Major videos you shouldn’t miss, especially on these three main issues: (1) the D-Party’s developing 2020 primaries fraud and need for a people’s political revolution, (2) the healthcare profiteers’ “choice” fraud to rob you blind and oppose Medicare for All, and (3) the insanely huge and growing income and wealth inequality that turns our entire world into one gigantic fraud.

1. Life by Human Spirit

Charlie Chaplin’s amazing speech for humanity coupled with modern video footage, all the more touching:

You, The People | Bernie 2020 ~ Legacy Zero
(If it gets deleted, maybe try this Effbook link where it was also stored: https://www.facebook.com/patrick.lindsey.372/videos/10223095271469714/)

A reminder: In his last phase of life, Charlie Chaplin was exiled from the U.S. and had to die abroad. Our horrible masters have been taking over our country and world for generations. You can read his amazing speech (and a little about it) here: https://www.charliechaplin.com/en/synopsis/articles/29-The-Great-Dictator-s-Speech

 

2. Nevada Victory – Finally the Numbers we Need

Bernie Sanders with Crushing Victory in Nevada!!! ~ The Young Turks

Viva Nevada!!! 🙂 Still, as the following video will explain, an absolute majority win like this will be needed in total to maybe have a chance to overcome the D-Party rulership’s plans to cheat Bernie – and thereby the American people – like they did back in 2016 (and even most woke people only know the tip of the iceberg of that (find out more here!)):

 

3. The 2020 Election Fraud is Under Way

The 2020 D-Party Primaries Deceit (& need for a People’s Party)
OR:
Why We Need a Massive Political Revolution from the Bottom

Remember how Bernie won the 2016 primaries but corporatist corrupt $Hillary Clinton was nominated instead? (if you are ill informed, you may have been duped by the corporate media into believing that $Hillary won, never learning about not only massive voter suppression but the far less widely known vote count tampering). Well, the cheat for the rich and against the American people is well under way again, not only in Iowa, In this clip you can learn, if you don’t already know, where the D-Party is heading. The clip is set to start at this critical conversation (of course, you can wind back to the start for other interesting stuff skipped over):

9. Wealth & Income Inequality (evilly insane levels nowadays)

Evil Inequality: Jeff Bezos Again

Rather than help the homeless that he helped to create, Jeff Bezos just bought a “home” (really a palace with a private city park and private golf course in expensive Beverly Hills) for $165 million, which for him is the equivalent of a median income working person opening his wallet and slapping a mere 75 bucks on the seller’s table.

Jeff Bezos’ New House Will Make You Sick ~ The Young Turks

So, let’s do a brief calculation: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median weekly earnings of the American full-time wage and salary worker were $936 in the fourth quarter of 2019 (link to the BLS’s PDF file https://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/wkyeng.pdf). Let’s assume that full-time work still means 40 hours per week (rather than lots of unpaid over-time hours). So, if for Bezos $165 million are the equivalent for the working person’s $75, then Bezos’s income is 165000000/75 times higher. That’s 2.2 million times. So, the hours a median income working person would have to work in on week to be at that level of income, would be 2.2 million times 40 hours. That’s 88 million hours per week. Do you have 88 million hours available per week to work? Actually, even if you didn’t need any time for sleep, commuting, eating, restroom moments, or – let’s not even think about that – raising kids or helping crippled old parents… you obviously don’t. One whole year only holds 8766 hours (365.25 days * 24). So… a median income worker could definitely not earn King Bezos’s $75 equivalent in a single week. To earn Bezos’ one-week income with honest median income work would require a median income working person to work 10,039 years without one moment for sleep or anything else but work. More than ten thousand years of uninterrupted work. Does anybody still think that such insane billionaire wealth and money flow is honestly earned rather than extracted from the res of us?

BTW, in all my hard-working life, I have only been lucky one single year to roughly earn up to that median $936 per week working income! And I am far older than the millennials who tend to think they are the first generation to be screwed. Our rampant old age poverty is still being kept largely undiscussed in our culture where robber billionaires are glorified and poor people shamed into keeping their suffering secret.
