My last blog post was wrong. As of a week ago, it does matter who is elected president. That’s because one of the candidates has openly called for a new investigation into the crimes of 9/11.
In a recent statement on the subject, Jill Stein made the following important comments and promises:
- “The families and friends of those who were murdered on 9/11 deserve justice. They also deserve to know the truth.”
- “Under our administration a new inquiry would have access to the considerable body of responsible independent research that has emerged over the last 15 years.”
- “We would create an independent 9/11 Commission, not one dominated by members with an interest in protecting the reputation and careers of foreign affairs and intelligence communities.”
- “It’s time for a full accounting of what happened, and an end to the misguided post-9/11 wars that are actually making us less safe, not more safe.”
In May, a national poll showed that, “An unprecedented 91 percent of voters 28 or younger favor having an independent on the ballot, and 65 percent of respondents are willing to support a candidate who isn’t Clinton or Trump.”
Jill Stein is on the ballot in 44 states. It’s not clear what chance she has given the serious, inherent problems with the U.S. voting process and electronic voting machines. But she is the only candidate discussing what matters to the American people as opposed to what matters to the ruling oligarchy.
As Gore Vidal once said, “There is only one party in the United States, the Property Party … and it has two right wings: Republican and Democrat.” Moving away from that sad and dangerous state of affairs will not be easy but supporting courageous voices in the national discussion helps. To that end, people who want real change need to send the oligarchs a strong message on November 6 by supporting Jill Stein and the Green Party.
Jill Stein is censored in the presidential debates to silence the huge advantage in proposals and solutions that representatives of the duopoly are unable to present Citizenship
As Mort Saul said: “How many lies can you believe before you become part of the lie?”
The pile of lies in the U.S. has become so big I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to stomach the truth. But I feel a vague pulse of hope when I read about Jill Stein.
I have to ask, why hasn’t the Green Party gained any notable popularity in the United States in their 15 years of existence (25 years if you are talking about the smaller, lesser known group split off from 15 years ago)? Stein is projected to win, maybe, 4% of the vote this November. Why such a small percentage? The common idea is that the two parties prevent recognition of Green Party candidates, effectively “crowding out” or sidelining the party from gaining a foothold in US electoral politics. Knowing several Green Party members in Maine, some of whom have been elected to local offices like the Portland City Council, or who have canvassed Maine communities for issues like raising the minimum wage, I can say with confidence the progressive agenda that the Green Party espouses contains worthy social benefits. But as a party which seems more intent on seeking national recognition through appearing every four years offering a weak presidential candidate with little more than marginally populous promises to try to bump their perennially poor showing in the polls, if this their idea of a blueprint for “change,” their organizational skills are woefully inadequate if not completely inept. Compare the heat and light generated among the constituents the Green Party perennially seeks to attract by Bernie Sanders. His entirely surprising success at nearly winning the Democratic nomination, garnering the devoted support of upwards of 13 million primary and caucus voters across the country suggests a latent force that needed the right candidate to tap into. Bernie Sander’s message motivated millions of people with a progressive agenda that covered a variety of social ills and failures that progressives have advocated for for years. For some reason the Green Party hasn’t been able to tap into the latent power of that constituency in any way close to Sanders’.
I have been advocating for 9/11 truth for the last ten years. I have absolutely no reservations declaring the official explanation is deeply flawed, unscientific, biased, a cover-up of monumental proportions that has been used to justify unspeakable actions by the US governments of Bush and Obama. My training is in Chemistry and I approach my criticism of the official explanation from a scientific perspective. I cannot agree, however, that Jill Stein taking votes away in this election from the only likely candidate who will prevent the Republican Party from gaining power and continuing with their destructive ideological agenda will in any way benefit this country. Not only is Jill Stein NOT going to win or implement any of the promises for a new independent investigation or changes in the entrenched military trajectory we are on, her role in this election will very possibly make any change more difficult and distant if the Republicans win control of the presidency, maintain control of the House and Senate. A conservative SCOTUS, a certainty if the GOP wins, will bury progressive initiatives for a generation. The difficulty of enlightening the American public to the failures in all of the 9/11 investigations to date will be buried even more deeply under the fog of ignorance, rejection of science, xenophobia and economic stultification that will follow a Republican win in November. For Jill Stein to risk this catastrophe is unfathomable for the sake of gaining a few percentage points of voter support.
We are certainly in a hole when it comes to how entrenched the Democratic Party is regarding its lack of many progressive causes. There is, possibly, a glimmer of recognition among a few Democratic politicians that 9/11 truth is a credible critique of Bush administration policies and actions. But the hole we will find ourselves in if the Republicans win will more resemble a grave out of which there may be no climbing for a very, very long time. That Stein fails to recognize this danger seems to me the epitome of blindness, a blindness and inept political philosophy that has prevented the good things the Greens have to offer from gaining traction and recognition among patriotic Americans sick and tired of the lies. In this year’s election it just might be that the devil we know is better than anyone else if we ever hope to make progress on 9/11 truth, or any other progressive initiative worthy of consideration.
That is so awesome, thanks for posting this Kevin. Jill has my vote, she had it even before coming out on 9/11 Truth. Let’s do all we can to get her some media coverage. I have an article coming on this and related strategies to help us break through the ultra controlled media. Stay tuned, I will post it here as well as other trusted sites.
We need to do what the party heads do and start a chorus, not a lone voice crying in the Wilderness, RIP Michael Rupert. We need to challenge the pundits who utter nothing but ad hominin attacks on 9/11 truth while doing everything possible to avoid an actual confrontation with an informed 9/11 truth teller.
Ryan, I remember years ago when you debated some clown from Popular Mechanics and destroyed him on Thom Hartmann’s radio show, perhaps it was still Air America, anyway, Thom Hartmann is now anti-9/11 truth, he even used that dipshit redneck blacksmith’s demonstration of heating an iron rod red hot with a torch and bending it, to prove the “official story.” Hartmann is most likely CIA, as I’ve listened to him over the years, he’s for the draft, he likes Kissinger, he proclaims himself America’s no 1 progressive talk show host, yet he threw Kucinch under the bus in 2008, and promoted Hillary at the same time he pretended to support Bernie.
We have to embarrass the pundits at the TV programs by challenging them to engage in a discussion of the physics, I’m not worried about the usual redneck hacks, but we need to challenge Maddow, Hartmann and Tiabbi and force them to step away from their monologue ad hominin attacks and actually engage in a discussion of the physics and the mountains of evidence proving beyond any doubt the official story as totally bogus.
Dear Mr. Ryan,
You had it right the first time. It doesn’t matter who gets elected. Even if there was a massive upheaval in the political spectrum and we by some miracle elected a third party candidate it still won’t change a thing. The status quo government will not allow such a thing to ever happen. If it were ever to be proven that 9/11 was a conspiracy by individuals in our own government… Perhaps even high ranking elected officials… Do you really believe they would let such a thing come to light? They would send the CIA the NSA the DOE the DOD and any number of agencies that run clandestine operations on US Soil without charter. Yes black bag ops! And the bag is the last thing you would see. I’m sorry to say but it really makes no difference who gets elected.
Our government is hopelessly entwined with big money. Politicians are now viewed as assets by big money wielders. Lawmakers are neatly packaged, bought and paid for. In point of fact.
Jimmy Carter promised he would call for a full investigation and disclosure of UFO’s if he were elected. He actually did just that, then the CIA paid him a little visit and he withdrew his investigation and never spoke of UFO’s again. Look it up for yourself if you don’t believe me.
No Sir, No. There’s no way Jill Stein would ever get an independent investigation off the ground. Besides all the evidence was piled in to barges and shipped to Boasteel in Beijing and melted in to oblivion. Yes Cheney and Co. did there jobs well.
Sad and tragic, but true and well expressed.
Why Green Party Candidate Jill Stein is a Better Third Party Option Than Gary Johnson and Why I’m Voting for Trump: http://trumpisright.blogspot.com/2016/08/why-green-party-candidate-jill-stein-is.html
“Why Green Party Candidate Jill Stein is a Better Third Party Option Than Gary Johnson and Why I’m Voting for Trump“.
Why you’re voting for Trump? Are you joking? If you need to ask yourself why you’re voting for him, then you should first wonder why you’d even consider voting for him. After all, it’s all bs.
Thanks Ryan, very true. Americans have a great alternative: Jill Stein for president !!!
Am I the only one who feels that the Trump antics are staged, i.e. the man doesn’t want to be elected. The powers that be are making sure that Hillary will be voted in, despite not being popular.
In other words, voters are scared into voting for Hillary, or else Trump would get in.
Remember, a vote for Hillary is a vote for the military industrial complex that brought us the 9/11 false flag.
Reading your post a number of times to try to give it further thought, I come to a understanding. You’re against both Clinton Trump. That’s good, although reasons can vary and what they are bears weight in their evaluation. Both are to be banned from politics or govt; no doubt. But, I don’t know of more than very few politicians who’ve been honourable. What makes you think Jill Stein will truly be good, if elected?
This is the first time I’ve heard or read of Jill Stein.
Losing the Supreme Court to the conservatives will doom this country for at the least a generation as the life terms of the conservative justices seated by conservatives play out, and by the precedents their regressive decisions will set and will prevail for a hundred years or more. The legal fiction of corporate personhood originated in a decision that came down around 1889. It is part of the legal fiction that supported the Citizens United decision throwing out 100 years of legal precedent around corporate giving in elections. THAT is what is at stake in this election. The conservatives know it, and even evangelicals are supporting a deeply flawed fraud of a candidate in Trump because of it.
Quote: “ As Gore Vidal once said, “There is only one party in the United States, the Property Party … and it has two right wings: Republican and Democrat.” “
Interesting, true, and, in a way, also funny. It’s funny, but how is questionable, for, after all, it isn’t welcome. It turns your stomach.
In Trumps own words “what have you got to lose?”. Vote for JILL !!!
On a related note (and a related note) Lee Hamilton actually said this in a recent opinion article:
“Let’s start with the belief expressed by a lot of people, including some candidates, that the system is “rigged.” This is a perilous way to treat the country’s political system; it sows distrust in future election results, delegitimizes winners and undermines the government’s credibility. If the charge takes hold, it will put political stability at risk.” Full article here:
If for no other reason than to be able to cast a vote of conscience, I voted for Jill Stein during early voting in Texas. Does she have a chance? Probably not, but I am grateful to her for giving me a choice that will not make me live with a sense of regret for the next 4 years.
