I have taken some heat over my criticism of Julian Assange. I do support the principle of whistle blowing and all of those that support it. Today, Assange is not acting as a whistle blower. He is acting as his own agent, clearly trying to control the results of our elections. His timing is strategically placed to give the advantage to Trump. He absolutely hates Hillary Clinton, he has made that clear. He has never even lived in this country and he is using the cover of the …support for his original noble mission to control the results of our elections. Why didn’t he release these before or after the election? Nina Khrushcheva, the granddaughter of Nikita Khrushchev, firmly believes that Putin wants Trump to win because he feels that if Trump becomes president, the country would fall apart on many levels. I think most of us agree that Putin is right. Mr. Assange will never live under a Trump presidency, so he doesn’t fully appreciate the importance of a Trump-free country. This is not whistle blowing, the is an effort to control our elections, and it will clearly help Trump win, especially if he holds on to some of the most egregious emails for an October surprise.

I am so proud that we have such a strong woman likely to be the next president of the United States. It is sad to say, but I don’t think everyone is proud.
In fact, I think there are many that feel threatened by such a strong woman. The day Hillary Clinton became First Lady, and began working on establishing health insurance for all, was just too much for the Good Old Boys (GOP) and conservative Democrats to handle.
We need to look past the Republicans’ effort who are trying everything and anything to keep this wonderful strong woman from becoming president. They have been trying, in vain, to discredit Hillary Clinton for years. We cannot let them get away with it.
So we are back. Back in the windy world of presidential politics.
As a person whose goal is to seek and disseminate the truth, I will say that I believe Bernie Sanders is the most truthful candidate I have ever seen. He wants to work within the rigged system, then mobilize the American people to fix the system with their votes. The current system is set up so private companies can give a lot of money to politicians so that they will legislate policies that enable these companies to make more money. This prevents our elected officials from doing what is best for We the People. If these politicians do NOT do what the private companies want, they will give their money to another candidate, a candidate that they CAN control.
Well, the days are over when the People vote against there own self interests by believing the false rhetoric “take our country back” or “make America great again.” What the People didn’t understand, until finally Senator Sanders is now telling them, is that when they say “take our country back,” what they really mean is, take it away from We the People, and give it to wealthy. When they say “make America great again,” what they are really saying is make the wealthiest Americans great again. And the word “again” is really unnecessary because it always was great for the wealthy, and it always will be great for the wealthy unless if we, yes, We the People, stand up and VOTE!
The voters of yesterday thought that government was too big. They thought they wanted smaller government. If the government is made smaller, all that extra “power and money” of the government will NOT be given to We the People! It will be given to the wealthy, the big corporations, the banks, the 1/10 of 1 percent. If the voters want to “reduce the size of government,” we the People will NOT be the beneficiaries! We the People will not prosper. The wealthy will prosper. The wealthy will take control, doing what is best for their profit line, definitely NOT what is best for We the People.
We the People, and only We the People have the power, but we must use that power by voting! And we must vote for someone who is going to keep We the People in power by taking that power and money away from the wealthy, the big corporations, the banks, the 1/10 of 1 percent. That wealth does not trickle down. That wealth does NOT create jobs. If it did, We the People would be getting richer, too. But, as we all know, the rich are getting richer and the We are getting poorer.
Bernie Sanders is the only one who can effectively bring this truthful message to We the People, and enable Us to rebuild this nation, to make is strong, to make it safe, to make it the envy of all the world.
I know that many people just vote for the status quo and elect the name that they know. This is the greatest mistake that we could make, and we will all pay for it later.
Who is Deb Mel? She is the daughter of our former Alderman Richard Mel. Does that qualify her? Absolutely not! Is she a name that you know? Absolutely, but voting for her would be exactly how kings are made. The offspring automatically inherit the “thrown.” The major difference here is that we have a choice!
Deb Mel has got the big machine money behind her. Does that make her the right person for the job? Absolutely NOT. Her family friends are mailing out flyers, feeding you with one liners that are total distortions of the truth.
For example, I recently received a flying saying Meegan was going to raise your taxes! This is way off base. Meegan wants to, in effect, LOWER the property taxes for the middle class and poor working families so that the wealthiest Illinoisans will have to step up and pay their fair share. Are you one of those wealthy Illinoisans? Probably not. So why would you vote to benefit the most wealthy at *your* expense.
You need to get past these one liners and think about the fact that, if you are middle class, or the working poor, or just simply a part of our forgotten underclass, voting for name recognition is a vote against your own best interests!
There is no “trickle” down of money from the wealthy. There is no reason to vote for Deb Mel, who is simply a mouth piece for Rahm Emanuel. These polished, high powered, well-funded candidates look so wonderful, but don’t be fooled.
I strongly support Tim Meegan for Alderman, because I know firsthand that he cares about this community. He is extremely committed to us, the people of the 33 ward, our schools, our children, our jobs, our homes and our lives. He is a very smart, compassionate family man who would put us first.
Mel and the machine is interested in digging deeper roots in their careers by greasing the pockets of their wealthy donors.
Meegan is interested in digging deeper into solutions for our community, solutions that would make all of our lives better.
Which sounds better to you?
UPDATE: 1/8/11 Sarah Palin’s website “Takebackthe20.com” has been mysteriously taken down, but not before I made a copy of it. Visit Take Back the 20.com to see my copy of this website!
Could this be the first shot fired in the war declared on the American People by the right wing fanatics?
USA Today Reported on September 24, 2010
In a website launched on Thursday, the six-month anniversary of the health care law, Palin puts a bull’s-eye on 20 House districts under a headline that reads,
Included among Palin’s Democratic targets: North Dakota’s at-large Rep. Earl Pomeroy, Southeast Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and Virginia Rep. Tom Perriello.
The map, reproduced here from Sarah Palin’s website, showed a bulls eye as seen looking down the barrel of a rifle. The heading reads “We’ve diagnosed the problem… Help us prescribe the solution.”
Is this the new culture of politics that the extreme religious right wish to promote?
The major media outlets have now been reporting that the momentum for Obama’s Healthcare Reform has been decreasing. This is true. But, if you do not ask the question why, then it is a very misleading truth.
The media has been showing town halls from across the United States. These town halls do not reflect the thinking points of the American people, but rather the talking points of the republican operatives. These operatives have bussed volunteers into the town hall meetings with a packet containing the talking points, including tips on how to disrupt a meeting and prevent the speaker from even getting started. These points are all lies: Obama will create “death panels,” the government is going make decisions about our health care, you will be bogged down in government paperwork, etc. This was designed to change the thinking of the American people to withdraw any support they might have had for President Obama’s healthcare reform. But this new thinking was based on the LIES they see and hear on their T.V.!
We cannot allow the lies of the republican party to mislead the American public into believing that Obama’s health care plan would “kill” seniors, or come between you and your doctor. How absurd!
The common shout out at these town hall meetings “Keep the government out of my Medicare!” demonstrates how little the health care opponents actually know. Just in case, I will state here that Medicare is a public option for seniors. They get excellent care! Seniors get the care they need to continue living, even if their quality of life has deteriorated. I have seen it in my own family. Care was never, ever denied to our grandmother even though she had no quality of life. Medicare is not a profit driven company. It is designed to take care of our citizens who have retired and have no private health insurance. And, by the way, there is no paperwork!
Do you know who is killing people? Do you know who comes between you and your doctor? The private health care companies!! Currently, THEY decide, NOT YOUR DOCTOR, what care you should have, what care is critical or life threatening. The CEO’s of private national health care companies, making billions of dollars, keep their profits high by withholding health care wherever possible. The more claims they deny, the more money in the pockets of these billionaires. Health Care is a profit driven business.
Now, who do you trust? The private companies? Remember, their only concern is profit! Or the United States government, who is taking criminal action against those companies for denying coverage that are causing people to die or loose everything.
These lies have started with Betsy McCoy, who is a part of the Hudson Institute. They are the source of ResistNet.com. These are the people organizing and bussing people to the town halls. This website posts death threats to President Obama and compares Obama to Hitler. We cannot allow these fringe groups to control the national dialog on health care.
When Sara Palin was introduced to the American People, it didn’t take but a minute or two before she blew out her first lie when she said “thanks but no thanks” on that bridge to nowhere.
She not only supported this bridge, that would have brought only a few dozen people to their homes, but fought hard to secured a $223 million earmark in 2005.
As soon as she realized the entire country was making a mockery of this bridge idea, Palin called off construction midstream, and NEVER RETURNED THE MONEY!
Now how well can we trust a politician who, in her first few minutes of her first national appearance while the entire nation was watching, choses to include an easily verifiable LIE!
