Green Party’s Jill Stein: U.S. Should Stop Funding Israel & Saudi Arabia


Over the last few weeks, the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition in Yemen has killed dozens of civilians and bombed at least one school and one hospital supported by Doctors Without Borders. A number of activists, politicians and news outlets, including The New York Times, are calling on the United States to stop arms sales to Saudi Arabia over the ongoing conflict. But Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein is going even further—calling on the U.S. to stop all funding for Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Dr. Jill Stein and her running mate Ajamu Baraka have been speaking out on all media to bring these issues to the American people. Yesterday, they held a town on CNN for about 1.5 hours. They are getting traction but the GOP/DEM controlled debate commission will simply not allow them into the debates. Its the only way to keep the 3rd parties down.

In fact, while polls show Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are among the least popular major-party candidates to ever run for the White House, it appears no third-party candidates will be invited to take part in the first presidential debate next month. The debates are organized by the Commission on Presidential Debates, which is controlled by the Democratic and Republican parties. Under the commission’s rules, candidates will only be invited if they are polling at 15 percent in five national surveys. Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein have both witnessed recent surges in support, but neither have crossed the 15 percent threshold. More than 12,000 people have signed a petition organized by RootsAction calling for a four-way presidential debate. We speak to Green Party presidential nominee Dr. Jill Stein. Four years ago she was arrested outside a presidential debate protesting her exclusion from the event.

  1. between “GOP/DEM” and the “CMMM” messed up “rules” it is impossible for a 3rd party to get enough spotlight time for recognition by 15% of the masses, and it is deliberate. RIGGED “electronic voting machines” don’t offer the option of a write in candidate at all, just the phony choice of “evil A” vs “evil B”. even at the local level where opposition to an incumbent isn’t even seen, as if there isn’t anyone running against them, is “voting”?!

  2. In what states would it be safe to vote for Stein, and in what states would one’s vote likely be “flipped” to “D” or “R”? In the latter case, better to stay home and not vote at all.

  3. Interesting. I actually watched the whole video.

    Amy Goodman was less annoying than usual, and Dr Stein was downright impressive.

  4. The DNC should have been sanctioned for election fraud and their candidates barred from any elections for 5 years – this would have happened in any Democracy – if you don’t believe me – ask any Russian caught using meldonium – a drug used for heart and diabetic patients. Actually the drug was made for high altitude sickness for mountaineering and those in the military back during their Afghanistan War. Of course the scientist that actually discovered the drug and its usage asked the IOC for their proof that his drug was an enhancer – but America’s money counter-acted any — explanation to adding Meldonium to their Enhancing/ Enchanting Drugs.
