Video Weekend 8-12-2017 (6 Videos): 2 x Jimmy Dore, 3 x Richard Wolff, and 1 x Chris Hedges with Kshama Sawant

Welcome to another political video weekend keeping you safe from dumbing down via spectator sports or corporate “news” casts. As I am buried under a medical family emergency, this time there are few comments from me.

This one starts a bit slow, but about 14:45 minutes into the video it starts getting better and better and eventually really good:

Jimmy Dore on breaking up monopolies – the one swamp-draining act any President can do without congress (are you hearing this Trump?):

A historic review of capitalism and socialism:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Global Capitalism: Capitalism vs Socialism Today [August 2017]”)

Richard Wolff sez: Capitalism = a tiny group of people called employers running the show for a mass of people who are employees. No wonder it couldn’t bring liberty, equality, and fraternity (the high ideals of the French Revolution) – “because at the core of the society, the production of the goods and services without which we can’t live (food clothing, shelter, all of that), right there in the organization of production, there is a tiny group of people, the board of directors, the big capitalist, the owner… , and a mass of people who come to work and do the work nine to five, 5 days a week, until they retire, get a watch and drop dead. Or in a different order some times.” (I’d like to add that nine to five is pretty much a thing of the past by now.)

 

A mix of humor and deep insights into the dirty tricks of our money aristocracy (Hey, did you know how our mega-corporations cheat us out of their taxes through their offshore money stashing?):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Prof. Richard D. Wolff – Capitalism and Socialism have failed. Now what?”)

 

Another good Richard Wolff video. This one is short (and on how, in the U.S., we traditionally blame the victims of poverty and worship those who make them poor):

Going back in time (by about a year), a smart review of the rigged 2016 primaries, back when they were coming to their end, and a prescient suggestion of us having to form a new party:

Hillary Would Have Been WORSE For Us Than Trump

Let’s be honest. The “Democratic” and Republican Party are not extremes of one another! They are almost identical! No true alternatives, at all. And the same goes for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Yes, you read correctly. They all screw us (the American working class people) to enrich themselves and their wealthy cronies. And, there is at least one very critically reason why Hillary would have been actually worse than Trump!

Jamarl Thomas, an unusually smart video blogger who I rate highly, gave a very sharp analysis arguing that the confused ones among us should stop, once and for all, to perpetuate the canard that Hillary would have been better than Trump in the Oval Office. In fact, the exact opposite is true! The very sensible argumentation comes from someone situated on what we, in America, traditionally consider the political “left,” a term which in the past was synonymous with the “Democratic” Party, but today is anything but that. Listen or read (or do both). It’s well worth it.

Here is the video, and below it my own summary and commentary:

Ultimate Analysis of the DNC Lawsuit against the DNC’s Election Cheating

In the corporate mass media, we get manipulation of our minds like when they sow lots of doubt about known facts. For example, when after a long media black-out Newsweek finally wrote about the DNC lawsuit, it kept painting the facts of the rigged 2016 primaries as mere “beliefs.” It’s like writing some people believe it’s snowing. All you have to do is look out of the window and see for yourself. It’s not a belief whether it’s snowing or not.   Continue reading “Ultimate Analysis of the DNC Lawsuit against the DNC’s Election Cheating”

Remembering the November Election with Lewis Black

I dug this up. It’s still funny (and fitting):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Lewis Black on Donald Trump and Election”)

… except for him dismissing Hillary’s criminal acts (example her arms deals and regime change acts). Maybe he’s getting old. Not sure. I haven’t watched him in years since The Daily Show lost traction.

 

Quickypinion: Election Fraud Gave us Trump Because it Put Hillary on the Ballot!

I think, today I’ll take a day off from writing for this blog or spending hours screening videos to share the best ones on here. After all, I should be spending more time looking for my next job, trying to make it a better one than the usual crap, and improving my credentials as an applicant.

Gaslighting and Miscasting Fighters for the Cause as Clintonites

stop-with-the-nonsense

Posts about the DNC lawsuit[1][2] and the current efforts to create a People’s Party have been getting me polemic reactions of this sort: “Another Clintonite is trying to get Berners to leave the Democratic Party so the Clintonite neoliberals can continue to control it? What a shock!”

Here is my reply, which any of you may borrow who are similarly besmirched with (insincere?), illogical, and downright insulting accusations of your alleged insincerity. Continue reading “Gaslighting and Miscasting Fighters for the Cause as Clintonites”

DNC Lawsuit – Election Theft 2016 – And The Evidence

Two days ago, I reported about the class action lawsuit brought against the Democratic National Committee. Funny enough, after all this time and all the evidence, I still get responses like: oh, it’s all sour grapes and BS.

To this I reply: It’s sour grapes or BS only when you refuse to look at the evidence! Continue reading “DNC Lawsuit – Election Theft 2016 – And The Evidence”

There Was No Real Recount of 2016

One again, we have been had.

Jill Stein and the Green Party did us all a favor attempting to get us a recount of the 2016 presidential election in the three swing states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin where some Clintonites try to mislead us into thinking that Stein’s running for office shifted the victory from Clinton to Trump — a complete false logic which relies on the assumption that all who voted for Stein would have voted for Clinton otherwise – an utterly preposterous assumption.

Anyway, what became of the attempt? Continue reading “There Was No Real Recount of 2016”

The Most Important Event of 2016

What’s YOUR most important event of 2016?

Mine is this:

Bernie Sanders introduced us to each other — millions of Americans who know that our system is rigged and will fight for democracy, economic and social justice, and sensible public policies. Continue reading “The Most Important Event of 2016”
