I. The People’s Awakening

We, the people, want real and meaningful change unrigging the system that cureently keeps getting rigged worse every year. Remember our awakening in 2016 when one candidate FINALLY gave us hope? It is important that we realize one candidate can’t fix the corrupted system for us all by him- or herself. What we need is a new party or a people’s coalition that transcends parties.

For stirring our memories, watch this clip from 2016:

So many people marching in the streets during the DNC convention in 2016. When have they last done that for a political candidate in our country? And Bernie’s giant rallies, tens of thousands strong. Hillary couldn’t even fill high school gyms. And to think how many more there would have marched in Philly during the convention if they could have afforded the trip! Those who could came and chanted:

  • Feel the Bern!”
  • Nominate sanders or lose in November!”
  • Hell no DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary!”

Another clip worth watching again might be: Claudia Stauber was live.

 

Rod Braña shared the below video on Facebook:

… and wrote:

Two years ago the people lost, Trump won. Since then, the two major parties have not changed. We need to continue to build on the coalition that supported Bernie Sanders to coalesce into a formidable new party, which is what most Americans want, much like the “Morena Movement” in Mexico coalesced into an unstoppable political party that in six years won the presidency.”

 

II. Reality

What’s truly happening with Russia, The ME, our government budget, our (nonexistent) democracy, capitalism and socialism…:

To hear more from Brian Becke , who really impressed me with his knowledge and clarity, you may visit Sputnik News or Liberation News (or its Youtube channel), or Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL)

 

III. Raving from the Top

Screaming and ranting instead of thinking and understanding. Raving to defend a creed that benefits the few while ruining our country. This is the kind or reaction with which I, too, have been trolled lately by self-defending ravers from the top or their boot-licking authoritarian zombie followers stuck in the pharaonic creed that ruins our country:

IV. Fascism

Fascism is lurking in every society, lying to fight corruption when being the most corrupt, smearing weak groups as ‘lazy’ parasites i order to redirect the abused people’s rage, arguing to overturn corrupted governments while fortifying the wealth-government marriage… It’s been brewing especially in the Republican Party and the Tea ‘Party’, then Trump’s demagoguery, but also the “Democratic” Party has played with it (remember Clinton’s “super predators” and Obama’s bailing out the banksters with your and my money?). Get to know fascism better to recognize and stop it:

V. Democracy

Thoughts about democracy (from three months ago):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Jimmy Dore, Direct Democracy & Michael Allman / The World According to Jesse “)

Note: The swiss people’s veto makes a lot of sense. If blockcain voting can indeed be better trusted than the current forms of black box voting (vote counts hidden inside machines you and I can’t look inside of) I really don’t know.

Great quote: We have a mob deciding everything now. It just happens to be a very privileged mob whose interests are completely divorced from and aligned against the lower 80 or 9% on the income scale. It’s been interesting watching all the bootlicking authoritarians come out of the closet.

Comment: Jimmy Dore suggests to get rid of the rich-populated and popular vote slanting Senate. I think a better idea would be to replace the current Senate with a People’s Senate a la an ancient Greek idea: don’t elect or appoint the senators. Choose them randomly from the population. I’d add, since policy issues can be complicated, maybe only give that Senate a veto vote.

 

VI. Establishment Lies & Corruption

The rich preaching selfish BS:

And now follows a great interview of Noam Chomsky by Amy Goodman in four parts:

Part 1 of the interview is quite good on the issue of U.S. genocide, mass migration, and immigration (continued also in part 3 that drives home several points):

Part 2 with clips from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) unveils the massive lies & corruption by the top:

Part 3 deals with leftist revolutions being undone by corrupted leaders and neoliberalism:

Part 4 goes right to the heart of the “elite’s” corruption, destroying the world to make stuff a few more bucks into their already overflowing vaults and preventing democracy, as well as our mass media’s disservice:

VII. Rigged U.S. Elections

The alleged “left” and “right” parties work together to cheat voters. We voters need to work together in turn (and do have options):

VIII. Not Enough is Not Enough

Resisting Trump is not enough:

IX. The Public Brainwash

People’s believes have been meddled with a lot, and how to deprogram the cultists:

X. Political Revolt

Ending a 100 years of corrupt rule. A lot more is possible than we are led to believe:
