    EurAsia Review ^ | June 21, 2014 | Cindy Sheehan
    Right after Camp Casey the huge media circus/protest in front of George Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas in August of 2005, I was invited to the home of Producer/Director/Actor Rob Reiner to meet and have a chat. Also at that meeting was a major philanthropist (although I didn’t know it at the time) to all causes Clinton, wealthy Stephen Bing. I naďvely believed that I was there because Rob Reiner and Steve Bing were against war. HAH! I was there because Rob and Steve were above all things (even peace and justice) pro-Democrat. At this meeting, the suggestion was made...

    Cindy Sheehan, a member of the Peace and Freedom Party, visited San Diego State on Wednesday afternoon for a rally to gain support for her run for governor in this summer’s election. Sheehan first gained national prominence in 2005 when she camped out near former President Bush’s ranch in Texas, demanding a meeting with him after her son was killed in Iraq. In 2008, Sheehan challenged Nancy Pelosi for her seat in Congress. When Peace and Freedom Party candidate Rosanne Barr ran for president in 2012, Sheehan ran as her vice president. SDSU political science professor Ronnee Schreiber said...

    Liberal activist Cindy Sheehan, the activist mother of a slain Iraq solider who ran as the vice presidential candidate for the Peace and Freedom Party alongside Roseanne Barr, announced last week that she’s throwing her hat in the ring for a shot at being the next governor of California. Speaking at a Green Party rally in Wisconsin, Miss Sheehan proudly declared that she’s a Socialist, and she’s “not going to be ashamed to say it,” EAGnews.org first reported. “One of my biggest inspirations is President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela,” she added, receiving applause. “He convinced [citizens] that they could take...

I filled up three journals in the terrible months after his death. I often wrote at his grave and those journals did help me deal with the unspeakable loss. Today, I write from a great well of sadness, but not just for me, for the world. My dear friend in peace and...

By bombing Libya, President Obama has accomplished some things once thought absolutely impossible in America:(a) War-mongering liberals: Liberals are now chest-thumping about military “progress” in Libya. Even liberal television and radio commentators cite ingenious reasons why an optional, preemptive American intervention in an oil-producing Arab country, without prior congressional approval or majority public support — and at a time of soaring deficits — is well worth supporting, in a sort of “my president, right or wrong,” fashion. Apparently, liberal foreign policy is returning to the pre-Vietnam days of the hawkish “best...

    ALBANY — City Treasurer Kathy Sheehan has officially announced her candidacy in next year's mayoral race. Sheehan, 48, who was elected treasurer in 2009, had long dropped hints about a planned mayoral run. On Saturday afternoon, in front of Washington Park's Moses Statue, the Democrat made it official. "Let's face it: There is only one office in Albany that can deliver the changes many of us want," Sheehan said. "I am here to announce that I am running for mayor."

Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in action in Iraq while serving in the U.S. Army in 2004, appeared before a federal judge as the government sought a court order requiring her to answer an IRS collection summons seeking information about assets that could be used to satisfy her tax liability.

The mother of a fallen soldier [Cindy Sheehan] railed against military spending and said people deserve meaningful jobs that "pay not a minimum wage, but a human wage." They were joined by one open-carry advocate displaying an AR-15 semi-automatic...

    Within hours of the raid on Osama bin Laden's Pakistan compound, the CIA had used 21st technology to get "a virtually 100 percent DNA match" on the dead man. But something out of another century may come back to haunt the United States: the al-Qaida leader's burial at sea. Conspiracy theorists on the left and right were quick to insist bin Laden was either still alive or had been dead for years, pouncing on the government's decision to slide the body of the world's most wanted man off a board into the Arabian Sea. The burial at sea largely followed...

    The decision to drop terror chieftain Osama bin Laden’s corpse into the Arabian Sea was the final meticulous step in a raid whose details were calculated to exert deadly force but also to achieve maximum effect in the propaganda war: the White House was careful to say bin Laden’s body had been treated according to Islamic tradition, but also to deny his followers a shrine. But while the watery grave may help diminish bin Laden’s status as a martyr to his followers, it was already fueling conspiracy theories; as the administration resisted releasing even photographs of the slain terrorist leader...

In fact, as NATO forces are lobbing missiles to enforce a no-fly zone over the country with Africa's largest oil...

Yup, he is—according to Leftist filmmaker Oliver Stone. The filmmaker, along with the upcoming release of his “Wall Street” sequel, has a new documentary called “South of the Border” that praises Chavez, Castro, their allies, and highlights other South American leaders. But, apparently the Venezuelan people aren’t as hot on the near-dictator as Stone is: The documentary is bombing in the country. Personally,...

    PROTECT THE SANCTITY OF ARLINGTON CEMETERY, Saturday, March 20,2010 - Notice #2 Some changes since the November notice was first posted. First, we will still have a presence at Arlington Cemetery Memorial circle. More later in this thread. The moonbats have change their abnormal plans from years past. This year they appear to be eliminating their march to the Pentagon. They plan on staying in D.C. to protest Obama’s handling of foreign affairs, from Afghanistan to Iraq to Haiti. But they have not yet mentioned any times or particulars. Either way, we’ll be in the Circle. If you want read...

    While the passionate antiwar protests of the Vietnam era have come and gone along with the draft, there are still a few emboldened people who will do whatever necessary — including getting arrested countless times — to stop the seemingly pointless loss of innocent lives. Cindy Sheehan is among those on the front lines, waging the war against war. When Sheehan lost her son Casey to the war in Iraq in 2004, it became her life’s goal not to let the same fate befall others. Her goal: stop the violence by any means possible. Her dedication to her cause has...

    Cindy Sheehan said Facebook deleted an invitation to the CIA Drone Protest in Langley, Virginia, scheduled for Jan. 16, 2010. Sheehan said "the CIA is becoming overly involved in terrorizing populations." Sheehan joins a powerhouse of women activists to lead the CIA Drone Protest, including Cynthia McKinney, Ann Wright, Kathy Kelly and Debra Sweet. "We had an event with over 250 confirmed guests and it was deleted by Facebook," Sheehan said. "We are going to the source of one of the big problems in the US Empire -- the CIA -- to protest its extra-judicial killings of people in Pakistan....

    Looking back at the aughts, who can forget indelible images of a war and a president that should never have been, and the makeshift camp set up outside President George W. Bush's Texas ranch at Crawford Texas that challenged them both. For those feeling nostalgic about the past decade, fret not: It's apparently not going away. Energizer Bunny war protester Cindy Sheehan, who last year ran for Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco congressional seat, plans to set up a new anti-war camp near the Washington Monument to protest ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. "It's true," Sheehan said in an e-mail,...

    A little more than a year ago, Dave Clifton, president and co-owner of Rational Radio (1360 on Your AM Dial), told Sam that his left-leaning station would be a success, no doubt about it: "More than half of the people who vote are on my side of the political fence, and they have very little to support their views on the radio." But that was before what Clifton now calls "The Great Bank Heist" of 2008 and '09 -- before, as he puts it this morning, "radio stations lost a lot of their value because the advertisers quit advertising." Clifton,...

    I wondered where she was and if she would speak out against Obama. She's resurfacing. I have to give her props for consistency, though: Dear Mr. Obama, I hear that you were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize recently in Oslo, Norway and that, in addition to that spiffy medal, it comes with 1.4 million tax-free dollars that you are going to "donate to charity." I just want to let you know that there are still some of us in the US who oppose the wars, even though you are president, and its nothing personal, but I vehemently oppose your wars...
