Those of us old enough may remember the suspected Floridian election fraud giving G.W. Bush the White House in the year 2000 and again in 2004 (when other states lie Ohio joined the fraud, specifically using rigged voting machines). Then, two years ago, there was strong indication that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was reaffirmed in Florida’s Broward County through vote count tampering, and when her opponent Tim Canova asked for a recount or investigation, the Supervisor of Elections – Brenda Snipes – first stalled forever and eventually destroyed the ballots before they could be checked. (I call that destruction of evidence!) Therefore, this year Tim Canova decided to run outside the “Democratic” Party, so he couldn’t be cheated out of the race in the primaries again. Well, he may very well have been cheated in the November election. There are also Floridian voices asking for recounts and elections from other corners (both blue and red), such as the governor himself. Maybe, in this battle for victories, election fraud will finally be exposed? It’s high time that somewhere it gets exposed since it has been growing and growing (and gave us Trump instead of Sanders two years ago, if you ask me — and definitely not just in Florida). It might be Tim Canova’s shining historic moment if he can expose it in his county. I wish him plenty of success. Continue reading “Florida Fake Votes Flourishing”

I. Midterm Election 2018
Too many losses. A few (way too few) progressive wins (only 2 new progressives in Congress):

(which is why we need to take another route)
The party has proven itself immune against takeover from within. Since in 2016 the neoliberal (A.K.A. corporatist, oligarchy-serving, corrupt, getting-rich-through-bribes) party bosses cheated both Sanders and thereby the American People in the primaries, the attempt at a takeover tidal wave from the bottom has transformed into a mere fake “blue wave” used by the establishment to bring disappointed people back into the folds of the corrupt “Democratic Party” and furthermore pacify upset voters with false hopes until, in the end, when it becomes clear how this attempt failed, they will turn away from politics in disgust, giving up their only chance to save their lives, their country, and their world. This is a tried and true tactic which has for many decades proven itself undefeatable. In fact, despite all the energy and passion poured into the takeover attempt, there has only been a single real defeat of a corporatist party baron. Only ONE! (and sadly this single winner has already bent her knee to the party establishment finding herself on such a forlorn post, just like Bernie Sanders has had to make – or believed that he had to make – horrible concessions on HIS forlorn post).

When the corporate state goes full bore (or should we say ‘boar’?), you get a complete reversal of the justice system. Fines, imprisonment, and family separations against weak individuals (such as immigrants and all sorts of poor people) soar while the rich and their corporations don’t even get slaps on their wrists anymore. Examples: In the 1st year of the oh-so-swamp-draining Trump Administration, not only did mistreatments of immigrants (which had already been very bad under Obama) ratchet up to new heights, but corporate fines by the Department of (In-)Justice dropped 90%! By the EPA it even plummeted 94%! Nine more agencies dropped their duty to the people by also shocking amounts. To see a bunch of relevant numbers (and graphics usable as memes), check out this article: ‘Law and Order’ Trump Is Soft on Corporate Crime and Wrongdoing
Or, if you have the time and the guts to see how fully blown our corporate takeover is, you can dig into Public Citizen’s full report (PDF).

(Warning: so many good videos piled up this week that I am planning for a Part B tomorrow). Invitation: sign up for notifications from this site as a rich source for eye-opening and ideas-spawning videos and articles.
I. System Analysis
Global Debt Slavery: The people worldwide has been colonized by the rich corporatists (A.K.A. Neocons/Neoliberals / robber billionaires and their millionaire minions):
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Susan George on Neoliberalism“)
Prophet Ralph Nader’s stunning precognition in 2015:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The Empire Files: Ralph Nader & Abby Martin on the Corporate Elections“)
Noam Chomski Interview on a broad range of issues:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “PRIMO NUTMEG #144: Noam Chomsky“)
Note: The one thing on which I definitely disagree with him is that “the weight of evidence” suggests that Assad launched chemical attacks. Here, Chomski may have fallen victim to the widespread lies dispersed throughout all the major media outlets. It is simply illogical for Assad to shoot himself into his foot that way (prompting hostilities from super powers like the U.S.), even more so when he is already winning anyway. And that the White Helmets which parade through our media as a kind of Middle Eastern Red Cross are actually a branch of the islamist terrorists, one that specializes in creating fake news (such as those alleged chemical attacks), is pretty well documented by now.
Self-declared gods blowing up smoke each other’s a’s while they are screwing us over:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jimmy Dore and the title: “Swamp Creature Scott Pruitt Resigns From EPA“)
“Democratic” Party establishment working to split its own “Democratic” Party vote to avoid progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from winning the election for Congress. Remember how they were gaslighting and voter-shaming us in 2016 (and 2000), blaming those of us who want policies for the people and end the establishment oligarchy for allegedly having gotten us G.W. Bush and Donald Trump? Well, while all this was total bogus in an electoral system so heavily rigged, they sure seem to not hesitate to use the sppiler effect to protect their bribe-paying donors from their own voter base:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Rational National and the title: “Joe Crowley Stays On The Ballot As 3rd-Party Challenge To Ocasio-Cortez“)
III. Systemic Corruption
Jesse Ventura, Brigida Santos, and Richard Wolff discuss the erosion of workers’ rights in America and how our corporatist debt-based economy with lots of welfare for the rich and lots of squeezing for the rest of us leads to ever greater inequality.
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Workers’ Rights & Richard Wolff“)
IV. Media Manipulation
Controlling the people with lies and silencing. Jesse Ventura and Brigida Santos discuss Operation Mockingbird and how America’s most powerful news outlets have been working with the CIA for decades to plant false stories and mislead the public:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jesse Ventura, Brigida Santos, and the title: “Operation Mockingbird & John Barbour“)
U.S.A. = Propaganda State :
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jamarl Thomas and the title: “ALERT: U.S. Funded “Ministry Of Truth” Is Lying On Glen Greenwald; Legally Spreading Propaganda To U“)
V. Economic Reality
Economic reality of protectionism, government subsidies, and oh-so free trade that never was or likely will be:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The deceptive promise of free trade | DW Documentary“)
Our Power Elite’s Corrupt Economy and Political Theater (very insightful speech!):
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Richard D. Wolff and the title: “Global Capitalism: Immigration & Trade War [July 2018] “)
Note: Most important point (which you hear from me again and again, as well) around 33:01 min in, starting with an astute audience comment and continuing with Wolff’s well-put response. And at 40:34 min, he goes over our U.S. experience with it.
A suitable Pruit Epitaph: Poison for Profit. The rich have absolutely no consideration for us.
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Thom Hartmann and the title: “How the Morbidly Rich are Literally Poisoning the Working Class for Profit!“)
VI. Class War
The U.S. Class War (incl. Mortgage Crisis) explained by Richard Wolff:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “How Class Works – by Richard Wolff“)
I’d like to add that, as I calculated and explained before, about half of the income created by all our work (plus the machines and previously made infrastructure and inventions) goes to the small group of the very rich; and if we simply redirected it to us all by taxing excessive income and wealth, we would all have good lives (except in cases of untreatable health crises and such, which we could then also better fight though, by the way).
Some good points made on our immigration situation:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jimmy Dore and the title: ““We Don’t Want Mexicans” Say Young Trump Supporter“)
The running for your life part of Hispanic immigration to the U.S. (the oligarchy hurts people everywhere — and too many dupes among us still believe this to be ethical and for our safety):
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Sana Saeed and the title: “How U.S. Involvement In Central America Led To a Border Crisis| AJ+“)
VIII. Automation (quick idea)
Automation could be a good rather than bad thing if handled correctly. Besides Social Security for All as a financial safety cushion and Federal Job Programs (to fund important tasks the private market does not), an additional (not alternative, but additional) way is a shorter work week:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The Divide: Why You Should Work Less – And How It Could Save The Planet“)
IX. Political Psychology
Culture is only part of our believes and push-buttons. A lot is in-born. We find it among our closest relatives in the wild:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The surprising science of alpha males | Frans de Waal“)
X. Political Conversation
Good conversation comparing the Democratic and Republican gangs… pardon me… “parties” and how to solve our problems. Oh, look at the front picture: more alpha chimps!
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jimmy Dore, Richard Eskow, and the title: “Who’s More Corrupt, Democrats Or Republicans?“)
XI. Political Humor
Neat, humorous conversation on immigration, nativism, elite-privilege, election integrity, people striving to make our country being smeared as extremists and the denied the right to do so when they didn’t pick the right soil to be born on…:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jimmy Dore, Richard Eskow, and the title: “Democrats Are Plotting A “Coup”! Says Tucker Carlson”)
The continuation of the conversation (also has good moments): Should A Tolerant Society Tolerate Intolerance?
Note: Keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow’s Part B (at least 3 or 4 more videos).
