I. AOC: Wow, a Congress Person Exposes our National Immorality

… and a great speech by a Canadian pointing out what should be obvious to everyone but some of us are still blind to:

II. Even Elder White Americans Waking Up to our National Immorality

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Candle Hour Tv and the title: “WHAT DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTERS ARE NOW SAYING NOW”)

 

III. MLK’s Secret

Frequent visitors of this site probably know this already, but it doesn’t hurt to bring it up again once in a while, like that time of the year he gets celebrated in a sanitized (censored!) fashion:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Graham Elwood (The Political Vigilante) and the title: “MLK’s Socialism Kept Hidden By Corporate Media — The Political Vigilante”)

 

IV. Economy: Public Spending

The news that really interested me was the bit right at the start (to which I have queued the video here):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Richard Wolff (Democracy At Work), Bob Hennelly, and the title: “Economic Update: Politicians Faking It”)

 

V. Climate etc. Crisis: Getting Mentally Ready

I have queued this clip to start where it gets into more depth:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Thom Hartmann and the title: “The End of Ice & the Destruction of our Planet (w/ Dahl Jamail)”)

 

VI. Climate & Toxic Water: Fracking Out (also: Presidential Wars)

The crimes by corporations and our “elected” corrupticians:

Comment: The second part of this episode deals with U.S. presidents making war disregarding the constitutional requirement that only Congress can declare war. To note for non-politics-wonks: the William Barr mentioned is a former United States Attorney General under the Bush I regime and recently toted by Trump to be made Attorney General again.

 

VII. Banking Conversation

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Laura Flanders, Nomi Prins, and the title: “Revolution at the Federal Reserve: Nomi Prins and Thomas Hanna”)

Points: The banks bail out ten years ago changed nothing for us. Next time better things should be done.

 

VIII. Niko House on AOC

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Niko House, AOC, and the title: “BREAKING: Democrats Threaten To Exile Ocasio-Cortez”)

 

IX. AOC’s Marginal Tax Proposal

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Billionaires COWER At Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Tax Proposal”)

Cenk Uygur: “What if we helped one another instead of only being selfish?”

X. The Billionaire’s Bana Republic: U.S.A.

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Thom Hartmann and the title: “How Do We Stop the Billionaires from Turning “Us” Into a Banana Republic?”)

 

XI. The Meritocracy Falsehood

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Thom Hartmann, Richard Wilkinson & Kate Pickett, and the title: “How many of our population have an IQ of less than 85?”)

 

XII. Medicare for All – Getting Watered Down?

Note: S.1804 = Bernie’s Medicare for All Act of 2017 (which had some weaknesses compared to H.R.676, such as not covering everybody e.g. in long term care) albeit I seem to vaguely recall some improvements by Bernie on eye and dental care if I am not remembering some sleep time dream. We do need to make sure that the Medicare for All we need (or even better Medicaid for All) be fully-fledged, not watered down and undermined by the profit seekers of the healthcare industry. And the id number swapping of the long standing golden standard of Medicare for All Bill honestly looks to me like a sweeping under the carpet, an attempt to stop conversations about it, to confuse people:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the Jimmy Dore Show and the title: “Democrats Rewriting Med4All Bill In Secret”)

Conclusion: A bait and switch seems to be in progress. We can never trust the corrupticians, no matter how sweet they talk. It’s their actions that speak! And we must wrestle the decision power from their hands and their puppet masters – corporate executives and the billionaire aristocracy. We live in a sociopathic system destroying our lives and the future of humanity. Enough is enough!

XIII. World: Venezuela

Very Good Summary Analysis

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jamarl Thomas and the title: “Ben Norton Discusses Venezuela, Maduro, & U.S Coup”)

Takes on Venezuela

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the Jimmy Dore Show and the title: “Democrat Opposes Venezuelan Coup – Smeared As Russian”)

Venezuela Discussion

Pretty good info for about the first half of this discussion (although the “summary” first Venezuela video above has more):

XIV. Upcoming Candidates, Anti-Corruption & Election Integrity Moves

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Brigida Santos, RT America, The World According to Jesse, and the title: “Progressive Women of 2020 & Government Shutdown with Jimmy Dore”)

 

XV. Political World Built on Bernie

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jamarl Thomas, Bernie Sanders, and the title: “BERNIE SANDERS Set To Announce 2020 Presidential Run | This World Is Built On Sanders”)

Once again, we need to watch out that candidates not only talk the talk but walk the walk.
