The undeclared war in Afghanistan is the longest war in the history of our nation. Since 2003 the United States and its allies have started new wars in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and the Ukraine killing tens of thousands of innocent civilians and creating millions of refugees.

To that end, the Jill Stein campaign is looking for a volunteer in Oregon to send out a fundraising email to ask for matching funds donations, and make follow up calls – for which the campaign has provided a suggested phone script.

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?
|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.|
