The future or the past?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez notes that we need to go forward, not go backwards by embracing a presidential run by noted failure Joe Biden.  Grabby hands does not have a history that impresses.  He failed Anita Hill, he failed America repeatedly.  His record is a thing of the past and that's where he should remain.

And it really is past time that the Democratic Party come up with a ticket which doesn't contain at least one person who voted for the Iraq War. 

Journalist Julian Assange and whistle-blower Chelsea Manning continue to be persecuted.  Former Australian ambassador Tony Kevin decries the persecution.

  1. Glad to debate you and on or on public interest value of what & did in making public this warcrime that typified homicidal way in which US&allies conducted Iraq invasion & aftermath. Fallujah, Abu Ghraib come to mind.
  2. . John, why did videos of Baghdad aerial massacre and e.g of systemic atrocities in sacking of Fallujah so appal world? You don’t credit key role of whistleblowers & publishers in stimulating public outrage against not ‘fiascos’ but war crimes.
  3. It seems in yr moral world, whistleblowing & publishing news on war crime atrocities are acts equivalent to robbing banks? Why would you assume fair trial for and publisher in perpetrating country that gave us Fallujah, Abu Ghraib etc?

It's a shame Australia's current government can't speak out for one of their own (Julian Assange).

Julian Assange is not a U.S. citizen, he’s an Australian. WikiLeaks is not a U.S.-based media organization. If the US government gets Assange extradited, prosecuted and incarcerated, it will legitimize its right to go after anyone, anyhow, anywhere, anytime. Freedom for all

Julian Assange's father requests Australian government to help his son "He was already in civil prison. Must left free with humanitarian ground."
