1. United States of Police Brutality

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for RT and the title: “Man tased and pepper sprayed in front of his children for filming a police stop in Chicago”)

 

2. The Real Border Crisis

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for C-SPAN and the title: “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Migrant Children and Border Security”)

Also informative (though unfortunately with background music (very bad idea!)):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for C-SPAN and the title: “Members of Congress Testify to Horrific Migrant Detention Facility Conditions”)

 

3. U.S. Military Terror Laid Bare – Short, Succinct, & Wow! ***

Very good points made against oppressive governments and war profiteering.

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for minivanjack and the title: “We Are Being Judged By What We Permit To Be Done”)

Word of caution, though, if anybody is now happily seeking out more from the source of this video: FreedomTaker.com has a strong Libertarian flavor (calling out government power for its crimes but suffering a blind spot when it comes to private-sector bullies and thus ultimately boosting them). The site’s motto of “This site is dedicated to non-violent and race-blind restoration of freedom to individuals who seek it while recognizing the social and economic damage done by those who take the freedom of others.” sadly ignores the “social and economic damage done by those who take the freedom of others” when they are private pharaohs rather than the private pharaohs governmental puppets.

 

4. Weekly News

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Democracy Now! and the title: “Top U.S. & World Headlines — July 15, 2019”)

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for RT and the title: ”‘World fears US as a war-hungry drunk’ – ex-Senator”)

 

6. A Cooperative Economy Alternative

… rather than destructively competitive:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Democracy At Work and the title: “Economic Update: Worker Co-Ops Rising”)

 

7. Psychological Chains: Treating People Like Dirt

… to show them their place in the rigged system:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for John Spritzler and the title: “Why Dogs Have Fleas & Why the Rich Will Treat Us Like Dirt Until there’s No Rich and No Poor”)

 

8. “Left” – “Right” = 0

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Jimmy Dore Show and the title: “Pelosi Sides With Trump-Attacks AOC & Screws Immigrants”)

10. U.S. Election Integrity: Rigging with Impunity ***

Election rigging goes beyond just rigging debates, billionaire-financing campaigns, and throwing voters off the voter rolls. Our ballot and vote counting system is the laughing stock of the world:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for MCSC Network W/ Niko House and the title: “LIVE with Tim Canova – 2018 Congressional Challenger to Debbie Wasserman Schultz”)

Good quote from Tim Canova after explaining how easily our vote counts are rigged: “If they (the bad actors) have the means, motive, and opportunity to rig the elections, why wouldn’t they do it?”

Quote from Craig Jardula: “When the Democrats and Republicans just protect each other what do we do?”

Notes:

  • 2016: Bernie & Green Party’s Jill Stein and then Russiahhh blamed for Trump’s presidency (instead of the people’s anger and despair over their ruined lives, their hate of the guilty establishment, and many of us angry over the DNC’s primary rigging denying us Bernie’s nomination (check the facts and discover he really won the majority of the voters, the losing primary results were manufactured → see: Election Theft 2016).
  • 2000: Nader blamed for G.W. Booh’s (sorry… “Bush’s”) presidency when more Dems voted for GW (according to the official results) and the recount forbidden by G.W.‘s evil buddies on the Supreme Court.
  • So the current hope that Bernie’s landslide will overwhelm the rigging (like Obama overcame the GOP’s 2008 rigging) is not very justified. The reason for so many primary candidates is not only to bring the superdelegates into play but also to obfuscate the planned vote count rigging.

 

11. Police Narrative & Henchmen

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Redacted Tonight and the title: ”[164] Time To Abolish Police?”)

 

12. Lawbreaking Asylum Ban

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Real News Network and the title: “Trump Bans Asylum Seekers at the Border in Violation of National and International Law”)

 

13. How to Handle the Bully in Politics

… and the growth of unconcealed fascism through the channel of the Republican Party… and a number of other interesting issues (though unfortunately with Thom Hartmann being so married to the “D” Party that he always skips “D” corruptician crimes, only pointin out the “R” crimes… at least once does confess the “R”-like “D” Party corruption):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the Ralph Nader Radio Hour and the title: “Thom Hartmann: How To Handle Trump”)

Ralph Nader’s smart remark (slightly rephrased): If, according to Trump, four congresswomen he doesn’t agree with should go back to their ancestral countries, then he should go back to his ancestral Germany where Chancellor Merkel may be looking for a new chauffeur.

Also a funny hint: Trump says he has no single racist bone in his body. So, maybe his tongue is racist and talks independently of his brain and real opinions. So, maybe we should be doubtful of what he says? 😉

Special spots:

  • Starting after the introductory tail end where I place the start here (23:32), there is an interesting comparison between our politics and sports.
  • At 32:23 a good insight on how our unemployment reports are manipulated by the oligarchy to deceive the public.
  • At 35:25 starts an interesting section about mental distress and warping coming from destruction of the middle class, warping that so easily feeds into fascism. (people who have always lived at the bottom are more likely to demand a good life for all whereas people who have always lived above the bottom are more likely to prey on the bottom to keep floating above it)

 

14. Atheists WAY More Christ-Like Than RW-Evangelists

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Secular Talk and the title: “POLL: Atheists WAY More Christ-Like Than Evangelical Christians”)

 

15. Bernie on Ideology

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Rational National and the title: ‘Bernie Sanders: “We Are One World, One People”’)

 

16. Building Empathy & Bridges

… good arguments to address issues at the root level not just the symptoms. And buried in this video, BTW, better not to be overlooked, are vital points on immigration that hardly anybody ever mentions (that “illegal” immigrants usually pay taxes to communities that don’t give anything back to them, for example, or even more hidden: that people who become Americans by choice rather than accidental birth geography tend to love America a lot more than native-born Americans, and are more astutely aware of the high points of our country and people than natives tend to be):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Humanist Report and the title: “Original Justice Democrat Anthony Clark is Back—And Stronger Than Ever! | Full Interview”)

Argument: Most of this was great, but one thing I don’t agree with is the highly divisive proposal of reparations for American descendant of slavery. Why? (A) because it divides the people thus reinforcing the oligarchy, and (B) because it ignores reparations for other descendants and direct victims of abuse and exploitation, such as Irish Americans or those of us who are descendants of feudal serfdom; or those of us who are or descend from refugees or violently displaced (and thoroughly ransacked) people; or the Native Americans whose ancestors suffered genocide, rightfully own this country, and are still being held in “reservations” like prisoners of war, just to mention a few. Picking one group of harmed people and giving restitutions to them while pissing off all other groups of harmed people is no reasonable strategy for a better world. Ending massive inequality with a direct strategy that caps excessive wealth and power, dethroning the oligarchs, and lifts the floor for everybody, enabling good lives for all, makes a lot more sense. We cannot turn back the clock and undo all the evils done in the past and we must not divide ourselves with a musical chairs game of privileges. We must focus on the present and future and aim for a Good Life for All (with no rich and no poor, but everybody well off).
