The VP Debate
Author of the book Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism, Goldberg was recently in Alaska and wrote the pieces "Sarah Palin, 21st Century Theocrat" and "Palin's preacher problem: Antisemitic remarks are not uncommon in churches that Sarah Palin has attended in Alaska."
McGovern works with Tell the Word, the publishing arm of the ecumenical
Church of the Saviour in inner-city Washington. He worked as a CIA
analyst for 27 years and is now on the Steering Group of Veteran
Intelligence Professionals for Sanity. McGovern recently wrote the
piece "To Joe Biden: Time for Confession."
Director of the new film "In Debt We Trust" and author of the new book Plunder, Schechter calls Biden "the senator from MasterCard/MBNA" and Palin's nomination a "triumph of entertainment over news."
FRIENDS: Help Us Fight
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
