The Ineffectual and Dangerous Concept of Lesser-Evilism by Cindy Sheehan


The recent Dump Trump, then Battle Biden piece written by Noam Chomsky, et al and signed by a few dozen liberal activists and authors, who recycle this twaddle every four years, makes many logical, factual, and rhetorical errors.

Arguably, the main error is that no matter how terrible is a Democrat candidate for POTUS; no matter how many wars he supported; no matter how many women/girls he publicly molested; no matter how many cops went un-prosecuted; no matter how many immigrant families were separated at the border; no matter how many billions of dollars were transferred from the poor to the already wealthy; no matter how much corruption and pork barrel politics have been tied to him; and no matter how far he has gone in a state of mental decline; etc: THAT HE OWNS OUR VOTES.

According to the letter, the signers are not in love with Democrat candidate Joe Biden, but it seems their only “beef” with him is that he is “beholden to the elites.” He IS one of those political elite and has been a profound part of the decadence and violence of the U.S. political establishment for decades and an architect of many of the paths that led the U.S. straight to a Trump regime.

Another rhetorical and factual error in the very title of this piece is that after Trump is dumped that these same people will “Battle Biden,” their very support of him waters that threat down.s PLUS it’s been historically shown that these same liberal forces will NOT “Battle” a Democrat. They may make peeps and squeaks during a Democrat regime, but deep into the 3rd year of the election cycle, they will revert to the same rubbish demonstrated in this letter. 

The most troubling aspect of this is that many of these signers lead progressive movements and have considerable influence over people who are disgusted with the current climate and establishment politics and may be leaning towards voting for alternate candidates to the Twin Parties of War and Wall Street. However, feeling politically fearful, they then may in turn be influenced to support the Empire by garbage like this. I have worked with many of the signers and they have done some very good things, but, in my opinion, their support of an anti-democratic candidate like Biden in a nation where elections are routinely compromised, makes their other work lose credibility. Many claim to be “anti-Capitalist, pro-feminist, and antiwar," but their advocacy for a Capitalist, deviant, war criminal undermines their stated values.

I believe that no political party or candidate is entitled to our votes, or support, but if the signers of the DTBB letter want to vote for a major War Criminal and elitist, that’s their own business. However, making a public political statement leaves them open for exposure and criticism.

Didn't the Obama regime prove that no matter who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, the bloody U.S. empire continues, because the problem is systemic, not cosmetic? Voting for Joe Biden will be just like slapping a fresh coat of white paint on a dilapidated building and thinking everything is somehow fine now.

Should Trump be "dumped?" 

Of course, but in a country with actual political opposition, more viable options, and real, not false, democracy, Trump never would have happened in the first place.

It is also time that intellectuals and activists stop pretending that every bad thing about this country started with Trump.  The signers of the Dump Trump then Battle Biden could use their considerable influence to lead their followers to true change and a better society, instead they choose to vote-bully out of fear and feckless assertions.

The Sham and Shame of U.S. "Democracy" (SOAPBOX PODCAST SEPTEMBER 20, 2020)


                                    SEPTEMBER 20, 2020



TOPIC: The sham and shame of U.S. "Democracy"




This week, after the firestorms and smoke blankets have somewhat alleviated in Northern California, Cindy is back with a bang, chatting with election choice activist Christina Tobin who founded

Free and Equal Elections

in 2008.


Please listen to this timely and important conversation and share with your friends, or frenemies.







Kevin Zeese, ¡Presente! (1955-2020) (Soapbox Archives of Kevin's Interviews)


Cindy and Kevin Zeese at a Protest in DC

Our friend Kevin Zeese suddenly passed away from a heart attack at aged 64 on September 6, 2020.
Kevin was a very kind person, father, partner of activist Margaret Flowers, and generous activist himself who was always very open with his time, resources, and energy to many movements: from antiwar, to national healthcare, to Venezuela solidarity, and Green Party politics (and much more). I first met Kevin in May of 2005, about a year after my son Casey was killed in Iraq. We worked with other activists in exposing the 2002 Downing Street Minutes which showed that the US's invasion of Iraq was definitely based on lies. 
We send our love and condolences to Kevin's family and his partner Margaret Flowers.

SalonGate: Nancy Pelosi Further Reveals her Corruption in the Age of Covid19 by Cindy Sheehan

Then House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Cindy Sheehan
September 2005
Where Nancy lied to  Cindy, saying, "You help us win the house net year and we'll help YOU end the wars." 

In the summer/fall of 2005, I became quite the cause célèbre of the Democrat party and their sycophants after I sat in a ditch in Crawford Texas to demand a meeting with then president George W. Bush to ask him "For What Noble Cause," he had killed my son, Spc Casey Sheehan and hundreds of thousands of others in Iraq: both civilian and military.
It was fashioned as a "David v. Goliath" moment as a grieving mother had the audacity to demand a meeting with the "most powerful" man on the planet. Of course, I never got my meeting, but clever democrat political operatives like Nancy Pelosi saw me and the antiwar movement as a way for her Democrats to win back the majority in the House and create the "First Female Speaker of the House."
As the photo above shows, I did meet with her in September of that year and she told me straight to my face, "Cindy, if you help us (Democrats) win the House next year, we'll help YOU end the wars." Shame on me, because I believed that lying venomous snake posing as a human being, and I did go all over the country speaking at rallies opposing the republicans and supporting the Democrats. Well, like all venomous snakes, she struck, and when she did become the "First Female Speaker of the House," she betrayed the movement in general, and me, specifically. 
Soon after the Dems were ensconced (for a bit) in the House majority, I left the party and soon after that, I announced that I would run against Nancy Pelosi in San Francisco because she refused to end the wars, or to hold George and Dick accountable for war crimes and crimes against humanity: but what do Nancy P and her ilk care about humanity, as they are barely human themselves. (As an independent in 2008, I did come in second with almost 17% of the vote, but as we say "second place in only first loser").
Among the reasons for running against her, our campaign discovered along with the rest of the world, that while on the House Intelligence Committee, Nancy had been fully briefed on the torture methods being used against the so-called enemy, and she basically was reported as saying something like, "Can't we torture them more?" However, as righteous as our campaign was, most of the people of SF don't seem to mind they regularly re-elect a person of such low moral character and zero ethical accountability. It is also well-known that her husband Paul and Sen. Dianne Feinstein's husband Richard Blum have profited very handsomely from their wives' positions in government and they both have mansions there in Pacific Heights as testaments to their corruption and hubris.

It's not in the scope of the piece to detail every disgusting thing Pelosi has done for decades as a craven Dem operative, but let's fast-forward to the garbage year of 2020---the year California has been shut down and its economy one hair width away from total annihilation from all the proclamations and orders of Nancy's nephew (by marriage) Gavin Newsom. One of his authoritarian diktats was that beauty salons and barber shops must not serve customers indoors--(never mind very few can realistically move their sinks, chairs, hair dryers, etc, outdoors)---many salon owners, stylists, and barbers here and elsewhere are suffering heavily under these orders and many are single mothers who rely on their businesses to provide for their families. It's a very tough situation, to be sure. (Beginning September 1, it seems that salons and barber shops can operate indoors with strict protocols, but that was not in affect when Nancy went to get washed and blown out).

Well, this past weekend, it was revealed that Nancy's assistant made an appointment at a salon in San Francisco with one of the independent contractor stylists there. Exposed security footage revealed Nancy in the salon without a mask getting services. The owner of the salon Erika Kious made the footage available and her reasoning was that if a very powerful and fabulously wealthy woman in an at-risk age group could feel comfortable going into a salon to get services, then salons should be fully, and safely, opened and customers should also feel safe in returning. 

I just have to say that I don't believe Nancy's complaints that she was "set-up" and text messages between the salon owner and the stylist Jonathan (a supporter of Pelosi's) don't support his or Pelosi's version of the story. Nancy claims that she thought that each stylist could have one customer---well, if that were true, then all the salons and barber shops would just have been open, right? It's not a high worker per customer business in the first place. And Nancy should know that ignorance of the "law" is no excuse for violating it. If the top law-maker in the freaking country doesn't know what is going on in her own state, then she's more pathetic than I thought. 
Nancy claims that Erika owes her an apology, but how dare that elitist jerk that hasn't missed one paycheck (which she doesn't even need) this entire year shit on a working-woman who is seeing her hard work and business circle the cesspool that is politics in California. How dare the liberals in San Francisco support this war criminal over a struggling worker? Nancy has long owed the American people an apology and how long will this power-hungry oligarch be enabled in her crimes and corruption?
I already know that personally, and professionally Nancy is a skilled liar (honesty is not a known quality for a politician, especially one who has lied her way to the literal top) and I know that Erika is a Trump supporter, but when families are withering here in California, it's criminal to politicize Covid-19---if masks and deprivation are good enough for the people, then Nancy needs to put up or shut the hell up.
I am a socialist who opposes capitalism, but I am also pro-worker and pro-family and it's also been long overdue that both parties of war and Wall Street are defeated and deposed. Until that glorious time happens, we need to keep exposing the crimes of the "ruling" class and Nancy Pelosi is at the top of that dung heap.
