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).

Making a Chilling Example of a Truth Teller

Great interview concerning the Julian Assange case. I fully agree that this case is an effort to make a chilling example of a truth-telling journalist so that no-one ever again dare to spread truth about government malfeasance to the people for fear of being arrested and expedited into the hands of cruel despotic government officials. And we all must stand up against this to fight for our own freedom and a chance to hold our governments accountable.

I must say, Roger Waters really impressed me deeply in this interview. It speaks for itself and covers the main points of importance in this case, including the perverse arguments made by evildoers and their gullible puppets in favor of this persecution. A must-hear interview, especially since even some good-hearted people (like for instance presidential candidate Marianne Williamson as you could see in yesterday’s Video Weekend) are still trapped in the false narratives we have been fed on the mass media:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters: WHOLE WORLD Must Focus on Julian Assange Arrest!”)

None of the arguments made by supporters of Assange’s persecution do in fact carry the same weight as our vital need for a free press.

Political Awakening Video Weekend 04-14-2019 (22 videos) — The Assange Story

The overarching theme of Wikileak’s Julian Assange, his history, accomplishments, past celebrity status, recent arrest and current instrumentalization in our oligarchy’s war on free speech and democracy, the forces and interests behind his arrest, and the far reaching consequences of it all, even criminalizing freedom of the press and turning truth-telling into a crime. The horrors likely facing him. Also the reasons why powerful politicians and journalists don’t stand up for him and the basic concepts of free press and democracy… There is a lot to be learned this weekend in and around the news and conversations held along this theme. Great words and revelations from lots of remarkable people: Snowden, Chomsky, Greenwald, Chris Hedges, Tulsi Gabbard, AOC, Tim Black, Jimmy Dore, Mike Figueredo, to mention only a few, also various insiders and a really impressive really powerful speech by Kim Iversen. If you have no time to watch anything else, listen to her clip that summarizes a lot.

These videos are very worth watching. So much to learn and be up to speed about.

Topics:

  1. Julian Assange’s Arrest
  2. Jimmy Dore – “Save The Internet Act” Passes In the House
  3. Jimmy Dore – Why all that agression against Assange
  4. Jimmy Dore – Assange, Tulsi, & the “Dems”
  5. Media & Ignorance & Party Politics & Freedom of the Press on Trial
  6. AOC on Manning and Assange, Ecuadorians on Assange
  7. Assange’s History: Now Pawned, He Used to be Celebrated
  8. Powerful Final Words

Video Weekend 05-12-2018 (8 videos)

This weekend compilation of online videos ranges across a wide range of economic and political topics (democratic-economy, corruption, establishment hypocrisy, election integrity, the Religious Wrong, and more). It sports stars like Jimmy Dore, Richard Wolff, Lee Camp, Lora Chamberlain, Peter Joseph, Mike Figueredo, Francesca Fiorentini, and Jesse Ventura (order of appearance).

  1. Democracy & Economy
  2. Corruption
  3. Election Integrity
  4. System Analysis
  5. Segregation Politics (the Religious Wrong)
  6. Fake-“Democratic” Party
  7. Establishment Hypocrisy
  8. Speaking Truth

 

I. Democracy & Economy

Democracy is needed in our economy lest economic despots destroy democracy and a worthy life for all. Karl Marx figured this out nearly two centuries ago. Are we finally catching up to grasp it, too?

Marxism: Democracy in the Workplace — Interview of Richard Wolff by Jimmy Dore

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Marxist Economic Theory Easily Explained w/Richard Wolff“)

 

II. Corruption

Corruption Gallore (report mixed with some humor, since it’s a comedy show, after all):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “~195~ New Proof About $21 Trillion Missing, Big Oil Hiring Fake Activists, & More“)

 

III. Election Integrity

(and government fake news)

Part 1: Fighting back against the establishment’s massive election theft.

Part 2: Government fake news.

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “[110] Election Integrity Activist Reveals Huge Holes In The System“)

Good suggestion made: Traceable paper ballots and observable genuine audits.

Question: What about observable, genuine vote counting like other countries have? (Yes! In other countries EVERY counted vote is automatically audited IN PUBLIC. They have competing-party members verify each other’s counts! Each count!!! Why can’t we do that???!?!?!?!?!?????)

Recommended books and links given by Lora Chamberlain in this interview:

  • “CODE RED” by Jonathan Simon (on computerized election theft and the new American Century) .
  • Democracy Lost”, the (free!) report by Election Justice USA about the democratic primaries and all of the election fraud that occurred there.
  • Short youtube videos by Dr. Alex Halderman from the University of Michigan on computerized election fraud, making it really simple to understand .
  • Verifiedvoting.org is the place to go for knowing what kind of voting machines / election machinery you have (and maybe info on audits and fraudits?)
  • Common Cause and Public Citizen are very interested in this issue and they put up a website Secure Our Vote (also has other participants/sponsors like RockTheVote, StandUpAmerica, Center for American Progress, and Democracy 21) — They have short webinars with excellent guests on their resource pages. These webinars let us get up to speed quickly.

Further resources and informations can be found on CLEAN COUNT COOK COUNTY

and also here on Beanstock’s World[1][2].

Great call: Stop being an establishment pawn!

 

IV. System Analysis

Important stats. And a vision: end the war among ourselves.

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “What You’re NOT Told About Unemployment w/Peter Joseph pt. 2”)

 

V. Segregation Politics (the Religious Wrong)

Creation of the Religious “Right”:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “How The Religious Right Became A Political Force |AJ+“)

 

VI. Fake-“Democratic” Party

“Demosaurs” and the civil war in the “Democratic” Party — a party thereby headed for extinction:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Bill Clinton Reportedly Instructed Tom Perez to Stop Bernie Sanders’ Influence”)

 

VII. Establishment Hypocrisy

Unfortunately, this video only focuses on (R)-hypocrisy letting some (D)-hypocrisy shine through between the lines, though. Let’s remember, the establishement hypocrisy on which the twin-party tyranny lives is horrible and for us to end:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Greatest Hypocrisies In The Trump Era“)

 

VIII. Speaking Truth

Great conversation between Jesse Ventura and Jimmy Dore:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “How Jesse Ventura Would Run For President In 2020 -pt. 3”)

One of many good points from Jesse: Government has to earn patriotism. Government cannot mandate patriotism.

Please widely share links to these articles, so this work is not for naught. You can also help in other ways (including much needed financial support). Only together can we change this messed-up world. Let’s do it! 🙂

 

 

Video Weekend 04-07-2018, Part B: Jimmy Dore (5 neat videos)

Last weekend, I featured Lee Camp a lot (including a “So, who is Lee?” segment sharing a more personal interview with him). This weekend, a lot of great Jimmy Dore videos piled up, most of which I didn’t have the time to include in yesterday’s video weekend compilation. To repair that, here are the ones I couldn’t include yesterday but would have liked to. They are some of his best. If you missed them during the last few days, I hope you have the time today to watch them. Enjoy! Especially #2 is superb!

 

I. Good one: Behold the lock-step march of the establishment’s propaganda-spewing Big Media monopoly, spiked with their script-reading talking heads (all massively overpaid so they won’t question their treacherous work). Jimmy reminds us how this propaganda army was enabled by Bill Clinton and the neoliberal Fake-Democrats, out to destroy the last vestiges of democracy together with their Republican buddies while pretending to protect it. The work of two corrupt political gangs… pardon me… “parties”:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Sinclair Media Nightmare Made Possible By Clinton & Democrats“)

 

II. Excellent one: Upsetting the apple cart. Tim Canova, who challenged utterly corrupt Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2016 and – by all appearance – was cheated out of the race with election fraud just like Bernie Sanders, has left the “Democratic” Party to fight Wasserman Schultz from the outside since fighting from the inside was made impossible by the corrupt party bosses. This led to a really cool conversation with Jimmy Dore about our rigged elections (and the Russian phantoms) with some hard facts:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Tim Canova Leaves Democratic Party & Support Increases”)

The point: when retaking democracy from within the “Democratic” Party is impossible (because of systemic criminality in the party leadership), then the fight must be brought from the outside.   Continue reading “Video Weekend 04-07-2018, Part B: Jimmy Dore (5 neat videos)”

Obituary for a Journalist

Caitlin Johnstone is one of those passionate citizen journalists we need more of. I have been too busy writing my own articles to follow her closely; but every once in a while I come across one of her articles and am usually very positively impressed, either with her revelations or her way with words. Yesterday I chanced on a recently written piece in which she laments the death of a professional journalist whom she considers to have been one of the rare beasts in that zoo who was driven by the need to make our world better rather than his own career path. Wrapped up in her obituary there are, as one can expect, big picture notions of profundity worth reading. Here is a quote:  Continue reading “Obituary for a Journalist”
