The People's Climate Rally 2017

The D.C. march for science will be the most wonderfully nerdy demonstration ever
Scientists are taking a cue from last week's Women's Marches and planning their own protests in Washington, D.C., and far beyond.

Environmental Activists Plan to March on Washington April 29

April 29: Climate March in Washington, D.C.
The Global Catholic

April 29, 2017. Let’s March
Jan 3, 2017

Join In
The Peoples Climate Movement
this April 29th in Washington, D.C.
and across the country
to stand up for our communities and climate.

Sister Marches
Can’t make it to DC?
Find a sister march that’s happening near you.

Everything we have struggled to move forward in the United States is in peril. Our loved ones feel under siege, and those in power in Washington are advancing a dark and dangerous vision of America that we know is untrue. To change everything, we need everyone.

Why we’re marching

On the 100th Day of the Trump Administration, we will be in the streets of Washington D.C. to show the world and our leaders that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities and our planet.

We will come together from across the United States to strengthen our movement. We will demonstrate our power and resistance at the gates of the White House. We will bring our solutions to the climate crisis and the problems that affect our communities to our leaders in Congress to demand action.

We March to:

* Advance solutions to the climate crisis [that are] rooted in racial, social and economic justice and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers.
* Protect our right to clean air, water, land, healthy communities and a world at peace.
* Immediately stop attacks on immigrants, communities of color, indigenous and tribal people and lands and workers.
* Ensure public funds and investments create good paying jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize.
* Fund investments in our communities, people and environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all.
* Protect our basic rights to a free press, protest and free speech.

March with us on April 29th
as we come together to resist
and march for our families,
our communities and our planet.

Sign-Up
Join us on April 29th

Senate Democrats plan filibuster to stop Gorsuch confirmation to Supreme Court

Call YOUR Senator
Demand they filibuster Gorsuch's confirmation.

Working families, many of whom live in or near major cities, disproportionately experience the toll of environmental injustices everyday—high pollution levels and increased exposure to environmental hazards at home and at work are a reality for too many. As an educator, I know first hand the impact that a healthy environment has on working people's’ ability to learn and thrive.

Healthy, vibrant communities and economies cannot survive without clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. We must make that message clear and join the People's Climate March to make sure the 100th day of the Trump administration is met by the same force of protest that have marred his first 50. From day one of Trump’s presidency, working people have taken action with inspiring acts of resistance and together, we will continue. As you’ve seen in countless news reports, there are few things more uplifting than when working people come together and raise our voices for the world we want to see.

The 2014 climate march was the largest in our nation’s history and this one will be even bigger. Everyone, from every sector from our nation's workforce is ready to speak up. Educators such as myself are ready to lock arms with airport workers, nail salon workers, and concerned moms and dads who are ready to take action for our environment. By rigging the system in favor of corporate polluters, self-interested politicians kill the creation of new jobs and industries, and destroy the clean air and water our families and communities need to thrive.

From the Fight For $15 to Black Lives Matter and Women's March on Washington, D.C., working people are united in speaking out against the system that is clearly rigged against us. Now we must come together to demand that future generations have a healthy and safe environment in which to live and prosper. Join our growing resistance: on April 29, the 100th day of Trump’s presidency, lift your voice in the People's Climate March near you.

The climate action movement is growing and getting stronger every day because working people around the nation joined the call demanding that we find solutions that will protect our communities for generations to come. Join the movement.

White House plan
to help pay for border wall is a long shot

The White House is following up its longshot roster of budget cuts with a wish list of $18 billion in reductions, including cuts to medical research, infrastructure and community development grants.

A look at how Trump's moves on coal will affect the industry
Experts say coal's biggest problem isn't a shortage of the fuel to dig or even climate change regulations but cheap and abundant natural gas. Gas prices dropped as advances in drilling such as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, greatly increased the amount of gas on the market. For many utilities, that's made gas a more attractive fuel than coal.

So...the anti-science progressive crowd is getting together to try and fool everyone into thinking that they really do support science when that has been shown to not be true.

I like the sign in the picture..."the debate is over". They must be talking about GMO foods.

11,243,546 will attend by balloons filled with hot air captured from GOP exhalations.

Quote K2: and how much carbon will they be adding to the atmosphere in doing so?

Can't bake a cake without breaking some eggs K2. Don't lose any sleep over it. Someday after the protest we'll have Biodiesel and Biomass homegrown locally. If it really really bothers you. Organize one closer. Whining about it won't stop the poisoners. Your logic states that if a bear was about to eat your kid you wouldn't waste any bullets due to lead in the environment? Just say Bon Appétit Mr Bear.

Only what we use, like air, water and clean dirt. You are free to wrap your lips around a tail pipe and suck all day if you prefer kids breathing Exxon emissions instead of oxygen. I'd even buy a ticket to see that. Maybe when Conservatudes start acting human they too will be concerned about profits over clean air and water and dirt. I know my doobie is carbon neutral and so its less CO2 than manufacturing pills or a bottle of beer. Don't they ever give trolls more to read than Nanny Rayguns Just keep saying NO and crawl into denialism and live happily ever after?

"Only what we use, like air, water and clean dirt. " DdC

Yeah, because we conservatives have sequestered all the clean air, water, and clean dirt for ourselves and to only use it when all the other clean air, water, and dirt ceases to exist. It takes a special kind of stupid to believe the things that liberals believe.

Sequestered it? Now thats pretty stupid. Its also stupid to let your kids play in dirt Monsanto sprayed with poisons. Or a sneaky place to hide toxic waste among the synthetic fertilizers. But not only stupid. Conservatudes are also very greedy and weak. Follow the money and you will find dirty water, air and dirt. Thats not hard to rationalize. Meaning you have no thoughts of your own. You follow Monsanto and Exxon and probably hope and pray they might tinkle down upon you, but all you get is a minimum wage check you also fight against as well as a living wage. In a right to work for less state selling out your own family.

Like eating Frankenfud. You really think I care if a GOPer chokes on the shit? Sorry, my compassion is reserved for real Americans who care about human essentials the GOPerverts believe belongs to their rich corporate masters. You don't have to sequester anything to leave your poisons and crude oil stains. They frack the fresh water and fill the air with sulfur and CO2, clear cut forests to graze cattle and spray round up cancer all over the kids and pregnant women. Having more abortions than in the clinics you want to shut down to keep the women in their place. Now dribble out some more elementary school insults to impress your chew tobacco spittin shitkicker kinfolk.

As I said, Conservatudes, mostly christians believing everything belongs to them as gods stewards. Doing such a lousy job they should be fired. I believe someone edited the bible and really meant they should be stewards and stewardesses at the bottom of the corporate food chain.

From 2005-2008, ExxonMobil's profit increased from $36.1 billion to $45.2 billion, setting the all-time profit record for a U.S. company. In the same time frame, ExxonMobil's discontinued the employment of 3,800 people.

That is how, they steal public property, and then re-sell its resources. That fouls the air and pollutes the water and poisons the dirt. No one said Conservatudes have to Sequester anything. They just steal it like common junkies stealing from their relatives. I have never seen Conservatives on the right side of a fight. Always siding with the bullies, killers and greed. Selling fake wars or leaving pollution we all have to live with. Prisons and poisons and big government Nanny State with Vagina Police and busting sick people for smoking pot. Fighting to shut down clinics and it seems they just Hate Americans. Even the dullest light in the room can see who their targets are. The poor, of which most are rural Caucasians voting for the polluters their own kids have to live with. I don't know if it gets any lower than selling out your own kids health for a corporate profit and tax dodging won't build more healthcare. Conservatudes fight for their own demise. Now that's stupid.

Finance of Climate Change Denial

From 1997-2015, ExxonMobil spent over $33.7 million on organizations that deny the science of climate change or block policy solutions to global warming.

In 2008, ExxonMobil released a statement that appeared to mark the end of the company's investments in organizations that ignore or attack the science of climate change. The Guardian reports that in a company statement, ExxonMobil announced:

“In 2008 we will discontinue contributions to several public policy groups whose position on climate change could divert attention from the important discussion on how the world will secure energy required for economic growth in an environmentally responsible manner."

Since 2008 ended, ExxonMobil has spent over $9.9 million on such organizations (data on file with Greenpeace USA, available at ExxonSecrets.org).

ExxonMobil has a long history of funding junk science and public relations to create political doubt of the effects that burning fossil fuels has on the atmosphere, using similar strategies that the tobacco industry used when denying the links between smoking and cancer. Only recently did CEO Rex Tillerson reverse Exxon’s previous stance and admit that global warming is a threat. Publicity exposing Exxon’s network of climate skeptic think tanks led the company to drop funding to several of the groups, such as the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Heartland Institute, the George C. Marshall Institute and the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow.

Pollution:

The Political Economy Research Institute ranks ExxonMobil fifth among corporations emitting airborne pollutants in the United States. The ranking is based on the quantity (4.3 million lbs in 2014) and toxicity of the emissions. 68.7% of ExxonMobil's polluting facilities are located around communities where people of color are the majority of the population. PERI ranks ExxonMobil #17 among U.S. water polluters, releasing over three million pounds of toxic material directly onto surface waterways.

Exxon famously became the center of national attention in 1989 when the single hulled Exxon Valdez tanker ran aground on a reef in Prince William Sound, Alaska. The tanker spilled 10.9 million gallons of crude oil into the Arctic water. The cleanup effort was notoriously difficult, and while cleanup was declared complete in 1992, oil and damage still remain. Additionally, cleanup volunteers ended out becoming ill from exposure to toxins during cleanup, some dying from related illness, while survivors continue to suffer from chronic sickness. Source: The Encyclopedia of Earth

In July of 2011, ExxonMobil's Silvertip pipeline ruptured and sent over 63,000 gallons of oil into the Yellowstone River near Laurel, Montana. Department of Transportation investigators faulted Exxon's slow response for making the spill response more difficult. Damage and cleanup along 70 miles of the Yellowstone River are ongoing. Exxon has spent $135 million on the cleanup effort, and faces fines of $3.4 million from state and federal agencies for safety and pollution violations.

Violence in Aceh, Indonesia

In 2001, the International Labor Rights Fund (ILRF) filed a DC-based lawsuit on behalf of eleven anonymous plaintiffs against ExxonMobil for its role in a series of violent crimes in Indonesia from 1999-2001. The company was accused of hiring the Indonesian military to provide security for their assets in the Aceh province, resulting in the torture, rape and mass murder of Indonesian people. The plaintiffs stated that ExxonMobil was well aware of the mass violence they were funding, while the company claimed that the suit was filed simply to bring publicity to ILRF. In September, 2009, Chief District Court Judge Royce Lamberth dismissed the case, stating, "Where a non-resident alien is harmed in his own country, he cannot and should not expect entitlement to the advantages of a United States court." Exxon has made tens of billions of dollars from their operations in Aceh.

Political Spending and Lobbying

Since 1999, ExxonMobil has spent almost $9.3 million on political campaign contributions, $1.4 million of which went to politicians in the 2015-2016 election cycle (10% to Democrats, 90% to Republicans). ExxonMobil sends addition money on state politics, spending over $17 million since 1990.

Since 1998 lobbying disclosure laws went into effect, ExxonMobil has spent over $229 million on federal lobbying, making it the country's twelfth highest spender.

In response to a three-phase plan to start controlling greenhouse gas pollution, ExxonMobil contributed pressure to former president George W. Bush's office to prevent the Bush EPA from acting, effectively delaying initial EPA regulation for almost three years.

I'll state it again for the last time. Just like progressives believe on climate change, the science on GMO foods is SETTLED. If you are so convinced that the science on climate change is convincing, why not on GMO foods? Are the scientists who have published studies and peer reviewed papers on GMO foods somehow less educated and knowledgeable than climate scientists? Are they from the wrong part of the country? Is their hair parted on the wrong side?

My point is that you choose to ignore the science when it doesn't support your version of reality. But you are quick to be "in the scientific corner" when it suits your political agenda. No consistency in your positions just because you are scared to death a corporation like Monsanto might benefit somehow from GMO foods.

By all means, please carry on with your agenda.

It’s About Power, Not Food:
The True Causes of World Hunger

As the chart below demonstrates, between 2002 and 2013, the combined net worth of the Forbes 400 wealthiest Americans rose by 30 percent, while food insecurity rose by 34 percent. The net worth of the 400 wealthiest Americans, according to Forbes, now tops two trillion dollars, which is more than four times the amount of the entire U.S. budget deficit. That’s right, 400 people have four times as much money as the entire federal shortfall for a nation of 314 million people.
Hunger & Nutrition .

Top 5 Causes of Hunger
Concern Worldwide is investing in women farmers in Malawi to improve nutrition (Photo: Malawi, Concern Worldwide)

We asked readers, Facebook fans, and fellow tweeters what they believed was the greatest cause of hunger. There’s enough food for all of us, every single human being, to eliminate world hunger. We are capable of producing enough food for everyone to receive adequate nutrition. Yet, nearly 1 billion people suffer from crippling hunger every day. Why is this? What do you think are the leading causes of hunger?

Below is a list of the top five causes of world hunger:

1. War and Conflict – It’s no coincidence that many of the world’s “conflict hot spots” are also the regions most ravaged by hunger. Imagine how difficult it is for a community stressed by violence, crumbling infrastructure, and fleeing refugees to support stable food systems. In many cases, a family whose life has been interrupted by war will see a drop in income and access to arable land. War and conflict drastically impact food supply and security.

2. Weather and Climate Change – Natural disasters leave dramatic impact on the production of arable land. Between droughts, floods, and tropical storms, weather can be unpredictable and devastating. Although a natural disaster may strike quickly, its long-term damage can be unimaginable. In many developing countries, farmers depend on one small plot of land. If this land is destroyed by natural disaster, their source of food and livelihood is washed away with it.

3. Agricultural Practices – In recent years, farmers have seen an increase in deforestation, desertification, soil erosion, and drought. Combined with overgrazing, over-cropping, and deforestation, the impact of poor agricultural practices can destroy arable land. By improving farming practices and increasing access to quality infrastructure, we can make huge strides in eliminating hunger.

4. Population Growth – As the populations of countries rise, so too does the demand for food. Population growth has hit developing countries especially hard. Compounded with rising food prices, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to match food production rates with population growth rates.

5. Poverty – Like hunger, poverty is often a cyclical, structural crisis. In most cases, poverty and hunger go hand-in-hand. As a family sinks into poverty, they are forced to stretch their meager income. As more money is spent on food, less money is available to spend on health care, savings, and education. Farmers may find themselves unable to purchase seeds, tools, or farming equipment. Poverty is a cause of hunger, but it is an effect as well.

Part One: Cannabis Seeds:
The Most Nutritionally Complete Food on the Planet
Millions of people every day are using hemp seed in Asia as food. They have been doing this for many generations, especially in periods of famine.

Now we know hemp seed is the plant kingdoms richest source of life-giving essential fatty acids, and may well be the cure for cancer and heart disease.

Part Two:
HEMP SEED OILS AND THE FLOW OF LIFE FORCE

Starving Babies and Illegal Food

Spectre of World Wide Famine
By itself, widespread use of hempseed food protein could save many of the world’s children now dying of protein starvation! An estimated 60% of all children born in Third World countries (about 12-20 million a year) will die this way before reaching five years of age. Many times that number have their lives dramatically shortened and/or their brains decimated.* World Hunger Project, Save the Children, ☛ ref

Fundamental Link in the Food Chain
Our politicians who made these marijuana prohibition laws based on years of disinformation (deliberate misinformation), may have doomed not only birds but also the human race to extinction from another direction.

Many animals eat birds and their eggs. Birds in the wild are essential to the food chain; and they continue to diminish in population due to, among other things, such as petrochemical pesticides, herbicides, and the lack of hempseed! With hempseed in their diet, birds will live 10-20% longer, have more offspring, and their feathers will have more luster and oil, allowing longer flight. ☛ ref

Hemp Seed Nutrition
Cannabis hempseeds contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life. No other single plant source provides complete protein in such as easily digestible form, not has the oils essential to life in as perfect a ratio for human health and vitality.

Hempseed is the highest of any plant in essential fatty acids. Hempseed oil is among the lowest in saturated fats at 8% of total oil volume. The oil pressed from hempseed contains 55% linoleic acid (LA) and 25% linolenic acid (LNA). Only flax oil has more linolenic acid at 58%, but hempseed oil is the highest in total essential fatty acids at 80% of total oil volume. ☛ ref

Food Protein
Hempseed was regularly used in porridge, soups, and gruels by virtually all the peoples of the world up until this century. Monks were required to eat hempseed dishes three times a day, to weave their clothes of it, and to print their Bibles on paper made with its fiber. ☛ ref

It takes a very sick bastard to side with Monsanto over the kids they poison.

Mama Coca wants Colombia's fumigation to end
US-sponsored Arial fumigation of drug crops in their country that has murdered children, deformed fetuses, poisoned and killed livestock, destroyed food crops, and ravaged the environment.Although fumigation is marketed as a counter drug measure, it is also used to punish farmers thought to be in collusion with rebel groups, or to clear people from land rich with desirable resources.

US drug haters employ private mercenaries for their fumigation campaign, who send in helicopters equipped with machine guns to kill anyone attempting to protect their farms from the sprays. Next comes the plane, delivering an annihilating payload of Monsanto's glyphosate, mixed with chemicals designed to make it more effective, but which also increase its toxicity several times. Once pristine rain forests melt into a deadly waste incapable of supporting life.

Monsanto Hid Decades Of Pollution
Now they know. They also know that for nearly 40 years, while producing the now-banned industrial coolants known as PCBs at a local factory, Monsanto Co. routinely discharged toxic waste into a west Anniston creek and dumped millions of pounds of PCBs into oozing open-pit landfills. And thousands of pages of Monsanto documents -- many emblazoned with warnings such as "CONFIDENTIAL: Read and Destroy" -- show that for decades, the corporate giant concealed what it did and what it knew.

In 1966, Monsanto managers discovered that fish submerged in that creek turned belly-up within 10 seconds, spurting blood and shedding skin as if dunked into boiling water. They told no one. In 1969, they found fish in another creek with 7,500 times the legal PCB levels. They decided "there is little object in going to expensive extremes in limiting discharges." In 1975, a company study found that PCBs caused tumors in rats. They ordered its conclusion changed from "slightly tumorigenic" to "does not appear to be carcinogenic."

Women Around the World Are Leading the Fight Against Corporate Agriculture
A global battle is being fought over the future of the world's food. Hear from the women on the front lines in Seed Sovereignty, Food Security: Women in the Vanguard of the Fight Against GMOs and Corporate Agriculture. These seed keepers, food producers, scientists, activists and scholars are committed to building a food system that is better aligned with ecological processes, human health and justice for all.

Monsanto’s 50 Years of Death from Above and Below Is about to End
Now, for the first time in those two decades, the number of acres planted with genetically modified (GMO) crops is down. Efforts to label GMO foods are gaining momentum. Family and community farms are taking off. Nearly 40 countries have banned GMO crops and use of Monsanto’s keystone product, Roundup (glyphosate), may not be re-approved by the Food and Drug Administration, while the European Union has done so on a restricted basis.

The Twelve Most Awful Products Made By Monsanto
it may seem cartoonish to brand one company as an evil empire reaping misery over the course of a century, but it’s hard not to when they have created artificial sugar substitutes, DDT, Agent Orange, nuclear weapons, PCBs, and Bovine Growth Hormone:

Monsanto’s Dirty Dozen

1. Saccharin cancer artificial sweetener
1970s studies, saccharin was delisted from the NIH’s Carcinogen List.
Where is it being used? – Drinks, candies, cookies, medicines, gum, fruit spreads, toothpaste, and more.

2. PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls)
cancer as well as contributing to a number of adverse health effects on the human immune systems, reproductive systems, nervous systems, and endocrine systems.

3. Polystyrene (styrofoam) food packaging
Non-biodegradable and is responsible for the most total hazardous waste worldwide.

4. Nuclear Weapons
Monsanto acquired Thomas & Hochwalt Laboratories that played a key role in the Manhattan project from 1943 to 1945 producing the first atomic bombs

5. DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) pesticide
Banned in 1972, DDT has been linked to damaging the liver, reducing reproductive success, and causing temporary damages to the nervous system

6. Dioxin
A group of chemically-related compounds that some see as amongst the most toxic chemicals known to science. For their ability to accumulate in the food chain. Primarily being found in meat and dairy products due to how integrated they have become within the food chain.

7. Agent Orange (herbicide/defoliant) dioxin contamination
Chemical warfare during the Vietnam War. Responsible for over 400,000 deaths and 500,000 birth defects with over a million suffering from health problems. Monsanto apparently knew about when it sold it to the US Government for use in war.

8. Petroleum-Based Fertilizers
Known to destroy beneficial soil micro-organisms. This destruction eventually sterilizes the soil, making it fully dependent on an external stimulant to produce. Still being used.

9. RoundUp
RoundUp herbicide, also known as Glyphosate, linked to cancer in several studies due to its properties as a potential endocrine disruptor. Approved and still widely used today to destroy and control weeds. It can be found in our groundwater, soil, streams, and even in the air.

10. Aspartame artificial sweetener
Still widely used and can be found in diet sodas, yogurts, gum, sauces, drink powders, cereals, and much more.
1. Aspartame: The Bitter Truth Behind This Toxic Sweetener
2. The Shocking Story of How Aspartame Became Legal
3. Aspartame Damages The Brain At Any Dose

11. Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH)
Genetically modified hormone that is injected into dairy cows to produce more milk. Acts as a cancer accelerator and has been linked to breast, colon, and prostate cancer. Still being used.

12. GMOs
GMOs are prevalent in many crops but most notably in sugar beets, potatoes, corn, tomatoes, squash, golden rice, soybeans, salmon, and animal feeds.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/04/170404124402.htm
Over the next 100 to 200 years, carbon dioxide concentrations in the Earth's atmosphere will head towards values not seen since the Triassic period, 200 million years ago. Furthermore, by the 23rd century, the climate could reach a warmth not seen in 420 million years, say researchers.

Coalage vs DdC. Not even close, Ddc is the winner by far. Facts, sources and references, Coalage zero. Why do you right wing trolls keep posting? You are constantly obliterated by fact. You should be ashamed!

Nice try Legend, but off the mark as usual. There were sources posted on the other thread and you know it. They don't support your political agenda on GMO foods so they must be wrong in your mind, even though they largely support the idea of climate change. You can try and sluff it off all you want, but you've been exposed. You just cannot admit that your positions are contrary to each other and have no consistency in fact. But I'm sure you would agree that is pretty typical for the left. A very strange position for someone to take who rants and raves about posting facts and sources.

Why do you continue to hate hungry people? What has happened to the democratic party in this country? If you are typical of the party these days, that explains why they keep losing election after election.

That's not babble Legend, its normal troll speak. What else they got? Lies, alternative facts and a bunch of dead bodies from it. Not worth my time other than posting more ammo, but I do that for the hell of it so the troll can spam his whiny childish blurbs for an easy way to disregard anyone coming to his corner of the gutter science. So far the GOPers haven't picked a righteous fight in 50 years since pardoning the crook in chief Nixon. Big Oil has their lapdogs trained as well as Monsanto. Nothing new, they]ve killed poor Americans since the Revolution and now poison them with frankenfud GizMO, pesticide abortions and fake wars to sell bombs and bullets. MalWart flag jerkers and bible thumpers killing for Keyrist.

Thank you for responding, Coalage. I don't hate eagles, either. And, I don't hate humans, though I detest what we do that violates life integrity. What I do hate is seeing them eating garbage, when healthier options ought to be available ... only, it seems more important to feed non-conscious rabid appetites of unbridled consumer culture that creates the garbage most of us are forced to eat ... as eagles find easier pickings in the dump.

Everybody wins. Right?

A lot of scientific literature is published to support vested interests. People who are sincere about weeding out the truth from a garden of illusion and lies know this, and work to distinguish the difference.

Have you even read the information posted here?

Or have you decided that your sources are the only ones we need to consider? Why not drop that stubborn empty argument and join in the search for relevant information?

Thanks Sue, I got back a little late and on the left coast the show is aired earlier in the day on FSTV and afternoon on RT. I'm using on old laptop and it has problems getting some sites when I was looking for transcripts. U2b is problematic for now.

The Big Picture 4-7-17 with Dr. Stuart Titus

LEADERSHIP
We envision a future where cannabis and hemp have become a cornerstone of society. A future where hemp is a staple in diets, and cannabinoids are the source of medicines that are used to conquer some of the most debilitating diseases in the world. Hemp will be one of the most abundant crops in the world, from mass agriculture in the United States to community farming that sustains the developing world. Through cannabis, our people and our planet will achieve a healthier existence.
Dr. Stuart Titus, Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc

But again, the status quo Beauregard Sessions Preferred Treatment of a 4 yr old girl using cannabis for Epileptic seizures is to take her from her parents and feed her Aptiom. While the 1952 Webster's Dictionary states Cannabis has been used medicinally for Spasms. It made little sense how the DEA could maintain no medicinal value. That determines its scheduling status. That is the base for every cop and doctor policy. That is behind the ban on medicinal research and using the word medicinal in federal trials as a defense. Obama simply lowered the enforcement priority that Sessions is trying to repeal and make the old lame unfounded case of causing crime and violence. The only crime is prohibition as well as the causal connection to most of the violence.

Yet NO US Medical School teaches Cannabis or the ECS endocannabinoid system. No Police Academy teaches cannabis has medicinal value. No federal court permits a medicinal defense and it is all based on the scheduling of Cannabis in the CSA controlled substance act. Fabricated without Science and Nixon rejecting his own Commission recommending no criminal sanctions. So until reality reaches the "professionals" Prohibitionists will terrorize more Americans than ISSL every dreamed of.

I noticed A New Day, A New War PLUS, Gorsuch Vote - Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR)
Daily Topics - Friday April 7th, 2017. Who has been working to push reality a little farther or furthur. Within a system, hell bent on keeping the deep state agenda. Including the multi trillion dollar Ganjawar and threat to their fossil fool and various products. I call them Incrementalists. They provide state sanctuaries for millions of people... who only require sanctuaries because the Science of Cannabis dictates it be removed as a controlled substance while the profiteers hold on for dear life. For 45 years.

A group of governors wrote a letter urging Jeff Sessions to keep marijuana legal, meaning in states. Its definitely a good thing for a few or a lesser evil than what Sessions day dreams about. With Bennett and Walters predator kid theories.

Oregon is moving along, and the governor signing onto a letter to Sessions, out of 50 governors with access to the same information, but it all helps. The Ganjawar has always been alternative logic, like the Airplane Movie, watching it unfold for so long. It fits, as do all of the Denialist's idiocies.

The prohibitionists are living in the “Airplane” movie…

Elaine : The gear is down and we’re ready to land.
Kramer : Alright, he’s on final now,
put out all runway lights except 9er.

maybe we ought to turn on the search lights now.
MCrosky:No, that’s just what they’ll be expecting us to do

Until then, we owe Thom a debt of gratitude for helping to bring what Science we do have, to the people, since the MSM mainstream media won't. That is still one thing bipartisan in the Congress and Media outlets. Fox or MSNBC are mostly all bigots concerning Cannabis. Its a pleasant surprise RT has had a few very good broadcasts on the drug war and Cannabis. With Putin being so very far right on the matter.

Redacted Tonight did a show on Big Pharma doing its part to perpetuate prohibition. . Thom has been pretty consistent over the years and that is also appreciated. We need an alternative to MSM with an audience who vote. Actually we need to take the profits out of the public cable and airwaves and actually inform the people. At least a MSM Network of Free Speech alternatives to Corporate advertising political infotainment. Thanks for the tip. I'll try to catch it on the flip side.

Most of the Freepers are teabag denialists. The Dick Armey Insurance Industrial Complex of haters so I usually avoid them these days. I post news at Twitter. Any MSM usually has a comment section and google or yahoo search. Depends on what you're looking for.

As far as changing the agenda. The more it seems to change the more it stays the same or goes backwards. Informing the public about cannabis has changed the score with the people. But not through the firewall of Congress. MSM is showing a glimpse of it with the Turtle blocking SCotUS or Nuking the filabuster. Cheaters and lies as they do routinely under oath about Ganja and now the people see they lie the same about ACORN or PP. Neocons value system is not about quality of life.

The blind fools following and voting for them seem to be taught by lazy or ignorant weak parents. Not teaching them why they should follow particular orders or rules. Just do what you're told and don't ask questions. Never learning right from wrong, just obey. Making easy pigeons to pluck.

Trump is showing the middle class what the DEA has been getting away with on stoners and people of color since Nexxon. Only now the Banksters, Billionaires and Generals are the Government and their agenda has no allegiance to America or the Constitution. Their 40 Trillion black budget pilfering taxes has no list for the poor and unruly unless they can make something on it. Profit Prisons, warehouse seniors and disabled and reopen the Chattahoochee's. Their media will bicker diversions from their pillaging and rape of dignity, and integrity and truth are the casualties.

Watch Brian "never learns" Williams heresy invoking Leonard Cohan RIP into his flag jerking war hawking MSNBC gab session. Showing tomachickenhawks launching multi millions of tax dollars made up by cutting social services. To antagonize more ISSL idiocy. Who the fuck are the rebels backed by? These Neocon missionaries, Blackwater? Plus the dozen other skirmishes taking place. So I stick to a few places more to give activists ammo and let people decide for themselves with alternatives to the MSM corporate agenda.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer?

Organized Money Is Dangerous To Democracy

The question that is constantly being asked, particularly on the talking heads on television, is "what do the Democrats have to do to regain political power?" What does it take?
