About the Author
 Paul Street’s latest book is They Rule: The 1% v. Democracy (Paradigm, 2014) 
PAUL STREET—For [PBS pundit] Rothenberg, the Clinton wing members are the “pragmatists,” the realistic adults who want “get things done” (one of the great neoliberal president Obama’s favorite phrases and claims). The Sanders folks are “ideologues,” a pejorative term meaning people who are mainly about ideology and who are carried away by their own flighty and doctrinal world view.

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.

One thought on “Giving the Game Away

  1. On “turning a phrase,” the Clinton wing “liberated the poor” from dependency on food and shelter, ending welfare aid as the US embraced “free trade,” losing a huge number of working class jobs. And yes, much of the media marketed to liberals continue to beat the drums of neoliberal ideology, as seen in their years of promoting middle class elitism (recently revised to “working class”) while ignoring our poverty crisis.

    The US has been on a long, downhill slide. The overall quality of life went from a rating of #1 when Reagan was first elected (far from perfect, but…) down to #48 by the time Obama was elected. We looked at the policies and programs implemented from FDR to Reagan, which took the country to its height of wealth and productivity, and decided to do the exact opposite. Now we’ve pursued the longest, most costly war in US history. We can’t rebuild this time because there’s no money left, and millions of our jobs are gone.

    And yes, Sen. Sanders became “pragmatic.” He had once claimed to support democratic socialism, which does include a legitimate welfare system. He used to speak out strongly about the poor, knowing that US poverty is a result of our deeply flawed capitalism. That doesn’t sell to today’s Democrats, so he dropped the issue by the time of his 2016 campaign.
