Liberalism: What Happened To The Party Of The People? (w/ Guest: Thomas Frank)

Here progressive author and broadcaster Thom Hartmann interviews author Thomas Frank whose book on Amazon is linked, below. One point made by Mr. Frank is that the successful fundraising of Bernie Sanders during Campaign 2016 proves that the Democratic Party doesn't have to be rotten with corporatism (my wording, not his) in order to win elections.

Of course, then Democrats would be beholden to We the People and expected to act on our behalf which is not part of the Global Government script that Washington follows though you may not hear such sentiments in the following interview! jc

Listen, Liberal: What Ever Happened to the Party of the People?

And here is the Natal Chart of Jimmy Carter born October 1, 1924 in Plains, Georgia under a protective Water Grand Trine composed of his Scorpio Moon, Uranus, and Pluto, plus, a dynamic T-Square configuration between his know-it-all Mercury-Uranus opposition with religious Jupiter at apex in its own sign of Sagittarius. Within these patterns are his impressive intellectual capacity, talents for technology and mathematics, and his nuclear interests. A gift for diplomacy is in there somewhere--with his 12th house Sun and Ascendant, both in Venus-ruled Libra, I suspect. jc

What Happens When Neither Political Party Answers to the Bottom 90%?

Here is Thom Hartmann on his interview with author Thomas Frank concerning a Democratic Party that ain't what it used to be. So you've noticed the hollowing out and the resulting lack of democracy, too?

Thomas Frank on unionizing and the Obama presidency

It's time to give voters the liberalism they want, says Thomas Frank.

We voted for it. Didn't we? Will it matter?

Since I've been trying to find more details about the issue of union organizing, its pros and cons, Franks' article fills the bill on that score, but it also contains his views on Barack Obama's victory, governing from the center, and what the governed want from government.

Now I know what you're thinking: McCain didn't try, he was only a fake candidate - the same role that Al Gore and John Kerry played.

Gore meekly accepted the SCOTUS decision after wimpily protesting the recount/chad situation in 2000.

Then John Kerry pulled a lofty "I'm above their attacks" air for Swift Boaters using the Michael Dukakis model and let Rove stomp all over his military record, one of the few things Kerry had going for him.

2008 comes along, and McCain picks Sara Palin as VP stunning mate and she played the role of Flash In The Pan Mama while getting herself some national name recognition for later use. Oh - and she'll soon have a book she wants you to buy.

Why, it's almost as if gnats like me are correct when we say the American people don't elect the president, he's selected from a private stash by a secret cabal from the shadows.

And it's almost as if America's two most elevated natal planets on each side of our national *Midheaven describes a secret government for all the world to of the signatures of Saturn-Neptune IS secret (Neptune) government (Saturn.)

Perhaps the great majority of us are the only ones who can't see it even as it hides in plain sight, m'peops.

But we now know from blowback that others in the **wider world feel its wrath and have had enough.

And we now know that all the power elitists do, they cover themselves by acting in our name: America.


* Using 'Sibly' version or the Dane Rudhyar chart for July 4, 1776.
** 'wider world' = the Midheaven, the most visible point in any chart, the noon point.

Video Tour of Washington: Thomas Frank

Here you see Thomas Frank in his car readying to motor about and show us something of Washington DC, kind of a then and now overview.

No, it isn't often I mention books for sale on my blogs. Perhaps if I had one for sale myself, I'd get into it more.

Well, there is my children's book with Pattillo Armadillo but his ultimate destiny is on hold at the moment, he's totally unaware of America's precarious precipice, and frankly I haven't the heart to bring it up since, like most critters, he has plenty of troubles of his own these days.

Anyway, Mr. Frank, author of The Wrecking Crew, has done me some good showing my old DC stomping grounds even though viewing the video has had quite the expected effect upon my populist sensibilities because...

look what they've done to my favorite city.
