Jill Stein is on a Cross-Country Tour

Los Angeles: I sat down for an interview with Robert Scheer of Truthdig, who has interviewed every president for the past 40 years. Towards the end he told me – on the record – “I’ve spent quite a bit of time interviewing people who became president or who were president… And so, just in this short interview – there’s no question in my mind that you’re every bit the equal or superior to all of the presidential candidates that I’ve talked to.” Needless to say, I was honored to get a thumbs-up from Robert Scheer, who hasn’t previously been a fan of independent politics. Yet another sign of the rapidly changing political landscape!

Hillary Clinton and the Syrian Bloodbath

…Clinton has been much more than a bit player in the Syrian crisis. Her diplomat Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi was killed as he was running a CIA operation to ship Libyan heavy weapons to Syria. Clinton herself took the lead role in organizing the so-called “Friends of Syria” to back the CIA-led insurgency.

The U.S. policy was a massive, horrific failure.

Bernie’s “dream” is a Nightmare

We have expanded the American empire and Bernie intends for this expansion to continue.

But this nearly “imperial” expansion of empire contradicts Sanders’ most passionate populist rhetoric.

“Shut-up”, You don’t have the microphone!” is not a good enough response to questions about war, peace, life, death, murder, chaos, decline and surrender.”

Bernie won’t Budge on F-35 or War for Profit

“Had I done my research, I would have discovered Sanders’ frankly hawkish positions on foreign policy. It only takes a brief search to uncover his ardent support for Israeli apartheid, his repeated authorizations of funding for the U.S. military budget and even his initial vote for Bush’s original Authorization for Use of Military Force resolution that began the war on Afghanistan.”
