BARBARA G. ELLIS—Sanders’ speeches almost always emphasize single-payer’s—high quality, low cost. That “constant” indicates it is perhaps the issue is worth every drop of energy he has. Indeed, he may be at the crossroads of his life in deciding whether to battle the DNC again on another presidential run or to spend his remaining years ensuring single-payer coverage—Medicare-for-All—is available to every American from the first breath to the last.

Think!

^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS.

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...

now it's a matter of survival!

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.

  1. By now, I’m pretty sure that our more fortunate have little or no grasp of this country’s poverty crisis. Since the Clinton administration, US media virtually disappeared the issue, or redefined “the poor” as no one worse off than minimum wage workers. This shows a puzzling (and false) faith in the “success” of our deregulated capitalism.

    I’ve often seen signs reading, “Health care is a human right.” This is correct. It is also irrelevant in the US. Human rights were codified in the UN’s UDHR. This international human rights agreement lists the most fundamental human rights as food, shelter, and medical care — regardless of economic status. Obviously, the US disagrees, as we ended basic welfare aid 20-some years ago. Americans don’t actually have human rights. All we have are civil rights to purchase (without discrimination) lawful products or services that we are personally able to afford. Human rights are those that apply to all, regardless of economic status.

    Legislators know that it would make no sense to implement universal health care (by any other name) in the US. Allowing anything more than emergency room services for our poor would be as pointless as trying to fill a sieve with water. Lack of adequate food and shelter (and the extreme stresses related to poverty) takes a very heavy toll on human health. In fact, the overall life expectancy of the US poor already fell below that of every developed nation. (This is what REAL class war looks like.) It’s possible that “single payer” actually refers to health care only for those who are currently employed, but if so, this needs to be clarified.

  2. To the author- Donna Brazille..a black..A black what? A black Female? A black Democrat? Were you intentionally being racist? Or maybe you were just being a white.
