1. Texas Targeted by our Tribal Politics

… splitting us, the American People, up into two primary groups pitted against each other, promoting primitive tribal fight instincts that lump all vaguely associated people together into one heap to target with hostility.

Celeb Democrats Wish Harm On Red States. ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Mar 6, 2021)

2. Capitalism as Efficient in Producing Poverty as it is in Producing Wealth

Wolff’s talk about minimum wage (comparing to other countries) makes things somewhat clearer, but I still recommend Universal Basic Income paid by a rich cap tax and Universal Basic Dividend from shifting the stocks representing stolen economy back from the small rich ‘elite’ back to the whole people as far better measures, changes that would put America at the top of the people’s rights hill again.

Economic Update: The System Implodes: Amazon, Evictions, Tax Abuses, & Minimum Wages ~ Democracy At Work (Mar 1, 2021)

3. People’s Party on Our Corporate-Bought “Justice” System

The most shocking thing (shared here before, I believe, because it’s not new to me) starts at 10:04, a mind-boggling warping of legal justice by a big oil company and judicial system hooligans allied with and paid by it, putting a heroic lawyer in house arrest for his having helped some of the company’s victims in their court case (as if that were a crime), turning the concept of legal justice upside down.

The People’s Party National Call with Steven Donziger, Christina Brown, and Chris Smalls – 3.4.2021 ~ The People’s Party (Mar 5, 2021)

4. $15 Min Wage rejection vs UBI

The major progressive alternative media told us this week about “Democratic” Party senators tossing the $15 minimum wage piece out of the current stimulus act’s window. And they criticise it. What is unfortunately left out in their talks about it is that minimum wagr is a double edged sword that combines its good effects with major bad effects, and that a universal basic income is a far far better help for economic health and eliminating poverty. These two videos address this fairly well (while leaving out the proper way of financing a UBI citizen dividend):

1.) from January

Minimum wage vs Universal Basic Income” | How UBI solves problems that a minimum wage can’t ~ PF Jung (Jan 24, 2021)

2.) from over a year ago, nicely short, (but dead wrong on the tax issue)

UBI vs the $15 minimum wage ~ Stacy Sanseverino REALTOR® (Oct 16, 2019)

5. Information Warfare: The Real “Russiagate” is the Exact Opposite

Western Mass Media paid by Deep State (tax money!) smearing Russia, Serbia, progressive politicians (e.g. Corbyn) in the West…

CAUGHT: BBC/Reuters Paid To Do Government Propaganda ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Feb 28, 2021)

6. World: U.S. Gouging Syria

Biden Continues Destabilizing Middle East As Corporate News Cheerleads. ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Mar 1, 2021)

7. “Medicare Advantage”: Corporate Profiteers Undermining Medicare

It Ain’t So, Joe!” ~ Ralph Nader Radio Hour (Mar 6, 2021)

Note: And, as mentioned, 80 million Americans are un- or under-insured (under-insured meaning that one is only nominally insured, paying monthly fees but not getting enough back to afford healthcare). (I am not sure if that includes the millions who lost their jobs and thus their job-attached health insurance during the corona crisis)

8. Biden Opens Trump Era Cages For Migrant Kids

… and hints/thoughts about AOC, Nina Turner, and Youtube.
