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.

The Republican national convention begins in Tampa next week and 15,000 journalists are expected to be there to cover the very boring event.

Cops from around Florida will pour into Tampa to join the police state that will be established there to make sure that any real displays of democratic action are few and far between.

Already the cops and media and pumping the public with fear about anarchist bombings and such.  Same modus operandi (MO) they always use.

Notice at the end the "protesters" chant USA, USA.....not a chant we usually do.  And see them throwing the green tennis balls.  Nice touch.

Just a couple things missing though - no pepper spray and head busting.  I guess they are saving that for the real citizens.
