The Organization Question in US Progressive Politics By: Jack Rasmus

Déjà vu All Over Again

So now the cycle has begun again. As the great American philosopher, Yogi Berra, once said: “It’s déjà vu all over again.” Among union leaders, leaders of various ethnic organizations, church leaders, liberal academics, and all the rest that consider themselves “progressives,” one today hears the same refrain: Elizabeth Warren, Senator from Massachusetts, is our preferred candidate. If Hillary implodes before November 2016 national elections, we have Elizabeth Warren in the wings. Hillary may be the only one who can win against a Republican. But Elizabeth will keep Hillary honest and ensure she, Hillary, adopts appropriate progressive positions during the 18 month campaign that lies ahead. Push the Democratic Party to the left and Hillary will have to follow.

And this year we are especially fortunate, progressives add. Now we have an even more progressive candidate, left of Warren, waiting to step up as well—the Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, who also announced his candidacy for president in recent weeks. If Warren pushes the party left, then Sanders, just outside the party (actually always with one foot in it) can pull her still further left. And who knows, if Hillary falters, Sanders might actually push Warren to finally enter the race, providing her ‘left cover’ for her candidacy, as they say.

Expat Files – 05.29.15

-More on safely moving your gold, silver and precious metals across borders and how to stay as anonymous as possible while doing so.

-A word on bank safety deposit boxes: their availability and use in Latin America

-If you’ve been watching the international news over the last few weeks you may have noticed a rather big top level political shakeup going down in Guatemala. It’s just the most recent billion dollar corruption scandal collapsing the present government. Along with the country’s first female vice president, dozens of high level politicos are in jail or under house arrest and a dozen politicians now fugitives on the run from Interpol.
That said, how does all this political turmoil and unrest affect the expats and gringos living in Guatemala? What do long term expats have to say about the situation? Are they nervous, frightened and ready to pack up and leave? You’ll be surprised to hear that talk of corruption and scandal rarely comes up in casual conversation amongst gringos and expats. Why? Because every administration is thoroughly corrupt. Fortunately (or unfortunately) the only ones really affected by such massive corruption and thievery are the common people, the 80% who must ride the chicken buses, attend horrible free public schools (no desks or running water). Its the poor people who must go to the pitiful but free public hospitals (with not enough beds, gloves, medicines or syringes to go around). They’re the ones that suffer- while expats and gringos continue to live like first world people no matter which corrupt leaders are in office.


Energy Stew – Call-In Show – 05.29.15

I’ll be taking calls to answer your big life questions working with my intuition.

This is an opportunity to see how my intuition can be of help to you. I’ll spend a few minutes with each person and you’ll be amazed at how much I can tell you about your situation in that short time.
I can answer questions about a lot of different things from family issues to health to work issues as so much of the information doesn’t come from my own brain but rather from a higher consciousness.

LOA Today – 05.28.15

Feeling down? Depressed? Not up to every things?

Now you can feel better than you’ve ever felt before, and it doesn’t have to cost you a dime!

This week we discuss a scientific study that showed a direct correlation between regular exercise and overcoming severe depression. It turns out that even fast walking on a regular basis is just as effective as anti-depressive medication at helping severely depressed people to reverse their symptoms.


What Women Must Know – Trace Amounts: Autism, Mercury and The Hidden Truth with Film Producers Eric Gladen and Shiloh Levine – 05.28.15

During the past 20 years, the frequency of autism occurring in children has skyrocketed from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 68, and the scientific community is no closer to determining a cause. Trace Amounts is the true story of Eric Gladen’s painful journey through mercury poisoning that he believes resulted from a thimerosal-loaded tetanus shot. His discoveries led him on a quest for the scientific truth about the role of mercury poisoning in the Autism epidemic.


Eric Gladen majored in Engineering at Oregon State University. A tragic life experience in 2004 would change his focus to storytelling through documentary films.

Shiloh Levine studied film production and theory at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Her earlier works are mainly experimental and documentary shorts. In between film jobs Shiloh began teaching children with autism. She has also produced, written, and anchored for OTV and is currently focused on projects that inspire positive change.


Fearless Parent Radio – Birth of “Moms Across America” – 05.27.15

Parents marching in solidarity — across the United States — for food integrity. Hundreds of activist leaders organizing hundreds of community events in two short years.

This is what happened after one mom started feeding her three boys organic food to avoid GMOs and pesticides and watched their allergy and autism symptoms abate. She realized that thousands of parents are making the same discovery.
