Bad Biden, Voter Suppression, Exit Polls, and HUGE Election Fraud

Joseph Stalin (or Joseph Biden?) quote: “It’s completely unimportant who will vote, or how. What is extraordinarily important is who will count the votes, and how.”

 

Bad Biden:

A demented creep with a corrupt scumbag record who is only supported by a minority of ignorants is deceptively placed at the head of primaries via blatant vote count rigging when lesser tricks like voter suppression don’t suffice. And this guy is supposed to be our preferable alternative to Donald Trump?

If you are surprised at such negative claims about Biden, then just skim through the most recent Video Weekend posts on Beanstock’s World. Among other useful stuff, they also contain jaw-dropping reports on and recordings of Biden.

Biden voted for (or even created Congress bills) that harm so many of us, for example by cutting our social safety net (repealing FDR’s Great New Deal), eliminating bankruptcy protections, herding us into pointless evil wars, or placing millions of us in neo-slavery prisons. And he and his family not only made tons of money for themselves via bribery, but on a TV stage Biden arrogantly dismissed young people who complain about our corrupted system. On TV he even once happily admitted his political corruption. And now he is about to be anointed as the presidential D-Party candidate via blatant election fraud? This guy then is supposed to be our preferable alternative to Donald Trump and have any decent chance to win against him?

Asa little hint, here is a video that does NOT review Biden’s corrupt record but DOES dive into his current dementia which would make him a guaranteed loser if he were to run against Trump:

Biden Seems Like He Has Feathers in His Brain ~ Hard Lens Media

And despite his horrible political career record and his grossly evident dementia plus an awfully lazy campaign skipping over many states and offering no real agenda for American voters, Biden is supposed to now be soaring from a very low place in the early primaries to the very top and be magically floating ahead of the vastly popular Bernie Sanders? This is supposed to be true and real voter outcome? Not a fixed election process?

These main issues are the Corona Crisis, UBI-people-funding to address it (Thanks, Tulsi!), Bernie’s main flaw in his campaign, how bad Biden really is, and the ELECTION FRAUD that is currently anointing Biden despite of Bernie’s actual landslide win, and the path to a (new i.e. 3rd) People’s Party:

Iowagate (Feb. 2020)

A weekend review of what happened in the Iowa Caucus this week and how our “democracy” gets commonly rigged these days and a little on what to do about it:

Side note: Since I am not making a living by these postings (despite an option to donate or ‘tip’), I can rarely find time to post during the week. Hence this segment covering what I would have liked to post about earlier this week was going to become part of the Wakeful Video Weekend compilation. However, this would make the number of videos in that posting overly super-yuuuuge. So, today I am posting twice.

Unaccountable U.S. Government Agencies

Chris Hedges: Maintaining US Empire is bipartisan ~ RT America

By now, a growing number of Americans have become aware of how our intended democracy has become undermined by Big Money and turned into a sham where voter participation is essentially blocked by a twin party tyranny of the R- and D-Party, both working exclusively for the rich and their corporations, think tanks, and an army of 42,000+ registered lobbyists (plus many more unregistered ones) while dangling billionaire puppets in front of us as “our” candidates, excluding true people’s representatives from our ballots or rigging the elections when one does make it on the ballots. Some of us fight for honest candidates or try to take over one of these corrupt major parties from within (always failed, so far), fight for a new party that really represents us, or are even awake enough to fight against the massive election fraud committed by both major parties.

But an issue still often overlooked or smeared as “conspiracy theories” is an evil bureaucracy that also rules us, commits crimes in our name, and is unaccountable because even when we do manage to elect trustworthy representatives into Congress or the White House (or state and local governments), our various bureaucratic institutions are kingdoms of their own whose bosses are not elected, at best appointed by elected officials, but even then generally independent from those as these bureaucratic bosses have no term limits while our elected officials do. And even when the very top bosses are replaced by elected officials, they tend to be or later become lobbyists for the corporations they should regulate rather than serve, so they benefit from term limits and are even more reliably driven into the control by billionaires and their corporations – rather than being restrained by term limits – just like our term limited elected officials. (One reason why term limits aren’t really helpful to democracy, which makes the recent smear of Bolivia’s elected president as a “dictator” because he didn’t accept unconstitutional term limits in Bolivia a bit ironic — and sad, of course, when one looks at the violent mass murders and threats committed by his “political” opposition that is running a racist and fascist coup with support or even organized by OUR unaccountable bureaucratic bosses).  Continue reading “Unaccountable U.S. Government Agencies”

A More Relaxed Economy

In this video,

A conversation with my former employee – Dirty Capitalist Confession Session
NonCompete

in which the American Johnson, who feels guilty about his conduct as a business owner in his younger years, says he would have been happier as part of a worker co-op, something important comes up and is only half-discussed, namely the different kind of working life when we can all participate in the business decisions of our workplace.

What gets discussed is the benefit from it, namely you are not being ruled from a top with no means of knowing that the management may be planning your lay-off or firing, and your expertise may actually make it into the decision making that may otherwise be flawed because of ignorance at the managerial (and salesmanship) level, and misunderstandings can be better avoided, and holding our cards close becomes less necessary, and those in key positions will no longer have to bear too much painful responsibility, and so on…

And I basically agree, often arguing for the same, but it also occurred to me – thinking back to when I was working in a similar small family-like company – and that company came down on its luck because of badly timed growth investment and crushing blows from mega corporations invading its market, that we (the people in that company) would also have had to endure a lot of suffering discussing how to survive the financial disaster, who could survive how much pay cut for how long, or who would have to be let go. (The company got so crushed by the mega corporations at the point that its ability to borrow money was gone that it was forced by its bank to slash its workforce by half within a month. That’s how dire the situation was. That’s why even democratic decision making would surely have had to deal with lay-offs.)

This consideration drives me into the thought realm of the universal basic income (a UBI, better thought of as a citizens dividend when financed not by taxing middle income workers but only the rich as a method of reshaping our wealth and power pyramid into an egalitarian broad building with No Rich and No Poor). Because, if every earned dollar has at least another dollar going to the ultra rich at the top, as things are right now, many of us are struggling to make ends meet. But if that dollar was not robbed but stayed with each of us (by cap-taxing the wealthy and shaping the revenue into a UBI), we could all be way more relaxed in our working lives and business management. We could shape our workplaces as worker co-ops in a far more relaxed economy where no worker or worker’s relative would have to worry about sinking into poverty because all the money we earn from labor would only be extra money, not our full livelihood. Business downturns could be handled much more easily.

It’s something to think about for those who worry that a UBI could only be a hand-out to placate the poor, or those who regard it as too much state power becoming too much burden on the private sector. I really think that a correctly done UBI (a citizens dividend) would lead to a far more relaxed economy that would benefit all the unemployed, all employees, and even business managers and owners; in other words: everybody.

It is our current stressful economies that lead to brutal lay-offs, slashing of salaries and benefits, warlike struggles between companies, manipulating and cheating of customers, ruthless destruction of the environment (even our planet’s human-life-supporting climate!). It leads to offshoring jobs, illegal employment of undocumented migrants, worker-income-depriving automation (rather than reduced working hours at unreduced income), and to bloated pharmaceutical prices, because profits become the dominating decision making factor, and people all over the economy are desperate. Desperate people will do desperate things that often are catastrophic.

A relaxed economy would be far better, and it relies on a principle of there never being poverty for anyone. Additionally, to make it happen, there also must be no ridiculous richness for anyone turning that person into a modern day god-king ruling over thousands or millions of fellow people whom he or she rarely perceives as fellow people but as commodities.

Let’s aim for a relaxed economy, shall we?
