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.

bankrupt
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.

“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.

Native Americans Under Assault

https://revolutionresource.org/2016/11/20/stand-up-for-standing-rock-sioux/

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!

sr5Cannon Ball, ND– Hundreds of water protectors were injured at the Standing Rock encampments when law enforcement blasted them with water cannons in freezing temperatures Sunday evening.   The attacks came as water protectors used a semi-truck to remove burnt military vehicles that police had chained to concrete barriers weeks ago, blocking traffic on Highway 1806.  Water protectors’ efforts to clear the road and improve access to the camp for emergency services were met with tear gas, an LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device), stinger grenades, rubber bullets, and indiscriminate use of a water cannon with an air temperature of 26 degrees Fahrenheit. Some flares shot by law enforcement started grass fires which were ignored by the water cannons and had to be extinguished by water protectors. Law enforcement also shot down three media drones and targeted journalists with less lethal rounds.

sr3National Lawyers Guild legal observers on the frontlines have confirmed that multiple people were unconscious and bleeding after being shot in the head with rubber bullets.  One elder went into cardiac arrest at the frontlines but medics administered CPR and were able to resuscitate him.  The camp’s medical staff and facilities are overwhelmed and the local community of Cannonball has opened their school gymnasium for emergency relief.

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.

… 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.

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.

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.
