Nevada Democrats sue secretary of state and Green Party to block Jill Stein from ballot

The Democratic Party is escalating its attacks on third-party candidates in an effort to block any challenge to the two-party monopoly. On June 11, the campaign of Green Party candidate for US president, Dr. Jill Stein, reported that the Nevada State Democratic Party has sued the Nevada secretary of state and the Nevada Green Party, in an autocratic bid to keep Stein off the ballot.

Deja vu all over again for NC’s 3rd parties

A report this week by Kyle Ingram of the Raleigh News & Observer revealed that an ugly tactic — that of a major party trying to bully third-party candidates off the ballot to improve their own chances — has returned in North Carolina. In 2022, the Democratic Party really, really wanted their candidate, former state Supreme Court Justice Cheri Beasley, to defeat Republican (and ultimate victor) Ted Budd in the US Senate race. They made the calculation that this could not be done with Green Party candidate Matthew Hoh appearing alongside Beasley as an option for left-wing voters. So, they decided to go all out trying to get Hoh, whose Green Party successfully secured enough signatures, disqualified. Continue reading

Green Party Submits 20K Signatures for Nevada Ballot

Barring Democrat shenanigans, Jill Stein should see her name in November The Nevada Globe is reporting that The Green Party has submitted more than 20,000 signatures statewide, about twice the number required to qualify for the ballot in 2024. If the process holds up to the harsh scrutiny that will surely be directed her way — expect Democratic partisans to fight and nail against the inclusion of the Green Party candidate—then Jill Stein, the party’s nominee in 2012 and 2016 will face Silver State voters in 2024.

LA City Council poised to strong-arm local democracy

Why a ‘democracy package’ of charter amendments needs to be considered independent of elected officials In October 2022, in response to the racist and hateful leaked audio recording between then-Los Angeles City Council members Nury Martinez, Kevin de Leon, and Gil Cedillo, and in the midst of ongoing corruption scandals plaguing the City Council, the Council voted to explore amending the City Charter to create an independent redistricting commission (IRC) and a larger city council.  Continue reading

Jill Stein for president – a moral imperative

The timeworn tactic of voting for the lesser of two evils has led us to unutterable evil, as exemplified by the arming of, and diplomatic cover for, Israel’s atrocities in Gaza and the West Bank. This war crime is only the latest in a very long series of moral outrages committed by successive Democrat and Republican regimes. The military-industrial complex requires enemies to thrive, and our bought-and-paid-for presidents are happy to oblige. Even if that means risking all in a confrontation with Russia or China.
