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

1. News (Immigrants, Injustice)

Immigrants: Biden lets uninvited immigrants (even refugees) get enslaved.

Biden gives slightly more (yes, more, not less!) money to ICE, and he lets it throw uninvited immigrants (like refugees begging for asylum) into prison, into private prisons which enslave the prisoners (the latter report starting a minute later at 3:30):

Injustice: A corporation takes over our criminal justice system.

We have had here reports on this before. This is a good additional one summarizing the corporate crime against the American People, the crime of taken over a court from which to persecute people who defend us from corporate crimes (bankrupting people with huge trial costs and using pretexts for baseless false charges and pre-verdict punishments (like you may remember what Assange has been tortured with for many years now – imprisoned without even a verdict, the way the criminal lords treat us nowadays whenever they hate someone’s guts or want to eliminate a competitor), denying a jury and eventually holding a kangaroo court show trial). Another catastrophe happening when when criminals are in charge of our country.

2. Welfare vs UBI

Not a very good news report, but something to start the thought process with – the welfare system set up to bar help rather than give it when needed.

3. Brief Look Into Our Political Corruption

A short segment worthy to hear again. Yes, the poorer people are, the more defenseless they are. And a middle class was formed as a barrier between them and the rich lords. So, now that the middle class is shrinking from also having been increasingly drained by the thievish lords, the reaction by the lords to us – the people – becoming ever more frustrated and upset, they push to smear and burden mostly the fairly defenseless poor.

4. Housing: The Rich Robbing our Homes – The Anti-American Dream

Sigh. What I and other open-eyed people have been predicting.

6. World: Israel’s Colonialism

The Israeli-Palestinian ‘Conflict’ Doesn’t Exist. ~ Katie Halper (Jun 8, 2021)

Note: Of course, America is also the outcome of settler colonialism (plus slavery). Guilty feeling realizations like this should lead us to determining a better world, fight for a Good Life for All, because historic crimes can not be undone, but a benign present and future can be built. The only way to turn bad things around. When done honestly, not as fake justifications for empirical actions that have also been our past. So, how about starting Medicare for All, UBI, a universal basic dividend (all of us earning from the stock market, not just a handful of rich lords), and cap taxing excessive wealth and income to remove both poverty and corrupt super-richness (that always leads to buying up the governments)? And thus not giving good lives to all descendants of our history in our country, but also becoming the positive example for the rest of the globe to follow. Wouldn’t that be a fantastic turn around to be happy and proud of?

7. World: Latin America Insights (Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Columbia, Mexico…)

Inequity divisions, colonialist oppressions, solidarity among corrupt corporations across nations, right-wing coups and mass media propaganda, dying poor standing up, people’s campaigns winning elections, the global south denied corona vaccines…

8. Police: Cops Framing Innocent People as Felons

Unaccountable. Harming rather than protecting us. Grandmother Michelle Lucas hit twice with an absolutely insane charge:

9. Young People Power for Change

An interesting conversation between the American People’s elder hero Ralph Nader and a youngster in grass root activism from children and adolescents. (Yes, elsewhere there is also talk with a representative from an apparently quite moral corporation, such as hardly exist anymore, even though in early American law making they had been required to be, laws long rolled back and eliminated letting corporations become utterly corrupt and sociopathic and world destroying; but I didn’t catch much useful information from those talks — the talk with the activist youngster OTOH increased my hope for desperately needed change – only too bad that Medicare for All wasn’t mentioned in those conversations; this to me being the number one aim to have these days (ideally linked with rich tax and a UBI), anyway this episode has some good stuff if listened to closely enough) I have set this video to start where the 1st talk with the activist youngster starts. The second talk comes at 1:24:04 .

10. Making War Instead of Solutions

People are driven into low-level crime by monetary desperation, poverty, denial of opportunities. “Terrorists” are often partisans defending their homeland or revolutionaries struggling for a better world (with good or insane goals), driven onto this path by a highly faulty world we should solve, like healing a wound instead of trying to snip it away. Demonizing and assaulting people who have been driven onto paths that hurt others by the hurt done to them only adds to the hurt that drives them that way. Healing the unhealthy origins of such path taking makes a kot more sense and would help many others of us as well.
