In Good Company Trying To Move On….
Good health pertains to many topics. One could be the ability of a Free Press to report political-candidate platforms without insinuating deeply personal emotional opinions about those candidates. We have been entertained by a state-run/corporate-owned (government is being run like a business) mainstream media masquerading as a Free Press.
Healthy–environment advocates are also negatively portrayed in state-run/corporate-owned mainstream media. In fact, legislation is passed to censor citizens who defend environmental, civil, and human rights — —
https://www.nationofchange.org/2019/08/23/media-bias-and-movement-building-bernie-sanders-revolutionary-2020-campaign/–“Bernie Sanders makes my skin crawl. And I can’t even identify for you what exactly it is.” Former assistant U.S. attorney Mimi Rocah on MSNBC in July
While the 2020 Democratic primaries have showcased a number of progressive candidates (alongside quite a few centrists pretending to be progressive), the coverage being given in the U.S. mainstream media to one, in particular, has been biased in ways that it hasn’t been for most of the others. This has once again been the lot of the Bernie Sanders campaign, which, besides being unconventional in terms of the way it mobilizes voters, receives far more negative (and non) coverage than those of his opponents, with the possible exception of Tulsi Gabbard. — end of nationofchange info —

8:50AM — -caller — -(paraphrase) — -Many Africans enslaved and sold other Africans in 1619.
Guest — -(paraphrase) — -”white people are recognized as having distinct communities. Many white communities enslaved other white communities”.
This seems to be a reply that both confirms and denies about the topic of slavery, as a commemoration of the first slaves brought to the shores of North America (not exactly a fact, either) that is in fact revealing of capitalistic hierarchical Establishment that is probably based on race. That all races were so victimized is a fact.
This ignorance on the topic of slavery is indicative of an educational system that was intended to produce in the USA, informed citizens capable of self-governance in accordance with a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic; but instead the educational system will educate students into consumerism and compliance to capitalistic hierarchical Establishment. If history was taught, we would be more informed about many things, including, for example, Russia. How does this pertain to slavery? Consider — –
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Crimea—Crimean Tatars introduced raids into Ukrainian lands, in which they captured slaves for on-sale.:78 For example, from 1450 to 1586, eighty-six Tatar raids were recorded, and from 1600 to 1647, seventy.:106 In the 1570s close to 20,000 slaves a year went on sale in Kaffa.

If one may put forth a personal opinion, the Russian people were enslaved by Turks, and after Crimea was invaded by Russia to mitigate the Khan raids into Ukraine and Russia, the majority of Russian people were peasants and exploited by capitalistic hierarchical masters symbolized in the Tsar. Another mitigation of enslavement by the Russian public occurred in 1917 with the Russian Revolution. Eastern Europeans, drawing from personal observation, can be recalcitrant.
Consider that which could be taught in American history education, but isn’t — –https://www.ducksters.com/history/world_war_i/russian_revolution.php
Communism eventually took control of the governance after the Russian Revolution, in a manner similar to the way capitalism has taken control of the government in the US in 2019. One makes this connection because one believes communism and capitalism are opposite sides of the same coin.
C-Span — — 9:15AM — -Guest — — (paraphrase) — -Industry perpetuated slavery in America in the crops tobacco and rice.
The point one ultimately wishes to make, is that the use of racism and division is the bate-and-switch used by hierarchy, essentially capitalistic, to divide and conquer the class and majority of the public around the globe, who have always been exploited in order to transfer wealth to the top of the Pyramid Scheme. If We The People can ever crawl beyond the divisions of otherness sufficiently to recognize the forest for the trees, we will see the predatory class working their exploitation, same as always.
As we memorialize the atrocities of the past, let’s also deal with the atrocities of here and now — — PETITION — —https://act.credoaction.com/sign/blackrock-amazon?t=5&akid=33754%2E2842878%2Ev2xFXZ——The Earth’s lungs are on fire.
The record-setting destructive fires spreading quickly across Amazon rainforests are up 80% over last year and nearly all are human-caused, likely set by ranchers, loggers and fossil fuel interests emboldened by Brazil’s extreme right-wing president Jair Bolsonaro, who has declared that the Amazon is open for business.1,2
BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, is cashing in on Amazon destruction by investing millions in the oil, mining and agribusiness industries in Brazil that are destroying rainforests and indigenous homes and worsening the climate crisis.
Companies that are devastating the Amazon — and our planet — wouldn’t be able to continue operations without the backing of BlackRock and other massive investment firms. We must demand that BlackRock divest completely from these operations immediately. — -end of CREDO info — –

PLEASE BECOME A SIGNATORY TO A NEW: Coalition Letter Which Requests That Governor Cuomo Take Immediate Action to Enact a Comprehensive New York State Statutory Prohibition of All Forms of High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing Using Water, Gelled Propane or Any Other Fluids
TAKE ACTION TODAY TO STOP HIGHLY FLAMMABLE AND POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE GELLED PROPANE FRACKING PROPOSED IN BARTON, NY. ONLY HYDROFRACKING HAS BEEN PROHIBITED IN NYS.
Toxics Targeting recently hit the trifecta with three regional front-page articles on this issue. Thank you Jeff Platsky: And you thought fracking was banned? This group wants to beat the ban
If approved, Gelled Propane could open up more than 130,000 acres in Tioga County to “waterless” shale fracking. It is imperative that we kill this project because it has never been assessed for its public health or environmental impacts and would end New York’s High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing Prohibition.

One has heard in NYS, the under informed and ignorant individuals drone on about how we “must run government like a business”, in compliance with their capitalist masters, never hearing themselves describing organized crime in that statement.
These are reasons many of the public support the politically revolutionary platform of Bernie Sanders, who is attempting a return to a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic, before a revolution of arms becomes necessary — —https://www.desmogblog.com/2019/08/22/bernie-sanders-green-new-deal-plan-climate?utm_source=desmog%20%20weekly%20newsletter
Calling the global climate crisis both the greatest threat facing the United States and the greatest opportunity for transformative change, Sen. Bernie Sanders on Thursday unveiled a comprehensive Green New Deal proposal that would transition the U.S. economy to 100 percent renewable energy and create 20 million well-paying union jobs over a decade.
“This is a pivotal moment in the history of America — and really, in the history of humanity,” Sanders, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said in a statement.
“When we are in the White House,” said the Vermont senator, “we will launch the decade of the Green New Deal, a 10-year mobilization to avert climate catastrophe during which climate change, justice, and equity will be factored into virtually every area of policy, from immigration to trade to foreign policy and beyond.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kkpDpL84-8 — It’s One Of Those Things You Gotta Feel To Be True…..
https://countercurrents.org/2019/08/resist-locally-renew-globally—–Demagogues from Donald Trump to Marie Le Pen to Jair Bolsonaro have capitalized on this longing and turned it towards nationalistic and bigoted ends.
We need to make a very clear distinction between localism and nationalism.
We cannot eliminate the natural human desire for rootedness. Instead, we need to make a very clear distinction between localism and nationalism.
For most of our time on this planet, we evolved in intergenerational communities, closely bonded to the land, to the plants, to the animals around us. Instead of being dependent on distant, anonymous institutions and businesses, we depended on one another in human-scale structures and institutions. Localism taps into this deep need for community and a sense of place.
Nationalism, on the other hand, destroyed our sense of interdependence with human-scale community and the living environment. Boundaries that ignored natural bioregional and cultural connections were forged by elites to create new artificial identities that promoted centralized power and, in many cases, the war machine. — — — — end of countercurrents info — —
If the Capitalist Party D&R is again successful in disenfranchising voters and herding the electorate down the cattle pen of voting for capitalistic hierarchical Establishment candidates, once again, many people will vote their conscience and honor their autonomy by making personal Presidential candidate choices. Mine will be Howie Hawkins of the Green Party — — https://www.gp.org/howie_hawkins
Howie is a socialist who believes self-organization, independent political action, and international solidarity by the working class and oppressed people for full political and economic democracy is the way to build a society of freedom, equality, solidarity, peace, and ecological sustainability. — end of GP info about Howie Hawkins — –
Some voters in the US were disenfranchised due to Capitalist Party D&R election rigging that is controlled by political Parties. The Capitalist Party R&D, have as their objective, putting in place rules that ensure the candidate choice of a particular Establishment Party is put into office, even against the wishes of the voters.
Please remember political Parties have no standing under the US Constitution, but voters do have standing under the US Constitution. Due to disenfranchisement of 3rd-Party candidates, Bernie Sanders who is an Independent, chooses to run as a Democrat for President. If a voter is a member of a 3rd-Party, and wishes to vote for 3rd-Party politician Bernie Sanders, in the Democratic Primary, that voter may be disenfranchised of his/her Constitutional right of a free and fair election, as happened to a large number of voters in NYS in 2016.
One suspects these disenfranchised voters who may have felt defrauded of their right to vote in the 2016 Democratic Primary, voted for Trump in the 2016 general election. One believes this will happen again, because needless to say, the Capitalist Party R&D prefer chaos in the election system, which is a control mechanism for political Parties with no standing under the US Constitution, while the voters do have standing under the US Constitution. This is an interesting red-herring to wield a control that is not Constitutional.
*****Each state is different as to their voter registration guidelines. Anyone wishing to vote for Bernie Sanders for President in the Democratic Primary, should check to be sure they will not be disenfranchised at the polls, once again in 2020, as in 2016. A voter can easily switch between political Parties, rather than functioning as a captive Party loyalist, to a political Party that is not loyal to the voter. *****
Or one can be registered to vote, without being affiliated to a particular political Party. Please remember, the US Constitution supports free and fair elections for voters, but is blissfully unconcerned about political Parties. That some Americans believe “we are a 2-Party system”, is nothing but propaganda.
*****Be sure to check with your state to register to vote in the Primary according to your wish and by exercising your US Constitutional right to vote.*****
*****One may also advocate for ranked-choice voting, that will expand choices for voters, and provide a greater possibility of free and fair elections.*****
