Professor Pahnke: To Help Farmers, Rein in Agribusiness
THE PROGRESSIVE -- Anthony Pahnke is vice president of Family Farm Defenders and an assistant professor of International Relations at San Francisco State University. He wrote this opinion piece for The Progressive.

Professor Tsygankov: Media Hype of 'Collusion' Hurts U.S.-Russia Relations
WASHINGTON TIMES -- Andrei P. Tsygankov is a professor of International Relations and Political Science at San Francisco State University. He wrote this opinion piece for the Washington Times.

“By hyping the collusion story the media widen the pre-existing political divide in American society,” Tsygankov writes. “As a result, as the columnist Reihan Salam wrote, Democrats and Republicans became their worst enemies and now seem to hate each other more than they hate the Russians.

“In addition to undermining space for political dialogue at home, the collusion narrative, along with sanctions and pressures on Russia, weakens opportunities for a dialogue abroad.”

Professor Belkin: 'Court Packing Is Integral to Any Effort to Restore Democracy'
CNN -- “Court packing is integral to any effort to restore democracy,” asserts Aaron Belkin, a San Francisco State University Political Science professor who is executive director of Pack the Courts, a group advocating an expanded bench. Belkin, backed by a board that includes some prominent law professors, insists that liberal legislative proposals, such as to counteract climate change or expand Medicare, must be accompanied by a plan to ensure that such initiatives would be upheld in court.

Belkin said Pack the Courts has raised $500,000 to support its efforts to generate support among presidential candidates, including by working in the field in Iowa. Belkin said his group’s recommendation is the addition of four more justices, appointed by the president to life-tenured seats.
