COURAGE OF YOUR CONVICTIONS
One understands the expression of relief from Russell Brand about the response from Cornel West to the welcome of Brand. Brand doesn’t toe a left or right line view, but rather seems to speak his truth. Consequently anyone so motivated is often painted with the broad brush of conspiracy theory by Neo-liberals. I would have anticipated nothing less from Cornel West, who is nothing if not straightforward.

The system is rigged, and expressions about suspicions are typically met with charges of conspiracy theory from capitalistic hierarchical apologists such as MSM. Dictatorship is about indoctrination of others into lack of confidence in their own perceptions. — https://portside.org/2023-03-19/wealthy-executives-make-millions-trading-competitors-stock-remarkable-timing?utm_source=portside-general&utm_medium=email —
Never-before-seen IRS records show that CEOs are sometimes making multimillion-dollar bets on the stocks of direct competitors and partners — and doing so with exquisite timing.
U.S. securities law bars “insider trading” — buying or selling stocks based on access to nonpublic information not available to other investors — under certain circumstances. Historically, insider trading prosecutions and SEC enforcement have both focused on corporate employees, and those close to them, trading in the stock of their own companies.
But executives at companies can also have extensive access to nonpublic information about rivals, partners or vendors through their business. Buying or selling stock based on that knowledge can run afoul of insider-trading law, according to experts. ProPublica described multiple trades, without mentioning names, to Robert Zink, a former chief of the Justice Department’s criminal fraud section, who responded that if he were still at the Justice Department, “of course we would look at it.” He added that the key to ProPublica’s findings is “the trading doesn’t appear to be a one- or two-time thing. It’s happening a lot.”

Industries and educational platforms exist solely for the purpose to enhance portfolios of the wealthiest people at the expense of the welfare of the general public. This seems particularly out of sync with principles of the US Constitution.
We are disclosing the tax details of the richest Americans because we believe the public interest in an informed debate outweighs privacy considerations.—-It is now clear that there isn’t just one such taxpayer — there are many, in multiple industries. We believe that disclosing the identities of billionaires who paid little to no taxes in years their fortunes grew by billions of dollars will help readers understand the magnitude of the tax advantages the ultrarich enjoy.

Preamble to the US Constitution suggests cooperation rather than competition. — “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 the United States”

Perhaps corruption byway of Citizens United that purchases lawmakers to pass laws beneficial to campaign donors, is instrumental in transforming the USA into a quasi feudal system.

The massacre by snipers of anti-government activists and police officers in Kiev’s Maidan Square in late February 2014 was a defining moment in the US-orchestrated overthrow of Ukraine’s elected government. The death of 70 protesters triggered an avalanche of international outrage that made President Viktor Yanukovych’s downfall a fait accompli. Yet today these killings remain unsolved.–end of popularresistance info–
