The Corporate Media Misfire on Donald Trump & the Bernie Sanders Solution



Published on Aug 24, 2015


The corporate media pundits have been utilizing the candidacy of Donald Trump as a distraction from the grassroots revolution of Bernie Sanders. And, they have unleashed a monster. Sane Progressive calls out the media strategy behind this disaster and implores the right and left to unite behind the one candidate who will serve us all. Time to stop hurling stones at each other and perpetuating the division that keeps us all oppressed.

She's got a great series of videos going...I'm enjoying these, how about you? I think she knocks it outta the park, spot on.

There really is a populist/progressive social movement starting up, I'm loving every moment, and I know this is just the beginning. There is a long road ahead when you are fighting an entrenched, corporate system bent on taking our voices & replacing everything we hold dear with their vision of America.

Sane Progressive on 'Republican Troll' Narrative to Squash Legitimate Political Debate



Published on Aug 20, 2015


The Hillary Clinton campaign and supporters have issued a remarkably anti-democratic talking point that has taken hold across social media sites. They are purporting any critique or criticism of Clinton's record is bashing and divisive. Additionally, it asserts that those are challenging her record on the merit are not progressives or Democrats, at all. We are smeared as undercover Republican Troll Political operatives who are being sent out to divide the party. This is not only false, it is insulting to those of us who believe that a MANDATORY part of the primary process is investigating candidates and sharing relevant information with fellow liberals. The fact that her record reads as a betrayal to liberal values and policies, so much so that it reads as a smear, is not the fault of the messenger who point it out but of the politician who enacted those betrayals. This is typical smear/kill the messenger to silence legitimate debate. It has no place in a democratic process. It is manipulative. Hell, it is downright Orwellian. And, in a time when Social Media is the last outlet citizens have to counter the falsehoods of the corporately owned television, radio, and news publications, it can't be allowed to stand.

Any of this sound familiar?

What If The "Crash" Is as Rigged as Everything Else? Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds

August 26, 2015

Take your pick--here's three good reasons to engineer a "crash" that benefits the few at the expense of the many.

There is an almost touching faith that markets are rigged when they loft higher, but unrigged when they crash. Who's to say this crash isn't rigged? A few things about this "crash" (11% decline from all time highs now qualifies as a "crash" don't pass the sniff test.

Exhibit 1: VIX volatility Index soars to "the world is ending" levels when the S&P 500 drops a relatively modest 11%. The VIX above 50 is historically associated with declines of 20% or more--double the current drop.

When the VIX spiked above 50 in 2008, the market ended up down 57%. Now that's a crash.

In the game where everything is rigged, EVERYTHING is deliberate. Apparently, Charles is familiar with Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine.

Smoke and Mirrors of Corporate Buybacks Behind the Market Crash



Published on Aug 25, 2015

Michael Hudson, the author of Killing the Host: How Financial Parasites and Debt Destroy Global Economy, says the stock market crash on Monday has very little to do with China and all to do with short-termism and buybacks of corporations inflating their own stocks.

Michael Hudson explains the latest "crash", as usual he lays it out so we can all understand. It may be the popular thing to blame China, but guess what? It's not them. As we've come to expect there's a lot of corruption via the banksters' & corporations' manipulations. We are not in recovery, we are in realization of how corrupt & phoney & enabled the whole damned system is. When fines instead of prison is all they face, who care about law?

We've always had cheating, even Wilkerson admits it's something the GOP loves. Cheating runs rampant, is more sophisticated now, without any trace, how convenient. Please give him a listen.
