1. People’s Party National Call 2021-02-18

Really great speeches by Nick Brana (on the Texas catastrophe and national crisis), followed by a Texan telling more about Texas, and Carla Welch at 18:12 on how to speak lucidly about the People’s Party:

The People’s Party National Call – 2.18.2021 ~ The People’s Party (Feb 24, 2021)

2. Predatory Deregulation in Texas Hitting People With Thousands of Dollars per Day of Electricity

This Is What Deregulation Looks Like: Some Texans Face $10K+ in Electric Bills, Others Still in Dark ~ Democracy Now! (Feb 22, 2021)

Note: While in standard capitalism businesses take loans and pay them back over years or decades from profits made, now our predators simply demand that their customers in a few days hand them over all that money. Can you imagine a justifiable price of $2500 per day (or month? unsure, but insane either way) of electricity in your home? It’s high time these public utilities are made truly public again (seized from these thieving robber billionaires).

3. Max Blumenthal on Bill Gates, COVID Vaccines, Privatized Public Healthcare, Mass Media Control

What Is Bill Gates Up To? w/Max Blumenthal ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Feb 22, 2021)

4. Slavery, Feudalism, and The Capitalism We Have Had Since

One of Richard Wolff’s best speeches (for anyone who doesn’t get the huge similarity between slavery, feudalism, and the capitalism we have had since them):

Economic Update: Why Capitalism Reproduces Inequality & a Solution ~ Democracy At Work (Feb 22, 2021)

Note: Socialism can be regarded as a socially responsible alteration of capitalism (since it plays with capital a.k.a. money and ownership) essentially the same way to run an economy but merely putting people over profits. This doesn’t need to be run via a state capitalism version run by a potentially dictatorial government (like in the Soviet Union). It can be done to a large degree from the bottom and across the economy by democratizing businesses. Other important changes (like Medicare for All, better pandemic managements, housing security, and expanded Social Security (like a UBI); even a Universal Basic Dividend (that is an economy ownership for all); and a cap tax on income and wealth to end the bribery flow of big money into politics…) can likewise be brought about peacefully and turn our Hell on Earth into a Heaven on Earth, shift from our excessive competition and struggle based on greed and despair to a system of kind and prosperous collaboration, and make a Good Life for All our top priority, an overarching concept which logically also demands an end to environmental destruction and the continued ignoring of our worsening climate crisis.

5. People’s Party Update

There may have been infiltrations already to try and split or misdirect it, plus miscommunications. Yep, fighting for the common good always has hurdles to overcome.

Huge News for Movement for A People’s Party w/ Nick Brana (Web Exclusive) ~ Redacted Tonight (Feb 16, 2021)

Note: Too bad that Jerry Perez may have been an infiltrator (that appears to be the claim made in this conversation), because his publicized speeches sounded really encouraging. As mentioned before, I had been wondering why he dropped out of the picture.

6. Fascist Infiltration in the Deep State

“deep state” = permanent (unelected) state elements like agencies, police, military…
Germany being a good model to investigate about what may also be happening in the U.S., turns out to have had a significant fascist deep state infiltration for decades following the loss of World War II. Since governmental agencies and executive organizations (like police and military) are authoritarian by nature rather than democratically run, they have widely open doors and attraction for authoritarian infiltrators (and fascists are above all authoritarian). Here is a report (with some English talk and English subtitles during German talk):

The Enemy Within: Neo-Nazis & The German State ~ redfish (Feb 18, 2021)

7. Censorship and Brainwashing of the Public

Esp. oligarchy-funded McCarthyite Lies & Dishonest Major Parties:

Jimmy’s Tucker Rant Spurs Hit Piece From Democrat Rag ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Feb 26, 2021)

8. Global Censorship (example: Twitter)

… for the rich ‘elite’ and their profits made from war profiteering and natural resources control.

Twitter Censoring Foreign Policy Criticism w/Max Blumenthal ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Feb 27, 2021)

9. Australian Latest Oligarchy’s Propaganda MSM Boost and Independent Media Squeeze

Honest Government Ad | News Corp Bargaining Code ~ thejuicemedia (Feb 25, 2021)

10. Police Against Accountability and For Profit

Police actions against accountability and constitutional civil rights are presented from this episode’s start. Police profiteering starts to be told about at 12:57 . Result: people poverty trap and forceful anti-democracy

Filming the police is legal, but that doesn’t stop them from arresting people for it ~ The Real News Network (Feb 26, 2021)

11. Texas Proves that the Private Sector is NOT Better than Government

If you have lived your life in the U.S. you have been hammered relentlessly with the elite’s claim that government is inefficient and the private profit-making market is a lot better. Texas, one of the main states run by this unproven ideology and apparently having lots of its folks believe this propaganda, just now – when hit by a climate disaster – proved how false this claim is. This episode is set to start at that point (near the end) since the stuff before strikes me as not very meaningful; but this definitely is (Note: add to this the shocking things the first two videos here this weekend tell us, like $2500 demanded per DAY (or month… not sure which is the actual case) of home electricity in Texas):

Prof. Richard Wolff: A Post-Pandemic Economic Boom? ~ The Zero Hour with RJ Eskow (Feb 26, 2021)

12. Doubled Rich, Flat Poor

… and of course way more poor people now.

Biden Betrays Working People Again – Backtracks $15 Minimum Wage ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Feb 28, 2021)

13. Interesting Conversation with Noam Chomsky

Insights in political manipulation and the lack of progressive politics.

Progressives Must Revitalize the Labor Movement – Noam Chomsky ~ theAnalysis-news (Feb 24, 2021)

Note: The examples he gives about bottom organization and manipulation from the top are really interesting informations. (and this conversation has none of that vote-for-the-lesser-evil support he had switched to in recent election(s) in interviews with im that popped up — in fact, there is here even a hint that he supports the idea of forming a people’s party)

14. Ralph Nader Radio Hour on Robbery by Financial Institutions

Ralph Nader speaking with the former head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Richard Cordray, on issues of the American People being robbed by financial institutions:

Protecting Your Finances ~ Ralph Nader Radio Hour (Feb 27, 2021)

High points:

  • 17:34 – the banks robbing us with their fees (bounced check fees being 20-30 times the costs the banks actually spend)
  • 30:59 : financial consumer protection contact (for when you get cheated or abused) — Link: www.consumerfinance.gov
