I saw Jimmy's announcement, and it seemed to be amicable. I hope so anyways, I've been a TYT member for some time now.
Gotta get my progressive news somewhere, WaPo sure isn't providing it...
Jimmy Dore might provide a platform, but Cenk had to do the same for Jimmy. You pay it forward.

Jimmy Dore for President, or Gabbard-Dore Ticket! Oh yeah!

Bernie put out a pretty powerful ad here:

Something's got to change... Because something WILL eventually, and eventual change is usually not pleasant.

Bernie has to bail on the Democratic Party.  Our job is to learn that voting for the lesser of two evils has made the evils continually worse.  When the rare populist rises up in the Democratic Party, they are cheated by the party core, the beneficiaries of the corporate donors.  The Democrats who run on platitudes and show no honest effort to help their constituencies are the rule in the party.  So, the question is, when Bernie gets cheated again, will he leave the party?  Both major parties are corrupt to their cores.  Both are corrupted by 99+% by the same military, industrial, security state, media, interests, because the powers of each are the same few people, the ones with the controlling blocks of voting stocks in the international corporations who couldn't give a flying fuck about any particular country, much less its citizens.  When the votes finally go to a third party for the win, the two parties will likely unite and make it official that they've long been the same corrupt bastards.

Are you saying if he isn't elected to go third party?

Going to be hard to get a third party for the win since Democrats and Republicans control the debate selection: SEE! They really can agree on something!. That's why outliers have to run on those tickets. What's more, since U.S. electoral politics is "winner take all", there's no way a third party can win. Now that's systemic.

USA has 540 billionaires. I guess being taxed more would interfere with the race to a trillion.

We need a few things. 

 

A public platform where The People can get together and talk about what we really want - AmeriTopia?? EuroTopia? EurAsiaTopia............

Then we just need to do an end-run around the established bobble-heads and reach out to the similar forums which need to start up in other countries. 

I've found that once The People (of anywhere) start talking and comparing notes it turns out we're not so different after all. We all like to eat, we all like good health, we all like to help when we can, a good nap in the afternoon, ..........you get the idea. There is no shortage of the things which really matter - except maybe compassion, understanding, patience, tolerance, the courage to make a change.............

I wonder what problem Bezos really has with Russia. Why does he want to push this narrative?

Let's postulate some possible motives. I might start with seeing how much of his business profits from such a state of affairs as he seems to want to foster.

He sells a lot of shit to a lot of government agencies, and contractors. Contractors who build weapons systems.

He's building his own rockets, but his interest seems to be more in moving stuff rather than space exploration as Musk is pursuing. Who knows what his deeper motives might be.

But do we have proof of his motives? The fact that he doesn't want us to know what his deeper motives are, and is willing to buy the press in order to keep them hidden is pretty concerning.

He currently has cloud contracts with the see eye eh for $600 million and sits on a Pentagon board.  Owning the newspaper of record in the nations capital, which he bought with his pocket change couldn't possibly be any conflict of interest.  Here's the followup to that video that wasn't posted yet when I put it up here:
