Bernie takes the gloves off and goes after Biden

He Doesn't Understand

          Trump is incapable of understanding the concept of law:

Trump doubled down while speaking to reporters on Air Force One.
 
          "They're allowed to kill our people. They're allowed to torture and maim our people. They're allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people," he said. "And we're not allowed to touch their cultural site? It doesn't work that way."

Iraq, Iran, and Venezuela - a common thread

In 2000, Iraq switched away from selling oil for dollars, to selling oil for Euros. Then we went to war with Iraq.

Syria is trying to build a competing pipeline to oil to the European market. So we went to war in Syria.

In 2019, Venezuela and Iran created petro cryptocurrencies to use for oil trade. Now we're going to war with Iran. I suppose Venezuela was a little too close to home for an actual invasion, but we came close, didn't we?

Choosing Survival?

How do we survive all the intersecting crises? There are strategies. A good starting point might be to stop creating wars and coups around the world, and follow up with the cessation of fossil fuel ASAP. We could perhaps manage to save our species, but it will take serious action. Can we overcome the powers who strive to maintain the status quo, and move forward toward sustainability, peace, and true prosperity? Will we even try? I don't know, but I do understand that there are ways to minimize our many impacts and increase the likelihood of human survival. Today let's look at promising practices and ways to create a stable future.

Thanks Obama!

I'm sure that's what the Orange Monster with tiny hands occupying the oval office is thinking to himself right now. How could he not?

I lay the blame for Trump's blatantly illegal assassination of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and seven others at Baghdad’s international airport in the early morning hours of Friday, squarely at Obama's feet. Sure Trump ordered “the hit”, but Obama made it established doctrine, ie “normal” to drone murder “suspects”.
