I. Economic Update: Going from Crisis to Crisis

Windows on the past & present:

II. The Neoliberalal Con Job

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “ON CONTACT: A History of Neoliberalism, Part I”)

  • The results of 30-40 years of neoliberalism: 8 families own as much as 50% of humanity, we live in a Mafia-economy and under Mafia-politics, and fascism is being propped up to prevent a people’s revolution, even a peaceful people’s revolution which would solve all evils – even for the top.
  • ~11:30: Why do social programs get cut? The rich, in order to preserve their unearned wealth, want to shrivel government spending that might draw taxes from them. Not of course spending that is profitable to them (like military spending), but spending on the population.
  • When did our current trouble start? Mostly in the the 1970s when the rich got together and conspired to impose neoliberal rules and ideology on us — with the Business Roundtable, the Chamber of Commerce, “think tanks”, buying up and controlling the thereby no longer free press and mass media, lobbying and bribing politicians to rig the system for them and push traitors onto the Supreme Court…

 

III. Corporate-Made Death to the Economy

… and a huge government giveaway to the richest man on Earth. Let’s not forget that jobs and customers’ incomes are a vital part of any economy, the part being destroyed by large corporations and the corporate state (corporate-bribed-and-controlled governments):

IV. Profound Economic & Political Insights

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Global Capitalism: The Economic Consequences of the Election – What Can We Expect? [November 2018]”)

  • Much of this stuff you have heard here before, but there are some precious pearls strewn throughout this speech, so I will guide you through this video. In the first part of the video Richard Wolff gives more details on Amazon’s evil deals, in case you want to hear more. The speech gets th most interesting for me at those stops:
  • 31:27 min: interesting insider insights. (a little on Amazon, much on unions, subcontracting to fake high wages, professional PR liars…)
  • 1:22:32 min: democracy. Why love it in public affairs but not at the workplace where we spend most of our adult lives? Why give up our liberty at work? How are CEOs and othr billionaires different from King George?
  • 1:32:27 min: the value of our elections.
  • 1:37:42 min: the sham of our elections.

 

V. Winning Elections is Not the Only Thing

Accomplishing something is what really matters (like Medicare for All and a healthy economy, for instance). What does it matter if a party wins that doesn’t deliver (because Big Money pays them not to), or that delivers the wrong things (like even more tax breaks for the rich and world-wide wars for billionaire arms dealers’ profits). This video mostly analyzes the R&D Party and their voters:

VI. System Report

Chris Hedges being interviewed rather challengingly, pushing him to his best explanatory performance:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The Collapse of the American Empire?”)

 

VII. American Poverty

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Alabama Has The Worst Poverty In Developed World According To UN Report”)

Note: This video was made shortly before the 2017 special election for the United States Senate in Alabama (arising from the resignation of Jeff Sessions to serve as U.S. Attorney General). So, this wasn’t part of last week’s midterms.

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The story of American poverty, as told by one Alabama county”)

Poverty in LA (insufficiently explained, though):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “In LA, poverty on Skid Row defies US’ humane reputation”)

And why hurt Americans desperately go for fraudulent politicians when they are left out of consideration by others:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Why the poorest county in West Virginia has faith in Donald Trump | Anywhere but Washington”)

More on the systemic poverty in our parasitic economic system:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The Working Poor and Homeless in the USA”)

Quote: They [the American working poor] are refugees in their own country.

Fitting comment by Graham Elwood (sharing this clip fast forwarded to his punchy closing words):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Alabama Has Poverty Like 3rd World – The Political Vigilante”)

Quote: “Large sections of the United States are like third-world countries. Let that sink in. — And it’s because of a four-decades long corporate coup. — Do not be diluted for a second thinking that the Democratic Party is is gonna fight this; that it is the resistance. They’re part of the problem. The Republicans are evil, and the Democrats are not that much better. In some ways they’re worse, because they pretend they’re the party of the people. No, they’re not. No, they’re not!”

Note: If you missed it, you can visit my series Vapid Lives of Destruction about the super-rich to see the amazing contrast.

 

VIII. U.S. Poverty Politics

Our vote-gathering corrupticians not only don’t help us out, they pretend we don’t even exist:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Trump Admin LIES To UN, Says Poverty In America Doesn’t Actually Exist”)

 

IX. Clueless U.S. Billionaires

Here is one of our clueless billionaires (Bill Gates) rambling on about African poverty, completely ignoring the large and growing poverty in his own country, and blabbing along the heinous libertarian philosophy that poverty is the result of lacking individual education rather than caused by a parasitic economic system that made the likes of him so rich at the expense of others and against which no level of education, talent, and skill can protect you (because you have to compete for a few good jobs and positions with lots of others who are also educatd, talented, and skillful… and eventually younger):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Living in extreme poverty”)

 

X. American Dream History

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Lewis Lapham: Can America Survive the Rule of a “Stupified Plutocracy”?”)

 

XI. U.S. Election Fraud

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: ”[133] Election Fraud Special Report!”)

  • 13:12 min: “After this past general, in today’s New York Post the city controller is saying that they have to break up the New York City Board of Elections.”
  • Comment: Dangit! They should have done so after the 2016 primaries heist and prosecuted these public enemies.

 

XII. “Legal” Criminals Angling for the Next Crash & Bailout

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Federal Reserve To Further De-Regulate Big Banks & Trump’s New Regulations On Asylum-Seekers”)

 

XIII. Our Psychopathic “Leaders”

… in both mainstream parties (we should rather puke on our ballots than check their names):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Veteran’s Wife Heckles Bush & Biden At Medal Ceremony”)

 

XIV. The “Elite’s” Secret Move Against Free Speech & Public Interest

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Exclusive: WikiLeaks Lawyer Warns U.S. Charges Against Assange Endanger Press Freedom Worldwide”)

 

XV. Trump Fatigue or Fake-Outrage Fatigue

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Lori Harfenist and the title: “Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 tanks at box office”)

 

XVI. U.S. War & Terror

An ex-marine’s report on our terror on the people of other nations:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for TheRealNews, Greg Wilpert, Lyle Jeremy Rubin, and the title: “An Ex-Marine’s View of the US ‘Forever War’”)

 

Don’t miss Part B of this Video Weekend: a really amazingly insightful speech by Chris Hedges, not only analying our present and past but charting ahead into the future!
