Mr. President: Stop Immoral #Drone Strikes - #drones


On Sept 14, 2001, Congress passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force, freeing the president to send drones into Pakistan or other countries.  Opponents of this despicable policy claim hundreds of civilians have been killed, despite denials by the administration.  In its protest of nominee John Brennan as head of the CIA, Code Pink brought a list of names of victims, many of them children.  We are Being Lied To Yet Again!

That's why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:

"Let's help Rep. Barbara Lee of Oakland, the only member of congress who voted against it, in her call to repeal the Authorization for Use of Military Force; demand that the president acknowledge the deaths of civilians; and stop drone attacks now."

Last chance to stop "frankenfish" GMO salmon

Dear Friend,

Late last year the FDA quietly took a major step toward approving
AquaBounty's "frankenfish" genetically modified salmon.

Its approval would be a radical move by the FDA - the first genetically
modified animal ever to enter our food supply. It's no wonder the FDA
posted its final review, clearing the way for approval, on the Friday
before the Christmas holiday, when few people would notice.

The FDA is now taking public comments on its study, which is expected to
lead to approval of the frankenfish. This is our last chance to keep GMO
salmon off our grocery store shelves, and stop the dangerous trend of
introducing GM animals into our food supply.

Tell the FDA: Don't approve GMO Salmon. Submit a public comment now.

I never tortured anyone

John Kiriakou: I never tortured anyone, ordered torture, or destroyed the videotapes of it, and I'm certainly not on a book tour glorifying it. http://bit.ly/Vu1Cki

CISPA is Back


Did you hear that CISPA is back? The misguided, anti-privacy bill -- defeated last year by a huge public outcry -- has been reintroduced in Congress.

The new version of the bill would allow private companies to share our personal data with the government, other companies, and private agencies like the MPAA. Click here to join me in standing up to this assault on internet privacy:


They don't need a warrant, and companies who share your information are given immunity from all pre-existing privacy laws!

No wonder companies like AT&T and Verizon have already signed on in support. Click here to tell congress NO to CISPA: http://act.demandprogress.org/letter/cispa_is_back/?referring_akid=2011.45919...

Supporters of CISPA -- like its sponsor Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger -- have said they can't see any reason why businesses needed to hide your personal data from the government.

They don't get it. Like last time, we need to take a stand against violations of our basic rights to privacy. Please join me in calling on Congress to oppose CISPA: http://act.demandprogress.org/letter/cispa_is_back/?referring_akid=2011.45919...

Tell President Obama: Don't appoint this #fracking guy

Dear Friend,

President Obama keeps saying we need to confront climate change.

So why is he considering appointing a major proponent of fracking to lead
the Department of Energy?

According to Reuters, President Obama is seriuosly considering appointing
Dr. Ernest Moniz - the director of MIT's Big Oil-sponsored Energy
Institute and a big believer in expanding toxic, climate-heating gas

At a time when the last thing we should be doing is undermining our
progress against climate change, Moniz is the wrong choice to head one of
the most important agencies in the fight for a sustainable energy future.

Sign the petition to President Obama now:
