..."This year, among the Kochs’ aims is to spend a projected four hundred million dollars in contributions from themselves and a small group of allied conservative donors they have assembled, to insure Republican victories in the 2018 midterm elections.

Cindy Sheehan is organizing a women's march -- is it time to go back to the Pentagon?


When? She says: "We haven’t set a date yet, but there are some significant dates coming up. October 7 will be the anniversary of the US invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 and the Afghanistan War is now the longest running war in U.S. history.

Also, October 21 will be the 51st anniversary of the March on the Pentagon to Confront the War Makers organized by the National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam."
