In all truth, visa-less immigration — typically smeared as “illegal immigration” as if running for a chance at life were a crime — happens with the approval by our state and federal governments who quietly let it happen in order to please our cheap-labor-hungry plutocracy. The displays of border fences and walls, border patrols, and ICE raids are really nothing but dog-and-pony shows to (A) pretend that this form of immigration which leaves these immigrants bereft of rights is not an establishment-run affair in collusion with our bought government, and (B) divide the working people in our country against each other, lest they unite to overthrow the plutocracy and build a democracy in America. Continue reading “Raiding Immigrants to Divide the People and Protect the Oligarchs”
An immigration hysteria has invaded our immigrant nation. It has divided American voters, boosted dangerous politics, resulted in horrible crimes, and obfuscated the true causes of our problems. Both corrupt major parties are pouring gasoline on this fire for their party bosses and secret donors to benefit.
While I don’t share the xenophobic fears of certain people, I have a piece of advice for them: If you worry about too many immigrants, don’t go criminal or inhumane. Don’t waste time on building walls, either. Eliminate the cause of mass migrations, instead. Continue reading “Ending Mass Migration”
When you believe that immigration without a visa is a high crime deserving the deportation of people who grew up here, the tearing apart of families and kidnapping (plus “losing!”) of children, and even point blank execution by government agents — all because you have come to fear immigrants as the cause of unwanted changes in your home culture or competition for scarce job opportunities, then you have clearly had your mind manipulated by the blackhearted lords of the oligarchy in which we live — a fake democracy where you have no say at your places of work and only a non-counting vote in our public affairs.

I. The People’s Wishes
Polls reveal popular policies:

Corporate media blocking a constructive public conversation:

III. Oligarchy (Plutocracy) vs Democracy
The mentality of the lords and our suffering society. Billionaire’s quote: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Billionaires Justifying Their Wealth: ALWAYS Great Content“)
Comment: “Generational theft”, one of those manipulative brainwashing canards from the establishment, suggests that the old are stealing from the young. News flash: the young will become old and wish to retire when their bodies give out. That’s what Social Security was invented for, to ensure at the public level what t the private level often fails, say when senors’ kids died or are too poor themselves to help them through that difficult last phase of life.
Comment: The “entitlement problem”… When I think of an entitlement problem, I think of the billionaires (the 1%) and their right and left hands (the next 10 to 20%) who live in privilege that 99.9% of them were born into (the others being gold diggers and unscrupulous business predators such as hedge fund managers). They think they are entitled to owning the whole world and having us unwashed masses exit purely to serve them and powder their asses. But those very same demon lords paid PR crooks in “think tanks”, the twin-party tyranny, and the mass media to flip the term and accuse out of luck working class Americans of “entitlement” when they gratefully accept desperately needed help from a government that was created by our founders specifically to lend such help as part of serving the people. The hypocrisy and entitlement thinking of the parasites and predators living a demon lords life at the top of our dungheap society, such as this guy squeezing his wealth from thousands of Home Depot workers, are really stunning. Their motto: Me and my friends have done well. So, what’s the problem?
Antidemocratic philosophies and machinations:

IV. Political Corruption
The party bosses personally rig the primaries:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Progressive Catches Dem’s Rigging Ballot Selection In New Jersey“)
Why not to vote Republican (no reason to vote “Democratic” either):
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Republican Voters Get SLAPPED With Reality“)
Let’s not forget that voting for establishment “Democrats” is also self-defeating for the American People.
V. The People’s Fight
Great ideas, including the building of a broad progressive tent (~6:56):

News Update on the People’s Grass Roots Fight: A Teacher running amazingly successfully against a party boss, being blocked out by the media, and having an army of volunteers…
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Progressive FIERCELY Challenging Corrupt Corporatist Dianne Feinstein“)
VI. Economic Truths
The truth about risks and profits (risks for us, profits for the rich). Workers run more risks than entrepreneurs and investors:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Economic Update: Another Gilded Age“)
Gist: We are always being told that capitalist inequality is justified by entrepreneurs/investors taking risks with their wealth when they invest into businesses. In truth, if they are half-way smart or well consulted, their eggs are never in a single basket. Meanwhile, workers who “choose” to work for them can loose their jobs, employability, homes, healthcare, and families when those entrepreneurs/investors or their CEOs make mistakes or callous decisions. As workers, in our current system, we live at the mercy of the plutocrats, A.K.A. the 1% and their henchmen.
Money is political, bank magic, inflation, deflation, gold standard, bitcoin, growing fascism, system analysis, DM, healthcare profiteering, pretenses of right-wing populists, changing the conversation…:

VII. Historic Causes
How our society of plight and suffering was built:
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The American Industrial Revolution“)
(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Just the Facts: The Emergence of Modern America- The Gilded Age“)
VIII. Poverty and Ethics

Empire’s Dark Side (esp. interesting the unconstitutionality of U.S. wars and empire 12:43 min in):

Ending Note: It takes me at least 100 hours of spare time each month to research and write news updates and analyses and work on my book. 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! 🙂
Modern forms of democracy were invented to restore to the members of large societies their self-determination and their participation in large-scale decision making which our ancestors, living in purely small communities, had always enjoyed. It is in our nature that we desire to have a say in our own affairs, both large and small. Without this, we easily feel enslaved, and – more importantly – actually ARE enslaved, even if we have been duped into being unaware of it. We want freedom. We want our say. But when we are duped, we lose both.
In the modern case of sly enslavement, we typically only feel the horrors of denied healthcare, broken dreams, blocked opportunities, crushed hopes, financial despair, and the shame imposed on us when we get blamed for our situation, even if overwhelming outside forces brought each of us there. We feel the pain, but we fail to notice our enslavement coupled with our loss of democracy. Continue reading “Allies Against Democracy”
To solve our tragic and growing problems while we still can(!), we must put aside traditional party allegiances and blind loyalties, and instead join forces to focus primarily on election integrity (so our votes count and aren’t suppressed), on getting money out of politics (so our votes even matter), and on reforming our extremely rigged economic system so it can’t continue to fuel money in politics and the manipulative narratives which currently shape much of public opinion. Blood money from our rigged economy finances two corrupt major parties, an army of lobbyists 42,000 strong, and nation-wide brainwashing through “think tanks” and corporate mass media. This is how the establishment recovered from FDR’s New Deal and re-corrupted absolutely everything. I suppose that, while we are at it, we should also break up the big media trusts, not just the big banks. What say? In the meantime, let’s make use of and support alternative media like this one, so we can grow our own awareness and that of those around us. Naturally, let’s push for our immediate needs, as well: healthcare for all and reasonable drug prices, income security, a fair corruption-free justice and law enforcement system, free education at all levels, protection of communities and the environment, and so on.
Be a leader. Be one of the first to vote outside the twin party tyranny when outside candidates are far better than the corporate stooges dominating the Dempublican charade. There are still people who let themselves be played by the you-can’t-vote-third-party-or-independent-unless-the-majority-is-already-doing-so fib. That’s a trick to maintain the status-quo, and the way to break through this is to lead the way rejecting this false choice narrative.

We are used to presidents, CEOs, and so forth to be above the law in our country. They have demonstrated that they can commit any crime (lie, steal, torture, and mass murder) and get away with it. However, let’s realize that we can change this. Let’s take a look at other countries, Peru for example. Former Peruvian President Fujimori was recently released after many years spent in jail — supposedly on humanitarian grounds because of bad health at his old age. His successor (Toledo) is currently taking cover in the U.S. with an international arrest warrant issued against him. His successor (Humala) is currently being investigated, and his successor (Kuczynski), who is the current president in office, is also in the cross hairs already. Wait a moment… just another moment… Yup! Kuczynski just stepped down shortly before an assured impeachment. Let’s see if he manages to flee the country before he is apprehended.
