How can the Democrats say anything about Trump meeting with Putin when Obama said he had flexibility with them secretly and Hillary took millions from them? All Trump has done is try to make Russia, a nuclear power, and the US friends. They’ll attack him no matter what.

I’ve been wondering why we haven’t had any leaks.. Former top FBI lawyer Lisa Page testified during two days of closed-door House hearings, revealing shocking new Intel against her old bosses at the Bureau, according the well-placed FBI sources. Alarming new details on allegations of a bureau-wide cover up. Lisa Page tossed James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap among others under the Congressional bus, alleging the upper echelon of the FBI concealed intelligence confirming Chinese state-backed ‘assets’ had illegally acquired former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 30,000+ “missing” emails, federal sources said. The Russians didn’t do it. The Chinese did, according to well-placed FBI sources. SOURCE: — TruePundit — Wow. HUGE if true. If Lisa is really being honest about what happened and implicating her former bosses in a criminal cover-up, she will be regarded as a hero. And if true, this means China hacked Hillary’s email server and the FBI covered it up. Her server had almost no security and was easy for many to hack, and not just state actors. That’s why it was ‘gross negligence’ and she deserves to be in prison for what she did. Others are locked up for doing 1/10th of what Crooked Hillary did. Here I am thinking Seth Rich leaked the emails when it could have been China this whole time. UPDATE: ABC, CNN, WAPO have picked this story up.
Taxation of the rich is a very necessary tool for an early socialist state — especially one succeeding an industrialized nation — as it serves as a mean to redistribute wealth equitably. •
However, it should be duly noted that taxation will become completely unnecessary and inapplicable at a higher stage of socialism, and eventually, communism. •
This is because once the workers fully control the means of production, currency as a means of trading and purchasing commodities will cease to exist. •
Production will be done on a need-based model, and labor for functions otherwise carried out by the state (i.e paving of roads), which require taxes, will be reimbursed with equally-valued goods from the society, as opposed to with taxes.
The entire liberal media had an epic melt down yesterday after President Trump met with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. They claim they are unbiased, objective “journalists” bringing you the facts. What a joke these clowns have become. They think they are experts in foreign policy and diplomacy when in reality they are immature children having emotional reactions on live television. They don’t have the facts about the private meeting the two leaders had behind the scenes but are pretending they do. Donald Trump went to Finland to meet with Putin because he wants to improve relations between our two countries. If he wanted to insult and publicly humiliate the leader of Russia (like these media idiots apparently wanted him to), he would have sabotaged the entire meeting and made it a big waste of time. And even if Trump firmly went after Putin during their press conference, these same hypocrites would have been saying that he is destroying relationships with major countries. These people who think of themselves as “experts” obviously have no worldly idea how negotiations should work. Not only that but they are extremely over-the-top biased. Their hostility towards peace efforts is very un-American.
ON WEALTH INEQUALITY: ▪️The most blatant indication of the imminent collapse of capital is the sheer amount of wealth concentrated with the bourgeoisie. This is purely resultant from its natural tendency to shift wealth away from the many to the few.
▪️According the most recent study by Oxfam International, the global wealthiest 8 individuals own as much wealth as 50% of the world population.
▪️This concentration not only leads to instability, it undermines capital itself. While the percentage of bourgeois wealth continues to grow, the workers and consumers are increasingly left with little financial ability to buy ever-expensive commodities. Thus, the bourgeoisie will begin to lose their profits and revenues, and the system will bring itself down.
As minuet as his treasonous acts may have seemed to most people; I feel a revolution should’ve taken place during this time. It was known that the government had spied on people, kept technology away, & had ultimate power. We’re so much deeper into authoritarian tyranny at this point it’s saddening. We need to continue to educate and learn so that the next generation will have freedom. Also anything you can do capitalism wise do it. Money is very important in he coming years. It’s the only way to beat the feds. #capitalism#revolt#fuckauthority#tyrannydefense DKA
It's a beautiful evening in East Van.
I've been finding myself thinking, the last few days, about the me too movement. What I've been thinking about is that if we want men, and even other women, to listen to us and believe us when we share our experiences of harassment or assault, or better yet, if we want them to ask and be curious about our experiences. If we want them to speak up for us and be our allies. If we want them to read a book or Google it and not ask us to do the work of explaining misogyny and patriarchy to them...
We MUST extend all of these behaviours ourselves, to people of colour, queer and trans, and disabled folks. When someone tells us about their experience in the world that is different from ours we need to genuinely listen and process and then go read and learn about white supremacy and so on, not ignore it, fight it, tone police, tell them or even think they are being too sensitive etc.
I've been thinking of this in relation to women of colour having their content deleted on social media for talking about their own experiences of racism. And then I read a blog post the other day at rumyaputcha.com called Yoga and the Maintenance of White Womanhood. Putcha tenants how she told a white woman that she didn't like her colloquial play on the term namaste and why it's problematic, and was banned from the studio for making the white woman feel uncomfortable.
Really white women, wtf. Are we that insecure???
My call to action today for myself and anyone reading this is to ponder, how and where do I take the harm I personally experience as a woman (or wherever) and reproduce it and act it out on other people to preserve my own sense of Status quo privilege and power? Where do i take the power I have and use it against people more marginalized in the same ways patriarchy use it against me? How does this keep me from my own liberation as a human and as a spiritual being?
