Good Easter Monday morning to all. Listening to news:. Gov. Cuomo talks about what it would take to reopen the businesses slowing and strategically. He stresses it needs to be in coordination of neighboring states and they must keep the eye on containment. Take time to call your local officials, county and state representatives. Urge them to be cautious and to heed Medical advise to prevent more deaths. Ask them to contact the white house and urge the president to respect his best advisor Dr. FAUCI. Who has said we must wait to protect life. Call your Federal representatives to do the same. And please add that this is not the time to sell out the Postal Workers as Trump now is talking if shutting them down and. Selling them out. This is wholely unacceptable. #45, Trump. Pushing against all medical advise wanting to get economy open and "functioning " as before. Ignoring what we have bee through what it has taken to contain and prevent more rapid deaths. He tweets that he wants to fire Dr. FAUCI. His inability to care is glaring. It bad e ough that he used his position to push an unproven medication in order to profit with his investment in the very company that makes hydrochloride.

Meeting with Joe Sims: Co-Chair CPUSA
Folks, Cannot underestimate importance of July16/23 special issue of The Nation. It’s focus is on reinventing the (current anti-) debate for: an honest, integrated, just, creative, and sustainable foreign/domestic policy. As Katrina vanden Heuvel summarizes: “Without pretending to offer a grand strategy, it provides alternative perspectives, grounded in values widely shared by the American people. We seek to instigate not only a more open debate, but a new call to action.” Headliners include Andrew Bacevich, Bill McKibben, Barbara Lee, Bernie Sanders, James Galbraith, Ro Khanna, et al. They offer programs for breaking free of the feedback loop of never ending war and police-state rule; removing our criminal enabling of Saudi atrocities in flash point Yemen; constructively addressing the growing danger of “limited” nuclear war via leadership by example vs. leadership by exception; preserving civilization from the war on environment and ourselves; making capital assets and financing democratically accessible; diplomatically anticipating the dangers of China’s massive, growing and precarious financial markets through new global financial controls. In sum, re-framing the sterile and hubristic neo-imperial foreign policy consensus misleading us into military, economic and environmental holocaust. With his eye on the ball and heart with the working class, Bernie Sanders concludes: “the first step in winning this fight is to correctly identify the challenge. Internationally, we must have the courage to take on the global oligarchy and bring power to the many, not the few. This world belongs to all of us, not just a handful of billionaires.”
