Moon Jae-in is being exceedingly diplomatic but should go forward in unifying North and South Korea regardless of the outcome of Trump's negotiations

I think Moon is giving Trump one last chance to get a deal Trump and Kim can both live with. However, I more than suspect that Moon will make his own deal with Kim if Trump can't pull off a deal in a reasonable time. Moon knows that the two Korea's can't go on as they have and that they need to unify regardless of what any other nation or nations may or may not want. I believe Kim is smart enough to know all of that too.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in told U.S. President Donald Trump in a call on Tuesday that his country is willing to open economic engagement with North Korea as a "concession" if it will hasten Pyongyang's denuclearization, Moon's office said. [Source]

Trump, Sanders, right, and wrong

Both right, both wrong:

“Bernie Sanders endorsing Crooked Hillary Clinton is like Occupy Wall Street endorsing Goldman Sachs,” Trump tweeted.
...
“Trump said tonight, ’We are born free, and we will stay free,’” Sanders said. “I say to Trump: People are not truly free when they can’t afford health care, prescription drugs, or a place to live. People are not free when they cannot retire with dignity or feed their families.” [Source]

Jewish supremacists, apologize to Poland

Poland "never had a collaborationist government.

"Thousands of Poles risked being executed by the Nazis to help or shelter Jews. ...

"... Shamir, the late Israeli prime minister, had said Poles killed his father. [Source]"

Shamir is one of the racist Zionists who said Blacks are monkeys. He was also an open terrorist. He believed all Goyim (non-Jews) are a subspecies, a different race, and inherently inferior to all Jews by reason of blood, DNA, and the like. He was a Jewish supremacist.

What a joke: "U.S. President Donald Trump and members of the administration have charged that Cuba’s security forces and military control Venezuela’s."

Dear God,

Spare us all from Donald Trump's lying, alternate-universe imaginings about Cuba and Venezuela.

Thank you,
Tom

Honestly, just exactly how stupid, ignorant, and sealed off does Donald Trump think the American public is? Cuba controls Venezuela's military. I burst out laughing the instant I saw that.

At this point and as much as I hate militarism, Nicolas Maduro should invite military forces from China, Russia, India, Iran, and any other friendly nation, to come to Venezuela as peacekeeping forces: a coalition against US imperialism.

The US bypasses the UN when it wants. It's time other nations collectively stand against US economic and militaristic imperialism. Where and when better than right now in Venezuela?

Nicaragua is correct, and democratic Taiwan is correct to support Nicaragua in the face of anti-democratic imperialism.

Nicaragua is one of a shrinking number of countries in Central America that still offer U.S.-ally Taiwan diplomatic support over China, which considers Taiwan sacred [hogwash; Xi is an atheist] Chinese territory.

China and Taiwan have for years traded accusations of "dollar diplomacy" as they seek support around the world, offering generous aid packages in return for diplomatic recognition.

Self-ruled and democratic Taiwan now has formal relations with only 17 countries, almost all of them small and less developed nations in Central America and the Pacific, including Belize and Nauru. [Source]

"Self-ruled and democratic Taiwan" is correct. Nation-states are shameful that recognize the claim by the totalitarian dictatorship of China to ownership of Taiwan.

Democratic Taiwan is correct to monetarily support Nicaragua against anti-democratic imperialism.

Populism correctly defined is the Greatest thing, the best form of government!

We do not live under populism or democracy in the USA. We live under a self-appointed and trickster corporatist-capitalist elite lording it over the entire rest of the people.

The vast, vast majority of people incorrectly define the term "populism." Even so-called experts do. Some do it intentionally.

Populism is for the people as a whole (regardless of any other classifications) against 1) a self-appointed elite lording it over them or 2) an elite who've tricked the people into agreeing to be lorded over by them.

Populism is always democracy. It is not the people choosing one or a few to lord it over them where the people give up their power and authority to remove or replace those chosen to lead. It is not a populist move to give up populism. It is an anti-populist move to give up democracy. It is not a democratic move to vote to get rid of democracy. Democracy furthers democracy. It does not extinguish itself. Any move that extinguishes populism or democracy is anti-democratic.

I am a populist, a progressive, a democrat, a socialist, a Christian. I strive to be consistent in these things to the best of my God-given ability.

Hogwash on Populism: "How populism became the concept that defines our age"

Wake up! Populism and Nationalism are not synonyms

Exactly: "Why Economic Populism Is a Winning Strategy for Obama"

Has America Always Embraced Capitalism?

Has America Always Embraced Capitalism?
...
As recent polls have shown, millennials have become increasingly critical of capitalism and increasingly supportive of socialism. Symbolized by the popularity of politicians including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders, and the rise of the Democratic Socialists of America, this younger generation appears to be looking for a different way forward.

This is complicated by the fact that many Americans have little idea what socialism means, though more often than not the term is used to refer to increased corporate taxes and better welfare programs rather than the rearrangement of our social lives away from profit maximization and wage labor towards cooperation and the collective management of work.

The Movement And The 2020 Elections

The wealth divide has gotten so severe that three people have more wealth than the bottom 50% of people in the country. Without the support of the rich, it is nearly impossible to compete in elections. In 2016, more than $6.5 billion was spent on the federal elections, a record that will surely be broken in 2020. More than half that money came from less than 400 people, from fewer than 150 families.

...

This is an old story that each generation learns for itself: the Democratic Party cannot be remade into a people's party. It has been a big business party from its founding as a slaveholders party in the early 1800s, when slaves were the most valuable "property" in the country, to its Wall Street funding today. Lance Selfa, in "The Democrats: A Critical History," shows how the Democratic Party has consistently betrayed the needs of ordinary people while pursuing an agenda favorable to Wall Street and US imperialism. He shows how political movements from the union and workers movements to the civil rights movement to the antiwar movement, among others, have been betrayed and undermined by the Democratic Party.

...

Enacting a Green New Deal. The Green New deal has been advocated for since 2006, first by Global Greens, then by Green Party candidates at the state level and then by Jill Stein in her two presidential runs. The issue is now part of the political agenda thanks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She and Senator Ed Markey led the introduction of a framework for a Green New Deal, which is supported by more than 50 Democrats including many presidential candidates.

Their resolution is a framework that the movement needs to educate and organize to make into real legislation to urgently confront the climate crisis, which has been mishandled by successive US presidents. The movement must unite for a real Green New Deal.

The Green New Deal has the potential to not only confront the climate crisis by shifting to a carbon-free/nuclear-free energy economy but to also shift to a new economy that is fairer and provides economic security. Remaking energy so it serves the people, including socializing energy systems, e.g. public utilities, could also provide living wage jobs and strengthen worker's rights. It will require the remaking of housing, which could include social housing for millions of people, a shift from agribusiness to regenerative agriculture and remaking finance to include public banks to pay for a Green New Deal. The Democratic leadership is already seeking to kill the Green New Deal, so the movement has its work cut out for it. [Source]
