Last weekend, I featured Lee Camp a lot (including a “So, who is Lee?” segment sharing a more personal interview with him). This weekend, a lot of great Jimmy Dore videos piled up, most of which I didn’t have the time to include in yesterday’s video weekend compilation. To repair that, here are the ones I couldn’t include yesterday but would have liked to. They are some of his best. If you missed them during the last few days, I hope you have the time today to watch them. Enjoy! Especially #2 is superb!
I. Good one: Behold the lock-step march of the establishment’s propaganda-spewing Big Media monopoly, spiked with their script-reading talking heads (all massively overpaid so they won’t question their treacherous work). Jimmy reminds us how this propaganda army was enabled by Bill Clinton and the neoliberal Fake-Democrats, out to destroy the last vestiges of democracy together with their Republican buddies while pretending to protect it. The work of two corrupt political gangs… pardon me… “parties”:

II. Excellent one: Upsetting the apple cart. Tim Canova, who challenged utterly corrupt Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2016 and – by all appearance – was cheated out of the race with election fraud just like Bernie Sanders, has left the “Democratic” Party to fight Wasserman Schultz from the outside since fighting from the inside was made impossible by the corrupt party bosses. This led to a really cool conversation with Jimmy Dore about our rigged elections (and the Russian phantoms) with some hard facts:

The point: when retaking democracy from within the “Democratic” Party is impossible (because of systemic criminality in the party leadership), then the fight must be brought from the outside.
III. Significant one: The Third World country known as U.S.A. can’t afford to equip schools and pay teachers above a poverty wage:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Oklahoma Teachers Strike Grows Stronger “)
Note: I can add a little to that. Not only have teachers in many states seen no pay raises for over a decade, but when I worked as a teacher (one of my many careers) back when the Great Recession hit (A.K.A. Wall Street and the banksters sucking the blood out of our economy to enrich themselves further), I’d have earned some $5,000 or $6,000 less the next year, had I stayed in the school district! Yes, teachers have been taking huge cuts to their wages and benefits for many years to keep schools afloat as the school budgets kept getting cut! Furthermore, schools adopted the custom of discontinuing new teachers after their first year (either not renewing the contract or driving them out by means of horrible treatment) in order to keep paying only entry salaries and make the lame excuse to their county and state supervisors that their students’ scores had stopped rising (a demand established by the No-Child-Left-Behind Act) because of changing staff or “bad” teachers whom the oh-so-heroic principals are busy exchanging among schools in something like a game of musical chairs. “Oh, I can’t get good teachers, but look how hard I am trying, replacing 25% of my teaching staff each year…” How long are these kinds of things to continue? The number one factors in successful schooling, according to many studies, by the way, are supportive parents and long-lasting teachers! Just so you know.
IV. Great summary speech by Jimmy Dore followed by more great stuff:

V. The media war. Youtube (nowadays owned by Google!) reverses its former support for alternative media:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “YouTube Admits Not Notifying Subscribers & Screwing With Algorithms “)
Gist: So, it’s not just demonetizing and silencing popular alternative media channels anymore, but also suppressing new ones from coming up — while boosting the corporate establishment media whose only task (as you might know by now) is to befuddle us with the establishment’s propaganda and trivial or misreported news (i.e. the real fake news).
Little tip: if you don’t blindly click on those mass produced propaganda and lamestream news pieces with which the corporate media flood the welcoming Youtube platform these days, but instead actively seek out alternative channels, you still get desirable notifications from Youtube… so far, at least.
Ending Note: It takes me at least 100 hours a month to research and write for this site and work on my book. Please widely share links to these articles or help in other ways, so this work is not for naught. Donations are really great, too! Thanks. Only together can we change this messed-up world. 🙂
