As President Trump appears poised to announce a nominee to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, we speak with a former member of the secretive Catholic group People of Praise, known for its rigid gender roles and lifelong loyalty oaths, which apparent front-runner Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a member of.

For Justice Ginsburg, Abortion Was About Equality
Louise Melling | aclu.org | 2020-09-23
Justice Ginsburg is often quoted as having said, "Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you." She did exactly that when it came to reproductive rights and abortion in particular. Justice Ginsburg fought, she cast decisive votes, and she led in a way to bring others along by speaking the truth about why abortion matters: Abortion rights are about equality, restrictions on abortion about the forever story to treat women as second-class citizens. Her mark is in the jurisprudence, it's on our protest posters, and it's in our hearts., , Writing in dis…

Arming the Planet: the USA as the World's Leading Weapons Dealer
Melvin Goodman | counterpunch.org | 2020-09-23
For the past several decades, the United States has been the world's leading producer of major weapons systems and the leader in global arms sales. More of these sales have taken place in the globe's most volatile region, the Middle East, than in any other region of the world. The so-called peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrein, which were brokered by the United States, were business deals designed to expand U.S. arms sales in the Persian Gulf.

There is a union difference: mortality rates from COVID-19 are lower in unionized nursing homes
Martin Hart-Landsberg | mronline.org | 2020-09-23
We need strong unions, all of us. Tragically, even during the pandemic, businesses continue to aggressively resist worker attempts at unionization. And recent decisions by the NLRB only add to worker difficulties.

And Then What? — We Daren't Not Look Into the Abyss
Alastair Crooke | thealtworld.com | 2020-09-23
The election is configured as a 'crusade' against cosmic evil — a devil, or demiurge. The two sides seem to mirror each other in these passions. | Secular Millenarianism — the belief that some transformative catharsis in history has the power to expunge the crimes and follies of the past — has a long and bloody history. The notion originally owes to religion. Theories of human 'Progress' as an upward-trending, linear continuum, inevitably leading to 'a better human end', though clothed today as technological 'miracles', were never empirical hypotheses. They were always concocted myths, answering…

Three Cities Designated As 'Anarchist Jurisdictions' — What That Means
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2020-09-23
On Sept. 21, 2020, millions of people in three major U.S. cities awoke to find themselves living in what President Donald Trump and his Justice Department cronies had declared "anarchist jurisdictions." New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle — all of which are led by Democrats — were slapped with the label and, as a result, are now at risk of being defunded by the federal government, even as they grapple with massive budget shortfalls tied to the coronavirus pandemic. The president is playing a political game with those whom he considers to be his enemies, and that list is growing day by day.

Twenty Days Of Underground Protests
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2020-09-23
Ukraine – "This is not a strike, but a protest action." Yuriy Samoilov, chairperson of the Krivoy Rog (Kryvyi Rih) organization of the Independent Trade Union of Miners of Ukraine, prefers to clarify this point when talking about the underground protest of local miners. Workers of the privatized Krivoy Rog Iron Ore Plant (KZhRK) are afraid to officially call their actions a "strike" because of pressure from the Ukrainian authorities. | Protesters remember the sad experience of striking uranium miners when the leaders of the movement were put on trial.

US Bully In Last Chance Saloon
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2020-09-23
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced this week the reimposition of international sanctions against Iran. Trouble is nobody is listening to Washington's remonstrations any longer. Not only has the emperor no clothes, he's lost bullying power too. | The Trump administration asserts it has the legal right to invoke "snapback" UN sanctions on Iran over Washington's baseless allegations that Tehran is in breach of the 2015 international nuclear accord. This is in spite of the fact that the American side forfeited its legal rights when it unilaterally quit the nuclear deal in May 2018.

Dangerous Streamlining: Emergencies, Militarisation and Civil Liberties

'They'll come knocking at your door': NRA says a Biden victory would deprive Americans of 'your AR-15,' sends Twitter into frenzy

Many on Twitter are up in arms over gun control once again, thanks to an NRA post warning Americans that their semi-automatic rifles would be taken away should Joe Biden win the upcoming US presidential vote. | The National Rifle Association has apparently sought to remind Americans about the Democratic Party presidential candidate's stated plans to crack down on gun ownership. However, it appears instead to have reignited the interminable controversy over the future of gun control instead. | "If Joe Biden wins — Mike Bloomberg wins — and Beto O'Rourke will be knocking on your door for your AR-15," t…

Pentagon slammed for turning $1 billion 'coronavirus fund' into more military-industrial pork — but what did Congress expect?

Automated detection of OCSCC by deep-learning-powered algorithm is a rapid, non-invasive, low-cost, and convenient method, which yielded comparable performance to that of human specialists and has the potential to be used as a clinical tool for fast screening, earlier detection, and therapeutic efficacy assessment of the cancer.
