Wakeful Video Weekend 2019-11-03 (23 videos)

Our Growing Digital Dictatorship

The spying on and mind control of us is constantly growing. This brief article reveals latest developments and the dark future where we are headed (previewed in China), sharing two informative videos and enhancing them with commentary.

It is also related to the censorship which keeps the vast majority of passionate readers and video watchers of this blog from ever finding out about its existence — for example, yesterday my attempts to post a notice of the latest Video Weekend post on Facebook groups that I am a longtime member of where blocked by Facebook’s oh-so “anti-spam” algorithms (even though I had not posted in a week).Dear readers, I can only recommend that you tell your friends about this blog and subscribe to it (for free, of course) if you haven’t yet.

Can we Trust our Government?

… or do we live in a post-constitutional age, oppressed by a secretive criminal government held in the claws of a corporate billionaire oligarchy hiding behind the curtain?

This post shares two very enlightening videos about our oligarchic government lying to the public, committing crimes, mangling the Constitution, and maiming whistleblowers who let us know about it:   Continue reading “Can we Trust our Government?”

Facebook, Cambridge Analytica, and Geek Squad Spying Update (short video)

… and a reasonable voice in the current din:

Jamarl Thomas at his best. I couldn’t add anything to make it better.

 

 

Video Weekend 02-24-2018 (9 videos)

This weekend video compilation exposes our massive systemic corruption and stark economic truths, the repeal of the New Deal, the latest Russiagate nonsense, a silver lining for Net Neutrality, illegal government agency (“deep state”) activities, and candidates for the people.

  1. Corruption
  2. Economy
  3. Manipulative Russia Narrative
  4. Net Neutrality
  5. Deep State (can we trust the spies who spy on us?)
  6. Candidates for the People

 

I. Corruption

What is illegal anymore?

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Oligarchs Have Captured Our Criminal Justice System”)

Yes, he screams a lot, but he has reason to scream. Who can hear this and not resolve to oust our inhumane, greedy, callous oligarchy? We are an occupied country. Do you get it?

 

More on Ajit Pai, one of the plutocracy’s moles in government

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Ajit Pai Now Being Investigated for Corruption by His OWN Agency“)

 

II. Economy

Some stark economic truths (for me really good starting at 9:40):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Economic Update: Capitalism’s Excuse: Blame Government [S7 E7]“)

 

They’re Coming for our Last Drops of Blood. In this interview by Thom Hartmann, Richard Wolff explains how our society is hanging by the thread of its last remaining shreds of the New Deal’s social safety net which the GOP-aligned plutocrats are now coming for:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Dr. Richard Wolff On What America Will Look Like If The Republicans Get Their Way“)

 

III. Manipulative Russia Narrative

I wonder how much brain it takes to figure out that a handful of misguided Russian trolls weren’t a big deal…:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: »Here Are The Russian Memes That “Swung The Election”«)

 

IV. Net Neutrality

The way to deal with net neutrality:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Hawaii Taking BOLD Action to Protect Net Neutrality “)

What’s the trick? Unprivatize it! Return it into the hands of the state (the people) who created it in the first place. Enough corporate hijacking on behalf of the plutocracy! We the people count more than profits for a few. We rightfully own our nation and our states, even our places of work, our economy, our parks, our forests, our lands… Enough of the plunderers and oppressors from the top!

 

V. Deep State (The String Pullers Behind the Curtain)

The Deep State Revealed:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Mindblowing Corruption At FBI – NSA Whistleblower Reveals“)

 

VI. Candidates for the People

What we need: Candidates with Skin in the Game of American Life

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Progressive With Unbelievably Powerful Story Set To WIN Congressional Seat- Amy Vilela“)

And another candidate to unseat a lifelong crook. This one’s a union working “stiff”:

Video Weekend 01-13-2018 (7 Videos) — JJJ

This Triple-J video weekend is dominated by three great personalities. On one hand, Jimmy Dore and his team produced so many good videos lately that I am having a hard time catching up to share them all. So, this video weekend is dedicated to the Jimmy Dore Show. Only the last video is from another source, namely great thinker Jamarl Thomas doing what I like to do most, too: calibrating our perspective and turning our focus on the great world we can build, a perfect world for humanity that is only a decision and political revolution away. And, not to forget, we have here a great, visionary, and very historically informative interview with none other than Jill Stein. Enjoy!

 

I. Jimmy Dore

A) Getting the Crooks out of Politics

Learn more about Tim Canova and Deplorable Debbie

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Imran Awan Criminal Investigation Snares Debbie Wasserman Schultz”)

There is more:

B) Net Neutrality

The fight for a censorship-free Internet continues:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Good News In Fight For Net Neutrality “)

 

C) The Surveillance State

Big brother is watching you (thanks to the Twin Party Tyranny):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Pelosi Just Helped Trump Spy On You! “)

Comment: Well said. We truly live in unconstitutional times. All this century, ever since the never-elected Bush-Cheney Regime took over and trampled our Constitution with impudence and glee, have our country’s political handmaidens to the robber billionaires blithely ignored and violated our Constitution.

 

D) America and the World

America’s Decline Seen From Abroad (gets really good 5:16 min in, but also has good stuff before (for example on our faked corporate media’s Middle East reporting)):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Europe Laughing At America’s Red Scare w/Rania Khalek”)

 

E) Alternative to the Duopoly

Very informative interview of Jill Stein by Jimmy Dore

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Jill Stein’s Strategy To Coalesce The Left“)

Notes: No more lesser evil voting. Ranked Choice Voting to free us from the spoiler straight jacket. Major unions thinking about a new party. People’s movement umbrella organizations sprouting. The “Dems” have denied us a people’s party for about three generations. When you silence the people you make a demagogue inevitable. J20 Trials.

 

II. Jamarl Thomas

Closing words on getting past our own hang-ups, our self-created problems, and learning to think and act big:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “We Must Retain Our Capacity to Think & Do BIG Things as a Collective “)

Note: Now, my call to arms tends to focus on cosmic challenges like our short lifespans and horrid decrepitude in the later part of life. Cosmic exploration would also be nice, and I openly dream of a Star-Trek-like human world we can build, my focus not being on space travel but a good life for all. Isn’t that the goal we should all set for ourselves and rally around?
