    Quote Zenzoe:
    I share your concern for foreign deaths caused by neo-con foreign policies. I just broaden my concern for us too. You don’t. You hate Americans, plain and simple. Why don’t you just admit it?

    That is why, of course, dying patients that I had cared for sometimes asked staff to send for me to be with them, why nurses who were having difficulty with their child patients would frequently ask for my help, why a nurse once told me “If I’m ill I want you to care for me.” Why a mother might bring her no longer ill child back to the hospital because the child wanted to see me. These few and similar incidents, all, in U.S. clinics and hospitals.

  • Republicans have Rejected the Republican Party   12 min 4 sec ago

    The Democratic base won't be taking advantage of anything... Thom ignored the 800 lb donkey in the room: For years the Democratic party has been scamming their own base and had people rally around entitlement largesse and each citizens right to get their share of government pie from the pockets of those who actually worked and made the money.

    Democrats are headed for their own rejection of the Democratic party, felt when Sanders has to say bye, bye due to the "special delegate math " which ensures a Clinton nomination.

    The irony will be not that hand out entitlements have gone away, it will be that those who want more entitlements and have been groomed to see them as a right will reject Hilary and the Democratic party precisely because they are not given their pot of public gold and a true socialist government.

    So many plan to NOT vote for Hilary also.

    Isn't that funny? BOTH parties hoisted by their own petards because after decades of fooling their bases and cultivating a certain mentality... The FAILURE to pay up means a lot of birds are coming home to roost for BOTH PARTIES.. And it smells like CROW. EAT UP. Lol

    Bernie cannot beat Trump. Too many Dems and Independents do not want a socialist government.

    If Democrats end up nominating #CorporateClinton, Bernie or busters will be rejecting the Democratic Party as well.

    Then the only one who can beat Trump in November is Bernie. Too many people really dislike Hillary. Her record on the environment is abysmal. Supporting Keystone as Secretary of State, ordering the phony feasibility report, pushing fracking, and pushing GMO. And using the office of the Secretary of State to influence bad environmental policy. What would happen as President?

  • Is bulk mail or junk mail environmental? NO... How to stop Junk Mail?   1 hour 24 min ago

    Some postal carriers have been put under pressure by the recipients of the mail to place all "Circulars" (sort of like newspaper advertisements) in a place next to the mailbox... this would allow for someone later to come along and just throw away all the "Circulars"...

    I have seen apartment complexes leave out special trash bins for "Circular Day" knowing that people pull the "Circular" out of the mailbox and just throw them out.

  • United States Postal Service... Why will it someday close??? You will be surprised why???   1 hour 26 min ago

    Is bulk mail or junk mail environmental? NO

    What if the junk mail is recycled is it environmentally friendly and safe for the environment? NO

    Why? The Trees, Oils and Energy used to create the ink; and create and move the product is wasted... even the energy used to recycle the junk mail is wasteful. Because the orignal use of the product was not useful...

    How to get rid of Junk mail? You must contact each and every piece of Junk mail and ask to be taken off the mailing list.

    How to get rid of Junk mail(thinking long term)? Write your United States Representative or United States Senator and ask them to create laws restricting junk mail distribution. Ask the United States Congress to create "Do Not send junk mail" lists. Ask the United States Congress to require regulation to print on large volume bulk mail (Corporation or multi-national corporation) to easy access instructions on how to stop bulk mail.

  • Obama's CIA Director to New York -- Forget About Justice for the 9/11 Attacks   1 hour 30 min ago
    Practical Thinkers are Losers.
    Always Hit the Strategic Flank.

    May 3, 2016

    Lyndon LaRouche today delivered a frank strategic assessment of the global situation to colleagues. The British Empire forces, including their Obama presidency, is driving the world towards general warfare against both Russia and China. The very survival of mankind hinges on the strategic thinking of Vladimir Putin and his Chinese partners. LaRouche asked: How will Russia and China survive this situation? If Putin's successful flanking operations, from the time he first came into power and launched his war to crush the Chechen terrorists, to his September 2015 Syrian intervention surprise are any indication, the chances of survival are relatively good.

    Faced with a desperate, bankrupt British financial system desperate to cling to power, like the Roman Empire in its final most decadent times, Russia and China will have to resort to continuous clever flanking operations that take the British and their minions by surprise. The principle of leadership, LaRouche emphasized, embodied in individuals like Putin, lies in their ability to out-maneuver the conscience of everyone else. It involves doing the seemingly impossible.

    Putin learned an essential lesson, early in his time in power in Russia, when British and American elements sank the Russian submarine, the Kursk. At that moment, Russia was ill equipped to respond, but Putin came away with a valuable insight: Always prepare to win, and always look for the enemy's greatest vulnerabilities. Often, as in the case of the Soviet-American victory over the Nazi and Fascist scourge in World War II, it is the enemy's own self-delusions that are the greatest flank to exploit.

    Such a flank has clearly opened up in the United States now, on the basis of President Obama's slavish loyalty to the British Crown and their Saudi underlings, which is his greatest vulnerability. President Obama, CIA Director John Brennan and the top echelons of the FBI are all stuck in the fact that they cannot allow the release of the 28 pages from the original Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11. Now that they have been forced to come out publicly, due to massive public pressure, and admit that they will not release the 28 pages, they find themselves in a trap of their own making. Obama must be constrained and quickly removed from office. That is the key to war prevention at this late moment.

    There are no practical solutions to the crisis facing mankind. There are only strategic flanks, which are always based on a clear vision of the future of mankind. This was the secret to President Franklin Roosevelt's greatest accomplishments. Putin and the Chinese leadership of Xi Jinping have shown they grasp this vital secret of victory. There are no recipes or scripts that can be followed. Creative flanking at the highest strategic level, catching the adversary by total surprise, continuously: That method of thinking is the difference between survival and annihilation.

    Quote Alberto Ceras 2:

    Quote ronsears: Concluding that Hillary will be worse for our country over the next four years than Trump or whoever else the Republicans put up in Cleveland? That's just plain ridiculous.

    Not ridiculous at all. And it isn't just "worse for our country" but worse for the world, taking Libya as the most egregious example.

    That, plus your comment over at the “Lessors” thread:”

    Quote Alberto Ceras 2:

    Quote Zenzoe:

    If you cared at all for the interests of the general public, the common people, which is what the left-leaning populist policy of Bernie Sanders is all about, then you would recognize that many of HRC's political agenda will support those populist values.

    As she orchestrates more killing. I am more concerned - much more concerned - with her lust for killing than her real or imaginary populist values.

    Typical of you, Alberto. I don’t remember your caring especially for women’s issues and rights, or the lives of Americans. All you care about is foreigners. You couldn’t care less about all the American deaths in one year resulting from coathanger-induced abortions, after the fascists deny safe and accessible abortions to women; or the number of elder deaths, after they destroy Social Security and Medicare; or the numbers of Flint-style lead poisonings, once the austerity freaks have their way all across America.

    You, apparently, couldn’t care less about the numbers of American deaths, after they eliminate Obamacare and thousands of people lose their health insurance; or deaths caused by bridge collapses, food contamination, pollution, prescription drug side effects, after they eliminate all governmental regulations, once Trump and the Republicans have the presidency and start wreaking havoc with all the socialist values reflected in our government as of today; nor would you care about the numbers of suicides, when the disparity between rich and poor gets even greater than it is today, thanks to your non-support for a Democratic candidate, whomever he or she may be.

    I share your concern for foreign deaths caused by neo-con foreign policies. I just broaden my concern for us too. You don’t. You hate Americans, plain and simple. Why don’t you just admit it?

    For many years now it's been obvious and extremly troubling that the corporate media are controlling our politics, our government, and nearly everything else that matters -- even the curricula in our public schools at all levels.

    Thanks to Thom & Co. for revealing this Hulu news. I have appreciated TYTs and RT-America, so will join other pro-democracy citizens to protest Hulu's decision and urge a reversal.

    Clinton's campaign is spending at least $1 million on attacking Sanders via pro-Sanders social media sites. She is "bound and determined" to win the Democratic Party's nomination -- "no holds barred." Beware of such a person and keep fighting for Bernie Sanders. We must win California, Oregon, and others to take his campaign all the way to the convention in Boston!

  • Bernie Sanders Wins Indiana – And The Political Debate   2 hours 35 min ago
    Quote Wall Street On Parade:

    Sanders Is Correct: “Evidence Is
    Extremely Clear…I’m the Stronger
    Candidate to Defeat Trump”

    By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: May 4, 2016

    Last evening, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas withdrew from the Republican Presidential race, leaving Donald Trump the presumptive nominee following a large margin of victory for Trump in the Indiana primary. That reality triggered a front page cover today at the New York Daily News with an obituary for the Republican Party.

    Presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders has been anticipating Trump’s success for months and pointing out, time and again, that national poll after national poll shows Sanders to be the much stronger contender in a general election against Trump. (Sanders won the Indiana primary yesterday with a 52.5 percent victory over Hillary Clinton’s 47.5 percent share of the vote.)

    In a speech to the National Press Club on May 1, Sanders explained his strategy heading into the Democratic Convention on July 25-28 in Philadelphia (see video below). His written remarks (prior to delivery) explained:

    “First, those super delegates in states where either candidate has won a landslide victory ought to seriously reflect on whether they should cast their super delegate vote in line with the wishes of the people in their states.

    “Let me give you just a few examples:

    “In the state of Washington, we won that caucus with almost 73 percent of the vote but at this point Secretary Clinton has 10 super delegates. We have zero.

    “In Minnesota, we won the caucus there with 61 percent of the vote. Hillary Clinton has 11 super delegates. We have three.

    “In Colorado, we won that state with 59 percent of the vote. Secretary Clinton has 10 super delegates. We have zero.

    “In New Hampshire, we won that state with more than 60 percent of the vote. Secretary Clinton has six super delegates. We have zero.

    “And that pattern continues in other states where we have won landslide victories.

    “Secondly, and extremely importantly, Secretary Clinton and I have many differences on some of the most important issues facing the American people. We disagree on trade, on breaking up Wall Street banks, on raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, on imposing a carbon tax to combat climate change, on insisting that the wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share of taxes, on fracking and on a number of other issues.

    “But where Secretary Clinton and I agree and where every delegate to the Democratic convention agrees is that it would be a disaster for Donald Trump or some other right-wing Republican to become president of the United States.

    “Therefore, it is incumbent upon every super delegate to take a hard and objective look at which candidate stands the better chance of defeating Donald Trump. And in that regard, I think the evidence is extremely clear that I would be the stronger candidate to defeat Trump or any other Republican. This is not just the subjective opinion of Bernie Sanders. This is based on virtually every national and state poll done in the last several months.”

  • The Bern is a long-term affliction. Call your legislators and demand they get infected.   3 hours 5 min ago

    You are out of your mind.

    All those establishment Corporate Democrats you manipulatively suggest Bernie supporters turn to support are the elitist superdelegates that decided to support Clinton even before one single vote was cast.

    Even when their constituents voted for Sanders, they refused to follow the will of those they pretend to represent. That's neither democratic or Democratic.

    Lastly and most importantly. The establishment Democrat Party opposed every single progressive candidate running against an establishment Democrat.

    THEY ARE NOT US. DON'T BE FOOLED AGAIN.

    More super obtuse unmeasurable party platform planks? That's not encouraging.

    Progressive Democrats of America stands in opposition to militarism, corporatism, and economic and military imperialism. How about Hillary and the corporate establishment Democrats? They just don't seem compatible. They overlap in rhetoric only.

    Quote Karolina:...Hillary is a Neocon, dear.

    Only in part. She's a hybrid, but I doubt you're able to see that, regardless of the facts.

    If you cared at all for the interests of the general public, the common people, which is what the left-leaning populist policy of Bernie Sanders is all about, then you would recognize that many of HRC's political agenda will support those populist values. For example, ordinary people want to see a continuation of Social Security and Medicare; she will support that— that is, she won't hand those over to Wall Street. Most ordinary people, women in particular, want to see the protection women's rights, especially regarding health care and abortion rights. That's a populist value as well. She will be a strong leader in regard to those interests.

    I could go on and on with that, but I do believe trying to reason with you is futile. Right now I'm not in a mood to support this wrongheaded thread any longer, especially its title, so I think I'll mosey along. That, at least, should make you happy.

    Again, I am voting for Bernie Sanders in the California primary. Try keeping that in mind, while you're busy hating me.

Republicans have Rejected the Republican Party

Now that John Kasich and Ted Cruz have dropped out, it’s pretty much official: Donald Trump is the 2016 Republican nominee for president.

The pundits never saw this coming, but they should have. The Republican Party has been running a scam on its base for decades now, and voters were bound to discover this scam sooner or later.
