May we declare Peace more than War

May we declare Peace more than War.

This is our SCOD prayer for 2020.

Most times any first world government declares war, it is MIC propaganda based to benefit war profiteers not the people of the country. People don’t learn from history enough to fix the cultural instincts that allow leaders to lead us into wars. It is not brave to constantly threaten others; bad neighbors do that all the time when they do not take time to communicate in good ways. We would have more peace if we were not so quick to be fooled by greedy rich people who profit from war. We do not have more peace or freedom declaring constant war against natives in other countries, as more of our poor are forced to live under martial law to pay their debts. We can barely sustain the peace and freedom we have by selling out ethically and economically to the MIC, because they want our money for health care and infrastructure and arts to pay for their military industrial products. We need to fix our own countries from within, not try to change everyone else’s country for us.

Fuck war hawks 007-style, no more lies for war. Take some time to think about what peace is everyday, and if you can’t then fuck yourself. It is easy to be stupid about things we do not study, in both war and peace.

Trump killing the Iran general was stupid because 1. We need to declare peace and get our military out of the middle east, which that general was helping to do. 2. We need to let Iran continue to fight ISIL, as that general was best known for fighting terrorists. 3. Declaring war based on lies will be added to all the other times our MIC lied us into endless wars. 4. The Iraq leaders we put in power are pissed at us now, and that general never attacked our military or civilians (maybe a mercenary was killed is the most i have heard). 5. This may force Iran to pursue a nuclear program like North Korea to deter our aggression in their area (Wilkerson’s main concern).

Imagine if Russia just bombed a Mexican airport to kill one of our generals who was trying to solve the immigration crisis. How would we take it? Is that behavior acceptable? The “quagmire” of our involvement in endless war in the middle east has a long and twisted history. Our CIA and Pentagon have been working against both Iran and Iraq for years. In modern history our CIA overthrew the Iranian government and supported Iraq in the Iran-Iraq war; then we went to war with Iraq twice. 

“The 1953 Iranian ’28 Mordad’ coup d’état was the overthrow of the democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh in favour of strengthening the monarchical rule of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi; orchestrated by the US (Operation Ajax) and the UK (Operation Boot). After the 1968 Ba’athist coup Iraq fell into the Soviet sphere of influence, so the CIA colluded with Iran to destabilize Iraq by arming Kurdish rebels. Beginning in 1982, the CIA began providing Iraq intelligence during the Iran–Iraq War. Donald Rumsfeld met Saddām in 1983 and 1984, when the UN reported that Iraq had used chemical attacks against Iranian troops. The NY Times reported that “American diplomats pronounce themselves satisfied with Iraq and suggest that normal diplomatic ties have been established in all but name. In 1984, the CIA “established a formal intelligence liaison” with the Mukhabarat, which provided the CIA with information on terrorist groups including the Abu Nidal Organization. However, there was a delay between the CIA’s provision of intelligence to the Mukhabarat and that intelligence being received and analyzed by the Iraqi military, which resulted in much of it not being actionable. Therefore, the CIA eventually began working directly with Iraqi military intelligence, thereby negating its leverage on Iraqi-sponsored terrorism. In 1988, during the waning days of Iraq’s war with Iran, the US learned through satellite imagery that Iran was about to gain a major strategic advantage by exploiting a hole in Iraqi defenses. US intelligence officials conveyed the location of the Iranian troops to Iraq, fully aware that Hussein’s military would attack with chemical weapons, including sarin, a lethal nerve agent. The CIA was also involved in the failed 1996 coup against Saddam Hussein.” – Wikipedia

“It’s a pity both sides can’t lose (commenting on Iran-Iraq war, 1980 – 1988)” ― Henry Kissinger

It is not isolationist to declare peace and work both internally and together, it is humanist.

Response to ‘May we Declare peace more than war” –

“But… in order to “declare peace” don’t you first have to have war? #pedantic (beamer)

In the most common black or white sense, yes. But others can declare war, while others sue for peace. so for example 2 sides declare mutual war, and a third mediator like Picard or Druids can declare Peace, and in fact must to force negotiations. but yes the war declarations still exist previously in the standard definition types.

However the issue of having to declare war seems to take for granted that we are always in peace, like during long cold wars where tensions are called war, one side could declare peace with signs and gifts of good will more often than is currently standard practice perhaps. whether we need to have the other to declare the other, depends on the “state” condition perspective.

To me the role reversal that questions the nature of war and peace, is “peace has broken out”! Qhile ceasefires and treaties have been celebrated as declarations of peace, we rarely hear that peace has broken out, only war breaks out, so peace is more like a purgatory reality (war being hell) instead of a paradise reality.

The monty python use of “peace has broken out” got me questioning the use of the term peace more as a news announcement. Since i began studying Roman history i always wondered about the Pax Romana architecture celebrations after military victories, as really being celebrations of aggressive authority peace keeping by violent wars.

Peace being used as a default ignores the threat and actions of violence by authority who are the ‘peace keepers’ and can initiate violence which can be blamed on the rebels or poor who are homeless and loitering. so to me peace could break out on a calm street in nazi germany for example; where it was business as usual with no immediate violence, but suddenly people were nicer and giving flowers and the police threw away their weapons. this ridiculous example would be ‘peace breaking out on an otherwise mundane busy day’; now whether peace is more calm or active is another question too.

Trumpian Economic Report 2020

Artisan Vs. Commercial Market Selling

By Drogo Empedocles – January 2020

In a Trumpian economy most of us are forced to be beggars even when we offer work in return for money, due to an excess of labor not needed or desired by the rich. Trickle-down Reaganomics has failed us, and is still being pushed on us by Trump and all corporate politicians who sold out. We must resist falling to the attacks causing the destruction of our lives and plan to not just survive but rebuild a better world for our children.

Trump’s tax plan benefits the rich, and diminishes the middle class. The estate tax is gone now so that rich children can inherit all their parent’s wealth freely without earning it, while poor children suffer without deserving it. Personal exemptions have been removed. You can still itemize donations, but the standard deduction bar was raised with an overall .5% tax rate reduction. Those basic changes might negligibly benefit lower incomes, but average to upper middle class households are losing thousands on whole due to other changes in the tax plan.

I lost some financial support despite my working through the holidays on several projects. I won’t be able to do as much free or low-budget work with others, until i can secure more income to cover my own expenses at least. my income is only $700 a year recently, so i feel like i get by with quite a little actually. I only currently use one sound program most weeks, and focus on word (writing) programs, which have glitches between formats, but i am able to publish that way. So for over a year i have only been using two editing programs.

Most people should know that any work has a price; and so my work is for sale, as with any artist; we need means to live so we try to sell prints and originals if we can. If people do not know how to want to share money with others, i am not sure how i can help them except to remind them by bringing it up sometimes. I focus on my work more than sales, because i do it for the work not the sales. If i am asked to be more of a sales person i would not do it. i dont know if stating that i will keep doing my own work the way i want no matter what will reduce interest in investing in me or increase it long term; but i really do not see many options to sustain my career legacy. I may get some temporary side jobs like working for Census, but even if i got a huge increase in income what matters to me is what is created with what i have ultimately.

SCOD social capital has increased overall i believe, which is hard to define since it is not income based. I am close to founding a tristate network for hosting art, music, and writing events; but the design is mostly socially dependent, using properties in WV, MD, and VA. The financial components like ticket sales and payments are totally based on how many people i can get to coordinate together. we currently have several proposals still being formed, for multimedia broadcasting and sharing local events, i can pursue these negotiations without financial losses. ive felt on the verge of something big over the years, but i never know when the tipping point will come because … and this is the hard part to talk about, the complex dynamics of partnerships.

I am proud to ‘beg’ with something of quality to offer in return. When you buy my work, you support many other people; because I collaborate with and buy from other artists and friends. To anyone that thinks I am begging by being honest that I do not earn much, I argue that bragging about how good your work is and saying you have been ‘financially successful’ by taking more than you need is worse than begging because to me that could be considered just as unworthy of support. Getting money from other people is not proof of deserving money, it is simply how people pay their bills. Also I am not just begging because I offer plenty of services and products in various fields. I am simply saying why I could use more income, as opposed to those who do not need more for basic living. I have many jobs, and i do them. I tend to give things away for free and make reasonable deals to work with lower income people.  I apply to better paying jobs, but I do not get them, and when i have had them before i cannot keep them for psychological reasons, one being i cannot stand authoritarian control because i desire to fight back against bosses the same as I would with any willful cruel or ignorant jackass; but when we trade self-respect for money we suppress our resentment which can fester and build to a break-down or illness.

I will not spend time defending myself by arguing against assholes, they are not worth my time. I am too expensive for them because they cannot pay me enough to work for them, and it is easy enough to block them and delete their petty comments. Their attempts to troll me are pathetic when i can shut them down easily. It is amazing that people will ‘friend’ me only to wait for chances to attack, without ever once being kind.  These are the type of people that would tell homeless street musicians to “get a job” too.

If fees are low enough with time i can advertise more without major losses on more websites; in hopes to get at least a few sales. Social reception is usually less than enthusiastic on a whole from audiences on platforms. Amazon is the best example ive had because ive been using it for years, i struggle to get a few sales a year even when i post the links and talk about them etc. I know it is not because my books are not as good as ‘Diary of a Whimpy Kid’ or ‘Captain Underpants’ which are best sellers, it has to do with commercial control of the market at the high levels. I mean sure we could argue whose art or story sucks more, but with enough exposure anti-authoritarian subversive books like ours do well with children and ne’er-do-wellz, which are a large portion of the population.

Ironically most of the people who buy my books are part of the vanishing middle class; not the lowest or the highest earning. There are more lower middle class people so they do buy more books, compared to the few upper middle class people who are interested in my books. I have had people with large incomes talk with me for hours, and i gave them books and they still did not buy any, so spending money has more to do with personalities than wealth; which is why those with less wealth will spend more if they have an income, which creates financial flow and opportunities in an economy.

All of these opinions of observations are reasons why many of us are not satisfied with status-quo commercial politics. We want more leaders like Bernie Sanders and progressives on the right or left who can be held to account by their voters who are also the majority of their campaign financing. We cannot afford allowing corporate sell-outs to further rig our own economy, environment, and country against us.

Middle Class Destroyed by Elites

Wealth Inequality Dividing USA, as Plutocrats Create New Civil War

The Rich are draining the middle class in two ways. While billionaire plutocrats bribe some upper class cronies making them millionaires, most middle class are becoming lower class. Less than 20,000,000 overlords are already ruling over more than 300,000,000 impoverished masses [population estimate 330,000,000 in 2020].

As income inequality grows we are pulled in two directions; but most of us are getting dragged towards the bottom of the economy into low income poverty, as the lower class masses expand more than the upper fractions of 1% of the upper class population. The most economic critical problem for democracy is that the middle class is being pulled apart, and thus only plutocrats will rule the poor masses.

Trying to interpret USA stats today – We have 18,614,000 millionaires plus 609 billionaires expanding their wealth, while apx 312,000,000 people have less savings because they are in debt as most of the middle-class drops into the lower class, as poverty expands overall for most people. While incomes rose some, cost of living and debts rose more with less common investment returns; as high earners are bribed by richer owners to strip wealth from workers and rivals, and middle income earners go deeper into debt trying to maintain and employ both middle and lower class owned independent businesses.

I had to look at the numbers to understand why there are more and more millionaires and billionaires; despite most people getting poorer with expanding the debt, cost of living, mortgage, and homeless crises. From 2018 to 2019 we went from 4,900,000 to 18,614,000 millionaires. American millionaires increased by 13,714,000; which means they had to come from the upper middle class, rather than from billionaires (because they grew also). If millions of upper middle class people became millionaires, then why is most of the middle class shrinking, and the lower class expanding? Why is the middle class disappearing and not expanding in proportion to the upper class increases? One reason billionaires grew by 6.4% to 2,473 in 2015; is that inheritances bring in new blood [Wall Street Journal]. Also billionaires increased because millionaires helped to drain wealth from the middle-class, as many more middle-class people dropped into poverty, a few became rich, and the remaining middle class hangs on desperately while the inequality divide pulls harder.

Billionaires increased their combined global wealth to a record $6 trillion; more than twice the GDP of the UK. There are now 1,542 billionaires across the world, after 145 multi-millionaires saw their wealth tick over into nine-zero fortunes last year. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently said western governments should force the top 1% of earners to pay more tax to try to reduce dangerous levels of inequality [Guardian]. There are now 2,101 billionaires globally [UBS’ 2019 Billionaire Insights report]. That means 589 individuals have become billionaires since 2013, increasing the population over five years [Fox News].

Middle class is defined here for the US as those adults with a net wealth of between $50,000 and $500,000 in mid 2015. Tracking the numbers of the disappearing middle class, shows the polarity of inequality. In February 2009, The Economist asserted that over half the world’s population now belongs to the middle class, as a result of rapid growth in emerging countries. It characterized the middle class as having a reasonable amount of discretionary income, so that they do not live from hand-to-mouth as the poor do; where people start to have a third of their income left for discretionary spending after paying for basic food and shelter. This allows people to buy consumer goods, improve their health care, and provide for their children’s education.

Most of the emerging middle class consists of people who are middle class by the standards of the developing world but not the developed one, since their money incomes do not match developed country levels, but the percentage of it which is discretionary does. By this definition, the number of middle-class people in Asia exceeded that in the West sometime around 2007 or 2008. The American middle class is estimated by some researchers to comprise approximately 45% of the population. The Economist’s article would put the size of the American middle class below the world average. This difference is due to the extreme difference in definitions.

In 2015 there were 564,708 homeless people in the USA. These figures are likely underestimates as surveillance for the homeless population is challenging. Over 20,000,000 US adult citizens earn less than $5,000 a year. [2016 Personal Income stats] There was a $2,000 decline in nominal income overall for most adults from 2000-2016; it is suspected that the 2020 Census will show that reduction trend to have continued. Oddly the poverty and income charts mimic each-other; why their curves are similar is unclear. 

At the Strategic Investment Conference 2018, Karen Harris from Bain & Company gave a thought-provoking keynote titled, “Labor 2030: The Collision of Demographics, Automation, and Inequality.” Karen Harris sees a big economic shift that began in the 1980s. Driven by demographics and automation, the world is gradually moving from a supply-constrained to a demand-constrained economy. Harris said the combination of a demographically shrinking workforce and increasingly cost-effective automation will aggravate inequality, curb demand, and put a cap on economic growth.

High-wage workers will reap most of the gains and low-wage workers will bear most of the cost, at least in the short run. Someone has to buy the goods robots produce. As the middle and lower classes suffer, spending will decline. The result will be “demand-constrained growth.” It will get much worse and not just in the U.S. Many won’t initially notice because rising productivity will mask some of the job losses. But eventually, job losses will overwhelm productivity. Harris called this the “Wile E. Coyote” moment. It’s hard to pinpoint, but probably coming in the next decade.

The growth of spending by Baby Boomers will begin to decline in the 2020s. Now add in the growing inequality with up to 25% of the workforce displaced by automation, and the middle-class markets seem to disappear. Investors and businesses should be asking, “Who will be my customers a decade from now?” [Patrick Watson, Forbes 2018]

[GREG DAUGHERTY, Investopedia 2019]

The American middle class, once the envy of the world (and occasional object of its derision) is shrinking, according to a new report from the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. The report, which looked at the U.S. and 11 Western European countries, found that in the nearly 20 years from 1991 to 2010, the portion of American adults living in middle-class households fell from 62% to 59%. The Pew report defined middle-class households as those with incomes of anywhere between two-thirds and twice that of their country’s median disposable household income. In the case of the U.S., that meant a range of roughly $35,000 to $106,000 a year for a household of three. 

In the USA: 26% are lower income, 59% are middle income, and 15% are upper income. 

In Denmark: 14% are lower income, 80% are middle income, and 7% are upper income.

The middle class in the U.S., as defined by median household income, is shrinking, with some Americans moving up and most others down. Compared with 11 Western European nations, the U.S. has the smallest percentage of population considered middle income and the largest percentages in both the lower and upper income categories. (See also – ‘Why the American Middle Class Is Shrinking’)

Economists have debated the reasons why the American middle class is shrinking for years now, and a new study highlights one key reason: The jobs that pay enough to support a middle-class lifestyle are disappearing. Although the total number of American jobs is projected to increase by around 7.2 million over the next five years, this growth largely leaves behind the middle of the income spectrum. More than 60 percent of 173 occupations projected to decline are middle-class jobs [Career-Builder’s Economic Modeling Specialists International]. Between now and 2021, the number of low-wage jobs will increase by 5 percent, but middle-income jobs (those that pay between roughly $14 and $21 an hour) will only grow by 3 percent. 

“Jobs that have a lot of routine aspects are easy to automate and those are going away,” said Glassdoor.com chief economist Andrew Chamberlain. “Those jobs are just disappearing, and that’s the hollowing-out we’re seeing,” he said. For middle-income workers, a combination of automation and wage erosion (from weak worker unions) erodes the economic stability of the middle class. “Middle-wage workers will become increasingly susceptible to unemployment or will have to move into lower-paying roles that may not support them and their families,” CareerBuilder CEO Matt Ferguson warned in a statement. This isn’t just bad news for middle-class families, he said; it also can weaken consumer spending, the housing market and Americans’ ability to invest in the stock market and save for retirement.

Income inequality in the United States is the extent to which income is distributed in an uneven manner among the American population. It has fluctuated considerably since measurements began around 1915, moving in an arc between peaks in the 1920s and 2000s, with a 30-year period of relatively lower inequality between 1950–1980. A 2011 study found that US citizens across the political spectrum dramatically underestimate the current US wealth inequality and would prefer a far more egalitarian distribution of wealth (Ariely – ‘Perspectives on Psychological Science’). The top 1% controlled 38.6% of the country’s wealth in 2016. In September 2019, the Census Bureau reported that income inequality in the United States had reached its highest level in 50 years. [Wikipedia]

If there must be a new Civil War, it should not be poor against poor; we have done that. Perhaps we need a real Class War, to stop World War 3 from happening. We are aware that terrible leaders caused the last ones, so having actual democratic power is one way to stop pollution and war. Plutocrats have been using corporate politics and media to smear and ignore all opposition to them; they will create distractions like war rather than risk cutting any profits.

Yes Other Animals Wage War

Posted in biology, Ethics & Morals, History, Military, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 2, 2019 by Drogo

Yes some other animals besides humans go to war. The word ‘war’ is vague enough to cover unintelligent conflicts between groups of any species. War does not require much planning besides basic organization and group collusion to wage a primitive series of battles comprising a war. In fact even many insects and other hive-minded beings go to war. War seems to be very instinctual for several species, not just our own.

 

An article by National Geographic disagrees, but their semantic arguments regarding ‘war’ are weak. What do you call it when ants storm other insect colonies in huge numbers simultaneously and not only kill using tactics, but also take resources and slaves to expand their own colonies? War is basically group hunting, except the ‘prey’ are groups of enemies who can engage in war or ‘group hunting’ also. 

 

Public consensus without studying the scientific evidence tends to be that only humans wage wars; because we have advanced brains, intentions, strategies, and technology; as with the similar claim regarding ‘art’. Clearly there are some other animals who deliberately do art, for the same basic motivations we make anything – to get mates or make nice shelters. The same is true for war. Clearly there are some other animals besides us, who deliberately decide to follow a leader into a battle, which leads to more conflicts, ultimately becoming what we call a war. As we have seen with human politics, not much is needed when the powerful decide to mobilize unquestioning underlings with threats; in fact sometimes not even legal authorization, just collusion in the form of funding support.

 

So yes long after homo-sapiens warred and bred with neanderthals we have retained a natural instinct for war; however it is also part of evolution for us to use our complex enlightened brains regarding violence in civilization. Intelligence can be used wisely and ethically if we can find more ways to influence others using rewards rather than threats.

[see Aldous Huxley vs George Orwell]

 

Corporate Neo-Fascist Politics

Posted in Military, news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2019 by Drogo

Neo-liberals and Neo-conservatives leaders are basically Neo-fascists by default; using corporations to control government and deny civil rights and promote war. Voters have been tricked to vote for the 2-party neo-fascist system, just as they were in Germany before WW2, so shaming Trump or Hillary voters is not useful in the reconditioning process. Post WW2 Germany is an example of how voter shaming can back-fire. The fall of the Berlin Wall was popular because of how punishing people for bad leaders can be, without giving them reasons to change ideology.

Fascism does not believe in real democracy, and in manifestos it has claimed this is because democracy never works. Neo-fascism differs from conventional Fascism because it hides behind political-correctness (polite manners), and avoids using bold terms like racism or ‘Nazi’. Neo-fascists instead prefer slogans like ‘New World Order’, ‘Mission Accomplished’, and ‘Yes We Can!’. Neo-fascists believe nothing should stand in the way of Capitalist business, not even problems of peace or pollution.

Currently peace and environmental activists are being attacked by the Hillary DNC, who accuses them of being treasonous foreign agents of Russia. The New Red Scare is being used by Neo-liberals to attack both Trump (who functions as a Neo-conservative, despite his fake populist platitudes) and far-left leaders. This tactic will totally break the voter base for the DNC, by severing the far-left completely from ever voting for their candidates again; because they would rather have Trump win again (because he is pro-business), if they cannot get their candidates to win (Hillary & Biden recently).

The scary part of all this is that their Neo-fascist propaganda has worked, for two reasons. One reason is because most voters do not have time to actually study political claims. The other reason is that DNC party-line voters believe that the lesser of two evils is better, and that Hillary would not have done as many bad things as Trump is doing. There is much truth to that claim that Trump is a piece of shit, and should never have been made president. The bizarre fact that Trump was made president by the electoral college (Hillary won the popular vote), has made some of us wonder what is really going on. The Neo-liberal DNC wants us to believe we should blame Jill Stein, and anyone that would want to run as a third-party candidate (like Nader or Perot were blamed before). So their propaganda against peace and environmental activist leaders has landed, because it is assumed that of the choice between Trump and Hillary, one of them is better. Neo-fascists do not want us thinking that both elite candidates of the 2-party system are committing crimes against humanity and our US Constitution, because then their gig is up. They would rather one of the two win, or none at all.

Their ‘One Thousand Points of Light’ (Bush Sr.) CIA strategy is having a constant war of terror, to never allow real democracy of direct vote to have any power. They will not even allow us to have ranked-choice voting in our Republic. The New Red Scare continues, which ironically fuels our state communist MIC (Military Industrial Complex) with our taxes.

If Biden (or another DNC pick) wins, the Hillary DNC will increase attacks on us using the New Red Scare, which could lead to more Congressional Hearings and prison for Sanders, Tulsi, and Stein voters (who are all branded as either Socialist or Russian by the Neo-fascists). Nationalist corporate fascists are scared that voters might want real democracy. Ecological development and peaceful negotiations are more patriotic than selling out to big business to pollute and bomb the planet; do not let them fool us again! Bernie Sanders may come the closest to uniting the entire Left with the Centrist WORKING CLASS Right (blue collar, not white collar), on issues like Health Care and Worker Rights (Jobs).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Area 51 – US Secret X-Base

Posted in Commercial Corporations, History, Military, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on October 23, 2019 by Drogo

Area 51 is part of the Nevada Test Site area, run by Top-Secret Military and Industrial Corporations. The facilities use scientists and engineers to work on weapons and ‘ufo’ vehicles. ‘U.F.O.’ simply means ‘unidentified flying object’. Some speculate that aliens are responsible for many ufos; but even if only humans are operating ufos (even just the ones that have been documented by the military and scientific civilians), Area 51 and related operations would still be worth studying.

The New Red Scare – DNC 2019

Posted in Commercial Corporations, Legal / Laws, news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2019 by Drogo

The new Red Scare in America is not being pushed by the Republicans who did so last time (headed by McCarthy). The new foreign agent propaganda was spread by Hillary’s DNC. The corporate lies are aimed at environmentalists and peace-activists that would never vote for corporate sell-outs, and would rather vote Green Party, Independent, or stay home in protest. Jill Stein visited Russia along with many other politicians, because politicians often travel to other countries and try to network with allies and even meet with enemies; but the DNC started a rumor that somehow Stein had more Russian power than the Clintons who did millions of dollars worth of deals with Russians. The DNC propaganda story is that somehow through vague propaganda, without actually hacking votes, Russia won the election for Trump and also controls the Green Party. Hillary Clinton actually tried again to push this narrative herself on CNN, by smearing Tulsi Gabbard (veteran active duty military officer and Congressional Representative for Hawaii) and Jill Stein as ‘Russian assets’ (or agents). There is less evidence to even make those claims, than there would be evidence to charge Clinton with foreign influence. Part of the reason to accuse others, can be to distract attention from the truth about Clinton and DNC crimes. Russia is not even claiming to be Communist anymore (as if it ever was, and not totalitarian state capitalism), it is Capitalist like us, and does business with rich plutocrats like the Clintons and Trumps all the time.

Since Hillary’s DNC basically declared propaganda war on progressives, it is only fair that we defend ourselves and our “purity tests” aka ethics. Does anyone out there have a memory of at least one person reading one of Hillary Clinton’s emails (it may have been with other DNC emails like Podesta’s) that said she wanted to push the “Russia story” long before her DNC actually did? It may have said something like “Perhaps we should use the ‘Russia narrative’ against them”, suggesting that they push propaganda about Russia before they started smearing Jill Stein, and before Russia-Gate. I have had one other person say they remember hearing that too, but have not heard reference about since after the new Red Scare by the DNC began. If you know anything about her early reference to their propaganda plan, please comment below.

To be clear about far-left progressive politics, we are clearly not funded by foreign governments more than Corporate Centrists are (who do international business deals constantly); and without our voices and boycotts of the 2-party system there would be no environmental or peace activist action in politics. Without us the USA would become more militant and the overton window would shift further far-right into neo-nazi authoritarianism (totalitarian with a much bigger budget than Russia combined with the rest of the world). The CIA and all law enforcement in the USA tends to allow far-right terrorism historically, from nazis before and after WW2 to the KKK and mass shooters; policy makers justify this because white power nationalism fights against marxism and worker unions. I am personally unaware of any foreign money influencing us, but all evidence points in the other direction that those with more money and power are corrupted and supporting terrorism to fund totalitarianism (perpetual MIC war).

Jill Stein has defended herself against these attacks by submitting evidence to Congress. Stein even saved her receipts and submitted them to the feds, so her trip was basically like how Dad and I visited Russia, as a self-funded trip to represent and learn; as many travelers do. After years of studying Green Party politics there is no evidence that our leaders on the far-left are more influenced by foreigners than Corporate politicians are, in fact the evidence shows the opposite. The Clintons and Trumps have met with Putin and other dictators like Trump far more due to their power and influence on the world stage, and corporate centrists are paid off by international business money regularly.

‘The Young Turks’ (TYT) (alternative left-wing media company) has been promoting their ‘Wolf Pack’ group to get money out of politics in the DNC, because lobbyists have allowed politicians to be more of an actual terror threat to citizens, both foreign and domestic. The TYT ‘Justice Democrats’ group has supported progressive grass-roots politicians like Bernie Sanders (Democratic-Socialist), AOC, and many others. Overall, 40 percent of voters are Democrats, 29 percent are Republicans, and 28 percent are independents, according to a report from the ‘University of Virginia’s Center for Politics’ (2018). It would not be so hard for a Democrat to win if the DNC didn’t betray their voter base, because voters would turn out in over-whelming numbers and win most races. Why? Because there are millions more registered Democrats, than Republicans. A popular candidate attracts independents too. It is the job of the politician to win US over by representing us.

The New Red Scare is a weak ploy, considering actual budgets and motives.

For every one Russian spy there are 100 US agents ready to interrogate, torture, and tell you who you are allowed to vote for in the 2-party Corporate System.

Corporate politicians meet with Putin all the time btw.

How many times has Hillary met with Putin? Is Putin a Hillary puppet??
