Sanders Rips Bolton and Other Washington Hawks Who Push 'War and Militarism' as 'Answer to Everything'


Sanders Rips Bolton and Other Washington Hawks Who Push 'War and Militarism' as 'Answer to Everything'

Jake Johnson, staff writer

Appearing on CNN early Sunday just moments after President Donald Trump's national security adviser John Bolton urged European nations to join the U.S. in violating the Iran nuclear accord, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) denounced Bolton as part of the influential group of Washington ultra-hawks who think war "is the answer to everything."


I would change this narrative to: we have spent over $2 trillion to support the war profiteers bogus wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.


I Love You, Mommy!

The time is coming fast when Bernie Sanders must decide if he will continue to serve as punching-bag and lap-dog for DINO machine politics or become more…he is an activist, teacher, and inspiration for millions as seen clearly in 2016 by all except the corrupt DP establishment Clintons/Obama/DLC wing sellout whores! The DP does not inspire, does not serve the 99%, does not confront the mental extremist trump regime OR Israel as should be! Really strong environmental protections, and much else must be fought for and they will not. Serving corporate/banker/wall street greed ad usury, and big money donors is not leadership it is complicity!

A leader of great courage, moral compass and dedication, with national recognition respect and commitment is needed…look to the example of Ray McGovern as inspiration for us all! Ray has dedicated himself for many years to the fight against fascist opporession! Will you respond Bernie?

That all sounds great. Good luck.


“We have spent over $2 trillion in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and yet today our infrastructure here in the United States is crumbling, we have millions of people who can’t afford to go to college or are leaving college deeply in debt. Maybe, just maybe, we might want to be investing in the American people rather than inflated military budgets and more and more wars.”

$2 trillion?? Try $21trillion!


I’m sure that Schumer and Pelosi and Biden will come out immediately in support of Bernie’s remarks.


Every outrageous action of Trump is designed to distract us from the real issues of the day such as climate change and his feathering of his own nest and ego.

Bernie Sanders is probably the only Democrat/Independent who could beat Donald Trump in 2020.
What will the Democratic (sic) Party do?
Run the milk toast Joe Biden or other apologist and get whipped again.
And we will be stuck with Trump for another four years.That is if the country and planet even survive the next 2.5 years of Trump insanity.


Total bullshit only believed by idiots.

From a Common Dreams article: https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/04/20/recognizing-working-class-pain-doesnt-make-cnn-sanders-and-rev-barber-call-building


Carl Sagan wrote this quote many years ago for the PBS Cosmos TV series. It was inspired by a photo taken by an exploring spacecraft that turned back and took a photo of Earth from out in the solar system. To me, it puts the horror of all of this in perspective:

"“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot…"
