    I heard some of this the other day on the radio. The state Governor is behind this 'effort' Operation Lone Star, I mean. The guardsmen are basically losing their life...styles because of this bogus show by the states Mr. Macho Man, By God, I'll protect the border if the Feds won't ... Governor. He's an ass, and the one I told my daughter a few years ago that if I saw him I would pelt him with rotten eggs And this macho man doesn't care if he is in a wheelchair.

    This case is not symbolic. This case will have ripple effects.

    At 1:39, "I was unaware that leftism is, like, super classist."

    At 2:50, "This is an Imperialist take."

    At 4:10, "Russia hasn't been a communist country in a really long time. They're capitalist. And siding with the capitalist Russian billionaires over Venezuela is definitely a unique leftist take."

    At 6:10, "In the United States we have a capitalist economy that isn't planned. Meaning that it isn't Biden that needs to produce more oil. It would be the oil companies who are currently sitting on thousands of leases...that they're not using." "Often, companies will lower supply to increase profit."

    Capitalism.

    Beau addresses the author of the email. "Let's be clear, none of this is a leftist take... You're not a leftist, you're a Russophile." "Russia hasn't been leftist country in a really long time."

    It's a right-wing, capitalist oligarchy.

    Hi DT, all it takes is a little thought, if one is capable of it.

    I've been hearing the proposition, what if Mexico decides to join a Russian alliance? That's their choice, eh? They're a sovereign nation. Who are we to say yea, or nay?

    Is that true, DT ... I don't think Mexico would do it, unless they are feeling a little ignored. It is interesting that the U.S. gets a lot of input from Canada and they seem to be moving away from being a cool country to being more like the U.S., unfortunately.

    Mexico gets mostly sh*t from the U.S. but they still harbor an 'American dream' whether justified or not.

    In this one Beau directly addresses the "very dangerous" attitude of American Exceptionalism.

    Here's some Trae for the Day.

    "Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is thoughtlessly obstructing their usual dogwhistle gas lighting bullshit by being imminently qualified and they don't know how to handle it."

    "She would be the first justice with any real public defender experience. I find it telling that our nation's highest court has apparently looked at new candidates like, "hey, should we get someone who's represented average Americans facing head on the life altering impact of the system we both shape and represent?" "No, fuck that, tell me who they clerked for."

    Enough attention has been gotten that Beau is now under scrutiny. His regular name is Justin King. He was born in Japan to a military family, then moved to America. I have family who lived in Japan on a military base and raised their kids there for many years. The mother was from Texas and has no discernible southern accent.

    Back in 2015 Beau was investigating police state activities in Chicago, and discussing prepping and bugging out. Anyone recall Jade Helm? I haven't listened to these yet.

    He has done 'adversarial journalism'.

    He's an animal rights activist who focuses on wolves. He's talked about this in his videos.

    You can book Beau here.

    It looks like Beau leans/has leaned towards anarchism.

    Here's Beau and Marianne Williamson having a chat.


    (you can judge a book by it's cover, it's content, or some other thing...)

    Why did the cops even shoot? Because they can? Because it's fun to shoot people? Why?

    If unions and the collective power of workers wasn't effective, corporations would not spend so much money trying to stop labor organization. Don't underestimate the power of the collective workers. (and women)

    yes, unions are the only hedge against the monsters, but as is so typical the higher one goes in unions the farther removed they are from the rank-and-file. Ultimately, they end up in the pockets of da' man!

    Misogyny in Intelligence? Say it ain't so. The mistaken tropes about intelligence are pretty stupid. Folks will shoot themselves in the foot before admitting certain people can be very smart.

    Beau explains how the gun debate is about to drastically change. The new hot gun with its powerful ammo will be wiping through people in a way the AR15s just don't. The carnage is going to be bad. And the anti-gun sentiment is going to grow drastically. The 'gun rights' folks have shot themselves in the foot on this issue. Guns have become a status symbol and a toy.
