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.

Palestine in America

National Guard soldiers stand among protesters during another night of protests over the police shooting of Keith Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina, Sept. 22, 2016. 

It happens practically every day now.  Cops shoot another black person down in the streets of America.  It's a war on the poor - the unwanted, the superfluous populations.

I've long asked - after all the wars and killing of innocent people around the world by the US, what makes you think we here in America are so special that they won't at some point do the same to us?

Well it is happening now - and first they come for the blacks and those of Muslim faith, then they come for the Hispanics, then they come for the peace activists, and then they come for you but no one is left to defend you.....

This nightmare will be Obama's legacy.  He escalated Bush's wars.  He kept the military budget at maximum levels, he worked with Congress to pass a health law that only benefits the insurance companies, he continued with cuts in social spending, he has expanded domestic surveillance by the NSA and Homeland Security, he worked to send $38 billion in weapons sales to Israel......

When did Obama ever fight for the black community?  When did he go to the mat for urban America the way he fights for the corporate Trans-Pacific Partnership trade bill?

The American people are now being brought onto the reservation by the pirates that run our government.

The US has declared a global war - against all people except the 1%.
