1. Global Neoliberalism vs Democracy and Common Good

Neoliberalism, Climate Change, Migration: George Monbiot in conversation with Verso ~ Verso Books

 

2. Biden & D Party Corruption

Establishment Hacks Deny Establishment Colluding Against Bernie ~ The Jimmy Dore Show

 

3. Bernie & Socialism Tradition

Richard Wolff: The Mainstream Still Doesn’t Understand Socialism ~ The Michael Brooks Show

Comment: Grabbing money is not the same as earning money.

 

4. Medicare for All: More Rather Than Less Jobs

Healthcare jobs would replace and surmount (healthcare-denial-targeted) paperwork jobs:

Medicare For All Would Create Jobs and Raise Wages Says New Study ~ Kim Iversen

 

5. Social Security: Fake Panic & Bankster Looting Strategy via the GOP

Our corrupt major party rulerships always align with the billionaire royalty and their vicious corporations – whether they are manufacturers allowed to send our jobs overseas or banks allowed to draw interests from everything – through issues where evil strategies and tactics become party agendas. The major parties overlap in some of them and specialize in others. One GOP specialty (you may remember Ronald Reagan hitting working people with the FICA tax and G.W. Booh (uhm… sorry… Bush) campaigning across the country for privatizing Social Security) is the privatization of Social Security. It is nothing but an attempt to suck more money out of our pockets and justify it with a false narrative, as always:

The Truth Behind Social Security’s Surplus Exposed ~ Thom Hartmann Program

 

6. Right-Wing Boosted Bully Culture

That’s what right-wingers do: protect the establishment and status quo by diverting people’s anger away from their oppressors and towards each other instead, splitting the people into bullets and their scapegoated victims. And they LOVE to do this to the children. This story sadly reminds me of the infamous Hitler Youth.

Trump Inspires a New Generation of Bullies ~ Thom Hartmann Program

 

7. Economy Destruction by the Cheatful CEOs

Why Is There a Boom in CEO Resignations? ~ The Real News Network & Bill Black

 

8. Economic Update: Pensions Fraud, More or Less Government

Set to start at Pensions Fraud in Capitalism:

Economic Update: When Stale Debates Distract ~ Democracy At Work

Amazing: 300 years of debating whether government should or should not interfere in the market.

Note: The New Deal = the government intervening to help every family cope with aging and unemployment and ensuring living wages and providing jobs.

Good point: Having lords ruling us is the problem, regardless of whether they are private lords (aristocrats or capitalists and their managers) or government officials and bureaucrats.

 

9. The Justice Charade of the Assange Case

A foreigner living abroad and not working for the U.S. accused of American treason on total fake claims, held in a high security prison without any verdict, barred from his lawyers even in the court room, and his case being judged by a corrupt judge married to a corrupt husband whose corruption was exposed by the defendant who is so blatantly denied his civil rights and anything even remotely comparable to justice:

Yanis Varoufakis: “They’re trying to destroy Assange’s soul and body for doing journalism” | DiEM25

A little more can be learned in this recent On Contact episode where Chris Hedges interviews a not always very clearly talking editor of Consortium News. Especially, that the only help Assange gave Chelsea Manning computer-wise was how to download music and video games. The weird juggle of different laws/treaties also is made a bit clearer than in other reports encountered so far. I have set this video to start where it becomes special. Overall, I find this interview to get better as time goes on:

10. U.S. Election Fraud

U.S. of Systematic Voter Suppression

Ralph invites filmmaker, Robert Greenwald, to talk about his new film, “Suppressed: The Fight to Vote” ~ Ralph Nader Radio Hour

Nice Nader Quote (from the late part where things incl. Bernie & Super Tuesday get discussed): “If you want more Hillary Clinton, vote for Big Business Biden.”

Super Tuesday, Election Theft, Polls vs Machine Vote Counts vs Exit Polls…
Lee Camp and Eleanor Goldfield discuss the Super Tuesday Debacle, the corporate media collusion with the “Democratic” Party’s primaries rigging, and our country’s heavy election fraud practices:

12. DNC: Some DNC Insights (Convention Chaos & Ruling Top)

Unfortunatley interviewed BEFORE the Super Tuesday, so less up to date. Still interesting insights about the awful 2016 and coming 2020 convention:

Nomiki Konst previews how convention chaos will play out ~ The Hill

 

13. D-Party Insider on Bernie vs Biden, Electibility, & the 2020 Election

Bernie’s Labor Message Has Always Been His Winning Message ~ Nomiki Konst

BTW: Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are important states to win for the general election.

 

14. Supreme Injustice Court

Not very well done report and interview, but important issues, a good number handled well enough to make this clip OK to watch and share:

15. World (Chile)

 

Chile Footage: A look at anti-government protesters

Only footage, no report. What it’s about: The U.S. oligarchy ran a violent fascist coup in Chile (on 9/11, 1973) giving it its mass-murdering dictator Pinochet and a thorough neoliberal (“liberal” what a joke!), i.e. corporatist, system washover. People from the grassroots are finally rising up, having had enough of the destruction of their lives.

Chile: Fire and tear gas as anti-government protesters hit Santiago ~ Ruptly

 

And here comes a surprise turn: Authoritarian rulerships tend to use entertainment and sports to pacify the people they oppress and exploit, or they even use these tools to split up the people. In Hispanic countries soccer is a big tool for this. But – surprise, surprise – now it is the huge soccer fandom that rises up against the brutal government, hah hah:

Chile United: Football Fans Fight Back ~ redfish

A potential conclusion: you can’t push the people against a wall or over the cliff forever without them eventually striking back.

 

16. World: Bolivian Coup

 

Even U.S. Media now Admit Having Lied Calling Bolivia’s Legitimate Election Fraudulent

… thus to justify the fascist military coup after the clean October 20th election:

US, EU & OAS caught meddling in Bolivia election ~ RT America

 

Not just Bolivia. Let’s think about election fraud in the U.S.:

The latter is in the final segment of this clip. A reminder that we have had a not elected president installed before, and it may happen again. That’s how rotten our oligarchic system marauding our country and the rest of the globe is.
