Before the US invasion, Libya had been one of the world’s top Oil producers. Hmm… Though many Africans saw Gaddafi as a unifier of Africa, and though [as per Levis] people throughout Africa protested Black Libyans being wiped out by Obama’s Al Qaeda Terrorist Mercenaries, Obama’s former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was videotaped gloating about conquest and laughing uproariously at Gaddafi’s Murder via Torture. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fgcd1ghag5Y
Obama’s (and Clinton’s) Reign of Terror continues still in Libya, as persons who worked with the previous Government are being hunted down and Murdered by the US side. We’ll have a LIVE interactive interview in the comments below with a Libyan still in that country, who knows US Assassination victims Murdered last week. She is bravely trying to get word out.
At yesterday’s international climate conference in Poland, delegates of all of the African nations there walked out of the summit when the announcement came that President Obama didn’t want to hear their concerns for at least another couple of years. G-77, the negotiating group that walked out, represents two-thirds of the world’s nations, and 80% of its people. This wanton intentional environment destruction, and the weapons that the Obama Administration are pouring into Africa, are part of the Genocide too.
We shall also have an interactive interview with Levis Solitei Ole Parnyombe of the Maasai tribe, Maa Civil Society and Occupy Kenya. You, readers, can leave questions or comments for either guest, in real time.
Levis Solitei Ole Parnyombe:
~~The United States of Africa, a concept for federation of 55 sovereign African states, is the most prodigious, intelligent, prospicient and indeed timely inkling Africans ever thought of. The idea was first brought to the fore and advanced by Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi during his stint as chairperson for the African Union (AU). The then AU Chair contemplated the federalist states at the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa for what he termed as blasted expectations by AU to bulldoggishly exasperate for Africa’s and Africans’ space and place in the global world. The Libyan leader emphatically avouched that only true African states can shape up their own destiny and bring to reality own stability and wealth to the continent.
~~African leaders, unanimously bought this acumen with the amenability and avid belief that peace, love, unity and freedom was veraciously feasible in a reborn African continent under the auspices of the federalism. Being a good student of history and of course developed bubbling interests in the various goings-on in Africa and beyond, nothing enkindles my admirations more than the talk of the Union and merger of African states into African United States. History has that the name United States of Africa was coined by Marcus Garvey in his poem ‘Hail, United States of Africa’ in 1924; an idea that gave birth to the Pan-Africanist movement in 1945.
~~This movement caused ‘earthquakes’ in the continent at the height of the unquenchable thirst for freedom and struggle to liberate the African continent from the paws and claws of colonialism. Pan-Africanism was led by epic freedom fighters in Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, our own founding father and first President of Kenya, Jomo Kenyatta, Patrice Lumumba of Congo and the indomitable lion that warded off incursion into his territory by the wolves in white skin called colonialists; Haile Selassie of Ethiopia; all of whom steered their respective nations to independence.
~~However, Ethiopia was never colonized and Perhaps the historical worship by Rastafarians of the nation and indeed Selassie has some connotation with this valiant streak the hero demonstrated. Then came the plainspoken General Gaddafi who crisscrossed the African continent with a clarion call and slogan of UNITY that sparked a frenzy of excitement, boldness and belief in African ingenuity to match, in every sense of the word, developed world economies and democracies.
~~Though Gaddafi succumbed to Libyan agents of foreign masters of discord who felt threatened by the General Gaddafi’s revivification of the sure as fate Pan-Africanist spirit that liberated Africa from monstrous colonialism in the 1960s; the spirit of the fallen son of African soil instilled in us, lives on. It pensively dampens my spirit that Gaddafi assassins are the very people he endeared his whole life to serve and protect with all the venom.
~~The stool pigeons and cohorts of American slave drivers inveigled this greatest African to his untimely death under the guise of fighting authoritarianism and according democracy space in Libya. The incontrovertible truth remains; the Obama administration grew excessively glutinous and gluttonous of the inexhaustible Libyan oil fields that Gaddafi successfully parried the ‘predators’ from, a thing that left Obama and his figureheads with no option but remove the stumbling block that proscribed accessibility to the oil.
~~I dare and typically say Gaddafi made Libya a small heaven on earth and there’s damning corroboration for this. Libyans are now ruefully reaping the soar grapes of American brainwashing and artful implants of hidden motives. Libyans’ silly and mindless indulgence to aid America’s veil of secrecy to kill their ‘god’ has caused their nation inordinately as it has never known peace since. May the soul of the valiant African Rest in eternal peace.
~~Gaddafi was not alone though. Yoweri Museveni of Uganda among other Heads of African States, was his aide-de-camp in the Union advocacy. The Ugandan President’s tough and uncompromising stand against western obsessive thought that they have a right to control and loot African resources, micromanage our affairs and patronage on our leaders; has put him at loggerheads with the western oligarchs but the black man is not ceding an inch. He’s a daredevil that exemplifies true African brave warrior.
~~Though somehow resuscitation efforts got chequered with Gaddafi’s demise, it never sounded a death-knell to African resolution. A new generation is in the rise, a generation that is acutely aggressive and noble. They draw their conviction from the continent’s renowned liberators, a contriving creation altruism, climbing down their high horses and endearing their energies, efforts, travails and resources in fending off western imperialism and advance Africa’s second liberation. I even chuffed by this mellowing and well-founded Africanist spirit radiated across the African continent.
~~Innocuously, my President, Uhuru Kenyatta – son to Kenya’s founding president – has recently rejuvenated this great spirit in the wake of the ICC bugaboo that has opened its venomous-tongued gape to devour not just him, his deputy and Kenya’s sovereignty but also Africa’s freedom. In a recent African Union Extraordinary Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, President Uhuru bared it all to the despots. He went bare knuckle and scathingly rebuffed western arrogance, intimidation and unfathomable denigration against Africans.
~~The President in a purely African and emancipating speech quipped ‘Whilst we have been divided and incited against one another before, we are now united and more peaceful’. He continued ‘The founding fathers of African Unity were conscious that structural colonialism takes many forms, some blatant and extreme, like apartheid, while others are subtler and deceptively innocuous, like some development assistance’. I cannot agree with him more. Foreign assistance and the pretensions to police the world, is the cloak under which the US and UK have unabettedly perpetuated atrocities against guiltless people.
~~As Uhuru holds ‘it’s thus necessary for African leaders to constantly watch out against threats to our peoples’ sovereignty and unity’, we must jealously guard our territorial confinement at all cost and with all the armoury at our disposal. If there’s ever a time the African states united and forged the foreglimpsed federalism, then it’s now, to pugnaciously accord Africans the dignity they rightfully deserve from all and parry the blandishments of those who have drunk from the bitter and venomous cup of imperialism.
~~ICC itself is a western tool, in fact, an abattoir and Guantanamo Bay meant to teach Africans a lesson and make us tow the western line. Africans are not any lesser beings than anyone in this whole world and our rights, freedoms, recognition and dignity is second to none. The renewal of the African spirit to unite and ravenously protect our sovereignty as bluntly furthered by my president, is indeed a well-seasoned move to brush aside western bromidic baloney, bestial stunts, hellish lordiness, incorrigible injudiciousness and contemptible haughtiness.
~~We are no pushovers to any person, state or continent. Africa should thus remorselessly forthwith severe links with any institutions like ICC that long stopped being a place of justice the day it become a toy of declining imperial powers that are hell-bent to cynicism and hunger in furtherance of geopolitical ends.
~~Africans have been plunged into a painfully ridiculous dumb show, a travesty of justice that adds pain to our licking wounds from humiliation. We say not anymore. Not again. Our trepidations should strengthen us even more and emboldened our resolve to free our people and nations from the shackles and thralls of serfdom to neocolonialism. Africa is NOT a third-rate world, we are NOT a sub class of people.
~~President Uhuru has invoked the spirit of freedom and unity not just to the African presidents but also to all patriotic Africans in the continent. Our unity is thus not a fallacy nor is the African Union a mirage or dream of apparition. It’s indeed a reality that has finally dawned on us. We must embrace it not for us but for the generations behind us not to be subjected to excruciating pain like we have.
~~They may threaten us, slap us with sanctions and even kill our heroes. They may nip our leaders like they did to anti-West like Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and even Zimbabwean Mugabe. But that’s the ultimate price to pay, it will only serve fodder to our relentlessness, concert our efforts to greater heights and revolutionize our intuitiveness to free our people from captivity. Bob Marley said how long shall they kill our prophets while we stand aside and look?
~~Like the Libyans, little do those of us brainwashed to western delusions know that the enemy will stand aside and look while we slaughter, kill our own brothers knowing we are all victims of western grapes of wrath. Libyans are killing each other, so are Egyptians, Malians, Afghanis, Syrians, Tunisians. They want the same for Kenyans but we are now more conscientious than ever before
~~Africans are much awakened now from the patient silence, aloofness, doldrums, abeyance and heavy burden of stomaching evils and maggots of the western autocrats. African Union and indeed United States of Africa is our lifeline and our leaders must move in hasty manner to ratify the federalism.
~~I reiterate Our unity is not lie and realisation of African States union is not illusive, it’s a extroversion of our a dream-turned-reality overture. Africa is on the rise and no one can clump us down. No amounts of spitting by the pythons can deter us. We are soaring high like eagles, roaring like lions. Our conviction is insurmountable.
~~An African union that takes no dogshit from no one is on its birth and its debut to virulently protect its land and people is in the offing. We are the result of this creation, our minds unclouded, our intuition and acts clearheaded. We are unstoppable. Africa has finally got its bona fide and true sons and daughters who cannot be cheapened by the proverbial western peanuts and beguiling smidgeons to traitorously betray our land and people, instead we slap them on their filthy faces and serve them with an above board fidelity.
~~Second Liberation is brewing, at its full-blown stage ready to submerge our foes with the overflowing volcanic eruptions and overflowing magma. This is real. Watch the space. Long live my mother land of Africa.
And here is the voice of a woman in Libya, calling out to us. She will be on LIVE here at 10am US East Coast Time (1pm West Coast).
“I will be talking about my country, especially my city (Derna). What happening is really horrible. People kill each other in our country since the revolution till now the weapons in everywhere.”
Feel free to educate yourselves and interact with our African sister and brother here. They want and need to hear from us. Let’s not ignore them.
We are honored to have a LIVE Interactive Interview below with both our guests, one in Nairobi, Kenya, and the other in Derna, Libya.
LIVE Interactive with Occupy Kenya Activist: Obama Administrative Coup to Oust Elected President – by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
Through his underlings President Obama led an Administrative Coup toppling the authority of Kenya’s Government and its legally elected President at a UN proceeding days ago. Other African leaders tried to prevent the dangerous precedent of White colonialists being reinstalled by the US and its UN puppets, France and Britain.
By abstaining at a UN meeting in Europe [not Africa], the three White Colonial Powers (WCPs) set in motion a procedural measure to bring Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta, elected in 2013, to trial in a White majority country. (Would the African Union be allowed to depose and try a criminal US or European head of state in Africa? Of course not.)
This demand clearly violates Kenya’s sovereignty. Will Obama attack militarily to steal its Oil and Gas if Kenya doesn’t surrender its legally elected President?
The WCPs are attempting to assert their assumed right to remove any African leader elected in their former domains who doesn’t do what he’s told. Soon you’ll hear from an activist of Occupy Kenya in an interactive interview, with his take on the situation. The African Union demanded that the trial be delayed while Kenyatta is in office.
The African Union countries comprise 98% of Africa’s population and 97% of the continent’s area (all except the Northwest and Southeast corners, respectively, Western Sahara and Madagascar). African countries Could stop cooperating with the International Criminal Court, now that it is violating the UN’s own rules on the rights of nations, in a patently Racist way.
Is any President in the world more obviously a criminal than our own? His tour of Africa urged Africans to join the ‘Natural Gas Boom,’ the burning of which would mean death for millions of Africans, because of the climate change forced by burning that much Fossil Fuel. He urged Fracking in Africa – a toxic and Genocidal technology. Here’s an article from a few months ago at FireDogLake.com showing the real reason for this Administrative Coup.
I must point out [again] that, even though dishonest politicians and salesmen call it “Natural Gas,” it really is and originally called “Petroleum Gas.” Burning Fossil Fuels adds Carbon Dioxide (CO2) to the Atmosphere, causing Global Warming.
Petroleum Oil and Coal deposits are accompanied by pockets of Methane and related Greenhouse Gases (GHGs). Fracking is worse than other types of Mining, but Oil Drilling or Coal Mining or Gas extraction always cause massive leakage of Methane, which is an exponentially worse GHG than CO2.
Fracking permanently ruins the land and permanently pollutes the groundwater, both Genocidal practices. But Hydraulically Fracturing (Fracking) the aquifer also kills the indigenous people, animals, and plants while destroying the water table. President Obama and his European two lackeys should themselves be tried before the ICC, if it were an honest body.
In fact, much more Natural Gas – actually natural – can be obtained much quicker and cheaper, and millions of times safer, simply by growing fields of Hemp (the plant with by far the highest biomass per acre/hectare):
A Lund University study in Sweden proved just that. Burning Methane derived from plant sources in this way causes NO Global Warming. So, if we were serious about using Methane as the fuel of the future, we can do it without destroying land, overthrowing Presidents, or committing Genocide. Again, from FireDogLake.com:
Here are the words of Levis Solitei Ole Parnyombe of the famed and important Maasai Tribe. Should they be forcibly moved, for Fossil Fuel profit? Of course not! Levis is with Maa Civil Society and Occupy Kenya.
“The United Nations Security Council resolution to veto Kenyan ICC case deferment quest, is the most autocratic, fucked up and misplaced act of race hunting. It’s a continuation of the western underestimation of Blacks. It’s time the African Union unequivocally middle fingers all International Institutions controlled by the 3 matriarchal western states (read USA, Britain and France). For how long should we be treated nonentities and third-raters by these recalcitrant contemptuous states? For how long should we lie low like antelopes in pursuit of nonextant and unyielding fairness? Not anymore! My black race is subjected to unfair targeting, profiling and pushed to helotry. Africans are victimized for our up in the arms, tenacity, unintermitting ethos and blatant refusal to bow down to the west and tow their line! We are recipients of western grapes of wrath! Time comes we stood our grounds, to put our feet of long standing on the ground and ward”
Now, we are honored to have Levis Solitei Ole Parnyombe with us Live From Africa, to give his thoughts on the undermining of his country’s sovereignty, and to answer our questions. Leave your questions below as comments.
A New York Times reporter revealed that President Obama and Mitt Romney (Obama’s 2012 Presidential Election Fraud co-conspirator) shook them down, and demanded and received Bribes from the Times, the Washington Post, and Bloomberg News. The Bribe is that the Times, the Post, Bloomberg, and many other media outlets Bribe Obama (and his partner Romney) by letting them censor news stories. It seems that Woodward (legendary for bringing down Richard Nixon in the Watergate scandal) (played by Robert Redford) violated the Bribery agreement his paper had with President Obama by not giving the President final say over what the newspaper publishes about him. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/07/21/ny-times-bribes-obama-and-romney-after-campaigns-demand-it/
When you violate an agreement with the world’s most prolific, remorseless, and bloodthirsty Mass Murdering hitman, you’re treading on thin ice. Obama claims “We don’t Torture,” but he belies that by refusing to investigate or prosecute Torture. President Obama and his Murderous henchman John Brennan have Murdered lots of defenseless children with Coward Drones already this year. It was brave what you did. Our prayers are with you, Bob.
Emancipation — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
(This is written by Western Massachusetts activist Terry Franklin.)
Prohibition is ending. One can feel it in the air. The elections in Colorado and Washington show that “the cork is starting to move.” In the metaphor from the ending of our earlier Prohibition of alcohol, the champagne bottle’s cork is slowly but steadily getting ready to pop. Soon we will be looking back at our current policies with the same level of disbelief, as we do with the witch hunts of the Middle Ages.
This breath of fresh air, so long in coming, gives hope that our society can rise above the desire for scapegoats, the need for politicians who pander to our most hateful instincts, and our urge to use force and violence against those we disagree with — for that is what we authorize when we make something a matter of criminal law. Richard Nixon’s “War on Drugs,” which began as a thinly-veiled assault on political adversaries, has now resulted in over 30,000,000 arrests for marijuana, over 40,000,000 arrests if you include all “controlled substances.” At any given time, as many black men are — largely for marijuana — under the control of the Criminal Justice Industry — prison, parole, and probation — as were slaves at the time of the Civil War.
Our federal government is in the same position vis-a-vis the states as it was with the Fugitive Slave Act. Colorado, Washington, and the 18 medical marijuana states are in direct confrontation with the Feds over fundamental principles of Liberty.
How repressive will the Feds be in this? What is Mr. Obama planning to do? His record last year was terrible, an acquiescence in policies designed to create enormous human misery. But he is faced with a unique opportunity to change his ways. It’s a new day, and the leadership role on this issue is sitting there, open for his use.
The most hopeful thing he could do, would be to expend some political capital, and work with Congress to bring a complete end to Prohibition. Short of that however, there is one thing he can do today with a stroke of his pen. Mr. Obama can issue pardons to those in federal prison, and to those previously convicted whose lives have been so negatively impacted by their criminal record.
It is true that his clemency powers cover only the federal system, while many of this War’s victims suffer at the state level. Here too though, his leadership can be effective, setting an example for governors, encouraging them to follow the right path. On January 1st, 1863, President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. January 1st, this year, marked the sesquicentennial. What finer tribute, and show of decency could there be, than to act now?
Child Murderer-in-Chief Announces Hateful Cuts, Issues Veiled Warning Threat to First Graders — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
Today it’s not just me: Glenn Greenwald and George Monbiot both called President Obama a Child Murderer. Obama has killed 9 times as many children with Drones as the Sandy Hook shooter did, and has shown NO remorse. In fact, he laughs and jokes about killing children with Coward Drones.
In Hateful anti-child Propaganda [reminiscent of 1984's newspeak], President Obama calls the richer half of the country “the Middle Class.” He calls the emergency life support system that’s keeping poor children alive “entitlements,” with its negative connotation, calculated to make the listener feel that those lazy poor kids are not entitled to anything. Let ‘em wither!
When people are in such dire straits that they need Government assistance just to stay alive, those who are turning off the feeding tubes know they’re killing some of their victims. President Obama knows that further squeezing the poorest of the poor at this critical juncture will kill children. So, I guess he’ll get another big laugh.
If he has studied history and economics, he knows that cutting aid to the very poor is likely to cripple our faltering economy, and to ramp up our current Recession into a devastating decades-long Depression.
Let me mention the obvious: Money and influence from the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other corporate interests control our politicians to a large extent. I think of it as Bribery.
Obama had his spokesperson Jake “the Snake” Carney say that the President supports Oil billionaire Dianne Feinstein’s fake Assault Weapons ban, with 900 exceptions in it. Of course, if Obama and Feinstein were actually serious about limiting gun violence, they would be trying to prosecute Attorney General Eric Holder for supplying weapons to Drug Cartels in Mexico that were then used to Murder cops in this country. Instead they’re Covering Up Operation Fast and Furious. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Holder#Operation_Fast_and_Furious
And in a most troubling development, the President (and other politicians hoping to sweep this shooting under the rug) are pointing at mental health and autism, as if to say: “We don’t have insufficient Gun Control laws in this country, we have insufficient Autism Control laws!” This veiled threat means that he won’t speak out forcefully for banning handguns and Assault Weapons.
It means that school children in this country may soon be as traumatized as President Obama’s victims in Pakistan and Yemen and Somalia, wondering if they’ll be next, if their classroom will win this month’s “Lottery.” I say Obama should not let Congress break for holidays until our children are safe and Assault Weapons and handguns are banned.
Handguns and Assault Weapons are made for Murdering people. They have no legitimate purpose. It is possible that a person buying a gun will use it to protect himself, but it is 100 times more likely that he will Murder with it. The gun seller knows that, and he knows that the buyer is 300 times more likely to kill himself with the gun than to protect himself with it, no matter what he says is the purpose of his purchase.
So, the Obama Administration is not trying to limit gun violence against children. Here’s how you can tell. Australia had a school massacre problem. They ended it by confiscating the offending guns. That’s all it took. Immediately the massacres stopped completely. There hasn’t been another one since then; and that’s 16 years. Australia had lots of gun nuts too, just like we do. But they handled it. With a little less Hatred of children, we could get this done right away. http://www.democracynow.org/2012/12/18/new_town_to_newtown_how_96
Obama’s Forces Launch Chemical Weapon Attack Killing Baby with Poison Gas: The President’s Hateful Policies Against Children — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
President Obama and others keep telling us that there’s an emergency in Syria because the Dictator might have or might get a Chemical Weapon – Poison Gas. But President Obama is already using that Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) against helpless unarmed children in Bahrain.
President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton sent Bahrain’s bloody Fascist Khalifa regime yet more Poisonous Gas after this child was killed, lots more, apparently approving of what you just saw. The Gas killings continue in Bahrain. They’re killing Slaves and they’re killing Shi’a with Poison Gas; and they’re killing Slave children and Shi’a children too. Why does Obama support the Khalifas’ Genocidal behavior in Bahrain? Because he parks the US 5th Fleet in Bahrain’s harbor. http://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/2012/03/19/syria-bahrain-a-tale-of-two-uprisings-one-fabricated-the-other-forgotten/
The US Navy’s 5th Fleet, docked in Bahrain, is famed the world over for its cowardice. In the first place, they work for Obama, and a bully is always a coward. For eleven years, they’ve been carrying out the most cowardly operation in history: The United States, the world’s strongest and most Militarily advanced country, has waged more than a decade of War against Afghanistan, the weakest and most backward country on Earth. Still, Afghanistan kicked the shit out of us, and we will leave there in shame.
And the men and women of the US 5th Fleet are in Bahrain, apparently trembling in their boots, while mass Atrocities go on a few feet away: Gassings; Torture; Doctors, Nurses, Professors, and Journalists rounded up and disappeared; Genocides against multiple ethnic groups. And the US cowards just sit there, instead of helping out the defenseless.
Mass Murders in US schools, beginning with Columbine, take place only when our nation is at War. Twenty-seven days before Columbine, President Clinton began his merciless bombing of Yugoslavia. Propaganda told us that we must wage War there, or else War would start without us, or something like that: They told us we needed War. I bought it, didn’t you? We fell for it.
All the kids heard that. All the kids then knew that the President of the United States, the father figure of our nation, supported killing people indiscriminately, to make his point. The President is our top role model, so kids started taking up guns and acting it out. They will obviously continue to do so with increasing frequency and intensity until one of three things happens: Either until some other role model does something different, or until we stop Warring, or until we stop supplying killers with assault weapons. Obama has made it abundantly clear many times that he wants to make sure that the violently insane still can get machine guns. And it looks like he doesn’t want to stop having War either.
And President Obama has taken this madness far to the Right of any Democrat or Republican in modern history. Certainly no world leader since Hitler has acted as Hatefully toward children as Obama has.
But the worst Psychological Warfare ever deployed against the people of this country was when Barack Obama claimed that he is allowed to order Murders and that’s Legal and OK. That move spread violent insanity throughout the country. It is the President’s responsibility to act like a sane adult. Instead, after our Ambassador was killed in Libya, Obama spewed his deadly Propaganda on the Daily Show – and this may have influenced yesterday’s shootings – saying “I wasn’t confused about the fact that we’re gonna hunt down whoever did it and bring him to justice.” Even Bloomberg’s Mark Miller said that Obama sending Drones back in to Libya in reaction to the Ambassador’s Assassination would be cruel and crazy. Still, Obama did it.
That’s how violently insane and irresponsible our President is: With people like yesterday’s shooter Adam Lanza listening, Obama insisted that, instead of doing something sane, he, our country’s top father figure and main role model, thought hunting down humans was the example he wanted to give people the world over. He, Obama, the man who is allowed to commit Murder any time he wants to, against anybody, anywhere in the world – that he, our President, wants to hunt somebody down, and wants to teach our citizens that hunting people down and killing people is OK, and that it is acceptable behavior.
Adam Lanza killed a lot of kids yesterday, but not nearly as many as Barack Obama did. Now let’s look at some of Obama’s Hateful policies against children.
Late in 2009, Obama’s first year in office, he claimed that he was allowed to order Assassinations, and ordered one against a Somali who had allegedly been involved with an Embassy bombing more than a decade earlier, when he was a child. Obama ordered an Assassination team to Murder him and they did. Since then, they have killed several other Somalis accused of the exact same crime. A few months later, Somali children were trying to stop foreign occupying powers from looting their continent’s mineral wealth. These children were doing what was right for their people, but our Propaganda called them “Pirates.”
Then President Obama started calling them “Pirates.” The shipping companies didn’t know what to do. Obama ordered the children shot dead. The Propaganda called them “Pirates,” the President called them “Pirates,” and if they’re Pirates, it’s OK to Murder them, right? Then came the starvation times: Muslim occupiers were in Somalia’s capital. The US wouldn’t allow food into Mogadishu until the Muslim army left, so thousands of children starved to death. And of course, of all countries in the world, only Obama’s United States and his puppet Somalia agree that it is alright to treat children like that. http://www.amnestyusa.org/our-work/issues/children-s-rights/convention-on-the-rights-of-the-child
Haiti got hit by an earthquake, and only Cuba came to help, then Obama rushed in an occupation force. He promised a billion dollars. (He was lying: The US actually sent no money: Zero!) Our Military blocked Cuba from helping. People had to wait weeks for relief. Obama brought in Nepalese soldiers from the Indus valley, where Cholera has been prevalent since ancient times. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-20024400
Cholera had never been in Haiti before, but now, thanks to Obama, it has killed thousands in Haiti, including lots of kids. Obama (and the Clintons) may someday be charged with Genocide for their actions and inactions in Somalia, Haiti, and Bahrain. They, like Bush and Cheney, may someday be wary of traveling to certain countries or certain states, for fear of arrest.
Obama claims that he is allowed to order Assassinations, and that he is allowed to kill people with Coward Drones, operated by disgraceful cowardly Murderers in the United States, who pose a grave risk to our National Security by their very presence. After killing a Journalist with a Coward Drone in Yemen, the next week, Obama sent another Coward Drone to Murder the man’s 16-year-old son. Guantánamo held too many children, and all of them there were Tortured. Obama said he would close it, but he was lying. http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/25/world/asia/pakistan-us-drone-strikes/index.html
But President Obama’s work that kills the most children is his blocking of progress in climate negotiations, which he did again at this year’s climate conference that just ended in Qatar, near Bahrain. Oil, Fracking, Coal, Natural Gas, they’re all causing massive Global Warming, which will kill lots of kids. But it could be stopped right away, by growing Hemp which has the highest biomass of any plant, and is the world’s richest source of Ethanol and Biodiesel: Both clean fuels that cause no Global Warming. President Obama today indicated that he may not continue to arrest users where Marijuana is Legal, but he has said similar things before, which all turned out to be lies. If we started growing Hemp on a massive scale today, within a few months our country would be energy independent, and emitting no net Greenhouse Gases. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/
So, the Fossil Fuels (Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas) compete with Marijuana. They add billions of tons of CO2 to the air, but Marijuana-based fuels can’t add any, because they hold no fossilized Carbon, only that which the living plant recently absorbed from the atmosphere. And it wouldn’t even take changing a law to get Medical Marijuana Legal: President Obama can do it with the stroke of his pen, an Executive Order. If President Obama doesn’t immediately order Medical Marijuana Legal, lots of people will lose the ability to walk because of Multiple Sclerosis, and some will die from it this year, just like last year and the year before.
And what do you tell your child who lies dying in the hospital from Skin Cancer, because s/he can’t get Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)? (Videos show that RSO destroys Skin Cancer cells and heals the skin, but President Obama is blocking it from even being tested in the United States, because it is made from Marijuana.) Well, here’s what you tell your kid then: “Our President won’t let you have the medicine you need to live: We don’t know if it’s because he’s superstitious about a plant, or if it’s because somebody gave him a lot of money to keep it away from you, or if he just Hates kids.” http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-shooting-response-2012-12
A citizen sighted high-speed Drones flying over Denver, Colorado, and videotaped them. The local Fox TV station taped them too, and asked what they can be. NORAD (the North American Aerospace Defense Command), 70 miles to the South, said it didn’t notice them. Colorado just Legalized Marijuana.
600 miles to the East, at Ft. Leavenworth Federal Prison in Kansas, Political Prisoner Bradley Manning is held indefinitely for whistleblowing: That is, he’s being held – and according to the UN he was Tortured by Obama’s forces – for allegedly protecting his nation from criminal acts committed by President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and others in high Government posts.
On Halloween Amy Goodman reported on Democracy Now! that a US Border Patrol sharpshooter in a helicopter Murdered two Guatemalans on the US-Mexico border because he suspected they were possessing drugs. The report begins at 3:53 of the following clip.
This reminds one of the US DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) massacre Murders of Honduran pregnant women, some men, and at least one child in May, as reported by Goodman and Juan Gonzalez on Democracy Now! These Murder victims were also accused of drug possession by the US. In this case, a US State Department helicopter accompanied the US DEA helicopter from which the US-paid killers shot the poor people. I would like to know if President Obama personally authorized the slaughter of these pregnant women and children, or if he authorized Covering Up their Murders. I would further like to know if Secretary of State Clinton was in the State Department helicopter that participated in the massacre.
I don’t know if President Obama personally gave the order to kill the pregnant women, or if he just generally empowered employees of the DEA and the Border Patrol to Murder anyone suspected of Marijuana possession. One hopes that he didn’t empower US forces to Murder anyone suspected of being Hispanic or Latino, as he appears to have ordered against Muslims and Arabs. Obama’s reign of terror has also brought on the Murders of hundreds of journalists, in both Mexico and Honduras; but that’s a story for a different article.
Most drug enforcement efforts in this country and Mexico are aimed at Marijuana. In the Honduras massacre, the suspicion may have been Marijuana, Hashish, or Cocaine. Murdering people on suspicion of anything is an Atrocity, and in the two cases cited above, these were War Crimes, committed by our Government, apparently shielded from prosecution by our President and by Attorney General Eric Holder. The Murderers had no right to kill these people. Even if President Obama gave the DEA and Border Patrol permission to kill any suspected drug possessors or Latinos, even if Obama did that, these barbaric killers of the DEA and Border Patrol still need to be arrested for Murder. All of them.
Why does President Obama push to have people who may be possessing Marijuana killed? Why does he block Skin Cancer patients from access to the malady’s anecdotal cure, Rick Simpson Oil? What does President Obama have to gain by subjecting Skin Cancer to painful and unnecessary deaths? Is it because Marijuana can be grown in such a way and in such quantities that it can replace all our Petroleum, Coal, and Nuclear Power usage with Clean Energy that does not emit any Greenhouse Gases? Yes it is: Why? Money.
President Obama claims that he wants the United States to be Energy Independent, but that’s obviously a lie: As cited below, Lund University in Sweden proved Jack Herer’s hypothesis that, by growing Cannabis Hemp (Marijuana) on just 6% of our arable land, we can be Energy Independent on Hempen Clean Fuels in just two months, and we, the United States, would then no longer be contributing to Global Warming. What’s more, by no longer importing Petroleum or Petroleum products, we can instantly flip our disastrous Trade Deficit into a Trade Surplus – because our Petroleum-related imports are larger than our Trade Deficit.
President Obama yesterday said that his Administration has not done enough to address Climate Change. As far as I know, that is the only true statement he has ever made relating to Climate Science: Remember the Debate, when he Superstitiously bragged that he had laid enough Pipe to wrap the world with Oil and Gas Pipelines too many times? Remember the Debate, when he Superstitiously ridiculed his opponent Mitt Romney for once blocking a filthy Coal-burning plant from killing more children?
Remember the last two years’ ANOHOs (Annual Northeast Obama Hurricanes in October)? Obama learned by December 2010 (at the latest) at the Copenhagen Climate Conference that Earth’s climate had reached its tipping point. But instead of doing something about it, he pumped enough Oil and laid enough Pipe and Mined enough Coal to cause the biggest hurricane of all time, Superstorm Sandy.
But with President Obama’s program of selling out US citizens on Global Warming to make more money for BP and his other Oily cronies, next year’s ANOHO will very likely be an even bigger Superstorm than Sandy!
With President Obama’s insane, stupid, and expensive Bribery idea of pumping Petroleum through a giant Pipeline to Texas(!) [which already has plenty of Oil], he remains in complete denial of Global Warming: The most anti-science President we’ve ever had, and just at the time that we need a President who can tell the truth about Climate Change without having to consider how big a Bribe BP is going to give him and his Interior Secretary, Ken “Horse Burgers” Salazar.
Speaking of BP, looks like they just made a ridiculous deal. As reported here at FDL at the time, BP was ‘paying people off’ by paying them only the estimate of what they would have earned in two years without the BP Oil Spew in the Gulf of Mexico. But many of these people lost something worth many times that much, for their families had fished the Gulf for generations. They lost the family business, and BP, with Obama’s help, paid them a disgraceful pittance. Also, the Coast Guard was supposed to protect our coast, and should have prevented that Chemical Company from spraying that toxic Dispersant, which may have permanently ruined Gulf waters, including the seafood.
David Letterman last night, when introducing Steely Dan’s Donald Fagan to perform his new song Fix the Weather in the World, said “I was into Steely Dan. I’d smoke a lot of weed.” His band director Paul Schaefer seemed to agree: “That was you!” Letterman confirmed: “That was me!” One must hope, for his own safety, that President Obama and the DEA don’t suspect that Letterman is now in possession of pot. But even if he is, Leave him alone, Mr. President!
Tomorrow, the Green-Rainbow Party will hold its Convention in Worcester, Massachusetts, beginning at 9 am. 2012 Presidential candidate Jill Stein will speak there, and 2012 Green Vice Presidential nominee Cheri Honkala will be the Keynote Speaker. You should attend if you can. And if you’re passing through Western Massachusetts on the way to Worcester, and you’d like to carpool, please let me know, because, otherwise, I’ll be on my way walking. But I’ll be there at the Convention for sure, I wouldn’t miss it. Giant Green Women From Earth!
(UPDATE: This part is over: It was a smashing success!)
A Very Disappointing “Peace” & “Justice” “Coalition” “Attempt” — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
I just came from a meeting. At the Friends Meeting House. A political meeting. Of radicals, so to speak. The local Left, showing up in Northampton, Mass. Peace and justice issues. Thirty-five or so activists. Real dedicated people.
You know, it’s impressive and inspiring to see and hear dedicated activists who’ve worked hard through many decades, and even through the Obama years, unflinching. (Let’s see, just a minute, let me do the math…) Okay: I’m 57; and I was one of the youngest people in the room. Someone quoted the completely non-commercial songwriter Charlie King (who wrote the legendary Vaguely Reminiscent of the Sixties), and nobody even asked “Charlie who?” But, something was missing. Why were so few young people there?
There was an Election Tuesday. President Obama was reelected. Here in Massachusetts, voters replaced pliable incumbent Republican Scott Brown with hawkish Democrat Elizabeth Warren. Massachusetts also saw one of the nation’s biggest landslides Tuesday:
In a binding Referendum, Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly Legalized Medical Marijuana, voting 63%-37% in favor of the new law, which takes effect in early 2013. In a previous Election, the state voted by a similar margin to instruct all of its elected representatives to work to Legalize Marijuana. Massachusetts US Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren said (in her Debate against Brown) that on this issue she will defy the will of the people who elected her, and will refuse to strive for Marijuana Legalization.
Because of that, I couldn’t vote for her, I mean, if she’s going to snub our democratic process and not protect our Rights, well, as George Wither wrote 400 years ago in Shall I Wasting in Despair, “…But if she be not so for me, What care I how fair she be?”
Back to the meeting: There were several cool people there, and some important Progressive organizations were represented. Jill Stein’s 2010 Gubernatorial running mate Rick Purcell was one of the speakers. Former Political Prisoner Paki Wieland was there, fresh from her courageous trip to Pakistan to witness Obama’s Coward Drone Murder regime for herself. (At least it wasn’t like in Bahrain, where Obama’s thugs detained her immediately before one of Bahrain’s infamous ‘Torture-the-protesters’ crackdowns in March.)
The Murderous Obama-backed Fascist Khalifa regime was then running, and now continues to run Genocide programs (Pogroms) against Bahrain’s Shi’a Muslim majority, and against its South Asian Slaves (which far outnumber the citizens). The Obama Government’s Genocidal Murders in Bahrain are often carried out with Poison Gas paid for by US taxpayers. Hurry, hurry, don’t look, walk fast, nothing to see here.
It’s the deplorable, anti-Semitic Genocide in Bahrain that gets more noticed in the limited news coverage; but most reporters don’t use the words Genocide or Pogrom – though the more honest ones do. (Google it if you care to.) Yes, it’s the horrific anti-Semitic Genocide that gets the more notice, because the Semitic Arabs are citizens and they’re protesting; however, I think the anti-Slave Genocide is just as bad. But, maybe that’s just me.
In fact, I don’t even think they should have Slaves. I think it was Archie Bunker who said of Slavery “I was never for that!” Me too neither, but you know, I’d like to take it a step further even than Archie was willing to go: I just don’t think that the US should arm Genocidal Slave states at all. Maybe that’s just me. And that’s even if they give the President lots of money, I still say No Pogroms. No Poison Gas to killers. Just Say No!
So, back to the meeting. We were all pretty happy about the ‘Budget-For-All’ non-binding Referendum that passed overwhelmingly – 87% in Northampton, and 86% in neighboring Amherst. Such bills passed in many towns in Western Mass, and in Vermont. It’s basically Green Presidential candidate Jill Stein’s Green New Deal (but without Dr. Stein’s understanding of Hemp’s place in our economy and environment): The Referendum advises that money now going to the Military and giant capitalists should instead be spent locally, hiring the jobless, manufacturing the things we need, addressing the environment; and, taking the money out of politics – thus getting rid of Citizens United.
We’re against Nuclear weapons, against war in Iran and Afghanistan. Hopefully against the war in Syria, too, but no one said that. (I hope that people aren’t now considering Syria ‘the good war,’ like Afghanistan before it.)
We’re against Drones, very much. We’re seeing that Obama is already putting Medicare and Social Security on the Fiscal Cliff for his Grand Bargain with his Republican cronies (even though, in the Vice Presidential Debate, Joe Biden revealed that Obama is lying about one reported part of that Grand Bargain, and that Military cuts are not really on the table as Obama has repeatedly claimed): In the Debate, Paul Ryan challenged Biden on the issue, asserting that cutting the Military arbitrarily is completely irresponsible. Biden hushed him up immediately saying “We’re not gonna do that” [cut Military spending].
A speaker at our meeting pointed out that Obama has already offered to cut twice as much from the social safety net as is cut from the Military. On how we might attain Jill Stein’s goal of Medicare For All, and the Budget-For-All, Richard Purcell quoted Jill Stein: “It doesn’t take an army [to organize for political change], if you start a street at a time.”
Many people at the meeting said that they wanted to form a broader coalition. Amid all the praise for the success on non-binding Referendums, there were calls of “Let’s do some binding Referendums!” (Or is it Referenda?)
The highlight of the event, as far as I’m concerned, was when 93-year-old peace and anti-Nuclear activist Frances Crowe called for a national General Strike. Nobody said nothin’! So she explained a scenario wherein lots people would simultaneously not work or drive on a Sunday afternoon. The audience looked very confused. Then she came to her point. She lamented that in Italy people just stayed out on strike nationwide for five raging days, but here, we couldn’t even get a few people to strike for just part of a Sunday afternoon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frances_Crowe
Frances, and several others there, noted that Obama had quoted Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s words on getting Progressive change accomplished: “‘Now, make me do it.’” We intend to make him. Please help.
Frances, Paki, and Rick were brilliant, and the other speakers were good too. Even the guy from Progressive Democrats of America (PDA). He said that social issues showed a Progressive victory in this Election. He mentioned Gay Rights. He did not mention Marijuana. He bragged that his organization had not endorsed Obama in 2008 or in 2012. He glowed over the electoral victories Tammy Baldwin and Elizabeth Warren, and the ever-popular Alan Grayson. He said he did not like Warren’s pin-headed jingoistic Militarism, but that they had worked something out. Then he went on to name some prominent members of Congress’s Progressive Caucus.
(Elizabeth Warren is a rabid war monger on Iran, inferring [when she endorsed throwing "all Military options" on the table] that the United States should consider such a Genocidal move as Nuclear Bombing Iran’s Nuclear facilities, even though that would set much of the country on fire, and would kill many US servicemen in Bahrain and Afghanistan – the latter because it is downwind from Iran, via the jet stream upper air current. I hope that Warren and Obama don’t Dirty-Bomb our own troops. Jet stream phenomena, by the way, also show that Warren and Obama are lying in their claim that Iran would shoot Nukes at Israel if it ever had them: Iran is downwind from Israel: They’d be Dirty-Bombing themselves!)
And there were other names dropped at the meeting too. I had to take exception eventually, when I finally got my chance to say a few words. Someone mentioned our state’s senior Senator John Kerry, who was directly involved in the most viewed public Torture video in history [up to that time]. Yes, John “Taser Torture” Kerry is our US Senator, as disturbing as that is. I was once Tortured until my back was broken. I don’t like Torturers. If you don’t remember the incident, let me refresh your memory:
John “T.T.” Kerry was speaking at the University of Florida in Gainesville. He was taking questions. A student asked Kerry embarrassing questions, including one about his lodge-brotherhood with his Presidential Election opponent George W. Bush: Kerry and the Bushes belong to Yale University’s ghoulish homoerotic Skull & Bones secret society (believed by many people in Florida to be a devil-worshipping cult). Apparent Democratic Party shills started to shout the young man down. Cops started brutalizing him and arresting him. A cowardly policeman stepped forward and aimed a Torture device at the student.
“Don’t Tase me, bro!” the Torture victim pleaded. Incredibly, even though the incident was before large group of witnesses, and on widely circulated video, the Torturer was not arrested. Incredibly, though he was once said to have courage, Senator Kerry did not speak up for the Torture victim. Incredibly, the University blackmailed the student, threatening him with the loss of his college education – everything but the loans – the University in violation the law forced the Torture victim to apologize to his Torturer, and to the cowardly crooked politician too. UF has done a lot of good in history, but it should lose its certification over its criminal Conspiratorial participation in Torture. University officials should be turned over to the Hague in Holland, for War Crimes prosecution. (But I didn’t tell the Quakers all that.)
None of those Torturers has been arrested. So much for Bushbama’s lie “We don’t Torture.” Incredibly, the cowardly Senator Kerry has not yet apologized for his role in the Torture of Andrew Meyer, and for Meyer’s ordeal as a Political Prisoner. What an incredible disgrace to our Commonwealth and country, what a disgrace to the human race is John Taser Torture Kerry! Why are there not loud protests everywhere he goes?!
And I pointed out that most of those “Progressive” Democrats now in the Caucus in Congress that he’d just named had recently Covered Up for our criminal Attorney General Eric Holder’s Operation Fast and Furious, which smuggled assault weapons to the notorious Zetas Cartel in Mexico. Some of the assault weapons Holder’s F&F smuggled to Mexico got smuggled back to the US, and used to Murder Law Enforcement.
So there was no reaction to Frances Crowe’s call for a General Strike, no reaction to Kerry Torture, no reaction to so-called “Progressive” Democrats sold us out on Eric Holder, lying that the Congressional investigation was a “Witch Hunt.” A Congressional Committee subpoenaed Holder but he [and Obama] refused to honor the subpoena, just like the Bush Administration. That’s crooked, and it’s Fascism. In the last couple of months, Ron Paul, Rocky Anderson, and Cornel West have all publicly called President Barack Obama “Fascist.”
And there was no reaction to the information about our President and Attorney General – the nation’s two highest ranking Law Enforcement officials – and their Fascist refusal to answer a subpoena, and their Hate Crimes against medical patients. Hate Crime against Skin Cancer patients. That seems pretty bad to me. (One would think that someone would rationalize some conscience-easing by saying ‘Hey, that’s not Hate Crime,’ or something.)(I’d like to see Human Rights extended even to the people who will die if they don’t get Rick Simpson Oil for their Skin Cancer, even though they’d technically be using a Marijuana product – albeit one that doesn’t get people high.) Seems pretty bad to me, but maybe that’s just me: Obama-Holder Hate Crimes against Skin Cancer patients.
Still no reaction. But my main message was about the landslide. These people and groups at the meeting were (I thought) trying to build a broader coalition. Some had suggested that they go for binding Referendums in the future. (Or is it Referenda?) So, here, in the Marijuana movement, we just put together a coalition that includes 63% of the voters in the state. We are less than a dozen small-s socialists and Rainbow hippies who did the leg work for years, proving with hundreds of Public Policy Questions put before Massachusetts voters town-by-town that we could carry just about exactly 63% of the vote.
Looking for a broader coalition? Broader than 63% may not be possible anywhere. We carried every ethnic group by a landslide. We carried Gays and Straits. We carried Freaks and Straits. We carried Democrats and Republicans and Independents and Blacks and Whites and Hispanics and college students, lots of college students. Our percentage was even higher among young voters. Looking for an economically revolutionary binding Resolution? We just passed one by a Super Majority. The group took no interest.
Man, was that frustrating! One person came up to me afterward and noted that my sound advice on coalition building unfortunately fell on deaf ears. Frances Crowe may have been the only person there who actually had deaf ears, but the others were faking it pretty good.
It is unfortunate: The Republicans are going after the Marijuana demographic, and they might get it. Republicans have now taken over what much of what the the public perceives and the pro-Marijuana Party, the Libertarians, it seems: In 2008, Right-wing Republican Bob Barr supposedly turned over a new leaf and campaigned for the Libertarian nomination. He got it, but here in Massachusetts, the state Libertarian Party refused to recognize Republican Barr. The Mass Lib Party ran George Phillies instead.
But this year, Gary Johnson, the former Republican Governor of New Mexico, got the full Libertarian Presidential nomination, even here. The Republicans have taken over the Libertarian Party, and Libertarian nominee Johnson got three times as many votes as Green Party candidate Jill Stein. So, lots of Marijuana smokers don’t vote, perceiving that the Democrats and the Republicans are all against their Civil Rights, and that Progressive organizations are indifferent to our Rights. And caring about Rights but not our Rights makes the organizations seem much less sincere, and even a little hypocritical.
To counter that argument, one of the speakers said to me privately that probably everyone in the room had voted for the bill. But that’s not the same thing as working for it. That’s not the same as joining the coalition. Not quite the same as really caring fully. Someone there mentioned the Occupy movement, which of course had some old people, but mainly young. And we here in the room were mainly old. And Marijuana voters are mainly young. In Massachusetts, without Marijuana voters, what can this movement’s chant be? I’ve got one: “We Are The Thirty-Seven Per Cent!”
And as if that weren’t frustrating enough, as I walked away from the Friends Meeting House on this warm and sunny, touristy afternoon in downtown Northampton, I ran into a friend, an award-winning investigative documentary filmmaker. Everybody here at FireDogLake.com is familiar with dirt on Bush that this man has uncovered, and the memes he generated therefrom. A brilliant writer. Tremendous activist. I told him about my frustration, trying to Left-orient people who’d thought they were already Left enough, but (to my mind) may have overlooked some important facts.
I told him my disdain for Obama ordering Murders and then pardoning himself for it, noting that self-pardons are illegitimate everywhere. He said that people take it too easy on Obama, and that he is one of them. He even used the term Liberal, referring to the President. I had to correct him. He feebly tried to argue back, but facts are facts. If the President or the King or the Dictator orders someone killed, then, by definition we’re living in a Fascist country.
And the President ordering Murders and then self-pardoning is not Liberal. And I had to correct him again. No Liberals condone Presidents ordering Murder. Fascism is not Liberalism.
That exchange was troubling, too. Even a little stressful. We smiled and cordially parted company. Luckily, 4:20 pm was approaching, time for meds. I ducked away to an undisclosed location and began to toke up. Right away something happened to restore my faith in humanity. A couple of young voters came walking along with a guitar. When they saw me, one of them said “We won!” I didn’t know if they smelled the pot, or recognized my face, or what. As they walked up to me, one of them asked “Aren’t you Norm?” (It’s a small town.)
We introduced ourselves and toked up together and talked about the Election. “There’s gonna be 35 Dispensaries.” “At least 14, one in each county” I told them, having read the text of the new law. As we walked away from the scene of the crime, we continued to discuss the election. “Can’t wait till March!” “Obama sucks, though.” “Yeah, Obama sucks.”
You see, the point is: We’ve already got 63% of the voters on our side: That means, in two years, if we hang together and put up a Full Legalization binding Referendum, then in 2014 we Marijuana voters can pick both our new Governor, and a new US Senator to replace our current Taser Torture Senator.
Welcome to Jill Stein’s Victory Party — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
Thank you, and Congratulations to Jill Stein! She ran a brilliant campaign, brought hope to hundreds of thousands of people, and lit a lamp, a direction for the future. Come to the Jill Stein Victory Party. We haven’t won yet, but we in the Stein campaign have the comfort of knowing we’re doing the right thing.
She got nearly 400,000 votes, raised and spent about $350,000: Just under a dollar a vote. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson spent about a million dollars, and got just over a million votes. They were fourth and third, respectively, in the Presidential popular vote Tuesday.
So, our work is cut out for us. There is just one Left Party in the US noticeable to the bigger Parties. The Green Revolution is needed. The Green Revolution is happening. We must not relent. If each of us who voted for Jill Stein brings in just fifteen more people, and then does that ten more times…
We don’t have time to celebrate. We have an awesome and somber task. The house is on fire, but the kids are playing Monopoly. We’ve asked Obama, the bully of the block, to put out the fire. He won’t do it because he’s playing the game.
When the President does something unjust, every time he does it, we’ve got to call him on it. Yell and point. Call a War Crime a War Crime. Atrocity is Atrocity. Murder is Murder. Self-pardoning for Murder is preposterous, and illegitimate in every case.
Every time there’s an unsolved killing, we must point out the obvious suspect: President Obama. Every time he commits a crime, we must call for prosecution. Call for a Special Prosecutor every day that there’s a reason to do so.
Maybe Obama’s going to turn honest and good this term. If so, he still needs to be prosecuted for the War Crimes and Cover-Ups. But just in case he doesn’t turn honest and good, make up your lists to distribute around the internet:
Obama’s hateful policies against Children, Women, Gays, African-Americans, Africans, Sikhs, Muslims, Minority Religions in general, Workers, Students, African Slaves, Bahraini Slaves, Home Owners, Consumers, Breathers of Air, Drinkers of Water, Eaters of Food, and his hateful policies against Mother Earth. Circulate petitions demanding that he immediately halt the Pogroms in Bahrain and the West Bank.
Every time he does something detrimental to children, point out his hateful policies against children. If he hurts or kills another child, point out other children that he has hurt and killed. Post the pictures of them dead. That is truth.
