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.
Today’s explosive increase in human CO2 emissions and warming of the oceans are recreating the conditions of the great Permian extinction 300 million years ago
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.”
“At home, militarized police departments allow officers to kill unarmed citizens at will with zero accountability, two weeks paid vacations and get out of jail free cards. And our leaders export this aggression overseas with illegal drones known to kill an average of 50 innocents per strike.”
“The minute we stand up, we are unstoppable. It’s time to forget the lesser evil and fight for the greater good.”…
…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.
“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.”
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.
… Sometimes history screams.
“…(Sanders is) really just coming out of the closet now for the presidential race, in a Clinton-welcomed effort to help give the Democrats a much-needed fake-populist makeover for the 2016 elections. The great Socialist Party presidential candidate Eugene Debs (whose poster hangs in Sanders’ Senate office) would not be impressed.”
“For my campaign to succeed, it’s critically important that we get on the ballot across the country so we can give America a real choice in November.”
“Working Americans and organized labor face an unprecedented bipartisan attack by the Democrats and Republicans in this November’s elections. As long-time labor activists, we urge a vote for the Green Party national ticket including Dr. Jill Stein.”
“In both Paris and Moscow, it was amazing to see the international community welcoming our campaign as the voice of reason from the US on the most critical issues of the day – climate, security, peace, terrorism, refugees and more.”
Cox is right to point out the need for rent control. However, experience has shown that we can’t depend on our legislators by themselves for anything adequate towards affordable housing or minimum wage. It will take a movement to effectively counter corporate interests and opposition to any humane housing policy or decent minimum wage increase that takes away from their profits.
“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise why Hillary Clinton’s hawkish foreign policy might be a problem when it comes to women’s rights. Unless you believe that the lives of women elsewhere don’t matter, or that the president of the USA doesn’t affect them, if Clinton wins the next election her foreign policy will affect millions around the globe. Clinton 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.”
~That “Drones strikes—which are being conducted in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somlia—are illegal is cut and dry.
