A weekend review of what happened in the Iowa Caucus this week and how our “democracy” gets commonly rigged these days and a little on what to do about it:
|Side note: Since I am not making a living by these postings (despite an option to donate or ‘tip’), I can rarely find time to post during the week. Hence this segment covering what I would have liked to post about earlier this week was going to become part of the Wakeful Video Weekend compilation. However, this would make the number of videos in that posting overly super-yuuuuge. So, today I am posting twice.|
I. The Iowa Caucus (a.k.a. Circus)
Awesome Rally in Iowa
THIS IS HOW WE WIN: SIOUX CITY RALLY WITH AOC ~ Bernie Sanders (Jan 27, 2020)
- Nice point by Moore: We gave so much to our country (and the D Party). But what did we get back?
- AOC’s point on fighting for the weakest as a the way to fight for us all (very good stand!) reminded me of Jesus’ “many who are first will be last, and the last first”. (I regard Jesus as one of history’s first recorded leading grassroots activists for socio-economic-political justice, later re-painted as some superstition-preacher (religionist) by selfish preachers and aristocrats creating status-quo-supporting religions to boost their own standing) — Our movement: All for one and one for all.

Oh… and did we get results from the first election process in the primaries this year, the Iowa Caucus where Bernie was so clearly leading? Well, you may have heard a little about some reporting “difficulties” although the corporate media are mostly ignoring that the Iowa Caucus ever happened:

Slick (though more kind and peaceful than I would be about another cheating attempt) comment at the start of a NH rally:

Analysis of Iowa
Basically a nearly all-white state (therefore not a top stte for Bernie who is most stronly allied with working poor people where non-whites have much higher percentages)… supporters of losing corporate candidates regrouping i a caucus (where regrouping is possible) behind corporate Pete Butt-Gig (who nationwide has hardly any chance of electoral success)…

III. How to Deal with Planned Cheating
One thing to do: create a landslide with which to outrun the planned cheats:

IV. Iowa (how it works) and Whole U.S. Democracy Screwup
Your Democracy Sucks! Caucuses and Conflicts of Interest ~ NonCompete
One important point: Conflict of interest must be treated like bribery-financed-fraud (because it leads to it). Conflict of interest in politics must be barred and punished when it isn’t.

I’m hoping these sort of shenanigans will stop after Iowa, but the greed of the DNC is such that I’m not optimistic. Eventually it will get the best of them, but we need to plan to thwart them. Power to the people!

Just like back in 2016, the “Democratic” Party is working hard again, at all levels and together with mass media corporations, to prevent Bernie from the nomination, even if it may ensure another loss to Trump. The “leadership” corrupticians in both parties don’t care nearly as much about the presidency (or the health of our country and planet) as they do about remaining in their parasitic millionaire minion positions serving the robber billionaires and thus gaining millions of wealth plus status and a warped weird self-esteem when playing so evil a role.
Therefore they will continue to do all they can to prevent progressive change that betters the lives of the “unwashed masses” that we, the people, are in their eyes.
