I am a socialist. Socialism means a substantial ownership and control by ordinary people of economic institutions instead of a class of "owners" (billionaire capitalists) whose ownership under the rules of capitalism largely serves themselves in the forms of wealth and power as a class instead of society as a whole. By "substantial ownership and control" I mean in order to be a socialist that this applies to people who regularly at the very least support public ownership of major corporations and the Federal Reserve (a privately owned corporation that deceptively suggests a name which implies public ownership.) Ordinary people will decide what constitutes "public ownership" of a business, a government which will be directed by them, and which the economy serves the interests of the entire society instead of the transnational capitalists or even industrial capitalists.
We see today how the transnational capitalist class inspects our every move over the internet--and worst of all, they propose new digital IDs for everyone so that they can better control us. Because this new dominate, class-based system has fooled nearly everybody with their emphasis on their use of propaganda, psy-ops, gaslighting, censorship, and other means of manipulating peoples consciousness of the real world, I see the need for independent political analysts who serve the interests of ordinary people instead of the billionaire-rich.
this class-based system
still uses violence and the threat of violence to attain compliance when
all other means fail. That is why the USA is involved in many wars and
have about 900 military bases all over the world. That is precisely the
reasons that the ruling capitalist class has established NATO: to impose
violence on any nation that thwarts its ambition to rule the world.
All the lists, which are in alphabetical order, are based on my experience of more than 12 years of running this website. The first list of websites are those that I feel advocate socialism and reliable information about this distorted capitalist reality. But all lists include dissident writers are based on honesty and, for the most part, propaganda-free deceptions. Especially in the third list, I don't agree with all of their geopolitical views and analyses, but we should listen to all honest views and stay away from corporate-financed news and geopolitical reporting.
- Breakthrough News Frequency: very roughly, about twice a week. With reference to the lead article of today (9/24/2022): I have a fundamental, brief commentary which separates me from the position of the ideology of the Breakthrough News. Whereas Brian Becker (notice that Eugene Puryear does not) goes to the Leninist's roots, I argue, based on historical experience that includes the active opposition of the capitalists of various nations starting in the British-led capitalist opposition in the early years after the Russian Revolution, that socialists, led by the socialism in China, have another strategy to organize and establish socialism. Chinese socialists, under the Chinese Communist direction, have embraced capitalist enterprises while not succumbing to their capitalist system based on evidence of today's rather sudden awakening of the Empire's fear of a competing nation and ideology. They have under the Chinese Communist Party controlled the components of capitalism to help them build socialism by co-opting Chinese capitalists to facilitate the building of socialism in China. They have marvelously succeeded in eliminating poverty and developing their economy with the help of profit-seeking capitalist enterprises of the de-facto US/British/Zionist Empire. The Chinese Communist Party have deceptively used capitalist dedicated-to-profit enterprises to construct their own advanced economy and to inspire and lead most of the world! They have done so by preserving a large socialist economy. Today Russia has preserved a substantial segment of the socialist economy, based on the historical experience of the earlier Soviet era, while permitting capitalist enterprises but not succumbing to capitalist ideology that profits are "alles" (def).
- CADTM Selections about sovereign debt by Eric Toussaint, a French socialist 7/18/2022: I could not access this website today, and I have been unable to access this website since 7/17/2022. Another victory for censorship? 7/26/2022: Today I was able to access this website. 7/30/2022: I wasn't able to access this website. 7/31/2022: Same today. 8/1/2022: I have not been able to access this website since 7/25/2022. 8/3/2022: I have access today and all the days since then!
- Caitlin Johnstone
Johnstone is an Australian with her American husband, Tim Foley, also
reading the script in the audio section of her article, but you may miss
supporting examples, illustrations, supporting links, etc. She blogs
- Covert Geopolitics The censorship of real news and analysis is getting worse by the day!
7/24/2022: Still cannot access it--the same experience as yesterday.
7/25/2022: Haven't been able to access this website since
7/22/2022--another success for the censorship fans! 8/11/2022: I discovered that if you don't have VPN on your computer as I
don't, you can access this website with the same web address as the
original! Mystery that needs to be solved. 8/13/2022: I can't access
this website since yesterday, but working on the problem. 8/14/2022: As I did,
if you hurry, you can access articles, and all articles from this
website are free of censorship. 8/25/2022: I had no difficulty in
accessing this website. 8/26/2022: Ditto yesterday. Since 8/24/2022 I
have had no difficulty accessing this website.
- Dissident Voice
- Global Research GR is a Canadian aggregated website recommended for people who have limited time except
on the issue of "climate change" which Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, a
Canadian and the founder of the website, addresses climate destabilization rarely since the
recent IPCC reports were issued. Years ago he considered it as a "hoax".
Many writers on his re-posts have at least socialist leanings. 8/14/2022: I could not access this website today.
- Global Times Reputedly express the views of the Communist Party of China.
- Guns and Butter Bonnie Faulkner, the owner of this website infrequently posts in-depth interviews of independent and top geopolitical thinkers for about an hour. 9/26/2022: There is new post today with Laurent Guyenot, a French intellectual who has written many posts, regarding 9/11/2001: The World Center attack, the grand propaganda project that changed whatever Americans thought about the USA and promoted the national security state and Zionist (right-wing Jewish) influence.
- Internationalist 360° Frequency: nearly everyday. This website provides an essential third world perspective on world political issues. 9/15/2022: There is a post on today's edition by Pepe Escobar that I agree with, particularly when he writes "This is an existential war. A do or die affair." or a class war versus an extended family war (think Margaret Thatcher). Putin is fighting this war between the de-facto US/British/Zionist Empire and its army (NATO) versus the rest of the planet like it is a "Special Operation". Maybe Putin and company are trying to avoid WWIII. (See today's discussion among the four participants on The Duran show.) 9/16/2022: See the post entitled "Why Azerbaijan Attacked Armenia: Azerbaijan Playing a Proxy Role for the US and Israel".
- John's Newsletter Frequency: "The Ol' Hippy" posts about two times a week.
- Media Lens
Frequency: A British left-wing weblog that has lately been publishing roughly
twice in a month. 9/15/2022: There is a new essay on today's post by their two top editors, David Cromwell and David Edwards.
- Middle East Monitor
- MintPress News
(based in Minneapolis) Scroll down to the section labeled "Featured
News" for the latest posts. They focus on mainly, but not exclusively,
on Mid-East issues. I especially recommend articles by their top journalist, Alan Macleod, whose
reporting and analysis often gets to the essence of issues.
- New Eastern Outlook
8/30/2022: I initially got a page that looked like Russian, but I soon
found the button which I clicked on "Eng" (in the upper left-hand
corner) and I found success with the English addition.
- Peoples Dispatch
- RT I also advise you to access the "World News"
on this website as a contrast with major media (propaganda) in the USA
and in the
de-facto US/British/Zionist Empire which comprises much of South
America, much of Europe, Israel, and of course in the former British
Empire, the prime nations of this Empire, the British former
planted colonies like Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Because of
rigorous censorship by corporate media located in the Empire and
throughout much of the world, you won't find a number of dissidents
living in these areas.
- Sputnik News
This website furnishes a Russian perspective of world events. I have
not been able to access this website since 6/26/2022. In its place, I
a propaganda-filled fake website. Finally, on 7/9/2022 I had access to
the real site, but I have had no access since then. 8/8/2022: I accessed
the website today. It appears that this website can be accessible when I
don't use VPN from certain areas of the globe. It is accessible now.
- Strategic Culture Foundation
Based in Russia but features international writers offering their views
on very significant topics. I've had no difficulty in accessing this previously censored website since 9/4/2022. 9/26/2022: Today I have had problems in accessing this essential website.
- The Cradle
Judging by its suffix "co", this website is based in Columbia, but
recently Pepe Escobar said that The Cradle was based in Beirut,
Lebanon--Colombian expats currently living in Lebanon? The website posts most articles by Pepe Escobar, a great Brazilian journalist currently based in the Middle East.
- The Grayzone Frequency: about two per week.
- The Wall Will Fall Vanessa Beeley, a British journalist
- Titanic Lifeboat Academy
Caren Black, a retired educator, runs an aggregated website and
occasionally writes articles herself. She is especially concerned by the
climate crisis and the aggressive foreign policy of NATO. Although not
comprehensive as Global Research or RT, this is another website that
who have limited time, can access and keep up on most general world
events and their understanding. 9/18/2022: Pay close attention to this article.
- UK Column
- Unlimited Hangout
(Whitney Webb) Webb is coming off of a maternity leave, and hopefully
she will return to full time writing. She has closely followed the
Epstein mysteries (the attempt to corrupt Anglo leaders of the de-facto
US/British/Zionist Empire--with "entertainment" provided by "recruited"
young women--whose "activities" can be useful to Israel). Look for her articles in a
variety of websites.
- Unlimited Hangout on Odysee (Whitney Webb) Frequency: ?
- Behind the Curtain - Edward Curtin Frequency: roughly once per two weeks. His religion, the Roman
Catholic religion (if my memory is correct), weaves in and out of his
perspective on social and political issues. But to his credit, he has often exposed
the lies behind the Kennedy assassination and his brother which, in his
view, began the slow disintegration of the USA.
- Brownstone Institute
- Clandestine’s Newsletter on Substack. He/she is based in San Francisco, California.
- Consent Factory, Inc. C. J. Hopkins is an expat living in Berlin and writes mostly satire with a sardonic twist. Frequency: roughly once per three weeks. I suspect that he is some kind of anarchist. 8/26/2022: I notice that he has another outstanding article today! 9/12/2022: Another!
- Consortium News The weblog features posts and re-posts about relevant events. Frequency: about three times a week. 9/12/2022: Today, I recommend this article. It reminds me of my rather in-articulated thesis contained in this commentary and this essay.
- Craig Murray Frequency: about once a week. Murray is a Scotsman, retired British diplomat, and supporter of Scotland's independence.
- Declassified UK A left-wing website which includes anarchists, is based in Britain. Frequency: roughly two times a week.
- Franc Analysis on Odysee. Frequency: roughly once every two weeks. Recommended by Eva Bartlett. I am including this on Odysee because Rokfin charges you to subscribe.
- Gonzalo Lira on Rumble Frequency: Roughly twice a week. This self-identified "conservative" currently lives Karkov, Ukraine and he and some of his guests provide a commentary on the conflict from this location and Europe. (Also, his posts are collected in "YouTube--my subscriptions" with possible exceptions due to censorship by YouTube.)
- Geopolitics & Empire
on Odysee. Frequency of posts: roughly twice a week. Hrvoje
Morić, who is a former professor of
history, of Croatian descent, and currently resides in Mexico in spite of being
born and raised in Chicago. He comes from a conservative perspective and is very critical by
infringes of his freedoms. Morić has recently been outspoken in his
political beliefs which is laced with the Catholic religion and the
Christian bible (he was raised in the Catholic Religion). Morić has
given fascinating interviews of independent dissident thinkers for about
an hour or less. Also, he does interviews with independent people on a radio show on TNT.
- George Eliason I am pleased to add this interviews Eliason on the recommendation of Vanessa Beeley at her blog The Wall Will Fall: "I interview independent journalist George Eliason based in Donbass for shocking insight into the predatory nature of NATO member states."
- Johnny Vedmore Frequency: Roughly once a month.
- Jonathan's Newsletter
(on Substack) By Jonathan Cook, a Brit, a former journalist of The
Guardian, and one of the world's top independent journalists, has
returned to Britain after living in Nazareth, Palestine for 20 years.
- In Gaza - and beyond
(Eva Bartlett, a Canadian journalist) Bartlett has moved to Russia and
has been residing there for a year. Thus, she has since focused on the
Ukraine war. I have included her on my selection of YouTube's posts.
- Middle East Eye (Based in London)
- Moon of Alabama Bernhard,
an astute German independent blogger, comments on, and analyses
policies and trends, behind major world events. 9/16/2022: Bernhard
corrects many false reports from the Empire's media. 9/20/2022: Today's post is all about Putin's speech heralding another Russian phase of the conflict in Ukraine.
- Nature Bats Last
Prof. Guy McPherson is a retired professor of biology at the
University of Arizona. Based on his discoveries and research, he expects
abrupt climate destabilization in the near future. He is some kind of
- Off-Guardian Frequency: Nearly everyday. 7/14/2022: I recommend this important article and this on the same topic that most of alternative media has overlooked.
- Our Finite World--Gail Tverberg She is a master actuary (statistician); and for her, the numbers (of the economy) don't add up to any solutions to our many crises.
- Panquake (an introduction) A design-modeled social media (under development) to safely serve your interests. They need and deserve your financial contribution now.
- Russell Brand on Rumble.
- The Last American Vagabond Avoid Ryan Cristián's articles, otherwise you will spend several hours on his video and audio posts. Especially look for articles by Robert Inlakesh, Whitney Webb, and Derrick Broze.
- The Most Revolutionary Act Stuart Bramhall, US citizen, who was living and working in Seattle as a psychiatrist, a refugee from FBI harassment (in my opinion, because she, like actor Jean Seberg, had intimate relations with African-Americans and supported their issues). Bramhall currently lives in New Zealand where she found employment and escaped further FBI harassment. She re-posts an article which she sees an critical importance nearly everyday, and occasionally she writes one herself. (She wrote a book by the same title as her website.)
- The New Atlas on Rumble
Brian Berletic who I have followed many years. He is an ex-Marine who
lives in Thailand with his family nearly 20 years, and has also been
published in New Eastern Outlook.
- The Pulse A Canadian website which focuses mostly on issues related to the "covid pandemic". 9/11/2022: Be sure to watch today's post.
- The Saker
Frequency: You will find posts on this website daily except for most weekends. You can access Pepe Escobar's articles here as well as other articles
of interest. Founded by Andrei Raevsky ("The Saker"), who is descended
from White Russian immigrants (essentially capitalist armies who fought
against Bolsheviks during the Russian Revolution of 1917) and who, after the defeat of White Russian armies,
the family immigrated to Europe and he eventually became a US citizens. Raevsky, who is
the founder and administrator of the website, who after receiving threats
from governmental/corporate authorities, he moved his server to one in
Iceland. Post of special interest to all American socialists and people who
are addicted to corporate propaganda media (CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NY Times, Washington Post, etc.): How the West uses its propaganda skills to defame its enemy countries. It is a post by a journalist from China and a part of a webinar and posted on The Saker (The Empire Strikes Back: Imperialism’s global war on multipolarity--2:48:10).
Today (7/8/2022) I had a problem accessing this website. I will try
to find a fix this. Meanwhile, try another browser (I'm using
Firefox with ExpressVPN). "The Saker" is back online after a day or two
of failed access. 7/31/2022: I had difficulties accessing this website,
but I finally succeeded. Since then I have had no difficulty accessing the website.
- Voice for Science and Solidarity
This website is founded and run by Geert Vanden Bossche, a world
renowned virologist who is rather recently concerned by the methods of
the UN's World Health Organization, whose top funder is Bill Gates, to
cope with the covid pandemic and anticipated pandemics. WHO's head is
none other than Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus of the aggressive Tigray
province of Ethiopia which has been trying to destabilize Ethiopia and propagandized by US-based corporations like CNN, Facebook, and Twitter.
These facts raise several questions: Could this be another project of
the CIA? Could the appointment of Ghebreyesus as head of the WHO be a
coincidence? 9/20/2022: Be sure to watch the video reproduced on this website entitled "Friday Roundtable with Children's Health Defense".
- YouTube--my subscriptions
I particularly like this selection in spite of YouTube's tendency to
censor. Although I cannot identify all of this selection as being
pro-socialist, but they are honest in contrast to mainstream media which
always practice deception and propaganda. However, most of them are
hampered by their western education overflowing with indoctrination of
capitalist theology. In spite of this limitation, these are posts,
especially those of the Duran and
the American-Chilean Lira, who is a self-described conservative living in Karkov, Ukraine, are among the best
posts I can deliver to my followers. To obtain a different point of
view, I also recommend to my followers
regarding the YouTube channel by Li Jingjing, a journalist employed by a
major newspaper in China. We who live in the Empire have a
hard time to learn about China from honest journalists employed by
capitalist corporations because they have a virtual monopoly of news
reporting worldwide. Then there is Danny Haiphong who is a real socialist. 7/12/2022: I recommend this
which indicates news "management" (propaganda) and censorship is prevalent across Europe.
7/20/2022: I am also including
YouTube's "BestEvidence" channel by John Titus and adding to my
provisional list after viewing one dated 8/14/2021. Also, he has posted the past week. I
recommend that you view the Titus's videos because they will educate
you about money and the self-serving changes that our ruling capitalist
class advocates. You should learn that our ruling masters don't care a
about us, but about them and their families. I am adding Titus's
channel to this collection
of videos on a provisional basis on the strength of a recommendation of
west coast friend who I have relied on frequently. 9/3/2022: If you have
the time, I definitely recommend viewing the Gonzalo Lira's post and
discussion with Clifton Duncan and Chris Martenson. If you want to
thoroughly understand what happened on Jan. 6, 2020, I recommend the
post by The Grayzone in a mockumentary with Katie Halper of Biden's
recent speech to please his bosses in the ruling capitalist class and not the people in the USA. 9/11/2022: Be sure to watch the post by The Pulse. 9/14/2022: I am dubious that Freddie Sayers, host of "Unherd", because he introduces Clint Ehrlich as a "realist". It sounds like Ehrlich is jumping on the bandwagon of the "Ukraine Offensive". Contrast this with articles by Pepe Escobar and Bernard's Moon of Alabama.
9/16/2022: I recommend the post that features Scott Ritter (The
Grayzone). I have removed The Herd from this selection because of their
manifest bias toward to the British aristocracy of the British ruling
class. 9/19/2022: Be sure to
watch the video featuring Russell Brand in today's selection of YouTube
videos. 9/25/2022: Gonzalo Lira and his chosen guests reveals his conservative bias (brainwashing indoctrination) in this anti-communist diatribe (Roundtable #23: James Lindsay, Murray Allen) and not a bias imposed on the US population by the Democratic administration, one of two political parties permitted to have a mass following in the USA by the capitalist ruling class. Lira, although born and raised in Chile, was educated at US universities where he received conservative indoctrination. 9/26/2022: Berletic exposes the role of the de-facto US/British/Zionist Empire's media to shape news and analysis to alter your thinking (propaganda) about events in Iran and in other nations. Eva K. Bartlett exposes the reality of the terror campaign throughout eastern Ukraine supported by the proxy Neo-Nazi Kiev regime.
- A Son of the American Revolution
Larry Johnson is presently a historian at the College of William &
Mary and was about 20 years ago employed at the State Department & CIA.
- Children's Health Defense (founded by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.) Scroll down to the section labeled "The Defender" for their latest posts.
- Children's Health Defense--Europe Frequency: roughly once per week. Founded by attorney Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
- Glenn Greenwald Frequency: about once a week.
- Naked Capitalism
- Paul Craig Roberts Frequency:
Nearly every weekday and occasionally on weekends. I haven't seen a post on holidays. Roberts is a
former Asst. Secretary of the Treasure in the Reagan
administration. Roberts always exhibits a pro-Reagan bias because of
this. He is an old-fashioned capitalist (industrial
capitalist) that soon became superseded by the neocons, the more
finance-oriented faction in the Deep State who went on to take control
of the Democratic Party in the USA and are key supporters of the
right-wing Jews (Zionists) of Israel.
- Peak Prosperity Chris Martenson, PhD, who is administrator of this website, seems to be advocating "back to the land" by cutting most ties to city and government services. Thus Martenson is an anarchist who believes that the existing society is so thoroughly corrupt, and the best way to deal with it, is to cut ties with the larger society. He has also contributed to the unraveling of the many mysteries of the "covid pandemic".
- The Exposé A British website which has been covering the
extensively. The only problem is that they consider "climate change" as
nonsense. This is precisely because the capitalist system has driven us
off the cliff of irreversible
abrupt climate destabilization. Thus, according to their view,
capitalism is good and "climate change" is nonsense. I'm putting this on
a provisional basis because they have not cited a British government
source in today's (9/11/2022) article
entitled "Government publishes horrific figures on COVID Vaccine
Deaths: 1 in 482 dead within a month, 1 in 246 dead within 60 days,
& 1 in 73 dead by May 2022". I am a geopolitical expert but I have closely followed medical posts during the covid pandemic. Given the latter fact, I stick to my uncompromising principle that because any "vaccination" carries a risk of an adverse reaction associated with it, all vaccinations should be voluntary. 9/20/2022: I found that I was essentially forced to use a Microsoft version of Excel (Microsoft Edge) to access the data. Because I don't trust Microsoft, I declined. 9/26/2022: I have reinstated this website because I have found none of the above errors since 9/11/2022. If you think I am in error, please notify me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your evidence.
- The Ice Blog Frequency: about once per month.
- The Unz Review Founded by Ron Unz, a retired physicist, who has a brilliant mind but limited by anti-Jewish attitudes (although he is a Jew--101.25m)
which seem to be fading appropriately into a view that targets
right-wing Jews (Zionists). And, he seems to be moving to the true left
as he includes more articles by Pepe Escobar, who in my opinion, is the
best journalist and geopolitical analyst in the world, and economist
Michael Hudson. Meanwhile, you will find articles criticizing the
faux-left (the fake left on the political spectrum mostly represented by
the Democratic Party). Many non-socialist writers have been confused by
the appearance to the faux-left, created and promoted by the current
capitalist financial ruling class via the Democratic Party. These
opportunists will use anything to obtain their primary object to
dominate and control the world. If you
read all articles on this website, you will still find articles attacking
faux-leftists; but meanwhile you will be wading through the swamp of
racist ideas like the ideas argued and promoted on behalf of white
supremacy. We must be patient with Unz. To his credit, Unz's most
important contribution has been uncovering the many mysteries of the
"covid" pandemic and revealing what is underneath--a US biowarfare project to attack China and Iran and the series he wrote about the subject. I think it was developed for the above reasons in addition
to the objectives by the transnational ruling capitalist class (the de-facto US/British/Zionist Empire's plan to dominate and control the world) partially to reduce the
world's population of ordinary humans and to save themselves as a ruling class dominating the entire world. The covid pandemic also raised the suspicion of a Russian microbiologist Igor Nikulin. Therefore, I urge you to read articles by Unz, Pepe Escobar, Scott
Ritter, etc., and ignore most of the rest of posts
by various unproven writers on this website. 9/21/2022: Ron Unz posts an article by Jonathan Cook!
- Wall Street on Parade Founded by Pam Martens and Russ Martens who find lots of misdeeds regarding Wall Street. They blog almost daily except for weekends and holidays.
