Political Awakening Video Weekend 08-05-2018 (14 videos)

In this weekend’s video compilation, Paul Jay, Leo Panitch, Amy Goodman, Thomas Frank, Thom Hartmann, Chris Hedges, Barrett Brown, Stacy Herbert, Max Keiser, Aaron Maté, Stephen Cohen, Richard Wolff, The Rational National, Jimmy Dore and others go into astute System Analysis and discuss topics like Obama & Clinton Crap, the Putin Panic, cruel capitalism, climate change and its denial and anti-science-propaganda, Healthcare for All, the idiocy of the well-to-do, and how we can freak them out (real FUNNY!!!), and the deathblow to investigative journalism. (sorry for the delay, I was sick)  

 

I. System Analysis (esp. via Obama case study)

The corruption built into our system (both balance sheet demands and self-blessing mentality). Leo Panitch and Paul Jay discuss Obama’s Mandela lecture. Obama asks for the impossible: a world where the super-rich voluntarily give up “a little” until there is no more massive inequality.

Part 2 of 2:

II. The Fake-“Democratic” Party (esp. Obama & Clinton Crap)

The Clinton-led “Democratic” Party’s betrayal of the New Deal and working Americans:

A bit old but still relevant for those who still fall for the “Democratic” Party’s insincerity:

III. The Putin Panic

IV. Capitalism News

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Richard Wolff and the title: “Economic Update: We Can Do Better Than Capitalism“)

 

V. Climate Change & Anti-Science

Those trying to ensure their own comfortin our corrupt system commit crimes against humanity as businss as usual. Amy Goodman led a discussion of why and how our mass media deny reality (100 times as much Big Money meddling as in othercountries, for example):

VI. Healthcare for All

… would save a lot of money, accidentally admitted by bribed opponents who then warp the angle of looking at it to make it look scary and opposite to the parts of the public who let themselves be brainwashed by establishment crooks. Plus how great healtcare is in Canada (leacing out how much that frees people to accept or drop any job or go self-employed or small business because people like Canadians don’t ever expereince how hard life is for working Americans because of our for-profit health coverage system… one easily change thing that holds us captive, ruins countless American lives, bankrupting, enslaving, and killing us in huge numbers…):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Rational National and the title: “Libertarian Study Shows Medicare-For-All Saves $2 Trillion”)

More on this. Uhm…, btw, just don’t call this Democratic Socialism. It’s well described by Jimmy but correctly called Social Democracy:

More on this (history & current situation):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Thom Hartmann and the title: “If Harry Truman Had His Way With Medicare For All Charlene Dill and Countless Others Would Still Be “)

Some stats, research, and state level considerations:

VII. VW Idiocy of the Well-To-Do

Fearing and preparing for avoidable or totally off-the-wall unreal catastrophes while ignoring the real problems and how they could eliminate them:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Max Keiser, Stacy Herbert, and the title: “Keiser Report: Apocalypse is Coming? (E1260)”)

Comment: This is one reason why we, the disenfranchised majority, must take the hoarded power away from the big money hoarders and their good money supporters, AKA the oligarchy thatdenies us sensible democratic issue management.

 

VIII. Humor

Hahahahahaaah:

Betsy Devos’s Yacht Horror Strikes Fear In 1%

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jimmy Dore and the title: “Nice to be reminded of simple things any of us can do to our callous oppressors… :-)”)

 

IX. Journalism

The final deathblow to the fifth estate, free speech, investigative journalism, meaningful journalism… the rise of the absolute police state, the absolute power of the global ‘elite’:
