The guy is glorying in this concocted division in the US left.
Just. Exactly. Now.
He doesn’t give a rats ass what some supporter of Bernie or Elizabeth thinks. My bet is that if he read JPR today he’d be smirking with total whipped cream dripping glee.
I’ve read that Putin has been quite popular in Russia, winning fair elections. I don’t think Russia, Venezuela, Iran, all these countries on the US enemies list are necessarily dictatorships just because the US and the US MSM labels them as such. Same for “terrorist” and the other words used to target US enemies. Those words are only used to ju…[Read more]
algernon replied to the topic Jimmy Dore: Bernie/Warren Smackdown Start To Finish in the forum General Discussion 1 year ago
This entire showbiz scenario was invented and orchestrated by CNN, timed precisely for this CNN debate. CNN going after audience share, going after advertising dollars. Nothing more nefarious than that.
Republicans, Faux News, Trump, McCarthy, Carlson, the whole gang is ecstatic and playing it for all it’s worth. It’s their bread and bu…[Read more]

I just totally dislike it how you turn every positive, like a note that there’s vibrant enthusiasm for Sanders, into a platform to expound on how you detest Warren, or any Dem, really. How you use Sanders as a foil to send a counter-message, something that destroys, not something that builds.
Tucker Carlson. You gotta hand it to the man, he walks around with santorum leaking from his backside, imbibing a cesspool from his frontside, yet he makes 10’s of $millions$ putting it all out for clicks.
I don’t think “The West” exists except as a term designed for use in political propaganda, and as such a term it’s an en passant reference to “The Western Empire”. Empires and sub-empires are military-economic bubbles, and the history of success in those enterprises hinges on having better technological and organizational capacities than…[Read more]
That was a good discussion. Saajar Enjeti did a neat job of making his point.
I couldn’t understand a word of it.
The Biden campaign video sucked. That’s a given. But all that was then said from that jumping off point was pop psych passing between people paid to compete at being the most vacuous.
And oh, (I rest my head on my folded hands for awhile to breathe it away,) oh yes, of course, there seems to be an huu-u-ge r…[Read more]

Since the USA elected Trump to lead supposedly the world’s most advanced and powerful economy, I think it’s up the USA to fix that before any US American has the credentials to mouth anything at all about the global problem of climate warming.
So the city of Bessimer stinks, according as their elected councilors, requiring the purchase of a $3,400 machine to actually discover the stink, coupled with the cost of on the job training and deploying.
I have a feeling that the people in Bessimer that might fall foul of the zeal evidenced by their elected officials might also have other…[Read more]

None of this will have an impact on the Dem primaries. These are completely separate issues. None of this will have an impact on support for any of the candidates. The birther President will say different. But what else is new?

This is the POTUS, so what can the rest of the world expect? A country headed by a neo-nazi.
algernon replied to the topic Trump says no U.S. troops hurt in Iran strikes, Tehran 'standing down' in the forum Latest Breaking News 1 year ago
Iran is being hit with the most devastating economic sanctions ever used, in an overt attempt to cripple the country and bring it down.
Then the USA perpetrates this gross war crime, and smirks.
The President of the USA is known worldwide for his disdain for truth, and he’s built an army that disdains truth, who have lost all idea of how to…[Read more]
algernon replied to the topic What can peace activists do to help prevent a war with Iran? in the forum Foreign Affairs 1 year ago
The USA has been proven to be outside the law for two decades now, and no US politician is willing to admit it.
Peace rallies opposed to the US 2003 war of choice against Iraq were second to none in world history, and they had no effect whatsover. Not in the USA, not in the UK. No refutation from reason was ever listened to, from e…[Read more]

It’s particularly interesting that this coup, and the wannabe coup in Venezuela, are opposed to indigenous culture.
It’s kinda sickening, how the USA pushes theses coups. All I can say is that the USA is beyond corrupt.
SV is centrist central. So who gives a ferk?
The owner of that site is so far into the pocket of dedicated “centrist candidates” as to be anathema to all. In the sense of being being bought and paid for.
According to some reading from Alexa, that site and the co-hosted ‘discussionist’ generate a huge amount of traffic, dwarfing anything that a…[Read more]
I kinda downvote that fugger.
When I listen to TYT it’s to hear the facts, and the facts that TYT’s speak about stand the test of time and overall I’d rate my time listening to TYT as very positive.
I didn’t actually listen to the video but I did immediately go to the New York Mag article mentioned, and read it with interest. This led to some views of AOC on youtube.
AOC is brilliant. A shining light that gives me some hope for US politics, for US culture.
Other than that I can barely understand US politics even tho’ as a Canadian I’m f…[Read more]
