I. Push for Medicare for All

1. Jimmy Dore Update on His M4A Vote-Force Proposal

Jimmy Trending Because AOC Against Fighting for Medicare For All. ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Dec 15, 2020)

2. Save Our Lives! Push for M4A NOW!

Support Grows For Leveraging Pelosi Vote for Medicare For All ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Dec 16, 2020)

3. Push for M4A Discussion with Former Bernie Press Secretary

… Briahna Joy Gray (pretty good discussion):

FORCE THE VOTE! The Case for Forcing a Vote on Medicare For All! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Dec 17, 2020)

4. Calm Research re. M4A Pushes

Should AOC Force A Vote On Medicare-For-All? The Big Online Debate ~ The Rational National (Dec 15, 2020)

The “Rational National” also recommends reading this article: Here’s What Medicare For All Supporters In Congress Can Actually Do (by David Sirota)

This article proposes useful actions that can be additionally taken (yes, additionally, not instead of). The probably biggest additional one (that people in the streets and calling the White House could also massively support) seems to me this one: “Schedule a vote on a resolution demanding Biden use executive authority to expand Medicare: The American Prospect has reported that thanks to provisions in the Affordable Care Act, President Joe Biden will have the unilateral executive authority to expand Medicare coverage during the pandemic. The House can pass a resolution demanding that he immediately take this action. A resolution like this should be a no-brainer.”

5. M4A Floor Push Not Just Performative but Effective

Basically, it’s simple. Establishment members are trying (as usual) to spin our heads, but it’s really simple: People are dying! Politicians are either on the side of the people or on the side of the inhumane establishment (‘elites’), corporate gangsters, lobbyists, mass media heads…

AOC In Hot Water – Why Jimmy Dore’s Plan To Get A Medicare For All Vote Could Work ~ Fiorella Isabel on “Niko House & The MCSC Network” (Dec 17, 2020)

6. Morality Reminder by Cornel West

DR. CORNEL WEST Interview: Force The Vote! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Dec 18, 2020)

So many alleged “Christians” being anything but Christians (opposing rather than following Jesus): 4:33

7. Thousands Killed by Evictions During Pandemic

Evictions Are Violence: Millions Could Lose Homes Amid COVID Pandemic If Federal Moratorium Expires ~ Democracy Now! (Dec 18, 2020)

8. A Little Insight in American Poverty Even Before the Pandemic

Something that is often overlooked by people – especially those whose minds have been played with by the corrupt top ‘elites’ – is the poverty trap created by both our economic (capitalist) wage-slavery system AND a corrupted social safety network. Working people get propagandized that poor are poor by laziness and helped overly much, that helping them gets non-lazy working folks taxed too much, and so forth. This is done to split us up so we can not defend ourselves against the class war from the top. Well, here you can hear a little about the actual money traps people get trapped in, rather than income taxes imposed on those who are outside the trap (until the corrupt system we live in robs them of their jobs, healthcare, and homes).

9. Interesting Conversation on Capitalism, Socialism, Market Economies, Politics, Co-Ops…

Long indeed (over 2 hours), but with interesting spots all over:

All Things Co-op S3 Special Event: A Conversation with Prof. Wolff ~ Democracy At Work (Dec 10, 2020)

At 1:05:30 cool thoughts about market economies: Plato and Aristotle discussed the harm of the ancient Greek market economy remarkably similar to historic socialist thinking and the considerations of today.

10. The Ruling (Criminal) ‘Elite’ Demolishing Tiny Homes Made for Homeless (and their possessions)

Yes, sadly, Lee Camp regularly dilutes his brilliant reports and insights with needless rants and comedy attempts, but this is the best video report on this creepy event that I could find:

Breaking News: Tiny Homes For Homeless Demolished ~ Moment Of Clarity with Lee Camp (Dec 16, 2020)

11. Congress Numbers & The Multi-Step Nature of Fights for Change

Set to start where this clip comes to the point:

Jimmy Dore vs. AOC | What Everyone is Missing ~ Status Coup (Dec 18, 2020)

II. People’s Party

12. People’s Party Approves the M4A Push | Populism being Truly American

Thomas Frank here tells us the term populists was invented in America during the late 1800‘s representing a true people’s party fighting elite corruption back then. Today’s crappy use of the word as a synonym for demagoguery is a result from the establishment’s fight-back against people power.

Note: Last planned MPP National Call before the new year.

III. People Division

13. Liberal-Fascist Alliance

This clip cuts to the bone most sharply at 13:48, so you can skip there when you’re too short on time:

The Liberal-Fascist Bargain ~ NonCompete (Dec 13, 2020)

14. Revolution of Values vs Historic Rewriting

Why American History Whitewashes Radical Figures ~ Second Thought (Dec 18, 2020)

IV. Money Rule

15. Money Made to Divide Us

Privatization of the world to give it all to the rich and enslave the rest of us while also preventing us from fighting back by dividing us with over-taxed middle class and lazy poor fiction:

What You Need To Know About MONEY. ~ Steve Grumbine & Jimmy Dore (Dec 13, 2020)

16. Example of Money-Corrupted Mentality

Not statistically informative. Only one person example. Still, it can give some insight into the top of our dungheap pyramid society:

Punching Down on Workers During Economic Crisis. ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Dec 15, 2020)

17. The Money Trap Strangling us During the Pandemic (Work Loss, Rent Gauging…)

Krystal and Saagar: RENTPOCALYPSE Is Here And It’s WORSE Than We Thought ~ The Hill (Dec 8, 2020)

18. How to De-Corrupt Banking

Set to start at 21:51 where this Ralph Nader Radio Hour starts comparing private and public banking and argues for making our banking and Federal Reserve public services rather than the private capital staling schemes they currently are:
