ACTIVISTS, ORGANIZERS, AND AMIN HUSAIN ON HOW WE HANDLE TRUMP


The only good thing Donald Trump has done is to galvanize millions of people into political outrage. For months we've gone to dozens of marches and rallies. Of course, this isn't enough, but what more to do? Then I happened on a Facebook post by Amin Husain: "I wish I could share what's wrong and what's missing in how we're handling the Trump era without many of my dear friends thinking that I am just being a downer on the 'resistance.'" I had to hear more...

VISITING HERMAN IN THE AGE OF TRUMP


     This past year was good for prison activists. Those who advocated for high-profile political prisoners in the federal system celebrated when President Obama commuted the sentences of Chelsea Manning and Oscar Lopez, both now scheduled for release on May 17. Activists who supported less-known "social" prisoners, most serving inordinate time for what the media like to call "nonviolent drug offences," rejoiced at Obama's unprecedented 1,715 commutations by the end of his presidency. ¶ But Obama also denied a record number of petitions (14,485, including Leonard Peltier's)...

FORWARD EVER, NORMAL NEVER: TAKING DOWN DONALD TRUMP


This dream. Something is in the house, something's breaking, the things I love are going away. I reach for Laura, she becomes translucent, evaporates. I wake up, telling myself this dream means I'm worried about how tired and worn Laura has grown from years of activist work trying to get people out of prison. I've always nagged her about doing too much, and now, with Donald Trump slouching towards Washington, that's inevitable. Doing too much will be a necessity.

Letters to Hillary...


Dear Hillary Rodham Clinton,

      I am voting for you to be our first woman president because Sisterhood is Powerful, and who doesn't love power? For a woman to be accepted as "one of the boys," she has to be twice as good at the things boys like. War, for instance. That's you, Sister!

First Woman President Nukes Iran


     WASHINGTON – President Hillary Clinton, making good on her 2008 threat to “totally obliterate” Iran, celebrated her first week in office by ordering a nuclear strike on Iran's capital city of Tehran. As a squadron of F-35s streaked through the sky toward the Mideast metropolis of over seven million, President Clinton outlined her foreign policy to a bevy of reporters at a White House press conference...

OUTING TORTURE QUEEN BIKOWSKY


Dear Alfreda Frances Bikowsky,

            So many people want to be famous. Not you. You were content to let Jessica Chastain portray a more competent version of your waterboarding and bin Laden-stalking self in the film Zero Dark Thirty. You never asked for credit. But now, thanks to the Senate Select Intelligence Committee’s Report on CIA Torture, we know you’ve made more history than the average, anonymous schlub. Jane Mayer of The New Yorker calls you “The Unidentified Queen of Torture.”
