Hello Iowa. Here is a message of Bernie Sanders. I approve this message.

Hopefully and wishfully you do so.

I’m Elise. Your admin. A convinced Bernie’s Political Revolution Supporter, which resonates with everything I beleive in, strong and deep from the bottom of my heart to the top of my rationality. It starts with Justice and the protection of Life, whether animal, vegetal or human. It ends with Freedom and Liberty for every human being on Earth.



Sisters and Brothers – Friends

When we first launched our campaign, the polls in Iowa showed us down 55 points against Hillary Clinton. The political media dismissed us. They said our “radical ideas” would never attract much support against an « inevitable candidate. »

But together we’ve built a campaign on the verge of accomplishing what everyone told us was impossible. The Iowa caucus takes place next Monday and the polls have us neck and neck.

The Clinton campaign is pouring in resources. Their Super PAC is launching attacks literally almost daily. Even so we have the largest grassroots organization of any campaign. So I have to ask directly:

Can I count on you to make a $10 contribution to our campaign today? You can do that here:  https://go.berniesanders.com/win-Iowa

This moment requires us to think differently about our challenges. The same old establishment ideas won’t do. But charting a new course will require the active participation of millions of Americans in every community in our country. And I know that if we stand together today, we will win.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders



Plus.  » Sen. Bernie Sanders drew distinctions between his policies and Hillary Clinton’s during CNN’s Democratic town hall. He pointed to his positions against the war in Iraq, in favor of Wall Street reforms, against the Keystone XL pipeline and against a trade deal with China — areas where she has come around to his way of thinking.

Sanders said at the Iowa event that his « Medicare for all » plan would lead to higher taxes. « We will raise taxes. Yes, we will, » Sanders said, arguing it would be worth the tradeoff given what American families would save on premiums.

Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley are making their closing arguments in a town hall airing now on CNN, just a week before the Iowa caucuses ». (CNN)

Another plus.

Six Cleveland police officers have been fired in connection with a 20-mile car chase in 2012 that ended with officers firing 137 bullets at a car, killing Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, said Steve Loomis, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association.

He identified the officers as Wilfredo Diaz, Brian Sabolik, Erin O’Donnell, Michael Farley, Chris Ereg and Michael Brelo. Brelo allegedly fired 49 of the shots, including 15 from the hood of the car carrying Russell and Williams. Brelo was acquitted of manslaughter last year.

Plus again for Apple twist.

« Apple announced profits of $18.4 billion in the final quarter of 2015, the most profitable quarter in U.S. history. Yet it apparently has reached the end of its era of unprecedented growth.

IPhone sales rose last quarter, as did profits and sales. Sales in China were also strong. Even though Apple managed to beat its record quarter from a year earlier, Apple said that it believes sales in the current quarter will fall for the first time in 13 years ».

⇒The closing argument is related to the inevitable pending two-states solution.  Read the latest on the topic to quench your thirst, if possible. Israel PM says UN’s Ban ‘encouraging terror’.

>Excerpt. « Earlier, Ban told the UN Security Council of the « profound sense of alienation and despair driving some Palestinians -– especially young people » in the upsurge of attacks on Israelis since the start of October ».

« Palestinian frustration is growing under the weight of a half century of occupation and the paralysis of the peace process, » he said.

« As oppressed peoples have demonstrated throughout the ages, it is human nature to react to occupation, which often serves as a potent incubator of hate and extremism. »

« Continued settlement activities are an affront to the Palestinian people and to the international community, » he said.
