Coming up: Israel’s massacre of unarmed Palestinians has once against shocked the sensibilities of the world, unless, of course, you are a U.S. Democrat or Republican, in which case, whatever Israel does is fine; And, the Move 9 have been imprisoned for nearly 40 years, but the struggle to free them, continues.

Rev. Edward Pinkney, the activist from Benton Harbor, Michigan, was exonerated, this month, of election tampering charges that put him prison for two and a half years. Rev. Pinkney is back pursuing his old nemesis, the Whirlpool Corporation, which has dominated the poor, Black town for decades. Rev. Pinkney is set to disrupt Whirlpool’s pet project, the local PGA senior golf tournament.

Bernie Sanders to endorse Democrat Greg Edwards to represent the Lehigh Valley in Congress

Greg Edwards
U.S Sen. Bernie Sanders, who galvanized the progressive movement during his presidential primary contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, has endorsed Democrat Greg Edwards in his bid to represent the Lehigh Valley in Congress.

“From his work in the nonprofit sector to his practice of nonviolent direct action, Greg is a proven progressive leader who has had the courage to speak out and fight for those left behind,” said Sanders of Vermont. “...He brings with him the courage to fight for what’s right, the vision to build an America that works for all of us, and the experience to represent his district."

Sanders is the highest-ranking elected official to endorse in the race for an open seat that Democrats are trying to flip the Lehigh Valley-based district. Rep. Charlie Dent, a Republican who won the seat in 2004, is not seeking reelection and leaving office in May. Read more here:
