The true progressive voice that should be heard in the 2016 sham Presidential debates is Jill Stein who through the magic of video and the assistance of Amy Goodman joins the debates as the only true progressive and anti-establishment voice of the people and instead of throwing mud offers concrete political proposals and solutions versus the political posturing of a deeply tarnished Clinton and the incompetent bullying of political pretender Trump as well as a vivid glimpse of what could have happened in a true democracy: Allen L Roland, PhD


'The truth about American politics is this: disguised by the theatrics of squabbling Democrats and Republicans, Washington governs according to limits prescribed by a fixed and narrow consensus. The two main parties collaborate in preserving that consensus. Doing so requires declaring out-of-bounds anything even remotely resembling a fundamental critique of how power gets exercised or wealth distributed.'  ~ Andrew Bacevich


Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton faced off Monday night in one of the most anticipated debates in U.S. history. The debate was held at Hofstra University on Long Island and moderated by NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt.


Throughout the 90-minute, often antagonistic, debate, Clinton and Trump sparred on everything from foreign policy to trade deals to personal stamina. But third-party candidates, including Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein, were excluded from the debate stage under stringent rules set by the Commission on Presidential Debates, which is controlled by the Democratic and Republican parties.


For a more balanced approach, Democracy Now aired excerpts from the presidential debate and got response from Green Party presidential nominee Dr. Jill Stein in a special expanded debate ~ and she answers the same questions that were asked of Trump and Clinton and elevates the conversation in the process. But Stein also has the courage to ask the questions that others are avoiding such as the Five Separate Immunity Deals In the Clinton Email Scandal ~ see Jonathan Turley article;


HILLARY CLINTON: Well, I hope the fact checkers are turned upping ~ turning up the volume and really working hard. Donald supported the invasion of Iraq.


HILLARY CLINTON: That is absolutely~


HILLARY CLINTON: ~ proved over and over again.


HILLARY CLINTON: He actually advocated for the actions we took in Libya, and urged that Gaddafi be taken out ~ after, actually, doing some business with him one time.

AMY GOODMAN: Jill Stein?

DR. JILL STEIN: So, this is another example of why we need to open up these debates, because mostly they are arguing ~ Secretary Clinton and Donald Trump are arguing about their record and who said what, when, and when did they take various positions. We’re not discussing the fundamental fact that we have a catastrophic failed policy of regime change, of a foreign policy based on economic and military domination, which is blowing back at us big time. If we want to have peace at home, we need to achieve peace abroad. And in the words of Martin Luther King, "Peace is not simply the absence of violence: It is the presence of justice."

So, let’s look at our foreign policy. What have these regime change wars accomplished? They’ve cost us $5 to $6 trillion since 9/11, which comes out to about $50,000 per American household. Tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers have been killed and maimed, over a million people killed in Iraq alone. And what do we have for all of this? What we have to show are failed states, mass refugee migrations, which are tearing apart the Middle East and Europe, for that matter, and worse terrorist threats. They are not getting better. They only get worse with each turn of the cycle of violence.

So, we need a new kind of offensive in the Middle East, what we call a peace offensive in the Middle East. And it begins with a weapons embargo. Since we, the United States, are supplying the weapons directly or indirectly to all parties, all combatants on all sides, and we are the major supplier of weapons to the region, as well as around the world, it’s clear that we have enormous power here to initiate this weapons embargo and to work, in fact, with the Russians to achieve it also, because they, too, are paying a price that they cannot afford for these failed wars. In addition, we need to put a freeze on the bank accounts of those countries, largely our allies, who are continuing to fund terrorist enterprises. Hillary Clinton’s own leaked emails as secretary of state identified the Saudis as still the major funder, even many years after 9/11, still the major funder of terrorist Sunni jihad enterprises. We got this started. We can put it to a stop.

AMY GOODMAN: And that does it for Part 1 of our "Expanding the Debate" special. Many stations are running our full two-hour special. For those that aren’t ~ you can go to democracy now.

Must See expanded debate YouTube video ~ 25 minutes


There is only one candidate who sounds and acts presidential and is representing the American people and not special interests ~ that candidate is Jill Stein and she'll get my vote on November 2nd because I deserve a true choice and will not settle for the lesser of two evils.

A vote for the Green Party is not a protest gesture ~ it is a vote for a platform of peace, social justice and a livable planet, and against the War Party of Lies. Bernie sold out on the progressive movement he launched because he didn't trust the power of the people nor, for that matter, his own progressive voice against the establishment.


In essence, Donald Trump is the ultimate false flag candidate put in place by the establishment to further dumb down the political process, avoid the truly important issues of the day, entertain the masses as a grade D political reality show ~ and thus ensure a Clinton victory as the obvious lesser of two evils.

Chief Arvol Looking Horse, of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota Nations, asks us to understand an Indigenous perspective on what has happened to America but also offers a very important message about a solution to turn around these terrible times including justice for the Palestinians. His words should be heeded for they are in essence the same as mine ~ Peace begins with me ~ go within and find your role in the great coming together of mankind and the truth of a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness whose principle property is the universal propensity or urge to unite: Allen L Roland, PhD


You can't wake a person who is pretending to be asleep. - Navajo Proverb

The Sioux Nation standing rock pipeline uprising is indicative of a growing global cry for justice which most certainly includes oppressed Palestinians ~ but brings hope to oppressed people all over the world as well as the realization that the human spirit will never be destroyed but will instead evolve.

The genocide of the Native Americans, similar to the ongoing destruction of the Palestinian Nation, represents one of the low points in the history of human morality ~ where for 500 years, Native Americans witnessed every attempt at erasing them from the face of the planet and their numbers dwindled from 50 million prior to the arrival of Europeans to North America to less than three hundred thousand at the turn of the 20th century

Ramzy Baroud, Transcend Media Service elaborates ~  "Calls to destroy Native Americans were hardly implicit but, rather, clearly-articulated. For example, Spencer Phips, Lieutenant Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Province issued this statement in 1755 on behalf of King George II:  “His Majesty’s subjects to embrace all opportunities of pursuing, captivating, killing and destroying all and every of the aforesaid Indians.”

The price list for the scalp of murdered Natives were as follows: 50 pounds for adult male scalps; 25 for adult female scalps; and 20 for scalps of boys and girls under age 12.”

The genocidal approach to Native Americans continued, unabated.

A century later, in 1851, California Governor Peter H. Burnett made this declaration:A war of extermination will continue to be waged between the two races until the Indian race becomes extinct.”

Palestinians have always felt that the legacy of the Native Americans is similar to their own.

Our names: branching leaves of divine speech; birds that soar higher than a gun. You who come from beyond the sea, bent on war; don’t cut down the tree of our names; don’t gallop your flaming horses across the open plains.”

These were a few of the verses in Palestinian poet’s Mahmoud Darwish’s seminal poem Speech of the Red Indian.”

Palestinians are losing their lives, land and olive trees as they stand up to Israeli tanks and bulldozers. Their reality is a replay of similar experiences faced – and still being confronted – by Native Americans. Well into the 21st century, the Native American-Palestinian struggle remains one and the same.

“Our pastures are sacred, our spirits inspired,
The stars are luminous words where our fable
is legible from beginning to end..”

Wrote Mahmoud Darwish, of the Native Americans. Of the Palestinians. "See article ~


It is particularly disheartening that there are yet to be serious attempts at addressing these grave injustices which continue to this day ~ but there is a growing chorus of prominent voices speaking out like Chris Hedges and Miko Pele on the legitimacy of  the BDS Movement and the need to boycott Israel.

On this week’s episode of On Contact, Chris Hedges discusses the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement with Israeli human rights activist Miko Peled. See article ~

They discuss the global campaign to economically and politically pressure Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian land, grant equality to Arab-Palestinian citizens and allow Palestinian refuges the right of return to their homes. RT Correspondent Anya Parampil examines the history and breadth of the BDS movement and the obvious need to resist ~ which innately joins the Sioux rebellion with the global BDS movement and the common crime of apartheid and ethnic cleansing. See 25  minute video ~ with Hedges and Pele

Thus we have the non-violent peace message of Chief Arvol Looking Horse, of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota Nations, offering a solution to turn around these terrible times against humanity including justice for the oppressed Palestinians as well as the need to unite spirituality as a global nation ~ "or be faced with chaos, disasters, diseases, and tears from our relatives' eyes"

The Native Americans see the birth of a white buffalo calf as the most significant of prophetic signs, equivalent to the weeping statues, bleeding icons, and crosses of light that are becoming prevalent within the Christian churches today. Where the Christian faithful who visit these signs see them as a renewal of God's ongoing relationship with humanity  ~ so do the Native Americans see the white buffalo calf as the sign to begin life's sacred hoop.


"The arrival of the white buffalo is like the second coming of Christ," says Floyd Hand Looks For Buffalo, an Oglala Medicine Man from Pine Ridge, South Dakota. "It will bring about purity of mind, body, and spirit and ;unify all nations ~ black, red, yellow, and white." He sees the birth of a white calf as an omen because they happen in the most unexpected places and often among the poorest people in the nation. The birth of the sacred white buffalo provides those within the Native American community with a sense of hope and an indication that good times are to come."   See legend description ~

See video on White Buffalo ~

Excerpt :

" I have been learning about these important issues since the age of 12 when I received the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle and its teachings. Our people have strived to protect Sacred Sites from the beginning of time. These places have been violated for centuries and have brought us to the predicament that we are in at the global level.

Our ancestors have been trying to protect our Sacred Site called the Sacred Black Hills in South Dakota, "Heart of Everything That Is," from continued violations. Our ancestors never saw a satellite view of this site, but now that those pictures are available, we see that it is in the shape of a heart and, when fast-forwarded, it looks like a heart pumping.

The Diné have been protecting Big Mountain, calling it the liver of the earth, and we are suffering and going to suffer more from the extraction of the coal there and the poisoning processes used in doing so.

The Aborigines have warned of the contaminating effects of global warming on the Coral Reefs, which they see as Mother Earth's blood purifier.

The indigenous people of the rainforest say that the rainforests are the lungs of the planet and need protection.

The Gwich'in Nation in Alaska has had to face oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge coastal plain, also known to the Gwich'in as "Where life begins."

The coastal plain is the birthplace of many life forms of the animal nations. The death of these animal nations will destroy indigenous nations in this territory.

As these destructive developments continue all over the world, we will witness many more extinct animal, plant, and human nations, because of mankind's misuse of power and their lack of understanding of the "balance of life "

The Indigenous people warn that these destructive developments will cause havoc globally. There are many, many more indigenous teachings and knowledge about Mother Earth's Sacred Sites, her chakras, and connections to our spirit that will surely affect our future generations.

There needs to be a fast move toward other forms of energy that are safe for all nations upon Mother Earth. We need to understand the types of minds that are continuing to destroy the spirit of our whole global community. Unless we do this, the powers of destruction will overwhelm us.

Not everyone will have the right to drink safe water. We fail to appreciate and honor our Sacred Sites, ripping out the minerals and gifts that lay underneath them as if Mother Earth were simply a resource, instead of the source of life itself.

Attacking nations and using more resources to carry out destruction in the name of peace is not the answer! We need to understand how all these decisions affect the global nation; we will not be immune to its repercussions. Allowing continual contamination of our food and land is affecting the way we think.

A "disease of the mind" has set in world leaders and many members of our global community, with their belief that a solution of retaliation and destruction of peoples will bring peace.

In our prophecies it is told that we are now at the crossroads: Either unite spiritually as a global nation, or be faced with chaos, disasters, diseases, and tears from our relatives' eyes.

We are the only species that is destroying the source of life, meaning Mother Earth, in the name of power, mineral resources, and ownership of land. Using chemicals and methods of warfare that are doing irreversible damage, as Mother Earth is becoming tired and cannot sustain any more impacts of war.

I ask you to join me on this endeavor. Our vision is for the peoples of all continents, regardless of their beliefs in the Creator, to come together as one at their Sacred Sites to pray and meditate and commune with one another, thus promoting an energy shift to heal our Mother Earth and achieve a universal consciousness toward attaining Peace.

As each day passes, I ask all nations to begin a global effort, and remember to give thanks for the sacred food that has been gifted to us by our Mother Earth, so the nutritional energy of medicine can be guided to heal our minds and spirits.

This new millennium will usher in an age of harmony or it will bring the end of life as we know it. Starvation, war, and toxic waste have been the hallmark of the great myth of progress and development that ruled the last millennium.

To us, as caretakers of the heart of Mother Earth, falls the responsibility of turning back the powers of destruction. You yourself are the one who must decide.

You alone – and only you – can make this crucial choice, to walk in honor or to dishonor your relatives. On your decision depends the fate of the entire World.

Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind "
