Epstein Dead, Morrison Gone, Manning Jailed & Parents Stolen

Does Trump Have A Foreign Policy Plan??

We’re Always Right!


Fear vs. Fear

TruthDig | Chris Hedges

The old rules of politics no longer apply. The only language understood by Donald Trump and his coterie of con artists, billionaires, generals, misfits and Christian fascists—and a Democratic Party that has sold us out—is fear. Calling out Trump’s lies and racism does not matter. Calling out his nepotism and corruption does not matter. Calling out the criminality of his administration does not matter. Calling out its incompetence and idiocy does not matter. Calling out the abject subservience of the ruling elites to corporate power does not matter. Trump and his Democratic Party opponents are immune to moral suasion.

Hello!

The Ledger is back and thanks for returning. I’m saving the laughs for my videos. I want to talk about something serious.

Many Americans went through hell last weekend as dozens were murdered by white supremacists targeting people of color. There is nothing that I can say that makes this better.

White supremacy needs to be uprooted from society and not just here at home. Our wars abroad are justified with the logic of white supremacy. The logic of colonialism was white supremacy. The ad campaigns that trick us into purchasing plastic shit that ends up in landfills thrives on white supremacy. Our police were literally born in the slave patrols following federal laws to return enslaved people to the white men who considered them their property.

The logic of white supremacy doesn’t only create suffering for the majority of people on this planet who aren’t white, it also draws our attention away from other issues causing the majority of people who aren’t well-off to suffer every day. While Americans blame foreigners and people of color for the slow-motion collapse of our national hegemony, the mega-wealthy are consolidating their power and wealth.

White Americans who support racism deserve condemnation, that includes those who aren’t actively murdering people because of their bigotry. But the rest of us also need to double our efforts to fight back against this scourge that terrorizes immigrant communities, black communities, native communities, & Latino communities.

We need to end racist violence from civilian gunmen, from police officers, from capitalists AND from our soldiers abroad. We need to do it now.

How a Small Group of Pro-Israel Activists Blacklisted MintPress on Wikipedia

MintPress News | Whitney Webb

For over ten years, Wikipedia has been a key focus of right-leaning, pro-Israel groups that have effectively weaponized the online encyclopedia as a means of controlling the narrative when it comes to the state of Israel’s more than 50-year-long military occupation of Palestine.

Hello!

Welcome back to The Ledger. Congratulations to any of you in Puerto Rico on your recent success kicking out your governor. I’d love to hear some of your experiences if you email me at LeeCampLedger@protonmail.com.

Puerto Rico’s victory goes in the “good news” category. In the “bad news” bucket is the Arctic on fire, Europe still baking, and our politicians still owned by billionaires.

We need action.

We need true resistance.

We need an anti-capitalist Green New Deal that strikes at the heart of industrialism.

If you still need to be convinced that we need action NOW I’d like to recommend Naomi Klein’s book This Changes Everything: Capitalism Vs. The Climate.

People living in poverty need you now. The rich have their own plans to survive climate change - they don’t care about us. We need to care about each other.

The Top 5 Ways to Defeat ICE Agents

The Democrats and the corporate media will breathlessly tell you how Donald Trump is a racist (he is). They’ll relay the gut-wrenching horror of having your family ripped apart by Border Patrol (I’m sure it is). They’ll let you know that keeping children in cages is not what America stands for and not who we are (it kinda is). But despite all of this, they practically never tell everyone how to actually fight back against ICE raids and Border Patrol detentions.

Hello and welcome back to The Ledger!

I performed in Minneapolis this weekend, and I really appreciate everyone who came out. I had a great time and I hope you all did too. Next month - LONDON.

I’ll be in London on August 18 performing with the wonderful Eleanor Goldfield. And then I’ll be in Wisconsin for two shows in September.

We need to keep on fighting against the western war machine’s ambitions in Iran, Venezuela, and wherever they show up next. The Military Industrial Complex will never give up when they can smell a profit.

Remember, in both Iran and Venezuela, it was US meddling that caused their crises. We’ve sanctioned the shit out of them both. We’ve held coups in both. We’ve provided material support to terrorist rebels. And our war hawks won’t just let their investments go to waste.

Organizations like Code Pink & Answer Coalition need to be overflowing with fresh members, so check them out.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson Is the Ultimate Expression of Neoliberalism in Collapse

Novara Media | Aaron Bastani

Future historians will reflect on the events of this week as an extraordinary snapshot of the present moment. Today Boris Johnson has been elected leader of the Conservative party, by tomorrow he will be Britain’s prime minister. On Thursday London expects to see temperatures above 35°C, as the country’s public conversation – through sheer observation – comes to accept the reality of climate change. In the Persian Gulf, meanwhile, a regional cold war continues to turn hot, with members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard interrogating crew members of the UK oil tanker Stena Impero. The rise of the extreme right, climate systems breakdown, the slow ebb of American hegemony, Britain’s inability to navigate a multilateral world. Days which crystallise the stories set to define the coming century.

Mother Jones Is Failing Its Namesake

FAIR | Naomi LaChance

Kevin Drum, a political columnist for Mother Jones, wrote in a blog post (6/26/19) last month that he did not understand why workers do not want their employer to work with the government agencies carrying out President Donald Trump’s brutal immigration policies, particularly Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). When workers at home goods website Wayfair staged a walkout because their company was supplying bunk beds  and mattresses for a child detention camp in Texas, Drum could not fathom their insubordination.

Climate Change References Are Disappearing From U.S. Government Sites

EcoWatch | Jordan Davidson

It's no secret that the Trump administration has championed fossil fuels and scoffed at renewable energy. But the Trump administration is trying to keep something secret: the climate crisis. That's according to a new analysis from the watchdog group Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI) who found that more than a quarter of the references to climate change on .gov websites vanished.

News The Corporate Media Is Scared You'll See!

THE ONE-MINUTE RUNDOWN:

  • Jeffrey Epstein has been caught… again. Maybe he’ll see justice this time — on Redacted Tonight this week

  • Ray McGovern of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) weighs in on the continued collapse of the Russiagate narrative — on Consortium News

  • My guest this week was Daniel Haiphong who came onto the show to discuss his book questioning the false narrative of American exceptionalism — on this episode of VIP

  • Bernie Sanders has enemies in the mainstream media & they’re back up to their old trick of misrepresenting polling data to make him look less popular — on TruthDig

  • I bring you a large dose of news beyond my other shows every week on the podcast I make with Eleanor Goldfield — Common Censored

  • The chemical pollutants that corporations are happy to put in our bodies have real effects on our development — on Grist

  • A key part of the Russiagate narrative has fallen apart. A federal judge says there is no provable connection between the Russian government & the Internet Research Agency — this week on Viewer Questions

  • Trump caused more of a shitstorm than I think he was comfortable with this weekend when he tweeted that four congressional women of color should go back to their countries. Three of them were born in the US and Rep. Ilhan Omar is a citizen. The Real News Network looks at what this might mean for the tenor of the 2020 election. Hint: it’s going to be ugly.


Welcome back!

I had a great show in Kansas City this weekend and the billionaire, child-sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein is being charged for pimping children again, but there’s a lot the mainstream media isn’t telling you.

I really appreciate that you choose to listen me and I have a slate of great content for you this week.

Remember — to paraphrase Chris Hedges — we all have a duty to rebel now. Find people organizing against the deportations, our impending climate crisis-caused extinction, or an end to homelessness. Help them.

If you are already organizing for a better world. Thank you! I do my work to boost yours.

I have a show this weekend in Minneapolis and I hope to see you all there. I know that’s unrealistic but I can try to manifest it — don’t judge me!

Two out of every five children in the neighborhood tested positive for lead between 2005 and 2015.

The Sanders Campaign Is Fighting Back Against Biased Media Coverage

Yet in a July 12 New York Times analysis of multiple public opinion polls asking likely voters whom they would choose for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sanders ranks second, behind Joe Biden.
