‘Defend the Guard’ Receives Outstanding Committee Hearing in New Hampshire

‘Defend the Guard’ Receives Outstanding Committee Hearing in New Hampshire

"I didn't know a lot about the Guard problem until I got involved in this, and the folks from Bring Our Troops Home sent me this very, extremely informative booklet on defending the Guard. And it's now called the Defend the Guard bill." That’s how State Rep. John Potucek, a ret. U.S. Air Force staff sergeant and Vietnam veteran, introduced H.B. 229 at a hearing in front of the New Hampshire House of Representatives. The Defend the Guard Act would keep our National Guard out of unconstitutional wars and restore accountability over war and peace to our government. We’re grateful for the...

Will the War Party Wield the Speaker’s Gavel?

Will the War Party Wield the Speaker’s Gavel?

We’re witnessing a fascinating thing: Congress is actually debating and voting on something. Remarkable! For the first time in a century—and only the second time since the Civil War—the vote for the next Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives has entered multiple ballots. To replace Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats have put forward Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York, a walk-the-line party man. Jeffries has supported curtailing the war on Yemen and has cautiously questioned the the American military occupation of Syria. But he’s a reliable yes-man for every Pentagon budget, and he’s committed...

Capitol Hill Retreat: Strategy After Yemen Resolution Failure

Capitol Hill Retreat: Strategy After Yemen Resolution Failure

What was widely expected to happen, did happen. Last Tuesday, under pressure from the Biden White House, Senator Bernie Sanders formally withdrew his War Powers resolution to end U.S. participation in the war on Yemen. American logistical support for the Saudi Arabian’s starvation campaign against the poorest country in the Middle East will continue, and the temporary cessation of large scale military engagement has lost its safety net. Should we have expected anything less from the man who buckled and endorsed both Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden for president? I believe in ending all U.S....

Your One Phone Call Could End the World’s Worst War

Your One Phone Call Could End the World’s Worst War

There’s action on Capitol Hill you ought to know about: a brief opportunity, and a long disappointment. Most importantly, there is a joint resolution set to hit the floor of Congress this week that would end U.S. involvement in the war on Yemen. If you don’t recall, this is a war Barack Obama started in 2015 to placate the Saudi Arabian despotism. Since then, we’ve been giving weapons, information, and labor to the Saudi war effort as they pummel the poorest country in the Middle East into a mass grave. Washington DC has even forced U.S. special operations to form tactical alliances with Al...

NATO Doesn’t Supersede the U.S. Constitution

NATO Doesn’t Supersede the U.S. Constitution

As our government continues to bumble and stumble at full speed towards World War III, the concept of tripwires and the legal authority of Article 5 become required understanding for the vigilant citizen. Last week the American people received the then-breaking news that a missile had landed in Poland and killed two people. Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said that this was a purposeful act of war by Russia, and that the West must respond with full kinetic retaliation. He was joined by his amen corner here in the United States, that group of politicians, regime journalists, and paid...

Remembering Daniel Webster This Election Day

Remembering Daniel Webster This Election Day

Tomorrow is Election Day. There’s going to be a lot of candidates and a lot parties on the ballot—Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, etc. Someday, when I enter the booth in my local polling station to pull that lever of democracy, I hope to see the words Peace Party next to a candidate’s name. That’s the label Daniel Webster campaigned under in 1814. His country was in a war he thought was senseless. His neighbors felt unheard in Washington DC, and his home was becoming impoverished under the heavy costs of war. So when he ran for re-election to the U.S. House, he wanted everyone...

Betrayal of the American Left

Betrayal of the American Left

I’m sure most of you remember the liberal protests against George Bush’s invasion of Iraq. They were big, they were loud, they were sometimes rude. And I can’t vouch for all of their hairstyle choices. But they were right. The invasion of Iraq was a criminal enterprise, an unconstitutional war built on lies that decimated a country, killed thousands of American soldiers and upwards of a million Iraqis. Our nation is still involved in endless wars, not just in Iraq but also Syria, Yemen, and possibly a nuclear showdown with Russia. Since Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine in February, our...

Joe Biden Is Not JFK

Joe Biden Is Not JFK

This past weekend, without fanfare, passed two anniversaries which remind us why Bring Our Troops Home is such a pivotal organization, and why we deserve your continued support. First, it was the 20 year anniversary of George W. Bush signing the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force. This was the resolution—still on the books—that Congress passed giving the president unlimited authority to wage perpetual war in Iraq. Twenty years later, and we still have 2,500 soldiers in Iraq. And there are neocons lobbying to use it as an excuse to go to war with Iran. (Try explaining how that makes...
