This is an excerpt of an interview that we recently conducted with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and best-selling author Chris Hedges. Chris discusses Bernie Sanders' decision to run as a democratic candidate and not an independent despite 2016 DNC corruption. In addition, he examines the Sanders' campaign failure and whether it should be attributed to internal or external factors.

America’s Final Descent Into a Failed State

Agelbert COMMENT: While Umair Haque is correct to point out the danger to American Democracy in the following article, I am convinced he has confused religion with idolatry. What he should have said is, FALSE religion, not disdainfully grouped "religion" (i.e. Christianity) with violence, fanaticism, hate, and cruelty. True Christianity is TOTALLY AGAINST violence, fanaticism, hate, and cruelty. If you have any doubt of that, just read Galatians 5:13-26. Paul makes it crystal clear that the above are works of the flesh, abd those who DO THEM WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD. After that he lists the fruits of the Holy Spirit, none of which can be remotely considered deleterious to the workings of a democratic society. In fact, those who WALK in the 🕊️ Spirit IMPROVE social cohesion and harmony through benevolent compassion (i.e. biblical love) for their neighbors. So, while I understand and agree with Umair's legitimate concerns, his blindness to the good that genuine Christians represent to our society shows he thinks we can all just figure this out without God. THAT is the blind spot on the Left that just drives more good people who worship God into the arms of the evil, lying, hypocritical bastards in the NAZI loving Right. 🤦‍♂️

America’s Final Descent Into a Failed State

A Radicalized 🐘 GOP is Committed to Destroying American Democracy. Will It Succeed
umair haque
May 23, 2021

By now, the contours of what look like a strategy are emerging. A strategy to take revenge on American democracy — this time, successfully. The five elements of this strategy — it’s the GOP’s, of course — go something like this.

One, put in place as party leaders those who’ve basically sworn allegiance to Trump, his movement, and his aims, which seem to be the violent overthrow of American democracy. Two, have them propound the Big Lie that the election was stolen. Three, at the state level, restrict voting rights as severely as possible. Four, elevate a new generation of fanatics and radicals — who openly bask in violence, like Marjorie Taylor Greene — to prominence. And five, of course, block any attempt to investigate the coup on Jan 6th.

All of that adds up to a nightmare scenario, come the next election. This fivefold strategy gives the GOP options. Options of the kind it shouldn’t have. To overthrow American democracy in any number of ways.

Let’s consider a few.

One: the Republicans take the house, and refuse to certify the President, if he or she’s a Democrat. What happens then? Constitutional crisis — of the most severe kind. It ends up at the Supreme Court — which, of course, leans heavily, heavily Republican.

Two: the Republicans lose the election — and attempt another coup. Only this time, they’re successful — remember, last time, America got lucky, and it was a minor miracle political leaders weren’t assassinated, which was the explicit goal of the coup. But this time, Republicans do manage to block vote certification through outright violence. What happens then? Chaos does. The GOP claims they’re the “true” winners — and America’s left in a twilight zone.

Three: the many, many ways the Republicans are attacking voting at the state level pay off. Through a combination of gerrymandering, sympathetic officials who are fanatics, restrictions, and “fraudits,” the Republicans manage to swing the election their way — by simply hacking away at the most basic mechanisms of democracy.

I could go on, but the point is this. Trump may seem “gone” — for now — but American democracy is in grave danger. It may be in more danger now than during the Trump years, in fact.       Why is that?

Because what all the above means is that the GOP has radicalized. They have made three significant choices, in the last few months, as an institution, as a set of people, as a social group. One, they have doubled down on the idea that if democracy doesn’t serve their ascendance to power, then it’s OK to do away with democracy. Two, they’ve doubled down on the idea that violence is a perfectly acceptable means to take power. Three, they’ve decided that the next election will be one where democracy itself is something to attack and beat — not the opponent, really — in whatever way is necessary to finally take power.

They’ve made those three choices in the service of a fourth. They’ve decided that the aim of taking in power is to force society to drink a weird cocktail of all the different flavours of fascism: the creation of a fanatical, religious, regressive ethno-state, where women and minorities and anyone different is violently repressed, while old hierarchies of race and money and pedigree are what define a person’s level of humanity. In short, the Republicans want America to be like Russia, politically, Iran, socially, and North Korea, culturally — not just a failed state, but to combine the worst aspects of all the kinds of failed states.

Those four choices are incredibly significant. For a very good reason. It didn’t have to be this way. The GOP could have backed down, instead of doubling down, on violence, fanaticism, religion, hate, and cruelty. The GOP could have walked bath to a path of relative sanity instead of tumbling further down the abyss of fascism. Each of the four decisions above — authoritarianism, violence, lies, and hate — are choices.

What’s guiding those choices? Driving them is a better word. The GOP chose to double down instead of back down for a very good reason, too. One that, more often than not, is the prime mover of politics. Because its base wanted it.

The GOP made the four choices above because it’s base was angrily crying out for authoritarianism over democracy, violence over consent, intimidation over comity, lies over truth, and hate over common decency.

It could have resisted, sure — but it would have been risking its own political future as a party. And so it radicalised, at the bidding of an already radicalised Trumpist base.

How radicalised is the Trumpist base? You should know the statistics by now, because they’re truly chilling. 70% of Republicans believe the election was stolen. A majority agree with the idea that “force may be necessary to save the American way of life.”

Where does all this leave America? Walking a tightrope, teetering in the wind. Below lies the abyss of fascism. And one tiny, minor misstep — and all is lost. This is made all the more dangerous, of course, by the false sense of security liberals are feeling now that Biden is in power.

Is this America’s final descent into a failed state? I ask that for a very simple reason. If you think carefully about the dynamics, an inevitable conclusion emerges. If the Republicans are successful at overthrowing American democracy, there won’t be a next time. That’s it, game over. For a very, very long — possibly for good.

And make no mistake — “overthrowing American democracy” is no hyperbole. What else do you call it when a party is systemically paring away voting rights, refusing to condemn and even investigate a violent coup attempt, and propounding a Big Lie, with no basis, that disregards the outcome of a democratic election?

America now faces the prospect of a final meltdown. What do I mean by that? Think of historic moments of social implosion — like the Irani Revolution, or the end of the Soviet Union, or the accession of dictators in countries from Iraq to North Korea.

What a final meltdown means is just such a moment — a turning point at which democracy is shattered, autocracy sets in, and a generation or more finds out the hard way what’s it like to live without freedom, under an iron fist and a boot.

So what I mean by “American democracy faces a final meltdown” is something like this. When Trump was President, fascism had risen to power. But it hadn’t fully seized power yet — corroding every value, capturing every institution. There was a way back — and America got very, very lucky. The coup failed — partly thanks to a handful of brave officers, partly out of sheer dumb luck. Biden became President precisely because the coup — whose purpose was to vote certification — failed. But if it had succeeded — where would America be today? Nobody can say — but Trump would surely have tried to annul the election and probably declared martial law. Last time wasn’t a final meltdown — America got lucky.

This time is different. The GOP wants revenge. It is thinking through the seizure of power — not in a temporary, fleeting way, but in a lasting, permanent one. It is very obviously planning to take power by force if necessary, subvert any remaining semblance of democracy — and make that transformation into authoritarianism more or less permanent. That’s it’s explicit goal — and the vast, vast majority of its base wants that from it.

The GOP wants America to experience something like an Irani Revolution or a Soviet collapse or a Gaddafi-like ascendance of authoritarianism — not some time in the distant future, but in the next few years, in this election cycle. That is why it’s strategy is now so obvious and explicit — elevate the fanatics, purge the moderates, pledge allegiance to Trump, and if we take the House, well, then we block election certification, and if that fails, we resort to violence all over again. This is our country! We’re the real Americans!

If you’ve lived all this before, or studied it — how societies experience a final collapse into authoritarianism — you’re shuddering right about now, looking at America. This is exactly how it happens. A nation gets lucky — and a coup attempt fails. But that only hardens the commitment of the radicalised base — and the fanatical side — to make it succeed next time, while the silent majority rests on their laurels. To plan carefully, so that the seizure of power doesn’t fail again. To put all the mechanisms in place so that when the time is right — bang!! — the plan goes off without a hitch, and democracy is left a smoking, wrecked ruin.

It couldn’t be more obvious what the GOP wants: the collapse of American democracy. I guess that only leaves one question: why don’t sane Americans see it yet?

MAGA fascist fever is breaking 🤔
« Reply #1142 on: June 08, 2021, 01:38:47 pm »


By Robert S. Becker -June 1, 2021

Seven reasons the MAGA fascist fever is breaking – along with Trump’s martyrdom cult

Clearly, the runt of underdogs, Trump will never concede, never apologize, and never learn.


SNIPPETS:


2) All polling, and this unrelenting circular party firing squad, make Trump a long-shot national candidate. Descending approval numbers track his absent political agenda. Trump epitomizes the Party of No – no to pandemic, no to the lawful election result, no to angry critics, and no to genuine opposition to the Biden presidency. Is Trump “for” anything but vanity? Not even provocative sound bites or entertaining put-downs surface. Where is he stronger now than in October? ... ...

4) What adviser, rational Trumper, or party fat cats think that a party branded as undemocratic, against elections and prone to violent uprisings has found the road to power? Contradictions, anyone? Instead of burying its awful, memorable last months, Republicans keep getting bad press for conspiracy with the riotous, Jan. 6 national calamity. Rejecting a bipartisan Commission (with more GOP control than a certain House investigation) exposed both complicity and dread of full exposure. Talk about handing over grenades to the opposition! Nothing threatens rightwing House members more than loyalty to Trump and to the absurd, “rigged, stolen” Big Election Lie. Criminality by rioters is now compounded by unholy Senate Republican collusion to bury lawless chaos. Keep those public votes coming, Democrats.

5) Trump’s only public role is now dividing his own electorate, with misguided pot-shots at queasy Republicans bemoaning steady party woes. Typically dumb Trumpism is railing against those, like Cheney, Romney, and Ryan, with superior reach to independents. Every Trump target holds higher moral ground, making the menace of Mar-a-lago look petty, reactive and deranged. By dividing an increasingly fragile coalition (billionaires, fundamentalists and disadvantaged), Trump fulfills Jennifer Rubin resume summary for “evil lunacy.” No phrase better exposes how Trump hammers away at a sinking ship while sabotaging the lifeboats.

Why the World is Going Insane

How to Think About the Next Decade

SNIPPET:

It strikes me these days, as it probably strikes you, that the world has gone a little crazy, has lost its bearings. It struck me recently, along those lines, that “insane” is, funnily, a near perfect acronym for the links in the causal chain, the vicious cycle, that country after country is falling prey to. That we as a world are falling prey to. The one leading us into a dark age of extremists, authoritarians, kleptocrats, and throngs cheering it all along.

So. Here we go.

IN stands for inequality. It’s the prime mover of today’s problems. Inequality within countries has skyrocketed — and that’s in every country around the globe, more or less, even well-managed ones, like Canada and Sweden. As inequality jumps, social distance grows. Rich and poor share little in common — not schools, roads, hospitals, and so on — and so a society begins to corrode from within — it loses trust. Politics grow polarized. The civic sphere corrodes. Decent jobs turn into minimum wage gigs, and becoming a CEO turns into a lottery ticket for a fortune that will last generations. Any sense of higher, enduring values decays, degenerates, and everything becomes about money, money, money. As we will see, what is lost when inequality grows is dignity, stability, opportunity, gentleness — a sense, in the end, that a society is a worthy, healthy, vibrant place.

'That’s A Load Of Crap' — Enviros Fed Up With  🎩 Big Business Doublespeak On Reconciliation Package

Big Business 😈 is trying to block the passage of Democrats' $3.5 trillion climate and social spending legislation and environmentalists are pissed , Politico reports.

"Was it all bullshit?" Lori Lodes, executive director of Climate Power, rhetorically asked of previous statements by corporations that claim to support climate action but remain members of trade groups lobbying to tank the package that would be passed through the Senate using the procedure known as budget reconciliation.

“There’s one train," she added, "and you’re either getting on it or we will have a really long, long memory.” Groups like the Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable are deploying the full weight of their considerable lobbying apparatuses against the bill, which also includes investments in health care, child care, and racial equity in addition to climate change.

Some   companies have tried to stake a middle ground, saying they support climate action , while remaining part of groups lobbying to tank the biggest opportunity to meaningfully address the climate crisis in at least a decade over complaints about cost and process. “That’s a load of crap and I think they know it," Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) retorted. Those companies have been warned, privately, they risk losing their place in business climate coalitions ahead of COP26 in November if they fail to formally distance themselves from the lobbying groups working to undermine climate action.

Environmental groups have also refused to entertain the idea of cutting loose other social provisions of the bill to appease conservative Democrats. “We’re pushing for the full Build Back Better package,” Tiernan Sittenfeld, senior vice president of the League of Conservation Voters, told Politico. “We’re not negotiating with ourselves.” (Politico)

😈 Leonard Francis, aka Fat Leonard, the man behind the Largest Scandal of the Century

SNIPPET:

In FAT LEONARD, Host Tom Wright takes a deep dive into Leonard Francis’ mafia-like organization inside the Navy, corrupting even the top officer at the famed Navy Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS) as it started receiving tips about his shady dealings. Details will be divulged around Francis’ videotaping of indiscretions with Navy officers, including the 7th Fleet head of intelligence, creating one of the U.S. military’s worst-ever national security failures. Further, listeners will learn how Francis’ scam was tolerated because he was a trusted intermediary of the Navy, paying bribes on their behalf to gain U.S. access to ports and protecting warships from terrorists. Additionally, Francis will explain the part he played in covert missions against Al Qaeda, using his own warship Braveheart to support Marines, with U.S. diplomatic cover.

‘Aided and abetted’: Newly unsealed records show state feared its own culpability in EB-5 fraud

SNIPPET:

The newly unsealed documents shed new light on the state’s role in regulating — or failing to regulate — development projects financed through the federal EB-5 investor visa program, which confers permanent residency on noncitizens who invest at least $500,000 in certain job-creating ventures.
The documents show that the  Shumlin administration was aware in the spring of 2015 that the 😈 Northeast Kingdom developers were engaging in fraud — a full year before state and federal officials pulled the plug on the projects — imperiling the immigration status of those who invested in the developments. The records also outline the lengths to which state officials went in concealing the fraud from the public and the press.


One of the newly unsealed documents, published April 13, 2015, describes in explicit detail how state regulators viewed the Northeast Kingdom developments at the time. The internal and confidential document, penned by an unnamed employee of the state Department of Financial Regulation, reads, “Every project appears to be involved in an array of deceptive practices. Every single additional penny of investor money that moves through the projects will be lost for good. New investors most certainly will not be issued visas as the SEC will act long before the two year job creation period ends.”

Four months later, according to one newly released document, a top Department of Financial Regulation official briefed Shumlin, then-Attorney General Bill Sorrell and others on the evidence the department had collected implicating the developers. The official, then-Deputy Financial Regulation Commissioner Mike Pieciak, included in his August 14, 2015, slide presentation a spaghetti map of bank transactions the developers used to perpetuate the fraud.

The final slide, a spreadsheet titled “Immigration Impact to Investors,” listed a series of projects for which “Immigration Status was Likely to be Negated.” In all, the immigration status of 364 investors, or 42% of the total, were in jeopardy. State regulators made clear that 83 investors in a Burke Mountain Resort hotel, 134 in the Stateside condos at Jay Peak and 147 at a biotech venture in Newport would not be eligible for visas because of the fraud.

The littoral combat ship Pre-Commissioning Unit (PCU) Coronado (LCS 4) is rolled-out at the Austal USA assembly bay on January 9, 2011. (Photo: U.S. Navy)

US Navy Is Both Decommissioning And Building More Of This Failed Ship 

SNIPPETS:

Depite the monumental failure of the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) platform – which naval experts have called “A Beautiful Disaster” – the US Navy is constructing 10 more LCS ships right now and have an additional one of these failed platform on order.

Because of the many failures in the program the USS Freedom has served mostly as a test and training ship. According to the US Navy the decommissioning of LCS 1 “supports department-wide business process reform initiatives to free up time, resources, and manpower in support of increased lethality” but most experts cite the true problems as huge cost overruns, mechanical problems, and changing geopolitical trends made this relatively new ship obsolete. ...  ...

What is most shocking about this story is not the utter failure of the LCS platform, nor it’s immense costs. Most shocking is the fact the Navy is still building more. In 2019 the U.S. Navy announced it awarded contracts for another three Littoral Combat Ships, bringing the total number of vessels ordered so far to over 30. 🐽 Austal eceived two of the awards while 🐷 Lockheed Martin received the third.

Leaked docs reveal 🦖 fossil fuel-soaked nations lobbying to 😈 sabotage climate action

“They are using every opportunity to protect their corporate interests and continue with business as usual while the planet burns.”

SNIPPETS:

Just ahead of a key United Nations climate summit, a major leak of documents reveals that some fossil fuel-producing nations are encouraging authors of an upcoming U.N. report to omit an assessment that the world must transition away from oil, gas, and coal to tackle the planetary emergency.

“This is an insight into how a small group of coal, oil, and meat producing countries continue to put the profits of a few polluting industries before science and our planet’s future,” Greenpeace International executive director Jennifer Morgan said in a statement Thursday.

“Rather than phasing out fossil fuels and unsustainable meat production,” she said, “they are using every opportunity to protect their corporate interests and continue with business as usual while the planet burns.”

The comments in question, including from Brazil, Saudi Arabia, and Australia as well as the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), were in response to a draft report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Working Group 3. ...  ...

The documents show that a small group of nations opposed to ambition action is instead pushing carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) technologies—both of which critics say are dangerous false solutions pushed by industries looking for ways to continue their profit-making. From Unearthed:
Quote
Australia; Saudi Arabia; Iran, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC); and Japan all make variations of this argument, despite the fact that, according to the Global CCS Institute, there is currently only one power station in operation in the world that successfully captures some of its carbon emissions.
