NPA News

 The New Progressive Alliance (NPA) s 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 support 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 here means showing a reference to an article. We publish in Facebook at the New Progressive Alliance, Leftist Third Party and Independent Candidates, Green Party Activists, Green Party Discussion, and Truth Bomb Activists. Because of problems with privacy and censorship on Facebook, we also publish on Twitter, MeWe, Ilkmade, and  JustNform. (On JustNform we publish on the NPA site and Truth Bomb Activists)

Connections to all of our allies may be found here. Our endorsed candidates for public office are listed here.

  • In April the New Progressive Alliance wrote an encouraging note to Julian Assange and published directions for others to do the same.
  • In April we offered a free DVD of the 1961 movie "Judgement at Nuremberg." The issues it raises are more relevant than ever.
  • The arresting of whistle blower Assange in April 2019 is a serious blow to worldwide journalism. The ACLU commented, "Any prosecution by the United States of Mr. Assange for Wikileaks’ publishing operations would be unprecedented and unconstitutional, and would open the door to criminal investigations of other news organizations…Moreover, prosecuting a foreign publisher for violating U.S. secrecy laws would set an especially dangerous precedent for U.S. journalists, who routinely violate foreign secrecy laws to deliver information vital to the public's interest." In April 2019 the New Progressive Alliance published an article about the arrest and documentation about the continued war against whistleblowers on ten social media sites.

  • In April we published our NPA article on the election reform with over 500 references which are continuously updated.

  • In April we published our NPA article on the environment with over 4,000 references which are continuously updated.
  • In April 2019 we published with a blog and social media “2020 Green Party Plans” about a Green Party presidential candidate that proposed a way forward.
  • Facebook deleted a talk by Greta Thunberg about global warming so in March 2019 we repeated her words on social media and made a blog. Science apparently has no effect on our leaders so we hope her words are more effective.
  • The trends in education are disturbing. In March we published continuously updated documentation in the article “Education.”

  • Internal blindness on a cult like level is not good. In March we published “Gallup Poll: US Global Approval Rating Plunges but Americans Believe the Opposite

  • This article explains a lot, but there are no easy answers. In March we published “Chris Hedges on the Failure of the Democrats and the Rise of the Trump Cult.”
  • In addition to nature, there are tipping points for the economy and political action. In March we published “A Future Without Fossil Fuels?” by Bill McKibben.
  • Democrats just do not get 8 years of Trump is very possible. In March we published’ “Nobody Likes Trump, But He Could Still Beat a Centrist Democrat in 2020 - Will just "veering" left be enough to inspire voters who have learned to ignore promises and platitudes?”

  • In March we published continued NPA documentation about the declining economy.
  • In March we published  “2020 Green Party Presidential Candidates.” 

  • “Majority rules – minority rights” is a good summation for the requirements of our democratic republic, but decreasing civil rights are a threat. We posted our NPA article on civil rights with ever expanding documentation in March.
  • In March 2019 we published “Could 'climate delayer' become the political epithet of our times?” which warns that delaying climate action could have as deadly consequences as climate denial.

Public Comment 200: March 2019 - US HOR 3 Poison Pill Riders   In March 2019 the New Progressive Alliance joined with 27 other organizations to urge the U.S. House of Representatives to oppose 3 Poison Pill Riders which would make it easier to hide secret political contributions.

Public Comment 198: February 2019 – Congress fund CDC    Despite increasing health problems such as the Flint water crisis and an outbreak of measles in Washington state, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) is being steadily decreased. The New Progressive Alliance with many other organizations asks that CDC be adequately funded with Public Comment 198.

Public Comment 197: February 2019 - US HOR - The New Progressive Alliance with 28 other organizations supported HR1 to free the SEC to do its job, oppose corporate overreach, and fight the negative effects of Citizens United vs. FEC.

Public Comment 196: February 2019 - Washington state Environmental Laws - The state of Washington is moving ahead in many environmental legislative actions which the New Progressive Alliance in February encouraged with Public Comment 196. Carbon Washington is a longtime ally of the New Progressive Alliance and is also pushing these laws.
