CBS News™: "Obamathon II can pardon H Rap Brown" (2016)

'After determining that [REDACTED] had been planned and that it was an operation being directed by the "Deep State" in the last days of the Clinton administration, i.e. run through the White House thugs & military intelligence like the MLK-op, H Rap's home was purposely left unoccupied by the entourage and the deputy Marshalls chased the suspect's vehicle to a pre-planned ambush location. The Federal Marshalls and a secondary assault team were pre-positioned with sniper rifles from the Pentagon and waiting behind a grassy knoll when H Rap returned in a black Mercedes. The "Black" Swat™, err... mercs ambushed the car in a violent, orchestrated, pre-planned, funded, & budgeted political assassination attempt, as H Rap was considered a potential vocal opponent against the upcoming war on terror and the Pentagon's war plans for Iraq, Cuba, & Afghanistan from an authentic position of faith like MLK or other Black Panthers, i.e. just like a "Hajji" or a terrorist suspect (i.e. a Muslim communist) the U.S. case law was being designed or "massaged" to attack and manipulate for Federal budgetary purposes (MIC/PIC).'

Davos Report: Bernie Sanders on "The Crystal World" of Burma

'Daw Aung San Suu Kyi did not appear at the ceremonial State breakfast party. When U.S. presidential candidate Bernie Sanders arrived at the Suu Kyi bungalow in Rangoon and was shown into the dining-room by the houseboy, the ghost of Karl Marx greeted him with a raised forefinger. "Aunty Suu is sleeping," he told Sanders. "She had quite a night, poor dear--a lot of natives are hanging around in the bush, hoping to reap themselves a harvest of diamonds, I suppose. They've brought their sick with them, incurables for the most part. What about you, Bernie? How do you feel this morning?" "Well enough," Sanders said. "Thanks for the suit, by the way." "Your own is dry now," Marx said. "One of the boys pressed it earlier this morning. If you want to change--?" "That's all right. This one is warmer, anyway." Sanders felt the blue serge fabric. The darker blue material in some way seemed more appropriate to his present meeting with Suu Kyi than his red cotton tropical suit, a fitting disguise for this nether world where, under house arrest, she had slept by day and appeared only to greet foreign visitors at night. Marx ate his breakfast with relish, working with both hands at his grapefruit. Since their meeting the previous night he had relaxed completely, almost as if Suu Kyi 's prayers gave him his first chance to lower his guard with Senator Sanders.'

Obamathon I -"Beyond Steve Canyon": Histories of Militarized Masculinity

"'Last time, I told you guys I wanted to spend time thinking about some issues,' he began. 'Now, we have a three-year track record that I feel good about. We’ve delivered on many of the promises I made when I ran for this office. We’ve faced incredible challenges, foreign and domestic, and drone a good job meeting them, by and large.' Obama didn’t need to stumble through this preamble to his constituency on a teleprompter, though. Everyone knew the litany of his achievements. Foremost on that day, with the fresh news about Daw Aung San Suu Kyi out of Burma, it seemed the President was still on the golf course pondering the drone program that he had expanded so dramatically and with such lethal results, as well as the death of bin Laden, which was still resonating worldwide years later.

'Turns out I’m really good at killing people,' Obama said quietly. 'Didn’t know that was gonna be a strong suit of mine.'

Around the room, everyone was transfixed by the pile of baseball cards of serial killers that Obama had placed on the table in front of him. Most of his advisers had expected him to bring a blacklist of 'terrorists'—but a baseball card collection? They were even more surprised by what the President was saying now: that as much as he had been faithful to his beliefs, there were places where his efforts had been insufficient. Where he’d trimmed his sails or been inhibited by the exigencies of the politics of the moment. Where he’d been less than honest about where he stood..."

"Killing Hope" - U.S. Military & CIA Interventions Since WWII

'Is the United States a force for democracy? In this classic and unique volume that answers this question, William Blum serves up a forensic overview of U.S. foreign policy spanning sixty years.... invasions… bombings… overthrowing governments… occupations… suppressing movements for social change… assassinating political leaders… perverting elections… manipulating labor unions… manufacturing “news”… death squads… torture… biological warfare… depleted uranium… drug trafficking… mercenaries… It’s not a pretty picture. It’s enough to give imperialism a bad name.'

H.R.1976 - Nuclear Weapons Abolition and Economic and Energy Conversion Act of 2015

'GOOD NEWS! Washington DC's Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton re-introduced her nuclear weapons abolition bill for the 12th time on Earth Day, April 22, 2015, as HR-1976. In her Dear Colleague letter, Ms. Norton writes, "Polls indicate that over 70% of Americans want 'the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.' We must begin to turn public sentiment into public policy, and make advances toward a peaceful, nuclear-weapons-free future." The bill has been submitted to the House Armed Services and Foreign Affairs Committees. In late May, Represenatives John Lewis (GA) and Raul Grijalva (AZ) told us that they would co-sponsor the bill. This is the ONLY bill in the U.S. Congress calling for global abolition of nuclear weapons. It also provides funding for conversion of the war industries to provide for environmental restoration and clean-energy conversion.'

Proposition One - HR 1334

Proposition One: H.R.1334 - Nuclear Weapons Abolition and Economic and Energy Conversion Act (2011) - "To provide for nuclear weapons abolition and economic conversion in accordance with District of Columbia Initiative Measure Number 37 of 1992, while ensuring environmental restoration and clean-energy conversion."

#Occupy Movement

'Endgame 2012' returns to the roots of Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the non-violent traditions of civil disobedience to illustrate how our collective world religious traditions provide the ethical and moral strength - wisdom - that allows us to overcome the evils of violence and war through collective action. Most importantly, 'Endgame 2012' provides a concrete plan for world peace that is practical, able to be implemented without the radical destruction of political and economic foundations, restoring integrity and honor to civil society.

Endgame 2012 - A Plan for World Peace

In 2010, I wrote the ebook 'Endgame 2012' advocating for the passage of the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to abolish war and nuclear weapons. Far from being a Utopian dream, the 28th Amendment is based on an existing legal precedent - Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution - which has been successful for over 64 years in effectively preventing the State in Japan from organizing and exporting political violence in war. The book features a debate on the 28th Amendment with the political theorist & philosopher Noam Chomsky of MIT.

Abolish War!

The 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: The Abolition of War & Nuclear Weapons. (1) Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the American people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes. (2) To accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized.
