A reality-show President seems slowly to lose his polish to reality-show constituents.  If the Republican Party could regain the sense of humor that is grounded in self confidence, perhaps they would elect Liz Cheney as Speaker of The House.      –WASHINGTON (AP) — There was no violence. Many candidates who denied the legitimacy of previous elections lost and quietly conceded. And few listened when former President Donald Trump tried to stoke baseless allegations of electoral fraud.

For a moment, at least, there’s a sense of normalcy in the U.S.–end of aol info–

Oak Flat:  Biden’s Justice Department opposes friends of the court filing of Apache Elders, NCAI, and Grandmothers

–end of censorednews info–    —The Biden Administration’s Department of Justice (“DOJ”) filed papers in the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday evening trying to stop the traditional Apache from protecting their religious and treaty rights at Oak Flat in eastern Arizona.

On March 18, 2021, Apache Stronghold appealed to the 9th Circuit to stop the destruction of Oak Flat or Chi’chil Bildagoteel by foreign mining companies which violates both the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the 1852 Treaty between the Apache and the U.S. government.–end of indiancountrytoday info–      —This week the People’s Republic of China made claims again on the island of Taiwan, this time threatening force and scrambling jet fighters at the U.S. plane approaching Taiwan earlier today with U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi aboard the U.S. passenger jet. Such hypocrisy by China, given that China continues to deny the sovereignty and international human rights of Apaches through China’s major ownership share in the Anglo Australian mining giant, Rio Tinto. And they all plan to destroy our sacred place, Chi’chil Biłdagoteel, which in English means: “Emory Oak extends on a Level”, or “Oak Flat.”

The Obama/Biden Administration was enthusiastic if not manic to “fast-track” the trade agreement called TPP that included language that prioritized the interests of multi-national corporations over interests of local communities.

Obama said that TPP would produce “winners and losers”.  Apparently US local communities would be among the losers. —

President Biden also raised ongoing concerns about China’s non-market economic practices, which harm American workers and families, and workers and families around the world.–end of whitehouse info–

9:47AM–paraphrase–from Scott Kennedy–China is a surveillance state with cameras everywhere one travels.

This seems probable on the topic of surveillance but not different from the USA.  Yet to express this probability as though the same isn’t true of the USA is a type of propaganda that has been used so relentlessly as to go unnoticed by many of the public.

These bits of news are relevant when one recalls ongoing commercial/governmental MSM insults against any of the public who speak out against globalism as advanced by government/commerce, with the label of isolationist for those who object.  Meanwhile, laws and policies have been enacted that give advantage (winners and losers again) to hierarchical Establishment over interests of We The People.  One will share once more due to relevance, the following explanation of this view…..

On the topic of an economy that functions in a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic, Establishment seems to have superimposed capitalism over free market principles.  Reasons supporting this view—

*Trade agreements promoted by politicians bought into positions of power byway of Citizens United have sent jobs and manufacturing to foreign nations

*Family income has been reduced dramatically due to trade agreements

*Said trade agreements have included language that prioritizes interests of multi-national corporations over local-community human rights and rights of nature

*When manufacturing is predominantly foreign, US consumers are at the mercy of foreign nations and a questionable supply chain

*The Trump tariff was imposed when tariffs are traditionally used to balance import/export ratios to ensure money isn’t flowing out of the US but instead is flowing into the US

*To impose a tariff on imports when manufacturing has been legislatively forced to foreign nations is predatory toward US consumers and supports inflation

*Previous to current Pyramid-Scheme economics, sole-proprietorship business which is the core of free markets, were undermined legislatively in favor of corporate chains

*Recently sole props have used the internet to purchase low-cost products from overseas in order to maintain local-community store fronts

*The Trump tariff short-circuited this ability for sole props to so participate in such global free market activity because a sole prop is taxed personally to the owner and so imposes the tariff directly upon said sole proprietor, while corporations are legislatively taxed more favorably to their business interest

*And so precision predatory behavior toward We The People by corporate/politician collaboration is US economic policy

….what they do, not what they say……or alternatively, correctly hear and interpret what is said…..

****As one who would be perfectly contented to retain the Senate if they adhered to Oaths of Office more than to Citizens United campaign donations, one is interested in a topic raised as to the reason we maintain the US Senate—-

 This is a reminder of how much we don’t know.  This brings one around to Howie Hawkins, who continues to impress with original thought.  We also could acknowledge Hawkins often speaks to censored information.
One such topic about which one would never have even considered, is whether the USA needs The Senate.  Apparently The Senate is little other than expensive window dressing, promoting hierarchical interests, and too often placed in positions of power by big-money via Citizens United.  But the public gets to fund this curiosity of pompous supremacy.  Who knew?
The Democratic Branch of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly are especially functional in voter suppression—–          —#GreenSocialist Notes #76
Howie Hawkins brings up the concept of whether the USA needs the Senate.  Apparently according to some people, the Senate isn’t necessary.  This brings up the blockage from the Senate of many bills that would benefit We The People.  Combined with Citizens United that promotes big-money interest choice of Senators, in which laws are passed that benefit big-money interest rather than We The People, and that We The People support economically, the members of the Senate, this seems a good topic for discussion.
The US Constitution doesn’t seem to sanction elections run by political Parties, and to permit control of political debates by political Parties seems equally corrupt.       —

Centralization is the lifeblood of the R&D duopoly.  It’s the way to enforce capitalism onto workers in 2022.———————–We can do better———-

That “we are a 2-Party system” is a fabrication of the Republican/Democratic duopoly and spread by MSM.  In FACT the majority of voters aren’t either registered Democratic or Republican.  The censorship about this info must be envied by bureaucrats of the Former USSR and their simplistic style of 1-Party elections.  

Regardless of which character sits in the Oval Office, We The People have work to do to maintain principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  Several items to challenge—*We need the integrity of ranked-choice voting so voters won’t feel compelled to “hold your nose and vote”*Censored debates must be stopped.  The Democratic/Republican duopoly pretends to legitimate debates in what is nothing other than another campaign show.  Independent debates run by uninterested sponsors such as The League of Women Voters, must be restored.  (Access to understand the extent of duopoly control).  The so-called Debate Commission is a corporation to promote the Democratic corporation and Republican corporation, not to inform We The People*Challenge and stop gerrymandering that is a trick especially of the Republican branch of the duopoly.*Stop voter suppression by political Parties, and especially confront and stop Party suppression, which is the over-arching approach to voter suppression.  Party suppression seems to have been the responsibility of the Democratic corporation*Promote by law ranked-choice voting, so we won’t be told again, by D&R duopoly, to “hold your nose and vote”
If these issues are handled, our next elections can be honorable.

WITHDRAWS SUPPORT FROM FINAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE–end of lwv info–Murray Bookchin, who founded social ecology, a theory that strongly influenced early Green Socialist thought, strongly advocated the discussion and study group as the first step of any revolutionary movement. A group of individuals meets to expand their knowledge of radical thought and form a radical intellectual community; through the give and take of discussion, can eventually form ideas for next steps in organizing and political activity. According to Bookchin, study groups help create solidarity and a shared language — with a shared coherent vision — for building a mass, organizing, political movement!
