Jill Stein Tells Progressives: ‘Don’t Waste Your Vote on Corporate Democrats’ Who Betray You

Although this article is from Breitbart and thus considered suspect by some, it nonetheless contains an accurate representation of the Green Party's Jill Stein in her effort to break through the news blackout of her campaign for the Presidency. The message conveyed is from Jill Stein to progressive voters not to "throw away" their vote on another corporatist Democratic candidate i.e., Hillary Clinton ... and to remember that the same corporatist Democrats have demanded your vote to stand against Republicans only to betray you time and again.


“Don’t waste your vote on corporate Democrats. #InvestYourVote,” Stein wrote on Twitter on Wednesday



Stein then retweeted a statement from the Green Party’s official Twitter account which read, “It’s time to #InvestYourVote in building a people’s party – not waste your vote on corporate party candidates that continue to betray you.”

“Unlike the Democrats and Republicans, we don’t cuddle up to Wall Street and special interests with our ‘public’ and ‘private’ positions,” Stein added in a separate tweet, referring to the recent WikiLeaks revelation that Hillary Clinton said that politicians need to have “both a public and private position” on every issue

Jill Stein, imo, would make a good POTUS, certainly better than the current 2 options. She is up-to-speed vis-a-vis the globalist agenda......

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is a hero. Like Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning, and other whistleblowers facing government persecution, Assange has sacrificed his personal comfort and safety to bring us the truth.

George Orwell said, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” Thanks to WikiLeaks, we know that powerful institutions have been abusing their power and lying to the public. For example, redacted State Department communications published by WikiLeaks revealed that Secretary Clinton identified Saudi Arabia as a leading funding source for terrorist groups around the time she approved a whopping $29 billion arms deal with the Saudi dictatorship.

WikiLeaks courageously published the infamous “Collateral Murder” video showing an American helicopter gunning down Iraqi civilians, Viewed over 15 million times on Youtube alone, it revealed just one of the many shocking war crimes whitewashed as “collateral damage” by the US government.

WikiLeaks’ stunning revelations of how top Democratic National Committee officials conspired to sabotage Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, in collusion with the media, shattered the illusion of a fair electoral process and confirmed what millions Americans already knew in their gut: we live under a rigged political system.

What WikiLeaks actually does — to political parties, the military, and other powerful entities — is pull back the curtain of censorship, spin, and deception to show the public what’s really going on. Unlike pundits in the mainstream media, WikiLeaks doesn’t tell us what to think. They invite us to read the emails, watch the footage, and decide for ourselves.

The political and economic elite, used to controlling information, see this unprecedented transparency as a tremendous threat. They have mercilessly persecuted a series of heroic whistleblowers. Chelsea Manning, convicted of leaking the Collateral Murder video among other revealing materials, was sentenced to 35 years in federal prison.

Manning, a transgender woman, has been subjected to treatment that the UN described as “cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment” in violation of the Convention Against Torture. Shockingly, after a recent suicide attempt, Manning faces disciplinary charges that could land her in indefinite solitary confinement.

The security state would like to make an example of Assange, as it has done to Manning and others. In fact, the Obama administration has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all previous presidents combined. And the persecution of whistleblowers is often accompanied by ruthless character assassination to discredit them.

Many have asked how Greens, who count feminism among our ten key values, can support Assange when he’s been accused of rape. As a strong advocate for victims of sexual violence, I take this question seriously.

While countless media reports highlight the allegations against Assange, most people have never heard that an official UN report has declared the case against Assange to be unfounded. Three investigations have been dropped without charges ever having been filed. And the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has stated that Assange has been unlawfully detained and should be released. In light of these facts, it appears the allegations against Assange were a false pretext used by those who want to give him the Chelsea Manning treatment — or worse.

As the Presidential candidate of a party that has maintained principled criticism of powerful political, military and corporate institutions, I’ve gotten a first—hand look at how the establishment attacks people who challenge the status quo. These attacks are intended to brand their targets as pariahs and stigmatize anyone who dares to challenge this narrative. The truth is a frequent casualty to political vendettas.

On that note, one of the strangest developments this year has been seeing journalists attack WikiLeaks for doing what journalists are supposed to do: reveal the unvarnished truth to the public. WikiLeaks has done us an invaluable service by shining a light into the dark corners of power where corruption and wrongdoing fester.

The economic and political elite have targeted Assange not because his hands are dirty, but because he’s given us a glimpse of how dirty their own hands are. WikiLeaks’ revelations are inspiring countless people to mobilize against corruption and wrongdoing at the highest levels, and for that, Julian Assange is a hero in my book.

Jill Stein is the Green Party candidate for President

Ok. What do you expect her to say??? She's not a Democrat so why would she say to vote for them??? Wouldn't really make much sense for her to be running and tell people to go vote for her opponents now would it??

She's been tweeting about the leaks, one of the few political figures that hasn't sold their soul to establishment and isn't afraid to speak the truth.

Dr. Jill Stein on Twitter: #PodestaEmails reveal ISIS is funded by Saudi Arabia + Qatar—2 big donors to the #ClintonFoundation. Why are we backing these regimes again?

Dr. Jill Stein on Twitter: Why does the corporate media prop up Hillary and smear her opponents? Because they're huge donors to her foundation.

Not while he was running for president like Jill currently is.

Bernie was in fact running as a democrat at the time against Hillary so trying to make a case out of him makes about as much sense as wondering why Jill is asking people not to vote Democrat.

I'll say she's only speaking part of the truth. Anyone with knowledge of international politics knows exactly why we're supporting those 2 "regimes". They support our paramilitary proxy soldiers; they support the petrodollar; they're reliable partners for defense contracts, energy supplies, and both foreign and domestic investments; they're staunch enemies of Israel's enemy Iran; they have unspoken alliances with Israel's right wing; they dominate the GCC, whose member states also support the petrodollar, are reliable Western investors, and house Western military bases in their territory, etc.

If the West gets its way in Syria, there will be new pipelines from the Arabian Peninsula that will supply Europe (and possibly Israel) with stable energy supplies. This will allow European countries to ween themselves off of Russian energy supplies, which will obviously weaken Russia (which is also an American foreign policy goal). This has clearly been determined to be worth any blowback our citizens will receive from our tolerance of groups like ISIS & al-Nusra in Syria.

Sorry, not to rant at you. But as much as I like Stein, I wonder what her foreign policy positions would be if she were miraculously elected President. I wonder if she simply doesn't know these things or if she's one of the people who are intentionally simplifying Middle Eastern situations to keep our public in the dark on them.

Stein has pointed to a number of the Wikileaks emails as evidence that Clinton is not the sort of person for whom a progressive should vote. There are many threads on ATS discussing issues in the leaked emails such as this one: Wikileaks Podesta Leak - Found The Plotting Of Hillary's Email Server Story
