The Bottom Line…

“We’re in serious trouble: before 2030 it is all over but the shouting.”

“There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part; you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop,” Mario Savio said in 1964.

ingersoll2Unarmed citizens are being executed by sociopaths for jaywalking, wearing a hoodie, running or driving away, stealing cigars, selling cigarettes, not selling cigarettes, walking while black, refusing to provide ID, demonstrating against injustice, expressing grievances… or sometimes harmless unarmed citizens are just in the wrong place at the wrong time and a trigger-happy thug guns them down for looking suspicious or for no apparent reason at all.

endearAt home, American police bureaus, militarized and armed with machine-guns, have been provided a license to kill at will and our president claims a “right” to kill anyone, anywhere, any time, for any reason or without providing any reason at all. This amoral and extralegal extortion has been extended abroad in more than 27 corporate wars of choice. And what is most terrifying: the American people have surrendered to this betrayal and treason. With innocents executed at home and abroad, we are under attack and must stand up and fight back: no fear, no compromise and no surrender.

Albert King…

Albert King…

(April 25, 1923 — December 21, 1992)

…was an American blues guitarist and singer.

albert-king-c-1960s-everettAlbert King…

(April 25, 1923 — December 21, 1992)

…was an American blues guitarist and singer.

 

In 1966 he signed with the Stax record label. Produced by Al Jackson, Jr., King with Booker T. & the MGs recorded dozens of influential sides, such as “Crosscut Saw” and “As The Years Go Passing By“, and in 1967 Stax released the album, Born Under a Bad Sign.

 

lewie-steinberg-001-f5a9639b-5b71-4738-a02a-418753920ac6

The title track of that album (written by Booker T. Jones and William Bell) became King’s best known song and has been covered by many artists (from Cream to Homer Simpson).

King was a left-handed “upside-down/backwards” guitarist. He was left-handed, but usually played right-handed guitars flipped over upside-down so the low E string was on the bottom.

In later years he played a custom-made guitar that was basically left-handed, but had the strings reversed (as he was used to playing).

 

He also used very unorthodox tunings (i.e., tuning as low as C to allow him to make sweeping string bends). Some believe that he was using open E minor tuning (C-B-E-G-B-E) or open F tuning (C-F-C-F-A-D).

A “less is more” type blues player, he was known for his expressive “bending” of notes, a technique characteristic of blues guitarists.

Funny Business…

The United States Government has been run like a branch of organized crime: a special sort of American business… Funny business that ain’t so funny.

For more than than 36 long years, corporate and military elites have run the show: spending trillions killing millions for billionaires, while withholding health care from the American people…
and bankrupting the nation.

Endless war is unsustainable.

Time to shut down wars on people who have not attacked us and begin to secure the peace, rebuild the nation ;and heal the planet.

We can shut down wars of choice and reinvest those funds in infrastructure, alternative energy, education, health care, housing and peace. We have solutions.81-kpqrfqzl-_sl1500_

Truth is…

“All of us are more than fed up with mediocrity, hypocrisy, lesser-evil, trickle-down, less-than-perfect settling for spending trillions and killing millions for munitions firms and billionaires who pay no taxes and steal what we pay.

This is more than “less than perfect.” This shakedown is organized crime, committed in our names and on our dime because we let it happen and it comes from both sides of the corporate aisles.

Nothin’ but the truth

how-is

Truth and Lies;
Peace and War;
Fact, Myth, Magic,
Science and Fiction…

 

Over time we find small truths, big lies, radical science and brilliant ideas.  But so far war trumps peace, aggression spreads and myths abound. Too many live in personal fictions where facts are too great a burden to bear.

Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go
Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

Obama’s Legacy: Rule of Law is suspended

“Obama said his rule without law gave him the right to murder at will. Trump agrees. It is critical to wake up everyday people before we lose the rest of our civil rights.”

Permalink: https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/2017/01/05/there-is-no-rule-of-law-in-america/

cartoon-liberty-721768
Civil liberties are in decline in America. Currently habeas corpus is suspended.  We no longer have a right to know charges brought against us.  Our last president (Obama), decided he had an imperial right to murder anyone, anywhere, any time, for any reason or without providing any reason at all. And Barack Obama murdered innocent Americans who broke no laws. Obama did this without due process of law. No president is allowed to do this, but Obama effectively declared himself king. Now Don John Trump has assumed the throne. 
 obama_yes_we_can_murder
Currently, we are involved in unprovoked American aggression against 27 nations who have not attacked us.

We have extralegal operations going on in 134 nations and now have more than 800 military bases involved in expanding wars of aggression. These wars violate U. S. law, international law, the U. S. constitution, the War Powers Act and abrogate treaties which are federal law.

Here at home, police agencies murder unarmed people in the street and our judicial system murders prisoners who pose no threat. Some of these prisoners we murder have been found to be innocent.

81-kpqrfqzl-_sl1500_We allow police officers to kill innocent and unarmed citizens without accountability. The supreme court has declared U. S. Police officers are above the law. Right now North Dakota Police officers and militarized police from surrounding states are carrying on a war against unarmed Native Americans water-protectors. These criminals with badges are injuring men, women, children and elders in violation of U. S. laws and treaties. Obama and Trump both refused to stop these atrocities. The rule of law is over in America.

Obama declared this new rule without law gave him a right to murder at will.  Trump has now assumed this new presidential “right of kings.”  We are in a heap of trouble. We must wake up everyday people because civil rights and human rights are disappearing. 
occupy_poster_004
“The rule of law’s erosion was implemented by the Bush administration and realized by the Obama administration. Congress failed to stop it. Now, under the Trump administration, the Washington, D.C., establishment has done nothing to stop this crisis. Voters across America have excused transgressions on both sides of the corporate aisles. 8c87a-ciaduhThis cannot go on indefinitely without causing serious harm to our country.”

War is not the answer…

Election year nonsense can be very painful.

kingtrumpElection year nonsense can be very painful.
The Republican party bragged about wanting to spend trillions killing millions in avoidable wars for billionaires… and the Democratic party lied about wanting to spend trillions killing millions in avoidable wars for billionaires.



With Trump, Clinton or Obama… this was a losing proposition. 

81-kpqrfqzl-_sl1500_


We had two actual choices:

One choice was Trump or Clinton for wars on the road to ruin

 

The other choice was Dr. Jill Stein and The Green New Deal: securing the peace and investing in people, progress and the planet.

War was not the answer. 

angrytrump


But mainstream media represented the corporate elite and gave us entertainment instead of hard news.

So we got Trumped.
 

Now that the deed is done, we can’t pretend anymore.
We can secure the peace and rebuild the nation or let the bottom fall out.  


Time to organize.   Si se puede.

Stein and Baraka offered Green New Deal for peace, people and planet Earth ~OO~

We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire.

stein3Who is Jill Stein?

Jill Ellen Stein was born May 14, 1950.  She is an American physician, activist and was the Green Party’s nominee as our next President of the United States

What does she stand for? 

jill-stein-750Before the election last November, Dr. Jill Stein held the current record for most votes ever received by a woman candidate for President of the United States in the general election.

She is a mother, an organizer, a physician, and a pioneering environmental-health advocate. She helps lead initiatives to fight environmental racism and injustice, promote healthy communities, strengthen local green economies and revitalize democracy. She has helped us win victories in campaign finance reform, racially-just redistricting, green jobs and the cleanup of incinerators, coal plants, and toxic threats. She was a principal organizer for the Global Climate Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit.


How can Dr. Stein turn the ship of state from war to peace?   

stein-caucus-articleInlineJill received several awards for health and environmental protection including: Clean Water Action’s “Not in Anyone’s Backyard” Award, the Children’s Health Hero” Award, and the Toxic Action Center’s Citizen Award. Jill has appeared as an environmental health expert on the Today Show20/20Fox News, and other programs. She also served on the board of directors for Physicians for Social Responsibility.

She is the co-author of two widely-praised reports,  In Harm’s Way: Toxic Threats to Child Development, published in 2000, and Environmental Threats to Healthy Aging, published in 2009.  The first of these  has been translated into four languages and is used worldwide as a community tool in the fight for health and the environment. The reports connect the dots between human health, social justice, a healthy environment and green economies.

news3-1Jill was born in Chicago and raised in Highland Park, Illinois. She graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1973, and from Harvard Medical School in 1979. She received a Masters Degree from Harvard Medical School and completed 3 BA degrees, in Psychology, Sociology, and Anthropology at Harvard University.
She lives in Lexington with her husband, Richard Rohrer, also a physician. They have two grown sons in medical school and residency training.

Ajamu Baraka


Here’s the bottom line:

81-kpqrfqzl-_sl1500_

With Trump or Clinton we were  guaranteed 8 more years of 27 or more simultaneous and unprovoked wars of aggression against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack.

https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/2016/07/22/trump-or-clinton-will-sink-all-ships/

We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires, munitions firms and profiteers. Economists agree this military madness in pursuit of corporate empire will bankrupt the country and destroy the nation between 2020 and 2030.

We are teetering on the brink.

https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/2016/04/15/its-time-to-strike-back-at-the-empire/

Our unprovoked aggression has already bankrupted the nation.

Hillary and Donalds’ proposals to continue destroying America with avoidable wars for profit is tantamount to treason.

https://thewordsmithcollection.wordpress.com/2014/05/11/eight-wars-of-aggression/


In 2020, Our New President: Dr. Jill Stein can implement The Green New Deal, shut down the wars and rebuild the nation.

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.

This 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.”
