Politics Of Women
The Democratic Party is focused less on Climate Change, health care policy, or economic fairness than they are in suppressing the Green Party, it would seem.
Use of this energy to promote and wield excellence in governance by Democrats could ensure successful elections, cutting out the big-money interest campaign funding middlemen, and ensuring election by voters who are uplifted by policy. Instead the Democratic/Republican duopoly appear to continue to rely on games and tricks—-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jw4sOLfeHng———————————-Krystal Ball: Dem WAR On Green Party Exposes Voter Suppression Hypocrisy
The need for diversity in view is becoming increasingly apparent. That is the strength of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic, if it was honored as such.
Western medicine has value but not more so than Native or Eastern medicine. Monopoly by Western medicine that falls short of protecting good health, has transformed integrity in the American medical community into a money-making prospect as a primary goal. The benefits from Western medicine are undermined by the capitalistic hierarchical Establishment. In 2020 we surely do have rationing of health care to those deemed deserving byway of financial position rather than based upon humane consideration. In 2020, governmental bureaucrats run our medical system rather than M. D.’s as has been apparent in the Covid-19 pandemic—-https://www.yesmagazine.org/environment/2020/09/18/environmental-science-indigenous-educators/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=YESDaily_20200921&utm_content=YESDaily_20200921+CID_b06079974e435ad5afe5fcc24554623a&utm_source=CM&utm_term=Read%20the%20full%20story——Another aspect of this knowledge that Western science tends to miss, Chisholm Hatfield says, is the long-term impacts of actions, which has led to problems such as climate change. But such thinking is central to Indigenous knowledge, and Chisholm Hatfield teaches her students this. In Traditional Ecological Knowledge, she says, it’s critical to look at a minimum of three generations’ worth of knowledge before making a decision.

——–end of nina turner retweet—-Practices pertaining to lifestyle and medicine of many Europeans, are often similar to that of Native Americans. That the above currently relevant post appeared on CELDF that began as environmental protection for local communities against capitalistic hierarchical Establishment predatory behavior, seems to expand into civil rights. This is gratifying since separation of human, environmental and civil rights violations is senseless. Each is related to the other. To challenge environmental rights violations before they become civil rights violations is sensible.
The Democratic/Republican duopoly have separated these rights violations the better to confuse and divide and conquer.
In our Eastern-European household and with children, natural remedies predominated. One recalls a childhood illness in which school attendance was interrupted for 2 weeks. When the school nurse called to find out where I was, I recall Mom on the phone saying I had been sick, but better now, only still spitting up blood. The school wouldn’t let me back into class until I saw a doctor, where it was confirmed pneumonia had been the illness, but I was okay now. One’s parents all ready knew that. Herbal remedies had been used effectively.
The point is well taken by one who remembers the polio terror in the ’50’s, along with fellow classmates who had contracted polio—–https://portside.org/2020-09-20/networks-women-behind-polio-vaccine—–Women have historically had their achievements in science overlooked, forgotten, or even stolen. -Without the founding work of people like Dr. Isabel Morgan and Bernice Eddy, and the millions of dollars raised by women and girls, the polio vaccine would not exist today.In addition, mothers across the nation took part in the annual Million Mothers March to raise millions of dollars to support the development of a polio vaccine.

The Democratic/Republican duopoly has during the current Primary campaign season used race and sex to divide and conquer to promote their personal capitalistic hierarchical Establishment candidate choice. One has heard within the Democratic strategists, a repeated refrain about getting feet off necks in order to allow people to rise, and this was not in reference to Women’s Liberation. So may one touch on an apparent origin of that foot and neck phrase—–https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/01/opinions/ruth-bader-ginsburg-rbg-and-grimke-sisters-louise-knight/index.html–Halfway through the film, she repeats the statement — as viewers, we sense it is very much a personal mantra for Ginsburg — but this time we learn that these aren’t her words. They are the words of Sarah Grimké.
Many who view the film may well be asking: Who is Sarah Grimké? As an obvious influence on Ginsburg, was she an earlier woman judge? A pioneer, before Ginsburg, in feminist law?
–end cnn info——This is especially egregious when the phrase has been used along with insinuation against women….especially white women. It’s not that phrases can’t be shared, but when taken from the same gender as is then denigrated seems like overkill of misogyny.
Natural medicine was the work of women in the Middle Ages. Patriarchy took control by use of allegations of witchcraft against practitioners, creation of universities for male-only students, and laws that only licensed university grads could address health problems. Many women died due to “lawful” prosecution on these precepts. The topic of Choice will again soon be under question on these types of precepts.
Also caught up in the capitalistic hierarchical Establishment privilege and greed is the topic of herbal remedies in general, including marijuana. Natural remedies are sensible for natural good health.

Indeed the family herbals were grown on our small family farm which is on ancestral Haudenosaunee land. That Western medicine in 2020 is based on profiteering is good for few people other than capitalistic hierarchical Establishment.

“People of color and low-income communities are the principal victims of climate change. We face this existential threat to our future since the leaders of both major parties, in exchange for campaign contributions, allow fossil fuel companies and others to pollute and exploit such communities. We can not solve climate change without system change, including ending racial injustice,” said Hawkins, the first US candidate to campaign for a Green New Deal in his 2010 race for Governor of New York.Hawkins noted that the march included the key demands of zero emissions by 2030 and a halt to new fossil fuel infrastructure, positions opposed by Trump and Democrats, including Biden. Trump and Biden also oppose an immediate ban on fracking, a position Hawkins first campaigned for in 2010.

During our Primary campaign season of 2020, the Republican/Democratic duopoly have surgically used race and sex to divide and conquer. In fact, they have used all of violations of human, environmental, and civil rights to divide and conquer voters, and so divide We The People into opposing camps based on Establishment requirements.
Simple respect for principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic has been undermined by the corporations Democratic and Republican.
Are the corporations Republican and Democratic both too concerned with control and power, rather than principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic?–https://sirota.substack.com/p/aoc-to-schumer-we-must-use-every?token=eyJ1c2VyX2lkIjoyMTU0NTE0LCJwb3N0X2lkIjozMTEyODMwLCJfIjoiOXRKckwiLCJpYXQiOjE2MDA2OTk0MTEsImV4cCI6MTYwMDcwMzAxMSwiaXNzIjoicHViLTM3Nzc4Iiwic3ViIjoicG9zdC1yZWFjdGlvbiJ9.LK5oud4QLznfv5sV-mXwDdSS_xtzoiuX8q_nAj-bA2c–

So-labeled New Democrats also believed their version of the Green New Deal would be considered within the Democratic branch of the R&D duopoly. The “2-Party” presumption is a hard nut to crack, even when evidence of self-serving marches on.
Neither Biden or Trump are willing to address the pay-to-play health insurance industry in order to provide a comprehensive and universal public health care policy that makes sense for We The People—-https://thenextsystem.org/learn/stories/defund-militarization-local-police-and-fund-community-needs-instead?mc_cid=67fa17bfd5&mc_eid=5de9710347–The repeated police killings of unarmed Black people have driven a movement to defund and demilitarize police departments. One step many are calling for is the termination of the federal law known as Section 1033, the policy of transferring military equipment to police departments, free of charge. Under Section 1033, $7.4 billion worth of war machinery has been transferred to police departments since the 1990s. That has scaled up as Iraq War equipment became surplus, making available to local police equipment like MRAP (mine resistant, ambush protected) vehicles recently used to attack Black Lives Matter protesters. –end of thenextsystem info–

https://wbng.com/2020/07/15/sheriffs-call-for-changes-to-state-laws-to-protect-public-officers/————–Mouthing words to suggest this legislation would “protect the public” by better controlling the public by law enforcement, this seems more like a law looking for a crime. In fact, this summer of 2020 has seen several women murdered in domestic violence situations. One wishes total safety for law enforcement, but none of this seems to make sense.
If both mental and physical health were addressed rather than control after the fact, one believes we would all be safer. Money could be used to that end. This could also address hierarchy that may be a part of the problem rather than the solution.
As the capitalistic hierarchical Establishment of the Democratic/Republican duopoly talk over the heads of the majority of We The People, about governance, consider the effect of this anomaly on We The People—-https://www.epi.org/publication/50-reasons/?utm_source=Economic+Policy+Institute&utm_campaign=e983526219-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_02_21_07_37_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_e7c5826c50-e983526219-58658745&mc_cid=e983526219&mc_eid=ebdc430ee8–This report provides a review of the Trump administration’s 50 most egregious attacks on working people since Trump took office. This analysis reveals that President Trump’s time in office has been marked by a clear commitment to advancing a pro-corporate, anti-worker agenda.
–end of epi info–The public should have had such a list of grievances against We The People when Democrats were in the Office of the Presidency and reigned over mass incarceration, NAFTA, TPP, and promotion of use of fossil fuels. Also in question would be Obamacare/ACA rather than a comprehensive and universal public health care policy, and pollution of our air, land and water to promote industrial profiteering. And we can’t overlook the so-called globalization that was the re-framing of the ages-old imperialism using The Military-Industrial Complex to protect the profits of American oligarchs around the globe.
The Democratic/Republican duopoly is the answer to the 1-Party system of the Former USSR.

The role of social movements is to make demands. So reminds Howie Hawkins. So why are current Republican/Democratic social movements silent? Perhaps because there is no social movement.

One is positive one is not alone in doing so.Lost in the fog of political corruption over several decades, is the fact that the Presidential debates were once in the capable hands of the League of Women Voters—-https://www.lwv.org/newsroom/press-releases/league-refuses-help-perpetrate-fraud—-Most objectionable to the League, Neuman said, were conditions in the agreement that gave the campaigns unprecedented control over the proceedings. Neuman called “outrageous” the campaigns’ demands that they control the selection of questioners, the composition of the audience, hall access for the press and other issues.”The campaigns’ agreement is a closed-door masterpiece,” Neuman said. “Never in the history of the League of Women Voters have two candidates’ organizations come to us with such stringent, unyielding and self-serving demands.”Neuman said she and the League regretted that the American people have had no real opportunities to judge the presidential nominees outside of campaign-controlled environments.—-end of lwv info—In other words, (paraphrase) patriarchy says, “we’ll handle it from here, little ladies”—https://straty.com/controlling-outcomes-controlling-table-stakes/—After studying the election process in 1985, the bipartisan National Commission on Elections recommended “turning over the sponsorship of Presidential debates to the two major parties”. The CPD was established in 1987 by the chairmen of the Democratic and Republican Parties to “take control of the Presidential debates”. The commission was staffed by members from the two parties and chaired by the heads of the Democratic and Republican parties… (wikipedia)
—end of straty info—https://www.debates.org/—The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) was established in 1987 to ensure, for the benefit of the American electorate, that general election debates between or among the leading candidates for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States are a permanent part of the electoral process. CPD’s primary purpose is to sponsor and produce the quadrennial general election debates and to undertake research and educational activities relating to the debates. The organization, which is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, 501(c)(3) corporation, sponsored all of the presidential debates in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016

This means We The People have nothing to say in our own governance.Consider the large number of voters who do not embrace the policies of either of the Democratic Establishment or Republican Establishment, and the fact that the Democratic Establishment and Republican Establishment have swindled the American electorate out of unbiased information directly from possible Presidential choices; often outside of the Capitalist Party D&R. Since these disgusting events in the ’80’s, state-run/corporate-owned MSM has consistently indoctrinated We The People into accepting the falsehood that “we are a 2-Party system”. This has had the effect of rending illegitimate, the deeply legitimate tradition of free, clean, and fair elections.
In other words, politicians are now choosing their voters, rather than voters choosing their politicians.
Acting on the human frailty of ignorance combined with arrogance, and using as an example the Democratic Establishment, one recognizes what is called a Democratic Base that believes in their right to dictate to others, their voting choices. —–https://www.haudenosauneeconfederacy.com/influence-on-democracy/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pIDtvTydkU&t=638s
