Mississippi, ICE, ISIS, “Illegal Aliens” – And Some Rational Thoughts

In the aftermath of the recent ICE raids and the outrage on both sides (one legit, the other absurd) some reasonable thoughts finally emerged. Thoughts everyone should mull over. The following video presents some of them and my commentary below goes further:

 

11 Year Old Girl Tearfully Pleas For Father’s Release From ICE Custody
The Majority Report w/ Sam Seder

That terrible government official in the shared video above (someone I admit to call an oligarchy pig in the back of my mind) speaks of “criminal search warrants”. I must ask: How the heck do we, the people, let these power peddling corrupticians get away with criminalizing misdemeanors and labeling people as illegal? How can any honest and morally upstanding person put entering a country without a visa on the same level with committing murder, rape, or child kidnapping (the latter done by the same “police” forces who go after this supposed “crime”)?  Continue reading “Mississippi, ICE, ISIS, “Illegal Aliens” – And Some Rational Thoughts”

The Hurtful Use of Wrong Words in Journalism and Public Talk

Words are meant to help humans understand each other and their world. Wrong words can lead to the opposite. Using think-tank-made vocabulary designed to warp reality therefore plays into the hands of the establishment. For example, calling neoliberals a.k.a. corporatists a.k.a. fake-left-rightwingers “centrists” gives them a fake endorsement by being presented as a people’s majority and allegedly being more reasonable than anyone else by being supposedly distant form extremists.

Yet, nothing could be further from the truth when we are talking about a greedy, self-serving minority in cahoots with the robber billionaires who steal the world’s entire wealth from the rest of us and push us into submission. It’s a group of fraudsters hardly different from the neocons that warped the “R” party some time before the neoliberals then warped the “D” party. This party takeover has created the “good cop/bad cop” routine with which American voters have been befuddled in every election ever since. None of these crooks should be painted as “centrists” or allowed by us to present themselves that way.

The same problem can come from one’s own vocabulary mistakes, like when one compares Trump to Obama and describes Obama as nice and Trump as not nice Continue reading “The Hurtful Use of Wrong Words in Journalism and Public Talk”

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.

X. Walmart: Bernie Sanders is the Spark of Our Needed Political Revolution

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Kim Iversen and the title: “Bernie Sanders Takes on Walmart and Shows Democrats How Its Done”)

These are indeed the kinds of champions we need, representatives, candidates, activists, who put pressure on the oligarchy rather than spending all their time calling for big donations from the donor class (the robber billionaires and their thieving CEOs and “think” tanks and 42,000+ lobbyists).

The Camouflage of Authoritarianism

In the interview clip shared below, a caller makes an important point about authoritarian regimes, namely that authoritarianism can camouflage in any present economic or political system. Therefore socialism gets easily smeared by pointing at the Soviet Union where an authoritarian undemocratic regime hid behind the facade of socialism (or communism, depending on which representative or critic was speaking). It’s almost funny considering that the Soviet Union’s economic system wasn’t really socialist or communist but a form of state capitalism where the ruling capitalists aren’t private owners of everything but bureaucratic members of a regime controlling everything, making workers as ruled from above, voiceless, and possibly exploited at their places of work as in any private ownership style capitalist system. If you research the history of the term socialism you will find that it was created around the idea of democracy in our economy, the workers owning the means of production, not an authoritarian regime acting out as the workers’ alleged representative and thus painting itself as socialist. But I digress…

Florida Fake Votes Flourishing

Those of us old enough may remember the suspected Floridian election fraud giving G.W. Bush the White House in the year 2000 and again in 2004 (when other states lie Ohio joined the fraud, specifically using rigged voting machines). Then, two years ago, there was strong indication that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was reaffirmed in Florida’s Broward County through vote count tampering, and when her opponent Tim Canova asked for a recount or investigation, the Supervisor of Elections – Brenda Snipes – first stalled forever and eventually destroyed the ballots before they could be checked. (I call that destruction of evidence!) Therefore, this year Tim Canova decided to run outside the “Democratic” Party, so he couldn’t be cheated out of the race in the primaries again. Well, he may very well have been cheated in the November election. There are also Floridian voices asking for recounts and elections from other corners (both blue and red), such as the governor himself. Maybe, in this battle for victories, election fraud will finally be exposed? It’s high time that somewhere it gets exposed since it has been growing and growing (and gave us Trump instead of Sanders two years ago, if you ask me — and definitely not just in Florida). It might be Tim Canova’s shining historic moment if he can expose it in his county. I wish him plenty of success.   Continue reading “Florida Fake Votes Flourishing”
