Best subscribe and share with others, so the efforts I make can serve enough people. (I lack time for social media) Thanks. 🙂

1. Biden Review

#1 Example: Promised Fair Drug Prices Also Abandoned

A good example of how we keep getting cheated by corrupt politicians (in this case Biden):

Biden Abandons Pledge To Lower Drug Prices ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Apr 30, 2021)

#2 Broader Biden’s Fake-Goodness Review

Our mass media keep praising him, for example for a useless speech held in Congress. Let’s review his campaign speeches and lack to keep his promises (plus his ancient lies and campaign plagiarism):

Washington Post Officially Stops Counting Biden’s Lies ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Apr 29, 2021)

2. People’s Party: Also Good Criticism of Biden and Neoliberalism and Beyond

Yes, we definitely must build a people’s party. I only add that we also need to build a people’s movement that holds all major politicians (esp. Congress) and parties to account for the American People; this as both a ground for a people’s party to stand on and a protection of it from coups; plus also a safety belt against corruption or senselessness seeping in anywhere.

3. Rehabilitating Criminal Politicians

Recently Biden, currently G.W. Booh (a.k.a. Bush), soon Dump (a.k.a. Trump)…

4. Dealing with Capitalists’ Threats

I think I previously shared a similar exposure of real possibilities like these from Richard Wolff before (or possibly wrote something similar myself). But for anyone who isn’t yet clear about capitalists’ bluffs and people power via people-controlled governments, should listen to this. In short, when business owners threaten to leave to another state or country, we can grab what they abandon and keep running it, not let them raze their American factories for example (but turn them into worker co-ops instead), not letting them flood the American market with cheap-labor or slavery-made reduced costs products shipped from places like China (either simply disallow this import or hit it with big import taxes). So much for rich robber barons wanting to suck more wealth from our American market while escaping taxes or proper wages. All we need to learn is to look beyond family connections into community solidarity, shared prosperity, FDR’s New Deal or an even better 21st century new deal. And we must force our politicians to serve us again, instead of the robber barons. Yes, this requires some degree of movement organization. Not at all impossible, though.

5. Internet Trolling: Russiagate is Really USgate

Throughout history, common practice of evil lords has always been to accuse scapegoats for evil things they themselves were doing. Unsurprisingly, this is currently common practice in our United States, kept under firm control by a (large global) oligarchy that keeps pretending we have still a democracy and no real home problems, but only scapegoats like foreign countries and immigrants to worry about. Who is actually still so blind to still believe any of this? Well, sadly, some people still do, being busy with their daily struggles and getting information about their country and world from rigged mass media plus additional censored and trolled social media. My friends, those of you who are still under-informed and misinformed, please spend a little time to wake up and look around, and ask yourself what claims actually make any sense. Like: are foreign forces or inside-our-country forces better able to mess with us? Are immigrating fellow workers or our corporate CEOs and big business owners the ones who ship our jobs to China, cut our wages and benefits, kick us out on the street after replacing us with machines, deny us healthcare, force us to give up our homes, and so on. This thinking shouldn’t take a lot of time to recognize the lords’ practice of messing with our perception. And, yes, as is revealed in this episode, mangling our social media to play with our heads doesn’t largely come from far away Russians who have their own country to worry about. It naturally comes from greedy and narcissist creeps in our own country – our true enemies.

6. Economic Update: A Green 3rd Party for the U.S.

Segment 1: The waste of money flow to the rich and the need for a mentality wakeup among the working people after decades of being brainwashed into seeing rich thieves as brilliant heroes and worker unions as crap (I should add that of course many of our unions were being infiltrated and corrupted turning them into actual crap (example: teachers unions in my experience, taking lots of money from teachers but doing nothing to protect their employment)).

Segment 2: Richard Wolff talks with the Green Party’s former presidential candidate Jill Stein about the need for rebuilding the by now utterly destroyed American democracy and for a people-representing (third) political party to fix an economy which is just brutal to everyday working people (as well as deal properly with the climate crisis).

7. Pharma Profit Makers Block Proper Fighting of our Pandemic (incl. Bill Gates)

For them maximizing their personal profits overrides the humanity’s need to overcome the corona virus. Therefore, no permission for other companies to make more of the vaccines to overcome the global lack of them. And, indeed, how do a tiny number of billionaires like Bill Gates get to act like kings of the world deciding what health crisis help we get or don’t get. Were any of them ever elected by us in an age of supposed democracy? (So, if you are a capitalism fan, do you persist to claim that capitalism is in support of democracy?)

Krystal Ball: Bill Gates Is LYING TO YOU On Vaccine Patent Protection ~ The Hill (Apr 28, 2021)

Side note: Saagar Enjeti and Krystal Ball are wrong presenting that Bill Gates as a savor of millions of lives. No, I read and heard that his oh-so nice pharmaceutical help in African countries has in reality been a use of poor Africans as human guinea pigs for drug testing. (Drug testing with lab animals is a high expense by pharmaceutical companies. Make it cheaper and you raise profits. But to use humans cheaply like guinea pigs is supposed to be moral merely because press released as help given to the poor?)

8. Racism is Used to Make Capitalism Appear Fine

Just like immigrant-demonization is. Well explained. Not merely used as political scapegoats to distract from our mafia-style rulers at the top of politics and economy but also as a safety belt for many other common workers during economic crises, so that many of those can get through these crises not hurt so much as wanting to revolt, but instead consider capitalist economies OK because the frequent victims are kept out of sight and/or blamed for their troubles as portions of our society ignored and/or vilified.

9. Talk of RJ Eskow with Jeremy Corbyn

A desirable interview of Jeremy Corbyn at RJ Eskow’s The Zero Hour. To me it started getting nicely past the introduction was at 21:02 where you may want to skip to if you already know Jeremy Corbyn who was Bernie Sanders’ British candidacy equivalent.
