Questions For Debate
The political debates are a farce because they are surgically controlled by cable channel Mainstream Media enablers of the Republican/Democratic duopoly as one may learn by accessing www.debates.org. This sorry faction censors out ideas contrary to their perspective. Yet, even so questions can be asked that may raise red flags for voters who may otherwise fail to look behind the capitalistic hierarchical curtain.
Questions, anyone? ——
https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/09/22/covid-funds-pentagon/–A $1 billion fund Congress gave the Pentagon in March to build up the country’s supplies of medical equipment has instead been mostly funneled to defense contractors and used to make things such as jet engine parts, body armor and dress uniforms.–end of Publiccitizen info—
After mishandling the governance of the USA to the extent of Climate Change devastation, the time is now to draw from the views of the First Nations from which our original US Constitution was borrowed. The voices of the ancestors of the origin of the principles of the US Constitution have been censored for too long—-https://twitter.com/movementrights/status/1308172902030651392?cn=ZmxleGlibGVfcmVjcw%3D%3D&refsrc=email–REMINDER TOMORROW: If you registered for Zoom, you will get an email reminder OR watch live on FB here: https://facebook.com/movementrights

Received from CELDF—-https://twitter.com/CELDF/status/1308412495481253889?cn=ZmxleGlibGVfcmVjcw%3D%3D&refsrc=email–“The pipeline developer has shown no regard for them, and no remorse for its actions. MVP should not be allowed to continue for a single additional day, much less two years.” https://buff.ly/3mHHdcq

Censorship that was taken for granted toward Indigenous groups have swallowed up environmental groups, reportedly—-https://www.ecowatch.com/facebook-suspends-environmental-groups-2647778071.html–The suspended activists also pointed out that the social media giant has allowed right-wing groups and posts to spread false information or encourage violence without suspending them. For example, the CO2 Coalition, a group that argues carbon dioxide is beneficial, was able to bypass a Facebook fact check this month by publishing its article as opinion, The Guardian pointed out. Facebook also refused to act on complaints when a militia group used the platform to urge armed people to attend a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, according to the National Observer.

This is what dictatorship looks like—-https://portside.org/2020-09-23/sledgehammer-permanently-silence-opposing-voices-outrage-over-florida-gov-desantis–Furthermore, the measure attaches Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) liability to “anyone who organizes or funds a violent or disorderly assembly.” It also contains provisions barring state grants to municipalities that defund police, and terminates state benefits to anyone “convicted of participating in a violent or disorderly assembly.”

The government that has informed We The People it will eschew principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic in order to “run government like a business”, which on a continuum is organized crime, will use RICO against protesters.
Dictatorships need a militarized police force—https://portside.org/2020-09-23/progressive-prosecutor-faces-portlands-aggressive-police–Peaceful protesters noted that police seemed to have doubled down on their crackdown, arresting them more violently and indiscriminately charging them with rioting.Forrest Woods, who has attended almost every protest in the last four months and was recently arrested for the first time, said police seemed to have responded to Schmidt’s policy by taking their frustration out on protesters. “Like, if the DA is not going to keep us safe, we’re going to have to go out there and punish these protesters,” he said.–end of portside info–
The concerns of protesters are generally about violations of human, environmental, and civil rights. The “government run like a business” and their police state seem to be about exploitation for profit. —https://mailchi.mp/19da7282bbe9/green-party-of-st-louis-meeting-wed-april-19-2017-recent-and-future-elections-1130514?e=3a5a3df2b7–Howie Hawkins, moderator, is a member of the Green Party.The webinar is sponsored by No Spray Coalition (St. Louis), Beyond

A “government run like a business” is concerned with current profiteering by players rather than for future generations—https://mailchi.mp/ourchildrenstrust/standing-in-solidarity-1021242?e=b22f370248–For ten years, the team at Our Children’s Trust has worked to ensure that the legal right to a stable climate is protected by our nation’s courts for youth around the world.

Both Trump and Biden support privatized health insurance rather than a comprehensive and universal health national health care policy and Medicare For All. Some nurses have a different view. Who should we trust?—-https://theworldtransformed.org/twt20/socialist-demands-era-coronavirus/healthcare-crisis-building-international-solidarity/?akid=64929.49731.LRS3-G&rd=1&source=%3Dema20200923-64929&t=3–Decades of cuts and privatization in health care left us vulnerable to coronavirus. How can we ensure that health care workers have the protections they need and ensure that testing, treatments, and a future vaccine are available to all? Join us to hear how nurses and health justice activists around the world are fighting back to protect themselves, their patients, and their communities and discuss what it could mean to build meaningful international solidarity in response to this global pandemic.

A dictatorship is in place for the benefit of Establishment. Capitalism is hierarchical and is based on concepts of a Pyramid Scheme. Use of militarized police forces are convenient to maintain order when inequality and lack of justice prevails, as it must in a hierarchical system that is masking as a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.
The bait-and-switch between systems has caused confusion. Trump seems transparent in expressing dictatorial propensities that at least will be less confusing.——https://www.pogo.org/?utm_source=corrupted&utm_medium=email&utm_content=header-logo&emci=dfb86488-70fe-ea11-96f5-00155d03affc&emdi=2ded6807-7ffe-ea11-96f5-00155d03affc&ceid=42183——With Congress unable to agree on another relief package, the Federal Reserve has come under the microscope. The contrast between the Fed’s robust purchases of bonds from large corporations and its lackluster programs aimed at mid-sized companies and local governments line up with this K-shaped recovery.The Fed stabilized Wall Street, so why can’t it do the same for everyone else?–end of pogo info–
One has noticed a propensity for youthful and untried devices of capitalistic hierarchical Establishment as employed on MSM, are delightfully sunny in the hubris of so-called positivity. Charming as this is, a bit of reality works wonders, if not miracles.—–https://www.democracyatwork.info/globalcapitalism_sept2020?utm_campaign=gcleu_sep_2020_promo&utm_medium=email&utm_source=democracyatwork–Topics:The failures mount:

The waning integrity, inspiration, and vision of both branches of the Democratic/Republican duopoly needs positivity to maintain power in turpitude. Those attempting to maintain principles of a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic would prefer reality to Show;
History presuming standards of Gone With The Wind isn’t the reality for the majority of white women—-https://www.blackagendareport.com/white-women-were-avid-slaveowners–Jones-Rogers puts the matter plainly. White slave-owning women were ubiquitous. Not only did they profit from, and passionately defend, slavery, but the institution “was their freedom.” White women were more likely to inherit enslaved people than land. Their wealth brought them suitors and gave them bargaining power in their marriages. If their husbands proved unsatisfactory slave owners in their eyes, the women might petition for the right to manage their “property” themselves, which they did, with imaginative sadism.How have so many historians gotten it so wrong?———–end of bar info–The majority of white women did not own slaves, is the perspective of one person. Surely if a snapshot of a region in a particular time was taken, white-female-slave-ownership would be found. Shame on those women and men who supported the extreme of capitalism, against which many modern-day people struggle, but which system of capitalism is strenuously upheld by people of all physiognomies interested in profiteering. This is an interesting topic of conversation, and deserves to be continued.This is another facet of slavery—-https://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/africa/features/storyofafrica/9chapter1.shtml–The term slave has its origins in the word slav. The slavs, who inhabited a large part of Eastern Europe, were taken as slaves by the Muslims of Spain during the ninth century AD.
Slavery can broadly be described as the ownership, buying and selling of human beings for the purpose of forced and unpaid labour. It is an ancient practice, mentioned in both the Bible and the Koran.–end of bbc info—The topic of slavery that built the USA is crucial and not taught in our system of education. In fact the history of nobody is taught with integrity in our system of education. To be informed is the first step.Explicit answers during any debate about the perspective of political candidates of exploitation of the public that rises to the level of serfdom is relevant in the USA of 2020. Explanations of any reason this question would not be relevant would be of interest.Reportedly 40% of the registered voters in the USA in 2016 didn’t cast a vote. This means that without drawing from occupied voters of either of the Democratic or Republican political Parties, 3rd-Party Presidential candidate Howie Hawkins can win the vote in 2020. Considering the state of our elections that are similar to those of the Former USSR, this is good news.——https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbnY9wTMFiQ——-Howie Hawkins 2020 Campaign Ad: Bernie was Cheated TWICEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZMtBgFSlf0—————Ask Howie & Angela #24 — Rachel Maddow says Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker are Republican opps? Well, in 2016 Jill Stein was castigated by cable channel MSM as Russian opps, so its getting milder in bigotry….perhaps.
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.

And many of the most non-Establishment voters are in the Green Party.
**************************************As a Green Party registered voter routinely, one re-registers every 4 years into the Democratic Party to be able to cast a vote in the Democratic Primary for Bernie Sanders. 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
—end of debates info—The Commission on Presidential Debates, replacing the League of Women Voters, controls who can debate and on which topics. They call this educating the public, others may see this as brainwashing. The CPD would profit by hearing from We The People, as to concerns about censorship. The censorship seems to have become so blatant, that petitions to the CPD have reached into the hundreds of thousands.

Brown* Deceased© COPYRIGHT 2020 THE COMMI—end of debates so-called leadership—-This also filters out any other than Democratic Establishment and Republican Establishment views. 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
