Say no more…

“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.”

ingersoll236 plus years of avoidable wars of aggression against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack was never a good idea. Legislators and presidents, in our name, have spent trillions killing millions for billionaires, munitions firms and war-profiteers.
 
There are consequences for this lawless corporate malfeasance…
 
 
“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.”
 
 
how-is

The American Century, proclaimed so triumphantly at the start of World War II, will be tattered and fading by 2025, its eighth decade, and could be history by 2030.

 
;America is bankrupt. The funny money we have been printing, with nothing to back it up, will become relatively worthless before 2030. This will trigger global depression. The United States will be retreating from more than 900 military bases in 150 nations while dying oceans rise to flood many shores.


 
 
“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. When Eskimos of the far north begin to experience leukemia from atomic radiation and Eskimo mothers’ milk contains crisis levels of PCBs, we must recognize that every organism on the planet is threatened..”

The demise of the United States as the global superpower could come far more quickly than anyone imagines. A realistic assessment of domestic and global trends suggests that in 2025, just 8 years from now, it could all be over except for the shouting.

The Political Circus

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.

Obama was an abject failure as president and Trump embraces Barack Obahow-isma’s military-industrial formula:  spending trillions to kill millions for billionaires.
This has not been working for the past 36 years …
 
Obama was to the right of George Bush on War, Torture and Civil Rights. Bush only claimed it was his “right” to render people for torture, rape and murder. Obama went further.
Barack claimed it was his right to murder anyone, anywhere, any time, for any reason or without providing any reason at all. He went on to murder innocent Americans who had committed no crimes without due process of law. Congress did not respond.
 
obamabushKing Obama took the throne of a Global American Murder, Inc. a corporate entity which has expanded to include 800 military bases in 134 countries.
(At a time when NOBODY attacked us.)
Sometimes America was invited to establish military bases, but other times the CIA and the Pentagon established these bases with bombings, drones killing innocents, invasions and forcible military occupation.

Exporting terror, munitions, war, profiteering and war crimes has not been working out so well for the past 36 years. We are bankrupt.

FACT: The U.S. government is bankrupt!

The government has an “official” debt of $15.8 trillion and mounting. But wait, there’s donald_trump_august_19_2015_croppedmore. This doesn’t include the liability from Social Security and Medicare. When you factor these in, the amount according to some, exceeds $120 trillion. With U.S. Federal tax revenue of just over $2.3 trillion, that puts our debt-to-income ratio somewhere around 5,082%. .

And bankruptcy is only the tip of the iceberg…

We continue spending trillions to kill millions for billionaires, sinking further and further into debt, and our current president, Don John Trump, is too busy building walls and enforcing racism to pay attention.”A sociologist credited with predicting the fall of the Soviet Union has warned that US global power is in a phase of accelerated decline under the leadership of Donald Trump — and will collapse while the property mogul is the White House.”http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/donald-trump-us-power-to-collapse-predicted-ussr-fall-johan-galtung-a7460516.html

…Pretending will not change facts.

And while we plunge into fiscal disaster, environmental disaster looms…

vietnam_formosa_enviromental_500x279Our war record (unprovoked aggression) does not inspire national pride. Our shameful export of terror, munitions and war has crippled the planet through neglect. And now we are facing  environmental disaster.

One in 10 people, globally, do not have clean water. The Earth is experiencing mass extinctions and species decline. Earth’s dying oceans are demonstrably rising to flood all shores.

This bankrupt shell of a nation is sinking fast. Now Trump wants to speed up our spiraling decline, with more wars, invasions and attacks for the corporate bottom line.

While calling for a declared war on ISIS mercenaries (armed and trained by the CIA), Trump wants to restart the nuclear arms race.

australiannationareview
“Trump stunned nuclear experts Thursday by proclaiming in a tweet that “the United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.”

And on Friday, Trump himself weighed in again, saying in a statement to “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC: “Let it be an arms race. We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all.”

endear
The orange clown in the White House, kind-of elected by a curious 19% of the nation, has taken the throne to pout and shout about racism, misogyny and hate.

Feels like a circus without a ringmaster, going the way of Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey. Now we have clowns running the show, the big top is gone and we may be folding up the tents sooner instead of later. And nobody is left but everyday American people us to clean up the mess created by our so-called leaders.

We are in a heap of trouble…

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

resistWe are in a heap of trouble and things will get much worse before they get better.

Forest loss is the tip of the iceberg… 663 million people – 1 in 10 – lack access to safe water and we have declining air quality, collapsing fish stocks and are suffering extinctions and species loss while oceans are dying and seas rise.

https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/2015/05/16/environment/


So, instead of addressing these issues we spend trillions killing millions for billionaires… in American wars on nations whose people have not attacked us.occupy
The United States of America is officially bankrupt and our pretend money will not support official fictions. We know dozens of unprovoked and expanding wars of aggression will result in the economic bottom falling out between 2025 and 2030. This will lead to a global economic depression unlike any in recorded human history.
In response to these collective threats, a bold and daring 18% of the American people elect a narcissist, neo-fascist, clueless, racist, ranting, orange misogynist.

The whole planet knows this hot-tempered, socio-pathic, orange, man-child and chump has no skills for leadership.

He’s like a teenager on steroids with his finger on the red button.

 
Sigh… A heap of trouble indeed.

Hillary will not be good for women, people of color, non-millionaires in America…  or anyone in 27 nations where she wants to continue Obama’s wars.

She will not be good for the innocents who die
when we send illegal drones to attack nations
who have not attacked us.

And she will not be good for those she may choose to murder without due process of law,
because Obama said it was OK and nobody has arrested him yet.

bernieisangryBoth Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have records. They, along with President Obama, endorsed, signed off on, funded and supported 27 wars of choice, drones killing innocents, 800 offensive military bases, increasing American aggression and presidential murders without due process. And Trump the Chump is down with this as well.
angrytrumpIf we continue these 27 (or more) simultaneous wars, refuse to implement an arms embargo on Israel and Saudi Arabia, and keep sending drones to kill innocents and create enemies…. this will bankrupt the nation between 2020 and 2030, which is about the time we will notice waters rising around nuclear power plants…
paolocurtazdotitOur oceans are dying and our climate is changing. Icecaps are melting, species are in decline and we have damaged the atmosphere of the planet and continue to pollute the water, air and land. And our best response has been to spend trillions killing millions for billionaires while our schools get worse every year, bridges fall down, costs of health care skyrocket, and our railways, ports, electrical grid, utilities, infrastructure, human services and civil rights are going down the tubes.
But there is some good news. There is a doctor in the house.
Dr. Jill Stein and the Green New Deal.
 stein123
Our New President: Dr. Jill Stein has this to say….
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.
 
jill7This 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.”
Perhaps it is time we paid attention.

Extinction,

… A report by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has found that populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish have declined on average by 52 per cent in the last 40 years. And for freshwater creatures the situation is even bleaker, with population collapse of more than three quarters over the same period.

 

Half of world’s animals have disappeared since 1970

… A report by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has found that populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish have declined on average by 52 per cent in the last 40 years.  And for freshwater creatures the situation is even bleaker, with population collapse of more than three quarters over the same period.

Almost the entire decline is down to human activity, through habitat loss, deforestation, climate change, over-fishing and hunting.  Anyone born in in 1970 or before would have lived in a world teeming with animals compared to life today.

The situation is worst in low-income countries, where wildlife populations have declined by 58 per cent on average between 1970 and 2010. Latin American has the biggest declines, with 83 per cent of animals lost in 40 years.

Examples of wildlife that are suffering serious population collapse include forest elephants in Africa, which are facing habitat loss and poaching for ivory and could become extinct within our lifetime, and marine turtles which have seen an 80 per cent drop in numbers.

African Elephants are under threat from poaching and habitat destruction (ALAMY)

In the UK farmland birds have been badly hit by habitat degradation, with major declines in species such as corn buntings and grey partridge. However there is better news for red kites and otters which have seen numbers increase with conservation efforts, experts said.

The Living Planet Report also warned that human activity is outstripping the resources the Earth can provide, cutting down forests too quickly, overfishing and putting out more carbon dioxide than the planet can absorb, leading to climate change.

It is estimated Earth would need to 1.5 times larger to soak up the damage caused by man.

An estimated 110 tigers are killed every year for trade (ALAMY)

Professor Ken Norris, director of science of the Zoological Society of London, which updates the species database, said: “The scale of biodiversity loss and damage to the very ecosystems that are essential to our existence is alarming.

“This damage is not inevitable, but a consequence of the way we choose to live. Although the report shows the situation is critical, there is still hope. Protecting nature needs focused conservation action, political will and support from businesses.

“We need to explain to the public that what they do is directly behind the trends we are seeing.

“There is an enormous disconnect between going to the supermarket and putting fuel in your car and the global statistics we’re talking about here.”

The report calls on consumers to change shopping habits and only buy sustainable products such as fish with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and timber with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certifications.

2.7 billion people live in river basins that experience severe water shortages at least one month a year (ALAMY)

The WWF also advises ditching the car in favour of public transport, increasing recycling and reducing consumption of meat and dairy products to cut down on the amount of land being deforested for farming.

And the charity is calling for measures including expanding protected areas, scaling up renewable energy production, and diverting investment from damaging activities, making consumption patterns more sustainable – all the more necessary as the human population grows.

11 Extinct Animals
We’ve Lost in Our Lifetime


Check out some of the
beautiful creatures
we’ve lost recently
in just the last 40 years.
 
http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/animals/g201/recently-extinct-animals-list-470209/


By Julie Gerstein
Oct 1, 2015

Some scientists say we’re in the middle of the sixth great extinction, and this one, unlike those that happened millions of years ago, is driven largely by the activities of humans. Just the last 40 years we’ve lost an incredible variety of species, like these amazing creatures.

1 Golden Toad (1989)
2 Zanzibar Leopard (1996)
3 Po’ouli (2004)  po’ouli bird
4 Madeiran Large White (2007)  butterfly
5 Tecopa Pupfish (1982)
6 Pyrenean Ibex (2000)
7 West African Black Rhinoceros (2006)
8 Javan Tiger (1979)
9 Spix’s Macaw (2004)
10 Round Island Burrowing Boa (1975)

11 Dutch Alcon Blue Butterfly (1979)

This Dutch butterfly — a subspecies of the Alcon Blue — was found mainly in the grasslands of The Netherlands. While closely related species (pictured here) still exist in parts of Europe and Asia, the last Dutch Alcon Blue was seen in the wild in 1979.

Cause of extinction: Increases in farming and building had a negative impact on the Alcon Blue’s habitat and caused it to lose its main food source.
