MSM LIARS exposed.

@CNBC and @Telemundo are silencing un edited broadcast of the actual words of the Pope on @YouTube by @Bernie2016TV.
@CNBC Claims fatuously that they own his words. Yet it’s on CSPAN. #FreeThePope #GetReal #TossedCred #RICOtheBastards

Now an exposure of MSM Liars with John Perkins of “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” on #BERNIE2016TV

If you’re Voting or not you need to know this shit!!

Here’s why I #FeelTheBern

wpid-heartland-carlin-fixed.jpg

My hope is that this will make you mad enough to go looking for Facts to dispute me with, thus causing very hard Questions to be asked of the 3rd Way DNC and DWS.

By way of background I’m a Navy Veteran (USN ET3 PMTC Pt. Mugu & NAVALEX 1979 to 1983) who’s been watching politicians and their bribers for over 35 years now. I started out republican (small r and the party of Eisenhower and Teddy Roosevelt.. or so I thought). I bailed to the democrats when Reagan started his grand Orwellian lies of Trickle Down “Economics”, and then bailed to Independent/DINO when the Democratic Party Brass decided to do the 3rd “last amnesty ever”.

Here’s my problems with @HillaryClinton… and this speaks to the entire utterly rigged political processes in Our Nation on BOTH “sides” of the aisle.
More on that facet here: https://fixerguy.net/2015/08/20/is-there-any-real-difference-betwixt-the-major-parties/

Bribed Congresscritters: We Citizens ARE coming for you all. You have a choice now: Either get to work for US, our nation & our Constitution, instead of servicing your corporate fascist bribers at Our expense, or get out now.

This is no polite “request”. This is an “invitation” to your Come to Jesus meeting. For those who don’t know what that phrase means it’s “Either see The error of your wicked ways, or you’ll meet your maker.”

Let me clarify here that my objections to SOS Clinton are NOT partisan in any way because I also believe that Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld committed Treason against Our Nation and Our Constitution, as well as conspiring to commit felony Torture in an illegal war. They ALL belong in prison for serving and assisting the Enemies of Our Constitution (along with 468/535 Congresscritters). What follows should be taken as an indictment of ALL bribed Congresscritters and Public Officials of BOTH major parties.

My objections to HillaryClinton also have nothing to do with sexisim. I’ve voted For Jill Stein, and supported the #RunWarrenRun campaign. My objections are simple: I will be voting against her Votes and Actions, and more importantly against her Corporate Bribers who drive those votes and actions. The TL;DR here is that Ms. Clinton’s Actions speak so loudly that I can’t even begin to hear her Words!

Standing Challenge to Hillary fans: I’m an Indie & you want my vote so… SHOW ME 1 (one) place where her Vote has actually helped Citizens over her corporate fascist bribers.

Rules:
1) Bring FACTS & Cites to support your claims. Lack of cites = dismissal as I’m not doing your homework for you.

2) Leave the rhetoric (Especially “any dem is better than…” bullshit, etc) and claims of wasted votes at home. Those are only suitable for fertilizing my garden and I’ve had plenty of horse shit tossed at me already.
Further: A shit Sando offered by a 3rdWay “Democrat” is exactly 0% “better” than a shit Sando offered by a Republican!
Sorry, but shit = Shit and I’m no longer having any on my sandwiches.

3) You’re asking me for my vote. Show me something I can vote for without barfing.
IF Party division scares you, and you can’t come up with the Facts I’m demanding, I’d suggest you get to work for Bernie Sanders; because I’m not budging without facts to support such a critical decision.

4) Her VOTE & verified ACTIONS only. See #2 for dissertation on shit Sando of “Her noble words.”
She’s a F’ing politician Fer gawd sake. Words = <0. Actions are everything.

5) The fact is that our votes are cosigning & asking for more policies from any politician we vote for and, more importantly, the policies of their bribers!
I will no longer use my vote to cosign & ask for more of the same old shit.

Onward:
Check out @BerniesHomie's Tweet: https://twitter.com/BerniesHomie/status/646018577976287232?s=09

If TPP (which Hillary supports unequivocally) passes, and it likely will barring a Million Man March replete with tar and feathers in D.C., THAT illegal law by fiat, combined with "Patriot" (which she also supports), along with the Obama application of FISA Star Chambers to Citizens; then our Constitution, and Our Sovereign Right/ability to impose laws upon corporations in order to insure the safety of Our Citizens and Our Nation, is effectively dead.
Hillary has been an active, even integral, life long, part of that corporate-bribery-driven process to gut our Constitution and the Rule of Law upon which it rests.

This One Thing Alone is plenty enough for me to vote against her; just as I voted against Obama the last go around after supporting him in '08. However that's far from the only issue I have with this Bribed Public Official!

Add to all of this:
Her vote against equal pay when she first became a Senator
Her vote to pass DOMA (an Act of Treason against Our Constitution which violated her legally binding Oath to protect Our Constitution)

Her votes to pass:
NAFTA
CAFTA
The removal of Glass Stegal
Her assistance to Di Fi in making the USPS "appear bankrupt" by requiring that they 100% pre fund projected retirement obligations before the employee was even hired
Her support for continuing the Shrub "reform" ban on Medicare negotiating drug costs…

Note that ALL of this can be easily verified at MapLight.org OpenSecrets.org PublicCitizen.org VoteSmart.org or by a simple Google search. Don't take my word. Look it up for yourself. Get informed! THEN vote.

Yea, thanks Hillary! No thanks. A vote for her is a vote for corporate fascisim and oligarchy. She truly is nothing but a GOP operative dressed in blue and I can NOT in good conscience cast such a vote. This "choice" between HRC and the GOP is exactly like ordering a Reuben at a deli and being offered a "choice" between a Shit Sando on rye with thousand or a Shit Sando on white with mayo. I'm not accepting either, nor am I willing to pay for either. I'll go elsewhere and eat. Fuck it.

If Hillary wins I'll most likely seek a way out of this nation, and I'll almost certainly become one of the 45% no show voters.

It's not a "single issue" here  (which is offensively dismissive) it's the preponderance of evidence shown by her actions (votes) which clearly show me that she's NOT working for Citizens, Constitution, or Nation.

THESE are the reasons I'm voting @BernieSanders even/especially if I have to write him in.

All of this, combined with the fact that I'm seeing folks who are now part of that 45% get interested again by Bernies' blatant Truth telling is huge.

We saw a taste of this in 2008, and it utterly confounded the pundits.

The way I figure it is that this is my “I’m F’ing Over It ALL vote.” I’ve got little else to lose, and by standing firm with my single voice and vote to call out the liars I just might gift that courage of conviction to a few others. #FeelTheBern of blatant TRUTH #BernBabyBern or Burn Baby Burn!
If enough folks do this (as We did in ’08) We can confound the pundits, corporate fascist bribers, and the political “handlers” provided by the corporate bribers, again. That’s an entirely Good Thing in my estimation.

If you’ve tolerated my maundering thus far, kudos & thanks to you for your patience!
I just got Woke to #RedistributeThePain and #NoJusticeNoPeace which are the final stages of the Reverend Kings’ plan to bring his people out of the last vestiges of slavery.
It’s basically a two fold plan to allow We The People to unite Our voices in a demand for Justice; in policing of communities, in government, and in economic justice.

Here’s my background on this:
In 1968 we lived in Knoxville TN which was the only home I’d known. Both my folks were progressive Democrats, and were positively ignited by the visions of a sane society offered by JFK and Reverend King.
I was going to a Head Start preschool and saw my black friends treated like shit by the white kids. I also caught some shit as I wasn’t willing to put up with, what seemed nonsensical to 6 yo me, assholery towards kids I liked. That tore my heart.

A bit after going through this apparent insanity of seeing friends abused by other kids for no good reason; my folks took me to the Masonic Temple to hear Rev. King speak. Suddenly 6 yo me heard the Truth about what was going on. I can still hear his voice booming over the crowd, and I still get tears in my eyes for the Truth he offered me.

This was a Formative Experience for the man I became. Sadly, as with many experiences of young children, that distinct memory was lost in the mists of time & the business of living life. I still retained the flavor of it in Who I Am but the details were gone.

Long story short, a new unmet friend on twitter (@TinaInkathaMuha) showed me this and talked a bit about it.
http://www.justiceorelse.com/vision
There I found a text of that speech by Rev. King and long about the fourth line into it the full memory of that great Event woke and came flooding back to me. I’m still crying for sheer gratitude to have that back.
Thanks Tina! Forever, Thanks!!

Now, here’s where it gets fun for me. We, ALL of Us non wealthy folks are being enslaved by corporate fascists in full collusion with what is, after all, OUR government. Big O little g.

Folks, We OWN the S.O.B. not the other way around as they’d have us believe. It’s high time we ALL woke the fuck UP to re-remember this fact. Over the last 40 years I’ve watched the middle class be stuffed into a dumpster and the poor & brown be stuffed into a burn barrel. I’ve protested, ranted, raved, used Math, Law, Logic, and Reason, to try and fight that process because I KNEW in my heart there Was A Way for Us; even though I couldn’t seem to find it. (Remember that speech.. I didn’t until tonight)

So, now I know! With the good Doctors’ words and voice back in my heart I can see it.
We, United and collectively OWN Our government; how do We enforce it on those who would be the enforcers?

Here’s how:
WE, all the sane folk of this once great Nation join up and use the raw power of a few hundred million people roaring together with One Voice to demand that Our government serve Us.
Specifically: We, all the various and “fractured” interest groups join and unite our voices in one set of unified demands
#BlackLivesMatter
Cops; ANY sort of cops, per Section 1 of the 14th Amendment, shall NOT EVER murder People.
No Warrant = No Search.
No Due Process = No Penalty on People

#RedistributeThePain
We WILL Have Trickle UP Economic Policy which serves the least of us FIRST, and the wealthy last. Or WE will not spend one Fucking dime to support this Consumer Driven Economy and the leeches which feed on it.

#FeelTheBern
We WILL have government which listens to Citizens and serves Citizens before servicing corporations and wealthy.

#CutTheCord
We WILL have media which tells the Truth and acts as Our Canary in the coal mine to help us watch over Our government to keep it honest & serving Us First

#BailOutOfBanks
We WILL have Glass Stegal back in Law & enforced as originally written. No loopholes, no bullshit, NO gambling with retail deposits; and no more bailouts ever. Banker screws the pooch? Depositors get bailed out, the bank is gone & Executives & Board go to prisons.

If we can unite and all of us support each the other, we canShall make this happen.
Here’s how we make our point to the Oligarchy: Don’t buy a single New thing that you don’t absolutely have to from Nov. 22 until Jan. 1
No new Cars
No new Clothes
No new Gifts
No new electronics
No new greeting cards or wrapping paper.
No new anything.
Recycled or bought used in a Private sale is fine because it doesn’t feed the beasts which leech off of Us and Our dollars.

Now, imagine what happens if 3 million folks(1%) do this. 30 M? 100 M? What happens if suddenly 9n Nov. 22, 100 M folks just quit spending with the demand of #NoJusticeNoPeace and #FeelTheBern Or Else?

What happens when the wealthy start to feel our pain because just 50 Million of us have decided to hit them in their wallets?

What happens if just 50 Million folks suddenly decide they’re NOT playing with the big banks any more and move everything to Credit Unions?

Now as a gift to you for bearing with me… my favorite line ever from a campaign ad:

Truth, Fact, and calling out BS in gay marriage opponents.

http://qr.ae/RoA4Tb

Lots of folks are talking about the recent SCOTUS decision which found that “gay marriage is a Right.”

Here I sit pondering this oddity and I noticed some things which alternately tickle my funny bone or enrage me.
The first, which I find frustratingly funny is the way which folks conveniently “remember” things, with zero regard for Fact, in order to comply with their world view. The Fact here is that gay marriage isn’t a right of any sort, because there isn’t any such thing, and that’s not what the justices found at all. What they actually decided is that the ability to legally form a marriage… any marriage… in order to have your State and Federal governments recognize your family and offer the protection which goes with marriage is a Right which carries lots of (+1800) State and Federal immunities and privileges. In this part of their decision I honestly don’t see how they could have reasonably found any other way.

It’s worth noting that this decision said only that States must allow all Citizens to be married as they choose, using the same set of rules applied to everyone. They said not one word anywhere which even implies that Churches must recognize or officiate any marriage, only that the States must… because Separation of Church and State.

Once that was settled the court went on to look at the fact that many States (38/50) allowed this Right to all Citizens, and that only a few didn’t. They also noted that the States which didn’t allow gays to marry had enacted that ban without any compelling State interest in evidence. The reason the States used for this ban was “Because we can, and it’s icky” which is never a Constitutionally valid reason. I honestly don’t see how they could reasonably have found any other way here either… especially in the harsh light of the actual words of Our 14th Amendment to Our Constitution.

As a Citizen who swore an Oath to “Protect the United States Constitution from ALL enemies foreign and domestic.” when I joined the Navy, I find it an outrage that it took 147 years for this perfectly reasonable law to be enforced. Yes, I get that society was different, but the actual words say what they say, and if our Constitution isn’t a set of absolute restrictions upon the powers of government over Citizens  (which it is, and was intended to be) then we might as well use it for toilet paper.

Here’s those words:
https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amendmentxiv
US Constitution, 14th Amendment, Section 1
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

See that bit in the middle?
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of Citizens of the United States

For me the attention getter is what’s not said: There’s zero exceptions to this absolute prohibition on States passing, or enforcing, laws which limit Citizens’ Rights under Our Fedearal Constitution. It says Citizens of the United States… as in ALL Citizens, in ALL States; It does NOT say “every Citizen except {insert your favorite group to oppress}”
In other words; States may give Citizens more Rights, Privileges and Immunities that the Federal Constitution and its Amendments do, but they may NEVER, EVER, give fewer Immunities or Rights than Our Federal Constitution does.

Now… There is a group of folks who claim that “This can’t possibly apply to Us because States Rights!” These same folks also object to what they call constructionisim.

Here’s my reply to those folks:
BULLSHIT! There’s no such thing as Constructionisim. Here’s why: This, and every legal, change to Our Constitution was made when either Congress, or the States, said “oops… we missed something here” and proposed an Amendment (change) to the Constitution. They looked at the change, and the exact language with all the repercussions of that language, tweaked the words, and passed it with a 2/3 vote in both houses of Congress. Now, this is an insanely difficult feat in and of itself… as it damned well should be… but they did it. It’s also, under the restrictions of Our Constitution, the ONLY LEGAL WAY TO CHANGE IT.
Then, and here’s the kicker: Congress (our Board of Directors if you will) submitted the exact language they had approved to the States for Ratification… just the way any corporate Board of Directors would.

Here’s what Ratify means:
http://www.nolo.com/dictionary/ratify-term.html
RatifyApproval or confirmation of a previous contract or other act that would not otherwise be binding in the absence of such approval. If an employer ratifies the unauthorized acts of an employee, those actions become binding on the employer. A person who is under the legal age to enter into a contract may ratify (and thereby adopt) the contract when he or she reaches majority, or may refuse to honor the contract without obligation.

Ready?… wait for it…
http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php?flash=false&doc=43

Then over 2/3 (28/37) of the several State Legislatures took a long hard look at the exact language, and restrictions, in the proposed Amendment and THEY EXPLICITLY AGREED TO BE BOUND BY IT.

So, this is in no way something that’s being “forced upon States” it’s language and restrictions which the States explicitly agreed to. Further, this is true of ALL the Amendments. Through the process of Ratification the States, jointly and severally, specifically and explicitly agreed to be bound by each of them… even the ones they now find inconvenient. Since the States, jointly and severally, agreed to be legally bound by each of these Amendments, there’s no “construction” necessary.

The revisionists in this are those coming along, after they explicitly agreed to it, and trying to say “But, but, but, that’s not what we meant.” This is the exact same level of bullshit, evasion, and obfuscation, displayed by BP in their recent challenge to the Gulf Spill settlements.

The only sane response here is:
Sorry. Nice try. Nope.

Bernie Sanders nails it in a way which ALL Citizens can hear!

UPDATED WITH FULL VID! Transcript of Bernie’s LU Speech: Mindblowing
Sep 14, 2015 9:17am PDT by Chaoslillith
Comment_large134

Credit to LieparDestin who did the hard work and typed this up in the comments Liveblog Diary. Liepar said I could cut and paste this into a separate diary, so I did.

I wanted to compile it to make it easier to read. I will write another diary of my views on this. This will be a history making speech, trust me. That’s all I can say at the moment. I want this to be about the speech itself.

Liepar kicked some serious butt transcribing on the fly. Thanks for letting me share this.

This isn’t a full transcript but will give you the gist. He killed it!

“Too often in our country, and I think both sides are responsible… there is too much shouting, making fun of each other. It is easy to go out and talk to people who agree with you. I was in NC last night, most of those people agree with me. THat is easy to do. It is harder but not less important for us to try and communicate with those who do not agree with us on every issue. And it is important to see where if possible and I do believe it is possible, where we can find common ground. ”

Liberty U is a religious school obviously. All of you are proud of that. (cheers). You are a school which as all of us in our own way tries to understand to understand the meaning of morality. What does it mean to live a moral life? And you try and understand how in this modern world, what the words of the bible mean in today’s society. You are a school which tries to teach its students how to behave with decency and with honesty and how you can best relate to your fellow human beings. And I applaud you for trying to achieve those goals.

It goes without saying
that I am far from being a perfect human being. But I am motivated by a vision which manifests in all great religions. And that vision is so beautifully and clearly stated in Matthews (?) ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’. That is the the golden rule. Do unto others what you would have them do to you. It is not very complicated. Let me be frank as I said a moment ago. I understand that the issues of abortion and gay marriage are issues you feel very strongly about. We disagree on these issues. But let me suggest that there are other issues out there that are of enormous consequence to our country and the entire world that maybe, just maybe we do not disagree on. And maybe, just maybe, we can try to work together to resolve them.

Justice is treating others the way we want to be treated. Like we want to be treated. No matter their race, their color, their stature in life with respect and with dignity. Now here is my point, some of you may or may not agree with me. In my view it would be hard for anyone in this room today to make the case that the united states of America, our great country, a country which we all love, it would be hard to make a case that we are a just society, or anything resembling a just society today.

All of the wealth is going to the top 1 percent. That is the truth. We are living in a time, and I want all of you would to put this in context of the bible not me, we are living in a time when a handful of people have wealth beyond comprehension. 10’s of billions of dollars. Enough to support their families for thousands of years with yachts and jet planes. More money than they would ever know what to do with. But at that very same moment there are millions of people in our country, let alone the rest of the world who are struggling to feed their families. They are struggling to put a roof over their heads and some are sleeping on the streets. They are struggling to find money in order to go to a doctor when they are sick. When we talk about morality, and when we talk about justice we have to in my view, understand that there is no justice when so few have so much and so many have so little.

There is no justice and I want you to hear this clearly when the top one tenth of one percent today in America owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90%. And in your hearts you will have to determine the morality of that and the justice of that. In my view there is no justice when here in Virginia and in Vermont and all over this country millions of people are working long hours for low wages of 7.25 an hour, 8 an hour…working hard but unable to bring in enough money to feed their kids. And at that same time 58% of all new income generated is going to the top 1%. YOU have got to think about the morality. The justice of that. And whether or not that is what we want to see in our country. In my view there is no justice when in recent years we have seen a proliferation of millionaires and billionaires while at the same time the USA has the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country on earth. How can we? I want you to go into your hearts. How can we talk about morality, about justice when we turn our backs on the children of our country.

You have got to think about it are you content, do you think its moral that 20 percent of the children in this country, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, are living in poverty. Do you think it is acceptable that 40% of African American children are living in poverty. In my view there is no justice and morality suffers when in our wealthy country when millions of children go to bed hungry. That is not morality.

There is no justice when 15 people in this country in the last 2 years, saw their wealth increase by a hundred and seventy billion dollars. Two years. My friends that is more wealth acquired in a two year period than is owned by the bottom 130 million Americans. And while the very rich become much richer, millions of families have no savings at all. Nothing in the bank. They worry everyday if their car breaks down, they cannot get to work and if they cant get to work they lose their jobs. They cant feed their families. In the last two years 15 people saw a hundred seventy billion dollar increase. That is not justice, that is a rigged economy designed by the wealthiest people in this country to benefit the wealthiest in this country at the expense of everybody else.

In my view there is no justice when thousands of Americans die every single year because they do not have any health insurance and do not go to a doctor when they should. I have talked to doctors personally and without exception there are times when patients walk into their office when sick, and when asked why they didn’t come sooner, they said they didn’t have insurance and thought the problem would get better. And sometimes it does not, and sometimes they die. That is not justice, that is not morality. People should not be dying in the USA when they are sick.

What that is, is an indication that we are the only major country on earth that does not guarantee healthcare to all people as a right. And I think we should change that. I think that when we talk about morality what we are talking about are all of gods children, the poor, the wretched, they have the right to go to a doctor when they are sick.

I am not a theologian, an expert on the bible, nor am I a catholic. I am just a US senator from the small state of Vermont but I agree with Pope Francis who will soon be coming to visit us in the United States, I agree with Francis when he says “the current financial crisis originated in a profound human crisis. The denial of the primacy of the human person. We have created new idols the worship of the ancient golden calf has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the ideology of money and the dictatorship of an impersonal economy lacking a truly human purpose”

he also writes:

‘there is a need for financial reform along ethical lines that would produce an economic return to benefit everyone. Money has to serve, not to rule’.

Those are pretty profound words which I hope we will all think about. In the popes view and I agree, we are living in a nation and a world, and the bible speaks to this issue. In a nation and a world that worships not love of brothers and sisters, not love of the poor and the sick, but worships the acquisition of money and great wealth. I do not believe that is the country we should be living in. Money and wealth should serve the people. The people should not have to serve money and wealth.

Throughout human history there has been endless discussion, it is part of who we are as human beings. endless discussion of the meaning of justice and the meaning of morality. And I know that here at Liberty U those are the kinds of discussions you have every day. Those are the discussions you should be having. We should be having all over America.

I would hope, and I conclude with this thought. I would hope very much that as part of that discussion some of you will conclude that if we are honest in striving to be a moral and just society it is imperative that we have the courage to stand with the poor. With working people. And when necessary take on very wealth and powerful people whose greed is doing this country enormous harm.

Thank you all very much.

In regards to the issues we have commonality on.. how do we get there?

“If you were elected president what would you do to bring healing and resolution to racism in our country?”

Bernie: That is an excellent question and I thank you for it. I would hope and believe that every person in this room understands it is unacceptable to judge, discriminate against people based on the color of their skin. And I would also say that as a nation the truth is, a nation that in many ways that was created, and iI’m sorry to have to say this.. on racist principles, we have come a long way. In 2008 this country took a huge step forward in voting for a candidate based on his ideas and not the color of his skin and whether you like him or not, and I do, that is a step forward for America. 

But let me also say what everyone here knows, and my thoughts just returning from SC, we all know to what degree racism remains alive in this country. I cannot understand how a sick man can walk into a bible study class, discuss the bible, pray with people in the room and then take out a gun and kill them because of the color of their skin. I cannot understand for the life of me how their can be hundreds of groups in this country whose soul reason for existence is to promote hatred. They say join us so we can hate. Gays, Africans, Jews, anyone different.

Let us be clear, that when you have unarmed African Americans shot by police officers something which has been going on, that is also institutional racism and cries out for reform. I am a former mayor who has worked closely with police officers, the majority are honest and do a very good job. But when a police officers breaks the law, as in the case with any other official, that officer must be held accountable. That’s justice. There is a lot to be done in regards to the criminal justice system. I think what we have to do is when we see instances of racism, when we hear political leaders appealing to the worst elements of us by making racist attacks on other people we have to stand up and say we are not going to do that, racism is unacceptable.

Question:
‘Many agree about protecting billionaires at the expense of children. Many want to know about unborn children in the womb’

Sanders: This is an area where I disagree. it is improper for the government to tell every woman in this country the very difficult choice she has to make on this issue. Many times conservatives say get the government out of life, but on this issue which we are divided, my view is I respect a family that says we are not going to have an abortion. But I would hope that other people respect the painful choice that many women have to make, and don’t want the government telling them what to do.

I want to take that question a step further, we do disagree on that issue. Here is where I hope we have common ground, I have not tried to be partisan in my remarks but I will for a moment. I am a ranking member of the US budget committee. I want to tell you what was in the republican budget that passed a number of months ago. Check it out. When you talk about issues of children understand republican budget threw 20 million people off of healthcare including children. At a time when families cannot send their kids to college, but at a time when families to college republican budget cut pell grants. At a time when children are going hungry republicans cut millions in funding for feeding children. I don’t think that is a moral budget.

How can we pray for you
and your family. when we think of you and say, what should we ask for you?

Sanders; I want prayers to be not for me, but prayers for our country. Prayers for how we bring our people together. Prayers on how we can create a beautiful country where all people have healthcare, where all kids can go to college, where we have wiped out child poverty, those are the prayers I would like to join with you in making.

11:49 AM PT: BOB JOHNSON FOUND A FULL VID + QA! Woo hoo!! http://www.dailykos.com/…&nbsp; Go watch it. I tweeted and FB the vid. Make this go viral people!

My @Quora post: Reality check for Both major parties: Fuck You and your bribers!

http://qr.ae/RHdpSb

I’m not impressed with the hypothetical choice between Kanye and trump (no respect, no caps), just as I’m not impressed by the entire field of corporatists “offered” for my selection by both major parties.

Considering the vote history (Don’t take my word… look for yourself at VoteSmart.org) of both the DNCs and the RNCs presidential candidates in servicing their corporate bribers at Our expense, it appears that this election is precisely that level of “choice” between a shit sandwich on rye with thousand and a shit sandwich plain on white.

Kanye seems a bit more sane than the donald, but I see little in either of them, or indeed, the entire establishment field from either major party, to recommend my vote. Were it a forced choice I’d have to vote for Kanye as he’s closest to having been an ordinary Citizen and is the more sane of the two.

Fortunately for me it isn’t such a forced “choice” because I won’t buy the “wasted vote” meme which has been used over the last 40 years to insure that I have little valid option but to vote for corporatism at my expense. Put simply: In our politics a “choice” between A or B with no “Screw both of you” option isn’t actually a choice at all. This is because in such a situation BOTH “choices” can be (and are) rigged to service whatever the power structure wants.
I’ve looked closely at the vote histories and corporate bribers (oh, sorry SCOTUS “donors”) of all the major party candidates. I’ve tracked the money at OpenSecrets.org and MapLight.org, and I’ve asked the one critical Question for each of the votes by these wannabe candidates: “Who F’ing Profits From This?!” In the case of the real election the Democratic Party Brass anointed Hillary over 8 years ago for this, and the Republican Party Brass anointed Jeb at about the same time. The only meaningful difference between the two is on issues which do NOT affect the corporate profits of their bribers. So… as one fraudulent, unprosecuted, banker said: ” I’d be perfectly happy with either Jeb or Hillary. This endorsement, in and of itself is ample reason for me to Vote against both of them. I want a candidate who serves Citizens FIRST, not corporate fascist bribers. The reason I reject that meme of the wasted vote is two fold. I’ve been screwed over by BOTH parties, and that meme is ONLY effective if We Citizens agree to it. If We disagree, say by registering fellow citizens of all stripes, educating them to look behind the curtain at the little man pulling levers, and demanding that the vote their conscience based on the actions and history of candidates with an eye to who profits, that meme loses all its power. That’s what happened in ’08, and I suspect (hope) will happen in ’16.

Since we do have one candidate who is telling the blatant Truth to Citizens and to power, and who is taking actions to Serve Citizens vs. Corporations, that’s where my vote will be. Even (especially) if I have to write him in.

I honestly don’t care what your politics are, all I ask is that you look hard at any candidate you’re considering voting for; ignore their words, (they’re politicos fer gawds sake!) look hard at their bribers, look hard at their actions and ask this one, little, radical, Question: “Who F’ing Profits From This?!”

If the answer to that radical little question is not “Citizens” vote against them.
I’m not voting “least shitty sandwich” this year (which is precisely opposite what the DNC, RNC, and their donors, insist I must do), I’m voting for the sandwich with zero shit.

I want a Reuben, hold the shit! Screw BOTH parties; and their “donors.”
