We must DE-MILITARIZE our democracy!

March 21, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

It’s Time to Demilitarize Our Democracy.  The national security state has come to dominate our ostensibly “civilian” government. See this February 1, 2021, article by Mandy Smithberger and William D. Hartung  https://www.thenation.com/article/politics/military-pentagon-democracy/?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily%2002.01.2021&utm_term=daily   It was also posted here on  January 29, 2021:  Demilitarizing Our Democracy:  How the National Security State Has Come to Dominate a “Civilian” Government https://www.juancole.com/2021/01/demilitarizing-democracy-government.html                

Virginia is the first Southern state to abolish the death penalty

March 21, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

In the U.S., the South has been executing more people than any other part of the nation.  But the big news now is that in early February 2021 Virginia became the first Southern state to abolish the death penalty.  Here are two articles about this:   Both chambers of the Virginia state legislature voted to abolish the state’s death penalty in early February 2021. Virginia has committed the most executions of any state other than Texas – a total of 113 since 1976, and hundreds more in the centuries prior.  The links here were written shortly before Gov. Ralph Northam […]

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons is a POWERFUL step toward PEACE!

January 30, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The February 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series provides you with a powerful, inspiring, exciting worldwide campaign that is already making powerful progress toward abolishing nuclear weapons. American politicians and American news media have grossly failed to inform the American people about the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.  The United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly approved it in July 2017.  Already, 51 nations have ratified the Treaty, and we expect many more during 2021 and beyond.  The Treaty went into effect on January 22, 2021 for the nations that have ratified it. During this TV interview Joanne […]

Click LINKS to urge removing Trump by impeachment and/or the 25th Amendment

January 9, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Please share this powerful resource with your friends, family members, e-mail lists, etc. Time is short!  We must immediately demand Congress and others take strong actions now!   Basic Information: Like other presidents, Trump took this Oath of Office in January 2017: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Many, many times throughout the past four years, Trump has violated it.  The worst violations occurred a few days ago when […]

It’s time to stop federal executions and repeal the death penalty

This came from the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker-based non-profit organization that works for peace and social justice: https://www.afsc.org/blogs/news-and-commentary/its-time-to-stop-federal-executions-and-repeal-death-penalty?utm_source=weekendreading120520&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=weekendreading&emci=bf56e1d8-7635-eb11-9fb4-00155d43b2cd&emdi=515495f6-fd36-eb11-9fb4-00155d43b2cd&ceid=882844      

Short videos: Innocent people speak about having been released from death row.

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

From 1973 through 2020, a total of 173 INNOCENT PERSONS were released from death row! See the data compiled by the Death Penalty Information Center at https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/policy-issues/innocence-database See the link below in which SIX of these exonerees tell their stories in very brief videos. FIRST-HAND EXPERIENCES are very compelling. Death row exonerees are living proof that innocent people are sentenced to death. They are living proof that WE MUST ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY. These videos were created and distributed by Witness to Innocence (www.witnesstoinnocence.org). WATCH THEM AT THIS LINK: https://www.witnesstoinnocence.org/imlivingproof?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=4faf9825-e61a-45f8-b4b1-bfbd8bd56c94        

Sign the petition: Impeach Trump for trying to steal the election.

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

This information and petition came out on Tues. Jan. 5, 2021: Donald Trump was just caught on tape trying to overturn the result of the 2020 election. We cannot let him get away with it. On Saturday Trump called Georgia’s Secretary of State and, according to an audio recording of the call obtained by the Washington Post, Trump asked him to find enough votes to overturn Biden’s win and hand Georgia to Trump.1 “I just want to find 11,780 votes,” Trump demanded. Congress cannot let Trump get away with this brazen attempt to destroy our democracy. Sign the petition: Tell […]

Sign the petition: Trump has broken the law. He must be investigated and charged.

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

I signed a petition saying Trump has broken the law. He must be investigated and charged. Please consider signing.  See the link after this informative paragraph: Donald Trump was caught on tape trying to rig a presidential election. In the audio, published by The Washington Post, Trump repeatedly pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to declare that Trump had won more votes in the state than Biden. And he urged Georgia officials to ‘find’ enough votes (11,780) to overturn the outcome. Not only is this a blatant and disgusting attack on American democracy, this is ILLEGAL! Enacted and established […]

Trump plans more executions before Jan. 20. Sign petition to STOP THIS EXECUTION scheduled for TUES JAN 12!

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

A few months ago Trump and his Attorney General William Barr scheduled MANY executions to occur before Trump’s scheduled end of office on January 20, 2021.  The federal death penalty is every bit as cruel and unjust as the death penalty that is allowed by various states’ laws. A growing number of states have abolished the death penalty, some other states have moratoriums on actually conducting executions, and some other states have retained their death penalty law but never use it.  Executions do occur in several states.  For information about the federal death penalty, state-by-state information, methods of execution, problems, etc., […]

Trump profits hugely from playing golf on his properties

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

When Trump goes to his properties (Mar a Lago, etc.) to play golf, the taxpayers pay to fly Air Force One, and the taxpayers PAY TRUMP to house and feed his huge entourage of Secret Service officers, presidential staffers, etc., to stay in his overpriced hotels and eat overpriced meals there.  Trump rips off the taxpayers VERY OFTEN for this purpose.  The Constitution prohibits this:  The “emoluments” clause EXPLICITLY PROHIBITS using presidential power for personal enrichment, but the House Democrats REFUSED to impeach Trump for this blatantly unconstitutional crime.   Washington Post confirms that Trump has charged the US a […]
