Resolution to recognize Liberty Caucus

Resolution to recognize the value and importance for a Liberty Caucus / Standing Committee; amend by laws to read Caucus may be ‘explicitly ideological’:

Mission: is to hold government and corporations and equity funds accountable, demand transparency in all proceedings and deliberations, and support whistle blower protections with immunity from prosecution.

Within the Green Party Platform and within basic values, we hold Grass roots democracy as a main objective, and we recognize that a healthy republic requires these measures: accountability, transparency and whistle blower protections; for without oversight, malfeasance will be conducted with impunity and possibilities for democracy will fade.

Green principles of non-violence impel Greens to call out malfeasance that harms the common weal; we recognize the problem of the military industrial complex, and that without vigilant monitoring of policy and practice, there will not accountability, and without transparency democracy will die in secrecy; and without Whistle Blowers, we the people would know very little of the truth about the national security state.

There cannot be justice without accountability. Whistle blowers protect democracy and empower we the people with truth about government and plutocratic over reach.

We resolve to recognize the value for a caucus that would be vigilant about engaging in issues and concerns raised in the GP US platform: see sections of the platform that speak to areas of concern that require monitoring and vigilant media attention to protect our country and maintain the struggle to advance the good.

A Liberty Caucus resolution establishes that the National Committee recognizes that such a Caucus would be good for the Party and could help in recruitment based on a value for government accountability. The National Committee is requested to create a Liberty Caucus Steering Committee that would work at the National level to assist the National Committee.

Grounds for creating Liberty Caucus: see the platform positions and pillar for non-violence.


From Pacific Green Party of Oregon: in our platform under Non-Violence pillar , sub War and Foreign Policy plank we say: We will work to dismantle the US war machine, including both the military-industrial complex and the global hegemony it expands…End mass surveillance and manipulation of public opinion by intelligence agencies, and repeal laws which facilitate this, in particular the USA Patriot Act. We will abolish the CIA and NSA.” A Liberty Caucus will support actualizing these elements in the Oregon Green Party Platform.

Below are passages in bold face from the GP US Platform that a Liberty Caucus could be tasked with taking action to advance especially that involving corruption and other malfeasance that works against social justice and the potential for grass roots democracy to be developed. Especially applicable for a Liberty Caucus are issues raised under Domestic Security.

A. Political Reform
OUR POSITION
Greens will crack down on political corruption and strengthen the voice of the people at all levels of government.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to influence the governmental decisions that affect them. But the defining characteristics of modern politics in the United States are a corrupt campaign finance system that enables corporate and wealthy elites to purchase political outcomes; and an abundance of anti-democratic electoral, ballot access and debate rules designed to minimize participation and choice.


To achieve genuine citizen participation, citizens must share in the power of governing. Greens seek to bring vibrant grassroots democracy to every part of the United States.
GREEN SOLUTIONS

  1. Electoral reform.
    Enact proportional representation voting systems for
  2. Reducing corruption

Develop publicly-owned, open source voting equipment and deploy it across the nation to ensure high national standards, performance, transparency and accountability; use verifiable paper ballots; and institute mandatory automatic random precinct recounts to ensure a high level of accuracy in election results. 


Establish guarantees that every citizen’s vote counts, and that all U.S. voting systems—including electronic ones—are verifiable, transparent and accurate.


Establish a National Elections Commission with the mandate to establish minimum national election standards and uniformity, partner with state and local election officials to ensure pre-election and post-election accountability for their election plans, require nonpartisan election boards, and depoliticize and professionalize election administration across the United States.


Establish independent and transparent non-partisan redistricting processes to stop partisan gerrymandering and protect minority rights and representation.

D. Foreign Policy
Foreign Policy—Peace and Disarmament

a. Our government does not have any moral or legal right, or any justification, to preemptively attack another nation. The only legitimate use of military force is to repel an actual attack on our nation. We demand that our government adhere to international law, including the Kellogg-Briand Pact, Nuremberg Charter and United Nations Charter, which prohibit any and all preemptive wars or first strikes with any and all weaponry, nuclear and non-nuclear.

We demand repeal – not amendment — of the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) passed by Congress in response to the attacks of September 11, 2001, and oppose any other measure purporting to ‘authorize’ preemptive or illegal military action. In passing the AUMF, Congress abdicated its exclusive authority under the Constitution to declare war. It further violated the Constitution and betrayed its responsibility to the American people by delegating to the president – one person – virtually dictatorial power to commit acts of war whenever he or she chooses. The ‘system of checks and balances’ has been replaced by Congress just signing the ‘checks’ to pay for war. The AUMF has been used to justify U.S. military actions in Afghanistan, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Georgia, Iraq, Kenya, Libya, Pakistan, the Philippines, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. Numerous studies have shown that the ‘War on Terror’ has created an ever-increasing number of terrorists, destabilized the Middle East and beyond, and created massive death and destruction. It serves to maintain the US in a state of perpetual war.

b. The U.S. has over 700 foreign military bases. We urge our government to phase out all bases not specifically functioning under a U.N. resolution to keep peace and bring home our troops stationed abroad, except for the military assigned to protect a U.S. embassy. Many of these bases are small and can be closed immediately. We advocate further reductions in U.S. foreign military bases at a rate of closure of 1/4 to 1/5 of their numbers every year.
c. Close the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, formerly known as the School of the Americas, in Ft. Benning, Georgia.
d. The U.S. is the largest arms seller and dealer in the world. We urge our government to prohibit all arms sales to foreign nations and likewise prohibit grants to impoverished and undemocratic nations unless the money is targeted on domestic, non-military needs. In addition, grants to other nations may not be used to release their own funds for military purposes.
e. The U.S. must not be a conduit for defense contractors to market their products abroad and must shift our export market from arms to peaceful technology, industrial and agricultural products, and education.
f. The U.S. must prohibit all covert actions used to influence, de-stabilize or usurp the governments of other nations, and likewise prohibit the assassination of, or assistance in any form for the assassination of, foreign government officials.

We must build on the Earth Charter that came out of the 1992 U.N. environmental Earth Summit. New definitions of what constitutes real security between nations must be debated and adopted by the foreign policy community.

  1. A Real Road to Peace in the Middle East
    The Green Party of the United States recognizes that our greatest contribution to peace in the Middle East will come through our impact on U.S. policy in the region.
    Our commitments to ecological wisdom, social justice, grass-roots democracy, and non-violence compel us to oppose U.S. government support for “friendly” regimes in the region when those regimes violate human rights, international law, and existing treaties. We call on congressional intelligence committees to conduct comprehensive public hearings on the development and deployment of weapons of mass destruction by all states in the region.
    U.S. policy should support the removal and/or destruction of all such weapons wherever they are found there.

  2. E. Domestic Security
    Greens want to stop the assault on our civil liberties that intensified after the attacks of September 11, 2001, and restore these and other freedoms to all people.

  3. During the last several decades, there has been an erosion of freedom in the United States. This has come from many sources and takes many forms, including the war on drugs and widespread imprisonment of nonviolent drug offenders; the increased use of personal identification, surveillance of employees at work, and the growing use of private security forces by corporations; restrictions on the speech of protesters and students; and random traffic stops of persons of color and the commonplace use of roadblocks.

  4. Since 9/11, this erosion has turned into a collapse of our freedoms, as then President Bush authorized torture, illegal wiretapping, indefinite detention without trial, and widespread government surveillance.

  5. Greens believe that all such systematic degradation or elimination of our constitutional protections must stop, and that corrective measures need to be taken in a timely manner by Congress to fully reinstate all such losses of guaranteed citizen protections.

  6. Immediately address environmental degradation in all forms. Environmental degradation poses extremely pressing concerns to both domestic and international security, amongst other things. An increasing frequency / intensity of extreme weather events as a whole are stressing global food, water, financial, security, energy, transportation, emigration/immigration, and other systems – pitting the self-interests of normally peaceful nations against each other. See chapter III for more detail.

  7. The Green Party calls for a complete, thorough, impartial, and independent investigation of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, including the role of the administration of George W, Bush, various U.S. based corporations and interests, and other nations and third parties.

  8. We call for the repeal of the USA PATRIOT Act. Many of its provisions, along with many of the other so-called National Security Acts, undermine and erode our Bill of Rights, and contribute to the destruction of the democratic foundation of checks and balances between the branches of government.

  9. Strictly enforce our First Amendment rights of speech, assembly, association and petition. Federal, state and local governments must safeguard our right to public, non-violent protest. It is intolerable that law enforcement agencies intimidate lawful protesters with brutality, surveillance, repression and retaliation.

  10. End torture, such as in prisons like Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay and other U.S.-controlled facilities. Ensure those guilty of ordering or executing torture are held accountable for violations U.S. and international law.

  11. Restore habeas corpus, a legal action to obtain relief from illegal detention. End the use of indefinite detention without trial.

  12. Revoke the 2011 re-authorization of the Patriot Act, including “John Doe” roving wiretaps and the “library records” provision.

  13. End the abuse of National Security Letters, which the FBI uses to force Internet service providers, libraries, banks, and credit reporting companies to reveal sensitive information about their patrons.

  14. End illegal government spying, including the use of warrantless wiretaps. Three federal judges have ruled that President Bush’s National Security Agency warrantless wiretaps violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which contains criminal sanctions. Ensure that anyone who violated the FISA is held accountable for crimes committed.

  15. Enact a constitutional amendment affirming that the rights outlined in our Bill of Rights are human rights and do not apply in any way to corporations.

  16. Support U.S. constitutional guarantees for freedom of religion, separation of church and state, and that there shall be no religious test for public office. Eliminate federal, state, and local laws that discriminate against particular religious beliefs or non-belief. End faith-based initiatives and charitable choice programs, whereby public funds are used to support religious organizations that may not adhere to specified guidelines and standards, including anti-discrimination laws.

  17. Oppose the death penalty in the United States and worldwide.

  18. Support students’ constitutional rights to free speech.

  19. Ensure that government actions towards immigrants comply with our Constitution and universal human rights principles.

Criminal Justice: 5. Police Accountability
Due to current conditions when it comes to policing the cities and people, police officers are the 6th leading cause of death for young men in America. More commonly, the greatest lives that are at stake are those of our black, brown, LGBTQIA?+ and disabled, including those with mental health issues when it comes to crimes against persons at the hands of the police. In accordance we recommend the following actions:
Police Require all police officers to carry professional liability insurance as a requirement to working on the police force.


That the insurance will act as a mechanism by which we can have officers with histories of brutality and misconduct removed from duty, thereby keeping that person from committing crimes under the protection of the police department; this functions through the insurance company, which will increase premiums and eventually determine that rogue officers are uninsurable.


Serve as a deterrent to officers taking actions that could result in a complaint against them, as this could cause a premium increase for the officer.
Prevent the taxpayer from having to foot the bill for police brutality cases, which cost taxpayers millions of dollars.


Establish a national database to record excessive force complaints, to be used in hiring decisions of police officers.

L. Advanced Technology and Defense Conversion
The Green Party supports defense technology transfer towards a peacetime technology-based economy, particularly new industrial applications and developments in the areas of advanced communications, alternative energy, non-toxic battery technology and waste management.


Consolidation of the nuclear weapons complex should move toward alternative civilian technologies and non-proliferation work, not toward a new generation of nuclear weapon design and production.


We recognize the need for de-escalating the continuing arms race,
and we strongly oppose putting nuclear weapons, lasers and other weapons in space in a new militarization policy that is in clear violation of international law. [See section F. Demilitarization and Exploration of Space in chapter I]


Let us go forward with government and civilian space programs; research initiatives in sustainability science, environmental protection, ecological economics and transportation, appropriate technologies and technology transfer; environmental sampling and monitoring; systems testing; laser communications; and high speed computers.


Let us devote a larger percentage of our nation’s research and development budget, both private and public, toward civilian use and away from military use. Let us address our chronic trade imbalance in this fashion—not by increasing exports of military weapons and technologies.


The Green Party opposes patenting or copyrighting life forms, algorithms, DNA, colors or commonly used words and phrases. We support broad interpretation and ultimate expansion of the Fair Use of copyrighted works. We support open source and copyleft models in order to promote the public interest and the spirit of copyright.


We call for a federal Technology Assessment Office to examine how technology fits with life on Earth, with our neighborhoods, and with the quality of our daily lives.

Telecommunications Advanced telecommunications technologies (many of which came originally from defense applications), such as fiber optics, broadband infrastructure, the Internet, and the World Wide Web hold great promise for education, decentralized economies, and local control of decision- making. We believe we must move toward decentralization in these efforts, carefully protecting our individual rights as we go forward.


Advanced and high definition TV, digital communications, and wireless communications hold promise and challenge. For example, the public airwaves that will accommodate the new generation of telecommunications technology should not be free giveaways to media giants. An auction and built-in requirements that attach licenses to act in the public interest is needed. Technology provides tools: we must use these tools appropriately and ethically. [See section J. Free Speech and Media Reform in chapter II]


Broadband Internet access should be open to bidding, not simply the current choice between cable or telephone company monopolies, where grassroots Internet service providers must merge or go out of business. Broad- band access should be a taxpayer-funded utility, like water and sewer, ending the “digital divide” that keeps low-income folks from access to the Internet.

The Internet is a commons, developed with public funds, and must insure freedom and equality of access. The Green Party opposes Internet access tiered service controlled by an Internet service provider (ISP), with independent (not housed with the ISP) most costly and inaccessible. ISPs and advertisers should not be gate- keepers.The Green Party calls for increased protection for user privacy and for accountability on the part of ISPs.Open-Source SoftwareOpen-source software is necessary to achieve personal, cultural, and organizational security in the face of technological threats brought by corporations and individual criminals.

Government has a vital role in breaking up software monopolies, not so much by filing antitrust suits, but by buying nothing but open systems. The U.S. Government and the larger states are buyers large enough to influence the computer and software systems through their purchasing. It should be illegal for a government agency to create and store information vital to its operations in a format it doesn’t control. Governments should always consider storing information with open-source software and in-house staff instead of only commercial systems, vendors and software. One way to achieve this would be to add a virtual bid for in-house open source deployment whenever a software purchase goes out for bid.


The Green Party supports protection of software (free or proprietary) by means of the copyright. We strongly oppose granting of software patents. Mathematical algorithms are discovered, not invented, by humans; therefore, they are not patentable. The overwhelming majority of software patents cover algorithms, and should never have been awarded, or they cover message formats of some kind, which are essentially arbitrary. Format patents only exist to restrain competition, and the harm falls disproportionately on programmers who work independently or for the smallest employers.

NanotechnologyNanotechnology—the science of manipulating matter at the molecular level—is poised to provide a new industrial revolution with vast social and environmental consequences. Like nuclear science and biotechnology, nanotechnology is being pursued largely outside of public debate, risking great harm and abuse in its use and application.

The Green Party calls for a halt to nanotechnology development until the following conditions are met:

Development of full and open public debate about the implications of nanotechnology and the fusion of nanotech with biological, materials and information sciences.

Development of democratic public control mechanisms to regulate the direction of nanotechnology research and development.

Expanded research into the environmental and health consequences of exposure to nano-scale materials.

Development of technology to contain and monitor nano-scale materials.

Development of precautionary safety measures for the containment and control over nano-scale materials.

Greens declare ecological and social emergency; launch 2024 presidential run!

Green Progressive News
*this post is aspirational, hopeful that GP US media would promote media, and adopt a long term campaign along the lines posted below.

The Green Party US rallied behind a declaration of ecological and social emergency after two heat domes settled over the North West and Western U.S. On the Canadian coastline, over a Billion sea creatures perished under the searing heat. In California, prime growing regions may fall a similar fate; after a point, unbearable heat makes life impossible.

The Declaration notes that the heat domes are proof beyond any doubt that global warming caused by profligate use of fossil fuels has led to our tragic fate of ecology out of balance.

Why is it that the United States leadership within government and within the industrial corporate elite has not done anything to stop global warming? The Oil Giant, Exxon / Mobile knew as far back as 1972 that over use of fossil fuels would heat up the planet with green house gases including carbon dioxide?

Furthermore, James Hansen, a Goddard Laboratory scientist, paid through US research funding, provided irrefutable evidence of the problem of fossil fuel effluence and the danger of global warming.

But his report was shut down. The Hansen study was shelved and denied a fair hearing; environmental hatchet-man, John Sununu, while in the service of President Bush, Sr., did the deed. To this day there have no national legislation to limit the use of fossil fuels.

The failure to address the problem of excessive carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, has enabled Big Oil has to operate with relative impunity, without accountability, and so there are no limits in sight to change the course of industrial civilization.

The Greens have chosen an apt moment to take a stand with a declaration of ecological emergency; by doing so Greens claim the mantle of responsible stewardship of the earth. The obvious failure of elected and non-elected leadership to stand up for the ‘general welfare,’ as prescribed by the Constitution, demands Greens to step in and fill the void; an amoral leadership with a moral leadership.

As a complement to the Declaration of Emergency, Green Party US intends to advance a full throttle campaign for the Presidency in 2024, with a Shadow Cabinet to amplify the message for a Green society.

A Declaration of Emergency, enhanced with a multi-year electoral campaign, will turbo charge Green efforts to get on the ballot in states that don’t have ballot access, and it will energize, every state in the union to push a Green political agenda.

An early Presidential / Shadow Cabinet campaign will energize the 2022 election season and provide Greens a common message: that the elites have failed the nation, only Greens not financially tied to Corporations and Equity funds and other wealthy donors, can provide the free hand to make chan. Greens are untethered to corporate campaign finance, so they are free to follow our values and goals for ecologically and socially just conditions.

It is beyond the scope of this brief call-to-action to enumerate the steps that need to be taken to address global warming and secure social justice, but one thing is certain, removing carbon dioxide through regenerative farming, tree planting, sea based agriculture, and even industrial scale Carbon Dioxide sequestration must be made a priority while simultaneously reducing use of fossil fuels.

Any down playing of the eco-emergency, and claim that we cannot afford to address the is laughable given how under the Covid “pandemic” the United States government has provided well over $4 Trillion in value to hold the economy together and finance the vaccine rollout.

Money is not the problem; asserting the will to change is the problem, and the elites have spoken with the heat dome; they are not going to act; they are going to hold onto possibilities for making profit; as a result, they have shown they are committed to acting in the public interest.

Now is the time for Greens to make the call and step into the void and lead. Declare an emergency and fight like hell to save what we can.

Greens Declare ecological and social emergency: global warming is real; time to start the 2024 presidential run.

Ecological Wisdom informs this call to declare a global ecological and social emergency.

Declaration of Emergency: Greens declare that the heat domes over the western United States and Canada are incontrovertible evidence that human caused global warming is real and is destroying the earth’s natural ecology and threatens human communities’ capacity to survive. The danger of loss of arable land, loss of natural water supplies, and the general upending of ‘normal’ weather patterns, makes global warming denialism a sick joke. But, it also shows that the current leadership has not only failed but been willfully negligent in allowing development of global warming to occur.

The dangers of unbridled use of Fossil Fuels has been known for a long time; Exxon / Mobile knew as far back as 1970’s that the over use of fossil fuels would generate carbon dioxide waste and that this would heat up the planet with green house gases. The Exxon study was kept secret from the public, but would have been known by American national security agencies, who failed to act on behalf of the ‘general welfare,’ as prescribed in the constitution.

Furthermore, toward the end of 1980’s, James Hansen, a Goddard Laboratory scientist provided irrefutable evidence of the problem with over use of fossil fuels. He showed that it would increase green house gas and produce inevitable warming. But his study was shelved and denied a public hearing.

That Congress failed to exercise its constitutional oath to look out for the ‘general welfare,’ shows an abdication of duty; indeed, the failure to halt global warming is a dereliction of duty. Both political parties, Democrats and Republicans, are to blame for failing to curb the power and influence of the Petro-Chemical Industry, and its allies in the military industrial complex, and in the executive branches of government and in the halls of Congress.

In this Green Declaration of Emergency, Green Party US [state green party] is also [calls for ] launching [the Green Party ] its 2024 Presidential campaign even though a presidential champion may not not be nominated til June 2024.

We the people in the Green Movement will use the Declaration of Emergency as the backdrop for our claim that the Country and the International Community would be better served by Greens in power because we have a plan for changing society in our Key Values and Platform positions and other resolutions. We are future focused and know what will put human society in balance with nature.

The terrible fate of global warming caused by the willful misconduct of government and corporate leadership needs to be addressed by a Green Revolution.

In the course of this Declaration of Emergency, Greens further declare that we will launch a Shadow Cabinet, as a campaign support to the presidential run, to pose challenges to the duopoly power structure while simultaneously building ballot access in states across the country; the Green stand for justice and restoring earth’s ecology will empower our State Party leaders to engage with strong Senatorial Candidate nominees for Federal office. who will be necessary political support for the Green President.

Greens call for an electoral revolution and invite members of the Republican Party, Democratic Party, and unaffiliated voters to align with the Green Party and join us in fighting for the changes we needed to make 50 years ago, even a 100 years ago.

Join the Green Party; help get ballot access in your states; support the movement to secure the ‘general welfare’ by standing for a Declaration of Emergency that demands change Now!

Solving the problem of 150 years of industrialization will take a Herculean effort. So much effluence has decimated the the threads in the Web of Life that we are witnessing a Sixth Extinction event involving a vast loss of biological diversity. This must be addressed.

We are in a state of ecological emergency that requires a bold response. Humans are multiple billions strong; and in the spirit of ‘all hands on deck’ and acting on the famous credo, ‘from each according to his / her abilities, l to each according to his / her needs,’ we the people can take a stand and fight for what is right.

Greens call for solidarity around righting historic wrongs and correcting the over-reach of hubris and greed. Join the Green Movement.

If we put Ecology before economy we can restore the web of life, and all human societies win.
Revolution Now! Go For 2024!

Greens call for non-vaccine Covid Treatment options, investigations, end to corruption

From: Greens for Government Accountability
To:   GP US National Committee
 
Regarding: Request that GPUS National Committee issue a resolution about SARS Cov2 outbreak called Covid 19. We propose the following:

To Preface:

GP US stands on principles of ecological wisdom which inform our value for choice of medicine and natural means of sustaining a robust immune system; and GP US stands on principles of non-violence which holds that state power is subordinate to individual choice around matters personal and communal and should not coerce citizens into actions they find immoral or unwarranted or even unconstitutional; and GP US stands on social justice which informs our sensibility for equitable and just access to medical choice be it allopathic, naturopathic, homeopathic or other medical options that enable healing to occur. Finally, Green Party US values grass roots democracy, which if empowered would enable the collective wisdom of the people to inform the national decision making.

In the matter of the national response to alleged Covid 19 outbreak, We Greens for Gvernment Accountability call for the following policy provisions, and actions from the US Government:

Whereas, the government bungled the epidemiological response, evidenced by the number of fatalities associated with a virus, and the failure to contain the disease as was accomplished by Taiwan early in the outbreak on the island. Instead the government built up fear about the dangers of respiratory failure and the need for hospitals to stock up on ventilators, The government provided billions of dollars to Big Pharma to build out the PCR test, and to  jump start a mass vaccination program.

Whereas, based on the failure to advance alternative treatment protocols, it appears the Food and Drug Administration, the Center for Disease Control, the  National Institute for Allergy and Infection Diseases, and elements within the Executive Branch of the USA government, have all conspired with Big Pharma to force a new generation of experimental vaccines on an unsuspecting American Public, and not provide a non-vaccine alternative treatment.

Whereas, since January 2020, the response from the Federal government  to the alleged Covid outbreak has been focused mostly on financing the production of vaccines. There has been no effort to produce non-vaccine pharmacological protocols. This decision has deprived front line doctors with treatment protocols that could keep patients out of the hospital.

Whereas, the Covid 19 national response has has been conducted under a national security mandate, which enshrouds decision making behind a veil of secrecy that denies Congress, and the people, the capacity to conduct oversight.

Whereas, in the fog of a war against a virus, transparency is essential to protect the general welfare. However, Big Pharma received emergency use for vaccines, which some claim was done fraudulently by misrepresenting the Covid threat by inflating the number of cases through a faulty PCR test, set at an unduly high threshold cycle level, not warranted by the science.

Whereas, the Green Party US recognizes the inherent conflict of interest built into the private sector and public sector relationships within government agencies and business organizations, and through campaign financing of elected leaders. These conflicts of interest violats our value for social justice and grass roots democracy, and the history of malfeasance breeds distrust and skepticism within the general population and provides reasonable grounds for vaccine hesitancy.

Whereas, the national response to the Covid 19 outbreak has been conducted by a collection of government agencies, namely, the FDA, the CDC, the NIAID and others, which have reportedly corrupt ties to Big Pharma. A long list of corona virus patents speak to the history and financial interests of the parties involved.

Whereas, emergency use provisions have been withheld or denied for non-vaccine methods of treating Covid infections. This failure to provide medical options raises questions about conflicts of interest by Government Agencies relative to Big Pharma and suggest a conspiracy to sell jabs over advancing alternative, non-invasive pharmacological protocols. The Government has done nothing to support the development of non-vaccine treatment protocols that could keep a worst cases off the ventilator and  avoid serious injury or death.

Whereas, the FDA has not approved vaccines (only issued Emergency use Authorization), and the trial for actual approval continues until 2023, means those receiving the vaccine cannot be fully informed pending the results of the experiment. The unwillingness by some to accept vaccines has merit. The secrecy of the drug companies, and failure to show the raw data of Stages 1, 2 and 3, of initial trials of vaccines, precludes informed consent, a requirement for dispensing risky medicine.

Whereas, the government plan is to mass vaccinate the country, essentially imposing a mass experiment on the country, cannot be implemented because 30% of the country are refusing to take the shot.

Whereas, the Emergency Use Authorization did not provide for a ‘control group’ to compare to vaccinated groups as far as we know; therefore, those refusing the vaccine are ‘defacto’ the control group, and should be treated with respect and made into a ‘pariah’ class of the unvaccinated.

Whereas, experts cite research findings that show Big Pharma cannot be trusted to issue accurate studies on medical claims for new technologies, and conclude claims about vaccine efficacy and safety must be treated with skepticism.

Whereas, recent numbers from the CDC Vaccine Adverse Effect Reporting system show more than 3000 deaths associated with Covid 19 vaccines, an increase in fatal adverse reactions from a ten year period preceding this finding. An individual’s right to not to participate in an experimental program associated with fatal reactions must be respected.

Whereas, non-vaccine treatment protocols for the Covid 19 infection need to be developed since a New York Times report finds that a sizable 30% of adult population will not agree to be vaccinated; as a result, the national plan to reach “herd immunity” from vaccines, will not occur.

Whereas, the Federal Drug Administration has given no priority to advancing protocols for building robust immune systems as a front line defense against viral infections; this shows the FDA is putting vaccines over other treatment options in violation of its duty to serve the public trust.

Whereas, it appears as though the Food and Drug Administration is working to prevent the use of Ivermectin, proven to quell worst case Covid 19 symptoms.

Whereas, never before in modern medicine has it been a practice to diagnose an individual with a disease and provide no pharmacological protocol for managing said illness; yet that is what is occurring with the Covid outbreak.

Whereas, the PCR test has been challenged as a faulty method of testing. Tthough the PCR test enables the identification of genetic material, it has been utilized to make a medical diagnosis without clinical findings of an illness. This same PCR test creates ‘false positives’ due to the high (35-40) threshold cycles setting; however, testing at a lower 15 cycle threshold would more accurately provide evidence for an actual infection. But this isn’t the cycle threshold that has been used through out the outbreak.

Whereas, ordering symptomatic patients to quarantine without a treatment protocol, enables worst cases to develop. Not offering a pharmacological protocol goes against the medical ethics. The lack of a treatment protocol has evidently lead to thousands of unnecessary deaths.

Therefore; we call for the following:

Enact a Medicare for All healthcare system to assure prevention and early treatment along with paid sick leave and a universal basic income to allow and to encourage those with symptoms to quarantine and “lockdown” as required by government protocols, without suffering economic hardship.

Stop vaccine mandates. Stop private and public employers, school districts, colleges and universities from mandating the vaccine since it is only authorized under an emergency use and making an informed consent around the risk cannot be made as it is experimental. Informed consent may be possible when the investigation is concluded in 2023, and the results of the trial have been peer reviewed in an open and transparent setting.

Do not extend Emergency Use authorization to children and pregnant women. Stop approval for Big Pharma (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson and others) from extending emergency use to groups not included in Stage 3 trial that evaluated the initial safety of the vaccine.

Free Doctors to practicing medicine. Demand that the Food and Drug Administration give emergency / investigational use for anti-viral cocktails, minerals and other vitamin supplements that treating physicians have found have demonstrated efficacy  for treating the Covid 19 infection. This would include Ivermectin and other compounds.

Support medical / health freedom by providing options for Covid 19 treatments. Enable, support, and advance efforts to re-purpose existing generic pharmacological agents that prove efficacious for treating Covid 19 infections. Catalogue all that has already been accomplished on this front, and continue the research.

Support development of non-invasive treatments like the nebulized nitrous oxide compound, for example, that would obviate the need for experimental vaccines, which put people at risk for an adverse reaction and other complications.

Demand open and public hearings from the Congress.

Call for Congressional hearings to compel testimony from Big Pharma, CDC, NIAIH and Eco Health Alliance officials, on claims of fraud and other malfeasance concerning the inaccurate reporting of the PCR test based on high threshold cycles which bear false positives; on the fraud committed against the Hydroxy cocktail; on failure to provide emergency use of anti-viral / anti-parasitic medicines like Ivermectin and other compounds; investigate failure to control the pandemic even when citizen / scientists issued warning of the disease; investigate the claim a ‘gain of function’ engineered virus as the source of the alleged covid 19 outbreak so that future outbreaks may be avoided or more quickly recognized when they occur; investigate the reason President Trump declared the Covid 19 outbreak a national security matter and failed to treat the threat following normal  epidemiological steps; investigate the patent trail on corona virus technology to determine if motive for financial gain has colored decision making on the Covid outbreak; finally investigate for any and all malfeasance as can reasonably be determined.

Demand transparency and a full accounting from Pfizer, Moderna, and J and J for the findings of he investigational use of vaccines ending in 2023. Demand full access to findings of vaccine investigation.

Declaration of State Crimes; form a Caucus on Government Accountability

Green Party US: Declaration of a Resolution to name the 1960’s assassinations and the September 11, 2001 attacks as “state crimes against democracy.” and to establish a Caucus on Government Accountability, Transparency and Whistle Blower Protection to advance the cause of justice and accountability.

Whereas the Green Party USA platform calls for investigations of the September 11, 2001; and calls for the “end [of] the abuse of National Security Letters,”

Whereas this indicates that the official 9/11 Commission investigation is a false narrative; indeed, subsequent research and evidence demonstrate by a preponderance of evidence from credible sources that the 9/11 Commission covered up the crimes by reporting a false narrative. The cover up is a de facto state crime against our democracy.

This is a Resolution declaring the 1960’s assassinations and the 9/11 events state crimes against democracy (SCAD) perpetrated by elements of the national security state, inside and outside of government.

Our declaration is based on two levels of evidentiary consideration, one the criminal and the other civil level. The cover up, or failure to investigate and prosecute pursuant to normal police procedures, implicates the state in a crime against democracy and is beyond a reasonable doubt evidence of a crime: the failure to investigate and prosecute.

All investigations were corrupted by a lack of transparency and independence to set scope of the inquiry, and scientific, third party review.

The state deployed patsies to disguise the real conspiracy. Lee Harvey Oswald, James Earl Ray and Sirhan Sirhan, were covers for state crimes against against leaders who were a revolutionary threat to the status quo. However, had John, Malcolm, Martin and Robert lived, the course of history would have altered radically, and we are certain we would have had fewer wars, and more would be accomplished around mitigating global warming and limiting the power of the metro / chemical industry and its military industrial associates.

Looking at the 1960’s assassinations and the 9/11 events through a civil lens of evidence, the facts of the cover up, and the facts of the assassinations themselves, tilt the scales toward a guilty verdict of a willful and wanton tort, conducted by by state actors.

We the people of the Green Party US find by reason of a preponderance of evidence provided by credible sources that unaccountable employees and contractors of the federal government CIA, Secret Service, FBI, Military Intelligence, and Joint Chiefs of Staff, have all at various times participated in and committed crimes against American democracy and should be considered traitors.

Therefore, we call on the US Congress to convene and hold open and public hearings on these allegations and use their subpoena power to compel testimony and bring surviving conspirators to testify, or let them invoke their 5th amendment rights.

Meanwhile, Congress should commission a Truth, Justice and Reparations Commission to simultaneously engage in multiple commissions to uncover government malfeasance so it can be accounted for and the historical record made clear, and financial penalties assessed against individuals and businesses.

History and the possibility for a more peaceful world was undone by the assassinations; had they all survived and lived a fruitful life, America and the world would be different. instead we inherit what Michael Parenti called the ‘gangster state.’

In closing; we resolve that Greens USA will remain vigilant toward achieving justice on this matter, and press for accountability. Greens shall have a standing Caucus on Government Accountability, Transparency and Whistle Blower Protection to press for justice and monitor malfeasance and overreach of State agencies engaged in collusion with Military Industrial, Big Pharma, Big Bankers Complex.

Caucus on Government Accountability issues call to Greens to declare against state crimes against democracy

To: Greens USA, for discussion and debate:
From: Caucus on Government Accountability, Transparency and Whistle Blower Protections.

Regarding: A media project to call out the malfeasance and demand accountability and justice.

Dear Comrades,

The time for offering a vision for a better society is long past. The ecological emergency we are in makes getting justice and accountability a priority because without that the power of the elites will remain unchallenged, and green possibilities for a free and ecological society will be doomed by state and corporate domination. To break the chains of domination, Greens need to call out the Big Lies that have been used to build the oligarchic technocratic plutocracy into the monster that it is today.

A concerted campaign dedicated to calling out the ‘Big Lies’ will garner considerable attention. Greens can position themselves as champions of the people and the planet by calling out the lies that have enabled the power structure to act with impunity to advance a violent military industrial state. But this requires speaking truth to power, and may ultimately require mobilizing the general strike. But first, we must agree on a strategy for delegitimizing the power structure.

I was active in Oregon’s Pacific Party at the time the September 11, 2001 attacks occurred on the Twin Towers, Building #7, and the Pentagon. Since then, the Pacific Green Party has increased its numbers only marginally even though the conditions that Greens have warned about have gotten worse: the wealth divide has increased; the environmental conditions have worsened; and the collusion of the military industrial, chemical complex with unaccountable deep state elements has only deepened. But the appeal of the Green Movement has not kept pace with the growth of the American national security state.

To explain the lack of growth, anecdotally, party activists point to the problem of campaign finance and the difficulty of overcoming Big Money; some point to the electoral inequities and cite the need for Ranked Choice Voting to help a minor party gain a foothold in state legislatures. Oddly, since 2001, Oregon has added two other ‘progressive’ and centrist political parties to the ballot, further diluting strength of Greens. And now, ‘Bernie-crats’ are advancing a “people’s party” that will likely siphon energy away from the Green Movement.

I wonder, though, might GPUS be more well known, and more highly regarded, had the Green Media Machine stood firm on calling out the Big Lie of 9/11from the beginning? Greens would have had to have been willing to face off with slurs of “conspiracy theorist” from those advancing the false ‘official’ narrative of the 9/11 Commission.

Had we more vociferously called out the Big Lie of 9/11, the Green Movement, I think, could have become a bigger player in American politics and culture than we are today. If we had relentlessly pushed back against the obviously phony assertion that the buildings just ‘pancaked,’ (to quote Dick Cheney), we would be considered tenacious champions of justice; I am sure of this. But Greens would have faced a furious mainstream media, the one owned by the plutocracy.

To be clear, the GPUS platform plank does call for a full investigation of the 9/11 events and by implication rejects the credibility of the 9/11 Commission Report. Furthermore, Greens recognize the problem of the Military Industrial Complex, the abuse of National Security protocols, and the need to resist an encroaching surveillance state emblematic in the proposed “vaccine passports” for Covid vaccine. But Green leaders seem shy about invoking platform planks that give us moral standing to call out the malfeasance.

Ironically, the protest against the Iraq War in 2003 responded to the ‘Big Lie’ that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction, but mainstream progressives wouldn’t question the 9/11 events, or even the 1960’s assassinations (considered too long ago to matter). It was a lost opportunity because by 2005 upwards to 80% of Americans wanted a new investigation.

While Jill Stein as Green presidential candidate took heat for challenging the official narrative on 9/11, perhaps if Greens had a stronger, more militant institutional message about getting accountability, then her standing may have been bolstered by the Party activism.

The newly formed Caucus on Government Accountability calls on Greens, across a variety of media platforms, to advance reports that call out the corruption and the malfeasance of big business and Congress, and the unaccountable deep state; this will distinguish us from all the other parties, especially the duopoly. Running against corruption, and detailing the crimes, is very likely to give Greens more traction with those on the political spectrum who are suspicious and skeptical of state authority and corporate power.

I will leave it up to each reader to do his or her own research on 9/11, but my reading and understanding is that the attacks were an inside job and the events of 9/11 constitute an act of state by unaccountable deep state actors who betrayed their oath to defend the constitution.

Consider these facts of culpability: by invoking “national security” Federal authorities precluded a forensic criminal examination of the Towers and Building 7; there was a media blackout on the recovered airplane Black Boxes from the Towers; there was a complete denial of the obvious case of imploded buildings, among other issues, all of which implicates the US Government in a crime scene coverup. Greens need to call this out every day.

Much has been written about 9/11 and the record is clear that a preponderance of evidence shows the US Government is lying to the American people and is hiding the truth.

Let’s imagine:

What might the Green Movement look like today had Greens relentlessly fought for the truth, and not caved under pressure and gone silent on state crimes? What might the movement look like today had Greens positioned themselves more antagonistically to the state authorities, and functioned as a foil to security state overreach?

One thing is for certain, if pressing for the truth caused the Green Party to grow, greens would have been subject to FBI surveillance and beset with agent provocateurs to undermine the political message. We should expect this, but if our message is clear, it won’t matter. We need to make a strong case by considering what we have lost.

What historic possibilities were lost as a result of the 1960’s assassinations and the 9/11 attacks? This question is important because it reveals how impactful these crimes have been on determining the course of history. Our current conditions are due to the decisions of the national security state in collusion with the military industrial complex.

For example, society never got a ‘peace dividend;’ we never got a chance to see where President Kennedy would have taken the country given his willingness to negotiate with post-colonial nationalists; we never got to see what influence Malcolm X could have had on international affairs as a radical muslim citizen diplomat, nor did society get to follow the trajectory of Martin Luther King was leading the country.

Instead, American society has been on a war footing since WW II that has not let up, and the military industrial elites have held virtually absolute power. We should be very indignant about the unsolved crimes that have enabled a form of corporate and government tyranny to develop in our society.

The failure to prosecute state crimes has led to even grander acts of impunity by which deep state / Big Industry operators are able to carry out a plutocratic agenda. Indeed, if the culprits were exposed by an aggressive Congressional investigation into Kennedy’s assassination, then impunity might have been broken.

But that didn’t happen, and so the impunity carried on and enabled the events of 9/11. The lack of accountability of the 1960’s taught the power elite that they can tell a big lie and get away with it. So, they told a bigger lie than ever told before in the 9/11 crime.

To recall the lyric: ‘silence like a cancer grows;’ and American silence has enabled increased acts of impunity which has expanded the power of the state and weakened the strength of civic institutions and the people’s will to fight.

If Greens champion getting to the truth, and demand justice, then we will be filling a rhetorical void in the mainstream media-sphere. We will be champions of a moral cause, and the American people will come to the party to be in solidarity with our call for justice. It isn’t enough to run on our 4 pillars; we are long past that language; now we need to run on breaking the chains that bind us to a plutocratically controlled criminal state.

It is time for Greens, Progressives, Populists, Libertarians, to all unite around demanding justice for state crimes against our democracy, and insisting on the possibilities a democracy promises, as a measure of taking back our country.

Greens should lead on this, and it would behoove us to consider recruiting Jesse Ventura and Cynthia McKinney to be the presidential ticket for the Greens for the 2024 presidential run; they both have electoral experience and have demonstrated a commitment to pursuing the truth.

We the people cannot make a better society without the plutocracy being held to account for crimes against our democracy and earth’s ecosystem. Let’s call out elite impunity by calling out the malfeasance and demanding accountability.

An Open Letter to Greens and progressives for a call to take a stand against state crimes: sign the petition to investigate the crimes.

An open letter to Green Party organizations of the United States of America.

As Greens compete in the open marketplace of ideas, and endeavor to spread their message for creating an ecologically sane society, and seek to gain electoral seats in local, state and federal government, they need to stand out on issues that get at the heart of what the “Green Project” is all about. I propose Pacific Greens endorse the effort to enact a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to seek truth and justice for those killed in 1960’s assassinations.

Greens are for ecological sustainability / ecological wisdom, grassroots democracy, social justice, and living in a peaceful, non-violent society.

But all of this possibility for a better society is shadowed by the grave injustice of the 1960’s assassinations, especially John F. Kennedy’s. James Douglas in his book, JFK and the Unspeakable: why his death matters, convincingly argues that JFK was murdered by agents of the U.S. Government who conspired to prevent Kennedy from carrying out a presidency that threatened to undermine the power of the military industrial complex; Douglas asserts that if Kennedy wasn’t killed our country would have , could have, put the USA on a peaceful trajectory and avoided the Vietnam War, Iraq War, and Afghanistan war and countless other CIA covert operations that undermined democratic movements. The blow against Kennedy was a blow against the possibility for peace in the world.

One of the most egregious aspects of the Kennedy assassination is that the official explanation provided in the Warren Commission Report, a brazen cover up, was a preposterously implausible conspiracy theory that covered up a host of known facts; the preposterousness of the lone gunman theory, and the pressure to accept the official report, forced the American public into cognitive dissonance, which manifests as a silence, because facing the horror of the assassination renders one unspeakable, or speechless. However, Americans know they are being lied to.

One poll asked if the person accepted the Warren Commission theory of Oswald being a “lone gunman,” to explain the Kennedy assassination; 70% said they did not. So, 70% of those polled don’t believe their government is telling the truth. As long as the truth of JFK’s assassination goes unaddressed, and the lie about his murder remains uninvestigated, then we the people will be unable to confront the vast power of the military industrial complex and get justice.

The Green dream for a peaceful world, and any hope of “social justice” much less simple justice, is precluded by the 1960’s false narrative that essentially holds the American public in a captive state of silent submission. We employ cognitive dissonance to cope with the problem of facing the official lie about Oswald: we don’t trust the Warren Commission Report but we won’t challenge the veracity of the report either; we live with a lie. By making a platform plank for a Truth Commissions we can purge the silence and purge the fear which keeps us silent, and empower and even enliven the green movement with a purposeful vigor: get justice for Kennedy and reassert his call for a Peaceful world that controls wars by controlling the Military Industrial Complex. I believe this can be a winning principle for Greens to organize around and build relationships with other progressive groups as a way to build the movement.

Assuming Greens ever take the presidency, or even a federal senate seat, the elected official will be confronted by the problem of a national security state that is not invested nor interested in Green Values and would be antagonistic to any Green New Deal that might be advanced.

Indeed, the green pillars for ecological wisdom, and non-violence / peace are antithetical to the goals of a national security state. A Truth and Reconciliation Commission will shine light on sectors of our government that must be confronted; otherwise, the Green ambition for a non-violent society and peaceful world can never be achieved.

Greens should stand in solidarity with The Truth and Reconciliation Committee; it is the action project for American Truth Now, ameriantruthnow.org, They are circulating a petition to ask Speaker Pelosi to open an investigation, or at least sponsor a Truth and Reconciliation project to investigate the 1960’s assassinations. The purpose is to reveal the truth and find some pathway into reconciliation, so that society may learn from the past to make a better future.

President Dwight Eisenhower famously warned the nation three days before he relinquished the presidency and Kennedy was inaugurated, that we should beware of the Military Industrial Complex; he wanted to include congressional in the group but was dissuaded by his speech writer. Sadly, the warning did not save Kennedy, nor have our elected officials heeded the warning; thus, the Military Industrial Complex solidified its power. As a result, we are a country captive to a plutocracy against which we have little capacity to push back.

This is a call for Greens to explicitly denounce the national security state governmental / military industrial complex. It’s grip on government is what has kept our country from moving forward in a way consistent with Green values.

I call for all Greens to discuss and debate these provisions for doing the following by taking a vote of the members:

Sign the Petition circulated by American Truth Now, which asks Speaker Pelosi to open a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to inquire into the 1960’s assassinations;


Include a plank in Pacific Green platform that explicitly Calls for a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to explore and clarify facts around the assertion of the joint statement on the 1960’s assassination makes; or, a plank that denounces USA government malfeasance for failing to investigate JFK’s assassination and bring bad actors to justice; or, call for prosecution of Allen Dulles, post-mortem.


Sponsor local conferences that educate the public on issues of Truth and malfeasance by U.S. government and corporations;

Include a platform plank that recognizes the value and importance of Whistle Blower protections; call for expanded protections to all government employees and private contractors that reveal government actions and programs that are contrary to the public interest, are illegal, and / or are not consistent with the oath of the constitution;
Include a platform plank that calls for a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to be formed to investigate the 9/11 events.

Include a platform plank to denounce illegal aerial spraying and call for a cease and desist of all geoengineering projects pending an environmental review for impact and a legal / judicial review for violations of oath to the constitution.

In closing, it is my experience that any discussion of about Truth is a taboo topic and so members of the Pacific Green Community will be uncomfortable with this, but by calling for a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and standing in solidarity with the American Truth Now Joint Statement, we acknowledge that it is important to address illegal acts, especially ones that are morally reprehensible.

The “Unspeakable” in the title of James Douglas’s book is what is taboo; the Unspeakable is the profoundly uncomfortable task of thinking about and acknowledging the evil force that was brought to bear on JFK; a force, or a group, which robbed us, we the people, of a world of possibilities that John F. Kennedy wanted to see develop. We should feel very indignant about this.

Instead we sit in silence; the silence that fear of the Unspeakable produces, and this fear conditions us to live with the Unspeakable; we sweep it under the rug and ignore it, or rationalize it away.

Our silence enables the official conspiracy theory of JFK’s murder to remain unchallenged, and the false narrative retains legitimacy in social consciousness. An unchallenged government lie is a denial of justice, and our silence only lets the corrupt regime act with impunity.

As a result, official lies have enabled the people behind the Military Industrial Complex to rob us of what could have been: a society and history marked mostly by peace and less by war than what the USA has produced over the past 60 years.

It is our right to know the truth, and it is our right to demand justice and seek redress for our grievance. As Douglas discusses in his book, and he cites Thomas Merton, a Trappist Monk who anticipated Kennedy’s assassination when he mused that if Kennedy pursued peace with Kruschev, he would be assassinated. Douglas went on to say about Merton that he thought, one’s willingness to look into the “unspeakable” and contend with what is behind Kennedy’s assassination, is a measure of ones humanity and compassion for human kind.

Let’s support the efforts of the American Truth Now by passing the proposed measures.

All political parties need a Caucus on Government Accountability, Transparency and Whistle Blower Protection: A Resolutions

A Resolution to form a Caucus on Government Accountability, Transparency and Whistleblower Protections as a way to channel activism toward a noble cause; inspired by the principle of Non-Violence.

We political Greens from around the USA recognize that the Military Industrial Complex is a major impediment to peace and has initiated crimes against democracy, domestic and foreign; therefore, we call for a Caucus to provide a clearing and a call for activist members to stand vigil and monitor for injustice, and petition our grievances to appropriate governmental agencies.

To preface:

Greens are opposed to violence as a general rule and so we are opposed to unaccountable elements within government agencies, covert and overt, that illegally cause violence and other malfeasance. Transparency and accountability are antidotes to government and corporate secrecy, which is a poison to our democracy.

Whereas;

The National Security Act of 1947 created an opaque section of government that functions as the ‘national security state’ and which operates in secret and is by design and intent, violent; the Act spawned and sustained the Cold War against communism, thus, it deprived the American people of a peace dividend following WW II.

Alan Dulles orchestrated the transfer of NAZI war criminals from Germany to the United States, and with his brother John Foster Dulles, established the CIA and established the foundation for the Military Industrial Complex.

President Eisenhower famously warned the nation of the danger of the Military Industrial Complex, two days before the presidency passed to John F. Kennedy. Kennedy fired Allan Dulles for his role in the Bay of Pigs, and threatened to “scatter the CIA to the wind.”

President Truman penned a Washington Post editorial within a week of Kennedy’s assassination calling for CIA to be limited to true intelligence gathering, and expressed remorse about signing the 1947 Security Act into law.

The Warren Commission Report appointed Alan Dulles to act as executive director of the Commission and curate the flow of evidence and testimony,

A preponderance of historical evidence shows U.S. Government agents have carried out a secret agenda of the Military Industrial / National Security State Complex in the case of the Kennedy assassination, and other 1960’s assassinations and later around the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Let it be resolved that Greens demand that:

All governmental malfeasance conducted in the name of national security that was ordered by high level government personnel, must be subject to full investigation by a dedicated Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission.

Our country is entitled to know the truth about government agency involvement in the 1960’s assassinations and the 9/11 event, so we the people may come to terms with our history, and consider the unthinkable and unspeakable violations of the public trust; by doing this, we can hopefully avoid and prevent additional acts of malfeasance in the future. Furthermore, by holding investigations we the people may reclaim rights within the political realm that were stolen from the country, that are represented by possibilities for a better society.

A government that neglects to pursue justice against those who commit crimes against national leaders, is complicit in the unaccountable deep state. This failure of Congress to protect the country, perpetuates acts of impunity, and the failure to investigate these crimes makes Congress a willing partner in the malfeasance. Silence is complicity. We demand investigations to compel accountability.

The oath to defend the constitution and protect the republic has been broken by malfeasance around the 1960’s assassinations and the 9/11 attacks. To the extent possible, we demand individual actors be named and subject to a review by a TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMITTEE.

From credible sources, based on a preponderance of evidence, we find our democracy has been attacked on several occasions, so we:

Endorse the petition advanced by the Truth and Reconciliation Committee which calls on Congress to convene a Truth Commission to investigate the 1960’s assassinations and to release all records associated with the John F. Kennedy assassination.

Demand an accounting for role the FBI and US Military Intelligence played in the assassinations in Dr. King, Malcolm X and Freddie Hampton, as a preponderance of evidence shows Federal complicity.

Endorse Greens USA platform plank calling for September 11, 2001 investigations; endorse all calls for a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to conduct a full criminal forensic investigation and criminal probe into the 9/11 bombings of the Twin Towers and Building #7; and account for the the attack on the Pentagon.

Demand an investigation of all aspects of the September 11 crime pulling on extensive research contained in archives of the 9/11truth.org web site.

Require full disclosure of all surviving evidence, including video tapes seized from facilities at the Pentagon site; airplane black boxes; and more.

Whistleblower Protections are necessary for securing justice and preserving our democracy; so we call for:

Strengthen Whistle-Blower protections to include full protection from retribution by Federal authorities and grant retroactive protections for those who called out malfeasance.

Stop the U.S. Government persecution of Julian Assange in recognition of his role as a Whistle Blower.

Grant Edward Snowden immunity from Federal prosecution in recognition of his role as a Whistle Blower.

Grant Chelsea Manning complete exoneration for violations of rules in light of her role as a Whistle Blower.

Subject government secrecy rules to an independent investigation into necessity and purpose for secrecy status.

Increase legal protections to journalists who report on governmental malfeasance.

Place the Inspector Generals from the General Accounting Office beyond the reach of presidential influence and capacity to manipulate.

Extend protection of Whistleblower Protection Law to officers and staff of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Investigate the Covid outbreak:

Call for a Congressional Truth Commission to conduct a full investigation into the origins and provenance of SARS Cov2.

Investigate the joint American and Chinese gain of function research into coronaviruses that is associated with the SARS Cov2 outbreak, including the role Peter Daszak, as principal at the Eco Health Alliance, a sub-contractor to federal agencies, including the Pentagon.

Investigate if violations of patent law, and international law against patenting natural organisms, have occurred in the ‘gain of function’ research associated with the coronavirus.

Pull back the national security rules that conceal safety violations and risky gain of function technology that create hazardous conditions within and surrounding the Level 3 and 4 Bio Safety Lab.

This Caucus Resolution should be updated periodically at conventions for purposes of speaking truth to power.

Book Review of An Act of State, by William Pepper; by a preponderance of evidence…

William Pepper befriended Martin Luther King after King read a Ramparts Magazine article in 1967 about atrocities in the Vietnam War. Pepper’s report moved Dr.King to take a more critical stance against the war and later lead him to call for a Poor People’s Movement, fusing two currents of at a time of revolutionary change.

In An Act of State, William Pepper, a radical human rights lawyer, tells the story of engaging with the King family to uncover the truth around King’s murder.

MLK’s assassination was a profound shock to Pepper, which at the time, drove him away from the public activism, to professional work, but he would return to the crime scene, almost 12 years later, on behalf of the King family to try to get James E. Ray a new trial.

Ray claimed his innocence within three days of his guilty plea; Pepper’s investigation makes the case that Ray was set up as a patsy to make the state’s case of a lone gunman assassin; but Pepper’s counter narrative is that there was a conspiracy and it was an act of state, which describes the thesis of King’s assassination. To exonerate Ray, Pepper needed to convince a jury an of alternative explanation for what happened.

As a way to build public interest for a new trial for Ray, Pepper conducted a mock trial of the King assassination on BBC television. Though Pepper was never able to secure Ray a new trial, who died in jail in 1998, the King family did sue Lloyd Jowers …, who implicated himself as a result of the BBC TV production.

Lloyd Jowers was mentioned as a suspect, given witnesses saw him handle a rifle reportedly used in the crime. Jowers was the landlord for the short term room rental from which Ray is alleged to have shot King.

To deflect his role as the actual assassin, Lloyd Jowers went on ABC and said to Sam Donaldson that he participated in the assassination and knew who the assassin was.

The King family sued Lloyd Jowers and through the case, Pepper demonstrated by a preponderance of evidence that Ray did not kill King, and that more plausibly it was a conspiracy of local and federal law enforcement. They won a $100.00 financial award from Jowers, and the King family was satisfied with a revelation of a conspiracy.

In Pepper’s account, there were a lot of people involved in the assassination: local mafia, local police, FBI and Military Intelligence / assassin teams that would be used as a back up if the primary assassin team of local people failed; it’s complicated.

William Pepper has two other titles about the King assassination, A Plot to Kill King, and Order to Kill, which provide credible and plausible explanation for what happened and why it happened.

In a nutshell, Ray was framed, and an elaborate plot was engineered; there were insiders in the Civil Rights Movement who are alleged to have aided and abetted the assassination, and there has been the ongoing cover up that involves misinformation and assassination. Pepper reports a fascinating story of deceit and intrigue, as he pieces together the bits and shards of evidence, much of it second hand.

Pepper tells the story of how King matured as a social political activist from his days in the 1950’s and early 1960’s. It was a great triumph for the movement when President Johnson signed into law in 1965 the Civil Rights and the Voting Rights Acts. But King kept moving forward and wanted more reforms.

In 1967 King delivered his famous speech condemning the Vietnam War and it was a shot across the bow for the establishment. King exhibited a willingness to branch out from civil and voting rights to more radical and contentious issues like opposing war (the military industrial complex, and opposing systemic impoverishment of people of color. Some in the movement thought King betrayed a tacit agreement to not get too “uppity” and to not as for too much, like ending a war.

When I think about the 1960’s assassinations including John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X and Robert F. Kennedy, I wonder how history would have unfolded if these great leaders were not killed. It is easy to imagine that the geo-political affairs of an imperial American power would have have been brought to heel under an anti-militarism policy and a pro-social justice movement. This was certainly King’s destiny.

Indeed, it is possible to imagine if the four assassinated leaders lived a full life, that great arc of a just history that King confidently believed was available to humankind, might have, could have unfolded.

Perhaps the highlight of An Act of State is Chapter 10, which is a discussion into King’s philosophy about change and where he was willing to go, and the implication of this for his fate. But it should inform our thinking today about where we should be as a movement and the stance we need to take to achieve the chang: King’s vision.

Pepper eloquently recites King’’s philosophy of anti-materialism and a deep humanism that would oppose the relentless drive into a consumeristic, materialistic society that would prove antagonistic to basic principles of dignity for all, and a pursuit of a just society.

To highlight some of the text from Chapter 10: A Vision unto Death, a Truth beyond the Grave; Pepper observes: King, he says, “inherited a dehumanized society…where all values are reduced to market values and market prices…King confronted societies’ ‘insatiable quest for money and material consumption’…as the growth of corporate power parallels the increasing dominance of materialism, the movement for community control and localization becomes the natural reaction to the process of society dehumanization that Martin King sought to reverse.”

“Underlying the Poor People’s Campaign was a goal of empowering people in their communities to create a better life in balance with nature…and…becoming part of the woodier world as zones of accountability and responsibility, which they manage themselves.”

King saw a problem of the “dominance of western materialism…” He saw the “insatiable quest for money…” and juxtaposed that with the “Poor People’s Campaign” as a ‘revolutionary undertaking’ to counteract the pursuit of money with the pursuit of social justice.

King further challenged members of his own faith by calling Christianity a ‘religion of materialism,’ and criticized it for undermining the world’s tribal people, ‘across five continents, over five centuries and enabled the Europeans to achieve world domination of global resources.”

King scathingly denounces European culture as carrying the “materialistic torch” that ‘caused deaths of hundreds of millions…’ His critique of European culture saw it as a “materially advanced technological society running away from…Judeo / Christian heritage…’ Pepper goes on to observe the “the military industrial complex…[King saw it] as violating American cultural heritage by making USA greatest purveyors of violence on the planet…” Poignantly, King prophesied that the growth of militarism would cause the end of democracy…”

In King’s view…”the only alternative to disaster was to promote the perception of the oneness of humankind over the public policies of the nation…”

King aligned explicitly with Ghandi’s vision for change through civil disobedience and he aligned with Ghandi’s humanitarian sensibility which Pepper traces to a philosopher named John Ruskin, a critic living in the UK.

Pepper notes that by 1967, no national leader had emerged to lead the anti-war effort until MLK made his view known. As a warning to the Establishment, a largely white demonstration involving 200,000, mostly middle class protestors, converged on the Pentagon, encircling it, and this presaged what would happen in Washington DC with a Poor People’s Campaign.

King was “attempting to confront the core issue of economic injustices running in American Society…” which included protesting the War in Vietnam and the growth of militarism.”

This “new struggle brought MLK into direct conflict with the Federal Government and its numerous agency surrogates…[serving]…corporate interests.”

King’s movement, Pepper observes, was more ‘akin to a class revolution than an anti-colonial struggle…” and for this reason, King’s destiny was cut short, as an ‘act of state.’

So, what are we the readers supposed to do with the knowledge that our government, or surrogates of our government, national security state agents, killed an American citizen endeavoring to affect a social revolution?

Well for one, we should accept that the attack on King and others in the 1960’s was a counter-revolution conducted by agents of the state; we need to accept that in effect historical possibilities were denied by the assassinations. Justice means reclaiming history, forcing accountability with truth commissions, and demanding a reparation toward the peace dividend we should have gotten.

We then need to call for the same thing King was calling for…as a way to redeem King’s vision, and give King’s vision the same currency today it had when he was killed; and continue to move forward, as a movement, from where he left off…because since King’s assassination, things have only gotten worse in terms of our society descending into materialism and militarism. Society has degraded since King’s death. Let’s go back, figuratively speaking, and set things right.

A shout out to RFK Jr. and the silent left.

I’m fresh from watching a podcast between Robert F. Kennedy Jr., principal at Children’s Health Defense, and Naomi Wolff, a journalist friendly to Kennedy’s point of view. . This blog post is a shout out to them.

The podcast was mostly the two of them ranting and lamenting, but offering serious discourse on the state of mind of the political left in Covid 19 America. I couldn’t find the link to the podcase when I went back to the CHD website looking to bookmark. It was a very informal conversation, but really a rant from RFK, Jr., which was ok. He is entitled to rant; he was bemoaning the silence of the left.

For those unaware, Kennedy has considerable history as a litigator, handling grievances from families and individuals who claim to have been injured from a vaccine. And he has won a share of cases in Vaccine Court, where injury cases are disputed.

Most recently, Kennedy was ‘de-platformed’ from one of the big social media accounts because he posted skeptical messages that challenge the mainstream media and official narratives about what is going on around the SARS Cov2 virus. The media from which RFK Jr. was de-platformed said he made false claims about the vaccines; this attack on his character was amplified by The NY Times article disparaging Kennedy as an ‘anti-vaxxer.’

However, as a measure of Kennedy’s bi-partisanship, Children’s Health Defense web page featured a headline asking followers to petition their representatives in Congress and the Senate to support HR 834, a bill sponsored by Republican Representative Bill Posey from Florida; it is a call for investigations, perhaps initiated by this letter from CHD.

It is unclear if there is any Democratic Party support for the measure, but certainly Green Party USA should support this bill, and build a bridge with the right.

Wolf and Kennedy lament the absence of any concerted critique of the Covid lockdown from traditional left sources. Indeed, the left are largely silent on Covid skepticism and accept the official narrative that there is nothing nefarious or untoward going on around the Covid 19 epidemic.

See this article for a plausible hypothesis for an engineered virus suing gain of function technology. https://www.minervanett.no/files/2020/07/13/TheEvidenceNoNaturalEvol.pdf

On the podcast, Naomi W. characterized herself and Kennedy as “liberals,” but they are really ‘libertarian’ leftists willing to look critically at the information, and willing to challenge the mainstream narrative asserted by the authorities.

Their discussion highlighted what drives much of the skepticism of the Covid pandemic; problem of domination by Big Pharma; and they discussed the sad silence of the left, and the alienation from friends and family unwilling to dialogue, stuck on the official narrative, uncritical of claims of malfeasance.

They discussed the problem of Big Pharma and its collusion with the national “health” agencies like the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease. Kennedy questioned the assumption of power by Bill Gates’ through his GAVI institute, all because he could, by seeding his philanthropy, he insinuated himself into the World Health Organization, the United Nations, and presents himself as the expert, asserting “everyone will get the vaccine” and a “vaccine passport” will be necessary to travel, boasting another time how much money that could be made from selling shots. Such an assertion should get the attention of the best civil libertarians.

And underneath all of this is the role patents and big money play as drivers in research and development. Now, Big Pharma is poised to experience the largest infusion of revenue from vaccines and testing, never seen before.

Another reason for skepticism is the extensive involvement of the US Pentagon in research and development of dangerous pathogens through Gain of Function technology that involves colluding with Big Pharma and NIAH. This kind of research involves level 3 and 4 ‘Bio-Safety’ lab testing facilities, an ironic term given the numbers of documented lab leaks that have occurred over the past years from them. Read Richard Ebright interview.

But the mainstream media do not highlight this aspect of the problem, nor provide any significant history and back story for the development of corona virus research. From the left, there is minimal journalistic investigation of the conflicts of interests that run rampant and are evidence of extensive corruption (all of this routinely covered in CHD media platform). See this conflict of interest news story about Peter Daszak, principal for the Eco Health Alliance, a liaison between US government agencies, including the Pentagon, and Chinese laboratories.

Democracy Now! hosted by Amy Goodman interviewed Daszak at the onset of the covid outbreak but asked no questions that challenged his credibility or questioned the extensive back story of corona virus gain of function. And, Daszak continues to be the lead apologist for the zoonosis theory of SARS Cov2 entering the human population but offers no credible citations for how this occurred. This article poses a plausible explanation for gain of function technology in the SARS Cov2 virus.

The rightwing media obfuscates by not going for the whole story, and especially, not raising questions about the long patent trail that runs through NIAH, CDC, and Big Pharma. If the ‘follow the money’ axiom has any currency, it is necessary for understanding how society is being manipulated by the Covid 19 ‘pandemic.’ See the Fauci / Covid 19 Dossier for an expose on this matter.

Progressive media produces misinformation. For an example of a hit job, there is the previously mentioned NY Times hit on Kennedy, but here is a link to The Daily Kos, ostensibly a “progressive” media, devoted an article to discredit Dr. Redfield, Trump’s appointment to the Centers for Disease Control, who opines that the virus leaked from a lag. The point of this piece is to reason fallaciously about the lab hypothesis and discredit the hypothesis.

Never in the article does the Daily Kos author mention or give credence to the hypothesis of a lab leak; instead it reasserts without evidence what the NY Times, Peter Daszak of Eco Health Alliance, and even leaders within my own Oregon Green Party claim; that SARS Cov2 emerged “naturally” into the human population through zoonosis. But more evidence supporting the ‘gain of function’ hypothesis is more plausible based on the research on corona viruses that has been carried out for the past decade and longer.

Within my own Green Party here in Oregon, we have members who aggressively deploy fallacious reasoning to stop any meaningful dialogue about how the government and Big Pharma are handling the pandemic. For example, I have advanced Kennedy as a noble figure for his call for investigations of coronavirus, only to have him slurred as an “anti-vaxxer,”; thus killing the message by destroying the messenger.

It appears from the silence that “progressives” and “liberals” largely accept the official story about the emergence of SARS Cov2; and many don’t want to know if there was malfeasance; the betrayal would be too hard to bear. As a result, many largely accept that there really is no other treatment option for treating a Covid infection and accept that only a vaccine can open society back up from our economic lock down.

Clearly, society is in a straight jacket; Big Pharma led by the NIAH has led the nation into a mass vaccination program by keeping other means of treatment off the table.

I stand in solidarity with Robert Kennedy, Jr. and the work of the Children’s Health Alliance because they are one of the few media sites that offer a consistently well reasoned critique of Big Pharma, its collusion with state agencies and with private philanthropies like the Bill Gates GAVI outfit. They take a decidedly libertarian, anti-state, anti-corporate-domination position, and as a result, are one of the few media institutions that actually argue for constitutional freedoms against a national security / surveillance state that is encroaching on our liberty.

Those in the left who accept the NY Times’ misinformation about zoonosis being the most likely explanation for SARS Cov2, fail to comprehend the actually plausible lab leak hypothesis; by not critiquing or questioning the official assertions, the left is standing with Big Pharma and the state agencies against government accountability and transparency. That is the wrong side to be on. Furthermore, without knowledge of how the virus entered the human community, we cannot prepare for future threats.

The better approach for everyone, would be to remain agnostic about Covid, stop judging others who question or doubt, keep an open mind and stand in solidarity with calls for congressional investigations; and let’s see what truth can be revealed.

Once malfeasance is well established by a preponderance of evidence, we can demand reparations from Big Pharma for damage done and harm caused.
