      Mexico’s Obrador Trails by Only Four Points

      Left candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador – AMLO - is only four points behind the PRI’s presidential pacesetter Enrique Pena Nieto, according to Reforma, after a year in which the mainstream media and political analysts had written off the PRD presidential candidate. In Reforma’s poll, Nieto led with 29 percent to AMLO’s 26, ahead of the ruling PAN’s candidate, Josefina Vasquez Mota, with 20. The election is not until July 1, so the trends are fluid.

      America's Retro Policies in Latin America

      A fascinating theoretical question about the Obama administration's retro policies toward Central and Latin America is simply, "Why?"

      Endlessly blockading Cuba. Accepting the Honduran coup. Freezing Aristide in Haiti. Sending troops into Honduras. Expanding the secret drug wars. The list seems endless.

      Assange Future Still Remains Unclear

      After ruling 5-2 that Julian Assange can be deported to Sweden, Britain’s Supreme Court has granted a two-week reprieve for consideration of treaty issues not previously heard during the two-year case. With the new hearing unpredictable, Assange also has the further option of appealing his extradition order to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

      Medea Benjamin's Good War on Predator Drones

      After reading Medea Benjamin’s Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, I can only wish she will invest more time in writing and less time getting arrested, because there are so few activists with her gifts of research, analysis and communication. But she wouldn’t be Medea without being arrested and pepper-sprayed on one front or another, because she is a true witness in both the Quaker moral sense and as a seeing journalist in the thick of things.

      NBC Know-Nothings Trash Chris Hayes

      I have always sensed that Chris Hayes was more centrist than a typical Nation progressive, and marveled at his ascendancy within mainstream media’s punditry. Looks like Chris crossed the secret but official line, however, when he spoke up for the freedom to voice anti-war views on NBC’s Memorial Day broadcast.

      Requiem for Len Weinglass

      “It’s all there in Tolstoy,” Len told me as he lay dying last April. Stricken in the winter, lying now in a hospice in the Village, this would be his final spring. He was alert, watching the news of the Arab Spring, but was entering a deeper state where his friends could not go. When I asked if he was finding a spiritual meaning, he said he was reading War and Peace, adding, “It’s all there.” I didn’t get the page number in Tolstoy, and never saw him again. Now, more than a year later, I was able to open War and Peace to the pages I believe Len was reading. These excerpts are to be shared with you all.
