More Injustice American Style (SOAPBOX PODCAST 3/2)

CINDY SHEEHAN'S SOAPBOX MARCH 2, 2014 GUEST: BILL QUIGLEY  TOPIC: CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AND THE CASE OF SR. MEGAN RICE, ET. AL. ( From Wikipedia ) On July 28, 2012, Rice, at 82 years old, and two fellow activists (Michael R. Walli, 63 years old, and Gregory I. Boertje-Obed, 57 years old) broke into the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee , spray-painted antiwar slogans, and splashed fake blood on the outside of the heavily guarded Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility.   The three are members of the organization "Transform Now Plowshares", a part of the Plowshares Movement , which references the Book of Isaiah 's call to "hammer their swords into plowshares", i.e., convert weapons into peaceful tools. Justifying their infiltration of the Oak Ridge facility, the trio cited both Biblical verses calling for world peace and the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons as justifications.

War is Costly (Peace Plan for California) by Cindy Sheehan

As someone who is intimately and very painfully acquainted with the personal cost of war, I believe that the carnage and destruction of war is what we need to focus on. We should never give up our struggles for peace and end of Empire as long as one person is being threatened or in harm's way of the US military juggernaut. However, according to the National Priorities Project , since 2001, the total cost of the US's war OF terror has been over 1.5 trillion dollars and, Every hour , taxpayers in United States are paying $11.26 million for Total Cost of Wars Since 2001 .  Of course, in a 2010 article in the Washington Post, economists Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes compute the "true" cost of just the horror the US perpetrated on Iraq at over "3 trillion."  Not only is the loss of my own treasure, my first born, needlessly relevant in my life, as a candidate for Governor of California, the hemorrhaging of this state's res

For immediate release: Cindy Sheehan for Cal Gov, 2014 Will Achieve Ballot Access for June Primary!

February 16, 2014 Vacaville, Ca.   For immediate release: Cindy Sheehan for California Governor, 2014, is thrilled to announce that despite the attack from the political establishment in California against alternative political parties and voices, the Sheehan campaign has a combination of enough signatures and donations to qualify for the June primary ballot. In 2010, Cindy Sheehan and the Peace and Freedom Party fought against the passage of Proposition 14 which was designed to destroy 3 rd parties and block political challenges from those with no party affiliation. Before the “Top Two Open Primary” all a campaign needed would be 150 signatures from his/her party and meet Constitutional requirements to run for an office here in California. Now, each prospective candidate for state office needs 10,000 valid signatures and/or pays a filing (based on the starting pay of each office) fee. In the case of the Office of Governor, each signature is worth

Stop Bullying And Racism In Education At The CTC -Equal Justice For all Stop Privatization, Charters and the Corruption In Public Education California education workers and students are under attack from bullies through charters and privatization. The California Commission On Teacher Credentials is run by Governor Brown who appoints the commission members. On January 24, 2014 teachers, parents and public education advocates went to the Committee of Creditials to testify about the physical abuse of an African American special education student at the San Francisco  Martin Luther King Middle school in February 2012 by the principal Natalie Eberhard.

Now is the Time for All Good People to Come to the Aid of their Candidate! (Crunch Time for Ballot Access))

February 20th is the deadline for  "Signatures in Lieu" of filing fee to get Cindy Sheehan on the ballot for  Governor here in California. The campaign has been working since January 1st to collect the signatures, and we really do not have a clear idea of how many have been collected, but we believe it is far short of the 10k needed. That means that we will have to pay 35 cents per signature NOT collected, and we also do not have the money on hand in our campaign chest to do that. Please make a DONATION, or PLEDGE today. $3.50 pays for 10 signatures $35 pays for 100 signatures $350 pays for 1000 CLICK TO DONATE, TODAY! In these days of crumbling empire, crumbling economy, and crumbling infrastructure, a NEW DAY and NEW WAY for California are needed. Jerry Brown says: "California is Back" We say: "For the 1%. We want it back for all." Jerry Brown supports fracking and other forms of oil extraction

The State of Iraq Today by Guest Blogger, John Mesler


 Iraq: March 2013 As I've watched the events unfold in the Middle East over the past 24 years it has become alarmingly clear to me that we didn't invade Iraq   in 2003 because we thought they had weapons of mass destruction. We lied.We knew they did NOT have them. Well, at least 6 or 7 "decision and policy makers" knew they didn't.I will explain this the best I can but we now know that mostly every other nation in the world(including the United Nations weapons investigative team which included Scott Ritter) knew it back then. But Still we invaded. The   US, the UK , Saudi Arabia and Israel were in on the plan. The plan I'm speaking of is called the Plan for the New American Century (PNAC) and to understand exactly what it is I would suggest that you google General Wesley Clark's   speech in which he mentions 2 meetings he had in 2002 with a liaison from then Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld office.Generally speaking that
