Video Weekend 06-16-2018 (12 videos)

This online video compilation for enriching weekend watching presents news and sharp analyses over a wide spectrum of issues, among these: wrongful government spending; oligarchy; disaster capitalism (such as is currently ravaging Puerto Rico); better health in China than the U.S.; burial of the Bernie Bro Myth; the establishment’s smoke and mirrors; the race to the bottom; voting, guns, and healthcare in Australia, and an expert analysis of the “Democratic” Party’s psychology.

 

I. Government Spending

Bernie speaking in the Senate about “our” government’s blank-check war industry spending ($716 billion – more than the next ten countries combined while always whining about the deficit when it comes to helping American families in trouble):

A comment left on Youtube: »“Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.” Psalms 82:3-4«

Why we “Can’t Afford” Nice Things. When billionaires and their politician shills tell us we can’t afford nice things like healthcare for non-billionaires, it’s not because the government is poor (after all, it spends avishly on the war industry and on tax cuts for the billionaires) but because the billionaires siphon off the government money into their own coffers and they don’t want it to go elsewhere:

III. Empire

IV. Bernie Bro Myth

Burial of the Bernie Bro Myth

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “New Poll Completely Demolishes the ‘Bernie Bro’ Myth“)

 

V. Smoke & Mirrors

Fake Charities and Humanitarian Foundations. The thieving oppressive oligarchs like to make themselves look good with charities and also appease and co-opt people by pretending that organizations are in place that take on humanity’s problems when in reality they only white-wash the oligarchy and its cruel empires. So, is it any wonder that only crowd-funding supports truly helpful organizations, candidates, and alternative media (sadly way too little, in part because of these false flag organizations giving the impression that we underprivileged folks don’t have to sacrifice our few hard-earned dollars)?

VI. Economy

China now has better health than we do, the race to the bottom with systematic tactics to impoverish working people, and more:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Economic Update: Standing Up“)

 

VII. Oligarchy

As Bernie Sanders says, this is what oligarchy looks like:

VIII. Elsewhere in the World

Voting, guns, and healthcare in Australia:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “What America can Learn from Australia’s Progressives“)

 

IX. System Analysis

Today’s America: a system where nobody in power does anything for working people anymore. The disease of the “Democratic” Party:

Video Weekend 05-12-2018 (8 videos)

This weekend compilation of online videos ranges across a wide range of economic and political topics (democratic-economy, corruption, establishment hypocrisy, election integrity, the Religious Wrong, and more). It sports stars like Jimmy Dore, Richard Wolff, Lee Camp, Lora Chamberlain, Peter Joseph, Mike Figueredo, Francesca Fiorentini, and Jesse Ventura (order of appearance).

  1. Democracy & Economy
  2. Corruption
  3. Election Integrity
  4. System Analysis
  5. Segregation Politics (the Religious Wrong)
  6. Fake-“Democratic” Party
  7. Establishment Hypocrisy
  8. Speaking Truth

 

I. Democracy & Economy

Democracy is needed in our economy lest economic despots destroy democracy and a worthy life for all. Karl Marx figured this out nearly two centuries ago. Are we finally catching up to grasp it, too?

Marxism: Democracy in the Workplace — Interview of Richard Wolff by Jimmy Dore

II. Corruption

Corruption Gallore (report mixed with some humor, since it’s a comedy show, after all):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “~195~ New Proof About $21 Trillion Missing, Big Oil Hiring Fake Activists, & More“)

 

III. Election Integrity

(and government fake news)

Part 1: Fighting back against the establishment’s massive election theft.

Part 2: Government fake news.

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “[110] Election Integrity Activist Reveals Huge Holes In The System“)

Good suggestion made: Traceable paper ballots and observable genuine audits.

Question: What about observable, genuine vote counting like other countries have? (Yes! In other countries EVERY counted vote is automatically audited IN PUBLIC. They have competing-party members verify each other’s counts! Each count!!! Why can’t we do that???!?!?!?!?!?????)

Recommended books and links given by Lora Chamberlain in this interview:

  • “CODE RED” by Jonathan Simon (on computerized election theft and the new American Century) .
  • Democracy Lost”, the (free!) report by Election Justice USA about the democratic primaries and all of the election fraud that occurred there.
  • Short youtube videos by Dr. Alex Halderman from the University of Michigan on computerized election fraud, making it really simple to understand .
  • Verifiedvoting.org is the place to go for knowing what kind of voting machines / election machinery you have (and maybe info on audits and fraudits?)
  • Common Cause and Public Citizen are very interested in this issue and they put up a website Secure Our Vote (also has other participants/sponsors like RockTheVote, StandUpAmerica, Center for American Progress, and Democracy 21) — They have short webinars with excellent guests on their resource pages. These webinars let us get up to speed quickly.

Further resources and informations can be found on CLEAN COUNT COOK COUNTY

and also here on Beanstock’s World[1][2].

Great call: Stop being an establishment pawn!

 

IV. System Analysis

Important stats. And a vision: end the war among ourselves.

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “What You’re NOT Told About Unemployment w/Peter Joseph pt. 2”)

 

V. Segregation Politics (the Religious Wrong)

Creation of the Religious “Right”:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “How The Religious Right Became A Political Force |AJ+“)

 

VI. Fake-“Democratic” Party

“Demosaurs” and the civil war in the “Democratic” Party — a party thereby headed for extinction:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Bill Clinton Reportedly Instructed Tom Perez to Stop Bernie Sanders’ Influence”)

 

VII. Establishment Hypocrisy

Unfortunately, this video only focuses on (R)-hypocrisy letting some (D)-hypocrisy shine through between the lines, though. Let’s remember, the establishement hypocrisy on which the twin-party tyranny lives is horrible and for us to end:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Greatest Hypocrisies In The Trump Era“)

 

VIII. Speaking Truth

Great conversation between Jesse Ventura and Jimmy Dore:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “How Jesse Ventura Would Run For President In 2020 -pt. 3”)

One of many good points from Jesse: Government has to earn patriotism. Government cannot mandate patriotism.

HELP! How Can We Be Heard?

This is long overdue. Millions of Americans have woken up from their fifty years of slumber, but they don’t know where to go, what to do, what is really going on, and that we could build a Star-Trek-like utopia in our lifetime… if only they knew how. And the few, like me, who do know, are struggling to make ourselves heard.

And what are all the awoken doing to get the word out? Close to nothing.

Interview with a Legend

Amazingly, not so long ago, we had a regime which dismantled our protections under the Bill of Rights, caused the death of at least a million of people by the violence of its war profiteering, ordered acts of abduction and torture, abolished due process, put us all under extreme surveillance, and generally raped our nation from the comfort of the White House for no less than two presidential terms without ever having been actually elected.

The myth of the “Death Tax”

wealth

How the establishment likes to play with our heads! Long years ago, one of their think tank monsters came up with the devious idea of labeling the estate tax as a “death” tax. For people who take in catchy phrases like that without using the gray matter of their brains to think, this automatically sounds like a horrible idea since we don’t like death. The automatic thought runs through their heads: Oh no! I’ve been paying taxes all my life, and now they want to tax me when I’m dead?!?  Continue reading “The myth of the “Death Tax””

When the Rigged System Doesn’t Hurt You

ted-cloon

I recently read up a little on the actor Ted Danson, whose work (and often snarky roles) I have always liked. Not too surprisingly, I came across a report of his political activism, and – again not too surprisingly – it followed the normal pattern of his generation of celebrities. On one hand, he is an environmentalist, which goes to his credit. On the other hand, though, he is a habitual supporter of the Democratic Party and its corrupt leadership which took over and warped this party — a party which had been a people’s party in his youth, but which has since become a party for the upper 10%, unnoticed by people like himself.  Continue reading “When the Rigged System Doesn’t Hurt You”

The Mentality of our Selfish Politicians and their Crowd

Oh, yes… the mind-warping power of privilege… Once again, a recorded political conversation inspired me to take the conversation further among us. The below interview is quite interesting (despite for, if you ask me, too much apologetics for the Hillary camp from a guy who can’t quite leave his bubble of privilege). What makes it interesting is an insider’s insight into in the layer of society from which our self-serving politicians derive. The most interesting part starts around 15:30 minutes into the clip:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Corporate Democrats Have a Vested Interest in Not Listening to Workers – RAI with Thomas Frank (¼)”)

The a deeper insight into our ruling class that we can draw from this is the following:  Continue reading “The Mentality of our Selfish Politicians and their Crowd”

Trump’s Arpaio Pardon: Far More than Meets the Eye (the things the MSM didn’t tell you)

Of course you have heard the profuse allegations of Trump’s white supremacy links in connection with his pardon of Joe Arpaio, the Texas sheriff found guilty, among other things, of racial profiling — a shocker that came right after Trump defended the murderer of Charlottesville by blaming both sides: the violent supremacists and the peaceful protesters. We sure heard a lot of pumped-up outrage about it. But, honestly, both Trump’s flirting with white supremacists and the attempt of his political opponents to turn it to their political advantage, are nothing new. I’d never bother to write a whole article about them. The deeper meanings and connections I am going to share with you today, however, might be new to you and of much greater significance than the pardoning of one bad guy. There is indeed a lot more here than meets the eye. So, keep reading…   Continue reading “Trump’s Arpaio Pardon: Far More than Meets the Eye (the things the MSM didn’t tell you)”

This Man, Tim Canova, Can Wipe the Floor with Deplorable Wasserman Schultz!

If you don’t yet know Tim Canova very well, here you can take a good look at this apparently long-time Bernie ally. He talks darn smart (I had no idea he was this knowledgeable and astute (much like Bernie)), and – unlike last year, when he jumped into the ring late to fight back at this corporate hack who had been abusing her position as DNC Chair to rig the primaries against Bernie – he is getting started in good time this year to oust her in 2018. When you consider that he lost by only a few thousand votes last year after entering the race way late against a corporatist with tons of money and the entire “Democratic” Party establishment backing her up, I’d say he’s bound to send her packing. I, for one, will rejoice. May the door hit her on the way out.
