  1. While "The World Is on Fire,' DNC Kills Resolution for Climate Forum Party had been reminded of its platform asserting it will combat the 'global climate emergency' by Andrea Germanos Update: The Democratic National Committee voted Saturday to strike down a resolution that would have allowed for a multi-candidate climate forum. "Tom Perez just killed the #ClimateDebate," the youth-led Sunrise Movement said on its Facebook page, referring to the DNC chair. Resolution 4 was seen as a compromise from a resolution calling for a presidential primary climate debate, as groups including Sunrise had demanded. That resolution was voted down Thursday at the San Francisco meeting by the DNC's Resolutions Committee, prompting outrage. Sunrise claimed a "partial victory" when Resolution 4, which would have allowed for a "multi-candidate issue-specific forum with the candidates appearing on the same state, engaging one another in discussion," passed Thursday. "We passed a resolution supporting this multi-candidate discussion and party leaders overturned it," said DNC voting member James J. Zogby in a statement Saturday. "The Democratic Party is supposed to be bottom up, not top down." [oh, naïveté...] Progressive strategist Dante Atkins shared results of Saturday's vote on Twitter, and opined that the decision was a mistake for the party and Perez. The vote was met with sharp criticism from a coalition of environmental and progressive organizations that led a pressure campaign on the DNC to hold a debate singularly-focused on the climate crisis. In a joint statement, the coalition—which includes CREDO Action, Sunrise Movement, and Climate Hawks Vote—accused Perez of "undermining the DNC's own system and bypassing the will of the more than half a million grassroots activists, more than 100 DNC members in San Francisco, and most of the Democratic presidential candidates." "There are many DNC members from across the country who believe in listening to the grassroots and engaging in a transparent, democratic process," the coalition said. "But Tom Perez made it clear today that he is not one of them." "Our entire future is at stake, but Tom Perez just swept aside the climate crisis for someone else to solve," the joint statement continued. "That isn't leadership. That isn't normal order. That isn't what it means to be a Democrat." Evan Weber, Sunrise's political director, suggested it was bad political strategy. "The Democratic Party needs the energy and motivation of young people to win in 2020," he said. "The energy around this issue has been incredibly clear, yet Tom Perez keeps shooting the party in the foot by rejecting that energy and turning it away." "Without hundreds of thousands of people raising their voices, we never would have gotten the town halls on and CNN and MSNBC," Weber's statement continued. "This is the kind of energy we need from young people to win in 2020." Earlier: As activists sustain pressure on the DNC Saturday to vote on favor of a climate debate, advocacy group Progressive Democrats of America said that three presidential candidates added their names to an open letter to the committee demanding such a single-focused debate. Welcoming the signatures from Tom Steyer, Tulsi Gabbard, and Marianne Williamson, PDA executive director Alan Minsky said, "The Democratic Party needs to show it is ready to respond to the existential climate threat by delivering the American people a televised climate debate." Tom Weis, climate advisor to PDA, suggested that if the DNC doesn't vote in favor of a resolution to hold a climate debate—which it has the chance to do on Saturday— it would defy the party's own governing platform. "How are Democrats going to mobilize America 'on a scale not seen since World War II' to combat the 'global climate emergency,' as the Democratic Party Platform asserts, if they won't even hold a climate emergency debate?" asked Weis. "The world is on fire and Democrats need to sound the alarm." ... Sunrise's call is backed by Brianna Westbrook, vice chairwoman of the Arizona Democratic Party. "Our survival is at stake. It's time for the political and media establishment to act like it," Westbrook wrote Friday in a tweet, which pointed to a Sunrise petition to the Democratic National Committee to hold a climate debate "Without a comprehensive plan regarding addressing the effects of climate change within the next 10 years," voter Tova Wolking of Oakland recently wrote in a letter-to-the-editor, "none of the candidates' other policy plans matter." https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/08/24/while-world-fire-dnc-kills-resolution-climate-forum#
  2. Tulsi is polling low but getting better. We shouldn't dismiss a candidate for polling low (and the DNC still hasn't learned their 2016 lesson, maybe they need a second one). Let's see... But the fact is the DNC and major media will never support a true progressive candidate, they will attempt to silence and smear and destroy them, because these millionaires only want to further the establishment, not work to make people's lives any better (which is why they never cover anything destructive Trump is doing politically). Here's a telling example of an "expert" on MSNBC complaining how a socialist president would be horrible and how he would rather vote for Trump if it came down to it.
  3. https://medium.com/@RobletoFire/tulsi-gabbard-has-enemies-in-high-places-6fa7da05284 Tulsi Gabbard Has Enemies In High Places Robbie Jaeger The morning of February 28, 2016, Tulsi Gabbard was in a pretty good spot. She was the rising-star Congresswoman from Hawaii, the darling of the Democratic party, whose anti-regime change platform was breathing fresh life into a stagnating institution. She was their future. But the revelations — revealed by Wikileaks through troves of leaked internal emails — that the Democratic National Committee was actively conspiring against Bernie Sanders in order to ensure Hillary Clinton won the nomination at that years convention changed everything. That day, Tulsi Gabbard took a stand. With her head held high and a smile on her face, she resigned her position as Vice-Chair of the DNC, and not only that, went against her party and publicly endorsed Sanders. The next day, she recieved this email: Now, this email is hardly new. Wikileaks released it as part of their Podesta Emails series later in 2016. So why am I even bringing it back up? Because it’s relevant, or possibly, it’s consequences are. Ever since Gabbard announced her bid for the Presidency, she has been subject to the occasional, yet predictable hit-piece. It’s usually an intentionally misrepresented version of her meeting with Syrian president Bashar Al Assad on a diplomatic fact finding mission in 2017, and her subsequent public opposition to US involvement in the conflict . Most accounts of this story either minimalize or omit completely her also meeting with leaders on the other side of their Civil War, which when coupled with her reluctance to go to war there, is done to make her seem as an “apologist” for a man accused of atrocious humanitarian abuses. The apologist label is untrue, of course, as she has called him a “brutal dictator” and even called for his execution if he were to ever be convicted of war crimes by an international court. Anyone with access to the internet and the desire to be informed can find this information, if they’re willing to search for it. Many either can’t or won’t be bothered. Who has time to read anymore? Instead, many turn to cable news outlets and social media pundits for their research and information. People look to the press because, let’s face it, they’re supposed to know more than us about what goes on behind the curtain. Make no mistake, they certainly do. They also know that most people will believe what they’re told by the mainstream media. So when it comes to the easily debunked “Assad” smear hurled at Tulsi Gabbard, one you swear must be true because you’ve heard it a hundred times, how could they all be wrong? It’s almost like they’re all reading out of the same playbook. Maybe. More likely though, they’re all on the same e-mail list. This is why that infamous email matters. The email at face value looks like nothing more than a couple of disgruntled Democrat fundraisers being salty at Gabbard for not falling in line with the DNC and backing Clinton, and telling her they’re taking their money elsewhere. But it’s the names that matter here, and not only that, but their positions at the companies they work for. The email is written by Darnell Strom on behalf of himself and a man named Michael Kives. Both men, at the time were executives at a global talent representation firm — Creative Artists Agency, or CAA. ... The two men in that email are some of the most connected and powerful men in the country, and they have grudge against Tulsi Gabbard that they have held since the day she stepped down from the DNC. Now, it could be the reason for her constant battle against slanted coverage, media smear jobs, and marginalized publicity. While a massive network of elites may do well in the world of political fundraising, ask yourself another question: How well does it work in the world of information dissemination? An agent’s job is simple, really: find the most profitable outcome for your clients interests. If those interests get roasted on national television, you have to fight back, quickly, and with a vengeance. At the second Democratic debate on CNN, Tulsi Gabbard took Kamala Harris to task on her polarizing record as California AG. The moment was a star turn for Gabbard, and a major blow for Harris on a national stage. Interests were threatened. Suddenly, that email from 2016 feels like it was written yesterday. Almost immediately the anti-Tulsi smears and hit pieces hit social media. Although Gabbard was by far the most searched candidate on Google after the debates (both debates she was in, mind you) the number one trend on Twitter that night was, you guessed it, #Assad. Anderson Cooper was asking about it in the CNN Spin Room. Ana Kasparian was tweeting ferociously about Tulsi being an apologist for dictators. Jake Tapper, Chris Cuomo, Bill Maher, Whoopi Goldberg all ask her about Assad over the ensuing days, trying to squeeze yet another denunciation that is neither warranted or necessary. It felt coordinated. For all we know, it may have been. All of those names can be connected to a handful of people, maybe even one person. Michael Kives and Darnell Strom told Tulsi Gabbard in no uncertain terms that she had made enemies out of them. When they said their company wouldn’t be helping her, can anyone argue they didn’t mean blacklist? The “company” as they call it is Hollywood. The “company” is the mainstream media. Big tech. The “company” is everything. One phone call, one email, one Twitter DM — that’s all it would take for the most trusted brand handler and talent agent in the world to get his message on every cable news show. If that message is “candidate x is bad”, and it reaches 10’s of millions of people every single day, you will win the information war. People will believe it because it’s coming from multiple “reputable” sources. If ABC, CNN, and MSNBC are all reporting the same thing, it’s probably true, right? I mean, they’re competitors, and separate entities, there’s no way they could all be calling the same guy for advice, is there? ... The most disturbing part of the email from Strom and Kives was Kives’ own response to it after it was forwarded to him. It was two words: “Hamme(r) Dropped”. They hoped it was on the nail in Gabbard’s political coffin. The establishment will never back her. They will never let her win. They’ll always dismiss her. They’ll always fear her. She stands up for what’s right. She doesn’t just fall in line. She stands for the truth. She fights. Tulsi Gabbard’s strength as a candidate is only outweighed by her power as a voice of unity in a world that the elite want kept weak and divided. That’s why they need all of the Media and Hollywood’s help to take her down. If she were to gain traction, the game is over. Many have called Gabbard an isolationist, and if that’s true, it’s only in the sense of doing the right thing, even if it means sacrificing her career, her future, and her personal goals. But that’s ok — she’s used to being on an island.
  4. About the Dayton shooter: https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/05/us/connor-betts-dayton-shooting-profile/index.html (CNN)A Twitter account that appears to belong to Dayton mass shooter Connor Betts retweeted extreme left-wing and anti-police posts, as well as tweets supporting Antifa, or anti-fascist, protesters. The most recent tweet on the @iamthespookster account was on August 3, the day of the shooting, when he retweeted a post saying, "Millenials have a message for the Joe Biden generation: hurry up and die." He also retweeted messages supporting Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. The user's Twitter bio reads: "he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / I'm going to hell and I'm not coming back." One tweet used the hashtag #HailSatan. Police are still trying to determine what motivated Betts to kill nine people early Sunday morning in a popular nightlife district in downtown Dayton. He was killed by police officers on patrol nearby 30 seconds after he opened fire. In the hours before the Dayton shooting, the Twitter account "liked" several tweets about a shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left 22 dead, including one supporting gun control and others that called the El Paso shooting suspect a "terrorist," and a "white supremacist." The account also retweeted posts against ICE agents, including one that said, "these people are monsters," and multiple posts condemning police, and supporting Antifa protesters, who often use violent tactics. There were also many tweets of selfies, photos with a friend and ordinary memes and nonpolitical content. The account was suspended by Twitter on Sunday evening. A Twitter spokesperson would not comment on the account, only saying in a statement, "We're proactively removing content that violates our policies and will be engaged with law enforcement, as appropriate." Former classmates say gunman had a 'hit list' in high school As a high school student, the gunman had a "hit list" of classmates he wanted to "kill" or "rape," said former students who said they were told by school officials they were on the list. Spencer Brickler said a counselor at Bellbrook High School in Ohio told him he and his sister were on Connor Betts' hit list. Brickler recalled sitting on a school bus about nine years ago when he saw Betts getting escorted away by officers investigating the threats. "He was kind of dark and depressive in high school," said Brickler, who was a freshman when the school counselor told him about the hit list. He said he had no idea what prompted Betts, then a sophomore, to put him or his sister on the list. Connor Betts is shown with his sister Megan. Police said Betts killed Megan and eight others Sunday. Authorities searched the Betts' family home in Bellbrook, a suburb southeast of Dayton, and uncovered writings that expressed an interest in killing people, two law enforcement sources told CNN. But the writings did not indicate any racial or political motive, sources said. Former classmate said he called police A former high school classmate of the shooter said he and another classmate called police years ago to warn them that Betts had a "kill list." David Partridge said a friend had showed him text messages she received from Betts referencing his "kill list," and that one of Partridge's relatives was on it. Partridge told his friend he was going to call police and said he convinced her to do the same. "I said, 'Hey, I don't want to drag you into this, but we have to go to the police. This guy could go to the school, he could kill people, he could hurt my family, he could hurt you,'" Partridge recalled telling his friend. In an interview with CNN, Partridge said he believed the incident occurred about 10 years ago, when he was a sophomore at Bellbrook High School. He said police took his friend's cell phone as part of their investigation. After calling police, Partridge said he confronted Betts over the phone. "(I) said, 'Hey ... I hear there is this hit list, and you've got my family on there. What is this about? Why have you written these things?' He was really avoidant about me confronting him about this, denying it, and not angry, but just shocked that someone had gone up to him and said, 'What is this, Connor?'" Partridge recalled. Partridge said he witnessed Betts being detained by police at school the following day. CNN has repeatedly requested records pertaining to Betts from the Bellbrook-Sugarcreek school district. Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Schools Superintendent Douglas A. Cozad confirmed that Betts was a student who graduated in 2013. In a statement, the superintendent said they need to get approval from their legal counsel or a court before releasing records. Although Betts is deceased, Ohio law offers broader protections for students' records and "we have no official documentation of the student's death at this time," the statement said. CNN requested records from the Sugarcreek Police Department, and they responded with a file on Betts that showed "sealed records" had been expunged. A 'kill list' for boys and a 'rape list' for girls Another former high school classmate, who asked not to be identified out of concerns for his privacy, also recalled being summoned to a school administrator's office and being told he was "number one" on the list of students Betts wanted to kill. He said the list was separated into two columns: a "kill list" for boys and a "rape list" for girls. Another source, who also asked not to be named for privacy reasons, told CNN that Betts sent messages about the list to one of his classmates, who told her mother. Her mother then notified the police, who came to the school and interviewed people on the list individually in the school's office. "Personally, it freaked me out," said the classmate who was told she was on the list. "I started having panic attacks in the school building." A fourth person, who also asked not to be named for privacy reasons, said, "All I know is there was a list of violent actions and a list of names including mine." She said some of the names were female students who, like her, turned him down for dates. She said Betts often simulated shooting other students and threatened to kill himself and others on several occasions. "He loved to look at you and pretend to shoot with guns, guns with his hands," she said. Another former classmate, who was not on the list, said he met Betts through a "friend of a friend." He said whenever they hung out, Betts would talk about violence and use harsh language about women, like calling them "sluts." Betts' former classmates told CNN that they recalled Betts being removed from the school for at least a year, but that he later returned to Bellbrook High. The shooter later attended Sinclair Community College in Dayton but was not enrolled in the summer term, the school's president Steve Johnson said. Not everyone remembered Betts as a troubled teen. Betts' friend Brad Howard described the gunman as "a really nice kid" who was quiet and kept to himself. Howard said he grew up with Betts and knew him for over 20 years. He said news of Betts' final act was "a kick in the teeth" to the community.
  5. I can't believe it's going to be Biden... Ugh. Just, no. Please at least Sanders or Warren, please.
  6. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) joined a bipartisan coalition of 238 colleagues in introducing the Equality Act (H.R. 5). The legislation would extend civil rights protections to the LGBTQ community by prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in education, employment, housing, credit, Federal jury service, public accommodations, and the use of Federal funds. etc. "Kamala Harris was no 'progressive prosecutor'" (Lara Bazelon, New York Times): “Time after time, when progressives urged her to embrace criminal justice reforms as a district attorney and then the state’s attorney general, Ms. Harris opposed them or stayed silent. Most troubling, Ms. Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors.” (https://www.democracynow.org/2019/7/2/kamala_harris_not_a_progressive_prosecutor)
  7. War is peace. Having a heart in the right place means murdering faceless foreigners (by remote control, if possible). Check's in the mail. What's not to like? The new iPhone's coming out, hear is gr8.
  8. Yeah, she only calls him a "brutal dictator", which is much worse than a war criminal. As for meeting with sketchy people: Harris herself met with Netanyahu in november 2017, just one day after he announced his plan to expel (or imprison) 40,000 African asylum seekers from the country. She didn't seem too bothered by it. I guess she was trying to smooth things over.
  9. And the wonderful Marianne Williamson was the most searched candidate :
  10. He must have some dirt on her. She can't leave. Or it's the money and leisure life.
  11. Although Marianne Williamson may appear kooky, and she probably has no chance at winning the primaries, I'm really glad she's running. She's one of a kind and is very intelligent.
  12. I really like that NBC is doing these townhall gatherings in swing states, people need to talk to each other and hear each other.
