    I am still proud to have supported Kucinich in 2004 and 2008. He is one of the very few politicians in the West who is actually a decent human being. He is not a warmongering shill like nearly all the others. In a small gathering, he was electrifying. The media always highlighted his worst moments, for obvious reasons.

    Constituents don’t think for themselves, they blindly believe what the government and the media want them to think. This country is made up of mindless lemmings headed for the proverbial cliff…

    “Polarization” is an exercise in missing the point, to be quite frank. What’s really been happening is that the politics which were always underneath the surface but ignored or suppressed by the media are leaking back up as the politics of the “center” (the Democrat and Republican uniparty) reveals itself utterly unwilling or incapable of solving people’s problems.

    INDEED, CRANK IT UP!!! “Because it’s not just a matter of having a conversation with the choir. IT”S ABOUT TAKING the discussion to a higher level to try to describe for people what’s actually happening, what can happen.” DENNIS KUCINICH

    Closing out 2022 (Shut the Front Door), listening to “The Man who should be President,” DENNIS KUCINICH, unpack’n the machinations of the war machine’s dirty, grubby, bloody tentacles’ far & wide reach, into every nook & cranny of plant, animal & human life, is simply the best. “We, the People,” can handle the truth. TY!

    Fingers crossed, Chris Hedges & Dennis Kucinich, there will be many more “Conversations” to come, about “other” present & future opportunities for Dennis “for the people, by the people, of the people” Kucinich!!! EIGHT (8) TERMS in Congress!!! TY. Onward & Upwards.

    What a great interview with a great icon of American politics. Kucinich understands that to be a true politician you can never be merely politic. Truth abides whatever the weather. Thank goodness Consortium News provides a spot for Chris Hedges’ news network.

    The Democrats and ‘fake’ protest movements.

    When Republicans hold the White House, the Dems organize protest movements. Then, when the Dems gain the White House, the Dems dismantle their previous protest movement revealing them to be fake.

    We saw this during Bush up until 2009, when the Dems ran an ‘anti-war’ protest movement in order to power their taking control of the wars … which of course continued under the Dems without future protests. We saw this again in 2020, when the Dems ran a ‘black lives matter’ movement, until the Dems got full control of the po-lice when Biden changed his tune to ‘love the police’ and ‘fund the police’ with all your money.

    I’m not saying the participants in the movements were fake. But the organization was clearly fake, as revealed when the Dems obviously pulled the plug on the protests. This has been a method by which the Democrats have kept the ‘left’ attached to their party as they have moved so very far to the right that Reagan today would be a California Liberal supporting strange ideas like nuclear disarmament in an era where the Democrats want nuclear arms and want to use them.

    This is the history of the tricks that the Dems and the Fake Left have pulled over the last two decades to destroy the actual left and replace it with a pro-war left that loyally does what Biden and Wall Street commands.

    Thanks for telling me that I was right to leave the Democrats and support Nader when I did. Everything in the Democratic Party since has been a fraud and a lie.

      Yup! – I voted 3rd party in ’96 and ever since – if more of us had done that we would have a much better Gov’t by now …
