The People’s Summit

Have you heard of The People’s Summit? It’s a pretty new thing with much work still to do, and it apparently was started by America’s nurses. Bless their formidable hearts, working all their working days in a healthcare system warped by profit-making greed, fighting each day for us in such a warped system when we are sick! And, then, when the corporate-funded, corrupt DNC installed their godmother Hillary over a heretofore little-known man whose win of the primaries they obfuscated with massive electoral fraud and theft, these nurses organized the first ever People’s Summit to give us all a means by which to try and continue the Bernie campaign’s momentum, keep from falling apart into a gazillion of splinter groups withering away in isolation from each other, and enter the long game of changing our country, and perhaps even the world, to what they both should be.  Continue reading

Great Rant About Smearing and Honest Journalism (Video)

Honesty is one of our highest goods. Without it, everything else goes down the drain:

Tim Black is one of those who was smeared by someone who should know better. Thankfully, Tim won’t be discouraged by that. I love his energy and his way with words. More power to you, Tim! And to everybody else: Follow his suggestion to make things right and support independent media instead of corporate media, such as on Tim’s Patreon page or likewise this here site’s recently created Patron Page. Power to the people!

Corrupted World: Brutalizing Citizens who Disagree with Environmental Destruction (Video)

Jordan Chariton has smeared some great citizen journalists (and I still hope he will apologize and resist the pull from the Dark Side), but he also still produces reports worthwhile to watch and with valid criticism of certain establishment powers. Here is a recent one:

Let’s Talk About Betrayal (RP)

I know the feeling. Life is bad enough, especially in a world as rigged by people against each other as ours is. And publishing every day about the insane garbage the establishment dumps on us is not exactly spending quality time. So, lately I often think about slowing down, especially since my small reach hardly warrants all the time I invest. Steven D Grumbine is someone who also works hard at this. Luckily, he has a little more reach and his Patreon account is working, so perhaps he no longer needs to hold down some dumb bread-and-butter job in addition to researching and broadcasting about our mess and ways out of it (or at least not for much longer if you add to it).

I have wanted for a long time to showcase one of his videos. Today, I finally get around to it. This particular video is quite short (because it is truncated), but very passionate and fitting pretty well into my latest string of themes:

You Shouldn’t Have Blind Love for a Destructive Person — Not Even in Politics

golden-calf

All meaningful discourse dies when supporters of a politician react with duplicitous smear attacks, egregious insults, and high-handed derision against anyone who suggests that their worshiped candidate may not be the second coming of Christ — worse when they do so without even taking a glance at the facts or the reasoning presented in the critique. Those supporters should take a moment to go deep into themselves and recall the principles of decency and integrity which they presumably were once taught in their childhood. After all, what does it suggest about the integrity of said politician when said politician’s supporters fail to show the slightest decency and integrity themselves? How can you assume the moral high ground when you do not even manage to mind your manners?  Continue reading

We Need to Hold Corporations to the Bill of Rights

In a recent TruthOut article (Many Americans Don’t Know It, but Their Employers Can Censor Their Political Speech) the valid point was made that “we haven’t enacted laws to require employers to respect employees’ freedom of speech and other human rights. Corporate censorship is much more common than most people recognize. Many employers conduct Internet searches of employees and fire anyone who says something that displeases management. Even more common is the practice of Internet searches of job applicants. Millions of people have lost job opportunities – because a prospective employer didn’t like something they did or said – and they don’t even know it.”  Continue reading

Smears Turning Everything Upside Down – Exposure by Jimmy Dore

I have skin in the game. I get smeared like this, too. When I post an article which challenges a publicly disseminated lie, I am often accused of uttering this lie by one bunch of commenters while others defend the lie calling me a liar without bothering to address the facts or arguments I presented to disprove the lie. When I plead for people to put away their differences and unite behind the issues which concern us all, I am often accused of dividing the people. It’s like accusing fire fighters for the fires because they are seen around them. It’s how people with big megaphones in the corporate media and paid trolls in social media marginalize truth tellers with blatantly false accusations and smears. Truth no longer matters. Only the size of the megaphone does.

People have been gullible for too long. It’s time we all start paying more attention to what’s hidden under all that megaphone noise and media veneer.

Pope Francis and Bernie Sanders both Spot On

money-rules

From one unexpected corner (and one not so unexpected), I just got full agreement on something that I have been marking as the root evil at the heart of our political and socio-economic system for some time — a dark and overlooked-by-most evil which makes our system not only hateful in moral terms but incredibly stupid on a purely objective level. (I will argue the latter point once more at the end of this piece). First, here are the statements of those two luminaries:  Continue reading
