Anthropologist Margaret Mead is famously quoted as giving credit for most social and cultural change to small groups of individuals who pioneer new priorities and establish new systems. That certainly describes many individuals around the country who are working on the American public banking frontier with multi-year commitments of time, talent and energy, going through the hoops, chicanes, reversals and exhilarations required for creating entirely new banking institutions dedicated to democratizing control of public money for public benefit. We talk with several of these pioneers about their motivations, process, challenges and concerns – snapshots of 21st Century American democracy – as the movement for public banking picks up speed from coast to coast.
We continue tracking developments in major news stories we’ve been discussing, and we return to our open-forum question on whether a burgeoning opposition movement that emerged during the 2016 presidential election and sparked hope of independent politics has succumbed to the old Democrats-vs-Republicans political paradigm.
Election 2016 offered proof that millions of voters had had it with a tone-deaf two-party system that seemed woefully out of step with their America. They served notice in many ways—switching parties, not voting, supporting independent candidates and movements instead—and created momentum for new political possibilities and choices.
But as the dust settled after the election, it seems things have returned to their “original” state, with politics largely a matter concerning Democrats and Republicans.
The Conspiracy Guy #15: The Wikileaks release of documents about the capacities and practices of the CIA in infiltrating networks and spying on Americans, including the ability to falsify the sources of hacks (as having been done by Russians, for example), renders the CIA’s claims that Russia hacked the DNC files an enormous joke! The unrelenting attacks upon President Trump for being “out of touch with reality” is contradicted by the revelation of a dozen instances of CIA spying on foreign leaders and American journalists, which puts the lie to the protestation by an Obama spokesman that Obama never conducted surveillance on an US citizen. The law, moreover, grants the power to initiate electronic surveillance without a court order by going through the Attorney General. It thus appears that Loretta Lynch was the party who, at the President’s direction, allows the surveillance to be conducted on Donald J. Trump during the campaign and prior to election. Mark Levin has documented (from public sources) the history of the campaign against Trump, which now appears to be part-and-parcel of an effort to overthrow the government of the United States by means of a “soft coup”. Whether or not it succeeds may well depend upon the speed and extent to which the new president is able to “drain the swamp” before he he overwhelmed by a completely unscrupulous media campaign, which confirms what William Colby, then its Director, explained to Congress, namely: that the agency owns everyone of significant in the mainstream media.
He’s been in office just six weeks, but Donald Trump has already worn out his welcome. His abrasive nature, unrelenting narcissism and tendency to play fast and loose with the facts are just a few of the reasons he’s polling as the least popular U.S. president this early in his term of office.
