Senate Candidate Kirkpatrick Should Also Advocate For The Human Rights Of The Apache Nation By Stopping The Mine At Oak Flat!

images-8.jpegimages.pngTomorrow… In Phoenix, Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego will be appearing with congress person Kirkpatrick to ask for the restoration of section 4 of the Voting Rights Act but….. There will be no mention of the restoral of human rights to our brothers and the sisters of the Great Apache Nation with the suspension of the proposed desecrating and poisoning mine at Oak Flat:
I support the restoring section 4 of the Voting Rights Act because voting is a human right but what I don’t support is Ann Kirkpatrick’s hypocrisy of using it cynically for her campaign while completely ignoring the human rights of our brothers and sisters of the Great Apache Nation to not have their sacred land poisoned and desecrated with the proposed foreign corporate mine constructed at Oak Flat, Arizona.
Unknown-1.jpegimages-7.jpeg
 
June 28, 2016. Now, the Arizona Democratic Party is very interested reinstating section 4 of the voting rights act… Yet the two people who are promoting it tomorrow and…Please Don’t get me wrong I believe what they are doing is right… These two people also have ulterior reasons for making a big publicity stunt to reinstate section 4 of the voting rights act.
What the congressman Ruben Gallego and Congress person and U.S. Senate candidate Kirkpatrick are doing is to to promote (her) Ann Kirkpatrick’s election to the U.S. Senate… This is the same Kirkpatrick who says that she believes in the human right of being able to vote yet does not believe conversely in the human right of our Apache brothers and sisters to not have their sacred land desecrated and poisoned by the approved foreign mining company which is about to construct a mine on their sacred land at Oak Flat, Arizona and … Of which she (Kirkpatrick) not only approves but is strongly supporting coming to fruition by her kissing up to the foreign mining company Rio Tinto not to mention padding her campaign bank account.
 
Ruben Gallego the Congressman… Has been appearing along with his partner Phoenix city Council person Kate Gallego many times in the Phoenix area over the last five or six months to help get congress person Kirkpatrick elected into the U.S. Senate from Arizona… I wouldn’t have a problem with congressman Gallego helping congress person Kirkpatrick just because she is a Democrat to get elected into the U.S. Senate … But congress person Gallego is just using this as a publicity stunt to help Kirkpatrick and Hillary get elected on behalf of their respective campaigns. So the Arizona Democratic party leadership talked a big talk but… When push came to shove during the Arizona presidential preference election they did not call for a re-vote…Because just by coincidence that would have made a fair election for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
But getting back to the horrible mine at Oak Flat that is about to be built on the sacred land of our brother and sister Apaches… She, Ann Krikpatrick disregards the pleas and the non-violent protests of our Apache brothers and sisters who have repeatedly asked her to not allow this mine at Oak Flat and to stop helping John McCain with this foreign mining company construct this mine shortly after her election and that of Hillary Clinton (If she is coronated as president).
And another much larger reason that makes this wrong on the part of Congressman Gallego and his partner Kate Gallego of the Phoenix city Council to appear with Ann Kirkpatrick for the U.S. Senate is the fact that Kirkpatrick is working in league with the right wing extremist John McCain and Paul Gosar… Who are about to commit an impending environmental and cultural crime against our Apache brothers and sisters and therefore a crime against humanity with the construction of the mine at Oak Flat… That is they (McCain, Kirkpatrick and Gosar) are about to commit a cultural and environmental crime against the Apache nation at Oak flat Arizona with the construction of this very poisonous and desecrating mine despite the fact that it is on the Apaches sacred land.
Further… I believe that Congressman Gallego is being rather hypocritical in helping promote Kirkpatrick’s U.S. Senate campaign (who strongly supports the mine) when he says He is helping at the same time congressman Raul Grijalva from southern Arizona with his House Bill 2811 to stop the mine at Oak Flat (and by the way sadly…That bill is going nowhere).
So again, this is what this whole appearance is about tomorrow… It’s meant to accomplish at least 4 things… 1.) A publicity stunt to cynically help Hillary Clinton and…2.) A publicity stunt to help Kirkpatrick now that they feel Bernie Sanders is out of the picture and 3)…. Turn the anger at the Democratic establishment for helping rig the election for Hillary by suddenly saying: “Hey, we feel your pain young Millennial voters we were angry about your votes being stolen for Bernie so now we want to help you have your votes count for Hillary and her strong supporter and endorser Ann Kirkpatrick.”
And 4.) Ann Kirkpatrick is known much more in the rural areas of Arizona then in the most populous county of Arizona which is Maricopa county so now… She needs great help by the Democratic establishment to get votes in Maricopa county….Hence Congressman Ruben Gallego and his partner Phoenix city council person Kate Gallego who have been appearing at Fundraisers for Kirkpatrick and taking Kirkpatrick all around Maricopa county promoting her and telling people what a swell person she is….
The lady who voted against G.M.O. labeling and the lady who said she would vote with the Republicans to over ride the president’s veto on the large spending bill known as the N.D.A.A. because it temporarily put a stop on her corporate foreign mining company buddies approval for the desecrating and poisonous mine at Oak Flat.
Unknown-3.jpegUnknown-4.jpeg
 
So they Congressman Gallego and Kirkpatrick can say all they want that they believe in the human right of voting while at the same time ignoring the human rights of approximately 50,000 members of our brothers and sisters of the great Apache nation including their tribal chairman and most of their tribal government with the construction of the horrible foreign multi-national corporate mine at Oak Flat. It is just plain hypocritical for Congressman Gallego to state that he is against the mine at Oak flat while helping in the fund-raising and the campaigning in Maricopa County for Congress woman Ann Kirkpatrick and to conveniently not bring up the fact that Kirkpatrick is about to commit this crime against our Apache brothers and sisters and there against humanity as well.
And another thing… Many of our younger brothers and sisters in the Latino community… Strongly sympathize with their brothers and sisters and our brothers and sisters of the Apache nation at Oak flat… But there are older leaders in the community and in the Arizona Democratic Party who have stated that they believe the claim by the Apaches at Oak flat that their land is sacred is essentially not true and for all intents and purposes to be garbage…
 
So, those are my reasons brothers and sisters for why Arizona Congress persons Gallego and Kirkpatrick are having their publicity stunt tomorrow. Yes…I am totally in support for human rights being restored for those whose votes are stolen with the re-implementation of section 4 of the Voting Rights Act but we should hold our elected officials and politicians accountable not just for the human right of voting but for the human right of having one’s culture and sacred land preserved for future generations as well as having clean, air, water and land.
 
Our Arizona Democratic party leadership is doing this feel good event tomorrow while ignoring a whole people desperately trying to preserve what’s left of their culture, language, and sacred lands. They continue to behave as if this is the Arizona Democratic party of 1916 not 2016 because when push comes to shove… the $$$$$$ from the Rio Tinto mining corporation comes first and the our Apache brothers and sisters still come last.

The So Called People’s Summit Excluded Green Party Pres Candidate Jill Stein…What A Sham !

The so called “People’s Summit”? LOL !
The so called sly Democratic party and its sly so called “People’s Summit” was and is a joke !
 
They excluded Jill Stein from the Green Party. So remember … You are not human, if you are from the left and from another progressive political party because as everyone knows: The “People’s Summit” considers any other political party candidates from the left as non-entities. What? You say you are Jill Stein? From the Green Party?…Can’t hear you, yelling louder can’t hear you, LOL !
 
 Now the Democratic eSTABlishment waxes about the greatness of its chosen “goats” to lead the sheep who believe that the People’s Summit was nothing but a PUT ON that excluded other political parties.

leftist peasant who gladly missed the great People’s Summit LOL !

Our 4th Amendment Rights Deficated On To Protect Insane People’s Militia 2nd Amendment!

images-5.jpegcohen8e-1-web.jpg

Congress’ answer to the mass shootings is to LET THE FBI SPY ON US WITHOUT A WARRANT!
… While the gun nuts get to keep their military style assault weapons at all costs!

2nd amendment that was written for militias… is being propped up for gun nuts while the rest of us have our fourth amendment rights metaphorically deficated on !

Great…John McCain and The politicians in Washington D.C. won’t pass any kind of sane gun regulation but in order to look like they are doing something … SO..They protect the effing militia 2nd amendment at all costs so that cheap military style assault weapons can continue to be sold to every crazy person that wants one while… sacrificing our fourth amendment “right to privacy”!

FK the constitutional rights of the rest of us! The Gun Nuts and their Jack booted NRA lobbyists are a protected class. This is so fked up!

 

Trump and Hillary both Evil…There Is “No Lesser” Of The Two

images.jpegUnknown.jpeg

I am troubled by what seems to be a growing group of folks who seem to excuse the monster Trump… We should not be giving him anymore of a pass than Shillary. I do not stand with people that support Trump… And… I know that you don’t dear reader but you probably know people who support Bernie that do… But… I again am troubled by those who seem to excuse this monster as well. And, this is coming from a “Bernie or Bust” person: ME. Let us not be played by either evil camp at the expense of looking like Fascist sympathizers …  or Monarchist Hillary sympathizers.  Trump and Hillary are both monsters and there is no “lesser of two evils.”

Bernie Supporters withstand almost 118 degree heat to protest Trump in Phoenix

118degrees

It was a beautiful occasion to see fellow Bernie supporters protesting the xenophobe and promulgator of hate Donald Trump peacefully outside his hate rally even though it was almost 118 degrees outside. Apparently… Some Hillary supporting Democratic leaders had told her supporters to stay away from the rally but … Thankfully though… A few of them also showed up to stand with us that day unified. We then put politics aside and put human rights to the fore front for that unmercifully hot 5 or 6 hours. And… Of course, this is what our beloved Bernie would want…He is such a genuine and beautiful spirit that you just knew in your heart that he would agree that politics should be put aside on ad day like this on an almost record breaking day of heat in Phoenix, (the following day Phoenix crushed its old heat record and set a record of 118 degrees).  The heat wave was so dangerous that at least 4 people have lost their lives since the day after the protest on June 18th.

The press for the most part had not covered our  anti-Trump protest except for a quiet gathering that morning 5 or 6 hours before Trump spoke and at a different location from he was to speak. So, it was with weird irony that at first the only real coverage that our peaceful anti-Trump protest got at Trump’s hate rally was from “InfoWars” of all things. And… What was even weirder was that the interview they gave was with this writer….I thought for sure that they would really twist my words but again…Irony of ironies…Alex Jones right wing fringe InfoWars carried my words as I spoken them to the young reporter who conducted the audio-visual interview.

Protester: Trump Is A Snake

Before our protest… The largest media source in Phoenix…Stunningly played what amounted to be a pro-Trump commercial for the Nuremberg styled Phoenix rally by putting out that a benevolent biker group (which was clearly recognized as a hate group) would be protecting the innocent Trump rally attendants by patrolling with guns on their bikes the area around the hate rally.

 

So…When it appeared that Alex Jones (lol) InfoWars site would be the only real coverage we got …There appeared in yesterday’s USA TODAY newspaper page 7a, the picture of me holding a sign saying it was 118 degrees and it felt great to protest the hate of Trump! The title of the article is: “Trump Could Challenge U.S. Stability”.

So brothers and sisters …I’m glad we didn’t listen to those telling us to stay home from protesting the Fascism, hate and xenophobia of this deranged sick man named Donald Trump … The world saw the presence of peace loving people representing Arizona and not just bigoted Trump’s worshippers gravitating towards a hateful Fascism.

So was it worth it standing peacefully in near 118* degree heat brothers and sisters to protest protesting the hate and Fascism that Trump spreads in Arizona and the nation? IT SURE WAS! THANK YOU WE SHOWED THE WORLD LOVE AND HUMANITY DONT TAKE A BACK SEAT TO TRUMP’S Fascism 🙂

In addition to protesting peacefully against this hate rally… I felt horrified but (not surprised) to observe that Trump’s adoring worshippers were metaphorically even spitting on McCain’s p.o.w. experience that he went through in service to our nation and that they were calling him a traitor and that … All Muslims should die … They responded this way when they were asked how they felt about how Trump had insulted McCain and whether they believed whether Muslims were all terrorists.

Now… As you all know here in Phoenix,  I have had officially filed recalls against the Az. senator and that I have opposed John McCain on everything he stands for politically but I will not ever attack the service he gave to our nation … Hearing these so called Republican men and women say these things told me that surely they would not cry if we were to lose the republic that we now have and I realized that if we don’t oppose these poor ignorant fools succumbing to Neo-American Fascism then the republic is on its way out.
So… Let me clearly state this (and I know it will disappoint some but oh well): I do not support anyone, anybody or any organization that advocates for the destruction of our Republic. And that I will in defense against those who should take up arms against it in return do so myself.
Now, that being said … The two party American duopoly is a modern day dinosaur full of entrenched elected and appointed elites. For the most part they are now so corrupted that this has caused many of the people to have lost faith in their governance due to their criminal enrichment of themselves.
I really don’t believe that the people have lost their faith in our Democratic system of government but just in the crooks that now run it.
Unfortunately, if we don’t clean these crooks out of government soon it will allow truly vile and evil fanatics to have their way with the destruction of our government and this will not result in utopia but to the contrary…It will result in a true hell for those who live in the country. I have been to another country called Iraq while serving in the U.S. Army and I have seen first hand what happens when a whole country falls into chaos …It truly is hell on earth.
So let me reiterate one more time that I will oppose those who wish to destroy our republic with every ounce of energy and force that I can muster.
Our enemy is not our system of government it is the elected and appointed officials within it who have become so entrenched and corrupted that their very rule now threatens us with the spectre of a Neo American Fascist thug named Trump.

The Republic’s Slide Toward the Abyss

Sharing from Len Ckark’s note:

The Republic’s slide toward the abyss:

I was at a anti-Trump protest on Saturday June 18th, 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona and horrified that the Trump Fascists at his “Nuremberg” style rally in Phoenix on Saturday were even spitting on McCain’s p.o.w. experience that he went through in service to his nation and that they were calling him a traitor and that … All Muslims should die …
Now… As you all know I oppose John McCain on everything he stands for politically but I will not ever attack the service he gave to our nation … Hearing these so called Republican men and women say these things told me that surely they would not cry if we were to lose the republic that we now have and I realized that if we don’t oppose these poor ignorant fools succumbing to Neo-American Fascism then the republic is on its way out.

Phx Trump Event: Alex Jones actually covered us but local media? No they made our peace activists look evil ex. for Phx New Times

Unknown-9.jpegUnknown-8.jpeg
ONE CORRECTION: Thank you to Phoenix New Times for just putting out this story on our non violent protest. Thank you Phx. New Times … You and Alex Jones covered our protest lol !
It’s really sad when Alex Jones reports our rallies more accurately… Or let me re-phrase that … When Alex Jones even acknowledges that there are even people against Trump in Arizona strongly opposing him
Unknown-10.jpeg
In addition… It’s awful funny what happens when you don’t back queen Hillary
Alex Jones covered our non violent protest against Trump and surprisingly didn’t smear us in that one event… Unlike our local media… Thanks for nothing 🙂
So Saturday June 18th, 2016 really did turn out to be a day that truly made the Colosseum: “THE MAD HOUSE ON MCDOWELL !
LOL I made Info Wars and… Alex Jones pretty much didn’t change my statement at all lol ! Who woulda’ thunk it? Info Wars? The commenters are now pissed at Alex Jones because he let me trash Der Trumpf and the Shillary supporters are pissed because I stated I WONT EVER VOTE FOR SHILLARY lol !
In addition… I guess you will all be stunned when I say our local media pretty much ignored us lol. I am just so shocked but…. Let’s look at some specific so called journal outlets like…
KJZZ….
How funny… KJZZ wouldn’t even interview our peace loving brothers and sisters at our non- violent protest that occurred at the actual site against Der Fascist Trump and …
Channel 12 let Brahm Resnik get away with glorifying a hate group the day before in his news segment while insinuating that all of us terrible peaceful anti-Trump protesters were going to burn down the collesseum (lol). for that matter none of the local media would even tough us …
Oh… But almost forgot… The KJZZ reporter did find time to interview a right wing hater trying to intimidate us… Great job KJZZ ! It’s looks like all that Koch brothers dinero (money lol) is really paying off for our Public media, wink, wink, nod, nod. And…Let’s just top it off with how the Arizona Republic actually gave in their supposed unbiased coverage of Der Trumpf’s event a link within their article stating that their readers could go there to get free tickets thee Der Trumpf event. I am just shocked I tell you !
Oh… And I guess our local media left out that El Ducey the Az. governor was there paying homage to Der Trumpf as well or… was Ducey there or not… I don’t know because … I guess the local media did a favor for him and kept his name out of the event. Thank you loco media lol !
So again, this turned out to be good day to protest Fascism and Der Trumpf who represents it and …the Republican Party!
Actually though… I am not joking when I say that I am shocked that Alex Jones didn’t twist my words lol ! We’re looking the “the Looking Glass” when Alex Jones gives more accurate reporting for an event in Phoenix then the local media LOL !
And my anarchist brothers and sisters …. gotta love ’em !
They put up the old Soviet Flag behind me LOL ! Hey, Im not a communist but I am a Socialist but guess what? They (my Anarchist brothers and sisters) are always there at these protests standing up non-violently for human rights … Unlike the snobbish corporate/corrupt Democratic politicians who are to good to come stand with us with the exception of Az. State Rep. Cardenas who marched with at the last Trump event! He put his words into action, thank you for doing that representative Cardenas 🙂
(and yes…I know a couple politicians appeared at a park like 4 or 5 hours before the Trump rally). That’s cool but we really needed them where Trump was really speaking to show that Phoenix and Arizona aren’t ruled by Bigots and Fascists … Oh well… Corporate Democrats were A.W.O.L. again except for Rep Cardenas who showed up and marched with us at the Fountain Hills Trump protest.
