We’re out of time on climate change. And Hillary Clinton helped get us here...

(Opinion, Ref: The Guardian)
by Naomi Klein

The problem with Clinton World is structural. It’s the way in which these profoundly enmeshed relationships – lubricated by the exchange of money, favours, status and media attention – shape what gets proposed as policy in the first place.

For instance, under the Clintons’ guidance, drug companies work with the foundation to knock down their prices in Africa (conveniently avoiding the real solution: changing the system of patenting that allows them to charge such grotesque prices to the poor in the first place). The Dow Chemical Company finances water projects in India. (Just don’t mention their connection to the ongoing human health disaster in Bhopal, for which the company still refuses to take responsibility.). And it was at the Clinton Global Initiative that the airline mogul Richard Branson made his flashy pledge to spend billions solving climate change (almost a decade later, we’re still waiting, while Virgin Airlines keeps expanding).

How ‘Citizens United’ is helping Hillary Clinton win the White House

Reforms wait as Democrat's allies target GOP with super PACs, ‘dark money’
By Dave Levinthalemail 5:01 am, April 7, 2016 Updated: 5:47 am, April 7, 2016

Indeed, a Center for Public Integrity investigation reveals that Clinton’s own election efforts are largely immune from her reformist platform. While Clinton rails against “unaccountable money" that is “corrupting our political system,” corporations, unions and nonprofits bankrolled by unknown donors have already poured millions of dollars into a network of Clinton-boosting political organizations. That’s on top of the tens of millions an elite club of Democratic megadonors, including billionaires George Soros and Haim Saban, have contributed.

I’ve known Hillary Clinton since she was 19 years old, and have nothing but respect for her. In my view, she’s the most qualified candidate for president of the political system we now have.

But Bernie Sanders is the most qualified candidate to create the political system we should have, because he’s leading a political movement for change... (RR)

Here's the roll call votes from the cowards in committee to restrict reproductive rights

State House committee OKs bill tightening abortion restrictions
The bill, approved 16-10, would move the state’s ban on abortions after 24 weeks up to 20 weeks.

PA House "Health" Committee link: http://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/RCC/Public/listVoteSummaryH.cfm?sYear=2015&sInd=0&cteeCde=55&theDate=04/04/2016&RollCallId=1501

Committee HEALTH Date April 4, 2016
Bill/Resolution HB1948 PN3056 Type of Motion Report Bill As Committed
Maker of Motion Rep. Topper Seconded by Rep. Ward
Brief Description Amends the Abortion Control Act in Title 18 (Crimes Code) regarding abortion regulations, including changing the upper limit of when an elective abortion is available and prohibiting the practice of dismemberment abortions.

Governor Wolf will veto this move, he has said.

The committee "narrowly decided" not to postpone the vote in order to hold a hearing. Can't be bothered with a hearing, let alone passing a budget in this state whilst the same General ASSembly is busy getting their hands into our reproductive decisions.

This GA needs an enema.

Unsure where this belongs, cause it's ABOUT OUR LOSS OF AL JAZEERA BROADCAST

... MODS - let me know if I should post in GD

Anyone who watches cable and therefore, Al Jazeera, knows that they are dropping Al Jazeera America. Sad fact, for sure, as this is the most responsible international/national/news/journalism in a long time.

As it goes off the air soon, I'm asking those who are subscribers (for me, it's Verizon FioS) to call them and request that Al Jazeera be replaced with FREE SPEECH TV.

We need to be strong in numbers requesting this. FiOS hasn't made a decision what AJA will be replaced with.

Thanks, everyone,

Think we don't live in an oligarchy? Think again...

We're getting up out of our chairs to do something (Feel the Bern video)

I reALLY like this one...

"They're shutting us down for protesting..."

The University of Illinois IS A PUBLIC university. The Drumpf political rally was shut down moments ago...

What a STUPID move. Now they're not able to exit properly... parking garages are barricaded by police who are still unable to content with confrontation.

NONE OF THIS was happening before the rally was shut down.

This was a place packed with thousands of people rallying for Drumpt. But many more protestors formed outside of this. After the Rally was Cancelled, now a bunch of Drumpfucks to massively exit toward the THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE who are there to protest against them.


All they were trying to say was that the racist and xenophobic actions growing around Trump was enough.

Now, you have FUCKING CNN spinning crazily about the fights and culpability of "the protestors".

This is an urban campus... a commuter campus... very diverse population. About 9,000 were allowable within their right to protest.

Trump Rally has NO right to kick out protestors! It's a state university...

The University of Illinois IS A PUBLIC university. What a STUPID move to have protestors removed. After the Rally was Cancelled, now a bunch of Drumpfucks to massively exit toward the THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE who are there to protest against them.
