      2. Those people who say we need to reform the Democratic Party need to see this.

      Maybe they will wake up to the reality that the Democratic Party is past saving.

          10. What a great show… On Contact

          I frankly see a LOT of great shows on RT, in spite of what’s done in the U.S. to fight its’ existence.

            12. I do too…truly wonderful and full of analysis and information.

            Obviously something we can’t have here in the US, right?!

      9. Man! I don't know how I missed this

      One thing about the mention notifications that I hate. You click on one and they are all marked “read.” Sorry about that!

      I’m bookmarking and will watch in just a bit

      Thank you so much! ❤

      11. This was GREAT

      It will take some very unconventional alleys… Isn’t this what I’ve been hearing for about a year now. I can tell you that die hard Democrats don’t get this message.

      Organized resistance will NEVER come out of the Democratic party… fucking A.

      18. Here's a link to Hedges' "On Contact" the whole series

      Each one is worth watching. They are all on youtube under his channel. Better quality than Moxie News.

        20. Thanks Rocco…

        I have subscribed to Hedges YouTube on Contact but for some reason that’s the one that showed up. Hmm, I’m not subscribed to Moxinews.

          22. No problem

          I also subscribe to Hedges’ Channel. It was only a matter of finding the right episode and I did not appreciate the video quality on the Moxie News site.

      23. And our JPR site is on Chris Hedges' radar too…

      Note that on this show the list of “Fake News” site that Hedges notes are falsely called such by the REAL *Fake News* corporate news propaganda sites, has JPR is on this scrolling list here..

      Vote AGAINST the race to the bottom by both corporate parties who seek to screw workers over globally!
