I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

UNTIL THE LAST DROP OF OIL IS GONE

Just back late last night from Prague. The NO-Radar conference turned out to be excellent and the city is absolutely one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. (More on all that later.)

While there I heard a bit about Bush threatening WW III if Iran does not get on their knees and submit to his every whim. And even if they did he'd likely still attack them since it is really about their oil and his desire to control all of the Middle East until the last drop of oil is gone.

While at the conference I met good folks from all over Europe who are just fed up with the USA. They are convinced that our country is leading a global corporate fascist order.

They also asked this question over and over again: Will the next election in the U.S. bring any real change if the Democrats take over?

My response: NO

Their response back to me: Laughter, because they already knew the answer to their own question.
