Obama’s Secret Birthday Bash

Obama’s Secret Birthday Bash by Stephen Lendman I haven’t had a birthday party since boyhood, except once at age 50 when my business colleagues surprised me with a lovely cake and bottle of expensive champagne after a company meeting, a memorable moment, much appreciated at the time.

Olympian Disgrace

Olympian Disgrace by Stephen Lendman Washington pressured the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and International Olympic Committee (IOC) to ban all Russian athletes from participating in Rio 2016 - solely for political reasons, nothing else, a reprehensible example of imperial arrogance.

Jill Stein’s Progressive Bill of Rights

Jill Stein’s Progressive Bill of Rights by Stephen Lendman The horror of dirty business as usual continuing whether Clinton or Trump succeeds Obama should arouse a groundswell of activism for progressive change.
