In Wake of Supreme Court Disappointment, Immigrant Rights Advocates Vow to Turn Out the Vote 27.6.2016 Truthout.com
Protesters demonstrate over the Supreme Court's ruling on President Obama's immigration policy, at Foley Square in New York, June 24, 2016. The court's 4-4 tie left in place an appeals court ruling blocking Obama’s immigration plan, which would have shielded as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation and allowed them to legally work in the United States. (Sam Hodgson / The New York Times) After the Supreme Court deadlocked in a 4-4 vote, a lower court's decision will remain in place, blocking President Obama's November 2014 executive actions that would have shielded more than 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. But the immigrants' rights community hopes to effectively counteract the decision -- in part, by turning out to vote this November.

The Most Important Election of Your Life -- Is Not This Year 27.6.2016 Truthout.com
The voters vowed to take their revenge at the polls. They'd missed out on the country's vaunted prosperity. They were disgusted with the liberal direction of the previous administration. They were anti-abortion and pro-religion. They were suspicious of immigrants, haughty intellectuals, and intrusive international institutions. And they very much wanted to make their nation great again. They'd lost a lot of elections. But this time, they won. In Poland, that is. In two elections last year, the conservative Law and Justice Party (PiS) won the Polish presidency and then, by a more convincing margin, a parliamentary majority. And this wasn't just a victory for PiS. It was a victory for Poland B. Since its post-Communist transition, that country is often described as having cleaved into two parts, commonly known as "Poland A" and "Poland B ." Poland A links together an archipelago of cities and their younger, wealthier inhabitants. Poland B encompasses the poorer, older parts of the population, many ...

Who Should We Blame for Brexit -- and Where Do We Go From Here? 25.6.2016 Truthout.com
The United Kingdom faces an uncertain future after a referendum on leaving the European Union, in which a campaign dominated by xenophobic sentiments was triumphant. The UK's mainstream political parties, the media and the EU itself all share some responsibility for this outcome, which will embolden far-right nativist groups. A Vote Leave rally in London, June 15, 2016. Britons on Thursday voted on a referendum to decide whether to remain in the European Union, or leave it. (Adam Ferguson / The New York Times) An unexpected future in which the United Kingdom no longer remains a member of the European Union is suddenly, shockingly imminent. Moreover, it may no longer be the "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland" for much longer. The United Kingdom's referendum on whether to remain in the European Union was non-binding, but its consequences have already been immediate, global and drastic. British Prime Minister David Cameron has announced he will step down before October , but those of us ...

Washington Post Op-ed: When politicians light xenophobic fires, everybody gets burned 23.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
One of more vexing questions about Thursday’s Brexit vote is, “Why is it occurring?” If Prime Minister David Cameron is so convinced that Britain exiting the European Union would be such a tremendous existential mistake, why was he the one who called for the referendum three years ago? Even as recent polls may be slightly tilting toward favoring the Remainers, does this not stand as a huge political misstep, an own-goal kick in an already close game, an injection of unnecessary uncertainty into ...
