Letter of Support to Standing Rock: Stop Pipelines, Climate Change, and Capitalism

Oceti7logoJpg.jpg13912667_10157278971710357_4306690732741922695_n.jpgTo support the frontlines Sacred Stone Camp: for general camp support: www.gofundme.com/sacredstonecamp. for legal defense support: https://fundrazr.com/d19fAf.

Brave resisters and water protectors descended on the Dakota Access Pipeline construction site to halt its construction as it lurches towards the Mni Sose, the Missouri River, at Cannonball, ND. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Oceti Sakowin (The Great Sioux Nation) have opposed the pipeline and all pipelines trespassing treaty territory, as defined by the 1851 and 1868 Fort Laramie treaties. The proposed 1,172-mile pipeline would transport Bakken-produced heavy crude oil across the major freshwater source for countless human and nonhuman lives, the Missouri River.

The Red Nation calls on everyone to support resisters and water protectors as they put their lives on the line to halt this devastating wasicu, fat-taker capitalist pipeline. On July 27, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe filed a lawsuit in the District of Columbia…

The 2016 U.S. Presidential Election: 75 Days Of Destiny.

“There is nothing stopping Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump from gladly accepting and embracing proposals for 4-way debates, numerous and lengthy, in the remaining 75 days of the campaign. So, if there is nothing but their own reasons stopping them from welcoming 4-way debates, how do the American people grapple with Clinton and Trump’s persistent choosing of exclusionary 2-way debates meant to “inform” voters on their ‘leadership options’?”

Stein Baraka

“Those who would treat politics and morality apart will never understand the one or the other.”

– JOHN MORLEY (1838-1923) British statesman

Alphabet Can Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein and her Vice Presidential running mate Ajamu Baraka pull off a political, historic and odds-defying “miracle” over the next 75 days and win the 2016 presidential election? Just thinking about such a possible scenario coming to pass on voting day November 8 gives the idea of “the old college try” a whole new meaning and level of intensity.

What can one discern from observing neither Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump have expressed any welcoming of Dr. Jill Stein and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson to televised debates, marking the 1st time in U.S. presidential political history where four candidates take the stage and engage in battles of ideas? In answer to that question… Because blocking Dr. Stein and…

Jill Stein: “Nationalize The Fed.” How Will Clinton, Trump, Johnson Respond?

” … Dr. Jill Stein has started the real debate of the 2016 presidential election. Would Ms. Clinton, Mr. Johnson or Mr. Trump like to volunteer as the first to respond?”

“A man is truly ethical when he obeys the compulsion to help all life he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives.”

The Philosophy of Civilization, Part II (1923)

– ALBERT SCHWEITZER (1875-1965) Alsatian-born physician, organist, philosopher

blogger3-1Alphabet Now that the dust is nearly settled after the Republican and Democratic party conventions, the remaining serious candidates are Clinton, Johnson, Stein and Trump. Now, with only three months until election day November 8, the presidential debates are ready to roll into high gear. Green Party candidate and inheritor of a large segment of Bernie Sanders supporters Jill Stein has initiated the debates by, among other proposals, expressing her view that the U.S. Federal Reserve should become a public, not private, institution.

It’s fair to say nationalizing the Fed is the boldest proposal coming from a presidential candidate in a long, long time. How will the…

Doctors Without Borders Pulls Out of Northern Yemen Due to US-Backed Bombing Campaign

“Please immediately call your Representative and Senators and ask them to oppose U.S. support for the war in Yemen including arms sales to Saudi Arabia. The Capitol switchboard is (202) 224-3121.”

PEACE ACTION'S GROUNDSWELL

SannaMarketplace

Yesterday, Doctors Without Borders, commonly known by its French name Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), evacuated its staff from six hospitals in northern Yemen in response to the August 15 bombing by the U.S.-backed Saudi-led coalition of an MSF facility in Yemen’s Hajjah governorate earlier this week that killed 19 people and injured 24.

Since peace talks between Houthi rebels and the Saudi coalition collapsed on August 6, the coalition has resumed and apparently doubled down on a strategy of bombing civilian targets. On August 7, 18 civilians were killed in a coalition bombing of a marketplace in Yemen’s Nehm district. According to Mr. Othari, one of the injured who lost his son in the attack, “They targeted only civilians… There wasn’t a single gunman or military vehicle around.” On August 9, the coalition bombed a potato chip factory in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, killing 14 civilians. The day after…

Despite Avalanche of Denials, It’s STILL All about Race

Florida’s 18th Judicial Circuit, where Trayvon Martin was murdered, has likely been Florida’s frame-up capital since the early 1980’s – perhaps even the nation’s frame-up capital. Obviously, any time someone is framed for murder, someone else has gotten away with murder. The FBI and Department of Justice cannot expose Florida’s conviction and peripheral corruption without exposing their historic involvement in it. We need a president who actually believes in equal justice, who will immediately appoint replacements for James Comey and Loretta Lynch if they don’t reverse course and adhere to their public corruption mandates. Obviously, the president need not be a constitutional scholar, or the recipient of the Nobel Peace prize. The president only needs to firmly believe that no one will get away with murder on his or her watch. The 18th Judicial Circuit’s freed innocents include Juan Ramos, Wilton Dedge and William Dillon; the remaining framed innocents include still-incarcerated Crosley Green, Jeff Abramowski and Gary Bennett, as well as still-very-dead, wrongly executed Gerald Stano.

United States Hypocrisy

Trayvon Martin Trayvon Martin

In the weeks and days leading up to a jury in Sanford, Florida’s unanimous acquittal of George Zimmerman, the admitted killer of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, on July 13th, there were no shortage of lawyers, prosecutors and other “legal analysts” who flooded the airwaves of television and radio stations attempting to provide legal justifications for why Zimmerman was likely to be acquitted of all charges. All of these voices sought to give credence to and provide cover for the United States’ system of “justice” regardless of what the eventual outcome would be (though they were reasonably certain the verdict would result in a Zimmerman acquittal). These legal analysts were attempting to lay the path down for a legal rationale to carry the day, and prevent members of the public from feeling that they live under a criminal “justice” system which operates with one set of rules…

No End To The Church Of England’s Cover-Ups

“As so often the church has waited until the offending Christians have died or are long retired before issuing belated admissions of guilt and grudging apologies.”

Frostys ramblings a left look at life

Covering up historic child abuse is now a permanent feature of the Church of England, says PETER FROST.

IN ITS latest cynical attempt to bury bad news, The Church of England published a damning report on the horrific abuse of youngsters at a Church of England children’s home on the same day Theresa May became Prime Minister.

This latest of so many cases of child abuse by bishops, clergy and senior lay staff employed by the church concerns physical and sexual abuse at Kendall House in Gravesend, Kent over a 20-year period.

kendall house

Vulnerable girls were regularly overmedicated on antipsychotic drugs, locked in isolation rooms, physically abused and even raped.

The Church of England has now issued a “wholehearted apology” following the investigation, which found the response of the dioceses of Rochester and Canterbury “woeful and inadequate.”

“Only the naive will believe this is not an attempt to bury bad news…
