Video Weekend 06-16-2018 (12 videos)

This online video compilation for enriching weekend watching presents news and sharp analyses over a wide spectrum of issues, among these: wrongful government spending; oligarchy; disaster capitalism (such as is currently ravaging Puerto Rico); better health in China than the U.S.; burial of the Bernie Bro Myth; the establishment’s smoke and mirrors; the race to the bottom; voting, guns, and healthcare in Australia, and an expert analysis of the “Democratic” Party’s psychology.

 

I. Government Spending

Bernie speaking in the Senate about “our” government’s blank-check war industry spending ($716 billion – more than the next ten countries combined while always whining about the deficit when it comes to helping American families in trouble):

A comment left on Youtube: »“Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.” Psalms 82:3-4«

Why we “Can’t Afford” Nice Things. When billionaires and their politician shills tell us we can’t afford nice things like healthcare for non-billionaires, it’s not because the government is poor (after all, it spends avishly on the war industry and on tax cuts for the billionaires) but because the billionaires siphon off the government money into their own coffers and they don’t want it to go elsewhere:

V. Smoke & Mirrors

Fake Charities and Humanitarian Foundations. The thieving oppressive oligarchs like to make themselves look good with charities and also appease and co-opt people by pretending that organizations are in place that take on humanity’s problems when in reality they only white-wash the oligarchy and its cruel empires. So, is it any wonder that only crowd-funding supports truly helpful organizations, candidates, and alternative media (sadly way too little, in part because of these false flag organizations giving the impression that we underprivileged folks don’t have to sacrifice our few hard-earned dollars)?

Ending Note: It takes me at least 100 hours of spare time each month to research and write news updates and analyses and work on my book. Please widely share links to these articles, so this work is not for naught. You can also help in other ways (including much needed financial support). Only together can we change this messed-up world. Let’s do it! 🙂
