  1. From Time: "The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election" A breakdown from David Freiheit:
  2. Once in a while, the swamp lets a bit of the truth come out, but they frame it in such a way that it's not noticeable. https://time.com/5936036/secret-2020-election-campaign/
  3. I was referring to Hilary. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DXDU48RHLU
  4. Also, look up articles about a talk with Spielberg and Lucas, who talked about the possibility of the industry imploding: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2013/jun/13/steven-spielberg-george-lucas-film-industry Later, Spielberg corrected writers and said that that's not what they meant, but all of the factors that may lead to it are in place: ever-increasing budgets, heavy reliance on tent-poles to survive the dump months, heavy reliance on an international market in order to get at least a 250-percent return on investment (because movies involve a production budget plus a large sum
  5. You keep saying that my position is wrong but you can't explain why. Meanwhile, you talk about Carter's background but not why he tolerated what happened in Iran, El Salvador, and elsewhere. Here's why: Foreign affairs and international relations involves realpolitik. That is, it's not a matter of what's good or bad but what's right or wrong, and what's right or wrong is based on what's advantageous or not for the U.S. regardless of what debt is passed on to its gullible public or how many people in other countries suffer or die. That explains the background of what you mentioned ear
  6. I think it's not so much film stars but the content of movies themselves. That is, as the tent-pole phenomena grew together with large amounts of credit, more films had to remain the same to justify high ticket sales, decrease opportunity costs by lowering development time, and meet growing markets abroad. Hence, films that deal with spectacle, use lots of CGI, hit the PG sweet spot, are over two hours long, have plots that are easily to follow so that movies can cut across multiple cultures and language groups, large budgets for marketing, and a focus on tested formulae, which means prequels,
  7. The U.S. was funding Iraq: https://nsarchive2.gwu.edu/NSAEBB/NSAEBB82/ Before that, it was supporting Iran and its dreaded SAVAK after it overthrew its democracy: https://www.npr.org/2019/01/31/690363402/how-the-cia-overthrew-irans-democracy-in-four-days and then started making deals with Iran: https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/features/reagan-iran/ while supporting Islamic fundamentalists to counter the Soviets in Afghanistan, after which supported their opponents, composed of Northern Alliance drug pushers and rapists, leading to a return of poppy prod
  8. They are warmongers because they support attacks or control of other countries in order to control resources like oil or for strategic advantages. No less than a formal U.S. President made that claim: https://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/04/18/jimmy-carter-us-most-warlike-nation-history-world who himself was not immune to it: https://dash.harvard.edu/handle/1/33825944 And the same applies to Biden, as shown in the videos presented earlier. Warmongering is obviously connected to neoconservatism because of the need to keep the petrodollar propped up plus justify incre
  9. Here are some past videos featuring Biden and articles about him concerning war and even police action: https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/10/15/20849072/joe-biden-iraq-history-democrats-election-2020 https://www.vox.com/2019/1/10/18173132/joe-biden-hillary-clinton-2020 In general, he has a long history of warmongering and calling for more authoritarian action concerning crime, which makes him similar to Bush and Obama. Some of his actions even involve supporting Bush and the Republicans. These combined ideologies of neoconservatism (
  10. When you look at Biden's past speeches, you will see that he is a warmonger like Bush and Obama. This should not be surprising because the U.S. has been promoting neoconservatism coupled with neoliberalism since the Reagan administration, and this has led to death and destruction for many countries, especially those in the Middle East. Very likely Biden will target China in the same way Obama tried in his 2012 pivot to Asia. Hopefully, more countries will be strong enough to resist that.
  11. Yes, but countries like Singapore have already indicated that they will not join Biden in his plans concerning China: https://www.newsweek.com/singapore-will-not-join-bidens-cold-warstyle-coalition-against-china-says-pm-1548692 Hopefully, more from BRICS and forty emerging markets worldwide will act similarly, i.e., engage in bilateral agreements and trade deals rather than join the U.S. in saber-rattling.
  12. My point is to show that he is a "corporate Dem that supports the U.S. war[-]making industry." Given that, I don't think "healing" will take place.
  13. The Apu trilogy The Human Condition trilogy
  14. That's the same U.S. intelligence agencies which have been employing false flag operations since the 1950s!
  15. The U.S. promoted almost four decades of Reaganomics and warmongering, leading to incredible levels of debts for the U.S. and untold suffering for many countries, and Biden was in office throughout that time.
