Agelbert NOTE: Please watch these four videos from the Thom Hartmann show. They provide extremely valuable information about what is REALLY 🐉going on in government.

Thom Hartmann Feb. 20, 2018 2:00 pm


In a time when kids are becoming more and more politically active, getting out there and taking stake in their democracy, Republicans like Idaho State Senator Dan Foreman, are doing their best to discourage them? Why !



Florida based white nationalist group Republic Of Florida, along with bad actors online faked, Nikolas Cruz's membership in their group for laughs?

Rep Ro Khanna  wants To Demilitarize the Police in addition to Gun Control Measures



Representative Ro Khanna joins the program today, will Marijuana legalization mean freedom for people behind bars, Is there a connection between United States Empire and the problem with people walking in our schools?

E-mail sent to me by Senator Leahy on Februaury 20, 2018

Dear Mr. Gelbert:

I regret that you are contacting me in light of another mass shooting.  Parkland, Florida is added to an ever-growing list of cities struck by unconscionable violence.

The day following the shooting in Parkland, the Senate held a moment of silence.  While this moment allowed us all to reflect on the horrific violence, and remember the lives lost and families that are suffering, our reflections and thoughts are simply not enough.  Congress must not stop here, and I will not stop here.

First and foremost, it is common sense that assault weapons specifically designed for the battlefield should not be on our streets, in our schools, or in our churches.  That is why, last fall, I joined several colleagues in introducing the Automatic Gun Fire Prevention Act, to close a loophole that allows semi-automatic weapons to be easily modified to fire at the rate of automatic weapons, which have been illegal for more than 30 years.  Additionally, we need universal background checks for firearms purchases—so criminals and others cannot abuse the internet and gun shows to evade background checks.  I am among the millions of responsible gun owners who undergo background checks and understand it is important to keep guns out of the wrong hands.

The Fix NICS Act of 2017, S. 2135, was introduced by Senator John Cornyn on November 15, 2017, and it attempts to help enforce current, existing laws regarding the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, specifically in regards to the requirement that federal agencies notify the FBI of any prohibited purchasers.  The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing to examine this legislation on December 6, and it is now up to the Chairman of the Committee to advance the legislation.

I am heartbroken by this violence.  I mourn the lives of those lost, and cannot stop thinking about the difficult times ahead for families and friends that have lost loved ones.  There are no more excuses.  Please know I am committed to passing commonsense gun legislation.  Just like I advanced, as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2013, commonsense measures that would require universal background checks, strengthen firearms trafficking laws, and renew the ban on assault weapons.  Republicans then filibustered those measures on the Senate floor.  We must do better in order to protect our communities. 

Thank you for contacting me. I know it is a deeply emotional topic and I appreciate hearing your thoughts.  Please keep in touch.

Sincerely,

PATRICK LEAHY
United States Senator

My role with Hedge Clippers started about two and a half years ago, give or take, after Alejandro García Padilla, who was the governor, announced on The New York Times, "We can't pay bondholders 🦀 and bondholders🦖 won't negotiate with us." So, we started looking at who the bondholders were and, as I said earlier, they were very much the same bondholders 🦖🦀 that we had seen in places like Argentina and Greece. A lot of people thought that was interesting and we wanted to look at it.

What Happened to Democracy?


It would be out of character in any other Representative Democracy for a Senator to send Cease and Desist Letters to their constituents, so why is it okay for Republican Senator Tom Cotton?

Agelbert NOTE: The USA is a  Inverted Totalitarian Fascist (i.e. Dictatorship pig 🐽 with democracy lipstick 🐷) country, PERIOD.

I spent years as a foreign correspondent in Latin America. To say we are being governed like a banana republic is an insult to banana republics. It’s that bad, and no one should pretend otherwise.

Agelbert NOTE: These three videos evidence that

1) the overwhelming majority of the US voting public 🕊DO support correct policies in government,

2) there is ZERO democracy in the USA 🍌 (for the last several DECADES!) and

3)
the fascist fossil fuel industry 😈 is at the top of the Wall Street heap of criminals that corrupted, and continue to corrupt, local, state and federal government. The Banksters lie, cheat and steal in lockstep with the fossil fuelers because they are both part of the same profit over people and planet 100% UNDEMOCRATIC, FASCIST modus operand.

We-the-people ARE on the proper side of ALL the issues, regardless of what the right wing greed balls in many forums claim.

We-the-people's position on ALL the issues IS the political center of the USA, though it is called the "far left socialist" position by the main stream liars for right wing Wall Street fascism news media AND the fascist two party duopoly. Have a nice day.  ;D
