The vision for Evergreene Digest is to be the preferred one-stop on-line source for information and perspectives that major news entities exclude from the present day American conversation. The Internet makes it possible to loosen the grip on big media by taking the news into our own hands. We readers-turned-reporters can restore integrity to the nation's single most vital conduit for democratic participation, our media.

Tell the Electoral College electors: Honor the majority vote and reject Donald Trump

  • The petition to electors to the Electoral College reads:
  • "Donald Trump is unfit to serve as president and did not win the support of the majority of the American people. Hillary Clinton is set to win the majority of the vote by more than 2 million votes despite widespread voter suppression and the FBI’s interference in the election. Honor the majority vote and elect Hillary Clinton on Dec. 19."

https://d2omw6a1nm6pnh.cloudfront.net/images/Stop-Trump.pngDecember 14, 2016 | We are gearing up to fight the dangers of a Trump presidency with everything we’ve got. Today, we have one last, long shot at preventing the most dangerous and hateful administration in our nation’s history. We hope you’ll help us fight for it.

On Dec. 19, the electors to the Electoral College will cast their ballots to elect the next president. In many states, these electors are not bound by the state’s total vote and can choose to vote for whomever they want with little or no legal consequence.

Hillary Clinton is likely to win the majority vote by 2 million votes or more.The electors have a civic duty to elect the candidate chosen by the people, and they have a moral obligation to elect the one who is most fit to serve.

CREDO Action empowers 4 million progressive activists to pressure decision-makers on change we want to see from opposing war, to relentlessly defending reproductive freedom, protecting our environment and a healthy food system, fixing our broken democracy, fighting for an economy that works for everyone, and more.

  • Clearly, there is little chance that (the electors) will (vote their consciences) if Americans don’t demand it. The Constitution allows for, and requires, civic involvement. We need to stand up so profoundly that the electors feel protected and supported for voting their conscience. By December 19th, those who feel an itch to speak up, but haven’t done so, are going to regret it.
  • Fortunately, resources exist to help us, right now.

https://secure.consumersunion.org/images/content/pagebuilder/Industry-telling.jpg  12/04/2016 | A lot of wishful thinking is happening in America right now. “Maybe Trump the President will be different than Trump the Candidate.” We already know this is a fallacy. Trump the president-elect is exactly the same as Trump the candidate. “Maybe he’ll suddenly become more responsible and balanced.” “Maybe this is the kick in the pants America needs.” “Maybe he’ll be impeached.” But the most damaging wishful thought of all is: “Maybe I don’t have to do anything — maybe the electors will choose to appoint someone else, on their own.”

The Electors should. But they won’t. Not without political pressure the likes of which America has rarely seen before. Which means we all need to be motivated. Well — how about the safety of our own lives, and the lives of everyone we love? Because let’s not fool ourselves. Anyone with a rudimentary appreciation of the powers of the president of the United States knows that the stakes are life and death. Pretending otherwise is wishful thinking.

   http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/evergreenedigest.org/files/Editor%20Comment%20graphic_0.jpgSalon Editor’s note: In the weeks since the increasingly ambiguous presidential election of 2016, there has been considerable discussion about exactly how we choose our presidents and why we do it this way. It seems like a useful moment to go back to the source, in this case Federalist Papers: No. 68,” otherwise known as “The Mode of Electing the President,” which was written by Alexander Hamilton.

Sunday, Dec 11, 2016 | The Mode of Electing the President
From the New York Packet.
Friday, March 14, 1788.

To the People of the State of New York:

The mode of appointment of the Chief Magistrate of the United States is almost the only part of the system, of any consequence, which has escaped without severe censure, or which has received the slightest mark of approbation from its opponents. The most plausible of these, who has appeared in print, has even deigned to admit that the election of the President is pretty well guarded. I venture somewhat further, and hesitate not to affirm, that if the manner of it be not perfect, it is at least excellent. It unites in an eminent degree all the advantages, the union of which was to be wished for.

Alexander Hamilton was an American statesman and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He was an influential interpreter and promoter of the U.S. Constitution.

Instead of 'hope and change' Obama gave progressives Trump

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/evergreenedigest.org/files/Politics%20Banner.jpg

  • Obama’s presidency helped set the trends for Donald Trump to amplify, with relative impunity, the oligarchy and corruption that has come to embody the federal government.

12/05/16 | President Obama’s overall presidency was a letdown for progressives expecting the hope and change his 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns promised. In many areas, where Obama had the opportunity to deviate from the status quo, he fully embraced it instead.

Under his watch, the United States maintained an interventionist foreign policy spearheaded by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. In Obama’s first 5 years the United States exported $30 billion more in weapons to foreign governments than George W. Bush did in 8 years. These weapons fueled unrest and violence in the Middle East.

"It's All Collapsed": New Chomsky Documentary Details Death of American Dream

Friday, 09 December 2016 | In this documentary, recently released on DVD, Noam Chomsky gives an overview of the miasma of the current political, sociological and economic situation of the United States. Filmed over the course of four years, Requiem for The American Dream shows Chomsky detailing in 10 points his sweeping understanding of the seemingly intractable inequities and lack of a robust democracy we find in our society.

The filmmakers ensured that this would not be just another talking head discourse: It is both innovatively animated and trenchantly informative, an incisive dissection of the disastrous impact of the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few.

Peter Hutchison, Kelly Nyks and Jared P. Scott directed Requiem for The American Dream.

November 15, 2016 | “Our Glorious Leader has ascended to God Emperor. Make no mistake about it: we did this. If it were not for us, it wouldn’t have been possible. ... [T]he White race is back in the game. And if we’re playing, no one can beat us. The winning is not going to stop.” -- A revealing quote from the Neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer, which claims to be the “#1 Alt-Right” website, following Donald Trump’s election (Stormfront’s motto is: “White Pride Worldwide” and its symbol is):

And KKK ex-Grand Wizard David Duke couldn’t help but celebrate the part that his white supremacist movement had in electing Trump”. Duke proclaimed the day after the election: “make no mistake about it, our people played a HUGE role in electing Trump!... You arrogant, unthankful, degenerate pieces of shit no longer have absolute power.”
