Michael Moore on His Broadway Show, "The Terms of My Surrender," Trump, Puerto Rico & the Media We're all somebody. We're all from somewhere. And the thing that the wealthy elite establishment is afraid of is that if we ever figure out that there's more of us than there are of them, they're in big trouble. There's only so many of them. There's a hell of a lot more of us. And if we take that power in our hands, they're in a boatload of trouble.

Naomi Klein Warns Europe May Water Down Paris Accord to Win Support from Trump We may end up with a situation, worst-case scenario, where Europe or other players succeed in watering down the Paris Agreement in order to get the U.S. back, and actually fail at that, but, from the interests of the oil industry, it's a great scenario, because it means that this agreement, which is--has been signed by the vast--by almost every country on Earth, becomes weaker.

Jill Stein to Bernie Sanders: Run on the Green Party Ticket & Continue Your Political Revolution In many ways, the Democratic Party creates campaigns that fake left while it moves right and becomes more corporatist, more militarist, more imperialist. This is why we say it's hard to have a revolutionary campaign inside of a counterrevolutionary party. That's why we're here as the Green Party to build a place where a revolutionary movement can truly grow with a political voice.

And so, to have this kind of a reaction is not only a waste of a tremendous amount of money, but it is going to encourage, I think, future acts of terrorism."

There has been almost no recognition that the George W. Bush administration also tortured prisoners for a very different goal: to extract information that could tie al-Qaeda to Saddam Hussein and justify the invasion of Iraq.
