allies.

Sanders condemns pro-austerity “colonial takeover” of Puerto Rico; Clinton supports it.

Bernie calls U.S. debt crisis plan "morally unacceptable" and a gift for "vulture capitalists."

Hillary backs it.

WIKILEAKS BOMBSHELL: Hillary’s email revelation France and US killed Qaddafi for his gold and oil -

Hillary’s email revelation: France and US killed Qaddafi for his gold and oil

by Bob Fitrakis

With the recent release of Hillary Clinton’s emails by Wikileaks, the public now knows exactly how the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) went from a collective defense organization to the new Barbary Coast Pirates of imperialism.

During the 2011 Libyan uprising, the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 1973 which called for a ceasefire and authorized military action to protect civilian lives. A coalition formed, centered around NATO with the March 17, 2011 passing of the Resolution. Its purpose -- a so-called "no-fly zone" over Libya.

The irony that the U.S.-dominated NATO military organization would be concerned with "protecting" Arab civilians is all too obvious since the United States is the nation most responsible for killing Arab civilians.

The real reasons for the attack have been dealt with most directly by America's famous reformed "economic hitman," John Perkins.

Perkins points out that the attack on Libya, like the attack on Iraq, has to do with power and control of resources, not only oil, but gold. Libya has the highest standard of living in Africa. "According to the IMF, Libya's Central Bank is 100% state owned. The IMF estimates that the bank has nearly 144 tons of gold in its vaults," Perkins wrote.

NATO went there like modern Barbary Coast Pirates -- to loot Libya's gold. The Russian media, in addition to Perkins, reported that the Pan-Africanist Qaddafi, the former President of the African Union, had been advocating that Africa use the gold so plentiful in Libya and South Africa to create an African currency based on a gold dinar.

The Stupid Fuckers wouldn't listen -- Now all of us are in a life threatening time

(This is a second try post this with the name of a candidate removed as the post was blocked by tammywammy.)

The stupid fuckers wouldn't listen -- so let them asphixiate ocean and land animals, and eventually the whole world.

The information provided at the link was funded by the National Science Foundation and published in the American Geophysical Union journal Global Biogeochemical Cycles.



One presidential candidate has made this a first priority calling it a "dire emergency".

The National Science Foundation has just released a report showing that climate is changing more and more rapidly as non-linear processes accelerate the damage. Loss of oxygen is one of the most serious problems surfacing in my lifetime, getting worse with each passing year. That is why this presidential election is so critically important. It may already be too late, but if not, the steps to stop it must be drastic, and immediate.

Bernardo de La Paz hotly criticized my original post saying that the paper was not discussing ATMOSPHERIC oxygen, but only ocean oxygen. I asked him to read the paper and he said he did. What he missed was this easily found quote from the paper:

The entire ocean -- from the depths to the shallows -- gets its oxygen supply from the surface, either from the atmosphere or from phytoplankton, which release oxygen into the water through photosynthesis.


The stupid fuckers wouldn't listen -- so let them asphixiate along with their families, pets and

ocean and land animals, and eventually the whole world.

How the DNC uses the "delegate system" to scuttle the competition, even if he wins the popular vote

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Bernie-Didn-t-Win-New-Hamp-by-Rob-Kall-Bernie-Sanders-2016-Presidential-Candidate_Bottom-up_Democracy_Gerrymandering-160211-723.html?show=votes%23allcomments



It's true. Bernie earned 15 delegates by winning 62.5% of the Democratic vote-- the bottom up democratic way. But Hillary also received 15 delegates. The difference is, she earned 9 delegates because people voted for her. But the anti-democratic, top down Democratic Party provides a system that prevents the people from electing candidates. The DNC enabled her to have six superdelegates. That makes the New Hampshire delegate count a tie-- 15 to 15.

As it stands, Bernie Sanders could continue to win popular votes in more early primary states and lose or tie elections because the DNC gives Hillary superdelegates. This is comparable to intra-party gerrymandering.

This is bullshit, an outrageous obscenity against justice and Democracy. It should go no further.

I demand that the Democratic party eliminate superdelegates ASAP.

We live in a time where the system tries to disconnect us from participation in influencing how things are decided. A handful of elites are in charge of a very top down system and they like it that way. Superdelegates are an invention of the Democratic party-- designed to prevent popular candidates from winning primaries. Superdelegates are elected officials-- members of the senate, the house of representatives. Here, Wikipedia provides more details:

For Democrats, superdelegates fall into two categories: delegates seated based on other positions they hold, who are formally described (in Rule 9.A) as "unpledged party leader and elected official delegates" (unpledged PLEO delegates); andadditional unpledged delegates selected by each state party (in a fixed predetermined number), who are formally described (in Rule 9.B) as "unpledged add-on delegates" and who need not hold any party or elected position before their selection as delegates.
And here's who the superdelegates are, according to Wikipedia:

"There is no fixed number of unpledged PLEO (Party Leaders and Elected Officials) delegates. The number can change during the campaign as particular individuals gain or lose qualification under a particular category. The unpledged PLEO delegates are: all Democratic members of the United States Congress, Democratic governors, members of the Democratic National Committee, "ll former Democratic Presidents, all former Democratic Vice Presidents, all former Democratic Leaders of the U.S. Senate, all former Democratic Speakers of the U.S. House of Representatives and Democratic Minority Leaders, as applicable, and all former Chairs of the Democratic National Committee."


Originally, Superdelegates made up 14% of the total delegates. It has crept up to 20%, with the additional delegates appointed by powerful people in the party. This has always been bullshit. This is what elites holding top down power do when bottom up movements threaten their power. SNIP

Microsoft app used to tally votes at Iowa caucus fails in some areas reported by USA TODAY

http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/news/2016/02/01/microsoft-app-used-tally-votes-iowa-caucus-fails-some-areas/79674064/

It does seem strange that Microsoft played such a big part in this with their many glitches in most of their software these days... but this particular one is especially worrisome:

Will the 2016 Primaries Be Electronically Rigged?

Is there anything we techno nerds can do about this problem? I know Obama had a crack team.

++++++++++++++++

FROM TRUTHOUT


Will the 2016 Primaries Be Electronically Rigged?

Primary election rigging in the coming weeks and months is all but assured if American voters and candidates don't take steps to prevent it now. Evidence that US voting systems are wide open to fraud and manipulation should be taken seriously in light of the unprecedented high-stakes elections we're facing.

Not in recent history have American voters been presented with such radically polarized candidates, forcing a crucial choice for the direction of our future, and possibly upending long-established centers of power.
Local fixers, insider operatives, rogue hackers and even foreign countries could all rig US elections electronically.

It's no secret that US primaries have been tightly controlled by the two ruling parties, usually to the benefit of their favored candidates. If this internal manipulation (some might call it rigging) is not publicly condoned, neither is it loudly condemned.

This year, however, the primary season is shaping up to be a battle royal between the political establishment and outsider insurgencies who are challenging the party elites and defying their usual filters, money and manipulations. And it seems all bets are off.

I FREAKED OUT when I realized

what is NOT being done to insure that whichever Dem wins the White House, that there is a PLAN to take over the house and senate so we can really see change in the system.

DOES ANYONE KNOW OF SUCH A PLAN?

I see that Hillary has donated millions to Dem candidates running for the House and Senate... but she has a LOT more money and has a LOT of help from the PACS to get their people in. Bernie has donated nothing to those races, probably because of a need to conserve funds (a guess only).

Much of the worry about a Bernie presidency that I'm reading about today is that there is no PLAN to take over those houses.

For those interested in what candidates are vulnerable, not vulnerable, maybe vulnerable, etc.... here is a great resource:

FYI... I'm a Bernie fan, but I want to see him succeed with the revolution that we so badly need.
