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.”

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. —
