http://democracynow.org – We discuss the killing of three police officers in Baton Rouge and the recent nationwide protests against police brutality with Cornel West. Cornel West is a professor at Union Theological Seminary. “When I hear the authorities call for peace,” West says, “I say, yes, but it’s not the absence of tension. It’s got to be the presence of that justice and accountability.”

  11. Ticks my box, Professor C…. War with Iran is ‘the plan.’

    Sanders may be endorsing Clinton to keep her in check. Might he be hedging to be included in her provisional administration &/or to maximise his hard-earned leverage? Listen to Nader.

    Meanwhile in our real biospheric world, the ‘transformative moment’ is the progressive Green Step, our next (planetary) Giant Step ~

    • Unfortunately, Sanders has absolutely no power and no leverage on Clinton.

      Thanks for the link.

      • In the Jorge Ramos interview, Nader says Sanders has

        “set her up for political betrayal…that will allow him to enlarge his civic mobilization movement…after the election & after she takes office; so I think it’s a very astute endorsement…”

        Sanders knowing full well, holding her feet to the fire etc as not being enough ~ so R N then continues

        “she should commit to send specific legislation within a hundred days to the Congress after she is inaugurated in order to make sure she meant what she said, in terms of the Democratic platform…”

        which is precisely what Obama did not do and so on; so I think it is wise to ponder this assessment.

        Of course a hundred days in US ‘politics’ is an eternity, anything may happen. So I’d say we can only predict the unpredictable. As Bernard Lewis has been fond of saying, it is hard enough for any historian even to predict the past.

        My point would be, nothing is inevitable; we create our futures by who we are, morally, spiritually and existentially; which is what the entrepreneurial mystic Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev insists is far more important than trying (reactively) to rearrange perceived outcomes of so-called real situations.

        Cornel operates from a very similar premise.
