NPA News

 

The New Progressive Alliance is a 100-percent volunteer, educational organization comprised of ACTIVE ACTIVISTS dedicated to improving the lives of working men and women and their families by positively influencing public policy. We work to awaken Americans to the reality that only through supporting candidates who support our concerns will those concerns be met. Toward that end, we vet and endorse candidates for office who publicly endorse the Unified Platform; participate in official public comment opportunities to regulatory agencies; and sponsor and partake in a host of events designed to raise public consciousness of the extent to which corporations maintain near-total control of the political and policy-making process in this country.

I.  News: (Publishing in social media means at a minimum publishing in Facebook at both New Progressive Alliance and Leftist Third Party and Independent Candidates.)

  • In June 2017 Gary Swing and Julia Williams commented in our blog on the Green Party.
  • In June 2017we published an article about war at home and abroad as well as an insightful article by Naomi Klein.
  • It is good to look at the trend we are on. In June 2017 we published "Making of a Pariah Nation."
  • In June 2017 we published an interesting article. The Naval War College taught about nations clashing between democracies and dictatorships. Later Samuel Huntington in “Clash of Civilizations” proposed the conflict would be between Islam and the Judeo-Christians. This interesting article we published proposes that President Trump is trying to win fossil fuel supremacy over post-carbon green energy.

  • In June 2017 we published an article about  eerie similarities between the collapse of the Soviet Union and where we are now.
  • In June 2017 we published an article "Climate facts are not enough." Citing science is not enough. Nonetheless, those who deliberately choose to ignore science and substitute their own childish beliefs are very close to evil and will have a disastrous effect on the next generation. We also made Public Comment 124 on the U.S. withdrawal from United Nations COP 21.
  • In May 2017 we published about  a message of hope in a previous commencement address by Howard Zinn.
  • In May 2017 the New Progressive Alliance is proud to welcome ACT NOW as an ally. The ACT NOW coalition supports a price on carbon in Washington state. Taxing polluters could promote renewable energy, help keep our air and water clean, provide tax relief, and fund healthy forests and vital state services. Details are in Public Comment 121.
  • In May 2017 we issued an open call for NGOs to help the United Nations.

  • In April 2017 we published about the last Nuremberg Prosecutor alive.
  • In April 2017 we published an article warning us that we should not let distractions keep us from seeing the truth that more war is the policy of both Democrats and Republicans.

  • In April 2017 we published in social media “Syria - the latest example of continuous war”  by Jeff Roby. 
  • As of April 2017 the New Progressive Alliance no longer posts on Ello because they are not appropriate for political commentary and unlikely to change. We will be continuously on the lookout for a Facebook replacement.
