Democrats are so desperate for votes that finally admit openly that they are corrupted!


The Deputy Chair of Civic Engagement of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Frank Spencer, made some stunning admissions during his recent speech at Politicon.

Concerning of what the American people really want, it was like he was discovering a new habitable planet:

We found that a solid majority of Americans wanted universal government-sponsored healthcare, and even almost half of all Republicans did.

A majority wanted stronger unions, again across the political spectrum, especially workers, but everyone.

Two-thirds of Americans wanted tuition free college.

Non-interventionism was very popular. As we know, a number of Trump voters voted that way because of his promises to keep us out of conflicts.

Almost everyone in our survey and in the polls thinks that Wall Street has way too much influence, and many people would said they would get rid of corporate lobbying altogether.

And here comes the better part:

Once we had understood these concerns, that we had failed to address, we began to look at how we could do so in the future. And that's when we realized we couldn't. Our hands were tied, in large part because of our donors (!).

Medicare for all, would be a disaster for the insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies who are very important donors to our party. They loved Obamacare, which, however, did not lower costs. And medicare for all, which would, these companies did not like quite as much.

Strong unions would be horrible for many of our friends in the management community.

The schools that almost all of us hail from, might not take so well to the idea of tuition free colleges, which would bite into some of their profits.

It would be pretty hard for military contractors to give up the four hundred billion dollars that flows their way, in part stimulated by foreign interventions.

And as for preventing corporations from lobbying in government, or providing public financing of the elections, it's hard to imagine that any of our donors who would like that very much.


These are really stunning admissions on behalf of the DNC. Never before the Dems have gone that far to admit, essentially, that they are corrupted! As you will see in the video, Jimmy Dore and the others in The Young Turks didn't buy it. It appears that they support that actually Spencer was not speaking on behalf of DNC and DNC will eventually be forced to deny what Spencer said.

Well, as much as surprising it may sound, maybe not!

Simply because the Democrats understand that they are about to be vanished from the US political map in case that Bernie Sanders form his own political party towards real Socialism. This is probably a desperate last effort to keep their electoral base and attract more voters, especially from the American youth, in order to stay alive and win the 2020 election.

Besides, everyone knows that the Democrats are corrupted and in bed with the bankers and the lobbyists for years, just like the Republicans. So, what more could possibly lose? This could be their last card to play, declaring that they are regretted for their stance in order to persuade voters that they are really willing to bring a radical change in the Democratic party that will make the difference for the first time after decades.

So, at this point, Jimmy Dore is probably right in a sense that this is just another trick of the DNC to regain the lost electoral power. This is probably the ultimate effort to prevent Bernie Sanders from forming a political movement that will become a real threat for the establishment. Once they will get the votes they want, crushing Bernie, they will practically maintain their 'business as usual' functioning. That is whatever their neoliberal donors want: more for-profit wars, even less welfare state, further deregulation in finance and labor sector, more privatizations, etc. In other words, continuation of the same policies towards Feudalism 2.0, as scheduled.

After all, remember what Donald Trump was saying before the elections and what he did right after he got elected. It seems that, indeed, the only salvation for the US right now is the formation of a political movement that will really serve the American people, away from the bipartisan fraud.

In any case, this is a significant turning point for the Democrats, thanks to Bernie Sandrers, but mostly, thanks to the American youth that overwhelmingly supported him. Because it forces Democrats for the first time after decades to declare clearly that they are willing to move further to the Left, abandon big money, serve the majority of the American people, even if they are doing it as a political maneuver to save themselves from extinction.

P.S.: Consider this article also as a prank, but wait until announcements by the Dems ...

MSNBC poll on Julian Assange backfires epically

globinfo freexchange
Frequently - if not always - polls set-up by corporate media aim to track public opinion on a specific issue. The results could be used by the deep state apparatus in order to justify an action, or, figure out how to handle a negative trend for the deep state agenda.
Of course, the question could be set-up in a very simplified and convenient manner, so that the results could be translated accordingly.
Yet, the results from the following MSNBC poll on Julian Assange are so devastating for the deep state planning that leave little room for any misconception and manipulation.
Specifically, you have two options to answer the following question: “Should Julian Assange be prosecuted for his involvement in WikiLeaks?
The first option is to answer that "Yes, he is a criminal."
The second option is to answer that "No, he is a whistleblower and deserves protection."
At the time we checked out the results, the second answer prevailed overwhelmingly with 95% (~1…

Trump's failure to start a civil war in Venezuela could be proved disastrous for the plans of the US imperialists

by system failure
Donald Trump and his bloodthirsty warhawks are about to break the record of failed attempted coups against a single country. Concerning Latin America, the US imperialists were setting the desirable conditions for their corporate beasts usually by overthrowing governments and supporting military dictatorships.
But Trump himself has already broken another record. The record of not keeping his promises to the American people - every one of them. The 'anti-interventionist', 'anti-establishment' Trump, has already started a war against Venezuela, which so far includes brutal economic sanctions, sabotage operations, attempted coups. Trump not only does whatever he can in order to satisfy the US neocon/neoliberal establishment and the deep state, but especially in the case of Venezuela, he follows the obsolete CIA playbook to the letter.
So, after a series of failed orchestrated coups, Trump's warhawks attempted to start a civil war in Venezuela by mobiliz…

Former top US official confirms: military action against Venezuela will become a Vietnam 2.0 for the US imperialists

globinfo freexchange
Former US Chief of Staff for Secretary of State, Lawrence Wilkerson, spoke with Sharmini Peries of the Real News about Trump's plans for a potential US military action against Venezuela.

As he pointed out:
Elliott Abrams, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, and the administration’s approach to Venezuela, is as if they were Panama or they were Honduras. They are not. They’re very professional. That puts them above Argentina, above Chile, whose militaries are quite competent, too. 
Mr. Trump ought to be very, very careful about saying he’s going to send marines or soldiers to Venezuela because the Venezuelan military will be unified immediately. It will take to the hills and it will fight as the Vietnamese did during the Vietnam War, and as the Taliban are in Afghanistan right now: to the last marine, to the last soldier.
Putin is a smart man, probably told Trump 'you don’t want to get involved in those jungles. You don’t want to get involved in those mountains. You …

Latest ridiculous attempts by the US propaganda machine on Gaza, Venezuela – enjoy

globinfo freexchange
Plenty of propaganda is manufactured by the US deep state apparatus to push for the imperialist agenda. Yet, some elements of the propaganda machine are still unable to realize that independent truth seekers and real journalists are watching, and therefore, these elements could be easily exposed.
Sloppy efforts immediately backfire in social media and the Internet. Most recent sloppy efforts are related to Gaza and Venezuela.
As the Newsweekreported:
Senior 2020 Trump campaign adviser Katrina Pierson used a 2015 video showing a Ukrainian rocket launch alongside comments about this weekend's deadly attacks between Israel and Gaza militants and a condemnation of congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Pierson, who was Donald Trump's 2016 campaign spokesperson and is a frequent cable news guest, shared the video—which was first posted online in 2015 and reportedly shows Ukraine launching dozens of rockets at Russian-backed separatists—on Sunday.

Chelsea Manning proves that she is a real hero

globinfo freexchange
Outside of an Alexandria, Virginia courtroom, Chelsea Manning explained to reporters why she would refuse to testify before a second grand jury investigating Wikileaks' Julian Assange, and as a result, face jail time once again. On May 9, Manning was released from jail because the term of the last grand jury she refused to testify before expired. She was immediately subpoenaed once again—for May 16.
Her following words clearly depict that Chelsea Manning is a person with strong and solid principles and a real hero:
I will not cooperate with this or any other grand jury, so it doesn’t matter what it is, or what the case is. I’m just not going to comply or cooperate. Facing jail again, potentially today, doesn’t change my stance. The prosecutors are deliberately placing me in an impossible position: go to jail and face the prospect of being held in contempt again, or, in the alternative, foregoing my principles, the strong positions that I have, that I hold dear…

CNN sets up a fully controlled audience panel to promote pro-establishment candidates using Bernie Sanders progressive agenda

 An example of advanced psy-ops by the corporate media 

globinfo freexchange

As we wrote recently, the moment where the crowd inside the Fox ultra-right nest enthusiastically cheers in favor of a government-run healthcare system, could actually be considered a historical moment, thanks to Bernie Sanders.

The moment clearly depicts and officially marks the end of controlled audiences in controlled MSM environments. It shows that the well-paid MSM pundits and their producers are finding increasingly difficult to set up the scene according to the desirable agenda. Therefore, audience reactions can't be directed, or predicted in many cases by the MSM 'experts'.
Now, here is an example showing a successful set up through a controlled audience. It took place inside CNN and there is plenty of evidence that was indeed carefully set up. In the following video, Mike Figueredo of the Humanist Report felt optimistic, but also quite frustrated at the same time. Figueredo's reaction …

Fox clowns committed suicide by bringing Bernie Sanders inside their nest to destroy them

... and the liberal centrists must be really pissed off

It was epic indeed. The moment where the crowd inside the Fox ultra-right nest enthusiastically cheers in favor of a government-run healthcare system, could actually be considered a historical moment, thanks to Bernie Sanders.

It shows that the well-paid MSM pundits and their producers are finding increasingly difficult to set up the scene according to the desirable agenda.

The shock for the MSM tools was inevitable. It shows that they are now completely detached from the ordinary people and their problems.
But the whole thing highlighted something even more fundamental. It was another loud evidence for the fact that the BS neoliberal narratives don't work anymore.
And even more remarkably, th…

Chemical weapons assessment contradicting official Syria narrative is authentic

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has begun responding to queries by the press about a leaked document which contradicts official OPCW findings on an alleged chemical weapons attack last year in Douma, Syria. The prepared statement they’ve been using in response to these queries confirms the authenticity of the document.
To recap, a few days ago the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (WGSPM) published a document signed by a man named Ian Henderson, whose name is seen listed in expert leadership positions on OPCW documents from as far back as 1998 and as recently as 2018. It’s unknown who leaked the document and what other media organizations they may have tried to send it to.
The report picks apart the extremely shaky physics and narratives of the official OPCW analysis on the gas cylinders allegedly dropped from Syrian government aircraft in the Douma attack, and concludes that “The dimensions, characteristics and appearance of the cylinders, a…

Updates for a possible coup against Jeremy Corbyn

 globinfo freexchange

In this episode of RT's Going Underground, former MP and author of A Very British Coup and The Friends of Harry Perkins, Chris Mullin, spoke about the history of MI5 and MI6 meddling in UK politics against Labour Party leaders. He also estimated whether a British coup is underway against Jeremy Corbyn.
The story of A Very British Coup was set in the 1980s when there was speculation about the possibility of a government led by someone like Tony Benn and the establishment conspired to bring it down. The establishment in this case being a sort of mixture of the security and intelligence services, the media barons, with a little help from the Americans. 
Tony Benn looked likely to become deputy leader of the Labour Party which at the time was strongly challenging the government of Margaret Thatcher in the opinion polls. Persistent rumours circulated over the years about attempts by members of the British security services, and other wings of the British Establish…

Arms industry lobby likely among the forces behind the unthinkable BDS banning in Germany

globinfo freexchange

Recently, the German parliament passed an unprecedented legislation through which the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS) is now considered illegal!

As Sharmini Peries of the Real News reported:

The German parliament (Bundestag), has just passed an unprecedented piece of legislation condemning the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement, known as BDS. They deemed BDS as anti-Semitic and illegal. This makes Germany the first and only country in the world to criminalize the BDS movement.
The legislation was passed at lightning speed in Germany. The bill itself was well kept secret until only two days before the vote. It was initially promoted by the far-right pro Israeli parties, both the neoliberal Party FDP and the racist anti-immigrant party AFD. But members of all German parties ended up supporting it, even from the far left.

Peries spoke with the Real News correspondent, Shir Hever, who gave impressive details about the peculiar circumstances un…
