What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Notice: FaceBook has prevented me from logging into my FaceBook Account to make posts on my personal page.

FaceBook has retaliated against me because I am one of the Administrators of a page that has exposed widespread corruption on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation by publishing the documents proving the corruption.

FaceBook removed the documents from this page even though the documents are of the nature of being public records and the corruption includes the misuse of tribal funds along with state and federal funds.

For my part, I will not back down from supporting the publication of the documents FaceBook has removed.

The internet is supposed to be a way for such corruption to be brought to light for all to see.

Once again, Rocky Anderson, the former Mayor of Salt Lake City and the lackluster presidential candidate of the Justice Party who turned in a most embarassing vote total has turned to attacking me... and this is my response to him and members of the Justice Party.

My suggestion would be that we move on in organizing the Justice Party without Rocky Anderson since he and his arrogant multi-millionaire friend, Jonathan Ruga, along with a small group of right wing libertarians, have been the primary obstacles to moving forward in building the Justice Party as a viable progressive party.

We have seen how Rocky Anderson supported Bernie Sanders only to have Bernie Sanders come out and say he will be voting for Hillary Clinton who Rocky Anderson claims he could never support.

Rocky Anderson is responsible for sowing dissension in the Justice Party as a means to prevent it from moving forward.
We don't need Rocky Anderson, Jonathan Ruga or their small band of libertarians, some of whom have openly aligned themselves with KKK's David Duke and others with the Israeli Zionists perpetrating a campaign of genocide against the Palestinian people.

​Rocky Anderson has demonstrated a complete unwillingness to work in a way that fosters the kind of unity required to build a new progressive political party.

In fact, in the past, Rocky Anderson has arrogantly stated he expects the rest of us to do his "heavy lifting" as if the Justice Party centers around him and not the quest for peace, social and economic justice as was originally intended.

Instead of putting forward his reactionary anti-working class views in a forum for debate, which includes opposition to the government being responsible for attaining and maintaining full employment, he has put forward the view that full employment is a mere goal and objective of government rather than a responsibility of government while acting like a Democrat in trying to stifle dialog and discussion.

Making the president and Congress responsible for attaining and maintaining full employment with programs and projects financed by beating sword​s into plowshares has always been central to a progressive agenda.

Rocky Anderson, Jonathan Ruga and their little band of libertarians should be told to take a hike.

If Rocky Anderson is going to attack me for bringing forward for consideration in the Justice Party's Platform, full employment; who will his next target be?

I point out that I am a former member of the Justice Party's National Steering Committee

Bernie Sanders says he will vote for Hillary Clinton... but, will you vote for Wall Street's candidate?

Why would Bernie Sanders support Hillary Clinton when the majority of those who gave their support to him don't want to vote for Hillary Clinton?

This demonstrates a complete lack of respect and an arrogance that is mind-boggling on Bernie Sanders behalf towards those who went all out to support him thinking he was going to take on Wall Street only to have him turn around and support Wall Street's main candidate: Hillary Clinton.

This leaves us to wonder if both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders aren't ringers being used by Wall Street in order to trick us into believing we have choices when we really don't.

And the media, again, owned by Wall Street, has very cleverly manipulated the coverage of all three candidates with no toleration of any discussion about the need for a new political party similar to Canada's socialist New Democratic Party.

Might one of these 1,800 billionaires be your next door neighbor?

Ya, sure; you betcha...

They will all live and retire very comfortably...

New Rankings: The Richest People in America (And What They’re Doing that You’re Not)

What they never mention is the fact that the working class collectively creates all this wealth they are controlling and manipulating to work against us and for them... What are they doing? They are exploiting and then screwing you...

New Rankings: The Richest People in America (And What They’re Doing that You’re Not)

By MONEY MORNING STAFF REPORTS

Forbes just released their annual report on the richest people. And there’s only one real surprise on the list.


1,810 billionaires made this year’s World’s Billionaires List, with a total net worth of $6.48 trillion, down from $7.05 trillion last year. Altogether, 221 former billionaires dropped out of the rankings, while 198 newcomers joined for the first time.


Bill Gates is the front runner with a $75 billion net worth. Close behind him is Amancio Ortega with $67 billion, and Warren Buffett with a whopping $60.8 billion.


Hedge Fund Managers, George Soros and Carl Icahn fall in at numbers 23 and 43, with $24.5 billion and $17 billion respectively.


You may be asking yourself right now, “What investments are making these guys so rich?”
Or, “What are they doing that I’m not?”


We actually may have an answer for you…


Money Morning’s Executive Editor, Bill Patalon, is, for the first time ever, releasing his research on a group of 7,524 millionaires and billionaire hedge fund managers who are legally able to move stock prices.


As you’re about to see, with $2.3 trillion in collective buying power, this group has more wealth and political sway than most small countries.


They’ve recently seen prices jump by as much as 300%, 1,135% and 1,400% in just six months.


Most of us wouldn’t touch these stocks


They’re buying shares in companies like Celator, Energy Recovery and Uni-Pixel, all of which have already gone up nearly 500% in a matter of months.


Since his research started, Bill has been referred to as “The World’s Greatest Stock Picker,” roping in 2-3 double and triple-digit peak gain winners every month.


Bill has not released his research to the public.
