This is a post from the here and now for Senator Bernie Sanders. The last rendition was from six years ago when we believed that the new president would really push for a single pay health care system. It was a good plan then and is a good plan now...Insurance companies be damned...G%

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a repost from August 2009, but more pertinent to the present day situation. I guess the main reason I reposted it is for the video of Obama's family doctor, who has come back, to haunt him, from the past...Bwahahahahahahahah*

Dennis Kucinich on Health Care



July 26, 2007: Dennis Kucinich speaks truth to power during his Wake Up America campaign. Needless to mention the corporate media and "the powers that be" decimated him to being a voice in the wilderness.

There is still time for this country to demand real change. Healthcare is the single most important issue, and our so called representatives in government are condoning what I call "Corporate Healthcare" and "Welfare for the Elite".

As we speak, I am listening to a quote by our president, on Air America, recommending that we all fill out a living will. I have done one my self he says, which makes me wonder...What's the point? Healthcare is what we need and we need it for everybody, not just for the folks that can afford it.

So...zzzzZZZZ* I looked on Obamas website, whitehouse.gov, for some information and transparency on the healthcare issue for the sheeple...) :

THE WHITE HOUSE

Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release July 29, 2009

Statement from the President on Health Insurance Reform Efforts in Congress

"I want to thank the members of both the Senate and House of Representatives for continuing their work on health reform to provide more stability and security for Americans who have insurance, and quality, affordable coverage for those who don’t. I’m especially grateful that so many members, including some Blue Dogs on the Energy and Commerce Committee, are working so hard to find common ground. Those efforts are extraordinarily constructive in strengthening this legislation and bringing down its cost."

DR. DAVID SCHEINER: The question of who—the question of who was responsible, of course, is hard to know, whether it was ABC or whether it was somebody at the White House.

AMY GOODMAN: What would you have asked?

DR. DAVID SCHEINER: I would have asked about single payer, insofar as we already have one that works, and why we just couldnt have universal Medicare and eliminate the insurance companies, which are causing incredible costs and havoc on the system.

It only hurts when you cough...G:

Senator Bernie Sanders ~ A Presedential Candidate For The People

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now this is what I'm talking about. People who have been around the block that are getting it right. Politicians and musicians. What a great combination and how cool is it to be free of hearing the cacophony of the corporate mouth pieces with their irritating repetition of political cliches like moving forward, on the table, at the end of the day, reaching across the aisle, & obamacare. but I digress, ...woops another one...G%

The Donald loses his campaign soundtrack to a hippie from Vermont

  Consequence Of Sound

by Ben Kaye on June 22, 2015, 8:58am

Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump’s presidential campaign kicked off like the joke that it is. The billionaire reality TV mogul came out in front of a crowd of partially paid supporters to Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World” (and while riding down on an escalator, no less). Beyond the fact that the song is actually a critique of Republican George H. W. Bush’s presidency and the social policies that lead to income inequality, Trump’s use of the song was inappropriate because Young never gave him permission. Young said in a statement that Trump “was not authorized to use ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ in his presidential candidacy announcement.” The statement added that, “Neil Young, a Canadian citizen, is a supporter of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States of America.” Trump’s camp claimed they paid both ASCAP and BMI for rights to the song, but would cease from using it out of respect to Young. The singer, meanwhile, out of respect to his own political beliefs, has turned around and given Trump’s opponent Sanders permission to use “Rockin’ in the Free World”. Sanders, the Democratic candidate from Vermont, walked out to the track at a rally in Denver attended by an overflow audience of 4,500 people. Folks were reportedly standing in the atrium and lacrosse fields outside the auditorium to hear Sanders speak; as far as we know, none of them were paid to be there.

*UPDATE* May 17, 2015 Hardin Montana jail: How Private Prison Developers Prey on Desperate Towns

*UPDATE* May 17, 2015

I have returned to this article to find that both videos are not available

Do you remember when all of this was going on? It was over 5 years ago and nobody seems to be concerned about it. However, privatized industry is happening on an accelerated scale, and it concerns me that so much information is no longer on Youtube.



    <~~   The video that was here  

       is missing and has no information 

                as to why it is blocked

With the unraveling of the deal for the shadowy American Private Police Force to take over and populate an empty jail in Hardin, Montana, it's pretty clear that the small city got played by an ex-con and his (supposed) private security firm.

But an investigation by TPMmuckraker into how Hardin ended up with the 92,000 square foot facility in the first place suggests that, long before "low-level card shark" Michael Hilton ever came to town, Hardin officials had already been taken for a ride by a far more powerful set of players: a well-organized consortium of private companies headquartered around the country, which specializes in pitching speculative and risky prison projects to local governments desperate for jobs.

The projects have generated multi-million dollar profits for the companies involved, but often haven't created the anticipated payoff for the communities, and have left a string of failed or failing prisons in their wake.

"They look for an impoverished town that's desperate," says Frank Smith of the Private Corrections Institute, a Florida-based group that opposes prison privatization. "They come in looking very impressive, saying, 'We'll make money rain from the skies.' In fact, they don't care whether it works or not."

Forty-Seven Republican Traitors Drive US Towards Catastrophic Middle East War

 



Forty-Seven Republican Traitors Drive US Towards Catastrophic Middle East War 

 
 Voltairenet 

 by Webster G. Tarpley 

 
Since the Republican Party of National Sabotage took over the House of Representatives, the US government has been subjected to the full range of domestic anarchy, with crises of default, government shutdown, the Satan sandwich, the sequester, and the threatened shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security. The GOP’s stock in trade has been revealed as chaos and ungovernability, in line with their Austrian slogan of “Government doesn’t work — elect us and we’ll prove it!” The same methods have been employed by the Supreme Court RATS cabal under the ideological leadership of Scalia. Now, with the Senate under GOP control, these reactionary anarchists are pursuing international anarchy. They seek a paralysis of US diplomacy which, whatever its content, is the only alternative to a general war over Ukraine, Syria, Iran, or some other issue. The GOP is intent on provocations: first they invited the desperate adventurer Netanyahu (who threatened to attack Iran if the US declined to do so), and now they have followed that with their #47Traitors letter to the Iranian government, which promises to sabotage any peace deal.

If all peace deals are blocked by the GOP saboteurs, the chances of war are greatly increased. If all US executive agreements not passed by the senate are called into question (think of FDR’s emergency destroyers for bases deal with the UK is September 1940), then US foreign relations will be reduced to a chaos sure to be more dangerous than the current status quo. If there are forces in Iran opposed to a modus vivendi, these forces will surely be strengthened, again making war more likely. If the talks fail, the US will be blamed, but Americans should pass that blame on to the GOP scoundrels. Already we may be seeing the French warmonger foreign minister Fabius encouraged by the GOP in his own wrecking operation.

Despite the impression which Netanyahu and the Republicans are eager to convey, the current talks involve Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (Russia, China, Britain, France, US) plus Germany. These other powers should now retaliate against the GOP letter by exiting the US-imposed regime of economic sanctions, which they were very foolish to agree to in the first place.

Will U.S. let ‘bad things’ happen to Israel over Netanyahu’s 

 rejection of Palestinian state?


  By Joel Greenberg  March 20, 2015

McClatchy Foreign Staff

JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has yet to form a new government after his election victory this week, but already he faces what could be a substantial shift in relations with the United States. For the third straight day, the Obama administration signaled Friday that it remains furious at Netanyahu’s pre-election statement ruling out a Palestinian state while he is prime minister and that it will recalibrate its diplomatic approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Interviews that Netanyahu has given in recent days to try to walk back the no-Palestinian-state statement have not eased President Barack Obama’s anger, and a phone call between the two men on Thursday didn’t clarify Netanyahu’s position, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters in Washington. “That was not the result of the call,” Earnest said. Netanyahu’s office did not announce that the call had taken place, a departure from custom. Earnest said Obama had used the same sort of language that Earnest himself has used in recent days to express his dismay at Netanyahu’s pre-election actions. Earnest’s comments left no reason to doubt a wire service report quoting an unnamed official that Obama had told Netanyahu “we will need to reassess our options following the prime minister’s new positions and comments regarding the two-state solution.” “When Prime Minister Netanyahu indicated a weakness in his commitment, and I think that’s putting it charitably, he was indicating a difference of opinion not just with President Obama, but with the policy that was pursued by President Bush, and the policy that is strongly supported by Democrats and Republicans in the United States Congress,” Earnest said. “If that policy foundation has been the driver of policy decisions that are made at the United Nations, it’s important for us to reconsider those kinds of decisions, now that our strongest ally in the Middle East has withdrawn from its commitment to that policy goal.” Read more at MClatchy News
