It took nearly two months for my last post on this channel to get a single like. Maintaining small channels with fewer following than my personal channel seems pointless. The next goal before I restart posting here will be to exceed ten thousand following via invites. That's going to take a while. Until then, this channel is in hibernation mode ...

We need to migrate our nation away from polluting fossil fuels towards a Green energy future before the accelerating effects of global warming doom our civilization ~ such will require a Green New Deal and it will be on us, the protest movements of this generation, to see that Greener future realized ...

Unless we protect our water, there is no economy. There are no jobs. There is no life. The choice is very simple — we must protect the water that supports the life of people and the life of our planet.

The Obama administration engaged in more whistleblower prosecutions than all previous presidencies combined, and it seems that Trump wants to build on that legacy ~ not in a good way ... "They're in for a rude awakening if they believe they can just order these experts to ignore the reality, all of the data, and just claim there is no such thing as climate science or global warming," says Jason Zuckerman, a former legal adviser to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, who worked on the Obama administration's Whistleblower Protection Advisory Committee. https://www.propublica.org/special/sealing-loose-lips-charting-obamas-crackdown-on-national-security-leaks

Secular Talk Radio - The Kyle Kulinski Show

We're talking about overturning the plutocracy, restoring democratic values by making bribery illegal again ... `Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes said he didn't "think that's a serious thing," adding that "we should all worry" if someone were seeking to change the First Amendment. He suggested that came from the Democratic Party, which "had a campaign plank to change the First Amendment, and they were doing it in the guise of campaign finance reform." / Democrats, including Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, vowed to engage in campaign finance reform following the election — a cause that has been bolstered in recent years by the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision. The 2010 ruling deemed that corporations and labor unions were people who could flex First Amendment rights in contributing to campaigns, and it led to the advent of so-called super PACs.` http://www.businessinsider.com/jeff-bewkes-time-warner-first-amendment-democrats-trump-2016-12

This is just more innuendo that Russia was responsible for the election outcome? I've yet to see any real proof of that beyond the veil of "confidence" and government secrecy ... I'll be waiting, meantime ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4D92Gc7f6Lk

`It will be easy to prove to all but the most purblind partisans that Russia had the intent of electing Trump. But it will be much more difficult to prove that Russia did in fact elect Trump. That may never be provable. Unless evidence emerges that Russia specifically altered vote counts, Republicans will always be able to say it was something else and turn it back on Hillary.` http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/12/10/world-war-iii-democrats-and-america-vs-trump-and-russia.html

I don't usually like to share from this channel due to a negativity bias, but this one's good ... "Democrats – still eager to make sense of their election loss and to find causes for it other than themselves – immediately declared these anonymous claims about what the CIA believes to be true, and, with a somewhat sweet, religious-type faith, treated these anonymous assertions as proof of what they wanted to believe all along: that Vladimir Putin was rooting for Donald Trump to win and Hillary Clinton to lose and used nefarious means to ensure that outcome. That Democrats are now venerating unverified, anonymous CIA leaks as sacred is par for the course for them this year, but it’s also a good indication of how confused and lost U.S. political culture has become in the wake of Trump’s victory."

How Hillary Clinton Stole The Nomination:
MSM: "Russia hacked our election."
Americans: "Where is the proof?"
MSM: "Anonymous sources within the government conducted their secret investigation and they swear it's true."

This is what protests looked like in South Korea. Click on them. They shut it down. MILLIONS joined in. Forced the impeachment of their President this week.

Trump deserves protests like this. I refuse to call him President.

He's a scoundrel through and through.

Bernie Sanders Draws Fire After Lefties Misinterpret Him On 'Identity Politics'

Must applaud Bernie Sanders' statement ... https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2016/12/bernie-sanders-nailed-it-on-identity-politics-and.html

“It goes without saying that as we fight to end all forms of discrimination, as we fight to bring more and more women into the political process, Latinos, African Americans, Native Americans — all of that is enormously important, and count me in as somebody who wants to see that happen. / Right now, we’ve made some progress in getting women into politics — I think we got 20 women in the Senate now. We need 50 women in the Senate. We need more African Americans. / But it’s not good enough to say, “Hey, I’m a Latina, vote for me.” That is not good enough. I have to know whether that Latina is going to stand up with the working class of this country, and is going to take on big money interests. / One of the struggles that we’re going to have right now, we lay on the table of the Democratic Party, is it’s not good enough to me to say, “Okay, well we’ve got X number of African Americans over here, we’ve got Y number of Latinos, we have Z number of women. We are a diverse party, a diverse nation. / But, but here is my point, and this is where there is going to be division within the Democratic Party. It is not good enough for someone to say, “I’m a woman! Vote for me!” No, that’s not good enough. What we need is a woman who has the guts to stand up to Wall Street, to the insurance companies, to the drug companies, to the fossil fuel industry. / In other words, one of the struggles that you’re going to be seeing in the Democratic Party is whether we go beyond identity politics.”

Numerous lefty publications called out Bernie Sanders after misinterpreting a statement he made about identity politics. Katie Halper weighs in on the piece.

I've yet to see an article proving that Russia stole the election for Trump ... all I ever find on the topic is innuendo and state secrecy masquerading as "confidence" ... at least Wikileaks kept things out in the open ...

- enough of the BS about stealing the election. This is CIA & State Dept propaganda trying to legitimatize their increased hostilities towards Russia.

Years of Living Dangerously - Fueling the Fire - Season 2 Episode 4

@ 29:38 `Climate change is especially dangerous because it makes everything else more dangerous. So, it's what the department [of defense] calls in its own strategy documents a threat accelerator. When you have a place where you've got a weak government and a poor economy, and then you add into it a drought, an extreme weather event or a food shortage that's all being affected by climate change, that's when things begin to break down and you see conflict, you see people move, and that's when you have a security challenge.` Sharon Burke, former assistant secretary of defense.

Big money corrupting politics continues to be my topmost concern ... that said, I take it that this was the source of that statistic ... `Out of the 75 landing team members announced by the Trump Transition organization, 70 percent (53 members) have some corporate affiliation. Some are CEOs (Paul Atkins, Willie Gaynor, Tom Leppert, Ray Washburne), some served corporations as lobbying or legal clients (Joel Leftwich, Doug Domenech, Robert Mackichan, Ronald Tenpas), some worked at the Heritage Foundation or other corporate-backed think tanks (Justin Johnson, Jim Carafano, Thomas Pyle, Myron Ebell).

Obama calls for 'full review' of election hacks before Trump takes office

`American intelligence agencies have concluded with “high confidence” that Russia acted covertly in the latter stages of the presidential campaign to harm Hillary Clinton’s chances and promote Donald J. Trump, according to senior administration officials.` I'm always looking for detailed information about the how and why regarding that "high confidence", but all I ever find is innuendo and government secrecy ~ this article is no exception ... that said, my sole hope regarding these investigations is that it will improve our election integrity to the point that our democratic elections are no longer ranked dead last in the free world ... http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/09/us/obama-russia-election-hack.html?_r=0

The most immediate effects of climate change are already droughts causing desertification, wildfires, food and water shortages, terrorism, human mass-migrations, resource wars, and an increase in superstorms and floods ... the Syrian refugee crisis is the tip of the icebergs, as these shifts accelerate, our civilization will struggle to cope ... to what few conservatives reading this, denial can only last for so long until reality repeatedly slaps you across the face ...

Sounds about right.

We all need to be having these conversations to promote critical thinking and ultimately empower our public purpose.

Challenge previously held positions and beliefs.

Our constitution Guarantees us democratic socialism. Govt for, of, and by the people is socially owned govt for our general Welfare. That's democratic Socialism enshrined in our constitution. Read the preamble, read article 1 section 8 of our constitution. This is about govt provisioning a civil Society in perpetuity.

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=425022714736368&id=100016859292502

The mainstream media butchers the word "socialism" but even worse they undermine our public purpose...

We have a socially owned, CURRENCY issuer and regulatory authority (congress) who is CONSTITUTIONALLY mandated to mint and tax to provide for our general Welfare and common defense, TO INSURE DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY (our public purpose).

Every job that pays dollars and all income denominated in dollars is ALWAYS COMPLETELY DEPENDENT on indefinite federal spending to maintain that paid employment or income denominated in dollars. So how our CURRENCY ISSUING federal government spends, taxes, abd regulates, CENTRALLY PLANS how we organize our Capitalist economy in reality today. Put reality over ideology.

CAPITALISM only even exists in the PRIVATE sector, and only to the extent our socially owned govt allows through the way it spends taxes and regulates. Govt owns the PRIVATE sector completely with it's power to impose tax, and then be the MONOPOLY ISSUER of the only tax credit, dollars.. So nobody even truly owns land in AMERICA, In reality we all RENT (pay tax) just like communist china and the rest of the world.. The ONLY "Free" market (as described by right wing neo-liberals) is the BLACK MARKET. The dollars in your pocket belong to the govt, and they are all subject to recall (taxation) at anytime PER THE CONSTITUTION. We can only LEGALLY spend the GOVTS dollars on the regulated market which is only created by INDEFINITE federal spending, taxing, and regulating SUPPOSEDLY for our GENERAL WELFARE.

SO what the media is trashing as "evil socialism" is just scare tactics based in fantasy. We need our CURRENCY issuing federal government to spend the dollars required to provide all the essential real resources a modern, civil Society REQUIRES to exist in perpetuity. Real resources like a military for the common defense, and infrastructure and healthcare and education etc to provide for our General Welfare, to INSURE DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY. Because it's essential we have smart, healthy POPULATIONS with opportunity and justice for all, for AMERICA to exist in perpetuity. Look up Drs Stephanie Kelton and Fadhel Kaboub to start. .

"Donald Trump has been compromised''. 11/21/2017. Luke Harding's book "collusion" was reviewed with him, live on NPR yesterday during the "Fresh Air" segment, hosted by Terry Gross. The entire transcript is on my FB page.
A word about "Independents", that term is merely a voter registration designation. It means nothing much about the convictions of the person who holds that registration.

All of the Bernie supporters who spout off about Sanders being an "Independent" and not a Democrat are deluded! They have been propagandized by the Democratic Party to see that voter designation as a free thinking and acting individual who stands above "Party". Not so!

In the case of Sanders he has had a long time agreement with the Democratic Party in his Sate of Vermont. This agreement is that the D. Party would not run serious candidates against him for the Senatorial Race. In return Sanders follows their Party line and votes on their Bills in Congress.
Sanders acts as a Democrat walks and talks as a Democrat of the "Old Guard". He uses the stand by language of the Old Timers Union Organizer. This is why he "sounds" like a Socialist! But Sanders is far from a Socialist and Hillary framed the term for him of "Democratic Socialist" taken from the same time of FDR and used for the purposes of painting Bernie "leftist" in order to run in the Democratic Primary 2016 against herself in a controlled oppositional relationship.
