Occupy The Polls

On the same day #BernieSanders officially endorsed #HillaryClinton for the Democratic nomination and declared she will make an "outstanding president," presumptive Green Party nominee #JillStein was having none of it.

"If you don't want to vote for a war monger or racist billionaire, there are more options. The political revolution will keep going," Stein tweeted in the hour preceding Sanders' announcement alongside Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Virginia Gov. #TerryMcAuliffe, longtime best friend to the Clintons, said Tuesday that he believes #HillaryClinton will support the #TPP trade deal if elected president, with some tweaks.

“I worry that if we don’t do TPP, at some point China’s going to break the rules -- but Hillary understands this,” he said in an interview after his speech on the main stage at the Democratic National Convention.

#RollCall ... #Bitches
"Listen, she was in support of it. There were specific things in it she wants fixed,” McAuliffe said.

'We Made History': Watch as #BernieSanders Addresses His 1900 Delegates -- http://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/07/25/we-made-history-watch-sanders-addresses-his-1900-delegates

"Make no mistake about it—we have made history," a hoarse Bernie Sanders told a room full of adoring delegates on the first day of the Democratic National Convention #DNC in Philadelphia on Monday.

"We have shown the entire world that our ideas are not some crazy, wild, utopian fantasies," he said, "they are ideas supported by working people from one end of this country to the other."

According to the study, to manipulate decision-makers and public opinion in the EU, #Russia uses scalable tools that vary from one country to the next.

Russia, the study helpfully reveals, ignites latent anti-Americanism in France, focuses on business ties in Italy, builds on religion in countries with an Orthodox majority, and supports the idea of pan-Slavism in Slavic countries, to name just a few #agitprop gambits.

#DontFuckWithTheRussians
A European People’s Party think tank has released a research paper speculating that Russia secretly promotes a nefarious agenda in Europe through a complex of Kremlin-funded organizations operating in the region.

While on one side I don't doubt it's possible. On the other side of things I kind of doubt it's that nefarious. Putin is by no means a good guy but I don't buy into America's anti putin agenda for a single second.

He's the only person trying to block America from starting another oil war in Syria and then turning it into a client state like we did iraq

#Wikileaks founder Julian #Assange says his next release of Clinton emails will be more damaging than the last.

Assange was interviewed on Britain’s ITV Network two weeks ago by Robert Preston, ITV’s political editor.

“I am basing this on what Mr. Trump himself has said,” the president said. “And I think that — #DonaldTrump's gotten pretty favorable coverage — back in Russia.”

The president’s comments add considerable heft to mounting evidence that Russian hackers were behind the DNC hack.

Obama said that the #FBI is still investigating the origin of the hack, but he acknowledged that “experts have attributed this to the Russians.”

#Obozo #Obomber #Obuttocks v. #DNCleak 
“Anything's possible,” Obama said in an interview with NBC News.

I hear a lot of people who say they register as independent and always will. Independent isn't a party,so as long as you don't choose, you will only have two parties from which to choose. If you change to Green party, you can help get a third party into the debates and bring an end to the two party system. Or you can stay independent and never have to worry about which party to choose or who will govern the country.

As the #DNC ramps up to full force, new polling data from Gallup suggests that #HillaryClinton's favorability ratings have dipped to their lowest levels in the 24 years of her public career.

This poll should come as little surprise to anyone who watched the DNC fiasco yesterday where the crowd of Democrats often erupted into chants of "Lock Her Up." 
Recent Gallup polling data paints a pretty dire picture for Hillary.

For Many #BernieSanders supporters, the move to the Green Party’s #JillStein was easily laid out. On Monday afternoon, hours before their candidate took the Democratic convention stage to reiterate his support for #HillaryClinton to the boos of some of his own delegates, a young man with a loudspeaker directed protesters to a park down the road from the Wells Fargo Center.

“The real revolution is down the street, to your left,” he told them, as others handed out #Jill2016 posters to people still wearing their “Bernie 2016” shirts.

+Sardeth Wynn Wow! Everything you accused me of is precisely what you're suffering from. You're misreading my intentions completely!
This is quite simple. In America, we vote for President and the person with the mst votes wins.
Hillary has been losing support since she announced. Hers is a candidacy of attrition.
Trump has been gaining support AND unfavorability since he announced.
The country is eager for a 3rd Party. #NeverTrump and #NeverHillary are basically household words at this point.
Johnson and Stein's favorables are very high and it's likely they'll be at the 15% threshold for a true 4-way race.
Now maybe you didn't notice but there was this candidate named Bernie Sanders who "had no chance of winning" in November and he went on to win the DNC by such a large number that HRC had to cheat massively to win.
Do you think Stein and Johnson won't team up to make sure votes are counted accurately in the general?
They both have a chance. While my support currently stands with Stein, Johnson would make a better President than either Clinton or Trump. He's the lesser of two evils I could live with.
So ...
- I'm not dividing anything! You're implying unity where there is none.
- Media ringer? You do know what Hillbots are, right? Stein bots don't exist.
- Stein is not a "One Issue Cadidate." That's just patently idiotic.
- Stein has a strong likelihood of being elected in November. Bernie got around 13 million votes. Those people and all those who were disenfranchised in the primary (about twice that number) will turn out for Stein! 26 million people in a 4-way race where 110 million votes ... that's a good chance!
- I am not angry at the DNC or Hillary. They're corporatists who did what corporatists do. I refuse to support the Oligarchy. It's that simple.
- You're obsessed with "control." People vote and the Presidency is decided ... unless Hillary cheats again. And she will because no one sane will vote for her.
We vote for who we want of the available options. I want Stein because the totality of her platform I see as best for this country and the world.
I don't like Johnson but he won't burn the country to the ground.

Clintonites on the #DemocraticParty platform committee knocked out condemnations of Israeli “settlements” and “occupation” from the platform out of fear of #SheldonAdelson, a #BernieSanders rep on that committee said today in Philadelphia.

#JamesZogby of the Arab American Institute spoke at a panel convened by the US Campaign to End the Occupation and the American Friends Service Committee alongside the Democratic convention.
Democrats can’t oppose occupation and settlements in the Democratic platform “because Sheldon Adelson will come out against us,” Clintonites told Sanders rep James Zogby, Zogby re…

Fighting for Internet Freedom ... among other things
Introduction

#GreenPirateAlliance -- [alternative energy, environmental protection; open internet, open government; legalized marijuana]

... our goal is to encourage #Occupy to embrace the Pirate Party

We support both PPI and WPP [World Pirate Party] strategies.

Below is the WPP manifesto (as presented by Adbusters):

We, the people of Planet Earth, hereby launch the World Pirate Party, a global horizontal people’s party for all those who are ready to stand up for and fight for our blue-green-black platform:

Blue – the color of intellect and imagination – stands for mental environmentalism and our party’s commitment to the vision of internet democracy championed by the Pirate Parties of Europe.

Green – the hue of Earth and immortality – stands for the four-decade-strong resistance movement against environmental degradation which we must win for a sane, sustainable future.

Black – the tenor of struggle and justice – stands for our party’s promise to abolish corporate personhood and institute a new global world order in which corporations bow to the will of the people.

                                                      ...  ... ...


Disclaimer: OTP (Occupy The Polls) is not an "officially" endorsed #occupy page. We have been involved with Occupy since day 1 (Sept 17, 2011), but the movement has always had a somewhat ambiguous stance on the utility of voting. Understandably. We feel, however, that in addition to occupying, citizens need to become radically politicized.
