didn’t need to weigh in; progressives erupted in immediate backlash at the group’s latest attack on “economic populism.”

By now everyone knows that  the pro-Wall Street wing of the Democratic Party attacked Sen. Elizabeth Warren and New York’s Mayor-Elect Bill De Blasio in the Wall Street Journal Tuesday, arguing that their “economic populism” was a “dead end” outside of the midnight-blue communards of Massachusetts and New York City.

Not only was Third Way’s argument immediately and widely debunked – Salon’s Elias Isquith did it very well  here – but its domination by Wall Street became an issue in itself, thanks to folks at Daily Kos and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.   Warren herself responded by as...

Infographic: 20 Years of talks Keep Palestinians occupied — with settlers and checkpoints
Twenty years ago, the PLO Central Council approved the Oslo Accord with the Israeli government. Israeli-Palestinian talks were slated to conclude within 5 years, yet two decades on Israel’s occupation continues, and the situation on the ground has only moved backwards for Palestinians.

The infographic “20 Years of Talks,” produced in collaboration with AIDA (the Association of International Development Agencies) focuses on this deteriorating reality.

An ever-increasing Israeli settler population, continuing dispossession of Palestinians, and a comprehensive system of segregation define the landscape. In spite of the Palestinian Authority’s ‘statehood’ project, the feasibility of a ‘two-state solution’ is now widely questioned, while Palestinian self-determination and the return of refugees are barely discussed.

Juan Carlos Hernandez's insight:

Publiée le 6 déc. 2013

French President Francois Hollande says Paris will take immediate military action against the escalation of sectarian violence in the Central African Republic. Earlier a UN Security Council resolution authorized French troops to join an African peacekeeping force. Fresh clashes between local militias in the capital Bangui have killed over 100 people. Muslim rebels, who seized power in March, are fighting with Christians who support the ousted president. This has sparked fears that the conflict could expand into a full-blown sectarian war. Hundreds of French troops are already deployed in the republic and neighbouring states. Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of Pan-African News Wire, says that improving the security situation in the country is not France's main goal there.
