Fake News highlights and Bill’s World.

After Yesterday’s post over Jeff Bezos (Amazon), the richest man – behind those unknown elsewhere – too many fake news on the air today in Francia.

Among them, this pick. The 9/11 shooting back on the air to fill the vacuum.

Behind the vacuum is the idea that I’m being blinded after chaos around my life.

Posting Sanders or Bill de Blasio while being a strong supporter of Mr. Trump is, for those fake news – a sign chaos has taken on my life.

No more vision and sighting. Everything is in shambles and the entire community is so happy to hit the floor dance.

The only person missing the party is Mc Cain.

American Warmongering and Opportunism on Parade

Excerpts. The United States collectively speaking lost its mind last week during a multi-day orgy of smug self-satisfaction centered on the obsequies culminating in the state funeral of Senator John McCain. McCain became the Everyman American-style, embodying virtues that all red-blooded lovers of freedom should aspire to, a hero who fought “for the life and liberty of other people’s in other lands.” He was a man, according to the media, of matchless nobility who endured torture for love of country, a war hero who put down his sword before starting a long career in government service where he selflessly defended liberty and justice worldwide.

Unfortunately, very little of the story is true. The entire hagiographic saga of the warrior prince that has been woven around McCain by those in the media and the political world that want to use him to demonstrate the deficiency of those qualities in Donald Trump is little more than a work of fiction. John McCain was a monster, betraying his country while a prisoner in Hanoi and then his former comrades-in-arms after the war ended. From Vietnam he learned nothing, saying “I hate the gooks. I will hate them as long as I live.”

McCain subsequently embraced every war that came his way while also promoting regime change and doing his best to start new wars in places where America had no interests. Think Afghanistan, Iraq, Georgia, Ukraine, Somalia and Syria just for starters. A prosperous Libya was bombed into anarchy and is now ruled by gangs who have reopened slave markets. McCain was also an opportunist par excellence, parlaying his dubious war record into a political career and at the same time ditching a first wife whom he considered a liability to marry the daughter of a multi-millionaire Arizona beer distributor to finance his personal ambitions.

The number of politicians of all stripes and media hacks eager to climb on the McCain bandwagon is quite astonishing, particularly as the Senator’s real track record is well known inside the beltway. Songs of praise were of course expected from leading Establishment and Deep State toadies completely lacking moral compasses, to include George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Joe Biden, but even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, self-described socialist and darling of America’s progressives, enthused over the “maverick” warrior, whom she never had met, whose “…legacy represents an unparalleled example of human decency and American service.” Another leftist who should know better, Senator Elizabeth Warren, recalled fondly how McCain advised her “To always get in the fight and throw some punches.”

Only the honest and honorable ex-President Jimmy Carter has had the courage to buck the trend and tell it like it is regarding McCain, describing him in 2014 as a “warmonger.” Hanging the human decency label on McCain is the ultimate travesty as he is a man who actively promoted the policies that have killed millions around the world, to include thousands of his own countrymen. Indeed, he was a symbol of American interventionism, having led the Republican wing of the National Endowment for Democracy, a US government funded democracy promotion engine which has interfered in more elections and governments than even the CIA did in its heyday.

So who is the real John McCain?

….

So Am I loosing my compass airing Elisabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders or Bill de Blasio when they are right ?

Should I turn my back only because of political partisianism ?

We need sane debate in this World. With fake news don’t dream about it.

Fake News are part of Bill’s World whose first characteristic is cynicism.

Bill’s World is the Sponsor of Global Terrorism.

Thus… Fake News, as part of both (cynicism and global terrorism sponsoring), are praising the photograph who shot the heavy dark smoke after the melting down – 17 YEARS LATER – What a news and a discovery ! When you think that those same Fake News are the same sponsor of Bin Laden – al Qaeda, CIA – and the people talking about a compass or smoke or sight or vision… The entire panel is FAKE from tip to toe.

Unfortunately here is the bad news : as long as Bill’s World is ruling the World, you’ll never get rid of Fake News.

Bill’s World is anything but A Democracy.

How does it happen that the richest man in the history of the world is also one of the largest recipients of welfare in America?

….

If you can shoot something today shoot it, fake news have rediscovered the magical world of Photography. All of the sudden you might think, follow my backtracking. After praising TV talk shows and reality shows back to global plagiarism.

If she is doing it, opportunism commands anybody to try to, fake  news are out there for a fake competition in order to hand some fake awards.

Oh lately, just like that, here is a short sequence of pictures around La Marne bridges andtracks. Click to enlarge. Those pictures are from the city of Meaux by night.

Come by my sight and say to me « You have lost sight » while plagiaring. Remember cynicism and terrorism are twins.

That said this is the norm : if you want to be called a Winner, make too much noise – in bands – over something you stole from  others without citing the references of the pick – pretending by the way you are the author.

African AUTOMN Revolution is focused on this giant lying fabric where Black Identity and History have been hijacked and distorted by more of the same impostors.

Presidential elections in this 2018 year are setting a hallmark for a « Never Again » now that African people are getting the truth about their origin and bringings to the World, to Sciences and to Civilisation, long before Athena relayed the Fire.

So if you are an authentic black man or woman, Rejoice.

If you are not, keep rejoicing.

For only THE TRUTH CAN SET YOU FREE AND IN PEACE. IT IS NOT ABOUT FORGIVENESS. BUT JUSTICE.

How does it happen that the richest man in the history of the world is also one of the largest recipients of welfare in America?

Bernie Sanders

 

How does it happen, Elise, that the wealthiest man in the history of the world, Jeff Bezos, is also one of the largest welfare recipients in America?

It is quite simple, really.

Jeff Bezos and his company, Amazon, make huge profits by paying their employees wages that are so inadequate that many of them need public assistance just to get by. Today in America, thousands of Amazon workers are forced to rely on food stamps, Medicaid and public housing because they can’t survive on the wages they receive. Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos is now worth $158 billion, and his wealth increases by $260 million – every single day. How absurd is that?

And who pays for the public assistance subsidizing Mr. Bezos’ wealth? You do. The middle class subsidizes the wealthiest person in the world, while his workers struggle to put food on the table. That is what the rigged economy is all about. And in my view, that has got to end.

That is why I introduced a piece of legislation that aims to end corporate welfare by establishing a 100 percent tax on corporations with 500 or more employees equal to the amount of federal benefits received by their low-wage workers.

So, if a worker at Amazon receives $1,000 in food stamps, Amazon would be taxed $1,000 to cover that cost.

The bill gives large, profitable employers a choice: pay your workers a living wage or pay for the public assistance they need to get by. It’s common sense. Now I want you to send a message to my colleagues that it has your support, as well:

Add your name as an original Citizen Co-Sponsor of my Stop Bad Employers by Zeroing Out Subsidies (BEZOS) Act and send a message that taxpayers should not have to expend huge sums of money subsidizing profitable corporations owned by some of the wealthiest people in America.

Make no mistake about it, Jeff Bezos is not alone in this regard. Some of the most profitable businesses in America sustain their wealth through this kind of corporate welfare.

According to one report, in 2014, Walmart employees received at least $6.2 billion in public aid every year. Walmart is owned by the Walton family, the wealthiest family in the country.

More than half of employees in the fast food industry rely on some kind of public assistance.

McDonald’s workers are actually encouraged to sign up for assistance, and the co-owner of Burger King has a net worth of $25 billion, while his workers receive an estimated $356 million in subsidies each year.

According to a study from the University of California, low wages cost American taxpayers $150 billion every single year.

So let me be as clear as I can be: The government has a moral responsibility to make certain that every man, woman and child in this country has a decent standard of living and that we provide for the vulnerable in this country — our kids, the sick, the elderly and the disabled. It is not acceptable, however, that the American taxpayer is being asked to subsidize the wealth of some of the wealthiest people in the history of the world.

And it must end.

Please add your name as an original Citizen Co-Sponsor of my Stop Bad Employers by Zeroing Out Subsidies (BEZOS) Act and send a message that taxpayers should not have to expend huge sums of money subsidizing profitable corporations owned by some of the wealthiest people in America.

The economic and political systems of this country are stacked against ordinary Americans and in the favor of the most powerful among us.

The rich get richer and use their wealth to buy elections — just recently, it was announced that Jeff Bezos made a $10 million donation to a Super PAC that in one place is running ads supporting a candidate who will “work with President Trump to fight for Florida’s conservative values.”

For the rest of us, who don’t have the wealth it takes to buy the legislative outcomes they want, it’s survival of the fittest.

That is not democracy. That is oligarchy. Let’s work together to end it.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

Meet Zellnor and Jessica

 

Elise – For those of you not familiar with the IDC, here’s all you need to know:

They’re a group of breakaway Democrats who caucus with Republicans, handing them control of our State Senate. Want to know why Albany is so messed up and keeps blocking progressive change? Look no further than the IDC.

On Sept 13 — primary day in New York — voters have the chance to send these IDC members packing.

Two of these critical races are happening right here in New York City, and they need volunteers THIS WEEKEND to get out their messages. I’m hoping you’ll sign up to volunteer.

Let me tell you a little more about Zellnor and Jessica:

Zellnor Myrie has spent his whole life fighting for working people. As a legislative aide on the City Council, he helped draft the “Tenants Bill of Rights” that has helped so many New Yorkers stay in their homes. He was inspired to public service by his mother, who immigrated from Costa Rica with only the promise of a mattress in a friend’s apartment. He is running in District 20, which stretches from Park Slope to Crown Heights. Sign up to volunteer with Zellnor’s campaign.

Jessica Ramos is a labor activist who has served on her community board and as a district leader in Queens. As the daughter of an undocumented immigrant, Jessica knows what it means to be vulnerable and will fight for every vulnerable New Yorker. She has been recognized for her work on behalf of immigrants, LGBTQ people, and women and minority owned businesses. Jessica is running in District 13 which covers Jackson Heights and Corona. Sign up to volunteer with Jessica’s campaign.

Zellnor and Jessica need boots-on-the-ground help to win their elections, beat back the IDC, and turn New York into the progressive beacon we all know it can be. I’ll be out on the streets campaigning for them. Will you join me and sign up to volunteer for either Zellnor or Jessica today?

Frankly, most voters don’t know much yet about their State Senate races. So each call or knock on the door from a local volunteer can make a HUGE difference.

All my best,

Bill de Blasio
