Video Weekend 12-23-2017 (7 Videos)

A variety of topics covered this weekend by outstanding interviews and speeches:

  1. the Media War
  2. our Rigged Elections
  3. What is Socialism?
  4. the UBI
  5. Clintonites & 2020

 

I. Featured: Jesse Ventura & Jimmy Dore on the Media War

For-profit news are not reliable and facts don’t have two sides. Jesse Ventura meets Jimmy Dore. Oh, that’s good (published on Dec 15):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “WATJ 15: FCC, Death of Real News & Jimmy Dore”)

Comment: The Internet is really a utility. Ending Net Neutrality is like allowing giant corporations to sell you poisoned Flint Michigan water instead of safe water if you can’t afford a luxurious protection racket water bill or that corporations doesn’t like your political views.

 

II. Our Rigged Elections

Voter fraud is a fake claim used to justify voter suppression:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Voter Fraud Isn’t a Problem. Voter Suppression Is. “)

 

III. What is Socialism?

Have you ever heard people say “socialism has never worked?” Turns out it isn’t true. Here is a rich review of a number of meanings and flavors of traditional socialism, just to clear the air a little with a bit of realism:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Debunked: “Socialism Has Never Worked””)

Note: Not much mentioned are modern versions of socially responsible economics (which is what the word socialism is really meant to stand for) like worker co-ops and a shared assets economy. But then this is mostly a historic review. Very useful, though, in enriching our political debate and debunking a slew of dalse notions about “socialism,” whatever a particular person may mean when using the word.

 

IV. More on the UBI:

Good take on the UBI by a left-winger. Yanis Varoufakis is a smart one when it comes to questions of economy or democracy:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Varoufakis – Why the Universal Basic Income is a Necessity – by the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute”)

The discussion about ubi seems to be progressing well across the big pond:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Why we should pay everyone a basic income | FT Comment”)

 

V. Clintonites are on the wrong side of the American People:

Thinking ahead to the 2020 election… Hillbots use false math:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Depth of Hillary Clinton’s Failure in 2016 – Let’s Dispel Any Notion of 2020”)

Note: one important fact not to overlook is that Hillary’s alleged win of the popular vote matches the same pattern of her election fraud in the “Democratic” primaries where Bernie would lead all election night, then suddenly boxes of alleged absentee votes would be carried in, and all of a sudden the results would flip.

Clintonites are NOT the adults in the room:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “New Poll Shows Hillary Clinton’s Already Abysmal Approval Rating Plummet Even Further “)

Happy Holidays, everyone! 🙂

Captain Kirk meets Donna Brazile (and other fine videos)

I just gotta share this. Without further ado:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Captain Kirk meets Donna Brazile”)

.

If you haven’t noticed, what’s been happening is damage control upon damage control (FBI-blaming, “Bernie Bro” gaslighting, Russia hack mania, denying the election fraud in the 2016 primaries, finally admitting a little bit of it but painting the DNC as Obama’s and Hillary’s victim, and so on):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Donna Brazile Changes Her Story 100% – What Happened?”)

.

Passing the buck. Blaming everything on an ex, so the current and future crooks in politics can continue unimpeded. Journalists making it all about isolated figureheads instead of how we, the people, are robbed of our voice in our affairs:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: »”Journalists” Act Unsurprised At Admission The DNC Rigged Election Against Bernie Sanders«)

.

In the end, it’s all the same old “good cop/bad cop” routine played on us by the political crooks in both political gangs (the Republican and “Democratic” Party) who all work for the billionaire bandits while pretending to work for the people.

It’s high time for a new party:

Video Weekend 11-04-2017 (7 + 1 Videos)

This weekend’s mix of enlightening videos, starring Jimmy Dore, Chris Hedges, and David Graeber, focuses primarily on two topics: government (despotism vs democracy) and the economy:

Note: Somehow the announcement of this posting failed to go out yesterday. I have therefore just added one very entertaining video at the end here instead of making a new post out of it. It’s big fun! Skip to it if you watched the others yesterday.

 

I. “Democratic” Party Reform not Working (Jimmy Dore):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Tulsi Gabbard Rips The DNC – Demands Change”)

Maybe Tulsi should dress in her uniform when she gives speeches. (and also stop being so polite)

 

II. The hill of the shining beacon has caved in (Jimmy Dore):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “CIA Whistleblower Reveals CIA Still Torturing – Here’s How“)

 

III. The Silencing of Truth, Justice, and The People (Chris Hedges):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “On Contact: The Silencing of the Left with Robert Scheer”)

The thing to realize for a lot of folks who have been raised to hate the “left” and self-identify as the “right” is that when you are against billionaire money in politics and for the needs and wishes of the people, you are actually “left” by the standard definition. The establishment has played a trick on you reversing the definitions of political labels, turning them on their heads, so that we, the people, fight each other over self identification, hating the other group for being our opposite when, for the most part, they are actually the same. So, if we can’t agree on the meanings of these labels, let’s drop them – they are only words, after all – and unite around the actual issues on which most of us agree, like a fair economy and functioning democracy where we all can have a good living and a voice in our public affairs.

Quote: “Everybody out there has a story of abuse.” So… maybe we should all become more willing to accept the grievances of others and commit to help one another?

 

IV. Ideal vs real vs underestimated economic inequality (in case I haven’t shared this before):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The collapse of the american dream – This will scare you”)

 

V. Money is not our limit (David Graeber):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “David Graeber: debt and what the government doesn’t want you to know | Comment is Free”)

 

VI. When the rich make the tax rules to their benefit, it creates gross inequality:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Were Not Broke – The Corporate Tax Cheats of America”)

 

VII. A final word of reason — Voter’s Leverage — This is how democracy works:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Democratic Civil War! A Struggle We Must Win“)

 

VIII. HEHEHE:

Jimmy Dore at his finest as a comedian, giving us an ironic parody of disgusting MSM behavior:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Thank You, Hillary! Our Response To The Tonight Show’s Hillary Love Fest”)

Jackpot! How to Buy the “Democratic” Party for $20 Million or Less – And Rinse for a Repeat

No honor among thieves. Not even when they blow a whistle on their fellow thieves can you trust their words or intentions. That’s the conclusion we can draw from the latest political bombshell: Donna Brazile’s recent confession of the stolen 2016 primaries that you may have heard things about.

At first I was surprised, then I started thinking; and I suggest you do the same. I see far too many knee-jerk reactions and snap judgments out there related to this piece of news, and those are exactly what makes us subject to manipulation.

I highly recommend you read Donna Brazile’s Politico article yourself. In it the former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile explains the DNC’s collusion with Hillary Clinton’s 2015-2016 campaign for nomination, a campaign that was nothing more than a dog-and-pony show because Hillary was controlling the “Democratic” Party the entire time. How? With money, honey! It’s always the money!

Video Weekend 9-23-2017 – Part 2

I have featured Mike Figueredo before to share his many spot-on insights and carefully gathered facts. He recently released a record length video compilation, over three hours long (and full of good stuff), a length that many of us can probably only handle on a weekend, except for those set up to listen to his podcasts while commuting.

Hence this part 2 of my video weekend post dedicated to Mike’s “Humanist Report.” To make it easier to handle, I have written up a timeline so you can more easily watch it in parts. The timeline is posted in the “Continue reading…” section below the video:

Video Weekend 9-16-2017 (7 Videos)

Once again, friends, I give you a great collection of recent videos which will fire up your will to fight for a better world and warm your hearts in the company of like-minded fighting spirits who, just like you and I, have had enough of a rigged system and corrupt despots in our lives.

I. A MUST-SEE: THE ONE BIG VIDEO only a weekend may give you time for. A really great conference FULL OF GREAT THOUGHTS :

We have Trump as POTUS now because we don’t have a working people’s party in this country. While the majority of us (60% of Americans) wish for a new party to end the corruption of our party duopoly, a growing bunch of folks are working hard to actually make it happen (you may join them). Some of the leading figures met recently to discuss many issues and work on the plan. This clip, while really long, is well worth watching. The perhaps best part (among many great ones), at least for me, goes from 1:20:00 to 1:32:27:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Draft Bernie Sanders Panel with Cornel West, Kshama Sawant, Jimmy Dore, Nick Brana “)

Another good point made here: Our ruling politicians are posers, posing to be the people’s representatives, posing to be working Americans’ friends.

 

II. American Tribalism & Hillary’s Continued Blame Campaign:

  1. How segments of the people get played against each other, and what it takes for some people to be shaken out of their happy bubble slumber.
  2. Lee Camp reacts to HRC’s recent alternative facts book and media campaign. Talk about a horrific zombie on TV…

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “ [77] How Alternative Media Can Win “)

 

III. The Walking Dead

Sheesh! Crooked Hillary crawling back from the grave gives me a reason to actually look into right-wing media. It’s amazing how (with a few exceptions of dubious stuff) the below clip is spot on and better than what most “left” media have to say about this corrupt graft politician:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: ” She DESTROYS HILLARY’S NEW BOOK! “)

 

IV. Fun Snapshot

To conclude on the last issue, a little fun in form of an unedited smart-phone recording. You probably have seen it already, but in case you haven’t, here it is:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: ” Hillary Clinton Confronted at 2017 Book Signing! Deleted Emails? Benghazi? Seth Rich? [mirrored]“)

 

V. And Since We Are on the Topic of Fun…

Successful revolutionaries throughout history have always reminded us that we must find joy in the fight to fight it well and not burn out, and – indeed – comedians have often been the first voices of rebellion:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: ” Lee Camp and Jimmy Dore: Comedy’s Role In Political Revolution“)

 

VI. Finally, Bernie on the Election Theft Against Him:

A rare moment: Bernie hedgingly commenting on the DNC’s election fraud in the 2016 primaries .

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: ” Bernie Sanders Finally Comments On DNC Fraud Lawsuit“)

Bernie responded to this caller as I expected: he carefully avoids entering a risky debate, but between the lines hints that he always knew he would be up against a gigantic political machine of utter corruption, that he went in for the long fight on the issues not just a quick win of the highest office which was practically impossible while this corruption is at the height of its power, and that he got the stone rolling for a political revolution which no man can run alone. We, who have awoken, must wake up more of our fellow Americans and form a political movement millions strong to set things right in our country.

 

VII. Two Shining Stars Talking

And, to finish an insightful conversation between Tim Black and Kashama Sawant :

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: » Kashama Sawant: “The Democratic Party Will Not Be Our Vehicle For Change!”«)

Kashama Sawant: “The Democratic Party Will Not Be Our Vehicle For Change!”
Kashama Sawant: “What a person looks like is less important than whose side they are on.”

And here is the link she gave: socialistalternative.org

 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and don’t forget to share these videos with your friends and family! 🙂

The Political Mud Slinging Continues

Even as record-size hurricanes keep tearing into the nation, the political mud slinging continues. Good grief! Well, be prepared, fine people who want to clean up the mess of our country: you are going to get more smears and gaslighting. Mrs. Clinton just came out with a book preaching alternative facts (in other words: lies and creative interpretations to warp reality). So, anyone who accuses any of us of not letting go of the 2016 debacle and Hillary’s second historic failure to realize her dynastic claim on the American throne, let’s be clear: it’s her not going away. It’s her continuing the smears side by side with all those other neoliberal handmaidens of the robber billionaires and their destructive corporations. And, of course, they do this in order to continue their devastating politics which has been flushing our country and its people down the drain. You smearers and gaslighters seriously expect us not to fight back when you act to harm our country? Naturally, we shouldn’t spend much time on these silly excuses and justifications for 2016, because we mustn’t let ourselves be distracted from the real issues. Let’s just place a response for the sake of defending against fake facts and then return to fighting on the issues.  Continue reading “The Political Mud Slinging Continues”

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:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Who Is More Corrupt: Trump, Clinton or Obama? Surprising Answer!”)

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:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Verdict Segment. Is Hillary Clinton the Lesser Evil? For Once and For all, NO!”)
