Mr. President, We Don't Need to Create Artificial Crises. We Have Enough Real Ones.

By Bernie Sanders, Bernie Sanders' Facebook Page

09 January 19

 


r. President, we don’t need to create artificial crises. We have enough real ones.

The scientific community has made it very clear in telling us that climate change is real and is causing devastating harm to our country and the entire planet. And they have told us that if we do not transform our energy system away from fossil fuel the nation and planet we will be leaving our kids and grandchildren may well be unhealthy and even uninhabitable.

Let us end this shutdown and bring the American people together around an agenda that will improve life for all of our people.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

No one could dispute this! How do we stop it from continuing? That is the rub.

How do we stop it from continuing? By quarantining the Oval Office as a seat of infection harmful to the public welfare?

It's all about Orange. Take the cameras OFF HIM and that COULD end the shutdown. If he ends shut down, the cameras will be back on HIM - which is his ONLY concern.

Go BLUE 2020

He’s holding eight hundred thousand Americans hostage. Charge him with terrorism.

- in the attached film clip, as bernie aptly notes, the key to ending the shutdown is to force senate majority leader mcconnell to allow a vote!

if mcconnell won't allow a vote, senate repukes MUST suspend him from leadership long enough to conduct a vote!

until this happens, the public must build pressure on repuke senators until they stop behaving like dickhead's and mcconnell's flunkees, automatons and robots!

GO BERNIE! PIN THE TAIL ON THE STONEWALL!

- yesterday, dickhead's most vocal supporter in the senate, graham, said HE IS "DEPRESSED" AND DOES NOT SEE A WAY OUT OFF THE SHUTDOWN? - DICKHEAD'S SHUTDOWN? - MCCONNELL'S SHUTDOWN?

the way is clear? bernie says MCCONNELL HOLD A VOTE?

and robbee says, if MCCONNELL won't hold a vots? then repuke senators MUST SUSPEND MCCONNELL? UNTIL ANOTHER REPUKE SENATOR HOLDS A VOTE?
