Location: Brunswick, Maine, United States

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.

THIS AND THAT


  • I taped my public access TV show today and my guest was Jerry Provencher from Bath who is one of the leaders in the Occupy Brunswick. Jerry was a great guest and did a remarkable job making all the key connections - my favorite moment was when he said the U.S. military empire was essentially spread around the world to the benefit of corporate capital. I can't wait to see the final interview. The folks at Harpswell TV where we film the show have to do the final production work and then put it on DVD's for me to send around the state. The show now plays on 13 public access stations in Maine.
  • Latest word from Jeju Island is that South Korean Navy might begin blasting the rocky coastline at any moment........they've been held off for a few weeks by public pressure but they are itching to begin the explosions of the sacred Guroembi. If you'd like to help you can send a message demanding a stop to Navy base construction blasting. Write to:

    Woo Keun-Min, Jeju Island governor (Email: kmj5369@jeju.go.kr)

    Kim Kwan-Jin, South Korean Defense Minister (Email: mndpao@nate.com)
  • Russian military leaders have warned the U.S. to back-off any plans to attack Iran. This whole situation is getting very dangerous and I fear that Obama's war team and Israel are like a run-a-way freight train heading down the mountain.
  • It is interesting to watch how many Democrats on Facebook spend much of their time trashing one Republican presidential candidate after the other. They went from Palin to Bachmann, then to Perry, then Cain and now Gingrich. What you rarely see is Democrats talk about what they stand for, their vision of the future, nor do you often see the Democrat activists/operatives standing up against corporate domination of the political system and the economy. They have tried to rip off the Occupy movement message - with slogans such as Occupy the voting booth - but they really don't have a message of their own. That is why so many independent thinking activists have left the Democratic party tent. It's empty.
