HEY MODERATES, LIBERALS, Green Party THINKERS, WOMEN the largest voting body in AMERICA and all other sensible voters think about change and support the brand new leadership PAC, Courage to Change.

Recommended Posts

Hey  donate to AOC’s brand new leadership PAC, Courage to Change. We do hope you’ll give us a chance to explain what led us to this moment.

 

Last week, Alexandria mentioned that we would not be paying the $250,000  in “dues” that the DCCC is demanding from us.

 

We’ve been criticized for this, but we choose not to support an arm of the party that has a policy of blacklisting progressive candidates while favoring pro-Trump and anti-choice ones.

 

Now, we’re launching Courage to Change. We’ll be raising money to directly support progressive red-to-blue seats, bold incumbents, and newcomers to Congress alike. But we need your help. We’re looking for Founding Donors to kick off this effort so we can support as many candidates as possible.

 

Can you make a contribution now? Your donations help us push the envelope in D.C. by rewarding those who reject lobbyist money, fight for working families, and welcome newcomers.

 

Very Smart .......

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude from Boston University College of Arts and Sciences with a BA in 2011, majoring in international relations and economics.

 

Just gotta love that AOC ....... among the all American women.

 

International Relations

 

In our fast-paced, increasingly interdependent world, the problems and policies of each nation have repercussions that are felt far beyond its borders.

 

Whether the issue is climatic change caused by carbon dioxide emissions or the rights of workers in factories owned by transnational corporations, decision makers in government and industry must now consider how their actions will affect people and places around the globe.

 

As an international relations major, you will draw from a variety of academic disciplines to gain a more complete picture of the issues and traditions that shape regions and nations.

 

Real World Outcomes: 

International relations majors are prepared to embark on exciting careers in many areas related to transnational issues and concerns.

 

Many have found employment with federal government agencies such as the Foreign Service, international or non-governmental organizations such as the United Nations or companies conducting business or finance operations internationally.

Bernard Sanders (born September 8, 1941) is an American politician who has served as the junior United States Senator from Vermont since 2007. Vermont's at-large Congressman from 1991 to 2007, he is the longest-serving independent in U.S. congressional history and a member of the Democratic caucus. Sanders ran unsuccessfully for the 2016 Democratic nomination for president and is running again in 2020.

 

A self-described "democratic socialist" and progressive, Sanders is known for his opposition to economic inequality. On domestic policy, he broadly supports labor rights, and has supported universaland single-payer healthcare, paid parental leave, tuition-free tertiary education, and an ambitious Green New Deal to create jobs addressing global warming. On foreign policy, he broadly supports reducing military spending, pursuing more diplomacy and international cooperation, and putting greater emphasis on labor rights and environmental concerns when negotiating international trade agreements.

 

Commentators have noted the strong influence that his views have had on Democratic Party politics since his 2016 presidential campaign.[2][3][4] Commentators variously describe his political philosophy as aligned with New Deal policies and with social democracy, but not with true socialism—the social ownership of the means of production. 

 

Sanders was born into a working-class Jewish family and raised in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. He attended Brooklyn College before graduating from the University of Chicago in 1964. While a student, he was an active protest organizer for the Congress of Racial Equality as well as for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee during the civil rights movement.

 

After settling in Vermont in 1968, he ran unsuccessful third-party political campaigns in the early to mid-1970s. As an independent, Sanders was elected mayor of Burlington in 1981 and reelected three times. He won election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1990, representing Vermont's at-large congressional district; he later co-founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Sanders served as a U.S. Representative for 16 years before being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006; he was reelected to the Senate in 2012 and 2018.

 

In April 2015, Sanders announced his campaign for the 2016 Democratic nomination for president of the United States. Despite initially low expectations, he went on to win 23 primaries and caucuses and approximately 43% of pledged delegates. 

 

His campaign was noted for its supporters' enthusiasm, as well as for his rejection of large donations from corporations, the financial industry, and any associated Super PAC.

 

In July 2016, he formally endorsed Clinton in her general election bid against Republican Donald Trump, while urging his supporters to continue the "political revolution" his campaign had begun.

 

In February 2019, Sanders announced a second presidential campaign, joining multiple other Democratic candidatespursuing the party nomination.

Elizabeth Ann Warren (née Herring; born June 22, 1949) is an American politician and former academic, serving as the senior United States Senator from Massachusetts since 2013. She was formerly a law school professor specializing in bankruptcy law.

 

A member of the Democratic Party and a progressive, Warren has focused on consumer protection, economic opportunity, and the social safety net while in the Senate.

 

Warren is a graduate of the University of Houston and Rutgers Law School and has taught law at several universities, including the University of Houston, the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Pennsylvania, and Harvard University. She was one of the most influential professors in the field of commercial law before beginning her political career. She has authored five and coauthored six books.

 

Warren's first foray into public policy began in 1995 when she worked to oppose what eventually became a 2005 act restricting bankruptcy access for individuals. Her national profile grew during the late 2000s following her forceful public stances in favor of more stringent banking regulations after the 2007–08 financial crisis.

 

She served as chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel of the Troubled Asset Relief Program and was instrumental in creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, of which she served as the first Special Advisor under President Obama.

 

In November 2012, Warren won the U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts, defeating incumbent Republican Scott Brown and becoming the first female Senator from Massachusetts.

 

She was assigned to the Senate Special Committee on Aging; the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee; and the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee. Warren won reelection by a wide margin in 2018, defeating Republican nominee Geoff Diehl. On February 9, 2019, at a rally in Lawrence, Massachusetts, Warren announced her candidacy in the 2020 United States presidential election.[2]

Here is what will happen, democrats and neo-cong republicans are not anything like Trump and they never keep any of their campaign promises. Bernie and other socialist make all kinds of far out promises about somehow making your life work out better with free goods and services however the money has already been blown on the other side of the world and they will be lucky to keep social security and other programs operational., they are simply lying.

 

As we can see in this video a Bernie campaign manager is talking about removing an individuals constitutional rights who are not working within their particular tribal class and group programing. When your group figures out that they are not keeping any of their promises and your group is living on mud pie-worms and begin to speak up about it they will also go off to camp or whatever.

Truck loads of tax cuts for the 1%,  truck loads of tax breaks for business, truckloads of crap like TIF's and big truck loads of all sorts of tax dollar subsidies for corporate welfare IS SOCIALISM YET THE RECEIVERS ARE NOT BITCHING ABOUT IT.

 

SINGLE PAYER MEDICAL INSURANCE will help all in America no matter one's level of wealth and will create a large number of new jobs which should be no surprise thus brings on more economic growth YET the vocal few do nothing but piss and moan.

"Conventional wisdom routinely fails to grasp the simmering anger that’s fueled by extreme income inequality,"  journalist Norman Solomon, co-founder and national coordinator of RootsAction.org and a Sanders delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention, told Salon by email. He was making what one could call the "populist wave" argument:

 

 More than mere fairness is at stake here. Donald Trump represents a grave danger to the United States and the world. His initiatives on global warming and immigration, his economic and foreignpolicies and his personal corruption are all existential threats to the survival of the free world, as well as severe moral crises for our country.
