While stepping back from governing to politic, look pretty and tell lies… Obama allowed the CIA, the Pentagon, profiteers and criminals to attack dozens of nations who have not attacked us for destruction, extraction, exploitation and extortion. This shameful display of aggression, in our name, has made America a pariah state.
“…the whole world is sinking and we’re not goin’ down slow. It’s way past time to organize, resist, stand up and fight back.”
“A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past,” Fidel once memorably said. Though the man has died, the ideas for which he struggled and to which he dedicated his life will undoubtedly live on, not just in Cuba but anywhere imperialism and the exploitation of the weak by the strong is a fact of life.”
Stand up for Standing Rock Sioux
This assault on native American tribes is illegal, immoral and an abomination. This is not who we are. Resist!
If we continue expanding unprovoked wars of aggression, before 2030 we will be in full retreat while rising seas flood nuclear reactors and our coastal cities.
“Bernie Sanders said very clearly in the debates with Clinton (and in public statements) that he intends to continue Obama’s 25 wars of choice against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack us.”
Dr. Jill Stein has a plan for revolutionary change. She wants to put everyday people back in charge.
“…we are now fighting 27 simultaneous wars… and have been building an empire based on more than 800 offensive military outposts. We sell arms to both sides of artificial conflicts sponsored by the CIA and/or the Pentagon. This increasing and expanding empire, selling unending wars for profit, can only bankrupt the nation.”
“Despite his own claims, Sanders has not been an antiwar leader. Ever since he won election to the House, he has taken either equivocal positions on U.S. wars or outright supported them. ”
…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.
“We need to slow down, acknowledge Bernie’s war-and- profiteering kind of record and understand he is proposing more bodies and lives for the corporate elite bottom line.”
“Since the agreement will encourage off-shoring of investments and jobs and will do nothing to stop currency manipulation, the likelihood of a favorable result from the TPP corporate trade agreement is slim. The TPP should be rejected.” ~David Delk
“Americans are sick of war. Dr. Stein will be on 85-100% of the ballots. If we, the people Dr. Stein represents, vote for our own best interests… Stein may win in a landslide. 75% of the voting public are thinking third party, With offerings like Trump and Clinton, this is our time for The Green New Deal. ”
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”
― Søren Kierkegaard
“”our President claims the “right of kings,” to murder anyone, anywhere, anytime for any reason or without providing any reason at all. “
“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize why Hillary Clinton’s hawkish policies are not good for women’s rights. She has been one of the most warmongering US politicians of recent times and is proud about her record.”
“Obama has governed like a right winger at home and abroad. And we are paying the price.”
Since taking office Obama has bombed TEN Sovereign NATIONS, more than any of his predecessors since World War Two. These bombings violate International Treaties, U. S. Civil Law, The War Powers Act and Constitutional Mandates. We have deployed troops, attacked, bombed, or used illegal drones against these nations. We were not attacked.
– the other 80% of the population — are marginalized, diverted from political awareness and participation in self-governing, and reduced to apathy so they don’t vote or take charge
in the world we deserve, I would welcome Edward Snowden home a hero, and release Chelsea Manning, Jeffrey Sterling, Julian Assange and other courageous truth tellers with praise and reparations. Their actions are essential for preserving our imperiled democracy in the face of secretive, unaccountable corporate government.
