Peace Message From Damascus.

By Jerry Alatalo

P1000889-1Alphabet United States representative to Congress Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii traveled to Syria recently along with former member of Congress (and candidate for President) Dennis Kucinich of Ohio. The current and former U.S. politicians went on a fact-finding four-day mission, visiting and discussing the tragic situation there with Syrians from all walks of life – including a personal meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The four young Syrian women Ms. Gabbard met in Damascus recorded in the video below were in the 12-14 year age range when the tragic violence, killing and destruction of their home nation began nearly (6) six years ago. Given the seemingly inestimable, endless levels of reconstruction which is going to become necessary once peace finally returns to the country, it is somewhat remarkable – a supreme irony, certainly – that two of the young women are studying architecture while another studies civil engineering.

One becomes hesitant to comment further for fear of detracting to any extent from the powerful message delivered by four kind and pleasant young Syrian women to the American people. Their heart-felt unanimous message clearly comes through loud and clear, leaving nothing else necessary to say…

“Peace”.

2016 Gamechanger: Michigan Votes Peace And Prosperity.

By Jerry Alatalo

aaa-28Alphabet It’s impossible to know how many voters in Michigan based their choice of Hillary Clinton on her outright and historic debate lie, the night before the vote, about Senator Bernie Sanders: “He voted against the auto bailout!” One can only speculate how many in Michigan were successfully deceived by Ms. Clinton’s intentional, truly abhorrent, slanderous crime against her political opponent, then voted with the falsely held perception that Bernie Sanders “voted against Michigan workers”, against “our family and friends”.

Unfortunately, once a lie goes out over the airwaves or media, into the minds of people innocently striving to gather as much information as possible upon which to base their decisions – in this case, voters in Michigan on whether to vote Sanders or Clinton – the effect produced by the lie is very difficult to reverse or correct. The most damning indictment of Hillary Clinton for her deliberate slander of Bernie Sanders – not illegal, but profoundly unethical and far beneath the dignity of any person seeking the office of president of the United States – is that she knew the lie would gain her more votes, help her win Michigan’s primary election, and, that she consciously chose to deceive the people.

Despite that disgusting political attack in line with the psychopathic tactics of Machiavelli, Michigan voters went to the polls and gave the Sanders campaign a 50% to 48% win. One can imagine, if Ms. Clinton hadn’t made the conscious decision to run on the “dark side” of politics, that the final totals would have been more in line with results in Kansas and Maine, where Sanders won with much greater percentages.

Despite the roadblocks established to prevent success for the Sanders campaign since it began some 10 months ago, including the media’s virtual censorship through providing little airtime for him or supporters, along with highly biased narratives in reporting constructed/designed to convince the American people Sanders’ campaign had no chance, that Hillary was the inevitable Democratic nominee, the Michigan result shows that Americans have clearly had enough of status quo, “same old, same old” politics as usual.

Fundamentally, the American people are increasingly become aware that, with what some describe as one’s “gut feeling” or intuition, there is a real difference between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton when it comes to their respective human characteristics, most keenly felt when observing and contrasting each candidate’s personal integrity and forthrightness. Sanders comes across as professorial, while Clinton, especially evident in the Michigan debate, comes across as harsh, combative, overly aggressive…, in the mold of unpleasant negative-attack advertisements which most people have come to reject.

Political campaigns are famous for their “horse race” aspects where media analysts, politicians, business and religious leaders, and everyday people offer their opinions and predictions. After the historic vote in Michigan which all the polls showed couldn’t happen, with next Tuesday’s (March 15) primary elections in Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio and Missouri, and the momentum generated for Sanders, it’s not unreasonable to predict Sanders will become the next president of the United States.

Hawaii’s representative in the U.S. Congress and Iraq War veteran Tulsi Gabbard supports Bernie Sanders and believes he has the wisdom and judgment required of America’s commander-in-chief of the military. She explains why during her introduction of Bernie Sanders at a rally in Michigan, while advocating to the audience and all Americans for a “new era of peace and prosperity”.

Imagine a new era of peace and prosperity… The American people are now able to manifest such a world into reality – with their votes.

Hawaii’s Tulsi Gabbard Endorses Vermont’s Bernie Sanders.

By Jerry Alatalo

RockwellAlphabet VETERAN of the Iraq War and member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard has resigned her Vice-Chairman position on the Democratic National Committee, allowing her to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont as the party’s nominee for President of the United States.

Drawing from personal experience as a 23-year old medic in Iraq where she saw the human cost of war – which she has described as a powerful and life-changing event that in essence shattered all her preconceptions about war and peace – Representative Gabbard has concluded that Sanders, as potential commander-in-chief, possesses better judgment than Hillary Clinton.

Ms. Gabbard, the youngest member of the U.S. Congress and its sole adherent of the Hindu spiritual tradition, has become widely seen as one of the Democratic party’s “rising stars”, in particular because of her outspoken criticism of U.S./Obama administration policies in Syria and the Middle East.

Pointing to then Senator Clinton’s vote for the Iraq War (“she hasn’t apologized to my brothers and sisters”…), her central role as Secretary of State in the NATO/military attack of 2011 on Libya resulting in that nation’s descent into political and socioeconomic chaos, Clinton’s statements about establishing a no-fly zone in war-ravaged Syria risking confrontation with Russia – possibly world war, Gabbard believes if Clinton were to become elected president she (Clinton) would continue, in the view of Ms. Gabbard, a clearly unproductive “interventionist, regime-changing” model of U.S. foreign policy.

Tulsi Gabbard’s endorsement represents a major positive development for the Sanders campaign going into “Super Tuesday”, strengthening in the minds of voters what some have perceived as a weakness of Sanders: foreign policy. What difference Hawaiian Tulsi Gabbard’s endorsement of Bernie Sanders makes will become clear after all the votes are cast, and all the votes are counted.

World peace is possible.
