    war of terror

    It's 20 minutes long with Jimmy Dore jumping all over the place but you will learn something if you listen to what is being said.

    Is it me or Jimmy Dore that flopped. I realize that posting a 20 minute video is a bad idea but Dore touched on 3 important topics in that time.

    The WAPO contract with the CIA along with lobbyist writing editorials for starters, as Dore explains the WAPO is attempting to set policy but most important it is the failed policies of covert proxy wars from the Reagan administration.

    Why is none of this on the evening news?
    Why do I have to be informed by a comedian on Youtube?

    Dore points out that anyone who digs into the facts gets branded a conspiracy theorist. Real journalist are willing to talk about the almost 1 million Iraqis who were murdered in our war of terror. The victims of terrorism are Muslims. It's Orwellian.

    50 Senators Want to Make It a Crime to Boycott Israel
    The proposed Israel Anti-Boycott Act would make it a felony for Americans to support BDS, with a penalty of up to $1 million and 20 years in prison.

    Wow. Is there any doubt that the senate will do anything for their puppetmasters?
    Thanks from Friday13

    Contemporary Journalism & Its Role in Society
    We are now able to fact check the writer through our own research, show opposing view points, and even research how credible the journalist may be. Because of this, contemporary journalists have to be sure that all facts are presented in their writing. They also have to anticipate that someone may question their credentials or research and be prepared to defend both.

    Quite a few of us here do our own research and have learned that alternative news such as comedian satire is a good place to get the facts. SNL Weekend Update, Jon Stewart, Real Time With Bill Maher, but I find that Youtube will talk about topics that result in TV journalists losing their job. Phil Donahue is not a comedian but he may have had the highest rating show when he was fired from MSNBC for opposing the war in Iraq.

    Will Trump use executive orders to break up the monopolies?

    Everyone here has heard of Thomas Frank from his book What's the Matter with Kansas? a vivid portrait of an upside-down world where blue-collar patriots recite the Pledge while they strangle their life chances; where small farmers cast their votes for a Wall Street order that will eventually push them off their land; and where a group of frat boys, lawyers, and CEOs has managed to convince the country that it speaks on behalf of the People
    ~Amazon

    This is the upside-world that many of us have been posting about for the past 20 years. Clinton gave us welfare reform and signed the repeal of the Glass–Steagall Act into law. It took me a few years to accept the fact that democrats do not represent the working and middle class. Thomas Frank is back in the news with his new book Listen Liberal. Frank wants to know why Obama did little to nothing to break up the too big to fail monopolies.

    It's clear to me that the world is upside-down. I can't force you to take a good look and find common ground with me on a few solutions.

    This thread is over a week old.

    You bumped it for a week.

    I gave you a pity-bump.

    Let it die with dignity...if that's possible.
