Read the brief descriptions and pick the videos to watch and make your ears flutter. Political awakening and education of the first tier. Share widely and subscribe to notifications, so you don’t miss future ones.

Stars: Paul Jay, Cornel West, Richard Wolff, Harriet Fraad, Chris Hedges, Nick Braña, Abby Martin, Brian Becker, Jimmy Dore & Co, Thom Hartmann, Debbie Lusignan, Ron Placone, Kyle Kulinski (“Secular Talk”), Marc Steiner, Bill Black, Mike Papantonio (“America’s Lawyer”), Jamarl Thomas, and more.

Topics range from corruption through our thieving economy and rigged politics, actual (not fake) election fraud, fake news (Putin/Russia), a cure for both Trump Derangement Syndrome and Trump Denial Sundrome, as well as successful soundbite debating, to deep thoughts on what it means to be human, political humor, and the dawn of the People’s Party.

At the very least, don’t miss the final three: Cornel West’s profound speech, Jimmy Dore & Co’s humorous stage performance, and a conversation between none other than truth teller Chris Hedges and (future president) Nick Braña! 🙂

 

I. Treason, Corruption, & Jingoism

… and conman-politics. Truthing Trump and looking at jingoism that poisons people’s minds in both major party camps:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Paul Jay, Aaron Mate, The Real News, and the title: “LIVE Q&A: Who’s Committing Treason? “)

Quote from Paul Jay (and Aaron Mate) discussing fake liberals like Bill Maher: “This [jingoism] is in the liberal mentality as much as it’s in the right-wing conservative mentality. One has this vision of defending Christian values and the other one [our liberalism] because we’re such liberals over here. Of course, it’s not true here either. When [people like] Bill Maher say they are on OUR (American) team, we’re on the team of gerrymandering. We’re on the team of voter rights suppression. We’re on the team of suppressing our constitutional rights… ”

II. Kleptocracy Got Us Trump

How the thieving banksters defrauded the nation and thereby also paved the road for Trump and the GOP’s electoral success:

III. Russiagate & the Deep State

Where Russigate inditements come from (careerist spooks, not facts):

IV. Our Race to the Bottom

Reagan’s race to the bottom. Rapid Find out when our downfall took up speed:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Thom Hartmann and the title: “Caller: How do I explain how Bad Reagan Was?“)

 

V. Economy

Incredible news from the capitalism nightmare:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Richard Wolff, Harriet Fraad, and the title: “Economic Update: Hidden Failures of Capitalism”)

Note: I wish he’d explain HOW rich donors hide behind numerous small donations. Matching promises? Ordering their workers to donate?

 

VI. Socialism

The crazy U.S. history of socialism and communism (socialism isn’t the same as communism, btw). Marx didn’t invent socialism, btw. Oh, and have you wondered where the Espionage Act came from which Obama abused to silence and torment whistleblowers? Or why socialist parties and movements have existed and done a ton of good in other countries but been oddly absent in the U.S. in our lifetimes, even though socialism echoes the words of our founders? Learn a lot about this from Abby Martin and Brian Becker:

VII. Immigration Truth

The heart of our immigration issue with hard solid facts:

VIII. Establishment Corruption

Remnants of the rule of law. The Attourney General of the U.S. obstructing justice and warned to be held in contempt of court (by that dying remnant):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for TYT and the title: “Judge Threatens To Hold Jeff Sessions In Contempt Of Court“)

 

IX. The Actual Election Fraud of 2016

Debbie Lusignan … branded as the Sane Progressive (a brand she has distanced herself from because of the public warping of political labels that serves to brainwash large numbers of the public to for example equate socialism with despotism and then defend truly despotic fascism as being something else) closely watched the 2016 election theft and explains some of it in this retrospective video:

Here is the Youtube link where Debbie posted a number of follow-up links underneath.

How to win against establishment propaganda in soundbite mudslinging fights on MSM shows:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Mike Papantonio (“America’s Lawyer”) and the title: “Another Scandal for Wells Fargo & False Claims Act for Whistleblowers“)

 

XIII. The Thieving System

One of Jamarl’s best speeches:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jamarl Thomas and the title: “Wage Slave Plantation Amazon Forces Employees To Work DESPITE FIRE EVACUATION“)

 

XIV. Being Human

Cornel West’s spot-on deliberation about being a responsible, dutyful, and wise human being and the humanity in us that we must nor forget, the human spirit we must resurrect back:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Dr. Cornel West Best Speech in 2018 “)

Nice quote (among many great things said): “As brother Heschel used to say, if you view life as a gold rush you end up worshiping the golden calf and redefining the golden rule as he or she who has the gold will rule.” (he is probably referring to rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel)

 

XV. Humor

Great show on stage by Jimmy Dore & Co to end this video compilation with an uplifting high note:

XVI. Movement for a People’s Party (MPP)

Oops! Not ending, yet. Another must-share video just popped up: Chris Hedges talking to Nick Braña on the dawn of an American People’s Party. Despite being 26 minutes short and my many prior posts on MPP, this clip sports some facts reporting and thoughts you probably haven’t heard before. Reasons for hope:

  1. Cornel West’s speech is must-hear for all Americans considering our mindset that we must re-humanize. Chris Hedges’ interview of Nick Braña adds new information to the People’s Party movement process. Jamarl Thomas very neatly summarizes the ramifications of capitalism and wage slavery. And there are many more videos I find truly important and great. But, rather than spend time reading my praise, I recommend to try them all. 😉
