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:

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.

What Really Are or Aren’t Progressives

Different people have a wide range of notions as to what makes a progressive. Especially people warped by right-wing media often have an upside-down misconception which sees progressives as liberals and liberals as neoliberals, in other words: the very opposite of progressives. Even progressive-minded people are sometimes so confused, they don’t know they are progressives and perceive the term as a red flag.

Chris Hedges: Corporate Despotism Has Replaced Democracy (short video clip)

As usual, Chris Hedges says how it is. The dissolution of an intelligent public discourse, the rise of sham politics, and the constant mendacious and dumbing-down drizzle from the corporate media, is why we – the awakened people – need to engage in our own media war against the corporate media’s distraction, deception, and propaganda.

Let’s Not Forget: Trump’s Budget Still Looms

Over our fight for decent healthcare, we mustn’t overlook the fact that the conversion of our country into a modern feudal state is still continuing — on many fronts and at a breakneck speed. Continue reading

Thought of the Day: Our Unconstitutional Presidents

There is much hullabaloo about constitutional violations of our newest U.S. president, Trump. Those who are constantly calling for resistance against him overlook that, at least since the G.W.-Cheney regime, all “our” presidents have been violating the U.S. constitution which they were sworn to uphold. The only thing worse is partisan citizens celebrating “their” guy from “their” party for these violations or else looking the other way. This goes for supporters of both gangs… pardon me… “political parties.”

We should hold our presidents and other representatives accountable to us and our constitution, no matter which group of ours they pretend to lean to.

Whenever we succumb to blind loyalty and thereby allow ourselves to be divided against each other, the robber billionaires and their presidents, legislators, and judges screw us out of our lives. They are our true enemies, not Russia, not a single puppet president, but rather the big money wielders behind the scenes who pull all the strings.

Comments welcome.

Fidel Castro Obituary – An Opposing Viewpoint

Report: Despite US Propaganda, Fidel Castro Beloved Worldwide

(Note: if the video to which this article links gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Despite US Propaganda, Fidel Castro Beloved Worldwide”)

This week, we have seen despicable footage of people celebrating the death of another human being. Personally, I find death from “old age” after a few decades on Earth – which is barely enough for most people to even grow up – a great tragedy built into the human condition and something we should perhaps do something about instead of constantly fighting among ourselves. To celebrate someone’s death, I must be certain he or she was a mass murderer, torturer, or such. I cannot establish this state of affairs for Castro. Continue reading
