Richard Wolff on the Jimmy Dore Show

The Jimmy Dore show has posted this in three video segments.

1. Marxist Economic Theory Easily Explained w/Richard Wolff

They don’t go into a lot of depth here, but I still think it is quite thought provoking,

2. Worker Co-Ops Are Wildly Successful But U.S. Media Ignores w/Richard Wolff

I have heard Richard Wolff talk about Worker Co-Ops before, but somehow this video answers some of the questions I have had about scalability of the idea. I actually think I have heard him talk about the Spanish co-op Corporation before. I don’t know why that example didn’t stick with like I am thinking it might now,

3. We Aren’t Prepared For Capitalism’s Failures w/Richard Wolff.

Every now and then, I listen to some video from Richard Wolff. This is a good one. This is the part I listened to first.

Proof that DNC manufactured the Russian controversy in June 2016

IWB (Investment Watch Blog) has the article Proof that DNC manufactured the Russian controversy in June 2016.

Democrats manufactured the Russian interference story as a disinformation campaign all the way back in June 2016.

And this post will prove this beyond reasonable doubt with evidence. Not just that, but there is great circumstantial evidence of illegal activity going all the way up to the Obama administration, and provides new motive for why Seth Rich was murdered.

The evidence is presented in this post.

I can’t attest to the truth of this article. I haven’t followed the claims to inspect the documents as the article describes them. However, it the article adds some interesting speculations that are just as believable as various other sides have speculated.

In every such article there seems to be a point where the author goes overboard in inflating the certainty of the evidence. Here is the quote from this article that I find crosses the line.

The pertinent point is that: the metadata forensic proof is irrefutable that Warren Flood, or someone who owned a copy of Word registered to Warren Flood, shoehorned in obvious “Russian” fingerprints all over the documents. Guccifer 2.0 is none other than a botched DNC creation to create a false flag for Russia.

It might have been that the person doctoring the document knew who Warren Flood was, and wanted the evidence to show his hand in the conspiracy. I would hardly call that irrefutable, as I just refuted it.

You might want to refer to my previous post The Disinformation Playbook to ponder over what techniques mentioned there might have been put into play in the subject of the current blog post.

The Disinformation Playbook

The Union of Concerned Scientists has the web site The Disinformation Playbook.

How Business Interests Deceive, Misinform, and Buy Influence at the Expense of Public Health and Safety
There are many things we can do to keep the Disinformation Playbook from sidelining science and disabling democracy. It’s a team effort: scientists, science supporters, public officials, journalists, and companies themselves all have a role to play. Find out more on our Stopping the Playbook page.

Here is a video on one of the 5 techniques described on the web site.

I have read the home page of this site, but there are many links that I have yet to follow. I’ll be looking at these links as time permits.
