PATRIARCHAL PRIVILEGE OF VOTIING
We need to remember to look behind the curtain at the mechanics of Establishment. This is where the control and privilege grows.
https://www.aol.com/news/georgia-da-gop-bankrolling-lawyers-191434827.html –A Yahoo News review of campaign finance filings shows that the Georgia Republican Party paid $35,419 last July to two lawyers who are representing 11 of 16 party operatives and activists who declared themselves on Dec. 14, 2020, “the duly elected and qualified” electors from the state pledged to Donald Trump despite the fact that Joe Biden had won the popular vote there.

The point is accepted that the death of Jina Amini could have been supported due to her Kurdish identity as much as due to her status as a woman. But it wasn’t a Kurdish man who attracted the concern of the Iranian “morality police”. Inordinate attention from political characters due to status as a woman is not isolated to Iran. The notions discussed in this article are worthy of consideration.
https://novaramedia.com/2022/10/04/jina-mahsa-amini-was-kurdish-and-that-matters/ –But regardless of whether or not her Kurdish identity played a significant role in the detention and brutal violence that led to Amini’s death, understating or concealing her ethnic origin represents a reproduction of colonial politics of the Iranian regime towards the Kurdish people. This attitude is a distillation of the power and suppression of the majority nation – even when expressed by well-meaning Persian feminists.

The appearances are subtle but inescapable in the Southern Tier of NYS, as one watches campaign ads on local media with phalanxes of men politicking for male candidates, some of which have interestingly creepy misogynistic information in their backgrounds. An example is a local television news so-called report of a candidate running for Congress without a complimentary so-called report about his opposition. The said Congressional candidate has reportedly in the past expressed interest in prosecution of women who choose an abortion. This is only one among several thumb-on-the-scale of patriarchy that can be mentioned. These are of course, personal opinions based on news reports aired locally.
Undisputed news reports in the Southern Tier about the interaction around misogyny of a few candidates go unaddressed, with promotion of candidates as family friendly continue. Domestic violence and predatory behavior are, by the way, offensive to some women. And so the reported meanderings of Walker is another ho-hum story.
Walker was interviewed by Fox News’ Sean Hannity later on Monday to respond to the allegation. He called it “a flat-out lie” but was circumspect about key aspects of the story.

Some people who received traditional enabling from parents, may have transferred the job to patriarchal Establishment. — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-8rsKyrpqM —

Continued pandering to such apparently self-dependent enabling by patriarchy can be offensive to some people.
From a self-defined 2nd-wave Feminist who attracted comments from young ladies over the last 25 years, after warning that hubris would be followed by the rejection by law of a woman’s right to control her own body, especially on the topic of Choice, one again will attract derision by warning that what once was acceptable behavior, known as domestic violence, can again become so defined and excluded from prosecution.
Politicking by those who support family values while working insult behind closed doors, so to speak, (it can also occur in public) should be a warning to women. Paranoia may have origins in experience.
In the perception of some people, this isn’t about male vs female, it is about a sideshow that deflects from predatory, exploiting, and violent behavior in the pursuit of wealth and power. This is harmful to everyone outside of the patriarchal circle. — https://portside.org/2022-10-04/40-year-robbing-rural-america?utm_source=portside-general&utm_medium=email —We discuss the destabilizing effects of such uneven development, the parallels between rural and urban landscapes of decline, and the political choices that sacrificed rural prosperity to urban agglomeration
The term isn’t used only one way. I think of it as referring to sites where capital came in, extracted wealth, and then left people worse off than they were before. This describes lots of places in the rural and small-town United States and in poor neighborhoods of big cities.–end of portside info–

From wecaninternational.org — This past month, we’ve seen more of the terrible realities fueled by climate chaos. In Pakistan, months of torrential flooding has displaced over 30 million people; in Puerto Rico, Hurricane Fiona caused an island-wide outage for its 3.3 million people; and just last week, Hurricane Ian became the deadliest storm to hit Florida since 1935. The inaction and delay of governments is deadly, and our hearts are with global communities who are experiencing the onslaught of climate disasters.
We know that as the climate crisis escalates we too must escalate our efforts to call for just and urgent climate action and to expand our on-the-ground solution projects.
WECAN is just returning from an inspiring and productive week in New York City advocating for climate justice during the UN General Assembly and Climate Week. Along with many movement leaders on the ground and joining us virtually, we were successful in amplifying the solutions and leadership of women and gender-diverse leaders fighting for an equitable and healthy planet during events, high-level meetings, report releases, strategy sessions, and street actions:
African Feminist Perspectives on COP27 and Beyond
Women Land Defenders on the Frontlines of Biodiversity Protection and Climate Action
Women Leading Fossil Fuel Divestment and Resistance

One sees patriarchy as a system of Establishment based on male presumption, and not about female vs male. We do have strong female enablers. As a NYS District 22 voter who suspects we didn’t have a fair and free election, the result was Tenney, who is again stirring the pot. You go girl.

As to the natural right of Choice for women, Dem’s say we must vote Democratic as the only path to retaining said right, after the Dem’s failed to codify Roe v Wade. Why would they solve a problem when they will better use fear for women as a campaign strategy, cloaked as a predominant issue for black woman, as they stress, after ignoring this crucial right in the 2020 Presidential campaign, in order to vilify women, and to use the phrase coined by Democratic campaign strategists, “especially white women”.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-zWQC0U7ac —
Oct 4, 2022 As Hillary Clinton compares Trump supporters to Nazis, she also praises, what the left are declaring, “fascist” Giorgia Meloni’s Italian election victory. So, much like the Nazis in Ukraine, are some fascists OK, or are all these terms just manufactured for political gain? –end of russellbrand info–
And the predatory and exploiting behavior for a few fortunate characters leads to wealth and privilege, for the rest of us we have Climate Change.
