    NO FOREIGN BASES: CHALLENGING THE FOOTPRINT OF US EMPIRE
    By Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers, Popular Resistance
    January 16, 2018
    | NEWSLETTER

    The United States cannot be a moral or ethical country until it faces up to the realities of US empire and the destruction it causes around the world. The US undermines governments (including democracies), kills millions of people, causes mass migrations of people fleeing their homes, communities and countries and produces vast environmental damage ...

    DT is ruining the image of the US power structure. I like the country where I happen to live to be the strongest. DT is messing things up for everybody in the world.

    US Military bases are stationed in different countries thru agreements. Some countries don’t have a military and enter into agreements with others. Bases are carefully selected to be close to areas of conflict.
    To be ready to go (to war) ASAP.
    I don’t see a change coming quickly, since it takes about 1-2 years to remove/or relocate a military base.

    There are some forums online discussing the US military and the options available to replace the current structure of the military.
    No one believes we should not have a military only how it should exist.

    Some say soldiers should live at their homes and report to duty when needed.
    All kinds of suggestions that make no sense.

    Personally, I wish no country needed a military.

    ... In one instance, Ginsburg said while she was a student at Cornell, a chemistry professor offered her a practice exam after she asked for help — only the professor provided a copy of the actual test he’d be giving. Ginsburg didn’t go into too many specifics, but noted that she “knew exactly what he wanted in return” for the help he gave her.

    American democracy is failing. The courts are finally starting to notice
    Democracy’s lost decade

    IAN MILLHISER

    There is something profoundly wrong with the United States of America’s system of government.

    For proof, briefly take stock of the last ten years in American democracy, in which a combination of factors — the filibuster, the way we draw legislative districts, Senate malapportionment, and the Electoral College — converged to rob American voters of a meaningful ability to choose their own leaders ...

    Olympic Committee gives USA Gymnastics board six days to resign — or else


    In the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal, the United States Olympic Committee has demanded that USA Gymnastics meet six conditions — including the resignation of its entire board by the end of next week — or else face decertification.

    In a letter sent Thursday to the USAG board, USOC CEO Scott Blackmun outlined the demands for institutional reform.

    “While the USOC encourages USAG to think and act broadly on reforming its culture, we also believe that reform must start with an entirely new board,” Blackmun wrote.
