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.

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.”

Fidel Castro: An International Hero

“A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past,” Fidel once memorably said. Though the man has died, the ideas for which he struggled and to which he dedicated his life will undoubtedly live on, not just in Cuba but anywhere imperialism and the exploitation of the weak by the strong is a fact of life.”

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.

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.”

The Rise and Fall of American Empire

American foreign policy under Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, when considered by the non-partisan observer, has a sense of continuity – and escalating and expanding aggressiveness.

This is a critical election year with nuclear war on the table…

“…we are now fighting 27 simultaneous wars… and have been building an empire based on more than 800 offensive military outposts. We sell arms to both sides of artificial conflicts sponsored by the CIA and/or the Pentagon. This increasing and expanding empire, selling unending wars for profit, will bankrupt the nation between 2020 and 2030.”

PeacePortal to St. Louis Riverfront Times

The action managed to shut down the rally for close to ten minutes — to Trump’s audible dismay. At one point, the chants of “USA” brought things to such a halt that Trump resorted to begging for police action.

“Where are the police? Get ’em out,” he says at one point. “Get ’em out.”
