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.

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.”

We must vote our values

Corporate wars and profiteering have already bankrupted the nation. If we continue down this road, there will be a global recession while we are in full retreat.

Religion

“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 which may be too terrible to bear.” Timothy Flanagan

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.”

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.

Hillary’s crimes cannot be erased…

“In March 2011, Clinton supported the NATO attacks on Libya to aid rebels in their attempts to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi, which … led to Libya becoming the failed state that it is today.”

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.”

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. “

Bernie makes promises he cannot keep.

Bernie Sanders has a very public record, in the congressional record. He votes to support the expansion of empire through wars for profit. The truth matters.   Even when, for some … Continue reading

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!

Hillary Clinton and the Syrian Bloodbath

…Clinton has been much more than a bit player in the Syrian crisis. Her diplomat Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi was killed as he was running a CIA operation to ship Libyan heavy weapons to Syria. Clinton herself took the lead role in organizing the so-called “Friends of Syria” to back the CIA-led insurgency.

The U.S. policy was a massive, horrific failure.

Bernie’s “dream” is a Nightmare

We have expanded the American empire and Bernie intends for this expansion to continue.

But this nearly “imperial” expansion of empire contradicts Sanders’ most passionate populist rhetoric.

“Shut-up”, You don’t have the microphone!” is not a good enough response to questions about war, peace, life, death, murder, chaos, decline and surrender.”
