Dr Jill on the Real State of the Union

________________________

Trump’s State of the Union speech was an incredible fake news dump… a textbook example of how corporate politicians pay lip service to regular Americans as they loot us and destroy protections for working people, our health, safety, and environment. Ajamu Baraka and I gave a reality check… the state of our union is an America in revolt against the political establishment. People are rising up for justice like we haven’t seen in decades. 61 percent of Americans want a new major party; this president and the entire political establishment are historically unpopular. We the people have the power to stand up and replace them. Trump is a symptom of a neoliberal capitalist empire on the brink, with endless wars abroad, social and economic struggle at home, a growing climate emergency, and an assault on democracy and human rights. It’s time to build the party for people, planet, and peace over profit like our lives depend on it. The future… whether collapse or transformation… is in our hands.
