Congress has concerns about abuse of the US public by the commercial entity known as TikTok, that is affiliated with China.  Hmm….concern for the US public; better late than never.

Lindsay Gorman on TikTok and China National Security Threats

Lindsay Gorman, a senior fellow at the Alliance for Securing Democracy, talked about Chinese President Xi Jinping’s state visit to Moscow this week and the potential Chinese influence over TikTok.–end of c-span info–

The TikTok phenomenon is a facet of the globalism that has afflicted US local communities over decades while hierarchy personally profits.  A mention was made on C-Span that TikTok and China is currently under review, but could expand to other social media sites from foreign nations.  Obviously this is the partitioning off of humanity from globalism the better to promote the financial side of globalism.  Quite frankly the targets for exploitation are the world population.  Becoming obvious is the uplifting of international oligarchs at the expense of humanity and nature.  

Media exploitation in the US has continued unabated over decades.  That China is the player seems to be the difference that has attracted the attention of Congress.

Pre TPP and globalism, some commerce interests played fast and loose with the USA for profit, as the courts slowly passed decisions to diminish Corporate Charter Revocation that The Founders appeared to support as a check on criminal behavior toward people and nature.

New items of harm to the public continue to mount.https://www.aol.com/news/scientists-uncover-startling-concentrations-pure-222417480.html –First it was the eerie images of barrels leaking on the seafloor not far from Catalina Island. Then the shocking realization that the nation’s largest manufacturer of DDT had once used the ocean as a huge dumping ground — and that as many as half a million barrels of its acid waste had been poured straight into the water.Now, scientists have discovered that much of the DDT — which had been dumped largely in the 1940s and ’50s — never broke down. The chemical remains in its most potent form in startlingly high concentrations, spread across a wide swath of seafloor larger than the city of San Francisco.–end of aol info–

Oligarchy has been suggested as he ruling reality in the USA.  Evidence seems to support this concept.    So “Western values” are a topic of consideration, in one person’s view, as the reason to go to war in the name of “spreading democracy”.

Here is a questionable policy, some people believe.  —   https://www.rt.com/africa/573599-africom-coup-plotters-trained-gaetz/–General Michael Langley, the head of US AFRICOM, appeared to admit that the Pentagon’s “core values,” instilled into tens of thousands of African military officers, are compatible with staging coups as he was grilled during a House Armed Services Committee hearing by Republican Matt Gaetz (Florida) on Thursday. 

While AFRICOM condemned the Guinea coup as “inconsistent with US military training and education,” other coup plotters disagree. After Amadou Sanogo, a Malian officer trained by the US, overthrew his country’s government in 2012, he credited his American instruction with his success. 

“America is a great country with a fantastic army,” he said. “I tried to put all the things I learned there into practice here.”

Americans should be deeply suspicious about Russia and information originating from that nation.  Should we be at least aware of information from the Pentagon?  And so aspersions are cast upon the uplifting words of Ms Wing due to remuneration from questionable sources.  —    

Kelisa Wing is free to write books transparently expressing her thoughts, if she wishes.  Use of a taxpayer-funded position in promoting her personal work is the topic for question.   Would an educator sincere in intentions to ensure honesty in history curriculum use her position to self-promote?  Capitalistic hierarchical Establishment has accomplished too well it’s apparent intention of superimposing capitalism in place of democracy.  They are not the same and may be contradictory to each other.

https://openthebooks.substack.com/p/military-stonewalling-on-controversial    –However, we filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain her contract, salary, job description, and any conflict-of-interest paperwork she’d completed. The government produced a heavily redacted offer letter and job description. For example, the agency even redacted her name from the offer letter out of “privacy.”

–end of openthebooks info–

The good points articulated by Ms. Wing are shadowed by conflict of interest.  But then the entire political body at this point is pretty much tainted by the corruption buoyed by Citizens United.

Is wokism the dog whistle for capitalism?

And so the same concerns are applied to many well-meaning people, including in the Green Party.

The society of the USA  in 2023 seems the brain child of the Democratic/Republican Duopoly.  To expect a change by doing the same thing has been called a definition of insanity.    In the spirit of such ideas, let’s hear from he Green Party.  —

****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—–https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNbdkuU1edw          —#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.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ7kn2-GEmM       —

Ross Perot in 1992 on NAFTA and the “Giant Sucking Sound”

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 www.debates.org 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!
