Article: Hillary Would Be A War President

Article: Hillary Would Be A War President | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Article: Hillary Would Be A War President - Hillary would be a war president. She has been a war woman her whole career. She voted for the Iraq war. She was a leading influencer in supporting the destruction of Libya. She will be a conflict encourager in the middle east. It's what neocons do.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This man may have some true points! Hillary does not seem to have built much of a peace bridge left much of a trail to peace after her turn as Secretary of State.

For Black Women in South Carolina, It’s Clinton’s Turn - NYTimes.com

For Black Women in South Carolina, It’s Clinton’s Turn - NYTimes.com | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

What black women everywhere can count on from the Clintons is that a few more crumbs will in fact trickle down but not much more. Bernie and Elizabeth are the only reason Hillary is even pretending to go after Wall Street excesses and activities that break our people and thus our nation down.

 

What a coup this would be for Wall Street if they get a win for Hillary or any of the GOP candidates. The ladies and others need to tune into Bill Moyers or some of the studies that actually show how the Clintons hurt black and others that were all ready low income and needed them most. Let us just say look at the crumbs they dropped /trickled down before. Those helped a bit keep some people alive a little longer but real change would have helped so many actually really improve. New studies do say deep poverty and high low-income incarceration were notably increased with Clinton policy changes now that the results are in 15 years later.

 

We can't afford to let this drag on with yet another Clinton or GOP tough love pack of empty shoestrings and bootstraps to improve personal lives and our nation. We also can no longer set back a allow our representative government to roll on their own without our constant, steady input and awareness of the real situations we are in the middle of confronting. I'm not talking about handing lazy people stuff I'm talking about being honest. .

 

We have at least one third of the GOP ready to elect a guy that will place in the White House a 3rd wife that comes with her own white fur rug, nude centerfold pose to add to young girl's role model list. Really?  Trump expands the GOP hate talk and goes along with his counterpart’s name calling, belittling and bullying and their contest seems to be how can to that best or look like a nice guy….   the "nice guy" then ends up being even more effective at getting the same desired hateful results. So far there  is not a lean or a need for the nice guy cover image and Trumps all out hate and bullish way show the GOP in full Monty....butt naked for all the hatefulness the GOP has spent decades installing into it's followers.

Bernie Sanders Ties Hillary Clinton to Poverty Caused by Welfare Reform

Bernie Sanders Ties Hillary Clinton to Poverty Caused by Welfare Reform | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Senator Bernie Sanders began his day of campaigning by criticizing Hillary Clinton’s support of welfare reform in 1996, accusing her of backing legislation that ultimately increased poverty levels and led more Americans to face economic anxiety.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is exactly what I thought I I listened to Clinton's welfare reform as it occurred years ago and now it is proven as bad as it sounded...but dumping people sure help create a federal surplus I'm sure... I listen to Clinton explain how she (nearly single handed with her  "I") already fixed everything over the last twenty years ...at least that is what she sounds like and this begs the question...   If you fixed it or even knew than how is it that those same things seem broken?

Alan Grayson throws endorsement, super-delegate vote, to Bernie Sanders - Florida Politics

Alan Grayson throws endorsement, super-delegate vote, to Bernie Sanders - Florida Politics | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, a U.S. Senate candidate, has thrown his endorsement and super delegate vote to U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Democratic presidential race. Grayson made the decision after asking his supporter to help him decide between Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Grayson’s campaign said his effort, run through a …
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Letter from Grayson feel free to share: 

Last summer, my 16-year-old daughter asked me whether I felt the Bern. “Did you leave the stove on again?” I asked her.

Now, after listening to We, the People, I feel the Bern.

I hereby endorse Bernie Sanders to be our Democratic nominee for President of the United States. I will vote for him as a Super-delegate at the Democratic National Convention. And I enthusiastically join, shoulder to shoulder, his political revolution.

Join our political revolution by chipping in $27, Bernie’s average contribution, right here and right now >>

Perhaps inspired by the Bernie Sanders message of “Not me. Us.”, for the past several days, I have appealed to Democrats across the nation to tell me for whom I should vote, as a Super-delegate at the Democratic National Convention. The response has been absolutely overwhelming. Almost 400,000 Democrats voted at GraysonPrimary.com. More than the number who voted in the South Carolina primary. More than the number who voted in the New Hampshire primary and the Nevada caucus combined.

The results: Sanders 86%, Clinton 14%. More than just a landslide. An earthquake.

We invited not just votes, but also comments. I have been fascinated by the reasons you all gave for your votes. We’ll be sharing some of those, in coming days. But in Bernie’s case, it boils down to this:

America needs a revolution. And only Bernie Sanders, as President of the United States, can make one.

For those of you who read these missives (and if you don’t, then welcome!) this endorsement may not be entirely unexpected. You know that:

(1) I have passed 54 amendments on the Floor of the House in the last three years, more than any other Member. And when Bernie Sanders served in the House, in his time Bernie was the “Amendment King,” getting so many good things done in a hopelessly waterlogged institution, again and again.

(2) I am the only Member of the U.S. House of Representatives who raised most of his campaign funds from small contributions of less than $200 (in both 2012 and 2014, by the way). Bernie Sanders is the only Member of the U.S. Senate who raised most of his campaign funds from small contributions of less than $200. And this year, Bernie Sanders is the only Presidential candidate who has raised most of his campaign funds from small contributions of less than $200. Bernie and I are not owned and beholden to the billionaires and the multinational corporations and the lobbyists and the special interests.

Bernie Sanders is unbought and unbossed. So am I. That is an essential element of the political revolution. Contribute $27 today, to demonstrate that a candidate doesn’t have to sell his soul to pay for a winning campaign.

Bernie Sanders and I share a goal of building a grassroots movement of people who want to take back our country from the billionaires and the multinational corporations. We want to make elections into about something different: Not the lesser of two evils, but the greater good.

When you make a contribution to our campaign, our revolution, you are demonstrating that our democracy is no longer for sale to the highest bidder. But Bernie and I cannot accomplish this on our own. We need your help. We need to declare our Declaration of Independence from the baneful power of Big Money, by coming together one and all.

This is the revolution you’ve been waiting for. The place is here, and the time is now. Chip in $27 to help Bernie and me take back our country from the Big Money, and defeat the oligarchy >>

Power . . . to The People.

Courage,

Rep. Alan Grayson

Why Hillary Clinton’s ‘super-predator’ concession is such a big moment for political protest

Why Hillary Clinton’s ‘super-predator’ concession is such a big moment for political protest | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Sometimes protesters create big political moments. This was one.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Never understood why blacks folks thought these two were so great even then. Clinton did many things Republicans dream of with ease. Privatize public jobs and holdings, kick people off welfare and lock up and silence street wise kids that were more likely black and at the very least didn't have a village or a First Lady that cared to raise them or guide them to a better direction. This is an excellent article. I thinks Williams needs a refund from her 500 dollars paid to ask Hillary something she didn't want to hear that wasn't an approved topic. She obviously didn't address the question and Williams surely would not want her money to back Hilary after that.
