The most regrettable though predictable aspect of the recent uprising is that there has, for obvious reasons, been zero focus on the victims of state repression by the US and its allies in other countries. Most Americans, particularly the lumpenproletariat vanguard class, don’t know or don’t care about any of this, and the capitalist class/new clerisy elements that are trying to co-opt the insurrection wish to obscure it.
What she says around 16:30 is the best comment.
LOL. The sovereign citizens of the Left.
So much for the “we need to vote to keep fascists off the Supreme Court” theory.
He would be if he was a civilian.

This isn’t a bad discussion of the financial system but the solutions are predictably milquetoast. Anti-banksters need to rediscover Proudhon.

The Chinese have their problems but they’re being used by the US regime to deflect Americans’ attention from the fact that they’re being ruled by incompetent morons.

WHO announces asymptomatic people who have COVID-19 are at very low risk of spreading the disease.
This is an interesting discussion. They both have unusual perspectives given their unusual backgrounds.

It’s rather ironic that the supposed social democratic utopia of Sweden has adopted the anti-lockdowners’ preferred laissez-faire approach to COVID-19.
Joshua and Ryan discuss local, national, and international politics; outrage and divisiveness in the current political climate; and the quagmire of disarray and turmoil created by tribalism and partisan politics with journalist and podcaster Kim Iversen.

This is 3 months old but it’s totally on point. I would generally prefer that voter turnout in US elections eventually dwindles to, say, the 30 percent range with the ruling class parties getting 20 percent of the vote and the fringe/freakazoid parties getting maybe 10 percent, with everyone else wisely staying home on Election Day.
This is quite interesting. Disaffected Sandernistas are seeking to build a populist-left mass people’s party that crosses over to the populist-right and disaffected Trump voters, and seeks to become a major party by 2024. Kim correctly points out that substantial sectors of the Left will be adamantly opposed to such an effort (“no platform” and all that). They point out that for this to work they need to focus on populist economic concerns and a non-interventionist foreign policy and leave the moral, cultural, identity, etc issues to the side.
Rising is by far the best the “mainstream media” has to offer, which is why I post so much of their material here, but this guy’s critique of Rising, echoing Kim Iversen, for not being nearly radical enough is spot on. A real test of a media outlet’s actual oppositional credentials is the degree to which they are willing to criticize Israel. Notice that Tucker Carlson NEVER criticizes Israel. To my knowledge, Rising has never done a single segment that was critical of Israel.
