1. The People’s Convention

Rise up America against the global oligarchy, against today’s utterly cruel King George served gleefully by both the Republican and “Democratic” Party!

The Peoples Convention 2020 ~ Movement for a People’s Party (Aug 30, 2020)

Presented Albert Einstein quote: The world is a dangerous place not because of those who do evil but because of those who look on and do nothing. (I would add “about it” because of authoritarian slave-minds who think that engaging in politics is “doing nothing” a.k.a. wasting your time. They totally overlook that cases of the government serving its people were ALWAYS achieved through politics pushed by the people. Without that there would be no Social Security, no Unemployment Insurance, and many more often critically needful things. If one refrains from participating in pushing for such things, one does indeed become an accomplice of the evil that ruins so many of our lives.) — Actually, according to brainyquote.com, Einstein really said: “The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” (I always considered him intelligent. So, that fits.)

I especially loved the speech by Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap and right after that Chris Hedges’ speech (and then Lauren Ashcraft!

1. Satire: “Honest Government Ad” on Climate

Humor helps dealing with serious problems. It decreases resignation and boosts persistence and strength needed in the fight for the much needed change. In addition, discovering the absurdity of ongoing policies is often easier when looking at other countries as we can take a view not so obscured by cultivated preconceptions. Hence here is another amusing piece from Australia:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for thejuicemedia and the title: “Honest Government Ad | Climate Breakdown & School Strikes”)

I like a comment that was left on this video on Youtube:

You’ve never failed to impress me with every single one of your ‘honest government ads’

The salt is real.

The anger is real.

The satire is real.

I love you.

Video Weekend 07-14-2018 (18 videos)

This weekend’s online video compilation, sporting many stars (including several non-regulars) like Susan George, Ralph Nader, Abby Martin, Noam Chomsky, Jimmy Dore, Richard Eskow, The Rational National, Jesse Ventura, Brigida Santos, Richard Wolff, Jamarl Thomas, and Thom Hartmann, ranges from news on the oligarchic “Dem” establishment vote-splitting its own base, through deep system analyses, exposure of corruption, media manipulation, economic “free market” reality, political theater, class war, immigration, and automation to enlightened political conversations and spiffy political humor. (Warning: so many good videos piled up this week that I am planning for a Part B tomorrow). Invitation: sign up for notifications from this site as a rich source for eye-opening and ideas-spawning videos and articles.

 

I. System Analysis

Global Debt Slavery: The people worldwide has been colonized by the rich corporatists (A.K.A. Neocons/Neoliberals / robber billionaires and their millionaire minions):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Susan George on Neoliberalism“)

Corporate-state elections:

Prophet Ralph Nader’s stunning precognition in 2015:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The Empire Files: Ralph Nader & Abby Martin on the Corporate Elections“)

Noam Chomski Interview on a broad range of issues:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “PRIMO NUTMEG #144: Noam Chomsky“)

Note: The one thing on which I definitely disagree with him is that “the weight of evidence” suggests that Assad launched chemical attacks. Here, Chomski may have fallen victim to the widespread lies dispersed throughout all the major media outlets. It is simply illogical for Assad to shoot himself into his foot that way (prompting hostilities from super powers like the U.S.), even more so when he is already winning anyway. And that the White Helmets which parade through our media as a kind of Middle Eastern Red Cross are actually a branch of the islamist terrorists, one that specializes in creating fake news (such as those alleged chemical attacks), is pretty well documented by now.

 

II. Corruptitians

Self-declared gods blowing up smoke each other’s a’s while they are screwing us over:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jimmy Dore and the title: “Swamp Creature Scott Pruitt Resigns From EPA“)

“Democratic” Party establishment working to split its own “Democratic” Party vote to avoid progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from winning the election for Congress. Remember how they were gaslighting and voter-shaming us in 2016 (and 2000), blaming those of us who want policies for the people and end the establishment oligarchy for allegedly having gotten us G.W. Bush and Donald Trump? Well, while all this was total bogus in an electoral system so heavily rigged, they sure seem to not hesitate to use the sppiler effect to protect their bribe-paying donors from their own voter base:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Rational National and the title: “Joe Crowley Stays On The Ballot As 3rd-Party Challenge To Ocasio-Cortez“)

 

III. Systemic Corruption

Jesse Ventura, Brigida Santos, and Richard Wolff discuss the erosion of workers’ rights in America and how our corporatist debt-based economy with lots of welfare for the rich and lots of squeezing for the rest of us leads to ever greater inequality.

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Workers’ Rights & Richard Wolff“)

 

IV. Media Manipulation

Controlling the people with lies and silencing. Jesse Ventura and Brigida Santos discuss Operation Mockingbird and how America’s most powerful news outlets have been working with the CIA for decades to plant false stories and mislead the public:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jesse Ventura, Brigida Santos, and the title: “Operation Mockingbird & John Barbour“)

U.S.A. = Propaganda State :

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jamarl Thomas and the title: “ALERT: U.S. Funded “Ministry Of Truth” Is Lying On Glen Greenwald; Legally Spreading Propaganda To U“)

 

V. Economic Reality

Economic reality of protectionism, government subsidies, and oh-so free trade that never was or likely will be:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The deceptive promise of free trade | DW Documentary“)

Our Power Elite’s Corrupt Economy and Political Theater (very insightful speech!):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Richard D. Wolff and the title: “Global Capitalism: Immigration & Trade War [July 2018] “)

Note: Most important point (which you hear from me again and again, as well) around 33:01 min in, starting with an astute audience comment and continuing with Wolff’s well-put response. And at 40:34 min, he goes over our U.S. experience with it.

Toxic economy:

A suitable Pruit Epitaph: Poison for Profit. The rich have absolutely no consideration for us.

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Thom Hartmann and the title: “How the Morbidly Rich are Literally Poisoning the Working Class for Profit!“)

 

VI. Class War

The U.S. Class War (incl. Mortgage Crisis) explained by Richard Wolff:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “How Class Works – by Richard Wolff“)

I’d like to add that, as I calculated and explained before, about half of the income created by all our work (plus the machines and previously made infrastructure and inventions) goes to the small group of the very rich; and if we simply redirected it to us all by taxing excessive income and wealth, we would all have good lives (except in cases of untreatable health crises and such, which we could then also better fight though, by the way).

 

VII. Immigration

Some good points made on our immigration situation:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jimmy Dore and the title: ““We Don’t Want Mexicans” Say Young Trump Supporter“)

The running for your life part of Hispanic immigration to the U.S. (the oligarchy hurts people everywhere — and too many dupes among us still believe this to be ethical and for our safety):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Sana Saeed and the title: “How U.S. Involvement In Central America Led To a Border Crisis| AJ+“)

 

VIII. Automation (quick idea)

Automation could be a good rather than bad thing if handled correctly. Besides Social Security for All as a financial safety cushion and Federal Job Programs (to fund important tasks the private market does not), an additional (not alternative, but additional) way is a shorter work week:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The Divide: Why You Should Work Less – And How It Could Save The Planet“)

 

IX. Political Psychology

Culture is only part of our believes and push-buttons. A lot is in-born. We find it among our closest relatives in the wild:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The surprising science of alpha males | Frans de Waal“)

 

X. Political Conversation

Good conversation comparing the Democratic and Republican gangs… pardon me… “parties” and how to solve our problems. Oh, look at the front picture: more alpha chimps!

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jimmy Dore, Richard Eskow, and the title: “Who’s More Corrupt, Democrats Or Republicans?“)

 

XI. Political Humor

Neat, humorous conversation on immigration, nativism, elite-privilege, election integrity, people striving to make our country being smeared as extremists and the denied the right to do so when they didn’t pick the right soil to be born on…:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jimmy Dore, Richard Eskow, and the title: “Democrats Are Plotting A “Coup”! Says Tucker Carlson”)

The continuation of the conversation (also has good moments): Should A Tolerant Society Tolerate Intolerance?

Note: Keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow’s Part B (at least 3 or 4 more videos).
