Once a media black-out followed by off-hand ridicule (as in the MSM’s war against Bernie Sanders’ early campaign) or the constant repetition of false accusations (like blaming Ralph Nader for G.W. Bush) haven’t worked, the corporate MSM have a two-puch approach to destroy the public reputation of true champions for the people:
- First punch: They invite them for an interview in which they lambaste them with unfounded accusations that would make the toughest street fighter speechless (plus: if the interview isn’t live they edit out crucial parts and if it is live they cut off the interviewee whenever he or she is coming for their throats with the truth).
- Second punch: After the interview, their allied mass media and lesser establishment media stooges smear the champion as having been crushed in the interview, even though this didn’t happen. They are counting on far too many people — us being so busy surviving — to blindly believe their headlines (as too many of us still do). Let’s hope enough of us are waking up not to let ourselves be played like that anymore.
Here is Jimmy Dore exposing this kind of an attack on Jill Stein, a Green Party candidate who has long been fighting for free College, healthcare for all, and end to U.S.-corporate war profiteering around the world, and an economy that works for everybody; and who is now being smeared as a Russian agent by the establishment media:

These attempted character assassinations by the establishment’s mass media are nothing new. Remember how they were blaming Bernie Sanders for Deplorable Trump’s victory over Deplorable Hillary? They have grown quieter around this propaganda line now that the “Democratic” Party finds Bernie a useful sheepdog for herding gullible people back into the sinking “Democratic” Party, but I recall a veritable propaganda frenzy. (apparently being revived now that he is planning to run again in 2020)
The big take-home message of all this is about America’s public enemy #1! Continue reading
Friends, as I have been busy explaining all year, the “Democratic” and Republican party are like the two arms of the establishment. Both work for the oligarchs (the robber billionaires and their mighty minions, the big banks and corporations), and we should break them both. The “Democratic” Party is a closer goal since Bernie Sanders’ populist upset and a rising Green Party which has gained enough support for us to move it into play (even if this election’s election fraud apparently made a point in reducing its permitted and counted votes to an alleged mere 1% — and, yes, as I have also been trying to explain, the better cheater “wins” our elections until we clean them up).
Anyway, as the news from TYT clearly show, it was – once again – the establishment which won the dog-and-pony show we get every four years. Watch:
As I have proposed in Seven Strategies against the System, we really must tackle our systemic corruption on a broad front.

We must break away from the abusers: the GOP and DNC
It’s like an abusive marriage where your husband kicks you in your pregnant belly. It’s time for a divorce from the abusive twin-party tyranny.
We do have the power! The establishment spends billions to convince us we don’t. As soon as our perception changes, we are unstoppable. We DON’T need to enslave ourselves to our lords! We’ve got to find the courage of our own convictions.
- Refuse to be played!
- You do have power!
- You do have choice!
- Vote Truth = Vote Green
- Vote Justice = Vote Green
- Vote Decency = Vote Green
- Vote Sense = Vote Green

All of us are sick of the rigged system, the corruption in high places, and the two corrupt main party candidates for president. It’s not surprising why: All prosperity flows to the top. Every year things get worse. More and more of us eek our way through life from the cradle to the grave without any hope. And just take a look at those main party candidates: Continue reading
I have to revisit this issue, because there is just so much baloney out there: Really the only thing that makes sense this November is to vote independent or third party, even if it means voting for candidates who – this(!) year – won’t win.
Why is that? Continue reading…
