Agelbert NOTE: The following is textbook disinformation. The Venezuelan Navy Patrol Boat had hailed the Cruise ship for being unauthorized in those waters. The Cruise ship, nearly EMPTY of passengers, pretended to apologize. When the Venezuelan Patrol boat ordered the Cruise ship, which has a reinforced hull for dealing with icebergs, to go to a nearby port, said Cruise ship proceeded to RAM AND SINK the Venezuelan Patrol Boat. Then, to add insult to injury, the Cruise ship just left! The Venezuelan sailors were rescued by other Venezuelans that had been alerted to their plight.

All in service to the dictum, "Never let a crisis go to waste." More on how the neocons let loose on leftist governments are using the pandemic to wage war for capitalist plunder.

News Summary for Holy Week 2020: We-the-people are being coronavirus crucified so that Trump and his friends in the American Fascist Oligarchy (in BOTH the Republican and "Democratic" Parties) can continue to do what they so enjoy deliberately doing.

I know, you are asking yourself what, besides the coronavirus pandemic, is new about this news about the modus operandi of the Oligarchs 'R' US. Me too. I just figured Holy Week has put a kind of appropriate accent on the behavior of The American high tech version of the Roman Empire. Have a nice day.

Brazilian President Bolsonaro Is Out Of Power :o, Replaced By General Netto
By Emir Sader, Brazil Wire. Bolsonaro made threats he couldn’t carry out about replacing the Health Minister and reopening commerce. Now he is isolated and everyone has turned on him, as General Villas Boas admits. He’s been reduced to impotence. It remains to be seen how he and his children will react. We now have a kind of prime minister in General Braga Netto, who has taken on the role of coordinator of all ministries and, especially, health policy, to prevent Bolsonaro from committing any more acts of madness. The next stage is the government armoring itself to prevent the PT from winning the 2022 presidential elections.  -more-

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH Jamarl Thomas ✨ that we must abandon Sanders for the simple reason that he will urge people to vote for Biden.

Readers, save this list of the craven corrupt similarities of Trump with Biden to repeat them over and over to people that do not know the score with Biden: 👀

📢 😈 Biden and 🦀 Trump are BIRDS OF THE EXACT SAME NEOLIBERAL FASCIST FEATHER:

Corporate COVID-19 welfare and PEANUTS for we-the-people
Subsidies for Fossil Fuel Industry POLLUTERS
FRACKING support
SNAP funds REDUCTION
New "chained" CPI (i.e gamed formula to UNDERCOUNT INFLATION) to ROB workers and retired on pensions through COLA reductions 🤬
PROTECTION of Credit Card Corporation USURY LEVEL HIGH INTEREST RATES
DEFUNDING SOCIAL SECURITY
People KILLING SANCTIONS on IRAN
Gigantic PENTAGON BUDGET SWAG
Endless foreign wars for MIC SWAG
PROTECTING Big Pharma Drug Price Gouging
PROTECTING PREDATORY Payday Lender usury level rates
RELAXING Government BANKSTER Controlling Regulations
DEFANGING the SEC so 😈 Wall Street can run wild with insider trading, front running, etc. with IMPUNITY 👉CHECK
NO return to 1933-2000 Glass-Steagall to stop the Bank irresponsible insovency causing derivatives speculation we-the-people had to BAILOUT in 2008 👉CHECK
NO return to 1933-1982 when Corporate Stock BUYBACKS to game the stock price up WERE ILLEGAL 👉CHECK
NO INCREASE IN MINIMUM WAGE 👉CHECK 😠
DEFENSE of Corporate Health Insurance people bankrupting premiums and ZERO support for Medicare-4-ALL 👉CHECK
ZERO support for a GREEN NEW DEAL 👉CHECK 🥵

I can go ON, and ON and ON. Biden is a 🐘 DINO, like most 🐘 "Democrats". Trump is a FAKE "populist". It's the same God Damned THING!

Please do your own research into Biden's despicable oligarchy ass kissing record in the Senate. It is ALL THERE. Trump has simply been less subtle about his in-our-faces worship of the 1% profit over people and planet parasites, that is all. In actual policies, they are nearly identical.

For the "Democrats" (i.e. DINOs) who are already busy, busy, busy demonizing truth telling former Bernie supporters (calling us "Extremists" 🙄 who want to "see the planet burn rather than voting for Saint Joe Biden" 🥱) who are moving to the GREEN PARTY in order to herd us into voting for 🏴☠️ Biden: 🔊 Go ahead and pretend the Green Party "is irrelevant". Your Fascist Republican/"Democratic" profit over people and planet Duopoly worship is killing we-the-people. Have a nice day, you Planet Killing Extremists. 😡

The DINOS are the ones who want to see the world BURN, rather than saying goodbye to Corporate profit over people and planet CROOKS and moving to the GREEN PARTY.

Your choice is binary. Then we'll mark you down for Trump.
Any vote for Greens, Blues, reptilians, etc. is a vote for Trump.

See Stein, J. in 2016, and Nader, R. in 2000.

Sorry Bro, ethical behavior is NOT "binary". Stein, Nader, et al did the right thing. Yeah, Trump will win, probably in a landslide, but DON'T YOU DARE TELL ME that I am "supporting a Trump victory" by not voting for Biden or Trump. I didn't make this GOD DAMNED SYSTEM (and I'm NOT swearing), the "Democratic" Party FASCIST ENABLERS DID! As I said in 2016, Obama was the fascist warmup; Trump is the MAIN EVENT. You, an intelligent person, are going to sit there and tell me with a straight face that Biden isn't the FALL GUY for Trump, DELIBERATELY PUT THER BY THE DLC so Trump would win?

THAT'S WHAT HE IS, A FALL GUY! And if you want to "binary" your choice and vote for Biden, you will be very depressed this November.

Here's the deal, Bro. You are a very smart, but rather tubborn, fellow that thinks he has politics in the USA all figured out. Well, you, who normally sees things more clearly than I do in the political arena, are leaving out of your, normally rational calculus, a GIGANTIC IN-OUR-FACES CATASTROPHIC CLIMATE CHANGE PROBLEM. THAT IS NUMERO UNO, SURLY, not the fascist tyranny that we are ALREADY saddled with. You are DREAMING if you think Biden, in the highly unlikely event that he becomes POTUS, will prevent that. DON'T TELL ME YOU ARE NOT LEAVING THE CLIMATE CLUSTERFUCK OUT! YOU ARE BY TRYING TO HERD PEOPLE INTO VOTING FOR BIDEN.

Scoff all you want, Bro. Just read the following and then tell me to pound sand all you want. I've thought this through. Here's my rant on why Biden and Trump are BOTH nearly identical forms of NATIONAL SUICIDE: 

Biden's corporate friendly, people screwing track record is all there in the Senate. Trump can pretend he didn't actively help BUY politicians like Biden to do that, but it is a pretense, nothing more. However, Trump has the advantage that you cannot objectively and irrefutably "say" that Trump "specifically supported" all the SWAG GIVEAWAYS to the 1%, from legal tax loopholes to special bankruptcy favors to the money laundering fun and games the Congress aided and abetted, even though Trump was certainly part of the 1% crooks that DID "lobby" for all of that THEFT.

I'm sure Trump smiled broadly when then Senator Biden shut the door to student bankruptcy protection. Yeah, they were BOTH on EXACTLY THE SAME BANKSTER PLEASING PAGE, long before Biden became Obama's VP.

But, of course, what we have here is a contest of polished con artist liars, so both of them will claim they are "champions of the people" against the, uh, "DC swamp". They will shout until they are hoarse that they have "always defended the will of the American People"...

I was born in the dark, but it wasn't last night.

Remember that Trump gave most of his "political contributions" to the "Democratic" Party until Obama got there. The Clintons and Trumps were great pals and went to parties and weddings together. Maybe that is irrelevant to most casual observers, but Trump wasn't sending money to "Democrats" out of the goodness of his heart.

That said, the important thing for all of us who see a bit of a problem with the Fascist Tyranny in the USA goes WAY BEYOND the Dictatorship Cruelty and Despotism thing, as bad as THAT is.

It's the Catastrophic climate Change that BOTH Biden and Trump will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to address, except to, maybe, fund bunkers for the 1% where they can watch the rest of us go the way of all flesh (they might call it something like Save the "Job Creators" Act). That is not hyperbole. Most of the funds coming out of government now go to the 1%, so I would not put it past them to "legalize" another in-our-faces outrage.

These psychopaths really and honestly believe that they can beat this climate change thing with perception management (SEE; The Strength of the Will - a Fascist Fairy Tale those arrogant bastards believe in with all their might).

They just cannot wrap their greedy heads around the concept that humans cannot industrially defecate where they eat without eventually going extinct. We can expect no rational actions from them for the purpose of preserving the biosphere out of sine qua non human species survival necessity.
Quote

"For most of my adult life I’ve railed against “corporate capitalism”, “consumer capitalism” and “crony capitalism”. It took me a long time to see that the problem is not the adjective but the noun." -- George Monbiot

Quote
"... the bad freedoms to exploit those around us and extract huge profits without regard to the common good, including what is done to the ecosystem and democratic institutions. These bad freedoms see corporations monopolize technologies and scientific advances to make huge profits, even when, as with the pharmaceutical industry, a monopoly means lives of those who cannot pay exorbitant prices are put in jeopardy. The good freedoms—freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, freedom of meeting, freedom of association, freedom to choose one’s job—are eventually snuffed out by the primacy of the bad freedoms." -- Chris Hedges

Quote
The story of fossil fuel consumption growth is a story of technologies used, misused and moulded by the corporations that control them; of capitalist expansion, particularly after the second world war; and of government complicity -- Simon Pirani

Quote
"When we are swiftly shuttling ourselves down the path of irreversible climate cataclysm, the only unreasonable option is to double down on the status quo."

That ideological alignment between Biden and Trump is a death sentence for we-the-people in the USA, and possibly the entire human species. For that reason alone, no rational person can support either one or the Profit Over People and Planet Duopoly they serve.

I'm going to repost now some quotes I posted less than year after Trump came to power. Notice what has nauseatingly come to pass, despite scientists shouting from the rooftops that it is suicidal to continue 'business as usual' (a term near and dear to both the "Democrats" and the Republicans):

Quote
“Subsidizing fossil fuel companies in the face of rapid climate change is like spraying jet fuel on a burning home. To put out the fire, we must first stop making the problem worse,” Doukas continued. “Ignoring the problem just because fossil fuel industry mascots like Trump demand it is like agreeing to take the warning labels off of cigarettes because they offend Joe Camel. Our leaders must act now to stop burning our tax dollars and stop trashing the climate.”

Quote
"To say that Fossil Fuel Industry 🦕🦖 😈 disinformation isn’t the whole story is to knock down a straw man: the fact remains that it is a major--and perhaps the most important--part of the story."

Quote
"Amid the din of grinding gears, midnight tweets, intrigue and White House infighting comes the sound of old wheels rolling backward, of laws and protections being rescinded and redacted, of a rapid retreat away from any pretense of concern for the environment, the elderly and the vulnerable, and toward even taller profits for a select few. They’re coming for our friends, family and neighbors, and they’re coming for the loot too. They want your money, and will have it if they can get it." -- Truthout, William Rivers Pitt, Columnist and Editor

The above was predicted over three years ago. Today, April 10, 2020, we know it will only get worse, no matter which of the two Oligarchic TOOLS, Biden or Trump, wins the November 2020 election.

We either get off this dead end track by silent, total 100% rejection of our Profit over People and Planet MORON FASCISTS, or we are all toast.

Sure, if we break the back of the "Democratic" Party by moving massively to the Green Party, we may all die from Trump inaction on climate anyway after he wins in November in a landslide. But, moving massively to the Green Party is the only, not simply ethical, but also rational, choice we have before us at this time.

If we swallow the Bernie pro-Biden BULLSHIT and choose to be "lesser" evil quislings for the "Democratic" Party, we are going to die just as quickly from the Catastrophic Climate Change now arriving that neither Biden nor Trump will try, beyond lip service and perception management legerdemain, to mitigate.

You are supporting a Trump victory. And actively.

Your "justification™" for Stein, Nader et al gave us the Cheney-Bush Presidency, war in Iraq, "enhanced interrogation," tax breaks for the rich, a corrupted judiciary, foxes in every henhouse, monstrous deficits, the paranoia of Nixon, the ethics of Harding and the good sense of Herbert Hoover... to say nothing of setting  the template for the catastrophic Trump presidency. Which your logic also enabled. Congratulations.Take a bow.

And get yourself fitted for a red hat.

Which your logic also enabled. Congratulations.Take a bow.

    And get yourself fitted for a red hat.



    I disagree. It's grossly inaccurate to blame Stein, Nader or Sanders supporters for (s)election results the fascist favoring oligarchy rigged though a combination of gate keeper ballot choices, voter suppression, gamed voting machines and Supreme Court Criminality 👉 from making buying politicians "FREE SPEECH legal" in the 1980s to deciding "Bush beat Gore" in 2000, when they knew that was a bold faced fascist enabling LIE. Maybe it wouldn't have made any difference, it being that Gore was a Clintonite, but the fact is that Nader didn't have ZIP to do with the Supreme Court's FASCIST BUSH ENABLING CRIME.   

    That is certainly not Democracy. Anyone that thinks it is needs to have their head examined. But then, you and I used to go round and round at the Doomstead Diner every single time an election would come around with your misplaced faith in the "power" of voting in the USA.

    Fine, you keep believing that and keep saying people like me are "the cause" of the Fascist takeover in the USA. If that makes your day. do your thing. I respect your opinion, even if I think you are basically out in left field on this issue. Who knows, maybe you are right and I'm just a dumb assed Fundy Pseudo-Christian sleeper agent for Trump masquerading as a lefty and you have finally exposed my "hypocrisy".
    But, you know, to me, that sounds like .

    However, I won't waste anymore time arguing this with you. If you plan on buying me a red hat, I suggest you not waste your money, unless you want one for your hero Biden to wear.

    Mr. Fish's Catch of the Day: Donkey King

    I cede the floor to YOU, Surly, when you used to make sense:

    http://www.doomsteaddiner.net/forum/index.php/topic,6642.msg104661/topicseen.html#msg104661

    Well, that is because the real liberals were demonized and ostracized and marginalized and imprisoned through the clever pig man device of labeling them "anarchists" (and other groundless derogatory terms).


    We see that same technique alive and well today in the machinations of David Brock and other Hillbots' attacks on Sanders and supporters. But then how did we get here?

    I suggest we look first at the Democratic Leadership Council and the sudden lurch to the right, exemplified by class-traitor Bill Clinton who extolled the viability of Third Way politicians and as a DLC success story. Secure in power, the DLC sold off its former values and constituencies for parts, or more to the point, bundled campaign contributions.

    Rahm Emanuel was a noted bagman for the DLC. Democrats who adhere to the DLC's philosophy often call themselves "New Democrats." And they have never seen a campaign contribution they didn't like.

    And, as a coup de grace, you should know that the historical records of the DLC have been purchased by the Clinton Foundation.

    Remember Clinton's strategy of "triangulation?" The net result has been concession after concession to the opposition and promotion of a neoliberal economic agenda favorable to corporations and banksters, including those seeking to privatize public services, while alienating traditionally-allied voters and working-class people. And utter, complete sellout of ordinary citizens.

    Yeah, Rahmbo, I got yer "Third Way" right here.

    Yep. Triangulation was probably code speech for isolation and strangulation of the CFS reasonable and caring voice of we-the-people on behalf of the wishes of the oligarchic assholes driving this country and our species into an evolutionary dead end.

    Maybe they knew what they were doing by picking the Bald Eagle as the symbol of the USA...


    The Tardigrades will inherit the world from oligarchic human insane greed and stupidity.
