“The renderings for torture, rape and murder continue… after Sanders, Chump and Clinton battled over who gets to accelerate the expansion of our ugly imperial demockracy.
And Obama, while telling us to trust him, claimed a new 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, Pence and Trump a voice. An ugly voice. But the truth remains. Republicans brag about supporting American aggression and Democrats lie about supporting American aggression. Trump, Hillary, Obama and Sanders share the same military- industrial profiteering ambitions. All of these tools lack insight, vision or moral scruples.
The part that gets to me is that the Obama administration broke all the rules, and in doing so revealed the ugly underbelly of American hypocrisy. And Trump, like Obama, seems to think this is OK. This ugliness, a fascism they have embraced, is devastating, dangerous and fatal.
Murder without due process is the new American justice.
When Obama and company took over, they refused to prosecute war criminals in the Bush administration, adopted their methods 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 engaged us in 25 new wars of unprovoked aggression. On their watch, the CIA and Pentagon bombed 10 nations who did not attack us. And our expanding wars continue under Trump.
America now carries out overt assassinations and murders, calling them “justice.” No trial, no charges, no rule of law, zero accountability and hundreds of thousands (or millions) of innocent victims. These so-called leaders do this in our name, on our dime, with our lives. And the blow-back is here. Chickens are roosting.
Obama and Trump both have mocked our constitution, federal law and treaties we have signed which are also federal law. Congress gives them a free pass.
But in November of 2016 we had secret weapon.
A brave, Harvard-educated woman who is a doctor with four degrees. She challenged the madness of our imperial ambitions. We could have shined with Stein, peace and progress. With Trump, our 27 or more simultaneous wars, during the next eight years, could spiral into nuclear war and have already led to bankruptcy which will become a global economic disaster. We will be in retreat from 900 plus bases, while sea levels rise to submerge all shores and several nuclear reactors.
Jill Stein told us, but the corporate press ignored the Green New Deal:
“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.”
If our New President had been Dr. Jill Stein, we could have established foreign policy based on diplomacy, international law and human rights. She would have shut down our wars of aggression and invested in peace, infrastructure, economic reform and a sustainable future for human beings and the planet Earth.
