Rep DeFazio votes to arm Ukraine
On March 23rd 2015 Congress DeFazio voted with an overwhelming majority of war-mongering Republicans and Democrats to call on President to arm the Kiev junta. First, sending such weapons is a clear violation of the Minsk 2 agreement negotiated between Russia, Kiev junta, Germany, and France. Recall that the Kiev junta was installed by a violent coup - fomented by the US - in Feb 2014 against a democratically elected government.
More importantly, arming the Kiev junta and their neo-Nazi militias will enable them to attack ethnic Russians living in eastern Ukraine in the Donbas and Luhansk regions. An attack of this sort is intended to draw Russia into full out war with the Ukraine and NATO, which Russia has so far resisted. When will the Congressman sponsor a vote to use DIPLOMACY to settle this issue, instead of weapons?
Hillary Clinton's ties with Ukranian Oligarchs
|It has recently been reported that Ukrainian oligarch Viktor Pinchuk, a vocal proponent of Ukraine's European integration, made huge contributions to the Clinton Foundation, while Hillary Clinton was the US Secretary of State. Among individual donors contributing to the Clinton Foundation in the period between 1999 and 2014, Ukrainian sponsors took first place in the list, providing the charity with almost $10 million. The recent "game of thrones" in Ukraine has been apparently instigated by a few powerful clans - Nuland and Kagan come to mind - of the US and Ukraine, who are evidently benefitting from the ongoing turmoil. In this light the Clinton Foundation looks like something more than just a charity: in today's world of fraudulent oligopoly we are facing with global cronyism, experts point out, warning against its devastating consequences.|

A View From Oregon
Commentary by Blair Bobier, cofounder of the Pacific Green Party.
I feel sorry for John Kitzhaber—the soon to be ex-Governor of Oregon. He’s accomplished a lot, he loves this great state of ours and he seems like a decent enough guy ...

Oregon needs a New Vision
By Brian Setzler, MBA, CPA.
The old vision, the one this country was founded on, doesn’t work. The human race is having a lethal impact upon the world. Lakes are dying, seas are dying, forests are dying, the land itself is dying – for reasons directly traceable to our activities. As many as a hundred and forty species are vanishing every day—for reasons directly traceable to our activities.
The old vision, grow.

Green Party Election Results 2014 Summary
The Green Party made several advances in the 2014 general election on November 4, with Green candidates winning 27 seats and ballot lines held for most state Green Parties.
The most closely watched Green races were in Richmond, California, where outgoing Mayor Gayle McLaughlin overcame a $3-million campaign by Chevron to defeat her slate, and New York, where Howie Hawkins challenged incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
