“Vermont Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders and Kentucky’s Rand Paul were among the dozen holdouts from a letter the Israel lobby group AIPAC circulated seeking to limit President Obama’s actions to oppose Israeli settlements in his last months in office. Still, many progressive US senators as well as vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine signed on to an Israel lobby letter designed to limit President Obama’s actions against the Israeli occupation, now nearly 50 years old.”

So sad. And infuriating. But that’s corporatocracy for you. It’s all about corporations (especially those, like the military intelligence industrial complex and the oil industries) that in turn defend the entire money system. Betrayal is de rigueur among the politicians in the gangster corporatocracy, whose godless, lawless states (whose borders, note, are not natural or, even before God’s intervention, guaranteed) abuse their citizens in the name of ‘national security’. Those who have chosen careers in politics (too often, but not always) are those who are prepared to break rules and laws, written and unwritten. Warren and Sanders, despite their (contradictory) positions on crucial issues, sometimes, are clearly down with the wild beast of corporatocracy’s requirement to get it’s slave mark of 666 (symbolizing missing the mark, from God’s standpoint). We are all cogs within this globe-spanning corporatocracy. So the only real issue is: Do you resist? I don’t think that Sanders’s and Warren’s selective pro people, anti imperialist votes qualify as resistance. They could get other jobs, certainly at this point. They don’t ‘have to’ feed the beast. They choose to, because they also worship it.

“Then Jesus said to his disciples: “If anyone wants to come after me, let him disown himself and pick up his torture stake and keep following me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”” – Matthew 16:24,25 in the Christian Bible
