The Death of Dodd-Frank — Prepare for the Next Economic Crash

This week’s posts on Our Revolution Continues had a post from Our Revolution that everyone should read and act on. A quote:

While most of the country wasn’t looking, House Republicans voted to claw back virtually every banking regulation implemented after Wall Street crashed and the Great Recession began. With so much scrutiny on the White House, Senate Republicans are now poised to roll back Dodd-Frank and the Affordable Care Act in the same month. Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and every other politician bought by Wall Street and corporate donors thinks that they can get away with this while we’re distracted by the daily circus in the West Wing.

Who Is More Corrupt: Trump, Clinton or Obama? Surprising Answer! (Jimmy Dore)

A nice video for this weekend, if you haven’t seen it already — or perhaps even if you have:

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:

1.) Recently, Bernie ripped the new budget:

2.) Jimmy Dore on the dishonesty of our corporate mass media, the formerly “free” press, the so-called 4th estate which was supposed to keep a watch on governmnet for us. The case exposed: The Washington Post

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Washington Post Caught Blatantly Lying To Their Readers Yet Again”)

3.) Noam Chomsky agrees with Jimmy Dore and me (and you?) on the reprehensible election rigging of the 2016 “Democratic” primaries:

4.) Jimmy Dore on our plutocrats’ horrible arms deals with the Saudi-Arabian terror regime (and thus ISIS, as well):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Saudi Arms Deal Exposes Obama Administration’s Jaw Dropping Hypocrisy”)

As always, you are invited to comment below, and if you agree that the dishonesty of our corporate mass media is a problem, you can help independent media like this one, perhaps the only way to keep us all informed and the ideas flowing.

Trump’s First Hundred Days of War Crimes | CounterPunch

CounterPunch Magazine tends to have good articles. The just published Trump’s First Hundred Days of War Crimes is far more worth reading than the title suggests, as it is not yet another insincere resist-Trump-to-distract-us-from-the-source-of-our-problems “news” piece or op-ed. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

American Properties Butchered by Trump’s Wall

Another news video worth sharing on this hectic day, in case you didn’t come across this already:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Trump Turning His Voters Into Mexicans”)

Oh, President! We Have a Tweet for You! A Real Treat!

Two weeks ago, Represent.Us, which fights for anti-political-corruption laws and a better voting system, came out with a grand idea to take President Trump at his word (about draining the swamp) by doing what he likes the most: issuing an executive order.

Now they have a video appeal for you and me and all our friends to send him via Twitter or Facebook:

When you do share this video, make sure to tag President Trump by typing @Donald J. Trump on Facebook and @RealDonaldTrump on Twitter. Tagging the President will send a notification to the people who monitor his social media accounts, showing them there’s a message for him. Who knows? Perhaps thousands of messages about this campaign would get through to him and… who knows?

Here is the Facebook version of the video link: https://www.facebook.com/RepresentUs/videos/1786853314661865/

An anti-corruption executive order seems like not a bad thing…

 

Still Unclear Why Hillary Lost And Bernie Wouldn’t Have?

Here is a great article by Tim Byrd explaining how the chips really fell throughout the entire primary season and the general election. You really want to read this:

Election 2016: How We Really Lost (By The Numbers, Part 3)

So, quite simply, a virtually unknown senator from Vermont became the most popular politician in our country in just two years by simply sticking to the issues which burn in our hearts while the all-powerful Clinton machine, after decades of graft and power-peddling, still never managed to put a sufficiently pleasant facade on corrupt Shillary to even beat a highly unpopular candidate like Trump. Polls taken from start to finish prove it.

 

The True Purpose of Trumpcare

As I calculated yesterday from available data, the American Health Care Act (AHCA) currently touted by Donald Trump and various Republicans, will send thousands of Americans to their deaths, a minimum 13,500 by next year alone. The House vote is today, and while even some Republican representatives squirm and hesitate to approve it, Mr. Trump is putting exorbitant pressure on them to support it. Continue reading
