Green Shadow Cabinet Secretary of Peace, David Swanson, talks to the Ed Show on MSNBC about President Obama's illegal and counter-productive bombing of Syria.
"This is a blatant violation of article 1 section 8 of the Constitution... it's [also] a blatant violation of the UN Charter," Swanson said. "More importantly it's counter productive. There is no military solution, they keep saying that."
"Candidate Barack Obama strongly agreed with Everything I've just said. It's President Obama who has changed his mind and we have to bring him back to that desire to end the mindset that gets us into war."

NY Green Congressional Matt Funiciello calls on Dem opponent to drop out after Democratic PAC pulls ads
Citing the news that House Majority Democratic SuperPAC has pulled $300,000 worth of ad buys, Green Party Congressional candidate Matt Funiciello renewed calls for Aaron Woolf to drop out of the race and endorse him. Funiciello said the ad pulls were a clear sign the Democratic Party had given up on NY-21 and Aaron Woolf. Funiciello argued that he is the only candidate capable of defeating (Republican Elise) Stefanik, and that Woolf's poor poll numbers after spending nearly a million dollars on the race show Woolf stands no chance of winning, and that he should drop out and stop spoiling the race for Funiciello.
"Today the national Democratic Party openly signaled it no longer cares about the NY-21 race, but the truth is the Democratic Party gave up on this election when it selected a Manhattan multi-millionaire as its candidate for Congress. Aaron Woolf has run a campaign that has excited no one, spews out nothing but the standard corporate Democratic line, and offers little to the voters of NY-21, which is why he's polling at 33% after months of spending. Meanwhile I'm at 10% after spending almost no money, and we have energized people around the district. I'm the only candidate not bought by corporate and special interest money, the only candidate actually from the district, and the only one to offer a platform that could attract Republicans, Democrats, independents, libertarians, and Greens to beat Elise Stefanik's corporate-funded campaign. It's time for Aaron Woolf to stop spoiling the election for the working people of this district, drop out, and endorse my campaign, which is the only principled thing he could do at this point," said Funiciello.
