When #JillStein ran as the #GreenParty’s presidential nominee in 2012, media attention to her candidacy was rare. Now, with two of the most unpopular presidential candidates in history, she has received widespread attention. There seems to be record interest in third party campaigns, including #LibertarianParty candidate #GaryJohnson.
...
“Put it this way: I will feel horrible if #DonaldTrump is elected, I will feel horrible if #HillaryClinton is elected, and I feel most horrible about a voting system that says: Here are two deadly choices, now pick your weapon of self-destruction,” Stein contended.
“There are differences between the two candidates and the parties. But those differences aren’t enough to save your job.”

+Abel Bermudez Unsure if you've read the previous 'Post' regarding this subject but if you haven't ...you should. You seem to be starting over from the beginning. We've been through this. You guys are
Ruminating - this cyclical cycle. Sure, yes, she may be a more appropriate candidate but she's not going to have either effect\affect on the election. She's done. She was just escorted off of Hofstra's campus by the authorities. She'll have a great chance next election. Too late for this one.



Bernie is the better candidate ....Above All

#WikiLeaks founder Julian #Assange is a hero. Like Edward #Snowden, #ChelseaManning, and other whistleblowers facing government persecution, Assange has sacrificed his personal comfort and safety to bring us the truth.

George Orwell said, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” Thanks to WikiLeaks, we know that powerful institutions have been abusing their power and lying to the public.

Liberals [aka. #LibTards] have joined #HillaryClinton’s “big nasty tent” in a very big way. They have moved far beyond the usual rationales for sticking with the Democrats and are now carrying on a full-fledged hate fest. Their targets are Green Party presidential candidate #JillStein and her running mate #AjamuBaraka, who is also a Black Agenda Report editor and columnist.

The screeds have become more and more extreme and defy the run of the mill rationales that progressives use to justify remaining within Democratic Party lines. Holding one’s nose and voting for the “lesser evil” democrat is passé. So is fear of Republican judicial appointments. Concern for abortion rights doesn’t cut it anymore.
...
The blog Wonkette called Jill Stein “cunty” and “a mendacious nihilist piece of shit.” The site Very Smart Brothas declared that a vote for Stein was akin to putting it in the trash. They also threw in a dig at #CornelWest because he dared to criticize Barack Obama. The Huffington Post chose to deride Green Party convention delegates because they ate at McDonald’s. Gawker tried to link Ajamu Baraka to holocaust denial. His unassailable human rights credentials didn’t mean much when the media decided to go into attack mode.

THOU BEING PRO GREEN , I recall when Shirley Anita St. Hill Chisholm (November 30, 1924 – January 1, 2005) ran for president she was treated to a rousing dose of complete media black out, ( with possibly the exception of KPFA a Pacifica radio station back when they did something other than fund raising for the station, that translates prior to holding their listeners as ransom victims ) who are to be congratulated for being  the only listener supported radio station in umerica,
 I do digress; Ms Chisholm upon ending her campaign and encouraging her supporters to vote for McGovern because she realized that you can't run for office when the media won't acknowledge one as a candidate running for office.
Which brings us back to the Green party today, sadly the   Green party is getting the same non inclusion treatment as Ms Chisholm.
 Green party has a truly liberal, though not revolutionary platform in any way, if elected in mass would attempt to change living conditions in this country and humanize the savage foreign affairs polices of the last seven decades, which is exactly why they,  a controlled and driven media will not and can not acknowledge the Greens as existing at all by comparison to the blue/red party.
I suspect to do so would get who ever did it  the same treatment as the heroic whistle blowers, Manning ,Snowdon, and all other Truth Sayers.
 So, I sing the Green Party Blues, who historical will fall into the same bottomless pit that the *Wobbles were pushed into.

Every four years, liberal-left politicos scream wolf about how the Republicans are going to wreak plutocratic, racist, ecocidal, sexist, repressive and war-mongering hell if they win “this, the most important election in American history.”

The politicos conveniently ignore the plutocratic, racist, ecocidal, sexist, repressive and military-imperial havoc that Democrats inflict at home and abroad in dark, co-dependent alliance with the ever more radically reactionary Republicans.

Democrats fail to acknowledge their preferred party’s responsibility for sustaining the Republicans’ continuing power, which feeds on the “dismal” Dems’ neoliberal abandonment of the nation’s working-class majority in service to transnational Wall Street and corporate America.

They commonly exaggerate the danger posed by the right-most major party and (especially) the progressivism of the not-so-left-most one.

It’s not that the liberal and progressive politicos lie about the presence of wolves. The wolves are out there. But they include Democratic wolves in fake sheep’s clothing ...

#JillStein .... #GreenParty
The Trump phenomenon is terrible, but now is no time for lesser-evil voting. A dictatorship is not knocking at the door in the United States. - 2016/09/23

As Dakota Access Pipeline Fight Grows, Where Are Obama and Clinton? -- http://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/09/07/dakota-access-pipeline-fight-grows-where-are-obama-and-clinton

As one presidential candidate faces charges for spray-painting construction equipment at a Dakota Access Pipeline #DAPL protest on Tuesday, many are calling for President Barack Obama and White House hopeful Hillary Clinton to make clear their own opposition to the controversial project.

Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier said Tuesday that #GreenParty nominee #JillStein would be charged for her participation in an action that saw about 150-200 people protest at a DAPL worksite in #NorthDakota.

Watch below as Stein tags a bulldozer with the words, "I approve this message":

#JillStein’s criticism of the #TPP and #HillaryClinton was cut from the #PBSNewshour August 23, 2016.

PBS cut out nearly two-thirds of Jill Steins answer to the last question!

The cut parts seem choppy because the quality of the livestream was terrible.

The corrupted power has taken on too much power over the people they're supposed to represent. We need a better way of counting votes for the people and not going establishment bought and payed for control to not only votes but the very corrupted machines that were in place. It's time to implement a more secured internet voting system attached to our voting #'s for a true and honest voting of the people who pay for the proper elected official both local and abroad. No more excuses. No more strategic lines or placed polling areas. No more machine miscounts or not working correctly. If we don't do something about this the end result is ownership of the populous instead of the populous having ownership.

Interrogating #UncleTom

The term itself is generally accepted to mean a person, usually a black man, who is overly eager to please white people, and is quick to betray his own race in pursuit of acceptance among whites. Thus the term is less a superficial racial epithet than it is a psychological and sociological critique, particularly when used by a black man against a fellow black man.

To be sure, racially charged language takes on varying levels of meaning and emotional gravitas depending on who uses it. In this case, however, a black leftist uses it to deconstruct the mythology surrounding the first black president.

#AjamuBaraka v. #Obama

Does anyone doubt that, from a purely objective perspective, President Obama has indeed abdicated his responsibility to improve the political, economic, and social lives of Black Americans?

A quick look at the statistics for Black America reveals that, if anything, the lives of black people have gotten considerably worse under Obama: life expectancy, per capita wealth, employment levels, infant mortality, children in poverty, etc. all point to a deterioration of the living conditions for Blacks under Obama.

Do these facts constitute betrayal of black people in the pursuit of serving the white establishment? Certainly, Ajamu Baraka argued that they do. It is hard to counter his assertion.
Ajamu Baraka is not vilified for calling Obama an Uncle Tom. He is vilified for refusing not to.
