Just a Question?

If it is not legal to donate more than $2,800.00 (two thousand eight hundred dollars) to any 

one Presidential campaign for any one candidate...

 Than why is it legal for a candidate (Bloomberg) to in effect donate $35,000,000.00, that's 

(thirty five million dollars) to the Bloomberg presidential campaign?

It should not matter if it's his money or not, it still is the one person Bloomberg, donating

 $35,000,000.00 to the Presidential election campaign of the one candidate, Bloomberg.

Am I the only one who to see this as a Problem?

This in effect paves the way for the super wealthy too outright buy a

"Mayor Pete" Another Dishonest Player.


    Ryan Grim's EXPLOSIVE REPORTING: Buttigieg's misleading/aggressive efforts to win over black voters  


 Pete Buttigieg's Shameful Ploy To Grow South Carolina Support


Print Story Originally Publishes In The Intercept by Ryan Grim.

Pete Buttigieg Touted Three Major Supporters of His Douglass Plan for Black America. They Were Alarmed When They Saw It.


Oh and when the news makes a big deal that he was a mayor of South Bend, as if it was a tremendous effort to have a Democratic victory, well in the last 120 years there was 16 Democrats as mayor for a total of 26 terms and there were 5 Republicans for a total of 8 terms. There has been a Democratic Mayor since 1975, or to put it another way Democrats have controlled the seat for 54 years, in other words you only needed to have a pulse and say you’re a Democrat to win.

"Mayor Pete” as he dubbed himself is just another corporate pre-packed candidate, but with media and billionaire backing, So now Mayor Pete wants to repackage America and hand it off to corporate just as he did in South Bend, with his Tax increment financing or better known as TIF.  Through the use of TIF, municipalities typically divert future property tax revenue increases from a defined area or district toward an economic development project or public improvement project in the community. Tax increment financing, TIF subsidies are not appropriated directly from a city's budget, but the city incurs loss through foregone tax revenue. So to explain it better, your future tax increases, (which now will definitely increase to pay for this project) does not go into your area, but to somewhere else, and as your areas needs repair or normal upkeep due to aging, it does not get done unless you pay the tax again or a further tax increase that you already paid but was diverted somewhere else, while the somewhere else pays no tax.

Economists at Department of Economics Iowa State University, claimed that "existing taxpayers, its householders, wage earners, and retirees are aggressively subsidizing business growth and population" TIF designated zones in Iowa.

TIF enables gentrification. It only allows players to participate who have a lot of money to invest that they usually get to get grants from the Federal government at low interest loans, and large tax breaks so that they make money on the deals, and the average person is stuck with the bill.

While he was mayor he used TIF to finance his deals with corporate controlling the outcome. The full effect has not hit the average household in South Bend as yet...but it will in years to come, but by then few people will remember it was "Mayor Pete" that created the problem.

As far as his military background  According to CNN, Buttigieg was deployed to Afghanistan for six months as a U.S. Navy Reserve intelligence officer. He spent six years “as an intelligence officer in the Navy Reserves.” There is nothing wrong with the Navy Reserves, but the media leads you to believe he was full time Boots on the ground.

Buttigieg also spent time in Afghanistan and Iraq as a civilian contractor “for the global consulting firm McKinsey & Company, where he worked from 2007 to 2010

McKinsey & Company Role in corporate accounting scandals Enron scandal

Enron was the creation of Jeff Skilling, a McKinsey consultant of 21 years, who was jailed after the company collapsed. McKinsey reportedly "fully endorsed the dubious accounting methods that caused the company to implode in 2001."[92] Enron reportedly used McKinsey on 20 different projects,[95] and McKinsey consultants had "used Enron as their sandbox."[95]

McKinsey denied giving Enron advice on financing issues or having suspicions that Enron was using improper accounting methods.

As to McKinsey & Company, McKinsey's alumni have been appointed as CEOs or high-level executives at Google, American Express, Facebook, Boeing, IBM, Westinghouse Electric, Sears, AT&T, PepsiCo, and Enron. McKinsey alumni have held positions with Tony Blair's office. Citicorp and Merrill Lynch have also hired many McKinsey alumni.

Could this be why Mayor Pete gets large campaign donations as well as “Favorable Press” with Google and Facebook and AT&T controlling more than 90% of the internet traffic and news feeds, don’t forget that You-tube is part of Google.

This statement from McKinsey method of operation is very telling about just what Pete is doing.

A typical McKinsey engagement can last between two and twelve months and involves three to six McKinsey consultants. An engagement is usually managed by a generalist that covers the region the client's headquarters are located in and specialists that have either an industry or functional expertise. Unlike some competing consulting firms, McKinsey does not hold a policy against working for multiple competing companies (although individual consultants are barred from doing so). This has sometimes led to accusations of sharing confidential information or re-packaging a competitor's tactics as best practices.

In other words you take your competitions ideas and claim them as your own. This explains why he cannot articulate any of his ideas, but only uses vague generalities when talking about them.

First he steals Bernie's ideas then repackages them with DNC ideas, like “he is for Medicare 4 all, but for all who want it”.

Or he is for doing something about Climate Change like the “Green New Deal”, but we need to re-join the Paris Climate Accords, first and have a conversation about what to do about it. Again AOC’s and Bernie's ideas merged with Corporate and DNC repacking, and again never doing any meaningful change to resolve the problem, more incremental change I am still waiting for the incremental changes promised to us in the 1960’s

And as to Pete's money, well he has received the most large billionaire donors support then any other candidate, They most likely came from McKinsey  client list like Google, Facebook, AT&T Citicorp, Amex and Merrill Lynch is it any wonder?

Now I can't help but to wonder Why this is happening now and Mayor Pete is touted as leading in Iowa while having only single digits on a national polls?

OK it is no secret that the DNC is against Bernie as well as the rest of the main stream media going back to before 2016.

Now consider this Nancy Pelosi, was against impeaching Trump for over a year, even longer when taking into account the emoluments clause of the Constitution, but Pelosi picks now to do it.

No one remembers that they made Jimmy Carter sell his family peanut farm when he was elected because of the emoluments clause. But not Trump. Nancy Pelosi never said a word. It wasn't important... The Constitution just wasn't important enough for her, even with precedence to back her up.

So Why Now?

The two convergences.

There is this old belief that whoever wins Iowa could go on to win the nomination. 

If anything this story proves that "Mayor Pete" is willing to lie.

McKinsey & Company a firm for whom he worked for has demonstrated a culture of doing just that... lying. 

The impeachment hearing will go on till January or February.

The Iowa Caucus start on February 3, 2020.

All Members of the Senate MUST be there 6 days a week, they are the jury in a jury trial.

Are you getting the picture?

You can't be in Iowa or anywhere else, campaigning and in the Senate at the same time.

Remember "Mayor Pete" was at a meeting with Nancy Pelosi in April 16 2019

when the DNC was nervous about stopping Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden hadn't even considered running as yet.

Bernie was way ahead of everyone at the time and there was only 11 candidates in the race.

No one could figure out why Mayor Pete was at the meeting?

The outcome of the meeting was the sudden rush of people who had to be in the race.

It was the Democrat's turn at the Clown Car.

You see the DNC touted that they got rid of the Super delegates that cheated Bernie in 2016,


For those of you who do not know

Unpledged delegates, better known as superdelegates* will make up about 16% of Democratic Party delegates in 2020. These party insiders are part of each state's delegation, but are not committed to vote based on the outcome of the state's primary or caucus. This has caused considerable friction over the years. This came to a head in 2016 when many superdelegates announced early support for Hillary Clinton, creating the perception that the party was putting its thumb on the scale in her favor against Bernie Sanders. 

Superdelegates will no longer vote on the first ballot at the convention unless there is no doubt about the outcome. To win on the first ballot, the frontrunner must secure the majority of pledged delegates available during the nominating contests (primary and caucus) leading up to the Democratic Convention.  We estimate^ 3,979 total pledged delegates, with a majority being 1,990. 

All delegates become unpledged and superdelegates will also vote if the convention is contested (i.e., more than one ballot is needed to select a nominee). For those subsequent ballots, a majority of all 4,745 delegates (2,373) will be needed to secure the nomination.


After that meeting, the DNC straegty was to just kept adding candidates into the race to dilute the amount of votes that Bernie could get forcing the superdelegates to make the choice.

That explains the DNC Clown Car, and why people are staying in the race with only 5% and going lower in all the polls. There are people with 0% and 1% and going lower and still in the race. When and if anyone drops out they are replaced with someone else.

They are either a Billionaire or someone with Billionaire backing and are a corporate friendly centrist.


Bernie just keeps plugging along speaking truth to power.

Mainstream media even tried the line that Bernie is washed up and just keeps saying the same old thing.

Well that backfired because people looked into what Bernie has said for the last 40 years and found out he is RIGHT and that because NOTHING has changed, for the better it has just gotten worse for the average person.

Mainstream News tried to tell us we wanted a conservative centrist candidate, like all the ones that lost elections to the Republicans in over 1,000 seats through the county in State houses, Governors, and Congressional offices, in Washington.

Others tried to copy Bernie for a quick rise up till they did the DNC pivot to the right, thinking no one would notice like Kamala Harris with her constant answers of saying first she was for something progressive than the next day saying she was against that and misunderstood the question the day before, and media wonders why she is now at 3%.

It appears that most people did not want the same old thing, again.

People are tired of endless wars everywhere, costing us the lives of our family members and costs now in the trillions of dollars and over 800 military bases around the world. A military that cannot account for 21 TRILLION dollars

People are tired of rights and freedoms taken away in the name of protecting us from the bad guys…

People want a real progressive movement for the people.

The main stream news now started to just ignore Bernie, but that is not working out so well.

Bernie is drawing crowds in the 10's of thousands now.

The bad copies are losing favor as well.

Now a caucus is something that is hard to rig, unless you actually get the person there, 

No electronic bait and switch or electronic evaporating vote.

SO, you put your money on "Mayor Pete" and then have the news work overtime night and day.

"Mayor Pete" 2019 Iowa State Fair

Telling everyone "Mayor Pete" is in the lead... With 8% in the national polls.

Use the big lie...

If you tell the lie over and over and over again eventually people believe it is true.

All of the other top candidates believe in the current form of capitalism, which is actually socialism for the wealthy and nothing left for the people.

Money to bail out Wall Street… OK

More money for the Military… OK

Money to give Billionaire Corporation’s huge tax cuts… OK

Money to give billionaires huge tax cuts…OK

Notice no one ever asks “How are we going to pay for it?”

But whenever we want Free Public College like we once had before Reagan dismantled it. We get told…How are we going to pay for it?

When we ask for a Medicare 4 All system that other countries with less resources have we are told … How are we going to pay for it?

When we say we want our country cleaned up of this toxic mess corporations have made of it with Fracking and mountain top removal to get to the coal…

We get told…How are we going to pay for it?

When people try to stop these pipelines going around the country, our courts tell us before it is put on line it doesn’t leak... but if it does we will address it then and when it does, like Keystone Pipeline that Leaked 400,000 Gallons of oil In North Dakota, above one of the largest aquifer in North America, were told we can’t stop it now that is completed, besides you should have spoken up before it was put on line.

When we want Monsanto held to account for the poisoning us and our food supply with the same basis chemical found in Agent Orange, Monsanto first says it is safe that you can drink it and when he is offer it he reply no I’m not an idiot. I guess we are the idiots in his eyes Capitalism at work again.

When Nestles pumps the Aquifers in California of millions of gallons each year for years, while paying pennies for millions of gallons a day, but our politicians say here is a license retroactively protecting you from past violations?

Californian is a state now burning to ashes due to lack of water, but were are told we can’t stop capitalist.  

When we want clean water and a stop to corporations poisoning our land and water, we are told we Americans are capitalist and can’t stop corporations’ from making money… that includes even at the cost of the lives of every working class person.

Remember Elizabeth Warren, said “I’m a capitalist to my bones

Nancy Pelosi Proudly proclaimed "We are capitalists in America”

Pete Buttigieg uses TIF’s to rob from the poor to give to the rich, proving he is a capitalist.

Kamala Harris who in 2016 met Clinton’s big wealthy money donors in "The Hampton’s" to secure funding for her 2020 run, who also did not prosecute Steve Manichean for his bank’s widespread misconduct in California and then getting a $2,000 donation from him for her campaign. Again Capitalism at work.

Will this latest plan stop Bernie…

I don’t think so because as Bernie keeps trying to tell us it’s not about him it’s us.

If we stand together there is nothing that we can’t do.

Remember the lessons of our fathers and grandfathers who learned that lesson in the early 1930’s and 40’s

They created Labor Unions, Social Security, Free schools and colleges.

Time Will Tell

If we can catch lightning in a bottle again in 2020.

if we join together and remember…

It’s about us.

Medicare for all is a BILL Introduced by Bernie Sanders,

It is not a framework as Elizabeth Warren likes to call it. 

The Bill's are S.1804 and H.R.1384

S.1804 — 115th Congress (2017-2018) 

and now 

H.R.1384 — 116th Congress (2019-2020) 


It is NOT a framework as Elizabeth Warren likes to call it. 

Bernie Sanders has introduced it as a bill long before 

Elizabeth Warren began coping Bernie's Platform. 

And if she doesn't have a plan for something, yet,.. 

It's because Bernie Sanders hasn't wrote it yet.


Do you know of the history of The Long March In China?


Have you ever heard of the Game GO?

A Brief History of Go: The Oldest Board Game in the World


Both of these are very important in understanding that China, has already prepared for someone like Trump.

Well Trump picked a fight with someone who has led him into a dead-end, while Trump keeps boasting how smart of a trader he is. How?

By using his biggity and need to control everyone against him as one strategy.

 Watch this

Huawei CEO to US: We will survive without you (Full show)


There will never be a settlement with China, with these trade wars, unless China wants one, and they have been preparing for years.

Remember when George W. Bush was elected and in the first few months into his presidency we lost a spy plane over China?

Yes George got it back but what few news outlets reported on we got it back dismantled... can you say reversed engineering, that was almost 20 years ago now, and Bush did nothing, but boast “We got it back”

Trump is using economic sanctions like a weapon, to get his way with countries around the world now from the time he got into office.

China knew this and had planned for a way of surviving and fighting back, long before Trump was elected.

I have followed this for months now and have seen it coming.

This is going to be another failed “Business Deal “for Trump, but this time, he is going to put the entire United States economy up to loose. As I said before thanks' to American companies wanting cheaper labor in China, and gutting American production, China is in the cat bird seat when it comes to Trade Wars.

Not only do we produce very little manufactured good, if we started to try to rebuild it again tomorrow we would need years to even start. We not only need to build the factories, and machinery to put in them,  but we no longer have the trained labors to work in them.

All of Trumps Bellicose bluster as of the last few weeks from wanting to buy Greenland to how great the American economy is doing has all been smoke and mirrors to stop people from actually seeming what is going on. His demanding that the fed cut interest rates is EXACTLY WHAT YOU ONLY DO WHEN THE ECONOMY IS BAD. His talking about more tax cuts is again what you do in a bad economy, to help revive it.

This tax cut idea is to further allow the rich to plunder whatever value is left in their companies with stock buy backs to inflate the companies prices so as to sell their privately owned shares and but the bill on the company, and the government one last time before the fall. Because as before the tax cut cost the American economy nearly 2 Trillion dollars, something you do not do when you need every penny is go out and borrow more money.

Watch this news broadcast. It shows you how China is not backing down from the fight that Bully Trump put the US in.

Soon Trump will not be able to hide it anymore. Oh one more thing China is not in this alone, every country that Trump has sanctioned or put tariffs for no apparent reason is either in it or potentially will be in it with China, Why? Because people wherever you go in the world, no one likes a bully. So now what is Trump going to do, put sanctions on them, put tariffs on them if they do not do what he wants?

Oh he already did that, now what?

Start shooting, Oh we are already doing that, we are bombing 8 countries, and illegally occupying them in the name of fighting terrorism.

Small fact the Taliban now occupies more land in Afghanistan then they did 18 years ago when we first went in.

Why won't we leave?

We want the 9 Trillion dollars in minerals that are there, that Russia found while they were in their war with them.

Like the old saying goes “Afghanistan is where Empires go to die”, hell they stopped Alexander the great, England and Russia, to name a few.

Watch the above news video if you haven’t already.

What Is Good For Trump Is Bad For America


A Little Story


The dollar just hit its highest level of 2019, even as Trump continues his full-court press for a weaker currency


So why is Trump trying to weaken the dollar?

The Strong Dollar is good for the American Consumer in this system that the corporate structure set up by moving millions of American Companies, along with the firing of American workers ove seas.

It takes fewer dollars to buy the products that are no longer produced domestically.

Strong dollar means that it is caused by inflation and that is bad for the average consumer.

So why is it we are told that there is little or no inflation?

Consumer spending accounts for approximately 70% of the US economy, and a stronger dollar is a net benefit for this prime driver of the economy. It makes imports cheaper, so everything from noodles to luxury automobiles should cost less

The effect of a stronger dollar on financial markets is also mixed. Perhaps the most direct impact of a rising greenback is its adverse impact on corporate earnings. This was a major reason why the S&P 500 had its biggest decline in a year in January 2015.

The appreciating US dollar is a net positive for the US economy, as robust consumer demand and muted inflation results in strong economic growth, offsetting negative effects such as the impact on exports and corporate earnings.

Again I ask why Trump is trying to weaken the dollar.

It could also be, but this is just speculation, he is invested in foreign companies and stands to lose countless sums of money with a stronger dollar.

Well let’s just look at his tax filings… Oh we can’t our democratic resistance is failing to just send the Sargent of arms to the IRS and demand the records, that is fully in their power to do so, WITHOUT all this nonsense of we have to go to court. What they are doing is like being found guilty saying; no I’m going to sue for finding me guilty.

Congress Really Can Demand, And Get, Trump's Tax Returns. Here's How


Strong Dollar Dampens Inflation


As the U.S. dollar strengthens against the currencies of its trading partners, it takes fewer dollars to purchase imported goods, and the prices of imported goods into the U.S. tend to fall. The lower-priced imported goods then tend to put downward pressure on the prices of competing domestically-produced goods. 

In another way of putting it is that if we produced our products domestically again we would not need to be dependent on imports thus, this entire argument would mean nothing to the American consumer. It would have no effect whatso ever on the American consumer. It would only affect those that wanted something from outside of the United States.

IE: Sony once made the best TV on the market and it would cost more, say $350.00 compeered to an American TV for $250.00 now, back then, $100.00 was a lot of money but if you felt you really wanted the Sony you paid the differences. But most Americans bought the American products, because they felt the difference in quality was not worth the extra cost. Oh and one way for the cost increase was by, you guessed it, tariffs, that went back into the US Treasury.


How A Strong Greenback Affects the Economy (AAPL, BMY)


A weak dollar hurts more Americans than it helps


What a stronger dollar means for the economy


Could this be the reason why Trump wants his cake and eat it too?

You see the Fed raise inflation so as to raise interest rates. The Fed needs a reason to increase interest rates because when there is a recession or even a depression you need to lower interest rates to spark consumer spending. The lower the interest rates are at the start of the down turn the less simulative effect that they have.

Trump wants lower interest rates and a weaker dollar, two things that are opposed in this current momentary financial system. In other words it can’t be done, or done for very long, without manipulation of the money supply. He needs the low interest rates to offset the payments to the national debt to try to make his massive tax cuts not look so bad, as well as make the payments to the banks for his16 trillion dollar deficit spending especially on the military when we are not at any declared war. When all totaled the military spending, between actual budget and off budget spending tops out at just over 1 trillion dollars this year alone and due to increase next year.

Could that be why we are constantly told when we can’t afford any programs for the Average American citizen, or to just do the normal repairs and upgrades on our water infrastructure, our schools our bridges, our healthcare system? When the way to pay for any of that is worked out, it is shot down because Nancy Pelosi wants to institute Pay-Go for any progressives issues, and they say to themselves thank you for finding that money then precede to add it to the military budget or NSA surveillance network, and immediately spend it there and say nice idea progressives but we can’t afford it now.

Dem leaders embrace pay-go (SOURCE)

The Perils of Pelosi’s ‘Pay-Go’ Promise (SOURCE)

Pelosi's 'Pay-Go' Rule Is Entirely Counter-Productive to Progressive Policy Goals (SOURCE)

Where was Pay-Go when expanding the military budget by 32 billion dollars? I’m just asking.

Just one other item I need to Say.

I am sick and tired of hearing about the 1 to 2 trillion dollars in tax cuts given to the wealthy, and the pundits act as though it is written in stone and can never be undone. WHY…This is a complete lie. 

Let me tell you a little story. 

Did you ever wonder why when you see an elephant it has it's leg chained to the ground on a stake and why is it a very large and powerful animal just doesn't walk away? Because, you can plainly see the elephant is more than strong enough to just lift it's leg and pull the stake out of the ground.

 It because of conditioning. 

You see, from the time the elephant is a baby, it is chained to the ground with a stake that it cannot pull out of the ground because the elephant, is too small, and for years while that elephant pulls on the stake with his leg, the stake does not move, and in the beginning it hurts it's leg. Growing up the elephant realizes it cannot free it's leg and over time it tries less and less, exerting less force because the elephants leg does not get hurt as much. Until on day the elephant just gives up trying because that way the elephant does not hurt it's leg anymore. The elephant just resigns itself to it's fate, that it will never free it's leg and that the person that unlocks his leg is a master to be respected, because how could someone so much smaller than the elephant free it from it's chains. Even though the elephant as an older more powerful animal the elephant never realizes it can just lift it's leg and be free, due to the years of conditioning.

Unfortunately we are the elephant and don't know it.

Just elect real progressives and TRUE PROGRESSIVES. Look into their past and where they have come from, if they never spoken the words and actions of a true progressive, pass them by, say no thank you to their word-salad bullshit. If they cannot articulate in words you cannot easily understand, don't be blaming yourself thinking they are so much smarter then you. They are not, they are only conning you, with "If You Cannot Dazzle Them With Brains, Then Baffle Them With Bullshit.

TAX the Wealthy AGAIN! Yes Again we once did at a rate of 90% on everything over the first  $5 Million, and that was when the average person earned an average of $100.00 a week, and that was a decent income.. 

We have done it before. How do you think America built a middle class? It was by paying labor it’s fair share of the profits for their labor. After all it was labor that produced the profits.…

Lincoln once said "Labor precedes profit, for without labor there would be no profit". 


The higher tax rate was there for a reason. It was to control the Wealthy that were never satisfied, when enough was never enough, and to stop the hording of Americans wealth. If they were becoming that wealthy it was because they were not paying their workers what they deserved in the first place and in effect stealing the money from labor, OUR MONEY!

Isn’t time we told them ENOUGH!  give it back!


The only thing stopping it, is us…we need to find “us” again, and end the division to be a UNION of people.

Rather than fighting about what we disagree on let's work together on the things we do agree on.

We will find that we agree on the idea, but not the way to achieve it. Once you agree on the idea, the how is now the easiest part of the concept, rather than just dismissing the concept entirely.

Say for instance you want a fire for some heat and only have one log, but I want to use a match, and light it on a windy beach because it is pretty. You want to use the rubbing of two sticks together in a protected communal space, and someone else wants to go to their house and use their fireplace, and when they feel like it maybe have one or two people they like come in to warm up. So rather than just giving up and everyone freezing, you talk to each other and work it out. I know that this is an over simplification, but you get the idea, you all agree on the concept, it's just working out the how in a way that benefits everyone the best.

When a politician gives you this lofty word-salad of, "If we all work together to overcome our differences and put aside our ideas, we can accomplish so many wonderful things, we will be able to BLA BLA BLA BLA BLA BLA BLA BLA we can  get there... just walk away. They are out for only themselves. When Someone else Suddenly panders to you with the ideas of someone else saying what is popular, while never ever having followed that belief before and then changing what they say than blaming you for misunderstanding them...walk away. When Someone just discovered that they are now on the side of what was first brought up by someone else and acting like it is their idea, saying follow me, while the other person is still there, and they keep changing their idea to match the other person with the ideas... why would you want the copy when the original is right in front of you?

For no apparent reason Trump comes out and says that he wants to put long range missiles in Asia, and Australia pushing China to respond, and thus the markets, but nothing of much happened with the market, it just seemed to brush it off.

 Then he announces that China will be buying more American Farm produce... still nothing. "The boy who cried wolf", was not working, because Trump also said that he was going to buy the farmers votes,... I mean going to give the farmers 25 Billion in aid to compensate for their losses in China revenue, but to the markets that was a loss. Why, because Trump was now taking any revenue from the tariffs, which that's where it must come from, and paying the farmers, so now wall street couldn't cash in on any of the tariff money.

 The Plunge protection team held the market's to slow steady losses. The very next day Trump for no apparent reason said that he was now going to put tariffs on the remaining 300 billion in China exports into America, and China announced that they would NOT BUY ANY American Farm products at all. 

The markets now reacted badly at the news. Trump let it fester, for the weekend and into Monday, after the close of the markets, Trump then out of nowhere says he will delay the tariffs until October...Can you guess what happened?  The markets go back up. 

That would be a great time to buy the dip, first you cause the dip then you buy low and sell high. 

Now this is the long range problem for American farmers. Once that farm market is lost, it most likely will be lost for years or decades, if ever to return, because China is now or already has replaced the farm imports with other nations. They are  not about to just drop the new markets in a week or two or even a few years, because of the unstableness Trump has created. Unless Trump intends to continue to give the farmers 25 billion dollars a year or more, they are permanently screwed out of those markets.

The destruction to the American farmer...priceless.

The income to anyone who buys the dip? We don't know! 

Why, because in 2012 Obama signed into law S. 2038 banning any member of congress from using their position from doing just that because of Tom Delay basically running an trading desk out of his office. You see when Martha Stewart did it it was insider trading when congress did it by knowing how the markets would be effected by the laws they passed, it was ok. The only problem 13 months after making it illegal, the Obama administration reversed parts of it with S716. It now removed the public disclosure and only to disclosure to congress if requested by congress.

Congress and Obama Quietly Collude to Undo 'Insider Trading' Law

Evading any fanfare, President Obama followed Congress's lead and quietly signed legislation Monday that gutted provisions of the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act (STOCK) which provided important oversight of government employees, including the President and members of Congress, by requiring disclosure of their finances to the public.

Now I wonder who is refusing to let any one in congress or the public, see their financial and tax records, the name somehow escapes me?

If we could only see his tax records... 

 Or the deals he has made with other "Friendly to Trump" Heads of state, we could possible find that he is doing exactly what the banks did in 2007.

They took out massive diversities bets that the toxic sub-prime loans that they knew would fail, because they were designed to fail and bet that they would fail while telling everyone that they were a "SAFE" Investment.

Why else would Trump be using one of his age old tactics of telling everyone in spite of the obvious that the US economy is the greatest it has ever been, then proceeding to undermine it at every turn.

Using tariffs, which is a Tax on the American people when we have no domestic means of producing the products he is putting tariffs on. The choice to buy American is not there, so there nothing to protect.

He keeps telling us that we will have a deal with China any day while not working anything out, and limiting the meetings to less time then a business lunch.

The last great blunder is he pushes the fed to lower interest rates after the Dow lost nearly 1000 points on his last threats.

He claimed that China was manipulating it's currency, when the ratio of the dollar to the Yuan dropped 7 to 1, when the reality is China actually stopped propping up the Yuan and that is why it fell to a 7 to 1 ratio. Why is that important... because then Trumps Tariffs (Tax on the American people) would go away, making their goods cheaper negating the tariffs. 

The next day the markets go up, and that same day after markets close, he puts even more "tariffs" on China doing exactly what is causing the market instability, and sends an aircraft carrier to the south China Sea, further poking China in the eye.

These are not the actions of good faith negotiations these are tactics of a bully.

China is not Iran, or Venezuela, they are not a country to be underestimated.

When Trump went after Huawei by having Goggle cutting off their operating system thinking it would take years for them to develop another one Huawei had already a working system even better than Goggle.

Then Trump pressured American Chip makers cut off by not selling chips to Huawei, thinking it would take years replace the chips...Huawei had already developed their own chips.

The only people hurt by Trumps games was American Companies, for now Huawei didn't need them anymore, and the loss of business to America was now permanent, rather then just a temporary threat.

Apple, Goggle and Android lost dominance in the market over night.

If you don't know about the "Long March" in China's history you should.

Like I said China is not Iran, or Venezuela, they are not a country to be underestimated.

Unfortunately for the world, Trump has surrounded himself with people Like John Bolton and Mike Pompeio who actually believe and wrote about that America should use a Nuclear war because it is winnable for America.


Then he can RAID and "RID" the system of every social program, like social security, Medicare, Schools, Fire departments, and then privatize everything.

Trump only worships at the alter of money.

We ALL need to stop just going on social media and posting the latest jab at Trump or the latest "Look his orange hair just came off", or calling him the "orange buffoon".  We all need to dig up the story of what he and his administration are doing and tell that story, rather then playing into his game of distraction and deception. For while we all just post the latest trump joke he is up to something else. 

Like the magicians trick watch this hand, while the other hand or the assistant pick your pocket.

Think about it,... Trump is either incredible lucky to have gotten away with all his past dealings in life...


Trump is a Master Con Artist, playing the part of the "Buffoon"

The sooner you all realize Trump is a Master Con Artist and expose him...

the sooner we can, all will stop the con game.

This Title Tells You What You Need To Know

Stocks Rise as Weak Manufacturing Data Raises Hopes for Second Fed Rate Cut

So let me see… manufacturing is falling, nearly 12,000 store closing this year, Boing is losing orders and laying off workers and now forced to park unwanted 737’s in their parking lot for lack of places to put them and hope to fix them and resume production sometime in 2020 their stocks go up and the rest of the stock market as well.


Grounded 737 Max 8 jets parked at Seattle's Boeing Field


This is when, US manufacturing is in a 'technical recession.



This when the Senate passes 2-year budget deal that increases spending by $1.37 trillion in fiscal year 2020 and even higher in 2021. Let me repeat that increases spending by $1.37 trillion in fiscal year 2020 and even higher in 2021. This will increases spending by $1.37 trillion.

This on top of a nearly 2 Trillion dollar Tax cut for the 1%. And a pentagon increase of 32 billion dollars, needed to support our 800 bases around the world in nearly 75% of the world, and not one single country has ever attacked the US since Japan at Pearl Harbor.

Not unless you want to consider 911, but that was by citizens aligned with Saudi Arabia, and President Trump is now giving them Nuclear weapons.

Why is Trump giving nuclear arms to Saudi Arabia?

And Just where do you think that money will come from?


First you basically stop taxing Corporations and the top 1%, and then you go to BACK to the top 1% and borrow the money from them and give the interest as well. Sweet deal don't pay your taxes but LOAN the money to the government and get paid to do it.

Then you go to the middle class and everyone else not in the 1% and say pay up we need to pay this debit. How do you do that, by tax increases and fees. Put tariffs on things Americans need THE PERSON BUYING THE GOODS PAY THE TARIFFS NOT THE OTHER COUNTRY, and where does the money go...BACK TO THE GOVERMENT.

That is why whenever someone like Bernie Sanders or AOC say we need Medicare for all or student debit relief or to fix our infrastructure, or any issue that will benefit the rest of the 99% of country we get told no there is no money. That is because they already have it spent on the 1%., and even when the average American just dares talking about helping them, it angers the 1% and both parties, so much that they just plan on mores ways to impoverish the 99% as a punishment for daring to think about having the government do anything for the Average American citizen.

We are ruled by one party THE WEALTHY TOP 1%!

The Republicans enact the hurtful laws and the Democrats comply and say they can’t stop them.

Funny when the Democrats had the Presidency, the House and the Senate the Republicans managed to stop the Democrats, with NO majorities.

But the Democrats…No we can’t do that… Even with a majority in the house.

Just a Little Bit Of Info For You On This Memorial Day


Did You Know That

We Have Spent $32 Million Per Hour on War Since 2001


NOW!!! The Senate Panel Approves $750 Billion Defense Policy Bill


And Not One Penny On "WARS" of Defence...

ALL On Wars Of Choice

Hell, If Afghanistan was a person born when we first went there, Afghanistan would be old enough to vote already, that is how long we are in just that  one country.

Remember that when you hear that "We Can't Afford to (INSERT" Medicare for all, or go Back to Free college, or clean water, or a real living wage, or real cost of living increases to the Social Security, a program that we pay into, or fix our roads and bridges WITHOUT Privatizing them)... need I go on. 

Just to be clear, Social Security and Medicare programs WE PAID INTO IT, that's why It's NOT A HAND OUT THAT CAN JUST BE CUT. It's called an entitlement program Because we are entitled to it, WE DID PAY THE MONEY For YEARS, and now politicians use the word "entitlement" as though it is a bad word or if they could they would call it a "Free Loader" program.

The only Free loader is the Politicians,

And that includes both parties Including Bill Clinton and Joe Biden wanted to Cut Social Security.

Clinton Would Have Destroyed Social Security if not for Monica Lewinsky


In short he wanted to privatize it in the stock market, but the Monica story broke as they neared completing the deal.

And Joe Biden in the 1995 Balanced Budget Amendment, Not once, not twice, but 4 times he offered it up.



Social Security really is NOT a government service like the military's needing a 10th or 13th Aircraft carrier group, or a politicians perks, or a Bank bailout, (Some pair of boot straps they have, they loose the money and we bail them out with OUR boot straps and then they give themselves millions in bonuses for doing a lousy job). It was a contract made years ago when they took the very first penny from our pay checks.

George W. Bush once said, “A lot of people in America think there is a trust — that we take your money in payroll taxes and then we hold it for you and then when you retire, we give it back to you,” Bush said in a speech at the University of West Virginia at Parkersburg.

“But that’s not the way it works,” Bush said. “There is no trust ‘fund’ — just IOUs that I saw firsthand,” Bush said


YES IOU'S That Both Republicans and Democrats borrowed and now want to NOT pay back.

"Next time a Republican tells you that ‘Social Security is broke,’ remind them that Pres. Bush ‘borrowed’ $1.37 trillion of Social Security surplus revenue to pay for his tax cuts for the rich and his war in Iraq and never paid it back,"

As Politifact (Arbiters of truth on Facebook) likes to say it is a Mostly false statement, because they have until 2020 to pay it back...TO DATE NOT ONE PENNY IS PAID BACK... ONLY THREATS OF PLANNED CUTS TO THE PROGRAMS BEFORE 2020.

It Took Both Parties To Vote The Approval Of The Borrowing, and Plans On Which To Spend It On, I'll Give You A Clue None Of It Went To Any Social Programs For The American People... It Went To The Military Industrial Complex.

 Read War Is A Racket By General Smedly Butler, the most decorated Marine in history, two-time awarding the Congressional Medal of Honor denouncing the military industrial complex. 

Nothing has changed only the rapacious greed has gotten far worse.

War Is Racket pdf. link It's 12 pages give it look for your own sake.

Click Here If above pdf. link is dead War Is a racket

I guess it is like corporate riders, raiding pension and retirement funds,

You Simply Steal the Money, Then You Have To Cut The Program Because It Is Broke, But Then They Keep What they Stole and What Ever Is Left, and Not Pay Any of It Back.

For those of you who say we need it for our defense... This is a comparison for 14 other leading countries in descending order, and some of these countries our friends and allies...

Unless they ALL plan on conspiring against us do we really need to spend this much money on the military????

If you say yes then I respectfully suggest seeing a Psychotherapist, for you have a Psychiatric disorder...

They call it Paranoia.

Where does the tariff money go?
A tariff is a tax on imported goods.
Like all taxes, it is a source of revenue for the government. The importer pays the tariff to treasury agents when the goods enter our country.

Suppose an importer has a $100 million shipment of aluminum, which is now subject to a 10% tariff.
The importer has to pay $10 million to treasury agents in order to get the aluminum into our country.
The $10 million is deposited into the U.S. Treasury.
The importer would need to charge its U.S. customers $110 million for the aluminum in order to recover this money.

What does the U.S. Treasury do with the tariff money?

Good question. From what I can ascertain, it just goes into a general fund to offset the deficit. There is no specific purpose for the revenue.

Biden Sides With Trump, Bolton, and Pompeo in Backing Coup Effort in Venezuela

Democratic frontrunner characterizes effort to overthrow elected goverment of President Nicolas Maduro at gunpoint just another benign effort to "restore democracy" in Latin America

Despite progressive critics and anti-war voices speaking forcefully against the Trump administration's overt backing of the attempted coup d'état by rightwing opposition forces in Venezuela on Tuesday, 2020 Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden aligned himself with the White House by throwing his support behind the overthrow effort.

"The violence in Venezuela today against peaceful protesters is criminal," Biden tweeted on Tuesday. "Maduro's regime is responsible for incredible suffering. The U.S. must stand with the National Assembly & Guaidó in their efforts to restore democracy through legitimate, internationally monitored elections."

But what Biden embraced as an effort to "restore democracy," many foreign policy experts—ones not willing to give the benefit of the doubt to people like national security advisor John Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and President Donald Trump—called something else entirely: a violent effort by Venezuela's rightwing elites, led by Juan Guaidó, to overthrow the elected government of President Nicols Maduro.

In subsequent comments during a campaign stop, Biden called for "calm" in Venezuela but also repeated the White House position that Maduro is not—despite his win in last year's contested elections which the opposition largely boycotted—the legitimate leader of Venezuela:

Biden wasn't alone among top Democrats. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others also expressed support for the military uprising launched by Guaidó.


For critics, however, one of the salient dynamics about Biden's announced support for the U.S.-backed coup in Venezuela in 2019 is what it suggests the former vice president has learned—or rather has not learned—about U.S. intervention (aka "meddling") in the affairs of foreign nations since his support for the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Interviewed by Democracy Now! early on Wednesday, economist and foreign policy expert Jeffrey Sachs, who directs the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University, and Professor Miguel Tinker Salas of Pomona College discussed what they both agree is the dangerous and counterproductive agenda that leaders like Trump, Bolten, Biden, and Pelosi are now pushing in Venezuela.

"What's so stupid about these American policies, these neocon policies," said Sachs, "is they do create disaster, but they don't achieve even the political goals of these nasty people like Bolton. It's not as if they're effective and nasty; they're completely ineffective and totally nasty at the same time."

While acknowledging that Maduro has certainly made mistakes and legitimate criticisms of his government exist, Tinker Salas said the history of U.S. intervention in Latin America—not to mention elsewhere in the world— shows overthrowing governments in this manner "doesn't produce the change that most people want. And what it does is it aggravates conditions for the majority of the population."

Sachs—who last week released a detailed study along with economist Mark Weisbrot on the devastating impact that U.S.-imposed sanctions have had on the Venezuelan economy—added that people backing Guaidó and the coup effort are really just embracing "normal U.S. right-wing foreign policy, nothing different."

"This is the same foreign policy that we saw throughout Latin America in the 20th century," Sachs added. "It's the same foreign policy that we saw catastrophically in the Middle East. This is Mr. Bolton. This is Mr. Bolton's idea of diplomacy. This is Trump's idea of diplomacy. You punch someone in the face. You crush your opponent. You try whatever way you can to get your way. It's very simpleminded. It's very crude."

"And," concluded Sachs, "it never works. It just leads to catastrophe."



The Former USSR Was Failed Capitalism Not Failed Socialism.

When you consider the meaning of the words Socialism and Capitalism The USSR was NEVER a communist social government…. The facts belie the stated meanings in regards to when the USSR collapsed “that it was a failed Socialist government”.

This is the meaning of Socialism

Socialism is a range of economic and social systems characterized by social ownership and democratic control of the means of production as well as the political theories and movements associated with them. Social ownership may refer to forms of public, collective or cooperative ownership, or to citizen ownership of equity.

This is the meaning of Capitalism

Capitalism is a economic system in which investment in and ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange of wealth is made and maintained chiefly by private individuals or corporations, especially as contrasted to cooperatively or state-owned means of wealth.

When considered the meanings of capitalism and Socialism then looking at the USSR whose government was controlling the means of production and distribution, it becomes glaringly obvious that the USSR was in actually a hybrid form of capitalism. They were actually replacing the private form of ownership and control with a government form of control and ownership.


In the meaning of capitalism replace the word PRIVATE with GOVERNMENT…

Does not that describe what system the USSR was?

The workers had no say in what to produce, when to produce, how to produce, or how to distribute the goods. The Government controlled that. The workers had no say in the pay scale either. There was no social part at all.

It is arguable to say that the former USSR may have started as socialism that quickly became government run capitalism that ended as a less virulent form of fascism…but still another form of capitalism.


A political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

Therefore it becomes crystal clear that The USSR WAS NOT a Failed Socialist government but in point of fact it was a failed Communist CAPITALIST government.

Consider your next thoughts very carefully as to what current country Exhibit these trait’s today.

What country has the highest income differences?

What country has most of its corporate structures intertwined with its government?

What country has its politics and voting controlled by the corporate structure, as though they were people.

What country allows private corporate entities owning the voting machine software, that when tallies are questioned, they cannot have access to the software because “it is proprietary software”. And hand counts are “ADJUSTED “to match the voting machines, as if somehow the actual ballots were wrong.

What country continually marginalizes the indigenous population and treats them as children and continues to break treaties with the natives, time and time again.

What country impoverishes it’s population to feed a rapacious military industrial complex, so much so it raids the country’s social programs that its citizens paid into, and now told that the government has to cut the citizen paid for programs, in favor of tax breaks to the very corporate structures and corporate owners and CEO’s that fund their elections, control the votes, control nearly 99% of all of its citizens in favor of themselves.

Think carefully,… for the answer once entered into you mind cannot ever be removed…

It will be like an “eternal flame” that never goes out, but only grows with ever increasing awareness.






But Thankfully This Time... He Will Not Be The Only One Doing So.

Where Have I Heard This Before?

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's new policy of cutting off firms that work with primary challengers


Does any of this sound like you have heard it before, but you just can’t quite put your finger on it.

Bear with me, this story digression in what seems a different direction is unified before the end.

Executive order forcing state agencies to divest from any organizations aligned with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. BDS


Most of them would penalize people or businesses that support the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement targeting Israel over human rights violations. Some of the bills would also hit those who only advocate for boycotting products made in Israeli settlements.


Definition: Israeli settlement

Israeli settlements are civilian communities inhabited by Israeli citizens, almost exclusively of Jewish ethnicity, built predominantly on lands within the Palestinian territories,

The Destructive power of Israel’s AIPAC by buying (excuse me, donating large sums of money) to American politicians in hopes of them doing their bidding is now seeping into every day politics.

The taking away of American Citizens free speech rights under the first Amendment, by the power of law, executive orders and political force is in direct defiance of our Constitution.

Sure the law is not directly saying that you can’t say you support the BDS movement, but directly saying you can say it but we will exert financial pressure on you to shut up. That is ABRIDGING your free speech.

This move is now seeping beyond the original intent of support of a rogue Israeli government that continues to shout out to the world NEVER AGAIN, meaning to them, but it is perfectly all right if Israel conducts systematic genocide on anyone else just as long as you don’t do it to Israel.

These laws, and executive orders, are in DIRECT VIOLATION of the 1st amendment of the Construction:

Amendment I (1)

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Meaning of ABRIDGING:

 (Law) to deprive of (privileges, rights, etc.)

To reduce the effect of a law, privilege or power.

To Divest.

For those of you that don’t know, Federal law supersedes state law.

Meaning states can make weaker laws than the federal laws but not stronger.

Therefore states do not have the right to ABRIDGE your freedom of speech.

We now have the DCCC threatening who you can do business with, in effect controlling that company by a stealth hostile takeover by the DCCC.

If they are publicly saying this, then what they are saying by omission is that, if they do not like a Democratic candidate that is running against an incumbent Democratic they most likely will receive little to no support.


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a good rebuttal and shows this new breed of Progressive Justice Democrats have the People FIRST on their list of who they are working for.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tells Small Donors to Cut Off DCCC Donations, Give Directly to Candidates Instead.


This also means that not only does your entire donation go directly to the candidate of your choice, rather than the DCC deciding just how much if any is given to a candidate that you choose.

Also less “FEES” of your money goes to DCC “Consulting Firms”

Now do you see that through AIPAC’s money and influence to get their way, no matter what the cost to another country’s freedom needs to end, and end NOW!

Israel through AIPAC’s money now has American politicians willing to ignore the First amendment for their own gain. Make no bones about it, curtailing American’s freedom of speech is not in the best interest of America.

It is not anti-Semitic to point out that the king has no clothes.

This sign at a BDS movement says a lot to address just that claim:

It’s The War Hawks That Tried To Kill The Green New Deal


Why do I say that?

What does that have to do with the green new deal?

Most of our latest military actions involve countries that have rich oil deposits.

Still don’t see the connection…

We have a military that is primarily dependent on OIL.

Oil to build it.

Oil to run it.

We have billions of dollars in future contracts building heavily Oil dependent equipment.

We have trillions of Dollars in deployed Oil dependent military equipment.

The green new deal does not exempt the military from its use of oil.

The Green New Deal Phase in and the planet, does not allow the time for the billions upon Trillions of dollars to replace all of the  fossil fuel dependent WAR machinery. Nor does the country have the resources, or the credit either, now that we have given it all to the 1%, calling them tax cuts for everyone.

The only thing that has ever trickled down for the last 50 years is, that you need an umbrella to avoid the yellow rain.

But the even bigger picture is that without the uses of OIL, WE don’t need to be in most, if not all of these Military actions.

 We no longer need the circle jerk of building up The Military Industrial complex so we can get the Oil on behalf of the Koch Brothers, to power the military, to get the Oil to building up The Military Industrial complex so we can get the Oil on behalf of the Koch Brothers, to power the military, to get the OIL…

Wash rinse repeat…indefinitely.

Read War Is Racket by General Smedley Butler.


It's only a 12 page pdf. but poignant even today. Nothing has changed, just the calendar.

Recording of Speech

Amazing but the Green new deal is the world’s best chance for a more peaceful, and healthy planet.




So When Did Venezuela Become Our Enemy?

Is this just another case of how did our oil wound up under Iraq’s deserts, or at least according to John Bolton it did?

"It will make a big difference to the United States economically if we could have American oil companies invest in and produce the oil capabilities in Venezuela." -John Bolton

"We're in conversation with major American companies now...It would make a difference if we could have American companies produce the oil in Venezuela. It would be good for Venezuela and the people of the United States." - John Bolton

Why isn’t that their electoral process is none of our concerns. Especially now that we spent 2 years blaming Russia and now China for involving themselves in our elections.

As Lee Camp pointed out, Cambridge Analytica, based in Brittan was way more involved, but we never declared them enemy and seized their assets, or try to enact forceful change of their government.


So the Answer to the question is, when Venezuela become our enemy?

2 reasons

1.   It was when the people decided that they did not want their country privatized by a private for profit capitalist. They decided to convert their oil reserves into state owned assets and using the proceeds to benefit all the people. Kind of like Alaska is doing now.

2.   It is just a bonus, to call them a failed socialist state, and then frighten people into thinking Bernie’s bad because he is a Democratic socialist.

Somehow a system that favors the1% at the expense of the 99% seems to need a serious overhaul, even more drastic then Roosevelt’s “New Deal”.

In early Indian cultures the needs of the many actually did outweigh the needs of the few or the one…And we had the audacity to call the Native Americans Savage’s.




From Unhinged Republican: Trump For Dictator! 


Trump & Deutsche Bank

This clip talks about Steve Bannon (Which Mainstream News Does NOT cover) is now on another tour going under the mainstream radar and drumming up support for Trump Crime syndicate.

What this clip shows is the mindset of the Trump supporters, and how Steve Bannon instigates anger with a smile, So much so that the women finally says,

“Never in my life did I think I would see a Dictator, but if there’s going to be one then I want it to be Trump”.

The look of anger on her face is unbelievable. She even directs an angry stare  to the women who is with Steve Bannon giving the mike to speakers.

What it is more alarming is what I call “The Colosseum mentality” that feed on each other’s hate and anger so much so that moral thinking is no longer in their frame of reference, only the abstract and the need to hold on to power at any cost even at the expense of Democracy.

Some bank officers didn’t want to lend Trump the money because of his past bankruptcy's, and he didn’t have Assets that he claimed to have had.

What MSNBC or anyone else just skimmed over is “He did not have the Assets he claimed to have had”. or the previous Bankruptcy's, or the fact that he defaulted on previous loans.

What this screams is that Trump is a financial failure and he is doing to the US what he has done to all of his business.That is to over inflate his assets and and add nefarious cash holdings, claiming that it was his, borrow the money based on the over inflated assets, hollow out his companies, launder the money through Deutsche bank, returning the now laundered nefarious cash, and declare bankruptcy, and start the cycle all over again, as illuded to by David K Johnson. "Ties to the mob on" (Democracy Now), Link to his Book signing "The Making Of Donald Trump")

"Lie, gut, repeat."

The only exception is that now instead of daddy bailing him out as the lengthy NYT story some months ago pointed out, he is violating the emoluments clause in the Constitution.

 emoluments clause No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State. Article I, Section 9, Clause 8

Consider this: 

In China, Trump "has 49 pending trademark applications and 77 marks already registered in his own name, most of which will come up for renewal during his term," according to The Associated Press.

AP March 8 2017 China grants preliminary approval to 38 new Trump trademarks


Could this be what the so called trade wars are about...? Threaten countries with tariffs and sanctions in order to get what he wants? The cost has and will be a burden on America working class people. Most Americans can’t just buy an American product anymore, due to the decimation of our manufacturing sectors, so we are a captive audience to pay the increases with the tariffs going directly into the government’s general fund., hence because of the nature of our lack of ability to produce domestically, it becomes nothing more than an additional tax on all Americans to the tune of 30% on Solar panels, 25% on steel, 10% on aluminum etc..

The only reason Aluminum is one of the lower tariffs, is because we do not have the bauxite ore in this country

Now the top producers are Venezuela, India, Russia and China... Odd how Trump either has threatened all of these countries with either trade sanctions or tariffs, all while trying to increase sales of American military hardware requiring large amounts Aluminum. (F35,s, rockets etc.) Meanwhile the average American buys very little aluminum, except for beer and soda, in cans.


It still is follow the money.

10-10-2016               HRC Paid Speeches That Bernie Sanders Called for.


First a Link to Simpson-Bowles

Now Her Speech from Wiki-leaks

*Clinton: “The Simpson-Bowles Framework And The Big Elements Of It Were Right… You Have To Restrain Spending, You Have To Have Adequate Revenues, And You Have To Have Growth.”* CLINTON: So, you know, the Simpson-Bowles framework and the big elements of it were right. The specifics can be negotiated and argued over. But you got to do all three. You have to restrain spending, you have to have adequate revenues, and you have to have growth. And I think we are smart enough to figure out how to do that. [Clinton Speech For Morgan Stanley, 4/18/13]

Economist Paul Krugman is probably the foremost critic of the plan. He's called the plan and the people behind it "unserious." From a blog post penned at the end of September:

So, a public service reminder: Simpson-Bowles is terrible. It mucks around with taxes, but is obsessed with lowering marginal rates despite a complete absence of evidence that this is important. It offers nothing on Medicare that isn’t already in the Affordable Care Act. 


Hillary In Her Own E-Mail Admits to the fact SHE SHOULD NOT have a private blackberry… But did it anyway. Then later said she to the public she was allowed to … is this another example of a public position and a private position… why is it if George W Bush said this we would be calling him a liar?

We really must use the same metric on all candidates including Jull Stein, and Gary Johnson.

 *Hillary Clinton: “When I Got To The State Department, It Was Still Against The Rules To Let Most -- Or Let All Foreign Service Officers Have Access To A Blackberry.” *“I mean, let's face it, our government is woefully, woefully behind in all of its policies that affect the use of technology. When I got to the State Department, it was still against the rules to let most -- or let all Foreign Service Officers have access to a Blackberry. You couldn't have desktop computers when Colin Powell was there. Everything that you are taking advantage of, inventing and using, is still a generation or two behind when it comes to our government.” [Hillary Clinton Remarks at Nexenta, 8/28/14] 


This Statement in Her E-Mails shows how much she is in favor of the TTP, and still in favor of NAFTA (although she never mentioned it by name). But She did make a very much LIBERTIARIAN statement of her beliefs, for open trade, and free markets on a global scale.

Hillary Clinton Said Her Dream Is A Hemispheric Common Market, With Open Trade And Open Markets. *“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.” [05162013 Remarks to Banco Itau.doc, p. 28 


PLLEASE NOTE, the Lincoln referral was used to justify her positions, and not her just referring to the movie in an e-mail.


*Clinton: “But If Everybody's Watching, You Know, All Of The Back Room Discussions And The Deals, You Know, Then People Get A Little Nervous, To Say The Least. So, You Need Both A Public And A Private Position.”* CLINTON: You just have to sort of figure out how to -- getting back to that word, "balance" -- how to balance the public and the private efforts that are necessary to be successful, politically, and that's not just a comment about today. That, I think, has probably been true for all of our history, and if you saw the Spielberg movie, Lincoln, and how he was maneuvering and working to get the 13th Amendment passed, and he called one of my favorite predecessors, Secretary Seward, who had been the governor and senator from New York, ran against Lincoln for president, and he told Seward, I need your help to get this done. And Seward called some of his lobbyist friends who knew how to make a deal, and they just kept going at it. I mean, politics is like sausage being made. It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But if everybody's watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position. And finally, I think -- I believe in evidence-based decision making. I want to know what the facts are. I mean, it's like when you guys go into some kind of a deal, you know, are you going to do that development or not, are you going to do that renovation or not, you know, you look at the numbers. You try to figure out what's going to work and what's not going to work. [Clinton Speech For National Multi-Housing Council, 4/24/13] 



*Clinton Said Financial Reform “Really Has To Come From The Industry Itself.” *“Remember what Teddy Roosevelt did. Yes, he took on what he saw as the excesses in the economy, but he also stood against the excesses in politics. He didn't want to unleash a lot of nationalist, populistic reaction. He wanted to try to figure out how to get back into that balance that has served America so well over our entire nationhood. Today, there's more that can and should be done that really has to come from the industry itself, and how we can strengthen our economy, create more jobs at a time where that's increasingly challenging, to get back to Teddy Roosevelt's square deal. And I really believe that our country and all of you are up to that job.” [Clinton Remarks to Deutsche Bank, 10/7/14]



 *Clinton Said That Because Candidates Needed Money From Wall Street To Run For Office, People In New York Needed To Ask Tough Questions About The Economy Before Handing Over Campaign Contributions. *“Secondly, running for office in our country takes a lot of money, and candidates have to go out and raise it. New York is probably the leading site for contributions for fundraising for candidates on both sides of the aisle, and it's also our economic center. And there are a lot of people here who should ask some tough questions before handing over campaign contributions to people who were really playing chicken with our whole economy.” [Goldman Sachs AIMS Alternative Investments Symposium, 10/24/13] 

*Clinton: “It Would Be Very Difficult To Run For President Without Raising A Huge Amount Of Money And Without Having Other People Supporting You Because Your Opponent Will Have Their Supporters.”* “So our system is, in many ways, more difficult, certainly far more expensive and much longer than a parliamentary system, and I really admire the people who subject themselves to it. Even when I, you know, think they should not be elected president, I still think, well, you know, good for you I guess, you're out there promoting democracy and those crazy ideas of yours. So I think that it's something -- I would like -- you know, obviously as somebody who has been through it, I would like it not to last as long because I think it's very distracting from what we should be doing every day in our public business. I would like it not to be so expensive. I have no idea how you do that. I mean, in my campaign -- I lose track, but I think I raised $250 million or some such enormous amount, and in the last campaign President Obama raised 1.1 billion, and that was before the Super PACs and all of this other money just rushing in, and it's so ridiculous that we have this kind of free for all with all of this financial interest at stake, but, you know, the Supreme Court said that's basically what we're in for. So we're kind of in the wild west, and, you know, it would be very difficult to run for president without raising a huge amount of money and without having other people supporting you because your opponent will have their supporters. So I think as hard as it was when I ran, I think it's even harder now.” [Clinton Speech For General Electric’s Global Leadership Meeting – Boca Raton, FL, 1/6/14] 



*Clinton Said That Both The Democratic And Republican Parties Should Be “Moderate.” *“URSULA BURNS: Interesting. Democrats? SECRETARY CLINTON: Oh, long, definitely. URSULA BURNS: Republicans? SECRETARY CLINTON: Unfortunately, at the time, short. URSULA BURNS: Okay. We'll go back to questions. SECRETARY CLINTON: We need two parties. URSULA BURNS: Yeah, we do need two parties. SECRETARY CLINTON: Two sensible, moderate, pragmatic parties.” [Hillary Clinton Remarks, Remarks at Xerox, 3/18/14] 


Judge: Hillary Clinton Must Answer Written 

Questions in Email Suit



NOTE: U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, appointed by Bill Clinton in in 1984.


A federal judge in Washington, D.C. ruled Friday that Hillary Clinton must answer written questions from a group that filed a lawsuit over her private email server.

Lawyers for Judicial Watch, asked to interview her under oath as part of their Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department.

But Judge Emmet Sullivan said Friday that the group "has failed to demonstrate that it cannot obtain the discovery it seeks through other, less burdensome or intrusive means such as interrogatories."

He gave the group until October 14 to give her the questions, and she has 30 days to answer them.

If the group wants to ask her follow-up questions in writing, it must go back to the judge and get permission.

The group is seeking the details of Huma Abedin's relationship with the State Department that permitted her to do outside work while she was a top aide to Secretary Clinton.

Judicial Watch lawyers told the judge that only by interviewing Clinton under oath could they hope to learn why set up up a private e-mail server.

Clinton's lawyers argued that because so much has previously been disclosed — through her testimony to Congress, the report of the State Department's inspector general, and the findings of the FBI — there was no need to depose her about the email server her in order to learn the details of Huma Abedin's contract.

Judicial Watch insisted that none of those other inquiries delved into why a private server was used in the first place.

"Secretary Clinton has never testified under oath why she created and used the system to conduct official government business. Her only public statements on the issue are unsworn," the group's lawyers said in court filings.

In Friday's order, Judge Sullivan said her written testimony is necessary "to enable her to explain on the record the purpose for the creation and operation of the system for State Department Business."

Despite all of her statements and congressional testimony, the judge said, she still hasn't explained why she set up the server.

Judicial Watch said in a statement Friday it is pleased with the ruling. "We will move quickly to get these answers," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. "The decision is a reminder that Hillary Clinton is not above the law."

But Brian Fallon, spokesman for the Clinton campaign, said the Judicial Watch effort "is just another lawsuit intended to try to hurt Hillary Clinton's campaign, and so we are glad that the judge has accepted our offer to answer these questions in writing rather than grant Judicial Watch's request."


NOTE: U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, was appointed by Bill Clinton in in 1984.

In a related story.

Clinton Told FBI Colin Powell Recommended Private Email: Sources

Hillary Clinton told the FBI that former Secretary of State Colin Powell recommended on two occasions that she use a private email account for unclassified communication, sources told NBC News early Friday.

Powell never used his private email for classified communication nor recommended that Clinton should, the sources said. Powell only sent or received classified information from a desktop computer in his government office, they added.

Clinton has frequently made what critics describe as misleading comparisons between her use of a personal email account and Powell's.

When he took over the State Department in 2001, the agency did not have a computer system for unclassified email.

Powell, who is believed to be the first Secretary of State to use email, used an AOL email account. By the time Clinton took over the department in 2009, a comparable email system for unclassified messages was in place.

  07-25-2016      A Vote for Hillary only Rewards Hillary & the DNC for corruption and theft of the overwhelming people’s choice during the primaries.

Election Justice has already filed a lawsuit that will encompass the RECO Act bringing in all the other states nationally, showing that Bernie Sanders actually won more votes than Hillary. Fractional voting (as uncovered by Bev Harris of was used on the electronic voting machines, Voter purges on predominately Bernie Supporters.

WikiLeaks E-Mail from Hillary and the WikiLeaks DNC E-mails Proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the DNC and Hillary actually worked with the media to marginalize Bernie Sanders and Undermine Bernie Sanders Bid for President.

The DNC was to remain impartial and not choose sides… NOT actively lie about one candidate while supporting another, then continually attack Bernie Supporters and claim that Bernie Supporters attacked Hillary.

I Will NOT Reward Corrupt, Contemptible Behavior With My Vote For Hillary.

If Bernie Sanders Is not Vindicated for the Corruption of the DNC and Hillary

 Clinton with his nonamanition of Democratic Convention.

I Will instead Vote For,

Jill Stein

If Jill Stein does not win it will NOT be because of ME and MILLIONS of others who chose to support Jill Stein... It will be because Millions of others choose to reward corruption and expected to somehow be rewarded with honesty, fairness, Justice, and integrity.

It has never happened in the past and it will not happen now!

If Hillary wins or Donald Trump, Enjoy the COOL AID, You will need to be drinking a lot more of it, over the next four years or longer, as the world slides into the next Great Depression.


  07-18-2016  Third-Party Presidential Debate: Gary Johnson vs Jill Stein in 2012

It shows the glaring differences between the two candidates.

Gary Johnson although a Libertarian candidate he sound like a 1980’s

Ronald Reagan &, Newt Gingrich Republican, calling for 0 corporate taxes,

He is in favor of corporate controlled internet.

He also supports more Austerity

Austerity is what is now bringing down Greece, the UK, and the Eurozone.

Gary Johnson was also a lifelong registered Republican up till 2012

Johnson spent $500,000 of his own money and entered the race with the intent of bringing a "common sense business approach" to the office of Governor.

Now mind you that is $500,000 in 1994 dollars that would be $805,000 in today’s dollars.

While Jill Stein is sounding more like Bernie Sanders 4 years later in 2015

it appears that Jill Stein was talking the Ideas of  "Bernie Sanders" before Bernie Sanders.

If all Bernie Sanders supporters, now were to support Jill Stein we can still WIN the movement that Bernie Sanders talked about on his campaign,

And more!!!


  07-12-2016     There is NO WRITE-IN for Bernie Sanders Anymore...

It is now time for all Trump Haters and Hillary Haters 


Vote for Jill Stein.

The Lesser of Two Evil's is Still Evil.

Reject The Lesser Evil.

Fight For The Greater Good!

Vote for Jill Stein.

If half of the Republicans hate Trump and more than half of the Democrats hate Hillary...

Then if they all voted for Jill Stein both Trump and Hillary loose, and we the people finally win.

Oh we also get a Creditable First Women President.

If Trump becomes President It will not be because we voted for Bernie…I think it is because of those that voted for Hillary.

If Trump becomes President it will not be because “We” did not vote for Hillary… I would rather think of it as… because “They” did not vote for Bernie.

By telling people to vote for Hillary if she is the candidate is no better than When we condemned the Republicans for voting for Bush.



According to several reports the Hillary Clinton Campaign cheated in order to give her the win in Kentucky

The Pike County Clerk’s office told local Kentucky station WKYT there were issues with one of their card readers which caused a delay in the numbers and as a result, the AP then erased Sanders’ votes, pushing Hillary to the lead by over 4,000 votes.

It showes that Hillary was and still is lying. The rules were different when C.Powell and C. Rice was in office, what was allowed then was not allowed when she was in office.

She never turn over all the clasified e-mails till questioned monts later.

Failure to Follow Department Separation Processes

Failure To Notify NARA of Loss of Records



The Department Has Issued Numerous Warnings About Cybersecurity Risks

One of the primary reasons that Department policy requires the use of Department systems is to guard against cybersecurity incidents


In August 2011, the Executive Secretary, the Under Secretary for Management, and Secretary Clinton’s Chief of Staff and Deputy Chief of Staff, in response to the Secretary’s request, discussed via email providing her with a Department BlackBerry to replace her personal BlackBerry, which was malfunctioning, possibly because “her personal email server is down.” The then Executive Secretary informed staff of his intent to provide two devices for the Secretary to use: “one with an operating State Department email account (which would mask her identity, but which would also be subject to FOIA requests), and another which would just have phone and internet capability.” In another email exchange, the Director of S/ES-IRM noted that an email account and address had already been set up for the Secretary and also stated that “you should be aware that any email would go through the Department’s infrastructure and subject to FOIA searches.” However, the Secretary’s Deputy Chief of Staff rejected the proposal to use two devices stating that it “doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.”

OIG found no evidence that the Secretary obtained a Department address or device after this discussion .


In another incident occurring on May 13, 2011, two of Secretary Clinton’s immediate staff discussed via email the Secretary’s concern that someone was “hacking into her email” after she received an email with a suspicious link. Several hours later, Secretary Clinton received an email from the personal account of then-Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs that also had a link to a suspect website. The next morning, Secretary Clinton replied to the email with the following message to the Under Secretary: “Is this really from you? I was worried about opening it!”

Department policy requires employees to report cybersecurity incidents to IRM security officials when any improper cyber-security practice comes to their attention. 12 FAM 592.4 (January 10, 2007). Notification is required when a user suspects compromise of, among other things, a personally owned device containing personally identifiable information. 12 FAM 682.26 (August 4, 2008).

 However, OIG found no evidence that the Secretary or her staff reported these incidents to computer security personnel or anyone else within the Department.

Whistleblower, Leaked Panama papers now show Trump and Clinton's use Delaware tax 'loophole' Address

For Those of you Questioning Sources of Information.

Whistleblower, Leaked Panama papers now show Trump and Clinton's use Delaware tax 'loophole' Address

05-14-2016     Whistleblower, Leaked Panama papers now show Trump and Clinton's use Delaware tax 'loophole' Address


Link to Daily Kos Posting If you want to see comments

Trump and Clinton share Delaware tax 'loophole' address with 285,000 firms

1209 North Orange Street in Wilmington is a nondescript two-storey building yet is home to Apple, American Airlines, Wal-Mart and presidential candidates

Clinton, who has repeatedly promised that as president she will crack down on “outrageous tax havens and loopholes that super-rich people across the world are exploiting in Panama and elsewhere”, collected more than $16m in public speaking fees and book royalties in 2014 through the doors of 1209, according to the Clintons’ tax return.

Just eight days after stepping down as secretary of state in February 2013, Clinton registered ZFS Holdings LLC at CTC’s offices. Bill Clinton set up WJC LLC, a vehicle to collect his consultation fees, at the same address in 2008.

In the US presidential election, Clinton’s rival Bernie Sanders has led the charge to counter corporate greed, and highlighted the tax havens revealed by the Panama Papers as evidence that “the wealthiest people and largest corporations must start paying their fair share of taxes”.

Clinton has called offshore tax havens “a perversion” of the legal code, and Obama called for reform of the international system earlier this month

But it turns out that the Democratic presidential front-runner and her husband have multiple connections with people named in the papers — including staffers and major donors


Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, has ties to Russia’s Sberbank, which has been implicated in the “Panama Papers” tax-avoidance scandal.

A report parsing through what is currently known to be included in the Mossack Fonseca data leak about Russian corporations found that Podesta’s eponymous Podesta Group lobbying firm took on Sberbank as a client only a month ago. John Podesta’s brother Anthony, who bundles campaign donations for Clinton, is listed as the lobbyist for the Sberbank account.

Hillary Clinton recently blasted the hidden financial dealings exposed in the Panama Papers, but she and her husband have multiple connections with people who have used the besieged law firm Mossack Fonseca to establish offshore entities.

Among them are Gabrielle Fialkoff, finance director for Hillary Clinton’s first campaign for the U.S. Senate; Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining magnate who has traveled the globe with Bill Clinton; the Chagoury family, which pledged $1 billion in projects to the Clinton Global Initiative; and Chinese billionaire Ng Lap Seng, who was at the center of a Democratic fund-raising scandal when Bill Clinton was president. Also using the Panamanian law firm was the company founded by the late billionaire investor Marc Rich, an international fugitive when Bill Clinton pardoned him in the final hours of his presidency.

Update From The Nation 05-14-2016

When It Comes to Taxes, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Have 1 Thing in Common

Tax avoidance by the wealthiest Americans—including the presidential front-runners—costs the US government an additional $130 billion per year.

By Nomi Prins

From The Nation As the full story link hear and listed in the Update link above

Hillary has gone after tax havens before. In 2004, as a New York senator, she vowed to close tax loopholes for “people who create a mailbox, or a drop, or send one person to sit on the beach in some island paradise and claim that it is their offshore headquarters.” She introduced no bills to do so, however.

She has spoken out against corporate tax inversions, too. She wants Congress to prevent them by imposing what she calls a “commonsense 50%” threshold on them; in other words, as long as a company keeps at least half of its operations in this country, it would be considered a US company for tax purposes, no matter the inversions. She also has favored an “exit tax” to ensure that multinationals pay a “fair” share of US taxes owed on earnings stored overseas. Both of these suggestions would put some modest limits on offshore tax dodging (after the fact), but not come within a country mile of banning it.

On such subjects, she can sound strong indeed at appropriate moments. In February 2016, for instance, she said, “We need to go after a company like Johnson Controls that is trying to avoid paying taxes after all of us bailed it out by pretending to sell itself in a so-called inversion in Europe.” It evidently didn’t matter to her that the same automotive parts company set to merge with Tyco International (based in Ireland to dodge taxes) had donated money to the Clinton Foundation charity as recently as December 2015. (Johnson Controls denied Hillary’s claims that it had received a bailout during the financial crisis.)

Hillary, lest we forget, joined the board of directors of the the Clinton Foundation, the family charity, in 2013. She resigned in April 2015 to run for president. Now, keeping it in the family, her husband, Bill, and her daughter, Chelsea, remain standing members of the board. Spawned from the William J. Clinton Foundation, founded in 1997, the charity has raised $2 billion, has about 2,000 employees (including at times members of Hillary’s political team), and boasts an annual budget of $223 million.

Like many gilt-edged couples, Hillary and Bill Clinton have themselves utilized onshore and offshore tax loopholes. In 2010, they used a common tax-dodging technique by placing their multimillion-dollar home in Chappaqua, New York, in a “residence trust.” After he left office, Bill spent five years as an “adviser” to billionaire (now ex-pal) Ron Burkle’s investment fund, Yucaipa Global, which had funds registered in the Cayman Islands and Dubai. That alliance netted Bill at least $15 million.

Hillary’s bedrock thinking on money flowing out of the US and into the offshore world can best be seen in her support for the 2012 US-Panama Trade Promotion Agreement when she was secretary of state. The agreement removed “barriers to US services, including financial services,” which actually simplified the process of squirreling money away in or through Panama by allowing it to flow freely into that country.

The Clinton Foundation inhales donations from people using tax havens (including Panama). Although Hillary denounced Mossack Fonseca’s dealings on cue after the Panama Papers story broke, a number of individuals and multinationals that have contributed to the foundation used MF to establish offshore accounts, according to McClatchy. These include Canadian mining billionaire Frank Giustra who features in the foundation’s $25 million top-tier donor bracket, and two firms tied to Ng Lap Seng, the Chinese billionaire implicated in a major donor scandal involving the Clintons and the Democratic National Committee.

Similarly, in a speech she gave at the New School in July 2015, Hillary highlighted the “criminal behavior” of global bank HSBC. In 2012, the behemoth financial institution agreed to a record $1.92 billion settlement with the Department of Justice and the Treasury Department for enabling drug cartel money laundering and violating US sanctions by conducting transactions for customers in Iran, Libya, Sudan, and Burma. She vowed, “On my watch, it will change.”

Yet, in 2014, the Clinton Foundation accepted between $500,000 and $1 million from that bank.

The Panama Papers are but one conflicted instance in which Hillary’s stated beliefs, her actions, and the generosity of her friends and acquaintances came together in a contradictory fashion. The evidence suggests that tax dodgers will, in fact, be able to breathe a sigh of relief if she becomes president. Her actions are likely to—if you’ll excuse the expression—trump her words when it comes to curtailing the behavior of offshore scofflaws in significant ways.

"Was Hillary Clinton Talking to Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, &

 Whistleblowers when she said ..."


Was Hillary Clinton Talking to Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, &

 Whistleblowers when she said ...

To start The Definition of the term:

From The Urban Dictionary

Going of the reservation is when certain elements such as spies or assassins either fail to complete an assignment/mission, go on an unauthorized mission, get caught and spill their guts, or go rogue. Usually resulting in the need to neutralize (kill their ass) the said element

Another Definition:

A term sometimes used when a made man in the mafia kills another made man without the permission of his superiors.

A term sometimes used when agents in a spy agency, such as the CIA, go on unauthorized assignments.

And From another source:

To go or act outside the bounds of control, propriety, or acceptance of a given group. The phrase refers to the forced relocation of Native Americans to Indian reservations in the United States. Because of this origin, the phrase can be considered offensive or inappropriate

And one more:

To think or act differently or contrary to the accepted norm.

I first became familiar with this term when used in Military and espionage usage.

It is not secret at how upset Hillary Clinton was at Edward Snowden and Julian Assange both of whom were exposing the un-constitutional use of spying on All American citizens as well as other countries heads of state and their citizens.

As Secretary of State, Hillary would have most certainly knew just what they were doing, and at that time Hillary Clinton also had a private server in her private residence, of which she had used it to send over 2,000 classified documents, bypassing the governments surveillance of all correspondences. If it was as Hillary Clinton explained that it was for personal e-mail to her husband Bill Clinton only…How did 2,000 secret security documents get there, and not just that, why was none of those documents ever sent to the appropriate government offices that they should have been routed to in the first place?

I am just asking the question was Hillary’s comment actually directed at people like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange, and other potential whistleblower’s, as a warning, to Shut Up.

In almost every state there have been some sort of problems with primarily the Democratic voters droped from the rolls at the last minute, vote flipping, when checking the machiene tallies to the reported votes. there are numerous actual videos on YouTube of the actual BOE meetings and how the people (whistleblower’s) are either benign patronized or told (Politely and not so politely) that they are wrong, and that they did not see what they saw.

The thing is if so many people are coming forward, now in the thousands sooner or later, someone who is causing this change in votes is likely to come forward, and that is something that Hillary Clinton cannot afford to happen, because even if she is not involved it will most assuredly destroy her bid for the presidency.

 So hence the Blanket warnings to everyone that may know something to shut up, because after all look at what happened to Edward Snowden and Julian Assange,

And then look at what happened to Chelsea (Bradley) Manning who downloaded a trove of military and diplomatic information, including over 500,000 army reports and classified combat videos, to WikiLeaks. One of these videos, a recording of a U.S. Apache helicopter opening fire on a group of civilians in Eastern Baghdad, has over 13 million views on YouTube

And Aaron Swartz, a 26-year-old computer prodigy and Internet activist… Swartz was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment, where he had hanged himself

It is no secret that Hillary Clinton has no respect for anyone of these people, Hillary Clinton wants them all in prison or worse. Just do a search and you will not lack of information, on how little she cares for the fact that they exposed clear and blatant violations of the Constitution, but rather implies that the ends justifies the means… Even at the expense of the Constitution, buy condemning these people and not the fact of what our Government is doing… is wrong.

George W Bush may have said about the construction “that it is a damn piece of paper”…but Hillary Clinton actions shows that she actually believes that statement.

With all the said, and in view of the most acceptable usage of the term “Off the reservation” this comment does not fit the aim at Donald Trump’s direction.

So I am just asking Was that a warning to anyone who knows anything about missing votes, missing voters, missing campaign funds, missing speeches…  

To keep your mouth shut.

UPDATE 05-13-2016 10:PM

The Leaked (Whistleblower) Panama papers now shows that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Share Shell Corporation Address in Delaware

Trump and Clinton share Delaware tax 'loophole' address with 285,000 firms

1209 North Orange Street in Wilmington is a nondescript two-storey building yet is home to Apple, American Airlines, Wal-Mart and presidential candidates

Clinton, who has repeatedly promised that as president she will crack down on “outrageous tax havens and loopholes that super-rich people across the world are exploiting in Panama and elsewhere”, collected more than $16m in public speaking fees and book royalties in 2014 through the doors of 1209, according to the Clintons’ tax return.

Just eight days after stepping down as secretary of state in February 2013, Clinton registered ZFS Holdings LLC at CTC’s offices. Bill Clinton set up WJC LLC, a vehicle to collect his consultation fees, at the same address in 2008.

In the US presidential election, Clinton’s rival Bernie Sanders has led the charge to counter corporate greed, and highlighted the tax havens revealed by the Panama Papers as evidence that “the wealthiest people and largest corporations must start paying their fair share of taxes”.

Clinton has called offshore tax havens “a perversion” of the legal code, and Obama called for reform of the international system earlier this month


But it turns out that the Democratic presidential front-runner and her husband have multiple connections with people named in the papers — including staffers and major donors.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, has ties to Russia’s Sberbank, which has been implicated in the “Panama Papers” tax-avoidance scandal.


A report parsing through what is currently known to be included in the Mossack Fonseca data leak about Russian corporations found that Podesta’s eponymous Podesta Group lobbying firm took on Sberbank as a client only a month ago. John Podesta’s brother Anthony, who bundles campaign donations for Clinton, is listed as the lobbyist for the Sberbank account.

Hillary Clinton recently blasted the hidden financial dealings exposed in the Panama Papers, but she and her husband have multiple connections with people who have used the besieged law firm Mossack Fonseca to establish offshore entities.

Among them are Gabrielle Fialkoff, finance director for Hillary Clinton’s first campaign for the U.S. Senate; Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining magnate who has traveled the globe with Bill Clinton; the Chagoury family, which pledged $1 billion in projects to the Clinton Global Initiative; and Chinese billionaire Ng Lap Seng, who was at the center of a Democratic fund-raising scandal when Bill Clinton was president. Also using the Panamanian law firm was the company founded by the late billionaire investor Marc Rich, an international fugitive when Bill Clinton pardoned him in the final hours of his presidency.



Remembering Michael Ratner, Pioneering Lawyer Who Fought for Justice

 from Attica to Guantánamo


The groundbreaking human rights attorney Michael Ratner has died at the age of 72. For over four decades, he defended, investigated and spoke up for victims of human rights abuses across the world. Ratner served as the longtime president of the Center for Constitutional Rights. In 2002, the center brought the first case against the George W. Bush administration for the indefinite detention of prisoners at Guantánamo. The Supreme Court eventually sided with the center in a landmark 2008 decision when it struck down the law that stripped Guantánamo prisoners of their habeas corpus rights. Ratner began working on Guantánamo in the 1990s, when he fought the first Bush administration’s use of the military base to house Haitian refugees. We begin today’s show with a speech he gave in 2007 when he was awarded the Puffin/Nation Prize for Creative Citizenship.



This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.

JUAN GONZÁLEZ: The trailblazing human rights attorney Michael Ratner has died at the age of 72. For over four decades, Michael Ratner defended, investigated and spoke up for victims of human rights abuses across the world. He served as the longtime head of the Center for Constitutional Rights. Attorney David Cole told The New York Times, quote, "Under his leadership, the center grew from a small but scrappy civil rights organization into one of the leading human rights organizations in the world. He sued some of the most powerful people in the world on behalf of some of the least powerful." In 2002, the center brought the first case against the George W. Bush administration for the indefinite detention of prisoners at Guantánamo. The Supreme Court eventually sided with the center in a landmark 2008 decision when it struck down the law that stripped Guantánamo prisoners of their habeas corpus rights. Ratner began working on Guantánamo in the 1990s, when he fought the first Bush administration’s use of the military base to house Haitian refugees.

Michael Ratner’s activism and human rights work dated back to the 1960s. He was a student at Columbia Law School during the 1968 student strike there. Michael was a clerk for the legendary Federal Judge Constance Baker Motley. When he graduated from law school, she was the first African-American woman judge and protégé of Thurgood Marshall. In a 2004 letter, Constance Baker Motley wrote, "Michael Ratner was in retrospect, the ablest law clerk I have had in my tenure on the bench."

AMY GOODMAN: Michael Ratner joined the Center for Constitutional Rights in 1971. His first case centered on a lawsuit filed on behalf of prisoners killed and injured in the Attica prison uprising in upstate New York. Michael Ratner was deeply involved in Latin America and the Caribbean, challenging U.S. policy in Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Puerto Rico and elsewhere. In 1981, he brought the first challenge under the War Powers Resolution to the use of troops in El Salvador, as well as a suit against U.S. officials on behalf of Nicaraguans raped, murdered and tortured by U.S.-backed contras. In 1991, he led the center’s challenge to the authority of President George H.W. Bush to go to war against Iraq without congressional consent.

A decade later, he would become a leading critic of the George W. Bush administration, filing lawsuits related to Guantánamo, torture, domestic surveillance and the 2003 invasion of Iraq. He also helped launch the group Palestine Legal to defend the rights of protesters in the U.S. calling for Palestinian human rights. In recent years, he was the chief attorney for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and became a leading critic of the U.S. crackdown on whistleblowers, including Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden. He also served as Democracy Now!’s attorney for many years and was the husband of Karen Ranucci, a longtime member of the Democracy Now! family.

Today we spend the hour looking at the life and legacy of Michael Ratner. Later, we’ll be joined by three lawyers who worked closely with Michael over the years, but we begin with a speech Michael Ratner gave in 2007, when he was awarded the Puffin/Nation Prize for Creative Citizenship.

MICHAEL RATNER: Over the last few years, I’ve become acquainted with a man named Henri Alleg. Henri Alleg is a French Algerian in his eighties who was water-tortured—or, as this administration says, waterboarded—by the French. Here is how Henri Alleg described his water torture, a practice that goes back to the Inquisition: "The rag was soaked rapidly. Water flowed everywhere: in my mouth, in my nose, all over my face. ... I tried, by contracting my throat, to take in as little water as possible and to resist suffocation by keeping air in my lungs ... as long as I could. But I couldn’t hold on for more than a few [moments]. I had the impression of drowning, and a terrible agony, that of death itself, took possession of me."

Think about Henri Alleg when you hear the CIA talk about enhanced interrogation techniques. Or think about a terrible agony, that of death itself—that of death itself—taking over you when you hear our new attorney general refuse to condemn waterboarding, or when you hear that some of our Democratic leaders were briefed and made not a peep—not a peep—of objection.

Let there be no doubt, the Bush administration tortures. It disappears people. It holds people forever in offshore penal colonies like Guantánamo. It renders them to be tortured in other countries. This is what was done to CCR’s client Maher Arar, who was rendered to Syria for torture. And sadly, a majority of our Congress, our courts and our media have given Bush a free hand—and, in fact, worse, have been the handmaidens of the torture and detention program. But it has not been given a free hand by the Center for Constitutional Rights. It has not been given a free hand by The Nation. It has not been given a free hand by Jeremy or Naomi.

Today we’re in the midst of a pitched battle, a pitched rattled to put this country back, at least ostensibly, on the page of fundamental rights and moral decency. The battle is difficult, and the road is long and hard. On occasion, I get pessimistic. Sometimes I and my colleagues feel like Sisyphus. Twice—not just once, twice—we pushed the rock up the hill and won rights for Guantánamo detainees in the Supreme Court, and twice the rock was rolled back down by Congress over those rights. So we pushed it back up again. Five days ago, we were in the Supreme Court for the third time. It was difficult, more difficult than before, because the justices have changed. Four are antediluvians, lost forever to humanity.

But before I get us all depressed, we’ve had our victories. We’ve gotten lawyers to Guantánamo, stopped the most overt torture and freed half of the Guantánamo detainees—over 300. We have gotten Maher Arar out of Syria. Canada has apologized for his torture, given him a substantial recovery—in Canadian dollars, which is no embarrassment anymore. They said he was an innocent man, but he remains on the U.S. terror list. We have slowed, but not yet stopped, a remarkable grab for authoritarian power.

I also don’t look hope—I also don’t lose hope, because I think about the early days of Guantánamo. At first, we were few. But now, we are many. At first, when CCR began, we were the lonely warriors taking on the Bush administration at Guantánamo. Now we are many. Now we, just on Guantánamo alone, are over 600 lawyers, most from major firms of every political stripe. These lawyers have an understanding of what is at stake: liberty itself. This struggle—this struggle will be seen as one of the great chapters in the legal and political history of the United States.

Today, war, torture, disappearances, murder surround us like plagues. Most in this country go on their way oblivious. Some don’t want to know and are like ostriches. Some want to justify it all. Some want to make compromises. But be warned: We are at a tipping point, a tipping point into lawlessness and medievalism. We have our work to do. For each of us, the time for talking is long, long over. This is no time for compromise, no time for political calculation. As Howard Zinn admonishes us, it is the job of thinking people not to be on the side of the executioners. The Puffin/Nation Prize reminds us all that the job for each of us is not to be on the side of the executioners. Thank you all.

AMY GOODMAN: Attorney Michael Ratner, speaking in 2007 when he was awarded the Puffin/Nation Prize for Creative Citizenship. Michael died Wednesday at the age of 72 as a result of complications related to cancer. When we come back, we’ll be joined by a roundtable of his colleagues and friends, beginning with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who will speak to us from inside the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. This is Democracy Now!,, The War and Peace Report. We’ll be back in a minute.

His words from 2002 about the United States and the so-called "war on terror" were particularly prescient:

 “A permanent war abroad means permanent anger against the United States by those countries and people that will be devastated by U.S. military actions. Hate will increase, not lessen; and the terrible consequences of that hate will be used, in turn, as justification for more restrictions on civil liberties in the United States.”

He did leave us not just with a powerful legacy but a lesson: Never stop fighting.



State Party Officials Reportedly Displeased with Clinton-DNC 'Laundering' Scheme

Sanders campaign lambastes Clinton for 'looting funds meant for the state parties to skirt fundraising limits on her presidential campaign.'

Hillary Clinton's use of a so-called joint fundraising committee, through which her presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and 32 state party committees can solicit big-money donors, is under fire not just from rival Bernie Sanders, but also from state party officials and their allies, according to reporting by Politico.

Politico's deep dive into the latest Federal Election Commission filings, published Monday, shows that the Hillary Victory Fund "has transferred $3.8 million to the state parties, but almost all of that cash ($3.3 million, or 88 percent) was quickly transferred to the DNC, usually within a day or two, by the Clinton staffer who controls the committee."

The analysis continues:

By contrast, the victory fund has transferred $15.4 million to Clinton’s campaign and $5.7 million to the DNC, which will work closely with Clinton’s campaign if and when she becomes the party’s nominee. And most of the $23.3 million spent directly by the victory fund has gone towards expenses that appear to have directly benefited Clinton’s campaign, including $2.8 million for “salary and overhead” and $8.6 million for web advertising that mostly looks indistinguishable from Clinton campaign ads and that has helped Clinton build a network of small donors who will be critical in a general election expected to cost each side well in excess of $1 billion.

Unsurprisingly the arrangement is ruffling more than a few feathers, notably "among some participating state party officials and their allies," according to Politico reporters Kenneth P. Vogel and Isaac Arnsdorf. "They grumble privately that Clinton is merely using them to subsidize her own operation, while her allies overstate her support for their parties and knock Sanders for not doing enough to help the party."

Indeed, an official with one participating state party—who asked to remain anonymous "for fear of drawing the ire of the DNC and the Clinton campaign"—told Politico: "It's a one-sided benefit."

What's more, multiple sources told Politico that the DNC has in fact "advised state party officials on how to answer media inquiries about the arrangement."

"The DNC has given us some guidance on what they're saying, but it's not clear what we should be saying," said the anonymous official. "I don’t think anyone wants to get crosswise with the national party because we do need their resources. But everyone who entered into these agreements was doing it because they were asked to, not because there are immediately clear benefits."

The Sanders campaign sent an open letter last month to DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, decrying how the fundraising arrangement had been exploited in Clinton's favor.

On Monday, citing the new reporting by Politico, campaign manager Jeff Weaver doubled down on that critique, lambasting the Clinton campaign for "looting funds meant for the state parties to skirt fundraising limits on her presidential campaign."

"Secretary Clinton has exploited the rules in ways that let her high-dollar donors like Alice Walton of Wal-Mart fame and the actor George Clooney and his super-rich Hollywood friends skirt legal limits on campaign contributions," Weaver said. "If Secretary Clinton can't raise the funds needed to run in a competitive primary without resorting to laundering, how will she compete against Donald Trump in a general election?"




 Is It Time For Hillary Clinton To Step Aside For The Good Of The Democratic Party?

Especially in view of my previous story on  04-20-2016 After All. 3.2 Million New Yorkers Lost Their Voting Rights. A MUST Read previous story on 04-22-2016  Actual Chicago Election Board Meeting 2016-04-05 Showing It should be 56.7% for Bernie 18.4% Swingand watch the of video of Chicago board meating and the head of the BOE told the auditors to change the vote tally of the paper taps to match the reported vote. They are admitting fraud, but say it was only to test the machines and the total on the paper record needed to be adjusted to match the reported vote and it in no way means that the voting machines were wrong.

Now Let Me Get This Straight, the only job of a voting machine is to record and count the votes, but somehow if the actual paper tally does not match the reported tally the voting machine is counting it wrong not to worry it was only to check the machines.

Is it me or what, the machines are wrong just after the vote, but not to worry it is not an audit of the vote, it was an audit of the machines...and even if they are wrong at counting...I don't get it...I find Quantum Physics much easier to understand than this statement.

Then  this story I did on 04-23-2016 from Decmocry Now Could the 2016 Election Be Stolen with Help from Electronic Voting Machines?

More Video's from Easthampton NY, Actual Poll workers saying something was very wrong. The Police told the poll workers it's not your job to tell anyone about their choice of going to a judge in Riverhead to get a court order to restor their voting rights, or to use a provisional ballot. Riverhead is about a 50 mile round trip on mostly single lane roads, if you check a Satellite map program. She was told byt the BOE that she should tell the voters of their options.

Massechussets has some laws about campaigning near polling centers. It turns out Bill Clinton may have violated them. A lot. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. TYT Video 

Clintons campaign outside polling place - NY April 19, 2016

Bill Clinton and others were pushing the crowd to vote for Hillary Clinton much closer to the Buttonwood Park Warmer Center, which is a polling station for Ward 5E and 5F. The entrance to the warming center


And now This...

If The Democrats truly want to win this November, Hillary is losing to Trump and her poll numbers against Trump continue to go down as Bernie's continue to go up.

When you think about it, even this polls shows the disconnect between the Person that they want to go against Trump and the person that keeps winning voter counts under a cloud of suspicions of vote shifting.

If The Democratic Party really wants to win, why would you put up a known flawed candidate that is losing against her perceived opponent in Trump? Then isn't it time for Hillary Clinton to do the right thing and to step aside for the good of not just the party... but the nation.

Sanders Still Strongest Candidate as New Poll Shows Trump and Clinton in Near-Tie

Published on Monday, April 25, 2016 by Common Dreams by Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Sanders continues to trounce Trump by double digits, 51 to 40 percent, according to the George Washington University survey

Though the media and political establishment have all but declared Hillary Clinton the official Democratic presidential candidate, new polling on Monday shows that Bernie Sanders continues to fare significantly better when matched against Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.

According to the latest George Washington (GW) University Battleground Poll, Clinton's lead over Trump has shrunk to 3 percentage points, with her besting the billionaire developer by just 46 to 43 percent nationally. What's more, the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

The RealClearPolitics average has the former secretary of state with a slightly higher lead (8.5 percent) over Trump.

Meanwhile, Sanders continues to trounce Trump by double digits: 51 to 40 percent in the GW poll, and 53 to 37.8 percent, according to RealClearPolitics.

Sanders' overall electability has dogged Clinton, the presumptive nominee, throughout the primary. Time after time, national polls have showed Sanders beating Trump by a larger margin than Clinton.

In an interview with NBC News late last week, the Vermont senator spoke to this trend.

"I think there are a lot of Democrats out there who are scared to death—as I am—about the possibility of a Trump presidency," Sanders said. "And the Democrats, by and large, want to see the strongest candidate possible to take on and defeat Trump or some other Republican. At this point, according to virtually all of the polls, that candidate is me."

The GW poll on Monday also found that Sanders and Republican candidate John Kasich are the only major party candidates who still are viewed favorably by the majority of the American public, holding respective "unfavorability" ratings of 44 and 29 percent.

The survey shows that "the other three—former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (56 percent), Texas Senator Ted Cruz (55 percent) and businessman Donald Trump (65 percent)—are all mostly disliked."

The poll, which surveyed 1,000 registered likely voters nationwide April 17-20, comes one day ahead of key Democratic primaries in Maryland, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Delaware.

Why WILLIAM K. BLACK Joining The Bernie Sanders Team is Important.

 He's Jailed The Banksters Before!

William K. Black Bio:

Associate Professor of Economics and Law, UMKC Distinguished Scholar in Residence for Financial Regulation, U. Minn. Law
Founding Member of pro bono, Bank Whistleblowers United that seeks to restore the rule of law to Wall Street
Former financial regulator
White-collar criminologist
Serial whistleblower
The regulator Charles Keating, the "Keating Five" and Speaker of the House Jim Wright most hated. William K Black authored of the book, The Best Way To Rob a Bank is to Own One

Sanders has numerously times directly denounces bank fraud and his intentions to break up big banks – last year he introduced legislation, that has stalled in the congress.

From William K. Black’s blog he says, “The toughest criticism Hillary could muster in a debate with Bernie… was to claim that she once told [Wall Street] to stop their ‘shenanigans’ (childish pranks). It is so hard to bite the hand that feeds you.”

This did not work for the civil rights movement when Richard Nixon said “I would call the leaders of business together at the Whitehouse and have a talk with them”...I don’t think it will work now.

In a article in Real Money

…Clinton… said she would break up the big banks if they continued to receive failing grades from regulators in Washington over living wills they have to produce explaining how they would unwind themselves in bankruptcy without wreaking havoc.”

Clinton's comments came after top federal regulators on Wednesday gave failing grades to five of the largest U.S. financial institutions for their post-crisis "living wills" designed to explain how they would unwind themselves in bankruptcy without wreaking havoc on the markets.


William K. Black’s has often succeeded, at stopping Wall Street fraud; He developed the concept of “control fraud”

William K. Black has a track record of going after the big banks for decades, since the Savings and Loan crisis During the Reagan administration in of 1980’s when around 1,000 Banksters went to jail.

Excerpt from Barons

The Lessons of the Savings-and-Loan Crisis

William K. Black, Associate Professor, Economics and Law, University of Missouri, Kansas City

On the 2007 Banking crisis

We have failed bankers giving advice to failed regulators on how to deal with failed assets. How can it result in anything but failure? If they are going to get any truthful investigation, the Democrats picked the wrong financial team. Tim Geithner, the current Secretary of the Treasury, and Larry Summers, chairman of the National Economic Council, were important architects of the problems. Geithner especially represents a failed regulator, having presided over the bailouts of major New York banks.

So you aren't a fan of the recently announced plan for the government to back private purchases of the toxic assets?

It is worse than a lie. Geithner has appropriated the language of his critics and of the forthright to support dishonesty. That is what's so appalling -- numbering himself among those who convey tough medicine when he is really pandering to the interests of a select group of banks who are on a first-name basis with Washington politicians.

There is a lot more to this interview at the link above.

William K. Black went after Charles Keating’s Lincoln Savings and Loan, exposing the five U.S. Senators (dubbed the “Keating 5”) who helped Keating

From the The New York Times on Keating, after he died, a man who, came to symbolize the $150 billion savings-and-loan crisis a generation ago after fleecing thousands of depositors with regulatory help from a group of United States senators.”

William K. Black’s investigation of, Keating lead to his arrest, prosecution and jailed for Securities fraud.

William K. Black is continuously saying that Clinton is wrong for America and that the errors of her ways are all related. Wall Street bank fraud ties right in with shady campaign finance dealings, and Black puts Clinton’s involvement at the heart of it.

“Hillary Clinton vigorously supported the Clinton and Gore administration’s war against effective financial regulation. Why? Anti-regulatory ideology and political contributions from Wall Street come to overlap. That is one of the most effective means by which campaign contributions corrupt the system.“

If you want the Banksters to Pay for their crimes we need to Elect Bernie Sanders, He started the saying

“If They Are Too Big To Fail...Then They Are Too Big To Exist”!

”Now he has a proven Person on his team that has cleaned up the Banksters mess before and made the Banksters pay for their crimes.

Could the 2016 Election Be Stolen with Help from Electronic Voting Machines?


Democracy Now! is a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program hosted by journalists Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez.

From One of the Most Respected Sources in News

Democracy Now! is a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program hosted by journalists Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez.

A short interview with HARVEY WASSERMAN.

This is a 10 minute video of that interview.


This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.

AMY GOODMAN: We’re in Westerville, Ohio, just outside Columbus. We’re at Otterbein University, where I’ll be teaching some classes today, or, let’s say, talking with students. We’re at OTV, which is Otterbein Television. And, Harvey Wasserman, I wanted to talk to you now about voting machines—


AMY GOODMAN: —and your concern over the years that electronic voting could be used to steal elections. Are you still concerned about this?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: Well, electronic voting was used to steal the presidential election right here in Ohio in 2004. John Kerry was the rightful winner in 2004 over George W. Bush. The secretary of state at the time, J. Kenneth Blackwell, and the governor, Robert Taft, used their power of electronic vote count to flip the vote to George W. Bush from John Kerry.

AMY GOODMAN: How do you know this?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: We watched it—I grew up here, Amy. We watched it, totally, right up close and personal. We did the accounting. I work with a political scientist named Bob Fitrakis. We’re about to come out with another book, The Strip & Flip of the 2016 Selection. They are stripping the voter rolls—and Greg Palast, the great investigative reporter, is doing great on this—removing African Americans, Hispanics, people who might incline to vote progressive, and they—so that—in 2004, they stripped 300,000 people from the voter rolls here in the urban areas. Bush only won by less than 120 [thousand].

And this year, about 80 percent of the vote nationally will be cast on electronic voting machines. There is no verifiability. In six key swing states—Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and Arizona—you have Republican governors and Republican secretaries of state, and no method of verifying the electronic vote count. At midnight or whenever it is on election night, those two guys can go in there with an IT person and flip the outcome of an electronically counted vote within about 60 seconds. So all this millions and millions of dollars, people out campaigning and so on, can be negated by an electronic vote flip late at night on election night, and there is no way to verify what’s happened.

AMY GOODMAN: They didn’t do this with President Obama in 2008.

HARVEY WASSERMAN: They did. He had too many votes; he was too far out. They couldn’t—it would have taken them too many, to flip too many states. [inaudible] believe Obama won by well over 10 million votes. The last—the final vote count was in—official, was in 7 or 8 million.

AMY GOODMAN: But what gives you this idea?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: Because we’ve seen it happen. When you compare exit polls, which are generally accurate to within 1 percent, with the electronic outcome, there are huge variations. And we have documented many dozens of different things that they have done over the years to flip electronic votes.

AMY GOODMAN: How does e-voting, electronic voting, work? And who controls the controls on it?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: Well, that’s the key. The electronic voting machines are owned by private corporations, which are Republican in orientation, generally. And the courts have ruled that the source code on these electronic voting machines is proprietary. So, even the governments that buy or lease these machines have no access to a final verification process. Even Ronald Reagan said, "Trust, but verify." And we know that the vote count was flipped in 2004. We know it was flipped in Volusia County in 2000.

AMY GOODMAN: Where is Volusia County?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: In Florida, when Al Gore basically was the rightful winner, and George W. Bush won the election. I mean, the only great—

AMY GOODMAN: And they were electronic voting machines?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: In Volusia County, they were, yes. In the southern part of Florida, they used butterfly ballots, as you’ll recall. The only good thing we can say about George W. Bush is the American people never actually elected him president. And we’re looking now at 2016, at an election that will be very easily flipped, in those six key swing states and elsewhere.

AMY GOODMAN: What do you think is the answer?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: We have to have universal, hand-counted paper ballots. And Bernie Sanders has endorsed that. We have to have automatic voter registration, where people can monitor the registration rolls, because people are being stripped from the registration rolls, mostly, of course, African-American and Hispanic. But this year, we’re not going to get that. And this year, it’s going to be very, very difficult, in a close election, to monitor exactly what happens, because these are black boxes. We have a wonderful actress named Bev Harris, who’s been working with Greg Palast and others, who has shown, in black box voting, that the public has no real access, no verification process for the electronic votes. And so we’re going through this huge charade here of a national campaign, primaries and then a general election, where hundreds of millions of dollars will be spent, and on election night, in 60 seconds, the actual outcome can be flipped electronically in key swing states with no verification whatsoever.

AMY GOODMAN: If there are electronic voting machines everywhere, which there are now, right?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: Pretty much, yes.

AMY GOODMAN: How do you think they can be protected, people can be sure that their vote is counted, that they cast, even using electronic voting machines?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: They can’t be. You cannot verify an electronic voting machine. They are privately owned by private corporations, and the proprietary software prevents the public from getting access to the actual vote count. We’re going into a national election, and not just the presidency, but Senate seats, House seats. We believe three Senate seats in 2014 were stolen—in North Carolina, Colorado and Alaska—that the Republicans do not have a legitimate 54-seat, or whatever it is, majority in the Senate. And this will happen again. It’s not just the presidency. And we’ve been—we have written seven books about this, Bob Fitrakis and I, from our experience here in Ohio in 2004. And again, we have a Republican governor, Republican secretary of state, no verifiability on the electronic vote count. It will be arbitrary, when push comes to shove, on—midnight, 1:00 on election night—what the outcome will be.

AMY GOODMAN: Why do you think just Republicans would do it?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: Oh, no, Democrats definitely do it. I have—we have strong questions about Rahm Emanuel being re-elected in Chicago, for example. We have no doubt that Scott Walker stole his re-election in Wisconsin.

AMY GOODMAN: Based on what?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: Based on the miraculous discovery of several thousand votes in a so-called glitched computer voting machine that gave him a victory where it was clearly a defeat. You know, this is stuff that’s been going on a long time. These methods were perfected more or less overseas by the CIA and other covert and overt operations. They came back. It started in 1988 with George H.W. Bush using electronic voting machines in New Hampshire to beat Bob Dole in the 1988 primary. And we have seen since then the use of electronic voting machines all across the country to flip elections after they have stripped the voter rolls. And, you know—

AMY GOODMAN: When you say "stripping the voter rolls," you mean?

HARVEY WASSERMAN: Yes, well, Greg Palast has reported on this. In Florida 2000, 90,000 mostly black and Hispanic voters were stripped out of the voter rolls before the election, in a vote count that was won by 600 votes. And in Ohio 2004, 300,000 voters in primarily urban areas were stripped off the voter rolls. People showed up to vote in the same precinct—as did I, by the way—they were—I was denied my absentee ballot, and we had a federal lawsuit on this, which we won and went nowhere after that.

But the reality is that we are voting in black boxes and that the governors and secretaries of state of these key swing states—but wherever you have a governor and secretary of state from the same party, be they Democrat or Republican, they have the power, under the electronic voting system, to flip the outcome of an election, with no verifiability, because the courts have ruled that these privately owned voting machines have proprietary software. It’s a nightmare. And it’s not democracy. I mean, Bernie Sanders has shown that the election—that the campaign finance is rigged, that the economy is rigged. Why wouldn’t they take the very small next step to rig the electronic voting machines?

AMY GOODMAN: Well, we’re going to leave it there for right now, Harvey Wasserman, independent journalist, longtime anti-nuclear activist. His recent article for the is "Why the Deafening Silence on Cutting the Military Budget?" His upcoming book is called The Strip & Flip Selection of 2016: Five Jim Crows & Electronic Election Theft.

Actual Chicago Election Board Meeting 2016-04-05 Showing It should be 56.7% for Bernie 18.4% Swing

This is NOT intended to cast any Dispersion on any Candidate, Candidate’s or Party it is expressly done to show that there is a serious problem with electronic voting machines that affect ALL parties the title only reflect the facts of the meeting.

This is the actual video tape of the meeting of the Chicago board of elections.

In one example noted during video, 21 Bernie votes were erased and 49 Hillary votes added to audit tally in order to match machine count. In this one precinct, this change from the actual results accounted for nearly 20% of overall votes cast. The actual tally was 56.7% in Bernie's favor. After count was manipulated by machine he lost with 47.5% of vote. A whopping 18.4% swing.

Click on this link to watch the video,

it is a rather long video, you can skip the formalities and move ahead to 24:30 when the actual poll workers were giving testimony to the board of election as to what they saw during the audit.

Mind you these are not your usual poll workers, one person is a Doctor DO*, and another has a Degree in Political science, another is a lawyer from New York, and still another from a voter integrity project.

This is something that should concern everyone who votes…

Republician, Democrats, Indipendents, Green Party, Libertian, Working Family Party… ALL Parties.

04-20-2016                                After All. 3.2 Million New Yorkers Lost Their Voting Rights.

Below Is a list of stories, that at the very least shows that something once again is wrong with our voting system.

First, Florida, then Ohio, then Nevada, Arizona, and now New York Will be added to the legacy list of thousands of voters, No MILLION’S of voters, not able to vote due to voter purges in New York.

This was once considered to be Republican dirty tricks...I guess the Democrats now have the same problem as well, except this time it was used on their own party.

The number that I wrote about the 126,000 people was from only 1 (ONE) county, the rest of the state had the same problems, totaling 3.2 Million Voters or 27% of the voting rolls...

27% If That Don’t Beat All

New Yorkers File Emergency Lawsuit To Give Voting Rights Back To 3.2 Million People

NEW YORK, NEW YORK — With less than 24 hours until the presidential primary, a group of New Yorkers who saw their party affiliations mysteriously switched are filing a lawsuit Monday seeking to open the state’s closed primary so that they can cast a ballot.

New York has the earliest change-of-party deadline in the country — registered independent voters who wanted to participate in Tuesday’s presidential primary had to change their party by last October. Many voters missed that deadline — or thought they met it, only to have paperwork get lost in the mail — and are disenfranchised as a result.

The lawsuit is asking for an emergency declaratory judgment that would make Tuesday’s primary open, meaning any registered New York voter could cast a ballot in either party’s primary.

From The Wall street Journal

New York Voters Report Irregularities at Poll Sites

Widespread complaints about faulty ballot scanners, inadequate staffing at poll sites and tens of thousands of people missing from the voter rolls on Tuesday led New York City’s comptroller to call for an audit of the Board of Elections.

From The Gothammist

Twice As Many Brooklyn Democrats Were Removed From Voter Rolls Than Initially Thought

Michael Ryan, who's the executive director at the NYC Board of Elections, told WNYC that the number breaks down as follows: 44,000 voters were inactive; 70,000 were removed from the inactive voter list; and 12,000 people had moved out of the borough.

Voting Problems Plague High-Stakes Primary Day in New York

Some precincts opened two hours later than they were supposed to, while some would-be voters' names couldn't be found on registration lists Amid charges of voting machine mishaps and names purged from voter rolls, New Yorkers cast their ballots Tuesday in high-stakes Democratic and Republican primaries—those who were able to, at least.

There were reports that some precincts opened two hours later than they were supposed to, and would-be voters whose names couldn't be found on registration lists. 

The state's "strict voter registration rules sparked mounting frustration and anger among Bernie Sanders supporters," the Guardian reported, "as some discovered they were unable to vote in the primary election showdown with Hillary Clinton only after arriving at their local polling stations."

According to the Guardian, some "registered voters arrived at polling stations claiming they had met all the requirements to switch party affiliation in time, yet still found themselves missing from the list, prompting angry scenes that may further hamper hopes of reconciling the two wings of the Democratic party once the nomination is decided."

From The New York Post

It’s NYC’s first relevant primary in decades, and the polls are a mess

New York voters battled closed polling stations and broken machines Tuesday morning during the city’s first relevant primary in decades.

At PS 73 in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, residents waiting for the polls to open at 6 a.m. were furious that workers couldn’t access keys to the facility.

“You can’t vote nor cast any type of ballot. They (the keys to the building) are in a locked box and no one has the key,” Torsha Childs wrote on Facebook. “You can’t even get inside the building, you are being turned away at the door way. WOW !!!”

A Board of Elections employee was supposedly on the way, she added.

Voters made the same complaint about shuttered polls at another Brooklyn site, 501 Carlton Ave. not far from the Barclays Center.

04-16-2016                            This honor is YUGE! 

From The Daily Kos

Pope Francis is Feeling The Bern, arranged personal meeting with Sanders this morning!

The meeting took place at the papal residence early Saturday, according Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs.

A Vatican source said the meeting was not a chance encounter and had been planned.

Sanders and wife, Jane, stayed overnight at the pope's residence, the Domus Santa Marta hotel in the Vatican gardens, on the same floor as the pope.

From Washington Post

Bernie Sanders says private meeting with Pope Francis is not an endorsement

From Reuters

Pope says his meeting with Sanders not political meddling

As usual, Hillary Clinton not to be out done by the Pope now goes to the Pope's Boss for help!!

This picture I posted on a diary on the Daily Kos

The image was found in the Daily Kos public images. and I Posted this story.

This picture created a firer storm over at the Daily Kos

Hillary Clinton not to be out done again by Bernie Sanders Now goes To The Pope's Boss.

Original image appeared on CNN. Credit to the original author found in the original Meta data.

Alterations not accredited in the Meta date either missing or deleted.


Someone continued to insist it was theirs, when pushed they finally admitted the image wasn't theirs, but because they altered it now belong to them. Next they insisted that i at least give them credit for the image. I checked the Meta data and it was scrubbed. I then searched the web and found the original image and found it belongs to someone else (as I indicated above). There was still a few demanding to take the Image down because it belongs to them.

The reality is:

After finding the information I posting this in final reply...

Someone takes a copyright image and in the original Meta data, there is a request by LIONEL BONAVENTURE to give the author credit for his image.

Instead the Original Meta data is striped from the image.

NO Credit given to the Original creator of the image, as requested by LIONEL BONAVENTURE.

The image is then altered, anonymously, original information scrubbed and then they DEMAND credit for something that is clearly not their property, after they themselves never gave credit to LIONEL BONAVENTURE.

Am I missing something???

I posted two of the same Diary’s with different pictures and similar captions. It became a barrage of attacking the creditable of the story, attacking the image and other diarists as well

I then posted The Message Hillary Supporters Seem to Have Missed!

I pointed out that no matter how an issue is presents there was never a rational discussion. For the most part Bernie supporters were far more civil then Hillary supporters. Bernie supporters were willing to talk about the issues. Only time 1 person ever became civilized it was well after they were informed of the sociological event. The rest continued to drone on and use cutting digs at Bernie supporters about everything but the issues.

There is a seething anger among Hillary Supporters. What concerns me is how quickly these people are willing to attack a political opponent, they in all likelihood will be all too willing to bomb more innocent people as in Iraq, and Syria, once given a new target to point their venom at.

If Hillary is so good and kind as a person why does she inspire so much hate among her own supporters?

This was the image that had it's data deleted and then altered... that they now calim was theirs.

Note the Meta data as to the rightfull owner. LIONEL BONAVENTURE and the copyright.


04-15-2016   Bernie Sanders, New York's Natiave Sun, Hits it Out of the Brooklyn Nave Yard, 

                                                            at Tonight’s Debate. 

   A very good Diary at Daily Kos gives a good un-biased report of the event, it is worth reading.

There's no place like home. Sanders trounces Clinton at the 9th Democratic Debate

Essentially Bernie Sanders took the Hillary Clinton to task, on everything.

Basically Bernie Sanders was the Bernie Sanders we have all seen at his rallies. Bernie won the day.

From Hillary’s support of expanding franking overseas, to speaking fees, it all came up tonight. There were multiple times that even the moderators and Bernie Sanders had to remind Hillary that she did not answer the question.

He definitely proved he has a plan for how to break up the big banks and hold them accountable. And put the Bank CEO’s that caused the problem in jail.

He was not shy over saying he wants to remove marijuana as a schedule 1 drug, and treat drug addiction as a health issue not a police issue, of which Hillary was silent on.

 Bernie Sanders wants to have a WW ll style approach to combating climate change, if we could mobilize our country in 1942 then why can’t we do it now.. Hillary continued to tout virtues of incremental change.

When Hillary was questioned on copies of her speeches, Hillary again said that when every other candidate (intimating ALL the republican candidates as well) release copies of their speeches they gave for the big banks she would release hers. When asked, Bernie Sanders once again stated he has released them…there are none!

Then Hillary then again changed the subject to Bernie’s unreleased tax statements Bernie said “I remain one of the poorer members of the United States Senate”. He then said that by tomorrow he would have 2014 and the rest in a few days.

When Hillary attacked Bernie Sanders his gun record by saying most of the guns used to murder people in NY come from his state of Vermont. Both the moderator and Bernie called her out on that, as a complete falsehood, unless you consider 1½% “most”.

From The diary linked above that is very well stated.

On Israel-Palestine: Sanders spoke of the needs and rights of the Palestinian people while acknowledging Israel’s right to security. Clinton virtually refused to acknowledge the rights of the Palestinian people and blamed the collapse of the 2000 Camp David talks between the Israeli-Palestinian leadership on Yasser Arafat, a claim which has already been thoroughly debunked by Naomi Klein in her book The Shock Factor. Sanders easily painted her as a hawk on Israel-Palestine, while Clinton achieved several boos from the crowd.”

When both candidates’ asked if Judge Garland was not approved after the election, would you ask President Obama to withdraw the nomination? Hillary said No. Bernie said Yes, because Judge Garland still has not made it clear if he supports Citizen United Bernie then said, that any supreme court nominee of his would be solidly against Citizens United.

When Hillary attacked Bernie on his health care plan as too expensive and we need to build on the ACA (Obama care) Bernie explained and proved that his plan of Medicare for ALL would work.

In My onion: In spite of Hillary Clinton filibustering and talking over Bernie Sanders when he was talking, and continuing to talk well after her time was up it just didn’t seem to stop the momentum building among the audience. It seemed that the more the debate went on the less enthusiastic the applause were for Hillary and the more enthusiastic they were for Bernie, in fact on several occasions, “Ber-nie…Ber-nie… Ber-nie” chanting broke out. It seemed that whenever Hillary Clinton got large applause for her answer, once Bernie Sanders answered his applause was much greater. There were times that Hillary Clinton was noticeable rattled.


04-14-2016  UP DATE it’s possible that 48,000 People were at the Washington Square Park.

Democratic Underground, and several others are reporting that there 27,000, in the park and additional 20,000+ on the streets around the park. Judging by these Photos’ it could well be true. Right now The Media is going with 27,000



04-13-2016   Estamated 27,000 were at Bernie Sanders Rally in Washington Square Park tonight. Including a few thousand workers from Verizion & NYC Transit union workers. Bernie Sanders Has stood for them now and in the past.They NOW! Stand with Bernie Sanders!!!

Guess who had to follow Bernie Sanders see what is going on....While Bernie Sanders walked the picket line with Verizon union workers. Hillary Clinton stopped by for a photo op; somehow the workers do not seem too impressed. In fact they seem to be ignoring her as a whole.



If Hillary Clinton is always following Bernie Sanders lead, and then changing her mind back again when she thinks no one is looking. Question...Why do we need Hillary Clinton? When Bernie Sanders a real leader.




04-09-2016                                             My God,... the meaning of “IS” is back


Below is the latest e-mail I received from the Hillary campaign:

You should know what’s going on behind the scenes at HQ

Bernie's campaign has a new strategy -- in states they didn’t win like Nevada and Florida, they’re flooding local conventions with volunteers to try to “steal” delegates for Bernie, overturning the will of the voters.
“Steal” isn’t my word. It’s what one of Bernie’s top staffers said: “Volunteers mobilized to get tons of people to show up to the state convention and actually steal the day for Bernie.”
If they can’t win contests outright, they’ve decided to try and sway superdelegates and even pledged delegates to their side -- and in some states, it’s working. That means we need to bring home even BIGGER wins in New York, Pennsylvania, and more to make sure voters’ voices get heard and Hillary wins this nomination.

That starts with you, William. Will you chip in $1 right now to help lock down this nomination once and for all?

Thanks -- I’m so proud of our team, and I’m so glad you’re a part of it.

Robby Mook
Campaign Manager Hillary for America

Maybe higher education is not it’s all it’s cracked up to be. Reading this is a setup to smear Bernie’s honesty and integrity. From the beginning of the campaign as far back as June 2015 polls reflect that Hillary then had a 50% unfavorably rating, due to trust issues.

It’s painfully oblivious that because Polls and Pundits were giving the race to Hillary it was merely a pep rally statement, like a coach telling his team to “Go out there and kill them” at a football game. “Steal” was used “metaphorically” not literally. The same way Football players don’t  go out and actually try to “kill” the other team.

This is a Karl Rove strategy… attack the person by accusing them of having your weakness. IE: George Bush was a deserter, and John Kerry was a decorated war hero, so what do you do…you “Swift Boat” John Kerry.

 ( swift boating: The act of discrediting a political opponent by making exaggerated or out rightly false claims about his/her character and past actions.)

Could it be that super delegates that are switching to Bernie Sanders, because the more Bernie’s message gets out the more he overwhelmingly turns the maps GREEN in the states he has won. The more people hear his message, the more people look into Bernie Sanders and find out he is the real deal.

Now the choice is to either back Hillary Clinton in states she lost, or go with the will of the people’s choice. In a back handed way they are telling us the more people that come out for Bernie, the more super delegates are likely to switch allegiance to Bernie Sanders

I think that the Clinton campaign sees the once insurmountable delegate count has dwindled down to just over 200. Now that the super delegates are in motion that 200+ is not looking so good.

There’s an interesting read at the HP about The Hillary Clinton Campaign  mendacious tactics that they used back in 2008 on now President Barack Obama. How Can Black People Trust Hillary Clinton After the 2008 Campaign?


There’s something to be said for NYC street smarts.



Bernie Sanders is People Powered

To start let me say this. I have listened to Bernie Sanders for over 15 years; I have talked to him on several occasions on "Brunch with Bernie" on the Thom Hartmann program, where he would, for 1 hour nearly every Friday, take unscripted questions from anyone who called in. I have heard him offering help to people not even in his state and he would ask them to call his office so he or his staff could help them. He is the real deal what you see now he has always been a man of and for the people.

This unscheduled interruption about nothing that will not help the American people was brought to by the multi-billion dollar media, Thank You for not getting involved in the real political issues of Endless Wars, lost privacy rights, Inequity of the 99% to the 1%, Growing Poverty with each new trade agreement. Lack of…fill in the blank

And as far as qualified or not, this is not the first time any candidate has been called not qualified. And it certainly will not be the last, so to me this is a non-issue created by media to sell news, divide people, and NOT TALK ABOUT THE ISSUES. For Three days the news did not talk about the issues but instead who said what. Even Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton have called their opponents not qualified in the past, so why is this news dominating event…

TO STOP TALKING ABOUT THE ISSUES, and make it a personal mudslinging match, and to fill the news and air waves with salacious titillating gossip, and not what really matters to the well beening of Democracy. End goal primarily is to continue to rake in billions in revenue while not telling you anything, and so  everything remains the same or better for them...but far worse for us we the people.

Here do you want stupid arguments about nothing…

Nothing to enlighten or inform us…

Just stupid conspiracy theory.

Why is the Arrow Pointing Right?

Why is it on a closepin, anything to do with baking cookies…



So let’s try to defuse this next duplicitous statement, before it blows up:

A few days ago I got a campaign call from a Hillary Clinton supporter who starts out the call by saying “I’m from the Hillary campaign and I want to remind you that the primary is on April 19th. After a short exchange after saying thank you but we were voting for Bernie Sanders, she repeatedly told me that Bernie Sanders was not a Democrat when we told her he was she said she couldn’t find the answer anywhere, and didn’t believe Bernie Sanders was a Democrat.

Shortly after that everyone from Hillary on down, was saying the same thing “I don’t even know if he is a Democrat.”

 Can we stop using the “Lie of omission” by either not answering, or saying “I don’t know if he is a Democrat... When asked the question of if Bernie is a Democrat.


And from Hillary’s own twitter account: Supporters acount

Enough is enough. No more destructiveness. It's time for Obama, Biden and Warren to unite the party around the only Democrat in the race.

Bernie Sanders is a Registered Democrat…

Update 04-10-2016  Bernie Sanders Registered with the FEC on 4-30-2016

Bernie Sanders FEC Filings note: UNDER PARTY

Also in Accordance With Vermont Law someoneone needs only to declair that they are a democrat and that is now your party...The Exception is when there is a Presidential Primary you must choose a party balot to vote”.

Meaning of Registered: Having your name entered in an official list or register

Update 04-10-2016

Hear is a link to Bernie Sanders FEC Filings HAND DELIVERD on 4-30-2015


GAME OVER!!!!  Meaning of Registered: Having your name entered in an official list or register


Bernie Sanders is a Registered Democrat…

So there are TWO (2)Registered Democrats in the race.

I think the better question is whether he upholds the traditions and values of the people. On that you will find that he has a record in upholding the traditions of FDR, and Jefferson.

He cauces in both houses within the Democratic Party

Bernie Sanders helped found the Congressional Progressive Caucus and was the first chairman.

He has chaired the Democratic chair for veteran’s affairs, and has relentlessly fought both the Bush and the Obama administrations to increase aid to Veteran’s, For housing, education, and Medical benefits.

Now the question should not be if he is a Democrat, which he is, and more than many other Democrats, but if he upholds the traditions and values of the people. On that you will find that he has a record in upholding the traditions of FDR, and Jefferson. He has always been inclusive of everyone. Look at his voting record, where if the then political establishment had listened to even one of his warnings in the past we would have a much different situation in America now.

If we would have listened when Bernie Sanders was against NAFTA, maybe 60,000 factories in America would still be open…WHY can’t we pay for someone to go to college even if it costs $20,000 to $30,000 dollars? We spend $2.1 million for every U.S. troop serving in Afghanistan for a year. Maybe there would be far fewer people in poverty… Maybe…

If we had listened to Bernie Sanders, about the Iraq war, which most now know was a fabricated lie, and has cost us dearly in lives that can never be replaced, and not just Americans, but innocent citizens in the cities caught in the bombing’s and crossfire of troops.

AGAIN: We spend $2.1 million for each U.S. troop serving in Afghanistan for a year. There are currently 32,000 troops can do the math, my calculator does not have enough digits.

It cost the bridges, roads, and Infrastructure to fall into decay due to lack of funds, it has cost a generation of lost youth who could not afford a decent education, from good paying jobs ripped away from families by NAFTA, and now TPP, that even $5,000 dollars is to much to afford for their children’s education.

Bernie Sanders Is Walking in the footsteps of our founders. 




04-07-2016  Why Is It That Hillary Clinton Is Using Rebublician Stragities on Bernie Sanders?

First Hillary Clintons Aids put out the known self-fabricated story. The media picks it up and amplifies, without checking out the facts. They then go to Hillary and ask her and instead of saying that is not true and I will have to talk to my staff about, she doubles down on the comment with vagary, and “I think that he himself doesn't consider himself to be a Democrat” and “in fact, I'm not even sure he is one”. Then when Bernie Sanders, responds Hillary Clinton cry’s foul.

It’s just another definition of the word “IS”.

First Hillary Clinton’s aids peddle the setup to the media for endeless repeating loops on the networks and press, then Hillary Clinton, say “I never said that”

However, as a spokesperson for Clinton pointed out, she didn't technically say he wasn't qualified to be president. Rather, she declined to say he is qualified three times and finally said she'd "leave it to voters to decide who can do the job that the country needs."

Another definition of the word “IS”

Clinton aides have suggested that Wisconsin was a state in many ways tailor-made for Sanders, given the progressive political climate.

So If Hillary is a progressive, why was it that Wisconsin was tailor-made for Bernie and not Hillary?

During a lengthy interview with Politico’s Glenn Thrush Hillary Clinton was asked whether she thought Sanders was a real Democrat, Hillary’s response: Well, I can't answer that, Glenn, because he's a relatively new Democrat, and, in fact, I'm not even sure he is one. He's running as one. So I don't know quite how to characterize him. I'll leave that to him.

And Again:

When asked Wednesday if Clinton believed her rival was a Democrat, the former secretary of state said: "I think that he himself doesn't consider himself to be a Democrat."

"But it's up to the Democratic primary voters to make that assessment," Clinton told MSNBC.

Same game plan again, plant the seed, knowingly based on a complete Fabrications then say “I don’t know”

"Leave it to voters to decide who can do the job that the country needs."

“I'll leave that to him”.

"But it's up to the Democratic primary voters to make that assessment,"


 The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) was established in 1991 by Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and five members of the United States House of Representatives:. It is the largest Caucus in the Democratic party, and Bernie Sanders has always caucused with the Democrats, even while Hillary Clinton was in the congress, and while she was Secretary of state. Hillary is not a member. In one of the debates when talking about Healthcare she said she never saw Bernie Sanders there, while pictures show Bernie Sanders standing right behind her at the presentation.

The Clintons gave us the third way, and the repeal of Glass–Steagall Act, that lead directly to the crash of 2009, and hundreds of millions of dollars coming into the party from the Big Banks. Any wonder why not one banker has even seen an investigation let alone an arrest for their wrong doing.

12-09-2015 Bernie Sanders Visits Site Of Freddie Gray’s Murder While Officer Stands Trial

My Comment on Facebook Below.

"This does not surprise me in the least. Bernie has stood up with and for the all people long before anyone ever knew his name or that he was fighting for them. I have followed Bernie Sanders for years now on "Brunch with Bernie" an unscripted radio show on the "Thom Hartmann Program" and for an hour Bernie would talk to anyone who called in to the show and asked him any question, and he would answer them honestly. What he is saying today he has said for years now, and more. He is as real as they come.

Now The Story From ThinkProgress


BALTIMORE, MARYLAND — Until Tuesday, 49-year-old Mike Williams had never seen a presidential candidate visit Sandtown-Winchester — the impoverished Baltimore neighborhood where police killed 25-year-old Freddie Gray this past April. As Democratic hopeful Bernie Sanders passed by, surrounded by local African American pastors and tailed by dozens of reporters, Williams told ThinkProgress he was impressed.

“I have never, ever seen a person running for president come through here. Not one time,” he said. “At first, I wondered if he is just trying to get the black vote. But I did some research and found out he fought a lot for civil rights, and even marched at one time with Martin Luther King. I never knew that. And in his speeches, he says, ‘Yes, black lives do matter.'”

Williams, a neighbor and friend of Freddie Gray, said he wanted Sanders to see the exact spot where the young man suffered a fatal spine injury in police custody. “That was some foul stuff they did to my man,” he said. “But I was always taught that everything happens for a reason. So it’s sad he had such a short life but the good side is that he made a big impact, not only in Baltimore but all over the country.”

Protests over the police killings of Gray and others across the country have also left its mark on the presidential race, including Sanders’ campaign. After having his speeches interrupted by Black Lives Matter demonstrators in multiple states, Sanders released a comprehensive racial justice platform covering everything from police brutality to voter suppression. He also met with the mother of Sandra Bland — who died in a jail cell in Texas — and since then has repeatedly invoked her memory in calling for police reform. Yet the senator from the overwhelmingly white state of Vermont has struggled to connect with voters of colors, and trails rival Hillary Clinton in polls of African Americans.

On a cold Tuesday morning, Sanders followed some of Baltimore’s most influential black clergy to the corner where Freddie Gray was loaded into a police van, marked by a pile of sagging balloons, weathered teddy bears, and written messages for Gray. He saw the Gilmore public housing complex, where residents say they were forced to trade sexual favors for basic maintenance. He saw the surrounding streets, where nearly every other house and storefront was boarded up. He saw a mural the community had made with a larger-than-life depiction of Gray’s face and Baltimore residents marching in the streets for justice.

Pausing before the mural, Sanders said he found the depth of poverty he witnessed “stunning.”

“We are less than an hour away from the White House and the United States Congress,” he said. “It is stunning to understand that we are the wealthiest country in the history of the world, and every year we are seeing more and more millionaires and billionaires, but in communities like this, we are seeing kids dropping out of school, living in dilapidated housing. It is time to transform our national priorities.”

Like Williams, other local residents recognized the man challenging Hillary Clinton for the 2016 nomination.

“Hey, that’s Bernie Sanders, he doesn’t have a Super PAC,” called out one man standing in front of the burned, hollowed-out shell where a CVS once stood.

Some residents urged Sanders to “beat Donald Trump,” while others used the rare visit from a presidential candidate to bring attention to the ongoing trial of the police officers who killed Gray. “All night, all day, we’re gonna fight for Freddie Gray,” they chanted as Sanders passed by a block where the majority of homes were boarded up. “We want jobs. Where are the jobs?”

One young woman shouted at Sanders as he passed: “Even when you’re gone we’re still going to be fighting. What are you going to do to end police brutality? We want action.”

Rev. Dr. Jamal Bryant, who led the tour, told ThinkProgress it was important for Sanders to hear directly from these residents and see the conditions they live in firsthand. “These are intelligent voters. Just because they’re poor doesn’t mean they’re uninformed. It did my heart good to see these are not people giving up on life. They’re hungry for an opportunity.”

Bryant, the reverend at Baltimore’s Empowerment Temple AME Church said he felt the roughly half-hour tour was a crucial experience for the famously wonky lawmaker. “I know the senator knows numbers and statistics, but I wanted him to see this poverty firsthand. And he was blown away by it.”

After the walking tour, at a nearby community center, Sanders reflected on the difference between Gray’s neighborhood and his own back in Burlington, Vermont.

“A few blocks from where Jane and I live, there’s a very nice grocery store. We buy good quality food at a reasonable price. You don’t have that here. The prices people in this community are paying are substantially higher. And I can put my money in a bank, where I earn interest. I can cash a check without paying 15, 20 or 50 percent. There aren’t any banks in this community. So it seems like it’s very expensive to be poor.”

The data back up Sanders’ observation. A report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that stores in lower-income neighborhoods charge higher prices for food, driving families to purchase lower quality items. Food purchased at convenience and corner stores — which are more common in poor neighborhoods — can be 20 percent more expensive than the same item in a grocery store.

As for access to a savings or checking account, the World Bank notes the scarcity of banks in neighborhoods like Sandtown is a major factor that exacerbates poverty. Without a secure bank account, the poor are less able to “manage risk and absorb financial shocks.”

Despite expressing admiration for his economic and criminal justice reform proposals, the 15 African American pastors who met with Sanders did not endorse him. They told reporters the meeting was just the beginning of a relationship and talks with other presidential candidates — beginning with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) — are scheduled in the coming weeks.

Rev. Donte Hickman, who leads the Southern Baptist Church in East Baltimore, told ThinkProgress following the meeting that he found Sanders “empathetic” and “very impressive.”

“I got the sense that he feels for the disfranchised and disadvantaged and is working to address our issues,” he said. “We’ve got blocks and blocks of blight. We have food deserts. We have liquor stores on every corner. We have blue collar jobs leaving town.”

Hickman, who grew up in poverty in Baltimore and overcame a drug addiction before joining the ministry, says he and the other pastors “grilled” Sanders on how he would address police militarization, create economic opportunities in poor neighborhoods, and tackle the problem of mass incarceration. “It wasn’t volatile, but we weren’t being pansies either,” he told ThinkProgress. “I’m not sure the senator knew what he was getting into.” 

From ThinkProgress

My only comment is "Do Not be suprised I am sure Bernie Sanders Knew What He Was Getting Into. He has fought this struggle for years, and If I could be so bold as to say I Think Martain Luther King Would Now be Marching with Bernie Sanders Today, Just as Bernie once Marched with Him years ago, The Fight Is Still the Same Only the Time Has Changed .


11-17-2015             In Spite Of The Division Created With It's Members The SEIU Endorsed Hillary

SEIU has been the primary union behind the Fight for $15 an hour... In a statement by SEIU's president, Mary Kay Henry,  "Hillary Clinton has proven she will fight, deliver and win for working families,". So Why Would they endorse Hillary, when she had said in the debates she does NOT SUPPORT $15 an hour but rather around $12 to be implemented over time. In Hillary's answer she implied she thinks there is nothing wrong with poverty wages. Her Corporate roots as a lawyer for Wall Mart and a supporter of The Big Banks are showing again. The Members who disagree I am sure will vote for Bernie Sanders, but this action will cause a division within the membership. 

As Stated in HuffP The endorsement by SEIU doesn't come as a surprise. The choice between Clinton and Sanders has often been cast as a "head versus heart" decision. Sanders has been a strong ally of organized labor during his 25 years in Congress, and he's the sentimental favorite of many progressive union members. But union leaders generally see Clinton as their best shot to defeat a Republican in the general election, and they find her labor platform appealing even if it's less progressive than Sanders'.

The statement above is confusing; because in every single poll, Bernie Sanders beat ALL GOP Candidate’s hands down, while Hillary Does NOT. Bernie has actually walked the picket lines with the SEIU while Hillary claimed to support a $15 dollar wage in June to people’s faces while at the Debate she takes it back and now only supports $12 an hour. Could it be because at the Debates she was around her wealthy donors?  So when was she telling the truth… when she supported the $15 an hour in June or at the debate in November when she told her “Financial Peers” she now only supported $12 an hour. Bernie has been an ardent supporter for $15 an hour wages and introduced a bill in congress to make it happen, while Hillary changes her mind downward, and behind the backs of those she once said something else.

I guess Bernie Sanders honesty and a lifelong commitment to the working middle class has very little value to Mary Kay Henry and other union board members.

I suggest that you turn off you televisions and stop listening to main stream media that is one of Hillary Clinton’s biggest donors. Go out into the world and talk to the people who know that there is a Mainstream media news blackout on Bernie Sanders. The media has prepared for a Bush Verses Clinton War for the last 7 years and do not want to have someone like Bernie Sanders ruin their “Horserace”. After all Bernie Sanders has publically stated and even in the debates, he wanted to break up the conglomerate media monopolies… is it any wonder all you hear from the talking heads is Clinton, Bush,... Hillary, Jeb. Hasn’t America had enough of beening ruled by a Clinton whose actions on eliminating the Glass–Steagall Act gave us the banking failures and the recession of 2007, or his push for the NAFTA agreement (A wholly Republican initiative) that had started the loss of 60,000 factories closing.  Or both Bush1 and Bush2, both lying us into 3 major wars Iraq, Iraq2 and Afghanistan Let’s not succumb to the “Media Grudge match” of Hillary Verses Bush.

 Hasn’t 20 years of Clinton and Bush done enough destruction to our country our laws and our way of life, and Arguable 28 years now with another friend of big banks with Obama and his push for the TPP?

“Open your eyes it’s time to wake up…Enough is enough… Enough is Enough.”(Chumbawamba)

11-17-2015             Letter to SEIU posted to Their Facebook Page

Elaine Hyland-Peary (Bill Founder and Editor of ( Please Endorse Bernie Sanders. He has always stood with the working middle class. I have followed him for 18 years now he is without a doubt the most honest hard working politician I have ever seen. He is someone that does not change his mind at the drop of a hat. He supported legislation for the working class, unlike Hillary who never gives a consistent answer to anything. She continues to say her experience with President Bill Clinton gives her the experience,,, What experience is that....enacting NAFTA....Repealing the Glass–Steagall Act..... Eliminating the Fairness doctrine? Creating the Corporate wing of the Democratic Party (DLC) which includes Goldman Sacks and big Wall Street money and too big to fail? The very same people that have continued to hollow out the middle class. If you want more Republican Lite that is just what you will get with Hillary Clinton…. Rather than a true progressive like Bernie Sanders.

11-17-2015                      My thoughts on Senator Bernie Sanders

He has always told the truth. He has always stood up for working Americans. He has worked for the middle class and the poor, before anyone ever knew his name. He better than the other candidates understands the destructive influence corporate and wealthy influence has had on this country. He does not take money from any of them so he is not ever going to owe them any favors unlike the other candidates. The proof is the media refuses to give him coverage, and the corporate wing of the Democratic Party is trying to sideline him as well. Why is it after the first debate when every single online poll declared Bernie Sanders won the debate by extremely wide margins 70 to 80% for Bernie and 17 to 19% for Hillary. The next day the main stream news declared Hillary Clinton won, and every one took down theie online polls. Bernie Sanders recognizes that the term Privatize is actually means Corporatize. He stands for and has always stood for Women’s right to choose. He has stood against the TPP from the start, recognizing it is just one big handover of our country’s sovereignty to multinational corporations. He understands the income inequity is destroying the middle class. Why is it that the actual workers that actually create the wealth get paid the least?  When others condemn him for beaning a Socialist, they show their ignorance of the fact that the few things that we have left that work in this country are socialist ideas, like our public roads, our fire department, our Post Office, Social Security, NOAA, and our military. Every issue that we have had with our military has been from the pieces we have privatized, i.e.: Halliburton, and Blackwater. Bernie Sanders has walked the walk long before he talked the talk.

If Bernie Sanders does not win the nomination my next choice will be Jill Stein of the Green Party The others have demonstrated that their cooperate ties run too deep, the fact the Clintons helped found the corporate wing of the Democratic Party, the DLC and the Third way, and later gave us NAFTA, and the repeal of the Glass–Steagall Act, shows their beholding to their corporate masters.


03-07-2014   It Appears that  Timothy Geithner, Obama's Handler for the Banks Give OK to XL Pipeline.

By: William A. Peary, Founder and Editor Of Founding

The NY Times did a piece on the KL pipeline This one paragraph says it all.

"The inspector general’s report comes after a State Department environmental review last month concluded that construction of the pipeline would not substantially worsen carbon pollution because most future economic outlines project that the Alberta oil would be extracted and transported to market whether or not Keystone is built."
In other words Mr President if you reject the XL pipeline you can be responsible for removing hundreds of millions of tons of greenhouse pollutants from our Eco-system overnight. Because the Economic model should have already included them?
If it did not, then Why Not!

” MONEY DECIDED WHETHER WE LIVE OR DIE IS THAT IT! AN ECONOMIC model will tell us it is not going to make a difference.

Bankers not scientist are telling us it don’t matter, there will be no harm done.

That's a dam good reason to stop it now... now by stopping it, it will cause a massive reduction in the global warming from the toxins that will be removed from the equation before they can cause more damage to the planet and it's inhabitants.

“Because most future economic outlines project that the Alberta oil would be extracted and transported to market whether or not Keystone is built”
Call their bluff Don't give the oil companies and the banksters the pipeline. If they could do it anyway then you don't need the pipeline.

Without the pipeline it will stop or reduce the rate of the pollutants introduced into the atmosphere while clean energy sources increase in production and use, further reducing and finally eliminating the use of fossil fuels.

 MONEY DECIDED WEATHER WE LIVE OR DIE IS THAT IT! AN ECONOMIC model will tell us it is not going to… Bankers not scientist are telling us it don’t matter. There will be no harm done. The same Masters of the universe that have crashed our economy over and over again. I think that their creditability is less than nil. Their only concern is for their bank account, and when it crashes because they are too big to fail too big to jail so we bail them out and give them our tax dollars to make them whole again, while the reposing the assets (peoples homes) and getting paid for them by the bailouts. Then collecting on their billion dollar bets in the derivative markets they made that the very safe and secure security backed loans they created WILL go bad…but that’s a rant for another time.

When the pipeline leaks, and it will... they all do... and it PERMANENTLY, contaminates an Aquifer that supplies the drinking water for most of the central united states, from South Dakota to The gulf of Mexico. What will South Dakota,  Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico do for water them... Truck it in... build a pipeline for water? And where do you think that water will come from you just polluted and removed hundreds of billions of gallons of palatable drinking water from our supply, a supply that is dwindling due to droughts and climate change that this very pipeline will make far worse. The Oil companies have never to date cleaned up any oil spill and returned the contaminated areas to the per-spill condition. Do you really expect them to now do the impossible and clean up something that once contaminated there is nothing you can do to clean it up.

We can live without oil...We can not live without water.

Has anyone talked to or seen Mother nature lately to ask her if she will be able to bail us out and fix the destruction caused after they fill our planet with more toxins...  
Has anyone seen GOD lately and asked him if he will fix it?
If you look around the world you will find massive oil contamination that have not yet been cleaned up. Maybe we should get thees answers first before the damage is done.
If we cannot stop the leaks or contain the damage and fully reverse the damages from a spill, then common sense tells you don' do it, before you destroy a swatch of America from Canada to the gulf, and then say "NO ONE COULD HAVE FORESEEN THIS HAPPENING".

Well We DID, and now were telling you, just in case you haven't foreseen it happening.

One Question for all those people that keep wanting to pass laws under the reasons of "Protecting the children"... Just where do you think they can go once this planet can no longer support life as we know it.

Now is the time to stand up and say "I give a dam for posterity... I care weather my children and grandchildren will have a planet that they can live on.

To use an old saying "It's time to put up or shut up".
Show us your true colors.

As I said... "We can live without oil...We can not live without water".


05-23-2012     Mr. President, Why Do You Continue Throw Away 788,400 Potential Voters A YEAR

Mr. President, Why Do You Continue To Arrest And Lock Up Your Voters At The Rate Of One Every 40 Seconds For Pot…

In Most States That Is A Felony That Stops Them From EVER Voting Again… And If They Could Vote Again Do You Think That They Will EVER Vote For You Or Any Other Democratic Candidate Again? Can You Afford To Throw Away 358,560 Potential Voters Between Now And The Elections And Continue To Throw Away 788,400 Voters Or At The Rate Of Over ¾ of A MILLION Voters A YEAR. YOU KNOW That Arresting People On POT Charges Is Not A Competent Use Tax Payers Money. As You Once Said, When Asked Did You Inhale you Replied “That Was The Whole Point”. As Someone Who Has Had Experience With Pot Why Do You Continue Follow An Erroneous Policy Of Arrest And Incarceration.

In 1972 A federal commission report advising Congress to remove criminal penalties on the possession and nonprofit distribution of marijuana. The National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse (a.k.a. "the Shafer Commission"), appointed by then-President Richard Nixon, formally made its recommendation on March 22, 1972.

The Cure For Cancer But We Can't Use It... Or Not Until Someone  Can Claim Ownership Of It And Then Charge You Hundreds If Not Thousands Of Dollars For The Cure.

One Logical Conclusion... If It can Kill Known Cancers Then Why Not Decriminalize And Legalize It For Everyone To Use As A Preventative BEFORE You Are Diagnosed With Cancer?

What's Wrong With Going Into A Pot Bar And Coming Out Not Only Happier, But HEALTHIER Then When You Went In?

One Last Thing. No Matter How Much Pot You Consume You Can't Overdose. Point Of Fact: More People Have Died From Legal Prescription Medications Than Using Pot. In Fact There Is Not ONE Single Recorded Case Of Someone Dying From A Pot Overdose In The Last 5,000 Years

 The Divided States Of America… What It Cost?

By: William A. Peary, Founder and Editor Of Founding

Re Published 05-01-2012

Originaly Published  1-30-05

    Everywhere we look today we are being told of how divided we are as a Nation. In the news we are divided into red states and blue states. In the Press we are divided into supporters of this ideal and detractors of that ideal. In our all-consuming sporting events we are divided into two simplistic groups. No matter what the sport, no matter how many teams are involved, we are divided into winners and losers. But are we? We need to start remembering one thing.

We Are Divided Only If We Let It.

            I find it so very hard to believe that we as a nation can be as divided as we are told we are, day in and day out by the media. How can we be that divided, and still call ourselves Americans? When every day we as schoolchildren, grew up reciting the pledge of allegiance from memory. “I pledge allegiance to the flag and the UNITED states of America…. Yes the United States… How could we have forgotten those simple words? Did we willingly forget, or were we unknowingly forced. It was by these simple words that our parents learned to stand together and found that we all were not that different. If they stood together and worked together they could make life better for themselves and their children. They stood together in the face of adversity and formed trade unions to protect not only their jobs, but also jobs for their children. They grew in numbers to become a powerful force that made corporations and governments listen to their demands. They became a engine for progress for all American workers. Somehow in the 80’s and 90’s, after we were told unions were bad, Unions cost us jobs, unions cost us sales to other countries, the deceitful message started to take hold. We once were the country that leads the world because we had the natural resources, and inventive minds to create goods the world wanted. But we were lied to and convinced that we needed to rid ourselves of unions to compete with other countries to sell our goods. We needed to change our trade polices to compete with the world. But whom did we help? Not us! Oh sure corporations turned larger and larger profits but at what cost. The cost was of more and more lost jobs, here in America, by both union and non-union workers. How did this happen you ask?

Because we became divided.

We allowed politicians to change the laws and removed the very laws that protected our jobs, helped our country grow for years. We were told that American workers were at fault, and we believed it, more wedges, more division. Our corporations were at fault, by not providing it’s work force with the tools they needed to stay on top. Instead American companies took their manufacturing facilities to other countries to hire cheaper labor, and through the changed laws were able to bring it back into this country and avoid tariffs. Before that If it costs $1 in labor to make the item here and $0.50 to make it overseas you had to pay a $0.50 tax to bring it into this country, so why should you go through that expense to build a plant out of the country and have to pay to bring it back into this country. End result was it cost more to do that than manufacture it here in this country. It has gotten to the point that we are very close to being a Banana Republic.  The Definition Of a Banana Republic is: A small country that is economically dependent on a single crop, such as bananas, or a single product, such as tin. It is often governed by a dictator, or officers of the armed forces: “America has begun to take on certain . . . characteristics of a banana republic. In those countries, savings are hoarded rather than invested in productive enterprises” (Richard B. Hoey).  [1]

Last year we Exported Millions in raw material to China and then spent Billions importing finished goods from China. We all know that the quality is poor at best, so the lie that it was good for us as Americans was another lie. Inferior goods, made at the cost of American jobs.

Just think about it for one minute, we were told to re-train in the computer field in the early 90’s because working with our hands was a thing of the past. That the money was to be made with our brains, not our hands. Then now in 2004 those jobs too are now being exported over seas.

Until the early 80’s when unions came under attack a union job was the job everyone wanted. It represented a good wage a stable job and good benefits. A Union job paid a decent wage, as anyone who grew up in a union household can tell you, that you may not have been the richest kid on the block but your family did not lack for anything. Unions had health insurance plans, for their workers and their families, they had retirement accounts. Do you see where this is going? It was the ideas that the unions fought for that later became state labor laws. Why? Because they were not divided, they stood together against corporate interests. Because corporations knew that if they did not at least negotiate with the workers unions that they would all stand together and walk out. And the workers knew that a walk out meant no pay so both sides knew it was in their best interest to talk and compromise.

Soon at the rate things are going the only jobs that will be left in America soon will be Politicians, and Police. The politicians to create the laws to protect the corporations and the police to arrest the rest of us.

We are now told that we need to import our labor because Americans do not want to do the work. We will work but not as slaves.

This next statement needs to be stated in it’s own paragraph.

The wealth of this country is now distributed with 1% of the population controlling 90% of the country’s money. The remaining 10% of the countries wealth is divided amongst the remaining 99% of the population.

You need to understand what I just said so I will repeat it, this time try to understand the gravity of the statement.

The wealth of this country is now distributed with 1% of the population controlling 90% of the country’s money. The remaining 10% of the countries wealth is divided amongst the remaining 99% of the population.

Is it any wonder why we have become suspicious of everyone around us? We are like rats in a cage slowly, imperceptibility becoming ever more suspicious of every one else around you and not knowing why. The why is fear, fear that they will take your job, your home, what little you do have.

Is it any wonder how we have become so divided?

As you can see, money has “become the root of all evil” the only way to defeat it is to remove its importance. We need to return to the values of our founding fathers. They knew the power that corporations had wheeled in Europe and wrote protections into the Constitution. The very start read

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. 

            We need to strip the corporations of their ill-gotten power gains. Corporations are not people and should not be accorded the same protections under the Constitution. Remember the First line “We the people”. For years until the late 50’s corporations were not considered a “person”. In fact the Founders were afraid that corporations would grow in strength, and that they would take over the government when they had accumulated enough wealth. That is one reason why a large inheritance tax was instituted, until the late 1890’s. So that great sums of wealth could not be passed on when someone died. It was set up in such a way that the very wealthy could not create a dynasty. Because Dynasty’s have always throughout history have always seized government control, which ultimately lead to that country’s demise. That is why you do not hear about a Washington or a Jefferson Dynasty. Big dynasty’s family names did not start until the late 1800s, because that is when the laws started changing.

Then with their foot in the door the dynasties wealth pushed to change the government checks on corporations so that they could attain even more wealth at a faster rate, swinging away from the ideals the founders had laid down to protect “We the people” In the 1940’s and 50’s corporate laws were slowly changed allowing for further dominance of corporations and even greater wealth to be passed on to the dynastic families who controlled them. Then in the 1980’s that wealth, now controlling the corporations, the corporations began to buy the politicians. Well not outright, but through donations to help their political campaigns. And it all happened because we became distracted with things that were not important just as we are today.

For example there is always some important must see trial on TV. The news pushes it in our face every day and it lasts for months. We didn’t even spend that much time on the trial of Jack Ruby the man who killed Lee Harvey Oswald the person who assonated a sitting president John F. Kennedy. In Fact Kennedy’s assignation received less airtime as a whole than the OJ trials. Its time we just stop the madness. A trial should not take months, and so what if someone you do not know killed his wife. I know it sounds cold, but is it of any importance to you? Will it change your life if you see it? Probably not, but the laws that were changed while you were caught up in the trial that most certainly did. It was the bate and switch, we let it happen.

We let it happen again when so few of us forgot to question we were attacked on 911 on George W. Bush’s watch. We were so quick to blame Clinton for the attack on the USS Coles but somehow gave George a Free pass. Why is that?

Because we forgot that “United we stand, Divided we fall” But some how we have allowed our selves to become divided.

We Are Divided Only If We Let It.

            Do we not all have at heart the same basic common goals? To take care of our family. To provide them food and shelter. To live in peace. To help our friends when they need help because we know that they would help us when we need it. Is not that one of the basic most important goals in our lives? Security? So how are we so different, when at the core we believe in the same things. We are only different because we have been told we are, but we are not. We have allowed ourselves to be divided forgetting…

We Are Divided Only If We Let It.

            There is an old saying that “ we fear that what we do not know”. I think that in this day and age of global communication we need to expand that belief. We now can know the weather on the other side of the globe in an instant. We can see pictures of another planet in minutes, but we forget that we are all different. We live in a different kind of country. We forget that we are like separate countries, with different ideals and goals joined together to give us strength, but allowing us to be different. Now the media continues to hammer away at our differences as if it’s bad. Different doesn’t mean bad; it simply means that we are different. But the media pushes it in a divisive way, when it’s not.

We Are Divided Only If We Let It.

            When you live out in a rural part of the country you just can’t understand why someone needs to spend years in school with book learning, and can’t hunt a deer. The city dweller can’t understand why you would want to hunt the deer in the first place. Different... Yes. Bad… No. The person in the country plants their vegetable garden and cans their food, they take the time to cook a meal from real food not a box marked “Heat and serve” The city dweller buys it from a store, or a fast food place. Different... Yes. Bad… No. Should it divide us?

We Are Divided Only If We Let It.

As a small child our first instinct is to share. How many times is it that we marvel at a baby when we give them a piece of food, when they are no longer hungry they offer it back to us, and we say “isn’t that cute they want to share with us.

We all need to find that child inside of us again. To stand together with our many differences and find that common ground. To reclaim the country bequeath to us, “We the people”, by our Founding Fathers. To rekindle their spirit and remember that this great experiment of a country, governed by the people and for the people can survive. That, “We the people” are America, and we are taking it back from the 1*Neo-cons. Once again. “That we the people” can govern ourselves. Because when “We the people govern ourselves we all do better economically and socially, that we are a nation that the world looks up to for leadership and guidance. That we are the nation where dreams not only come true but where dreams of tomorrow are born. We need to show the world that the great experiment was not in vein that we do remember…

“United We Stand”.

1* Neo-con is a shortened version of neo-conservatism.

ne·o·con·ser·va·tism also ne·o-con·ser·va·tism (nē´ō-kən-sûrʹvə-tĭz´əm) noun
An intellectual and political movement in favor of political, economic, and social conservatism that arose in opposition to the perceived liberalism of the 1960's: “The neo-conservatism of the 1980s is a replay of the New Conservatism of the 1950s, which was itself a replay of the New Era philosophy of the 1920s” (Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.).  [2]

Of all the enemies of true liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.

War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.

In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people.

The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manner and of morals, engendered in both.

No nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.

War is in fact the true nurse of executive aggrandizement. In war, a physical force is to be created; and it is the executive will, which is to direct it.

In war, the public treasuries are to be unlocked; and it is the executive hand which is to dispense them.

In war, the honors and emoluments of office are to be multiplied; and it is the executive patronage under which they are to be enjoyed; and it is the executive brow they are to encircle.

The strongest passions and most dangerous weaknesses of the human breast; ambition, avarice, vanity, the honorable or venal love of fame, are all in conspiracy against the desire and duty of peace.

--James Madison, from "Political Observations," April 20, 1795 in Letters and Other Writings of James Madison, Volume IV, page 491.


No Outrage Here!

When I see a BUSINESS that has elaborate buildings, and Shiny new equipment every other year I have no problem with that… So long as the wealth that was created by the workers is fairly distributed amongst those that helped, NO not helped, those that actually created the wealth in the first place, by beeing the ones that actually built the products sold.

Just because someone had an idea to make a Car, why should they continue to pay slave wages for the labor that creates THEIR PRODUCT, FOR IF IT WAS NOT FOR LABOR THERE WOULD BE NO CAR TO BEGIN WITH. Do you think that Henry Ford would or could build his Model “T” by himself, and if he did how many cars do you think he would have made if it weren’t for labor. Labor is every bit as important if not more so for without labor to create the item, their items would only be an IDEA, yet to become a Reality.

How much longer must we hold a majority of the labor force captive to near slavery existence, while a hand full of people take the lions share of the profits for themselves.

How much longer do we allow the cannibals to eat our life force, In the name of profit, and give us little to nothing for it? 

When will we realize that we are becoming the CANNIBALS!

 Yes you heard me, “We Are Becoming The Cannibals”…


NOT ME You Say!

But You Are.


Every time you buy into the lie that unions are destroying America by wanting to high a wage.

STOP AND THINK about that logic You bitch that a union person gets paid an average of $50 bucks an hour with bennies which comes to around $100,000.00 a year and of which they pay 35% in taxes so they actually get to keep $65,000 thousand dollars…well not exactly $65,000, don’t forget part of that $65,000 is their cost of healthcare which is paid directly to the insurance company. So when all is said and done they wind up with about $55,000… FOR ONE YEAR!!!

BUT YOU NEVER BITCH, that the Ceo’s of these companies making $5 million, $10 million, or in the case of William McGuire who took home a 1.7 Billion in just one bonus for one year... that's $6,538,461. a day. Yes that's not a typo I said 6 and a half MILLION dollars a day.  Did I mention that "Will" was a Ceo for an insurance company?

The only responsibility of his company has is to pay your doctor…he sells medical insurance and gets $6 1/2 million bucks a day, and tells you that your Brest cancer isn't covered, "Pre-existing" thing you know.

No outrage there, but that dam union guy making $50 bucks an hour needs to be drawn and quartered.

Now how can you justify your anger at a union wage, when the very same talking heads that are condemning a union salary of $400 bucks a day while they get paid $7,693 dollars a day to “READ The NEWS”. That's  an hour The days of Cronkite and Mural actually finding and writing the tough investigative news on things that matter other than what blond girl is missing are gone on most mainstream news.

You become a cannibal, every time you go to Communist Red China’s outlet store, WALL-MART, which led the way to off-shoring American Jobs.

Every Time you don’t even TRY to buy an American Made Product.

Every time you think that someone else’s labor is worth less then yours.


Do you think your life is less valuable then say your Boss, or better yet that old guy that sells you your coffee and a roll in the morning?

If you come up with any other answer than the same, you are well on your way to becoming a cannibal. 

So With that in mind if you think that you can be more valuable then the old guy selling you your coffee and roll, then you must be less valuable then your boss, and when will it be acceptable to have your lungs and heart cut out to “Donate” to your sick boss?

01-20-10   Was This Special Election In Mass The Second Boston Tea Party... To stop the corporate manipulation of our very life and death, in a system we like to call "HealthCare". It's more like "Wealth Care" for the CEO's of these insurance companies, and for "Excessive" profit medical system.

Brown made no bones about saying that if he was elected he would vote to kill the current Health care bill... and just maybe that is exactly what a large part of the voters wanted, now that the bill had no "Single Payer" like Medicare, or "Public Option", that in all polls show that over 70% of the country wants.

We Will Fight Them Over There... A Lesson In History

By: William A. Peary, Founder and Editor Of Founding

Published  10-17-06 

There is a saying that goes something like this, "those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it".

This administration continues to try to instill fear in everyone with the tired old bumper sticker slogan, "We will fight them over there so we won't have to fight them over here". This is not the first time, nor I fear it will be the last time a line like this will be used, to not only instill fear but to also imply that the purveyor of the statement has the divine power to protect you. 

Well thought out history the purveyors of this thinking never did... nor will they now.

There was a time in our recent past when the French were presented with just that same problem. It was just after World War l and France felt the need to protect themselves from Germany. The decision was to build a line of heavy fortification at their eastern border with Germany and Belgium. The line consisted of concrete fortifications, tank obstacles, machine gun posts and other defenses. There were interconnecting bunkers the entire length of the line. It cost the French government over 3 Billion Franks.

You could say that France wanted to Fight them over there (at the entrenched fortifications) rather than Fight them over here (in the streets of Paris). 

As any student of history can tell you the very name of the project became synonymous with the word " *Folly".

You see when the German army decided to attack France they looked at the "Maginot Line" and decided to just go around it.

On 911 not one single person got on a plane anywhere in Iraq, in fact they didn't even learn how to fly a plane in Iraq, they came here through Pakistan and learned how to fly here, in Florida.

So just stop and think for one minute,  if someone wanted to attack America do you think that they are going to say to them selves...

 " I need to get a ticket to Baghdad Airport so I can go to America"?

I think not.

The "We need to fight them over there"... in Iraq... History will show was just another *Folly.

With a Extremely high price tag In Human Life, and money.

*Folly: Folly is also a synonym for foolishness; see stupidity
