CITIZEN DISCERNMENT REQUIRED IN GOVERNANCE
The American people are proving to be much better than their purported leaders—–https://www.blackagendareport.com/lawless-low-barrs-depths-depravity–Lawless low Barr’s depths of depravity–end of bar info–
Those who have watched politics for oh, let’s say 50 years, don’t see the chaos of 2020 to be much different from a large portion of the mid 1900’s———-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6kDF-9UOiw—Krystal and Saagar: Maddow, Lincoln Proj CAUGHT Being ‘Useful Idiots’ For Iranian Propaganda Scheme——-end of KrystalandSaagar info–The work of citizens in a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic is to monitor those in public office, not the other way around.
https://www.factinate.com/people/32-top-secret-facts-j-edgar-hoover/——————–Reality suggests a look behind the curtain, then as now.
Principles of a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic suggest the integrity of cross-protection among fellow citizens of a nation—“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America
—–end of Preamble to the US Constitution—–
During our current national disturbance of a Covid-19 pandemic, one imagines the wearing of masks that do more to protect others than oneself is an apt analogy. What is the mindset that demands everyone prioritize their own interests over that of others, when joint-protection is the soundest? This seems to be the principle suggested in the Preamble. So why have we shot our metaphorical self in the foot with capitalism and hierarchy, that in a pandemic, is deleterious?
Religious pretension in politics in the USA may wish to answer to the diversion in view between self-promoted religious political leaders and the Pope—–https://www.cbsnews.com/news/pope-francis-endorses-same-sex-civil-unions/—-
“Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God,” Francis said in one of his sit-down interviews for the film. “You can’t kick someone out of a family, nor make their life miserable for this. What we have to have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered.”——end of cbsnews info–
This raises the anomaly of using religion as an excuse to persecute others. More concerning is the character of such pretenders on the topic of integrity, that seeks to censor the honest opinion of other people. Character is important, especially among so-called leaders.
To take for granted the policies proposed by the Democratic/Republican duopoly ensures continuation of a failing system. New leaders are currently promoting valid approaches to health care that is comprehensive and more affordable than the current system—–https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30857-6/fulltext–Given that saving lives is the paramount goal of a health-care system, any plan that expands health-care coverage is progress. Nonetheless, the economics of different plans are at the heart of the ongoing debate.Our calculations indicate that incremental steps to achieve universal coverage en route to a single-payer system are a worthy investment. At the same time, expansion without structural improvement is not ideal. Medicare for All is the end-game strategy both economically and morally.

Custom had unfolded for no good reason over the years of imposing construction products onto local communities before the community members had been sufficiently informed as to intention. It was only through the public-safety advocacy of citizens who have been labeled by local bureaucrats as activists, has the safety and well-being of local communities been noticed—–https://wbng.com/2020/10/21/broome-county-development-agency-votes-no-on-tax-relief-for-proposed-wind-farm-project/–“We do have a required public hearing, and as well we always take comments from the community and any project and forward them to the board so I think it’s important to note that public comment and public opinion is something that is always a factor in every decision,” Duncan says.

One doesn’t know that this corporation called Bluestone is the same Bluestone that the Broome County Sheriff moonlighted within the last decade, according to reports in the local newspaper, but if so, that proposals to crack down on so-labeled activists who annoy law enforcement are especially noteworthy. And so the circle would be closed, if these plausible connections are actual.
Local US communities aren’t so exceptional in the care and keeping of Representatives of The People, that they aren’t experiencing the same exploitation as is the case around the globe, of local communities by capitalistic Establishment—https://www.ciel.org/news/ngabe-bugle-and-campesinos-indigenous-peoples-declare-we-have-not-granted-our-prior-consent-for-panamas-fourth-transmission-line-in-a-statement-before-the-united-nations/——Feliciano Santos, a representative of the Indigenous Ngäbe, Buglé, and Campesino communities affected by the Fourth Transmission Line and Coordinator of the Movement for the Defense of the Territories and Ecosystems of Bocas del Toro (MODETEAB), stated:As has already happened in other indigenous territories where development projects have gone forward without consultation, we foresee that the Fourth Transmission Line would displace us from our ancestral lands, jeopardize our traditional ways of life, and expose us to heightened rates of disease, in addition to causing deforestation and pollution in the affected areas. Despite these anticipated risks, as well as the current situation of the pandemic that is exacerbating them, the State of Panama has refused to take adequate measures to respect our rights as Indigenous Peoples before moving forward with the Fourth Transmission Line.We reiterate that we object to the Fourth Line, which reveals a persistent pattern of illegitimate imposition of projects and economic priorities of outsiders in our ancestral territories. For this reason, we seek to make our claims heard at the international level, including through the current UN periodic review of the Panamanian State.Sarah Dorman, an Attorney with the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL), stated:By failing to secure the right of all indigenous communities affected by the Fourth Transmission Line to consultation and prior consent, the Panamanian State has failed to comply with the recommendation that it accepted in this regard during its first UPR. We hope that the current international review of Panama will shed light on the violations of the rights of Indigenous Peoples that continue to occur in the context of the Fourth Line and that it will lead to a real commitment by the Panamanian authorities not to advance with the Fourth Line until a process of free, prior, and informed consent is carried out with all affected communities of the Indigenous Ngäbe, Bugle and Campesino Peoples.The UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has already been informed of these communities’ concerns about the legitimacy of the Fourth Transmission Line and the project’s potential impacts. Information presented by the Ngäbe, Buglé and Campesino Peoples, with the support of CIEL, was directly referenced in a report prepared by the OHCHR for submission to the Human Rights Council as part of the UPR of Panama.

Cynical labeling of local US communities as “exceptional”, by politicians, seem to have stymied the ability of too many people to think for themselves. What commercial interests have done to foreign local communities has also been perpetrated against We The People.

C-Span tends to present info that is about as balanced as possible. A terrible mistake has been perpetrated as we have watched our so-called Representatives of the People abandon principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic to erroneously embrace capitalism. To those characters who remind We The People that we are not a democracy, but we are a republic, may one remind that when our politicians are bought into public service by big-money interests as they both collaborate within ALEC (www.alec.org), via the illegitimate Supreme Court decision called Citizens United, that legalized corruption in our electoral process, it isn’t a republic, it is a fascist state.
The slow betrayal of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic by bought-off politicians in favor of the self-enriching capitalism began long before Trump. That the Democratic Establishment shoe-horned into the Presidential candidacy Joe Biden, seems to be an inability to turn their ship of corruption and hubris sufficiently to have chosen a candidate supporting principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic. Many people for years have urged consideration about such questionable behavior as the Hillary Clinton State Department and the Clinton Foundation, to name only one among many, that seem to reveal an oligarchy gone arrogant.
Nepotism and so-called networking is the work of Pyramid Schemes.
Consider the Purdue style of justice—-https://portside.org/2020-10-21/state-attorneys-general-blast-dojs-purdue-pharma-settlement-mirage-justice–“This settlement provides a mere mirage of justice for the victims of Purdue’s callous misconduct,” Connecticut Attorney General William Tong (D) said in a statement. “The federal government had the power here to put the Sacklers in jail, and they didn’t. Instead, they took fines and penalties that [Purdue] likely will never fully pay.”As part of the $8.3 billion settlement, Purdue pleaded guilty to three federal criminal charges, including conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government and violating federal anti-kickback laws by paying doctors to write more prescriptions for OxyContin, a painkiller Purdue manufactures.–end of portside info–

That previous Presidential Administrations slid down the slope into corruption seems the reason we today have government “run like a business” that on a continuum is organized crime.
Much is mentioned today about the illegality of intimidation of voters after a long Democratic Primary and actually since 1026. when voters have been denigrated by Democratic Establishment…..especially white women……because they didn’t vote the choice of Democratic Establishment in Hillary Clinton i 2016. Hmmm……
The responsibility of the voter is to research sources that have been honest in reporting—-https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2020/oct/06/viral-image/proud-boys-leader-who-helps-run-latinos-trump-grou/–Enrique Tarrio, who is chairman of the Proud Boys, is also the Florida state director of a group called Latinos for Trump. However, the Latinos for Trump group Tarrio helps run is not affiliated with the official Trump campaign in any way. he statement is partially accurate but leaves out important context: there are two Latinos for Trump groups — one sanctioned by the Trump campaign and another outside the campaign’s purview. This post inaccurately suggests the Trump campaign hired a leader of the Proud Boys to run some campaign operations in Florida. That’s not what happened. We rate this post Half True

The historical political background of the USA is complicated. The Republican/Democratic duopoly seem to have succeeded in white-washing history into a silly Reality Show fantasy. Cuba is one such historical anomaly. The Cuban Revolution is a case in point. We should be capable of rejecting the communism of Cuba intellectually, while admitting the validity of the improvement in physical quality of life for the average Cuban. Cuba offers an educational system that has resulted in reportedly higher literacy rates than in the USA and a comprehensive public health care policy that is so competent that it is used around the globe to improve the health care in other nations. The USA could use some assistnace.
One doesn’t speak to the FACTS of the Cuban Revolution, but reports suggest an offshoot was that organized crime characters were kicked out and ended up in Florida.
Propaganda to support capitalism is a reason the granular reality of history has been replaced with Reality Show absurdity. And so, any American considering the complicated character of US history, may be labeled a Russian asset.
But the question remains whether the USA will be “run like a government”, or will be a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic with governance of, by and for The People—-https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/climate/trump-environment-rollbacks-list.html–Over four years in office, the Trump administration has dismantled major climate policies and rolled back many more rules governing clean air, water, wildlife and toxic chemicals.While other administrations have emphasized cutting regulations, calling them burdensome to industries like coal, oil and gas, the scope of actions under Mr. Trump is “fundamentally different,” said Hana V. Vizcarra, a staff attorney at Harvard Law School’s Environmental and Energy Law Program.

In other words, previous capitalist-owned Presidential Administrations have set the stage for fascism, may be one perspective. Voters, when you are in a hole, stop digging.
Both branches of the Republican/Democratic duopoly are terrified of socialism, while they promote neo-liberalism and/or fascism. Questions, anyone?—-https://www.blackagendareport.com/liberalism-fascism-good-cop-bad-cop-capitalism–What a materialist analysis demonstrates is that liberalism and fascism, contrary to what the dominant ideology maintains, are not opposites.

https://www.blackagendareport.com/freedom-rider-biden-and-liberal-censorship–It is Democrats and the technology companies which support them that are doing most of the censoring that is identified with fascist societies.
“The Washington Post created Propaganda or Not, Propornot, a secretive group which labeled Black Agenda Report and others as Russian assets in 2016.”We can thank liberals for turning social media platforms into the biggest champions of censorship in the country. Frustrated in the wake of the 2016 election debacle, they rushed to cover up for their own failures and used Russia as their scapegoat. Russiagate began even while the campaign was still in progress, as Hillary Clinton tried unsuccessfully to label Donald Trump a “Putin puppet” and worked with surveillance state insiders to make their tall tale appear real.

Your vote will translate into policy and legislation by which you will live. This doesn’t mean that if you want Medicare For All and you vote for Biden, Biden will suddenly embrace Medicare For All. This means if you want Medicare For All, as one example among many political policies, you need to vote for the politician who will implement said policy.

Neuman called “outrageous” the campaigns’ demands that they control the selection of questioners, the composition of the audience, hall access for the press and other issues.”The campaigns’ agreement is a closed-door masterpiece,” Neuman said. “Never in the history of the League of Women Voters have two candidates’ organizations come to us with such stringent, unyielding and self-serving demands.”Neuman said she and the League regretted that the American people have had no real opportunities to judge the presidential nominees outside of campaign-controlled environments.—-end of lwv info—In other words, (paraphrase) patriarchy says, “we’ll handle it from here, little ladies”—https://straty.com/controlling-outcomes-controlling-table-stakes/—After studying the election process in 1985, the bipartisan National Commission on Elections recommended “turning over the sponsorship of Presidential debates to the two major parties”.

The commission was staffed by members from the two parties and chaired by the heads of the Democratic and Republican parties… (wikipedia)
—end of straty info—https://www.debates.org/—The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) was established in 1987 to ensure, for the benefit of the American electorate, that general election debates between or among the leading candidates for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States are a permanent part of the electoral process. CPD’s primary purpose is to sponsor and produce the quadrennial general election debates and to undertake research and educational activities relating to the debates. The organization, which is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, 501(c)(3) corporation, sponsored all of the presidential debates in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016

This means We The People have nothing to say in our own governance.Consider the large number of voters who do not embrace the policies of either of the Democratic Establishment or Republican Establishment, and the fact that the Democratic Establishment and Republican Establishment have swindled the American electorate out of unbiased information directly from possible Presidential choices; often outside of the Capitalist Party D&R. Since these disgusting events in the ’80’s, state-run/corporate-owned MSM has consistently indoctrinated We The People into accepting the falsehood that “we are a 2-Party system”. This has had the effect of rending illegitimate, the deeply legitimate tradition of free, clean, and fair elections.
In other words, politicians are now choosing their voters, rather than voters choosing their politicians.
Acting on the human frailty of ignorance combined with arrogance, and using as an example the Democratic Establishment, one recognizes what is called a Democratic Base that believes in their right to dictate to others, their voting choices. —–https://www.haudenosauneeconfederacy.com/influence-on-democracy/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pIDtvTydkU&t=638s
