We’ll consider this an Ask Lada episode, even though technically the above comment wasn’t in the form of a question. But similar questions have been asked before, so let me respond by linking you all up with a few videos, as well as my thoughts.
From Democracy Now:
Who Should Bernie Voters Support Now? Robert Reich vs. Chris Hedges on Tackling the Neoliberal Order
LR: Incidentally, listen to what Chris Hedges says. He used to be too mainstream for my taste, but lately he makes more and more sense. My point is: it’s a positive sign that such ideas (of which you and I have been talking for years) are beginning not only to penetrate the more thinking and progressive of the mainstream, but they also start being voiced out by more or less mainstream personalities.

“It’s a Sad Day for Many of Us”: Bernie Delegates Boo Sanders After Endorsing Clinton
Part 1: Jill Stein vs. Ben Jealous: Should Progressives Reject Hillary Clinton & Vote Green?
Part 2: Jill Stein vs. Ben Jealous: Should Progressives Reject Hillary Clinton & Vote Green?
Lada Ray’s take:
As you all know, I don’t follow Western MSM, but I’m being told that there is a media blackout regarding the revolt happening at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. However, you can easily learn the truth on RT. Also try Democracy Now.
Last year, a client asked me what he should do regarding US elections. He said he had a problem with candidates from both parties. I suggested he should check out the Green Party and Jill Stein.
Amid a wholesale media blackout and political sabotage during last election 2012, Green Party candidate Jill Stein received less than 1% of votes. Stein wasn’t allowed to participate in the debates and was even thrown in jail after she tried to protest being excluded from the ‘democratic’ process. To allow a podium for the rejected by the US system third parties, RT organized its own televised Third Party presidential debates in 2012. RT repeated this feat in 2016.
This year, based on widespread discontent and disenchantment of voters with either Democrats or Republicans, alternative parties’ numbers are surging. This is hopeful news for those who want to change the entrenched and rotting two-party US system.
Read my original analysis & predictions on the US election revolt and the third-party issue:
See my very first, original prediction on US election 2016 outcome (scroll towards the end for PREDICTONS):
Related analysis/ predictions and more:
Before recent Hillary/DNC scandals and Bernie’s flop, Libertarian Party and Gary Johnson gained for the first time ever double digits and stood at 13%, while Jill Stein/ the Greens were at about 6%. Note that votes for Libertarians traditionally take votes away from Republicans, thus hurting Trump; votes for the Greens hurt Clinton. But in the extraordinary situation we are seeing this year, some may cross party lines, as I’ve previously predicted. Therefore, a very interesting dynamics is developing due to voter disappointment.
My assessment is that Green Party vote numbers should begin surging, if they haven’t begun already. By the time of the election, a large percentage of Bernie supporters will defect to the Greens as a protest vote.
Incidentally, for those who don’t know, Jill Stein reached out to Bernie Sanders, selflessly proposing he runs as the main candidate, essentially stepping aside or sharing her Green Party nomination with him. Bernie ignored the offer.
So, to the question whether ex-Bernie supporters should vote Green, the answer is – absolutely YES!
This accomplishes three things: 1. It registers your protest against the corrupt 2-party system and against one of the most corrupt candidates ever, Hillary Clinton; 2. It helps ensure that Hillary, whom I consider the most dangerous to the world’s future candidate, won’t win; 3. It supports worthy third-party candidate.
Of course, some people already wrote to me saying they would rather vote for Trump after Bernie’s flip-flop. Trump is another story – more about him in future posts!
Incidentally, for those who follow my EARTH SHIFT SYSTEM and my QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS, another reason to vote for #JillStein is this: she’s the only candidate who calibrates this highly! Others are nowhere near her – not even in the same galaxy:
Jill Stein Calibration: 410 (reason) Chi: 285 (neutrality, friendliness) Heart Chakra: 280 (a healthy heart chakra – literally NEVER happens with Western politicians!)
See complete Calibrations scale and my calibrations video links here!
Houston, we have a solution: For those who are interested and want to vote Green, here is Green Party website. The Green Party nomination convention is August 4-7, 2016.
P.S. Kinda getting tired of comments alluding to Jill Stein’s non-existent Russophobia – and NOTE AGAIN – I am a political atheist! (Also getting tired of pointing that out – just read my work more carefully!) I am solely on the side of REASON, LIGHT and GOOD for all!
To put this issue to rest, Jill Stein’s recent tweet:
Dr. Jill Stein @DrJillStein Jul 29
We are stronger when we do not bomb other countries or threaten war with Russia. #DemsInPhilly
My complete prediction for US elections & the future of America will come later this year as a new

Just a few days ago Bernie Sanders’ followers announced the creation of the ‘Bernie or bust’ movement – a sort of ‘Occupy Elections.’ Meanwhile, yesterday Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton at New Hampshire Democratic rally and announced the end of his run.
This is a brief summary of Sanders – Clinton clashes and latest developments:
This is a full video of what happened in NH:
So much for the ‘feeling the Bern’ of the ‘new American revolution’ and Bernie’s promise to ‘go all the way to the convention.’ Sanders left behind a lot of disenfranchised followers, who feel betrayed and abandoned.
Are you at all surprised at this outcome? I’m not. This was written all over the situation as it developed. Democrats’ top bras, including president Obama, spent the past couple of months wining and dining Sanders.
The US elites excel in the art of sophisticated and exquisite bribery. This art has been developed to perfection. Here’s how it works: find what makes someone you want to bribe truly tick, what’s the most important thing for him/her, and then produce it with a flourish. In exchange, you tie up the object of your bribery with obligation of gratitude and reciprocity.
Bernie’s life’s passion is to change campaign financing rules, and if he accomplishes that it would mean his life’s mission is complete – no problem, he can have that one! He wants certain liberal Supreme Court nominations – he’s got it! Maybe some better deals for students, such as free tuition and student debt forgiveness, would be thrown in as Clinton campaign promise. And mark my words, if Hillary won elections (a big ‘if’), Sanders would become a Chair of the budget committee, or something similar, or Hillary’s VP, as another possibility. He would be ensured a very high-profile position as a result of his endorsement of Clinton.
What was said behind closed doors? Simply put, Sanders was offered deals and perks he could not refuse.
Carrot and stick: I’m certain he was also threatened that if he doesn’t take the deals offered now, there would be no such deals later. They had to make it happen before the Democratic Convention to avoid having riots on their hands at the convention. Having received some relatively insignificant perks and concessions, Bernie promised to forget what his electorate truly wanted: change the corrupt system. He also promised to end his revolt within Democratic Party and to support Clinton.
There will still be lots of discontent among his betrayed constituents; although now Bernie, as the true company man, will do everything in his power to calm down his followers and steer them towards Clinton. Some of these followers won’t buy it though; they’ll leave the democrats and vote for Green Party’s Jill Stein, or for Trump, as a protest vote.
Read my past related article: Lada Ray’s First US Presidential Elections Prediction: REVOLT IN REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTIES. The scenarios I described there have developed further and they continue evolving. As I predicted in the above-linked article, change is in the air and this will be an unusually interesting and confusing US election. I foresee some very unusual – for the normally docile US elections – developments, with some shocking possibilities!
Donald Trump: many of those who are disappointed in the US system plan to vote for Trump. I didn’t want to say much on that while the primaries were still ongoing because I thought it would be counterproductive.
I am seeing a lot of behind-the-scenes activity with Trump. There are some important predictions to make… I plan an Earth Shift Report on US Presidential Elections 2016. I won’t give you the exact date when this ESR will be ready: it will come out when the timing is right. Please stay tuned for announcements!
