GOP Congressman Peter King repeatedly did just that, hailing Obama’s use of drones, assassination of a U.S. citizen with no due process, his upholding of indefinite detention powers, and the truncating of Miranda rights in terrorism cases.
GOP Senator Lindsey Graham — who has advocated bombing more Muslim countries in the last decade than he has fingers — said that he prefers Obama’s foreign policy over Rand Paul’s.
A bipartisan coalition of Congressional outsiders tried in late 2013 to defund the NSA domestic spying program and almost succeeded, but the union of the parties’ establishments — the Obama White House, John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi — whipped up just enough votes to protect the program.
NSA mass surveillance has been particularly embraced by many Democrats because it was Obama doing it (as I’ve said before, if Edward Snowden had leaked this information when a Republican was in the Oval Office, there would be a massive statue erected of him outside of the MSNBC studios, where he is now often vilified). And now, Jeb Bush (in contrast to Rand Paul, who vowed to end NSA spying “on Day One”) has declared himself fully in support of mass surveillance, even hailing Obama for expanding these capabilities.”

And new corporate cons are on the same page as Obama. Hillary, Jeb Bush, Bernie and Trump all endorse American and Israeli aggression, are OK with murders in Gaza, are not responsive to constitutional issues with the Patriot Act and are willing to accept unarmed casualties at home and innocents dying in multiple wars for profit.
The war parties have betrayed everyday people for the past 45 years. We must secure Peace to invest in People and a healing Planet.
Jill Stein would have shut down dozens of wars of choice, including the ongoing brutality in Gaza and the West Bank. The last six angry and militant men have crippled this nation. We can still profit by putting a capable, professional woman (and distinguished physician) in the White House.
This doctor has the cure, was ahead of her time and may be just who we need.
Dr. Jill Stein can provide critical transitions from exporting munitions, terror and war… to exporting knowledge, technology and medical and agricultural expertise… along with peace in our time.
Stein was endorsed for President by Noam Chomsky, a linguist, author and activist, and by Chris Hedges, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and war correspondent, among others. She is as real as it gets.”
The difference between Dr. Jill Stein…
and Bernie Sanders, Don Trump, Hillary Clinton and the rest of the war party pretenders…
…is the difference between peace and war.
Dr. Jill Stein:
“Don’t let them talk you out of your power. They want you to think that you are powerless, that you have to go to the polls and vote for one of the Wall Street sponsored candidates. But, remember, what that means is not just wasting your vote on more of what’s hurting you, it’s actually using your vote as a weapon against yourself. In fact, you are the most powerful thing out there.”
~Dr. Jill Stein
We looked her in the eye and discussed myriad issues. She is informed, brilliant, pragmatic, realistic, resourceful and strategic. Her world view eclipses the profiteering and wars about extraction orchestrated by our last six American presidents. It is about time we have a competent leader who can secure the peace.
We can shine with Stein or other Greens representing the Real Green Party New Deal about Peace, People and a healing Planet. And we have everything on the line.
The American people need to turn their backs on the corporate welfare parties and walk the talk. We need real debates among all candidates regardless of party. Intelligent and informed truth-telling candidates will blow the corporate cons out of the water. So orchestrated debates avoid issues.
We need independent, intelligent leaders with courage, vision, and values. And we need to look to 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th parties not bought and paid for by the Fortune 500.
If you are tired of wage theft, slave labor and working poverty… abandon the corporate cons and war-profiteers who have brought us 31 unnecessary and unwinnable wars…. along with joblessness, and recession The nation has been bankrupt since the middle of Obama’s second term. And we are sinking fast.
It is time to stand firm.
This next election, we must send a message.
Write letters, provide options, explore solutions and let us know what our tactics must be to take back the nation.
