Agitate, Educate, and Organize ~OO~
Hillary Clinton blasts ‘unfair’ world reaction over Gaza, cites …“Former US secretary of state and potential presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton issued a staunch defense of Israel over its conduct of the war against Hamas, placed full ultimate responsibility on Hamas for the deaths of children and other innocent people, and defended Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s insistence on maintaining security control in the West Bank in the next few years.:
In defending Israeli attacks on Gaza, Bernie Sanders said “you have situation where Hamas is sending missiles into Israel,” adding that those rockets are often originating from populated areas. As members of his audience began to shout out their opposition to his statements, Sanders responded, “Excuse me! Shut up! You don’t have the microphone.”
Unnecessary American Wars Abroad
(Hillary Clinton) is more hawkish than Obama and seems likely to get the US heavily involved in the region again. It is not clear that she would actually do anything about continued illegal Israeli squatting on Occupied Palestinian land.
Clinton’s comments, along with those of ex-CIA and Pentagon head Leon Panetta—”I think we’re looking at kind of a 30-year war”—show that “any doubts about whether Endless War – literally – is official American doctrine should be permanently erased,” Glenn Greenwald writes at The Intercept.
The attack on Kosovo is hardly the extent of (Bernie) Sanders‘ hawkishness. While it’s true he voted against the Iraq War, he also voted in favor of authorizing funds for that war and the one in Afghanistan. More recently, he voted in favor of a $1 billion aid package for the coup government in Ukraine and supported Israel’s assault on Gaza.
Dr. Jill Stein has better ideas: a plan to secure the peace and turn the ship of state:
“Our Power to the People Plan lays out these solutions in a blueprint to move our economy from the greed and exploitation of corporate capitalism to a human-centered system that puts people, planet and peace over profit. This plan would end unemployment and poverty; avert climate catastrophe; build a sustainable, just economy; and recognize the dignity and human rights of everyone in our society. The plan affirms that we have the power to take our future back:
We have the power to create a Green New Deal, providing millions of jobs by transitioning to 100% clean renewable energy by 2030.
We have the power to provide to a living-wage job and workers rights for every American.
We have the power to end poverty and guarantee economic human rights.
We have the power to make health-care a human right through an improved Medicare for All system.
We have the power to provide education as a right and abolish student debt.
We have the power to create a just economy.
We have the power to protect Mother Earth.
We have the power to end institutional racism, police brutality and mass incarceration.
We have the power to restore our Constitutional rights.
We have the power to end our wars of aggression, close foreign bases and cut military expenditures 50%
We have the power to empower the people.”
It is time, with this new declaration of independence from the corporate cons, that we take back this nation, and our lives, from these pretenders. Viva la revolution!
