A real eye-opener over at a GP Facebook page. Anarchists are running the show despite a “key value” about “nonviolence.” You can demonstrate their incitement to violence against humans, with just a few well-chosen words. But, in wishy-washy hand-wringing style that’s okay there. It’s all okay.

Now the Green Party itself is most certainly not okay.

Anarchists are not Greens

The Green page moderators lack judgment and awareness.

The anti-Trump inauguration protests were reduced to these images of Black bloc assholes smashing things, all other messages drowned out and cut. That is what America saw, and it’s a good thing the Woman’s March happened the day after to reset the script and displace the negative Blitzkrieg.

Greens, by associating themselves with those people are ensuring their defeat, demonization, and potentially even political repression as the nation lurches in a more fascistic direction.

Anarchists espousing violence cannot be assimilated or tolerated. They are infiltrating the Party, and many have been paid agents provocateurs. If you’re going to do politics, especially in America, you need to know this and act on it swiftly.

This is how you are discredited and defeated:

I’m seriously about to quit the Greens altogether. Too clueless, too useless.

We are at the brink of WW3 again, already.
Tillerson, in diplomatic debut, urges Russia to pull back in eastern Ukraine

Unbelievable, blatant lies: 

“The conflict began when Russia annexed Crimea in 2014,” 

NO, Washington Post, it most certainly did not. You missed the illegal Washington/EU sponsored coup of January and February of 2014. That’s quite a deliberate omission, making you, clearly, FAKE NEWS again.

The elected President of Ukraine was violently overthrown by extreme right fascist parties backed by Victoria Nuland and Obama. The USA supported neo-nazis, and the people of the eastern Ukraine rejected their foreign-sponsored debacle. THAT is when the “conflict began.”

A Strategy to Grow

Joe Giambrone

I’ve written previously about a three-pronged strategy to increase numbers by creating tools to empower the base. Without these numbers the party will remain stagnated and ineffectual. That is the project. That is the task at hand.

My suggestions related to the US Green Party, but as Abby Martin pointed out to me, future change may need to come from another party altogether. The organizing principles are the same, to establish a grassroots party online, which is relatively cheap, efficient, and able to grow exponentially as needed.

While the current President received 63 million votes last November, the Korean Youtube music video Gangnam Style has “been viewed over 2.75 billion times.” Who could have predicted that before it happened?

Jill Stein appeared on many television screens in 2016, but one message was missing from most of her appearances:

Go and Register with the Green Party

Presidential campaigns focus on personalities and on transitory issues, but the simple call to recruit new people gets lost in the noise. That is a strategic blunder. All publicity should include a call to recruit the viewers.

A second important point to make is that registering does not mean one has to vote that way. It’s not mandatory, but it does send a message to the competing parties when one party’s affiliation grows (or conversely shrinks). This act is arguably as important as voting because it signals to the political class, to the ruling class, what America currently cares about.

The existing national Green Party infrastructure must put all of its attention and all of its resources toward building a viable party, which means millions—and then tens of millions—of new Greens. This goal is so obvious and vital that it seems to be routinely overlooked.

How to Drum Up New Members?

Before moving forward, it is imperative to study the competition. Here are three highly relevant websites:

https://www.gop.com
https://democrats.org
https://go.berniesanders.com

These should be mined for ideas, as they are well-designed and professional, and they appear to be winning the race.

But grassroots alternatives do not come with money, or checkbook activism, and so important differences must be acknowledged in terms of available resources. The only resource, which a grassroots movement can bank on today, is people power. Committed members are the strength of the party, but commitment without the tools to succeed is futile. This is already proven in election after election defeat.

Building Tools to Compete

Three tools need immediate implementation:

1. A landing page (much like the three websites listed above) will collect email addresses and names and help new people register with the party and join a community to leverage their efforts. People want to help, and they should be assisted. The website must aid with networking and provide information and high-quality content for the new members to share easily with their own circles.

2. A message forum can allow the entire party to communicate with itself in local groups, and additionally organized by issues and campaigns. In order to be effective the party must be organized in some kind of cohesive way. It is not today. A message board forum is a cheap, easy, proven mechanism for achieving this.

3. A media library is vital in today’s environment of flowing video, audio and images. It’s not enough to type text. Greens need the audio-visual content of the Party at their fingertips in order to create new content, be that videos, audio podcasts, graphic memes, or articles. The Party should be putting its best face forward and archiving all the quality imagery and other content that sells the Party to strangers.

Further, the landing page can be as bold as a complete reinvention and makeover of the Party: Green Party 2.0, for example. I lean toward the Greens because they have ballot access across the country—a huge hurdle overcome—as well as local-level victories to cite.

These three prongs of the larger strategy to recruit millions are easy to digest, logical, and bullet-proof. The only problem I see is that they are not being implemented. We cannot wait for a savior to come along some day but must act to defend our interests today by organizing.

The failure to offer viable progressive alternatives has allowed the United States to drift rightward, and now toward open fascism. Only by creating a movement that moves will we reverse this pendulum.

As the current regime destroys the last century’s progress, people will be motivated to resist. They need a place to resist, a real resistance that will not sell them out to the next corporatist warmonger who comes along from the DNC.

Obama Opens NSA’s Vast Trove of Warrantless Data to Entire Intelligence Community, Just in Time for Trump

Jimmy Dore addressed this in his podcast. When he did, it dawned on me why Barack Obama may have done this. This is a hypothetical…

“Jimmy – Let me play devil’s advocate for a second.

Obama knows that false flags are real, particularly 9/11 and the Boston Bombing. US intelligence knew all about both sets of perps long before they struck, probably others as well, and they made Treasonous decisions not to stop them.
How can this be stopped?
If the entire intelligence community can see the raw data, then competing agencies can figure out what the others are up to. It becomes harder to hide covert ops on American soil, those aided and abetted by foreign governments like Saudi Arabia.
Could Obama have deliberately sought to empower the intelligence apparatus in order to prevent Trump from greenlighting the next 9/11? It now becomes considerably more difficult to hide one’s Treason.
Just throwing that out there. It’s a possibility.”

Masterminds – My Review

I’m a sucker for White Trash Theater. Still laughing over this one. They amped it up with enough over-the-top shtick that I should be on edge and suspicious, but the true story was so captivating that they got away with it, another kind of heist in broad daylight.

Heist films are a niche where cinema triumphs. The tension, the ticking clock, the suspicious characters, and the reversals all play to the strengths of the medium. There’s something about the allure of the criminal lifestyle and the inevitable complications that grabs the audience by the genitals and won’t let go.

I’m not always impressed with Zack Galifanakis, but he pulled this one off. The others contributed too. It’s a twisty, turning exploration of the American Dream.

My favorite heist/comedy was A Fish Called Wanda, which stands as the best of them all. But second was Disorganized Crime, and now…

Covering Trump the Reuters Way
PS.

Heather dot Carpenter at thomsonreuters dot com

Dear Heather,

I am heartened by Reuters’ policy of fairness and impartiality in the age of Trump. Fifteen years ago I had to personally enter the game because the September 11th attacks were not being honestly reported by America’s newsrooms. Those attacks have arguably given us everything that has followed since.

Specifically, it is no longer unknowable that members of the US administration committed Treason in deliberately allowing the attacks to proceed. The 28 (29) redacted pages of the Joint Inquiry tie the government of Saudi Arabia directly to the hijackers through numerous connections. The US administrations which have aided and abetted in that cover-up have committed Treason. This is undisputable. It is not, however, the narrative that US corporate media is allowed to tell its audience.

We know that the CIA was well aware of the San Diego Al Qaeda cell for 16 months prior to the attacks. This cell allegedly flew a hijacked plane into the Pentagon. The CIA admitted in 2005 it knew about the men, and despite warnings of “spectacular attacks” and George Tenet claiming his “hair was on fire” absolutely nothing was done to arrest the cell members. This is hidden in plain sight. They simply rebranded the incident as “information sharing” rather than “hiding hijackers from the FBI.”

Richard Clarke accused George Tenet of what is essentially Treason, but this wasn’t covered at all by US corporate media.

As you can imagine, once the Project for a New American Century designs for a “new Pearl Harbor” were approved to move forward all bets were off as to what specfically happened that day. PNAC members included Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld (who did absolutely nothing to defend the country during the actual attack) and the president’s brother Jeb.

We know one thing for certain: that the malfeasance was intentional and helped the Saudis succeed in many ways. If you are true to your statement to investigate the most important events then you must have a team devoted to investigating 9/11 high Treason.
