Excerpt: "...she hoped her legacy would be as a person who was, 'transparent and honest throughout that process' and did 'everything I could to make America a little better that day than it was the day before.'

"In essence, Sanders embraced a scorched earth strategy where—in a quite shameless effort to defend Trump—she would gladly sacrifice core elements of democratic society.

"Of course, given the sheer volume and magnitude of lies Sanders and her boss have inflicted on the U.S. population over the years, it's hard now not to laugh at these words."

"Vision Zero is really an urgent message. Many of us are familiar with “Complete Streets,” we’re familiar with “Walkable” and “Livable Communities” as terms. But what’s different about it is the urgency behind it. One hundred people a day are dying in traffic crashes, and it’s important for us to note this urgency behind this traffic fatality crisis that we experience every single day."

From Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and former New York Times correspondent Chris Hedges: "The extradition and trial of Assange will mean the end of public investigations by the press into the crimes of the ruling elites. It will cement into place a frightening corporate tyranny. Publications such as The New York Times and The Guardian, which devoted pages to the WikiLeaks revelations and later amplified and legitimized Washington’s carefully orchestrated character assassination of Assange, are no less panicked. This is the gravest assault on press freedom in my lifetime."
