“And the renderings for torture, rape and murder continue… while Sanders, Chump and Clinton battle over who gets to accelerate the expansion of our ugly imperial demockracy. And Obama, while telling us to trust him, has claimed the right of kings to murder at will... and has killed innocent Americans in our name. Sometimes history screams.”

What is most amazing is that Republicans give goons like Cruz and Trump a voice. An ugly voice. But Republicans brag about arrogance and aggression, while Democrats lie about their own misadventures. Trump and Hillary share the same military ambitions and both lack insight, vision or moral scruples.
The part that gets to me is that the current administration has broken all the rules, and in doing so revealed the ugly underbelly of American hypocrisy. And Obama seems to think this is OK. The ugliness, a form of neo-fascism which they have embraced, is devastating, dangerous and fatal. Murder without due process is the new American justice.
Bush and Cheney had four wars, bombed four nations and carried out myriad covert operations while rendering people for torture rape and murder and establishing bases for torture in Cuba and in sites around the globe. But they were not able to make this official. U. S. Policy. We were in 60 countries, at war in 4 nations and had committed war crimes…
but at least we still had cover.
Then Obama and company took over, refused to prosecute these criminals, adopted their methods and agenda… and expanded aggression and attacks on civil rights, self-determination, peace, justice and freedom. Gitmo remains open. The expansion of empire continues. And we have become the terror. Spending trillions to kill millions for billionaires. …Scary stuff.
Obama and Biden are engaged in 27 wars of unprovoked aggression and on their watch, the CIA and Pentagon have bombed 7 nations who did not attack us.
America now carries out overt assassinations and murders and called them “justice.” No trial, no charges, no rule of law, zero accountability and hundreds of thousands (or millions) of innocent victims.
They do this in our name, on our dime, with our lives.
And the blow-back is here. Chickens are roosting.
This president has mocked our constitution, federal law and treaties we have signed which are also federal law. Congress gives him a free pass. And the renderings for torture, rape and murder continue… while Sanders, Chump and Clinton battle over who gets to accelerate the expansion of our ugly imperial demockracy. And Obama, while telling us to trust him, has claimed the right of kings to murder at will… and has killed innocent Americans in our name. Sometimes history screams.
But we have a secret weapon. A brave woman, a Harvard-educated doctor with four degrees… is challenging this madness. We can shine with Stein, peace and progress. With Trump or Clinton our 27 or more simultaneous wars, in the next eight years, could spiral into nuclear war and will lead to bankruptcy and global economic disaster. We will be in retreat from our 800 plus bases, while sea levels rise to submerge nuclear reactors.
“My Power to the People Plan creates deep system change, moving from the greed and exploitation of corporate capitalism to a human-centered economy that puts people, planet and peace over profit. It offers direct answers to the economic, social, and ecological crises brought on by both corporate political parties. And it empowers the American people to fix our broken political system and make real the promise of democracy.
This plan will end unemployment and poverty; avert climate catastrophe; build a sustainable, just economy; and recognize the dignity and human rights of everyone in our society and our world. The power to create this new world is not in our hopes, it’s not in our dreams – it’s in our hands.”
Our New President, Dr. Jill Stein, will establish foreign policy based on diplomacy, international law and human rights. She will shut down the wars and create sustainable peace and a future for human beings and the planet earth.
