“Available economic, educational, and military data indicate that, when it comes to U.S. global power, negative trends will aggregate rapidly by 2020 and are likely to reach a critical mass no later than 2030.”
“…in really scary societies all public conversation is an exercise in using words to mean their opposites — in describing the brave as traitorous, the weak as frightening, and the good as bad — and confronting these lies is the most scary and lonely thing a person can do.”
“It does not take a mental health professional to see that a person of Trump’s impairments, in the office of the presidency, is a danger to us all.”
The 1980s were a time of very active American military intervention around the world.
The Amazon spat is a cover for the formal unveiling of a long-wished right-wing project to destroy the post office and have private industry take over its infrastructure, which taxpayers funded long ago.
We can rebuild sustainable infrastructure and restore human resources by choosing peace over war.

“Our generation is on the verge of the most profound catastrophe the human species has ever faced. Death threats to the living earth are coming from all sides. Water, sunlight, air and soil are all threatened.”
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
“… 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. And our leaders export aggression overseas with illegal drones known to kill an average of 50 innocents per strike.”
The truth is powerful.
All current American conflicts (including the West Bank and Gaza) … involve CIA destabilization, attacks, bombings, invasions and/or occupations for exploitation, extraction and extortion.
The United States sells munitions to both sides of conflicts we create and sustain.
It’s not pretty.
For 36 years we have attacked smaller and less powerful nations who have not attacked us. We have murdered millions and delivered death, destruction and disaster. But mainstream American media tells us wars-for-profit are here to stay
“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. “
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.”
