This Changes Everything--Take Two

Next time you hear some Naomi Klein groupie repeat her idiotic mantra "This Changes Everything" regarding the 'clean energy/New Economy' scam, you might remind the gullible moron that the bank bailouts did, too.

Time for American Regime Change

The American regime of two corrupt political parties that favor Wall Street over Main Street is the message young people need to carry with them into the California and Oregon primaries, as well as to the streets outside the DNC in July. As noted at Shadow Proof, this is a movement, not a cult.

Young people, fed up with the oligarchy that Clinton and Trump represent, voted overwhelmingly for Sanders in the primaries he lost, and they are by no means Democratic Party loyalists. And why should they be? They have been betrayed in every way possible by Obama and Clinton for eight straight years, and their future is bleak with either Clinton or Trump in the White House.

Whatever happens at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, or in the general election, the movement Sanders' campaign catalyzed is the only hope for democratic renewal in the US, and the only hope for humanity, that is suffering from relentless American aggression. A little creative anarchy and social organizing against what Clinton and Trump stand for couldn't hurt a bit.

Renewable Energy Unsustainable


Energy demand is much more than electricity. Electricity is only 18% of energy demand worldwide. 82% of energy demand is for manufacturing, transportation, housing and food production--using fossil fuels. 

Solar and wind energy currently provide 3% of total world energy demand. Switching to electric vehicles would double electrical demand, requiring burning more fossil fuels and mining of rare earth minerals for batteries, often in regions that are militantly resistant to having their homelands ravaged.

Electrical storage and grid infrastructure for solar and wind energy creates increased energy demand to mine minerals, as well as to manufacture and transport materials for this new infrastructure. Mining and manufacture of solar and wind infrastructure generates toxic waste, as well as polluted air and water.

Solar and wind energy systems have to be replaced every 30 years. It takes a ton of coal to make a dozen solar panels. Renewable energy without massive cuts in energy demand is thus unsustainable. With two million people born every week, consumerism and militarism are wasteful energy habits we can no longer afford.

Hillary Goes Ballistic

Hillary goes ballistic in her campaign's netwar against Sanders. It's the equivalent of 'shock and awe' by the candidate of Wall Street, unnerved by the growing support for the voice of Main Street.

Googling the White House

In the ideal totalitarian state, the state knows everything about you, and you know nothing about it. When the state forms a partnership with corporations that control information, that makes it a lot easier--for them. When the state is reduced to a conduit for transferring public wealth (your tax dollars) to private parties (Wall Street), controlling information is essential to preventing public organizing against corruption.

Doing the Numbers

As of today, the numbers in the Democratic presidential primary are Clinton 1,442 and Sanders 1,209--a 233 lead for Clinton. There are 1,400 delegate pledges left, 475 in California alone.

In other words, it ain't over.

 

Cutting Pensions

True to form, Obama -- Son of Reagan -- bails out banks, then cuts worker pensions.
