The Obama Legacy: The Rule of Law is suspended in America

“Obama says his new rule without law gives him the right to murder at will. We are in a heap of trouble. We need the ACLU right now. And it is critical that everyday people wake up and smell the coffee before we lose the rest of our civil rights. Human rights are civil rights.”

Suffer to sing the blues… ~OO~

“…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.”

Peace and Progress or Unending Wars

On most areas of economic policy, most progressives agree more than they disagree. But too many people with good hearts refuse to face facts about the last 8 years. This studious ignorance is not helpful. We cannot continue fighting 27 simultaneous, unprovoked and unwinnable wars. This has bankrupted the nation.

Supreme court rules American police bureaus are above the law.

“Some people are so afraid they cannot find the courage to debunk the junk and face facts. And increasing numbers don’t want to know truths too terrible to bear.”

Facts matter…

“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.”

The Dream is Over…

“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.”

Hillary, Donald, Barack & Bernie: All support Wars for corporate Profit

“During her interview… Dr. Stein quoted Alice Walker: “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”

A look at both recent history and current events demonstrates that people do have more power than they may generally believe. … people in the U.S. and around the world are recognizing their power, and using it to further the cause of human rights.”

Clinton and Trump are pro-war and the last thing we need

We make a difference. We cannot allow corporate cons to scare us. We must find the courage to resist. We are under attack and it’s time we stand up and fight back. No justice, no peace. No fear, no compromise and no surrender. http://www.jill2016.com/plan
We can “Shine with Stein”. and The Green New Deal:

Bernie Sanders is just like Hillary & Obama on Wars of Choice

“Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton… have endorsed, encouraged, enabled and funded unnecessary wars and avoidable profiteering for the corporate elite. Eight more years of war is what they promise: dozens of unnecessary wars, thousands of avoidable drones and more troubling presidential assassinations which make murder without trial the new American rule without law. Trump agrees with wars for profit. But we have better choices! We can shine with Stein!”

Power to the People: A Green New Deal

“Establish a foreign policy based on diplomacy, international law, and human rights. End the wars and drone attacks, cut military spending by at least 50% and close the 800+ foreign military bases that are turning our republic into a bankrupt empire. “

War is good for nothin’!

“The minute we stand up, we are unstoppable. It’s time to forget the lesser evil and fight for the greater good.”…

Jill Stein is on a Cross-Country Tour

Los Angeles: I sat down for an interview with Robert Scheer of Truthdig, who has interviewed every president for the past 40 years. Towards the end he told me – on the record – “I’ve spent quite a bit of time interviewing people who became president or who were president… And so, just in this short interview – there’s no question in my mind that you’re every bit the equal or superior to all of the presidential candidates that I’ve talked to.” Needless to say, I was honored to get a thumbs-up from Robert Scheer, who hasn’t previously been a fan of independent politics. Yet another sign of the rapidly changing political landscape!
