White House Returns to Favorite Tactic: Hectoring the Base

By: Sunday September 25, 2011 12:00 pm

I liked it better when it was “Stop whining,” “Wake up,” “Get over it,” and “Get in gear.” Easy to see why they’ve brought this back — it worked so well for them in 2010.


Calling All Members….

I am so excited about the opportunities that the membership program is offering to us.  It’s providing a conduit to talk with each other directly, to get together in regular town hall webinars where we share ideas, discuss our concerns and learn together. And now it’s entering its next phase, where members join together in working groups that they manage, organize and drive.

If that sounds exciting to you, and you are not yet a member, please JOIN NOW.  We need your energy, your enthusiasm, your ideas and your passion.

Jane and Others Jailed Till Monday, Take Action, Support the Tar Sands Sit-In

By: Saturday August 20, 2011 4:00 pm

The President promised in 2008 that when he was elected the earth would begin to heal. Instead, he allowed 65 environmentalists to be arrested and held for two days on a charge that’s equivalent to a traffic ticket, in order to deter others from following our example.

I hope that people across the country will see through their ploy and be inspired by how many of us have backed up our beliefs with our bodies. People from all over the United States and Canada are on their way here right now to join us. Take a stand for what you believe in! Come join the Tar Sands Action!

Dan Choi, Bill McKibben and I are continuing our Powershift panel, “What Do You Do When the President is Just Not Into You.” (Felipe Matos, who took Bill’s place when we recreated the panel at Netroots Nation, scored quite the victory in the same vein with Roberto Lovato and everyone else at Presente this week.) Scarecrow is here with us in DC and we’re all going to take part in the first day of the 10 day tar sands sit-in. You can read Bill’s OpEd in the Washington Post today: Watershed Moment for Obama on Climate Change.
