Busy with College, work, family, theatre and background work, and now...Bernie is back!

Things are going to get busier with Bernie Sanders back in the race. But if anything, there is a section of the population that holds a beacon of hope for decency, generosity and fairness to make a comeback in politics. #NotMeUs Brooke holds her press pass... Yesterday's rally in Brooklyn College was attended by over 13,000 supporters. I was asked to volunteer, but I could not get to the heart of Brooklyn by 8am (too much College work these days). I went over to meet up with Jessie in Williamsburg, finally saw her little angel face, Astro (Frenchie scrunch face) and then we headed over to the rally in a Car2Go! Fantastic invention. Bernie is still pissed cos the struggle continues... There, we met Hector, then Arlene (UWS MoveOn activist with whom I'd campaigned for both Bernie and Zephyr Teachout in Manhattan) and a friend of hers joined us in line. Walking into the outside venue was like going to a high school reunion. Here's a video of me, Jessie and Hec

Terrorist attacks - what is our Intelligence actually doing?

This is a reminder more than a new story. A reminder of how history keeps repeating itself. It is, in my humble opinion, a brilliant piece on this former FBI agent's efforts to get through to her superiors and their failure to wake up those in charge. At this point, I am not sure exactly who was responsible for not acting upon her suggestions, but it sounds like more than one person might have been to blame there.  I'd love to know how they feel when the shit hits the fan.

Michael Moore pickets Trump Tower with 'We Are All Muslims' sign

Well, Michael Moore does it again. While his forthcoming movie, 'Where To Invade Next' is not due until February 12th, 2016, Moore is going to be popping up all over the place for more political stunts. Here's a trailer of it: He wrote an open letter to delusional Donald Trump where he brands the American tycoon and reality tv star as a 'fearful man'. He ends it by encouraging people to "go here and sign the following statement: 'WE ARE ALL MUSLIMS' - and then send a photo of yourself holding a homemade sign saying 'WE ARE ALL MUSLIMS' on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #WeAreAllMuslims'." Moore will then post all the photos on his site and send them to Trump. "Feel free to join us," he concludes. Read the full letter HERE . Love it. Mrs Pee Pee
