Green Party Disavows Turncoat Stein


Green Party Disavows Turncoat Stein

by Stephen Lendman

Her lofty campaign rhetoric was hollow, her progressivism phony. Her recount scam shows support for war goddess, racketeer, perjurer Hillary, financed with Soros money.

In bed with the devil revealed her true persona - not a physician wanting to use her professional skills to help heal a sick nation, as I regretfully said earlier, to my shame and embarrassment.

Claiming “we deserve some confidence in the outcome of this election” misses the key point, I said in an earlier article. Hillary as president and commander-in-chief of America’s military risks possible cataclysmic nuclear war with Russia.

Trump’s election dodged a bullet. Will he follow through responsibly on his pledge to normalize ties with Russia, both countries cooperating in combating terrorism? It remains to be seen if he’s strong-willed enough to resist enormous pressure to continue dirty business as usual.

A previous article explained Stein knows nothing about real democracy, nothing about America’s political system, nothing about its deplorable history from inception - nothing about fantasy democracy, duopoly power, a one-party state with two right wings, we the people entirely left out, a system too debauched to fix.

On November 28, dozens of Green Party members signed a letter titled “Greens Speak Out on Recount and Our Commitment to an Independent Party,” saying in part:

“We write to reaffirm our commitment to building a Green Party that has a radical analysis of the society in which we live, and promotes bold solutions to transform our society and address the root causes of those crises; a Green Party that is independent of the two money-dominated parties.”

“The Green Party cannot build the political power necessary for the transformative changes we need by allying with two capitalist parties that serve the interests of the wealthy. That is why it is imperative that the Green Party is independent of those parties.”

“While we support electoral reforms, including how the vote is counted, we do not support the current recount being undertaken by Jill Stein.”

“The decision to pursue a recount was not made in a democratic or a strategic way, nor did it respect the established decision making processes and structures of the Green Party of the United States (GPUS).”

“(S)tates chosen for the recount are only states in which Hillary Clinton lost. There were close races in other states (she) won, but which were not part of the recount.”

Stein is damaged goods, no longer credible, her recount scam a cruel hoax, accomplishing nothing but tarnishing her name and reputation, along with likely ending her political career.
