For anyone wondering just what Senator +Bernie Sanders stands for, and what his political platform is for the 2016 presidential elections, FeelTheBern.com is an excellent site to visit. I just recently discovered it myself. It's all made by volunteers, though it thoroughly documents Sanders' views and voting records.

If anyone asks about where Bernie Sanders stands on a certain issue, this is a great source to use!

Jill Stein selects human rights activist Ajamu Baraka as Vice-Presidential running mate. Despite speculations that Nina Turner from Cleveland, OH might take the VP slot after Jill Stein offered on July 31, Turner ultimately turned down the offer on the basis that she still wanted to reform the Democratic Party to fit her progressive goals. While multiple people—including Chris Hedges, Margaret Flowers, Kevin Zeese, and Aaron Dixon—were also considered for the position, Jill Stein ultimately chose Ajuma Baraka, as explained in the article below.

Jill Stein is expected to become the Green Party nominee on Sunday, August 6, at the Green Party convention in Houston, TX.

Here is an excellent article from +The Independent's Voices column that refutes the nonsensical vegophobia and scaremongering that the mainstream media has pushed so hard to keep meat profits (and cancer rates) sky high. It also counters the notion that veganism is extreme by pointing out that carnism is what's really the extreme dietary ideology. I highly recommend it.

Here is yet another excellent lecture by professor Richard D. Wolff, given on October 27, 2015 and entitled "Economic Justice, Sustainability and Transition Beyond Capitalism". It was given at the UW Center for Communication and Civic Engagement at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.

This is the Economic Update on Global Capitalism for the month of July 2016, entitled "The Great Emerging Conflict: Capitalism vs Worker Coops". I highly recommend this video, as I do all the content from Democracy at Work and all the lectures by professor Richard D. Wolff.

In this video, the following three major topics are discussed:

1. Signs of capitalism's exhaustion
2. Signs of where economic change is headed
3. Why and how economists are fighting over this change

Multiple minor topics are also discussed, such as Bernie Sanders' endorsement of Hillary Clinton.

Here is the monthly Economic Update on Global Capitalism for June 2016, entitled "The Costs of Capitalist Decline in North America and Europe". It came a bit later in the month than usual, and I failed to share it at that time. I highly recommend this video to anyone interested in understanding global capitalism, or anyone who is interested in economic and political lectures in general. I also recommend all the previous monthly updates as well as the weekly updates provided via podcast.

The three major topics of discussion are as follows:

1. Economic slowdown in US: why and what it means
2. Street battles in France: why and what they mean (Wolff just back from Paris)
3. The battle over Brexit: why and what it means

Puerto Rico, national parks, Cleveland RNC, and other minor topics are also discussed.

Cornel West: Why I Endorse Green Party's Jill Stein Over "Neoliberal Disaster" Hillary Clinton

Ralph Nader comments on the current state of the election.

Most notable in his commentary is Ralph Nader's statements about Bernie Sanders' endorsement of Hillary Clinton. In his opinion, Sanders' endorsement was a masterful attempt at holding Hillary Clinton accountable to her campaign promises by giving it widespread media attention. Moreover, it sets Hillary Clinton up for "political betrayal" because if (and when) she fails to live to her campaign promises as president, Bernie Sanders can use it as an opportunity to call her out, discredit her presidency, and incite a popular response that will attempt to hold her accountable to her promises.

Overall, Ralph Nader provided an excellent analysis.

Jill Stein of the Green Party has arrived in Burlington, VT for undisclosed reasons. Some are speculating that Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein are having talks as rumors about Sanders defecting to the Green Party remain popular and thousands of Berners are moving to supporting Stein after he endorsed Hillary Clinton. Jill Stein does have multiple campaign events scheduled in the area, however, so perhaps she is only in Burlington to prepare for those.
