Live Stream Thurs. June 30th 2016 - California Primary: A DISTURBING Story

Featuring Bill Simpich, Ida Martinac, John Paul Rice and Lori Grace

The California Primary was very poorly managed. We will show "UNCOUNTED: The True Story of the California Primary," an extensive mini-documentary by Michelle Boley and Taylor Gill, made in the last two weeks. If you choose to watch it, you may feel very disturbed. We invite you to come to this evening, with updates on the California primary and recently filed lawsuits.

Bill Simpich and Ida Martinac, two attorneys-at-law, will be present to answer questions about the lawsuits that have been created to address some of the many injustices that have occurred in California. Bill Simpich will have just returned from filing a lawsuit in San Diego to follow up on another election integrity lawsuit that has already been filed by Ray Kurtz. Bill has also filed another lawsuit against Secretary of State Alex Padilla, which he will also talk about.

Problems in the California primary election range from poor and disrespectful training of poll workers and poll inspectors, to voter suppression and electronic manipulation.

John Paul Rice from Los Angeles will make a brief statement on SKYPE about the electronic manipulation that happened in California on that night as well as in New Jersey and Delaware.

Lori Grace will be present to report on the recent filing of an Ohio election integrity lawsuit by Cliff Arnebeck and Robert Fitrakis.

Uncounted: The True Story of the California Primary

All-in-all, this will be a powerful and intense presentation.
We invite you to come to this free evening.

Bernie Sanders Calls for Democratic Party to OPPOSE Trade Deal


Sanders Calls for Democratic Party to Oppose Trade Deal

JUNE 27, 2016

BURLINGTON, Vt. – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday urged Democratic Party platform writers to take a stand against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a proposed 12-nation trade pact that he said would have “disastrous” consequences for U.S. workers and the environment.

“The Democratic Party must go on record in opposition to holding a vote on the trade deal during the lame duck session of Congress and beyond,” Sanders said. “This is about preventing the outsourcing of jobs, protecting the environment, stopping pharmaceutical companies from increasing the price of prescription drugs, preserving our democracy and respecting human rights.”

At a platform drafting meeting last weekend in St. Louis, Missouri, Hillary Clinton’s representatives voted against a proposal to put the party on record against a vote in Congress on the trade deal. On the presidential campaign trail, however, both Clinton and Sanders opposed the agreement.

Sanders’ supporters plan to bring the trade deal up again when the full Platform Committee meets in Orlando, Florida, in early July and, if necessary, at the full convention later next month in Philadelphia.

“During the next days and weeks we will reach out to a large grassroots movement of working people, environmentalists, human rights advocates and religious groups to support an amendment to the platform in strong opposition to the TPP,” Sanders said. “If we succeed, we will be in a very strong position to stop a vote and to fundamentally rewrite our trade agreements in order to end the race to the bottom and to lift up the living standards of people in this country and throughout the world,” Sanders said

Every major trade union in the United States opposes the agreement that would make it easier for corporations to throw Americans out on the street and move factories to low-wage countries like Vietnam where the minimum wage is just 65 cents an hour.

Environmental groups oppose the pact because it would make it easier for some of the biggest polluters in the world to despoil the planet. Major religious groups say the deal would reward some of the biggest human rights violators in the world. Doctors Without Borders is strongly opposed because the agreement would raise prescription drug prices by making lower-cost generic drugs harder to buy.

The agreement also would give multi-national corporations the ability to challenge our nation’s labor and environmental laws if these laws would reduce expected future profits.
