Alabama inmate Nathaniel Woods executed

Last night, the state of Alabama executed a man for a crime he did not commit. The death penalty should be abolished in all 50 states.

“Nathaniel Woods is 100% innocent," [Kerry] Spencer, who remains on death row, wrote in an open letter. "I know that to be a fact because I'm the person that shot and killed all three of the officers that Nathaniel was subsequently charged and convicted of murdering. Nathaniel Woods doesn't even deserve to be incarcerated, much less executed."

Sanders Has Most Erie County Contributions of Dem Presidential Candidates

"He was able to build on the organization he built here in Erie County and I expect that is more where the Democratic Party has moved in the last couple of years and so it's not terribly surprising he would have this groundswell of support, even here in Erie County," Neiheisel said.

It's been a good month for the Sanders campaign.

The movements of the 1950's and 1960's made voting rights, civil rights, fair housing, environmental protection, women's liberation, and an end to the Vietnam war all possible.

Pete's comments reflect his deeply flawed theory of change and why it's a failed approach to address the many crises we're facing. Senator Sanders' theory of change - that change comes from the bottom-up, is the best way to bring real and lasting change to this country.

The "revolutionary politics" of the 1960's made the concrete achievements of that era and ours possible.

Yes, Bernie has three houses, read for yourself!
By: Marilyn Sheck

"Bloomberg lambasted Bernie for having 3 houses and being a millionaire. Bernie and Jane purchased their primary home in 2009. With two incomes they bought a 4 bedroom home, in Burlington, Vermont. The purchase price was $405,000. It is a modest home, in a regular neighborhood. It is not in a gated neighborhood, and the homes are close to each other.
In 2007 Bernie purchased what is called a ‘Townhouse’ in Washington, DC, for $488,999. There were too many times that he needed to stay close to the Senate Building for days at a time. His townhouse is small. It has one bedroom and a bath upstairs. Downstairs it has a small sitting room, a kitchenette, and a half bath. It was more sensible, financially. It is really nothing more than a glorified apartment.
When Jane’s parents passed, they left their family lake home in Maine to Jane. The Sanders decided to sell that home in 2016 and purchase a 1,883 sq. ft. cabin on Lake Champlain in Vermont. The cost of that lakefront property was $575,000. They use it on weekends, and to entertain their grown children and their families. This is in a trust, in their children’s name.

Bernie is well known for being frugal.

Two of these properties still have mortgage payments. None of these abodes are lavish. Three homes require the expense of repairs, insurance, yearly property taxes, and the usual utilities.

On a side note: Bernie was NOT a millionaire, according to his 2015 tax return, when he decided to run for President the first time. Since that bid for the Democratic nomination raised his profile in 2016, Sanders has released one book a year. In all, he has pulled in at least $1.7 million from the series, starting with Our Revolution (220,000 copies sold, according to industry tracker NPD BookScan) and then Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution (27,000) and finally Where We Go From Here: Two Years in the Resistance (26,000).

There is also a book, called The Speech. All the proceeds of that book go directly to charity."

Nicholas Kristof: Just try to pull yourself up by your bootstraps

"Europe and Canada have much more robust social welfare systems than the United States, but Americans in the prime working years (ages 25 to 54) are more likely to drop out of the labor force than Europeans and Canadians in those years. Americans drop out of the labor force primarily because we do worse than other countries of investing in workers’ education, health care, addiction treatment and job training."

Back in the 1800s, the expression “pull oneself up by the bootstraps” meant the opposite of what it does now. Then it was used mockingly to describe an impossible act.

Moderate Democrats have a duty to consider Sanders. He has a clear path to beating Trump.

"If you believe in saving democracy, the courts and the planet, and reversing the unrepentant cruelty, corruption and carelessness that define the current administration, you have a duty to at least consider the candidacy of the most popular senator in America, the top fundraiser in the Democratic primaries, and the man who has generally beaten Trump in head-to-head polls for five years now."

Bernie Sanders isn't even my favorite senator running for the 2020 nomination. But I see his potential to unite the Democratic Party and oust Trump.

Their is a new progressive party forming in the WNY area, check out our web site at www.progressiveparty.org and our FB page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/346591066040145/
URGENT! I just received this email! Please take the suggested action. Friends, https://www.facebook.com/NYPANetwork/posts/2791581774270348 https://twitter.com/NYPANetwork/status/1252675200849776644 Below is a Huffington Post article in which BOE Election Commissioner Doug Kellner announces his intention to vote to remove Bernie and all his delegates from the ballot TOMORROW! Kellner is incorrectly interpreting the new statute which says they "may" remove presidential candidates who have suspended their campaigns as "requiring" removal. He is also ignoring the part of the same law that says the BOE decision is to be based on the recommendations of the party involved. Both Jay Jacobs, the Executive Director of the Dem Party, and Joe Biden have indicated that Bernie's choice to stay on the ballot should be respected. It is imperative to start calling the election commissioners, to demand that they respect the right to vote. CANCELLING THE NY PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY WILL ALIENATE SO MANY VOTERS, EVEN THOSE WHO DON'T SUPPORT BERNIE, AS TO ENDANGER THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC TICKET. IT WOULD BE A HUGE PROPAGANDA BOON TO TRUMP AND THE REPUBLICANS. - Email NYS Commissioners Kellner and Spano (Dems.) [email protected] Republican Commissioner Kosinski [email protected] - List of county commissioners email addresses - PDF of county commissioners names and phone numbers Also call Cuomo, state legislators, reporters, et. al. Go on twitter and FB too.
The time is now, folks: NY primary April 28th. Here's the link to train for hosting knock-door events: https://berniesanders.com/states/knock/… Don't want to host? Check map.berniesanders.com to find an event in your area.
TONIGHT! CWA Local 1133 821 Elk St Buffalo, NY 14210 Phonebank to local supporters and talk with them about getting involved in the campaign:
I am so happy to see so many people who like this page and it's posts. We need that enthusiasm to reach voters throughout the country. This is important: the more contacts we can make to voters — and the earlier we can make them — the stronger our campaign will be when people start to vote. The most effective way to do this is to make calls. There are several phonebanking events in WNY that will help us reach thousands of people. We have an online call tool that will show you a script and automatically connect you to voters. It’s really fun and easy, and thousands of Bernie supporters are already doing it. Every phone call we make, and voter we talk to, is one step closer to victory. Not Me, Us is a movement. Who is going to hop on board and put in some time for this critical campaign? Go to www.map.berniesanders.com and sign up for a phonebank. In Solidarity! 🔥✊🔥
