The election 2016 is over. It’s time for healing.

Friday, November 11th, 2016. New York City – The election 2016 is over. Donald J. Trump will be the president of the United States of America from 2017 to 2020. It’s time to move on and do what it’s best for our country. We can not move on without compassion and love for ourselves and those who do not share our ideas.

(24 videos I made in support of Bernie Sanders and some of the pictures I took in support of his candidacy.)

Acts of intimidation, violence and hate are not the answer. Compassion, kindness and love are the answer.

On Thursday, November 10, 2016, I received a hateful message in my inbox on Facebook from a Clinton’s supporter. Friends on Facebook have received similar messages.

I supported Bernie Sanders and Dr. Jill Stein (Green Party presidential candidate). I still support them. It’s a mistake to assume that because I didn’t support Hillary, I automatically supported Trump. I have the right to support any candidate. You have the right to support the candidate of your preference.

I oppose physical violence, emotional violence, verbal violence, etc. I oppose violence in any form. My work has been in support of peace and I will continue to work in support of peace.

I understand it’s painful for Hillary Clinton and her supporters, however they don’t have the right to attack those who do not agree with them.

Bernie Sanders twitted:

“Instead of acknowledging and addressing the fundamental flaws within themselves, [elites] are devoting their energies to demonizing the victims of their corruption, all in order to delegitimize those grievances and thus relieve themselves of responsibility to meaningfully address them. That reaction only serves to bolster, if not vindicate, the animating perceptions that these elite institutions are hopelessly self-interested, toxic, and destructive and thus cannot be reformed but rather must be destroyed. That, in turn, only ensures there will be many more Brexits, and Trumps, in our collective future,” says Glenn Greenwald.

Hillary Clinton and the Democrats blamed Russia for the released of documents by Guccifer 2.0, the DNC emails and the Podesta Emails released by Wikileaks. Julian Assange said in an interview that Russia was not the source.

James Bamford, says “Starting with Vietnam, the list of wars the United States has entered with disastrous results continues to grow. Engaging Russia in a potentially endless cyberwar based on questionable evidence will only make it longer. It’s time to find better alternatives.”

Ajamu Baraka was the Vice-president candidate of the Green Party.

Dr. Jill Stein was the presidential candidate of the Green Party in 2012 and 2016.

It’s time to move forward.

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement Wednesday after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States:

“Donald Trump tapped into the anger of a declining middle class that is sick and tired of establishment economics, establishment politics and the establishment media. People are tired of working longer hours for lower wages, of seeing decent paying jobs go to China and other low-wage countries, of billionaires not paying any federal income taxes and of not being able to afford a college education for their kids – all while the very rich become much richer.

To the degree that Mr. Trump is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families in this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work with him.”

“We call on all Americans to stand together with oppressed communities and demand that Trump respect the human rights and dignity of all people in our society and our world. We must stand with people of color, with immigrants and Indigenous people, with Muslims, Jews, LGBTQ people, women, and all whose rights are threatened. Solidarity must be our guiding principle,” says Jill Stein.

Hillary Clinton said during her concession speech, “we must accept this result and then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.”

Hillary twitted:

President Barack Obama and president-elect Donald Trump met on Thursday, November 10th, 2016, at the White House.

After the meeting, Obama said “I have been very encouraged by the interest in president-elect Trump’s wanting to work with my team around many of the issues that this great country faces and I believe that it is important for all of us regardless of party and regardless of political preferences to now come together, to work together to deal with the many challenges that we face.”

“We discussed a lot of different situations, some wonderful, and some difficulties. I very much look forward to dealing with the President in the future, including counsel…Mr. President, it was a great honor being with you and I look forward to being with you many, many more times in the future,” said Donald Trump.

“The Democratic Party has to be focused on grassroots America and not wealthy people attending cocktail parties.” and “You can’t be a party which on one hand says we’re in favor of working people but we don’t have the courage to take on Wall Street.” Twitted Senator Bernie Sanders.

Sanders also twitted: “This is America and we aren’t going to throw out 11 million people who are undocumented. We’re not going to turn against Muslims.” and “If Donald Trump takes people’s anger and turns it against Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans and women, we will be his worst nightmare.”

Civil rights leader and author, Ben Jealous says “The resistance begins today.
We must build the most robust movements we have ever known to defend our rights and those of our neighbors, protect our planet, end poverty, and shift the world away from war and towards peace. “

Jonathan Tasini, says “First, the Clinton machine must be rooted out of the party. A quarter of a century is enough time to understand that its ideology has failed the American people.

Second, the Democratic National Committee has to be turned inside out. The disgraced and deposed chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is only the worst symptom of this wider truth. The party has lost hundreds of state legislative seats, Republicans now control two-thirds of state chambers and have a comfortable majority of governorships (who will determine redistricting in 2020). They have a historic margin in the House of Representatives, will continue to run the Senate and, thus, likely put a Trump-stamp on the Supreme Court.

Third, we need to run targeted primary contests broadly and across the board to replace elected officials who don’t want to see a more open, vibrant and inclusive party. The Sanders movement has shown we can raise the money to fund challengers — and they are ready, by the thousands, to compete.

With these changes, and drawing from the energy of many great activists, a new Democratic Party can be revitalized. The progressive movement, in all its elements — advocates for labor, environmentalists, and civil rights of all stripes — can shape that future.”

“Going forward, Democrats might as well shoot the moon with aggressive Sanders-style social democracy. There is, almost literally, nothing left to lose,” says Ryan Cooper.

Join Bernie Sanders and Support Keith Ellison for DNC Chair.

You cannot be a party which on one hand says we’re in favor of working people, we’re in favor of the needs of young people but we don’t quite have the courage to take on Wall Street and the billionaire class. People do not believe that. You’ve got to decide which side you’re on. That’s why Bernie Sanders supports Rep. Keith Ellison to be the next Chair of the DNC:

“We must also do everything we can to elect Democrats in Congress in 2018, and to take back the White House in 2020. We need a Democratic National Committee led by a progressive who understands the dire need to listen to working families, not the political establishment or the billionaire class. That is why I support Keith Ellison to be the next Chair of the Democratic National Committee, and why I hope you’ll join me in advocating for him to lead the DNC.” – Bernie Sanders

I support Bernie Sanders for president in 2020. Would he run again? Bernie Sanders told The Associated Press in an interview, “Four years is a long time from now. We’ll take one thing at a time, but I’m not ruling out anything.”
