About Me

I joined DU following the election melt down that produced the second George the Lesser Term of Office. I am outraged by war, by out-sourcing of jobs, by Corporate control of both parties, and enheartened by my fellow citizens who are bravely part of "Occupy!"

Journal Archives

So, Sen Barbara Boxer: Which is more worrisome? Shots actually fired on a HQ's, or 100 vocal people?

And one must also ponder, why wouldn't activists for Bernie be vocal, when the rules of the Nevada Caucus were deliberately ignored?

I for one was extremely pleased to see that Sen Sanders firmly stood his ground and made the following statement:

"It is imperative that the Democratic leadership, both nationally and in the states, understand
that the political world is changing and that millions of Americans are outraged at
establishment politics and establishment economics. The people of this country want a
government which represents all of us, not just the 1 percent, super PACs and wealthy
campaign contributors.

"The Democratic Party has a choice. It can open its doors and welcome into the party
people who are prepared to fight for real economic and social change people who are
willing to take on Wall Street, corporate greed and a fossil fuel industry which is destroying
this planet. Or the party can choose to maintain its status quo structure, remain dependent
on big-money campaign contributions and be a party with limited participation and limited
energy.

"Within the last few days there have been a number of criticisms made against my campaign
organization. Party leaders in Nevada, for example, claim that the Sanders campaign has a
'penchant for violence.' That is nonsense. Our campaign has held giant rallies all across this
country, including in high-crime areas, and there have been zero reports of violence. Our
campaign of course believes in non-violent change and it goes without saying that I condemn
any and all forms of violence, including the personal harassment of individuals. But, when we
speak of violence, I should add here that months ago, during the Nevada campaign, shots
were fired into my campaign office in Nevada and apartment housing complex my campaign
staff lived in was broken into and ransacked.
"

But obviously, those supporting the Oligarchy feel differently. Here are quotes off the CNN
recent article:

"He should get things under control," Boxer said of Sanders, saying it was worse than the
vitriol during the Bush-Gore 2000 recount. "We're in a race that is very critical. We have to
be united. He knows that. I have in fact, called him a couple times, left a couple messages.
I'm hopeful he can get control of this."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said "I do" when asked if Sanders should drop out of the
race after voting concludes on June 7, giving Clinton a chance to "pivot" to the general
election ahead of the July convention. "I think it would be most regretful if there becomes a schism," Feinstein said. "That's what Donald Trump should want: a schism in our party. ... It's the responsibility particularly of Sen. Sanders to see that that doesn't happen."

On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said he had a "long conversation" with
Sanders to lay out what happened in Nevada.
"He said that he condemns that. I'm confident he does," Reid told reporters. "This is a test of
leadership."


However it is noteworthy that there is extreme irony in Sen Feinstein speaking of responsibility. Feinstein is the US Senator who had an aide re-write the entire US Senate Code of Ethics, which then allowed her such mis-uses of power that she not only secured lucrative governmental contracts involving reconstruction in Iraq for her husband Richard Blum's construction business, it seems very likely that she told Blum secrets she had gleaned while being on various top intelligence committees in the US Senate! Although the panels and members of such committees are often not allowed to divulge state secrets, that hardly mattered to Diane "The Lucrative" Feinstein.

It follows that a Senator that acted in the way Feisntein has acted would not at all mind Ms Clinton's private email server mess. So at least no one can accuse Feinstein of hypocrisy!

It should also be noted that while the uber believers and loyalists to Clinton are totally upset about the chair being overturned and the voices raised in Nevada, they don't at all seem to mind that Hillary's right hand campaign man, Brock, offered up the monies to get one of his subordinates to plant child pornography on Facebook pages run by Sanders Supporters. For those of you too enthused about Clinton to think straight, planting child porn on any site for any reason is a felony!

Remember - Our revolution will not be televised - but it will be social media-ed!

I am so grateful to Bernie's sttements in reply to the outrageous conduct and demands of the corrupt DNC.

So don't despair, remember we are working to elect a great man, who will return us to a Democracy. Sanders is a statesman, something we probably have not seen since the days of Wellstone.

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

We are going to mobilize. This will turn out okay for us. Hang in there.

Great things are happening. Astrologically, right now the sun in Taurus is friggin screwing with the Public (America's moon in Aquarius)

This means us worker bees are aware and energized and we are rising.

Mobilize by getting on the social media. Don't whine about what CNN is saying. Use Twitter, and use Facebook and start up Pinterest accounts where people can buy yr home made Sanders tee shirts.

The old paradigm is being blasted away. Those who are part of it, those who depend on it, have to make noise - they are being pushed aside.

So pay no attention to the lies and propaganda the guys behind the curtain are blaring at us. They are the last attempts of the truly corrupt as they slink to the ground to go back in their hole.

Never forget: The revolution will not be televised - but it will be tweeted!

Today was a rough day. But it doesn't change the future.

You have slime bucket Roberta Lange ignoring a legally put forth call for a vote on a motion. Instead of obeying the convention rules, she walks right out of the room!

And this hands the Nevada caucus over to Hillary - illegally, and with a total disregard that if we didn't have the FBI in the pockets of the Clinton Family, Ms Lange could be indicted for voter suppression. This felony charge is in the US Civil code and involves a fine of $ 10,000 and a year in prison or both! But usually an individual has to get someone in the FBI to go after the criminal who was the perp.

Back in 2004, I got exactly nowhere the day I tried to get the FBI after a voter suppressing County Employee, and it probably won't happen in Nevada in 2016. However, if someone who was witness to the event does call on the FBI, I suggest they not give up and keep asking "Could I talk to your Supervisor?" when refused by lower level FBI agents, until they talk to the top official at the FBI, if necessary.

But putting that all aside, the thing is, nothing has changed.

Hillary Clinton is still facing karmic retribution.

Karmic Retribution occurred once before in my Lifetime,.

Remember Mandela's ascension into office? "Logically speaking" Mandela should never have gotten that top spot in South Africa. But it happened.

And it is now the turn of all of us who really want a return to True Democracy to create the Ripples that become the Wave that become a Bernie Presidency.The Collective Manifestation of every man woman and child whose lives have been ripped asunder by the neo cons, all of us will be pining for having what is needed to happen on such levels of intensity that it will happen.

I am planning on making my way to Philadelphia, and to be part of the Million Person March on Philly. i was too young to go to the Democratic Convention in 1968, and these days I often feel too old to go outside and work in the garden. But come hell or high water, I will be there.

It should be noted that the Washington Post has only an interest

in making and keeping happy those Political Big Shots that Jeff Bezos will be going to for favors. (Bezos purchased Wash Po some time ago.)

Bezos had his lobbyists orchestrate the hand over of the US Postal service to Amazon, Spring of 2007. (Under a "Democratic Majority" Congress, BTW.)

Bezos thinks Hillary has a lock on the election - his reporters bring only puff pieces to their editors' desk for approval.

Don't expect much critical thinking aimed at HRC from this source.

Gotta keep that US Postal Service as part and parcel of Amazon's "free delivery" mail room. (And delivery is not really free - smaller businesses have been paying a heftier US Postal charge since Spring 2007, so Amazon can let its customers get a break.)

MAY I ask this: Do people here who remember Watergate

view the early days of Watergate discussion as a Left Wing Talking Point?

Or were early Watergate discussions a serious and concentrated attempt by people who care about the law to keep a President in line?

To demonstrate that even Richard Nixon was not above the law?

I ask that question, because in this New Era, of Corporate-Loving, Big-Industry-Bought and Paid for Politicians, we have one Hillary Clinton running for office.

There are questions galore for this candidate. Some of these questions are the subject of FBI investigatory activities.

One question includes the fact that the Clinton Foundation employed someone named Sid Blumenthal.

Mr Blumenthal apparently spent quite a bit of his time, and that of Secretary of State Clinton's time, discussing which smaller nations in the Middle East should be the subject of our wars.

Why is that? What is the attitude of the Clinton Foundation regarding how one of their employees, a man who was making ten thousand a month, and supposedly not biking medicine up dusty trails of third world nations to bring impoverished people medicine but rather than that, was perusing his paid time as an employee to pursue policies of war. Why was that?

Who is Mr Giustra, another Clinton Foundation supporter?

If the Clintons want to run a Foundation that offers up help to poor people of the world, I have no problem with that.

But why is there this element of sleeze going on? What does it mean?

Couldn't they set up a second foundation, such as for instance, the neo con-istic Hoover Institute, where the Clintons could run their other more nefarious activities? Isn't it possible that they have enough money to run more than one Foundation or Institute?

Rather than continuing their present policy of conjoining what are two separate and totally opposite activities under one umbrella?

"Goddamn it, Bernie Sanders, will you please concede already!"

Anyone else here notice how fervent the message is, that this will be a nation of Trump if Bern doesn't concede already.

The meme shows us how extremely desperate the Hill forces are, to have him out of the way before the "Republican " Trump can make it clear just what HRC has been up to all these years.

In our progressive attempts to defeat the RW neocons now running the Democratic Party

Now we Progressives get called Right Wing? How weird is that?

Nothing to see here, folks. The Clinton Foundation is all about Good Works,

Peace and Love and fairy dust.

And it really is only about "helping the Children."

Well, except for that bump in the payments to Bill for his speeches in front of corporate podiums.

And except for Algeria giving lots of dough to said foundation while Algerian officials were conducting talks with the HRC-led State Department.

And then there is that nasty little matter of how one woman, who likes Big Business-style profitable deals and also wants to President, helped Russians secure the sale of one fifth of this nation's uranium supply.

And reports keep coming in about all the armaments dealings that have probably come about due to how so many officials in nations where deadly armaments are a daily part of life have gone and ponied up monies to same Foundation.

2010 - 2012: The Clinton Foundation incorrectly lists no donations whatsoever from foreign governments in its yearly tax returns. These three years are the only full fiscal years during Clinton's term as secretary of state. In the immediately previous years, foreign governments donated tens of millions of dollars every year. In 2015, Reuters will report that in fact foreign governments did continue to give tens of millions each year during this time. After Reuters discovers the discrepancies, The Clinton Foundation will acknowledge the oversight and claims it will refile at least five years of tax returns to fix it. However, the Clinton campaign will also call allegations of corruption in The Clinton Foundation "absurd conspiracy theories." (Reuters, 4/23/2015)

The Young Turks (TYT) show that the DLC has lost their minds:

The Democratic Establishment will anoint Joe Biden should Hillary be indicted:
