Is Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. choosing a new Presidential-candidate campaign message?

https://www.aol.com/cop-city-protester-killed-officers-032400490.html        –A protester fatally shot by officers in January at the site of a controversial law enforcement training site in Atlanta, Georgia, known as “Cop City” had at least 57 gunshot wounds, according to an autopsy obtained Wednesday by CBS News.

GBI has said there was no officer body camera footage of the shooting.

Is the requirement for ongoing “enemies of the USA” to use as a resource to persecute Americans struggling for civil or human rights, and also environmental rights.  —https://popularresistance.org/indictment-of-african-peoples-socialist-party-is-a-racist-assault-on-the-black-liberation-movement/         —

Not since the Palmer Raids of the early 20th century, nor since the indictment of W.E.B DuBois in 1951, or the confiscation of Paul Robeson’s U.S. passport during the anti-communist “McCarthyist” era, has there been such a hysterical response to African people asserting their rights and freedom of speech in the United States. This renewed attack against anti-imperialist Africans, framed within the absurd notion of “Russian influence,” comes as capitalism decays and U.S. global hegemony loses its hold on the world. The attacks on the APSP and the Uhuru Movement are part of a historical tendency to align African political activists with U.S. “adversary” states to marginalize African internationalism (including solidarity with Cuba and Palestine, for example) and to suppress Black radicalism.–end of popularresistance info–

Environmental protection advocates are aware of the tool by law enforcement of labeling anyone they wish as a domestic terrorist, which label enables exotic levels of jail terms.  Quickly the right to protest and Free Speech are wrestled into the confines of domestic terrorism, the better to persecute.

Greetings from Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Recently, I wrote to you about the Pope’s repudiation of the Doctrine of Discovery. This papal bull from the 1400s and organized religion have played outsized roles in centuries of colonization and subjugation of Indigenous People. In that message, I also connected the dots between religious doctrine and the current attack on the Indian Child Welfare Act. Today, I’m following up by sharing some further thoughts in the form of a blog I co-wrote with my father, Lakota Law co-director Chase Iron Eyes. Please give it a read!

It’s just a big moment in general for Indigenous People on the international stage. In the wake of the Vatican’s announcement, the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues is now meeting in New York City for it’s twenty-second session. 

I’m happy, because this year’s theme at the Forum — “Indigenous Peoples, human health, planetary and territorial health and climate change: a rights-based approach” — is particularly close to my heart. As you may remember, I’ve been bringing attention to climate issues and promoting Indigenous knowledge-based solutions for many years. I’ve spoken on panels, led direct actions, and helped promote the return of sacred lands to Indigenous care.

It’s thus encouraging to hear UN Secretary-General António Guterres back Indigenous communities in his opening address at this year’s event by saying that we “hold many of the solutions to the climate crisis and are guardians of the world’s biodiversity.” That’s true. From the snowy Himalaya to the Amazon Rainforest, from the interior plains of Turtle Island to the Kingdom of Hawaii, aboriginal people have long lived in harmony with the natural splendor of Unci Maka, our Grandmother Earth.

As Mr. Guterres also referenced, our efforts to respect and preserve biodiversity have historically been met with human rights violations (or outright genocide), mostly as a consequence of colonial greed and industry backed by the legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery. So I’m hopeful that U.S. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland of the Laguna Pueblo is correct in remarking at this year’s Forum, “Indigenous Peoples are experiencing a new era unfolding worldwide.”

McIntosh 21 U.S. 543 (1823). Early leaders of the United States were only too happy to recognize the whole lie that Europeans gained a right of “discovery” merely by landing on our shores and performing various rituals. It is by this Doctrine that every subsequent decision of the U.S. Supreme Court and other subordinate courts reinforce this inherently racist and oppressive view of us.

Patriarchy has a history of collaboration with institutionalized religion to suppress others.  If the beliefs of others are so threatening to institutions, one wonders how stable is their own belief system.

https://wildhunt.org/2023/04/editorial-spiritual-warfare-rhetoric-and-anti-pagan-sentiment-is-reaching-contagion.html       –Growing segments of Christian denominations and other conservative faiths are targeting “the occult,” claiming it is a dangerous societal trend that must be exposed. Commensurate with that rise is an increase in Christian media attention about “spiritual warfare” and the need for surveillance and elimination of occult movements – which includes “Witchcraft” and “Paganism.”

So was it Republicans or Democrats who wrote the laws that transferred the wealth of the nation from the 100% to the 1%, and which Administrations signed into law the bills?  Would anyone be surprised to learn the duopoly branches collaborated?  And both received campaign donations from industry in so doing.  And to further enhance this system, industry-mandated education of the financial-industry personnel taught transfer of wealth under the guise of economics.  —

History has excluded the reality of many women.  I was fascinated while reading poems by Emily Dickinson, to realize this nearly-cloistered woman was so much more worldly wise than many highly educated and sophisticated people in 2023, who are probably not aware of punishment imposed upon others, and to a large extent women, in efforts by patriarchy to dominance.

Perhaps along with seeking degrees of graduation from modern-day institutions of higher learning, our youngsters should be informed about those who went before in reality, and not as written into patriarchal history.

Auto-da-fé — the burning of a heretic by the Spanish Inquisition.

“he was burned at the stake in what was arguably the biggest auto-da-fé ever in New Spain”

—-end of definition—-

The Spanish Inquisition seems to have been directed toward so-called heresy as imagined by patriarchal institutions.  Practices perfected in this time seemed to extend into the Middle Ages Witch trials.

One finds it curious that such a noteworthy practice in our common backgrounds, go unmentioned.  

The same patriarchy that wrote laws to undermine women, also did the same for those they wished to colonize.  Was this accidental, or intentional?  And by he way, nature was also in the cross hairs.

http://ili.nativeweb.org/sdrm_art.html              —When Christopher Columbus first set foot on the white sands of Guanahani island, he performed a ceremony to “take possession” of the land for the king and queen of Spain, acting under the international laws of Western Christendom. Although the story of Columbus’ “discovery” has taken on mythological proportions in most of the Western world, few people are aware that his act of “possession” was based on a religious doctrine now known in history as the Doctrine of Discovery. Even fewer people realize that today – five centuries later – the United States government still uses this archaic Judeo-Christian doctrine to deny the rights of Native American Indians.

The enormity of the Establishment manipulation is so astronomical as to be almost unbelievable.  As they say, the best place to hide is in plain sight.****

As one who would be perfectly contented to retain the Senate if they adhered to Oaths of Office more than to Citizens United campaign donations, one is interested in a topic raised as to the reason we maintain the US Senate—-

 This is a reminder of how much we don’t know.  This brings one around to Howie Hawkins, who continues to impress with original thought.  We also could acknowledge Hawkins often speaks to censored information.
One such topic about which one would never have even considered, is whether the USA needs The Senate.  Apparently The Senate is little other than expensive window dressing, promoting hierarchical interests, and too often placed in positions of power by big-money via Citizens United.  But the public gets to fund this curiosity of pompous supremacy.  Who knew?
The Democratic Branch of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly are especially functional in voter suppression—–https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNbdkuU1edw          —#GreenSocialist Notes #76
Howie Hawkins brings up the concept of whether the USA needs the Senate.  Apparently according to some people, the Senate isn’t necessary.  This brings up the blockage from the Senate of many bills that would benefit We The People.  Combined with Citizens United that promotes big-money interest choice of Senators, in which laws are passed that benefit big-money interest rather than We The People, and that We The People support economically, the members of the Senate, this seems a good topic for discussion.
The US Constitution doesn’t seem to sanction elections run by political Parties, and to permit control of political debates by political Parties seems equally corrupt.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ7kn2-GEmM       —

Ross Perot in 1992 on NAFTA and the “Giant Sucking Sound”

Centralization is the lifeblood of the R&D duopoly.  It’s the way to enforce capitalism onto workers in 2022.———————–We can do better———-

That “we are a 2-Party system” is a fabrication of the Republican/Democratic duopoly and spread by MSM.  In FACT the majority of voters aren’t either registered Democratic or Republican.  The censorship about this info must be envied by bureaucrats of the Former USSR and their simplistic style of 1-Party elections.  

Regardless of which character sits in the Oval Office, We The People have work to do to maintain principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  Several items to challenge—*We need the integrity of ranked-choice voting so voters won’t feel compelled to “hold your nose and vote”*Censored debates must be stopped.  The Democratic/Republican duopoly pretends to legitimate debates in what is nothing other than another campaign show.  Independent debates run by uninterested sponsors such as The League of Women Voters, must be restored.  (Access www.debates.org to understand the extent of duopoly control).  The so-called Debate Commission is a corporation to promote the Democratic corporation and Republican corporation, not to inform We The People*Challenge and stop gerrymandering that is a trick especially of the Republican branch of the duopoly.*Stop voter suppression by political Parties, and especially confront and stop Party suppression, which is the over-arching approach to voter suppression.  Party suppression seems to have been the responsibility of the Democratic corporation*Promote by law ranked-choice voting, so we won’t be told again, by D&R duopoly, to “hold your nose and vote”
If these issues are handled, our next elections can be honorable.

WITHDRAWS SUPPORT FROM FINAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE–end of lwv info–Murray Bookchin, who founded social ecology, a theory that strongly influenced early Green Socialist thought, strongly advocated the discussion and study group as the first step of any revolutionary movement. A group of individuals meets to expand their knowledge of radical thought and form a radical intellectual community; through the give and take of discussion, can eventually form ideas for next steps in organizing and political activity. According to Bookchin, study groups help create solidarity and a shared language — with a shared coherent vision — for building a mass, organizing, political movement!
