July 31 T-SPLOST Referendum to Bail Out Atlanta's Racist BeltLine

By BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

The Atlanta BeltLine, is a massive & racist gentrification scheme funded by diverting billions out of Atlanta's Public School budget to banksters and crooked developers. But those billions aren't enough. To bail out the BeltLine, the governor and Atlanta's black mayor want to levy a one-cent sales tax on Atlanta for streetcars and light rail most of black Atlanta will never ride, for Jim Crow streetcars, when black Atlanta neighborhoods don't even get 24 hour bus or train service. Can the black misleadership class really pull this off?

One Time-Lapse Big Oil Doesn't Want You To See

Oil spills often bring to mind images of oil-drenched birds and blackened coastlines, but this incredible time-lapse video presents the human and financial cost of every oil spill since 1986. Politics aside, these stats are downright disturbing.

Notes on Spoiling

NOTES ON SPOILING

MAY 18, 2015 

For a decade and half, the spoiler factor has been a third rail of progressive politics.

Some of those who have raised the issue are genuinely concerned with the prospect of a third party candidate enabling a far right victory.

But others are Democratic Party hacks who, in Matt Taibbi’s phrase“would triangulate their own mothers” to maintain their lock on power. Spoiling for them is a bad faith exercise in maintaining electoral politics as a bipartisan gated community from which left, populist candidates are excluded.

Fortunately, there are signs that its effects are beginning to wear off.

One factor has to do with Obama’s valedictory lurches to the right,drilling in the ANWRattacking Elizabeth Warren for her opposition to the TPP as well as Seymour Hersh’s revelations of some of the most shamefully transparent lies in the history of the presidency. These have shown that there’s very little left to spoil.

And so Democratic loyalists have to make ever more extravagant and ridiculous gestures to apply the spoiler label to those challenging the party’s three decades long neoliberal drift.

A good indication is a recent posting on the blandly illiterate Forward Progressives website which urges us to focus on “Sanders’ entrance into the presidential race (which) is already making it more likely that Republicans could win the White House in 2016.”

Worth noting here is the slippage in the definition of the concept “spoiler”. A decade ago, it applied to a candidate endangering the front runner by competing in swing states. Very quickly it would apply to competing even in safe states.

Now we have reached the point that those daring to compete in the primaries are “spoilers”.  Soon it will apply to those guilty of suggesting a possible alternative candidate to whoever the DP leadership anoints and eventually to any criticism of the “dear leader” at all-those doing so reflexively denounced as “Naderites.”

****

All this would be comical if it didn’t serve the underlying purpose of obscuring precisely what the Dems don’t want us to see.

Astigmatism Afflicts our Nations Racial Vision

This article was originally published at: Green Papers: Diverse Views from a Green Perspective.  It was written by one of the Party's more brilliant legal thinkers, Asa Gordon, who I am proud to count as a political ally.  Since retiring from a career as an engineer at NASA, Asa and his family have lived in Washington DC where he remains active with the DC Statehood-Green Party, and has led the Party's efforts to enforce the mal-apportionment penalty provided by the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (see background here, here, here, here and elsewhere).  

 

With his usual clear thinking, Asa in the piece below poses for us the following:

But the most devastating example of a contemporary bias in the “human practice” of our courts, which is intuitive to blacks but oblivious to a consensus of whites, is our court’s devaluing of black political testimony embodied in the judicial tolerance for the “practical construction” of State Voter ID laws. Our court justices have valued testimony pleading for redress from potential electoral fraud to address the ungrounded fears of a white electorate admittedly unsupported by any data, while the court has devalued testimony grounded in incontestable facts that Voter ID laws have a real, not a potential, disparate impact on a non-white electorate. If our courts have exercised such clearly astigmatic racial judgment in adjudicating our most precious political right in a democracy, the exercise of the franchise, is there in any wonder that our courts racially astigmatized political judgment has metastasized throughout our judicial system.
