1964 “The Communist world is no longer a single flock of sheep,” Newsweek reported in 1964. “Once a unified world force, Communism has now become a thing of infinite variety,” banding together to create a red spectrum of parties across Europe and Asia. As socialist movements sweep across borders today, the debate about what socialism means in relation to the United States’ free-market economy and democratic values is a major point of contention between the political parties, and it is becoming ever more likely that the country will craft its own version of Marx’s ideology. 1978 “The once-familiar face of death has become increasingly remote and frightful to most Americans,” said the magazine. As Americans grappled with their mortality through aids like medicine and therapy, more came to realize “there is no such…

in memoriam

A mourner attends a night vigil and prayer on April 7 as Rwanda began its 100-day commemoration of the 1994 genocide. Twenty-five years ago, 800,000 people were killed in about three months when Hutu extremists systematically attacked their neighbors in the Tutsi minority. An estimated 250,000 women were raped and the nation traumatized. Former President Bill Clinton has called not intervening one of his main foreign policy failings, and France recently ordered a two-year government study into its alleged role in the massacre. “In 1994, there was no hope, only darkness,” Rwandan President Paul Kagame said at a commemoration event. “Today, light radiates from this place. How did it happen? Rwanda became a family again.”…

so many conflicts, so little time

@CrisLeeMaza HERE THEY GO AGAIN. Attorney General William Barr is already under fire for his March letter to Congress, which reported the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in a way many feel was mostly beneficial to President Donald Trump. Now, Democrats are taking aim at Barr’s recent congressional testimony in which he slipped in his opinion that federal law enforcement officials may have “spied” on his boss’ successful presidential run. But if that wasn’t enough, some experts argue that Barr’s previous work in the private sector could conflict with his continuing supervision of the investigation into Russian tampering in the 2016 election campaign. Why? A few of Barr’s previous employers are connected to key subjects in the probe. And some argue that, even if Barr didn’t break any rules, his financial ties to…

blowing the whistle on the white house

@SpyTalker WHEN DONALD TRUMP AND HIS advisers arrived at the White House for their first real day of work on January 21, 2017, they inherited over 1,800 civil service employees who have more-or-less permanent jobs in the sprawling executive office of the presidency. One of them was Tricia Newbold, who over the past 16 years had risen from an entry-level job answering phones to a manager of security clearances. Under Trump’s three predecessors, things had gone smoothly. No senior official in memory had been denied a clearance or removed because of a security problem. Then she met her new boss, Carl Kline, a veteran Air Force security expert recruited to the White House by a Trump aide. Newbold, who had long ignored partisan concerns or personal relationships in her adjudication of security clearances,…

a green new deal

I’M OFTEN ASKED WHY I LINK the legalization of adult-use cannabis with social and economic justice for communities of color. My answer is simple: Black and Latinx people, who make up those communities, have suffered the most under cannabis prohibition and the racially disparate enforcement of the “war on drugs.” To understand how this has occurred, a historical context is necessary. John Ehrlichman, who was counsel and assistant to the president for domestic affairs for President Nixon, told Dan Baum of Harper’s in 1994, “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the anti-war left and black people.… We couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and the blacks…
