Martin O'Malley in Concord
Last May, I talked to former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley about nuclear weapons. He advocated reducing the number of nuclear weapons, which was great. This time I gave him more information on current plans to develop a new whole generation of nuclear delivery vehicles and warheads.

The Amherst 4th of July parade was a good place to find candidates today. Will Thomas and I talked to former Texas Governor Rick Perry about the $1 trillion spending plan for nuclear weapons. Gov. Perry said he didn’t “have a handle” on the issue yet.

Just before the 4th of July parade in Amherst, NH got underway, I asked former Florida Governor Jeb Bush about current plans to spend $1 trillion on nuclear armaments. Governor Bush said that he wasn’t aware of the plan, but he seemed interested in learning more. I explained plans for a new generation of warheads and delivery vehicles. Bush asked if I had written information and I promised to get it to him at another event.

Martin O'Malley wants to reduce the number of nuclear warheads in the U.S. arsenal, but seems to be under the faulty impression that "nuclear modernization" is a way to save money. Instead, it's a trillion dollar plan that will increase nuclear war-fighting capability and raise the nuclear threat.

Judy asks Sanders about nuclear weapons
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders recently declared his candidacy for President. On May 27, I joined hundreds of people at the South Church in Portsmouth NH for a town hall meeting with the Senator. He answered a number of questions from the audience, and I was able to ask the last one, about whether he supported the $1 trillion dollar build-up of US nuclear forces. It's "all about our national priorities," he said.

A one trillion dollar investment in nuclear weapons surely needs to be discussed. The interests of the corporations that stand to make bundles of cash should not outweigh the need for a stable, de-nuclearized world.
