Green Party, Jill Stein for Prez: Urgent: Midnight tonight, 10-17-12, 3:26 PM: Our last FEC deadline is at midnight tonight and every dollar will make a difference. After last night, it’s more clear than ever before -- we must show the establishment the mounting demand for a Green New Deal.

Can you pitch in $50-100 today?

Our arrests at the Commission on Presidential Debates’ (CPD) event last night has gone completely viral but we need the resources to keep up. Most Americans are fed up with politics as usual and with your support we will get out the message that there is an alternative to the two establishment parties.

Please dig deep. This is our final FEC deadline before election night.

It’s great to be back on the campaign trail and I am so moved by the wave of support we’ve received from every corner of the nation. None of this would be possible without you. Thank you.

~ Jill Stein

p.s. - A first-time donor has pledged to contribute up to $1000 in matching funds for anyone in Massachusetts who gives up to $200 (more than ten times any donation he’s made to a candidate before!). Please forward to anyone you know in the state.

Jill Stein's presidential campaign is getting nothing, in terms of media coverage, compared to what Obama and Romney are getting; not surprisingly since they have enormous advertising budgets and since mainstream media is owned by the same coporations that own the two major parties- yet, you know this corporatist and oligarchic influence and control of the media is contrary to any and all democratic processes. For transparency, an educated polity, etc., the Green Party's message, and Jill Stein's presidential campaign, etc., should get more acceptance on your shows to ensure the citizens of the United States are given the opportunity to hear from a candidate who has real solutions for moving this country forward; i.m.h.o..

Sites to send emails and letters, to your Senators, etc.: 



Sample letter text:

They say women have no rights to affordable healthcare, women’s healthcare, reproductive care, equal wages for equal work, etc..  They say "contraception isn't a right", and are now trying to insist through legislation; while they make believe they're against abortion and disease, we can stop their devolutionary directions' destruction by dispelling the republican conspiracies pathological lying, and even the dinos pathological half-truthing, with truth telling- let's.   Currently, yes Trayvon was racially profiled, killed, yet, let's get all the facts.  All smearing in this multi-media conspiracy weapon of mass-distraction tragedy is wrong; until there's a factual and complete timeline presented, all we know is 2 'have it like that' individuals collided and the one with the gun and the dad whose a judge won, tragically, so far- indicating the "stand your ground law" isn't appropriate for united suck of assassins citizens, at this time, while self defense is necessary, the law must be changed, "feeling your life might be threatened" is too low a threshold for a deadly force response.  Oh, yeah, no "million hoodie march", besides the fact that hoods, short for hoodlums, do wear hoods, and this is a necessary warning sign for everyone to note, in their constant self-defense, spending 200 million dollars on a show of how much the supposed left is a media whore, and marketeers on tragedies and the left, isn't allowable 6 months before a presidential elections cycle.  The attacks on Trayvon's reputation in the media are disgraceful, and disrespectful to his memory and his mourning family, as well.  These attacks reflect the same kind of racial profiling and stereotyping that led to his death and then protected his killer from investigation and arrest, yet, how many others, non-African-Americans, for example, were murdered or killed, that same day, and they‘ve no relevance to the supposed civil rights movement.  Trayvon's killer, George Zimmerman, still hasn't been arrested. The focus of the media and our public officials should be on getting justice for Trayvon and addressing the dangers of racial profiling in our society.  As well, just because Zimmerman was wrong, that doesn’t make Trayvon right, why was he in a gated community he wasn’t visiting, etc..  All supremacies from all conspiracies within all demographics, who all collaborate with the white supremacy, must stop dictating their demographics embrace the devolutionary direction of the corporate structure’s convolution; and support allowing kids to be kids, and young women to become women, at minimum, before they’re introduced to any and all forms of corporate whoring.  The war on the middle-class to poor targets men, and more acutely, non-remocrat boys to men who are Caucasian, first, destroying infants testicles; second, using the republican’s psychic terrorism, the ‘suck’, to assassinate infants in the crib, feeding on their souls; third, raping them repeatedly to destroy their defenses and anus, fourth, over-stimulating them in every way so they might think there’s something wrong with them while all conspirators attack them in every way, including anatomical destruction to prevent them from getting sports contracts, etc., fifth, separating their astral bodies, souls, from their bodies during dreaming, with ‘falling off the cliff’ scenarios where one’s astral body leaves the body before it hit’s the ground, and is then led to understand the immense freedom an astral body can have, instilling in the astral body a dread of returning to the body, and its life, that is destroyed and weakened by all conspirators continually attacking the boys; sixth, can consist of enumerable scenarios where through voodoo, yoodoo, satanism, supposed Yoruba, Santiera, Sikh, Shinto, Witchcraft, Kali, Druidism, etc., the astral body is stolen from them, and led to the demonic forces of the republican conspiracies’ psychic terrorism, the suck, destroying as it is ordered to.  This is why I disagree with Islamic countries, in their general, deeming of the united suck of assassins the “great satan“, for, the ancient Hebraic, then Judeo-Christian, and presently, the Roman Catholic imperial lies purporting the existing of a devil, etc., while swallowed whole by those weak minded enough to be brainwashed into being believers, abominations, instead of students of the real: Jesus’ teachings, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, art science, agnostics, atheists, Buddhism, art, science, Wicca, Native American Spirituality, existentialists, Shinto, psychology, Sikh, etc., knowers, are just that, lies; yet, the republican’s psychic terrorism, the suck, is the closest thing to a devil that has ever existed on earth- so, the ”great” part, must, at least, be removed, for power garnered from pedocide programs that mass sexually attack non-remocrat Caucasian boys, their target group, by the Roman Catholic Empire, Hindu cults, etc., could hardly be called great, as they all are cowards.  As well, all who support the pedocide programs of the military, etc., are cowards and aiders and abetters of pedos; therefore, pedos themselves- who could possibly pay even a dollar of taxes that goes directly into the pockets of the pedos the gov’t orders to sexually attack their own kids?  Also, why doesn’t the U.N. get all the money it needs, so it can fully support the I.C.C., etc., the U.S. taxpayers have so much money robbed from their gov’t, they don’t fund the U.N. more, as they could and should.  Every time you pay a dollar in tax: subsidies to sports stadiums, etc., you’re paying a sports industry that anatomically destroys your boys to stop them from competing to get sports contracts, all of whose participants profit off the genocide of non-remocrat Caucasian boys to men; for the remocrat dominated military, police, intelligence, etc., industrial complexes, you’re supporting the ever increasing theft of your tax dollars by them, for, they only wish to replicate themselves, grow, steal more as hey get more powerful, making their desired unnecessary “unending” global blitzkrieg war a future realism; of the $ 500. you pay to every Israeli citizen yearly, you’re enabling their destruction of Palestine, and foreign aggression, cementing their supposed policy of peace and their real policy of it’s never going to happen; to the defense dept., a large % of it goes to usa military bases abroad, and the dino-in-chief is increasing the number, in Australia, etc., directing paying for the military protection of the world by you, not the citizens of those countries, so, they don’t have to, they use those tax dollars they don’t have to spend on military to have an exponentially better way of life than usa citizens do, etc., just so the republicans can get their cut of that scam money; a % of it goes to the medical industrial complex of technocratic innovation as their panacea, medical model Dr. Mengeles, who uber-charge for unnecessary almost everything, and premeditatedly mass destroy and murder their patients as they’re ordered to, for e.g., when you get a fancy test, the results are communicated to the psychic terrorism, informing them on how to murder you more effectively, etc.; a % goes to the engineered over the last decade, pre “Plessey vs. Ferguson” supremacy court decision, education system of 70 years ago, being born again, where a “separate and unequal” education system was allowed, by the ”ebony and ivory, working together in perfect harmony…”, supposed Christian conspiratorial white, black, etc., supremacists, republicans, immoral minority, and kluckers, all aboard the S.S. Tea Party tugboat dragging the dead in the water usa Ship of State into the rocks, with the mostly civil wrongs movement blacks, together engineering the vouchers for whites, charter schools for blacks &lsquorivatization’ and religious domination of the education system to destroy the public school system, the teachers, etc., unions, and dictate the engineering of society wide defacto-slavery through most tax dollars going to supposed Christian schools, and public ones getting naught, determining a populace of have education and have not…, citizens, determining an ever-increasing chasm between the haves and the have-nots, etc., not to forget the fraud of “merit pay” for those teachers deemed worthy, supremacist birds of different feathers flocking together, klucking all the way to the bank.  Not to forget the somewhat pre-Renaissance higher education system, where tenured professors rule academia, which manufactures well packaged replicant machine parts for the corporate structure’s convolutions, la machine’s, replication, actual education is almost nowhere to be found, the primacy of the delusional construct of materialism abounds; which is key to the devolutionary direction of addictions, vampirism, gambling, etc., increasing, as well.   Remocrat politicians can now get away with flip flopping on even the existence of climate change, need for contraception to prevent disease and abortion, etc., due to caving dinos, and therefore, the evolution isn‘t even mentioned-any of those thieves of your taxes can alone dictate the extinction of humanity and large mammals, and together, they most certainly will.  As well, female supremacists can’t collaborate with black, white, etc., supremacists in gradually taking away women’s reproductive healthcare and rights, as well as choice; the price they’ll pay when they do will be much greater than the crumbs they get off the republicans plate.  Happy Rhodes sings, “words weren’t meant for cowards, be brave…“; write on.  They say, the brave are those who stand when standing is hard; I say it’s when you only stand, "all endowed with inalienable rights..." (regardless of the fact that the dino-in-chief has taken away any and all rights from everyone except himself with the NDAA law, for all intents and purposes), yet, we only have the ones we exercise; remember the constitution republicans- that includes women.  As well, I've said the united suck of assassins is a country of extremists, supremacists of every conspiracy within every demographic, conspiring with the republican conspiracy (which is why the remocrats keep winning even though they're only 20 % of the population, the dempublicans keep building them up), including academic, supposed Christian (the 'good cop', some of the civil wrongs movement, 'bad cop', all republicans, S.S Tea Partiers, our taliban and al-queda), supposed Sikh, LGBTQ, etc.; Machiavellians and uber-ones, at minimum fascists to nazis, one and all- it's not even a possibility that the evolution's direction can stand against the corporate structure's convolution's devolutionary one, at this rate.  The republicans final solution, to steal everything from everyone through the extermination to extinction of humanity and large mammals, technocracies of the world have permanently altered weather cycles causing the increase in the amount and severity of supposedly natural disasters, yet, we know all life are necessary threads in the fabric of life, we can’t allow to be torn asunder. Extermination of humanity, large mammals, determined by the republican conspiracy, globally, millions of birds falling from the sky, fish dead in the water, etc., must be heeded now; before they sukceed in dictating the extinction of humanity and large mammals- as well as the destruction of the earth, and, possibly, all life as you know it. Life is indivisible, struggling with global unnecessary unending war is necessary; although, the intellect can‘t lead, for the life doesn‘t follow. Remember a lesson from WWII, if you’re not taking bullets, you’re making them, and fascism is the last step before the complete backslide to Nazism, possession is only nine-tenths of the law in a poverty stricken mind, centrism among extremists is Nazism, don't be it or allow it; Ghandi said “…be the change you wish to see in the world“, and Castaneda said, “discipline is the art of feeling awe”, etc.. Turn 360 degrees around, back to the evolution, dispelling the convolutions devolutionary direction; and getting back to the real future, we'll only have if you do! By abolishing the over use of fossil fuels (vaporizing the spirit and sucking the very blood of the earth, like the remocrat conspiracy does through their psychic terrorism, the suck, assassinating their only real competition, the real left, the evolution), and the devolutionary direction dictating the permanently altered weather cycles, 100 year storms happening every ten, 10,000 year cataclysmic events happening every thousand, 100,000 year destroying all life events, like alteration of magnetic poles location, their reversal, degradation of the earth’s orbit around the sun, happening every ten thousand, etc., and being most alive! Stop the gov’t historical use of the HAARP and other weather machines for political purposes, drilling Cuba with hurricanes, for example, Obama’s Admin. using them to decrease the amount of natural disasters, etc., to mitigate the influence of environmentalism, the evolution and the real left, to alter legislation, win elections; has further permanently altered the natural weather cycles and made global warming exponentially worse in a few years- denaturing the earth is the extinction of humanity and large mammals in a process.  Don't be republicated into mirror supremacist images of the white supremacy, being woman, black, supposed christian, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Jewish, Asian, Atheist, male, heterosexual, LGBTQ, age, etc., supremacists isn't equality, there's no equality of nazism; destruction to extinction aren't profit, pleasure, nor power- Audre Lourdes said, "you can't take apart the man's house with the man's tools.”.  The premeditated mass-murder of 8 billion people isn’t allowable, opinion, freedom of religion, choice, civil liberty, a right, equality, American dreaming or way of life, nor cool. The dreamers must awaken, unlike the Dino-In-Chief’s response to the tea partiers, which is tripartisanship, centrism, caving, the real left’s is fku+theshtthatshatu, as it should be; thank goodness! Don't alter your humanity with, hormone treatments, steroids, human growth hormone, blood transfusions and swapping, like 70 % of athletes, destroying the realization of your potential while making you physiologically like a machine, etc..  They can’t sociologically program somas of illimitable potential, that are indivisible, as life is, in order to republicate automatons for la machine, if you, don‘t agree, resist, refuse, be more so.  Cult of personalityism=popularityism=vampirism=centrism=materialism=machiavellianism=cannibalism=extremism=supremacy=fascism=extermination=nazism=extinction.  Thanx.  Goodbye.

Newest Healthcare Reform Acts

AAUW Action Network: An Attack on Reproductive Health Care: New Domestic Gag Rule  
On Saturday night, the House passed the largest health care overhaul bill in 40 years.  Many of AAUW's key priorities were included in the Affordable Health Care for America Act (H.R. 3962), including coverage for maternity care, preventive care, an end to gender rating, and other protections for women.  It's a victory for millions of Americans who are one step closer to quality, affordable health care.
Unfortunately, this victory came at a price that is outrageous and unacceptable.  Anti-choice representatives also passed an amendment to the bill that will severely undermine women's access to complete and safe reproductive health care services.  The amendment, offered by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI), will eliminate coverage for abortion services in the public option.  Current law already bans the use of federal dollars to pay for abortion, but this amendment goes further by prohibiting women who receive federal subsidies from purchasing a comprehensive insurance plan that includes abortion services.
Private plans that offer abortion coverage would be banned from receiving funding. This type of restriction would force private insurance companies to choose between eliminating abortion coverage for all insured members and being eligible to serve patients by receiving federal subsidies. As a result, millions of women who have this coverage now would lose it, effectively ending coverage for abortion services and instituting what amounts to a domestic gag rule.  Women who could afford it could pay extra for a "rider" policy to cover such services, but the very nature of unplanned pregnancies makes this an illogical and impractical notion.
AAUW has long advocated for choice in the determination of one's reproductive life and increased access to health care and family planning services.  There's no doubt that health care reform is desperately needed, but it should not come on the backs of women.  A fundamental principle of health care has always been to "do no harm."  Make no mistake; the Stupak amendment does just that--leaving millions of women worse off than they were before.   This is the biggest attempt to ban abortion services in years, and a similar amendment is already in the works in the Senate. 

Take Action: Contact your senators today and urge them to oppose any amendments that jeopardize women's access to complete reproductive health care coverage.  Then, take another minute to contact your representative about his or her vote on the Stupak amendment       




Center for Reproductive Rights: TAKE ACTION: The Fight is Not Over Yet  

Saturday's House vote was a terrible blow for women's health and rights -- but the fight is not over yet.

The Pro-Choice Caucus has crafted a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vowing to oppose a healthcare bill that restricts a woman's right to choose any further than current law.

Tell your Members of Congress to sign the letter and show their support for American women!


Planned Parenthood Action: A painful blow to women's health care  

While there are some who are satisfied with the health care reform bill that passed in the House of Representatives late Saturday night, I am not one of them.

When it came down to it, Congress passed a bill that will undercut women's access to comprehensive health care. Despite hundreds of thousands of voters like you and me who called on members of Congress to include women's health care in health care reform, the bill that passed Saturday night includes a ban on private abortion coverage for millions of women and would prohibit it in the new "public option."

Opponents of legal abortion and health care for women are emboldened by Saturday night's vote and ready to bring their ban on abortion to the Senate floor. But now it's our turn. And this time we are going to use our strongest weapon: the White House.

That's why, today, we are calling on President Obama

to ensure that lawmakers, especially those in his own party, support health care reform that protects women's access to reproductive care as the next round of debate and voting occurs in the Senate.


Mobilization for Health Care for All  
Two Health Care Advocates Remain in Jail, Take Action To Support their Cause Now  
Yesterday morning, Mobilization for Health Care for All made another urgent demand to get insurance money out of our democracy so that real reform will not be blocked in America. It is unacceptable that 45,000 Americans dies every year because of lack of access to health care.

Nine advocates for Medicare for All were arrested in a patients not profits sit-in in Senator Joseph Lieberman's office. Lieberman, known as the Senator for Aetna - his number 9 largest contributor, has taken $2.6 million in the last decade from the health sector including the insurance and pharmaceutical industries.

Two advocates remain in jail refusing to cooperate by not providing identification. Kai Newkirk, national coordinator of the Mobilization, is fasting and is in the DC jail, along with John Morhbacher of Connecticut.

Their demand is clear - publicly pledge to stop taking money from the insurance industry. Join their demand by clicking here

to sign a petition to Sen. Lieberman.

When Kevin Zeese, Esq. director of ProsperityAgenda.US met with our colleagues in the cell block, Morhbacker, a member of the Army Reserve in Connecticut, described his senator "as an example of the obstructionists who prevent consideration of Medicare for All."

2. Make a donation

to support the Mobilization. Donate for bail money and jail support for those arrested in Lieberman's office.

3. Call Lieberman and tell him to stop taking insurance money. His numbers are: (202) 224-4041and (860) 549-8463.


Public Option Please: Fight PHARMA profit protections  

The health care bill in the House of Representatives has a death sentence for patients with AIDS, breast cancer, and other serious illnesses.

Members of Congress owned by PhRMA - the lobbying arm of the pharmaceutical industry - pushed for a dangerous provision about "biologics" drugs that will make it virtually impossible for patients to have access to affordable medication.

We can't fix it before the House passes its bill this weekend, but we can make sure it's fixed in the Senate bill.

Sign our petition to key Senators now: make generic drugs available for patients and stop protecting the pharmaceutical industry's profits.

PEN: DIRECT Fax Action To Congress: Pass Medicare For All (Weiner Amendment), Or
Don't Fool Either Yourself Or Us [152447]  

This one will add your signature (and any personal comments of your
own) to a fax petition with the heading, "Pass Medicare For All Or
Pass Nothing", and send it to each of your individual members of

Fax Action On Medicare for All

The fact is that from the moment early on that Max Baucus manipulated
the hearings in his Senate committee to keep any spokesperson for
single payer from even having a voice at the table, the entire
congressional process has been rigged to keep any meaningful reform

Subject: OR is first state in nation to have NO ICF/MRs

Dear Friends,

As of the close of business yesterday, Oregon is the first state in the nation
to have

NO ICFs/Mr.  This includes public and community facilities, as well as no

citizens residing in ICFs/MR in other states. Oregon is now operating 100%
under the

community waiver.

Before yesterday, the only other state operating with no public or private
ICFMRs was

Alaska, and while it is true that Alaska no in-state ICFMRs, the state

has about 10 people in out-of-state ICFMRs.

So CONGRATULATIONS! to Oregon, and here's hoping they serve as a role model
for the rest of us!


Fw: CFC Good News! We're making Progress  
Hey ADAPT & Community Choice Supporters!
> Your hard work is paying off once again.  As you know the Community First Choice Option (CFC) is in the Senate health reform bill.
> I just received word from Congressman Danny Davis' office that CFC has been included in the House health bill
>   as a "Sense of Congress" (see attached).  What does this mean?
> A Sense of Congress is not legislation, itself.  It does express the desire and support of Congress to have the language become law eventually. What this means is that the House is sending a message that when the Senate and the House conference the final bills, the House wants the CFC legislative language in the Senate bill to remain in the final bill that passes into law.  The reason for doing the Sense of Congress instead of actual legislative language is so their aggressive timetable can be kept; so they won't have to score the whole bill again.  The House is supposed to finish their health bill work this week and not break until they do. Ours is the ONLY Sense of Congress in the health bill and word is, no other amendments will be allowed.  Rep. Danny Davis was very vocal in support and Chairman Rangle, Waxman and Miller were all supportive of getting it in.
> Quite an accomplishment!  Great work ADAPT & Community Choice Supporters.
You're the best! Stay tuned for next steps we need to take in the next couple of days.

NATIONAL ADAPT MAILING LIST - Adapt Community Choice Act List


NALU + FCNL Acts: Take Action: Support Indian Health Care; etc..  

Health Care: On to the Senate

On Saturday, the House passed legislation that, in our analysis, would provide access to affordable, comprehensive health care for the majority of people in this country and improve health care for Native Americans:

House: Maintain the momentum by asking the Senate to pass legislation that also meets these criteria:


Take Action: Support Indian Health Care  

Health care for Native Americans could soon dramatically improve. The House has included the Indian Health Care Improvement Act as part of its health insurance reform bill (H.R. 3962). This legislation would provide services long available to the rest of the country to American Indians and Alaska Natives, including mental health services, long term care, and hospice. It would also improve access to care. Ask your representative to support Indian health and the House health insurance reform bill:

On October 20, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce's Health Subcommittee held a hearing on the reauthorization of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (IHCIA, H.R. 2708). For more information, see


Good news!  The Indian Health Care Improvement Act has been included in the "big" health care reform bill in the House (H.R. 3962), and may also be included in the Senate bill. Acts: Stupak; etc.. 

When the House of Representatives passed health care reform late Saturday night, there was a new, last-minute addition.

Conservative Rep. Bart Stupak's (D-MI) amendment would severely limit a woman's right to choose. In fact, his restrictions are far more severe than Republicans were ever able to pass during the Bush presidency.

Now 40 Democratic congresswomen have written an open letter demanding that these restrictions be taken out of the final bill.

Can you join these women leaders and sign on, too? Click here.


We teamed up with Democracy for America to debunk that conventional wisdom -- commissioning our own polls in the states of Sens. Ben Nelson (D-NE), Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), and Evan Bayh (D-IN).

And guess what? Voters consistently want the public option! Rachel Maddow covered our polls on her MSNBC show this week.

There are no excuses left for Democratic senators to oppose reform. Can you sign our petition telling them so?


Stop Stupac the Amendment, or any version of it.  As well, no trigger, because triggers don't get pulled.  Also, please, advocate for singlepayer healthcare, with Community First Choice Option and CLASS Act (Community Choice Act for the handicapped, elderly, autistic, disabled, etc.); H.R. 676 & S. 703, are the best of the lot, so far.

support women's healthcare now
