What Power Does Amid Uncertainty…

“For centuries, men benefited from the jurisprudence of certainty while women and vulnerable people did their best to navigate the jurisprudence of doubt. We were told to trust that the lawmakers would protect us. For centuries women and vulnerable people fought to upend that power imbalance: Rules for you, power that answers to nobody for the rulemakers.

Maybe the irony of never learning who leaked the Dobbs opinion is that the court claims to care deeply yet doesn’t care to find out. And that is what “rules for thee but not for me” looks like. Maybe a population that lives in an unsettled legal system in which precedent, predictability, and order are gone, to be replaced by outcomes that are as yet undetermined, shouldn’t feel entitled to an accounting from the court about who stole a document in an unprecedented national betrayal that became part of another unprecedented national betrayal called Dobbs. The not-anniversary, the un-investigation, the expanding national jurisprudence of uncertainty—that’s the new rule of law.”

“The days of the American empire are numbered, says journalist Chris Hedges, and the evidence is all too clear for anyone who’s studied history. Our rampant militarism abroad combined with neglect of the domestic needs of any but the wealthiest citizens describe a grim future for the United States, he says. And if you think progressives in government might help us avoid that destiny, think again – The Squad and their ilk are merely controlled opposition designed to provide false hope for change.

Jimmy and Americans’ comedian Kurt Metzger discuss with Hedges the calamity that elites have wrought in condemning the United States empire to the dustbin of history.”

“Do you remember when Democrats were the anti-war party, the party that questioned U.S. imperialism, the party that wondered why we needed to spend so much money to kill people all over the globe when there were so many here at home in need of assistance? Well, those days are long gone, journalist Chris Hedges notes, as Democrats have joined their voices in near unison to support increased military spending on the War in Ukraine, to say nothing of the rest of the Pentagon spending

Jimmy and Americans’ comedian Kurt Metzger talk to Hedges about the upside down world we live in where more Republicans in Congress object to U.S. warmaking.”

I’ll NEVER Cross The Democratic Party! – Says AOC…

“During a recent Instagram Live chat, New York Congresswoman and “Squad” member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explained why she and her colleagues refused to “Force the Vote” when Democrats took control of the House in 2021, unlike what the Freedom Caucus did earlier this month. Her response was enlightening, underscoring how AOC has become a complete Democratic Party insider and wholly abandoned the “bring the ruckus” persona that helped sweep her into office as an ostensible threat to the Democratic Party power structure.

Jimmy breaks down all the ways AOC unwittingly acknowledges she has betrayed her supporters and become just another lying politician.”
