Video Weekend 06-23-2018 (12 videos)

This collection of informative online videos for weekend viewing deals especially with where our money goes (why we have so little and the rich so much), the scapegoating and persecution of immigrants, voter suppression and the secret dismantling of a moral society, the poor people’s campaign, and more. Stars: Paul Jay, Richard Wolff, Lee Camp, Jimmy Dore (a lot), Thom Hartmann, Greg Palast, Nick Braña, and Martin Luther King.

IV. Jimmy Dore

Immigration: Jimmy Dore & Abby Martin had a long discussion on the demonization and abuse of immigrants in our immigrant nation. Flogging and murdering the slaves (the refugee and migrant worker ones) instead of reforming the rigged economy…:

2. Party Corruption: And if you still had any doubts that the “Democratic” Party is just as corrupt as the Republican party and both are essentially acting in concert on behalf of the oligarchy, hear this:

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! 🙂

Voter Fraud, Yes or No?

Should the topic heat up, I may write an entire post about how the myth of voter fraud fails to meet reality and is used to justify and hide election theft (the latter consisting of election fraud and voter suppression, as well as gerrymandering and such). For now, I am too busy to dedicate a whole article to it in addition to having mentioned the issue here and there before. However, for those who are curious (say because of Trump’s latest stirrings in this direction), there is a pretty good article on CNET, called: Voter fraud and dead people: How tech sets things right
