Here are some very good points made by Jill Stein on matters of the Russiagate witch hunt, the faulty integrity of our elections, and more. I know, her demeanor and bearing (and her doctorate) can turn off some people, as do commonly held opinions that third parties don’t matter (even though third parties have always been the ones to push the people’s agenda, while the mainstream parties have always been the plutocracy’s tool of preventing a people’s democracy), but more people should listen once in a while to what Jill Stein has to say, as she relentlessly advances the issues we need to deal with in public discourse and has been doing so for many years, making her highly experienced and insightful. She is in many ways our female Bernie Sanders.
Bernie was virtually unknown until 2016. I’d really like to see Jill Stein to be discovered by the Amerian People, as well. And while we’re at it, older folks should re-acquaint themselves with Ralph Nader, America’s folk hero until he was smeared almost into oblivion by the “Democratic” Party and excluded from debate by the utterly corrupt CPD (the “Commission on Presidential Debates” which is a joint, brotherly alliance of the GOP and “Democratic” Party designed to ban all other voices and proving that these two mainstream parties in reality work together – against us on the behalf of the establishment – no matter what a show of opposition they deliver). And young people should discover him for maybe the first time. Then, realizing that both of these people’s champions have run for the Green Party, it might make sense to give the Green Party more credit on the ballot on which we absolutely must stop favoring the abominable two major parties with an abused spouse’s dependency attitude that keeps so many from us of leaving them when they clearly don’t represent us and mock us about supposedly having nowhere else to go. Yes, we do have somewhere else to go! Independents and third parties have always been there and been vital in making real change. This idea that you can only chose between pest and cholera on your ballot is a false choice trickery that undermines democracy and that we must no longer fall for.
But back to the current ludicrous smear campaign that suggests that Jill Stein somehow decided the 2016 presidential election (in which the primaries were the biggest hack) and did this as a Russian agent of sorts. It makes no sense. Green votes were not otherwise “Democratic” votes, and the numbers show they did not affect the outcome. And why would a foreign government waste money on a fringe candidate to begin with? Was there meddling in the election? Sure there was, from all sorts of sides, any Russian meddling being only the tiniest part of it. Is it okay to meddle as long as it’s someone in the United States doing it? Shall we overlook and sanctify domestic denial of a functioning democracy while we go hysteric over a Russian tweet? Well, there is so much about this smear campaign that makes no sense, except for the benefits the establishment will gain from any success it has with it, such as prepping for an even bigger smear campaign against Bernie Sanders as 2020 approaches. We must overcome our mass media gullibility so as not to be played so easily anymore.
So, especially if you have allowed the corporate media to befuddle and worry you with their constant Russia-yacking, here you can hear some reasonable analysis from a very smart person who is currently also caught in the net of smearing and “investigating” by the Russiagaters, and therefore has reason to keep well informed on this silly propagandist charade she (and I) would otherwise waste no second on. Her comments on election integrity are also well worth hearing:

Here is the link for the Facebook video version for perhaps easier sharing on Facebook (if its censoring algorithms allow any such sharing anymore).
For anybody who wants to dig a bit more into this issue, here’s an article about the allegations against Jill Stein:
And another: Russiagate (Kitchenmudge) — Great ending quote: “The disease is extreme concentration of wealth, which will always be concentration of political power, regardless of any laws that might try to segregate them.”
That quote hints at what I keep saying: To overcome Big Money in politics for good, we must end our huge wealth and income disparity, and to end this disparity we must cast off our mental shackles imposed by generations of propaganda. People with free minds are a heck of a lot harder to keep enslaved than people with enslaved minds. Hence this blog. Knowledge is power. Spread it around, friends!
