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 ...

How CIA altered the ending of Orwell's 'Animal Farm' to project Communism as the sole tyrannic system

globinfo freexchange

This interesting short documentary by AJ+, explores the cultural war between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War. In an effort to project Communism as the evil against capitalist West and the "free world", CIA had to covertly interfere through various ways in art, music, literature, philosophy.

In one of these cases, the documentary reveals how CIA altered the ending of Orwell's 'Animal Farm' to project Communism as the sole tyrannic system. It is also interesting the fact that the case involved an animated film, indicating that CIA's cultural propaganda was targeting minor Americans in order to "train" them ideologically.

According to the story, George Orwell, who wrote such middle-school classics as 1984 and Animal Farm, described himself as a Democratic Socialist. And he was actually pretty anti-Stalinist and anti-Soviet-style socialism, something which was unusual among Leftist circles at the time.

We already live in a permanent recession in which the Wall Street mafia secretly and continuously is being bailed out with billions by the Fed!

Jimmy Dore and Dylan Ratigan explain in this video the secret mechanism through which the Fed is permanently bailing out the Wall Street mafia with billions. 
Dore refers to a September article by CNN Business with information that, under normal circumstances, should have made big headlines, generating massive anger.
We were trained not to be surprised by the liquidity injections that the central banks like the Fed and ECB provide to the biggest financial institutions. When at the same time, the real economy, and especially the small-medium business sector is literally struggling to survive in the capitalist West.
Yet, in this case, some additional information reveals something impressive. As Dore highlights from the article: 
                  Until this week, the Fed hadn't launched an operation like this since 2008. [...] Still, the fact the Fed needed to pump $128 billion into the system on successive days shows that a crack has emerged in a seldom-discusse…

It's now or never: the first step for a Sanders/Corbyn synchronization in power must be done on 12 December in UK

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the global working class
by system failure
Two years ago, we wondered whether a US government under Bernie Sanders, together with a UK government under Jeremy Corbyn, could mark a decisive victory against neoliberalism. Whether it could mark the beginning of the end of the Reagan/Thatcher awful legacy.

It seems that the time has come for the first step towards this prospect.

The oncoming UK general election on Thursday 12 December 2019, will be the most critical for decades, especially for the global working class. The outcome will determine to a significant degree, whether the capitalist West will change course away from the destructive neoliberalism, towards a form of Democratic Socialism. A new model that will resurrect the social state, while at the same time, will seriously deal with the great environmental challenges, defying big interests and rejecting the for-profit-wars model.

The global youth radicalization and the fight for Socialism

by Eric London
Across the world, in countries as culturally distinct as Ecuador, Lebanon, France, Germany, the US, Iraq, Chile and Haiti, a new generation of working class youth is making its powerful entrance onto the battlefield of the global class struggle.

Citing the international scope of recent mass demonstrations, the Guardian's Simon Tisdall recently wrote: “Each country’s protests differ in detail, but recent upheavals do appear to share one key factor: youth ... This global phenomenon of unfulfilled youthful aspirations is producing political time bombs. Each month in India, one million people turn 18 and can register to vote. In the Middle East and North Africa, an estimated 27 million youngsters will enter the workforce in the next five years.

The political awakening of the most educated, urbanized and technologically interconnected generation in history is of critical strategic significance for the entire working class. 
Born beginning in the 1990s, today's youth…

Το Μητσοτακικό καθεστώς βάζει σε εφαρμογή το σχέδιο για τη δημιουργία κράτους σκληρής καταστολής

globinfo freexchange

Μετά το πρώτο βήμα που έκανε το Μητσοτακικό καθεστώς για τη δημιουργία Ειδικών Οικονομικών Ζωνών εντός της Ελληνικής επικράτειας, δηλαδή για τα φέουδα του 21ου αιώνα, όπως είχαμε προβλέψει, φαίνεται ότι, δυστυχώς, αρχίζει να επαληθεύεται και το σχέδιο για την ανασύσταση του δεξιού παρακράτους.  
Ήδη από το Μάιο του 18, είχαμε επισημάνει ότι σε ομιλία του στη βουλή, ο Μητσοτάκης ξεκίνησε το παραλήρημα του περί βίας αναφερόμενος συγκεκριμένα στα 'Εξάρχεια', τους 'Ρουβίκωνες' και τους 'αγανακτισμένους'. Και στο σημείο αυτό, πάλι κάτι ξέχασε: τους φασίστες.
Έτσι, έστειλε σήμα στους μηχανισμούς του αστικού καθεστώτος ότι θα συνεχίζει να το προστατεύει εγκαθιστώντας ένα κράτος σκληρής καταστολής, χωρίς να πειράξει το ακροδεξιό βαθύ κράτος που επιστρατεύει η εγχώρια ολιγαρχία όταν αισθάνεται κίνδυνο. Ένας κίνδυνος που μπορεί να έρθει σε περίπτωση νέων αναταραχών από τις βάναυσες πολιτικές λιτότητας που ο Μητσοτάκης θα συνεχίσει να εφαρμόζει π…

Trump threatens to transfer the endo-capitalist war into a civil war level

globinfo freexchange
Donald Trump finally counter-attacked against corporate Democrats and their persistent desire to impeach him, through the ultimate threat: a civil war. In a recent tweet he wrote:
"... If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.
....If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
Speaking to the Real News Network, Jeet Heer of The Nation pointed out:
The civil-war tweet is almost like a threat. It’s like, 'Well, this is a nice little Republic you got here, and it’d be a shame if anything happened to it.' But the thing is that this civil-war talk did not originate from T…

Under digital surveillance: how American schools spy on millions of kids

Fueled by fears of school shootings, the market has grown rapidly for technologies that monitor students through official school emails and chats
by Lois Beckett

Part 5 - Shifts in culture

School officials say that their primary motivation for using surveillance technology is the chance to save a student’s life. But schools are monitoring students’ digital documents in real time for a wide range of content they see as problematic, from swear words to nude images and pornography to cyberbullying to evidence of drug and alcohol use.

In Weld county, Colorado, a student emailed a teacher that she heard two boys were going to smoke weed in a bathroom, Hernandez, the student services and safety director, said. Gaggle immediately alerted school officials: “Within four minutes of her sending this email, the troops had deployed,” she said.
Gaggle also automatically sends students a scolding email any time they use a profanity.

A few school districts have chosen not to send students Gaggle’s war…

Julian Assange's extradition process is 'a charade'

Filmmaker John Pilger attended Julian Assange's last court hearing and observed not only that Assange is visibly suffering from prison mistreatment, but his defense is not being given a fair chance to make its case against his extradition to the US.


Bernie and AOC demonstrate how Baby Boomers could help Millennials escape the neoliberal Matrix

globinfo freexchange
In a recent ad, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explains why she endorsed Bernie Sanders for President. Yet, it would be interesting to examine a specific point she makes at the beginning of this short video. AOC says:
                    The first time I ever heard about Bernie Sanders was when I was a waitress in a greasy spoon diner type of restaurant in downtown Manhattan. And I had been working 12 hour days. I didn't have health insurance. I was being paid less than a living wage. And I didn't think that I deserved any of those things, I thought that that's just how life was.

Her last (highlighted) phrase tells you a lot of how deeply the neoliberal perception has penetrated inside societies and especially inside the minds of new generations. Entire generationshave been trained to believe that that's how things are, in order to accept the neoliberal order and retire from any attempt to overthrow it.
As we wrote in a previous article, during the last f…
