"Last year around 2,000 of our friends and comrades joined us as we marched on the Pentagon in Arlington, VA, where we called for a revival of a mass antiwar / anti-imperialism movement, attention on the toll war takes on women across the globe, the environmental impacts of war, and much much more.

In 2019, we're fighting for the very same things and we're taking our march to the White House—where we won't be ignored!

We invite you to Rage Against the War Machine with us on Friday, October 11th.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention and we're committed to educating everyone about the atrocities of the War Machine."

To dismantle The Empire will mean to:
End all of the wars.
Shut down all of the overseas military bases.
Bring all of the troops home.

https://marchonpentagon.com/

Join them Oct 11th at St Stephens Church 1525 Newton Street NW Washington DC

Alicia Garza attacks Jill Stein at Behest of the Working Families Party and the Non-Profit Industrial Complex

https://www.blackagendareport.com/alicia-garza-attacks-jill-stein-behest-working-families-party-and-non-profit-industrial-complex

Servile to corporate power, Garza repeated the racist “Bernie Bro” trope to vilify the most multiracial base of the Democratic Party.

“Non-profits function as both an economic engine for the rich and a tool of surveillance of the poor.”

The Black uprising otherwise known as Black Lives Matter struck fear in the heart of America’s racist state. That fear materialized into a two-pronged war to neutralize the movement’s growth and impact. Black rebellions in Ferguson and other cities across the country were first met with a militarized police occupation and an ongoing FBI operation to subvert “Black Identity Extremism.” State repression was reinforced by an ideological war waged from the board rooms of the corporate media. Black rage was criminalized while respectability politics was rewarded with non-profit careers. The movement was swept off the streets and into the halls of the non-profit industrial complex.

According to the report, in 2015, the United States only recycled 9% of its plastic waste, and, since then, that figure has dropped even lower. And fewer than 1% of the tens of billions of plastic bags used in the U.S. each year are recycled.

For more, Democracy Now! is joined by Sharon Lerner, health and environment reporter for The Intercept, reporting fellow at Type Investigations. Her series, “The Teflon Toxin,” was a finalist for a National Magazine Award.

"Democracy Now! speaks to journalist Sharon Lerner about how corporations in the United States are refusing to turn to more sustainable materials, with most of the country’s plastic waste ending up in landfills or scattered around the world. According to her investigation, in 2015, the United States only recycled 9% of its plastic waste, and since then, that figure has dropped even lower. Lerner is a health and environment reporter at The Intercept and a reporting fellow at Type Investigations. Her series “The Teflon Toxin” was a finalist for a National Magazine Award."

Youtube is known to have a particular dislike for channels that are anti-war, anti-imperialist and that talk about Palestinian issues. This is widely known by those who have channels that focus on these issues and it is not uncommon for Youtube to unsubscribe people from these channels without them realising. This has happened to me a few times where I was sure I was subscribed to a channel and realised I hadn't seen a video from them for a few weeks. I would go check and I had been unsubscribed. That happened to me in relation to the Grayzone. Jimmy Dore which is a much greater channel than mine regularly has mass unsubscribings. It would seem for the first time Youtube may have mass unsubscribed 20 people in one day from my channel which was close to approaching 900. This sudden drop happened after my video on Shuhada St Hebron. Youtube often restricts access to videos I do on Palestinian issues and it suppresses other videos depending on the algorithms. But in this case I think I can say with some certainty that this had something the topic of Shuhada St. Anyway, I would like to request that you please check in every so often if you have not received a video from Faint Signals from Vega for over a week or two. I would at least post once a week I hope. If this happens again I may have to start a mailing list. If anyone has any suggestions as to what kind of mailing list would suffice and is reliable, let me know. Thanks for your support. Cheers.

Impulsive blustery Trump implies there might be a reason why he would use nuclear weapons on Iran. He tells the press the nuclear arsenal now 'in tippy-top shape.’ When asked about responding to Iran: 'We should all pray we don't have to use them'. One has to ask if Trump would use a limited nuclear weapon on Iran as an experiment since Iran could not respond in kind. So is Trump hastening this lead up to attacking them in the hopes he can do so before Iran has nuclear capabilities? It's all speculation, but it's something to consider.

Is Ayn Rand's Altruism-hating Philosophy pervasive beyond conservative politics?
#libertarianism #aynrand #neoliberalism

Ayn Rand (1905–1982) was a Russian-American writer. Rand wrote two best-selling novels, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. She hated the poor, hated altruism, said compassion and altruism was a weakness, and Rand is oft admired by many politicians on the right including Paul Ryan. She developed a philosophical system she named Objectivism.

I share a segment by Caleb Maupin who talks about how Ayn Rand and Liberatarianism in some ways she fascistic overtones. I share my thoughts about this and expand the conversation to the wider political realm.

'Trish here: Tulsi Gabbard's campaign recently released a video ( here https://twitter.com/TulsiGabbard/status/1162715702018674694 ) where she states that political correctness is one of the factors that is threatening freedom of speech and "American Values". I talk about this briefly and broaden the conversation to political correctness in general. I talk about the exploitation of identity politics by Democratic Party and how some on the left is promoting some problematic positions in relation to ID Pol. I share some personal experiences.

Jeffrey Epstein is dead. Bypass Mainstream Media. Check out well-researched Mintpress News report.

MintPress News' Whitney Webb articles: 1st of 3 well researched reports. 4th report coming soon:

"Hidden in Plain Sight: The Shocking Origins of the Jeffrey Epstein Case." "Epstein is only the latest incarnation of a much older, more extensive and sophisticated operation that offers a frightening window into how deeply tied the U.S. government is to the modern-day equivalents of organized crime."
https://www.mintpressnews.com/shocking-origins-jeffrey-epstein-blackmail-roy-cohn/260621/

"Government by Blackmail: Jeffrey Epstein, Trump’s Mentor and the Dark Secrets of the Reagan Era" "Appalling for both the villainous abuse of children itself and the chilling implications of government by blackmail, this tangled web of unsavory alliances casts a lurid light on the political history of the U.S. from the Prohibition Era right up through the Age of Trump."
https://www.mintpressnews.com/blackmail-jeffrey-epstein-trump-mentor-reagan-era/260760/

"Mega Group, Maxwells and Mossad: The Spy Story at the Heart of the Jeffrey Epstein Scandal" "The picture painted by the evidence is not a direct Epstein tie to a single intelligence agency but a web linking key members of the Mega Group, politicians, and officials in both the U.S. and Israel, and an organized-crime network with deep business and intelligence ties in both nations."

Newstart. The appalling amount of money that unemployed people are expected to live on in Australia today is not only abusive and unliveable, but it is completely unnecesssary when we understand what our sovereign economy is capable of. Our government tells us economic lies like #UnfundedEmpathy and hopes that we will not look into the operational reality of our sovereign economy *(MMT). Please watch this by Getup.org and Dr. Stephanie Kelton who unpicks the dangerous myths about our economy. Once we understand this, we will never be able to let politicians tell us these economic lies again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZ8ejYqVPGU

"The DNC brought a civil case against WikiLeaks, Julian Assange and a couple of other not so notables, like Trump and Russia. The judge ruled, on the basis of the Pentagon Papers precedent, that what WikiLeaks had published was in the public interest, and dismissed the civil case that the DNC had brought. The DNC seems to be a deeply corrupt organisation, as proved by the emails that WikiLeaks published."

"Shipton noted the pernicious role played by the corporate press: “The centre of gravity, to use a Clausewitzian term, of knowledge, is the mass media. They control what we think and how we relate to events, so our first attack is upon the mass media, through alternative media, blogs, forums and a little bit of Twitter and none of Facebook.”" John Shipton (Julian Assange's father)

I've heard fearmonging and what sound like Islamophobic comments from some that if Palestinian refugees return to their homeland (one state solution) they will be the majority and that they will institute Sharia Law. That is a couple of the unfortunate arguments I've heard recently against the one state solution.

"No excuse for progressives who voted for anti-BDS resolution today, because their own *Palestinian* colleague Rashida Tlaib clearly explained to them what this meant to her as a refugee of this colonization—how BDS is their most cherished path to freedom & justice. Just disrespectful" Mike Prysner co-producer The Empire Files

"Tulsi Gabbard, Ro Khanna & Ayanna Pressley all just voted for AIPAC’s resolution to condemn BDS. It’s not progressive to embolden Trump’s attacks & legitimize an apartheid state committing an ongoing massacre." Abby Martin
