    Can't stand this clown. Russel Brand, I mean. He's way too radical now. And once that happens, once belief becomes set in concrete, there's no going back. He's in a cult, which is part of a greater cult.

    Having listened to more of Brand, I have to say, his politics mirror my own, to a large degree. It's the anti-vaccine paranoia that gets on my nerves.

    I'm in agreement, OG. I've found these videos of his to be too fear and anger oriented. His other more spiritual ones are better. But the clicks are likely happening more with this stuff.

    Juicy headlines create more clicks, more clicks mean more revenue. I don't know if Russell is in it for the money though, he's already rich.

    I looked Schulte up on wiki and couldn't find a page. Maybe I didn't look hard enough. I did find a reference to 'association with a socialist journal'.

    Did I hear Brand say, "I don't know if any of this is true". Is that possible?

    The Clintons are alarming. Hillary is awful. If anybody is watching the Netflix series, Ozark, do you wonder if the Byrds are the Clintons? Excellent and highly educational series, for anyone interested in money laundering, drug flows, casinos and how that money ends up funding legit institutions, start ups, campaigns, etc...

    Listened to half of it, so far he is correct. I've heard all of this before from legit sources. The Clinton Foundation brokered arms deals and accepted donations from foreign leaders. "Accepted donations from foreign leaders" reads a lot like, "ran a protection racket" to me. I truly hate this woman with every fiber of my being.

    I think the only thing that bugs me about Brand currently is this over arching paranoia about the RESET and think he is another one who is conflating it with government restrictions to control contagion. Anyway...

    Hi OG, yeah, it is very suspenseful. The biggest problem I've had with right-wing propaganda, which I'm sure is an unintended side effect is that you can't believe anything 'Them' say even if it is true. My 1st extinct is to say, no, and then look for an alternative source for corroboration. I have rarely found any and in the process uncovered reasons why the right has always targeted them. They are 'southerners' in nature, and they despise the right. Need we know more?

    You can also learn about money laundering, casinos and drug flow examining the Trump family. There's really only one reason you bankrupt multiple casinos.

    I just wish people would stop talking about Hillary running again. It's an epically stupid idea. Not that that will stop anyone.

    And I do have trouble believing so much of what people say about the Clintons because there's so much noise it's difficult to find the signal. The garbage heap of lies smells so bad it's hard to find the real rot. When people keep piling it on, it becomes almost meaningless. And the Clintons become nothing more than straw men. The backfire could result in people so angry that they decide to vote for her. Especially after getting burned so badly by Trump. Not a good road.

    Thanks Wind,

    I am going to start listening more to Brand--spiritual videos and otherwise. Glad I took the time to watch the Hillary video. His claims are not off base. As Dreamtimer says though, it is darn hard to separate fact from fiction, in that arena but she chills me to the bone. One of the reasons, I figure she is unelectable is people have an intuitive visceral reaction to her. What I don't get is why anybody who voted repuglican didn't get as much or more of the same reaction from the former pres, who will remain nameless.

    Why didn't they get that vibe? Maybe they did and voted anyway. The bottom line is power. I heard many people say that they thought he was deplorable but noted for him anyway because...fill in the blank with a word or phrase:

    Israel. Taxes. The Wall. Fear(of some sort or another).

    Why they thought he would protect them is the real puzzler. All they have to do is take their own decades long advice: Look at the Record! It was a litany. A mantra.

    But they didn't do that with Trump.

    It's just about power without care for lives and well-being. Making someone else pay for your woes. (and your wall)
